"The author of this historical and practical account of the diamond industry, and especially of the South African diamond mines, was for many years the general manager of the De Beers Consolidated Mines, a gigantic undertaking founded by the late Cecil John Rhodes. The volume contains a full description of the mines with the fullest details respecting their working. The volume is elaborated illustrated, and many of the engravings reproduce ancient maps and charts and photographs of the greatest interest and rarity in connection with the diamond fields" - Mendelssohn pp. 614-615.   Sinkankas 7233
