Graham Viney has selected twenty-three widely divergent examples to recount the fascinating story of early South African houses which he examines against a background of styles and fashions prevailing at the time, not only in South Africa but elsewhere in the world. In addition to detailed descriptions, the author has provided equally pertinent insights into the attitudes and aspirations of the men who built them, as well as the opinions expressed about them by some of their contemporaries."
288 pages; full colour photographs and period illustrations throughout. This is volume 49 of the Collectors' Edition which is limited to 250 copies. Dedicated personally to Mr and Mrs Oggel by Piet Struik. Signed both by Viney and the photographer Proust.
