A Short History of South Africa (1486-1826)

by Theal, George McCall

Condition: Good/No Jacket

Darter Brothers & Walton, 1890. First Edition. Hardcover. Good/No Jacket. First in this edition, in original binding. The pressed boards are shelf rubbed, edge worn and marked. The cloth at the edges of the spine is lightly torn and frayed, but the boards remain otherwise strong and square. Internally, there is mild, sporadic foxing throughout, and the end pages are a touch tanned. This does not affect the clarity of the text in any way, and the pages within remain clean and complete, with 10 fold-out maps. The binding is secure. JK
