Hardcover quarto bound in maroon faux leather boards. Decorative design on the front board with gilt titling to the spine.
The famous narrative of a somewhat enlightened British settler to the Eastern Cape frontier in the colonisation project of the British government.
A man of letters – a poet, a journalist, a social reformer – Pringle describes his experiences in South Africa from 1819 to his return to England in 1826 where he later became the secretary of the Committee of the Anti-Slavery Society. His is a fascinating story which differs significantly from most contemporary accounts of the time.
This 1966 reprint of the 1834 Part 2 of his 'African Sketches' was originally intended to be published in Cape Town in 1825/6. This volume was published in an edition of 750 copies but is not numbered.
The dust jacket (in plastic wrapper) has a few minor chips and tears on corners and back but is in crisp colourful condition. The text block has a little dust staining on the top edge but is in rather good condition. 352 pages with a map and 9 photographic illustrations.
