OLD CAPE COLONY A CHRONICLE OF HER MEN AND HOUSES FROM 1652 TO 1806
by [Sassoon, Siegfried]: Trotter, Mrs. A[lys] F[ane]
London: Selwyn & Blount, 1903. Cloth and boards, paper spine label. Frontis and illustrations. Spine label worn, foxing at edges and endsheets, but a good copy. From the library of Siegfried Sassoon, inscribed to him by the author, and with the posthumous library dispersal label. Trotter's son, Nigel, was KIA near Béthune in October 1914, and she published two volumes of verse containing war poems. Dublin-born, Trotter and her husband lived in the Cape Colony 1896- 9, an experience from whence this historical account was derived. OCLC reports copies under Constable's imprint as well, and as those copies feature a more substantial decorated binding; this may be a remainder issue or reprint, although the latter is not evidenced in the book itself.
