New York: Harper & Brothers, 1900. First Edition. Hardcover. A Very Good + copy of the first American Edition, First Printing of "Briton and Boer: Both Sides of the South African Question", this being the first edition in book form (having been taken from its first appearance The American Review). This is a very good copy in bright decorated cloth, in the a QUITE RARE ORIGINAL DUST JACKET in fair or better condition with loss, but nevertheless PERHAPS THE ONLY EXAMPLE OF THE JACKET EXISTENCE ON THE FIRST EDITION. [As noted above, the RARE JACKET remains in only Fair condition: The front panel has separated from the spine, a large section is missing from the front panel and a separate on from the rear panel. The jacket also has general wear and tear. The book (which remains in nice condition, shows only mild wear and some soiling, as well as a tear to the its left edge -- and so should be opened with care) provided the basis for the 1909 silent film "Briton and Boer". Per Wikipedia: "The film is set at the outset of the Boer War, beginning at the farm of Jobe De Larey, a Boer, and his family. His oldest daughter Gretchen and falls in love with Englishman Allen Hornby, superintendent of the mines, while attending an English school at Kimberly. Allen asks Jobe for consent to marry Gretchen and he refuses.
Gretchen overhears Jobe and Piet Cronje planning for war and intentions to seize the mines. She then sees Hans, a young Boer whom Jobe wanted her to marry, receive a message to seize the mines and capture Allen. Gretchen steals the message and Han's horse and rides to Kimberley to warn Allen. Gretchen is pursued after the message and horse are found missing, where at the bottom of the mine she refuses to leave and stays with Allen." Copies in a condition as nice as is the copy are rather uncommon and those in the dust jacket in any condition are, in our experience, RARE INDEED.
NOTE per Google: The war began on October 11 1899, following a Boer ultimatum that the British should cease building up their forces in the region. The Boers had refused to grant political rights to non-Boer settlers, known as Uitlanders, most of whom were British, or to grant civil rights to Africans. Very good + / Fair. Item #3834
