Personal Adventure in South Africa
London: James Blackwood
A missionary's account of the Kaffir war of 1850-2. [The Reverend] Brown was stationed at Igqibira, a small missionary settlement which had been partially destroyed in a previous Kaffir outbreak. Although hostilities broke out almost at the outset of his residence at this place, he remained there for a considerable period, but eventually the station was destroyed, the author escaping to Chumie.Sidney Mendelssohn, South African Bibliography, volume 1, pages 198/9,
Below, two photos of my copy of the scarce first edition of PERSONAL ADVENTURE IN SOUTH AFRICA
I believe my copy is a later issue since the front board has blind-stamping instead of gilt stamping
The first edition has 6 illustrations on plates
Another copy of the first edition (not in my collection), but with gilt stamping to the front board, and all page edges gilded; leading me to believe that the variant below is the first issue. It certainly is the preferable issue, due to its higher-quality characteristics.
