Aus Namaland und Kalahari


THE scope of this admirable work on Namakwaland and the Kalahari has not any knowledge of political boundaries. Neither is it confined to ethnology or biology. Its range extends over a portion of British Bechuanaland and northern Cape Colony, and it deals slightly with the northern parts of German South-West Africa—Damaraland and the Ovambo countries. It is such a book as can as yet only be published in Germany. The reproduction of Dr. Schultze's photographs of human types, landscapes, birds, and beasts is simply perfection, the photographs themselves being without blemish. Where it has been necessary to make and reproduce drawings in lieu of photographs, these are of great beauty and accuracy, and their reproduction is of a quality apparently unattainable in England.
