265p. Maps to endpapers. Contains Roll of Honour. Complete with maps, photographs, data and information. Slight foxing to prelims. '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 the Zuid-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 Maatschappij" (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.'
