"In 1867, Royal Navy lieutenant E. D. Young trekked to Africa to find the great missionary-explorer David Livingstone who was reported to be lost while searching for the origins of the Nile. Henry Faulkner joined the expedition primarily to hunt. His efforts collecting elephant, buffalo and hippo in present day Malawi and around Lake Nyasa are duly captured in this rather scarce narrative" (Czech)
Lieutenant Young, who had been with Lvingstone on his second expedition to Lake Malawi in 1863, volunteered to lead an expedition sponsored by the society to ascertain the truth of the allegation.
