A handsome set of the great explorer's major works.

Probably the most famous African explorer of all time, Dr. Livingstone 's explorations led him to explore huge swathes of the African continent in three great expeditions discovering the Victoria Falls, Lakes Nyasa and Chilwa, and explored the Zambesi, Shire, and Ruyuma rivers. The geographical results of his journeys were of supreme importance and enabled great blank areas of the maps of Central Africa to be filled in. He was also a vehement opponent of the slave trade and fought vigourously against it.

finely bound uniform sets such as this are rare.
