This part of Valentyn's monumental work includes 149 pages devoted to an account of the Cape, and possesses several maps, charts, and illustrations of the natives, fauna, &c. Theal says (" History of South Africa, 1486-1691 ") that " the author, who was a clergyman, called at the Cape in the years 1685, 1695, 1705, and 1714. He was supplied by the Government with a great amount of information, including copies and charts, and several documents. Using this as a basis, he added to it from personal observation, and from communications, oral and written, from many of the principal residents in the Colony. The whole is worked up into an admirable description of the country."
