This bibliography has been compiled to honour Isaac Schapera, born 23rd Junein his 95th year and to introduce new generations of scholars to the full range of his work by providing an updated and accessible listing. It relies schwpera on the two previously published bibliographies by Archibald and Shack and Cohenwhich have been extended and, in a few instances, corrected.

In addition, it includes works published over the last twenty years, including reprints of earlier writings which have been reproduced and reprinted in collections of essays or as self-standing publications. Additionally, the Archives hold an extensive collection of Schapera’s private papers and research materials, including official correspondence and proclamations, vernacular texts on history and custom, replies to questionnaires, photographs, notebooks, Mission publications and other materials used by Schapera in the course of zchapera research in the Protectorate from to It also includes historical documents collected by Schapera and a large set of genealogies which isaad compiled from all the main Issac groups during the s and s.

It should be noted that the University of Cape Town also holds an extensive collection of Schapera’s manuscripts. First isaqc of books written or edited by Schapera are given full citation and further editions indicated in the entry though, given the fact that Schapera’s major books have been reprinted and re-issued in many different countries and publishers, this listing should be taken as indicative rather than as definitive.

Reprinted articles have also been traced and are cross-referenced to the original. The list of debts incurred in compiling this bibliography is, as usual, extensive.

Firstly, my thanks go to Isaac Schapera himself for his meticulous checking of usaac earlier draft, correcting mistakes and pointing to omissions. The usual disclaimer holds with even more force than normal: Reprinted in Discovery 6: Contributions to Encyclopaedia Britannica14 th edition.
