I can get a 1986 first edition hardcover version of the above book.

Is it a good research guide worth the money?

I would give it a big thumbs up. In the back there is a section with bios of some medal recipients. Mostly life saving but a nice read.

fjcp,

I did end up buying it but so far just flipped through it since we're busy renovating house to sell but it does look interesting.

Hi Wessel,

Did you buy the R450 one offered by blankbooks on Bidorbuy ?

 I bought the R500 from them and hope to receive it by mail this week.

Knowledge is never to expensive.

I bought the one offered for R 500 by lastchancebooks.

I also bought a secondhand copy from them of one of my favorite books: ''River God'' by Wilbur Smith...but that bit didn't involve BidorBuy.

I think I own all of Smith's earlier books - the Courtney saga, 'Shout At the Devil' and so on.  Never got as interested in his Egyptian stuff.

For some reason I'm more into the Egyptian stuff...but luckily we can both agree in peace he's a great writer.
