[ISBN: 0316729523]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Drawings; Colour Drawings;

From the cover: “This is a truly exceptional collection of drawings from one of our most revered cultural commentators. Gerald Scarfe began his career in the 60s working for Punch and Private Eye before taking a job as a political cartoonist for the Daily Mail. He then worked for Time Magazine in New York before starting his long association with the Sunday Times that still exists today in the form of his weekly drawings.

His varied career has seen him work with Pink Floyd (The Wall, Wish You Were Here), Roger Waters and Eric Clapton (The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking), Disney (Hercules), English National Ballet (The Nutcracker), Los Angeles Opera (Fantastic Mr Fox) as well as produce such iconic images as those for the titles of Yes Minister and Yes Prime Minister. His work has featured in the New Yorker and various BBC TV films such as Scarfe on Sex and Scarfe on Class. Exhibitions of his paintings and drawings have appeared in the Tate Gallery, the National Portrait Gallery and the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery. He is viewed by many as both a national treasure and a genius and this is the first collection of his work to appear for 20 years.”

Noel Coward and His Friends by Cole Lesley; Graham Payn; Sheridan Morley; (£12.50)Publisher: Weidenfeld & Nicolson — 1979Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 029777557X]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges, small puncture to the upper panel hear the join, edges of the dust wrapper lightly age toned as are the edges of the boards. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “From The Vortex in 1924 (‘scandalous’ said the Daily Mail) through half a century to what he himself called ‘Dad’s Renaissance’, Sir Noel Coward was the most talked-about and multi-talented figure in the English-speaking theatre. Through half a hundred plays, innumerable songs, poems, films and short stories, to say nothing of a novel, several revues and countless paintings, Coward sustained and developed his unique talent to amuse: an industrious and painstaking entertainer with the contradictory image of a playboy of the West End world, his career survived all the ups and downs of a roller-coaster ride and he himself lived to illustrate the maxim that success is very largely the ability to survive failure. ‘My life’, he once remarked, ‘has been one long extravaganza.’ Now, for the first time, the three executors of the Noel Coward estate have come together to document that extravaganza. This is a collection of public and private photographs (many not seen before), music sheets, unpublished songs, paintings, programmes, posters, manuscript pages, decor and costume designs, letters, cables and caricatures which taken together illustrate the career of the master entertainer as never before. From the vast Noel Coward archives stored in Switzerland, London and New York, Cole Lesley and Sheridan Morley (both of whom have written highly-acclaimed biographies of Sir Noel) together with Graham Payn, who worked in many of his most successful shows, have assembled hundreds of illustrations which add up to a celebration and documentation of one of the most remarkable careers on record.”Notes: Jacket designed by Behram Kapadia.

Covering two years of New Labour government since 1999 including the landslide victory at the General Election in June 2001, Nature Notes III shows how the great and the good might look as small, feathered or furry, or large and pachyderm, with Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott as both an Unhappypotamus and a Rail — ‘a bird that travels nowhere, fast’ — William Hague as a MORI eel ‘on the rocks’ on the Blackpool shoreline at party conference time; Prime Minister ‘Tony’ Darwin’s Theory of Devolution (‘he denied he was attacking God’s work because, after all, he was God’).”Notes: Size: 8½" x 10¾".

A menagerie with a vegetable patch, the world of 'Nature Notes' is a place where the great and the good can and do become the small and the furry: Boris Yeltsin as a Muscovy (lame) duck; Ian Paisley as an Orange-utan ('Devours all greenery'); and Baroness Thatcher as a rabid old bat ('Its venom is of European origin, and any bite can prove gravely injurious to grey-haired, bespectacled gentlemen'). Anything is possible — John Prescott can even become a Great Tit.”Notes: Size: 8½" x 10½". Pictorial boards. 111 pages.

