How it works


London, George Philip & Son Ltd. 1937. 1st and only Edition. Very good if slightly soiled pictorial card covers. Internally very good with numerous black and white ills throughout the text. Ink stamp on previous owner ( Tony Morgan ). Chapters on Diamond and Gold mining and On the Road, etc. Scarce

"This little book does not pretend to be a complete Geography of South Africa. In particular, all account of South African manufacturers, and of life in cities, is purposely omitted. We have confined ourselves mainly to basic occupations which are the outcome of the physical characteristics of the country, and on which the economic life of South Africa is built up. Most of the illustrations are from photographs belonging to the South African Railways. We are grateful to the 1820 Memorial Settlers' Association for the free loan of some of these, and to the High Commissioner for South Africa for the loan of others."
