Fitzpatrick, Percy
Jock of the Bushveld.
Longmans, Green and Company, London, 1913. Early printing of this classic work. Octavo, original green cloth, gilt titles and tooling to the spine and front panel, illustrated throughout. Boldly signed by Percy Fitzpatrick on the title page. In near fine condition with light shelfwear to the extremities. Illustrated by E. Caldwell. Jock of the Bushveld was first published in 1907 when it became an instant best seller and a classic. Since then it has never been out of print and it has been the subject for a South African film. The author, Percy Fitzpatrick later recounted these adventures as bedtime stories to his four children. Rudyard Kipling, a good friend of Fitzpatrick, also took part in these story-telling evenings and eventually persuaded him to collect these tales in book form.
