How it works


For its size, Knysna is probably the best known place in South Africa. It is known, however vaguely, as a town built upon the shores of a lagoon of breath-taking beauty; as the home of stinkwood furniture, and as the place where an Englishman named George Rex, allegedly the son of King George III and the Quaker, Hannah Lightfoot, settled at the beginning of the nineteenth century... forestry, Millwood Goldfields, elephant hunts, etc. The book is embellished by the delightful sketches of Leng Dixon, as well as 16 pages of illustrations ; 192pp.

Condition: the pictorial boards are in good condition, previous owner signature to f.p.e.p. and title page, foxed end-papers, text and illustrations/photographs good; page edges yellowed with age, binding is sound. The jacket is heavily chipped and spine faded, with some loss at spine ends and on lower rear panel; not price-clipped
