The Floor - the End of an Era
Purple Box, Auckland Park, Johannesburg. 1996, First Edition. (ISBN: 0620207817). Hardcover. 80 pages (complete). A resolutely dignified copy that has been subjected to damp storage conditions. The matte boards have some mild wear and knocks. The faces are scuffed. The contents are wrinkled and lightly stained by the damp storage along the top of the pages. The first free page declares this copy to have been a complimentary copy from 'Simpson McKie James Capel' in Johannesburg. This copy has been signed by the staff - some of whom are now leaders of finance and banking in South Africa: Heidi Rolfe, Raisibe Ramokgopa, David Block, Mark Levy, Bill Young, Jacques Verster, James Bland, Andrew Moir, Ross Randall, Dixie Strong, Keith Rayner, Nicky Brouwer. Despite the wrinkling about the edges, the pages effectively convey the poignancy and drama of the last days of the old-style Johannesburg Stock Exchange. The pages are benign, patient, clear, certain. fk. Fair/No Jacket. Signed.
