To Find A Golden Pony by Amanda Gavin [Clodagh Micaela Gibson Jarvie] (£278.00)Publisher: J. M. Dent & Sons — 1965Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the spine ends and corners with corresponding grazing to the dustwrapper. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. 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.

Freedom and Limit: A Dialogue Between Literature and Christian Doctrine by Paul S. Fiddes (£128.00)Publisher: Macmillan — 1991Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Signed by the Author.[ISBN: 0333491424]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and the top corners of the boards with commensurate wear to the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Signed by the author on the first blank — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium.

From the cover: “Writers of novels, plays and poems use their imagination with an evident freedom; by contrast, makers of Christian doctrine seem to impose limits, reducing the open-ended meaning of images to exact concepts and summing up the loose ends of stories in one unified Story. But the author of this study sets out to show how images and stories in literature can actually help the theologian to make doctrinal statements, while at the same time careful theological thinking can assist the critical reading of literary texts. Such a dialogue is worked out in studies of the poetry of William Blake and Gerard Manley Hopkins, and the novels of D. H. Lawrence, Iris Murdoch and William Golding. Here the tension between the freedom of imagination and the limits of doctrine is seen to be only a part of more far-reaching tensions of freedom in human life, which account for a sense of ‘fallenness’ and which a dialogue between literature and Christian doctrine can do much to illuminate. In all this, the relationship between imagination and revelation is never far from the centre of discussion.”

Human beings appreciate values such as beauty and goodness because such things are part of reality. If absolute morality is denied there will not be any progress for mankind as the things that matter most will be explained away. I am very doubtful whether history shows us one example of a man who, having stepped outside traditional morality and attained power, has used that power benevolently..”Notes: Size: 8½" x 5¾". 52 pages.

The Book of Exploration by Ray Howgego (£32.00)Publisher: Weidenfeld & Nicolson — 2009Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 9781407222752]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Charts; Colour Photographs; Maps; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “A chronological tour of the history of exploration by a prolific world traveller and one of the leading experts of our time, from the pioneering excursions of the ancient Egyptians to the first surface-based crossings of the top and bottom of the world.

Before the turn of the 19th century, ventures into uncharted lands required material or spiritual reward to justify the perils of shipwreck and hostile natives, and dangers yet unknown. Until recent times exploration for the sake of knowledge alone was rare, and mostly undertaken by intrepid traders, gold seekers and valiant Christian missionaries. In this book the author selects more than 150 of those he considers to be the most influential and unusual journeys of discovery, setting each firmly in its historical context. The book chronicles the personalities and motivations, the conditions that had to be endured, and the contribution that exploration has made to our knowledge of the world. It is replete with extraordinary personalities: the heroic adventurers who set out into the unknown, battling against the elements in order to commit their findings to journals and maps; the pioneers who risked everything in search of fabled riches; and the explorers who set out to conquer the deserts, poles and oceans of the globe.

The book is organized simply and chronologically, beautifully illustrated with contemporary maps, paintings, journal entries and other artefacts, and with entertaining asides and sometimes unorthodox interpretations based on the author’s lifetime study of the subject.”

Ornamental Design 1850 Ornementale Kunst 1850 Motifs Ornementaux 1850 Design Ornementale 1850 El Diseno Ornamental 1850 by Pepin Van Roojen (£30.00)Publisher: Amsterdam: The Pepin Press — 1998Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 9054960302]Condition: Very Good. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers with a small sticker ghost to the upper panel. Text block has a faint ripple throughout although the plates are well preserved. A good copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Plates;

From the cover: “The material presented in this book was originally published in the early 1870s, and representative of styles prevalent in the preceding decades. This was a period during which ornamental design became increasingly widespread, but, ironically, not a time during which many new designs were developed. Instead, the past was raided by architects, artists and craftsmen, and shapes and patterns that at one point in history may have had revered meanings, were copied, altered, combined or split to pieces, without much consideration for their original purpose. However, the result is a wealth of beautiful design. Practically every ornamental style known to early and mid-nineteenth century Europeans, from ancient Egyptian to Baroque, is represented here. The main items illustrated are ceramics, metalware, glass objects, furniture, carpets and other textiles, either complete, or in detail. There are also some architectural elements and examples of interior decoration.

