Izaci namaqhalo esiXhosa is one of the Xhosa classics. Mesatywa's work on proverbs and idioms, which dates back to the 1950's provided me with a wonderful reference for my Masters research on Xhosa proverbial names. This work is neatly classified and each proverb is explained in detail including its usage. It is a wonderful resource for the scholars of isiXhosa proverbs, idioms and culture in general.
