'Up to now, the hundreds - aye, thousands - of columns of epistolatory literature which the ladies of the furbelow press have from time to time indited to "Dearest Maude," have elicited no response from that young lady. How wisely has somebody said that there is no day like Sunday for writing letters, nor Monday for - forgetting to post them! Still, rescued from the oblivion of various ridiculous reticules and writing-cases, here they are, and not the less welcome "Maude" hopes of arriving all together. A.M.B.'.

FLEMMING, LEONARD
The Odd Koppie of a Veld Fool
(Bloemfontein: A. C. White, 1929). . 8vo; original orange cloth; pp. (xii) + 203. Cover rubbed and lightly soiled; hinges tender; gift inscription to front free endpaper; moderate foxing throughout; archival tape repair to one leaf of prelims. at gutter. Good. 'It is the lot of every writer to have their more recent books compared to their first, and it is a universal fact that they are "not so good". Actually, if you study the matter carefully, it will be found that the later books are just as bad as the first. When somebody once said to a famous editor that his paper isn't as good as it was, he replied, "It never was". One of the difficulties of a scribbler, such as I, is to please everybody. Each year I receive a very large number of letters from readers. Some say that they hope I will write more verse; others hope that I will write less. Some hope that I will continue to write in a light humorous way - others hope that I will write more serious stuff. And here I wish to thank sincerely the many kind people who have been courteous enough to refrain from writing to tell me not to write at all.'.

NIEMAND, PIET (PSEUDONYM)
Jan Domm: A Romp
(London, Geoffrey Bles, 1962). . Illustrated by George Adamson. Small octavo, pictorial dustwrapper, pp. 106. Edges lightly foxed. Parody, satire on Apartheid legislation. 'Jan Domm was as upright and noble a specimen of White Man as you could hope to meet. He believed, with a belief even stronger perhaps than that held by the ordinary good citizen, that the Government, all-wise and all-benevolent, could make no mistakes. So when he was re-classified as Coloured, Jan Domm enthusiastically accepted the change in his status and bore its consequences with humility, pride and praise for the wonders of racial discrimination. True, he lost his wife, his children, money, job and sundry physical faculties. But to what a Cause!'.

SPIES, JAN
Poort Deur Die Koue (Vertellings 2)
(Cape Town: Tafelberg, 1984) 0624022447. . 8vo; original papered boards; dustwrapper; pp. (xii) + 113. Dustwrapper very slightly edgeworn, with lower panel rubbed, and tape scars to flaps; gift inscription to front free endpaper; tape marks to free endpapers. Very good condition. Afrikaans text. "Wanneer Jan Spies vertel van 'n leerlingverpleegster se slim planne met 'n emmer vol kunstande of van 'n bobbejaan wat hom spook in die plek van 'n afgestorwe boervrou, van 'n groot-eet in 'n gemsbokpark of 'n oud-stryder se taalprobleem op die paradebaan, slaan hy 'n poort deur die koue van die moderne bestaan. Want in dié stories toon hy dat die lewe meer as kompers, video's en hidro's is, dat mense tóg na mekaar kan uitreik, dat vreugde ook in die eenvoudige te vinde is. Hier wag op die leser die warmte van humor en menslikheid, dikwels met 'n tikkie nostalgie daarby. Poort deur die koue is 'n tweede keur uit Jan Spies se onnabootsbare bydraes tot die Afrikaanse radiodiens se vroeëmôreprogram Monitor.".

SWANSON, DONALD
Sunrise over Tanesia
(Cape Town: Simondium Publishers, 1965). . 8vo; original red boards; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 144. Dustwrapper a little edgeworn, and sunned on spine panel; some foxing to endpapers, dustwrapper, and page edges. Good condition. "Sunrise Over Tanesia is a satire on life in a mythical, newly-independent African state. It is a light-hearted romp concerning a film-unit sent out in all ignorance from Britain to the imaginary and turbulent state of Tanesia to make a documentary film. The film never quite gets made, but the hilarious situations into which the film-makers are projected and the gloriously eccentric characters they become involved with are memorable in the extreme. There are riots and revolutions and counter-revolutions, inept black dictators and crazy, lovable, blimpish remnants of the dying British Raj... Sunrise Over Tanesia is rich satire rather in the tradition of Evelyn Waugh's Black Mischief.".
