A fascinating and detailed map of central Africa, from the Atlantic to the Indian Ocean showing the route taken by Henry Stanley's expedition along the Congo River and across the Congo Free State. Not only does the map focus on areas unknown to Europeans just a few years earlier in the continent's equatorial regions but also those eastern African areas such as Kenya and Uganda. The red line running across the map depicts the route of the Emin Pasha Relief Expedition of 1886 to 1889, one of the last major European expeditions into the interior of Africa in the nineteenth century, ostensibly to relieve the Emin Pasha, General Charles Gordon's besieged governor of Equatoria, threatened by Mahdist forces. The expedition was led by Henry Morton Stanley and came to be both celebrated for its ambition in crossing "darkest Africa", and notorious for the deaths of so many of its members and the disease unwittingly left in its wake.
