Index. 8vo, grey cloth, green lettering to spine. “In May 1936 Benito Mussolini proclaimed the establishment of an Italian empire in East Africa. Ethiopia, the last African country free from foreign domination, had been conquered by the legions of the new Caesar and was annexed to Italy. The fallof Ethiopia was more than an incident in the later history of European imp erialism in Africa; it was also a watershed in the modern history of Europe. The affair was, in the words of Joseph Avenol, secretary-general of the League of Nations, “a European poison." And its most important victim was the League itself.” (from the dj). Contents : 1.

2 BROTZ, Howard. Black Jews of Harlem : Negro Nationalism and the Dilemmas of Negro Leadership. Signed copy

BROTZ, Howard M. The Black Jews of Harlem : Negro Nationalism and the Dilemmas of Negro Leadership. New York : Schocken Books, (1970). First Schocken Edition. Pp [i]-x,(2),1-144,+ 4 pp photos. Index. 8vo, illustrated reddish-brown card covers. In the Sourcebooks in Negro History series. “Dating fromthe heyday of Garveyism in the 1920's, Harlem's Congregation of Commandmen t Keepers, under the leadership of Rabbi Wentworth A. Matthew, represents an important stage of the black man's spiritual odyssey in the New World. Kept from all communion with his past through slavery and later stripped of the legal equality gained during Reconstruction, the American Negro has had to face the terrible task of creating ex nihilo his very identity. The sustaining myth of an Ethiopian-Hebrew origin , however inaccurate and set against a white Christianity, has sometimes put this small sect on the path toward “remoralization,” shared dignity, and a precious sense of self-reclamation. Dr. Brotz extrapolates from their achievement to a genuine and original analysis of the Negro's life style and place in a society defined by the white man. The political and historical material available here provide an indispensable introduction to what W.E.B. Dubois prophetically called the problem of the twentieth century, the problem of the color line.” - from theback cover. George Parkin Grant (1918-1988) was a Canadian philosopher, te acher and political commentator, whose popular appeal peaked in the late 1960s and 1970s. He is best known for his nationalism, political conservatism, comments on technology, pacifism, Christian faith, and conservative viewsregarding abortion and is credited as one of Canada's most original thinke rs. Grant was a faculty member at Dalhousie University, Halifax, N.S., twice (1947-1960, 1980-1988). Spine sunned, else very good. Signed with inscription from the author to George P. Grant. 30.00

Rowland War Publications, Johannesburg, 2004, ISBN:0958459037 
DUCKWORTH, Fred. A Far From Ordinary Life : A Diary of Adventures in an Africa now Past. Illustrated by Elise van der Heijden. Johannesburg: Rowland Ward Publications, (2004). First Printing. Pp. (3),iv-xii,1-244. Illustrated, largely in black and white (but occasionally in colour). Map endpapers. 4to, black leather with gilt lettering to spine. Foreword by Craig Boddington. "Fred Duckworth's unique story sweeps through thirty years, from his earliest youthful experiences of living and hunting in India during WWII to the last days of the Empire of the Lion of Judah in Ethiopia. We travel with him to the Terai jungles on the Indo-Nepalese border and the high Himalayasof the Northwest Frontier Province in the last years of the British Raj in pre-independence, pre-partition India. Returning to Kenya and Tanganyika, bent on a professional hunting career, Fred Duckworth's travels take us to Malawi. We join him, as the Provincial Game Warden of the southern region, on the hunts for the two notorious man-eating lions of Kasupe and Mandimba,when the hunters became the hunted. As the Wildlife & National Parks Advis er to the government of the last Emperor of Ethiopia, we are given an insight into the little known truths of Ethiopian wildlife conservation in that bewilderingly beautiful country and its often misunderstood, fractious, fiercely independent people. There is much more, of tiger and markhor, of elephant and killer crocodile, of good professional hunters and poor ones too. It is no exaggeration to say that Fred Duckworth has experienced a 'Far from Ordinary Life' in an Africa, which alas for many of us, is gone forever."- from the dustjacket.

7 ELLERMAN, J.R. and T.C.S. MORRISON-SCOTT. Checklist of Palaearctic and Indian Mammals 1758 to 1946. Second Edition.
Trustees of the British Museum (Natural History, London, 1966, 1966 
ELLERMAN, J.R. and T.C.S. MORRISON-SCOTT. Checklist of Palaearctic and Indian Mammals 1758 to 1946. Second Edition. London : Trustees of the British Museum (Natural History), July 1966. Pp (6),1-810,+ folding map frontispiece. Index. Thick 8vo, green cloth, gilt lettering on maroon panel to spine.

