A Cape Odyssey Hard Cover

Take a wonderful journey back in time with Roger as he investigates historical maps and the mapmakers that have inspired this rich and unusual collection of beautifully illustrated
essays: The author’s research has revealed stories of discovery, development, disease, dispute, dispossession, forgotten places, passes and people.

Together, the essays are a kaleidoscopic view of the social history of the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Colony (1500-1900).



The author practiced medicine, was associate professor of human physiology, and has been an executive and director of businesses locally and abroad. He has also collected historical maps

of South Africa and the continent of Africa; these maps are now conserved at the University of South Africa and Stanford University, USA. His articles on the maps and Cape history have been published in international journals and local periodicals. Roger represents the International Map Collectors’ Society in South Africa, and is chairman of the Bibliophiles in Cape Town, and of the Friends of the Cape Medical Museum.
