Tippoo Tibs Grand Canoes on the Congo River, 1888 Featured Print

Tippoo Tibs Grand Canoes on the Congo River, 1888

Engraving showing Tippoo Tib's grand canoes travelling down the Congo River during Sir Henry Morton Stanley's Emin Pasha Relief Expedition, 1888. Emin Pasha (1840-1892), the German doctor, explorer, linguist and Governor of the Egyptian Equatorial Province had retreated to Wadelai, near Lake Albert, with 10, 000 followers during the Mahdi Rising. Cut off from all communication Emin Pasha was considered lost, so the British government sent out a rescue party led by H.M. Stanley (1841-1904). Stanley enlisted the aid of the Tibboo Tib, an Arab-African warrior, adventurer and slaver, as he was one of the most powerful men in the Congo region at that time. Date: 1889

A Member of H.M. Stanleys expedition threatening a baggage Featured Print

A Member of H.M. Stanleys expedition threatening a baggage

Engraving showing a member of Sir Henry Morton Stanley's expedition to find Dr. David Livingstone threatening a baggage porter, Central Africa, 1871. The original caption to this image read: Look out! You drop that box - I'll shoot you. The figure with the gun is most likely Stanley himself, although it may be one of his deputies, Shaw or Farquhar. In October 1869, Stanley (1841-1904) was sent by James Gordon Bennett (owner of the New York Herald) to find Dr. David Livingstone, who had been exploring central Africa for several years without passing any communication to Europe. In 1871 Stanley found Livingstone at Ujiji, Tanganika, and with it also, fame and some fortune. Stanley led several further expeditions to Africa, the last of these in 1886 to find and relieve Emin Pasha. In 1892 he took British citizenship and was Unionist MP for Lambeth between 1895 and 1900

Stanley and Tippoo Tib leaving Matadi, 1887

Engraving showing Sir Henry Morton Stanley (1841-1904) (centre right on horse) and Tippoo Tib (1837-1905) (right of Stanley, with sword) leaving Matadi, on the Congo river, 1887. On the left of the image can be seen Stanley's porters carrying general baggage as well as the various parts of a sectional boat. Stanley was then undertaking an expedition to find and, if needs be, rescue the Emin Pasha, the Governor of the Egyptian Equatorial Province. Stanley succeeded in this enterprise, early in 1888. Tippoo Tib (1837-1905), whose real name was Hamid ibn Mohammed, was an African-Arab adventurer and warrior, who controlled a large section of Central Africa. His aid to Stanley and other European explorers was invaluable in their exploration and exploitation of the region
