The Buddhist Writings of Lafcadio Hearn by Edited by Kenneth Rexroth (£18.00)Publisher: Wildwood House — 1981Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0704504219]Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Gently faded at the spine with light reading creases. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: First in this edition. [First: Houghton Mifflin, 1977] From the cover: “Lafcadio Hearn was born on the Greek island of Leucadia in 1850. After a career in journalism in the United States, Hearn travelled to Japan in 1890 to write articles about Japanese life for Harper’s Magazine. He remained there for the rest of his life, taking a Japanese wife (by whom he had three sons and a daughter) and assuming Japanese citizenship in 1895. He died in 1904, and was buried after Buddhist ceremonies in Zoshigaya cemetery in northern Tokyo. This collection of his writings on Buddhism was taken from the bulk of his writings by Kenneth Rexroth. The organization of the selections reflects Hearn’s chronological progress from a rendering of the simple tales and stories illustrative of the common folk’s beliefs in Buddhism to the more abstract philosophic doctrines of the Mahayana Buddhist sects in Japan. Of the many writers who have commented upon Buddhism in Japan, none has stood the test of time so well as Lafcadio Hearn.”Notes: Size: C Format (8½" x 5¼").

The Pagan King by Edison Marshall (£18.00)Publisher: Frederick Muller — 1960Binding: Hardback First Edition. Condition: Good. Faded at the spine. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Pages lightly age-tanned, more heavily at the blanks. Description: From the cover: “The Pagan King of this stirring, imaginative novel by Edison Marshall is the most famous king in the lore of the Western world. Although his name is a household word, breathing romance and adventure of long ago, little evidence can be found that he ever really lived. The author believes that he did live, that he was born in what is now Wales, that he fought and conquered rival kings, became King of Britain, and made a mark on his times that will stand as long as songs are sung and tales are told.

Research into his era dismisses at once the vast cloak of myth that conceals what must have been his real character. There were no more giants, dragons, witches, and miraculous happenings then than there are now. But there were what must have been real events, stirring adventure, desperate strife, men of violence and women of great beauty, to give birth to the vast body of legend.

The age and the scene were wonderfully adapted to the rise of a magnificent pagan king. Britain was beset with painted Picts on the North, the wild men of Eire on the West, and the horn-hatted Saxon pirates on the East and South. It seemed, after the Roman soldiers had left Britain to her fate, that law had ceased to be, and men would be ever less in the land, and the wild beasts more.

Some strong hand helped turn back the tide of barbarism. Perhaps it was that of a barbarian king. In this novel the reader may again meet Elain of the Lake, but as she might have been instead of the bloodless lady of myth; Vivain, the unforgettable Temptress; Modred, who in myth stands for unmitigated evil but who in this novel is a complex, fascinating person; and a character hardly less in stature than the king’s — Merdin, known in legend as Merlin, the king-maker, and the last of the great Druids.”

Tamasin's Kitchen Classics by Tamasin Day-Lewis (£15.50)Publisher: Weidenfeld & Nicolson — 2006Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0297844288]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. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “What is a classic? Do we even know any more? This book is full of the dishes Tamasin is cooking now. Her classics are all about taking the best ingredients, the dishes she and her family know and love, and breathing new life into them.

Bread and butter pudding becomes gingerbread and butter: in go some pears and a whiff of stem ginger. She swaps classic lemon curd for vibrant raspberry, blackcurrant and redcurrant curd, turning them into tarts, ice creams and steamed sponge puddings. Classic old-fashioned dumplings are revived with a hit of horseradish, a sprinkle of parsley, or a hint of English mustard.

There are New World dishes and Old World dishes: a perfectly simple black-and-white risotto balsamico, a warming New England clam chowder, an autumnal, musky morel and wild boar stew.

When the cupboard is all but bare Tamasin whizzes up little crab custards spiked with sherry, Parmesan and cayenne pepper. In the fruitless winter months, she invents a grainy dried fig and hazelnut ice cream and stirs last year’s homemade Seville orange marmalade into a stupendous creamy cake.

Tamasin’s Kitchen Classics is the book that will bring fresh tastes and scents to jaded palates and inspire all keen cooks. A classic for our times.”

Nothing Is Impossible with God by Kathryn Kuhlman (£11.50)Publisher: Prentice-Hall — 1974Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0136252931]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with a crease to the foot of the upper panel. 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.

Pathfinder: The Untold Secret Mission in Iraq: The Inside Story of the Pathfinders, Bastard Son of the SAS by David Blakeley (£10.50)Publisher: London: Orion — 2012Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Signed by the Author.[ISBN: 9781409144090]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Description: Signed by the author on the title page — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Colour Photographs; Maps [2];

From the cover: “First in — the official motto of one of the British Army’s smallest and most secretive units, 16 Air Assault Brigade’s Pathfinder Platoon. Unofficially, they are the bastard son of the SAS. And like their counterparts in Hereford, the job of the Pathfinders is to operate unseen and undetected deep behind enemy lines.

When British forces deployed to Iraq in 2003, Captain David Blakeley was given command of a reconnaissance mission of such critical importance that it could change the course of the war. It’s the story of nine men, operating alone and unsupported, fifty miles ahead of a US Recon Marine advance and head straight into a hornets nest, teeming with thousands of heavily-armed enemy forces. This is the first account of that extraordinary mission — abandoned by coalition command, left with no option but to fight their way out of the enemy’s backyard. And it provides a gripping insight into the Pathfinders themselves, a shadowy unit, just forty-five men strong, that plies its trade from the skies.

Trained to parachute in to enemy territory far beyond the forward edge of battle — freefalling from high altitude breathing bottled oxygen and employing the latest skydiving technology — the PF are unique. Because of new rules introduced since the publication of Bravo Two Zero, there have been no first-hand accounts of British Special Forces waging modern-day warfare for nearly a decade. And no member of the Pathfinders has ever told their story before. Until now. Pathfinder is the only first-hand account of a UKSF mission to emerge for nearly a generation. And it could be the last.”

The Graft by Martina Cole (£10.50)Publisher: Headline — 2004Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0747269696]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.Description: From the cover: “Looking back, Nick Leary couldn’t say exactly what kept him awake that night. It might’ve been the oppressive heat, or the distant rumble of thunder. He’d had a lot on his mind; perhaps he’d been thinking about the ‘respectable’ Essex business that he ran, or about his two young sons sleeping in the room next door. Or was it simply the sound of his beautiful wife’s steady breathing beside him…

Whatever it was, he was awake when he heard someone’s footsteps downstairs, and Nick’s instinct was to fight. It had always been that way, to protect the things he treasured most: his family, his privacy, his reputation. He’d grafted for these things all his life and no one was going to jeopardise them now.

Unless, of course, Nick’s instinct is wrong, and what happens this time is the start of something even he cannot stop…”

The book is divided into five separate workouts, each lasting approxi mately 15-20 minutes, that can be interchanged depending on what time of day you wish to exercise and for how long. For example, Rise and Shine is the perfect morning wake-up routine, Energizer will help you to kick-start the day, Ultimate ‘ Stretch is especially good for increasing muscle tone, while Classical and the aptly named De-Stress are ideal for winding down in the evening. The principles behindYogacise , its importance to lifestyle and the contribution of classical Yoga are fully explained and there are clear step-by-step instructions for all the exercises.

Fully illustrated throughout with attractive step-by-step colour photographs, Yogacise will appeal to everyone seeking a safe and easily attainable means of looking and feeling both mentally and physically on top form.”

Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with wear and loss at the spine ends and corners, several short closed tears.Description: 1st Reprint.

Anatomy and Physiology is not treated as a separate, rather dull subject, but is shown to be closely allied to the diseases and treatments which the nurse encounters daily on the wards. The information contained in the book is presented as simply as possible with explanations of technical terminology given where necessary. A large number of cross references are given as a further aid to study. Nurses should be encouraged to get into the habit of using them, since they establish links which connect one fact with another until a more complete picture of the subject is obtained. “Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

Like most women, you will discover that pregnancy works more effectively than any expensive beauty treatments and that you have never looked better. Your skin is clearer and softer; your hair is glossy and shining with health; and you have a special radiance about you that people cannot fail to notice.

The Pregnancy Beauty Book shows you how to make the most of your beauty potential during pregnancy with special features on skincare, haircare, manicures and pedicures, daytime and glamorous evening make-up, bathing beauty, dental care and suncare.

Regular exercise will strengthen muscles and stamina in readiness for labour, and speed up the process of regaining your figure after birth. Thus there are monthly features on antenatal exercise and a special section on getting back into shape after your baby is born. Staying fit and strong will help you look better, too, and feel more confident about your appearance. You will have more energy to enjoy your pregnancy and more pride in your new curves. The fitter you are and the healthier your diet, the less likely you are to suffer from many of the aches and pains that have come to be associated in most women’s minds with pregnancy. This book can help you prevent and avoid many common problems such as backache, stretch marks and varicose veins.

Each section covers one month of your pregnancy, and you can easily find the information you require on beauty, health, exercise, fashion and food at any time throughout your term. With the help of this extensively illustrated book, every mother-to-be can feel beautiful and approach her pregnancy in a positive way, secure in the knowledge that she is doing the best for herself and her baby. Thus she can enjoy to the full one of the most momentous and happy periods of her life.”

Spiritual Direction for Every Christian by Gordon H. Jeff (£6.00)Publisher: SPCK — 1989Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0281043183]Condition: Very Good. Heavily faded at the spine.Description: From the cover: “For too long spiritual direction has been regarded as an elitist activity, designed for the benefit of the clergy and a few specially devout laity. This book presents a timely alternative to that view, arguing that spiritual direction is a benefit which every Christian can enjoy. But if that is so, where will we find all the competent spiritual guides to meet this need? Gordon Jeff’s answer is that in every congregation there are people — women and men, lay and ordained — who possess a latent gift for spiritual direction. To develop that gift, all they need is the encouragement, advice and training that practising directors can offer. This is just what Gordon Jeff is doing through the training courses he has set up in the London diocese of Southwark. As a result he is able to share in this book the approaches and methods which have already proved their worth to many who would not otherwise have experienced this vital form of Christian guidance. Here, then, is a wise, practical handbook for all who would like to know how the skills of spiritual direction may be applied in their own congregation. The book will also be helpful as a concise introduction to the nature and purpose of direction, and how it relates to other forms of pastoral care and counselling.”Notes: Size: C Format (8½" x 5¼"). 104 pages.
