About This Item

(Cape Town: Howard Timmins, 1975) 0869781030. 8vo; original orange boards, lettered in white on spine; pictorial dustwrapper, housed in removable protector; pp. 69; contemporary photograph; line drawings. Dustwrapper a bit rubbed and edgeworn; a little foxing to endpapers and edges, occasional fox spot elsewhere. Very good condition. "Mrs Ralls, a 90 year old lady who remembers Paul Kruger and Jameson's arrival in Johannesburg, has written a book that captures the flavour and zest of early Johannesburg in the way that only a simple unadorned account can do. The book was originally printed privately for her family but it evoked so much praise that it has been decided to offer it to a wider market." .
