[NATAL REGIONAL SURVEY]
Baumannville. A Study of an Urban African Community

Very good condition. 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.".

BIRKBY, CAREL
Zulu Journey

Cover in removable protector; spine has pale discoloration and is slightly worn at extremities; previous owner's name stencilled on front free endpaper and signed on front pastedown; some foxing to endpapers, outer leaves and page edges; spine a little cocked. '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.
