. Pp. viii, 168. With three folding tables. Original cloth, paper label (partly chipped) on spine, sprinkled edges. With old inscription. Copy of Knut Olivecrona (1817-1905), renowned Swedish lawyer and philosopher. First edition. Colonel John Maclean (1810-74) was Chief Commissioner of the province known as "British Kaffraria" in South Africa. In 1860 it became a separate Crown Colony with its own administration under Maclean as Lieutenant Governor, and finally re-incorporated into the Cape Colony in 1866. The word Kaffir is derived from the Arabic term Kafir which means disbeliever and historically used as a neutral term for southern African people. This work is a comprehensive account of the natives containing papers and letters by the Rev. H.H. Dugmore, Warner, Brownlee and Ayliff. A fine copy. Mendelssohn i, 960.
