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.

Desen tweden druck vermeerdert met de maniere van leven, gods-dienst, ceremonien, wetten, en krijghs-handel der Turcken, en hoe wreet sy met de slaven handelen. Beschreven door een Christen slaaf, die 13 jaar aldaer ghevangen heeft geweest. Amsterdam, Joost Hartgers, 1649.4to. Modern boards. With woodcut vignette on title-page and 6 half-page engravings. 47 lvs. First edition published the same year. - Jan Somer (ca. 1560-1640) a Dutchman from the province of Zeeland claims that he started his voyage in 1590 and returned in the autumn of 1592. There are several inconsistencies in the text, however, which make a large part of his itinery doubtful. It is conceivable that Jan Somer never travelled at all, but is one of the many plagiarists of his time. Somer was widely read, however, and had the reputation of being a famous traveller who wrote excellent accounts of his extensive journeys (Koster, To Hellen's noble land, 13). Including accounts of Alexandria, Cairo, the Red Sea area and Turkey. The treatise on the Turcks is a translation of B. Georgiewitz's De Turcarum moribus epitome, 1544. - A fine copy.Tiele 1014; Cat. NHSM I, p.255-256; Ibrahim-Hilmy II, p.244; Tobler p.86. [Boeknr.: 15953 ]
