"On a lonely stretch of road near a small coastal town a murder is committed. There is no one to witness the act and no one who could predict the bizarre repercussions which must inevitably follow. By taking on the identity of his victim, the murderer cannot foresee the sequence of events which, once set in motion, are inescapable, not only for him, but for all the town's inhabitants - from the light-fingered Valentine, who unwittingly leads them to the body, to Captain Mong, who cannot rest until he gets his man. And beneath the apparent workings of justice, contradictory forces are at war ... " .

No feat of arms has ever been greeted with anything like the outburst of nationalistic hysteria that swept Britain during the days which followed the famous night of 18 May 1900, Mafeking Night. Mafeking was Relieved! - and the seven-month-long stout-hearted defence of the small British garrison was hailed as the supreme victory of the British characteristics of pluck and phlegm over impossible odds, a symbol which ushered in the glorious new century of the British Empire. The commander of the garrison, Colonel R. S. S.… Read more

Fine condition. "By now, almost two hundred editions of Cranford have appeared, and though I doubt if it is read as widely as it once was, or loved so universally - and what classic of the nineteenth century is? - it still has a loyal and devoted following, and acquires new readers every time it is re-issued. Many attempts have been made to account for its longstanding place in the hearts of the reading public, as will always be the case with a popular classic, and there have been many interpretations and explanations and academic dissections of the text. Cranford has been many things to many people. ... But although it has serious points to make, and indeed is at heart a deeply serious book, Cranford is first and foremost a work of… Read more

Description:
---. Extracted from Celebrities of the Army, edited by Commander C.N. Robinson, R.N., and published in fortnightly sixpenny parts, in London, by George Newnes, circa 1900. 'At a time when all eyes are turned to the operations of our troops in South Africa, those who are responsible for the organisation of our forces at home, and their conduct in the field, are much in the public mind. This series of CELEBRITIES OF THE ARMY will present its chiefs and leaders in a very vivid manner. ... the public craves to know more of the men whom it trusts, and to whom it looks to accomplish its will. They will be shown in this series, in a manner that is at once striking and altogether new, by admirable portraits in colours and life-like presentments of character in the text.' The page measures 37 x 27.5 cms, and the image area (not including the caption), measures about 25 x 19 cms. A brief career and character sketch of the subject appears on the reverse of the portrait. One leaf only, folio. .

"If racial peace, harmony, forgiveness, reconciliation, justice, equality, and all the rest can come to be in South Africa after Apartheid and all that went before, why can't it happen everywhere? it was asked. That was then, the mid-1990s, in the immediate aftermath of South Africa's first multiracial elections. Now, during the 2000s, more and more people both inside and outside the country are beginning to see the Republic of South Africa as shaping up to be more of a big disappointment or a sad shame than a miracle. White, Black, Coloured and Asian people didn't all suddenly come to love each other with the death of Apartheid and coming to power of a multiracial political party." .
