About This Item

(Pretoria: J. H. de Bussy, and Cape Town: H.A.U.M., 1936). 199 x 138 mm; printed wrappers; pp. 142 + (ii); frontis. portrait and a further 3 plates. Some shallow fishmothing to bottom edges of lower wrapper and final two leaves; wrappers a little sunned and very slightly soiled; spotting to fore- and top edges, occasionally elsewhere. Good condition. Afrikaans text. (Nienaber I, p. 268) Overview of the work of J.F. van Oordt, a seminal figure in the development of Afrikaans folk literature, who wrote under the nom de plume of 'D'Arbez'. "Hierdie studie van mnr. Nienaber oor die lewe en werk van D'Arbez wil ek hiermee by die Afrikaanslesende publiek inlei. Die stof is nog intyds in Suid-Afrika en in Nederland versamel, omdat getuienis uit die eerste hand aangaande D'Arbez en sy lewenswerk skaars word. Verder is die boek van belang omdat dit die vraagstuk aan die orde stel volgens watter kriterium 'n kunswerk ingedeel moet word in die Afrikaanse letterkunde: uitsluitend die Afrikaanse taalvorm of ook Afrikaans sfeer en gees selfs by Nederlandse taalvorm, veral voor en gedurende die period van oorgang van Nederlands op Afrikaans." .
