BIDWELL, MAUDE, WITH C. H. BIDWELL
Pen Pictures of the Past
(Cape Town: Human & Rousseau, 1986) 0798119322. . Vrijstatia series, number 5. Edited by Karel Schoeman. Introduction by Ella Fischer. 8vo; original yellow boards; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 116 + (iii), incl. index; plates. Dustwrapper a little foxed and rubbed, with sunned spine panel; light bump to bottom fore-corners; trace of foxing. Very good condition. 'Maude Bidwell was born in Bloemfontein in 1877 as daughter of an immigrant German father, G. A. Fichardt, and an English speaking mother from the Eastern Province, and grew up in one of the wealthiest and most prominent families in the Free State Republic, which was moreover distinguished by its strong Republican sentiments. In this book she describes the history of the Fichardts in the Free State over a period of almost sixty years, and sets down her own recollections, ending with the Anglo-Boer War and her marriage in 1902. This text has been supplemented with the recollections of her sister, Ella Fischer, together with the autobiographical notes of her husband, Dr C. H. Bidwell, his letters from the front in 1899, and a selection from the correspondence of the Fichardt family during the war. The result is a unique and vivid picture of life in the "Model Republic" and of the English speaking Free Staters who served it with such remarkable loyalty and love.'.

Gedenkalbum Van Die Oranje-Vrystaat / Souvenir Album of the Orange Free State
(Bloemfontein: Associated Periodicals Limited, 1954). . 4to; original green cloth with gilt coat of arms on upper cover; illustrated endpaper map; pp. xxiv + 154 + [xxv - xliv]; profusely illustrated with manuscript facsimiles and many photographic reproductions of historic personages, events and places, including a little colour; advertisements. Good to very good condition. "The compilers … have to the best of their ability selected illustrations to provide a picture of the history of the Free State in all its aspects up to 1910. The album cannot, of course, pretend to be a self-contained history, but is merely complementary, though it is hoped that it will be a valuable aid in the teaching of the history of our country. It does not go beyond 1910 because in that year the Free State ceased to exist as a separate and independent entity and its history since has been so closely interwoven with that of the Union of South Africa that it can hardly be separated from it.".

Die Dood Van 'n Engelsman: Die Cox-Moorde Van 1856 en Die Vroeë Jare Van Die Oranje-Vrystaat.
(Cape Town: Human & Rousseau, 1982) 0798113103. . 8vo; original purple boards; dustwrapper; pp. 113, incl. index; plates. Dustwrapper a little sunned on spine panel. Very good condition. 'Die teregstelling van die Engelsman Charles Leo Cox deur die Vrystaatse Regering in 1856 vanwee die moord op sy vrou en kinders het dwarsdeur Suid-Afrika 'n sensasie veroorsaak. Aan die hand van die dokumentasie oor hierdie opspraakwekkende saak wat bewaar gebly het, het Karel Schoeman die lewe en dood van Cox gerekonstrueer, en daarmee op lewendige en leesbare wyse aan die vroeë jare van die Vrystaatse geskiedenis gestalte gegee.' 'Cox, Charles Leo (London, Eng, 13.12.1815 (?) - Bloemfontein, 1.11.1856) was executed as a murderer. Nothing is known about his early life, except that he came of a good family. A cousin of his was the wife of Sir Henry Barkly, later High Commissioner and Governor at the Cape. […] On 20.1.1853 Cox married the sixteen-year-old Maria Magdalena Bouwer, […]. The marriage was, however, not happy and it was said that Cox drank and maltreated his wife. Therefore when she and her children died under suspicious circumstances (26.4.1856) he was immediately arrested. He was charged with having murdered his family by strangling his wife and poisoning and suffocating his children, but to the day of his death, he maintained that he was innocent. He stated that his wife had first poisoned her children and then herself with strychnine.' (DSAB, Vol. V, p. 155)..

The Free State Mission. The Work of the Anglican Church in the Orange Free State 1863-1883 As Described by Contemporaries
(Cape Town: Human & Rousseau, 1986) 0798119861. . Number 6 in the Vrijstatia series. 8vo; original purple boards; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 104, incl. index; plates. Dustwrapper sunned on spine panel, with short tear to top edge of lower panel; trace of foxing to top edge and reverse of dutwrapper. Very good condition. "This anthology, compiled mainly from contemporary accounts in the Quarterly Paper of the Free State Mission, gives a description of the work of the Anglican Church in the Orange Free State under its first two Bishops, and of the great contribution it made to the development of the Republic, out of all proportion to its actual size or strength. At the same time the book provides a vivid picture of life in the Free State during the sixties, seventies and eighties of the nineteenth century, and of its people, White, Black and Coloured.".

