Text complete, clean and tight. A pleasant copy of an uncommon title. Description: From the cover: “This is a pony book with a difference. It deals sensitively with a young girl’s companionship with animals, and how she learns to manage them while at the same time developing self-reliance during a period of delicate readjustment. Jo Garrett is five when her mother dies, and her father wisely sends her away from his Suffolk farm to live with cousins in Sussex. So, until she is ten, she comes under the spell of ponies, caring for them as well as riding them. She then returns to the farm, and her father is pleased to notice what a self-confident child she has become, with definite ideas of her own as to what she wants from life. Jo’s personality is also contrasted with all the others in the story — both human and animal — who come fully alive as individuals in this entertaining account of country life. Finally, Jo’s slow adjustment to the idea of her father’s remarriage is described with understanding and insight..”Notes: Jacket designed by Elisabeth Grant. Illustrated by Elisabeth Grant.

From the cover: “Once upon a time there was a little girl called Rosemary who slept in a cot with sides, but she was growing so fast that her feet touched the bottom and her head touched the top. It was clearly time that she had a new bed. Buy me, whispered a funny little bed in the corner of the furniture store — so Rosemary did, and very glad she was too, because this bed knew how to fly! An enchanting little story by an author who really knows the ways of children. They will be entranced by Rosemary’s visits to the seaside, the circus and the gypsy encampment, and last of all her journey with Father Christmas, all in her magic bed. Molly Brett’s imaginative illustrations blend well with the story, making a picture book which will be a firm bedtime favourite.”

Nicholas and Alexandra: The Family Albums by Prince Michael of Greece (£77.00)Publisher: Tauris Parke Books — 1996Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 1850434948]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper which is very slightly pulled at the head of the upper panel and a short, closed, tear to the foot of the same. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs;

From the cover: “In the summer of 1918, Tsar Nicholas II, his Tsarina Alexandra and their five children were executed by firing squad at Ekaterinburg. The unique and revealing photographs in this book illustrate the intimate family life of the last ruling Romanovs from 1896, shortly after the marriage of Nicholas and Alexandra, to the family’s house arrest at Tsarskoye Selo palace in 1917, shortly before their death. These photographs have been selected from thousands taken by the Tsarina and her five children, which were mounted in their own and the Tsar’s personal albums. The albums have until now remained hidden for over seventy years in government archives in Moscow.

Whilst researching his book Imperial Palaces of Russia in the Autumn of 1990, Prince Michael of Greece was puzzled by an invitation to view material in the government archives. Thirty thick, leather-bound volumes, embossed with the Imperial monogram, awaited him -the private photograph albums, which the curators wanted to show first to a relative of the Romanov family.

Through his selection of images from the family albums, the author here tells the story of the last Tsar, one of the saddest of twentieth-century politics. Nicholas II was a man both unprepared and ill equipped to rule the greatest empire in the world, and under the influence of Alexandra, the wife he so adored, he led Russia to disaster. But theirs was also an extraordinary love story, as the three hundred photographs in this book reveal. Away from the responsibilities of Empire, we see a close and loving family of simple tastes and great candour. The photographs clearly illustrate the personalities of Nicholas and Alexandra and of their four daughters -Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia — and beloved son and heir Alexis, who suffered from haemophilia and whose every move was carefully watched.

The family were keen, and sometimes talented, amateur photographers, who took their own cameras with them everywhere, be it on family picnics or on state occasions. The book thus illustrates a fascinating transition from the joy and relaxation of the early years, through the tension caused by the Tsarevich’s illness, to the stresses and anxiety of the First World War and the coming Revolution. These photographs provide a new perspective on the life of the Imperial family, and constitute an invaluable historical document.”

The Call Of The Mother by The Lady Emily Lutyens (£32.00)Publisher: Methuen & Co. — 1927Binding: Paperback Condition: Good. A reasonable reading copy only. Heavily faded at the spine and less so at the panels of the fold-over printed wrappers. Edges of the textblock heavily spotted. Text acceptable but slightly fragile now.Description: 2nd Edition [1926]. From the introduction, which sets the scene somewhat: “’Of all the dangers now menacing civilisation the greatest lies in the fact that the coming generation is being so largely recruited from among the accidentally conceived children of the leisured and cultured classes, and the fertile progeny of the physically, mentally, and morally unfit. There are many causes which contribute to this result; on the one hand, venereal disease as a result of sexual indulgence leading to physical and mental degeneracy; the ignorance of the young about questions of sex leading them into bad habits and places of danger; on the other hand, the revolt of women against sexual subjugation; the high cost of living which makes many parents afraid to have children; and, above all, the use of artificial methods of birth control.”Notes: Size: 6¾" x 4¼". 96 pages.

