Law and Sexuality: The Global Arena by Edited by Carl Stychin & Didi Herman (£28.00)Publisher: University of Minnesota Press — 2001Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0816638705]Condition: Very Good. Description: First in this, paperback, edition. First published by The Athlone Press in 2000 as Sexuality in the Legal Arena

From the cover: “What does your sexuality have to do with your status as subject, citizen, or spouse? In our global political economy, this question has moved out of the domestic closet and into the world of public policy, human rights, and cultural norms, and is increasingly mediated, negotiated, and legislated in the legal arena. Prominent scholars of law and sexuality on four continents cross disciplines and national boundaries to explore provocative legal and political issues raised by the cultural, social, and political organization of intimate life. Encompassing a broad spectrum of perspectives, from literary analysis and postcolonial studies to feminist, queer, and race theory, their critical, skeptical, and often pragmatic analysis maps the current state of the global intersections between law and sexuality and social change.

Contributors: Heather Brook, Richard Collier, Derek Dalton, Pierre de Vos, Jonathan Goldberg-Hiller, Patrick Hanafin, Emma Henderson, Adrian Howe, Rebecca Johnson, Thomas Kuttner, Derek McGhee, Leslie J. Moran, Wayne Morgan, Oliver Phillips, Jennifer Spruill, and Claire Young.”

The Explorers Guild Volume One: A Passage to Shambhala by Jon Baird, with Kevin Costner & Stephen Meyer (£28.00)Publisher: New York: Atria Books — 2015Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 9781471153723]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Plates; Black & White Drawings; Maps to the endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “Developed by Academy Award winner Kevin Costner, this is a magnificently produced, illustrative adventure story about a clandestine society of rogue voyagers on a mission to discover the mysteries that lie beyond the boundaries of the known world. Behind the staid public rooms of an old world gentlemen’s club operates a more mysterious organization: The Explorers’ Guild, a clandestine group of adventurers who bravely journey to those places in which light gives way to shadow and reason is usurped by myth. The secrets they seek are hidden in mountain ranges and lost in deserts, buried in the ocean floor and lodged deep in polar ice.

The aim of The Explorers’ Guild: to discover the mysteries that lie beyond the boundaries of the known world. Set against the backdrop of World War I, with Western Civilization on the edge of calamity, the first instalment in The Explorers’ Guild series, A Passage to Shambhala, concerns the Guild’s quest to find the golden city of Buddhist myth. The search will take them from the Polar North to the Mongolian deserts, through the underground canals of Asia to deep inside the Himalayas, before the fabled city finally divulges its secrets and the globe-spanning journey plays out to its startling conclusion. The Explorers’ Guild is a rare publishing opportunity, powered by the creative passion of one of the world’s true storytelling masters, Kevin Costner.”

It is an invitation to think — to wonder, to question, to speculate, to reason, even to fantasize — in the eternal search for wisdom. In a word, synoptic philosophy is an attempt to weave interconnecting lines of illumination between all the disparate realms of human thought in the hope that, like a thousand dawnings, new insights will burst through.”Notes: Size: 10¼" x 8¼".

Christianity and the World Religions by Hans Kung (£24.00)Publisher: Collins — 1987Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 000217619X]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with the expected associated abrasion to the dust wrapper. Top edge of the text block slightly soiled. Description: From the cover: “There are 4. 9 billion people living on this earth, and of these, 1. 4 billion are nominally Christian — exactly one third of the world’s population. That compares with 723 million Muslims, 583 million Hindus, and 274 million Buddhists.

Whether I am a Christian or a non-Christian, what is my attitude towards these other religions? That question is becoming ever more urgent, since not only the geographical horizon of our religious world but its historical horizon as well have expanded enormously. In a world so closely knit together, the old religious boundaries are becoming increasingly blurred, and we find large numbers of people with different faiths even in our own country, in our home town, in our factories and schools, often in our street. What indeed is my attitude towards these other religions?

Conversation between Christianity and Islam, Christianity and Hinduism, and Christianity and Buddhism had not been going on in earnest until this century. This book is an attempt to draw up something like an interim balance sheet of the twentieth-century conversation, in order to stimulate further discussion, and indeed to make us consider afresh what “religion” really is..”

