Two versions of this book were published in the 1920s. This, the first, limited to South Africa, is undated but probably appeared late in 1925 or early in 1926. The second version contained additional pages on Rhodesia. C W H Kohler contribues the opening chapter on the development of South Africa (including a discussion of the National Convention of 1909. This is followed by chapters on horse-racing and horse-breeding, the Wanderers Club, cricket, the universities, rugby and soccer, followed a bay by some three hundred pages on individual sportsmen. Full-bound in heavy red morocco, gilt to upper panel and spine; maroon and gold marbled endpapers; all edges gilt; xiii + 525 pp of illustrated text and index on art paper + inserted single-sided frontispiece and 7 other photogravures on matt paper with tissue guards - all unmarked except for the copy number. The binding is tight and the copy is in very good overall (but see the following condition note). CONDITION NOTE. Material from the bottom margin of this copy some 13 cm long by a depth varying from 1 cm at the front increasing to a maximum of 2.5 cm at the back has been lost to water damage. The book-block is now fully dry and unciscoloured (see image), and a third of gilding of the bottom page edge is intact. The material loss represents a maximum of half the depth of the lower margin and readability is not affected. The same damage has discoloured the bottom of the endpapers, with some flaking at the back and slight damage to the lower back corner. This remains an attractive copy and the damage has been discounted in the reserve.
