Description:
New Jersey: Prentice-Hall, 1962 First edition 1962 collectible description of four Afrrican countries: Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana visited by E.R. Braithwaite in 1961. It is noteworthy that South Africa was not included in his itinerary, although he did visit in 1973 and wrote a book about it, Honorary White, named after the status granted him by South Africa so that he could be issued a visa. Braithwaite was born in Guyana to Oxford educated parents. The only job he could find after service with the R.A.F.and a post-war Phd in physics was as a teacher in an eastend London school. His experiences there were the foundation for his not uncontroversial 1959 novel, To Sir, With Love which was made into a film in 1967. Very Good dust jacket, unclipped, with original $4.95 price tag, somewhat faded and showing some surface wear and rubbing at corners and spine top and tail, subtitled, ``a compassionate portrayal of ermerging Africa by a non-African negro.` Very good ++ tan boards shown very slight… Read more

Description:
E Rutherford, New Jersey, U.S.A.: New Amer Library, 1987 1st Paperback edition, 5th Printing Plume Paperbacks. "Kaffir," a disparaging epithet used in South Africa to refer to persons of colour is an arabic word meaning "infidel." This 1986 autobiography by the tennis player Mark Mathabane describes his life in the slums outside of Johannesberg under apartheid. It was a landmark publication at the time, and was added to a number of U.S. high school curriculums. It still reads well. Mathabane was able to attend university in the U.S. due to his tennis skills and interventions on his behalf by some mentors. It is apparent from his writing that he is intelligent and capable in many ways. Who knows, even under the present regime how he would have fared if he had not had the tennis skills and the mentors. An important reminder of the obstacles that face many of the world's peoples. The book contains a pictorial section with black and white photos. It does not appear to have been… Read more

Description:
New York: Rand McNally, 1950 1950 "E" edition of this Newbery award winner for 1949, complete with gold foil medallion on dust jacket. Although not in prime condition, this is still a very attractive and impressive book. Dust jacket is clipped and is beautifully illustrated by Wesley Dennis. Upper edge has some chipping, but damage is marginal enough that the dramatic horse's head and horse and rider on the rear panel in the midst of a desert storm still have impact. The red boards are water stained on the edge of both the front and rear board, gilt horse's head and spine lettering are still bright. Decorative endpapers, the front inside cover has prior owner's bookplate, a sand bordered scene of mounted indian buffalo hunters, which seems somewhat compatible. This book came from the estate of a serious horsewoman with a fine collection of books on horses and riding, and is in very good condition, clean and crisp, save the water damage to the boards and the wear on the upper dj… Read more
