DELETION IN DEFERENCE TO JEWS #2:

 

Here, Burton talks about the "Lampsacan god" and a certain Jewess Maacah (see right page, 7 lines from top, and footnote):  "How strong a superstition this worship is, may be gathered from the annals of the monotheistic Jews, amongst whom Maacah, the queen-mother of Asa, set up the 'horror' in a grove". . .

 

 

. . . But here, the note has gone missing!  What gives? (see left page, 4 lines from bottom):

 

. . . ka-poof!  ( la George Orwell).

 

 

A few more examples, these re. negroes:

 

>  Burton, Vol. I, p. 52-53, cf. Newbury, where it should have appeared at p. 54:  [Re. "the second magistrate, who, if white-washed, might pass muster for a very ugly European"]:  

"I may as well state at once, that amongst the pure negroes I have never seen the 'purely Caucasian features' alluded to by young African travellers: amongst the negroids, or noble race, sometimes, but rarely."

 

>  Burton, Vol. I, p. 72, cf. Newbury, where it should have appeared at p. 64:  [Re. "musical boxes"]:  

"These articles are one of the curses of the West African coast.  Your white friend can pay you no higher compliment than to wind up the abominations, and your black friend will start, if he has them, half-a-dozen at the same time."

 

>  Burton, Vol. I, p. 127, cf. Newbury, where it should have appeared at p. 91:  [Re. "the notably short and sturdy African negro neck"]:  

"The shortness of the pure negro's neck is one of his most characteristic features:  hence he and his female in European attire always appear high-shouldered."
