(Strange Collection, 1168; Doke, p. 252; SABIB 4, p. 703) Uncommon title: OCLC finds just the North-West University Library copy. "As regards books in Zulu, there are many to be had, and some of them are excellent. The knowledge they impart is without doubt of great service in many cases. But I think they will of only limited service to beginners and to junior pupils. One fault is that they presume some previous knowledge or insight on the part of their readers, such as very often does not exist. Again, they have always seemed to me to fail in not being sufficiently full in the explanation of difficult points, and also to fail in not being graduated carefully and easily, so as to render it possible that progress may be at… Read more

Dustwrapper slightly worn and soiled to edges, with lamination partially lifting; code to dustwrapper's spine panel and to front free endpaper; ink stamp to copyright page and final text page; light foxing to endpapers. Very good, in a fair to good dustwrapper. "All his life Dr. Wager has maintained his interest in his unusual hobby of delving into the life histories of the South African Frogs. ... The book is lavishly illustrated, and even if one is not particularly interested in frogs, the reader cannot fail to be attracted by the hundred monochrome and eighty coloured pictures. Animals are notoriously hard to photograph for they will seldom co-operate, stay still, face the right direction, eat or call, and immediately attempt to retreat to a safe refuge. Dr. Wager's skill and patience are shown in… Read more

Soos met minerale, is daar goeie jare en insinkings - niks anders nie as met die goudstormlope van die 19de eeu.

Right now there are certain species whose survival is threatened; the Black Rhino, the Cheetah, the elephants of Kaokoveld and Knysna, the Cape Vulture and the floral kingdom of the south western Cape." .

"The most elementary of trade union principles demands that workers, irrespective of race or colour, shall have the recognised right to organise and to bargain collectively for the improvement of conditions of employment and other standards of life. The time is long overdue for the trade union forces to overcome any reaction in their ranks, to boldly follow the path of democracy and progress and to fight for the establishment in our country of internationally accepted trade union rights for all workers. Should they fail to do this they will be helping in their own destruction and in the collapse of the living standards and working conditions so painfully… Read more
