(Mendelssohn II, p. 316 [1897 edition]) "The work was compiled from notes originally drawn up for the use of senior classes at the Albert Academy, Burghersdorp, and although it has been written mainly for school purposes, the contents are so concisely arranged that it can serve as a text-book for those who have not the leisure to study the more lengthy productions of other authors. There is a list of important events in South African history, arranged in chronological order, as also a list of the commanders and governors of South Africa from 1652 to the present date." - Mendelssohn. Henry Bindley Sidwell (1857-1936) was the first person born in South Africa to become an Anglican bishop. "As a bishop Sidwell devoted much of his energies to educational work, including the maintenance of church schools in his diocese, and also to work among the Cape Coloureds, by whom he was much loved. He was the author of a short school textbook, The story of South Africa, and was largely instrumental in founding the Anglican mission in Ovamboland, for which he raised a great deal of the necessary money." - DSAB I, p. 722.
