(Cambridge: Deighton, Bell, and Co., 1860).

SCARCE. FEW COPIES ARE EVER ENCOUNTERED IN COMMERCE. The book is comprised predominantly of the two main lectures which take up the great bulk of the text. There is a fine Life of Dr. Livingstone affixed and very useful prefatory material. The appendices are very extensive and include good discussions of both the historical and scientific aspects of Livingstone's labours, explorations and discoveries. Additional work is presented on the geography, meteorology, botany, zoology, natural science and geology of areas covered during the trips made. As well, there are significant sections on the various tribes and additional ethnological studies and notes from Livingstone's works along with the religious and missionary efforts he extended. A good number of letters written by Livingstone are also reproduced. Item #30859

Second Edition, the best of the editions as it contains significantly more information than the first. Illustrated with an engraved portrait of Dr. Livingstone and two folding maps. 8vo, bound in later half black morocco over olive green morocco covered boards, the spine lettered in gilt. viii, 380, 4 ads. pp. The binding in fine condition and essentially pristine, internally also a very good copy only slightly mellowed by time, the maps and portrait in nice condition, a bit of wear to the folds of the first map and some antique support at three fold points.
