I Presume – Stanley’s Triumph and Disaster.


“Dr. Livingstone, I presume?” is one of the most famous greetings ever uttered, and certainly one of the most ridiculed. It became, and has remained a stock Music Hall joke ever since, and has earned Stanley a far wider fame than the occasion which prompted it. How did this affect Stanley? In his biography, the author, drawing on papers which have not before been consulted or published, builds up for us, a picture of a rather lonely, humourless man, ever conscious of his humble origins, but full of burning ambition to succeed.
