ABOUT THIS BOOK : "Much has been written concerning the art of the Bushman and its possible relationship to the art of the Paleolithic period in western' Europe. ielizko has profited by all this and expecially by intimate contact with the late Dr. Emil Holub, one of the earliest and best known investigators of the subject in question. In fact his work is based largely on the collections brought back by Holub from his two expeditions to South Africa. These include originals chiseled from the rocks as well as copies. The late Professor Felix von Luschan, who had given much thought to the problem of the Bushman petroglyphs, finally came to the conclusion that they were pre-Bushman. The author doesnot share this opinion. With Holub he believes that the petroglyphs belong to four different epochs recognizable also through differences in technique. He believes that the youngest of these four epochs came to an end only recently, perhaps not more than 100 years ago. It is also pointed out that representations of the human form are of the Bushman type. Both author and publisher are to be congratulated on the fine quality of the plates, which transmit the essence of the originals to a remarkable degree." source : AMERICAN ANTHROPOLOGIST [N. s., 28], George Grant MacCURDY, 1926.
