How it works


A description of the Cape Colony, with data of every kind, articles upon agriculture, viticulture, and many notes and hints for the benefit of farmers new to the country.

A detailed account is given of each division in the Cape, with appendices which traverse almost every subject which might need attention or investigation of new-comers. Several maps show the rainfall throughout South Africa, while others give the distribution of sheep, goats, horned cattle, horses, and ostriches over the colony. (Mendelssohn. Volume I  Page 233)

Slight wear to book edges. 355 pages plus 50 pages of advertisements. No names or inscriptions. A clean copy.
