Livingstone’s River


The head and tail of both dust jacket and book have been touched up; rear cover is rubbed slightly. A blank Ex Libris covers small damage on front fep.This is the first complete account of the third expedition by Livingstone, regarded at the time as a failure, ending tragically with several deaths including his own wife. Much glossed over, here we now have this story of daring and endurance, but also such tragedy. Much detail on the Slave Trade, Victoria Falls, Shire River, Tete, Portuguese in Africa, Ma Robert, Lake Nyasa, Malawi. Covered in archival plastic
