"An award-winning international sensation, Shake Hands with the Devil is a landmark contribution to the literature of war: a remarkable tale of a soldier's courage and an unforgettable parable of good and evil. It is also a stinging indictment of the petty bureaucrats who refused to give Dallaire the men and the operational freedom he needed to stop the killing. 'I know there is a God', Dallaire writes, 'because in Rwanda I shook hands with the devil. I have seen him, I have smelled him and I have touched him. I know the devil exists and therefore I know there is a God.' " .

Near-fine condition. "William Edward Moore was expected to follow his father into military service but his life turned upside down at the age of nine when his father died. He was taken under the wing of the Chief Justice of the Cape, Sir John Wylde, who encouraged the young boy to pursue a careeer in law. Moore repaid the generosity of his benefactor by having an outstanding legal career that was to last for sixty-four years. Having settled in the tiny hamlet of Papendorp, he became passionately involved in its welfare and development. He was the driving force that saw Papendorp later become the municipality of Woodstock and he was its first mayor. ... The Father of Woodstock traces the settlement of the Cape from its 17th century beginnings under Dutch rule through the 19th century when the… Read more

(London: Adam and Charles Black, 1937). 8vo; original brown buckram, lettered in gilt on spine; pp. xxxvii + (iii) + 376, incl. index; several plates and maps, incl. folding. Spine very slightly sunned; edges and outermost leaves foxed; sporadic, moderate foxing. Good to very good condition. 'Dampier's New Voyage on its publication won immediate success, and has ever since maintained its place in the front rank among the most notable records of maritime adventure. ... In his Preface Dampier describes his book as "composed of a mixt relation of places and actions," a modest and inadequate indication which would hardly be approved by the advertising experts of the present day. The relation of places was, in fact, an extensive contribution to the geographical and ethnographical knowledge of his time. Nor does the description take count of the frequent excursions in the realm of natural history which diversify the main story with detailed accounts of tropical animals and plants, not… Read more

The Alfred dock was one hundred years only in 1969, the Victoria dock will be one hundred years in 1979 and the Duncan dock is now thirty years old. The book is comprised of happenings connected with shipping over six years and also incorporates my impressions and my thoughts during that time." .

Illustrated and annotated catalogue. "In the rural areas of southern Africa an extremely rich heritage of handcrafted art has been preserved by the black people. Uncorrupted by industrialisation, yet perfected by modern ideas, the objects which started as simple household items have been adapted and embellished for contemporary use. The craftspeople retain their natural artistry, but the products spread further to people who value beauty with function. This brochure illustrates a range of these handcrafted items, and tells the story of the people who make them. It brings together established groups that started out as Church-based development projects striving to become economically independent." .

"Like Gibbon's Decline and Fall, Hakluyt's collection has been unjustly neglected because of its enormous length. Many abridgements are too short to do justice to the variety and scope of the original, while others concentrate on its historical or economic interest. The present selection conveys all the variety of the original while emphasizing the extraordinary human interest of the documents." .

Why did Rhodes become a symbol of the largest empire in the history of mankind? Why was it Rhodes who became the idol of colonialism in the epoch of the division of the world? And what impression did his personality leave on the nature of colonialism? These are some of the questions which the book tries to answer." .

There is a corner of this beautiful region to satisfy every soul ... These pages reflect what comprises the essential character of the place: the natural surroundings, the contrast of modern and traditional and, importantly, the many creative and industrious individuals who live here, providing an insight into the activities with which they fill their days." .

This volume aims to demonstrate to students of geography the range of applications open to them, and at the same time to indicate to non-geographers the important potential of geographical techniques applied to evaluation and planning." .
