The Art of African Exploration
Title: The Art of African Exploration
Creator: Smithsonian Institution Libraries <Washington, Wash.>

Abstract: Africa became a magnet for adventurers and scientists, opportunists and humanitarians. By the late 1800s, much of Africa had been mapped, giving European nations a foothold for imperialism, while uncovering a world largely unknown to science. The compelling images that emerged from this time tell the story of Africa as it was first seen by Western eyes, and the impact it had on a fascinated public. [Information of the supplier]
