How it works


The uncommon first edition of this title, SABIB Vol. 1, Page 307, which only lists one copy, that being the Mendelssohn copy. Hackett Page 32. A war correspondent's account of the First Canadian Contingent on active service in South Africa. Chapters relate to Cronje's surrender at Paardeberg & the subsequent march on Bloemfontein & Pretoria.

In the original decorated pale green cloth which has slight rubbing, probably very superficial fishmothing. A name has been erased from a faint "return to" inscription on the front free endpaper. Apart from the above, this is a very clean tight copy.
