William Mansell was successor to the famed James Hayday. Large armorial bookplate of Charles Preston Crewe to the front pastedown. Born in London, Crewe travelled to South Africa in 1878 and served in the Cape Mounted Riflemen, participating in the Ninth Frontier War and the Basuto War of 1880. Subsequently worked for the Kaffrarian Colonial Bank and as a manager of the Kleinfontein Mine on the Witwatersrand. During the Anglo-Boer War, he raised and trained a volunteer corps in the Eastern Province and was later promoted to colonel in charge of a mobile column of the Western Cape. Crewe became Member of Parliament for Aliwal North in 1902 and acted as Colonial Secretary and later as Minister of Agriculture. He held the office of Member of the Legislative Assembly, Union of South Africa, for East London between 1910 and 1919. He fought in the campaign in German East Africa during the First World War.
