Caves of Ice: Diaries 1946 & 1947 by James Lees-Milne (£46.00)Publisher: London: Chatto & Windus The Hogarth Press — 1983Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0701126574]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper sunned at the spine, a little tanned and spotted on the verso. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Contains: Portrait to the frontispiece; Photographic end papers & blanks;

From the cover: “James Lees-Milne’s wonderfully witty and evocative wartime diaries — Ancestral Voices and Prophesying Peace — described his perambulations around England on behalf of the National Trust, returning to London between trips to restore himself in more familiar or congenial company. Caves of Ice takes the story on into 1946 and ‘47, the wickedly cold winter of which is reflected in the title. Once again we find Mr Lees-Milne chugging up and down the country in his temperamental motor-car, calling on dilapidated country houses and their often eccentric owners. Back in London, he takes tea with Ivy Compton-Burnett and Margaret Jourdain (marvelling each time at their consumption of cakes), consorts with the Harold Nicolsons, the Pope-Hennessys, Sibyl Colefax, Nancy Mitford and the boisterous Randolph Churchill, makes gruelling trips to Sweden and Italy, and contemplates his own career with that self-deprecating wit and sense of the absurd that makes him so engaging, and so hilarious, a chronicler of his time. Combining learning lightly worn with social and literary gossip of the most compelling kind, Caves of Ice is also — in the words of A. L. Rowse, reviewing Ancestral Voices — ‘a contribution to the social history of the age’. It will reinforce Mr Lees-Milne’s reputation as the most vivid, original and tirelessly entertaining of diarists, and delight his army of admirers.”

A Testimony of Her Times: Based on Penelope Hind's Diaries and Correspondence 1787-1838 by Sarah Markham (£32.00)Publisher: Salisbury: Michael Russell — 1990Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Signed by the Author.[ISBN: 0859551741]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper sunned at the spine and onto the margins of both panels and now sealed in mylar. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Signed by the author, with dedication, on the half-title page — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. Contains: Black & white photographs;

From the cover: “Drawing on the family papers which were the source of her admirable John Loveday of Caversham, Sarah Markham now introduces the succeeding generation, a portrait based on the diaries and correspondence of one of John Loveday’s daughters, Penelope Hind. It is full of quiet domestic detail: Penelope spent several years of widowhood near Hungerford before becoming, in 1808, the wife of the vicar of Findon in Sussex. Most interesting — and a rarity in such contemporary accounts — is the closely observed relationship between the diarist and the children of servants and villagers (a relationship that Professor Antony Cox analyses in a postscript). There is new information on Penelope’s friendship with the statesman William Windham, and she also records, through cuttings and correspondence from friends and relations, news from the wider world -there are some excellent vignettes of court life and, in particular, an enjoyably robust account of meeting Lord Byron. The eyewitness experience of the agricultural riots of the 18305, recounted in detail, tempers nostalgia for the country idyll. The incidence of mishap and bereavement reminds us, too, that illness in those days took an immeasurably harsher toll. Sarah Markham has marshalled her material skilfully and her supporting research is, as ever, impeccable. Her book is fairly titled A Testimony of Her Times, because that, without the distortions of great position or extremes of fortunate or adverse circumstance, is exactly what it is.”

[First Edition: 1964] Illustrated by way of: Black & White Plates; Maps;

From the cover: “This is a book which rivals Arabian Sands in excellence. Wilfred Thesiger has again written a classic, a work of unique interest and value.

The book is about the tribes that live in the Marshes of Iraq, around the junction of the Tigris and Euphrates. This area, covering some 6,000 square miles, is now closed to travellers and no previous explorer has had any experience of it comparable to the author’s. Soon these marshes will probably be drained and a way of life which has lasted for thousands of years will disappear. Wilfred Thesiger lived among these people for eight years, and there is hardly a village, however small, in the Central Marshes that he has not visited. It is a landscape of islands, some of them floating, many of them man-made; of lakes and waterways; where the reed houses are of a unique and impressive architecture; where the economy of the inhabitants is based largely on their herds of water-buffalo. They fish, shoot wildfowl, and hunt the enormous and dangerous wild pigs that ravage their crops. Wilfred Thesiger, travelling from village to village, with his medicine boxes and his team of canoemen, knows these people and their way of life intimately.

There are times of excitement and hardship, accidents, pig hunts, blood feuds; there are episodes of tragedy and happiness, and moments of pure comedy. Not only does Wilfred Thesiger evoke with great beauty the landscape and its teeming wild life, but we come to know the people, many of them individually, whose life he shares, the sheikhs who are his friends, his canoemen and their families. Few travel books have described an area and its inhabitants with such knowledge, and in such interesting and informative detail.

In addition to maps, there are 110 superb photographs, taken by the author, which form an indispensable supplement to the text.

The Marsh Arabs confirms the opinions expressed of Arabian Sands, that, both as traveller and writer, Wilfred Thesiger is to be compared with Burton, Doughty and T. E. Lawrence.”

