Description

Excerpt from The Native Races of South Africa: A History of Intrusion of the Hottentots and Bantu Into the Hunting Grounds of the Bushmen, the Aborigines of the Country

The photographs Of Bushmen were supplied by Miss Lloyd from her large collection. They show the striking features Of the people Of this race the hollow back, the lobeless ear, the receding chin, the sunken eye, the low ness Of the root Of the nose, the scanty covering Of the head with little knots Of wiry wool, and the low angle Of prognathism as compared with negroes.

Having, jointly with Miss Lloyd, corrected the proofs and revises, I added an index, which is indispensable for a work Of reference, and with this completed what was no more than the duty of one holding the appointment of colonial historiographer with respect to a work Of such importance for both ethnological and historical study as this of Mr. Stow, who has been long in his grave, and whom I never had the pleasure Of meeting, though my researches in the same field were well advanced in one part Of South Africa before his ended in another.
