Small crease to bottom fore-corner of lower cover; occasional fox spot. Very good condition. Afrikaans text. "Die spannende verhaal van die kommunis Bram Fischer, leier van 'n revolusionêre beweging in 'n ondergrondse komplot teen die apartheidsregering, is maar een deel van Fischer se storie. Nadat hy die ander samesweerders soos Nelson Mandela in die Rivonia-verhoor verdedig het, is hy self aangekla, maar het verdwyn terwyl hy op borgtog uit was. Ná maande is hy gevang en tot lewenslank gevonnis. Daarby moes hy leef met 'n verskriklike selfverwyt oor 'n motorongeluk waarin sy vrou dood is. Maar naas die intrige en spioenasie is daar ook 'n ander verhaal van 'n gelukkige Vrystaatse jeug en hegte bande tussen Bram en sy ma, die skrywer Ella Fischer. Hannes Haasbroek vertel beide verhale gesaghebbend en deeglik, deels gegrond… Read more

(London, Macdonald, 1949). 8vo, original blue cloth somewhat faded at extremities of backstrip, no dustwrapper, original illustrations by Lancelot Speed, extensive moderate foxing (quite pronounced in endpapers), gift inscription on front free endpaper, pp. 304. Fair condition. "Rider had reached home on 27 July and, after resting and then writing about his adventures [in Iceland], he sat down to write his Icelandic saga, Eric Brighteyes, on 29 August. By 25 December 1888, he had finished 266 foolscap pages. Lang, to whom he first showed the manuscript, was ecstatic: 'I have read four chapters . . . I think it is the best thing you have done . . .' . . . In his study Old Icelandic Sources in the English Novel (1935) Ralph Bergen Allen places Eric Brighteyes ahead of all other English novels of this type." - H.

Folio; original red rexine; spine gilt; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; unpaginated; lavishly illustrated with colour and monochrome photographs. Dustwrapper edges very slightly curled; a little foxing to prelims. Very good condition. "There have been many attempts to capture in words and pictures the totality of South Africa. But, up to today, all the attempts have been by individuals, who could not hope to succeed, for no single person can ever accurately portray all the beauty, the richness, the diverse social structure, the controversy that comprises this Land in the Sun. This book does the impossible. It takes one ordinary day, Wednesday 26th May, 1982, and through the lenses of thousands of photographers, it brings you South Africa, as seen by South Africans." .

Some of what I have to tell has already been told by a far abler pen, that of my dear husband, Hugh L. Hall, in his book "I Have Reaped my Mealies", but I think he would have agreed with all those who have said that I am able to help fill in the picture so to speak from the distaff side, and I am sure he would have given me courage and confidence.' .

"Southern Africa is a land of the strange, the mysterious and the unexplained - there are enigmatic tales of gold in ancient ruins, ghostly sightings, curious artefacts from the distant past, evidence of life that defies history and, of course, unsolved murders. Beyond Belief is a vivid collection of some of these fascinating stories. The authors have researched their subjects, sharing facts with us, but leaving us to ponder tales of the unexplained, the contradictory and the unsolved. Many attempts have been made to lay legend to rest, to resolve persistent rumours, and to provide us with facts instead of fantasy, but most have failed.… Read more
