WEINTHAL, Leo. (Ed.). The story of the Cape to Cairo Railway & River Route from 1887 to 1922. The romance of a great project and how it has materialised. London, The Pioneer Publishing Company Limited, 1923-26.4 volumes + map portfolio. Original black hard-grain half morocco, spines lettered and decorated in gilt. Profusely illustrated with mounted photographic portraits, halftone plates (many folding) and text illustrations, and folding maps, most in colour (of which 12 in the map porfolio). First edition. - A lavish tribute to one of the most glorious failures of the empire, the project conceived by Cecil Rhodes as "The Iron Spine and Ribs of Africa". By 1914 there was already a 2,600-mile link from Cape Town to Bukama in the Congo; two sections of river steamer and an isolated length of Congolese railway took the route to Stanleyville. In the north, the line was continuous from Cairo to Luxor and from Wadi Halfa to Kosti; these two sections were connected by 250 miles of Nile steamer, but the route to cross uncharted parts of the northern Congo and southern Sudan was not even surveyed by the time of publication, and the scheme was never completed. Weinthal produced this encyclopaedic work as "a belated but substantial tribute to Rhodes's idea. As an advisory board for this Brobdingnagian project, Weinthal recruited every possible survivor with a connection to Rhodes and to colonial Africa, every likely expert on the continent, and every amenable viceroy, sirdar, and colonial governor, from the general manager of the South African Railways to Sir Abe Bailey, Flinders Petrie, and Lord Lugard. The contents include essays on the history, society, and natural conditions of the African states to be traversed by the prospective railway; the mercantile potential of these states and the benefit of rail transport; the railway engineering feats undertaken in East Africa; touristic topics, such as ethnographic studies of tribespeople; big-game hunting; the "mysteries" of the Great Zimbabwe; the progress of colonial society in Cairo; and genial fantasies concerning the future of an "unlocked" continent that would be crossed by great silver airships stopping airily at new cities to disembark their passengers; merchants, mining engineers, and families of colonial administrators' (See Merrington A Staggered Orientalism: The Cape-to-Cairo Imaginary", in Poetics Today 22.2, 2001). -Added the rare SYNOPSIS of principal contents.
