PREFACE

IT is not without certain misgivings that the first edition of the ANGLO- AFRICAN WHO'S
WHO AND BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH BOOK is offered to a critical public. The field which
it is intended to cover is an enormous one. It includes a continent, and embraces the
representatives of diplomacy, administration, politics, arms, literature, finance and
commerce. It would therefore be not a little surprising if this first edition contained
references to all those who are justly entitled to a place in its pages, and thus met
with the satisfied approval of those who are responsible for its production. But we
may perhaps claim that, incomplete as it is, it contains many records of Anglo- Africans
which are not readily obtainable in any similar work of reference, and it is only necessary
to add that we hope to remedy its sins of omission and commission in future editions.
