About this Item: Maskew Miller Limited, Cape Town, 1931. Hardcover. Condition: Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. 192 pages (complete). Taking the book's age into account this copy is in good to fair condition. Beet had intricate knowledge of the stories of the diggers of the Diamond Fields being the editor of the Diamond News for many years. This is a benign and cheerful book. The cloth cover is scuffed and worn but is dignified. The back cover has some staining. Inside, the early pages have foxing as do the papertrims. The body of pages is clear, amiable, companionable, sure, comfortable and very occasionally foxed. fk. Seller Inventory # axao
