About this Item

First edition, third impression. With a sepia frontispiece portrait, 77 photographs, and a large folding map. 8vo, original red cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine which is also pictorially decorated in black, yellow and blue, the upper cover handsomely lettered and with multiple pictorial decorations in black, yellow and blue. xix, 484. A very handsome copy of this scarce title, clean and bright inside and out. VERY SCARCE IN SUCH FINE CONDITION. An intimate and sympathetic dual biography of two French missionaries in South Africa. Distilled from copious journals and letters, the book describes the aims and difficulties of their mission with warm human interest. The book is filled with remarkable photographs throughout. "The life of Francois Coillard might be written from several points of view. He influenced the map of South Africa and the natives far and wide. He deeply stirred the Reformed Churches of the Continent. But possibly his life will prove to have told most profoundly upon his fellow-labourers in the world-wide mission-field; he was pre-eminently the missionary’s missionary. He did not lay claim to be an original thinker, a scientific observer, or a great commander and organizer, yet all who met him felt they were in the presence of genius-the genius of insight, of sympathy, and devotion. He and his wife stand forth as types of those pioneer days which are past for ever. Besides the power of action, both had the power of feeling and expression to an unusual degree, and that is why their history has been deemed worth recording."-preface. Bookseller Inventory # 25979
