South Africa: MacDonald Purnell, 1994.

First South African edition, early printing of this autobiography of one of the great moral leaders of the twentieth century. Octavo, original black cloth, pictorial endpapers. Boldly signed “NMandela 15.5.95” on the half-title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket.

"The Nelson Mandela who emerges from his memoir is considerably more human than the icon of legend Mandela is, on the evidence of his amazing life, neither a messiah nor a moralist nor really a revolutionary but a pragmatist to the core, a shrewd balancer of honor and interests. He is, to use a word unhappily fallen into disrepute, a politician, though one distinguished from lesser practitioners of his calling mainly by his unwavering faith in his ultimate objective, ending white minority rule" (New York Times).
