. 16mo. Pp. 373. Publisher's black cloth, rubbed, small tear to upper cover. Signature of Gunnar Brodin on front free endpaper "Dundee, Natal d. 6/7 1920". With additional notation that he received the book from "J.E. N [orenius]". The Ebenezer press was started in 1901 as a part of the Church of Sweden among the Zulu. The initiator of the printing in Zulu was the Swedish missionary Lars Peter Norenius who arrived in South Africa in the late 1880s. The press printed religious and educational works as well as material for commercial purposes. In 1911 or 1912, the Church of Sweden decided to disengage from the press, and henceforth Norenius and later his successors managed it on their own. The press continued to print most of the publications of the Swedish Mission and other cooperative protestant missions in the area. This copy belonged to Gunnar Brodin who most likely received it from Lars Peter Norenius brother Johan Erik Norenius.
