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.”

Exploring The Arts by Beatrice Cox (£10.50)Publisher: Longacre Press — 1961Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good+ — in Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and the top corners of the boards with a little wear to the dust wrapper as a result, frayed at the spine ends and corners. Price Clipped. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Pages lightly age-tanned. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs;

From the cover: “THIS is the book for young readers who want to know what it’s all about — music ballet, painting, sculpture, the theatre, architecture, literature. But it will disappoint those looking for a cram course in culture, for it is far from the dull account of the arts which so often hopes to enchant with dreary lists of who wrote what, and when. In this volume airy fairy theories are kept in their proper place and each chapter is given individual treatment by well-known contributors. Some are serious in tone, others not so serious. All are enthusiastic.

There can be no mistaking the flute for the oboe after reading Neville Marriner’s unorthodox but apt descriptions of the sounds and functions of the various instruments of the orchestra. Stanley Reed explains why no film is ever ‘just like the book’. For the newly recruited ballet-goer Caryl Brahms offers suggestions for first programmes. The essential delights of an evening’s opera are caught in the sketches Sir Hugh Casson made at Glyndebourne. And if any reader has wondered why certain artists painted in the way they did, why writers adopt pen-names, how a cartoon film is made, then this book offers some of the answers.

On the lighter side, the drawings of the late Gerard Hoffnung effectively explain the diminuendo, the glissande, the oom-pah; while Patrick Campbell adds a warning note for all future Wagner fans.

Particular care has been given to the illustrations of the book, and the result is a well balanced and lively combination of text, photographs and drawings.”

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 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".
