Rare Colonial Intelligence Report compiled in Lagos some twenty years before Nigeria achieved independence.
Homemade brownish paper wrappers with punched holes for tied binding; title and author in black ink on cover. Seemingly a ribbon copy, typed on rectos only, signed in type at the end: ‘H.L.M. Butcher D.O. 23rd MAy, 1939.’ A fine copy. ff71
OCLC does not record this item in any library but its existence is cited in several published works of anthropology on the Oguja which refer to it as an unpublished work in manuscript which suggests that it may survive elsewhere in an official archive. In the work Butcher examines the power structures around the priest-chiefs and their activities in recent years, citing other Intelligence Reports from 1930 and 1937 and considering, finally, their how amenable they are to colonial rule.
