The Diary of Erasmus Smit


This is the first time that an English translation of “Uit het Dagboek van Erasmus Smit”has been published.As the diary is the only contemporary account of the daily life of the frontiers-men,it is of much importance to the study of the history of South Africa.The material contained herein is fascinating.The reader virtually becomes one of the “trekkers”and experiences with them the jubilations,fears and sorrows of the journey.The trail-blazzers that went into the unknown.

In stock


H/b in nice clean boards,in an illustrated d/w,very much edge and shelf worn,Size 9×6 pp X+189,inc index,no plates text only.Maps to both front and back p/d’s and ffe/pr’s.There is a signature place and date to the fp/d.Hinges strong.Binding good to firm.There is a lot of pencil-notes in the margins,and underlining throughout the text.People should not be allowed to set a perfectly good book in that condition it is nothing short of vandalism.They should be made to rub it all out.
