A sailor in the Sahara : the life and travels in Africa of Hugh Clapperton, Commander RN by Jamie Bruce-Lockhart( )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,004 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hugh Clapperton was one of the greatest 19th-century explorers of Africa. Seemingly forgotten for years, he is now brought to life in Jamie Bruce Lockhart's biography." "Clapperton was born in Annan in the Scottish borders in 1788 into a family typical of the Scottish Enlightenment and Borders region - gentry with strong traditions of serving in the armed forces, the medical profession and the Church. He was well educated but, scorning family tradition, he went to sea in 1802 as a junior deckhand in the merchant navy. Clapperton, like many Scots of his generation, saw service at sea as the path to fame and riches in the British Empire. However, his Royal Navy career began with disaster when he was impressed into service in 1806, but he escaped, joined a privateer, escaped again and finally returned to the Royal Navy. He served with distinction as a petty officer during the Napoleonic Wars in the Mediterranean and the East Indies, and on the Great Lakes of Canada in the war with the United States, where he gained his lieutenant's commission before being discharged on half-pay in 1817." "Boredom and thirst for adventure spurred him to exploration and great achievement in Africa. He participated in two government missions to map the Niger and the vast unexplored hinterland of the Guinea coast, and had command of the second - an important first diplomatic mission to a region of huge potential for Britain's burgeoning political and commercial imperial interests." "In this vivid and sympathetic biography, the reader witnesses Clapperton's adventures, hopes, fears, misfortune and his ultimately lonely fate."--Jacket
Difficult & dangerous roads : Hugh Clapperton's travels in Sahara and Fezzan (1822-25) by Hugh Clapperton( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hugh Clapperton was one of the first British explorers to enter the central Sahara, but his journals have never been published before. Recently discovered in South Africa, they show him to be one of the most sensitive and sympathetic travellers, his observations untainted by any sense of moral superiority. Hugh Clapperton has a sharp eye for detail, be it wind-stiller magicians, the effect of the evil eye or slave skeletons clustered around well heads. He hears musicians in jackal-headed masks and bagpipes in a wedding procession. He has a gift for friendship, feasting locals, offering himself to women and delighting in the company of both dignified tribal sheikhs and fearsome renegades like Mustapha the Red. With sixteen maps and contributions from three leading authorities, these journals will fascinate all who delight in travel and the Sahara

Hugh Clapperton into the Interior of Africa. Records of the Second Expediton 1825-1827. Sources for African History. Volume 2( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This definitive edition of Clapperton's second journey, is a compilation of the various diaries, remark books, letters, maps, and other documents that survived Clapperton's death in 1827. Hitherto, it has been necessary to rely on the original published version (Journal of a Second Expedition into the Interior of Africa), edited by John Barrow of the Admiralty and published by John Murray in 1829. The present volume differs from the 1829 edition by including material that was previously omitted and offering detailed annotation and commentary. The account reproduced in the new edition adheres as closely as possible to the original sources. A comprehensive introduction provides information on Clapperton's life, an account of previous European missions into the interior of West Africa, an assessment of Clapperton's contribution to geographical "discovery," details on Clapperton's methods of journal-keeping, and a discussion of the publication history of the 1829 edition. The introduction offers a commentary on the principal themes on which Clapperton's records shed original light - the coastal slave trade, abolitionist issues in the Sokoto Caliphate, the history of the states of Oyo, Nupe and Sokoto, and information on travel and trade in the interior of West Africa. The text itself is annotated, with observations on differences between the original sources and the published version of 1829. The volume includes six appendices of official documents relating to the expedition, its preparation and progress. These include the correspondence of various members of the expedition, letters in Arabic with a commentary, annotated itineraries of travel, and a note on contemporary medicines. Also included is a collection of maps from Clapperton's earlier mission in 1824-26 - the first known route-maps of the central Sudan, now in the collection of the Royal Geographical Society, London. The book is illustrated with previously unpublished sketches and maps from Clapperton's remark books and a dozen sketches drawn by one of the co-editors when tracing Clapperton's footsteps across Nigeria from Badagry to Sokoto in the early 1990s. There is an extensive bibliography. This comprehensive edition of Clapperton's last journey will appeal equally to scholars of pre-colonial Africa, specialists in Yoruba studies, and students of European travel and exploration
