47 pages, colour frontispiece, maps and numerous plans and illustrations, blue cloth, a very good copy in the dust jacket.

\'In the first part of the book the author considers some possible European sources of origin of the Cape rural vernacular architecture and traces its development during the first two centuries of Colonial settlement at the Cape. In subsequent sections he deals with the architectural components of the Cape wine farm and stock farm, ranging from simple wolwehokke, vethokkies, soap houses, pigsties, fowl runs and dovecots to the ornate manor houses and wine cellars. The book is profusely illustrated with over 190 line drawings and photographs by the author and 90 drawings and photographs by Alys Fane Trotter, Johannes Mulder, E.V. Strade, Arthur Elliot and others.\' Editor’s note.
