Notes: Tooley/Lutz; This is 2nd state 1860, [the 1st state was published in the RGS vol XXIX 1859]. This map paper is very fragile, thin and torn, with repairs; The Royal Geographical Society expedition left Bagamoyo on the Tanzania coast, opposite Zanzibar, in June, 1857. Burton and John Hanning Speke went west to Kaze, now Tabora, then to the Malagarasi River and Lake Tanganyika. On their return, Speke travelled north to Lake Victoria and back, from Kaze.
