This copy once belonged to renowned South African artist W. H. Coetzer (1900-1983). Coetzer is known for his depictions of events in early Boer/Afrikaner history. He designed the tapestries in the Voortrekker Monument and also painted historic scenes on the walls. His signed bookplate is on the front paste down.
Another renowned former owner of this book was lawyer and writer Manfred Nathan. Apart from being the author of many South African law books, he also wrote the histories of the Huguenots in South Africa, The Voortrekkers, a biography on President Paul Kruger and a work of fiction titled Sarie Marais. His rubber name stamp is on the front end paper.
The small bookplate of well-known Africana book collector Robert P. Siff is also on the front end paper.
