Description:
(London, Hodder and Stoughton, 1890, First edition). 8vo; original olive cloth gilt; pp. viii + 488, incl. index; tissue-guarded frontis. portrait; folding map. Boards somewhat spotted, bumped, and worn at extremities; hand-stamp on verso of frontis. Very good internally; good condition overall. The biography of Alexander M. Mackay, pioneering missionary to Uganda, written by his sister. "I take this powerful body of native Christians in the heart of Africa - who prefer exile for the sake of their faith to serving a monarch indifferent or hostile to their faith - as more substantial evidence of the work of Mackay than any number of imposing structures clustered together and called a Mission station would be." - Henry Morton Stanley. .

Lower cover very slightly rubbed. Very good condition. "Ann Hamilton, as the wife of a missionary artisan, was not expected to be more than an assistant to her husband, and when she tried to establish a wider field of activity for herself, she speedily incurred the powerful and effective hostility of both Dr Philip and Robert Moffat. ... [Her] life ... with its limitations and frustrations ... is to be regarded as typical of the lot of women on the mission field in the early nineteenth century". .

(Pietermaritzburg, Association for Rural Advancement, 1999). 244 x 169 mm; laminated wraps; maps; tables; monochrome illustrations in text. Corners of cover very slightly curled. Very good condition. "AFRA came into being amidst the organisational bannings and deaths in detention that marked South Africa after the Soweto revolt. Memory was one of the first weapons of the organisation - its connection to a tradition of resistance to forced removals in Natal by the Liberal Party and the African National Congress until both these bodies were suppressed in the Sixties. From 1979 till now, AFRA has re-established a practice of resolute opposition to injustices perpetrated against rural people and, with growing confidence in post-apartheid South Africa, participation in the fight for a better life for all in rural areas. It intends to continue that work, though this time, it is hoped, in a stronger partnership with government and other parts of civil society." .

"Strictly speaking, the tribal people of Southern Africa have ceased to exist: so much is changing, so much has already been lost. Dr Martin West and Jean Morris have collaborated to create an image in words and pictures of what remains of the traditional African way of life in South Africa. All the major groups are described; their customs, rituals and dress are shown and the meanings discussed. This is a record of a way of life centuries old but now, inexorably, drawing to an end. It may well be that at some point in the future, all that will remain of this proud heritage will be its oblique reflection in the new… Read more

(Nienaber I, p. 180) Abraham Paul Kriel (1850-1928) was a minister, "particularly remembered as the founder of the large orphanage which today bears his name ... He did a great deal in particular for mission work, evangelisation and poor-relief. He appointed the first social workers under the supervision of the [Dutch Reformed] church council and bought a hotel which he converted into a youth hostel. While on a visit to Europe he acquainted himself with the orphanages of George Muller in Bristol and of Quarrier near Glasgow as well as with Bodelschwingh's institution for epileptics at Bielefeld, Germany." - DSAB… Read more

Dustwrapper's spine panel sunned; earlier owners' bookplate (Faith and Walter Middelmann) to front pastedown. Near fine condition. "De Smidt was a topographical draughtsman of the first order and many of his picturesque South African landscapes and panoramic views reflect his arduous journeys as a surveyor. His works are imbued with romantic sentiments largely as a result of an early visit to Europe and the appeal of the sublime grandeur of Switzerland, and he was a keen painter of scenes in England, Scotland and Wales. In this book there is a catalogue of paintings known to the author, of which 26 are reproduced in colour and 30 in black and white. There are a further 47 illustrations in black and white." .

(Doke, p. 51 [1st edition]; Strange Collection 1132 [Earlier edition]; Murphy & Goff 1099 [Later edition]) "The Roman Catholic Church ... has a different approach to mission work from that of the Protestant churches, but nevertheless it is possible to include the work done at the Trappist monastery of Mariannhill, near Pinetown, Natal, since 1883, under mission presses. Publications in languages as diverse as Polish and Zulu have emanated from this press, and during the first year of the monastery, a vernacular catechism, some broadsides in English and German among which were some hymns." - Anna H.

He called at the Cape on his way to the East in 1673 and was there from the 15th October to 10th November. He gives an account of Table Bay and environs but the main interest of the report centres around the description of the Hottentots and secondarily the natural history of the Cape. Most of the information about the Hottentots was obtained from Eva, a Hottentot girl wo had been brought up in Jan van Riebeek's household and who could speak Dutch and Portuguese. The pages reproduced are extracted from Vol. IV "Churchill's Collection of Voyages", 1732 Edition. The original account was published in… Read more
