How it works


A facsimile reprint of the 1911 edition by Struik in 1965. The original edition was almost unobtainable. "Dr. George M. Theal ... has shown me exceptional kindness, and from the rich stores of his unequalled knowledge of things South African has shed light upon many points that to me were obscure." This book covers a very large field of Missionary history from the earliest missionaries - both Catholic and Protestant right up to 1910. It contains a wealth of historical information in 43 chapters and 494 pages. The map is in excellent condition. A really good book. Library stamp on edge. Tape stains on endpapers.
