Johnson (1854-1928) was a Church of England missionary in Africa for fifty-three years. Among other accomplishments, he translated the Bible and the Book of Common Prayer into Chinyanja. Illustrated with black and white photographs, mapped endpapers (the front is the slave routes from Nyasa to the slave ports of East Africa, the back is the dioceses of the Universities' Mission to Central Africa) and a map within the text (the "Sherriff's" last trip), along extracts from his letters and an index. The externals show mild shelf wear with a sunned (faded) spine and darkened text block edges. Otherwise the interior is clean and the binding is solid.
