W., M. F. (COMPILER)
Elementary Zulu. A Course of Easy Elementary Lessons in the Zulu Language. Intended Chiefly for Beginners and Junior Pupils
(Cape Town: Juta & Co, 1921). . 185 x 123 mm; printed wrappers; pp. 106. Some rust marks to upper cover; chip to fore-edge of upper wrapper, with archival tape repair to reverse side; slightly frayed at head of spine; some foxing and regular, light browning. Good. (Strange Collection, 1168; Doke, p. 252; SABIB 4, p. 703) Uncommon title: OCLC finds just the North-West University Library copy. "As regards books in Zulu, there are many to be had, and some of them are excellent. The knowledge they impart is without doubt of great service in many cases. But I think they will of only limited service to beginners and to junior pupils. One fault is that they presume some previous knowledge or insight on the part of their readers, such as very often does not exist. Again, they have always seemed to me to fail in not being sufficiently full in the explanation of difficult points, and also to fail in not being graduated carefully and easily, so as to render it possible that progress may be at once easy and sure.".

Malexena Ma Nkana Mu Ncemi
(Bulape: A.P.C.M, 1922). . 8vo; original burgundy cloth, lettered in gilt to upper cover; pp. 105. Cloth lightly rubbed. Very good condition. Highly uncommon mission imprint: a Tshiluba (or Luba-group) Book of Church Order, or Scripture primer, with excerpts from the Pentateuch, Joshua, and the gospels. OCLC and Copac find no repositories holding this title, nor is it in the Doke Collection, though it is listed by the University Library of Gent, Belgium. Bulape is a town north of Mweka, in the Kasai-Occidental province of Congo (Kinshasa), where Presbyterian missionaries have been active since early colonial times. In 1938, Virginia Garner wrote of the place: "Bulape is located in the forest country and is on a hill like all the other stations of this mission. There are people of three different tribes here, the Baketi, Baluba, and Bakuba. The Bakuba, to the north, control the whole section and makes slaves of the other people. The whole Baketi tribe are subject to Lukenga's [Lukengo's] rule, king of the Bakuba, and many smaller tribes as well. The missionaries here have to learn three languages. Our little Baluba is still good here thank goodness, as we know more of that than any other language in Africa." - Images Out of Africa: The Virginia Garner Diaries of the Africa Motion Picture Project, p. 96.

It consists of forty-two graded lessons. Each lesson consists of a grammatical section, a short vocabulary, a text and an exercise. The lessons have been planned to lead one to the other in a continuous movement, while each has been made as much of a unity as possible, the grammatical section being illustrated by sentences from the text and the exercise enabling the new material to be digested and used at once.".
