(Natal Education Department, 1975). 240 x 180 mm; original wraps; pp. (iv) + 116; numerous photographs. Inner wraps a little browned; few small creases. Very good condition. Chiefly Afrikaans text. "This special issue of N.E.O.N. magazine commemorates the century 1875-1975, during which Afrikaans became a living language in South Africa. The articles contained in it deal more particularly with the growth of Afrikaans in Natal itself. The writers, many of them authorities on Afrikaans language and literature, have brought forward much valuable information. They have also not overlooked the contribution of distinguished journalists, editors, pioneers of radio, educationalists, drama producers, and others in the field of Afrikaans life and culture. ... I venture to predict that in the years to come students of Afrikaans will find N.E.O.N. 18 a useful compendium of significant facts concerning the language." - Preface. .

Very slightly rubbed; trace of foxing. Good condition. The essential field guide to the floristic treasures of South Africa's celebrated Namaqualand region. 'The first edition of Guide 1 covered both Namaqualand and Clanwilliam, a large expanse of country with an equally huge flora from which only the most prominent species could be selected. In fact, both regions are so rich and interesting botanically that ideally they each require separate guides. The new revised edition of Guide 1 therefore deals exclusively with Namaqualand. Many more species have been added and we feel confident that it will prove an even more useful field companion than the first edition.' .

(London, George Allen, 1912). Authorised Translation from the Norwegian by E. M. Cope. Original red cloth, upper board slightly buckled, stained, and worn, pp. xvi + 316, frontispiece portrait, plates. Owner's name on the front free endpaper, some foxing. Fair. Preface: 'Napoleon's son was not only King of Rome; from 23rd June to 3rd July 1815 he was Emperor of France. He was Prince of Parma and Duke of Reichstadt; he was also called "Le Fils de l'Homme," and "L' Aiglon." The story of the young French eagle who, mentally and bodily, came to grief in the Imperial castle of Vienna, has been touched up in many ways, for, as he was rarely seen but from a distance, it was easy to be mistaken in him, libellous reports were spread, and his actions misrepresented enough, to make him an object of hatred. I have tried to show him as he was with his friend, a pure and gifted youth, who promised to become a worthy son of a great father.' .

(Stanford, Stanford University Press, 1968). 8vo; original cloth, rather soiled; no dustwrapper; past owner's bookplate and signature on front endpapers; pp. xiv + 241, incl. index. Good condition. "Among the hundreds of books about Napoleon, none has treated in complete detail the story of his detention on British warships, shortly after the battle of Waterloo, while he awaited his fate at the hands of the British government. . . . This gap in the chronicle of Napoleon's career surprises us for several reasons. First, the incident is unique - one finds no denouement quite like it in accounts of the lives of other great men. Second, the drama of the few days during which Napoleon and the world waited for the announcement of what would be done with him can be felt even today. Finally, Napoleon's surrender to the English, his detention aboard the Bellerophon, and the eventual decision of the British government to confine him on St. Helena led to countless debates - few of which… Read more
