Description
1857 1ed Barth Africa Travels Voyages Exploration SUDAN Illustrated SLAVE TRADE



Heinrich Barth is thought to be one of the greatest of the European explorers of Africa, as his scholarly preparation, ability to speak and write Arabic, learning African languages, and character meant that he carefully documented the details of the cultures he visited. He was among the first to comprehend the uses of oral history of peoples and collected many. He established friendships with African rulers and scholars during his five years of travel.



This first edition of “Travels and Discoveries” is illustrated throughout and features an impressive foldout map! Barth provides detailed descriptions of ancient cities and city walls, palaces, and mosques. He also gives an accurate state of African militaries and political authorities in the Sudan. However, the most important topic discussed in this book is the prevalence of slave trade. Barth points out how slave trade was monopolized by members of ruling families and that slaves were captured by both slave expeditions an during wartimes. (DeCorse, 110, 172)
