In this regard, he wrote: "The earth shall continue to be… Read more

(London: Longmans, 1898, Silver Library Edition). Crown 8vo; original burgundy buckram lettered in gilt on spine; gilt-ruled upper cover; pp. viii + 342 + 32; frontis. with tissue guard; title page vignette; plates. Cloth a bit stippled; earlier owner's bookplate to front pastedown; some spotting to page edges and outer leaves. Very good condition. (Mendelssohn I, p. 578: 1st edition) "An earlier statesman, impressed by the ironies of his task, once wittily remarked that if you wish to be misled about a country you should consult the man who lives there and speaks the language. In 1874 Lord Carnarvon, anxious to know South Africa, took this aphorism to heart. He chose a man who had never seen South Africa, and who spoke only one of its many languages, to be first his eyes and ears in South Africa and eventually his mouth as well. For a long period of years James Anthony Froude had devoted his energy and his eloquence to the history which others had made. For a brief time in South… Read more

'It is the lot of every writer to have their more recent books compared to their first, and it is a universal fact that they are "not so good". Actually, if you study the matter carefully, it will be found that the later books are just as bad as the first. When somebody once said to a famous editor that his paper isn't as good as it was, he replied, "It never was". One of the difficulties of a scribbler, such as I, is to please everybody. Each year I receive a very large number of letters from readers. Some say that they hope I will write more verse; others hope that I will write less. Some hope that I will continue to write in a light humorous way - others hope that I will write more serious stuff. And here I… Read more

"Withdrawn" and "Sold" ink stamps to half-title, otherwise near fine. "The number of international migrants, asylum-seekers and clandestine migrants is estimated at 120 million worldwide. It is believed that a further 2 million join this figure each year. To put it differently, 1 in every 114 people is displaced in the world today. Between 3 and 8 million illegal aliens are estimated to be within the borders of South Africa. 'Of Myths and Migration' seeks to explore the causes and effects of population displacement and seeks to arrive at policy-relevant conclusions. It investigates one aspect of the global migration crisis in a specific context - that of illegal immigration into South Africa - and places this in a broader regional security framework." .
