The soul of the white ant by Eugène N Marais( Book )

104 editions published between 1922 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his fascinating investigations into the psyche of the ants, their strangely rich inherited memory of instinct, Marais makes challenging assertions about the group soul of the termite colony - the cause and result of the termites' ceaseless, automatic activity for their community. His extraordinary theory is that the termite colony is, in fact, a separate composite animal at a certain stage of its development

My friends the baboons by Eugène N Marais( Book )

33 editions published between 1936 and 1975 in 3 languages and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eugène Marais spent three years living in the South African wilderness in close daily contact with a troop of baboons. He later described this as the happiest, most content time of his troubled life. This period produced two works which are testament to his research and conclusions; they have very different histories. Firstly, there was a series of articles written in Afrikaans for the newspaper Die Vaderland. They were then published in book form under the title Burgers van die Berge, and were first published in an English translation in 1939 under the title My Friends the Baboons. These pieces were written in a popular vein suitable to a newspaper readership, and were not regarded seriously by Marais himself. They are a journal; a series of anecdotes & impressions. The Soul of the Ape, which Marais wrote in beautifully clear and precise English, was the more serious scientific document; however after his death in 1936, it could not be found. It was lost for 32 years, and was recovered in 1968, and published the following year. The excellent introduction by Robert Ardrey that is included in this volume was part of the 1969 and subsequent editions of The Soul of the Ape, and adds greatly to an appreciation of its importance. Together, these three texts give us as complete a picture as we will ever get of Marais' three year study of these complex relatives of humanity, and its implications for the study of consciousness

17 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die bekoring van Eugène Marais se eenvoudige dwaalstories is tydloos. Daar kan geen leser wees wat nie betower word deur die eerste woorde van Krom Joggom Konterdans se "lied van die reën" nie: Eers oor die bergtop loer sy skelm, En haar oë is skaam; En sy lag saggies. En van ver af wink sy met die een hand. Marais was een van die eerste Afrikaanse skrywyers wat inheemse verhale in die oorspronklike Boesman-Afrikaanse dialek neergepen het. Sy vier ""Dwaalstories" is oorspronklik in 1921 gepubliseer
