Fashion from Ancient Egypt to the Present Day by Mila Contini (£20.00)Publisher: Paul Hamlyn — 1967Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with two short, closed and tape reinforced, tears to the head and tail of the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The history of fashion is the history of life. For fashion is far more than the wearing of clothes; the primitive caveman with his blue paint, the Cretan ladies who left their bosoms bare, were following fashion. The hair styles on Roman statues, the social life of the Renaissance courts, even the slim-hipped, boyish figures of twentieth-century women, are largely the result of fashion.

Since earliest times a person’s clothes have been able to reflect his status, taste, profession, and the history and climate of the country he inhabits. So much is the character of man expressed in his clothes that a book such as this, which shows changing fashions from the earliest to the most recent times, is a history book of a peculiarly fascinating kind.

Nearly 550 illustrations, all but a few in colour, trace the history of clothes since the dawn of civilisation in Egypt. There is no guesswork — the eras are illustrated from art contemporary with the period; drawings, bas-relief carvings, statues, ancient manuscripts, great paintings of the Renaissance and Baroque periods, engravings, and clothes and accessories now preserved in museums, all can be found in this absorbing book..”

The Complete Fashion Sourcebook: 2,000 Illustrations Charting 20th-Century Fashion by John Peacock (£16.00)Publisher: Thames & Hudson — 2005Binding: Hardback [ISBN: 0500512760]Condition: Very Good. Small ding to the spine at the join with the upper board. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Duotone Drawings; Black & White Drawings;

From the cover: “This collection of drawings shows the radical, and often exhilarating, changes in fashion styles throughout the modem period. From the emancipated 1920s to the status-conscious 1980s, fashions have modified in line with changing times and mores, affected by social conventions, shifts in economic prosperity and advances in techniques of mechanization. Men’s fashion has moved more slowly than women’s, and is often concerned with nuances of style, but the changes perceptible in women’s fashion have been astonishingly wide-ranging.

This Sourcebook is divided into seven parts, each representing a decade. Each decade contains sections on Day Wear, Evening Wear, Sports and Leisure Wear, Underwear and Negligee, Wedding Wear and Accessories, providing a , rounded insight into modern developments and trends.

Charts at the back of the book reveal at a glance the evolution of the fashionable silhouette throughout the decades. Brief biographies and histories of the most important international designers and couture houses are also included. Finally, a select bibliography is provided to assist those who may wish to take their studies further.”

Description: 2nd (revised) edition, 2nd printing, [First Published: 1983] Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs [90]; Diagrams [26];

From the cover: “Writing from a wealth of experience and a position of authority, Chris Cradock has produced a manual of techniques and hardware in clayshooting, comprehensive in scope and meticulous in detail. He has been involved with the sport for 60 years, and there are few aspects of its application both in Europe and the United States with which he is not familiar.

The book deals initially with modern shotguns and cartridges and the specifications of both for the various disciplines. There is then information on the try-gun, fitting and stock alterations. Buying a gun, suitable clothing and accessories are then discussed before the book covers the basics of the sport such as safety, stance and style. Shooting the various disciplines forms the basis of the next chapter. Much more general information is given in subsequent sections which deal with refereeing, shooting clubs, trap operation and control, coaching and maintenance. There is, finally, a chapter on the sport’s future.

In total, Chris Cradock has produced a work, both informative and readable, which will quickly establish itself as the reference manual for all those with an active interest in sport.”

Introducing Jewelry Making by John Crawford (£11.50)Publisher: B. T. Batsford — 1974Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0713424052]Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. DJ slightly ruffled at the edges. Price Clipped. Top edges of text block lightly spotted.Description: Illustrated with B&W photographs. This book shows that striking jewellery can be made with limited materials and tools at slight expense, and that the process is well suited to the craft activities of schools and colleges, just as it may be rewardingly pursued by creative amateurs. The author is concerned with basic materials and tools, and simple methods of working, and with the kind of jewellery which they can produce: a Celtic brooch, an etched ring, a wire bracelet, a soldered pendant, etc. As well as the traditional materials, this book shows that other materials such as seeds, wood, ivory, bone, shells and semi – precious stones-can also be used, particularly in classes for young people. The illustrations prove that jewellery produced by students and amateurs can be more personal, and very often more beautiful, than the costly commercial products.Notes: Size: 8" x 8". 111 pages.

