Why We Love This

The Randlords: The Exploits and Exploitations of South Africa's Mining Magnates by Geoffrey Wheatcroft. New York: Atheneum, 1986. Second Printing. 314 pages. Hardcover with dust jacket. By the 1890s diamonds were discovered in the previously ignored area called South Africa. This drew every sort of ambitious, often ruthless men to the area, created feuds, turned the previously quiet world inside out. The story of these men.

About librarylions

Julie Goldman has been collecting books all her life. As a child, she spent many days haunting the used book stores on 4th Avenue in NYC with her father. Most collectors become booksellers out of necessity, and Goldman began selling about 15 years ago. The library lions are the pair of stone lions who guard the New York Public Library. Their names are Patience and Fortitude. When you place an order with librarylions it will receive the attention and treatment it deserves.
