How it works


239 pages, colour title page, illustrated throughout with colour and black & white photographs, brown cloth, the dust jacket has been covered with clear adhesive plastic.

'The Boer War was responsible for the most amazing variety of ornaments, keepsakes and commemorative pieces ranging from umbrella stands to postage stamps, manufactured in a host of different countries. Apart from South Africa and Britain they mainly came from France, Germany, Holland, U.S.A., Australia, and Canada and included artefacts made by prisoners-of-war scattered as far and wide as Ceylon, Bermuda and St. Helena. Propaganda played a large part in design and it is usually not difficult to define where the sympathies of the country in which they were made lay. Containing 430 illustrations, including 165 in colour, this book is an invaluable guide to the very collectable subject.' Editor's note.
