The Fantastic Art of Frank Frazetta [3 Volumes] by Frank Frazetta (£69.00)Publisher: London & Sydney: Pan Books — 1976Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0330247972]Condition: Good. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers with a scuff to the spine of volume III which also has a short tear to the join at the tail of the spine. Edges of the text block lightly tanned on all volumes and just encroaching the margins of some of the plates. Description: 3 volumes of 5, only. Volume I is a reprint of the 1975 edition. Volume II is the first US edition of 1977. Volume III is the first US edition of 1978. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Plates; Colour Drawings;

From the cover: “Frazetta is without question the master of Fantasy Art. He exploded all the old preconceptions of Fantasy as a pastoral realm of cute elves, sprites and wise wizards, and re-envisioned it as a brutal wilderness inhabited by virile, ruthless warriors hewn from pure muscle, and armour-clad amazons with astonishingly voluptuous bodies, locked in perpetual combat with horrific primeval monsters and demons.

Once Frazetta had wielded his paints Fantasy could never be the same again. Born in Brooklyn in 1928, he absorbed the colourful pulp adventures of Tarzan and Flash Gordon, and in the fifties he excited the next generation of Fantasy-lovers with his comics and illustrations for the seductive lady blood-sucker, Vampirella, and most fatuously Robert E. Howard’s hero, Conan The Barbarian. His work, with its high levels of testosterone, wicked humour and compositional skill, has been a profound influence on film-makers such as John Milius, Clint Eastwood and George Lucas. In the sixties Frazetta’s images became the poster art for psychedelic counterculture.

Frazetta was no political radical, but his art ripped apart the clean, ordered world of suburban America and replaced it with a gorgeously rendered wasteland of violence and sensuality.”

Teamwork in Industry by F. J. Burns Morton (£63.00)Publisher: Chapman & Hall — 1948Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with loss at the head of the upper panel and closed tears to the lower. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Tanning and spotting to the blanks and endpapers. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: From the cover: “The author’s previous book, The New Foremanship, endeavoured to propound and analyse the problem of supervision in the light of present circumstances and likely trends. It was suggested that new methods of supervision were "necessary to bring social relationships, which in industry had remained static, into line with the great developments which had taken place in technical organisation; and further, what was needed in foremanship was also necessary in other managerial practices.

This present book, which is also addressed to all in authority and to those thinking employees who believe in the possibilities, of their jobs, sets out to show the direction of the second step. It examines the nature of better working relationships, and shows that harmonious, consciously directed working together leads to increased efficiency. Thus the name Teamwork in Industry.

The twelve chapters discuss such vital topics as the human factor and the influencing of human behaviour, co-operation and industrial relations, job satisfaction, selection and training of staff, incentives, leadership, supervision, discipline, absenteeism, working conditions and social organisation. The book concludes with a useful bibliography and index.”

Handley Page Aircraft Since 1907 Revised by Derek N. James by C. H. [Christopher Henry] Barnes (£56.00)Publisher: London: Putnam — 1987Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0851778038]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: 2nd (revised) edition, 1st printing, [First Published: 1976] Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps; Plans;

From the cover: “First heard in aviation a few years before the 1914-18 war, the name of Handley Page became one to conjure with when strategic bombing of Rhineland armament factories began in 1917 as a counter-blow to the German submarine blockade of the British Isles. After the war an O/400 and a V/1500 were the first two aircraft to fly all the way from England to India, and soon afterwards Handley Page pioneered commercial air transport services across the English Channel and in China, India and South Africa.

A new generation of twin- and four-engined monoplane bombers — Hampden and Halifax — emerged to challenge Hitler’s ambition between 1935 and 1945, giving rise in turn to the Hastings and Hermes transports of the 1950s; finally the nuclear age produced the Victor transonic bomber, which remains in service as the RAF’s long-range flight refuelling tanker A new line of smaller civil transports began with the acquisition in 1948 of Miles Aircraft Ltd and from the Reading factory stemmed the very successful Dart-Herald.

