The Handyman In The Home: In 3 Volumes by Edited by Arthur W. Judge (£40.00)Publisher: Caxton Publishing Company — 1956Binding: Hardback Condition: Very Good. Pages lightly age-tanned otherwise a pleasant set.Description: September Reprint of the 2nd Edition. [First: 1930] Illustrated with black and white photographs & diagrams. From the preface: “As its title indicates, this work has been prepared expressly for the practical handyman desirous of undertaking a wide variety of jobs connected with the home, garden, garage and small workshop, including not only the domestic repairs and renovations that become necessary from time to time but also useful improvements and additions to the home and its contents. The keen home dweller, with a knowledge of the use of the simple tools and materials described in these volumes, can not only tackle most household repairs and additions expeditiously, but also avoid a good deal of expense. Apart from these considerations, there is always the satisfaction associated with the completion of a job that would otherwise have meant calling in someone else for the purpose. In addition to the extensive range of household repairs, fittings, furniture and other relevant items dealt with in this work, there are also a number of sections, including those on homecrafts, hobbies, sports accessories, outdoor constructions, etc., which will be found both useful and profitable to the handyman and housewife. Since many of the articles in these volumes deal with woodwork repairs and new constructions, it was considered desirable to include a comprehensive section, written by a well-known expert in such matters, on the subject of carpentry and woodworking tools, so that the reader who is not very well acquainted with the use of the latter can improve both his knowledge and experience.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 7".

The Efficiency Experts: An Impartial Survey of Management Consultancy by Laura Tatham (£18.00)Publisher: Business Publications — 1964Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges, slightly tanned. A nice copy of a not-so-common title.Description: From the cover: “Are management consultants the answer to a businessman’s prayer? Or are they unprincipled rogues who, for an exorbitant fee, tell a company nothing it does not already know and saddle it with a lot of elaborate, unnecessary and expensive procedures?

To answer these extreme questions and many more between, Laura Tatham has obtained first-hand evidence from dozens of consultants and from as many clients, both satisfied and dissatisfied. This book is the result of her inquiries.

An impartial survey, The Efficiency Experts examines in detail what management consultants are, how they work and what they set out to accomplish. It suggests ways in which the businessman can make best use of consultants, and how he can assess whether or not a firm is likely to do a good job. A number of case histories describe both successful and unsuccessful consulting assignments.”

The Thinking Man's Guide to Golf: The Common-sense Way to Improve Your Game by Colin Montgomerie (£14.50)Publisher: Orion — 2003Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0752853724]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “Colin Montgomerie has always said that he could save an amateur golfer five or six shots a round if he were able to caddie for them; and that is what he sets out to achieve within the pages of his first instructional book. The seven-time European Tour number one is one of the world’s most accomplished golfers, and in The Thinking Man’s Guide to Golf he uses his own unique common-sense approach in order to shave shots from your score.

Monty sets out to give the reader an A — Z guide on how to improve your game. Starting with the basics, he goes on to talk about curing common faults, improving your short game, choosing the right equipment and all other aspects of the Royal & Ancient game, including:

  • The four key swing thoughts that have made Monty the golfer he is.
  • How to cure your slice and hook.
  • The best way to learn how to shape your shots.
  • Why using a belly putter maximises your chances of holing more putts.
  • How to hit the speciality shots that make the top Tour professionals so deadly around the greens.
  • How to get the most from your practice sessions.
  • Why improved fitness can help your game.
Most crucially, within the extended chapter dedicated to playing smart golf, Monty teaches you the tricks that will enable you to reduce your scores without changing your swing. He understands that the average amateur cannot spend as much time practising as the Tour professionals, which is why he puts so much emphasis on the best ways to improve your course maintenance. The advice is simple, and is presented in a clear and concise manner that golfers of all standards can learn from. What’s more, it has also been proven to work.”

Choosing the Perfect Plant: Selecting the Best Plants For Your Garden by Susan Berry & Steve Bradley (£14.00)Publisher: Hermes House — 1999Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1840383720]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine of the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “Every garden is unique and every gardener is faced with a different set of conditions. Your garden may be sunny or shady or you may have heavy clay soil or moist wet areas, but the combination of factors in your garden will influence the plants that you can grow successfully. Plants are expensive and so it is worth considering carefully before buying new shrubs and perennials to ensure that you choose those plants that will give you the best results. Choosing the Perfect Plant sets out to solve these problems and to give helpful advice and suggestions. The book is divided into six sections: dry sun, shade, acid soils, chalk soils, clay soils and moisture-loving plants. Each section is organized alphabetically and includes all those trees, shrubs, herbaceous perennials and climbers — the core planting of any garden — that will do well under those conditions. There is an identifying colour photograph, a description of the plant, instructions on planting and cultivation, and advice on propagation, pests and diseases. Each chapter ends with a list of further plants that will grow under those conditions and, where relevant, provides additional advice on bulbs and roses.

