Halcyon Days in Africa, Saint-Mandé, Wilfred

Eric Partridge Ltd at the Scholartis Press, London 1934 First Edition Hardcover Good No Jacket Hardcover 
340 pages (complete). A relaxed copy. The author's note to his book is hard to beat: "This novel depicts incidentally the evils wrought in South Africa by a stupid, short-sighted, malevolent nationalism that brought the country to the verge of bankruptcy and civil war. After a reign of nine years (1924-1933), the Nationalist Government agreed to a Coalition rather than face inevitable defeat at the polls. Such a step heralded, no doubt, the dawn of a brighter day for that distracted country." Plus ça change .... The boards have wear all about. They have scuffing, handling marks. They are steady, sturdy. The contents have flurries of foxing throughout. Nonetheless, the pages are comfortable, alert, clean, clear, competent, assured. fk
