About this Item

First edition. With a portrait frontispiece, 77 photos, and 2 maps (one large and outlined in color in a rear pocket). 8vo, original blue cloth gilt lettered and pictorially decorated on the spine and upper cover. xvi, 356. A fine and bright copy with only very light mellowing to the cloth and minor typical foxing to the pastedown and free-fly. VERY SCARCE. The Sherbro was one of the great revenue-producing regions of Britain's Sierra Leone colony. It was the port of entry for ocean-going steamers and the point of departure for the products of the rich hinterland--including palm oil, koala nuts, rubber, and various fruits and cultivated crops. The author, who was Commissioner at Sherbro, discusses these indigenous products as well as secret societies, ordeals and punishments, various chiefs and treaties, and the Mendi rising of 1898. A scarce title. Bookseller Inventory # 18483
