The contents are most gratifying. They are extraordinarily healthy and hale. The marbled paper trims are neat and tidy.

So Fair a Land - South Africa, de Kock, Victor
12 de Kock, Victor So Fair a Land - South Africa
Union Booksellers (Pty) Ltd., Pretoria 1965? Hardcover Very Good Fair Hardcover Signed
243 pages (complete). A rather defensive, thin-skinned conceived book: "South Africa ... is busily engaged with the most complex problem in the world today: finding a formula for the peaceful and fruitful co-existence of her fourteen million Bantu, Whites, Coloureds and Asiatics. In order to do this satisfactorily, she must be able to carry out her policy without interference from ... Western, Eastern or African countries... Should this book help a little towards a better understanding ... its author would feel that his work had not been in vain." The book is very much of its time, but is pleasingly curious insight into perceptions, portrayals, priorities and images of the late sixties. Inscribed and signed by Victor de Kock on the title page. The dustjacket is placid. It has much scuffing, wear all about, some marking and fading. It is secure and sure. The red boards are steady, sound, healthy. The contents are agreeably benign. They are clean, clear, well-ordered, benevolent, patrician, confident, generous. fk
