R50,000.00

                                                           For sale is a rare copy of Long Walk to Freedom signed and dated by Mr Mandela. 

This is the rare MacDonald Purnell edition and was signed before the official release in South Africa at a special event in Johannesburg. Only 500 copies were signed and sold at the event which was by invitation only.

This is the true first edition, first printing and precedes all other editions such as the Little Brown USA or UK edition.

The copy and the dust jacket are in a truly fine condition and it has no shelf wear or tanning. The copy also comes with a certificate of authenticity by world renowned handwriting specialist Mr Cecil Greenfield. Mr Greenfield is considered the foremost expert in authenticating Mr Mandela's signature.

Copies like this only rarely come onto the market and currently I can only find one other copy for sale at R60 000.

High end items such as this will increase in value at a faster rate than other items signed by Mr Mandela and are a sure way of diversifying your investments or owning a unique piece of South African history.

Sale price R50 000 non-negotiable.

A:
I have resubmitted the other item to Mr Greenfield and will see what happens. I have been assured it is authentic, but I do want to make sure..I dont want to damage my online profile and I am not out to scam anyone. I should have an answer sometime this next week. It has caused alot of aggrevation and additional expense for me. This item is really special and I am not bothered if it does not sell. Its already tripled in value since I bought it..Its the true 1st edition and will increase substantially in coming years.
Have a good Easter
