The Van Riebeeck Society for the Publication of Southern African Historical Documents was founded in August 1918 'to print or reprint for distribution among the members, and for sale to the public, rare and valuable books, pamphlets and documents relating to the history of Southern Africa'.
For over 95 years the Society has carried out this objective by publishing one volume annaully. Most have been in English but there are also some in Dutch, Afrikaans, seTswana and isiXhosa. There were fifty volumes in the first series. Many are out of print and command high prices in the Africana rare book market. This volume is No. 46 in the second series.
The society relies solely on the voluntary unpaid efforts of its contributing editors and its committee of scholars. It has been ably guided by a series of distinguished South Africans since John X. Merriman, sometime Prime Minister of the Cape, became its founding chairman.
The Society is open to all. Those interested in South African history, particularly such rich sources as those published by the Society, contstitute the Society's membership. Members receive each new volume and are entitled to buy available back numbers at special rates. Students receive a special discount in the first two years of their membership.
