Very good condition, in a modest dustwrapper. Afrikaans text. ' "Arbeid in vuurhitte wat die stempel dra van deeglikheid, want die reis is ver en die wêreld onherbergsaam." Aan die arbeid van D. F. Malherbe bring ons hulde - in die woord waarvan hy self meester was, in die beeld van sy wêreld waardeur ons tot groter insig kom van 'n onverskrokke landoopmaker, redenaar, skrywer, uitdraer van die lewende woord. Sy eie woorde sê dit raak genoeg, soos dié gedenkalbum sal getuig, so sy nagelate werk, en die pas verskene Twee nagelate novelles en Die slagmes en ander nagelate verhale, wat spesiaal vir Malherbejaar gereed gemaak is en nou vir die eerste keer in boekvorm verskyn. Hierin sal ons wel ontdek die waarheid in Malherbe se eie woord: Wie vir sy tyd genoegsaam was, hy… Read more

Dustwrapper a little rubbed and tanned; light browning to edges; some annotations to rear free endpaper. Good to very good condition. Afrikaans text. 'In hierdie omvattende, ryk geskakeerde werk skep prof. J.C. Kannemeyer 'n onvergeetlike beeld van die groot Afrikaanse digter "Dirk der duisende". Hy beskryf Opperman se boeiende lewensloop van plaasseun in Natal tot sy onbetwisbare posisie as doyen van die Afrikaanse letterkunde. Sy invloed op veral die Afrikaanse poësie, die rol wat hy agter die skerms gespeel het, sy vormende invloed op jong talente - dit word alles helder in hierdie boek uitgebeeld.' .

Good condition. Afrikaans text. (Nienaber I, p. 268) Overview of the work of J.F. van Oordt, a seminal figure in the development of Afrikaans folk literature, who wrote under the nom de plume of 'D'Arbez'. "Hierdie studie van mnr. Nienaber oor die lewe en werk van D'Arbez wil ek hiermee by die Afrikaanslesende publiek inlei. Die stof is nog intyds in Suid-Afrika en in Nederland versamel, omdat getuienis uit die eerste hand aangaande D'Arbez en sy lewenswerk skaars word. Verder is die boek van belang omdat dit die vraagstuk aan die orde stel volgens watter kriterium 'n kunswerk ingedeel moet word in die Afrikaanse letterkunde:… Read more

It is a remarkable story with few parallels in the field of commercial banking enterprise. Barclays Bank (Dominion, Colonial and Overseas), later to be known as Barclays Bank DCO, came into being by the amalgamation in 1925 of three banks, the oldest of which was the Colonial Bank, established in 1836.

"Jon Beer writes regular columns for both the Daily Telegraph Weekend section and for Trout and Salmon, Britain's leading game fishing magazine. 'There are,' he writes, 'two sorts of book about trout fishing. One sort has a title like "How to Catch Very Big Trout". This is the other sort of trout fishing book.' In other words, it's a book about fly-fishing that doesn't take itself too seriously and will be rapturously welcomed by all those who fish for pleasure rather than for trophies. ... The great joy of Jon Beer's writing is that he can convey the full flavour of a day's fishing in a way that enables readers… Read more

(Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood, 1935). Crown 8vo; original red cloth with gilt lettering to spine; no dustwrapper; pp. xii + 85 + (ii). Spine sunned and a little mottled; corners a bit bumped; slightest rippling to cloth of upper cover's bottom edge; earlier owner's name signed on front free endpaper; trace of fishmothing to endpapers; moderate foxing throughout. Good. 'Though he disclaimed that his "Dark Folk" poems (1935) were "translations or imitations of native verse", Slater managed to capture something of the feel and idiom of traditional Xhosa song, as in the lovely "Lament for a Dead Cow" ... and also to convey a sense of a vanishing rural culture, once again in terms of the imagery and conceptual world of the Xhosa, as in "Milking Kraal" ...

Description:
(Leipzig, E. Bidder, 1882). ("Gedanken aus und nach der Schrift" S. 131) contempory cloth-back textured paper over boards, defective, pp. 72. Heavy browning and foxing. Poor. The Hermannsburg Missionary Society grew out of a religious revival in the region of Lüneberg during the mid-19th Century. The Society sent its first missionaries to East Africa but these were denied permission to preach in Gallaland and proceeded to Natal where they established a mission on the borders of Zululand. By the end of the century, 124 Hermannsburg missionaries had established themselves in South Africa. The item on offer here concerns itself with theological matters; it may be a critique of the Society and its approach - black letter script rather hard to read. .
