Barth's Travels in Africa (Timbuktu, Sokoto, the Niger, West and Central Soudan)

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Used, good condition. Tight binding. Internally clean and bright. Obvious shelf wear, mainly to the spine.

Includes accounts of Timbuktu, Sokoto, and the Basins of the Niger and Benuwe. The travels of Dr. Barth in Northern and Central Africa rank among the foremost of the enterprises which have illuminated our ignorance about Central Africa. They have an especial value, too, as being almost the sole record of a state of things which has considerably changed since his time, and will no doubt rapidly change still further.

This volume forms the second half of Barth's "Travels in Northern and Central Africa," thus completing the work. It will be found no less interesting than the first half, giving an account of Sokoto and Timbuktu, which is invaluable as a historic record. Great Britain has now a greatly increased influence and interest over the larger part of the Niger, as well as the Benuwe and the surrounding districts, and this book gives a vivid picture of the remarkable civilisation found in full vigour in many parts of Central and Western Soudan.
