Rare British parliamentary papers and correspondence with local agents and officers on the slave trade: "At Brava and Lamo slaves are in large demand, and Pemba is still unsatisfied; neither will Arabia and the Persian Gulf be contented to forego their usual supplies" (p. 25). The maps show "The slave caravan route from Dar es Salam to Kilwa" and a "Sketch of coast visited by Vice Consul Elton during the months of Dec. 1873 & Jan. Feb. & Mar. 1874". Disbound from a volume of parliamentary papers, otherwise as issued, a very good copy.
