"Commerce of Lisbon, with the Markets of Western-Africa, in the Year 1803: The Trade carried on with the African settlements, is always in our [Portugal] favour, the balance being for us, as may be seen by the balance from 1796, up to the present time. It ought nevertheless to be observed, that a real entry is wanting from Angola, Bissao, and Cacheu, in consequence of these places carrying on their Slave Trade through Rio de Janeiro, Bahia, and Maranham, from whence some articles are received, such as ivory, wax, &c. without any distinction having been made of them. The greatest export articles are Asiatic goods, amounting nearly to a million, and this export was less compared with 1802, to the amount to 100,000 cruzados."--Page 162

Mission from Cape Coast Castle to Ashantee : With a Statistical Account of that Kingdom, and Geographical Notices of Other Parts of the Interior of Africa by T. Edward Bowdich( )

1 edition published in 1819 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work by Thomas Edward Bowdich (1791?-1824) describes the journey he made on behalf of the Royal African Company from Cape Coast Castle in West Africa into the territory of the Ashanti, a warlike tribe which had legendary resources of gold and which had been attacking European settlements along the Gold Coast. The intention was to make a peace and trade treaty with the Ashanti, and also to learn more about their culture and customs. Bowdich, not the original leader of the expedition, took control, and negotiated a treaty of mutual co-operation and trade. He returned to Europe in 1818, publishing this fascinating account in 1819, but he felt that his own efforts, and his book, did not receive the rewards they merited. He died on a second, scientific expedition to West Africa, leaving his widow, naturalist and artist Sarah (later Lee), to edit and publish his last work