Life in Ancient Egypt by Eugen Strouhal (£26.00)Publisher: Cambridge University Press — 1992Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0521440939]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Chronological Tables; Colour Photographs; Maps [1];

From the cover: “There is a wealth of literature on the kings of ancient Egypt, on the history of their reigns, and on their temples and pyramids. But of the ordinary, hard-working people who left us such awe-inspiring monuments as well as beautiful everyday objects, our knowledge remains hazy. Happily there is plenty of evidence, physical as well as literary and artistic, on which the author of this rare insight into everyday life in ancient Egypt has been able to draw, offering us the fruits of a lifetime of tireless research and fieldwork. He charts the progress of the ancient Egyptian step by step from cradle to grave, from children’s games to adult entertainment, from courtship to marriage and sometimes to divorce. The position of women in society is discussed in detail, as is fashion and the care of the body. The author describes the work of farmers, fishermen, and hunters, of artisans and builders, artists and scribes, priests and healers. In the closing chapter we follow the ancient Egyptian on the arduous last journey to the gates of the other world.

Few studies of ancient Egypt cover so broad a scope. The text is complemented by many illustrations of artefacts, works of art, and scenes of life in ancient Egypt as recorded in tomb reliefs and paintings and on papyri. Many of Werner Forman’s superb photographs were taken especially for this volume in Egypt and in the great public and private collections.”

Victorian Britain and Ireland in Colour by Janice Anderson & Reinhard Schultz (£26.00)Publisher: Carlton — 2005Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1844425584]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Leans slightly otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: From the cover: “The Victorian age was one of expansion in many areas, none more so than that of JM travel. With the success of explorers worldwide people’s curiosity grew, and the advent of the railroad in Great Britain and Ireland, which at that time was part of the United Kingdom, meant that the general public could do their own exploring. Many parts of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales that had, at one time, seemed remote were now within relatively easy travelling distance.

This collection of unique polychrome colour photographs, which have never been seen before, captures many of the vistas that became so popular with Victorian holidaymakers -from the quaint and picturesque snapshots of Devon and Cornwall to the tranquillity of the Irish countryside via the beautiful coastline of Wales or the hustle and bustle of London, up to the broads of Norfolk and further north to the wild, heather-strewn hills and awe-inspiring lochs of Scotland.

Many of these sites are still highly popular holiday venues and with good reason, since for the most part they have been protected for historical or environmental reasons. What they share is an abundance of charm and character and, in the cases of those rural and coastal locations, a measure of, peace and tranquillity.

Accompanied by informative, and often thought-provoking captions, these pictures will transport the reader back to a time when the pace of life was, for all its new inventions, a little calmer and more leisurely. Victorian Britain & Ireland in Colour is a thoroughly engaging window on to a bygone age that will captivate readers.”

Arabia Felix from the Time of the Queen of Sheba: Eighth Century B. C. to First Century A. D. by Jean-Francois Breton (£22.00)Publisher: Notre Dame: University of Notre Dame Press — 1999Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0268020027]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper slightly faded at the spine otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Glossary; Black & White Plates; Maps; Plans;

From the cover: “Sheba, or Saba, is a region of high mountains and vast deserts situated in the southwest of the Arabian peninsula, in what is known today as Yemen.

The mysteries and riches of Sheba and its people enticed the likes of Alexander the Great, the Emperor Augustus, and the kings of Ethiopia and Byzantium. From the 8th century to the 1st century BC, the kingdom of Sheba dominated other realms in Southern Arabia, imposing its language, institutions and artistic forms throughout the region.

Japan by Michel Random & Loues Frederic (£22.00)Publisher: David & Charles — 1987Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0715390503]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper.

From the cover: “For us, said a leading Japanese businessman, Budo, Noh theatre, Kabuki are nourishment, for our soul is basically very ancient. This is why we can be modern or ultra-modern without losing our roots. Nothing in Japan is separate: the light flavour of Sake (rice wine), the taste of Sushi (raw fish), the respect that we pay to our traditions, the veneration we bear to our emperor, all these only make up one Whole. The difference between us and the West is that we have kept a centre, or what you call a soul. The centre is also the kernel. Without it, the fruit withers and dies. This book, created by Nebojsa Bato Tomasevic, is the latest publication in a distinguished series. Past titles include China, Tibet and India. Yugoslav by birth, internationalist by conviction, Tomasevic has travelled extensively in Japan speaking to representative figures in all spheres of activity. Employing French scholars, Japanese, English, Italian and Yugoslav photographers, Japanese expertise and his own personal experience, Tomasevic has assembled an informative and exciting report on this remarkable country. This book is indeed a product of international co-operation at its most effective.”

America: A Rediscovery by Lance Morrow (£20.00)Publisher: Robert Hale — 1987Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0709031866]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “From the Statue of Liberty to the Golden Gate Bridge, from the lights of Las Vegas to the Washington Monument, America is a landscape of the mind and spirit as well as a country of cities and towns, farms and highways, soil and rock. America is its history and its people, and all the hopes and dreams that have been brought to its shores.

