Signature by Author on title page, and inscribed to Rhodes University fellow-academics on ffep thus. "To Terence & Margot - with my best wishes. Andre. Dec 74".

Blue cloth boards. 400pp.

Top edge foxed, some spine-lean, o/w G+ condition in matching d/w (spine faded. no major loss).

Author's second novel. First published as "Kennis van die Aand" and later translated by the Author, this novel was immediately banned in SA. The English translation was published overseas, so such a copy to a fellow academic at Rhodes (Terence Beard, who was subjected to banning and house arrest for activities deemed unacceptable to the apartheid regime) would be rare.
