ALEXANDER, DAVID
Sani Pass. Riding the Dragon. For Those with a Spirit of Adventure

Wrappers lightly rubbed; earlier owner's bookplate inside upper cover; trace of spottng to edges. Very good condition. "David Alexander's story is a story of courage, endurance and fortitude; of incredible hardship and incredible risks; of near disaster, but eventual triumph - the bringing of a road to a people cut off from civilisation. The intrepid tourist today can enter the Kingdom of Lesotho, that land of towering mountains and icy rivers, where the snow falls at any time of the year, by following the same road - a road that breaches the sheer, 10 000ft high Drakensberg escarpment on the border of Natal, and then snakes up through the Sani Pass in some of the most magnificent scenery to be found anywhere in the world.".

GERMOND, ROBERT C. (COMPILER AND TRANSLATOR)
Chronicles of Basutoland. A Running Commentary on the Events of the Years 1830-1902 by the French Protestant Missionaries in Southern Africa
(Morija: Morija Sesuto Book Depot, 1967). . An edition limited to 3000 copies. 8vo; original blue rexine, lettered in gilt on spine, with gilt device to upper cover; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 583, incl. index; photographs; maps, incl. folding. Dustwrapper edgeworn and rippled, with earlier owner's tape repairs to reverse; slightest trace of damp-staining to bottom edge; endpapers and edges a little foxed. Good to very good condition. "Dr. R. C. Germond has rendered a service to Basutoland, to South Africa, and to students of history in general in publishing these translations of the letters of the early French Protestant missionaries in Basutoland... These letters tell the story of men of God who came to Basutoland primarily to preach the Gospel and never forgot that first calling, but who almost unwillingly found themselves often cast for the role of ambassadors or special pleaders for the Basuto people. They tell the story also of their heroic wives, whose part in the pioneering story is certainly not of minor importance. Let the letters speak for themselves. They tell a dramatic story and tell it with candour and simplicity. Those who love Basutoland, will thank Dr. Germond for his work." - From the Foreword, by Edgar H. Brookes..

MURRAY, COLIN
Families Divided. The Impact of Migrant Labour in Lesotho
(Johannesburg: Ravan Press, 1981). . 8vo (213 x 140 mm); original wraps laid on boards; pp. xvi + 219, incl. index; map, tables and diagrams. Ex-library copy with reinforced wraps, covered with clear adhesive plastic; stamps and label remnants to endpapers and prelims. Good condition. "Lesotho, once 'the granary of the Free State and part of the Cape Colony', eventually became an impoverished labour reserve. Mass labour migration destroyed family life in Lesotho as well as in Botswana, Swaziland and the Bantustans within South Africa. Why did the migrant labour system not end with political independence in these countries? This fundamental question is examined by Colin Murray in his penetrating historical study of Lesotho.".

SMITH, EDWIN W.
The Mabilles of Basutoland
(Morija: Morija Museum & Archives, 1996) 9991179399. . Text facsimile of the Hodder and Stoughton edition of 1939. 8vo; original blue cloth, lettered in silver gilt on spine; pictorial dustwrapper; endpaper map; pp. (viii) + 382, incl. index. Dustwrapper ever so slightly rubbed. Near-fine condition. "The turbulent and heroic years of nation-building in Lesotho during the 19th century provide the backdrop for Edwin Smith's classic biography, The Mabilles of Basutoland, which was first published in 1939. This well written study offers an intimate portrayal of Adolphe and Adèle Mabille, two very noteworthy figures in the development of the rugged mountain kingdom and of her people, the Basotho. Adolphe and Adèle Mabille spent their entire missionary careers at Morija and helped to make it one of the most important centres of national life. Mabille consolidated previous endeavours and extended the work of the mission in many new and fruitful directions. Most importantly, it was at Morija that the Protestant intelligentsia was trained and sent out to take up positions of leadership both in Lesotho and across Southern Africa. It is for this reason that Morija is known as Selibeng sa Thuto, or the Fountain of Learning. Edwin Smith takes us through these times, illuminating the issues of the day, the personalities involved, and the contributions which were made to the growth of the nation and the Protestant church.".

TYLDEN, G.
The Rise of the Basuto
(Cape Town: Juta & Co, 1950). . 8vo; original pale blue cloth; pictorial dustwrapper (housed in removable protector); endpaper map; pp. xi + (i) + 270, incl. index; plates; maps. Dustwrapper edgeworn and a bit rubbed; earlier owner's name signed on front free endpaper; light browning throughout; occasional fox spot. Very good condition. "This book covers the history of the people of Basutoland from 1824 to the present day and is a worthy addition to the growing number of excellent books on the different native races of Africa. Moshesh, the founder of Basutoland, stands out, of course, as the central figure. The author shows that his policy and that of his successors has always been to seek the direct protection of Great Britain and to remain under that protection - hence the mortal fear in Basutoland to-day of any possible handing over of Britain's suzerainty over the country to South Africa. Lesser themes are the efforts of the three governments of the countries surrounding Basutoland to acquire the country and the failure of those efforts, and, on the other hand, the unsuccessful attempt made by one of Moshesh's successors to throw off the overlordship of the whites with the help of other neighbouring tribes. The Author, who has lived in the country for a large part of his life and who knows the Basuto nation well, has written a very thorough and well-documented history which will undoubtedly be the standard work on Basutoland for many years to come.".

WALTON, JAMES
Father of Kindness and Father of Horses. Ramosa le Ralipere. A History of Frasers Limited
(Wepener: Frasers Limited, 1958). . Printed by Morija Printing Works, Morija, Basutoland. 247 x 185 mm; pictorial card wrappers; endpaper map; pp. 48; plates. Cover tanned, foxed, somewhat fishmothed, with silked edges; archival tape strengthening to spine; faint trace of rippling to bottom edges. Internally very good; modest condition externally. "Frasers Limited has a good tradition. It has served the community of Basutoland well for many decades and in more recent years has extended its service to the Transvaal by following its customers to the Rand; it has made many friends even amongst its rivals. An eightieth birthday is an occasion worthy to be celebrated, and how better than by publishing this brief record or history? This story is mainly about the Frasers' business in Basutoland, now represented by the parent Company of Wepener, Orange Free State, with its subsidiary Company of long-standing, K. Nolan Limited of Ficksburg, and its much newer, but bigger, subsidiary in Johannesburg, known as D. & D.H. Fraser (Proprietary) Limited, of 316, Commissioner Street... We are fortunate that this history should have been written by a distinguished scholar who knows Basutoland well. Mr. James Walton, the author, is well known as a historian, archaeologist and ethnographer. Over many years he has written about Basutoland and its people and his books and articles are widely read.".
