Attractive orig. pictorial cloth, little worn but VG & interesting copy with tipped-in notice of unidentified origin, but probably the unit's newsletter, in which the author writes to the Editor: "Sir, I have just learned with the greatest regret that in the chapter... dealing with the battle of Nooitgedacht, I have indavertently done a grave injustice to Cpl. Bonthrone, late of the 20th Company. It is stated in the account of the battle that Bonthrone held up his hands in a token of surrender. This I now find was not the case. The truth of the matter is that Bonthrone was binding the wounds of a comrade when he was shot at close range by the Boers... J. Percy Sturrock, 43 Nethergate, Dundee, 1st July, 1903." At the foot of this clipping is a note that "Subscribers are requested to cut out pages 97 and 98 from this volume & subsititute the correct pages sent herewith." The replacement pages have not been subsituted in this copy, are not present, but the matter requiring correction is covered in the tipped-in clipping. We have never seen a copy with this clipping and/or the corrrected pages in place & Hackett does not appear to have been aware of this correction. Rare. See illustration on our website.   £245
