Octavo; gilt-decorated green cloth heavily flecked, worn and stained; insect damage and dampstains to the margins of several leaves; scattered foxing; folding maps torn; early ownership signature in pencil; a decent copy under the circumstances.

Lieutenant Samuel Albert White served with the 4th South Australian Imperial Bushmen, reaching the Transvaal around August 1900. The Australians saw action in the vicinity of Rustenburg in early November, according to a lengthy contemporary account of the service of the 'Fighting Fourth' published in the Adelaide newspaper, 'The Register', on Saturday 27 July 1901. Samuel Albert White (1870-1954), ornithologist and conservationist: 'During the South African War he had two tours of duty and was temporarily promoted captain, a title he used thereafter' (Australian Dictionary of Biography).
