Descripción

Octavo. Original red fine-diapered cloth, title gilt to the spine, black rules to the upper board, black surface-paper endpapers. Slightly rubbed and soiled, spine sunned and a touch mottled, hinges cracking, but sound enough and just lightly toned, a very good copy. First edition. Uncommon account of service in West Africa. Ellis first travelled out to West Africa in the early 1870s as a Captain in the First West India Regiment, subsequently he was civil commandant of Sekondi and Chamer on the Gold Coast in 1874; district commander of Quittah in 1878 and of Accra in 1879; commander of the Haussa Constabulary 1878; chief officer of the troops on the Gold Coast in 1882 and in 1886. He received the medal for the Third Ashanti War, and was employed in the Intelligence Department during the Zulu War. The present work, his first, is an anecdotal account and quite light in tone, but Ellis also published a more sober History of the Gold Coast, and serious anthropological accounts of the Yoruba-, Tshi- and Ewe-speaking peoples. He died of fever at Teneriffe in 1894, just 42 years-old. Contemporary ownership inscription of Seymour Le Marchant "Capt. late Haussa Constabulary" to the verso of the front free endpaper.
