Stanley, Henry M. (Henry Morton), 1841-1904. Untitled holograph manuscript about Emin Pasha, written in a large bold hand

Collection Creator:

Extent:

Item M184g
Type:
Archival materials
pages
Date:
1887 - 1904
Scope and Contents note:
Commences "I began this lecture by describing the opinions held of Emin by the British Press ..." Thence follows Stanley's assessment of the man based on his experiences on the Expedition.
General note:
M184g is the accession number in the Russell E. Train inventory list of the Joseph F. Cullman 3rd Library of Natural History. Written entirely in Stanley's hand. These pages could have been prepared to be used in conjunction with M184F. Part of a collection of one manuscript and eleven privately printed lectures and addresses by Stanley, some with annotations, together with other material all formerly in the possession of Lady Dorothy Stanley. Biographical note (applying to all items in M184): Although "never published" it would seem that Stanley had his lectures printed for three reasons, ease of delivery, to register copyright (some of the above are "Entered at Stationers' Hall"), and to enable him to present a copy to hosts. However, the number that were printed must have been very small and they are excessively rare. There are ten printed lectures listed in the British Library Catalogue but only four of those appear to correspond to the above group (M184d, M184f, M184h, & M184l). No copies of any of the items in this group (M184a-l) are listed in the library catalogue of the Royal Geographical Society. These lectures are referred to by Lady Stanley in the Autobiography (p. ix), "The material includes, next, a number of lectures, upon his various explorations these he prepared with great care, but were never published. They were written after he had published the books covering the same travels and in the lectures we have the story told in a more condensed and colloquial way. "
Collection Rights:
The collection is housed in the Joseph F. Cullman 3rd Library of Natural History, which is open to researchers Monday through Friday in the afternoons, from 1:30 to 5:00 p.m.; morning visits are by appointment only. Please call (202) 633-1184 or email AskaLibrarian@si.edu for an appointment.
