The author had great success with The Enchanted Door, a work on African book collecting which sold out two editions in a short time. Antiques and Bygones is about objects rather than books, and might be termed a notebook for South African collectors. The subjects dealt with concisely and clearly include furniture, colour prints, silver, Persian rugs, jewellery, beds, glass, pewter, dolls, chamber pots and many other items... Denis Godfrey, who was born in the Transkei of 1820 Settler ancestry, is a Johannesburg journalist and has written and lectured extensively on Africana, which he began collecting 25 years ago.".
