No Outspan

Reitz, Deneys

London: Faber & Faber, 1944. Published in wartime Britain on economy paper. In this his third book Deneys Reitz, author of Commando and Trekking On, in 1944 High Commissioner for South Africa and South African Minister to the Belgian, Dutch and Greek Convernments, continues the story of his life. Deneys Reitz has divided his time between politics, the law, and exploration; and on special missions has visited London, the Maginot Line, Portugal, Franco Spain, and Ireland, where he attempted to persuade Mr. de Valera to co-operate in the prosecution of the war. As Deputy Prime Minister of South Africa, and a member of the Government and an M.P. for many years, politics naturally play a part in his book, but in South Africa politics are so live and virile that they vie with his big game hunting experiences in interest. They reach a climax in the conflict with General Hertzog, and we learn the inside story of the extra osdinarily dramatic events which led up to South Africa's entry into the war. We do not think any book has been so successful in giving us the feel of the country, both physical and spiritual; or, most important, in foreshadowing South Africa's course in future years. Although a book of active adventure, No Outspan is at heart the story of a man's love for his country and of a life dedicated to furthering its unity within the British Commonwealth of Nations. . Hard Cover. Good. 5 1/2" Wide - 9" Tall.

London: Faber and Faber, 1943. The book once belonged to the "Univerity Medical Student Society". Its stamp is on the front paste down and front end paper, as well as a hand written accession number. There is also an ownership signature on the front end paper, apart from which the book is in excellent condition. Spectator Review 9 March, 1944: "Tins record of later years, in which the present High Commissioner for South Africa continues the story of his life begun in Commando and Trekking On, throws interesting light on several political events and personalitiew: notably on General Hertzog's defeat over the question of South African neutrality at the outbreak of war. It was evidently a touch-and-go matter in which the elements of chance and temperament played the decisive part that they so often do in history: if the Parliament had not met to settle a formal constitutional point at exactly that week-end and if the General had handled the situation less tactlessly, the issue might well have been different. There are other things which also show up the sharper for the author's frank, unanalytical and at times naïf recounting of them—what the armistice meant to a soldier in the trenches in 1918 and the way demobilisation worked last time, for instance, and how the Native Question presents itself in every- day life to a typical South African. There is much here to make lovers of South Africa nostalgic and a good deal for the envy of English public men. The writer is a man who never hunted wild animals except for food or photographs, and who was responsible for making the whole Union a sanctuary where "no wild bird may be captured or caged." As Minister for Crown Lands and Irrigation, Deneys Reitz did not run his office from a desk, but trekked to the spot to plan water-courses, preserve woodlands (like the Addo forest), prospect for harbours and settle tribal disputes outstanding, with war-dances taking the place of constituency bun- fights, and it is a tribute to South African politics that the pre- servation of the Kruger National Park cut right across party squabbles. Like his lead n. and friend, General Smuts, Deneys Reitz has never let his horizon be bounded by red tape." Includes two fold out maps.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