This magnificent volume captures both the idea and the reality of the most powerful nation on earth. America’s diversity, its energy, its wild beauty and its excitement are shown here in over 170 full colour photographs. The accompanying text by noted journalist and author Lance Morrow explores America’s myths and history as well as evoking scenes that are uniquely American: the ranches of Texas, the skyscrapers of New York, the waters of the Florida Keys, the quiet of the small towns of Pennsylvania and Virginia. Morrow examines the country’s moments of pride and its periods of shame. He finds new meaning in the immigrant experience, in the importance of a small-town childhood, and in Texas humour. The photographs, taken by the country’s best photographers, highlight and enrich the themes of his writing.

The patriotism of a Fourth of July Parade, the peace of a lonely lighthouse, the garish glories of street art, and the wondrous variety of the people and the landscape — all these are in AMERICA for you to discover..”

Its richly interwoven tapestry of text, maps and illustrations brings sharply into focus our century’s main themes and underlying problems. Richard Overy’s compelling and analytical text takes the world from the pomp of Europe’s colonial heyday and the cataclysm of the First World War through the Great Depression, the Second World War and the Cold War to the uncertain stumblings of the New World Order. Special attention is paid to the themes and challenges which have faced us throughout the century — the environment, health, science, leisure and technology.

From the cover: “With improvements in communications bringing us into more rapid contact with distant lands, general interest has been aroused in the ways of life of their peoples. In a readable manner the author outlines recent developments in modem social anthropology, and demonstrates its uses in improving international relations. Most of the examples given are drawn from recent field-work, and do not appear in the usual textbooks; so far they have been available only in articles in periodicals. The author has much of interest to say on such controversial subjects as the brain capacities of different races, comparative codes of manners, and the ‘simple way of life of the savage’.”Notes: Size: 7¼" x 4¾".

My Warriors and I: Among the Samburu of Northern Kenya by Roger Stoakley (£17.50)Publisher: Scriptmate Editions — 1998Binding: Paperback Signed by the Author.[ISBN: 0951376691]Condition: Near Fine.Description: Signed by the author on the title page — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “Lturungen was crippled in childhood. A chance meeting brought Roger Stoakley into close contact with this young man and his people—one of the last warrior societies of Africa. Sharing their lifestyle he gained an insight into a remarkable way of life. His moving story of its struggle, bravery and holistic joy in a harsh landscape, is also explicit about a small boy’s circumcision ceremony, and follows new young warriors through the tough Ceremony Of The Arrows. The Samburu people occupy the parched lands of northern Kenya, still the scene of tribal warfare and subject to tight security. Fiercely independent pastoral-ists, they are scornful of Western culture, and have remained relatively unaffected by civilisation. Lturungen came to England for three months while he underwent an operation on his foot. Dressed in warrior clothes, he became a celebrity among local schoolchildren. The author is the former County Librarian of Somerset.”Notes: Size: C Format (8½" x 5¼"). 201 pages.

From the cover: “Seven hundred years of smuggling in Britain are covered in this unusual book on a little-known facet of history.

From the nefarious dealings in wool in medieval days, through the cloth frauds of Tudor times and the wholesale running of tea and spirits in the eighteenth century to the tobacco smuggling in the nineteenth, the story is enlivened with many anecdotes derived from historic documents, memoirs, and other sources.

The book reveals the corruption that used to pervade the Customs Service when even the highest officials could be bribed to turn a blind eye on the activities of smugglers; it tells too of the time when, in parts of England, the population of whole areas assisted in the concealment of contraband goods, and armed bands escorted convoys of smuggled tea and spirits from the coast to London, terrorising the countryside and fighting pitched battles with preventive officers and troops; and it describes the extraordinarily ingenious ways in which contraband goods have been concealed.

To the detailed account of contraband in Britain are added two exciting chapters in which the author glances at the world problems of smuggling in recent times: the traffic in opium with China, the slave traffic (‘black’ and ‘white’), the running of arms and liquor to primitive peoples (and the fantastic happenings during the period of Prohibition in the U. S. A. ), the trade in obscene publications, and the two best-organized rackets in international smuggling today — drugs and diamonds.

Contraband Cargoes is the fruit of widespread research, and makes an enthralling contribution to British social history.”

The Orenda by Joseph Boyden (£17.00)Publisher: London: Oneworld — 2013Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 9781780744353]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: From the cover: “1640s, THE NEW WORLD.

In the remote winter landscape a brutal massacre and the kidnapping of a young Iroquois girl violently re-ignites a deep rift between two tribes. The girl’s captor, Bird, is one of the Huron Nation’s great warriors and statesmen. Years have passed since the murder of his family and yet they are never far from his mind. In the girl, Snow Falls, he recognizes the ghost of his lost daughter, but as he fights for her heart and allegiance, small battles erupt into bigger wars as both tribes face a new, more dangerous threat from afar.

Travelling with the Huron is Christophe, a charismatic missionary who has found his calling among the tribe and devotes himself to learning and understanding their customs and language. An emissary from distant lands, he brings much more than his faith to this new world, with its natural beauty and riches.

As these three souls dance with each other through intricately woven acts of duplicity, their social, political and spiritual worlds collide — and a new nation rises from a world in flux.”
