A history of Natal by Edgar Harry Brookes( Book )

17 editions published between 1965 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A History of Natal has established a place for itself as a standard work of reference in libraries, schools and homes. Now, in paperback for the first time, it becomes available to yet another generation of readers. Using a wide range of sources, the authors set out to tell the story of the people - African, European and Asian - who in the period from the early nineteenth century to 1910 laid the foundations of present-day Natal. Economic and social as well as political factors are considered, and three supplementary chapters take the story up to 1961. An important feature of the original edition was the comprehensive annotated bibliography. In this new edition a supplementary list of some 300 works published between 1965 and 1986 has been added

The James Stuart archive of recorded oral evidence relating to the history of the Zulu and neighbouring peoples by James Stuart( Book )

7 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Stuart was one of the most remarkable Natalians of his day. Though there was nothing outwardly spectacular about his career as a colonial official, in 25 years of single-minded labour he built up what is now regarded as the most valuable collection of African oral traditions in existence in southern Africa. As a magistrate in some of the remotest corners of the Natal colony in the 1890s and early 1900s. Stuart sought out old people who remembered the times of Dingane and Mpande, and whose fathers and mothers had been ruled by Shaka. Interviewing them in fluent Zulu, he painstakingly filled hundreds of notebooks with their reminiscences and the traditions which older generations had handed down to them. The statements which Stuart recorded from nearly 200 informants are now housed, together with his own writings on Zulu customs, language, and praise-poetry, in the Killie Campbell Africana Library in Durban. Since 1971 the department of Historical and Political Studies at the University of Natal, Pietermaritzburg, has been engaged in a project which aims to publish all the historical evidence collected by Stuart

in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the third of The James Stuart Archive. In it, the editors present a further twenty-eight documents compiled from material in the James Stuart Collection of the Killie Campbell Africana Library in Durban. James Stuart was an official in the Natal colonial civil service in the 1890s and early years of the present century. In meticulously recorded interviews with hundreds of informants, the great majority of them Africans, he assembled a vast and unique collection of notes on the traditions and customs of the Zulu and neighbouring peoples. The documents published in the successive volumes of The James Stuart Archive represent edited, annotated and translated renderings of Stuart's notes and transcriptions. The testimony which he assembled piecemeal has been arranged by the editors under the names of the informants from whom it was obtained, and is being published in alphabetical name-order. The present volume carries the sequence from Mbokodo to Mpatshana, and brings to ninety-nine the number of informants whose statements have so far been published in the series
