Lot #17/08 Ilha de Moçambique byna Hollands: Nederlanse blokkade van Mosambiek-Eiland in 1604, 1607 en 1608 by O.J.O. Ferreira. A study of Dutch efforts at taking Lorenco Marques from the Portuguese some fifty years before eventually deciding on the Cape- what a difference that could have made to African history ? I think most people are unaware of this part of Southern African history. Much of the text of this book appeared in an article in “Historia” 52/2 published in the same year with the title “Byna was Ilha de Mocambique Hollands en die Kaap die Goeie Hoop nie.” However the book has a lot more material, including the appendix, being a list of governors from 1506-1898. This book is also profusely illustrated (black / white). Afrikaans text. According to Google, only two of our university libraries have copies of this obviously rare & important book. Copy no. 3 of an edition of only 25 numbered copies, signed by the author). Jeffreysbaai, Adamastor, 2007. First edition. 4to. Two-tone hardcover. Pp. (vii),114, photos, illustrations, portraits, facsimiles, tables, maps. VG. Reserve price: R800.00 bids welcome
