Frontispiece. Original fine-ribbed green cloth, lettered in gilt. Pages untrimmed. A little speckled on board edges, corners and spine tips rubbed, otherwise good. A political and allegorical novel, written against British Imperial policy in southern Africa. The grim frontispiece (a photograph of three dead Africans hanging from a tree, watched by a group of complacent Europeans) caused considerable controversy and was suppressed. 24 pp catalogue date 1897 bound in at end.
