Gazetteer of Bauchi [Nupe / Zaria / Ilorin / Kano / Muri] Province.
London, Printed by Order of His Excellency the Governor by Waterlow & Sons, 1920-1922. 8vo, six volumes. Original printed wrappers; maps, genealogical, metereological and fiscal tables; well preserved; provenance: from the Signet Library in Edinburgh, the library of an over 500 year old association of lawyers and solicitors, three volumes with compliment slips of the Crown Agents for the Colonies, addressed to the librarian of the Signet Library, loosely inserted. Very rare first editions. One more volume appeared in this Northern Nigeria series, on Sokoto, not present here and even harder to find. The Gazetteers sum up regional history, genealogy of tribal and clan leaders, give economic data, tax revenue and information on roads and settlements, 'residents in charge, and other political officers,' as well as 'principal native officials'.
