The Last Journals of David Livingstone in Central Africa from Eighteen Hundred and Sixty Five to his Death

A feast was made by the friends of the departed, and portions sent to all who had attended the funeral: I got a good share. 18th October, 1867.—The last we hear of Nsama is that he will not interfere with Chikongo.

The Last Journals of David Livingstone  in Central Africa  from Eighteen Hundred and Sixty Five to his Death

This book (first published in 1874) contains extracts from last journals written by David Livingstone, together with an account of his last moments and sufferings. This fantastic volume is recommended for those with an interest in the life and work of the famous explorer, and is not to be missed by collectors of antiquarian literature of this ilk. Horace Waller (1833–1896) was an English activist and missionary famous for being a close friend of David Livingstone and a prolific writer on the subject of Africa. David Livingstone (1813 - 1873), was a Scottish Congregationalist pioneer medical missionary with the London Missionary Society, as well as a famed explorer. Perhaps one of the most popular national heroes of the late-nineteenth century in Victorian Britain, Livingstone had a mythic status, which operated on a number of interconnected levels: Protestant missionary martyr, working-class "rags to riches" inspirational story, scientific investigator and explorer, imperial reformer, anti-slavery crusader, and advocate of commercial empire. Many vintage texts such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now, in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
