First footsteps in East Africa, by Richard Burton

Appendix IV.

A brief description of certain peculiar customs, noticed in Nubia, by Brown and Werne under the name of fibulation.

It has been found necessary to omit this Appendix.

[Editor’s note: This appendix, written in Latin by Burton, contained descriptions of sexual customs among certain tribes. It was removed by the publisher of the book, who apparently considered it to be too risque for the Victorian public.]
