About this title


This collection of David Livingstone's personal papers, edited by Timothy Holmes, is from the Livingstone Museum in Zambia and features many previously unpublished letters. The first part deals with his period in Botswana, the second part focuses on the Zambezi expedition (1858-64), the third section covers to time of his visit to Britain in 1864-5, and the fourth part covers his last journey (1866-73). North America: Indiana U Press; Zambia: UNZA Press


The production of this manuscript came as a great surprise to me. I had thought that practically all of the letters of Livingstone had either been published in the various collections or cited by one or more of the many Livingstone biographers.... it has much of value to the students of his life. - Donald Simpson in AFRICAN AFFAIRS This volume, which has been very well edited, and annotated by Timothy Holmes, and beautifully produced by James Currey, prints about 140 of the two thousand or so letters which survive world-wide. - Hugh Macmillan in THE JOURNAL OF SOUTHEN AFRICAN STUDIES L'ensemble constitue un ouvrage de grande qualite dont la richesse et la consultation aisee seduiront tant l'amateur que le specialiste. - Patrick Videcoq in REVUE FRANCAISE D'HISTOIRE D'OUTRE-MERBR>
