Description:
(Cape Town: Maskew Miller, 1928). Small 4to; original blue cloth, lettered in black on spine and upper cover; pp. (vi) + 182; plates. Extremities somewhat worn; binding a little slack; moderate foxing throughout. Good. (Hosken, p. 69) 'This little volume from the pen of Miss Dorothea Fairbridge gives in the form of a story the impressions of an English lady on a visit to Cape Town. Miss Fairbridge, who is the authoress of several other works on South Africa, has a gift for descriptive writing, and "Along Cape Roads" may be regarded as an informal "guide." It will be read with interest by visitors and by oversea friends who may contemplate a visit, and South Africans will appreciate the fullness of the authoress's knowledge of the parts of the country which she describes. The six illustrations are reproductions of etchings by Mr. R. Gwelo Goodman, and some ot them appear for the first time.' .

Description:
(Salisbury: Assegai, no date, ca. 1978). 45 rpm vinyl recording in 180 x 180 mm pictorial sleeve; overall running time 4 minutes 50 seconds. Sleeve rather sunned. Very good condition. The record sleeve gloss reads, in part: "John Fall knows better than many that the methods employed by the so-called 'Freedom Fighters' are those of stark terrorism, with the majority of their victims being Rhodesian Africans - slaughtered by their own kind for a false ideology. This padre is equally convinced that any change of administration brought about by force would result in nothing but hardship and misery. He also believes that offers of assistance by outside powers which seek to meddle in what is fundamentally a domestic situation are ill-advised and impertinent. Like all humanitarians, John Fall feels nothing but abhorrence for those who kill and maim innocent victims for the furtherance of their masters' ambitions. Here are the words of a priest who speaks from experience, who has… Read more

(London, Longmans, 1958). 8vo; original red boards somewhat soiled, faded and rubbed; spine sl. cocked; no dustwrapper; endpapers and prelim's a little foxed; pp. xvi + 334, incl. index; black-and-white plates; maps. Fair condition. "This book tells of many travels and incidents, much movement, action of all sorts; for Stanley, although his gainful occupation was saying things, was essentially a man who did things. It is through his deeds that we must see the man, but, as in most lives, a man's history cannot be separated from his character and personality. The crammed incidents of Stanley's life are as diversified as they are romantic: he was a storekeeper, soldier, sailor, newspaper reporter, explorer, builder, statesman, author, politician; he knew wars, famine, disease, brutality, poverty, wealth, and - eventually - love. But this is more than a simple adventure story; the stocky man with the boyish look and perpetual frown hardly fits the conventional picture of the… Read more

Fine condition. "It is Shrewsbury's vivid description of ... encounters [with the Xhosa] which make his records a fascinating read, for they provide snapshots of two worldviews meeting, interacting, engaging and colliding. Shrewsbury's journal and letters also provide insight into the motivations and labours of the pioneer missionary who in 1827 established Butterworth, the first mission station in the Transkei. They describe his struggles with language difficulties, physical and emotional hardships, and an inability to relate to Xhosa culture. And, though Shrewsbury's writings can only faintly reflect the sentiments of the Xhosa, they depict a people… Read more

Near fine condition. "Andrew Feinstein became an active supporter of the African National Congress in the 1980s, and campaigned energetically for the party in the first democratic elections. He was elected to parliament where he rose swiftly through the ranks, earning the label 'Mr Clean' for his unstinting work against corruption. But his feelings of euphoria at being part of the new South Africa slowly soured. Disappointed by the constant jockeying for power and the views held by President Thabo Mbeki on HIV/AIDS, Feinstein's disillusionment grew as he sought unsuccessfully to investigate the corruption surrounding the infamous arms deal. Isolated from his former comrades, some of them senior members of government, Feinstein was ultimately forced to choose between his principles and… Read more