This book contains photographs, three-view drawings and data of every type of Handley Page aircraft built and flown, as well as many historic project drawings not previously published, and completes the author’s trilogy, which already includes Bristol Aircraft since 1910 and Shorts Aircraft since 1900 in the series.”

The Puritan Gift: Triumph, Collapse and Revival of An American Dream by Kenneth Hopper & William Hopper (£53.00)Publisher: I. B. Tauris & Co. — 2007Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1850434190]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs;

From the cover: “Where does the Protestant work ethic come from? And how did America achieve such dominance in management for so long?

The Puritan Gift traces the origins and characteristics of an American managerial culture which, over the course of three centuries, turned a handful of small colonies into the greatest economic and political power on earth. It argues that the energy, social mobility, competitiveness and capacity for innovation, all of which lie at the heart of that culture, have their origins in the discipline and ethos of America’s first wave of European immigrants: the Puritans. Drawing lessons from their own extensive experience, the authors warn that, as America distances itself from the core values which underlay its commercial and economic success during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, it puts its own future prosperity and security at risk.

The book also explores how American managerial culture has spread throughout the world. In particular it examines the impact of the US occupation of Japan on the social and manufacturing mores of that country and explains how America’s inherited style of management interacted with Japanese traditions.

This is an original exploration of the dramatic and far-reaching consequences of the Puritans’ ‘gift’ to America — the ethos which produced the early success of America and what came to be known as the American dream.”

Compulsory Mass Medication: A Factual Guide to the Fluoridation Issue Which Touches the Personal Health and Well-Being of Every Man, Woman and Child by P. [Patrick] Clavell Blount (£48.00)Publisher: The Clair Press — 1964Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges with creasing to both the panels and sunning to the spine. Price Clipped. Previous owners' inscription to the front pastedown. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “Compulsory Mass Medication shows that the fluoridation of the public water supplies is not a medical/dental issue and never has been despite the fact that millions of sincere and honest people believe that it is, just as millions of people once believed that the world was flat, but that did not make it so. Compulsory Mass Medication shows that the issue is a political/ethical one and that no person or group has the right to promote changes in the bodies of others without their consent. That is the issue and it has nothing whatever to do with the choice of medicines.

Compulsory Mass Medicationmaintains that once fluoridation has been accepted by the nation, we shall have given the State the right to interfere with the functioning and development of people’s bodies without the consent of the owner. Fluoridation is the first real attempt to make people surrender their existing right to think for themselves and to follow the dictates of conscience. If this attempt succeeds there is no knowing where it will end.

The author criticises in detail the British Ministry of Health booklet advocating fluoridation and the false ethics behind it. There are also important chapters giving verbatim extracts from Parliament and Congress and the views of leading medical and religious authorities.”

William Nicholson, Painter: Paintings, Woodcuts, Writings, Photographs by Edited by Andrew Nicholson (£39.00)Publisher: London: Giles de la Mare — 1996Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1900357003]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper appears unevenly faded on the lower panel otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Contains: Black & white photographs; Chronological tables [1]; Colour plates; Black & white plates; Black & white drawings; Colour frontispiece; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “William Nicholson (1872-1949), who is known by many for his early woodcuts and the radical posters of the Beggarstaff Brothers in the 1890s, has become recognized as one of the foremost English artists of his time for the whole range of his work. His haunting downland landscapes, his remarkable still lifes, which capture light and colour in an entirely fresh way, and the varied portraits by which he mainly earned his living form the core of his output and have become greatly prized. This book, compiled by two grandsons, Andrew and Tim Nicholson, is with its representative selection of his pictures the first to do justice to the extraordinary diversity of William Nicholson’s oeuvre.

It provides at the same time a documentary account of William Nicholson’s life, using contemporary records, articles and reminiscences, and above all quoting extensively from the numerous letters William wrote to his family and friends, many of them to his son Ben Nicholson, and from the letters they wrote to him as well. The majority are from private sources and have never appeared in print before. What emerges in this unique and beautifully illustrated volume is a highly detailed and most appealing portrait of the man and the artist.

