STANLEY, Henry M.

STANLEY, Henry M. The Autobiography of Sir Henry Morton Stanley Edited By His Wife Dorothy Stanley

Sampson Low, 1909.

First edition. 8vo. Original blue cloth, titled gilt, concentric gilt rules with gilt vignette to upper cover and spine, top edge gilt. Sixteen photogravure plates, and a folding colour map of Stanley's African expeditions. A fine copy. Bookplate to front pastedown.

The first edition of Stanley's autobiography, left unfinished at the time of his death and completed by his wife Dorothy using unpublished notebooks and journals as well as extracts from lectures and essay. The weight of the text block tends to place undue stress on the binding and consequently few copies survive in nice condition. Copies that are as clean and fresh as the present one are notably few.