Choosing the Perfect Plant features old favourites, which no garden should be without, as well as more unusual plants, making it an invaluable guide for anyone looking for clear advice on choosing the best plants for their garden.”

Country Gardening Country Style: A Natural Approach to Planning and Planting by Peter Thompson (£14.00)Publisher: David & Charles — 1991Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0715398210]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Black & White Drawings; Diagrams; Tables;

From the cover: “Many gardeners dream of creating a real country garden, full of atmosphere and tranquillity, but such gardens are seen less and less as suburbia encroaches on village life. In this book, Peter Thompson shows how to recreate the authentic feel of the country garden, taking the reader on a voyage of discovery through the countryside and explaining how to use what is already there as a guide to designing and planting a beautiful garden.

He challenges fashionable definitions of country style, and introduces new ways of gardening that are gentler, more relaxed and more enjoyable than conventional methods based on total control of the garden environment. He shows how to recreate lost features such as meadows, ponds and orchards, and explains how to use traditional materials and styles to harmonise completely with the surrounding countryside. Throughout, there is a wealth of practical suggestions for planning the garden and choosing trees, shrubs and perennials.

Inspiring colour photographs, together with detailed plans and drawings, show how gardens can be made to complement any environment, from sturdy stone and moorland to a picturesque thatched village — and demonstrate that, once the principles have been absorbed, the real flavour of the country can be recreated even in the heart of a city.”

From the cover: “Smooth, sandy beaches- over 700 miles in length and therefore uncluttered — safe swimming under sunny African skies, a longer season than the European rivieras, comfortable modern hotels, good food and wine, a hospitable people: these are some of the good reasons why increasing numbers of tourists are choosing to visit Tunisia. But of course, the country offers far more. There are the exotic sights and sounds of Tunis and the other ancient towns. There are the magnificent Roman remains such as those at El Djem and Dougga. There are the mosques and the lively shopping souks, and excursions not only for sightseeing but also for fishing or a wild boar hunt. For the adventurous traveller there are the attractive oases and the Berber villages, and as many colourful customs as could be found anywhere. Few visitors can resist the palm-fringed beaches of the Odyssey’s island of the Lotus-eaters — Jerba. An ideal place for every kind of holiday. And Nina Nelson — a devotee of the country and author of several fine travel books — is the ideal guide to Tunisia’s many facets. Her stimulating and informative text is enhanced by six maps and by 23 pages of first-rate photographs.”

A Double Life by Phil Neale (£11.50)Publisher: Ringpress — 1990Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Signed by the Author.[ISBN: 0948955317]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper.Description: Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs; Signed by the author on the title page - unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium.

From the cover: “A DOUBLE LIFE is the account of a genuine sporting all-rounder. Phil Neale will almost certainly be the last man to combine a professional soccer career with county cricket, following in the illustrious footsteps of Denis Compton, Arthur Milton and Willie Watson. For more than a decade, Neale played for Lincoln City, winning two promotion medals to the Third Division, while batting for Worcestershire in the County Championship. In his spare time he also managed to pick up an honours degree in Russian from Leeds University. Neale speaks frankly about the pressure of soccer in the lower divisions, about the quirks of fortune that prevented him gracing the First Division and the pleasure at occasional games against the likes of Glenn Hoddle, Johnny Giles, Steve Archibald, Alan Devonshire and George Best. He also offers fascinating insights into the character of the man who took a chance with him at Lincoln City — Graham Taylor, now one of English football’s top managers. Neale describes graphically the times when soccer clashed with cricket, particularly when he was suspended by Lincoln City for choosing cricket ahead of the winter game. He is now English cricket’s most successful county captain, having picked up four trophies in the past three seasons. He tells of his frustrations at missing out on international honours and the particular challenge involved in captaining star players like lan Botham, Graham Dilley and Graeme Hick. Written in conjunction with BBC Radio’s PATRICK MURPHY, this book is a unique insight into the demands on a man who was lucky enough to play two professional sports at the same time.”

