African Odyssey.


It is hoped that one day a far abler pen will write of the early days in Matabeleland and the work of the Matabele Pioneer Force.This book has not been illustrated for a reason which I hope will appeal to all who read it.We simply did not carry commeras in those days,and though there were men with the column who would have tackled anything,i cannot imagine one having enough nerve to photograph a charging impi or trying to take a snap of King Lobengula.

In stock


H/b in the original boards clean but with the edges browned,in a rather grubby chipped and worn illustrated d/w.Size 9×6 pp page maps.Hinges strong.binding good to firm.Owing to the soft quality of the paper there is a considerable amount of foxing her and there throughout the book,with staining to the prelims and end-papers,Otherwise a nice internally clean volume for its 68 year life.
