PEN & PENCIL REMINISCENCES OF A CAMPAIGN IN SOUTH AFRICA.
Lucas (Captain Thomas J.)
Description:
Illustrated with Twenty-one Beautiful Colour-tinted Lithographs. By Captain Thomas J. Lucas, Cape Mounted Rifles.

35 pages of letterpress, hand coloured lithographic frontispiece, additional hand coloured title page and 19 hand coloured plates each with tissue guards, original brownstraight-grained cloth, covers blind stamped and titled and decorated in gilt on the upper cover and spine, all edges gilt, bookplate on the front paste-down endpaper and a corresponding small stamp below the date on the title page. The cloth is split and lifting for forty millimetres along the spine, top corner of the front free endpaper missing, the hinges are splitting and the binding has been strengthened (the original binding was made with gutta-percha – a latex solution derived from the Palaquium tree – which over time dries and cracks. Almost all books bound in this way in the 19th century now need the attention of a bookbinder), the frontispiece and title page are lightly foxed, some foxing on the other plates but this is mainly restricted to the backs of the plates, the hand colouring remains bright, the text pages are generally unaffected. Overall a good well coloured copy.
Details:
Publisher: Day & Son
Publisher Place: London
Date of Publication: No date (1861)
Overall Condition: Good
Size: 4to (290 x 210 mm)

No such luck her indoor's would have my face off.   Shocked  
i acquired most of mine before the bankers went
mental. it's still a lottery out there with re-print's
and print on demand, but its a fact of life that
when people pass, invariably their collection's

I bid on a few books, First eds, but the prices have gone stupid. Its not that long ago Les we were saying the bottom had dropped out of the market, but now?
By the way Ive just got Keith Smiths: Dead was Everything, looks like a rehash of his Studies in the Anglo Zulu wars with a few updates. Looking forward to getting into it on the weekend.

I could never bring myself to pay those kind of prices. The fun for me is winkling out little gems - waiting for one to arrive at the moment. Association copy from the library of an  officer present at Ulundi, Camel Corps at Abu Klea, Guards in Boer War, Brigadier WW1. Will tell you more when it arrives, but any guesses as to identity?

Hi Springy
I was very surprised that the letters went for 20k USD , There is no doubt I would think that the Dalton letters will go for more !
Cheers 90th

PostSubject: Original Photograph of Robert Gordon Wolrige Gordon   Book Auctions EmptySat Jun 07, 2014 7:31 pm

Rusteze, Here's the albumen photograph of Gordon-Gilmour that I mentioned along with his bookplate in the Mac & Shad. Almost blundered on the Mac & Shad and let it pass, when Hatchard's offered it to me for 130 pounds as it mentioned one portrait missing. So I passed. Then I figured out that all copies were like this as the publishers could not find a portrait of one of the officers that was deceased in the campaign. So I rushed an overseas phone call to Hatchards who luckily still had the copy, and so swooped it up. Isandula

It was 900US, approx. R9000.00 and It is the same book I believe. Quaggas in Kalk Bay had it on the open market a few weeks back for R9000.
