Fitzpatrick, James Percy
 
"The Outspan: Tales of South Africa"
 
London, William Heineman, 1897.
 
First Edition. Original dark salmon pictorial cloth. 19,5 x 14 cm. Collation complete - 231 pages. Text in English.
 
Fitzpatrick's scarce first work of fiction. Sir Percy FitzPatrick's 'The Outspan' is an outstanding example of the kind of colonial fiction occasioned by the presence of the motley band of expatriate adventurers who flocked to the South African diamond and goldfields in the last two decades of the 19th century. The title story employs a fictional narrator and evokes the fireside ethos of the oral tale. Sought after copy.
