Blue cloth with silver lettering on the spine. 338 historical and informative pages of text and 12 wonderful pages of historic black and white photographs and illustrations! "The writing of this book was brought about rather by the influence of the authors circumstances than by any aspiration or desire on his part to appear before the public in the character of a writer. During his childhood, which was spent in Natal, one of the chief topics of conversation there, of both the black and the white races, was the Zulus. His mind was filled with thrilling tales of what they had done and were doing, all rendered the more romantic by a surrounding element of haze. In after years, when he chanced to be closely associated with the people and the afi Eairs of their country, he was led by a natural process to inquire into the actual facts. The task was one to which it was necessary to devote a good deal of time and patience. There were many Zulus living who possessed the information which was required, but, scattered as they were over a wide extent of country, there was difficulty, first in learning of and then in meeting them. Eventually, however, the material was got together which was embodied in the first edition. It was hoped, amongst other things, that publication would call forth criticism of a kind which would help in rendering the work more perfect, but this hope was not realised. Those who read the book were disposed rather to regard it as authoritative, and to say kind things about it. The whole responsibility in the matter thus remained with the author, and he has felt it to be his duty, after the lapse of some years, to reprint it in a revised and extended form."
