British South Africa Company's Claims to Mineral Royalties in Northern Rhodesia - 1964
Government Printer, Lusaka. 1964. Softcover. 33 pages plus folded maps (complete). A scruffy, much owned copy of this extraordinary report from the Northern Rhodesia Government, just as the country was to gain independence. The royalties accrued by the British South Africa Company had been much disputed. This report essentially washed its hands of the matter, shoved it upwards and sideways, despite its brisk language and assessments. The covers of this copy are much worn, creased, marked from handling and shelving. They are secure. Stapled binding. The contents have ample evidence of repeated use throughout. However, they are clean, clear, competent, certain, sound. fk. Our orders are shipped using tracked courier delivery services. Fair/No Jacket.