Design inspired by ancient ancient Egypt displays the presence of stylised lotus flowers, motifs reminiscent of hieroglyphs, zig-zag patterns and spiralling constructions. Many examples of Greek ornamental design were copied from friezes on which mythical events were recorded. Very popular Greek ornaments are fret, spiral and bead borders, variations on the echinus (egg and dart), the acanthus and rosettes and palmettes. A principal characteristic of Greek design is the use of columns in architecture and interiors, topped with elaborate capitals. Very simply put, Roman adornment seems to have been largely an exuberant extension of the Greek visual vocabulary, with Etruscan elements added. Some of the mosaic designs in this book were clearly based on Pompeian originals. The so-called Byzantine school is a blending of styles: Greek, Roman, and early Christian ornaments, combined with elements from Persia and Syria. Byzantine ornamentation was one of the sources of Islamic decorative style, with elaborate geometrical patterns due to the interdiction of representations of living things. Illustrative of the Moorish style are the inter-woven formations based on Arabic calligraphy. The Gothic period contributed, among others, variations on the clover leaf: trefoils, quatrefoils and cinquefoils, but also the fleur-de-lis and the Tudor rose. During the Renaissance, the classical Greco-Roman models were rejuvenated and complemented with elements from the Near Orient. Especially in architecture, classical orders were followed. In ornamental design, freer patterns became fashionable. Of course, the Renaissance motifs used during the period covered by this book, were, again, often combined with other styles.”

The Celtic Church In Somerset With A Chapter On North Devon by H. M. [Henry Maurice] Porter (£28.00)Publisher: Morgan Books — 1971Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with a couple of short, closed, tears to the top edge. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Maps to the endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “This book fills in a part of the great blank in the history of Somerset and North Devon in the two and a half centuries between the end of the Roman occupation and the arrival of the Saxons in the South-West. It does so by giving an account of the Welsh monks who crossed to the south shore of the Bristol Channel and set up churches and monasteries, inspired by their own severely ascetic version of Christianity. This derived, at a couple of removes, from the Christian Fathers of the Egyptian Desert in the early fourth century. These monks, called “Saints", who had an outlook totally different from ours, were tremendous personalities and their biographies are full of marvellous tales.

Glastonbury matters occupy a considerable space. The author thinks that the monastery was founded about A. D. 500 and he deals with the sixth century Celtic saints there, as well as discussing some of the legends objectively.”

Text complete, clean and tight but a small tear to the head of the last blank and scuff to the pastedown.Description: A deep study of the general doctrines of Roman Catholicism. The book is dispassionate but insistent on the Reformation Theology. From the introduction: “Few Protestants will deny that it is necessary to give constant and serious attention to the basis and structure of the Roman Catholic Church. The need for such contemplation passes far beyond any inclination to enter into the details of specifically theological questions. That the tremendous conflict of the sixteenth century still makes itself felt in the remotest comers of our national life is an indication of the basic tensions and forces involved.”Notes: Size: 9¼" x 6¼".

The Treacle Mine Affair by D. E. Tucker (£28.00)Publisher: The Book Guild — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0863328407]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Slight tanning to the edges of the text block otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: From the cover: “One summer the inhabitants of Bincombe begin to behave strangely. They do not know they have been ‘pixillated’ by a peculiar effluent from the local disused lead workings, which include the oddly named ‘Treacle Mine’.

When Peg and Robin join their country cousins Helen and Adrian at Up-hill Farm for the holidays they form an intrepid team to unravel the fate of some stolen cattle and the mystery of the mine. They become entangled in an adventure much more dangerous and exciting than anything they had bargained for. For instance, Adrian’s Geiger counter shows such disturbing results on samples of water that radioactivity adds a frightening threat to the adventure. Strangers invade the village, headed by a master criminal called ‘The Octopus’. They are obviously up to no good and the daring quartet decide to infiltrate the Roman Cavern — scene of the crooks’ nefarious activities.

The boys make an horrific underground descent through a swallow-hole, but their dangerous attempt only raises more questions as to what dreadful scheme the gang are actually involved in. A good deal of hard work on a steam traction engine, plus the loyal support of their dog Shep, enables the cousins to penetrate the villains’ defences and uncover a wicked intrigue which threatens even more than the well-being of the village.

The final part of the adventure takes them into awesome underground passages, where stalagmites and stalactites provide a surrealistic setting for a crime which has distinctly contemporary significance. This thrilling narrative not only gives the reader an exciting mystery to solve — it also provides rich information on country living and on some of the environmental issues that concern us today.”

Christianity and the World Religions by Hans Kung (£24.00)Publisher: Collins — 1987Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 000217619X]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with the expected associated abrasion to the dust wrapper. Top edge of the text block slightly soiled. Description: From the cover: “There are 4. 9 billion people living on this earth, and of these, 1. 4 billion are nominally Christian — exactly one third of the world’s population. That compares with 723 million Muslims, 583 million Hindus, and 274 million Buddhists.

Whether I am a Christian or a non-Christian, what is my attitude towards these other religions? That question is becoming ever more urgent, since not only the geographical horizon of our religious world but its historical horizon as well have expanded enormously. In a world so closely knit together, the old religious boundaries are becoming increasingly blurred, and we find large numbers of people with different faiths even in our own country, in our home town, in our factories and schools, often in our street. What indeed is my attitude towards these other religions?

Conversation between Christianity and Islam, Christianity and Hinduism, and Christianity and Buddhism had not been going on in earnest until this century. This book is an attempt to draw up something like an interim balance sheet of the twentieth-century conversation, in order to stimulate further discussion, and indeed to make us consider afresh what “religion” really is..”

Edges of the textblock heavily tanned. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Photographic endpapers & blanks; Black & White Photographs; Maps to the endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose. So wrote Jim Elliot at the age of twenty-two, sweating over Greek roots and patristics at Wheaton College.

Seven years later, writes his widow,he and four other young men… sat together on a strip of white sand on the Curaray River, deep in Ecuador’s rain forest, waiting for the arrival of a group of men whom they loved, but had never met — savage Stone Age killers, men known to all the world now as Aucas.

The circumstances of the death of these men are by now known throughout the world in one of the great missionary adventure stories of modern times. But this is the first account of the whole life of one of them — a life that, though hid with Christ in God , was in part revealed in some of the most poignant and moving spiritual writings of our time.

Using to the full these rich journals, his widow has selected the most powerful, revealing passages and woven round them the story of his life. Shadow of the Almighty is a tremendous biography of an adventurous life and is also exceptional devotional literature. Jim Elliot’s life and testament may well be counted among those truly great Christian writings that will endure.”

A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Plates; Maps;

From the cover: “THIS richly illustrated book tells the story of Christianity from its origins to the present day; Written by a team of scholars, all authorities in their fields, it spans 2000 years of colourful incident to give a uniquely authoritative history of Christianity for the general reader. Every aspect of the faith is explored. The introduction discusses Christian interpretations of the historical process and the relations between religious and artistic inspiration. The first section runs chronologically from the earliest Christian communities to 1800. There are chapters on Western Europe in the Middle Ages, and on Eastern Christendom, Christianity and Islam, the Reformation, the Enlightenment, and the expansion of Christianity. The second section is divided by geographical area, and covers the period from 1800 to the present day. There are special studies of Britain and Europe, North America, South America, Africa, India and the Far East, and the Orthodox Churches of Eastern Europe. The final section, ‘Christianity Today and Tomorrow’, considers questions of Christian conscience and belief and explores new images of the Christian community, ending with a glimpse of the future of Christianity. Throughout, the book reflects the changing world in which Christians have found themselves, and gives full weight to events and movements where the Christian response has been challenged and re-evaluated. There are over 350 illustrations, and 32 full-colour plates, all specifically chosen to complement the broad-ranging text. The book also includes ten maps, a chronology, annotated guides to further reading, and a full index. Authoritative, comprehensive and highly readable, this book captures the richness and vitality of Christian art and thought in a wide variety of cultures and times.”

From his prolific correspondence his wife Vera and his close friend Edwin Robertson have compiled a selection of letters which not only throw fresh light on a remarkable and very human Christian, but will prove a great encouragement to others who are experiencing the darkness of the soul.”

Waymarks by G. E. Makins (£22.00)Publisher: William Sessions — 1987Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 1850720266]Condition: Very Good.Description: From the cover: “Waymarks are the small pointers along the way, which provide us with the reassurance of being on the right path. The author (previously an Art Teacher) looks for such pointers, in attempting to build up a ‘natural’ religion, based, as possible, on direct experiences, rather than the accepted guides from Church and Scripture; his aim is to approach religion through life, and not life through religion. Through the ‘dark wood’, a path must be chosen, so, the Quaker path is selected, finally approaching the Christian faith from the ‘experiential’ way, and not from unthinking acceptance of authority.”Notes: Size: 8¼" x 5¾". 116 pages.

Paul and Conflict Resolution: An Exegetical Study of Paul's Apostolic Paradigm in 1 Corinthians 9 by Robinson Butarbutar (£21.50)Publisher: Paternoster — 2007Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 9781842273159]Condition: Very Good.Description: From the cover: “This book is a literary and historical exegesis of Paul’s apostolic paradigm in 1 Corinthians 9. The author argues that chapter 9 is part and parcel of Paul’s unified arguments of 1 Corinthians 8-10, which are written to mediate in a dispute over food offered to idols. The questions of how the dispute emerged, how Paul arranges his arguments in the three chapters, and what role 1 Corinthians 9 has in the overall discourse are addressed carefully in the book. Moreover, the question of why Paul and his co-workers did not receive financial support from his audience, which was contrary to the practice of the other missionaries and the normal workforce of the time, and of why he uses such a practice as an example to be imitated by those insisting on their right to eat food offered to idols, are dealt with judiciously. Based on his exegesis of 1 Corinthians 9, the author furthermore attempts to see the relevance of 1 Corinthians 9 for dispute resolution today, taking the conflict within his own church as an example. .”Notes: Size: Trade Paperback (9¼" x 6").
