Story Of An African Farm OLIVE SCHREINER feminist 2nd Edition 1883

Olive Schreiner, the first white South African novelist of any notoriety achieved international fame with this wonderful book, STORY OF AN AFRICAN FARM, written under a pseudoname Ralph Irons. It was published by The MERSHON COMPANY, New York. The cover is unusual in that the title is not on the front. There's a dedication "TO MY FRIEND MRS. JOHN BROWN OF BURNLEY, THE LITTLE FIRSTLING OF MY PEN IS LOVINGLY INSCRIBED RALPH IRON. South Kensington, London, June 1883. The second page has a quote from ALEXIS DE TOCQUEVILLE, along with a glossary on the third page, and last, a "PREFACE OF THE SECOND EDITION. R.IRON June, 1883."

It measures 6" by 4 1/8" by 15/16" with 391 pages. Green with red embellishment, and embossed with gold leaf on the cover edge, it is in excellent condition, showing minor wear with 2 corners bent. The first page looks to have been ripped out (it would have been blank). The back inside cover shows a few tiny stress marks, with all pages very slight yellowing.
