Lot #13/10 Auf und ab in Süd-Afrika: Erlebnisse eines Deutschen über See by Dietrich E. Braun [pseudonym of Franz Heinr. Behncke]. An account of some years spent in South Africa doing various jobs (I believe he came out from Europe as an actor, with stage name Dietrich E. Braun). He & his wife settled in Lydenburg in 1897 & were given a house (made from prefabricated Swedish timber as a wedding present, by his father who lived in Sweden). He spent some time with the German Volunteers fighting with the Boers during the Anglo-Boer War. The book has been inscribed from the “Verfasser Franz Heinz Behncke, Lydenburg, 11 März, 1906.” SABIB, 1/163. Berlin, F. Fontane & Co., 1903. First edition. 8vo. Cloth. Pp. (v),313,(1) + adverts., black / white photo-plates, portraits. Spine rubbed & title a bit dull, some text a bit affected by damp (some rippling), but not too bad. Good. Reserve price: R850.00 bids welcome
