Mendelssohn (Sidney) South African Bibliography volume 1, page 636: volume 1, page 386/7: Most of the inhabitants of Kimberley and Johannesburg in the latter 'eighties' knew something of the well-known pugilist Couper, the author of this novel... some of his best known fights are described in this volume...
