= First published by the author in German in 1858, this first English edition brought Krapf the esteem that he deserved. His journals formed the basis for the famous travellers that subsequently explored East Africa, Burton and Speke. Krapf was the first to report the existence of the "snow-capped mountains" in the area that we now know as Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Kenya. Henze III, p.70ff; Howgego III, K22.
