How it works


A near very good copy of an extremely rare early history of the Eastern Cape.

There are references to the 1820 and other settlers and the editor is described as an "agent for immigration".

Blue cloth-boards, blind-embossed to the panels, with gilt lettering to the spine, plain endpapers, engraving of "Utenhay" (Uitenhage, correct on the map) with tissue-guard as frontispiece, xviii, 338 pp of text and many appendixes + large (21-fold) map (attributed by the author to his editor) at the front with notes + many illustrations and tables in the text.

Spine-ends bumped and corners lightly rubbed, spine-cracks front and back, with upper hinges loose, ownership initials on the title-page, upper and lower page-edges trimmed, front edge uncut; contents, including text and frontispiece, are complete and otherwise unmarked and undiscoloured; map in particularly good condition, unmarked and undiscoloured, with a new attachment to the binding.
