The front endpaper lists the books available in "BOHN's VARIOUS LIBRARIES published by Bell and Daldy". Discarded paper from another book has been used in the binding process to glue the tied pages together, and you can read the top of the page, which says "How I Found Liv/" and text about David Livingstone. In pencil on the title page is a name, Geo. W. Lane, and date, May, 1873. This book was published in London: Henry G. BOHN, York Street, Covent Garden.
