Lettered in gilt. lxxix, 552. A fine and very bright copy, virtually without fault. VERY SCARCE. The Centenary edition was published on the 100th anniversary of Livingstone’s birth. HOW I FOUND LIVINGSTON was Stanley's first book, and the book which secured his reputation. The quest to recover David Livingstone is one of the most famous travel adventures, and manhunts, in history. The oft quoted line "Dr. Livingstone I presume" is from this journey and that scene is recreated in the engraved plate on page 331 of this book. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
