44 pages plus a separate Commentary by Frank Bradlow in a pocket at the rear of the book. Numbered 385 of a limited edition of 750 copies. The front pastedown has an elegant, wistful ex-libris plate showing previous ownership by Frank Bradlow and his wife, Edna - both of whom were much esteemed as Africana experts and collectors. Facsimile reprint of original 1866 publication from J C Juta in Cape Town. A lovely copy. The boards are handsome, serene with just very, very light storage/ shelving scuffing. The end papers, booklet, and booklet's pocket are healthy, sound, attractive. Within, the early pages have spots of foxing. In general and by far, the pages are stately, beautifully maintained, very clean and clear, most generous and beneficent, thick and tidy - as if almost new! Please note that due to the weight of the book, should the book need be posting outside of South Africa, extra postage charges may be required. fk.
