How it works


As well as the standard Einglish and Afrikaans editions of this book, which were limited to a total of 2000 copies, the printers and binders, Penrose Press, produced 50 Remarque copies (30 English and 20 Afrikaans) in special editions for the Reserve Bank as publishers. The special edition certificate is inserted at the front of this unnumbered copy, which was kept by Penrose as a reference copy. When the Penrose business closed, its collection of special copies was shared among the company's senior executives. This copy went to the late Ron Deacon, several items from whose collection are on offer in this auction.

Maroon calf-board slipcase, matching calf-board covers, gilt to upper panel and spine, heavy plain cerise endpapers, top page-edges gilt, copy certificate, 160 pp of text, captioned colour illustrations, including portraits the five Governors of the Bank who served during its first 70 years, and works by South Africa's leading artists (see images), index and bibliography - all printed on 170 gm2 gloss-art paper.

This is a complete unmarked and as-new copy.
