“The author had resided previously in New Zealand, and draws a comparison between Christchurch and Pietermaritzburg, which is by no means favourable to the latter city. The annoyances and discomforts of colonial life are discussed in a good-humoured and witty manner; the writer was much more contented with her South African servants than is usually the case, and even has a good word to say for the ‘converted native'”. Volume 1670 of the Tauchnitz Editions, printed without the plates that appear in the Macmillan editions. Black pebbled cloth with shelfmark sticker to the spine. Library bookplate to the pastedown. Tissue repair to the free end papers. Good Hardcover
