Doug,

I agree, I try to display the best I can, I am sure you will do a good job.
Good idea about the maps, I have used maps as a background and it can be effective.
Just took the photo so the lighting is not too good.

I am hoping the refurbishment and extension will be around 5-6 months, so in for late summer. I am spending lots of time thinking about how to display the items. I don't really want them locked away, but was thinking of some pertinent maps on the wall alongside the books for easy reference.

Doug.

Just finished 'Die Mauser Knal' by JF Van Wyk which is the memoirs of a 16 year old Penkop fighting with the Boers in the Western Transvaal and am currently busy with 'Fire in the sky by' by Owen Coetzer which is about the destruction of the Free State 1899-1902, after that I have acquired a 1941 first edition copy of ' Vir Vryheid En Vir Reg' By General JC Kemp. Needless to say being English speaking the Afrikaans books are challenging to read but happily my speed is improving :)
