The Native Tribes of South West Africa
Cape Times Limited. 1928, 1st Edition. Hardcover, with dust jacket. 211 pages (complete). A book sadly subjected to inconsiderate and careless storage. It has been caught by the damp and the there is much marking and staining to the bottom quarter of the book. Fortunately, this does not affect the security or the text of the book. The stains are principally to the covers and the initial and final pages. This is a fascinating book of the peoples of South West Africa. Its stoicism in the face of the storage conditions means that the book is able to be happily used for reference rather than for showing off! The covers are tight and resolute. Inside, the pages are firm, sure and competent. fk. Poor/No Jacket.
