Harry Klein, author of 'Land of the Silver Mist', describes this book as "a tribute to those wonderful old-timers of the Northern Transvaal who pioneered what was once the wilds of mountain and bush, the wonderful indigenous forests and the wide sweep of the Lowveld. It rekindles in my mind the names of the people I met long ago at Haenertsburg and around, the lives they lived, and the simplicity and happiness of a different form of life to that which we know today." .

Description:
(no date, but possibly 188-). Written in a hasty hand, on two sides of an octavo leaf. 'Ons klim die berge oor; / Paul Kruger gaat vooraan. / Die waters van die see, / Die bloue oceaan, / Begroet ons Volksbestaan / Ons onafhanklikheid / In Delagoa Baai / Naar Engeland [?waai?]' etc., etc. 'Kon Piet Retief ons land nou sien / En Gert Maritz en Pieter Uys / En al die martelare / Van onse droefheidsjare / En kon Pretorius hou vooraan / Met Paul ook naar die Oceaan / En naar die oorlogskepe gaan! / Kon almal uit hul grafte opstaan!' etc. etc. This item fell out of a copy of H.J. Hofstede, Geschiedenis van den Oranje-Vriustaat (published 1876). It needs to be researched, but may relate either to the delegation of Transvaal Boers sent to London to plead the cause of independence in the late 1870s; or it may date from 1900, when Kruger, went into exile in Europe [although the latter suggestion doesn't account for the reference to England in the first stanza.] This may be a transcription… Read More

(Pretoria, Raad vir Geesteswetenskaplike Navorsing, 1982). Pictorial dustwrapper, pictorial boards, endpaper map, pp. (x) + 223, photographic illustrations. Owner's name on the title-page. Good condition. Blurb: 'Die staking wat meer as twee maande geduur het en waartydens nagenoeg 680 soldate, polisiemanne en burgerlikes gedood of verwond is, was 'n gebeurtenis wat as't ware moes plaasvind om spanninge wat oor 'n lang tydperk aan die Witwatersrand opgebou het, te ontlaai. Dit was tewens 'n episode in die Suid-Afrikaanse geskiedenis wat die aandag sterk op sosio-ekonomiese vraagstukke gevestig het. Nadat die Smuts-bewind in 1924 deur generaal Hertzog se Pakt-regering vervang is, is besondere aandag aan hierdie probleme - en veral die lot van die Blanke werker - gegee.' .

In hierdie verhandeling is dan ook vryelik gebruik gemaak van gepubliseerde werke en oorspronklike bronne.' .

'Op 12 April 1877 het die Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek sy onafhanklikheid verloor en 'n Britse kolonie geword deur 'n proklamasie wat voor die Goewermentskantoor op Kerkplein in Pretoria aan 'n klein skare, hoofsaaklik Engelssprekend, voorgelees is. Op die oog af het dit gelyk asof die "audacious proceeding" waarmee Theophilus Shepstone die Z.A.R. onder die Britse vlag geplaas het, deur die inwoners met berusting aanvaar sou word. Maar reeds 'n dag voor die anneksasie is 'n protesbeweging onder die Transvaalse Afrikaners gebore om die vryheid van die republiek op vreedsame wyse te herstel, en minder as 'n maand later was die Eerste Deputasie - Paul Kruger, dr.

Within six months the town of Barberton had been proclaimed and some ten thousand people descended on the Kaap Valley. They came from Klondike in Alaska, from Cornwall and California and from all corners of South Africa. In a matter of months Barberton became the most populous, and probably the rowdiest, town in the Transvaal. Before a church or a courthouse could be built, it had three newspapers, two stock exchanges, ten hotels, two clubs and a public house on every street corner. Piet Meiring tells the… Read More
