Man with Axe
The name of the author is not mentioned at all in this “Missions-Bilder” publication. Many passages are told from the perspective of a European who witnessed the described situations in Africa. The time span of the incidents runs from around 1820 to 1870. It tells a brief history of trans-Atlantic slavery, its British abolition, the colonization of West Africa from the Church Missionary Society (CMS) point of view, the Muslim Jihad, and focuses on Yorùbáland and its diaspora.
