Very good condition. "This book focuses on the relationship between two seemingly incompatible political partners. On the one side Cecil Rhodes, perhaps the greatest British imperialist of his time - on the other side the Cape Afrikaners, part of the ethnic community which was engaged in a major war with that very empire at the close of the nineteenth century. Rhodes skillfully courted the Cape Afrikaners, despite his ardent imperialism and their autonomous colonial intent. While the impact of British imperialism and capitalism set in motion a process of ethnic and political consciousness, it also engendered a desire to be associated with the British. Such was Rhodes's charm that to some Cape Afrikaners he became a political hero, even an idol. ... Tamarkin successfully shows that the… Read more

"In many ways the Transvaal is a microcosm of the southern African subcontinent, positioned astride the Tropic of Capricorn and at the junction between the tropical savannas and the temperate grasslands, fringed on the west by the arid, flat Kalahari and cleaved in the east by the wet, mountainous, forested Drakensberg escarpment. Because of this rich array of habitats, a rich diversity of birds of prey is to be found in the Transvaal; no less than 62 different species have been recorded here. A growing awareness that many of these have become scarce in recent times, not only in the Transvaal but throughout southern… Read more

"In search of direction, Jeffrey Tayler left a comfortable but unsatisfying existence in Moscow for a taste of adventure. Seduced by Victorian explorers' tales of derring-do, he decided to embark on an expedition to the Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaire), deep in Africa's heart of darkness. Leaving the capital, Kinshasa, on a barge teeming with merchants, deck-hands, prostitutes, families and fishermen, Tayler heads up the Congo river towards Kisangani, 1,100 miles away. Then, at the end of a journey which would have made a book in itself, the real test began - a descent of the river's longest navigable stretch in a hand-carved pirogue ..." .

Spine gilt dull; fore-edge of upper board very slightly damp-stained; endpapers foxed; sporadic light foxing; pages unopened. Good to very good condition. "William Bourne, of Gravesend, by trade a gunner, was a successful writer of a new type of textbook. Neither a scholar nor of gentle birth, both of which were regarded as the prerequisites of authorship in the sixteenth century, when scientific books were expected to appear only in universities and to be read only by those fluent in Latin, Bourne nevertheless produced a whole series of technical manuals, written in English for the artisans and craftsmen of his own class. A Regiment for the Sea, which forms the core of the volume, is perhaps the earliest technical manual written by an Englishman. It is not simply his rules for navigation, for… Read more

"Living among both [the Basuto, and the Dutch in the Orange Free State] he adopted the maxim 'Put yourself in his place before passing judgement upon him'. This attitude is central to any subsequent appraisal one makes of the book's worth as a guide to the life and times it recounts. Mythology, which so frequently masquerades as history, is not Dr. Taylor's line. He neither gilds the lily nor indulges in vulgar prejudice. Though there is a certain degree of the old man's typical nostalgia for the prelapsarian innocence of the past - particularly in… Read more

"When the Grosvenor ran aground on the treacherous coast of south-east Africa, an astonishing number of her crew and passengers, including women and children, reached the shore safely. But the castaways found themselves hundreds of miles from the nearest European outpost - and utterly ignorant of the people among whom they found themselves." Ian Thomson writes in 'Independent on Sunday': "A deftly reconstructed slice of high seas drama ... A marvellous account of Europeans adrift in 1780s Africa, as well as a dark parable of the rat-like behaviour of marooned human beings." .
