THE TSISAB RAVINE AND OTHER BRANDBERG SITES.
by Breuil, Abbé Henri
First edition, limited to 1000 copies. The Tsisab Ravine in the Brandberg Mountain range of South-West Africa, which is the site of the famous 'White Lady of the Brandberg," is also the site of a great number of painted rock shelters clustered together nearby. This volume is the outcome of the labors of Abbe Breuil and his companions who camped in the Tsisab Ravine in 1947 and again in 1948 in order to study the sites and to take tracings directly from the rock face. The Abbe's color copies are reproduced by the collotype and hand-stencil process in 77 plates, including one double-page, and are documented by 50 photographs reproduced in monochrome collotype, including two double-page photo-montages. It also includes introductory and topographical material, as well as a detailed description of the plates with the collaboration of Mary E. Boyle, Dr. E. R. Scherz and R. G. Strey.