New Parents: A Guide to Pregnancy, Baby and Child Care for Today’s Mothers and Fathers by Edited by Dr. David Harvey (£10.50)Publisher: Hamlyn — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0600561615]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper. Dust wrapper a little age-toned but not unpleasant.Description: From the cover: “For today’s parents, the wonderful experience of bringing a baby into the world can often be spoiled by the anxieties and frustrations of coping with modern approaches to childbirth. High technology in our hospitals has produced a strong reaction from those who fear that childbirth is being dehumanized, while theories behind such important issues as breastfeeding, foetal health and post-natal depression seem to change with alarming regularity. It is small wonder that many new parents are both concerned and bewildered, and this book has been written both to inform and reassure, so that mothers and fathers on the threshold of such a momentous change to their lives remain in full command of their rapidly changing circumstances. Covering pregnancy, childbirth and childcare up to the age of five, New Parents is an essential work of reference for everyone concerned about how their baby is born and how it will grow and develop in the crucial years of early childhood. Chapters deal with every aspect, physiological and emotional, from antenatal care and the delivery itself to cleaning, bathing, nappy changing and potty training. Separate chapters deal with problem pregnancies, intensive care for newborn babies, and older children with special needs. There is also full information on pre-school development, from baby to toddler to child, while a section on the sick child covers safety and accident prevention in the home, positive health care and a full breakdown of common ailments in babies and young children, together with the appropriate steps to cope with them.”Notes: Size: 10¾" x 7½".

Everyman's Dictionary of First Names by Leslie Dunkling & William Gosling (£9.50)Publisher: J. M. Dent & Sons — 1983Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0460030310]Condition: Very Good — in Very 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. A little scuffing to the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: From the cover: “First names have never been so important as they are today, when everyone claims the right to be recognized as an individual. Now that the choice of names is wider than ever there could be no better guide to them than this new book — the most important, authoritative, up-to-date and thorough dictionary of first names to have been published.

Because of the authors’ exhaustive statistical research — in Britain, America, Canada and Australia — the 4,500 entries in the book (mentioning over 10,000 names) reflect with considerable accuracy the names which have been generally used in the English-speaking world in the last few centuries, and especially in the modern period. Leslie Dunkling and William Gosling explain where these names came from, when they have been most used and, if possible, why they were most used. Their book differs from previous works of this kind in its use of wide-ranging name-counts, many of them privately assembled, in its unique consideration of the interplay between British and American names, and in the variety of information given about each name.

Not every first name can be included in this Dictionary but as many as 90% of the first names used in the English-speaking world will be found herein. First names so often reflect the changes in society that each name here also tells a story about the world in which we live. Parents with the pleasant task of choosing a name from those that are available will be sure to find one in these pages that is ‘just rightj while browsers and others will enjoy reading about both the names that are familiar or in fashion as well as those that are unusual or long since discarded. In short, this is a book which affects, and interests, us all.”

Mr Speaker by George Thomas (£9.50)Publisher: Century — 1985Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0712607064]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dustwrapper. Dustwrapper a little rubbed at the edges with laminate lifting slightly at the foot of the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs.

From the cover: “George Thomas, a coalminer’s son from Tonypandy in Wales, was elected Speaker of the House of Commons in 1976.

It was the year of Harold Wilson’s resignation as Prime Minister and Jeremy Thorpe’s as Liberal Party Leader. The Labour Government lost its overall majority in the Commons and, faced with a desperate struggle to find votes, the procedural rulings of the Speaker became matters of passionate controversy. Tempers were lost, scuffles broke out on the floor of the House and the mace — the symbol of the Speaker’s authority

- was wielded in anger by a Front-Bench MP.

During these turbulent years, George Thomas was the right man in the right place. His success as Speaker came towards the end of a career that had begun in Wales, first as a school teacher and then in politics, which he entered as a Christian Socialist in support of beliefs that have lasted a lifetime.

His moving and affectionate memoirs tell the story of a man of principle who was equally at home with his constituents in Cardiff and with the leaders and statesmen with whom he was to come into contact as he progressed from the Back Benches to his appointment as Secretary of State for Wales with a seat in the Cabinet. He revives memories of some of the main events of the past twenty years, from the tragedy of the Aberfan disaster, where he provides a moving glimpse of Lord Snowdon helping to console the bereaved, to the Investiture of the Prince of Wales, where he tangled with the Marshal of England and master of ceremonies, the Duke of Norfolk.

Mr Speaker also gives a fascinating glimpse of the Labour leaders in office, seen both from George Thomas’s position as a member of the Cabinet and during his seven years as Mr Speaker. After his retirement in 1983 he was created First Viscount Tonypandy and, in the best traditions of the Speaker’s office, he returned to Westminster

- this time to the Upper House — to continue to serve his country. George Thomas’s undoubted ability to inspire affection was mirrored in the invitation by Prince Charles to read the lesson at his wedding. In choosing him for this honour, Prince Charles paid tribute to the integrity and charm which shine through these pages..”
