On his finger he placed a ring with a diamond, one noted by a clerk after his death as "Given him by the late Queen."

Wrappers very slightly foxed. Very good condition. Head of the Department of History at Rhodes University, Professor Winifred A. Maxwell presented this first Dugmore Memorial Lecture as a prelude to the 1820/1970 Celebrations in Grahamstown, drawing attention to the resources available in researching the 1820 Settlers and their world. "The idea behind my own lecture this evening was a simple one, namely to try and show what a wealth of material lies unexplored and how the investigation of it leads to discoveries. Taken singly, these are often small discoveries but they prompt that constant reconsideration which lies at the back of all advancement of learning." .

Very good condition. "This document - The Reconstruction and Development Programme (RDP) - is the end of one process and the beginning of another. The document is the result of many months of consultation within the ANC, its Alliance partners and other mass organisations in the wider civil society. This consultation has resulted in the policy framework contained in this document. The process now underway is that of developing the detailed policy and legislative programme necessary to implement the RDP. In preparing the document, and in taking it forward, we are building on the tradition of the Freedom Charter. In 1955, we actively involved people and their organisations in articulating their needs and aspirations. Once again we have consulted widely. However, in 1994 we are about to assume… Read more
