I showed this piece to the 90th the other week. it was described as a ' trophy '.
i bought it from a well known book seller in RSA. the piece is about three inches
tall and very chunky and heavy like a paper weight. signed on the base, it's in
excellent condition the only sign of wear is on the base.. has anyone else seen
one of these, it would be interesting to find out who manufactured it. xhosa.

Forgive another little foray away from the AZW. I cannot resist an "association" copy and this book on the Waterloo campaign is pretty scarce as it is. Given the owner I must say I was delighted to find it.

Already added years ago now. i'm sure many forum member's are
familiar with ' row '.... but the map's of Stanley Evan's might be of
interest to some. privately printed.. a copy presented to the 13th
Regt, dated 1973, all that was available till the reprint of the narrative
came along.. he really was a talented cartographer.

Nice map. He must have taken the contour lies from the early 1960's survey map. Huge amount of work.

New addition to collecton. Not in bad condition, talking to a book binder in Canterbury, as some of the pages are loose.

£30.00 from ebay.

Hi All,
Managed to pick up a couple of Zulu War books at very good prices recently.

A History of the Royal Regiment of Wales for £5.50.
British Battles on Land & Sea Vol.4 for £6.00. A lot of good sections on the Anglo Zulu wars.
The Rorke's Drift Doctor for £20.00 including delivery.
Very happy
cheers

Finally got my copy of the Red Book, would post a pic but it says file is too big? Also managed to get an Official Narrative 1907 edition, complete with all the maps. From the library of Rainforth Armitage Walker/Anthony Frederick Walker (sorry but I've no idea who they are)?

Well done! The Red Book is nice, but the 1907 Narrative is nicer in my opinion. Rainforth Armitage Walker was something of an expert on Aubrey Beardsley the artist. Does your volume have a bookplate? Walker apparently had a number, but one was by Beardsley himself and is quite valuable in its own right.

Hi Steve,

Sorry I'm not quite sure what you mean by "bookplate" There is, some sort of sticker I suppose on the inside cover, is that what you mean? "Ex Libris Rainforth Armitage Walker" with a date of 1927 also another sticker with the details of Anthony Frederick (his son)?? The only thing that spoils it, is someone has stuck two newspaper cuttings on the inside. One a review of W.H. Clements Glamour & Tragedy of the Zulu War dated 12/9/36 and a small piece on "Zulu etiquette"

Yes, that sounds like a bookplate. Black and white picture with "Ex Libris" and Rainforth Armitage Walker underneath. But it depends which one it is.

Looks like a pilgrim, medieval town in the background, old man in a hooded cloak reading a book. Vertical staff in the ground to one side with a "double" cross. Sandwiched in between Ex Libris and his name. At the very top a dove? holding a branch in its beak.