Wisdom Of The Wild: How We Treat Our Planet by Anon. (£26.50)Publisher: Word Wide Fund for Nature — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Presentation plate to the first blank.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “There is no turning back. There never has been in history. Two hundred million American citizens are not going to leave the USA just to give back to the Indians the land that was stolen from them. The Inuit in Greenland are not about to climb into their kayaks to paddle back up the river of history. The wisdom with which “wild” peoples have animated their world cannot be fetched back at will. Nevertheless, there is a great deal to learn. This, for example: how, on the threshold of the third millennium, can we live once again in a finite world without consuming it? Pedagogues tell us that children need elements of the wild and disorder in order to become mentally sound adults. The child in its den is said to be subconsciously remembering the feeling of safety which our ancestors experienced in caves in the childhood of mankind. In Sweden, they let children fly back to the beginnings of humanity on the wings of their imagination, as it were. The wild as a tonic.

Henry David Thoreau’s suggestion that every major city should have some wildness in its vicinity (because otherwise its inhabitants would revert to the wild) is almost one hundred and fifty years old — and highly topical in view of the frustration which people feel in our concrete bunkers.

An end must be put to the dominance of the right angle. Protection programmes for spacious areas of wilderness have one purpose, among others, namely to preserve the charm of untouched nature. Real-life magic! Magic, or rather cheap tricks — that is what our oh-so-en-lightened world thought of the healing knowledge of the jungle Indians for such a long time. Until, at the sight of the burning rain forests, they realised that the best pharmacy in the world was going up in flames.

The awareness of its utility should not be the rescuers’ sole motive, however. If we only take up arms in defence of the earth where our immediate living conditions are threatened, we shall soon be sitting amidst the ruins of a barren planet. It is (unfortunately, some would say) not the case that when the trees die, man also dies immediately. There are no trees in the Mongolian steppes, but they are still not dead. The fact is, as an Indian chief once said: “After the deaths of plants and animals, you will die of the great loneliness in your hearts.” An appeal has been filed against this death sentence. This book contains a few passages from the defence counsel’s speech.”

The Sea, Ships & Sailors: Poems, Songs and Shanties by William Cole (£24.00)Publisher: Rupert Hart-Davis — 1968Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with nicks at the head of the spine and upper panel, heavier tanning at the spine and to the reverse. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Drawings;

From the cover: “There is a fantastic variety to the sea and I have tried in this collection to represent all its moods. The sea is hurricanes and lullabies, gaiety and doom, crashing surf and quiet depths. It is, above all, unconquerable.

So writes William Cole in his introduction. He has collected eighty-five poems, songs and shanties of varying tenors and tones from such diverse sources as Lord Byron and W. S. Gilbert, Aldous Huxley and John Updike, Shakespeare and Walt Whitman. He has divided them into eight different sections and has included authentic sea shanties, ‘A Cradle Song’ by Tennyson, and lan Serraillier’s The Ballad of Kon-Tiki. While some of the poems in this collection hark back to the era of romantic tales and dashing stories, such as Browning’s Herve Kiel and Masefield’s The Yarn of the Loch Achray.

Robin Jacques has brilliantly captured the spirit of the sea in his line drawings, which decorate and enhance the text throughout.”

