Mimosa Superman 4 Giant Edition in Afrikaans

Mimosa Comics produced numerous reprints of DC Comics' Action Comics and Superman titles in the late 1950's and early 1960's. Some were translated into Afrikaans. The Afrikaans translation was excellent.

This is Mimosa Comics' Superman 4 Giant Edition. Colour Cover, black-and-white interior pages, 48 pages.

Cover of Issue 4 from 1962 and DC Comics' original cover of Action Comics 268 from September 1960:
 Splash page and Last page with house ads for Afrikaans titles Liefde, Woeste Weste and Superman Giant Edition 3 (Cover matches Action Comics 267):
 Splash page of the Supergirl (Supermeisie!) story with corresponding original English page for comparison:
 Superman translations into Afrikaans are uncommon - apart from these Mimosa reprints, the only other one I have come across is this Americom title from the early 1980's:
