373 pages, illustrations. As one of the British women authors who wrote of travel, Van Wyk Smith notes in The Origins of Victorian Images of Africa that she popularized her late husband's work in this fictionalized account since she also addresses the horrors of the slave trade. OCLC records only 9 copies, only two within the US. Bound in 3/4 green morocco over green silk covered boards, raised bands, black morocco spine label gilt, compartments fully gilt decorated, all edges marbled with matching endpapers, a couple of leaves with creased corners, binding rubbed.
