Description

"Caption, "Talbe, pretre maure, ou marabout" (Talbe, a Moor priest, or marabout); he is wearing various amulets and holding a very long-stemmed pipe; men praying in the background; also a house. Villeneuve lived in the Senegal region for about two years in the mid-to-late 1780s. The engravings in his book, he writes, were made from drawings that were mostly done on the spot during his African residence (vol. 1, pp. v-vi). The same illustration appears in color in the English translation of Villeneuve; see Frederic Shoberl (ed.), Africa; containing a description of the manners and customs, with some historical particulars of the Moors of the Zahara . . . (London, 1821), vol.1, facing p. 63."
