Not sure if this is known about, but it is apparently a Google Book which you can see many of the pages of online, including (unseen?) modern portrait paintings of some of the participants - Durnford, Bromhead, etc.

Not exact likenesses, but certainly different.

Hi,

Was this book ever published?

I've been unable to find a copy for sale anywhere!

Regards,

Dewi.

There is mention of it published by Talisman Prints and the artist/author apparently does have two other books for sale on amazon (not AZW though).

Might need to contact the publisher or, if possible, the artist himself.

His paintings in the Google Book look okay, incl. one of the incident at Bushman's Pass, but know he also did a painting (not in book?) of Durnford's last stand.

Hi Andrew,

I have not seen this book either, but Worldcat lists this book as having been publshed in 2007 by Talisman Prints in Blackpool. ISBNs supposedly are: 0955269326 and 9780955269325.

It reportedly is 135 pp. long with "artwork by William Watson Race; text by W.W. Race and Y Christie; presented by Talisman Prints."

If you find a copy, please let us know!

Cheers,
Harold
