The following day the Dey surrendered, not knowing the British had already used up all their ammunition.

An oasis fringed with green plant life, set in the expansive landscape of Africa's Sahara Desert; by a military or naval amateur draughtsman.

Engraving. Sheet: 225 x 160mm (9 x 6¼"). Trimmed and laid on an album sheet.
A portrait of the Moroccan general Bassa, shown in profile and wearing an ornate turban. He is likely to be from the Bassa tribe of Liberia, of whom many were assimiliated into the 'Black Guard', a corps of 150,000 African troops created by the Alaouite sultan of Morocco, Moulay Ismail (1634-1727). Because of their lack of tribal affliations they were regarded as more loyal than the Arab and Berber Moroccans. One Bassa was an Amir who commanded the guard; another, Mahomet Bassa, duan of Tunis, signed a treaty with Charles II in 1662, after Charles received Tangier as a dowery from Portugal.

Archibald Dalzel (17401811), adventurer and Governor of the Gold Coast (now Ghana), compiled this work from his own experiences and those of others including Robert Norris, a slave-trader. His arguement in favour of the slave trade was that raiding of Dahomean villages for slaves was saving them from the greater evil of being human sacrifices, which he illustrates here. Despite this stance the 'History of Dahomy' was the standard text about the country, consulted by Sir Richard Burton for 'A Mission to Gelele, King of Dahomé' (1864) & George MacDonald Fraser for his Flashman novel, 'Flash for Freedom!'.

Originally constructed as a rudimentary building, by the Dutch, it changed hands four times from the Dutch to the Swedes, then to the Danes, back to the Dutch and finally to the British in 1674. Here, they built a small fort and called it Fort Charles, after the reigning monarch King Charles II. In 1753 the British began construction on Fort William, and later became known as Anomabu Fort, which then became the centre of British slave trading along the Gold Coast until the slave trade was outlawed in 1807.

Two views of European forts in Ghana. Fort Amsterdam was built by the English c.1640 but was captured by Admiral Engel de Ruyter of the Dutch West India Company in 1665. As part of the Dutch Gold Coast the fort stayed under Dutch control until it was traded with the British in 1868. Fort Royal was built by the Danes in 1661 as Fort Frederiksborg, but sold it to the English in 1685, preferring Christiansborg Castle. The English rebuilt the fort in 1699, renaming it Fort Royal, but abandoned it soon after.

Pub. July 1834, by Ackermann & Co. 96, Strand.
Very scarce lithograph, sheet 185 x 215mm. 7¼ x 8½". Sheet trimmed.
Two European travellers visiting the tomb of Richard Lemon Lander (1804 - 1834), who explored the course of the Niger river, West Africa. The son of a Truro innkeeper, Lander's explorations began as an assistant to the Scottish explorer Hugh Clapperton, on an expedition to Western Africa in 1825. After Clapperton's death near Sokoto, Lander proceeded southeast to Kano and then returned to the coast through the country of the Yoruba people. He returned to Western Africa in 1830, accompanied by his brother John. They landed at Badagri and followed the lower Niger River from Bussa to the sea. After exploring about 160 kilometres of the Niger River upstream, they returned to explore the Benue River and Niger Delta before travelling back to England. On a trading expedition up the Niger in 1832, Lander was wounded by tribesmen attacking his canoe, and he died soon thereafter. Probably from A Journal of the Niger Expedition...by Macgregor Laird and D. N. R. Oldfield, London, 1834, 2 vols. Laird and Oldfield are likely the two men here depicted.

London, Published Sept.r 1840, by John Murray._ Hodgson & Graves. _ Ackermann & Co.
Coloured lithograph. Printed area 210 x 260mm, 8¼ x 10¼".
A view of an riverside settlement in Nigeria, published in Captain William Allen's 'Picturesque views on the river Niger, sketched during Lander's last visit in 1832-33'. Despite Mount Pattèh's distinctive table-top, the location has never been unidentified, although the botanist Vogel described the mountain as being 'near the confluence of the Niger and Benue Rivers, Northern Nigeria'. In 1832 Richard Lander led an expedition to found a trading settlement at the junction of the Niger and Benue rivers. However, the expedition encountered difficulties, including deaths, fever, and Lander was attacked by Africans, receiving a musket ball in his thigh. He managed to return to the coast, but died there from the infected wound.