With absorbing profiles of the key personalities and the planes they flew, witness how flight became a reality. Follow the swift advances in aviation technology that took place with the onset of war, as supremacy in the skies became a crucial factor. Eyewitness accounts and striking images bring air reconnaissance, aerial bombings and spectacular “dogfights” to life.

TRAILBLAZERS

Adventurous fliers like Lindbergh and Earhart pushed the boundaries even further during the “golden age” of flight in the 1920s and ‘30s. Discover how these trailblazers conquered transatlantic routes and paved the way for new luxury passenger jets.

TRENDSETTERS

Read thrilling accounts of events such as the Hindenburg disaster and the U-2 spy plane crisis, or find out what life was like aboard the Mir space station. Remarkable images of flying boats, airships and space rockets combine with fascinating and detailed profiles of over 300 of the world’s greatest planes to make this an outstanding encyclopaedic record of aviation history. The book concludes with a glimpse into the future of flight: from anti-terrorist strategies to light aircraft, pilotless planes and space vacations.”

The Wirral by Alan Brack (£20.50)Publisher: Phillimore & Co. — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0850336791]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the head of the spine. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Reprint with amendments. [First Edition: 1980] Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the flap: “The Wirral was already an old-established administrative unit at the time of Domesday Book. This book is concerned with all those aspects of the Wirral, whether of history, architecture or landscape, that give the peninsula its individuality. Well known as a writer on the locality, Alan Brack starts with the immense advantage of having lived there nearly all his life. His book is at once scholarly, readable and entertaining. He has studiously avoided the highly romanticised view which has persisted in other accounts of the area and his opening chapter, ‘A Place Apart’, sets the tone for the whole book. There are sections on Birkenhead and Wallasey and on Bebington and Bromborough. An authoritative account of the establishment of Ellesmere Port is followed by a chapter on the Urbanised Districts of Hoylake, Neston and Heswall, on the Urbanised, Unexpected and Purpose-built villages, on the open spaces and on crossing the Mersey. The description of Port Sunlight, with its vignette of Lord Leverhulme, is especially well-informed. Human interest relieves a generally topographical approach through the appearance in the local context of the many notable men and women who have been associated with the Wirral.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

A History of Britain: At the Edge of the World? 3000BC - AD1603 by Simon Schama (£16.00)Publisher: British Broadcasting Corporation [B.B.C./BBC] — 2000Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0563384972]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped. Description: A Later Printing. Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “Change — sometimes gentle and subtle, sometimes shocking and violent — is the dynamic of Schama’s unapologetically personal and grippingly written history, especially the changes that wash over custom and habit, transforming our loyalties. At the heart of his history lie questions of compelling importance for Britain’s future as well as its past: What makes or breaks a nation? To whom do we give our allegiance and why? And where do the boundaries of our community lie — in our hearth and home, our village or city, tribe or faith? What is Britain — one country or many, one culture or several? Has British history unfolded ‘at the edge of the world’ or right at the heart of it?

All these themes are delivered to the reader in the stories which Schama loves to tell, and in a form that is at once traditional and excitingly fresh. The great and the wicked are here — Becket and Thomas Cromwell, Robert the Bruce and Anne Boleyn — but so are countless more ordinary lives: an Irish monk waiting for the plague to kill him in his cell at Kilkenny; a small boy running through the streets of London to catch a glimpse of Elizabeth I. They are all caught on the rich and teeming canvas on which Schama paints his brilliant portrait of the life of the British people: ‘for in the end, history, especially British history with its succession of thrilling illuminations, should be, as all her most accomplished narrators have promised, not just instruction but pleasure’..”

DJ slightly ruffled at the edges.Description: Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “In the early sections of the book he discusses ways in which you can find out more about your village, or better understand villages that you visit — their names, their layout, with church, green, pond, mill or lockup, the varied houses of their inhabitants. He then turns to the villagers themselves, and shows that their history is in large part the tale of a gritty determination to survive in the face of hardship and oppression, a struggle lightened by companionship and songs and its setting in one of the most beautiful countrysides in the world. He devotes a special chapter to ‘crisis and the village’, from the Black Death to the Great War. Before going on to look at life in Victorian and Edwardian times, and finally to examine the village’s present and future in the light of its past. Commuters have changed the village, but for the first time in a thousand years it has a population which is ready and able to stand up for itself.”Notes: Size: 10¼" x 7¾".

