Paris, 1795. Stipple engraving, with etching and mezzotint, 17 1/4 by 20 inches. Minor mat stain, small tape remnants on verso. Very good. A richly detailed and quite striking view of an African village, with families and their livestock and homes, situated near a waterfall, with a rope bridge connecting the two houses. This idealized view of life in West Africa, a humanizing view of African natives, was produced as part of early anti-slavery movements in Republic-era France. Colibert engraved the image after Freret. Rare. (Inventory #: WRCAM50082)
