BARAITSER, MICHAEL, AND ANTON OBHOLZER
Cape Country Furniture. A Pictorial Survey of Regional Styles, Materials and Techniques in the Cape Province of South Africa
(Cape Town: A. A. Balkema, 1971). . Number 137 of an edition limited to two hundred copies in a special quarter leather binding, signed by both authors. With an historical introduction by Dr Mary Alexander Cook. 4to; original brown quarter leather, lettered in gilt on spine; marbled boards; gilt publisher's monogram to upper cover; dustwrapper; pp. xviii + 286, incl. index; map; profusely illustrated with photographs of specimen pieces. Dustwrapper with a few small impresions to upper panel, trace of wear to tail of spine panel, and some foxing to reverse; very occasional minor fox spot. An excellent copy of this specially-bound, signed version of the first edition. "From the beginning of the 19C Cape Town and the Boland were swamped with imported furniture. For physical and financial reasons the Cape country districts escaped this fate for almost three generations; and during this period there developed the wealth of style and variety of design described in this absorbing book... What emerges is that Cape country furniture is considerably richer in style and variety than that of Cape Town and the Boland. It is worthy of serious study and deeper appreciation than has been the case in the past. With this in mind, the authors systematically searched the Cape platteland for many years; they found and studied examples of locally-made furniture, and took the 960 photographs that are reproduced in this book. From these research data they were able to describe and to classify the regional styles, the craftsmen, and the timbers.".

BARAITSER, MICHAEL, AND ANTON OBHOLZER
Town Furniture of the Cape
(Cape Town: Struik, 1987) 086977302X. . 4to; original brown boards, lettered in gilt on spine; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 224, incl. index; profusely illustrated, incl. a section in full-colour. A little foxing to edges and endpapers. Very good condition. Landmark work on this subject. "While the text examines the background of styles and individual pieces such as the Cape armoire, rusbanke, bureaux, tables and chairs, and discusses the influences that various European styles had on Cape furniture designs, the emphasis of this book rests on the visual. Over 900 black and white photographs as well as 30 colour plates have been reproduced to give collectors and historians an outstanding record of the furniture of this period. Town Furniture of the Cape is the most comprehensive work on the subject to date and is without doubt a major contribution to South Africa's cultural heritage.".

VAN DE GEIJN-VERHOEVEN, MONIQUE, WITH ANTONIA MALAN, KAREL SCHOEMAN, AND OTHERS
Domestic Interiors at the Cape and in Batavia 1602-1795
(Cape Town: Fernwood Press, 2002) 1874950687. . 240Large 4to; original blue boards, lettered in gilt on spine and upper cover; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 240; profusely illustrated with contemporary artwork and large, full-colour photographs of the pieces described. Earlier owner's bookplate to front pastedown. Fine condition. "This book focuses on seventeenth and eighteenth-century domestic interiors at the Cape and in Batavia. Its publication marks not only the 400th anniversary of the founding of the Dutch East India Company (VOC), but also the 350th anniversary of Jan van Riebeeck's arrival on the Cape. Domestic Interiors at the Cape and in Batavia 1602-1795 is the first publication ever to discuss furniture from the Indies and the Cape in relation to each other. The Cape was an important staging post on the VOC merchantmen's voyage to the Far East. This fact gave rise to the development of a flourishing Dutch community there, with strong links both to Holland and to Batavia. This book examines both the physical legacy of this community and the fascinating history of domestic furnishings in Batavia, a leading VOC trading post in the Far East.".

Denis Godfrey, who was born in the Transkei of 1820 Settler ancestry, is a Johannesburg journalist and has written and lectured extensively on Africana, which he began collecting 25 years ago.".

Its extensive colour photographs help identify old bottles that are found in South Africa, while the illustrations of old articles and advertisements give a delightful insight into the place of our memorabilia in everyday Victorian life. Not only glass bottles, but other items found in the same locations, such as stoneware containers, beautifully decorated porcelain pot lids, china dolls, and pipes, are discussed in this comprehensive book. Many of the items discussed were manufactured in Britain, but the stories of these products reflect fascinating aspects of industrial and cultural development of South Africa.".