What he painted, why and for whom; what spurred him on to experiment and artistic adventure; how he fared in times of elation and anguish; how he combined the serious playfulness of his vision with a deep affection for nature; and how he collaborated with some of the leading men of his day, among them Rudyard Kipling, J. M. Barrie, William Orpen, Edwin Lutyens, his son-in-law Robert Graves, and Winston Churchill — all this is revealed, and much more.

William Nicholson, Painter includes 110 colour plates of his oil paintings and over 250 black and white reproductions and photographs.”

The Late, Great Pennsylvania Station by Lorraine Diehl (£33.00)Publisher: The Stephen Greene Press (Vermont) — 1987Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0828906033]Condition: Very Good. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Black & White Drawings;

From the cover: “New York City’s Pennsylvania Station, conceived as a symbol of the wealth and power of America’s mightiest railroad, became a national monument during its short life. This history of the famous depot is not only a story of the superb achievement of architect Charles Pollen Me Kin, but also a tale of human struggle and of a complex and dangerous engineering triumph. Lorraine Diehl’s lively, authoritative text, together with vintage photographs and drawings, recaptures the classical grandeur of the building and the drama and turbulence of its times — from the sunny pre — World War I era through 1963, when it was destroyed in the appalling act of civic vandalism that spurred the modern Landmark Preservation movement.”

The Illustrated Encyclopedia Of Commercial Aircraft by Editor-in-Chief Bill Gunston (£27.00)Publisher: Windward — 1980Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition.

Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Colour Drawings; Diagrams; Tables;

From the cover: “This book is a comprehensive account of all the major commercial aircraft, from the first jets like the Nene Viking and Jet Lancastrian, to possible futuristic designs like slew-winged airliners and hydrogen-fuelled aircraft. Also included are the wide-bodied giants of today, the Boeing 747 and the 11-86, together with supersonic types such as the Anglo-French Concorde and the Russian Tu-144. The latter was the first supersonic airliner to fly and enter service, even though its full-scale development began after that of Concorde.

Civil helicopters play a vital role in urban communications and link remote and difficult sites like oil rigs and timber camps. The wide range of general aviation aircraft complement these helicopters, since both are used for tasks like search and rescue, crop-spraying, air-ambulances, fire-fighting, aerial photography and as executive transports.

The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Commercial Aircraft contains lists of specifications, three-views, cutaways and colour illustrations, as well as the historical and mechanical details of the aircraft which are changing the face of the world.”

Bruised at the corners of the lower board. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Chronological Tables; Colour Photographs; Black & White Drawings;

From the cover: “Architect George Howe believed there were three pioneers of American architecture: Louis Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright, and William L. Price. While Wright and Sullivan are still regarded as central figures in the history of American architecture, Price awaits rediscovery.

Price, a disciple of Frank Furness who practiced in Philadelphia from 1883 to 1916, established the character of two of the nation’s greatest resorts, Atlantic City and Miami, thus shaping the architecture of the Roaring Twenties. Although his biggest and best-known projects, the Art Deco Traymore Hotel in Atlantic City and the Chicago Freight Terminal, were both destroyed, his Arts and Crafts Utopian community in Rose Valley, Pennsylvania and his Garden City community in Arden, Delaware survive to attest to the vigour of his ideas and the leadership he exerted.

Price left a legacy of exquisite houses, railroad stations, and commercial structures that were widely emulated and recall the best works of Frank Lloyd Wright and Greene & Greene. In addition, Price was an accomplished writer and furniture designer whose work was regularly featured in Gustav Stickley’s The Craftsman.

Price’s role in shaping American architecture is uncovered in this lavishly illustrated volume, which documents the architect’s complete works — including over 350 hotels, houses, and pieces of furniture — bringing to light this unknown American master.”

