Measurement of Responsibility: A Study of Work, Payment and Individual Capacity by Elliott Jaques (£33.00)Publisher: Tavistock Publications — 1956Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with several short tears, a little loss at the spine ends and a 1" closed tear to the head of the upper panel. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Small name sticker to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: From the cover: “THE MEASUREMENT OF RESPONSIBILITY presents perhaps the most funda mental approach yet achieved to the recurring individual and social stresses which disturb the industrial scene. Its theme is that one of the central factors underlying these disturbances is the absence of any objective and agreed method of assessing the re sponsibility carried by individuals at their work.

In the course of practical work by the author in collaboration with members of the Glacier Metal Com pany (an engineering concern), a re definition of the problem has emerged. What is experienced by individuals as level or weight or size of responsi bility has been observed to be con nected solely with the discretion they are required to exercise in doing their work. It has furthermore been dis covered that level of responsibility can be measured objectively and pre cisely by the maximum span of time during which an individual is expected to exercise discretion on his own account until his use of discretion is subjected to review.

By using this measurement — which he terms the time-span of discretion — Dr. Jaques has noted that individuals carrying the same maximum time-span in their work demand—quite independently — as a fair and just return for their work, precisely the same earnings and the same status, regardless of the type of work con cerned. He concludes from these findings that an unrecognized wage and salary structure is operated in tuitively in industry. But because it is unrecognized, departures from it are likely. And it is precisely such de partures which lead to trouble.

In the light of his findings, the author re-examines the meaning of work, of payment for work, and of the capacity of individuals to exercise discretion and discharge responsibility.

The methods described, and the results already obtained from their use, may indicate a route towards the resolution of some aspects of the industrial unrest and individual dis satisfaction with work which are such a crippling feature of modern industrial life. The book, in style as well as in content, is intended for economists, sociologists, political scientists, psychologists, and other social scientists — as well as industrial ists, trade unionists, government officials, and other administrators who are concerned with these problems.”

Swimming with Dr Johnson and Mrs Thrale: Sport, Health and Exercise in Eighteenth-Century England by Julia Allen (£20.50)Publisher: Cambridge: The Lutterworth Press — 2012Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 9780718892760]Condition: Very Good. Description: First in this, paperback, edition. Illustrated by way of: Portraits; Black & White Plates; Black & White Drawings;

From the cover: “In this well researched and highly readable exploration of the history of British sport, Julia Allen shows that our nation’s obsession with sport is no new phenomenon. Drawing extensively on contemporary writings, reports and journals, Allen introduces Dr Johnson and Mrs Thrale while exploring the medical theories upon which eighteenth-century notions about exercise were based. The role of the physician, the work of the surgeon, the social context in which exercise was held and an in-depth description of the state of sport at the time are given including the rules, specific health benefits and whether women were permitted to join in.

Casting a historian’s eye over swimming, dancing, running, boxing, riding and skating as well as providing biographies of those who took part, this book promises to keep alive the love of sport long after the buzz of the Olympics has died down.”

Silks, Soaks and Certainties by Bob Butchers (£19.50)Publisher: Blenheim Press — 2008Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 9781906302047]Condition: Very Good+.Description: First in this edition. Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover; “This light-hearted look at the racing scene will appeal to all who are racing ‘buffs’ and many who are not. The tale of a family whose links with racing have spanned more than a century is packed with many wonderfully evocative accounts of incidents and characters of yesteryear. Some of the activities would, to say the least, be frowned on today. Bob was the original Newsboy on the Daily Mirror and filled that post with distinction for almost 39 years. This, coupled with his family background, gave him a deep knowledge of what went on behind the scenes in racing and have provided him with a fund of stories which he shares with us in this book.”Notes: Size: Trade Paperback (9¼" x 6"). 311 pages.

