Titre : THE TRANSVAAL FROM WITHIN
Éditeur : William Heinemann
Etat du livre : Fine copy.
Edition : 1899 London, 452pp.
1899 London, 452pp. Fine copy. The author, a resident of the Transvaal, wrote a perspective of the Jameson Raid (1895-6) that was led by Doctor Leander Starr Jameson and orchestrated by Cecil Rhodes with the purpose of overthrowing the Transvaal government of Paul Kruger. It has all the aspects and events that led up to the raid, the actual battle itself and the aftermath. Publication of this work was prevented by Paul Kruger for a period of three years. It is particularly interesting in that it gives a perspective of the Jameson Raid from a point of view of a South African of English decent or an Uitlander. Very detailed with copies of much of the correspondence between the power players in South Africa and London that later caused such a ruckus and were used by Rhodes to blackmail the British Government into silence.
