How it works


Fine first edition. Book is clean and square with olive green cloth binding and bright gilt titles on the spine. The rare dust jacket is in very good condition with only some light chipping at the spine crown.

Hardcover with dust jacket, 319pp.

'Historically accurate, yet with disarming simplicity, this diary fascinates like a romance. It describes primitive life in the Transvaal, and pictures War as seen by women in homesteads and camps - War in naked stupidity, waste and squalor. "Its is a revelation of human nature," wrote Olive Schreiner. "I think it will be of permanent value."
