(Mendelssohn II, p. 370) \'An interesting synopsis of the Anglo-Boer Dispute and the subsequent South African War. The four preliminary chapters deal with \"what preceded the Ultimatum,\" and the history of the political and military conflict is brought down to the signing of the Peace at Vereeniging. The volume is well printed and illustrated, and there is a Preface from the pen of W. F. Andriessen.\' - Mendelssohn.
