Descripción

Slight fading to the bottom board edges , Contents FINE (AS NEW). This book was first published in 1858. A new impression was printed in 1906. A further new impression, this one, was printed in 1968. Mcclean's compendium of Kafir Laws and Customs was the First Book of Its Kind. Indeed, It Represents One of the Very Few Attempts Made in the Nineteenth Century Anywhere in Africa, to Come to Grips with African Law. First Published, As has been said in 1858, When Nearly All Information on African Social Organisations Was Derived from the Writings of Missionaries and Travelers, It Reflects the First Systematic Attempt To Record and Describe the Indigenous Customary Law of an African People, the Xhosa and Related Groups of the Eastern Portion of the Cape Colony. Intended Originally As a Guide for the Use of Magistrates and Other Administrators, The Compendium Contains Invaluable Information on Customary Rules Relating to Tribal Government, Crimes and Civil Wrongs, Marriage and Divorce, Inheritance, Guardianship and Land, Which Has Formed the Basis for Several Subsequent Inquiries by Government Commissions As Well As Scholars. And Even Today Descriptive Material Continues to Be of Interest, Not Only for Those Concerned with a History of African Legal Institutions, but Also for Those Who Seek to Measure the Extent and Quality of the Changes Which Have Occurred in African Society during and after the Colonial Period.171pp A LOVELY COPY!
