Description: Cape Provincial Museum, Albany Museum, Grahamstown, Natural History. Volume 10. 1st October 1973. Green wraps, 259pp illustrated. 184mm wide x 240mm high. New unread copy. This zoo-historical gazetteer, embracing as it does a synonymy of place-names and the type-localities of all mammals and birds up to 1970, covers most of Southern Africa south of the Kunene and Zambesi Rivers. But because several type-localities of several critical species occur to the north of these geographical limitations, the relevant place-names in Angola, Zambia, Malawi, etc. have been included. To a lesser degree Tanzania is also represented. The main work in compilation has been the assembling of old place-nams recorded by early travellers, hunters, missionaries, military men and so on, and to key these names to their modern equivalents or, if no modern name exists, to find where the quoted place was and to fix its position as nearly as possible by means of lap coordinates of latitude and longitude.
