Discovering the meaning in the 18th Century Cape country dwelling

From the rear cover: “Cape colonial farmsteads built in the later 18th through to the early 19th centuries are a major tourist attraction in an area known as the Cape winelands. Who were the people who built these houses? When and why did this unique style of architecture emerge in a colony of impoverished, semi-literate, European peasants? And why, of all the Dutch colonies in various parts of the world, did it emerge only at the Cape? These are the main questions addressed by the author.” 31 illustrations. 220 pages. Contents clean and tightly bound. 1st Edition. Condition: Good+. Binding: Softcover. Light edge-wear to extremities. Cover turned up slightly at the corners.
