Intended to be uniform in format with ‘The Bantu Tribes of South Africa’ series but this was obviated by World War II, a note from the editor which is tipped in at the title page in some copies but not present here, states, ‘The General Editor regrets that the format of this section does not correspond with that of previous sections owing to enemy action at the Cambridge University Press Bindery in London.’ (source Clake’s Africana & Rare Books, Cape Town)
