    The Sunshine Settlers by Garstin, Crosbie

    (Bulawayo: Books of Rhodesia, 1971). Crown 8vo; original blue cloth, lettered in gilt on spine and upper cover; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. vii + (i) + 240. Dustwrapper very slightly rubbed, and sunned on spine panel; spine and portion of top edges slightly faded; trace of foxing to edges and endpapers; old price penned on front free endpaper. Good to very good condition. "Mr. Crosbie Garstin has written a book of genuine open-air humour whose unforced gaiety will keep you amused from the first page to the last. 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." .

    The Goldbergs of Leigh Ranch by Arnold, W. E

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." .

    Rare Ornately Printed Poster signed by the Prime Minister by RHODESIA AND APARTHEID

    Salisbury, Rhodesia, 1966. unbound. Outstanding memento from the illegal Unilateral Declaration of Independence, signed by Ian Smith on behalf of Rhodesia in 1965. 1 page, 13.25 x 10 inches, heavy paper -- a personalized certificate of thanks, Salisbury, Rhodesia, 1966, illustrated with the Coat of Arms and a photograph of Ian Smith, along with a message from the Government of Rhodesia to those who supported her stand for Independence during their first year of her existence, in full: "To friends who gave support to the people of RHODESIA in their stand on Independence especially "MR. RALPH DE TOLEDANO." We, the Prime Minister and people of Rhodesia, extend our grateful thanks. Conveyed on their behalf by the Friends of Rhodesia Trust." Signed by Ian Smith (in the plate) as Prime Minister. Note: Britain did not respond to the UDI with force. Instead it attempted using economic sanctions, including ending the link between Sterling and the Rhodesian currency, seizing assets and banning the import of Rhodesian tobacco. As the world watched in amazement, Britain predicted that Rhodesia would succumb to the sanctions in a matter of months. It would be 14 years before the illegal regime came to an end. The certificate is made out to Ralph De Toledano (1916 - 2007), a major figure in the Conservative Movement in the United States and a close friend of Richard Nixon. He is best known as an editor at Newsweek and the National Review and the author of more than 25 books. Fine condition.
