How it works


The book features 153 travellers to South Africa and their works, arranged chronologically - from Bartholomeu Dias (1488) to Jean-Baptiste Tavernier (1649).

The dustjacket is chipped at the head and the foot with small loss of material. The grey cloth-boards are lightly shelf worn. The binding is tight. The plain endpapers have an owner\'s signature on both free leaves. The rest of the book - vii + 216 pp of text, bibliography and explanatory index + frontispiece and 18 inserted monochrome plates - is in original condition.
