[VARIOUS AUTHORS]
The African Monthly. A Magazine Devoted to Literature, History, Exploration, Science, Art, Poetry, Fiction, &C. No. 13, Vol. III. December, 1907.
(Grahamstown: African Book Company, 1907). . 246 x 157 mm; side-stitched printed wraps; pp. (viii) + 112 + (viii); adverts. Cover slightly foxed and spine a little sunned; slightest edgewear; regular browning, owing to paper stock used. Good condition. A loosely inserted prospectus states: "The fact that the magazine has attained to such comparative longevity (especially in face of the unprecedented commercial depression that has prevailed over the whole country since the MONTHLY was established) confirms our belief that in South Africa there was and is room for a high-class literary magazine conducted on good lines." Highlights of this number include W. Hammond Tooke's article on "The Damara or Ova-Herero", the second of a two-part series by H. A. Bryden on the life of hunter Gordon Cumming, pennings by Cullen Gouldsbury, and reports on Cape politics of the time..

The essays, mainly socio-anthropological in approach, also include some with an historical or literary slant, such as a discussion of the origins of Dingiswayo and Shaka, the history of the Buthelezi clan, Zulu clan praises, and Zulu folktales as literary art. Social System and Tradition in Southern Africa, in which mainly the Nguni people are featured, should appeal to all who have an interest in the social anthropology and ethnography of Southern Africa.".

D'ARVALL, DIANA
Gifts for People. Made by People
(Roodepoort: SHADE, no date). . 210 x 292 mm; saddle-stitched card wrappers; pp. 36; map; colour illustrations. Wrappers slightly rubbed and creased; some discreet annotations. Good condition. Illustrated and annotated catalogue. "In the rural areas of southern Africa an extremely rich heritage of handcrafted art has been preserved by the black people. Uncorrupted by industrialisation, yet perfected by modern ideas, the objects which started as simple household items have been adapted and embellished for contemporary use. The craftspeople retain their natural artistry, but the products spread further to people who value beauty with function. This brochure illustrates a range of these handcrafted items, and tells the story of the people who make them. It brings together established groups that started out as Church-based development projects striving to become economically independent.".

ASHTON, HUGH
The Basuto
(London, Oxford University Press for the International African Institute, 1952). . 8vo; original green cloth; price-clipped dustwrapper; pp. xi + (i) + 355, incl. index; monochrome photographic plates; folding map. Edgeworn dustwrapper and endpapers rather foxed, sporadic light foxing elsewhere. Good condition. "This book, based largely on the author's personal experiences when living in the village of a Basuto Chief, provides the first systematic and comprehensive account of the Basuto people and their changing culture since the works of the French missionaries published early in the century. After a sketch of the historical and social background the author gives a detailed account of the daily lives and activities of the people, describing the upbringing and education of the children, initiation, marriage and funerary rites, economic and political development and the changes in the social structure caused by contact with modern commerce and industry, by the influence of missions and by political developments within and outside the country. Considerable space is devoted to a discussion of law and the working of native courts, to an account of medicine, magic and sorcery and to modern developments in the economic spheres. The recent outbreak of ritual murders and motives for them are touched on. The book is illustrated by many excellent photographs of different aspects of Basuto life.".

BEATTIE, JOHN
Bunyoro. An African Kingdom
(New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1960) 0030047854. . 233 x 153 mm; pictorial wrappers; pp. ix + (iii) + 86; map; some photographs. Wrappers rubbed, partially sunned, and slightly curled; earlier owner's name signed on half-title; occasional fox spot. Good. A volume in the "Case Studies in Cultural Anthropology" series. "This book is many things... But most importantly, this book is a case study of contemporary social relations within a complex and changing East African society. The social behavior of the Nyoro is analyzed in various significant dimensions - at the level of political action and legal control, in relationships between neighbours and between man and the supernatural, and within the system of reciprocal kinship obligations. Dr. Beattie has provided us with an unusual combination of historical perspective and functional analysis of a social system.".

BEATTIE, JOHN
Understanding an African Kingdom: Bunyoro
(New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1965) 0030524652. . 232 x 162 mm; wrappers; pp. xii + (ii) + 61; map. Wrappers rubbed, partially sunned, and slightly curled; earlier owner's name signed on half-title; some foxing. Good condition. "In Bunyoro: An African Kingdom (hereafter referred to as Bunyoro) I gave an outline account, based on twenty-two months of fieldwork, of the social and cultural life of the Banyoro or Nyoro, a Bantu people of western Uganda. Here I describe how that study was made... I hope that what I say may have some bearing on wider problems of research in traditional, centralized societies of comparable type.".

BECKER, PETER
Inland Tribes of Southern Africa
(London: Granada, 1979). . 4to; original brown cloth; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 188; maps, numerous colour and black-and-white photographs. Very good condition in a fair dustwrapper. Dustwrapper torn with loss. A little spotting to half-title page. "Peter Becker is justly celebrated for his books and broadcasts on the indigenous peoples of Southern Africa. In this latest, superbly illustrated volume of travel and exploration he visits Lesotho and the remote regions of the Central and Northern Transvaal ... He tells first of the Basotho and of his visits to the legendary hilltop fortresses at Butha-Buthe and Thaba Bosiu. He seeks out scattered segments of the Ndebele tribe, famous for their wall decorations and magnificent beadwork. Then, moving still farther north, we watch Malatji the Kwena medicine man at work and observe the Kopa women create fantastic headdresses actually built into the hair. We inspect a Venda brewery, see the great beer pots made, and follow in detail the secret initiation rites for Venda boys and girls.".
