Greig Fester: A Story of Reinsurance by Antony Brown (£44.00)Publisher: Granta Editions — 1996Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1857570332]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Jacket illustration: Map of the earthquake zones of the world illustrating the geography of catastrophes which form the basis of Greig Fester’s business. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Graphs; Tables; Maps to the endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “THE story of Greig Fester is the story of reinsurance — perhaps the most intriguing aspect of international insurance and the one most frequently involved in world news. Reinsurance is the means by which insurance companies insure themselves against the possibility of catastrophic losses. This is why the history of Greig Fester, one of the few Lloyd’s brokers to specialise in reinsurance, is often one of natural disasters ranging from floods and hurricanes to earthquakes. It follows the fortunes of the company formed 75 years ago by a remarkable Scots insurance man, and relates how it was later merged with a cosmopolitan firm whose European connections could hardly have been more in contrast.

Greig Fester: A Story of Reinsurance will, we believe, be a formidable addition to the growing library of books which guide the general reader through the mysterious and fascinating world of international insurance.”

India by Antonio Monroy (£27.00)Publisher: Orbis — 1985Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0856139467]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with the expected associated chafing to the dust wrapper. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “India, the world’s second most populous country, possesses an extraordinary diversity of peoples whose complex religious, cultural and linguistic divisions are lost in antiquity. But this huge subcontinent is distinguished by an intense religious consciousness which permeates the whole of life. Every aspect of Indian culture is rooted in powerful religious and philosophical ideas — whether Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jain, Muslim or Sikh; or the product of one of the many tribal and traditional cults still prevalent in village life.

This volume presents India as it is today, and discusses the history and geography of the land as it has influenced the development of myth, religion and language. India is a conjunction of contradictory elements where modern society is still influenced by the pressures of tribe and caste; where her art and architecture combine subtle metaphysics with an extraordinary sensuality and raw physical energy. This book celebrates, in words and pictures, the vigour and abundance of an age-old culture where traditions have been re-animated by the impetus of folklore, legend and imagination.

The brilliant colour photography of Antonio Martinelli and Roberto Meazza captures the events, places, and sensations of everyday India with sensitivity and sympathy. Antonio Monroy, who knows India and its culture well, has provided a text which describes and explains in detail the qualities which make India, its history, religion, society, architecture, even its cinema, unique amongst the world’s cultures. The result is a magnificent study of the subcontinent, both past and present.”

The National Geographic Society: 100 Years of Adventure and Discovery by C. D. B. [Courtlandt Dixon Barnes] Bryan (£27.00)Publisher: New York: Harry N. Abrams — 1994Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0810981351]Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper slightly faded at the spine with a crease to the head. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “For a century the National Geographic Society has been bringing to an audience of millions the thrilling world of adventure, discovery and natural wonders. Robert E. Peary’s determined, successful struggle to be first to reach the North Pole; Hiram Bingham’s exciting discovery of the mysterious lost city of the Incas, Machu Picchu; the awesome deadly eruption of the Mont Pelee volcano; the devastating San Francisco earthquake; Reinhold Messner’s superhuman solo climb to the summit of Mt. Everest — these are but a few of the spectacular events reported at first hand by the Society.

In 1888, in Washington, D. C. , thirty-three gentlemen met to consider the advisability of organizing a society for the increase and diffusion of geographical knowledge. From a membership of 165 at the time of its founding, the National Geographic Society has grown to number almost 11 million members in 170 of the 174 nations of the world.

In The National Geographic Society: 100 Years of Adventure and Discovery, author C. D. B. Bryan covers the entire history of the Geographic, focusing on the guiding personalities behind it — from Gardiner Greene Hubbard and Alexander Graham Bell to three generations of the Grosvenor family; he brings to life its flamboyant explorers and innovative photographers. In this celebration of the Society’s centennial, ten lively chapters of historical narrative alternate with ten special theme sections on subjects such as polar exploration, natural disasters, glorious expeditions, war and conflict, archaeology, and space, — and each of these chapters is jam-packed with dramatic pictorial material selected from the Society’s far-ranging archives. These superb photographs and illustrations form an assemblage of images that, along with Bryan’s absorbing text, recreates the National Geographic Society’s exciting legacy of science and adventure, one that mirrors America’s changing perception of itself and the world over the past one hundred years.”

