1858 1ed David Livingstone Missionary Travels Illustrated AFRICA MAPS Voyages



“If you have men who will only come if they know there is a good road, I don't want them. I want men who will come if there is no road at all.”

― David Livingstone



A rare first American edition of David Livingstone’s “Missionary Travels.” In this book Livingstone describes his travel and work as a missionary to the indigenous people in Central and South Africa. Through the mid-19th-century, South Africa was complete unknown to Europeans, so Livingstone’s mission brought light to more than just spreading the gospel. The work deals with customs, languages, animal and plant biology, geology, topography, and mineralogy.

“The geographical results of his journeys were of supreme importance and made it possible to fill in great stretches of the maps of Central Africa which hitherto had been blank” (Printing and Mind of Man 341).



Livingstone discovered the Zambesi River and Victoria Falls (which he named), parts of Angola, and Mozambique, and met with and observed the Hottentot. He was also able to discover some of the most devastating instances of slave trade, which propelled his abolitionist ideals.
