Book Description (Cape Town: Human & Rousseau, 1986) 0798119322, 1986. Vrijstatia series, number 5. Edited by Karel Schoeman. Introduction by Ella Fischer. 8vo; original yellow boards; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 116 + (iii), incl. index; plates. Dustwrapper a little foxed and rubbed, with sunned spine panel; light bump to bottom fore-corners; trace of foxing. Very good condition. 'Maude Bidwell was born in Bloemfontein in 1877 as daughter of an immigrant German father, G. A. Fichardt, and an English speaking mother from the Eastern Province, and grew up in one of the wealthiest and most prominent families in the Free State Republic, which was moreover distinguished by its strong Republican sentiments. In this book she describes the history of the Fichardts in the Free State over a period of almost sixty years, and sets down her own recollections, ending with the Anglo-Boer War and her marriage in 1902. This text has been supplemented with the recollections of her sister, Ella Fischer, together with the autobiographical notes of her husband, Dr C. H. Bidwell, his letters from the front in 1899, and a selection from the correspondence of the Fichardt family during the war. The result is a unique and vivid picture of life in the "Model Republic" and of the English speaking Free Staters who served it with such remarkable loyalty and love.'. Seller Inventory # 9699
