Missionary Travels and Researches in South Africa; including a sketch of sixteen years’ residence in the interior of Africa

Livingstone, David

Colored lithographed folding frontispiece of Victoria Falls, engraved portrait, 23 wood-engraved or lithographed plates, 2 folding maps. Contemporary red half calf and marbled boards. Rebacked preserving spine. Foxed. Cloth case FIRST EDITION. Presentation copy inscribed by the author: "Mrs Clare with the kindest regards of David Livingstone." Livingstone lived many years in South Africa and made three great expeditions, the first described in this book 1853-56, and the others in 1858-64 and 1865-73. "David Livingstone, perhaps the greatest of the African explorers … discovered the Zambesi River at Secheke and followed it northwards, eventually reaching the west coast of Africa at Luanda, Angola, and the east coast at Quelimane, Mozambique. In 1855 he discovered the great falls of Zambesi and named them the Victoria Falls" (PMM). Livingstone's accomplishments in African exploration and geography are almost unequaled. He covered about a third of the Continent from the Cape to the Equator and from the Atlantic to the Indian Ocean. This volume describes Livingstone's first and greatest expedition (1853-56) in which, among many other things, he discovered the great falls of the Zambesi and named them Victoria Falls. Europeans had never before seen much of the vast territory that Livingstone covered. "The geographical results of his journeys were of supreme importance, and made it possible to fill in great stretches of the maps of Central Africa which hitherto had been blank" (PMM). A detailed account of his years of African exploration, during which he "investigated the geology, botany, and natural history of the country he traversed," Livingstone's Missionary Travels "thoroughly reflects the man and is delightful reading" (DNB). Provenance the celebrated collection of Haskell Norman, with his bookplate, Christie's New York, 29 October 1998, lot 1173. Norman 1377. Exhibited: this very copy was exhibited at the original 1963 Printing and the Mind of Man exhibition (IPEX). Printing and the Mind of Man 341.

LIVINGSTONE, David.

London: John Murray,, 1857. including a Sketch of Sixteen Years' Residence in the Interior of Africa, and a Journey from the Cape of Good Hope to Loanda on the West Coast; thence across the Continent, down the River Zambezi, to the Eastern Ocean. Octavo. Original reddish-brown sand-grain cloth, title gilt to the spine, blind panels to spine and boards, brown coated endpapers, binder's ticket (Edmonds & Remnants) to rear pastedown. Folding frontispiece, engraved portrait of Livingstone with tissue-guard, 22 further plates, folding geological cross section, 2 folding maps, of which one in end-pocket, wood-engravings to the text. With 8 pages of publisher's advertisements dated 1 November 1857 to rear. Ownership inscription, "Lizzie Henderson, Jany 1906" to front free endpaper. Spine gently rolled, slightly bumped at foot, front inner hinge cracked but firm, light spotting to edges, frontispiece foxed and offset, quire 2E starting. A very good copy. First edition, Bradlow's variant 2: the frontispiece and plates facing pages 66 and 225 are all tinted lithographs by T. Picken, and the extra leaf after page 8 is absent. Frank R. Thorold called this the first issue, and Gaston Renard believed it to be the second, but as many as 11 variants of the first edition are known and a reliable order of precedence has never been established: it is now accepted that "the only thing that can be said with certainty is that the issue with the extra leaf numbered 8* and 8+ is not the first issue" (Bradlow). The extra leaf contains information on Moffat's mission at Kuruman and on Livingstone's marriage and the upbringing of his children, and Bradlow could only speculate as to the reasons for the interpolation: "Why did Livingstone decide to have the extra leaf after page 8 inserted? Did he feel that he had neglected his wife by not mentioning her in this way in the first place? All these questions and a host of others will occur to trained bibliographers and it may well be, that, in the future, some indefatigable researcher will find the answers." Missionary Travels is one of the emblematic accounts of African exploration in the 19th century and the foundation of the Livingstone legend. It describes the first of his three major expeditions, "in which he followed the Zambezi, discovering Victoria Falls in the process, as well as the Shire and Ruyuma rivers, ranging from Angola in the west to Mozambique in the east … During these years he explored vast regions of central Africa, many of which had never been seen by white men before" (PMM). Provenance: from the noted travel collection of Humphrey Winterton, with his monogram book-label to the front pastedown.

