Just like its predecessors, the thirteenth volume in the series source publications that deals with the early history of the Orange Free State, meets all the requirements that one expects from this type of historical work : comprehensive and elucidative annotations (in this case there are no fewer than 362 footnotes), a map and nine other apt illustrations, two appendices (the one in which an annotated list is given of all the main settlements which existed in the present Orange Free State and Lesotho and the immediate vicinity during the period 1845-54, is particularly handy), and then there are the suggestions for further reading (p. 141), as well as a comprehensive index (pp. 143-147).