Second Series No. 25: This is the volume for 1994. 8vo; original dark brown cloth, lettered in gilt on spine, with gilt publisher's device to upper cover; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. xxxiv + 330, incl. index; some maps.

During the 1830s and 1840s they were of considerable importance to the British authorities at the Cape and to the London Missionary Society, and various treaties were concluded with the Kaptyns of Griquatown and Philippolis. The present work comprises a collection of 162 official and semi-official documents relating to the Captaincy which existed at Philippolis in the modern Free State from 1826 until 1861, when it was transferred to Kokstad in what is now Griqualand East.".

"Born in Bloemfontein in 1857 as daughter of the Free State pioneer Isaac Baumann, Mrs Sophie Leviseur spent the greater part of her long life in the town. In her Memories, which she wrote when she was already in her eighties, Mrs Leviseur describes the early decades of the Orange Free State with great vividness, ending with her experiences during the Anglo-Boer War and the Women's Suffrage Movement. Visits to Kimberley, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town in the early years are also described. The Memories of Sophie Leviseur provide a lively portrait of domestic and social life in South Africa during the latter half of the nineteenth century, and as such are an interesting and valuable item of Africana.".

TAYLOR, HENRY (AUTHOR), AND PETER HADLEY (EDITOR)
Doctor to Basuto, Boer & Briton 1877-1906. Memoirs of Dr. Henry Taylor
(Cape Town: David Philip, 1972) 0949968072. . "Fifty copies bound in quarter leather and numbered by hand constitute the limited de luxe edition, of which this is number 38." 8vo; leather-backed cloth over boards; gilt lettering to spine; pp. xii + (vi) + 213, incl. index; plates. Back very slightly scuffed at head; earlier owner's bookplate to front free endpaper; trace of spotting to edges. Very good condition. "Living among both [the Basuto, and the Dutch in the Orange Free State] he adopted the maxim 'Put yourself in his place before passing judgement upon him'. This attitude is central to any subsequent appraisal one makes of the book's worth as a guide to the life and times it recounts. Mythology, which so frequently masquerades as history, is not Dr. Taylor's line. He neither gilds the lily nor indulges in vulgar prejudice. Though there is a certain degree of the old man's typical nostalgia for the prelapsarian innocence of the past - particularly in his idyllic description of the Leribe when he arrived there in 1877 - generally he describes with a clinical impartiality what he himself experienced and tried to comprehend. The tolerance brought to bear on understanding the bucolic community of the Eastern Free State, whose virtues and shortcomings equally stemmed from the isolation of their rural life, also seeks to understand the idiosyncracies of individuals. He is amused but never contemptuous. Even the pompous, drunken quack who fleeced his patients is charitably if floridly despatched: 'May the Recording Angel put his good deeds against his delinquencies and balance the books in his favour.' And the small intimate details - the huisapotheek, the Chief Molapo sending to the O.F.S. for £10 of biscuits - receive equal mention with the alarms of the Gun and South African Wars." - From the Preface by Edna Bradlow..

Blank-Swart-Verhoudinge Soos WeerspieëL in Die Vrystaatse Historiografie 1800-1910
(Bloemfontein: MA thesis [University of the Orange Free State] in unpublished form, 1998). . MA thesis in unpublished form, submitted to the Department of History at the University of the Orange Free State. 4to (300 x 230 mm); red rexine over boards; pp. (i) + iv + 587; printed rectos. Very occasional marginal notes in manuscript. Very good condition. Afrikaans text. Detailed study of race relations in South Africa, focusing on the Free State. Very heavy book. 'Suid-Afrikaanse historiografiese studies is óf van 'n algemene aard óf konsentreer op die debat tussen die revisionistiese en neo-liberale geskiedskrywers óf is togespits op die pennevrug van enkele geskiedskrywers. Hoewel enkele historiograwe spesifiek aandag aan tussengroepverhoudinge in Suid-Afrika skenk, is daar 'n behoefte aan " 'n omvattende historiografiese studie oor tussengroepverhoudinge in Suid-Afrika". Die logistieke omvang van sodanige studie kan tot gevolg hê dat slegs op enkele hoofstroomgeskiedskrywers gekonsentreer word óf dit 'n uitgebreide verwerking van "Tussengroepverhoudinge soos weerspieël in die Suid-Afrikaanse historiografie" word. Om dit te voorkom sal die verhandeling slegs toegespits wees op 'n historiografiese analise van blank-swart-verhoudinge in die Vrystaat gedurende die periode 1800-1910. Net gepubliseerde boeke, hetsy doktorale proefskrifte, MA-verhandelinge, wetenskaplike, populêr-wetenskaplike, asook herinneringswerke of dagboeke oor die 19de en vroeg 20ste eeuse Vrystaatse geskiedenis is historiografies ontleed.'.
