'Moontlik onder invloed van "Kaatje Kekkelbek", wat in November 1838 met groot sukses in Grahamstad opgevoer is en op 4 Maart 1839 in The South African Sentinel verskyn het, plaas Meurant van 31 Oktober 1844 tot in 1850 in sy blad 'n groot aantal briewe en samesprake in Afrikaans, meestal deur homself geskryf. Sy bedoeling daarmee was om die laglus op te wek en sy blad populêr te maak, maar in die briewe en samesprake is ook ernstige sake behandel omdat Meurant ingesien het dat die grensboere Afrikaans veel makliker as Nederlands sou verstaan.' - From the introduction, by J. du P. Scholtz.

ALLEN, GEOFFREY & DAVID
Clive's Lost Treasure
(London: Robin Garton, 1978) 0906030072. . 4to; original brown boards, lettered in gilt on spine; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 103 + (i); colour plates; maps; facsimile. Dustwrapper every so slightly rubbed; some light foxing to edges, endpapers and outermost leaves. Very good condition. "Faced with the challenge of driving the French from India, Robert Clive booked a passage in the East Indiaman Dodington for his voyage out in 1755. At the last moment he switched ships but left in Dodington the major part of his wealth - £3,000 in gold coin. Also aboard the ship was a company of 200 soldiers, and her valuable cargo included 36,000 ounces of silver in pieces of eight. In her hold were cannon, for the defence of India, sent on the orders of George II. The ship struck Bird Island off Port Elizabeth. Only 23 men survived and they remained there for eight months while a sloop was built from the wreckage. In great physical hardship, troubled by both mutiny and piracy, the survivors sailed some 800 miles north to Lourenço Marques. Over two centuries later a team of divers headed by David Allen found the fabled wreck of the Dodington. Their salvage work was perilous for Clive's gold was jealously 'guarded' by Great White Death Sharks. Dodington is the first British East Indiaman to have been salvaged and the find has been hailed as a major archaeological triumph.".

ALLEN, GEOFFREY & DAVID
The Guns of Sacramento
(London: Robin Garton, 1978) 0 906030 06 4. . 4to; original dark blue boards, lettered in gilt on spine; pictorial dustwrapper, housed in removable protector; pp. 81 + (iv); maps; photographic plates in monochrome and full colour. Slight loss to head of dustwrapper's spine panel. Very good condition. "The Portuguese galleon Sacramento was one of the great men o' war of the seventeenth century. Built by Royal commission of teak, this thousand ton Leviathan mounted some 60 guns. But it was the massive bronze cannon in her hold, cast in Macao for the defence of Portugal, that made her maiden voyage in 1617 so vital. As with many of the great ships in history, her potential was never realised. Weighed down with her cargo, a freak storm drove her on to the rocks off Port Elizabeth, where she broke up. With her loss, Portuguese global strategy suffered an irrevocable reverse. David Allen traced and salvaged the Sacramento, bringing 40 bronze cannon ashore in spite of considerable interference. Research has brought to light the astonishing account of the surviving crew members who trekked 1,000 miles up the hostile African coast to safety.".

AMSCHWAND, NIGEL
A Short History of the Onder-Bokkeveld
(Cape Town: Aquaknowledge, 2010) 0981422800. . 206 x 146 mm; pictorial wrappers; pp. xii + 187, incl. index; monochrome photographs and historic artwork; maps and plans. Wrappers very slightly rubbed. Very good condition. "For over a hundred years the Onder-Bokkeveld, together with the Hantam and Roggeveld, was the northern border of the Cape Colony and was equivalent to the Wild West of South Africa. The land to the north had little permanent water and was inhabited by hostile Khoikhoi and San. This book describes the conditions leading up to the colonization of the area by the free-burgers of the Dutch East India Company and their spread throughout the area, displacing the previous Khoisan inhabitants. It also details the commando activities and living conditions of the colonists. Three of the early farms are chosen for more detailed analysis providing some idea of the lifestyle in the border area and farmers' interactions with their family and neighbours. The routes taken by the inhabitants to and from Cape Town are given with some accounts of early travellers' journeys.".
