The Life and Explorations of David Livingstone, LL.D. The African Traveller and Missionary. Carefully Compiled From Reliable Sources

The book details the life & explorations of Livingstone and has a number of beautiful coloured plates illustrating his tale. Whilst this period of exploration by white Europeans may be viewed by contemporary readers through a post-imperial lens, at the time of publishing, this book portrayed Livingstone as a hero.

Embossed crest to rear board. All page edges gilt.

Book Dimensions: 27.5 x 21.5 x 4cm & Number of Pages: 632.
A magnificent publication weighing 1.8 kilograms.

A prize plate inside front cover. Light tanning and foxing to endpapers and some pages. The book contains 12 leaves of plate; all in very good condition and mostly clean aside from the odd handling mark to the margin. All pages are tightly held at the gutter and edged in gilt.

  • Book arrived quickly and well packaged BUT fold-out coloured map is missing despite this being in the 'item description'. I feel seller has been misleading by not saying this and am annoyed!

    user-aaf9ff0 May 28, 2019

    Response by seller
    I can't understand why you are annoyed?
    I really have no idea about any fold-out map within the books. I have only mentioned in the 'item description' (coloured map, showing the region of his labours) and this map is existed in the book. This is an excellent item, and no need for me to mislead any buyer.

    Thanks
  • Bonsoir
    Excellent envoi, de beaux ouvrages.
    Je suis ravi.
    Merci beaucoup
    Thomas
