Description

For those familiar with present day Morocco, this volume, first published in 1911, allows a fascinating comparison with the people and places in that country over seventy years ago. The author, founder of the British Settlement at Cape Juby, spent many years in Morocco where he carefully studied the habits and customs of its people, travelling widely throughout the region. His book, though written with a missionary zeal common to the period, is nonetheless a factual account which is greatly enhanced by the large number of illustrations. Over fifty photographs, many of them providing glimpses of cities and landscapes forever lost to modernization and change, are included in the work. These, together with the author's narrative complete a general description of Morocco at the turn of the century that will be of great interest to students of North African history, as well as the general reader.show more
