LETTERS FROM LADYSMITH

Subtitle: Eyewitness Accounts from the South African War Editor: Edward Spiers Publisher: Jonathan Ball () ISBN-10: ISBN-13: Condition: Very Good Binding: Softcover Pages: 192 Dimensions: 23.4 x 15.8 x 1.8 cm +++ Edited by Edward Spiers +++ Edward Spiers, a leading authority on the Victorian British army, presents a selection of letters from the siege of Ladysmith (). These 250 letters, which were published in different British newspapers, provide crucial insights into contemporary perceptions of the battles that preceded the siege, the onset of the siege itself, and the desperate and bloody attempts to relieve the town.  The letters vividly reflect the feelings of junior officers and other ranks as they struggled to cope with the demands of modern warfare. Their eyewitness testimonies provide firsthand commentary upon the events in Natal that shattered the prewar confidence in Britain.   A passion for books and a passion for collecting fine editions was the recipe that created the successful group of bookshops in Johannesburg called Bookdealers. The group started thirty years ago with one store in the quirky suburb of Yeoville and has grown through the years to a total of five shops, plus our online sales. Bookdealers is well-known for its collectable and used books. We also have a large variety of remaindered books sourced from around the world.  If you collect from one of our five branches there is no delivery charge. We also offer postal delivery (when available) and courier delivery, subject to a quote.

LETTERS TO DENISE BY ERICH SEGAL. UNCOVERED AFTER 50 YEARS

A series of 6 beautifully written letters (13 pages/sides of writing) to a young Lady in Cape Town in through by Harvard student and class poet Erich Segal.  Although formally written they are funny and romantic. Erich went on to visit Denise in Cape Town in July . The Letters are mostly typed on an oddball wonky typewriter with corrections and notes by hand but are easy to read (clear)  There is a Greek paragraph by hand. One letter is entirely by hand. All the letters are signed. Reference is made to A.B. Ackerman, a friend, who bequeathed some Erich Segal memorabilia to the Harvard University Archives. Erich Segal went on to have a world wide no.1  hit with his book  " Love Story "  The asking price for the letters is not negotiable.  Because they are unique it is impossible to determine their value by comparison to similar material. The few signed notes by Erich Segal available on the open market have no real story to tell unlike "Letters to Denise" which evoke a sense of nostalgia and take the reader through a relationship between two young people.  After reading the letters any serious collector would  know that they are very special.

A LETTER FROM PARIS | ERIC MIYENI

Subtitle: Essays and Photographs Author: Eric Miyeni Photographer: Eric Miyeni With Author's Inscription Publisher: Pan Macmillan () Edition: First Edition ISBN-10: ISBN-13: Condition: Very Good - Laminate lifting from bottom back cover and from a small portion of the front cover edge, but otherwise in very good condition. Binding: Softcover Pages: 163 Dimensions: 23 x 18.7 x 0.9 cm +++ by Eric Miyeni +++ In October Eric Miyeni, accompanied by his trusty pen and camera, spent two weeks in Paris keenly observing the city's architecture, its history, its people and its culture. The result is an accomplished collection of essays and black and white photographs that are quirky, often poignant, quite astute, really funny and truly different in their take on the subject matter. For once the tables are turned in a positive way: an African is observing instead of being observed, and passing comment instead of being commented on.   A passion for books and a passion for collecting fine editions was the recipe that created the successful group of bookshops in Johannesburg called Bookdealers. The group started thirty years ago with one store in the quirky suburb of Yeoville and has grown through the years to a total of five shops, plus our online sales.
