SOUTH AFRICAN YESTERDAYS (DAVID PHILLIP)
Series Note:
This series was published the Cape Town publisher David Phillip whose business is described here:

"The wave of protest writing in the early 70s, especially in verse, coincided with the emergence of small, independent publishers. Ravan Press, David Phillip and Ad Donker came into existence at roughly the same time, independent of each other. Phillip and Donker were commercial ventures, aimed at profitability. Ravan was based on idealism – the profit motive did not feature at all." (source)
