Missionary travels and researches in South Africa : including a sketch of sixteen years' residence in the interior of Africa, and a journey from the Cape of Good Hope to Loanda on the west coast; thence across the continent, down the River Zambesi, to the eastern ocean by David Livingstone( )

108 editions published between 1828 and 2015 in English and held by 2,085 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. David Livingstone had lived in Africa for a number of years when he undertook the journey he writes about in this book. It is a remarkable story, told without self-aggrandizement. His mission was to stop the trade in human slaves. Dr. Livingstone walked over 4,000 miles, from Cape Town, South Africa through the Kalahari Desert and west to the coastal town of Loanda. He then turned east, followed the Zambesi River, and ended his travels in Mozambique. Only members of the Makololo tribe accompanied him
Narrative of an expedition to the Zambesi and its tributaries : and of the discovery of the Lakes Shirwa and Nyassa, 1858-1864 by David Livingstone( Book )

48 editions published between 1865 and 2011 in English and French and held by 849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The success of the Victorian explorer and missionary David Livingstone's first book, Missionary Travels (1857), led to his receiving government funding in 1858 for an expedition up the Zambezi River. The trip was expected to last two years, and was intended to further commercial and scientific as well as missionary aims. However, owing to internal disagreements, illness (including the death of Livingstone's wife), drought and tribal warfare, the explorers' mission took six and a half years and achieved little apart from collecting plant and geological specimens. The upper reaches of the Zambesi proved unnavigable owing to rapids and waterfalls, and the expedition was recalled. This account, published in 1865 by Livingstone (1813{u2013}1873) and his younger brother Charles, who had accompanied him, was in part an attempt to excuse the problems which had beset the expedition, and restore Livingstone's reputation in order to gain backing for further ventures

Two lectures given by the medical missionary and explorer David Livingstone after his return to England from his travels in Africa (1841-1856) form the core of this book, which was originally published in 1858, the year when Livingstone set off on the British Zambezi expedition. The book also contains a biography, a letter from Adam Sedgwick (then Professor of Geology at Cambridge), and a thorough appendix covering the scientific results of the journey, describing the geography, mineralogy, diseases, and the language and cultural aspects of the peoples Livingstone encountered. Finally, Livingstone reports on the needs and prospects for further missionary work in Africa. Although Livingstone himself felt his calling was now to pursue purely scientific exploration, he hoped that the lectures and their subsequent publication would encourage other missionaries to continue his work of evangelisation
The last journals of David Livingstone, in Central Africa, from 1865 to his death by David Livingstone( Book )

39 editions published between 1874 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edition of Livingstone's last journals detail his search for the source of the River Nile and continue right up until his death. Livingstone writes of his explorations, the local people, challenges and successes. It includes over 40 illustrations and a map of his travels. Edited by Horace Waller, it could not have been completed without the papers, field journals and letters carried over 1,000 miles by Chuma, who had been freed from slavers by Livingstone when he was a boy, and Susi, who had been employed as a wood cutter on the second Zambezi expedition. The publication of his journals helped build the image of an intrepid hero, as Livingstone's legacy grew after his death
