Clothbound in photo-illustrated dust jacket.** 71 black-and-white reproductions.
**NOTE: This first edition of the In Boksburg was initially issued with a plain, printed black dust jacket. However, these were not printed in sufficient number to cover all of the books that were produced. When sales of the book stalled, the publisher decided to have this new jacket printed.



"When David Goldblatt, one of South Africa's most respected photographers, set out 14 years ago to document white South Africa, the place he settled on as his Middletown was Boksburg. His pictures show a people smug and secure. The races intersected only in the most formal of contacts -- master-servant, employer-laborer or the patronizing relationship of well-intentioned do-gooders toward the poor natives. Goldblatt's portrayal of all this was so cruelly honest that his book is not stocked in the Boksburg city library."--Bill Keller, "Boksburg's Goofy White Smiles," New York Times, September 19, 1993

Fine-/Fine- jacket; moderate wear to extremities of boards; 'tips' of jacket lightly abraded
