LOT 3248
TRAVEL. A journal by a female hand, possibly J.M.A. Bond, on a voyage to, and travelling in South Africa, 1873-1874, approximately 122pp. written in pencil, leaves 19.5cm x 16cm (album defective). Note: her views of Africa are very much of its time but despite her prejudices she provides detailed accounts of life in and around Durban and is particularly observant regarding native life. For example while on a visit to Durban she notes 'Mr Letheram called, showed nuggets from the Gold Fields… told story of his encounter with lions, killed horse, wounded him, arm now useless.', describing the country as having 'a certain indescribable wildness', and at a trial at Government House she notes that 'native chiefs, wooden rings on head, spoons and scrapers in hair or wool feathers 3 feet long, all carry sticks'.