The U.S.S.R. and the Middle East by Edited by Michael Confino & Shimon Shamir (£13.50)Publisher: Israel Universities Press — 1973Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0706512677]Condition: Very Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Edges of the dust wrapper frayed with a closed tear to the head of the upper panel, a little loss at the top corner of the lower, heavily faded at the spine and tanned on the reverse. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Light tanning to the blanks and pastedowns. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise.Description: From the cover: “What used to be called, in the mid-fifties, the Soviet penetration into the Middle East has become, by the early seventies, a strong presence in the region and a deep involvement in its affairs. Yet the boundaries of the extension of Soviet influence in this area have not yet crystallized and the Soviet posture still fluctuates between new gains and sudden setbacks.

An international conference, convened at Tel Aviv University in December 1971, attempted to evaluate the extent of the Soviet deployment in the Middle East, the interests which motivate it, the dilemmas it is facing, and its impact on local countries. This volume presents most of the papers read at that conference, as revised in the light of the conference’s deliberations and later developments.

The historians and social scientists who contributed to this volume are well known authorities on the Soviet Union and/or the Middle East: Dr A. S. Becker (RAND), Prof. L Binder (Chicago), Dr. A. Cohen (Hebrew University), Prof. A. Dallin (Stanford), Prof. U. Dann (Tel Aviv), Dr. O. Eran (Tel Aviv), Prof. J. C. Hurewitz (Columbia), Prof. E. Kedourie (LSE), Prof. R. Kolkowicz (UCLA), Prof. W. Z. Laqueur (London & Tel Aviv), Dr. A. Levy (Tel Aviv), Prof. H. Morgenthau (Chicago), Dr. G. Ofer (Hebrew University), Dr. B. C. Pinchuk (Tel Aviv), Prof. R. Pipes (Harvard), Mr. Y. Ro’i (Tel Aviv), Dr. H. Shaked (Tel Aviv), Prof. S. Shamir (Tel Aviv), Miss E. Souery (Tel Aviv), Prof. P. J. Vatikiotis (London) and Dr. G. Warburg (Haifa). Israeli strategic and political thought is reflected in a paper written by Deputy Prime Minister Yigal Allon.”

Leans slightly.Description: From the cover: “The Greater German Reich has finally been nuked to a standstill, Chinese Maoists still revolt against Lizard rule, Japan has atomic weapons, the Soviets are playing devious games under President Molotov, and the US has gained a foothold in space. There’s a soap-operatic tangle of plot strands, with established characters both human and alien meeting in ever-changing combinations, much blackmail and smuggling of ginger (to Lizards, a powerfully addictive drug), and flashes of everyday job-hunting, friendship and romance. Big questions loom: which country attacked the colony ships and must pay heavily for it? Where is the one nuclear weapon captured by Jews 20 years ago? Will the Lizards cut their losses by reducing Earth to radioactive wasteland? And just what is the US doing so secretly in the asteroid belt? Little jokes appear amid the suspense — for example, the Warren Commission has nothing to do with Kennedy’s assassination but is a Lizard team investigating the shocking actions of this world’s US President Warren”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Text complete, clean and tight but now somewhat age-tanned and a touch musty.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Like Kathryn Kuhlman’s earlier accounts of her ministry this book is composed of the first-person accounts of men and women whose lives were changed during Miss Kuhlman’s Miracle Services. Patients with terminal cancer, children with leukaemia and birth defects; victims of arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and spinal disintegration — these are only a few of the countless thousands who have been touched by God’s healing power in the midst of a crowded auditorium. Miss Kuhlman calls out their locations and bids them “Stand and accept your healing”. And before the eyes of friends and relatives, individuals arise from wheel-chairs and stretchers, born anew in both mind and body. Incredible? And yet, this book presents the stories of twenty people who were considered hopeless by medical science and who later returned, cured, to amaze their own doctors — and live new, utterly joyful lives, transformed by their new-found faith.”Notes: Size: 8½" x 5½".

