I actually own the hard cover 1892 edition of this book which I use for study purposes when I write historical related topics. Mine was published by Houton, Mifflin & Co. Boston & N.Y. and printed by The Riverside Press of Cambridge.
This book shows a lot of information pertaining the his life and his adventures and what he went through doing it. My edition shows sections of the actual written documents, some of his own handwriting too which makes it all the more interesting to read.
