THE FIRST BOER WAR
Hunter Books
"SN30659" Jonathan Cape, London 1972, first edition, 330 pages, illustrated with historic photographs , drawings and map, pictorial endpapers. Having trekked north in appalling conditions after the British abolition of slavery, the fiercely independent Boers rose in revolt against inept taxation by the British, who annexed the Tranvaal to further their aspiration for a Federation of South African States. Rated by the number of combatants involved, the fighting at Majuba Hill in 1881 was a mere skirmish. Yet few battles have had a more immediate or far-reaching effect. The Boers not only won back the Transvaal from the British and made it the center of intensified nationalist feeling, but altered the whole course of South African history. Unclipped dust jacket and book are Very Fine.  ID#: 3577
