This beautifully printed book illustrating the history of cartography in Southern Africa fails to live up to the cover blurb that claims it 'will long remain a standard work of its kind, admired for its informative text and for the beautiful reproductions it contains of almost a hundred maps'. Nevertheless, I found it very interesting, particularly the first chapters that deal with the earlier maps.
