Overview

This vintage book contains a biographical account of the author’s life and missionary travels in and around South Africa. First published in 1868, this volume offers a fascinating insight into South Africa in the late nineteenth century, and is highly recommended for those with an interest in historical literature of this ilk. Contents include: “Personal Sketch”, “Highland Ancestors”, “Family Traditions”, “Grandfather Removes to the Lowlands”, “Parents”, “Early Labors and Efforts”, “Evening School”, “Love of Reading”, “Religious Impressions”, “Medical Education”, “Medical Diploma”, “Theological Studies”, etcetera. 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.

This was a very interesting book. I really enjoyed reading it. It is a nice version too, without errors. The review that states it's a bad copy must be referring to another version, not this one. The one I have has a picture of Livingstone on it, with black lettering at the bottom.
