Waller, Horace
The Last Journals of David Livingstone in Central Africa from 1865 to his Death Continued by a Narrative of his Last Moments and Sufferings Obtained from his Faithful Servants Chuma and Susi [2 volumes]
London: John Murray, 1874 [First edition]

2 Volumes 8vo (22,5x15 cm); xvi 360 and vii 346 pages. Illustrated with portrait, 2 maps including large folding map at rear pocket, full page and text illustrations, complete. Bound in contemporary half red morroco, marbled sides.

Condition very good. A clean copy, some light rubbing and pencil marks.

The journals include "a series of travels and scientific geographical records of the most extraordinary character of seven years continuous work and new discovery”. Livingstone died on April 1873, his faithful servants Susi Chumi and Jacob Wainwright preserved his body and papers and brought them safely to England. [Mendelssohn] Livingstone's last diary covers the last eight years of his life, including the famous incident with Stanley. The addition of the narratives of Chuma and Susi, who carried Livingstone's body over a thousand miles to the coast so that it could be returned to Britian for burial, sparked a significant revival in Livingstone's reputation, which had suffered due to the perceived failure of several of his expeditions. These diaries rightly characterise Livingstone as deeply determined, and his entire focus was on bringing the institution of slavery to an end in Africa.
