In 1871, journalist Henry Morton Stanley begins his famous search through Africa for the missing British explorer Dr. David Livingstone. "Stanley in Africa" is an extremely detailed account of Stanley's explorations in the mysterious continent. Of course, the book includes the time when he met David Livingstone and uttered those immortal words: 'Dr. Livingstone, I presume?'
In the late 19th century, Europeans and Americans were deeply fascinated by the “Dark Continent” of Africa and its many mysteries. Hence, "Stanley in Africa", originally published in 1889 by James P. Boyd, became an instant success.
