Songs of the Veld and other poems in support of the Boers in the Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902) was first published by New Age Press in England in 1902. The whole consignment of these protest poems, destined for South Africa, was confiscated and destroyed by the Cape authorities of that time. The well-known cultural historian and journalist, Marthinus van Bart, discovered a copy of this book in the Leyds Collection in the Stellenbosch University library. The necessary copyrights were obtained and the result was this richly illustrated facsimile, with an extensive introduction by Marthinus van Bart. The original book cover was reproduced. Any collector of Africana should appreciate this presentation.
