This book published in 1850 was part of the Wesleyan Missionary Society’s Library in 1855. It is an amazing linguistic encyclopedia of the tongues of Southern Africa. I recognised some of the Zulu words, clicks and grammar from my medical school elective at Mseleni Hospital in northern Kwazulu in 1984 but numerous other languages are covered. I still have a small Zulu phrasebook which I probably have not read since then. This book does not look particularly well used but a great achievement for the author. It also has some lovely endpapers.
