About this Item

First Edition. Unread. No markings in book. Book investigates how the early-modern English came to envision "Hotentots" as humanity's most base and beastly people. Tracing all the pre-colonial representations of "Hottentots" and "Hottentotism" operative in early-modern England allows us to see the birth and the development of a prejudice that became central to the nation.