A Game Called Survival: The Story of Betty di San Marzano and Her Children in Wartime Italy by Ian Reid (£23.00)Publisher: Evans Brothers — 1980Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0237455277]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine of the dust wrapper which is pulled and creased at the foot of the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Black & White Drawings;

From the cover: “On 8 September 1943 Italy concluded an Armistice with the Allies and was officially no longer fighting on the side of the Germans. But the wartime troubles of Betty di San Marzano, an Englishwoman married to an Italian and living near Spoleto, and her four children were only just beginning. In danger from both the German forces and revengeful local fascists, they had to leave their home and take refuge in a cramped loft in a tiny hamlet, and live a hand-to-mouth existence with the local peasants. Only to her eldest son could Betty explain the danger they were in: to the other children it must appear to be only a game — a game called survival.

lan Reid follows the fortunes and vicissitudes of the San Marzano family throughout the turbulent events of 1943 and ‘44 and tells of their often amusing, sometimes dangerous adventures helping escaped prisoners-of-war to rejoin the Allied forces, their return home only to flee again to escape the retreating German army, and the part they played in the almost farcical liberation of Spoleto. How Betty managed to keep her family together, and safe, despite the very real difficulties and dangers makes a delightful and heart-warming story.”

Janet Moyles draws on research findings from several countries which provide further evidence for establishing the value of play. She focuses on children between 4 and 8, examining the principles of play in early childhood education, and indicates how these principles can be put into practice. She provides a full justification for including play in the early year’s curriculum and encourages teachers, through examples of children at play, to review their own thinking on the issues in the light of core curriculum pressures.”Notes: Size: 9" x 6". 190 pages.

From the cover: “Long before Alfred became King of England, there was a mighty Arab empire in the East. For the Arabs, inspired by the teachings of Mohammed, had swept out of the barren deserts of the Arabian Peninsula and conquered country after country. Their lands stretched from Gibraltar to China, and for a while Baghdad was the crossroads of the world. Fur traders from the steppes of Russia mingled with spice merchants from India and China in the great bazaars.

This authoritative book brings alive for children and their parents the Golden Age of the Arab Empire which ended violently many hundreds of years ago, but preserved for us much of the learning of Greece and the ancient world.”

Fauna Britannica: The Practical Guide to Wild and Domestic Creatures of Britain by Duff Hart-Davis (£22.00)Publisher: Weidenfeld & Nicolson — 2002Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 9781407218779]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “Man has lived among animals for the whole of his existence on earth, first competing with them, then using, and all too often abusing them. But in the past fifty years or so people in Britain have become overwhelmingly urban, and in consequence have lost contact with nature and the country. Most children have little direct experience of animals and birds: they see them on television but rarely meet them in the flesh. Yet the popularity of farms open to the public demonstrates the affection that people have for animals, and also the beneficial effects that contact with animals can produce.

Fauna Britannica is a work of reference for people whose interest in animals has been awakened by passing acquaintance. This book is essentially a practical encyclopaedia of creatures, wild and domesticated, that have lived and now live in the British Isles. Without seeking to be exhaustive, it concentrates on the creatures that people are most likely to come across or to have read about. As well as being an authoritative guide, Fauna Britannica aims to show how attitudes to animals have changed over the centuries, and to demonstrate how our exploitation of them has had far-reaching consequences for the environment.

The author surveys those creatures such as the Steppe Mammoth and the Giant Irish Elk whose presence in Britain is revealed in the fossil records, and describes the exotic imports and menageries of historical times. He profiles many species of wild mammals, horses, farm animals, dogs and cats, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians and insects. Interspersed throughout the book are essays on various aspects of the countryside, including the reintroduction of the European Beaver, poaching, fox hunting, horse healers and the Scottish drovers. Social history, folklore and legend combine with scientific authority to make Fauna Britannica an enthralling survey of Britain’s creatures, then and now.”

This book is essentially a practical encyclopaedia of creatures, wild and domesticated, that have lived and now live in the British Isles. Without seeking to be exhaustive, it concentrates on the creatures that people are most likely to come across or to have read about. As well as being an authoritative guide, Fauna Britannica aims to show how attitudes to animals have changed over the centuries, and to demonstrate how our exploitation of them has had far-reaching consequences for the environment.

The author surveys those creatures such as the Steppe Mammoth and the Giant Irish Elk whose presence in Britain is revealed in the fossil records, and describes the exotic imports and menageries of historical times. He profiles many species of wild mammals, horses, farm animals, dogs and cats, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians and insects. Interspersed throughout the book are essays on various aspects of the countryside, including the reintroduction of the European Beaver, poaching, fox hunting, horse healers and the Scottish drovers. Social history, folklore and legend combine with scientific authority to make Fauna Britannica an enthralling survey of Britain’s creatures, then and now.”
