JOHNSTON, R.H. - Early Motoring in South Africa

(Cape Town: Struik Publishers, 1987) 0869775596. . 280 x 215 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. 224 (including index); numerous black-and-white photographs. Sunned on spine and adjacent portion of wrappers; bottom fore-corner of lower cover slightly creased; faint trace of foxing to edges and inside of wrappers. Very good condition. "This is intended to be a human story about motorists and the cars they bought, drove, raced, crashed, cursed, scrapped, hated - and loved. Early Motoring in South Africa is a nostalgic and informative look at the first 40 years of the motor-car in Southern Africa - the good years before the servant became the master, but also the years of frustration and disappointment, bad roads, rough terrain and economic depression. Spanning the period 1897 to 1939 there are over 425 photographs, most of which are unique, and an authoritative yet entertaining text.".
