BULPIN, T V
Your Undiscovered Country
T V Bulpin. First Edition. Hardcover. 47 pages (complete). A scruffy but tenacious copy of this travel guide to South Africa's more intriguing corners. The boards are much worn and marked and scuffed. They are secure and sure. Within, there are cigarette card-style illustrations (obtainable from Total petrol stations) - not all are present, although the majority are (in mild, nostalgic condition). The pages have evidence of usage throughout. They are benign, clear and comfortable and still competent for reference and use. fk. Fair.

BURTON, JOHN HILL
The Emigrant's Manual - Australia, New Zealand, America, and South Africa
William and Robert Chambers, Edinburgh. 1851. Hardcover, with dust jacket. Complete. A robust copy of this utterly fascinating book. It truly lives up to its name and the detail, information, provision of education and thought are explicit. It provides the background to and the ideas behind, and advice for all kinds of emigrant: voluntary or involuntary. Thankfully (despite the book being very much of its time in some philosophy and language) common sense often occurs: "Some maintain that our Celtic brethren are of a tropical race who will assimilate to the climate of hot countries, and be as sound and healthy a people there as they are here, if not more so. But the supposition is too vague to be acted on, and has too close a resemblance to that assertion of natural inequality which justifies the white man in enslaving the negro." The front pastedown has a plate indicating previous holding in the library of Thomas T Kelly (with family crest of ducal crown with greyhound courant). The same Kelly, on the frontispage, inscribed the book to H D Moreland, who in turn signed the book (dated 1867). The final page has faint pencilled notes by Moreland. The red boards are worn, scuffed, rubbed and marked all about. The spine has wear and scuffing all along. The boards and the spine are yet comfortable and steady. The contents have evidence of contented use throughout. The page edges have user, storage marks and wear. The pages are tight, only very occasionally spotted by age, a little discoloured by age, but by far are clean, clear, dutifully diligent, acutely engaging, companionable, tight, competent, benevolent and bountiful. fk.

CAMPBELL, JOHN
Travels in South Africa. Undertaken at the Request of the Missionary Society
Flagg and Gould, Andover, USA. 1816, First Edition. Hardcover, with dust jacket. 398 pages (complete). An historically thrilling copy. Published by one of the very first publishing houses in the United States, Abraham Gould and Timothy Flagg set up their press for the Andover Theological Seminary (now the oldest theological school in the US). The date this book was published and sold at the school, a graduate of the seminary was Hiram Bingham who was one of the first missionaries to Hawaii, and alphabetised the Hawaiian language. The opp first free page has an ex-libris plate for JOHN LOWELL JR. Lowell has SIGNED the first free page. Lowell, was one of the Boston Brahmin families (those families who were the first to settle in Boston). His grandfather was one of these original settlers. Lowell, himself, became very successful. He started and left as a bequest, the Lowell Institute in Boston, whose activities are now spread to the Harvard University Extension School. The plate is also signed: F C Lowell (but it is unsure whether this be the industrialist or the judge!). A most resolute, sturdy copy. The rather functional boards are much worn, stained, aged all about. The spine is also very worn. It has been been reinforced with a leather strip. The boards are stoically sound and steady. The contents are placid. They are aged but benevolent. The early pages, in particular, are stained at the bottom spine corners from storage. Some pages are uncut. Despite their venerability, the pages are assured, a little tanned, clear, clean, confident, generous, comfortable, foxed here and there, genial and congenial. fk. Fair/No Jacket.
