BAUMANN, HANS
Die Grotte Van Die Groot Jagters
(Cape Town: John Malherbe, 1974) 0869660853. . 8vo; original orange boards, lettered in white on spine; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 170; line drawings; maps.

Afrikaans text. "In 1940 het vier seuns en 'n hond eendag in 'n woud in die suidweste van Frankryk rondgeloop. Skielik het die hond in die niet verdwyn - asof die aarde hom ingesluk het. … Die seuns se vonds [die beroemde Lascaux-grot], wat hulle gesien het en wat aan hulle vertel is van die betekenis van hul ontdekking en van die lewe van die ystydmens, word met groot oorspronklikheid, ontsag en verbeelding deur die skrywer vertel. Dié verhaal word spannender as die beste storie. En saam met die seuns betree die leser 'n byna ongelooflike wêreld onder die aarde, om, soos die seuns, nooit weer dieselfde te kan wees wanneer hy weer na die sonlig uitgeklim het nie.".

The present book is based upon these lectures. Its aim is to explain the words to which professional archaeologists, like myself, do give technical meanings, the methodological hypotheses we invoke and the postulates underlying our procedures.".

COTTRELL, LEONARD
The Lion Gate. A Journey in Search of the Mycenaeans
(London: Evans Brothers, 1963). . 8vo; original red cloth, lettered in gilt on spine; no dustwrapper; pp. 256, incl. index; plates; map. Cloth somewhat stippled, and partially sunned; trace of foxing to top edge, prelims, and occasionally elsewhere. Good condition. "It concerns the Mycenaeans, the first Greek-speaking inhabitants of Greece, who began to enter the country at the beginning of the second millennium B.C. Gradually they became dominant, ruling from their strong-walled cities, and absorbing much from the Minoan civilization of Crete which they eventually conquered. They raided and traded in the eastern Aegaean, came into contact with the Hittite Empire, with Egypt, and some time in the thirteenth century B.C. mounted a great expedition against Troy. Then, perhaps exhausted by that war, they succumbed to the invading Dorians, leaving behind only the burned-out ruins of their palaces, and a legacy of heroic poetry which has proved more enduring than their mighty walls and deep-dug tombs. This essential outline has been accepted for a good number of years, but new facts have come to light which illustrate, amplify and sometimes modify it.".

In colloquial usage the research area would correspond to the Eastern Cape and Cape Midlands.".

GOODWIN, A.J.H. (EDITOR)
A Commentary of the History and Present Position of South African Prehistory with Full Bibliography: Bantu Studies Vol. IX No. 4
(Johannesburg: The University of the Witwatersrand Press, 1935). . 248 x 155 mm; original thin card wrappers; pp. 291 - 417. Wrappers somewhat browned, creased and frayed on spine; staples rusted. "In 1933 an Inter-University Committee for African Studies was appointed to report on published and unpublished material on archaeology. The ultimate form of the report is the outcome of an earlier independent 'Commentary and Bibliography' by the convenor, A.J.H. Goodwin, and consultations with Mrs A.W. Hoernle and C. van Riet Lowe who later joined the Committee. The fundamentally important paper, of great value in compiling this bibliography, is the counterpart to similar reports on Native languages and social anthropology (Doke, 1933; Schapera, 1934). It has six parts on: I. History of archaeological enquiry up to the introduction of the New terminology; II. The New Terminology; III. The present position of South African prehistory; IV. Correlations; V. The Future; VI. Bibliography (with short analysis of main bibliographical sources)." - S.E. Holm: "Bibliography of South African Pre- and Procto-Historic Archaeology" #407..

HENDEY, Q. B.
Langebaanweg. A Record of Past Life
(Cape Town: South African Museum, 1982). . 208 x 150 mm; pictorial wrappers; pp. (vi) + 71; photographs; line drawings; maps; diagrams. A little spotting to fore-edge; ink stamp to inside of upper cover; two penned names to final blank. Very good condition. "Today, the south-western coast of South Africa is dry and windswept, the vegetation stunted, and few wild animals inhabit the region. This was not always the case. The sediments of the region, and the fossils they contain, testify to periods of warmer temperature, higher rainfall, lush vegetation, and animal life of great abundance and variety. This book tells the story of the past 20 million years at Langebaanweg near Saldanha Bay, where one of the world's richest fossil sites provides a unique insight into a tropical wildlife paradise in decline.".
