About this Item

First edition. With over 65 plates and 4 maps, most from photographs, including one plate of currency in colour and with some very whimsical engravings as chapter tale pieces. 8vo, publisherís original dark-blue cloth, beautifully decorated in black and gilt on upper cover and spine including a majestic lionís head gilt on the cover. xv, 278. A fine copy, fresh and completely free of foxing. The binding with only the lightest of age mellowing. A scarce African travel narrative and missionary account from the Secretary and Treasurer of the Gaboon and Corisco Mission and Commercial Agent for the U.S.A. Interestingly enough, the account covers in the same rich detail as Africa, visits to Liverpool and the Canary Islands. It gives light hearted accounts of Steamer travel, African Christmas dinners, and monkeys pulling down telegraph wires. On a more serious note are the missionary experiences on the gold and slave coasts, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Gabon and an account of drunkenness among the natives with a reprimand to America for sending rum to Africa.
