With frontispiece, 6 woodcuts, 7 lithograph. plates and 1 lithograph. folded map. XIX, 523 pp. Gilt-stamped contemporary cloth. First edition. - Gay 3119. - Logan 1150: "An early missionary account, chiefly of the Kuruman area." - "The reader is first introduced to the rural and village life of the Cape Colony. Sketches of social and religious life in the Free State and Transvaal Republic are followed by a description of long-established mission stations. Several chapters are devoted to the Makololo Mission, which was inaugurated so auspiciously and ended so fatally. Narrating events as they took place, I have left their lessons to be drawn by others. My journey to Matebele-land enables me to describe the hideous form of society in a purely military tribe. Our residence at Shoshong, and the experiences of the Mission there, are given in the concluding chapters. The Appendix contains what may be read with advantage as an introduction to the present work. I would specially direct attention to that part of it which describes the results of the past contact of Europeans with South Africans." (Preface). - Rubbed and bumped, some tears; somewhat loose, slightly foxed, map with creases. - Beschabt u. bestoßen, Rücken mit Einrissen; Bindung gelockert, teils leicht stockfleckig, Karte mit Einrissen.
