RICHARDS, HYLDA M.
False Dawn. The Story of Dan Judson, Pioneer
(Bulawayo: Books of Rhodesia, 1974). . 8vo; original salmon-coloured boards, lettered in gilt on spine and upper cover; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. (xii) + 230 + (x), incl. index; plates. Spine panel sunned; front free endpaper removed; tape marks and some foxing to endpapers. Absent front free endpaper notwithstanding, good to very good condition. "Dan Judson, whose adventurous youth in Cape Town during the stirring days of the old Cape Colony makes fascinating reading, is perhaps best remembered for his leadership in the Mazoe Patrol episode of the Mashona Rebellion of 1896. This was but one aspect of a full life which centred around his work as a telegraphist when this medium was the foremost means of communication. At the age of 29, he was appointed to reconstruct, reorganise and take charge of the Telegraph in Mashonaland. The accounts of his field work, particularly the many dangerous jobs undertaken in maintaining communications during the Rebellion, are of great interest. He played important roles in the Gwelo laager, on which there is an informative chapter, and with the Charter Patrol. Dan took part in the relief of Mafeking, and was in charge of the Guard of Honour at Rhodes's funeral in the Matopos. In World War I he served in the Balkans for several years with the Royal Welsh Fusiliers. Although the belated efforts of Judge Vintcent to win recognition for Judson's meritorious part in the Mazoe Patrol were unsuccessful, they bring to light a new facet of this historic event.".

Broadly, the biographical entries in this encyclopedia are of people who have made an impact internationally in a particular field of endeavour, be it sport, science, art or any other field, and those whose role in the past and the present has been a significant factor in the history and development of this country.".

SHEERS, OWEN
The Dust Diaries
(London: Faber and Faber, 2004) 0571210163. . 8vo; original black boards; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. (x) + 310; portrait; map. Slight curl to top edge of dustwrapper; earlier owner's name signed on front free endpaper. Near fine condition. "When Owen Sheers discovers a book in his father's study he stumbles upon the life of an obscure relative: Arthur Cripps, lyric poet and maverick missionary to Rhodesia. Compelled by the description of Cripps' extraordinary life in Africa, Sheers embarks on a journey through contemporary Zimbabwe in an attempt to better understand his ancestor's devotion to the country and its people and the dramatic, often bloody, differences that echo across the years. Arriving in Africa at the turn of the last century, Cripps establishes his own mission at Maronda Mashanu; the neighbouring European community soon grow suspicious of Cripps' unorthodox methods, and conflict with the British South Africa Company ensues... The Dust Diaries is a richly peopled, bold and beautiful testimony - an investigation into the nature of love, loss, family and belonging, and the story of how one man's life can resonate down the years in the lives of others.".
