Western Provincial versus Transvaal Republican

Battle of the Books – Western Provincial versus Transvaal Republican reviewed by Kathy Munro on the The Heritage Portal.

Western Provincial an album of Paintings and Drawings of the Western Cape, by Desiree Picton-Seymour and R I B Webster,  1952, Maskew Miller, Cape Town, 36 plates, 80 pages. This book was a collaborative effort by the artist (Picton-Seymour) and the author (Webster). The charm of this slender volume is that it captures in tipped in plates and scraper board drawings some of the architecture of the Western Cape .  It is an artistic and romantic gem.
