Book Description

This is a well documented & illustrated book on all aspects of life & culture in Abyssinia as it emerged from its traditional African status into the spheres of influence of European powers, and before its subsequent 'occupation' by Italy with tragic consequences. As stated above the book is in v.g. condition - apart from a missing frontispiece, and the price reflects that.
