Production of this major work was made possible through the wholehearted co-operation recieved from the schools concerned, and a few other contributions of special features. Each school has its own chapter identified by a title page which features the school crest. In addition to the twenty-three school histories, prepared by the schools themselves, there are articles on the Rhodesian Schools' Exploration Society, the Young Scientists' Exhibitions and the Beit and Rhodes Trusts, the latter naming all Rhodes Scholars from former Rhodesian schools. Also included are an informative Introduction by Mr I.H. Grant, then Secretary for Education (1979), and an historical survey by the late Mr. G.H. Tanser, Chief Education Officer of the Ministry, 1958-1960, entiled 'Foundations of the Educational System, 1892-1914'.

The book comprises 372 pages, is printed on best quality, heavy matt art paper, and is in a large format of 30 x 21,5 cm (12" x 8 "). The green cover is richly gold-blocked with the title, and it has a complementary two-colour dust-jacket. It includes over 500 photographs, and nearly 9 000 ex-students and staff are named in the text, in captions, in end-of-chapter Rolls of Honour (1914-1918, 1939-1945, and 1968-1979), and in lists of School Heads, Head Boys and Girls, Captains of Games, Winners of Scholarships and Bursaries, etc.
