How it works


A first edition proof copy of Meintjes's biography on the famous Boer War General Louis Botha.

Publisher's green proof wraps. 313pp. Book is in very good condition with minimal edge wear. Proof copies of Meintjes's works are of the utmost rarity, rarer, even, than his book Sebastiaan of which only 100 copies were printed.

Johannes Meintjes was a renowned SA artist as well as a prolific author. He wrote monographs on the work of Maggie Laubser (his first book) and Anton Anreith (SA's first sculptor). He wrote several biographies (President Steyn, President Kruger, General De La Rey, Gideon Scheepers, Olive Schreiner) and was also very productive in the fiction genre of writing.
