How it works


A facsimile reprint of the 1885 edition, limited to 1000 copies published by Struik in 1972.

Book is clean and square. Jacket is faded on the spine but otherwise very good.

'It is admitted that the accounts given, as well as "the opinions expressed, are mainly based upon official documents." The authoress describes the contest as "a most unnecessary war," and states that "too great eagerness to carry out a federation scheme defeated its own object, leading as it did to a too hasty annexation of the Transvaal - the primary cause of the Zulu War, and bringing in its train the Boer Rebellion." '
