Cape Colony, Eastern Province & Natal, South Africa: J.C.Juta & Co. Impey, Walton, & Co. P. Davis & Sons, 1892. Irving Montagu. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Illustrated by Irving Montagu, this volume is in near-fine condition. The publisher's original red cloth binding is clean, bright, and square with no fading, sharp corners, and trivial wear confined to extremities. The contents are extremely clean, crisp, and bright with no spotting, including a full-page frontispiece illustration and an illustrated title page. The endpapers have been professionally replaced. "Most of the inhabitants of Kimberley and Johannesburg in the late "eighties" knew something of the well-known pugilist, Couper, the author of this novel, who did much to advance the science of athletics in South Africa, and some of his best-known fights are described in this volume. He amassed and later lost a fortune, committing suicide in a fit of depression at Johannesburg. The tale is a hardly exaggerated picture of the seamy side of Kimberly life before the amalgamation of the diamond mines." Mendelssohn I: p.386. Item #003923
