Lot #32/26 With Botha in the field by Moore Ritchie. This is an interesting book on the 1914 Rebellion & one of the first accounts of the First World War in South West Africa. Particularly interesting because it was written by a foreigner and dealt with what is usually treated as a domestic issue. Also of interest is the fact that the photo–plate opposite pg. 8, showing the eight Rebel leaders, is present. This plate is usually omitted for legal reasons. The plate is present, but has been trimmed & repaired & is loosely inserted. London, Longmans, Green & Co., 1915. First edition. 8vo. Hardcover (cloth spine-backed boards with photo of Botha laid down on front cover). Pp. xii,68, photo-plates, portraits, maps. Covers slightly rubbed, text faintly browned. Good+ Reserve price: R780.00 bids welcome
