"In search of direction, Jeffrey Tayler left a comfortable but unsatisfying existence in Moscow for a taste of adventure. Seduced by Victorian explorers' tales of derring-do, he decided to embark on an expedition to the Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaire), deep in Africa's heart of darkness. Leaving the capital, Kinshasa, on a barge teeming with merchants, deck-hands, prostitutes, families and fishermen, Tayler heads up the Congo river towards Kisangani, 1,100 miles away. Then, at the end of a journey which would have made a book in itself, the real test began - a descent of the river's longest navigable stretch in a hand-carved pirogue ..." .

Very good condition. 'The story of the struggle for the freedom of the press in South Africa is well known, but the broadsheet "Facts connected with the Stopping of the Press" is such a rare document that its re-publication is bound to arouse great interest. ... A handbill was ... posted outside the Printing Office announcing that "Facts connected with the stopping of the Press and the censorship of the Fiscal" would be published the following Monday morning at 8 a.m. Greig arranged his "Statement of Facts", and his comments on the "insult offered to an innocent and meritorious editor". This was all set in type, ready to be thrown off and published, but Somerset was determined it should not appear, so he sent the Fiscal on Sunday afternoon with a warrant to seal up the press.… Read more

Spine panel sunned; front free endpaper removed; tape marks and some foxing to endpapers. Absent front free endpaper notwithstanding, good to very good condition. "Dan Judson, whose adventurous youth in Cape Town during the stirring days of the old Cape Colony makes fascinating reading, is perhaps best remembered for his leadership in the Mazoe Patrol episode of the Mashona Rebellion of 1896. This was but one aspect of a full life which centred around his work as a telegraphist when this medium was the foremost means of communication. At the age of 29, he was appointed to reconstruct, reorganise and take charge of the Telegraph in Mashonaland. The accounts of his field work, particularly the many dangerous jobs undertaken in maintaining communications during the Rebellion, are of great interest. He played… Read more

Ex-library copy with reinforced wraps, covered with clear adhesive plastic; stamps and label remnants to endpapers and prelims. Good condition. "Lesotho, once 'the granary of the Free State and part of the Cape Colony', eventually became an impoverished labour reserve. Mass labour migration destroyed family life in Lesotho as well as in Botswana, Swaziland and the Bantustans within South Africa. Why did the migrant labour system not end with political independence in these countries? This fundamental question is examined by Colin Murray in his penetrating historical study of Lesotho." .

"So spontaan soos die deelname van duisende luisteraars aan sy humorprogram Flink uit die Vere, so spontaan het die gedagte van 'n huldeblyk aan Fanus Rautenbach ontstaan. Fanus is vandag die naam wat Afrikaanse humor vergestalt. Fanus is die man wat 'n volk geleer het om vir homself te kan lag; wat reeds 'n kwarteeu lank die spanning oor buitelandse dreigemente en binnelandse woelinge met sy kwinkslae ontlaai. Deur die gesproke en geskrewe woord het hy 'n bydrae tot taalskepping en volkskultuur gemaak wat hom 'n enige plek in die geledere van Afrikaanse woordkunstenaars besorg." .

"This is a book mainly about ships which will not be seen anymore - old tramps which wound up on the scrapheap, fast freighters which were victims of wartime casualty, and others which were lost through shipwreck. Many were declared redundant. Since the demise of so many regular callers has created a great yearning among ship-lovers for a record of some of the great events of the past, this volume about cargo carrying vessels is of particular interest. The book is a successor to Salt in my Blood, and Ships that Pass, published by the same author in the 1970's and sold out in months.

"Since 1956 - the year of Suez - events in Arabia have moved fast; so fast that the old world of Lawrence and Doughty, of Philby and Bertram Thomas and Thesiger has been replaced, in a sense, by a new Arabia - an Arabia uninterested in that long, romantic love-affair between herself and the Occident which for so many generations engaged the imagination and the heart of Western man. All the major events of the past ten years ... reflect or have created radically new relationships within Arabia and between Arabia and the rest of the world.

'Gladys Stauffacher writes about an Africa that has been her backyard since the late thirties. Married to Claudon Stauffacher, whose parents' lives are featured in this narrative, she has served in and visited many of the places she writes about. During their last term on the field, the Stauffachers pioneered a new station in one of the few primitive areas left in Kenya. Her own words are an excellent summation of what missionary life is all about. The story of missions is the story of young people and the young in heart, venturing into the unknown. It is the story of romance in the setting of a strange land, and joy or sorrow in lonely places.' .

Near-fine condition. "William Edward Moore was expected to follow his father into military service but his life turned upside down at the age of nine when his father died. He was taken under the wing of the Chief Justice of the Cape, Sir John Wylde, who encouraged the young boy to pursue a careeer in law. Moore repaid the generosity of his benefactor by having an outstanding legal career that was to last for sixty-four years. Having settled in the tiny hamlet of Papendorp, he became passionately involved in its welfare and development. He was the driving force that saw Papendorp later become the municipality of Woodstock and he was its first mayor. ... The Father of Woodstock traces the settlement of the Cape from its 17th century beginnings under Dutch rule through the 19th century when the… Read more

"In mid-2008, after nearly three decades of increasingly tyrannical rule, Robert Mugabe, the eighty-four-year-old ruler, met his politburo. He had just lost an election. But instead of conceding power, he was persuaded to launch a brutal campaign of terror to cower his citizens. Journalist and author Peter Godwin was one of the few observers to slip into the country and bear witness to the terrifying period that Zimbabweans call, simply, The Fear. Following on from his compelling and moving memoirs, Mukiwa and When a Crocodile Eats the Sun, this is a personal journey through the country Peter Godwin grew up in and knows so well - a landscape and a people, grotesquely altered, laid waste by a raging despot." .
