How it works


The half-bound leather and heavy green cloth-boards of this large volume are rubbed and the corners are frayed. The book covers the first six months of 1896. It remains tightly bound, although there is a binding crack between the second-last and last sections. The book is unmarked except for two different library stamps. The endpapers are lightly foxed and there is light sunning towards many of the page edges.

A feature of these gazettes in their many large fold-out schedules - monthly for import commodities and values and gold production, as well as less frequent tables for, for example, revised telegraph and postal rates. Most of these are intact, but a few are present but torn or loose. Other regular features are ward-lists of all burghers entitled to vote and trading licences issued, with a large number of these being awarded to persons with recognisably Indian names.
