  • First edition of Sol Plaatje's Native Life In South Africa, Before and Since the European War and The Boer Rebellion; inscribed by him to his first biographer Modiri S. Molema

    PLAATJE, Solomon Tshekisho [Sol].

    Native Life In South Africa, Before and Since the European War and The Boer Rebellion.

    London: P. S. King & Son, Ltd, 1916.

    First edition of “one of the most remarkable books on Africa by one of the continent’s most remarkable writers” (Neil Parsons). Octavo, original cloth, double frontispiece of the author and Mrs. S. T. Plaatje. Association copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper in the year of publication, “Mr. Modiri S. Molema, With the author’s compliments & pleasant recollections of happy days in the Siege of Mafeking Easter 1916.” The recipient, Modiri S. Molema, was the son of Chief Silas Molema, a personal friend of Plaatje’s who financed The Bechuana Gazette which Plaatje edited between 1902 and 1905. Both Silas and Plaatje were on the side of the British during the Siege of Mafeking, where Plaatje acted as both court interpreter and clerk to the Mafeking administrator of Native affairs. The Molema Family played an important role in South African history. Molema Tawana (c. 1822 – January 1882) was the Barolong Chief and founded the town of Mafeking, which was originally called Molema’s Town. His heir and oldest son, Silas Thelesho Molema was the next chief of the Barolong and friend and benefactor of Sol. Plaatje. It was to Silas’s son, Seetsele Modiri Molema (1891 – 1965), also known as Silas Modiri Molema after his father, that Plaatje gave and inscribed this book, sharing as he says “happy days in the Siege of Mafeking”. Modiri would only have been a boy of about 8 at the time of the Siege, and later went on to study medicine and the University of Glasgow. Before returning to South Africa, Molema wrote an acclaimed history book entitled The Bantu, Past and Present; an Ethnographical & Historical Study of the Native Races of South Africa. Though the book was about Black South Africans in general, the primary focus was the history of the Batswana. On his return to South Africa, he commenced his practice in Mafikeng where he distinguished himself as a medical practitioner of exceptional ability with a large practice serving both White and Black South Africans at Mafikeng and distant towns like Johannesburg. He published several pamphlets and books including the first biography of Sol Plaatje: Lover of His People: Sol Plaatje, originally written in his mother-tongue, Setswana, and the only book-length biography written by someone who actually knew him. The manuscript had long been housed in the Wits Historical Papers and was accessible only to scholars. In the biography, Molema references the present volume and quotes the inscription within it. In the 1940s, Dr. Molema was involved in the African National Congress (ANC) and he became its National Secretary in December 1949. He also served on the African Advisory Council, Joint Advisory Council, and the Constitutional Committee that set the Bechuanaland Protectorate on its road to independence as a Republic of Botswana. In very good condition. The most significant association copy extant.

  • “Governments don't produce economic growth people do”: First Edition of the 40th President of the United States Autobiography An American Life; Signed by Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev

    REAGAN, Ronald [Mikhail Gorbachev].

    An American Life.

    New York: Simon & Schuster, 1990.

