How it works


This excellent copy of the 1942 edition of Ken Donaldson's admired and long-running series of South African Who's Who has had its binding strengthened and the original backstrip relaid on a new spine.

The edition is rarer than most as it was one of the few to have been published during either of the two world wars.

This edition was priced at "three guineas plus postage" - in current values equivalent to more than one thousand five hundred South African rands.

The red cloth-boards, gilt to the upper panel and spine, are rubbed at the corners. The xxxii + 462 pp of unmarked illustrated text, including advertisements, are printed on heavy art paper.
