How it works


Hardcover, 185x140mm. Some Opinions of the Press on the First Edition + Report on the Lands Commission xxxii, frontispiece of the author and Mrs S.T. Plaatje. 352 pages. Name in ink and nameplate of previous owner in front.

The second edition with Plaatje's critical analysis of the Report of the Lands Commission, included at the beginning of the book. He writes, 'During the past two years while the Empire was involved in one of the mightiest struggles that ever shook the foundations of the earth, South Africa was wasting time and money in a useless and unprecedented attempt at territorial segregation between white and black. Judging by the recently published Report of the Land Commission, however, she failed ignominiously in the task.'
