The Exploration Diaries of H. M. Stanley

Stanley, H. M., Stanley, Richard and Neame, Alan (Eds.)



"[In 1959] at Furzehill Place where Stanley spent his last days, four notebooks were discovered and these proved to be the day-to-day records of the expedition, the diary that [Stanley] rigorously entered up throughout his epic journey. The notepads, despite their vicissitudes through jungles and down cataracts, are in excellent condition, only a little yellowed from age." Here they are "first published from the original manuscripts"