LIVINGSTONE, David.

London: John Murray,, 1857. including a Sketch of Sixteen Years' Residence in the Interior of Africa, and a Journey from the Cape of Good Hope to Loanda on the West Coast; thence across the Continent, down the River Zambezi, to the Eastern Ocean. Octavo (218 x 140 mm). Bound in recent brown morocco, titles and decoration to spine gilt, boards ruled gilt, marbled endpapers, edges gilt. Folding frontispiece and 22 other plates, illustrations to the text, 3 folding maps, one of them in an end-pocket. Stub of frontispiece torn, with tape repair, tissue repair to fore edge of frontispiece and plate 5, occasional minor spotting to contents. An excellent copy, attractively bound. First edition. The book covers the first of Livingstone's three major expeditions "in which he followed the Zambezi, discovering Victoria Falls in the process, as well as the Shire and Ruyuma rivers, ranging from Angola in the west to Mozambique in the east... During these years he explored vast regions of central Africa, many of which had never been seen by white men before" (PMM). This copy conforms to Bradlow's Variant No. 3: frontispiece, plate 8 and 17 wood-cuts by Whymper, with an extra leaf after p. 8; the ads in this copy are dated November 1, 1857. Bradlaw refrains from citing this as the "third issue", since the precise relationship of the variants unknown - indeed, Bradlaw only retains Gaston Renard's order of issue "not because of a belief in its correctness but merely for convenience", and notes that "the only thing that can be said with certainty is that the issue with the extra leaf numbered 8* and 8+ is not the first issue". The extra leaf following p. 8 covers Livingstone's account of his married life and the upbringing of his children. As to why the extra leaf was inserted, Bradlow remains baffled: "Why did Livingstone decide to have the extra leaf after page 8 inserted? Did he feel that he had neglected his wife by not mentioning her in this way in the first place? All these questions and a host of others will occur to trained bibliographers and it may well be, that, in the future, some indefatigable researcher will find the answers."

London: John Murray, 1857. A very good copy in original brown cloth.. Large octavo, engraved portrait and 23 plates (including folding frontispiece view), two folding maps by Arrowsmith (one in pocket at rear), numerous wood engraved illustrations through the text; original brown cloth. The most famous account of African exploration, recording three years spent in the wilderness between 1853-1856. 'Livingstone, one of the great characters of the nineteenth century, embodying all the virtues of the Victorian age, is often remembered more for his qualities as a man than for his achievements as an explorer. Born with no social advantages, it was his courage and boldness of conception, his deep religious feelings and his great powers of endurance that carried him through the trials and hardships of a dedicated life and eventually gained him the honour of burial in Westminster Abbey' (Printing and the Mind of Man, 341).This is a later issue of the first edition, well preserved in the original publisher's cloth with chalked endpapers and folding Arrowsmith map in a sleeve at the rear.

With folding wood-engraved frontispiece depicting the Victoria Falls by Whymper, engraved portrait (margins foxed), a folding cross section, 2 folding maps and 42 wood-engraved plates and illustrations. X,687pp.First edition, first issue. - An account of Livingstone's first expedition (1853-1856). With the help of the Makololos, a South African tribe, Livingstone planned to explore the whole of southern Africa as far as Angola. The missionary had become an important explorer. As the first European, he traveled on the Zambezi to Kazembe in a pirogue, a fast water vessel made from a tree trunk. In order to escape from the slave traders of Portuguese Africa, Livingstone traveled via Cassange and Bihé to Luanda, a Portuguese port and the capital of Angola, where he arrived completely exhausted on 31 May, 1854. As soon as he had recovered from his fever, he undertook a trek to Lake Dilolo, discovered the source of the Kasai, a left tributary of the Congo, and arrived in Linyanti, the capital of the Makololos. In the course of the major Zambezi expedition that followed he discovered the Victoria Falls, the falls of the middle Zambezi, in 1855 (Waldmann, Ecyclopedia of world explorers, p.226). 'Livingstone's services to African geography. are almost unequalled. he explored vast regions of central Africa, many of which had never been seen by white men before' (Printing and the Mind of Man 341). - Some foxing as usual , first fly-leaf missing, otherwise fine.Mendelssohn I, p.908-10; SAB III, p.136; Gordon-Brown p. 190-191; Hess & Coger 3067.

