How it works


  • "New and cheaper edition, thoroughly revised throughout, with a Memoir of Dr Livingstone"

This is a very good complete copy of this edition in the original green cloth binding - unrubbed and tightly bound - with the black palm tree scene and black-and-gilt Stanley meets Livingstone illustration to the upper board and gilt lettering to the spine still bright; plain endpapers; lxxix/552 pp of text, glossary and index; frontispiece and 17 other illustrations - including 4 inserted plates - plus the folding map at the back, which is unmarked and has no tears or other damage

  • Published in the same year as the premium edition (1874), this is one of the first copies of the revised cheaper edition, which remained in print for a further 13 years; and the type remains clear and sharp, which was not the case with the later printings
