London: Eyre and Spottiswood, 1900. First edition (pp.38) with eighteen full-page comic illustrations of the siege of Ladysmith. Long folio (23.5 cm) in green cloth and pictorial paper covers, boards with beveled edges. Here are eighteen full-page colour vignettes, each in one way or another thumbing a nose at those pesky Boers, by Captain Dixon of the 16th Lancers, A. D. C. to General Sir George White, VC, and a gifted caricaturist. That fellow Churchill is nowhere to be seen. Paper covers chipped, worn at the edges, light stains, one plate (pictured) with repaired tear in one cornger. Every plate is bright and colourful.
