How it works


The author travelled extensively in the Transvaal, visiting Pretoria, exploring the Waterberg & Zoutpansberg areas and collecting samples of particularly insects. Illustrated with fine drawings of animals, insects (four chromolithograph plates) and of tribal implements. Covers slightly rubbed, corners a bit bumped, penci note on end-paper, some browning & foxing. A really nice collectors item of a scarce work
