JANET LIVINGSTONE

Details
JANET LIVINGSTONE

BIBLE in English -- The English Version of the Polyglot Bible. London: Samuel Bagster and Sons, [c. 1870]. 8° (157 x 100mm). 10 coloured lithographic maps, one uncoloured double-page 'chronological map.' Original brown morocco, blocked in blind and lettered in gilt, yapp edges, gilt page edges.

A FINE ASSOCIATION COPY, PRESENTED TO STANLEY BY DAVID LIVINGSTONE'S SISTER, JANET, the front blank inscribed in blue ink: 'Presented to Henry M. Stanley/by Miss Janet Livingstone/5th November 1872./Hamilton. Scotland.' A poignant gift from a deeply religious family following Stanley's visit to Hamilton in late October 1872. Perhaps in conversation with Janet, Stanley had emphasised his own ambitions to continue Livingstone's work.
