On Horseback through Nigeria

£19.99

Product description

Northern Nigeria is the most recent acquisition of the British Empire Its area is approximately 250,000 square miles, and its population, at a moderate estimate, 8, 000, 000 inhabitants. Its mediaeval civilisation and its medley of tribes and races were first described by Barth some sixty years ago, and up to the closing years of the nineteenth century there were few or no changes in the internal condition of the country. The pagans of the forests and the hills continued to be ruthlessly raided by the Mohammedan slavers of the north, while the Fulani administration of the ancient Hausa States became more and more corrupt. The British occupation in 1900 was dictated first by motives of humanity and later by considerations of policy, and, curiously enough, the greatest resistance to the extension of the Protectorate has been offered by the pagans themselves, whom experience has taught to look upon all strangers as hereditary foes.

**Condition: fair condition hardback - good for age (1911). Slight spine damage. Binding good. Internally intact. Pages discoloured. Some library stamps**
