First Hand Report with Original Photographs - Mein Tagebuch aus Südwest: Erinnerungen aus dem Feldzuge gegen die Hottentotten. [Diary of the Southwest: Recollections of the Campaign against the Hottentots.]
11 Original Photographs, taken during his stay with the Imperial German Schutztruppe (peacekeeping force) in Gibeon, German Southwest Africa in 1903. The photos measure 8.5 x 10.5 cm and are captioned on the verso. Very good condition. Together with Alverdes Book providing a complete narrative of the uprising. Alverdes (1871-1934) was a paymaster in the German Schutztruppe and participated in the cruel crackdown on the Hottentots in Southwest Africa, then a German Colony. In 1906 Alverdes published his "Diary from South-West (Africa)" in German which is included here. The book is not illustrated which makes these additional photos all the more interesting. The photographs are mostly snapshots taken by and for Alverdes and chronicle the day-to-day life during the uprising: Groups of officers, ambulances, Boer refugees, a ruined farm, a Hottentot Cemetery, Alverdes himself in Gibeon and so forth. The captions on the verso of the photograph provide additional information. Rare and unique. .
