How I Found Livingstone. Travels, Adventures, and Discoveries in Central Africa; Including Four Months Residence with Dr. Livingstone

Stanley, Henry M.

London: Sampson Low, Marston, Low, and Searle, 1872. Hardcover. Very Good. Hardcover. Second English Edition. AN EXCEPTIONAL ASSOCIATION COPY. Inscribed at the time of publication on a slip of paper affixed to front pastedown, "To my dear friend John H. Goodenow Esq U.S. Consul to Constantinople from Henry M. Stanley The Author London Nov 5 1872." Henry Morton Stanley (1841-1904), the explorer and journalist, was commissioned by his employer, the New York Herald to mount an expedition to Africa to find the missing Scottish missionary David Livingstone. Stanley found Livingstone in November 1871, where he famously said (or perhaps not),"Dr. Livingstone, I presume." The trip brought Stanley fame and fortune. His first account of the expedition was published in July 1872. The recipient, John Goodenow (1833-1906) was from a prominent legal and political family in Maine. In 1864 he was appointed as consul general in Constantinople and became secretary of the legation in Turkey in 1873. It was in his capacity as a senior diplomat in the Ottoman Empire that brought him in contact with Stanley. Stanley, traveling with two other men, made plans to travel through Turkey to Asia and China. Two weeks into their journey they found themselves embroiled in a violent encounter with local Turks. Stanley was eventually able to obtain the assistance of Goodenow, who secured compensation for their treatment. Bound in original brown cloth with embossed design on spine and front cover, with gilt illustration of two men meeting with the caption "D,. Livingstone I presume." Boards are chipped, bumped and spine has chip to top left edge. Rear cover watermarked, but binding is nicer than it sounds. Hinges are weak but text block is tight. The end papers are chipped and the rear hinge has pulled open, and the front folding map is detached from text block except for part that is still attached but torn away from the rest of the map.Later ownership signature on half-title. Frontispiece is a mounted photograph of Stanley. Full and partial page illustrations throughout. Four folding maps. Overall in very good condition. 736 pages including index plus 8 page publisher's catalog. TRAV/091213.
