Or a comparative vocabulary of nearly three hundred words and phrases in more than hundred distinct African languages

Graz 1963. Reprint of the ed. London and Salisbury 1854, enlarged with a historical introduction and an index by P. E. H. Hair, 250 pp., 1 map, large quarto, cloth.

A fundamental work of African linguistics, the Polyglotta Africana reproduces approximately 300 words and sentences in over 100 languages, in an incredibly precise manner for the time. In addition to the linguistic significance of the work, the biographical and geographic information it contains is of historic value. There is information on the provenance of former slaves, the circumstances before and after their captivity, and their destiny on the way from the interior to the coast as well as other valuable material.
