How it works


The field of British expansion is well covered in these volumes, as perusal of the "Contents" of each will demonstrate. Both books are in very good condition apart from some fading of the cloth on the boards of vol. I and copious pencil markings in the texts of both. The previous owner studied the subject in detail and some of his remarks, (in Afrikaans), are most interesting. 470 and 388 Pages. Each volume has an index.
