Henry Morton Stanley, Welsh journalist and explorer, late 19th or early 20th century

Henry Morton Stanley, Welsh journalist and explorer, late 19th or early 20th century. Stanley (1841-1904) was sent by the New York Herald to look for Dr Livingstone, who had been lost for two years in central Africa. Stanley met Livingstone in 1871, and stayed with him until early 1872. Livingstone then set off on another journey and never came back. Stanley's greatest journey was the crossing of Africa to the Atlantic which took him from 1874-1877. He again crossed Africa in 1887-1889, and in doing so contributed to laying the boundaries of what would become Uganda and Kenya. His publications How I found Livingstone and Through the Dark Continent gave detailed accounts of his travels

Oscar Wilde, Irish-born playwright and wit, c1891 (1956)

Oscar Wilde, Irish-born playwright and wit, c1891 (1956). Pictured at the age of thirty-seven. Wilde (1854-1900) studied at Trinity College, Dublin, and at Magdalen College, Oxford, where he gained a reputation for his intelligence, wit and eccentricity. His plays brought him to literary prominence. Lady Windermere's Fan (1892), A Woman of No Importance (1893), An Ideal Husband (1895), and The Importance of Being Earnest (1895), were all huge popular successes. In 1895 Wilde was found guilty of having a homosexual affair with Lord Alfred Bosie Douglas (1870-1945) and was imprisoned for two years for gross indecency'. His Ballad of Reading Gaol (1898), written following his release, expressed his personal and harrowing experience of prison life. Wilde died in 1900 of cerebral meningitis. From the Gernsheim Collection, London. A print from People, a volume about the origin and early history of many things, common and less common, essential and inessential, by Readers Union, the Grosvenor Press, London, 1956
