How it works


In his preface the author describes this collection as "rather a mixed lot - representing some of the recreations, legal and literary, of a colonial judge".

Of particular interest at the time the book was published were "How we went circuit in 'a sort of a war' " and "From the Hague to the Cape: the Peace Conference and the South African War".

Full-bound in red cloth with gilt lettering to the spine, plain endpapers, all edges uncut, vi + 335 pp of text + 4 pp of reviews of the author's previous book.

CONDITION. The boards are lightly rubbed towards the edges. The spine is sunned and the spine-ends are lightly bumped. There is a small crack at the front endpaper, but the binding remains tight. The book is lightly foxed throughout (see images), but remains an attractive copy.
