PERSONAL LIFE OF DAVID LIVINGSTONE...Chiefly from his Unpublished Journals and Correspondence in the Possession of his Family

(London: John Murray, 1880).

FIRST EDITION AND SCARCE IN THIS CONDITION. An early biography of the great missionary explorer. Livingstone’s work and adventures had been well documented and were already very well known. The author’s attempt here was to present the great explores character and personality along with providing insights into his personal life and history.
This book was published to be uniform with the popular edition of Livingstone’s own “Last Journals” but would be a fine accompaniment to not only that work but any of Livingstone’s own writings. Item #31827

First Edition. Engraved frontispiece portrait and folding map. 8vo, publisher's original dark brown cloth, decorated on the covers and spine in black, the spine panel lettered in gilt. xx, 505, 32 ads. Unusually well preserved and a very nice copy indeed, near as fine and unusually scarce in this condition.
