Dustwrapper lightly sunned on spine panel; front free endpaper removed; earlier owner's name signed on half-title; trace of foxing and browning. Good. "Fascinated from childhood by the enigmatic figure of her uncle, a Catholic missionary in Africa who returned only for short leaves bearing unfamiliar presents, Lieve Joris set out on board the Fabiolaville to the former Belgian Congo, the modern Zaïre of the ubiquitous President Mobutu. The author describes equally vividly the remnants of Zaïre's colonial past, the mission stations and the white expatriate community - many of whom ignore as far as possible the country in which they live - and the realities of modern Zaïre. From the chaos of Kinshasa to the remote villages of the interior, she falls for the charm of the… Read more

Ex-library copy with label on front pastedown and code on spine; some hand-stamps and codes inside; scattered moderate foxing. Good condition. "The animal chosen as an example of what a hound should be is the Badminton Potentate . . . As a contrast to him the picture of a bad hound is given, his defects being purposely emphasised in order that they may at once strike the observer. Such a nightmare of a hound is not to be discovered in any hunting field, but by a course of injudicious breeding he might conceivably be produced. From head to stern he is all that a hound should not be. His shapeless head is joined by a thick neck to a shockingly clumsy pair of shoulders, which have no liberty of action about them. His legs are weak and crooked; he has the reverse of those 'round cat feet' which Somerville properly desires. He is flat-sided and slack in the loins;… Read more

"Invigorating mountain air and wild scenery impart a special charm to grouse shooting. To see good dogs working over a wide range of heather, carefully quartering the likely ground and backing each other with stiffened limbs and tails at each steady point, is delightful to a sportsman, the more so as the use of dogs in the pursuit of partridges is more and more rare. Good lungs, good muscle, good nerve, and good sight are all more or less essential to any large measure of success." .

"I feel some apology is due to what are, after all, perhaps, the great body of fishermen, for the second part of the title of the present volume. The term 'coarse fish' has been adopted because it seems to be that most generally used and understood, and, therefore, best calculated to convey readily a correct idea of the contents of this essay. Even whilst employing the expression, however, I must record my protest against it. What is there coarse, for example, about the perch of gorgeous scaling, armed cap-à-pie like a paladin of old, and glowing with half the colours of the rainbow? Or the 'arrowy dace,' almost as mettlesome, and perhaps even more… Read more

"People who are only acquainted with the comparatively rough methods of professional fishermen may be disposed to declare that there is no sport to be obtained in the sea. But those who do me the honour of perusing the following pages can hardly fail to be convinced that salt water is as sport-yielding as fresh, and that there are many kinds of sea fish so wary and such powerful swimmers that in their capture the knowledge and skill of the sportsman are all important." .

"Hughes-Owens was powerfully aware that the last memories of traditional rural life were fading before his eyes (he thanks 'many elderly parishioners, some of whom, alas, are no longer with us'), even if he was enough a man of the 1960s and 'Progress' to write approvingly that the returning First World War veterans 'had lost that old parochialism which had been the besetting fault of Bampton folk for so long'. Hence the title of the book. But it is a slightly misleading title: even if the recent memories which Hughes-Owens recorded give it its most enduring interest, the work is in fact a history of Bampton through the ages." .

Aangesien die omstandighede waarin die naturelle vandag verkeer, baie verskil van die vroeëre toestande, vind daar ook 'n groot verandering plaas in hul kulturele lewe, en die jeuglewe soos hier beskrywe is al in groot mate iets van die verlede. Iets daarvan vind 'n mens nog net in die naturellestreke. Baie word vandag op dorpe en in stede groot en hul jeuglewe vertoon nou nie juis die beeld soos in hierdie boekie geskets word nie." .

(Schapera M73) "A valuable examination of the development and effects of 'frontier' policies." - Schapera. "In this book the South African problem is shown, by its historical setting, to have been from the beginning a problem of the possession of land, and a matter of hard economics. To say that there is a clash between the interests of Bantu, Boer and Briton is but to indicate a specific manifestation of a world-wide conflict of races. While the closest parallel is perhaps to be found in the Southern States, similar conditions may be said ipso facto to arise in any modern state (e.g. Kenya and Southern Rhodesia) where widely divergent races meet. Native policy in South Africa, too long… Read more

These tales and recollections, mostly from Bar members now in their 80s, show what an extraordinary time it was for lawyers. Also, remarkably, how much is of relevance to lawyers practising today." .
