In June 1890, the South Atlantic (African) Land and Exploration Company advertised its prospectus in a number of English papers including the Brighton Gazette. I am endeavouring to find out as much as I can about the fate of this company, but I can find very little.
The Truth magazine, for July 3 1890, reports on the prospectus sceptically.
"I am really at a loss to understand what sort of person (assuming him to be of sane mind) would pay £ 125,000 for the privilege to expend £ 25,000in exploring and prospecting the territories of Hendricks, chief of the Veldschoendragers."
But that's about it. Matters are made more difficult by the number of companies of similar name and avowed aim that existed in this period.
Where can I research this further?