Yoga For You: A Step-by-step Guide to Yoga At Home For Everybody by Tara Fraser (£19.00)Publisher: Duncan Baird Publishers — 2001Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1903296102]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper pulled at the head of the upper panel otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Diagrams;

From the cover: “Yoga for You is a complete illustrated practical guide that reflects some of the most important developments in modern teaching — the release of pent-up stress from busy lives, the emphasis on physical comfort and safety (working within your own abilities rather than forcing yourself into demanding postures), and the holistic approach, which combines yoga with an appropriate lifestyle, especially with regard to diet and meditation.

Whatever your level of fitness and flexibility, Yoga for You is designed to meet your needs — whether you are a complete beginner or already have experience from classes.

More than 200 step-by-step colour photographs take you through the essential asanas (postures) and sequences. The author explains the essentials in plain, simple language. Special "boxes" suggest how beginners can adapt the classic postures to make them easier to perform — while more experienced students are shown how to progress to more challenging asanas as they build up their skills.

The practical core of the book is complemented by coverage of yoga’s traditional physiological, philosophical and spiritual context, and its roots in ancient India. The idea that the body has its own energy pathways and centres in the form of nadis and chakras is explored in a way that is clear and inspiring to Western readers.

Specific topics addressed include: the different types of yoga; finding and working with a teacher; how to start practising yoga at home; posture sequences; doing yoga with a partner; and learning to meditate.

Whatever your lifestyle, time pressures, beliefs, or levels of flexibility and fitness, Yoga for You takes you step by step along the path to inner and outer calm.”

Fate and Prediction: An Historical Compendium of Astrology Palmistry and Tarot by Fred Gettings (£18.50)Publisher: Ferndale — 1980Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0905746082]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and the top corners of the boards with a little wear to the dust wrapper as a result. Gently faded at the spine. Book plate to the pastedown. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs [775]; Facsimiles; Colour Photographs [125]; Diagrams; Maps;

From the cover: “This unique book is divided into three distinct sections containing comprehensive guides to the Zodiac, the Tarot and Palmistry, subjects that continue to exercise a profound fascination for millions of people.

Much of the current interest in the occult reaches little deeper than the horoscopes in popular newspapers and magazines, but beneath mere curiosity lies a deep and persistent urge to make sense of man’s life and his relation to the universe.

Modern science, though a valuable tool in understanding the physical world, has failed to satisfy this urge: it is still unable to unravel the depths of man’s subconscious or reveal the forces that shape his character.

All those willing to go beyond the popular image of horoscopes, will find here a fresh approach to traditional topics together with the essential balance of the historical perspective, will be fascinated by the unfolding of the mysteries of astrological science.

Superb colour plates appear throughout, with hundreds of black and white illustrations..”

How I Play Golf by Tiger Woods with the editors of Golf Digest (£18.50)Publisher: Little, Brown & Co. — 2001Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0316643696]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs [Some Fold-Out]; Diagrams;

From the cover: “The youngest Masters champion ever. The first person since 1953 to win three majors in one year. The fifth — and youngest — golfer to complete a career grand slam. There is, simply, no one who can match the achievements of Tiger Woods. He will win more majors than Arnold Palmer and me combined, claimed Jack Nicklaus and, the frightening thing is, he’s probably right. For Tiger Woods is more than just the best golfer in the world today: he is the most complete player of his era.

Now, in How I Play Golf, Tiger allows us the inside track into his tactics and techniques, and explains what makes his golf ‘tick’. Whether you are an absolute beginner, an enthusiastic amateur, or one of Tiger’s fellow professionals, this book is the essential guide to how to understand — and improve — your game.

Tiger takes his game apart in the same way as he does the field on the back nine on a championship Sunday, he starts where other golfing books end: on the putting green. From there he moves to building a swing to last, sand play, iron play, fairway woods and the driver. There are also chapters on golf psychology, how to break those bad habits and Tiger’s suggested diet and exercise routines.

