Description: This is a very good copy of the Third Printing of the First English edition of Lord Randolph Churchill's letters from South Africa, first published in the Daily Graphic, observing the diamond operations, gold mining, sports, wildlife and native peoples, with some discussion of South Africa's political and economic conditions. The boards here are darkened and crunched at the upper corners; the contents are fine and unfoxed, with professionally repaired hinges. The book exerted some influence on the young Winston Churchill, who was eight when it was published.
