Faber and Faber, London, United Kingdom, 2007


Good Good, Hardcover 1st Edition


Faber and Faber, United Kingdom, 2008. Book Condition: as new. Illustrations (some col.),


maps, ports. (some col.) (illustrator). Henry Morton Stanley was a cruel imperialist - a bad man


of Africa. Or so we think: but as Tim Jeal brilliantly shows, the reality of Stanley's life is yet


more extraordinary. Few people know of his dazzling trans-Africa journey, a heart-breaking


epic of human endurance which solved virtually every one of the continent's remaining


geographical puzzles. With new documentary evidence, Jeal explores the very nature of


exploration and reappraises a reputation, in a way that is both moving and truly majestic.
