Description:
London: George Newnes, 1900. First edition (144 pp.). Folio (35cm x 26cm) in scarlet cloth, gilt titles and decoration; seventy-one full-page colour portraits from photographs of British military personalities at the time of the second Boer War. Each military figure’s career is sketched in a single page of patriotic text which accompanies his portrait. Included among the military pin-ups is Robert Baden-Powell, ‘Defender of Mafeking’ (pictured in the uniform of a Colonel of Irregular Horse, perhaps a prototype for the Boy Scouts); Kitchener of Khartoum stares blankly and imperiously from under a fez, rehearsing his pose for the famous world war poster; and a general appears under whom no one (or maybe everyone) would gladly serve: Major-General Sir Bindon Blood. A show-piece for medals, mustaches, ceremonial swords, and plumed hats, it is not a perfect copy, however. The scarlet cloth is blotched and discoloured and several of the portraits are creased, though none are torn. From… Read more
