How it works


" . . . appointed by the Honourable the House of Assembly, on the 20th June, 1861, to enquire into the recent sales of Crown Lands in the District of Peddie"

This is a near-fine unmarked and bright copy of the 20 pp self-covered report and appendixes which established a prima facie case of maladministration and probably criminality by senior officials in the Eastern Cape. The pages remain uncut.

This document, which refers to an important event in the history of the Eastern Cape, is seldom seen - especially in this condition - outside research libraries and archives.