Missionary Travels and Researches in South Africa

David Livingstone

London - John Murray, 1857 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition.. A first edition of one of the most famous exploration books in history, by the medical missionary and explorer, David Livingstone. Secondimpression with eight pages of the original publishers' advertisements dated November 1st 1857. Complete with twenty-seven plates,four of which are folding, and two maps- one that is tucked into a compartment to the rear pastedown. Perhaps one of the most popular national heroes of the late 19th century in Victorian Britain, Livingstone had a mythic status, which operated on a number of interconnected levels: that of Protestant missionary martyr, that of working-class rags to riches inspirational story, that of scientific investigator and explorer, that of imperial reformer, anti-slavery crusader, and advocate of commercial empire. The title, Missionary Travels and Researches in South Africa, evokes earlier accounts of southern Africa, notably by Philip and Moffat, but Livingstone's book stands out from these by reason of its intellectual breadth. . . When he came to write his book, he enriched a stirring narrative, told in conversational style, with insights acquired by informed eyes and ears, as well as with shafts of caustic humour -DNB. Condition: Rebacked in a cloth binding with gilt lettering to the spine. Externally, light rubbing to extremities and small marks to the front board. Internally, firmly bound and bright with instances of light spotting throughout. Copperplate ink signature to the title page. Overall: VERY GOOD..

Missionary Travels And Researches In South Africa; Including A Sketch Of Sixteen Years’ Residence In The Interior Of Africa, And A Journey From The Cape Of Good Hope To Loanda On The West Coast…

LIVINGSTONE, David [1813-1873]

New York: Harper & Brothers, Publishers, 1858. First American Edition of one of the most important nineteenth century accounts of African exploration. 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). 8vo. pp. xxiv, 732, [4]ads. 1 steel-engraved portrait of Livingstone, 2 folding maps by Arrowsmith, 1 double-page wood engraving, 1 folding diagram & numerous wood-engraved text illus.

Missionary travels and researches in South Africa:

Livingstone, David.

New York: Harper & Brothers, 1858. Fair/David Livingstone (1813-73) undertook three great journeys through Africa, exploring vast regions unknown to Europeans.

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."

MISSIONARY TRAVELS AND RESEARCHES IN SOUTH AFRICA

Livingstone David

New York: Harper and Brothers, 1858. First American edition, large paper 8vo edition. Engraved portrait and double-page frontispiece, 1 folding map, folding diagram and 42 black and white illustrations, many full page. Large 8vo, the largest of the publisher's printings of the book, publisher's original dark-brown cloth lettered in gilt on spine. xxiv, 732, 4 ads pp. A good honest copy of this classic, the American issue is far more elusive than the English first and is rarely in collectible condition. This copy with the textblock firm and solid and very clean, one folding map in facsimile, the other with a tear along the fold line but complete and attached, the cloth with some light typical wear and some age mellowing. RARE FIRST AMERICAN EDITION IN UNUSUALLY NICE CONDITION, of the account of Livingstone’s first great expedition (1853-56), during which he explored the Zambesi and its Victoria Falls. One of the most important of all 19th century books on African exploration, this copy in exceptionally nice condition. "...David Livingstone, the Scottish medical missionary, is known to history as the greatest explorer of his age and a dedicated humanitarian who devoted his life to the eradication of the African slave trade. He was a national hero to his contemporaries and time has confirmed his reputation as one of the greatest, if not the greatest, of the eminent Victorians, both in his achievement and in his influence." - George Martelli This first American edition is a bit taller then its English counterpart. It retains all of the illustrations, though arranged a bit differently.
