Simple Upholstery by Dorothy Hart; John Halliday; (£54.00)Publisher: Dryad Press — 1971Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0852190603]Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wraps. Light spotting to start and finish. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise.Description: 5th Edition. Illustrated with black and white photographs & diagrams. From the cover: “This book is designed to give a practical scheme of the heavier kind of upholstery which, given the necessary tools and materials, can be carried out in any senior school for boys and girls. The subject offers a complete change, and the girls especially seem to welcome the heavier type of work involved. The scheme is definitely graded, from a very simple beginning to the upholstering of a chair seat, and includes the choice of fabrics for use in covering. The practical and artistic aspects are not separated, stress being laid on good form in construction as well as care in choice of colour and pattern in furnishing.”Notes: Size: 8¼" x 6". 56 pages.

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".

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.”

Gardening Made Easy: A Step-By-Step Guide To Planning, Preparing, Planting, Maintaining And Enjoying Your Garden by Jane Fearnley-Whittingstall (£16.50)Publisher: Weidenfeld & Nicolson — 1995Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0297833073]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little pulled at the edges. Small tear to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “Jane Fearnley-Whittingstall’s Gardening Made Easy will appeal equally to the experienced gardener and the beginner. Written by the internationally-renowned garden designer, this approachable and easy-to-follow manual explains everything you need to know to create and maintain a successful garden, whatever its si/e, shape and condition, its limitations and potential.

Her philosophy is simple: it is knowledge that transforms gardening from a chore to a pleasure. With its clear, step-by-step instructions, her Gardening Made Easy will double the satisfaction you get from gardening and your garden, while halving the work you put into it.

The book is divided into three major sections, ‘Making or Remaking a Garden , ‘Looking After Your Garden’ and ‘Becoming a Specialist’. The first part discusses the fundamentals of gardening: how to plan and design a garden, taking into account your needs and its soil, climate, location and sixe; how plants live and reproduce; how to choose the right plants, with imaginative suggestions for plant coordination; and how to create a garden from scratch, from clearing neglected waste ground, to planting/transplanting and laying a new lawn. The chapters in the second section outline the techniques vital for maintaining the garden: pruning, weeding, watering, feeding, fighting diseases and pests, and basic propagation. For the more confident gardener, the third section explains more specialized skills, with separate chapters on the kitchen garden, water gardening, containers, and tending plants with special needs: roses, alpines, herbs and wild flowers.

Drawing on thirty years’ experience in five gardens of her own, offering numerous tips and warnings, Jane is a sympathetic teacher who combines a designer’s eye for the potential of a garden with a profound practical knowledge. She answers all the questions a beginner could possibly ask, while at the same time offering an invaluable refresher course to more experienced gardeners.

This is a reference book to which gardeners will wish to return over and over again. With around eight hundred full-colour illustrations, including inspirational garden designs and step-by-step diagrams, and over a thousand plant profiles, this is the definitive gardening manual.”

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.

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.”
