Natalia. A condenced story of the exploration and colonisation of Natal and Zululand. From the earliest times to the present day.

£116.00

Allthough in a rather shabby state,this volume commands a high price,It was published in celebration of Natals fourth centenary,although not dated,I should estimate around 1897,or thereabouts,and claims to be but a sketch history of the descovery and development of the colony.Considerable attention has been given to the stirring events of earlier times,of the daring and dauntless behavior of the sailor explorers,and to show that almost from the beginning of authentic history,the English and Dutch have stood shoulder to shoulder in that grand struggle of civilisation against barbarism.
