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

'I was ... motivated by the fact that existing backpackers' books are poor in their treatment of Lesotho, covering it almost as an afterthought. Lesotho is a beautiful and fascinating country, an ideal place for the back packer, and deserves better. And so "A Backpacker's Guide to Lesotho" was born, and will, I hope, provide a basis for many enjoyable days of travelling.' .

Description:
(Bampton: The Friends of St. Mary's, Bampton, 2005). Republished with new illustrations. 258 x 210 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. 124; contemporary photographs. Near fine condition. "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." .

"Ek het probeer om in hierdie boekie 'n algemene oorsig te gee van die jeuglewe van die Bantoe in Suid-Afrika. 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." .

Boards very slightly bumped and rubbed; some foxing to edges, endpapers and outermost leaves. Good condition. (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

Carpmael, of Blackheath, led such a successful invasion of the powerful Rugby territories of Yorkshire and the Midlands that immediately afterwards it was decided to form a representative touring club and give it a name dignified by the famous victory of Arminius over Varus and his legions "somewhere in Germany" about two thousand years ago. The writer does not pretend to know whether the adoption of such a compelling name was due to a sense of history or to the unfailing instinct of men who serve… Read More

All these developments are incorporated by James Byrom in this fully revised edition. ...
