South African Rail and Harbours, 1932

 

8vo (22,6 x 20 x 0,3cm) 50pp. Original softcover binding with colour illustrations to front and rear. With various fine monochrome photographs throughout.

 

A vintage guide in Afrikaans for visitors to the Kruger National Park. James Stevenson-Hamilton (2 October 1867 – 10 December 1957) served from 1902–1946 as the first warden of South Africa's Sabi Nature Reserve, which was expanded under his watch and became Kruger National Park in 1926. The Tsonga people nicknamed him Skukuza because when he arrived at the area of the reserve he "turned everything upside down" with the banning of all hunting in the reserve and the relocation of all the native kraals. Skukuza camp and Skukuza Airport is named in honour of Stevenson-Hamilton, who is regarded as a champion of wildlife Conservation in South Africa. (wikipedia.com)

 

Condition: Good. The covers and pages have creases running from top to bottom edges, from when the guide was folded. Slight rubbing to covers. Light soiling to rear cover. Small closed tears to fore edge of p.1 and p.37. Text is clean, and copy is still well bound.
