About This Item

(Durban: Monty Wilson, [1942]). 180 x 132 mm; side-stitched pictorial card wrappers; pp. (iv) + 59 + (i); illustrations. Wrappers browned and foxed; earlier owner's name to upper cover, which is chipped at top fore-corner; occasional fox spot. Good condition. These sketches, which first appeared in the pages of Durban's "Daily Tribune" and "Daily News", would probably be considered in poor taste by a modern readership. "It is some years since I first met the creator of the Botshongweni family who have been described as the most famous residents in South Africa since Chaka. There, I think, the similarity ends, for the Botshongwenis could hurt no one. Monty Wilson's love of detail and his treatment of the subject that is nearest his heart has endeared him to a great many people in South Africa as well as overseas. They recognise from his drawings, just as we, who are more fortunate in knowing him personally can recognise, a character that still holds a large share of boyish humour combined with a more mature kindliness." - From the Foreword .
