No Mercy. A Journey to the Heart of the Congo
NY, Knopf, 1997. The uncorrected proof copy. A travel account by the peerless British writer, author of Into the Heart of Borneo and In Trouble Again, among others. O'Hanlon is perhaps the closest direct descendant of the eccentric British travel writers of the 19th century, whose explorations helped create a short-lived empire but also, almost in spite of themselves, enormously enriched the available pool of knowledge about the multitudinous tribal cultures and diverse ethnicities of the world. Long crease to front cover; near fine in wrappers. [#015355] $30
