The Illustrated Encyclopedia Of Commercial Aircraft by Editor-in-Chief Bill Gunston (£27.00)Publisher: Windward — 1980Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0711200602]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper and a small scuff to the upper panel. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. 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.”

The Illustrated Encyclopedia Of Myths & Legends by Arthur Cotterell (£25.00)Publisher: Book Club Associates — 1992Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.Description: Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “Myths and legends are not merely curiosities from the past. These age-old stories from many cultures and traditions express poetry and power to which people continue to respond. The endlessly diverse body of world mythology is increasingly seen as a living link to the beginnings of our attempts to understand the natural world, and how human communities fit into its scheme. This is a new and comprehensive guide to its subject which includes individual entries for more than 1250 characters of myths and legends from 18 different cultural traditions around the world. Enhanced with a wealth of colour illustrations, line drawings and photographs, the book explores the historical, social and geographical reasons for the differences between the traditions, as well as identifying the universal human themes — from love and fertility to war and death — that bind them together. Every important myth and legend earns a place in these pages, along with many less well-known — but equally fascinating — stories specially selected for this volume. Meticulously researched, beautifully illustrated and produced, The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Myths and Legends is a major work of reference for everyone interested in this unique world heritage of human experience and imagination.”Notes: Size: 11¾" x 9¼".

The Wycliffe Historical Geography Of Bible Lands by Charles F. Pfeiffer & Dr. Howard F. Vos (£20.00)Publisher: Moody Press — 1970Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with heavier fading to the spine and fraying starting at the spine ends and corners. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Book shop stamp to the pastedown. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps; Plans;

From the cover: “A survey of the history and geography of all the Bible lands in one volume is long overdue. Numerous books have been written on Palestine, but few have recognized that such widely separated places as Iran, Egypt, Greece and even Italy also provided a geographical stage on which the biblical drama was enacted. In recent years Bible dictionaries, encyclopaedias and atlases have been published in increasing numbers. Some of these have provided information on all the Bible lands, but their approach has been either topical or very largely geographical.

The writers of the present volume have sought to bring together historical, geographical, biblical and archaeological material on all ten areas of the Near Eastern and Mediterranean world that might properly be called “Bible lands”. Separate chapters deal with Mesopotamia, Egypt, Palestine, Phoenicia, Syria, Biblical Iran, Cyprus, Asia Minor, Greece and Italy.

Drs. Pfeiffer and Vos spent seven years on the planning and writing of this major contribution to biblical scholarship. Both men have travelled extensively in the countries about which they have written. Their work reflects a thorough knowledge of Bible lands, the archaeology and history of the Near East, and the Bible itself on which their work rests.

The Wycliffe Historical Geography of Bible Lands is an invaluable reference and study tool. The wealth of history and geography added to significant information concerning national customs, aspirations, and religious beliefs, the whole presented in a warm, clear, forceful style, makes this volume a significant contribution to an important area of knowledge. An unusually useful and entertaining reference work for pastors, students, schools and libraries, and for laymen who seek a clearer understanding of God’s inspired Word.”

Devon & Cornwall by Denys Kay-Robinson (£10.50)Publisher: John Bartholomew & Son — 1977Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0702810142]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight but a little musty.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. 8pp. Of maps to the rear. From the cover: “Devon and Cornwall are challenging subjects to write about. Many English counties inspire strong loyalties and attachments, but few produce a kind of patriotic emotion, something often found amongst those who love Devon or Cornwall. The ‘or’ is deliberate: both counties can of course be admired, or enjoyed, and appreciated, but perhaps deeper feelings cannot easily be shared between them: Devon and Cornwall are firmly and decidedly different. There are, it must be added, also differences between each county — a glance at a geological map hints at some of these variations (in building materials as well as in landscape) — but the Tamar, for most of its length the boundary between the two counties, is an emotional, psychological, as well as physical, divide. The problems involved in writing about Devon and Cornwall in one volume are considerable; but the contrasts and — where they exist — the similarities are valuable evidence in any assessment and are a strong justification for such a method of working. As in other volumes in this series, the principle followed has been that places in the gazetteer are included solely for their interest, regardless of their ‘importance’ or familiarity.

Devon and Cornwall has seven pages of road maps, a geological map, three town plans (Exeter, Plymouth, Torquay), over 100 black-and-white half-tones, and four colour plates.”

Longman Companion to Twentieth Century Literature by A. C. [Alfred Charles] Ward (£10.50)Publisher: Longman — 1970Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0582328039]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges. Price Clipped. Errata slip pasted to the reverse of the title page. Edges of the text block lightly tanned.Description: From the cover: “This Companion is designed as much for personal possession as a guide to home reading as for consultation in schools and colleges, public and institutional libraries, offices, and by journalists and other professional workers.

Arranged alphabetically throughout and fully cross-referenced, the contents comprise:
•Biographical and bibliographical entries on the great and many lesser writers of the present century, mainly English and Scottish but including also those Commonwealth (Australian, Canadian, Caribbean, New Zealand), African, American, French, German, Spanish, and Russian writers with an international reputation whose books have appeared in English editions.
• Articles on literary categories: Autobiography, Biography, Criticism, Drama, Essays, Fiction, Poetry. Summaries of outstanding novels, plays, and other literary works.
• Fictional characters described and related to the books or plays in which they appear. Authors’ pseudonyms.
• Literary terms, topical phrases, and references and allusions to persons, institutions, and matters likely to arouse curiosity in the course of general reading.
• Advice for authors on the preparation and publication of manuscripts.
• Articles on Censorship, Copyright, Literary Societies, and other organizations.
• Each biographical entry appears under the writer’s pseudonym or preferred name, immediately followed by the full birthname and cross-referenced under the surname, thus enabling any author to be traced quickly in library and other catalogues.

Many authors are included whose works have given widespread pleasure, as well as those intellectually exacting and academically approved, and a few exceptions are made to the principle that only authors who lived into the present century qualify for inclusion. For example, though Gerard Manley Hopkins died in 1889 his work is of twentieth century adoption. Where an author’s works were substantially divided between this century and the last, only those published since 1900/1901 are included: Thomas Hardy’s poetry is noted but not his fiction, and only the final novels of Henry James. A few isolated works of earlier date appear if they have some topical interest.”
