How it works


A very good copy in publisher's pictorial card covers and cloth spine. The boards are sturdy and sound. There is a nick on the fore-edge of the book (as per images) not effecting the text.

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.
