The Wade Burgess Collections

I love to read books related to southern Africa and Nile exploration

I love to collect first editions and illustrated editions of books that I read

This website will showcase the book collections that I have spent over two decades building

I also hope to inform other collectors

You will enjoy my website the most if you browse it using a regular computer and monitor, or large tablet

Click any portrait below to see photos of excellent-condition copies of each author's books

Many images on this website are of books in my personal collections
