The Comic Art of Roy Wilson by Alan Clark & David Ashford (£19.50)Publisher: Tunbridge Wells / New York: Midas Books / Hippocrene Books — 1983Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0859362833]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper sunned heavily at the spine. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Contains: Colour plates; Colour frontispiece; Cartoons; Cartoon strips;

From the cover: “Throughout the last decade there has been a growing awareness of the value and merits of comic art. It is now becoming recognised that all through this century, some of the finest graphic artists have produced work of the highest standard for the comic papers of this country. One such artist stands out above all others as undoubtedly the finest Britain has produced: Roy Wilson (1900-1965).

Wilson played a major role in shaping the traditional British comic art style. There are those who believe he created it. He was certainly the most influential comic artist of his time and his style of drawing surpassed that of most of his contemporaries. He was also one of the most prolific, turning our many thousands of pen and ink drawings and scores of watercolour paintings.

Wilson s artistic life spanned more than 45 years and his work appeared in such titles as Funny Wonder, Tip Top, Jingles, Jester, Crackers, Sparkler and many other comics of the Amalgamated Press (now IPC). A representative selection of his voluminous output appears within this volume from his formative years in the early 1920’s, through what many believe to be his finest period in the 1930’s, to the assured and skilful drawings he was producing before his death in 1965.

Children’s comics being such a perishable commodity, much of the material to be found within the pages of this book is of rare value, the vehicles for its original appearances having, for the most part, long since disappeared into dustbins, paper drives and bonfires.”

From the cover: “This vivid narration of the events which have distinguished the origin of the American people and their astounding ascent to world pre-eminence, is history in its finest form. Here mellow wisdom and accurate knowledge are presented with enthusiasm, vigour, and a remarkable technical skill.

Mr. Adams presents the facts and occurrences from which so many inferences about the American people have been drawn. His purpose has been to depict the interplay of thought and action as they have combined in the evolution of the American nation, to describe the actual events which have swept across this continent in the last few centuries, so that all who read may make their own interpretation, may complete their own understanding of the drama of America.

A word on the method Mr. Adams has employed in writing this interesting history. By means of an unusual skill in assimilating material he has been able to give the reader a clear, complete, easily comprehensible and interesting account of the vast and active history of American life.”

The Fleischer Story Featuring Betty Boop by Leslie Cabarga (£16.00)Publisher: New York: DaCapo Press — 1988Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0-306-80313-5]Condition: Near Fine. Description: A Later Printing. Contains: Black & white photographs; Black & white drawings; Filmography; Cartoons;

From the cover: “The Fleischer brothers, Max and Dave, were animation pioneers. Creators of Betty Boop, Koko the Clown, and the Bouncing Ball, they also brought Popeye the Sailor Man to the screen and produced the first feature-length animated cartoon — on the theory of relativity!

Max invented the Rotoscope and for a while the brothers kept pace with Disney in performance and profit. But after 1942 the studio closed and their films vanished. What happened and how they developed are examined for the first time in this work — for many years out of print and a collector’s item. It is here, updated and enlarged with hundreds of sketches and storyboard layouts where these classic cartoons can once again receive the attention and adulation they deserve.”

The Hitler Emigres: The Cultural Impact on Britain of Refugees from Nazism by Daniel Snowman (£12.00)Publisher: London: Pimlico — 2003Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Signed by the Author.[ISBN: 0701168803]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Previous owners' name to the first blank. Description: Signed by the author on the title page — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium, with a flyer laid in. Contains: Black & white photographs; Black & white plates; List of sources;

From the cover: “The Hitler Émigrés is the story of those Central Europeans, many of them Jewish, who escaped the shadow of Nazism, found refuge in Britain and made a lasting mark on the nation’s intellectual and cultural life. The book features colourful portraits of some of Britain’s most celebrated artists, architects, musicians, choreographers, film makers, historians, philosophers, scientists, writers, broadcasters and publishers — all skilfully woven into the wider context of British cultural history from the 1930s to the present.

