        Abyssinia is the best book I have read so far, it's adventurous and exciting. I loved all the connections in the book, even though I had to go back and forth. I would recommend this book for anyone that's looking for a book with exciting adventures!! flag Like see review/5. An account of exploration among the slave traders of southern Ethiopia.

      To write with knowledge of Abyssinia, the Government, the inhabitants, their manners, customs and outlook on life, is a task that can only be undertaken by one who has lived and travelled in the country, Difficult of approach, moun- tainous, with no conveniences of travel, few roads and scarcely more than half a dozen towns, it is a country which offers obstacles at every turn., . Get this from a library! Slaves and Ivory, continued: letters from Capt. Richard C.R. Whalley, British Consul at Maji, S.W. Abyssinia [R C R Whalley; Cynthia Salvadori]. Abstract. T he ancient Empire of Abyssinia, or ‘Ethiopia,’ includes the former Kingdoms of Tigré, in the north-east; Amhara and Gojjam, in the centre, and Shoa in the south; together with the modern acquisitions to the south, Harrar, and the Galla, Shankalla and Dankali territories. The following are the principal provinces into which the country is divided: Tigré, Southern Tigre .

      At first, the trade included gold, ivory, and pepper, but the establishment of American colonies in the sixteenth century spurred a demand for slaves, which led to the kidnap and enslavement of people from the West African coastal regions (see African slave trade).   I just read “Slaves and Ivory in Abyssinia,” by Major Henry Darley, who spent a number of years, amazing as it seems, in Maji itself. The weight of human suffering seems palpable on my shoulders this morning. The Nile Tributaries of Abyssinia; Macmillan and Company, London Samuel W.
