Capetown; (1986): The Gallery Press. First Edition. Quarto. Item #025487

xviii, 186 pages. Glossary,; Foreword By Bishop Desmond Tutu. List of Papers and Maps. Apartheid led to impoverishment of blacks in South Africa and the document has a foreword by Bishop Tutu which is an indictment in itself into the power of racism that not only was the official stance of the British Government but for many decades of the white Dutch Reformed Church. He notes: "it is a crime for a woman to be in bed with her husband if he is a migrant laborer" [so they could keep him in a single sex hostel and have him work longer hours]. The one hundred and thirty-six photographs show stark examples of the system that was finally broken. Bound in black paper covered boards lettered in white, spine lettering white, slight bumping to corners. A very good copy in a very good pictorial dust jacket with tiny edge tear and some toning to white areas.
