Although this Afrikaans book, sometimes written with Christian religious fervour, concentrates on "Afrikaners", it by no means excludes white English-speaking and black leaders from its chosen 400.
This de luxe author-published limited-edition signed and numbered book (copy 51 of 200 copies) is full-bound in green leather, gilt coat of arms to upper panel, gilt design and lettering to the spine, all edges gilt. It has illustrated endpapers and there are many b/w and colour illustrations in the 511 pp of text and index, which have no owner signature or other marks or foxing or other discolouration.
A minor shortcoming in this otherwise excellently produced copy is the slightly lumpy folding of the first few sections; however, this is visible only when the book is open and one looks carefully. A thin line of white Tippex on the front free endpaper (see image) may have covered a name.
The author acknowledges his debt to the Saambou building society for its financial contribution to the production of this edition.
