My Kalulu - Prince, King, Slave: A Story of Central Africa [1896]

£24.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Published in 1896 by Sampson Low, Marston & Company. Attractively bound in tan leather with gilt decoration and lettering on the spine, which has five raised bands. Marbled end papers and page edges. With black & white illustrations, including frontispiece.

A fascinating account from the well-known explorer, Henry M Stanley, also the author of 'How I Found Livingstone'. This is an attractive edition whicht includes a number of illustrations and tells of the life of Kalulu who was at different times a Prince, a King and a Slave. It is dedicated to all those who aided the suppression of slavery.

There is an inscription in the front reading: 'R Barton, with good wishes from G Podmore MA. Came Sept 95 left Dec 1900'. The book is embossed with 'Charney Hall' In gilt on the front cover. Charney Hall was a Prep school in Cumbria and the school was run by G Podmore at the time, so it is likely this was a leaving presentation book.

This is a 'new and cheaper' edition from 1896. Nice leather binding embossed with 'Charney Hall' on the front. There is some rubbing wear on the covers. A couple of pages have become detached (but are still Present), however the internal pages are in a good clean condition with only light foxing spots on a few pages.
