Comments
Captioned "Slave market in Mascate" (Masqat or Muscat, today the capital of Oman), shows Arab traders and onlookers with captured black Africans. This illustration accompanies a lengthy eyewitness account by Loarer (no first name given) on slavery on the east coast of Africa (pp. 135-138).
