Mendelssohn (Sidney) South African Bibliography, Volume 1 page 575: Three years in South Africa. An account of the journeys, from notes in the diary, with numerous illustrations, taken from photographs and original drawings by the author, and a route map. Fritsch left Germany for South Africa at the end of May 1863, and in the course of his three years' trip travelled all over the Eastern and Western Provinces, the Cape district, the Orange Free State, Natal, Bechuanaland, and Griqualand West, before the latter was known officially by that name, or diamonds had been discovered. There are descriptions of the various districts, towns, and villages, and the information afforded is reliable and interesting, whilst the work contains a large number of illustrations, many of which are coloured lithographs.
