The Story of an African Farm

£5.99

Product description

"The 'Story of an African Farm' shows considerable power. Mr Iron has followed no recognised model of romance, but contrives to tell his tale in a series of studies illustrating the wild life of an ostrich farm, and setting before the reader, with striking vigour, the problems which trouble a strong intelligence and an imaginative ambition remote from any possibility of culture. His descriptions are wonderfully graphic, and his pathos is forcible. Mr Iron obviously writes about what he knows with a successful result which is well deserved." Athenaeum

Book pages are in good condition with age related wear and dirt. Page edges are slightly ragged and dirty.
Hardback cover has gold lettering on the cover and spine. There is some wear to the edges, particularly along the spine and at the corners.
