Excerpt from William Cotton Oswell, Hunter and Explorer, Vol. 1 of 2: The Story of His Life; With Certain Correspondence and Extracts From the Private Journal of David Livingstone, Hitherto Unpublished

To Messrs. Longman, too, I am particularly indebted for their readily-accorded permission to make use of the illustrations to my father's article on 'big Game.' 'they are,' he writes, by the best artist of wild animal life I have ever known, Joseph Wolf. After describing the scene, I stood by him as he drew, occasionally offering a suggestion or venturing on two or three scrawling lines of my own; and the wonderful talent of the man produced pictures so like the reality in all essential points that I marvel still at his power.'

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from William Cotton Oswell, Hunter and Explorer, Vol. 1 of 2: The Story of His Life; With Certain Correspondence and Extracts From the Private Journal of David Livingstone, Hitherto Unpublished Immediately after my fathers death I resolved to publish a memoir of him, and with this object collected information from numerous sources, and collated letters, including many hundreds written to myself - a large proportion of them during nine or ten years of my life in London. These alone would have made a volume of deep interest to anyone who knew and loved him, containing as they did his matured views, very freely expressed, of men and things, and touching on an extraordinary variety of subjects. The manuscript was well advanced when it, and the materials upon which it was founded, were totally destroyed by fire. At first it appeared impossible to recommence the task, but the unexpected discovery a year later of some thousands of old letters and papers - the fruits mainly of the executorships of Mrs. Oswell and her brother, Benjamin Cotton - and the kind interest and encouragement of friends, induced me to make a fresh attempt. More especially I was influenced by one for whose opinion, character, and judgment, my father, in common with everyone who knows him, had the highest respect and admiration - I refer to General Fred Cotton. The life-history, he wrote, of my noble friend - one of the most really noble of men - ought to be recorded from first to last.
