Grahamstown, 1970, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dustwrapper. Dustwrapper a little rubbed at the edges.

Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “This is the tale of how a University College, which later grew into a University, was founded in the Eastern Province of the Cape in 1904, and was then unashamedly intended to be a small outpost of British Imperialism in South Africa. How this aim came, almost from the start, to be forgotten and abandoned, and. How Rhodes grew into a heart-whole South African University, reflects the country’s history through those years. Yet throughout its story and through many trials and troubles, as this book relates, Rhodes has held to the essentially English academic tradition and to its faith in an education which is at once both liberal and conservative.”
