First edition, first printing. Signed Limited Edition. Publisher's deluxe binding of half brown morocco over marbled boards. Four raised bands and titles in gilt to the a red morocco label to the spine. Housed in the original cloth slipcase. Photographically illustrated in colour and black and white throughout together with facsimiles of Mandela's Personal Diaries and Notes. A fine clean and bright copy, without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Rare in this form, the small limitation and the fact that most were meant for personal presentation makes it one of the most difficult of the author's signed deluxe editions to acquire.
Limited to only 100 copies, this copy is hand numbered 50 and signed by Nelson Mandela in black ink to the limitation page.