Designing Pictorial Symbols by Nigel Holmes; Rose DeNeve (£20.50)Publisher: Watson-Guptill — 1985Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0823013278]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine of the dust wrapper, top corners of both panels slightly rubbed with a small puncture to the lower panel near the spine. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “THIS BOOK appeals to the basic creative search of designers for original approaches as it shows in practical, easy-to-follow steps, the conceptual thinking and artistic follow through needed to create effective pictorial symbols. Graphic designers, illustrators, editors, and others who, are responsible for presenting information in a compact, instantly recognizable form will find invaluable, proven methods and fresh results developed by one of the world’s best and most widely known graphic designers.

The book begins with a fascinating introduction that traces the emergence of pictorial symbols from the first abstract strokes cut 50,000 years ago by our ancestors into bone or rock, to the development of written symbols, the use of trademarks, and today’s spreading use of pictorial symbols in cars, on roadways, and in transportation terminals to bring international understanding to a world separated by hundreds of languages.

The second section consists of symbols used in recent years in Time magazine. These cover an enormous range of subject matter touching nearly every aspect of human endeavour — from entertainment to electoral politics, from sports and crime to energy, disarmament, and war.

The third section describes the intricate, creative process that marked the famous American Renewal print campaign symbol used by Time, Life, Fortune, Sports Illustrated, People, Money, and Discover magazines as a common thread for a series of magazine articles on the revival of the American Dream.

In the fourth section, you will see the process and solutions to the challenging assignment of presenting some twenty sports symbols that must be fresh in themselves, but also different each year, as used to identify sports broadcasts in the official English ‘TV/radio guide, Radio Times.

A rich gallery of annotated examples makes up the book’s fifth section.”

A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper, more heavily at the foot of the upper panel and the tail of the spine. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “London today is vibrantly reinventing itself, and the quality of its new buildings is putting the city at the forefront of world architectural innovation. Through a wealth of stunning new projects and bold revisions of its older buildings, architects from all quarters are reimagining London’s cityscape.

New London Architecture paints a comprehensive picture of the most important recent developments in London, as well as works yet to be completed. Renowned architectural writer Kenneth Powell examines over 100 different projects, and traces the political manoeuvring and creative flowerings that are reshaping modern London.

The architectural renaissance of Britain’s capital has affected the design of everything from residential skyscrapers to corporate offices; from internationally important sports facilities to chic new boutiques; from imaginative new medical centres and libraries to striking riverside dwellings for students. This book illustrates in full colour not just the headline-grabbing public works such as the British Airways London Eye, the Jubilee line extension, the Millennium Bridge and interventions at the British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum, but also a wide variety of smaller-scale projects that together offer a manifesto for radical change.

Old battle lines between radicalism and conservatism have been abandoned as Londoners are proving themselves ever more ready to respond to the ambitious and dynamic changes happening around them. Norman Foster’s Swiss Re tower — the controversial ‘gherkin’ — being built in the heart of London’s financial district could not have been countenanced even a decade ago. The Prince of Wales’s famous attack on the proposed National Gallery extension as “a monstrous carbuncle” now appears entirely outmoded.

With illustrations, plans and critical texts of the projects that are combining to reinvigorate London’s urban landscape, New London Architecture provides a detailed and authoritative portrait, indispensable to professionals and public alike, of a city avid to embrace”

Dark Summit: The Extraordinary 1 Story of Everest's Most Controversial Season by Nick Heil (£19.00)Publisher: Virgin — 2008Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition.

From the cover: “EVEREST — the highest mountain in the world and the ultimate climbing challenge. More and more people are attempting this potentially lethal climb, as commercial tour operators become ever more numerous. In 2006, eleven people died attempting to reach the summit, the highest number for ten years. But unlike 1996, there was no surprise blizzard, only the constant dangers posed by unstable ice, merciless cold, thin air — and human nature.

In Dark Summit, Nick Heil tells the shocking true stories of David Sharp, a young British solo climber, who was passed by forty mountaineers as he lay dying on the slopes of the mountain, and Lincoln Hall, who was left for dead yet miraculously survived.

A fascinating true story of high-altitude disaster, this is also the first thorough examination of the multiple deaths on Everest in 2006, as Nick Heil asks what climbing the world’s highest peak really means for those who take on the challenge and how far they will go in their single-minded pursuit of the ultimate mountaineering prize.”