Beautifully designed and lavishly illustrated, Have I Play Golf is the ultimate golf book from the greatest golfer in the world. From sorting out your swing plane to bouncing the ball off the face of your sand wedge (and looking cool doing it), Tiger tells you everything you need to know to make you a better golfer.”

Association Football in Victorian England: A History of the Game from 1863 to 1900 by Philip Gibbons (£17.00)Publisher: Leicestershire: Upfront Publishing — 2002Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 1844260356]Condition: Very Good. Description: 2nd printing. [First Published: Minverva Press, 2001] Illustrated by way of: Appendices [4]; Black & White Photographs; Tables;

From the cover: “Prior to the 1870s, Association Football tended to be enjoyed as a form of exercise at public schools or a game between friends in a local park. However, with the administrative skills of the likes of Charles Alcock, Francis Marindin, Arthur Kinnaird and William McGregor, the game grew to such an extent that it became an important part in the lives of both players and spectators as the century reached its end.

The history of the early clubs, international games, as well as the growth of the professional clubs, are all encompassed in this book, including the likes of Aston Villa, Manchester United and Liverpool, when they started out as struggling little clubs.”

From the cover: “Mention the name Bill Phillips to any of the people he’s helped transform, and you will see their faces light up with appreciation and respect. These people include:

  • Hundreds of thousands of men and women who read his magazine for guidance and straightforward information about exercise, nutrition, and living with strength.
  • Elite professional athletes — among them John Elway, Karl Malone, Mike Piazza, and Terrell Davis-who have turned to Phillips for clear-cut information to enhance their energy and performance.
  • People once plagued by obesity, alcoholism, and life-threatening ailments who accepted a personal challenge from Bill Phillips and, with his help, have regained control of their bodies and lives.
When you begin to apply the information in this book, you will be proving to yourself that astounding changes are within your grasp too. And, you will discover Body-for-Life is much more than a book about physical fitness — it’s a gateway to a new and better life — a life of rewarding and fulfilling moments, perhaps more spectacular than you’ve ever dared to dream before.

Within 12 weeks, you too are going to know — not believe, but know — that the transformation you’ve created with your body is merely an example of the power you have to transform everything else in your world.”

Francis Warner's Poetry: A Critical Assessment by Glyn Pursglove (£11.50)Publisher: Colin Smythe — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0861402715]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges.Description: From the cover: “The poetry of Francis Warner is unlike that of any of his contemporaries in its blend of passion and scholarship. It is the work of a mind steeped in the great traditions of poetry — work that is learned and allusive, but simultaneously intense in its lyricism.

Glyn Pursglove, author of an earlier study of Warner’s plays Francis Warner and Tradition, provides a detailed account of this fascinating body of work, demon strating both its indebtedness to tradition and its profound originality. In a manner both scholarly and sensitive he clarifies the complex craftsmanship of Warner’s major poems and demonstrates the extraordinary formal inventiveness which characterizes so much of his work.

Central to Francis Warner’s achieve ment as a lyrical poet are several remarkable sequences of love poems. These are here afforded a poem-by-poem examination so that readers will find their pleasure in them enhanced by these meticulous and lively studies.

For all his attention to the detail of the poems, Glyn Pursglove does not neglect the larger themes that give continuity to Warner’s work. The reaffirmation of biblical and classical concepts of love — not just as a scholarly exercise but felt in the blood — is at the heart of all of his work as a poet and as a dramatist. It was perhaps inevitable that a poet so steeped in the lyrical forms of the Renaissance (the canzone, the madrigal, and above all the sonnet) should eventually turn his atten tion to Verse Drama. This study closes fittingly with two lengthy chapters de voted to Warner’s verse plays Moving Reflections and Living Creation, theatrical and poetic explorations of love and creativity set in the age of the Gospels, and Renaissance Florence.”

Dustwrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Life at the Village Voice. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the flap: “The Village voice is the prototype of the antiestablishment, underground newspaper (now come very much aboveground), the most successful publication of its kind, the most famous of its kind, and probably the most passionately discussed publication in the United States. But it is not quite what it set out to be when it began publication in 1955. Then it was poor, radical, idealistic, and a haven for the idiosyncratic writer. In time it became rich, bourgeois, cynical, and a destroyer of some very good writers. And this is the story of life at the Voice, about what happens when the radical turns bourgeois, about the exploitation of writers, particularly women writers, and about the subtly brutal exercise of power by those who pretend to disdain power.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

DJ slightly ruffled at the edges.Description: From the cover: “Allergies have become something of an obsession in the 1990s: press reports talk of ‘an allergy to life’; and scientists tell that the extraordinary increase in allergy cases over the last century can be put down to environmental pollution as a result of the increasing industrialization of society. This book shows allergy sufferers that there are other ways to reduce the risk of provoking an allergic response and of treating one if it occurs. First, it cuts through the jargon, using clear no-nonsense language to explain what allergies are and what causes them, before discussing the pros and cons of conventional medical treatment. Then it discusses the various types of allergy, from food allergies to allergic skin conditions, with cross-references to the various types of natural treatment that follow. Next the book shows how natural remedies — from herbal medicines, elimination diets and homeopathy to stress-management techniques — can help by both alleviating the symptoms of an allergic response and prevent one from occurring.”Notes: Size: 9¾" x 7".

The Christian Belief in God: In Relation to Religion and Philosophy by Alfred E. [Ernest] Garvie (£10.50)Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton — UndatedBinding: Hardback Condition: Poor. A copy for reading rather than admiring, generally shabby but text complete and acceptable. Heavily faded at the spine. Tanning to the blanks. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: Presumed 1st Edition circa 1933. From the preface: “This volume is the companion to the two books already published, The Christian Doctrine of the Godhead (1925) and The Christian Ideal for Human Society (1930). These dealt with Christian dogmatics and ethics; this deals with Christian apologetics. The best defence of the Christian faith and the Christian life is the exposition of the truth concerning them ; this is their apology. As I have conceived apologetics in this volume, its task is to relate the Christian religion to religions generally, as the affirmation of what truth they contain, and to relate this affirmation to man’s other personal interests and activities for such confirmation as these may offer. While faith is the organ of apprehension, appreciation, and acceptance of the object of religion — God, yet as an exercise of human personality it must not be isolated from, but related to, all that has value for man. These three volumes, of which the last in time should be regarded as the first in order, are an attempt at a Systematic, or what I prefer to call it, Constructive Theology, not common in the English language.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

Boards slightly sunned at the margins. Text bright and tight. A nice copy.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs and diagrams. From the cover: “ore and more people today are choosing to take greater responsibility for their own health rather .than relying on the doctor to step in with a cure when something goes wrong. We now recognise that we can influence our health by making an improvement in lifestyle — a better diet, more exercise and reduced stress. People are also becoming increasingly aware that there are other healing methods — some new, others very ancient — that can help to prevent illness or be used as a complement to orthodox medicine. The series Health and Healing the Natural Way will help you to make your own health choices by giving you clear, comprehensive, straightforward and encouraging information and advice about methods of improving your health. The series explains the many different natural therapies now available — aromatherapy, herbalism, acupressure and many others — and the circumstances in which they may be of benefit when used in conjunction with conventional medicine.

The approach of the healing power of food is to emphasise the direct medicinal effects that can be achieved through food. It explains the general principles of healthy eating, how diet relates to disease and exactly how the active components of food work. The main thrust of the book, however, is to give clear, practical guidelines on what and how to eat to relieve a wide variety of health problems. the healing power of food reflects the growing trend to bring alternative therapies and mainstream medicine together. The book is not about challenging orthodox medical practice, rather the emphasis is on balance. To this end the benefits of individual foods are presented within the context of a healthy, complete and balanced diet.”
