A delightful anthology of poems about the amusing characters and social life in British Africa during the early 1900s, and about African folklore, on which the author was a recognised authority.
Known also as "the Kipling of Rhodesia", Gouldsbury's poetry is in turn lyrical, picturesque, breezy, humorous, tender and beautiful. Henry Cullen Couldsbury entered the service of the British South Africa Company in Southern Rhodesia in 1902, and was transferred to Northern Rhodesia, where he was promoted to Native Commissioner, in 1910.

A scarce and unusual item.
