A Member of H.M. Stanley's expedition threatening a baggage

Engraving showing a member of Sir Henry Morton Stanley's expedition to find Dr. David Livingstone threatening a baggage porter, Central Africa, 1871. The original caption to this image read: 'Look out! You drop that box - I'll shoot you.' The figure with the gun is most likely Stanley himself, although it may be one of his deputies, Shaw or Farquhar. In October 1869, Stanley (1841-1904) was sent by James Gordon Bennett (owner of the New York Herald) to find Dr. David Livingstone, who had been exploring central Africa for several years without passing any communication to Europe. In 1871 Stanley found Livingstone at Ujiji, Tanganika, and with it also, fame and some fortune. Stanley led several further expeditions to Africa, the last of these in 1886 to find and relieve Emin Pasha. In 1892 he took British citizenship and was Unionist MP for Lambeth between 1895 and 1900.
