Description

Captioned, Mode of Carrying Ivory, the engraving shows a Central African village scene with people gathered in front of their houses, a woman carrying a jar on her head, a man smoking a pipe; in the foreground a male is carrying a large elephant's tusk on his shoulder while holding two spears in his right hand. This volume is based on the writings of David Livingstone, but it is unclear if the engraving was done specifically for this volume or is based on another source.
