From the front flap: “Robert Dick-Read spent several years living and travelling in more than twenty African countries; he has run his own art and curio shop in Mombasa, made films on early Christian art in remote parts of Ethiopia, and created from scratch a national museum of ethnography in the Cameroons. In this fascinating and revealing account of his adventures he shows that he has as keen an eye for the country he has travelled through, and the people he has met, as for the objects, from classical African art to simple village crafts, which he collected…” Dust jacket present. First Edition.
