How it works


Exceedingly rare paperback booklet on the Boer War by an Australian and published in Australia in 1900. Small 8vo. 105pp. Frontispiece portrait of Kitchener, map, 7 plates in the original pictorial paper wraps. 

There is a pale signature on the title page. Some very light staining of the wrappers with minute wear at the extremes of the spine, but a remarkable near fine copy of this fragile item which is not in SABIB!
