This year’s volume, Francois Le Vaillant: Travels into the interior of Africa via the Cape of Good Hope Vol II, was launched for a second time at the Plettenberg Bay History Festival held on 25/26 February 2022. The editor, Professor David Culpin, gave a lecture on Le Vaillant during this occasion. The photo below shows Culpin talking at the launch, appropriately held at a French bakery in the town. The second photo shows a group of the Festival organisers with Culpin, Howard Phillips and the mayor of Plettenberg Bay (whom we signed up as a member), Councillor Dave Swart, standing next to Professor Phillips.
