Bestuur En Aanmoediging Voor Ieder, Die Ernstig de Zaligheid Zeokt. Naar Het Engelsch Van John Angell James
Collard & Co. Heerengracht No 24, Kaapstad. 1842, First Edition. Hardcover. 160 pages (complete). In Dutch throughout. A stoic copy of this VERY RARE copy. Collard & Sons, Stationers of Heerengracht, Cape Town were one of the very first publishers in the city. VERY FEW copies of their publications survive, and even FEWER are available for sale. This edition was revised by G W Stegmann of the Dutch Reformed Church (the church, St Stephen's in Cape Town, which he helped support was, at the time, being also used as a school for freed slaves). A much owned, recklessly stored copy. The boards are considerably worn, marked, stained all about. The cloth spine has, at some stage, been repaired. The spine and the boards are resolutely steady and sure. The end pastedown has doodles. The contents have storage stains about the top corners and edges. These do not intrude far into the pages. The pages are venerable, aged, certain. There are age-related marks. The guttering along pp 90/91 is cracked, but the security of the pages is unaffected. The contents have evidence of avid use throughout with some wear, creasing. Despite all of this, the pages are clear, orderly, rigorously assured, more than competent, placid. fk. Our orders are shipped using tracked courier delivery services. Good/No Jacket.
