Book Description (Cape Town: Struik Winchester, 1992) 0947430334, 1992. Author's presentation inscription to title page. 4to; original red cloth, lettered in gilt on spine and upper cover; laminated pictorial dustwrapper and matching laminated pictorial slipcase; pp. 215 + (i), incl. index; maps; lavishly illustrated with contemporary artwork, largely in full colour. Near fine condition. "This is the first full-length biography, in any language, of the remarkable eighteenth-century soldier, scientist and explorer Robert Jacob Gordon (1743-1795). It examines his early life, his explorations in southern Africa, his military service at the Cape, and concludes with his tragic suicide after the surrender of the Cape to the British 1795. Though of Scottish descent, he was first and foremost a Dutchman, serving initially in the elite Scots Brigade and later with the Dutch East India Company, in whose service he rose to the rank of colonel and commanded the Cape garrison from 1780 to 1795. . Quoting extensively from his own translation of Gordon's papers and journals, as well as from numerous contemporary sources, the author skilfully reveals a man of discipline, integrity and humanity, whose resourceful and enquiring mind was indefatigable in its pursuit of knowledge.".