Italy 1530-1630 by Eric Cochrane (£18.50)Publisher: London & New York: Longman — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0582483646]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper has slipped a little, moving the titling off-centre on the spine and exposing the original fold on the leading edge of the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Contains: Black & white plates [12]; Maps [1];

From the cover: “Italy 1530-1630 is the latest volume to appear in the distinguished Longman History of Italy, edited by Professor Denys Hay. It covers what is, for most English-speaking readers, one of the most obscure periods of Italian history. What we do hear of it is almost always pejorative, an unrelieved tale of political absolutism, rural refeudalization, economic crisis, religious repression, and cultural decline. But this picture is both incomplete and inaccurate, and in his eagerly-awaited survey Eric Cochrane has at last given the period its due. It magnificently sums up a lifetime’s study of this neglected century.

The period begins with the Sack of Rome in 1527 and the chaos of foreign invasion, and it ends with a series of destabilizing shocks — the War of Monferrato, the conflict between Pope Paul V and Venice, and the ravages of plague. Yet this century also saw the completion of the great masterpieces of the High Renaissance by Michelangelo and his contemporaries and the audacious experiments of their Mannerist and early Baroque successors. Professor Cochrane examines the achievements of these later masters with a seriousness and sympathy they have not always received from English-speaking historians. Their work, he argues, must be seen as a development, and not as a rejection, of their High Renaissance models.

But the achievements of the age were not solely artistic. The Treaty of Cateau-Cambresis in 1559 brought fifty years of peace, stability, and development — a time of political reconstruction, population increase, and industrial and commercial recovery. This was an age of profound religious piety and ecclesiastical reform: the age of Ignatius Loyola and the Society of Jesus, of Carlo Borromeo, and above all of the Council of Trent and the Counter-Reformation. Indeed, it was also an age of intellectual ferment, before the trial and abjuration of Galileo in 1633.

The history of Italy in the century after the Renaissance is a giant puzzle. Finding all the pieces, let alone fitting them together convincingly, is a quixotic goal. Yet Eric Cochrane, in his final challenging testament, not only gives shape to the period but also brings it exuberantly alive.”

Jeddah in the last quarter of the twentieth (Gregorian) century – or the first quarter of the fifteenth Hijra century – is a phenomenon. It is an ancient Arabian city, and the core of it is, to this day, traditionally Arab: a highly compact complex of fine nineteenth century merchants’ houses, mosques, schools and humbler dwellings, deep shaded alleys and a labyrinth of markets and walkways, with the history of its indigenous inhabitants written on every fanlight and corbel, lattice and balcony, dome and minaret. Jeddah has traditionally been the commercial centre of Saudi Arabia. At the same time, ever since the foundation of Islam fourteen Hijra centuries ago, it has been the arrival and assembly point every year for Muslims from all over the world closing in upon Holy Mecca on the greatest journey of their lives.

CHICANO VISIONS: American Painters On the Verge by Cheech Marin (£16.50)Publisher: Bullfinch Press — 2002Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0821228064]Condition: Very Good. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Plates [3]; Colour Drawings [96]; Essays by Max Benavidez, Constance Cortez & Tere Romo.

From the cover: “Chicano Visions: American Painters on the Verge is the most comprehensive survey of a remarkably dynamic, and growing, body of work. The Chicano art movement was developed outside the national and international spotlights, mainly in Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay area, San Antonio, and other cities in south Texas. Early on, when making a name for themselves in the 1970s, Chicano artists largely worked alone and without encouragement or acknowledgment from the art community. In time, a few important groups such as Los Four, Asco, and Con Safo created a sense of identity and cohesion. But it was city life — the barrio and the street itself — that provided the ultimate stimulus and common ground for these artists, who used city walls as their first “canvas”. In the past few decades, Chicano artists have emerged as powerful agents of change and drive. Figures such as Carlos Almaraz, Mel Casas, Carmen Lomas Garza, Gronk, Wayne Healy, Adan Hernandez, Leo Limon, Frank Romero, John Valadez, Patssi Valdez, and Vincent Valdez are among the twenty-six artists showcased here; they are but a handful of the Chicano artists — overwhelmingly university or art-school trained — working in the United States today.