"It is a commonplace that novelty exercises such an attraction that it frequently diverts to itself a measure of attention out of all proportion to the true value of the subject or object. In science the field of every new discovery forthwith becomes the focal point round which attention centres, to the detriment of other fields more important but less glamorous. The tide of geographical exploration in the nineteenth century with its accompanying flood of zoological novelties exercised precisely this effect with the result that, whereas the vertebrate faunas of the Ethiopian, Oriental, Nearctic, and even the Australian and Neotropical regions, have been more or less comprehensively listed in recent years, there have been few comparable works relating to the Palaearctic region where taxonomic zoology was born and cradled. The present work, whose geographical limits have been selected to link up with Chasen's (1940) list of Malayan mammals and Allen's (1939) similar list for the Ethiopian region, is an attempt to remedy this lack of balance in the field of systematic mammalogy.

The authors have succeeded in producing a list which is not merely one of the working tools that every systematist must make for his own use. It is, in fact, a critical revision, shorn of all detailed argument, based on the unrivalled collections of the Museum." - the Preface.

"The area covered by this work is the Palaearctic region and the Indian' and Indo-Chinese subdivisions of the Oriental region. Zoologists will be well aware of the difficulty in delimiting these zoogeographical areas. However, for the purposes of a list such as this, some arbitrary limit must be set. In Africa we have drawn the boundary along the parallel of 20° N. which, owing to the barrier of the Sahara, does correspond reasonably well with the facts. The boundary in Malaya has, however, been drawn in a purely arbitrary manner along the parallel of 10° N. This line has been chosen because it is the northern limit of the area covered by Chasen, 1940, Handlist of Malaysian Mammals.

The limits in point of time are from 1758 to 1946. That is to say, we have endeavoured to include all forms of recent mammals named from the tenth edition of Linnaeus up till the end of 1946, except that domestic animals, and wild mammals which have become extinct, have as a rule been omitted.

No one man can, of course, be a connoisseur of more than a small part of the class Mammalia. Nevertheless, in writing this work we have thought it worth while attempting a revision rather than making a mere nominal compilation. We have therefore re-examined all relevant monographs and revisions, in so far as they are known to us, together with the extensive study collections of the British Museum, and this checklist represents the results. Whether readers agree with our views or not, we hope that the presentation of such a survey within the covers of one book will prove useful.

There has been a considerable reduction in the number of named forms regarded as valid, though we have only proceeded with this "lumping" to the extent that the evidence before us justified it; there is probably much more to be done, and sub-species have been arranged in order of priority for the convenience of subsequent revisers.

'The term 'India' has been used throughout in its zoogeographical sense to include the modern India and Pakistan.

We have recognized 809 species of rmanmials in the Palaearctic and Indian regions as defined above." pp.1-2. With bibliography and a lengthy index.

12 MORELL, Virginia. Blue Nile : Ethiopia's River of Magic and Mystery.
National Geographic / Adventure Press, Washington, D.C., 2001, ISBN:0792279514 
MORELL, Virginia. Blue Nile : Ethiopia's River of Magic and Mystery. Washington, D.C.: National Geographic / Adventure Press, (2001). First Edition. Pp (8),[1]-324,(4),+ 16 pp. colour photographs. 8vo, blue cloth spine lettered in metallic red, off-white paper covered boards. "Sacred, mysterious, powerful, the Blue Nile has carved a deep channel through human history. From its source in the wild Ethiopian highlands, this river passes through some of the most untamed country on Earth as it rushes toward its desert rendezvous with the White Nile in Sudan. More than one adventurer has perished in the Blue Nile Corge, whose hazards range from raging rapids to menacing crocodiles to armed bandits. When National Geographic invited Virginia Morell to join its 1999 expedition -- which hoped to be the first to descend theriver in a single, uninterrupted trip from its source to the Sudan border -- she jumped at the chance to revisit Ethiopia, a land she'd come to love during a sojourn many years before. The only African country never colonized by Europeans, its history spans more than two millennia from King Menelik, said in legend to be the son of Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, to Ras Tafari, better known to the West as Haile Selassie, who ruled until his overthrow in 1974. This is an insular culture, isolated by geography and tradition, where ferenjjoch visitors are greeted with curiosity and courtesy -- and sometimes suspicion, after three decades of military rule and a long war with Eritrea. Highlighted by Nevada Wier's evocative photographs, Morell's engrossing account introduces a world where tribesmen still hunt leopards with spears, and where villagers sometimes journey for days to catch a glimpse of foreigners and their marvelous boats. We linger at an impromptu concert and feast with people who have never seen a white face before, meet patriarchs whose Christianity stretches back to the Roman Empire, and face off with Kalashnikov-toting militiamen who may not be able to read the documents they demand. By the time we reach the border town of Bumbadi, we've been taken on an unforgettable journey through time -- and among a strong peoplewho've resisted the advances of the modern world." - from the dj.
