(Pretoria: Briza Publications, 1999) 1875093184. 210 x 148 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. 193; monochrome illustrations. Fine condition. "Many of South Africa's politicians, sportsmen and women, musicians, actors and actresses, television personalities, businessmen and even criminals, are household names. Very few of our scientists are well-known to the public. This, in spite of the fact that they include some of the most enterprising and dedicated individuals in the country, that their work is often fascinating and exciting, and that it is of enormous benefit to our country and to science in general. As unofficial ambassadors, they travel around the world, making friends for, and generating goodwill towards, South Africa. They do not deserve to be ignored. This book introduces a mere handful of them. What sort of people are they? What are their backgrounds? Were they bright kids? Why are they interested in science? What motivates them? What are their secrets of success?… Read More

Very good condition. Afrikaans text. 'Menige ywerige hengelaar het al sy moses teëgekom in die waters van Valsbaai, en telkens word daar sonder sukses weer huiswaarts gekeer. Dit het André van den Berg laat dink: "Hoekom moet ander so baie moeite doen met so min welslae, terwyl ek altyd sukses behaal?" Angevuur deur hierdie idee het hy nou 'n helder, eenvoudige en nuttige uiteensetting van die hengelkuns geskryf om talle hengelaars van frustrasie te verlos. … Vir diegene wat weet waar, hoe en wanneer om te hengel, is Valsbaai 'n hengelaarsparadys, maar soos enige ander stryd verg dit voorbereiding, kennis en ondervinding as jy nie bedroë daarvan wil afkom nie. Met Kom hengel in Valsbaai as basis, is sukses binne die bereik van elke hengelaar. Daarna is… Read More

In 1942, when D.F. Malherbe warned him to write less, he replied: 'I do not have the time'. And his daughter confirms that he continued to write assiduously every day between lectures and meetings. It was probably precisely this frenzied activity that caused him gradually to withdraw from the world of experience into a 'world of words', even though the gift of the clear, direct word often evaded him, despite his admiration for Flaubert's mastery of this art." - André P. Brink, in DSAB IV, p. 685. .

And many of them never catch anything at all. "Why need they go to all this trouble for so little reward", thought André van den Berg, "when I always succeed?" With this thought in mind he came to Irvin and Johnson's Cape Town office with his idea - a simple, handy and clear record of his own expertise to take the frustration and disappointment out of angling. ... this manual on False Bay is the result.' .

(Johannesburg: Jonathan Ball Publishers, 1999) 1868420930. 220 x 150 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. 349. Fine condition. "The Anglo-Boer War was a tragic, fascinating and complex historical event. It saw the end of a century, a reign, a way of life and was in many respects the curtain-raiser to the twentieth century, providing a foretaste of what have become all too familiar horrors over the last hundred years: the mass involvement of civilian populations in war; concentration camps, and guerilla warfare. It is now a hundred years since the outbreak of the war and we commemorate with A Century of Anglo-Boer War Stories - an anthology of stories and poetry written by Afrikaners, Englishmen and also black South Africans, who explore the trauma of the time and place from their own varied perspectives. They probe fascinating aspects of human resilience as revealed in time of war and are diverse, entertaining and moving. But above all, the stories have been selected for the quality of the… Read More
