(Cape Town: Don Nelson, 1977) 090923826X. 8vo; original black boards; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 227; black-and-white plates.

Good. "Handsome, charismatic, brave and daring - these were some of the qualities that made HO de Villiers the world's most exciting rugby fullback in the late 1960s, but if there was one special quality above all others that made him South Africa's most talked about rugby player of his era, it was almost certainly his genius for succeeding gloriously by defying the traditionalists and doing precisely what they said he shouldn't be doing." .

Some foxing to reverse of dustwrapper and flaps, also to edges and endpapers. Very good condition. "Like Gibbon's Decline and Fall, Hakluyt's collection has been unjustly neglected because of its enormous length. Many abridgements are too short to do justice to the variety and scope of the original, while others concentrate on its historical or economic interest. The present selection conveys all the variety of the original while emphasizing the extraordinary human interest of the documents." .

Not only will yachtsmen and all boat handlers find this work of use, but also those who dive, fishermen and researchers will benefit from it. How many marine archaeologists know the craft of navigation and are thus able to pin-point with scientific accuracy where and at what depth their sites are located? This publication covers coastal navigation, international shapes, lights and sound signals as well as radio procedures, meteorology and tides relating to the South African coast. It will [not] only promote safety at sea but will also help boat handlers pass their skipper's exams as is now… Read More

Fair condition only. "This book begins with standard Waugh farce: a pin-headed society wife, Brenda Last, takes a lover to occupy her afternoons. But the effect on her husband Tony and son John is devastating, and the book moves quickly from farce to tragedy. Waugh never abandons the ridiculous - no one else would have placed his hero in impenetrable tropical jungle, the slave of a megalomaniac who makes him read Edwin Drood aloud - but he also writes with compassion for his characters, involving us in their loneliness as his shallower novels never do." - McLeish, Bloomsbury Good Reading Guide. .

The name is instantly recognised the world over. His iconic status rivals that of South Africa's greatest all-time folk heroes. This biography is an attempt to expose what made Hansie the man he was, and to trace some of the tender lines of a remarkable physical, emotional and spiritual journey cut short. Covering his life story, it is important to know that Hansie's entire close family and circle of friends supported this book and their views and insights into his life form the basis of it. To ensure a well-balanced story some of Hansie's harshest, most outspoken critics were also interviewed. Hansie, of course, was magnificent. But like all men and women, he was flawed, vexed by ambivalence. It is the marring of greatness that makes for such a compelling human story.… Read More

"But the detail of his day-to-day experiences in captivity does imply remarkable powers of recall; he had been born and grown up not far from the frontier, in daily contact with the many Indians held by and serving the white man; he had had nine years' schooling with the Jesuits in Concepción, with Arauco just across the river.
