He was the first Englishman to take high office under the Egyptian government. Although well-equipped and accompanied by a substantial number of troops, he had to contend with the hostility of the slave-traders (who fought several pitched battles against him) as well as that of the terrain' (Blackmer Sale). Samuel Baker (1821-1893) was a British explorer, naturalist, and big game hunter, chiefly remembered for his exploration of central Africa and the "discovery" of the Albert N'yanza (Lake Albert), the source of the Nile River. With him was his wife, a voluptuous Transylvanian he had spirited away from a Bulgarian slave market under the nose of the local pasha, saving her from a lifetime in the harem. Taking the name Florence, she would never leave her husband's side (Howgego, The book of exploration, p.256). Florence Barbara Maria von Sass (1841-1916) must be one of the best-kept secrets in the annals of African exploration (Robinsin, Wayward women, p. 3-4).Hess & Coger 179; Ibrahim-Hilmy I, p.49; Czech p.11; Gay 2578; Scheybeler, Paolo Bianchi Collection, 25; Howgego IV, B10.
