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".

A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Top edge of the text block tanned. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs;

From the cover: “Here in one volume you will find a complete guide to the literature of the English-speaking world for the general reader and the student.

The Cambridge Guide provides easy reference to the literature of Great Britain and Ireland, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, the West Indies and Nigeria — to every part of the English-speaking world which contributed to the great treasure-house of poetry, fiction, drama, philosophy and satire which is one of the lasting achievements of Western civilization.

Arranged in alphabetical order and containing approximately 1,000,000 words of text, the entries range from the beginnings of English literature in the 6-7th centuries, when vernacular speech in the British Isles became a written language, to the present day.

The reader will find brief biographies of authors, descriptions of and comments on their major works, and notes on the outstanding characters created by poets, playwrights and novelists. In addition there are essays on The English Language by Barbara M. H. Strang and The Bible in English by C. H. Sisson.

The enquiring reader and student will find articles on a wide range of subjects covering literary forms such as the Metrical Romances, surveying writers with a common theme like the Metaphysical Poets, explaining important religious writings such as the Marprelate pamphlets and historical events, such as the closure of the playhouses, which crucially affected the literature of the time. (Historical figures whose influence on English literature requires recognition — King Alfred, Thomas Cranmer, Sir Walter Raleigh, Benjamin Franklin among them -are also included. )

The book is illustrated with more than 300 carefully selected black and white pictures which bring to life the great literary figures of the past and the age in which they lived.”

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.”

The World Encyclopedia of Locomotives: A Complete Guide to the World's Most Fabulous Locomotives by Colin Garratt (£18.50)Publisher: Lorenz — 1997Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 1859674550]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges. Leans slightly. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Later Printing. Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “Since the birth of the railroads in the early Industrial Age, people across the world have been fascinated by the locomotive as an enduring symbol of the advance of technology and as a powerful means of transport. From the early beginnings of steam power to today’s awe-inspiring high-speed passenger trains, The World Encyclopedia of Locomotives spans nearly two centuries of locomotive development worldwide in an easy-to-use format that will appeal to every railway enthusiast.

Divided into three sections, the book is organized chronologically, documenting developments and innovations in a concise and authoritative text.

Part One — The Birth of the Railways charts the very beginnings of locomotive design up to 1900. Starting with the British locomotives of the 1830s and the Battle of the Gauges, we move on to the early North American freight trains and the great building schools across the world.

Part Two — The Golden Age of Steam details the early British innovations in steam; the American Mikados, Shays, Switchers and Record Breakers; the early Canadian freight trains; European mountain power; and the enduring steam locomotives of India and Latin America — many of which were in use until recently.

Part Three — The 1950s to the Present Day explains the crossover from steam to diesel and electric. It looks at how these changes transformed the locomotive throughout the world into a superior passenger and freight pulling power, making it the supreme form of transport. Bringing us to the present day, this last section highlights the latest developments in world-class locomotive technology, including Europe’s Eurostar and the Japanese bullet train.

Written by world experts in the field and illustrated with over 700 photographs and artwork, The World Encyclopedia of Locomotives is an exhaustive reference work that takes an illuminating glance at a technology that was pivotal in the development of the modern world.”

Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “The Illustrated Encyclopedia Of Military Insignia is a comprehensive, illustrated guide to the insignia of the world’s major armed forces in the twentieth century. It covers the badges of the armies, navies, air forces, special forces and paramilitary formations from World Wars I and II to the present day.

As with many other objects used by our predecessors, badges are historical symbols which identify a group or nation and represent the taste and the technological limits of those who used them. The history of military insignia is explored, in a 64-page introduction, from their early beginnings in the days of chivalry to their application in modern military history.

The main part of the book is an A-Z directory of every aspect of insignia, from aigrettes to wings. Organized by country, each section covers shoulder patches, proficiency badges, skill-at-arms badges, and badges of rank — from pips and stars to trouser seams and helmet markings. For each type there are details of its purpose, forces in which it was introduced, methods of wear, dates of service, and information relating to the national variations.

Full-colour illustrations of rare badges and an extensive bibliography with references throughout the text make The Illustrated Encyclopedia Of Military Insignia a must for the collector, the military historian, the researcher and the general military reader.”

How did Frank Epperson accidentally invent the first ice lolly?

Who queued all night to make sure he got Britain’s first number plate, ‘A1’?

The Book of Firsts describes the first instance of something happening. It is a painstakingly researched encyclopaedia of ground-breaking innovations and achievements. It provides the dates, the details and the stories of the remarkable minds and personalities behind humankind’s greatest milestones. It is packed with facts, photographs and pictures. As the story of each first unfolds, tales of other firsts that were made possible by this ‘first first’ are told.

The book covers technical innovations, human endeavours, sporting greats, political milestones, cultural breakthroughs, medical achievements, and food and drink. Each story will delight and amaze, describing and illustrating firsts ranging from the genuinely important (the first heart transplant) to the trivia beloved of quiz shows and dinner parties — the first item to be sold using a bar code was a packet of Wrigley’s chewing gum, sold at 08.01 on 26th June 1974 in Ohio.”

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.”

Sea Battles: A Reference Guide by Michael Sanderson (£10.50)Publisher: Newton Abbot, London & Vancouver: David & Charles — 1975Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0715366483]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper faded at the spine otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: 1st Cheap Edition, includes promotional wrap around band. Jacket illustration: The Four Days' Battle, 1-4 June 1666 - oil painting by Pieter Cornelis Soest. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Plates; Maps;

From the cover: “This is a concise account of the principal sea battles of history, taking us through some 2,000 years from the Graeco-Persian Wars in 499-448 BC to the end of the Second World War. The number of sea battles throughout history is obviously so large that the book has been limited, with a few exceptions, to those battles fought between considerable forces in the open sea. Even so, there are accounts of over 250 battles arranged in alphabetical order and placed in the context of the wars to which they belong and other engagements during the same period. But although facts predominate, we cannot fail to ‘feel’ the atmosphere and excitement of some of these dramatic conflicts — the disastrous disgrace experienced by Mark Antony as he failed, along with Cleopatra, to prevent Octavian gaining access to the East and its riches; the delight of the English as their nimble ships worried at the heels of the Armada like terriers whilst it proceeded slowly up Channel; the satisfaction and joy felt by the British fleet, and transmitted to a demoralised nation at home, after the resounding victory at Cape St Vincent in which it defeated a Spanish force twice its size through skill, efficiency and the daring tactics of Nelson.

Designed as a reference guide to readers whose interest in the subject has been awakened and who require a short narrative of each event, the main text is supported by numerous illustrations, sketch maps and plans. As a preface to the book there is a valuable chronological table of sea battles.”

The world’s golf courses are covered in similarly accurate detail. Their setting and architecture provide the often glorious background to the events they host -and again the photographs speak louder than words.

The major golfing awards, championships and associations are also discussed, as is a brief history of the game in Europe and the Americas.

In writing this book, I have spent many hours talking with lifers and they all seem to have the same look in their eyes, a look of despair and regret, a look that cries out: ‘If only’. They have been sentenced to life imprisonment. Some will never see the light of day again. They are all killers. They trust nobody. But in this remarkable book they tell Kate Kray everything. When Kate married gangster Ronnie Kray, he introduced her to some of the most feared and deadly criminals Britain has ever known. She persuaded them to open their hearts to her and talk about their crimes, their fears and their dreams. The result is a compelling book that gives an amazing insight into the minds of Britain’s most wanted criminals, and the shadowy underworld from which they come.”Notes: Size: A Format (7" x 4½"). 243 pages.
