Book Description Harper & Brothers, NY, 1858. First edition. 8vo, pp. 732 + adv. Bound in leather backed boards, rubbed along the hinges, bookplate, end papers toned, hinge starting, illustrated with plates and a map (well worn at the folds). Just a good copy. Mendelssohn III 136. cfGarrison & Morton 5269. cfGay 3034. cfPrinting and the Mind of Man 341. cfAbbey, Travel, 347. cfHosken p. 126 (1st Issue). Livingstone describes his missionary activities and travels in South Africa from 1841 to 1853 and his first major expedition, the Trans-Africa journey of 1853-56. On this expedition he travelled from Linyanti to Loanda and from Linyanti to Quilimane. While exploring the Zambesi River, he discovered the famous Victoria Falls in November 1855. "The results in geography and in natural science in all its departments were abundant and accurate; his observations necessitated a reconstruction of the map of Central Africa. When Livingstone began his work in Africa the map was virtually blank from Kuruman to Timbuktu, and nothing but envy or ignorance can throw any doubt on the originality of his discoveries." (Encyc. Britan., 11th Edn.) Livingstone also here gives an accurate account of the tsetse fly and of the disease produced in cattle following its bite. "Delightful reading." (DNB) Mendelssohn III 136. cfGarrison & Morton 5269. cfGay 3034. cfPrinting and the Mind of Man 341. cfAbbey, Travel, 347. cfHosken p. 126 (1st Issue). Bookseller Inventory # 55932
