In The Man Who Presumed, A Biography of Henry M. Stanley, 1957, Byron Farwell explores the background of the accomplished man whose question, "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?" made his name a household word around the world.

Its lively prose is added to with six pages of glossy photos of people and maps plus a glossary of African and Arabic words.

Stanley fought on both sides of the American Civil War but was not an American; he was knighted by Queen Victoria and served in Parliament but was not an Englishman; he built an empire for the King of Belgium but was not a Belgian.  Find some answers in this book!

This illustrated book is in good condition with a slightly torn dust jacket protected by clear plastic.  The hardcover copy is firmly bound with no tears and no marks other than a Christmas greeting to its first owner in 1957.  A slight browning of pages goes with its age. 

It measures 5 3/4 inches by 8 1/4 inches by 1 1/2 inch and has 334 pages.