Empires of the Indus: The Story of a River by Alice Albinia (£24.00)Publisher: London: John Murray — 2008Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 9780719560033]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Publishers review letter laid in. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Maps [1];

From the cover: “One of the largest rivers in the world, the Indus rises in the Tibetan mountains, flows west across northern India and south through Pakistan. For millennia it has been worshipped as a god; for centuries used as a tool of imperial expansion; today it is the cement of Pakistan’s fractious union.

Five thousand years ago, a string of sophisticated cities grew and traded on its banks. In the ruins of these elaborate metropolises, Sanskrit-speaking nomads explored the river, extolling its virtues in Indias most ancient text, the Rig-Veda. During the past two thousand years a series of invaders — Alexander the Great, Afghan Sultans, the British Raj — made conquering the Indus valley their quixotic mission. For the people of the river, meanwhile, the Indus valley became a nodal point on the Silk Road, a centre of Sufi pilgrimage and the birthplace of Sikhism.

Empires of the Indus follows the river upstream and back in time, taking the reader on a voyage through two thousand miles of geography and more than five millennia of history redolent with contemporary importance.”

Arabia Felix from the Time of the Queen of Sheba: Eighth Century B. C. to First Century A.

[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.

This book provides a detailed synthesis of this remote civilization, the uniqueness of the region’s geography and climate, and the major events that shaped its history. It offers valuable insights into the Sabeans’ daily life, their customs and religion, their relations with neighbouring civilizations, and their modes of commerce.”

Map of a Nation: A Biography of the Ordnance Survey by Rachel Hewitt (£20.50)Publisher: Granta — 2010Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 1847080987]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper slightly discoloured on the upper panel otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: 2nd Impression. [First Edition: Same Year] Maps to the endpapers. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “FROM THE SHETLAND ISLES in the furthest north-easterly reaches of Britain, to the Stilly Isles in the south-west, the Ordnance Survey has mapped every mile of the nation. Before it, Britain was represented by a mosaic of county and military surveys of variable accuracy, content and scale. But now each region possesses its own highly detailed map, whose pink and orange covers and beautiful contours are familiar to anyone who has rambled through the British countryside.

But the Ordnance Survey would not exist if it were not for the vision and determination of several extraordinary individuals over two hundred years ago. Map of a Nation tells the fascinating story of the map and the men who dreamt and drafted it, through the political revolutions, rebellions and unions that altered the nation’s shape and identity over the 18th and 19th centuries.

Rachel Hewitt brings to life the period and key individuals in a deliriously readable account of one of the great untold adventure stories, featuring brass theodolites being hauled up mountains, and exciting new cartographic techniques. Map of a Nation is written with great storytelling verve and impressive scholarship. It tells a fascinating tale of revolutions both scientific and political, and evokes the excitement of a nation coming into focus to itself for the first time.”

Charts of War: The Maps and Charts That Have Informed and Illustrated War At Sea by John Blake (£20.00)Publisher: London: Conway — 2006Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1844860310]Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper pulled at the head of the upper panel with two small nicks toward the top corner. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “Information is power, and in centuries past sea charts were guarded by both a ship’s navigator and the State, stretched on oak boards or rolled in leather cylindrical quivers, locked away. As the European nations began their territorial acquisition and contest in earnest, the information charts contained of harbour approaches, coastal landmarks and hazards, currents and tides, could give one side or another the advantage.

From the ships of small expeditionary fleets, which carried navigational charts, to the requirements of modern ships involved in combined operations, which need charts to include a whole range of information, John Blake has produced a fascinating, illustrated account of the role that charts have played in planning, preventing, conducting and recording war at sea. The selection not only includes charts depicting major battles and amphibious operations, but those drawn up for tactical and espionage purposes, for coastal defence and the positioning of forts along rivers and at the entrance to harbours.

