How it works


The very scarce first (and only) edition of this booklet in the original Battiss designed wraps containing 10 drawings made by Battiss on site at the Zwartklop military airbase. The Homecoming refers to the soldiers return to S.Africa from the war. It is uncertain how many copies were published but almost certainly relatively few. Each copy has Foreword by Battiss personally signed by him with his initials. This is a near fine unmarked copy. Jack Ginsberg Bibliography B06.

It would appear that there has not been another copy of this book sold on this auction site.
