[DEPARTMENT OF INFORMATION, SOUTH AFRICA]
Ethiopia and Liberia Versus South Africa. An Official Account of the Contentious Proceedings on South West Africa Before the International Court of Justice at the Hague 1960-1966.
(Pretoria, Department of Information, 1966). . 8vo; original red cloth; pp. (iv) + 304; map; photographic plates. Earlier owner's name on front free endpaper; code at tail of spine. Very good condition. ". the UN persisted in its condemnation of South Africa's involvement in Namibia, noting in 1959 that the Union was administering the territory in a manner contrary to the mandate, the UN Charter, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Court of Justice. Finally, in 1960 the only two African members of the UN General Assembly who had also been members of the League of Nations, Ethiopia and Liberia, took the matter to the International Court. Four years later the judges, in a split vote, narrowly declared that they had no power to decide the dispute, a decision that brought joy to the South African Government and gloom to the Namibian lobbyists." - Illustrated History of South Africa: The Real Story, p. 460..

[REPUBLIC OF SOUTH AFRICA]
International Court of Justice. South West Africa Cases (Ethiopia and Liberia V. The Republic of South Africa). Counter-Memorial Filed by the Government of the Republic of South Africa
(no place: Government of South Africa, 1963). . Volumes I and IX. Two 4to volumes; original pale grey papered boards, with lettering in black to upper cover in each case, and similar lettering to the spine of the second volume; pp. (vi) +40, (x) + 116; two folding colour maps in Volume I; numerous photographs in Volume IX. Boards slightly soiled and bumped; a little spotting. Good to very good condition. In November of 1960, the governments of Liberia and Ethiopia submitted an application to the International Court of Justice to institute proceedings against the government of South Africa, on the grounds that the Union [shortly to become the Republic] had, in their view, failed to fulfill the obligations connected with its United Nations mandate over the territory of South West Africa. These volumes represent part of the South African government's response in its own defence. The second volume is particularly interesting, presenting a photo-essay on Namibia and its peoples..

ANONYMOUS
The Turnhalle. Link from the Past, Forged Into the Chain of Current Events
(Cape Town and Windhoek: Gunther Komnick Studio, 1979). . 295 x 260 mm; pictorial wrappers; unpaginated (pp. 24); map; liberally illustrated, largely in full colour on thick art paper. Wrappers a little rubbed, with small crease to corner of upper cover, and scuff to edge of lower cover; archival tape reinforcing to hinges. Very good condition. A scarce souvenir publication, celebrating the function of Windhoek's Turnhalle, a building dating from German colonial times, and used as a base by the delegates (sanctioned by the South African government) meeting to determine a new constitution for South West Africa. "An anxious clamour is heard every now and then that things are moving too slowly. Perhaps - but consider the simile of the little tree ... On the other hand, if the old Turnhalle could undergo a complete face lift in six weeks, then why shouldn't the Turnhalle Conference produce a model constitution within two years, one that will embody all the best ideals of true democratic liberty? The Turnhalle has found many friends among people of all ranks and walks of life, both at home and abroad. These are sincere well-wishers who fearlessly champion the cause for which the Turnhalle stands.".

HENRICHSEN, DAG (COMPILER)
A Glance at Our Africa. Facsimile Reprint of South West News - Suidwes Nuus 1960. The Only Non-Racial Newspaper in the Territory
(Basel: Basler Afrika Bibliographien, 1997) 3905141698. . 374 x 245 mm; pictorial wrappers; pp. (ii) + 120; photographs. A little bumped. Very good condition. "This book contains the facsimile reprint of the first African newspaper published in Namibia, South West News - Suidwes Nuus. Issued in 1960 in Windhoek, it has to be regarded as the earliest example of independent African journalism in Namibia. South West News was the only newspaper in Namibia at the time with a non-racial and nationalist concept. It was also a community paper for the Old Location, the African township in Windhoek, whose residents were threatened with forced removals. The paper was launched shortly after the shootings in December 1959 at the Old Location. It published statements by Hosea Kutako, SWANU as well as OPO/SWAPO and the testimonies of Mburumba Kerina, Jariretundu Kozonguizi and Sam Nujoma at the hearings of the UN Committee on South-West Africa in New York. It reported on social events in the Old Location, on the Maharero-Day in Okahandja and on the funeral of Chief Josaphat Kambazembi. South West News was one of the few public documents representing African issues to Africans themselves, and to the colonial society in Namibia at large. Today, the newspaper is largely forgotten. The book makes South West News accessible again and examines its history and contents.".

DE KLERK, W. A.
The Thirstland
(London: Rex Collings, 1977) 0860360458. . 8vo; original dark brown boards, lettered in gilt on spine; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; endpaper map; pp. (vi) + 463. Dustwrapper partially sunned, a little rubbed, with trace of damp-stain to edges; archival tape reinforcing to reverse of dustwrapper's short edge-tears; two small holes to lower panel and board, slightly penetrating final leaves (suggestive of scissors having been dropped on the book); earlier owner's name signed on front free endpaper; trace of foxing to edges. Good condition. Historical novel recounting the experiences of the Dorsland trekkers. "The primary chronicle of the book is that of the Thirstlanders, who during the eighteen seventies left their well-established homes in the Transvaal to search for their own Utopia - somewhere else in Africa. Contending with some of the most difficult terrain in Africa, this trek became one of the strangest recorded overland journeys of the last century... Intertwined in the strange history of the Thirstlanders in search of their Land of Rest is the personal history of Will Worthington Jordan: the coloured man from the Cape who became guide, counsellor and friend to one of the most fundamentalist of Boer societies of the time. After he had led them to a lost highland in Southern Angola, Jordan died in Ovamboland a martyr in their cause. The cause of the most unlikely of all the Boer republics: Upingtonia in Damaraland.".

LEVINSON, OLGA
Diamonds in the Desert. The Story of August Stauch and His Times
(Cape Town: Tafelberg, 1983) 0624019217. . 4to; original blue boards, lettered in gilt on spine; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. (x) + 172, incl. index; liberally illustrated with contemporary and modern photographs, including some in colour; map. Slightest curl to edges of dustwrapper; bottom edges of boards very slightly rubbed; occasional fox spot. Very good condition. The "remarkable story of August Stauch, the lonely railway worker who stumbled across diamonds at an outpost in a god-forsaken desert area near Luderitz in the former German colony of South West Africa. With the ease of a skilled writer [Olga Levinson] brings to life the feverish rush for diamonds by a motley crowd of fortune-hunters. There is both drama and humour in this vivid depiction of ordinary people caught up in extraordinary events. We learn of their joys and misfortunes, their problems and confrontations with politicians , their meteoric rise to fame and their plunge to ruin. Diamonds in the desert is more than a human and poignant story. It is a history of diamonds and of South West Africa/Namibia, which makes it not only fascinating reading but instant Africana.".

"Om soos die woordvoerders van die Nasionale Party en die regering die strydpunt te verteenwoordig as 'n blote keuse wat by die blanke alleen berus om te deel of nie te deel nie, is om die blanke se ondergang te verseker en te bespoedig. … My ideaal is 'n gemeenskap waar wet en orde gegrond is op 'n beskaafde regsorde en geregtigheid; waar vooroordeel wyk voor kennis; waar ons verskille en eienaardighede gerespekteer word; waar die volle ontplooiing van die talente van ons hele bevolking verwelkom word in plaas van gevrees word; waar die bydraes van 'n ieder en elk waardeer word; waar ons saam kan bou aan 'n gelukkige en voorspoedige toekoms.".
