About This Item

Van Riebeeck Society (VRS). Second Series No.15. Cape Town 1984.. No inscriptions, 4 square corners. one minor mark to front board, faint spotting to end-papers else an above average clean copy, VG+ condition.. Chocolate cloth boards. 152pp. illustrated b/w plates. Edmund Garrett (1865-1907) was a member of the family which produced such leading feminists as Dr Elizabeth Garrett Anderson and Millicent Garrett Fawcett. In 1895 he was appointed editor of the Cape Times and remained there during the crucial period of the Jameson Raid and the lead-up to the South African War. A staunch imperialist he formed close relationships with Sir Alfred Milner, Governor of the Cape, and with Dr Jane Waterston. His letters to his cousins give an intimate and lively account of life in Cape Town until 1899, when he was forced to return to England on account of his health.
