Johannesburg: Cape to Cairo Publications, 1931. 1st Edition. Hardcover. This is an anthology of short stories from South African writers with a Foreword by Lord de Villiers. Condition is very good in a very good dust jacket. The blue cloth binding is tight, clean, and square, retaining bright spine gilt, sharp corners, and nicely rounded spine. The contents are tight and bright, though spotted on all three text block edges, with intermittent intrusions into the text edges and more spotting at the prelims. There is a gift inscription on the ffep and a small South African bookshop sticker at the front pastedown.
The striking and beautiful bright yellow dust jacket, illustrated in red and black, is highly complete and unfaded. There is soiling to the blank rear face, wrinkling at the spine ends, wear at the corners, and a small, circular bookshop sticker over the publisher's name at the bottom of the spine (from the same bookshop on the pastedown sticker).
