The Brooke-Hitching copy

First edition, the Brooke-Hitching copy, with his pencilled initials to the initial blank of each volume.

Dr Robert William Felkin (1853-1926) was a medical missionary and explorer, an early anthropologist, with an interest in ethno-medicine and tropical diseases, and a prolific author on Uganda and Central Africa.
