ARNOLD, W. E.
The Goldbergs of Leigh Ranch
(Bulawayo: Books of Zimbabwe, 1980) 0869202227. . Signed by the author on the title page, with his presentation inscription to the front free endpaper. 8vo; original green boards, lettered in gilt on spine; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. xv + (i) + 140, incl. index; colour frontis. portrait; plates. Dustwrapper partially very lightly tanned, with some foxing to reverse side; a little foxing to edges and endpapers, occasional fox spot elsewhere. Very good condition. "The fourth volume in the Men of Our Time series, this work is, in fact, the story of a family and their farm - the Goldberg family who have been established in Zimbabwe since 1912. Most of the children of Simon and Esther Goldberg - five sons and two daughters - grew up in the country and all of them have made significant contributions to its evolution from a primitive area of south-central Africa to a community with a progressive agricultural industry, a considerable mining industry, broadly based manufacturing concerns and a sophisticated economy. The Goldberg brothers have played a part in all these developments but their major share has been in farming. Their great agricultural enterprise, Leigh Ranch in the eastern part of the country, was in its heyday one of the largest tobacco producers as well as the home of an outstanding cattle herd. Along with their farming activities, all members of the family took a notable part in the general life of the community, the sisters as distinguished nurses and the brothers in local and national organisations devoted to agricultural and charitable interests.".

VARIOUS AUTHORS
Outpost. Stories of the Police of Rhodesia
(Cape Town: Books of Africa, 1970). . Illustrated by Penny Miller. Large 8vo; pictorial boards; pp. 293; plates; line drawings. Cover rubbed, irregularly sunned and a little fishmothed; gift inscription to front free endpaper; edges browned and spotted; foxing to endpapers and outer leaves, occasionally elsewhere. Good. A miscellany of stories from the 80-year history of the British South Africa Police (BSAP). "The beginning of the British South Africa Police came on 15th August, 1885, at Barkly West (near Kimberley) when enrolment commenced for what was named the Bechuanaland Border Police. The Warren Expedition had just concluded its task of pacifying the disturbed no-mans-land where the frontiers of the Cape Colony, the South African Republic (Transvaal), and the territory of the Botswana tribes met in a confusion of claims and political rivalries... Law and order in Rhodesia has become synonymous with the unimpeachable and impartial character of its police force. Throughout the 150,333 square-mile area of beautiful winderness which makes up the country, it became possible for any man to travel at will without fear of molestation or interference, and with the confidence of the knowledge that in any need, the sympathetic and ready assistance of the police could be entirely depended upon." - From the Prelude by T. V. Bulpin.

Rhodesian Epic
(Cape Town: Howard Timmins, 1966). . 4to; original red rexine, lettered in gilt on spine; pictorial dustwrapper; pictorial endpapers; pp. (viii) + 239, incl. index; profusely illustrated with contemporary photographs, etchings, facsimiles, etc. Very good dustwrapper with trace of foxing to reverse side; earlier owner's name on front pastedown and gift inscription to front free endpaper verso; old tape marks to rear free endpaper; some foxing to edges and outermost leaves; front endpaper lifting somewhat at gutter. Good to very good condition. "Two prominent historians have spent years on obtaining the material for this history of Rhodesia, a history that has nothing to do with U.D.I. as apart from the last chapter it virtually ends in the 1920's. Apart from being an ideal gift book it will interest everyone interested in the early days of the country. All the material is authentic and the adventures experienced - and so well described - will surely keep the reader entranced." - Dustwrapper blurb. "Rhodesian Epic is a collection of pictures that tells the story of Rhodesia from the earliest times down to the granting of self-government in 1923. The aim has been to convey visually a series of events that are normally described only in words; with this end in view the text has been kept to a minimum. Pictures, of course, cannot reflect the Rhodesian story in its entirety but they do capture much of the drama and splendid richness of the country's past." - From the Preface.

BENT, J. THEODORE
The Ruined Cities of Mashonaland
(Bulawayo: Books of Rhodesia, 1969). . Rhodesiana Reprint Library Gold Series, volume 5. Facsimile reprint of the Longmans 3rd edition of 1896. 8vo; original purple cloth blocked in silver gilt; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. (iv) + xxix + (i) + 427, incl. index, + original publisher's catalogue; plates; line drawings in text. Dustwrapper ever so slightly rubbed; trace of foxing to endpapers. Very good to near fine condition. "James Theodore Bent ... undertook three expeditions to Africa, one of these - his year spent examining Zimbabwe - being the subject of this work. He was the first archaeologist to excavate at Zimbabwe, following exactly 20 years after Carl Mauch who investigated the ruins in 1871. Other work in Africa was done in Eritrea, Abyssinia and in the Sudan. He subsequently led several expeditions to Arabia where he contracted malaria from which he died, in London, on May 5, 1897. The Ruined Cities of Mashonaland is, apart from it archaeological contribution, valuable for its description of the Mashonas and pioneer days of the Chartered Company's administration of Mashonaland. It is the best known of his book having run to three editions. The work is well illustrated with engravings from photographs and sketches by Mrs. Bent who was his constant companion on his travels.".

