Obed Mutezo. The Mudzimo Christian Nationalist
(Nairobi: Oxford University Press, 1970). . 213 x 138 mm; wrappers; pp. vii + (iii) + 210; map. Some spotting to top edge; very slightly rubbed. Very good condition. "As the author of the best-selling African Nationalism, Reverend Sithole, the president of the Zimbabwe African National Union (of which Mutezo is a district treasurer) is of course telling more with this biography than the story of a friend and colleague. It is not a polemic, nor a party manifesto: but it is an exploration of the roots of African nationalism in Rhodesia which explains what commitment to the nationalist movement means at the local level and in the rural areas. Thus, in analysing the sources of strength in a humble man in the face of persecution, Reverend Sithole is also revealing the sources of that same strength in the movement as a whole.".

Rhodesia and Its Government
(London: Smith, Elder, 1898). . 8vo; original red cloth, lettered in gilt on spine; pp. xi + (iii) + 352, incl. index; plates; folding map. Corners bumped; backstrip sunned, somewhat frayed at extremities, with code to tail; "Mudie's Select Library" label to upper cover; pocket to front pastedown, and label remnants to free endpapers; library hand-stamps to flyleaf, frontis. recto, and another page of prelims.; penned and stamped codes to title leaf verso; occasional fox spot.; discreet archival tape reinforcing to gutter of folding map. Fair to good condition. (Mendelssohn II, p. 495, Hosken, p. 200) 'Mr. Thomson is a severe critic of the Chartered Company, which he says "as a government, has no claim to indulgence." He maintains that "it has given cause for suspicion to the Boers, to the Portuguese, and to the neighbouring native states, and it has cruelly wronged and oppressed those natives who have been placed under its control... For these things Mr. Rhodes is directly responsible." He considers that the causes of the rebellion in Matabeleland and Mashonaland were the maladministration of affairs in the country, the appointment of native police, the irritation caused by the shooting of the natives' cattle owing to rinderpest regulations, and to the reality of forced labour imposed upon the native races. It is asserted that the natives said, "Our country is gone, our cattle have gone, our people have scattered, we have nothing to live for ... we are the slaves of the white man, we are nobody, and have no rights or laws of any kind... Could there be," asks the author, "a sadder commentary upon the results of our occupation of Matabeleland?" ' - Mendelssohn.

A Visit to Lobengula in 1889
(Pietermaritzburg: Shuter and Shooter, 1947). . 4to; original crimson cloth, lettered in gilt on spine; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. viii + 192; line drawings; map. Dustwrapper tanned, foxed and slightly creased; earlier owner's bookplate to front free endpaper; edges foxed, occasional fox spot elsewhere; slight bump to bottom fore-corner of upper board. Very good condition. Lovely illustrations. (Hosken, p. 218) "An adventurous and closely observant youth of nineteen, he in 1889 intermitted his medical studies in Edinburgh to join a party in search of a prospecting grant from Lobengula. He came out at a critical time. The Rudd Concession had led to the establishment of the B.S.A. Company under Royal Charter. Then came rumours of 'Rhodes's Impi', the Pioneers with their police escort. Most of the indunas and of the Matabele people, especially the young warriors, saw in this movement the threat of annihilation to their national independence. Amid this seething fear and discontent, the King had to move most circumspectly. Not unwishful to help the white men, he dared not openly run counter to the temper of his subjects. How he tried to compromise and how dangerously white men then lived about the King's kraal the ensuing narrative reveals in clear and crisp detail, and no Rhodesian with right pride in his country can afford to neglect this chance to study a thrilling situation through the testimony of an eye-witness.".

Reizen Met Cecil Rhodes Door de Wilde Wereld Van Zuid-Afrika. Naar Den Oorspronkelijken Tekst in Het Zuid-Afrikaansch Tijdschrift Van 1891 en 1893 en de Engelsche Uitgave Onder Den Titel: With Rhodes in Mashonaland
(Amsterdam: J. H. de Bussy, 1896). . 8vo; original pale grey cloth, lettered in gilt on spine, and will black tsessebe head to upper board; pp. vii + (i) + 327; large, folding colour map. Bottom fore-corners of boards turned; backstrip a little darkened, and gilt title dull, with light wear at head and tail; foxing to edges, endpapers and outermost leaves; upper hinge starting; earlier owner's signed on reverse of front free endpaper. Good condition. Dutch text. (Mendelssohn I, p. 459) 'This edition contains a Preface of seven pages by "Africanus," and a map of South Africa.' - Mendelssohn. Concerning the original English edition, Mendelssohn writes: "The author accompanied Mr. Rhodes to Mashonaland during his visit to that country in 1890 and 1891. The volume is written in a humorous and chatty style, which brings home the real life on the veld with all its discomforts, its accidents, and its charm, while there is the added interest of reading about the greatest South African statesman, engaged in the life he most enjoyed. Many well-known people were met during the two trips, notably Sir Henry Loch, Lord Randolph Churchill, Sir Sidney Shippard, Dr. Jameson, Mr. Selous, Major Johnson, Khama, and many others. A few passages of arms are recounted between De Waal and Lord Randolph, owing to some disparaging remarks made by the latter on the Afrikander farmers and the Boers generally. Churchill also came into argument with Mr. Rhodes on the subject of the gold prospects of Mashonaland, about which he (Lord Randolph) was rather sceptical." - Mendelssohn I, p. 458.

Valley of the Ironwoods
(Cape Town: T. V. Bulpin, 1972) 094995604X. . Sub-title: A personal record of ten years served as District Commissioner in Rhodesia's largest administrative area, Nuanetsi, in the south-eastern Lowveld. Squarish 8vo; original pictorial boards; endpaper map; pp. (x) + 397; plates. Edges very slightly rubbed; hand-stamp to front free endpaper, and earlier owner's bookplate to half-title; a little foxing to edges and outermost leaves, occasional fox spot elsewhere. Very good condition. 'I spotted the old, spider-wheeled, ox-drawn road grader lying abandoned and rusting on the grass verge of the tar-strip road which then connected Fort Victoria with Beitbridge and knew I had reached the spot where we had to turn left. I drove on down a rough, corrugated track for two miles and by turning my head sideways as I slipped past a ragged thorn tree, I was able to decipher the legend on a faded blue Automobile Association notice which hung by one nail from the dust-streaked trunk. It read "NUANETSI". I pulled up my old Chevrolet sedan and glanced back to see if my wife, Delia, was in sight. She was driving her Ford Zodiac and both our vehicles were laden to window level with suitcases and small household treasures, two black and tan sausage dogs named Admiral Carl Doenitz and Admiral von Hipper and a gentle golden spaniel called Zaka. Somewhere in the dust behind us was a large pantechnicon, grinding along with our furniture and effects and two African house servants, who insisted on travelling with their own precious goods and chattels.'.
