Wrappers ever so slightly rubbed; merest trace of foxing to reverse of cover. Very good condition. Afrikaans text. "J.J. Kicherer was lid van die eerste groepie sendelinge wat deur die Londense Sendinggenootskap uitgestuur is na die Kaap: hy het onder die Boesmans aan die Sakrivier oorkant die koloniale grens gewerk, en die sending onder die Korana en Basters van die Transoranje begin. Sy kortstondige eietydse roem was egter te danke aan sy geslaagde werk in die Bastergemeente op die stasie Zakrivier en die besoek wat hy in 1803-04 met drie sogenaamde 'Hottentotte' aan Europa gebring het. In 1806 het Kicherer predikant van die Hollandse Kerk op Graaff-Reinet geword, maar gedurende die sewe jaar van sy kort sendingloopbaan het hy met 'n wye verskeidenheid van bevolkingsgroepe te make gekry, en sy lewensverhaal bevat 'n groot hoeveelheid inligting oor… Read more

English translation by Michiel Heyns. 8vo; original purple boards, lettered in white on spine; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 710, incl. index; plates; ribbon markers. Fine condition. "This biography of JM Coetzee is the first to be written with the co-operation of Coetzee himself. With access to the writer, JC Kannemeyer was able to establish hitherto unsuspected connections between the writer's life and work. ... Kannemeyer candidly but sensitively describes Coetzee's relations with this parents, his wife and children, his colleagues and publishers. His account reveals the joy and also the sorrow that marked some of these relationships and how he was able to incorporate these experiences into situations, figures or motifs in his novels. ... After Kannemeyer it will not be possible to read Coetzee without an awareness of the deeply personal history and the social and political circumstances from which Coetzee's work has… Read more

Williams has been blessed with enough talents for half a dozen careers. Now a successful doctor who intends to specialize in sports injuries, his first success was as a singer, much in demand for his rendering of 'O for the wings of a dove' which he gave with an innocence many would not associate with the aggressive performances he was later to give on the rugby field. At seventeen he won the Wimbledon Junior Tennis title, by which time he was also playing in the Glamorgan Youth Orchestra as violinist. At nineteen, after learning his skills as a rugby player in the harsh school of Welsh rugby, he won his first full Welsh cap against Scotland in 1969. Since then he has gone from strength to strength, so that now only Barry John and Gareth Edwards are better known to rugby followers throughout the… Read more

To examine that fame and to look again at the successes and adversities of his wonderful career as a cricketer is to be conscious more and more of the impalpability of his kind of art." .

(Johannesburg, Jonathan Ball, in association with Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1986). Laminated pictorial dustwrapper, scuffed, pp. xii + 284, a few plates. Long gift inscription on the front free endpaper, edges slightly soiled. 'An academic - even a visionary - by nature, he felt impelled to demonstrate that he was a man of action. Cosmopolitan in his political awareness, he constantly sought refuge in South Africa. A scientific humanist by choice, he was a Christian by conviction. This book examines how Smuts struggled with these dilemmas. It looks at his involvement in moves to unite the Boers and British of South Africa, to strenghten the links which bound together the member-states of the old British Commonwealth, to build a worldwide version of that Commonwealth by means of a League of Nations organization. This was the realm of ideas in which Smuts was most successful, as consultant to Louis Botha at home, to Lloyd George and Winston Churchill amongst British prime ministers and to Woodrow… Read more

'Jan Domm was as upright and noble a specimen of White Man as you could hope to meet. He believed, with a belief even stronger perhaps than that held by the ordinary good citizen, that the Government, all-wise and all-benevolent, could make no mistakes. So when he was re-classified as Coloured, Jan Domm enthusiastically accepted the change in his status and bore its consequences with humility, pride and praise for the wonders of racial discrimination. True, he lost his wife, his children, money, job and sundry physical faculties. But to what a Cause!' .

"Piet Meiring het met tientalle vooraanstaande Afrikaners wat Smuts geken het gesels om antwoorde vir al die tergende vrae te probeer vind: Het Smuts sy volk werklik afgesterf? Het hy alles prysgegee wat voorheen vir hom dierbaar was? Het hy 'n Engelsman geword? Anders gestel: Was hy in die eerste plek 'n patriot, 'n egoïs of 'n ryksgesinde? Die antwoorde wat die skrywer van mense en uit Smuts se eie boeke en briewe gekry het, is nog nie voorheen so gepubliseer nie en dwing die leser om opnuut na hierdie gevierde staatsman en intellektuele reus te kyk." .

Afrikaans text. "Jan Christiaan Smuts was 'n soldaat, staatsman, intellektueel en een van Suid-Afrika se grootste leiers. Tog word daar vandag min oor hom gepraat of geskryf, al beleef ons tans skynbaar 'n leierskapsvakuum. In Afrikaner sonder Grense voer Richard Steyn aan dat ons hierdie indrukwekkende kryger-staatsman se lewe en denke moet herbesoek, omdat daar soveel te leer is uit sy merkwaardige prestasies. Dié hoogs leesbare boek ondersoek onder meer Smuts se rol as politieke leier en as adviseur van wêreldleiers, sy geestelike en intellektuele lewe en sy verhoudings met vroue. Sy unieke bydraes op 'n verskeidenheid ander terreine, insluitend botanie, bewaring en filosofie, word ook bespreek. Afrikaner sonder Grense skram egter nie weg van die teenstrydige in Smuts nie.
