Following a particularly treacherous and difficult route which included a five month journey through the Ituri rain forest and having lost two-thirds of the party, Stanley eventually convinced Emin Pasha to leave Equatoria in 1889. The six etchings by M.G. Montbard were specially prepared for this edition-de-luxe, and each is signed in pencil by the artist.
