With the assistance of his younger brother, Fred Struben, he found the Confidence gold reef, and subsequent geological evaluation and prospecting by the two brothers resulted in the discovery of the vast goldfields which have contributed so enormously to the healthy well-being of modern industrial South Africa." .

(Cape Town: Maskew Miller, 1945, 1st edition). Author's presentation inscription, signed with date, to half-title. English translation by Bernard and Elize D. Lewis. 4to; original grey cloth, blocked in red; upper panel and flap of original dustwrapper loosely inserted (as is a paper from 'Bantu Studies' relating to the Cape Malays); decorative endpapers; pp. 202, incl. glossary; full-colour frontis.; charming decorations and full-page illustrations by Nerine Desmond. Cloth partially sunned; some browning. Very good. "Some of the themes may be indigenous. Some are from the East, others from Europe; but all have a local colour which makes them a specific contribution to the world's dwindling stock of folk-tales. These stories have been recorded by a South African poet and author, winner of an Academy award for Poetry in 1937. ... Nerine Desmond, born in Cape Town and one of the Union's leading artists, ... has brought out strongly their link with the East." .

(Cape Town: Howard Timmins, 1968). 4to; original pale grey boards; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 110; full-page line drawings. Dustwrapper a little rubbed and edgeworn; endpapers, outer leaves, edges and reverse of dustwrapper rather foxed, some spotting elsewhere; bottom edge slightly rippled. Fair to good. 'The following tales, most of them suitable for a higher age group than those of the "Fireside" series, are faithful representations of the age-old Folk Tales of the Bantu of Africa. Among the Bantu complex, tales are for the ears of all who care to listen, old and very young alike. Nothing is modified for the ears of tender years. For this reason, many of the tales of antiquity collected by the author have been excluded from her previous books, because of the Young People having claimed the "Fireside" series for their own. Too good to be lost to memory, a selection of these tales has now been combined with other milder ones to form this, the author's final book.' .

"In so far as it purports to be a record of interviews with clients, it may be censured by the professional man and from the layman meet with some disapproval. Those judgments will proceed upon the assumption that the relationship of solicitor and client is tantamount, in respect of professional confidence, to that of a penitent and his spiritual director. …Yet there must be few men who have practised the law for over half-a-century who have not on their shelves files of papers that contain the elements of some human story that the world would wish to hear - and would be the better for hearing. The problem in such cases is how to present the story without violating professional confidence." .

Fair to good condition. "There are many berths in Table Bay docks. For each of these berths a harbour pilot will have a store of experiences, some interesting, some exciting and some funny. In the pages which follow I have set down a number of my own, commencing in the newer parts of the harbour and working back along the wharves to the place where ships first lay here in shelter. To me, the fascination of this port lies in its ability to lure my mind back through the corridors of Time, so it has seemed natural to tell my tales in this sort of sequence." .
