ACUTT, RENAULT COURTNEY
Reminiscences of a Rand Pioneer. The Memoirs of Renault Courtney Acutt
(Johannesburg: Ravan Press, 1977) 0869750631. . Edited by Walter Saunders. 8vo; original black boards, lettered in gilt on spine; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 165; photographs. Dustwrapper somewhat foxed and edgeworn; trace of spotting to top edge and endpapers. Very good condition. "This absorbing book is the autobiography of a member of an old Natal family. Born in 1876, Renault Acutt spent his early years in Verulam on the North Coast, went to school at the Berea Academy in Durban and, in 1891, at the age of fifteen, started work as an office boy for a firm in Commissioner Street, Johannesburg, then barely in its second year. He spent the better part of the next thirty years on the Rand, witnessing its growth and contributing to it as a contractor to the mines and later as a cinema entrepreneur (he was the first general manager of Africa's Amalgamated Theatres). It is his adventures in the 1890's and in the early part of this century that give the book its absorbing interest. There were, for example, his brushes with the Zarps (South African Republic Police) and his cycle ride from Johannesburg to Durban on the 'roads' of 1897, to attend a cousin's twenty-first birthday party. He remembers the legendary figures of Johannesburg's entertainment world in those early days (Leonard Rayne and Jimmy Hyde among them). He also describes his boyhood friendship with the first great Springbok cricketer, Jimmy Sinclair.".

Overdrafts and Overwork. Memories of a South African Banker

Dustwrapper a bit rubbed and edgeworn; edges, endpapers, and outermost leaves foxed. Good to very good condition. "It was in 1891 that Hendrik Altmann arrived in the Transvaal from his native Holland, to find his life's work with the Netherlands Bank of South Africa. President Kruger figures as just another Bank customer. We are back in the days when clerks were sent from the Rand to Pretoria by train carrying sacks full of golden sovereigns loose in the compartment. We learn of the strange life in a Johannesburg Bank during the Boer War - and are back in Potchefstroom when it was still a garrison town with thousands of Boer Tommies; we note the reactions of the 1914 Rebellion and what happened inside the banks when during the Gold Standard crisis the staff sat up all night making up parcels of sovereigns. One delightful chapter recounts Hendrik Altmann's adventures on a walking tour through Natal, when he was continually mistaken for a hobo.".

Good. "President Kruger het kort voor sy dood die inhoud van hierdie gedenkskrifte aan sy privaat-sekretaris, mnr. H. C. Bredell, en die voormalige onder-staatssekretaris, mnr. Piet Grobler, gedikteer. Dit is suiwer herinnerings wat die president uit sy geheue aan sy vriende vertel het. Hy het slegs oor amptelike bronne beskik oor die gedeeltes in verband met die staatkundige gebeurtenisse van die Jameson-inval tot die uitbreek van die Tweede Vryheidsoorlog. Die bewerkers het ook daarna gestreef om in die Afrikaanse vertaling so min moontlik van die oorspronklike Nederlandse teks af te wyk, sodat hierdie werk die eerste in Afrikaans is wat die lewe van ons gevierde staatspresident van sy jeug tot sy laaste lewensjare die volledigste en getrouste weergee. Die boek is versier met enkele seldsame en unieke foto's.".

Here we read of the fortunes won and lost by men whose names are not even a legend any more; Louis Trichardt comes to life again together with a host of other characters whose lives were spent in a country in some ways comparable to the Wild West of America, when law and order was conspicuous by its absence. A book for all who like to read of the early days of this country when everything was in the raw and a nation was being built.".

BULPIN, T.V.
Storm over the Transvaal
(Cape Town, Howard Timmins, 1955). . First edition. Illustrations by C.T. Astley Maberly. 8vo; original boards; price-clipped pictorial dustwrapper; endpaper map; pp 319 (including index) Dustwrapper (housed in removable protector) a little edgeworn and foxed, with loss to tail of sunned spine panel; boards a trifle mottled; some foxing to endpapers and edges; pages browned, owing to paper stock used. Good condition. "Here is the dramatic story of the Transvaal from 1884 until 1900 - a period which covers a singularly lurid stretch of South Africa's past. All the fantastic intrigue, corruption and double-crossing which led to the grim climax of the Anglo-Boer War, is described with a wealth of detail and anecdote. The remarkable story of the Witwatersrand provides an often hilarious background to a history of events so important, that they are still of vital interest to every South African of to-day.".
