Promotional pamphlet for works about Dr. David Livingstone

Livingstone possibly became even more popular after his death. His writings are now valued as a rich source for the history of Africans. His pioneering cartography of eastern Angola and the area that is now Botswana, Zambia, and Malawi was only one of his skills as an amateur field-scientist. He was buried in Westminster Abbey and statues and tributes were raised throughout the world to his memory. A great many books have also been published about this missionary and his travels.

THE PERSONAL LIFE
OF
DAVID LIVINGSTONE

By W. G. BLAIKIE, D.D., LL.D.


Crown 8vo. With Portrait and Map. 6s. net.
Foolscap 8vo. With Portrait. 2s. 6d. net.


HERE for the first time the reader may become
acquainted with the real character of
Livingstone ; he is revealed as a man, a missionary,
a philanthropist and a scientist. Dr. Blaikie has
had the full authority of Livingstone's family for
his biography and he has been given access to
many private journals and correspondence. No
pains have been spared to present a faithful picture
of the great missionary explorer and, in addition,
no better illustration of the true connection
between science and religion has been given to
the world.
