The Last Journals of David Livingstone in Central Africa, from 1865 to his Death


One of the most renowned nineteenth-century British explorers of Africa, David Livingstone (1813-73) was a medical missionary who received the Royal Geographical Society gold medal in 1855. His fame was established by his 1853-6 coast-to-coast exploration of the African interior, and by the best-selling Missionary Travels and Researches in South Africa, published upon his return to England in 1857 (also reissued in this series). Livingstone's last expedition in search of 'the true source of the Nile', undertaken in 1866, forms the core of this two-volume travel diary, published posthumously in 1874. Volume 2 describes the last two years of his life, when, after his meeting with the journalist Henry Morton Stanley in 1871, Livingstone insisted on staying in Africa despite his poor health. It includes details about his death and the journey to bring his body back to the British authorities, reported by Livingstone's attendants Chuma and Susi.
