Item Description: (Cape Town: Human & Rousseau, 1963), 1963. First edition. Edited by Lionel Abrahams. Foreword by William Plomer. 8vo; original orange boards, lettered in gilt on spine; pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 179. Dustwrapper in excellent condition; some foxing to edges and endpapers; penned name on front free endpaper with trace of deletion fluid. Good to very good condition, in a near fine dustwrapper. "Oom Schalk Lourens, a simple old Boer who is really the embodiment of sly ambiguity, narrates these stories about the wars and loves, faiths and superstitions, ignorance, prejudice and insights, virtues and vices of a backveld Afrikaner community. The same raconteur spoke the 21 tales in MAFEKING ROAD, the widely acclaimed collection - a South African literary classic and best seller - through which the name and legend of Herman Charles Bosman has continued to grow during the decade since his death (which alone delayed the publication of a further choice of the Schalk Lourens stories). Bosman, an English-writing Afrikaner of recognised genius, gives a unique portrait, drawn from the inside with love and wry detachment, of his controversial nation in these brilliant poetic stories, compound of satire, sentiment, realism, romance, irony and inspired clowning.".