Cheech Marin, best known as an actor, performer, and philanthropist, is the country’s foremost collector of Chicano art. Over the years, Marin has not only actively worked to support Chicano artists but has become their friend and most ardent spokesperson. As he writes in the introduction, “With little commercial encouragement, these artists have struggled to gain acceptance in the gallery world. Many painters show their works in restaurants, coffeehouses, or wherever there is a wall and an audience. What matters is they continue to create. “ Now, through Marin’s efforts and those of many other individuals and institutions, these richly appealing works are available to the public in this landmark publication.

At the core of Chicano Visions is a portfolio of ninety-six stunning paintings, largely drawn from Marin’s own collection. Three essays by leading scholars in the field, an introduction and commentaries on the works by Cheech Marin, and biographies of the artists combine to make this an invaluable art and reference book.

Chicano Visions is supported by a major art and cultural exhibition that will travel to fifteen U. S. cities over a five-year period.”

From the cover: “A quiet revolution has been taking place in the theory and practice of central and commercial banking during the last twenty-five or thirty years. It may be of some interest to draw together the experiences of the various countries and integrate the underlying trends as constituting part of a general pattern. As the central bank forms the keystone of the financial structure, recent trends in its role and financial policies have been sought to be interpreted in considerable detail. The changing role of the commercial banks has also been duly stressed. Further, the problems posed by the rise and growth of non-banking financial intermediaries like hire-purchase finance companies and development banks have called for close examination. Lastly, as the working of the international financial system has excited a great deal of controversy and as plans for the reform of the present system, and even for its replacement, have been widely discussed, it has been thought fit to devote some attention to such issues as a ‘central bank for central banks’ and the recently introduced ‘special drawing rights’ system as possible solutions of the problem of international liquidity. Although the coverage of the book extends over both developed and developing countries, the backdrop, by and large, has been the economic and financial structure of the latter with India occupying the centre of the stage.”

A Textbook of Money by S. Korteweg; F. A. G. Keesing (£14.50)Publisher: Longmans, Green & Co. — 1952Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine. Price Clipped. Ex-library with remnants to the first blank, library plate to the last blank, stamp to the title page and the reverse. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Light spotting to the blanks and pastedowns. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise.Description: First British Edition. [First Published: First published under the title of ‘Het Moderne Geldwezen’ by N.V. Noord-Hollandsche Uitgevers Maatschappij, 1945] From the cover: “The publication of a text-book on money cannot be justified by the lack of written material on the subject. Books, articles and learned discussions on money exist in abun dance, and every newcomer to the scene should explain what particular niche he intends his book to occupy.

The authors of this book have been struck by the fact that money not only presents difficult problems at the esoteric heights of academic polemics, but offers severe ob stacles to those who want to penetrate its somewhat more practical complexities. This book is aimed at the latter category, which includes both undergraduates and interested laymen. Any claim for originality is based on the didactic qualities of the book rather than on the novelty of its conclusions.

The book does not presuppose any prior knowledge about monetary problems, but starts at the beginning, and, developing its subject in a step-by-step fashion, strives to impart to its readers an adequate under standing of current monetary evolution. It explains the technical and institutional as pects of money against an historical back ground, discusses the theoretical relations between the flow of money and the flow of goods, and proceeds to an analysis of present-day monetary policies. Its first part confines itself to a country’s internal monetary problems, while the second part introduces the complications arising from economic relations with other countries. Its final part outlines the growth of monetary theory, and provides a link with more specialized studies in this field.”

