YOUNG, Donald, ed., with a biographical commentary by.

The Search for the Source of the Nile. With a preface by Quentin Keynes.

Correspondence between Captain Richard Burton, Captain John Speke and others, from Burton’s unpublished East African Letter Book; together with other related letters and papers in the collection of Quentin Keynes, now printed for the first time.  The letters selected for this collection, spanning the years 1854 to 1864, vividly present the unfolding drama of the search for the source of the Nile, one of the most dramatic and important events in nineteenth-century geography. Nineteen letters have been transcribed directly from Burton’s Letter Book, and the others were collected individually by Quentin Keynes from far-flung corners of the world.

NAUNTON, Robert, Sir.

Fragmenta Regalia. Observations of the late Queene Elizabeth, Hir Times and Fauorites. Edited by Professor Roy E. Schreiber.

A classic of memoir literature, Sir Robert Naunton’s Fragmenta Regalia was written c. 1634, circulated in manuscript, and first published in 1641, since when it has seldom been out of print. This edition presents the authentic text for the first time, from the very manuscript that Sir Robert had made for Charles I, to whom it was actually addressed, and includes the substantial, hitherto unpublished commentary which Naunton intended for the King’s eyes alone. The text is accompanied by textual and biographical notes on all the dramatis personae by Roy E. Schreiber, Professor of History at Indiana University. The second volume comprises a facsimile reproduction of the manuscript.
