First edition. Printed in an edition limited to 388 unnumbered copies. This is the fifth in the series about rock painting in South Africa with a collaboration of Mary E. Boyle and a foreword by Roger Heim. This volume describes two expeditions made by Abbe Breuil to Rhodesia, then Southern Rhodesia in 1948 and 1950. His study reveals affinities with the White Lady, and traces of immigrants from the north several thousand years before the white settlers of our own time. Most of the paintings here have never before been published and are largely unknown. Regions include Dandabari, Chamavara, Mbara, The Chibi Reserve, the White Rhino shelter, and more. It is illustrated with 63 color plates, reproduced by the collotype and hand-stencil process by the Trianon Press, 19 photographs in monochrome collotype, and 3 line illustrations.
