How it works


A.T Bryant is renowned as the greatest ever authority on the Zulus. This classic volume is regarded as 'his life's work.' This book is from a limited edition, being 45/100, signed by the author in the first volume.

Editor's note to later edition. 'The Zulu People is by far Bryant's most ambitious work: it is indeed his life's work, in that its material was collected over the years 1883 to 1935 largely by personal contact with the Zulu himself (including those then living who were related or close to Shaka, Dingane and Mpande) and supported by research into the writings of hundreds of early authorities, travellers, explorers, missionaries, adventures, etc. The finished book is a veritable mine of information, and is unquestionably the most exhaustive work that has been so far produced...'  

This book is presented in 1/4 leather and printed on paper that is heavier and superior to the paper in the standard edition. Firmly bound, spotless paper and overall a splendid set.
