How it works


Livingstone Letters 1843 to 1872. David Livingstone Correspondence in the Brenthurst library-Johannesburg. Brenthurst Second Series- Volume 1.

A legendary figure in the history of African exploration and missionary endeavour, David Livingstone has captured the imagination of many writers. Early literature on his life and achievements was generally excessively eulogistic and even now his name is recalled in many parts of Africa with affection.

Livingstone himself helps us in no small measure to do this. An indefatigable letter-writer and diarist, he has left us a vast amount of material to work on. This volume concentrates upon the Livingstone letters in The Brenthurst Library covering a period from his first years as a missionary in Africa in the early 1840's to the drama of his last journey's three decades later. The material represents only a fraction of Livingstone's writings, and other sources, both in The Brenthurst Library and outside it, have been explored to round out the picture. The text is enhanced by many contemporary illustrations, including several hitherto unpublished works.

Hardback with Dustcover--Frontispiece- 256 pages text supported with maps, illustrations and colour plates. Slight wear to dustcover. Very clean copy.
