About this Item

First edition, the Canadian issue from the same sheets as the English issue, printed in Great Britain and with title-pages noting the Musson Company. Bindings identical to the English First Edition. Portrait frontispiece, 16 illustrations from photogravure, and a color folding map at rear. Thick 8vo, publisher’s original navy blue cloth lettered and pictorially decorated in gilt on the spine and upper cover, t.e.g. xvii, 551, 1 page of ads. A fine copy, the text block clean and sound, the cloth is very bright and has no fading, only a small bit of mellowing to the tips and corners, the map neatly repaired at the center fold line. VERY SCARCE IMPRINT OF THIS IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION. STANLEY’S CLASSIC AUTOBIOGRAPHY. The first nine chapters are from Stanley's own pen, though he died before the autobiography was finished. His wife, Dorothy Stanley, finished the book from his journals and notebooks, and some personal letters he sent to her. "I should like to write out a rough draft, as it were, of my life. The polishing could take care of itself, or you could do it, when the time comes. Were I suddenly to be called away, how little, after all, the world would know of me!.But, granted that I know little of my real self, still, I am the best evidence for myself." - from a letter to his wife.
