'River Scenery on the West Coast', c. 1856

Dr David Livingstone's books contained beautiful engraved illustrations of the people, animals and places he had seen. He took great care to make sure that these pictures were accurate. This illustration was produced for his book 'Missionary Travels and Researches in South Africa' published by John Murray in 1857.
