(Dundee: R. A. Burns & Co., 2000). Author's presentation inscription on copyright page. 240 x 170 mm; laminated pictorial wraps; pp. xii + 104; map; monochrome photographs and diagrams in text. Near fine condition; slightest crease to corner of lower cover. "The discovery of coal in Northern KwaZulu Natal nearly one hundred and forty years ago set the stage for the development of the coal mining industry in the region. Mother Nature created an extremely challenging mining environment that at times has imposed a heavy toll on human life. The need arose for the formation of a mines rescue service. A corps of trained men, with courage, skill and efficiency, combined with the use of modern breathing apparatus and ancillary equipment, who could be called upon in emergencies. Their focus was in saving lives and limiting further loss.

Spectacular photographs and informative text on the larger marine fauna of Algoa Bay. "Algoa Bay is one of the largest bays in Africa, its mouth measuring 90 km from Cape Recife in the west to Woody Cape in the east. The bay is in the middle of a transition zone between winter and summer rainfall regions, cold and warm currents as well as geological and geomorphologic features. As a result of this, we find a much greater variety of ecological niches which are occupied by a much greater variety of coastal fauna than is found elsewhere in bays along the South African coast or elsewhere in the world." .

Some foxing to inner wraps, prelims. and final leaves; regular light browning throughout. Very good condition. "Bessie Head was a born writer, but one born also to a deprived childhood and a life of often recurring hardship. Indeed, her life echoes many aspects of the distressing history of South Africa in the last half-century. She was born in an asylum to a white woman who was considered mad; her father was black. Yet despite the disadvantages of being both a person of mixed race and a woman she made her way in Cape Town and Johannesburg as a journalist. As the political crisis deepened in South Africa in the 1960s, Bessie went into exile in rural Botswana. Although her life as a refugee in Botswana was full of crises and upheavals, her creative energy was released by her adopted country and she produced stories and novels - such as Where Rain Clouds Gather, Maru, A… Read more

"Vroeg in 1974 het Morkel van Tonder, die Hoof van die Afrikaanse Diens van die S.A.U.K., my gevra om 'n weeklikse rubriek oor die woorde van Afrikaans vir die oggendprogram Monitor te behartig. Ek het dit gedoen en met verrassing gevind dat die luisteraars daarvan gehou het. Talle mense wat na die rubriek luister, het my dan ook versoek om die praatjies in boekvorm te laat verskyn. Die praatjies is hersien, maar wat inhoud betref, verskyn hulle hier soos ek hulle oorspronklik oor die radio gelewer het. Agter is daar 'n register, sodat mens 'n bepaalde woord of uitdrukking maklik in die teks kan opspoor." .

Hy skroom nie om fyn spottend sy misnoeë oor dinge soos "Romaanse geswollenheid", "Oortolligheid" en "Vaagheid omhul in mistigheid" te kenne te gee nie, maar sy liefde vir en behae in die kleurrykheid van ons taal bly die hooftema van hierdie versameling.' .

"With regard to the imposing work of Roberts (1951, The Mammals of South Africa) we find ourselves in some difficulty. The canon "de mortuis . . . " is one to which men of goodwill universally subscribe: on the other hand we believe that in scientific work there is an overriding consideration. We therefore record, with regret, that the scientific thought of the last few decades appears to have had little influence on this author's taxonomic assessments, and that his systematics to the last were little advanced from those of Père Heude who, in the 1880s, had five specimens of Sika Deer from the island of Formosa, and described five… Read more
