A Year's Housekeeping in South Africa By Lady Barker
London: Macmillan, 1877. First Edition. Illustrated. 1 vols. 8vo. Original blue-gray pictorial cloth, with a black figure on upper cover, spine faded and frayed at head and foot, else near fine. First Edition. Illustrated. 1 vols. 8vo. "The author had resided previously in New Zealand, and draws a comparison between Christchurch and Pietermaritzburg, which is buy no means favourable to the latter city. The annoyances and discomforts of colonial life are discussed in a good-humoured and witty manner; the writer was much more contented with her Kaffir servants than is usually the case, and even has a good word to say for the 'converted native" -- Mendelssohn. Mendelssohn I, p. 197
