How it works


First edition published in 1915 by T. Maskew Miller, Cape Town.

Book is in excellent condition with clean pages, solid binding and the original 100+ year old dust cover which has survived in almost perfect condition for over a century, with only the spine being faded. The front and back panels of the jacket are vibrant in colour.

"A brief but comprehensive account of the country of South-West Africa, its history, its people, its resources, and its great possibilities."

Dedicated to General Louis Botha.

An interesting original bookseller's ticket is on the front endpaper "Africa Books, Box 77, Maseru, BASUTOLAND, SA."
