Hardcover with blue/green boards and pictorial dust jacket, book club edition, 896gms, 427 pages, blank endpapers. Published to coincide with the centenary of Livingstone's death, this biography shows the myth of the man to have been a bizarre distortion, and in doing so reveals Livingstone as a complex and paradoxical figure: a man capable of self-sacrifice and ruthless creulty, dogged throughout his life by self-doubts, contradictions and failures. Book is in good condition with general age-related wear and tear and moderate page discolouration/spotting throughout. Boards and dust jacket are in fair to good condition with moderate shelf wear. Dust jacket shows a few small nicks and tears and has been stuck to boards with tape, otherwise no other pre-loved markings.