[ISBN: 060057136X]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Description: Illustrated with colour photographs & drawings. From the cover: “Golf is one of the fastest growing and most popular participation sports in the world. The current building programme for new courses does nothing to counter the demand for facilities. This is combined with the increased popularity of golf on television, encouraging people new to the game to play the sport themselves.

The Complete Book of Golf is a comprehensive guide to all aspects of this great game, from choosing the right equipment to how and where to play. The book is split into three main sections: Equipment, Techniques, and The Courses.

In the first section, there is detailed analysis of what type of clubs to use (woods, irons and putters), how to choose them, and what accessories are needed, from golf bags and trolleys to shoes, gloves, rain gear and balls. In section two, the basics of golfing techniques are laid out to enable you learn all the elements of playing the game. The author goes into particular detail on the basic swing and the sources of power, building up from this to show the set-up routine, grips and stance. How to play the various clubs — drivers, fairway woods, long, middle and short irons and putters — before taking you through a variety of ‘special shots’ for the rough and bunkers.

The last section explains how best to play the many different types of course — links, parkland, woodland, heathland — and how to play the holes you find there — par-3s, par-4s and par-5s. There are examples of top courses around the world and some of the spectacular holes on them, like the 12th at Augusta, the 17th at St Andrews, the 16th at Cypress Point (probably the most photographed hole in the world) and the 5th on the West Course at Royal Melbourne. How the great professional golfers — men and women — play and the reasons for their success are outlined in a further section. To round the book off an appendix gives details of the basic rules, methods of handicapping, different types of games and golf etiquette. Illustrated with over 250 specially-commissioned full colour artworks and photographs, The Complete Book of Golf provides invaluable advice and information for golfers of every type, from avid beginner to dedicated club player. This is truly a definitive and comprehensive book for every enthusiast, whatever their level of skill..”

A valuable source of reference, A Guide to Collecting Silver is the first book of its kind, covering as it does the complete spectrum of items wrought in silver and silver plate, and including information on related subjects such as hallmarking, caring for silver, and how to recognise styles and methods of working.”Notes: Size: 9¾" x 7¾".

From the cover: “Everyone who enjoys sewing will welcome this book, whether their skills and inclination have led, up to now, to making clothes or to sewing home furnishings. This book, packed with information about professional techniques and finishes, provides a valuable hand to lead the reader into the world of advanced sewing. Here you will find not only all the necessary sewing groundwork but tips known only to the professional seamstress that will soon lead you from the homemade into the class of expert stitching and perfect results every time.

The author describes the wealth of fabrics available to the dressmaker and home-sewer, giving tips on dealing with the more luxurious ones such as silk and cashmere. She also gives advice on the best equipment to choose and discusses what to look for in a sewing machine and how to use an overlocker.

A range of useful and progressively advanced techniques are described with step-by-step illustrated instructions showing how to stitch a variety of plain, decorative and shaped seams, goblet, pinch and box pleats and a wealth of finishes and fastenings such as rouleau loops, fringing, tassels and cornelli work.

An enticing range of designs, including classic dressmaking, desirable accessories and original home furnishings, puts these techniques into practice. A classic jacket, stylish kimono, wrap-around skirt or soft drawstring trousers will update your wardrobe while practical carpet or saddle bags, scarves in silk or cashmere and a beautiful jewellery roll all provide inspiration for making accessories in an infinite variety of different fabrics. Bedlinen, cushions, a luxurious door curtain and a stunningly original pelmet will all inspire the home sewer.

With its illustrated step-by-step instructions, sound coverage of basic techniques and fabulous projects to make, this book will be an essential acquisition for all needleworkers.”
