How it works


114 pages, black cloth rubbed along the edges, titled gilt on upper cover, corners bumped, working loose at the hinges, but holding on to the netting.

Author's name is only mentioned on the cover.

Extracted from page 9: 'The two great evils of political life in South Africa, I am bold to say are:- The De Beers and that gigantic concession, the Chartered Company. Those two organisations have done more to create ill-will between the races in South Africa than all other causes put together.'

3 copies listed in A South African Bibliography volume 4 page 84.
