Title: Rhodes. A New Biography Based, For the First Time, On Unrestricted Use of the Rhodes Papers
Description: London England, Hodder and Stoughton, 1963. 2nd Impression, Binding: Cloth, Very Good/Good. 8vo - over 7" - 9" Tall Octavo Hardback Hardback. Rhodes. Previous owners name written very small and neatly to inside cover. Shelf wear to edges of D/J. Price clipped to D/J. Amongst the fabulous characters of the last 100 years, Cecil Rhodes must surely stand out pre-eminent. Surrounded in his own lifetime by dedicated admirers with an outer circle of bitter enemies, his character and achievements have been the subject of continual and often rancorous debate since his death. J. G. Lockhart, whose contribution is mainly in the earlier chapters, is admirably complemented by C. M. Woodhouse: hitherto unused material is here published for the first time, and if the resulting picture not only of Rhodes himself but of the turbulent times in which he lives is not substantially different as a result of their exhaustive and admiably presented enquiries, the reader will nonethless feel that at last something like justice has been done to this son of a Vicar of Bishop's Stortford who sought to colour a whole continent red. Illustrated. 511 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions, Reference books ,and all types of Academic Literature.).
