SIR RODERICK IMPEY MURCHISON,
President Royal Geographical Society, F.R.S., V.P.G.S.,
Corr. Inst. of France, and Member of the Academies of St. Petersburg,
Berlin, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Brussels, Etc.,
is affectionately offered as a Token of Gratitude for the kind interest
he has always taken in the Author’s pursuits and welfare;
and to express admiration of his eminent scientific attainments,
nowhere more strongly evidenced than by the striking hypothesis
respecting the physical conformation of the African continent,
promulgated in his Presidential Address to the Royal Geographic Society
in 1852, and verified three years afterward by the Author of these Travels.
London, Oct., 1857.
