First edition: frontispiece map – plan of Durban, 177 pages, 32 full page plates – mainly black and white, 4 maps, pictorial paper covered boards, a fine copy in the matching dust jacket.

Signed by the author on the title page. Extracted from the author’s preface: This book paints a picture of Durban, almost a century ago, between the world wars in the 1920s and 19302. It was then a settler town but a little later, from 1935, it became a city and a thriving seaport on the south east coast of Africa – its inhabitants comprising many a hue a creed. All this happened in less than a century.
