"This issue differs in many ways from the first two editions, which were published in 1959 and sold out in four months." - from the preface.
As well as enlarging the entries, the author has listed the sources for each entry, obtained permission to take information from other published and unpublished work and received a foreword from the State President, Dr Jansen, and a preface from the Prime Minister, Dr Verwoerd.
Apart from library stamps and a bookplate on the front endpaper and a Dewey reference on the spine, this copy is fine throughout. Full-bound in handsome green simulated leather with gilt lettering to the upper panel and the spine, unsunned endpapers and unmarked bright text - xxvii + 1208 pp of bilingual text.
After 48 years, this edition by still be South Africa's most comprehensive one-volume genealogical reference. One Johannesburg bookseller notes: "extremely elusive: $250".
