Father of Kindness and Father of Horses. Ramosa le Ralipere. A History of Frasers Limited
(Wepener: Frasers Limited, 1958). . Printed by Morija Printing Works, Morija, Basutoland. 247 x 185 mm; pictorial card wrappers; endpaper map; pp. 48; plates. Cover tanned, foxed, somewhat fishmothed, with silked edges; archival tape strengthening to spine; faint trace of rippling to bottom edges. Internally very good; modest condition externally. "Frasers Limited has a good tradition. It has served the community of Basutoland well for many decades and in more recent years has extended its service to the Transvaal by following its customers to the Rand; it has made many friends even amongst its rivals. An eightieth birthday is an occasion worthy to be celebrated, and how better than by publishing this brief record or history? This story is mainly about the Frasers' business in Basutoland, now represented by the parent Company of Wepener, Orange Free State, with its subsidiary Company of long-standing, K. Nolan Limited of Ficksburg, and its much newer, but bigger, subsidiary in Johannesburg, known as D. & D.H. Fraser (Proprietary) Limited, of 316, Commissioner Street... We are fortunate that this history should have been written by a distinguished scholar who knows Basutoland well. Mr. James Walton, the author, is well known as a historian, archaeologist and ethnographer. Over many years he has written about Basutoland and its people and his books and articles are widely read.".
