Summary
"This is the first complete English translation of an important and sensitive account of Gold Coast (modern Ghana) in the mid-eighteenth century." "Ludewig Ferdinand Romer was employed in Western Africa from 1739 to 1749 by the Danish West India and Guinea Company. He published two books about Gold Coast, a short one in 1756, and then his more substantial A Reliable Account of the Coast of Guinea in 1760. Romer deals with the operation of the various European trading companies, and discusses the African-European relations that he had witnessed. But the real value of his work lies in his descriptions of the local context - the African traders and customers, their societies, practices and religion. And he was much interested in African history, particularly from oral traditions."--Jacket
