[CHRIS VAN RENSBURG PUBLICATIONS]
The Mineral Potential and Mining Development in the Black Homelands of South Africa
(Johannesburg: Chris van Rensburg Publications, 1977) 0908393040. . Folio; original white papered boards; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 127; colour maps; colour photographs; advertisements. Dustwrapper sunned, rubbed, and somewhat edgeworn; some foxing to boards and prelims. Good. "The South African government is committed to a policy of sovereign independence for the Black homelands within the borders of South Africa. … To provide the best possible economic base for the rapid political development of the Black homelands, the government some years ago initiated a programme of physical development in the homelands in partnership with their inhabitants. … This book tells the story of these mineral resources and the development progress achieved so far. Factual and unembellished by rhetoric, the text tells a story of quiet perseverance and some remarkable achievements. The value of the book is enhanced by the inclusion of 10 full-colour maps, 27 full-colour photographs and several tables and diagrams.".

BRUTON, ERIC
Diamonds
(London: N.A.G. Press, 1978) 0719800714. . 8vo; original black rexine, lettered in gilt on spine; no dustwrapper; pp. xiv + 532, incl. index; photographs and artwork in colour and monochrome; diagrams. Very slightly rubbed; occasional fox spot. Very good condition. "This book does not set out to deal with the admitted formidable technical complexities of current scientific research on atomic diamond structure ... It will not frighten off the lay reader with an overload of scientific technologies. On the contrary to the student of gemmology and mineralogy, to the practising diamond cutter and polisher, indeed to the non-technically minded diamond merchant, this book should prove to be a boon and something to whet the appetite.".

Against the uproarious background of early Johannesburg he learned his trade from great prospectors like "French Bob". In the wilderness of old Rhodesia he received his final lessons of blood and tears, and then, with patience and persistence, he wrote his name in the honoured list of all those who have given makind something of value and to history a chapter of bold achievement.'.

This book looks at the formative period of modern South Africa from another viewpoint - that of the working men and women whose labour made the country's industrial revolution possible: a 'history from below'…".

EAVE, GEOFF
Voluntate Servio. A History of the Mines Rescue Service in Northern Kwazulu-Natal 1925-2000
(Dundee: R. A. Burns & Co, 2000). . Author's presentation inscription on copyright page. 240 x 170 mm; laminated pictorial wraps; pp. xii + 104; map; monochrome photographs and diagrams in text. Near fine condition; slightest crease to corner of lower cover. "The discovery of coal in Northern KwaZulu Natal nearly one hundred and forty years ago set the stage for the development of the coal mining industry in the region. Mother Nature created an extremely challenging mining environment that at times has imposed a heavy toll on human life. The need arose for the formation of a mines rescue service. A corps of trained men, with courage, skill and efficiency, combined with the use of modern breathing apparatus and ancillary equipment, who could be called upon in emergencies. Their focus was in saving lives and limiting further loss. The Central Mine Rescue Station in Dundee is one of four Rescue Stations in South Africa that provide mine emergency response and consultancy services to the mining industry. This year the South African Mines Rescue Service celebrates its 75th Anniversary. The launch of this book to co-incide with the celebrations is a fitting tribute to the men and their ladies who serve our mining industry and a fitting historical record of those who preceded us." - Foreword..

GUERNSEY, T. D.
A Prospector's Guide to Mineral Occurrences in Northern Rhodesia. Arranged and Compiled for the British South Africa Company by T.D. Guernsey
(Salisbury: The British South Africa Company, 1952). . 8vo; original light green cloth, lettered in black on spine and upper cover; pp. (iv) + 91; several maps and charts, incl. folding; large, folding map, in colours, mounted to rear pastedown. Extremities somewhat rubbed; corners a little turned; sporadic, moderate foxing. Good to very good condition. "The several large mines now in production have tended lately to overshadow the numerous Occurrences of minerals in other parts of the country which, though perhaps remote and inconspicuous, may nevertheless have considerable present or future value. It is the purpose of this volume to place before those interested in the mineral wealth of the Territory a concise summary of its geologic framework and, in greater detail, some of the information which is available, but not yet published, relating to the numerous known Occurrences of economic minerals. It is hoped the descriptions and data on the following pages will be of practical use to prospectors and will stimulate in others an interest in the prospector's work and the country's resources.".