Anam Cara: Spiritual Wisdom from the Celtic World by John O'Donohue (£10.50)Publisher: Bantam — 1999Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0553505920]Condition: Very Good+.Description: Later printing. From the cover: “When St Patrick came to Ireland in the fifth century AD, he encountered the Celtic people and a flourishing spiritual tradition that had already existed for thousands of years. He discovered that where the Christians worshipped one God, the Celts had many and found divinity all around them: in the rivers, hills, sea and sky. The ancient Celtic reverence for the spirit in all things survives today — a vibrant legacy of mystical wisdom that is unique in the Western world. Now, in this exquisite book, Irish poet and scholar John O’Donohue shares with us the secrets of this ancient world. Using authentic Irish prayers and blessings, he reveals the treasures that lie hidden within your own soul and the ‘secret divinity’ in your relationships. As he traces the cycles of life and nature, he draws from the holy waters of Ireland’s spiritual heritage to lead you to a place where your heart can be healed and nourished. It is a place where you will discover your own Anam Cara, your true ‘soul friend’.”Notes: Size: B Format (7¾" x 5¼"). 281 pages.

Country Life Book of Antique Maps: An Introduction to the History of Maps and How to Appreciate Them by Jonathan Potter (£10.50)Publisher: Mappamundi — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0600556263]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with the expected associated abrasion to the dust wrapper. Description: Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “It is possible that long before Man could communicate through the written word, he was making primitive maps from clay or bits of bark, probably to indicate nothing more than good places to hunt. As the sea became important for food and transport so charts were produced on shells and bones to indicate sheltered coves, fishing grounds, hidden rocks or safe routes. But it was not until the 16th century that maps evolved into the intricate documents we know today.

The beginning of the 1500s heralded the age when cartographers not only recorded geographical boundaries, but introduced a style which, with their historical content, made maps beautiful and irresistible works of art. It is from this time to the 1850s that this book concerns itself — the age of the mapmaker as scientist and artist.

Country Life Book of Antique Maps is a thorough introduction to the history of antique maps and how to collect and enjoy them, written by one of the world’s leading antique map dealers..”

Kingdom of the Ice Bear: A Portrait of the Arctic by Hugh Miles & Mike Salisbury (£10.50)Publisher: British Broadcasting Corporation [B.B.C./BBC] — 1986Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0563203390]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with the expected associated chafing to the dust wrapper. Price Clipped.Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Black & White Drawings; Maps; From the cover: “The Arctic is the largest untouched wilderness left on earth, a vast expanse of frozen land and sea which crowns the northern boundaries of Alaska, Canada, Greenland, Scandinavia and the Soviet Union. Often characterised as a lifeless wasteland of ice and snow, it is in fact a unique area of rare and subtle beauty, teeming with an extraordinary array of wildlife.

Award-winning wildlife cameraman Hugh Miles and producer Mike Salisbury of the BBC Natural History Unit give a lively and often amusing personal account of their experiences during three years filming in the Arctic. They also describe the ecology of the region and the sequence of seasonal events, showing how flora, fauna and man can survive the intense cold, and how each in turn exploits the richness of land and sea during the brief period of Arctic summer. Mammals and birds must raise their young and plants must flower and set seed in just three months before winter returns. Animals not adapted to withstand such seasonal extremes have to hurry southwards, leaving only those like the polar bear, king of the frozen north, to wander his now silent kingdom.

The vital importance of man’s relationship with the Arctic is also explored. Using traditional skills, the native Eskimos have been able to live in harmony with their difficult surroundings for centuries. Yet modern hunting methods, oil and mineral exploration and even tourism now threaten the area’s precarious ecological balance.

Kingdom of the Ice Bear is lavishly illustrated with superb full-colour photographs, many taken by the authors, which not only capture the beauties and realities of this harsh but spectacular area of the northernmost part of our globe, but provide a valuable record of this major television series..”

The Boundaryless Organization: Breaking the Chains of Organizational Structure by Ron Ashkenas, Dave Ulrich, Todd Jick & Steve Kerr (£10.50)Publisher: Jossey-Bass — 1995Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 078790113X]Condition: Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the bottom corners of the boards with the expected associated abrasion to the dust wrapper. Top edge of the text block tanned. Scattered researcher's highlighting throughout. Description: 2nd printing. [First Published: Same Year] From the cover: "Despite the pressing need for businesses to create new organizational forms - virtual organizations, horizontal organizations, team-based structures, and others - there is scarce information describing the strategies and actions required to make them work. In The Boundaryless Organization, a top team of management experts draws on their extensive experience with Fortune 500 companies and others to show how to move from today's theories to the actions required for tomorrow's success.

