Oswell, WC
William Cotton Oswell Hunter and Explorer
London: Heinemann, 1900. First. Hardcover. VG+. 2 volumes: 289 & 267 pp, ill. Maps incl. one colored. Intro by F Galton. Oswell will always be remembered as the man sent not once, but twice, to guide David Livingstone. They traveled together and it was Oswell's knowledge of the game country that helped the beleaguered Livingstone through his trips. In his own book, Missionary Travels, Livingstone heaps high praise on Oswell. Although many books mention Oswell, this is the only one about his life. VG+ set in original cloth- nicer than most sets we've seen. Former owner's bookplate inside front covers. A presentation to Fell from his mother in remembrance of their dear friend, Mr William Cotton Oswell.
