How it works


De Luxe edition limited to 100 copies of which this is no. 56. It contains a signed & dated etching by the author with tissue guard loosely tucked in.

White boards with gilt titles to the spine. 280pp. Illustrations in profusion.

Book is clean and square. Jacket is in very good condition with some mild age-associated wear at the spine ends and bottom front corner.

Ullmann's sculpture "The Playmakers", illustrated on the front of the dust jacket, is a focal point of Johannesburg's Civic Theatre. The Ernest Ullmann Park in Morningside, Sandton was named after him.

"In this highly personal account of an eventful life, the artist Ernest Ullmann tells with rare candour of his aspirations and experiences." "To a land starved of artistic expression, he brought fresh and stimulating talent. Today, in the main centres, his statuary alone is known to millions."
