The pages are somewhat tanned, if tight, and a little musty.Description: From the cover: “This book will spark off a new approach to display because it represents a fresh look at traditional methods. Without suggesting that art should be reduced to science, the author shows how an awareness of geometry can assist the display designer in many aspects of his work. Geometric reasoning may provide him with valuable discipline and a useful yardstick with which to measure, objectively, the natural flair of his own creation.”Notes: Foreword or introduction by Allan Plowman.

From the cover: “This is the third in the series of photographic records of the Somerset & Dorset Railway by Alan Hammond. As with his previous books, the emphasis is on images of railwaymen and women working on the line. Most of the photographs come from private collections and provide a fascinating insight into the day-today running of this much-loved line.

There are anecdotes, too. Eight personal memories enhance the story, with many a tale from Bath, Wincanton, Sturminster Newton, Blandford and Branksome, among others. There is the tragic story of how a ganger fell to his death from a railway trolley at Kilver Street Viaduct, and the more amusing episode when lumps of coal lobbed off an engine for the crossing-keeper at Lamyatt Road broke down his front door. There is a personal memory of idyllic childhood visits to the signalbox at Midford and a wartime account of coming under fire from a German plane at Highbridge. The stories and photographs together provide a heart-warming recollection of this lost world.

The foreword has been written by the railway entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson, a modern-day enthusiast and character to match those who worked on the old S&D.”

These pages carry the reader into the vanished forest-glades of Gillingham and Blackmore, and by Purbeck quarries of Cathedral marble.

Remote among the downs he finds old homes of the Binghams, the Trenchards, or Mohuns of Fleet. From Racedown Dorothy Wordsworth points him to Lewesdon and Pilsdon Pen. Across the Reddleman’s Heath is Lawrence of Arabia’s quiet grave. Under wild cliffs tales of piracy and shipwreck are told. Mrs. Gardiner’s attractive book shows us a Dorset that we cannot find in guide books and opens up all that lies beneath the beauty which the casual traveller can see as he passes through.”Notes: Size: 7½" x 5".

Freshwater Fishing by Trevor Housby (£9.50)Publisher: Galley Press — 1988Binding: Hardback [ISBN: 0861366301]Condition: Very Good. Edges of the text block lightly tanned otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: First in this edition. [First: Blandford Press, 1983] Illustrated with colour photographs & line drawings. From the cover: “This book is for the angler who wants results, who wants consistently to catch the fish of his or her choice and who wants to land specimen-sized fish not just occasionally but regularly. In other words, this is a guide to modern positive fishing. It wastes no time in describing ineffective methods however hallowed by tradition or in repeating outmoded fishermen’s lore. It teaches you how to get results by understanding your target fish and then applying the most up-to-date angling techniques to ensure its capture. Freshwater Fishing starts from first principles. From Barbel to Zander the main species of freshwater fish are given in alphabetical order. Each one has a chapter to itself, which starts with a brief description of the fish and, where useful, describes feeding habits, habitat, the bait and groundbait it most readily takes and the methods and equipment necessary to catch it. This book takes the chance out of fishing. It shows the angler how to apply thought as well as intuition to his fishing, with the result that whatever his level of skill, the angler will be able to catch decent-sized specimens of individual species to order.”Notes: Size: 8½" x 5½".
