A near Fine unmarked copy free from ownership inscription Two very minor small marks to fore and top edge. Dustjacket is also near Fine and is not price clipped. First edition, second impression. 20 illustrations. The story of an extraordinary friendship for over 20 years - from Robben Island, to Victor Verster jail - James Gregory was Nelson Mandela's jailer. Yet, when the time came at last for Mandela's release they embraced as close friends, and Gregory was a personal guest at Mandela's inauguration ceremony. As Mandela and Gregory's friendship grew over the years, they became each other's confidant and source of comfort. Gregory acted as go-between for Mandela's wife Winnie and their children, and Mandela became a godfather to Gregory's daughter. On several occasions, Gregory even smuggled Mandela out of the prison compound in the boot of his car. Party to Mandela's thoughts, fears and desires for over 20 years, no one knows Mandela quite like Gregory - revealing the foe who became a friend, the prisoner who became the President. The book was made into a film 'The color of Freedom'. **** NOT EX LIB ****
