A comprehensive picture of the community of Baumannville, an African township built in 1913 and probably ultimately cleared of African housing when the area was rezoned under the Group Areas Act. Vividly depicts the practical application of the policy of racial segregation, as well as the racial tensions still existing between Africans and Indians in the Durban area not long after the 1949 and 1953 riots..

ARNOLD, PAM
Tom and Ethel. The Story of a Soldier Settlement
(Pietermaritzburg, the author, 1990). . 210 x 148mm; pictorial wraps very slightly marked; pp. viii + 48; line drawings in text; maps inside covers. Signed by the author. Very good condition. "Tom and Ethel is a true story. The wryly humorous sketch by a daughter of her parents, veiled though it is in the innocent optimism of childhood, is based on serious and detailed research into a forgotten chapter of South African history, the Soldier-Settlements of World War 1, into the faulty legislation that structured the settlements and the climatic and economic conditions that spelt ruin. Pam Arnold has spun the historic coin and come up with endearing human faces. Capt. Tom Garstang, M.C, was that rare species of South African, a survivor of the battle of Delville Wood. Ethel was an attractive, gay, intelligent and cultivated young woman of the Twenties. A handsome couple whose battle with mother nature at Malonjeni proved a heartbreak. A gallant couple who, in defeat, faced with splendid dignity the derision of homespun locals who had not been forced to mature in the poppy-strewn fields of Flanders and France.".

ASMAL, KADER (PREFACE), AND B. WALFORD (PREFACE)
Mgeni Catchment Management Plan. A Framework for an Integrated Water Management Plan for the Mgeni Catchment
(Pretoria & Pietermaritzburg, Department of Water Affairs and Forestry/Umgeni Water, 1996). . 298 x 210 mm; pictorial wraps; pp. 60; maps; tables; photographs. Light soiling to cover. Very good condition. "The Mgeni River catchment is one of the most developed catchments in South Africa, providing water to over 3.5 million people and supporting an area which is responsible for about 65% of the total economic production in the KwaZulu-Natal Province. Unfortunately this extensive development has stressed the natural resources of the Mgeni River catchment with serious consequences: people are getting sick and dying from using contaminated water; costly infrastructure has to be developed to import water from neighbouring catchments; the costs of treating water are increasing, due to pollution; and the ecological health and resource quality of the catchment is deteriorating. The Department of Water Affairs and Forestry and Umgeni Water jointly initiated and funded a catchment management plan study for the Mgeni River catchment. The objective of the plan is to mitigate existing problems and prevent further deterioration in the catchment, enable the water resources to be sustainably managed and to provide sufficient water of adequate quality to meet basic needs while supporting economic development and maintaining the healthy functioning of the natural environment.".

BADIAN, SEYDOU
The Death of Chaka. A Play in Five Tableaux
(Nairobi, Oxford University Press, 1968). . "New Drama from Africa" series. Translated from the French ("La Mort de Chaka") by Clive Wake. 183 x 121 mm; pictorial wraps; pp. (iv) + 47. From the collection of Natal historian John Wright, and signed by him on first page. Sporadic light foxing. Very good condition. "Seydou Badian's version of the Chaka theme is also based on the hero's death, but the action of the play begins some days before the actual death and is mainly concerned with the arguments for and against Chaka's assassination. Badian wrote his play in the post-independence period, and it reflects the common preoccupation at this time with two major interrelated problems: the need to create national unity once political freedom had been obtained, and the role of the all-powerful almost messianic leader.".

'Here at last is the book that was needed, and it comes at the right moment, just when the primitive native territories are beginning to feel the influence of Western civilisation - just as, in the author's phrase, Zululand is beginning to wear trousers instead of the red blanket. These storied territories will soon have lost their real colour and romance. Carel Birkby has captured and preserved that colour as the "twilight" is falling.' - Lawrence G. Green's foreword.

"Translated from the Zulu, this book is the personal testimony of the late Zulu politician and early trade unionist, A. W. G. Champion. It is a contribution to contemporary Africana and a source for the discovery of African views on a variety of current issues. Known as Mahlathi Amnyama - 'The Dark Forest' - Champion was a prominent, outspoken and controversial public figure in Natal and Zululand from the 1920s to the 1970s. An accomplished pamphleteer and publicist, he concluded his extraordinary career by writing a series of columns for the Zulu newspaper, Ilanga, in which he entertained and outraged his readers for ten years, from 1964 to 1974, airing his opinions forcefully on current issues of African life in town and countryside and recounting the history of his times.".

CHILD, DAPHNE
Charles Smythe. Pioneer, Premier and Administrator of Natal
(Cape Town: Struik, 1973) 869770306. . 8vo; original red boards; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. xi + (i) + 275, incl. index; plates. Good to very good condition. Dustwrapper a bit rubbed and edgeworn; some foxing to edges and endpapers, occasional fox spot elsewhere. Very good condition. 'This book, based on the hitherto unpublished diary and letters of the Hon. Charles Smythe, throws fresh light on life in Natal during the period 1872-1918 when momentous events were taking place in South Africa. In 1872 Charles Smythe, then nineteen, left his Scottish home Methven Castle, to go to Natal as a protégé of Herbert Rhodes, eldest brother of Cecil Rhodes who was already making his name at Kimberley. Charles's first attempts to make his fortune failed (they included gold-digging in the Eastern Transvaal), but he eventually settled down to stock-farming in the Natal Midlands... In 1905 he reached the peak of his career as Prime Minister and Colonial Secretary of Natal. In 1906 he won a political victory over Britain's Colonial Secretary (his cousin, Lord Elgin) in a clash concerning a vital constitutional issue. Charles was a delegate to the National Convention of 1908, and after Union in 1910 he became Administrator of Natal, a post he held with great success until his death in 1918... A descendant of William the Silent, Prince of Orange, the much loved and respected Charles Smythe had the gift of being able to "walk with kings, nor lose the common touch".'.

COLENSO, JOHN WILLIAM
The Good Tidings of Great Joy, Which Shall Be to All People. A Sermon Preached in the Cathedral Church of Norwich, on Sunday, August 13, 1854, on the Occasion of Ordaining Henry Callaway, M.D. As a Missionary Among the Heathen in the Diocese of Natal
(Pietermaritzburg: photocopy by University of Natal Library, [1854]). . Copy of the original sermon, published in London by Bell in 1854. 8vo; black rexine over boards, lettered in gilt on upper cover; pp. (ii) + 20. Library codes, labels and hand-stamps to endpapers; hand-stamp and code to preliminary page; some pencilled notations to first leaf. Very good condition. Practically unobtainable in original form (listed in SABIB 1, p. 584), and found in only a small number of repositories, this little volume records a landmark in the history of Natal and the Nguni peoples of southern Africa. Henry Callaway, though an amateur, became the outstanding anthropologist of his generation among the Xhosas and Zulus. It was through Colenso's offices that Callaway obtained his early appointment in Natal, an event recorded in this ordination sermon. However, the two men went their separate ways, and Callaway evidently did not feel himself beholden to Colenso to the extent of supporting him in the theological controversy that erupted following the latter's 'apostasy', choosing instead to remain aloof from the debate..
