(Cape Town: Tafelberg, 1977) 0624010562. 8vo; original brown boards, lettered in white on spine; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. (viii) + 239. Dustwrapper sunned on spine panel, with merest trace of edge-wear and a few fox spots to reverse; earlier owner's name signed on front free endpaper. Very good condition. Afrikaans text. "Deur haar briewe kom M.E.R. as beminde en inspirerende vriendin en mentor na vore; as groot, nederige mens, afkeurig van publisiteit, partypolitiek, kultuurkweek en kaalmodes; iemand van suiwer stoffasie, vir wie die vreugde nie in die erkenning gelê het nie maar in die werk self. 'Heeltemal weg sal ek nie,' het sy oor haar naderende dood geskryf. En só is dit gewis. Want, soos sy self 'n keer gesê het: ' 'n groot hart maak 'n groot plek vol'. 'n Kosbare erfenis is 'n nalatenskap van onskatbare waarde." .

From its pages emerges not only a vivid geographical study, but a detailed social and historical description of the life of nature along the banks of the Zambesi. Here that majestic river is portrayed from source to mouth; its meanderings at the start, its sluggish flow through indeterminate marshes, its assault of the rapids and of the Victoria Falls, its course over the vast lower reaches of the delta ... The scenery is constantly changing, from unpeopled wilderness to forests, tributaries and alluvial plains, the haunt of crocodile and hippo, of tiger fish and lion, eagle and vulture, and of deadly insects in trees and flowers and luxuriant undergrowth. ...

"The Ashmolean Museum, the oldest public museum in Britain, houses the University of Oxford's unrivalled collection of art and antiquities from Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Three centuries and more of unbroken history render the Ashmolean one of the most venerable institutions of its kind in the world. When, in 1683, Elias Ashmole endowed the University of Oxford with the already famous Tradescant collection, many of the the exhibits had by that time been on public display for fifty years, extending the origins of the collection to the very threshold of the Stuart era. This book traces the eventful history of the Ashmolean and its collections from its origin as a cabinet of curiosities ..." .

Throughout what was once the colonial world, new political units are being created following the withdrawal of European control. A few of these have inherited the territory of ancient states, but in most places the new entity is an artificial one, defined mainly by the accidents of European diplomacy during the phase of colonization.'
