With the publication, during July 2000 of her excellent & well researched
book " An Illustrated Guide To Ginger Beer Bottles for South
African Collectors" (ISBN 0-620-25981-7). Ethleen Lastovica

Be this as

and of great interest to researcher and beginner alike.
Many Diggers and collectors were perhaps unduly critical of the
time taken since inception of the concept and possibly unfairly
impatient to see the end result without appreciating the tremendous
amount of research (and cost) involved.
