This is magnificent! A real boon for a language with not many good resources!

I‘ve looked around and apparently this is not really a set that’s easily available. I don’t know if I’ll find the rest of the set or the books.


Yes, 1st Generation. I purchased that set on eBay about three years ago and it never arrived although I received a refund (without an explanation) and I've never seen a set before or since. I could be wrong depending on the size of the records, but it doesn't sound like the set of records is complete as there more LPs than that. The 1st Generation Polish and 1st Generation Afrikaans seem to be as rare as hen's teeth unfortunately.

I have mp3 copies of the 1950 Linguaphone Afrikaans. Is there an earlier version?

There may or may not be earlier "editions" (i.e. same content but different binding, etc. and I have seen some variance in illustration between different editions) but this would be the first "generation".

Please provide your full street address, and the hours that you are at work and the house is unoccupied ;)
