How it works


Published by (London: Cassell, 1932). 1st edition. Very good blue cloth covers, gilt titles. Top stain. Internally very good with some rashes of foxing especially to the title page and page edges. Frontis. Black and white plates.

"Sir Percy FitzPatrick lived through the great divide in South African history when diamonds and gold changed the face of the country. Active in mining, politics, business and agriculture, he moved in the company of giants, as friend and confidant to men such as Jameson, Beit, Milner, Rhodes, Botha and Smuts. His enormous energy and enthusiasm and his renowned skill as a raconteur make these personal reminiscences, with their lively anecdotes and vivid reconstructions of characters and events, a fascinating account of a turbulent and critical period in South African history.".
