This rare pamphlet, printed in Algiers, includes a speech by Désiré Bordier, a naval captain, who was also a member of the academy, Meteorological Society of Algiers, and various historical and geographical organizations.
In this speech Bordier discussed the most convenient routes to the interior of Africa from the coast of Tunisia, the country colonialized by France in the same year. As a starting point he suggests the island of Djerba and describes the most convenient routes to reach Sudan. Désiré Bordier calls France to take this new paths to increase its trade with the central Africa, as the their trade is momentarily significantly behind of that of England and Italy.
In the 1880s Bordier authored several other publications on Africa, its routes and monuments.
The pamphlet is very rare. We could only trace one example (Bibliothèque nationale de France).
