Tippo-Tip (circa 1830-1905)
A silver gelatin print. Tippo was the virtual ruler of eastern Zaire and by the 1880s had accrued enormous wealth from slave trading and ivory dealing to clients such as the Sultan of Zanzibar and H.M. Stanley. He spent his retirement in Zanzibar and wrote his autobiography (Brode, 1907) which became a classic of Swahili literature.
Part of the Michael Graham-Stewart slavery collection.
