Folio; original red rexine; spine gilt; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; unpaginated; lavishly illustrated with colour and monochrome photographs. Dustwrapper edges very slightly curled; a little foxing to prelims. Very good condition. "There have been many attempts to capture in words and pictures the totality of South Africa. But, up to today, all the attempts have been by individuals, who could not hope to succeed, for no single person can ever accurately portray all the beauty, the richness, the diverse social structure, the controversy that comprises this Land in the Sun. This book does the impossible. It takes one ordinary day, Wednesday 26th May, 1982, and through the lenses of thousands of photographers, it brings you South Africa, as seen by South Africans." .

"Southern Africa is a land of the strange, the mysterious and the unexplained - there are enigmatic tales of gold in ancient ruins, ghostly sightings, curious artefacts from the distant past, evidence of life that defies history and, of course, unsolved murders. Beyond Belief is a vivid collection of some of these fascinating stories. The authors have researched their subjects, sharing facts with us, but leaving us to ponder tales of the unexplained, the contradictory and the unsolved. Many attempts have been made to lay legend to rest, to resolve persistent rumours, and to provide us with facts instead of fantasy, but most have failed.… Read More

'Hackwriter, satirist, comic poet, Rowlandson's collaborator, Editor of The Times when not in prison for debt, raconteur, life-long enigma: his adventures and misadventures.' 'Thousands of nineteenth-century readers knew the Tours of Doctor Syntax, loved the old-fashioned hero and the aquatints by Rowlandson illustrating the tours, and never heard of the author, William Combe. This was exactly as Combe intended; for half a century of authorship, he never signed a single work. He preferred to be known as a gentleman of leisure, a literary dilettante, even when busily turning out book after book from his quarters in debtors' prison.' .
