Anglo Boer War Book: No Charge for Delivery by CWL de Souza with Brenda Lighton as illustrator

Books of Africa, Cape Town, 1969. First Edition.

Hardback with Dustcover.

Book Condition: Very Good with lovely pictorial cover plus dust jacket in fine condition.

No Charge For Delivery is one of the most unusual books ever published. Its origin was an old, battered trunk stored unopened in a garage for many years. Within lay a veritable treasure trove of Africana, a collection of secret and highly confidential telegrams sent during the stormy years of the Anglo-Boer War and retained by the man who was then Secretary for War in Pretoria [the author's father Mr Louis de Souza].

His son has now released this collection, annotated and where necessary translated from the High Dutch.

Included are unique communications of such personages as Winston Churchill, Smuts, Kruger, Baden-Powell, Danie Theron, Steyn and Botha. Many of the messages involved controversial material. Some were sent in moments of fury, some in humour or jubilation, and others at times of deep sorrow.

All give us a clearer insight and better understanding of the individuals and groups involved. It is impossible for any reader not to be totally fascinated by these most revealing glimpses of men and their thoughts.
