This is an original 1884 black and white in-text wood engraving of Dr. David Livingstone being carrying by porters on the last day of his life. He eventually passed away from a combination of internal bleeding from severe dysentry and a nasty case of malaria, in a village located at Ilala, Zambia. Although his body was returned to Britain, the tribesmen cut out his heart and buried it under a tree, claiming that his heart belonged in Africa.