BLENNERHASSETT, ROSE, AND LUCY SLEEMAN
Adventures in Mashonaland by Two Hospital Nurses
(Bulawayo: Books of Rhodesia, 1975) 0869200143. . Text facsimile of the Macmillan edition of 1893. Volume Eight in the Rhodesiana Reprint Library Gold Series. 8vo; original dark green boards, lettered in gilt on spine; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. (viii) + xii + 340 + 8; plates, incl. map. Very good dustwrapper has two short closed tears to top edge and small impression corresponding with point midway along upper joint; bottom edge of boards very slightly shelf-rubbed; earlier owner's name and collector's bookplate to front endpaper; edges a bit foxed, occasional fox spot elsewhere. Very good condition. "The fever swamps and lion-infested mountain fastnesses which barred the eastern gateway to the Mashonaland of 1891 was no place for refined young ladies, but neither these natural barriers nor the Charter Company's restriction on entry of women deterred Nurses Blennerhassett, Sleeman and Welby from accepting Bishop Knight-Bruce's invitation to set up a mission hospital near Penhalonga... The story of the development of their medical services in the face of extreme privation and natural hazards is one of the outstanding tales of Rhodesia's pioneer women and a laudable chapter in the history of nursing in southern Africa.".

Large 4to; original brown boards; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 224; lavishly illustrated with reproductions of Craig Bone's paintings and line drawings. Dustwrapper slightly rubbed and edgeworn; bump to tail of spine; scattered foxing. Very good condition. Beautiful evocation of the Zambesi Valley, immediately recognisable to any who have been there.

Fine paintings capture details of sights as magnificent as a cheetah chasing an impala across the African plains, and an elephant covering the carcass of a dead relative with branches.".

World to World on Rhodesia's Magic Carpet
(Bulawayo, Books of Rhodesia, 1974). . 208 x 278mm; pictorial wraps slightly soiled; gift inscription on title page; pp. (ii) + 50; cartoon drawings and commentary. Good condition. "I dedicate this book to those people a part of whose emergence I have tried to illustrate. Because they so readily enjoy the funny side of their own lives, with a philosophy which I admire, I have tried to go along with them, without derision, and with, I hope, a degree of humility, for what European can ever pretend to know all their laws, customs and beliefs, which, although unwritten, are as firmly observed as though they were deep cut upon the rocks of Rhodesia.".

COOPER-CHADWICK, J.
Three Years with Lobengula and Experiences in South Africa
(Bulawayo: Books of Rhodesia, 1975) 0869201190. . Ex-library copy. Rhodesiana Reprint Library - Silver Series, Volume One. Facsimile reproduction of the 1894 edition, with new Foreword and illustrations. 8vo; pictorial boards after the Cassell edition; pictorial dustwrapper, in vinyl protector; pp. (xvi) 160 + original publisher's catalogue; folding map; plates; adverts, as in original edition.

Good reading copy. "[The] major portion of Three Years with Lobengula is taken up with descriptions of the Ndebele, their military and social organisation, their customs and the character of their king ('his features were coarse, and exhibited great cunning and cruelty ...' but he was 'by far the most intelligent in the nation'), their feasts and ceremonies, and of the competitive manoeuvrings of the rival white supplicants. Cooper-Chadwick's is one of the best accounts of the tensions at Bulawayo and Umvutchwa in the winter of 1890 - tensions which could have erupted in open warfare when, in mid-year, the Pioneer Column entered Mashonaland.".

(Johannesburg: Picador Africa, 2004) 1770100016. . 234 x 153 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. (xii) + 256. Fine condition. "When Alexandra 'Bo' Fuller returns to her parents' farm in Zambia, she meets their charismatic neighbour, 'K', a hauntingly beautiful creature with a violent talent for survival. Helplessly fascinated by this man of extremes, she becomes enmeshed in the stories of his life and recklessly curious about his scars, both physical and emotional. Bo and K embark on a journey together, each searching for the answers that might offer some kind of relief from the constant sting of their shared history. This is their story - an exploration of life and death and the fear of living and dying and the difficulty of separating love and judgement from passion and duty.".

It is a story which is bound up with the development, political, economic and social, of the two Rhodesias, which its newspapers have served since the beginnings of European colonisation. It is a truly Rhodesian enterprise which through the years has endeavored, honestly and faithfully, to serve the best interests of the two countries. In 70 years it has grown from a mud-and-grass hut producing a small cyclostyled sheet in the pioneer settlement of Fort Salisbury to a mammoth organisation publishing four daily newspapers, two Sunday papers and two thrice-weekly papers in Southern and Northern Rhodesia.".

GARSTIN, CROSBIE
The Sunshine Settlers

The settlement is South Africa and the time immediately before the War which indeed breaks out in the final chapters and enables the three chief characters to carry their good spirits to Flanders. But it is their life in Africa that takes up the greater part of the book - the flora and fauna of their surroundings, their servants, pets, sports (including donkey polo), and adventures generally.".
