"In 1867, Royal Navy lieutenant E. D. Young trekked to Africa
to find the great missionary-explorer David Livingstone who was
reported to be lost while searching for the origins of the Nile.
Henry Faulkner joined the expedition primarily to hunt. His
efforts collecting elephant, buffalo, and hippo in present day
Malawi and around Lake Nyasa are duly captured in this rare
narrative. [Czech. An Annotated Bibliography of African Big Game
