How it works


Published in the year following Jonker's death, this book also announced the Ingrid Jonker Prize. (At the time of publication, the fund for this prize had reached a total of R781.50, from more than sixty donations, mainly in the R2 to R10 range. The fund's patrons were N P van Wyk Louw and Uys Krige, while the seven trustees were representatives of the poet's publishers - Human & Rousseau, John Malherbe and Simondium - and the writers Jack Cope, Adele Naude, Hennie Aucamp and Jan Rabie.) Running to 12 pp, Jack Cope's tribute, in English, is the longest. 

The frontispiece is a portrait of Jonker by the photographer Jansje Wissema and this and the 4 other plates, one with 2 photographs, on art paper are all in fine condition. A clean copy with a faint crack on edge of bottom of spine. Inscription of previous owner in front in ink.
