HENTY, G.A. (author). W. RAINEY (illustrator). With Buller In Natal, or, a born leader. London; Blackie & Son Limited. [1903].

Thick 8vo.; publisher's navy blue cloth over bevelled boards, pictorially blocked in green, brown and black to spine and upper cover, lettered gilt, all edges olivine, endpapers grey; pp. [iv], 5-384 + 32, publisher's catalogue; with 10 plates printed in half-tones by W. Rainey and a map of South Africa; a very good sound clean copy with bruising to spine ends with a couple of tiny closed nicks to tail and slight blistering along upper joint, small wear to forecorner tips; internally fresh and crisp with neat hinges and just a few minor internal marks.
Early edition, first published in 1901. A fictional account of the contemporary military campaign led by General Buller in Natal in 1899 on the outbreak of the Second Boer War, although the focus of attention here is on a small band of young men from Johannesburg rather than on the British troops.
