DJ shows light shelf wear.; A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped. ; B&W Photographs; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; 499 pages; "This is the second volume of Frank McLynn's biography of Henry Morton Stanley. It covers the years 1877 to 1904. During this period of his life King Leopold II of the Belgians was a dominant figure. The complexity of Stanley's relationahsip with Leopold is here described - a story of emotional duplicity and double-dealing. Stanley collaborated with the devious Leopold to outwit the nations of Europe and thus to provide the King of the Belgians with the Congo - a personal fief in the heart of Africa. The author does not diminish Stanley's greatness but points up the dark side of the man."
