Die Besoeker - 'n Episode in die lewe van Eugène Marais
Eugène Nielen Marais - advokaat, joernalis, natuurvorser en een van die eerste skrywers van formaat in Afrikaans - was, volgens Robert Ardrey, 'the purest genius that the natural sciences have seen in this century'. In die draaiboek van Die Besoeker vertolk Fugard die maande van bitter lyding wat Marais op die Meyer- gesin se afgeleë plaas ,Steenkampskraal', deurgebring het met die bedoeling om hom van morfienverslaafdheid te bevry. Die skrywer, Athol Fugard, Suid-Afrika se voorste dramaturg (Sizwe Banzi is Dead, The Blood Knot, The Island, Hello and Goodbye, Boesman and Lena, People are Living There) het saamgewerk met die bekroonde regisseur, Ross Devenish, wie se rolprent Boesman and Lena oral in die wêreld hoog aangeskryf is.*Cover shelf rubbed; Name inscription on first page*

How we describe the condition of our books
We are very proud of the condition of the books we sell (please read our testimonials to find out more!)
New: Exactly as it says.
As New: Pretty much new but shows small signs of having been read; inside it will be clean without any inscriptions or stamps; might contain a remainder mark.
Very Good: Might have some creases on the spine; no hard cracks; maybe slight forward lean and short inscription inside; perhaps very minor bumping on the corners of the book; inside clean but the page edges might be slightly yellowed.
Good: A few creases on the spine, perhaps a forward lean, bumping on corners or shelfwear; maybe an inscription inside or some shelfwear or a small tear or two on the dustjacket; inside but page edges might be somewhat yellowed.
Fair: In overall good condition, might have a severe forward lean to the spine, an inscription, bumping to corners; one or two folds on the covers and yellowed pages; in exceptional cases these books might contain some library stamps and stickers or have neat sticky tape which was used to fix a short, closed tear.
Poor: We rarely sell poor condition books, unless the books are in demand and difficult to find in a better condition. Poor condition books are still perfect for a good read, all pages will be intact and none threatening to fall out; most probably a reading copy only.
