Journal Entry 1 by wingStoepbrakwing from Cape Town, Western Cape South Africa on Sunday, March 25, 2012

This book has not been rated.

This old booklet is titled Het Kasteel de Goede Hoop / The Castle of the Cape (it should have been "The Castle of the Cape of Good Hope" or just "The Castle of Good Hope") and contains no information about its author, date of publishing, or purpose. It contains pictures and bilingual text in Afrikaans and English on The Castle of Good Hope, the oldest building in Cape Town, South Africa. It was printed by Salesian Press, Cape Town.

(Bought second-hand at Kloof Street Library, Tamboerskloof.) 


Journal Entry 2 by wingStoepbrakwing at Cape Town, Western Cape South Africa on Saturday, January 05, 2013

6 out of 10

Interesting from an unofficial historical perspective. Some lovely photographs.

I suspect this booklet could have been a handout to visitors to the Castle many decades ago.

Picture: The entrance to the Castle built by Simon van der Stel. It is the main entrance used today.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Themed release

Left just outside the entrance to the Castle in a very visible spot. After taking the release pic attached, I walked away. Looking back some 30 paces later, I saw a man walking towards the Castle with the book, opening the plastic bag. It was picked up in under a minute. Let's hope he journals the catch.

BookCrossing has not taken off in a big way in South Africa yet, but there are a number of dedicated BookCrossers across the country who are actively involved to cultivate the concept. A discussion group for BookCrossers in the wider Cape Town area, BCct, was set up to make it easier to arrange meetups or to spread local news. If you are a BookCrosser from this part of the world or planning a visit, please feel free to join. Visit http://groups.yahoo.com/group/bcct for more information.

Whether you decide to join or not, please make a journal entry — now, and again when you decide to release the book to continue its journey.
