Stanley, (Sir) Henry Morton (1841 – 1904)
THIS ITEM SOLD. Please inquire about similar material.
Welsh journalist and explorer, famous for his exploration of central Africa and his search for missionary and explorer David Livingstone.
Vintage signature, subscription and date (1899) on a small card. Other than generalized toning, in superb condition. Comes with a small complementary image of the explorer.
Perhaps apocryphal, upon finding Livingstone, Stanley allegedly uttered the now – famous greeting, “Dr. Livingstone, I presume?” Stanley is also known for his discoveries in and development of the Congo region. He was knighted in 1899.