Emigres helped create the Glyndebourne and Edinburgh Festivals, the magazine Picture Post, films like The Red Shoes, the Royal Festival Hall and the cartoon character ‘supermac’. The founders of the publishing companies Phaidon and Thames & Hudson were émigrés, as were Ernst Gombrich (author of The Story of Art), Nikolaus Pevsner (who documented The Buildings of England’) and such key intellectual figures as the philosopher Karl Popper, the biochemist Max Perutz and the historians Eric Hobsbawm and Geoffrey Elton. Daniel Snowman considers the irony that many refugees (including three quarters of the future Amadeus Quartet) were interned by the British authorities as ‘enemy aliens’ — and some of them deported to Canada and Australia. And he writes of the mordant humour of George Mikes, ‘Vicky’ and Hoffnung, the entrepreneurial skills of Claus Moser and George Weidenfeld — and the sheer magnetism of such forceful personalities as Arthur Koestler and the musician and broadcaster Hans Keller.

Many of the Hitler émigrés became natural bridge-builders who helped enrich their new homeland with fresh insights from continental Europe. A number moved on to North America and elsewhere. Thus, Hitler, far from eliminating the cosmopolitan culture he so abhorred, helped spread it throughout the world.”

Great Western Progress 1835 - 1935 by Anon. (£9.50)Publisher: David & Charles — 1972Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0715356682]Condition: Good+ — in Good Dust Wrapper. Edges of the dust wrapper frayed, with a little loss to the top corner of the upper panel and a heavy crease alongside a 4" closed tear to the head of the lower panel. Boards slightly bowed with fading to the upper one. Text complete, clean and tight but slightly musty.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. Portraiture frontispiece. From the cover: “The Great Western Railway was more than a mere means of transport: it was a way of life. And never was this more clearly demonstrated than at the centenary in 1935. Only twelve years earlier all of Britain’s other main lines had been absorbed in the three new groups, the Great Western alone retaining its identity. By the mid-1930s, helped by skilful publicity and also by better financial results than those being obtained by the other three ‘groups’, the Great Western was truly in front. The GWR Centenary issue of The Times rapidly became a collectors’ piece and was soon reprinted in book form and published by the Great Western itself. Here, then, is a new impression of the book. It tells of the railway’b history and achievements, of its social altitude and future plans. Some of its illustrations are tantalisingly familiar; much of it appears as remote from us today as the age of the Romans.”Notes: Foreword or introduction by Sir Robert Horne. Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

The Ayes and The Noes by Christopher Hollis (£9.50)Publisher: MacDonald — 1957Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. Top edges of DJ slightly worn.Description: From the cover: “Who are our rulers? And why should we not laugh at them? What sort of a democracy is it that takes its masters with too reverent a seriousness? Readers of the Daily Express already enjoy their Cummings cartoon as a regular morning breakfast dish, and here he has brought together a more enduring gallery of the day’s leading political personalities, holding up their foibles to laughter and caricature.

Cummings’s brilliant drawings are partnered by Christopher Hollis’s witty and incisive verses. A former Member of Parliament himself, Christopher Hollis now writes Punch’s famous Essence of Parliament feature, for which Cummings again provides the illustrations. In The Ayes and The Noes they have given us ninety pages of fun and good-natured satire.”

The Story of Fitch Lovell 1784-1970 by Ambrose Keevil (£9.50)Publisher: Phillimore & Co. — 1972Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0850330742]Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges, some small nicks and chips. Dust wrapper tanned at the margins on the reverse and heavily faded at the spine externally. Price Clipped. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: Maps to the endpapers. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “COMPANY HISTORIES are often as dull and stale as a collection of old annual reports, having been dutifully compiled by a professional author from official records. Rarely is a major company fortunate enough to have an ex-Chairman who, after a lifetime in the business, is both willing and able to put pen to paper and record the events, recount the anecdotes and recall the excitement of its beginnings, its growth and its success. Sir Ambrose Keevil has done just this for the Fitch Lovell Group — company by company, from their beginnings as small family businesses in the 18th and 19th centuries, through to1 the period of vigorous growth and eventual merger within his own lifetime. He has provided a highly readable and entertaining account of an important piece of London’s commercial history, and of the history of the provisions trade. It is also a vivid and moving human story of the ordinary (and extraordinary) men who built up the several components, now united in the highly successful group of companies that plays such a powerful part in the contemporary food industry.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾".
