How it works


The author was commissioned to write this book (because, he wrote, more qualified authors had no time for the task) only two months before it was due to be published. From his preface (translated): "Anyone seeking a complete handbook on our Church will be disappointed. Instead, he will find that the story is told through limited text plus many illustrations and captions." In fact, the author's two months' labour gave birth to an attractive history of 200 pp of text with 125 portraits and other illustrations.

The significance of the year 1824 is not clear as Dreyer's book covers much of the earlier years, starting with the arrival of Jan van Riebeeck. It ends with a contribution from the 1924 Moderator of the Synod, Dr H P van der Merwe, and a photograph of the new Huguenot Monument.

The blue buckram-boards, printed in a darker blue to the upper panel and spine, are rubbed, especially at the upper front fore-edge and the extremities. The plain grey end-papers and the 2-col illustrated text pages are unmarked and in better than good condition.
