What Our Customers Say...

Description

Publishers' Original Binding

A Folk-Lore Society publication of this interesting account of the beliefs of the Amazulu people, with text both in the original Zulu accompanied by its English translation by Henry Callaway. Printed in double-column so the translation and the original text appear side by side. 

This edition was published in 1884 by the Folk-Lore Society retaining the text of the 1870 edition. 

A fascinating study of the beliefs of the Nguni ethnic group of the Zulu people, found in Southern Africa. The book is presented in question and answer format. Complete in four parts: 'Unkulunkulu or the Tradition of Creation as Existing among the Amazulu and Other Tribes of South Africa,' 'Amatongo; or, Ancestor Worship,' Izinyanga Zokubula; or, Diviners,' and 'Abatakati; or, Medical Magic, and Witchcraft.'
