Period Paper is thrilled to offer items from an incredible collection of wood engravings from drawings by Henry Morton Stanley during his explorative journey through Africa to locate Christian missionary and fellow explorer David Livingstone. The expedition was treacherous and required great navigation, cultural tact and strength. Many who aided in the mission either abandoned it entirely or perished due to disease. This collection features images of various African tribes, native wildlife, weaponry, tribal agricultural tools, indigenous warfare, African cargo transport, and more. Delve into these artistic wood engravings that encompass a most unique and dangerous 700-mile journey through Africa during the 1870s.
This piece was illustrated by Stanley, Henry Morton.
