    Jilly Rizzo's Personal Copy of The 1981 Unabridged Traveler's Guide to Sun City, South Africa Sinatra Tour Packet. Sinatra right-hand man Jilly Rizzo found himself in the middle of an international controversy during the summer of 1981, when Ol' Blue Eyes played a series of dates in Sun City, South Africa, for which he was condemned by the United Nations Special Committee on Apartheid. Before the Sinatra contingent left on the tour, Jilly and each member of the band received Frank's official Unabridged Traveler's Guide covering the proper etiquette they were to follow at customs, hotels, and restaurants while in South Africa, then in Argentina and Brazil, where further dates were scheduled. This unique guide is marked "Jilly" in black marker on the front cover. Contents include information on customs, lodging, dining, gambling, and other leisure activities, and staging requirements for the Sinatra performances. This volume is a one-of-a-kind treasure related to one of Frank Sinatra's major tours, and was in the possession of Jilly Rizzo until his death in 1992. Fine condition. From the Jilly Rizzo Estate Archive. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from William Rizzo.
