    Thanks, actually I have, but the ones I viewed are reprints. I should have put that I am looking for an "original" published in 1948. I will check again, I did find an Australian edition re-print on ebay, which is in Australia. Unfortunately it is not a 1st or 2nd.

    I have a reprint edition and have read the book. My interest is that Maj. Pretorius is a distant relative.

    James, thank you. Just what I'm looking for, not sure why I didn't think to type in "rare books".

    Very much appreciated.

    Another good place to start for hard to find books is bookfinder.com I have found numerous books there that I could not find anywhere else.
