BAXTER, T. W., AND R. W. S. TURNER - Rhodesian Epic

(Cape Town: Howard Timmins, 1966). . 4to; original red rexine, lettered in gilt on spine; pictorial dustwrapper; pictorial endpapers; pp. (viii) + 239, incl. index; profusely illustrated with contemporary photographs, etchings, facsimiles, etc. Very good dustwrapper with trace of foxing to reverse side; earlier owner's name on front pastedown and gift inscription to front free endpaper verso; old tape marks to rear free endpaper; some foxing to edges and outermost leaves; front endpaper lifting somewhat at gutter. Good to very good condition. "Two prominent historians have spent years on obtaining the material for this history of Rhodesia, a history that has nothing to do with U.D.I. as apart from the last chapter it virtually ends in the 1920's. Apart from being an ideal gift book it will interest everyone interested in the early days of the country. All the material is authentic and the adventures experienced - and so well described - will surely keep the reader entranced." - Dustwrapper blurb. "Rhodesian Epic is a collection of pictures that tells the story of Rhodesia from the earliest times down to the granting of self-government in 1923. The aim has been to convey visually a series of events that are normally described only in words; with this end in view the text has been kept to a minimum. Pictures, of course, cannot reflect the Rhodesian story in its entirety but they do capture much of the drama and splendid richness of the country's past." - From the Preface.