    First edition of the 40th President of the United States’ memoir. Octavo, original half cloth, illustrated. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the half-title page, “To Jim and Shirley Earp- With Best Wishes Ronald Reagan June 7- ’91” and additionally signed by Mikhail Gorbachev, Russian counterpart to Reagan. “When it came to communism, socialism and other systems that denied people their basic human rights, President Reagan was tough as nails. A devoted anti-communist, he was not afraid to say what needed to be said or do what needed to be done to bring freedom to people who were living under repressive regimes. In that regard, of all the foreign policy achievements of the Reagan Presidency, none is more important, or had more lasting impact on the world, than the fundamental change in U.S.-Soviet relations. It was not due to luck or accident. Speaking of U.S.-Soviet relations and his steadfast determination to reduce arms, President Reagan would often say: “We don’t mistrust each other because we’re armed; we’re armed because we mistrust each other.” He believed that if the mistrust was eliminated, then so, too, could the dangerous, destabilizing weapons. President Reagan was confident that if he could just get his Soviet counterpart in a room and tell him face-to-face that America had no hostile intent, the mistrust would begin to evaporate. Instinctively he knew that could not be accomplished through the traditional diplomacy of a bureaucratic State Department. So, to the horror of some long-time career government employees, he did what no President had ever done. While recovering from the assassination attempt in 1981, he hand wrote a letter to Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev in reply to Brezhnev’s rather belligerent letter sent less than six weeks after President Reagan’s assumption of office. In his reply, President Reagan sought to find common ground and to establish a better tone to relations between the White House and the Kremlin. But as things turned out, the President would have to be patient. Brezhnev died in November 1982, and was replaced by Yuri Andropov. Less than 2 years later, Andropov died, and was succeeded by Constantin Chernenko. Incredibly, Chernenko died just 13 months later. To replace him, the Soviet high command chose a younger leader, Mikhail Gorbachev. It was Gorbachev with whom President Reagan would finally have that long-sought opportunity to begin to form a new relationship, one that would lead to a lessening of tensions between Washington and Moscow, and eventually to meaningful arms reduction. The first of their five meetings was on “neutral turf.” It took place in Geneva, Switzerland in November 1985. In a small plain boat house just down a stone path from Fleur D’Eau, the grand chateau where their formal sessions took place, President Reagan and General Secretary Gorbachev sat down in two comfortable chairs in front of a roaring fireplace, and with only interpreters present, began to forge a relationship that would not only improve U.S.-Soviet relations, but would turn out to be the beginning of the end of Soviet domination of Eastern Europe and ultimately, of the Soviet Union itself. Almost a year later, the two leaders got together again, this time in Reykjavik, Iceland. In a summit meeting not long in the making, they met at Hofdi House, a picturesque waterfront structure that was once the French consulate. There they came tantalizingly close to an agreement to eliminate all medium-range missiles based in Europe. But at the last minute, Gorbachev insisted that the United States abandon plans for a space-based missile defense system. Despite President Reagan’s offer to share the system’s technology with the Soviet Union so that both countries could be protected, Gorbachev dug in his heels and would not budge. The last thing Ronald Reagan would ever do would be to risk America’s safety for the sake of an agreement. The Summit was over. The anger and sadness was etched in President Reagan’s face as he emerged from Hofdi House. There was chatter that this was the end of the Reagan-Gorbachev relationship, and that there would be no more Summits. But President Reagan knew better. Partly because of his natural optimism, and partly because he believed that Gorbachev shared his desire to make the world safer, he was certain that eventually talks would resume. The President directed his team to keep the dialogue going and to see whether the progress made in Reykjavik could be the basis for successful negotiations going forward. That’s exactly what happened. It is a noteworthy measure of the confidence President Reagan had in the strength of his relationship with Gorbachev that just 8 months after Reykjavik, he boldly called on him to tear down the Berlin Wall. Just as he expected, in December, 1987, President and Mrs. Reagan welcomed the Gorbachevs to Washington for the third Summit. This time, the mood was upbeat and even celebratory. In a glittering East Room ceremony on December 8th, the two leaders signed the historic INF Treaty, eliminating all nuclear-armed ground-launched ballistic and cruise missiles with ranges between 500 and 5,000 kilometers. For the first time ever, the amount of nuclear arms was actually being reduced rather than merely limited. In the Spring of 1988 the Reagans traveled to Moscow for Summit #4. From a historical perspective, the highlight of that trip was the Kremlin ceremony at which President Reagan and General Secretary Gorbachev signed the now-ratified INF Treaty, but the Reagans also found time to enjoy some cultural treats including the Bolshoi Ballet and a visit to a monastery. The final Summit during the Reagan Presidency was in December, 1988. In what some called a “handing off” of the official relationship, President Reagan and President-elect (Vice President) George Bush traveled to New York to meet with Gorbachev. The unlikely pairing of a devoted anti-Communist advocate of capitalism with a dyed-in-the-wool Marxist resulted not only in the most significant arms reduction treaty in history, but in a permanent change in U.S.-Soviet relations. Neither country, nor the world, would ever be the same again” (Reagan Foundation). Fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket. Jacket design by Robert Anthony, Inc. Rare and desirable signed by Reagan and Gorbachev.
