6 editions published in 1965 in English and German and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rezension: This book is best regarded as a companion volume to the translator's Wilhelm Heinrich Jmmanuel Bleek, a bio-bibliographical sketch (see review in BSOAS, xxvin, ], 1965, 216). Although there is a biographical introduction which is intended to put the reader in the picture, this introduction leaves the picture very incomplete. On the other hand it contains many of Bleek's letters to the outside world, which are of great interest if seen against a fuller setting. The diaries themselves cover the early years of Bleek's sojourn in South Africa, so admirers of the 'father of Bantu philology' will have to excuse his frequent inadequacies in the rendering of vernacular names and phrases. There are two sets of diaries : the published diaries and letters covering the period June 1855 to April 1856, and the unpublished MS diaries covering the periods 9-20 June, 26 June-9 August, and 17 August to 13 September 1856. Although the actual items discussed are so slight as to be almost trivial in themselves, a good idea of the background gradually emerges, with its beauties and its exasperations, against which the historical figures of the time acted. Now and again a didactic note creeps in, as on p. 64 : 'The truth is that the Boers are not capable, either by education or character, to rule themselves'. A. N. Tucker (1967). Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies, 30, pp 477-477 doi:10.1017/S0041977X00063072
The courage of //kabbo : celebrating the 100th anniversary of the publication of Specimens of Bushman folklore by Janette Deacon( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The year 2011 marked the centenary of the publication of Wilhelm Bleek and Lucy Lloyd's publication, Specimens of Bushman Folklore, a unique and globally important record of the language and poetry of the now-extinct language of the /xam Bushmen. This edited volume celebrates this anniversary. It is named after //kabbo, a prisoner released from the Breakwater Convict Station in the 1870s, who remained in Cape Town far from home and family and sacrificed the freedom of his final years to teach Bleek and Lloyd his language and make his stories known by way of books. The stories in the Bleek and Lloyd archive are now all that remains of the world view of the /xam. Chapters by a range of experts from a wide array of disciplines comment on the past and present treatment of Bushmen and attempts to keep their culture alive. They deal with issues of archival research and publication, with the difficulties of understanding oral literature through writing and with the active curation of archives. And they explore the world view of different groups of Bushmen through rock art, the paintings done for Bleek and Lloyd, their poetry and their language."--Publisher's website
