Excerpt

The name of Henry M. Stanley will be forever linked with the names of Burton, Speke, Grant, Cameron, and Livingstone, as among the greatest of African explorers And, happier than his predecessors, he has lived to see the fruit of his labours, and to behold the light of civilization and Christianity breaking in upon the immemorial shadows of the Dark Continent. The record of his adventurous journey from sea to sea, across Central Africa, is one of the most thrilling narratives ever written. Its great extent, however, filling two large volumes of over a thousand pages, limits its perusal to those having more ample leisure than most readers in this busy age.

These volumes have been condensed, therefore, into this compendious hand-book, without, it is thought, omitting anything essential to the intelligent following of the sturdy explorer throughout his adventurous journey. The greater number of the engravings with which the high-priced edition was embellished are also given.