The Wizard and the Warrior: Leading with Passion and Power by Lee G. Bolman; Terrence E. Deal; (£14.50)Publisher: Jossey-Bass — 2006Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0787974137]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Front flap has a light vertical crease otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: From the cover: “Why A Book About Wizards And Warriors as models for leadership? Because, as Peter Drucker once said, everything you learned is wrong — at best, it is misleading and insufficient. You typically learn in school, workshops, and seminars that if you can manage the work and serve the people, you have what it takes. It's not true. Maybe you have enough stuff to be a pretty good manager, but it takes a lot more to be a good leader. The Wizard and the Warrior gives leaders the insight and courage they need to take risks on behalf of values they cherish and the people they guide. Great leaders must act both as wizard, calling on imagination, creativity, meaning, and magic, and as warrior, mobilizing strength, courage, and willingness to fight as necessary to fulfil their mission.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Modern Jet Aircraft by Michael J. H. Taylor (£14.00)Publisher: Hamlyn — 1984Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0600347400]Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Scattered marks to the upper panel otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “Modern jet aircraft, both civil and military, have brought about radical changes in our concept of business and leisure travel and in the tactics and strategy of aerial warfare. Michael J. H. Taylor’s lavishly illustrated book describes and analyzes those aircraft which are in service today and explains their developmental history and the impact which they have had.

He begins by tracing the early history of jets from their beginnings before World War II through their rapid development during the post-war period. The United States of America has been, and still is, the most influential nation in the advance to the SR-71 Blackbird, which flies at nearly three times the speed of sound, and the commuter airline which transports its passengers at low cost and with as little trouble as they would experience catching a bus or train. Boeing, Lockheed and McDonnel-Douglas are the three giants of the US aviation industry, famous for their commercial jets such as the 747, L1011 and DC10 as well as their military aircraft like the B-52 bomber and their devastating fighters and ground attack craft. However their achievements do not belittle those of the smaller US companies like Lear who have revolutionized business travel by the introduction of the executive jet. The Soviet Union has also played a major, albeit isolated, role in producing jet aircraft and many of their products compare with those of the West, including the MiG-25 Foxbat, currently the fastest fighter in production. Europe too has developed some remarkable aircraft, often as the result of collaboration between two or more countries, as with the supersonic Anglo-French Concorde airliner and the Italo-German-British Tornado.

This readable and informative book describes all the major jet aircraft in use today, providing information about their technological capabilities, carrying capacity and armament where appropriate in fascinating detail. It is illustrated throughout in colour with more than 150 stunning photographs, making it an invaluable addition to the bookshelf of anyone interested in modern civil and military aviation.”

Antony Fisher: Champion of Liberty by Gerald Frost (£13.00)Publisher: Profile — 2002Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1861975058]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. Text complete, clean and tight. A nice copy.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Antony Fisher’s name is not familiar to the world at large, and yet his achievements were both extraordinary and far-reaching. A successful entrepreneur from his twenties, and a Battle of Britain fighter pilot who was decorated for innovation in gunnery training techniques in World War II, he later introduced chicken factory-farming to the UK and made a fortune in the process.

More than Fisher’s commercial success, though, it is his powerful effect on post-war politics that has won him a place in history. His deep-rooted concern with the liberty of the individual, crystallised by a meeting with the free-market thinker Friedrich Hayek (author of The Road to Serfdom), redirected his life. As a result of this meeting, Fisher funded the establishment of the Institute of Economic Affairs, an independent economic think tank that has had enormous influence on public policy and the views of leading politicians, notably Margaret Thatcher. In the words of the Conservative MP Oliver Letwin, writing in The Times in May 1994: ‘Without Fisher, no IEA; without the IEA and its clones, no Thatcher and quite possibly no Reagan; without Reagan, no Star Wars; without Star Wars, no economic collapse of the Soviet Union. Quite a chain of consequences for a chicken farmer’.

By the time Fisher died in 1988 (having lost his fortune in a new turtle-farming venture, and only four weeks after being awarded a knighthood in the Honours List), the IEA and its spin-offs around the world had played a crucial role in changing the direction of post-war politics for ever.

This is both a study of the springs of power and political thought, and a sensitive portrayal of a private family man. The author, who knew Fisher and many of those who worked with him, has produced a fascinating and revealing portrait of a man whose influence extended far beyond his reputation.”
