" ... the Gallery's collections of South African art are in all departments the most comprehensive in the country. Of these, the collection of South African graphic art is the most representative. Much of it has been shown in recent years as part of exhibitions of particular artists, of certain themes, of new acquisitions or just of random selections. This collection has now developed to the stage where it is possible to select about eighty works - the optimum number for a substantial exhibition but little over ten percent of the total print holdings - which together present a picture of South African printmaking since the beginning of this century. ... The exhibition includes work by most major graphic artists in the country, but has also been so selected that it illustrates the main techniques and trends of their work.… Read more

(Johannesburg, Ravan Press, 1974). Report of the Political Commission of the Study Project on Christianity in Apartheid Society. 225 x 164 mm; pictorial wraps; pp. (vi) + 252, incl. index. Wraps a little rubbed; slight curl to fore-edge of lower wrap; previous owner's discreet hand-stamp on half-title; half-title working loose, but holding. Very good condition. "The Commission's problem is simply stated: because it believes that a system which is not firmly based on government by consent and consultation carries within itself the seeds of certain destruction, the Commission sought to suggest or devise a formula which would give all South Africans a meaningful voice in the country's affairs at all levels of administration and policy-making. To be of any value at all however, it was essential that what it proposed had to be practical and to stand at least a reasonable chance of acceptance and implementation under prevailing conditions." .

He travelled alone with a rucksack, tent and rifle, living off the country like the explorers and covering considerable distances on foot and by canoe. In one respect at least he outdid even the old pathfinders themselves, for he is the first man to have made the complete journey from the mouth of the Gambia to the mouth of the Niger." .
