198pp + 48 advertising pages at rear (complete). Most of the adverts are illustrated and afford a fascinating glimpse into South African social and private life at the turn of the previous century. They are preceded by an index to the various wares and services available. Fold-out panorama frontispiece of the town as it appeared in 1819 & 1904.
A fine copy. Stamped gilt titling and decoration on the publisher's blue pebble-grained cloth boards. Appears to be a de luxe binding as most copies are usually found in pictorial card covers. The boards are sturdy and sound.
