How it works


Dustcover over biscuit boards, with black lettering to front board and spine. Maps to endpapers. Published on behalf of the Human Sciences Research Council- Pretoria. 1988.

NZASM 100 maps the valiant efforts of the first railway company to establish an extensive railway network in an isolated country in Africa. At the close of the nineteenth century when the Boers of theZuid-Afrikaansche Republiek (ZAR) were still living in a pre- industrial timeframe and had never seen a train, a railway company, the" Nederlandsche Zuid- Afrikaansche Spoorweg Maatschaapij" (NZASM) laid the foundation of a modern transport system. Together with the gold-mining industry in the Eastern Transvaal and on the Witwatersrand the railways inaugurated the industrial revolution in a country managed by an agrarian people.

Maps to endpapers. Half-Title. Portrait. Title. Contents. Foreword. 265 pages text with Roll of Honour. Complete with maps, photographs, data and information.
