Title: The False Bay Story
Description: (Cape Town: Human & Rousseau, 1977) 0798107774. . 8vo; original turquoise boards, lettered in white on spine; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 181, incl. index; profusely illustrated with contemporary artwork and photographs, incl. a little colour. Dustwrapper a little rubbed and edgeworn, with earlier owner's repairs to reverse; edges of boards rubbed; gift inscription to front free endpaper; some foxing to edges and endpapers, occasional fox spot elsewhere. Good to very good condition. "With The False Bay Story Jose Burman completes his trilogy of books on the sea approaches of the Western Cape. But whereas The Saldanha Bay Story deals with the attempts to make a harbour of a mighty land-locked bay, and The Bay of Storms is devoted to the tragedy of storm and shipwreck which forms the story of Table Bay, The False Bay Story is a book about people - a very human tale... The book is illustrated with some 110 monochrome and colour pictures, showing life in False Bay in all its aspects - fascinating views of Simon's Town, Fish Hoek, Kalk Bay, Muizenberg, the Strand and Gordon's Bay down the years. The 16 charts and maps drawn between 1656 and 1796 make The False Bay Story a book which is not only packed with information and brimming with interest, but a work of Africana that will enjoy a wide interest.".
