Andrew Geddes Bain (1797-1864) was "road-builder, geologist, explorer, trader, soldier, writer and artist . Utterly fearless and powerfully built, with twinkling blue eyes, he was one of the most versatile men of his day, his contributions to posterity covering many fields. An explorer who travelled far and wide, years before the Voortrekkers set out for the unknown north, he helped, through his publications, to open up the country. His humorous Kaatjie Kekkelbek is part of the national tradition, and his drawings, three of which are in the Africana museum, Johannesburg, have become treasured Africana." - DSAB I, pp. 35-38.

Descripción The Van Riebeeck Society, 1949. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Very Good. No Jacket. The boards are shelf-rubbed and edge-worn, and the spine is rather marked. The corners of the boards are knocked ever so slightly inwards. Internally, a previous owner's signature can be found on the front end page in black ink and there is some marking on the back end page and pastedown. There is some extremely faint foxing throughout. Apart from this, the pages are clean, crisp and complete. Altogether strongly bound and handsome. Nº de ref. de la librería orbr