Reconciliation: Islam, Democracy and the West by Benazir Bhutto (£9.50)Publisher: Simon & Schuster — 2008Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 1847372732]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Edges of the text block lightly tanned.Description: Later Printing. From the cover: “From the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, who finished writing this extraordinary book just days before her assassination, comes a groundbreaking vision for how to bridge the widening gap between the Islamic world and the West.

Benazir Bhutto returned to Pakistan in October 2007, after eight years of exile, hopeful that she could be a catalyst for change. Upon a tumultuous reception, she survived a suicide-bomb attack that killed nearly two hundred of her countrymen. But she continued to forge ahead, with more courage and conviction than ever, since she knew that time was running out — for the future of her nation, and for her life.

In Reconciliation, Bhutto recounts in gripping detail her final months in Pakistan and offers a bold new agenda for how to stem the tide of Islamic radicalism and to rediscover the values of tolerance and justice that lie at the heart of her religion. With extremist Islam on the rise throughout the world, the peaceful, pluralistic message of Islam has been exploited and manipulated by fanatics. Bhutto persuasively argues that America and Britain are fuelling this turn toward radicalization by supporting groups that serve only short-term interests. She believed that by enabling dictators, the West was actually contributing to the frustration and extremism that lead to terrorism. With her experience governing Pakistan and living and studying in the West, Benazir Bhutto was versed in the complexities of the conflict from both sides. She was a renaissance woman who offered a way out.

In this riveting and deeply insightful book, Bhutto explores the complicated history between the Middle East and the West. She traces the roots of international terrorism across the world, including Western support for Pakistani general Zia-ul-Haq, who destroyed political parties, eliminated an independent judiciary, marginalized NGOs, suspended the protection of human rights, and aligned Pakistani intelligence agencies with the most radical elements of the Afghan Mujahideen.

She speaks out not just to the West, but to the Muslims across the globe who are at a crossroads between the past and the future, between education and ignorance, between peace and terrorism, and between dictatorship and democracy. Democracy and Islam are not incompatible, and the clash between Islam and the West is not inevitable. Bhutto presents an image of modern Islam that defies the negative caricatures often seen in the West. After reading this book, it will become even clearer what the world has lost by her assassination.”

Thelwell Country by Norman Thelwell (£6.50)Publisher: Magnum — UndatedBinding: [ISBN: 041701080X]Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy.Description: From the cover: “Thelwell Country is the English countryside, only more so. His foxhunters and farmers, picnickers and gypsies, and his notoriously pony-struck children, are all representative of man in uneasy communion with nature. The people and animals Thelwell laughs at are real — he knows the countryside intimately. As H. F. Ellis of Punch says in his foreword, this is ‘a recognisable world where bulls have mass and momentum, stone walls have knobbliness and texture, and combine-harvesters squelch heavily through genuine mud’. Those who have delighted in Thelwell’s cartoons in Punch and the News Chronicle, or in the pages of his first book Angels on Horseback, will know what to expect. This is (with occasional excursions into country towns and even into Scotland) a hilarious initiation into the realities of rural England.”Notes: Size: A Format (Approx. 4¼" x 7"). 96 pages.

Thelwell Country by Norman Thelwell (£4.00)Publisher: Eyre Methuen — 1970Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 041329580X]Condition: Poor. A reading copy, just, being rubbed at the edges of the wraps with well-thumbed pages.Description: From the cover: “Thelwell Country is the English countryside, only more so. His foxhunters and farmers, picnickers and gypsies, and his notoriously pony-struck children, are all representative of man in uneasy communion with nature. The people and animals Thelwell laughs at are real — he knows the countryside intimately. As H. F. Ellis of Punch says in his foreword, this is ‘a recognisable world where bulls have mass and momentum, stone walls have knobbliness and texture, and combine-harvesters squelch heavily through genuine mud’. Those who have delighted in Thelwell’s cartoons in Punch and the News Chronicle, or in the pages of his first book Angels on Horseback, will know what to expect. This is (with occasional excursions into country towns and even into Scotland) a hilarious initiation into the realities of rural England.”Notes: Foreword or introduction by H. F. Ellis.
