The Special Collections Book of the Week this week is:
The Art and Heritage Collection of the University of Pretoria by Alexander Duffy et al.
This book is the first comprehensive survey of some of the major collections of the University of Pretoria ever published. The book highlights some of the most important artefacts and artworks accumulated by the University of Pretoria in its first 100 years. With the benefit of fresh knowledge and modern attitudes, the authors embark on a detailed description and appraisal of six of the University of Pretoria’s most important collections. These collections reflect the history, heritage and standing of the University of Pretoria as one of South Africa’s leading cultural educating institutions.
