How it works


Original green boards with Vryheid crest to upper board. Limited Edition-Unnumbered.

The publication of this book on the foundation and history of the Niewe Republiek, 1884 to 1886, and the pioneers of Vryheid marks a new departure from the usual work of the Museum and it is the first of a new series of publications, which the Natal Museum hopes to issue in the future.

This book pays tribute to the pioneers of a part of the province which has contributed much towards the general welfare of the Republic of South Africa. It comes appropriately at the time of the opening of this here presented through the Museum's Hall of Natal History and the celebration by the people of this province of the landing of the first White settlers exactly 150 years ago. Most of the 1824 settlers of Natal were intent upon trade and they were followed into Natal by the Voortrekkers who were farmers at heart. Similarily the pioneers of the Nieuwe Republiek held mainly to the land for their livelihoods and the story of the infant state is here presented through the medium of the Nieuwe Republiek Staats Courant now appearing for the first time in translated form.