Using extensive case studies of such corporate giants as General Electric, Morgan Bank, and SmithKline Beecham, the authors demonstrate how to bust boundaries and enjoy stellar results by encouraging the flow of ideas, resources, and talents in and out of the organization, up and down the hierarchy, and across geographic boundaries. By following the path forged by these corporate leaders, the authors show how any organization can:

• Break through slow-moving bureaucracies
• Mobilize multiple constituencies for change
• Accomplish short-term goals while planning for long-term success
• Grapple with the problems of becoming a global company.

The Boundaryless Organization also includes important diagnostic tools to help individuals assess their own levels of boundaryless leadership and identify priorities for change, while measuring progress in breaking through each of the four boundaries that block success - vertical, horizontal, external, and geographic.

The Sexual Century: How Private Passion Became a Public Obsession by Tom Hickman (£10.50)Publisher: Carlton — 1999Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1858685079]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Small area of laminate lifting at the head of the upper panel.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “As the twentieth century draws to a close, the most private and intimate of acts has become a public obsession: we are bombarded with sexual imagery in adverts, movies, websites, magazines and music. Sex is everywhere. However, at the beginning of the century our sex lives would have been very different. Sexual ignorance was commonplace and a more honest sexuality was only just beginning to emerge after the strictures and hypocrisy of the Victorian era.

The Sexual Century explores the multitude of factors that have transformed our sexual experiences. Cinema has constantly tested the boundaries of taste, decency and censorship, opening up sexual attitudes and allowing people to witness on screen the passions and desires that they were unable to express in public. War also brought great change to sexual experiences; women found fleeting sexual freedom while men invaded the bedrooms of other nations. And then there were the 1960s: a decade that embodied the peak of the century’s sexual revolution: the pill negated the threat of unwanted pregnancies, open marriages abounded, homosexuals came out of the closet and throughout this and the following decade, many went on an orgy of sexual exploration. However, the advent of AIDS heralded yet another shift in attitudes, with the emphasis on protection and survival as much as on freedom of choice.

Tom Hickman’s incisive, informative and entertaining text takes the reader on a sexual journey through the twentieth century and provides us with a fascinating history of a subject that is essential to all our lives.”

All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten: Uncommon Thoughts on Common Things by Robert Fulghum (£9.50)Publisher: Grafton — 1989Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0246135514]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the spine ends and corners with commensurate ruffling to the dustwrapper. Gently faded at the spine. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “This is one of the rare few destined to become a modern classic. Bound to raise the spirits and warm the heart, this collection of uncommon thoughts on common things has taken on a life of its own. It began with Robert Fulghum’s attempt to write a simple statement of belief. In his capacity as a Unitarian minister, he shared his credo with his congregation. Then he read it out at a primary school celebration, and a Senator who heard it took it back to Washington, where it was read into the Congressional Record. It was printed in the Kansas City Times and quoted in Reader’s Digest, read over the radio and produced as a poster by a phone company. Enthusiasm kept on snowballing. When Robert Fulghum collected his favourite observations, written over the years, into All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, it shot straight to the top of the US bestseller lists. Robert Fulghum writes with wit and insight about small lives with big meanings. His writing has a clarity and power that touch virtually everyone who reads his work. This wonderful book will make its readers pause to reflect on their own lives, and will leave them wiser, gentler — and feeling good.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5½".

One possible lifeline is the Litchen Probe that promises to enable the transportation of a present-day soul into the body of an ancestor.

As the project nears completion, Dr Gemma Western decides to take the law into her own hands. She slips unnoticed into the laboratory early in the morning and activates the Probe using herself as the subject.

By setting the co-ordinates so that a minute of laboratory time equals a year in the past, she plans to rewrite her own history and cause herself to have been born rich and powerful, and then return before anyone can discover what she’s done.

A slight miscalculation places her in the wrong body at the wrong time, triggering an unimaginable chain of events.

Essentially, a sci-fi thriller, Dilemma is an engrossing adventure story that will have wide appeal.”

Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper.Description: From the cover: “Diving for Pearls tells the converging stories of a stormy and passionate marriage between an upper-class young woman and a notorious criminal — an ‘impossible’ marriage across class boundaries — and of an avenger, a man who will stop at nothing to destroy them. Cecily Rose, escaping the dominating influence of her father, Sir Stephen, decides to ‘do good’. She becomes a prison visitor and, against all advice, falls in love with Frank Blake, a South Londoner serving a prison sentence for robbery. For three years they conduct a courtship in prison visiting rooms. The day he is released, they marry, and Cecily finds herself thrown into the shifting, dangerous demi-monde of Frank’s ‘connections’. Meanwhile in Ireland an undercover Intelligence Officer, Peter Carter, is betrayed one night in West Belfast and shot. He is grievously injured. In the long months of his recovery — written by Brenton as a terrifying journey through a purgatory of distorted memories and desires — Peter sets out on a fanatical quest to discover his betrayer. Through shadowy dealings between British Intelligence in Ireland and the criminal fraternity in London, he is led finally to Frank.”Notes: Jacket designed by Elizabeth Wood. Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

Genealogy for Beginners by Arthur J. Willis (£9.50)Publisher: Phillimore — 1976Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0900592311]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper, heavier so at the tips. Price Clipped. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: 3rd, revised, edition. [First Edition: Ernest Benn, 1955] From the cover: “THIS IS A NEW EDITION OF A CLASSIC. Many books have been written for the would-be genealogist, but none has equalled the success of Mr. Willis’s Genealogy for Beginners. Since it was first published, this readable little guide has introduced more ancestry-tracers to the subject than any other. Now completely up-dated, revised and re-set, the book in your hand is the best buy for the beginner of today.

Tracing your own family history and gradually constructing your own, unique, pedigree is an absorbing hobby, a never-ending personal detective investigation. This book tells you exactly how to set about it; how to collect information from living relatives; how to make full use of all the clues and traditions you already have; how and where to find written records; how, with luck, to build up a complete pedigree back to the late Middle Ages.

The growth in interest in genealogy has been phenomenal in recent years; the Society of Genealogists of London having doubled its membership in a decade and some twenty vigorous regional societies having sprung up throughout Britain, mainly in the mid-seventies. Mr. Willis can claim credit for much of that growth through the influence of this book. In addition, he has made a big contribution to the wealth of published source material available to searchers for British records. The publishers will gladly supply details of his other books on the subject — and those of many other authors — and will be pleased to put new genealogists in touch with the secretaries of any of the societies referred to above.

Ancestry-tracing is fun; it brings history to life and it gives a greater sense of personal identity. Our ancestors cease to be a vague concept and become real people, part of each of them living still, in us, their descendants. They may have been ordinary, may have been blue-blooded or famous, but whatever they were the search itself is rewarding and the satisfaction of knowing is permanent and a proper source of pride.”

This gives rise to many types of soil and consequent variety of scenery, flora, fauna and natural resources, all of which have influenced the county’s history and its present state. This book attempts to give a picture that will depict that story, a balanced account of Cotswold, Vale and Forest.

The author was born and bred in Gloucestershire and has spent many years exploring it, writing, lecturing and broadcasting about it and its history, geology, lore and legend. The early chapters describe shortly, but clearly, the geological and historical events that have moulded the county and produced the Gloucestershire of today, which is described in the main part of the book; the possible future of the county is considered in a new appendix.”

Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: From the cover: “John Waters is a successful petroleum geologist with the perfect family. Then one day his world is turned inside out by a single word spoken from the lips of a beautiful stranger. That word, "Soon…", sends him hurtling back in time, to a past he has never quite forgotten — the most passionate affair of his life. Mallory Candler was the quintessential Southern Belle. But her captivating beauty and intelligence hid a dark side only John Waters was allowed to see. When her seething passion threatened to destroy them both, he ended their affair and moved on, choosing stability and sanity over ecstasy. Mallory too married and had children, but she never stopped trying to reconcile with Waters until the day she was found raped and murdered on a New Orleans pier. Now, ten years after her death, a woman named Eve Sumner appears, bearing not just Mallory’s smile, but also secrets only Mallory herself could know. Convinced by his best friend that he imagined the first incident, Waters attends a party and crosses paths with Eve Sumner again. In a crowded room with Waters’ wife nearby, Eve squeezes his wrist and whispers: "You’re not imagining anything, John. It’s me. Call me." Waters’ blood runs cold. How does Eve Sumner know so much about Mallory Candler? Was their first meeting cleverly orchestrated or simply fate? Is she using knowledge of Waters’ guilt and regret to exploit him? Or has Mallory’s unique passion somehow survived beyond what Waters believed was her death? A swarm of secrets, lies and murder is about to explode in a novel where the boundaries between passion, obsession and love are stretched beyond their limits.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".
