From the Introduction: “The principle aim of this survey is to record present-day techniques and pottery types…. The summary is limited to the geographical area south of the Zambezi and Cunene Rivers.” “The survey involved field trips to as many reserves as possible. Pottery demonstrations were watched, potters interviewed and photographs taken of earthenware utensils in use and methods of manufacture.” Tribes included in the survey were the Nguni, Tsonga, Sotho, Venda, Lemba, Chopi, Shona, Herero, Ambo and Okavango tribes (non-Ambo). The photographs at the rear are stuck together at the lower corners and the top edge. Cockling to the top edge but does not affect the contents. The verso of the colour frontispiece is stained and cockled. Includes 5 maps. 434 Pages. Binding still firm. Condition: Fair-. Water damage. The photographs at the rear are stuck together at the lower corners and the top edge. Binding: Softcover. Thin card-wraps with water damage. Water marks and creasing to spine. Edge-ware. 4 cm split along the lower spine edge.
