AN ANALYSIS OF THE RESOURCES OF BARGHASH BIN SAID, SULTAN OF ZANZIBAR. Barghash was evidently negotiating for a loan from Britain, and Burton here explains the extensive resources that underpin his creditworthiness. He was the second sultan of Zanzibar after the division of the Arab Sultanate of Muscat and Oman in 1856, and ruled vast swathes of East Africa from his capital of Stone Town. Burton’s report is a snapshot of Zanzibar in the years immediately following Sultan Barghash’s abolition of the slave trade in 1870. Burton had visited the island of Zanzibar with Speke in the 1850s and his book, Zanzibar, had been published in 1872.
