Historical Publications Southern Africa (HIPSA)

Historical Publications Southern Africa (formerly the Van Riebeeck Society) was founded in 1918 with the purpose of making primary sources available in a readable and enjoyable form to anyone interested in southern African history.

Since then a volume has been published every year, with very rare exceptions. The Society depends for its continued existence on its members, whose subscriptions finance the publications, and its editors who select and meticulously edit its volumes. Society publications have consequently achieved a high academic standard and out-of-print volumes have become valuable Africana.
