How it works


A complete set of the seventeen issues of The Pretoria Friend published between 26th July and 14th July 1900. Each issue comprised four pages, folio (410 x 260 mm), printed on good quality paper.

Contents include military government notices, proclamations, advertisements and items of news. Publication commenced on Tuesday, 26th June 1900 (the British entered Pretoria on 5th June) and ceased after the issue of Saturday, 14th July 1900.'
