The Kafirs of Natal and the Zulu Country

London: E. Stanford, 1857

"One of the best works on the native races of Natal and Zululand published up to the middle of the 19th century" (Mendelssohn).

The author spent four years as a missionary in Albert, Natal, and provides a detailed account of Zulu and Xhosa customs and beliefs, and a history of Shaka Zulu and his successors. His own findings are supplemented by reference to the accounts of Döhne, Isaacs, and the early English settler Henry Francis Fynn.

The first edition in original cloth binding. I do not own the copies shown below.
