David Culpin, editor of “Francois Le Vaillant: Travels into the Interior of Africa via the Cape of Good Hope” Volume II, gave a lecture on Le Vaillant at the Academie Francaise in Cape Town on 9 March 2022. The 50 socially-distanced chairs were all filled, some by HiPSA members who had been invited to attend. We sold several copies of the volume.
