Description

Quarto, xii+773pp., original printed wrappers. Usual damp marking of fore-edges, spine marked and torn to top and tail due to storage. Apart from the spine damage, the book is tight and free from annotations. A good copy of this scarce and important linguistic and anthropological contribution. Collectable; Very Good See Joseph H. Greenberg's review. (This) posthumous publication, marks the end of nearly a century of dedicated and largely pioneering effort by members of the Bleek family in the field of Bushman Languages and folklore. Its basic contribution is the assembling of lexical material on the Bushman languages from almost all existing sources.... The dictionary includes 29 dialects... comprising items from all of the click languages.
