Code of Instructions for Surveyors and Independent Postmasters 1911
1 Code of Instructions for Surveyors and Independent Postmasters 1911
His Majesty's Stationery Office, London 1911 1st Edition Hardcover Poor No Jacket Hardcover 
1251 pages. Note that pages 1043, 1057, 1074, 1075 have areas cut away. The book has been much used and inconsiderately stored. Nonetheless it is sturdy and stoic. A fascinating glimpse into the workings of an essential service and labour relations at the beginning of the 20th Century. The contents are interleaved with blank pages for notes - some of which have annotations. The cover are tenacious and resolute. There is wear to the edges and corners. The spine is much worn and is cracked along the front seam. The security of the book, however, is assured and sure. The papertrims are tanned and marked. Within, the pages are firm, clean, clear, tidy, very competent and diligent. Interestingly this title is not held at the National Archives at Kew but only at the Royal Mail archives. A fascinating and polite book. fk

S W Silver & Co.'s Handbook to South Africa including the Cape Colony, Natal, The Diamond Fields, The Transvaal, Orange Free State, etc. Also a Gazetteer and Map
4 S W Silver & Co.'s Handbook to South Africa including the Cape Colony, Natal, The Diamond Fields, The Transvaal, Orange Free State, etc. Also a Gazetteer and Map
S W Silver and Co., Office of 'the Colonies and India', Cornhill 1880 3rd Edition Hardcover Fair No Jacket Hardcover 
576 pages (complete). The stated map is absent. Silver & Co was a company founded in the 18th century as Colonial and Army agents, clothiers and outfitters. This reference book is principally for those who were in Colonial service in South Africa and needed an accessible introduction to the various states and colonies etc in the southern africa area that were under or of British interest. This volume is of particular interest as there is no mention, of course, of Johannesburg (then referred to the Gold Fields). The British attitude to the Boer republics is obvious! At some stage this copy has been rebound - rather smartly too! The contents have wear, marking, some damp staining. But, the pages are obliging, thorough, comfortable, clear, certain and provide a fascinating snap shot of the region, from the imperial perspective. fk
