The volume gives a valuable account of mission work among the Bechuanas, with notes on the customs of the natives, and a description of the earlier travels of the author and some information is afforded respecting the reformed savage Namaqua chief "Africaner". The appearance in Cape Town of this convert was the cause of much wonder and astonishment, his arrival having been awaited with considerable scepticism by Lord Charles Somerset, who was much struck with this example of the results of missionary enterprise, and who "expressed his pleasure at seeing thus before him one who had been the scourge of the country and the terror of the border colonists."

= With loosely inserted extra map ("Wyld's Map of the Sources of the Nile"). Howgego IV, S54: "(...) Speke and Grant returned to England in the summer of 1863, certain that they had settled the question of the source of the Nile, and on 22.6.63 Speke delivered his narrative at a public meeting of the Royal Geographic Society. However, he now came up against his old rival Burton, who questioned whether the lake that Speke had seen from the north in Buganda was the same as he had sighted from the south in 1858. Other questions soon arose and gained academic support (...) Moreover, Speke's report was condemned by the society as inadequate and superficial, and was hardly a match for Burton's rival publication, The Nile Basin. In September the British Association for the Advancement of Science arranged for the two rivals to confront each other at a public meeting in Bath. Speke, already in an impaired physical condition, nevrous and depressed, with a dislike of public speaking, knew he could be no match for Burton. However, on 16.9.64, as the conference hall filled in anticipation of some lively dialogue, Sir Roderick Murchison made the astonishing announcement that Speke had been killed the previous afternoon while out shooting partridges. (...) The official verdict of an inquest was that his death was accidental and that his shotgun had discharged while he was surmounting a wall, but doubts lingered on in the public mind."
