How it works


First edition published by Central News Agency, Johannesburg.

"Frontier Family - a chronicle of a South African farm, its homestead and its people."

Soft cover. Both copies are in fair to good condition. One copy has some neat annotations and marginalia in pen on a few pages, otherwise both copies are in good condition with some age-associated edge wear.

A Dassie Book. No date but 1955. 166pp. Contains a frontis illustration (probably done by Meintjes himself) of Grootzeekoegat, the homestead of the Meintjes family.

One of the author's earliest works. Johannes Meintjes was both a prolific author and renowned SA artist.

Two first edition copies of a very hard-to-find little book and an imperative must-have for the Meintjes collector.
