About this Item

First Edition, INSCRIBED PRESENTATION COPY FROM THE AUTHOR TO SIR GEORGE TAUBMAN GOLDIE, the famous Manx administrator who played a major role in the founding of Nigeria. His role was similar to that of Cecil Rhodes elsewhere in Africa though he lacked Rhodes' thirst for publicity. With outlines and tables and four large folding maps printed in colour. 8vo, original red cloth lettered and decorated on the spine in gilt, the upper cover with gilt rule and decorated with Arabic symbols. xv, 483, 40 ads catalogue pp. A very handsome and bright copy, the textblock unusually clean and appearing as pristine, just a hint of very minor and occasional aging, the cloth especially well preserved and bright with no fading and no real wear. FIRST EDITION INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR TO THE HERO OF THE NATIONAL AFRICAN COMPANY SIR GEORGE TAUBMAN GOLDIE, DATED 1899. "The title given to this book sufficiently indicates its scope. Formerly, in the rampant days of Internationalism, there was a Question in Egypt as to her future destiny. That has now been answered - irrevocably - in the terms of British hegemony. But there remains a Problem, as to the means by which Egypt shall achieve her emancipation from International Control. It is a problem that may be dissociated from the direct issues of the Eastern Question, on which it impinges, because the political future of Egypt is no longer enshrouded in doubt. An inexorable law of History commits her to the protection of the leading maritime Power. The events of the last few years confirm this as the natural solution of the Egyptian Problem. The prospects of the future herald it as the highest destiny for Egypt herself Turkish suzerainty is a myth - a diplomatic fiction. International Control is now an anachronism - a tax upon freedom: blackmail, blood-money." -the author. Bookseller Inventory # 27511
