Some considerations concerning d’Avezac’s Notice sur le Pays et le Peuple des Yebous en Afrique
This paper is in the form of research notes. It reviews certain aspects of a contemporary ethnographic study of early nineteenth-century Ijebu society. The original publication of the study was in French but subsequently translated into English with annotations. The objective here is to shed light on issues of anthropological and historical significance concerning the Ijebu arising from the study.
