"Even though the text dates from 1918, it is incredible how much of what the author describes (landmarks, beaches, buildings, customs) still exists today. And how many of the concerns of a century ago (over-development, automobile traffic, over-fishing) persist! Also interesting are the people and places lost to history, but whose tales live on in current Cape museums, books, and tourist attractions. Descriptions of Cape towns are beautifully written, and accompanying sketches are lovely." Reviewer. Very clean contents.; B&W Illustrations; 12mo; 239 pages

12 Harris, Reader Power for Service The Personality and Work of the Holy Spirit
London, England Christian Literature Crusade 1953 Sixth Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Rare copy. Very clean. Richard Reader Harris, from the Wheaton College Archives and Special Collections.Richard Reader Harris, from the Wheaton College Archives & Special Collections.Reader Harris (Reader appears to be his Christian name, though occasionally he seems to go by the name Richard Reader Harris) was born in 1847. His father was Chief Constable of Worcestershire. The younger Reader Harris became an engineering apprentice on the railways, but was desperate to travel, keeping a bag packed ready to leave immediately if need be. His chance came when Bolivia required a young engineer to develop their railways, and he spent a year there. On returning to Great Britain, he trained as a lawyer, was called to Grays Inn and took silk. In his spiritual journey, he had become an agnostic. However he was increasingly influenced by Christian literature, and was converted in 1884. The moment of his conversion happened, appropriately enough, on a train. He was travelling west through London, and heard the station announcement Ealing! Ealing! Ealing! as Healing! Healing! Healing! He desired that healing, committed himself to Christ, and missed his stop.; 12mo; 48 pages

The mysterious doctrine of the order is built on esoteric truths of the ancient past, which concealed from the average man, provide insight into nature, the physical universe, and the spiritual realm.The manifestos do not elaborate extensively on the matter, but clearly combine references to Kabbalah, Hermeticism, alchemy, and mystical Christianity."
