My Journey in Uganda in the Years 1911-12.

[Prague]: Privately printed, c. 1912. Original photographic album. Oblong quarto. Hand colored map with contemporary regional names. 128 hand-captioned sepia toned gelatin silver prints chronicling an expedition through Kenya and Uganda led by Richard Storch in the early 1900s. Storch was a Czech professional hunter and an amateur photographer, although these photographs cannot be directly attributed to him. Most of the images in the album portray the various tribal peoples encountered en route, with great attention to clothing, jewelry, hair style, and body ornamentation. The travelers and their porters are also documented, with two appalling images of porters chained together to prevent them from quitting the expedition. Covers lightly soiled, but lovely overall in string-tied burlap boards.
