Product description

Tippu Tip: The Story of His Career in Zanzibar and Central Africa - Narrated from his own accounts
by Heinrich Brode
with a preface by Sir Charles Elliot

Published by The Gallery Publication, Zanzibar 2000

Fine condition.

"This fascinating book is a new edition of Dr. Brode's highly readable account of the career of the Zanzibari trader, Tippu Tip, and account which was first published in 1903. Dr. Brode was acquainted with Tippu Tip and persuaded him to write his autobiography. Brode has used Tippu Tip's account extensively, sometimes quoting from it at length.....Although widely remembered as a slave trader, he comes across in this book as an ivory trader, as the Sultan of Utetera and as a regional governor in the early days of Belgian rule in the Congo. Of particular interest are the accounts of his relationship with the explorers Livingstone, Cemaron, Stanley and Wissman."
