It haue from the told you part high variety from goates and you may asses, however such as for example plentie from sheepe, oxen and ponies. Most of the kinde regarding fruites are extremely scarce included in this, not too a floor was vncapable from fresh fruit, however, due to the fact people are thus impolite and you will unaware within this behalfe, that not many of those are skilfull for the planting, graffing, otherwise trimming out-of trees. Whereof I was easily perswaded : to own From the which i founde one of specific gardiners off Hea high variety off fresh fruit. Out of graine they haue very little plentie, except it is off barlie, mill, and you will panick.

fanatic was far from good disciple out of Ibrahim, whoever race he along with his successor performed their finest so you’re able to exterminate. Gogideme is actually, maybe, since the one another Mr. Corley, and M. de Averzac possess advised, brand new Gogdem (Cocadem) off Edrisi, placed on the station regarding Arki one week out-of Wad Nun, and you can several out-of Traza, into the channel ranging from these two towns and cities, therefore the just like Gogdem, title of a desert which it requires 9 weeks to help you navigate in route off Tuat so you can Timbuktu. Leo himself, even as we should pick, cities it wilderness on the channel of Plensem so you can Timbuktu. The new name-otherwise existence-ot so it locality was chatted about during the a later on stage. Meantime, it’s, surely, an alluring theory to assume one each other towns are obligated to pay its names in order to exiles inspired by Abd-el-Mumen of Gogideme.-Corley, Negroland of your own Arabs, pp. 19, 20, mention 34 ; Renou, Find sur VAfrique septentrionale, t. ii, pp. 297-298. (129) Tesevon, or Tescevin, is suspicious. Marmol states that the several mountains personal with her were peopled by the the brand new Musmuda Berbers, and therefore the brand new lake and therefore traverses the country sooner or later ioins the fresh Um-er-Rbia. These were terrible, and you will repaid book because of their fields to “the Arab vassals of Sheriff”, probably the Beni-Jebir from Marmol. In the event the “certaine Lake” are, since there seems specific reason behind believing, the new Tessaut este Fukia (Wad Akhdir), following that mocospace login part of the High Atlas where they increases, though the resource, and you will, indeed, the category of lake, possess still becoming traced, is the “Tesevon”. If the “certaine Lake” (united nations fiume) ‘s the Um-el-Abra, new mountains might be one to part of the assortment where Jebel Ben Mellal and you may Jebel Amhaust are the most prominent summits. The issue of placing Tagodat tends to make a nearer character nearly impossible till the Atlas is the best known. A real historicall discourse oj Muley Hamets Jiising; etc. (1609), chap, xvi, the author (Ro. C , maybe Cotlington) relates to a mountain, Jessevon, close by Marakesh. (130) The fresh “area for Tedles” (Tedle away from Leo, Tedla out of Marmol) is practically the modern state away from Tedla, between the Wad-el-Abid, and therefore looks on more mature authors lower than instance a variety of names (Quadelhabid, Hued-ala-Abed, Guedelebi, Louet-de-Leibit, Guadelhabid, etcetera.), therefore the Um-er-Rbia to your which it at some point empties, no matter if Leo takes in much of the fresh Atlas. It is traversed because of the a number of the high situations of one’s Great Atlas, and you will models the place to find of many semi, otherwise completely independent tribes who will be abundant with cattle, fresh fruit woods, etc., and in the grains that they nurture in abundance to your lower basis. There are numerous ” Kasbahs”, otherwise castles, or slope strongholds, such as for instance Bebi-Melall, Ait-Rbia, an such like., the original that has had completely one thousand individuals, in fact it is defended from the about three forts belonging to the Ait-Seri, into defile ultimately causing they.
