The Life and Explorations of David Livingstone, Lld - Carefully Compiled from Reliable Sources
John G Murdoch, Holborn, London. 1870, First Edition. Hardcover, with dust jacket. 973 pages (complete). A venerable copy. The book has all the ponderous Victorian dignity and presence of a lectern bible : it has a thick stamped leathered boards. It is heavy, large. The boards have decorations and titling in gilt. The boards are much scuffed, worn and marked from age, handling and shelving. They are supremely confident, secure and sure. The page trims are gilded (worn and dusty). Within, the contents have all the consequences of age and ownership. The pages have foxing, age marks. There are some patches of residue on the frontispage. The pages are far from austere in their stature. They are certain, confident, dutiful, clean and clear, convivial, benevolent in attitude and production, proud, tidy. Please note that due to the weight of this gratifying book, should the book need be posted outside of South Africa, extra postage charges will be required. fk. Very Good/No Jacket.