Chapters run in chronological order, organized according to the overall political scene, but the main focus is on the development of chart making and surveying in relation to changing warfare techniques. Informative captions accompany each chart, setting them in historical context and providing illuminating details about the main protagonists and the chart makers and surveyors themselves. Taken from a range of international maritime archives, they include portolan charts of Spanish acquisitions in the New World; Francis Drake’s attack of Cadiz in 1587, known as ‘the singeing of the King of Spain’s beard’; the Dutch attack on Chatham in 1667 during the Second Anglo-Dutch War; a plan of Chesapeake Bay where British naval forces failed to relieve General Cornwallis during the American War of Independence; William Bligh’s chart of the Battle of Copenhagen in 1801; charts of the Battle of Jutland, one British, one German; and the operational chart drawn up before the D-Day landings at Omaha beach.”

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 continent has come to exert a deep fascination upon him — its mixture of peoples, its history, its politics, its civilisation and its varied geography and military history have come to explain each other in North America as they do nowhere else in the world. From the arrival of the Europeans m the sixteenth century to the final defeat of the native Americans in the nineteenth, climate and competition for the resources of nature explain why men fortified where they did, campaigned as they did and were battlefields where the control drawn to the battlefields where the control of the continent was decided.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

A History of Greece to the Death of Alexander the Great by J. B. Bury; Rusell Meiggs; (£14.00)Publisher: MacMillan — 1977Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0333154932]Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Notably rubbed at the outside edges of the cover and spine with fading to both wrappers. Leans. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Reprint of the 4th Edition. [First: 1900] Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The first edition of Bury’s famous book was published in 1900, on the eve of Sir Arthur Evans’s dramatic excavations at Cnossus. In the second edition (1913) Bury rewrote the first chapter in the light of the evidence from Crete. In the third edition (1951), prepared by Russell Meiggs, the progress of archaeology again demanded a rewriting of much of the first chapter, and changes were made in other chapters. By the early 1970s, however, so much new material had accumulated that it was decided to prepare a fourth edition. The publishers are fortunate to have been able to call again on Russell Meiggs. This revision (1975) is more complete than the last. However, although Bury’s text has been widely changed in the light of new work and the further sifting of evidence, great care has been taken to preserve the basic character of the original; in particular, no change has been made in the scale and emphasis of Bury’s History. The revised text is presented in a modern format. The original maps have been redrawn and new ones added, with the inclusion of a fold-out map at the end of the book. The illustrations have been revised and improved and the section of notes has been enlarged, with the addition of useful bibliographies.”Notes: Size: 9¾" x 7¼". 577 pages.

Why not her kinsfolk and neighbours, the Edomites, Moabites and Ammonites, for example?

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.”

The Escape of Alexei, Son of Tsar Nicholas II: What Happened the Night the Romanov Family Was Executed by Vadim Petrov, Igor Lysenko & Georgy Egorov (£12.50)Publisher: Harry N. Abrams — 1998Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0810932776]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Boards lightly spotted otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Maps; Genealogical Tables;

From the cover: “The Russian Romanov dynasty came to an abrupt end on the night of July 17, 1918, when the imperial family was executed by the Bolsheviks. Or did it? Compelling new evidence reveals that Tsarevich Alexei, the fourteen-year-old son of Nicholas II and Alexandra and heir to the Russian throne, escaped the bloodshed and was adopted by a peasant family.

Reconstructing the fascinating historic events of the Russian Revolution, The Escape of Alexei tells the horrifying story of the brutal execution, and the means by which the boy managed to escape death. Bungling by Bolshevik soldiers led to complete chaos: Young Alexei — wounded and unconscious — was still alive when he was loaded onto the back of a truck with the corpses of his murdered family. He fled into the woods and found his way to a nearby village. There his world turned upside down.

Russia’s heir to the throne grew up under the name of Vasily Filatov He became an apprentice shoemaker and eventually a high-school geography teacher.

In this extraordinary volume, three respected scientists provide a convincing, thorough account of how the executioners covered up the fact that the body of the heir to the throne was missing. Drawing on official records and documents from Russian archives and the grisly personal accounts of soldiers who took part in the execution, the authors offer compelling evidence that Alexei Romanov and Vasily Filatov were the same person.

Filatov died in 1988. Now his wife and children have brought his story to the world. Their intimate reminiscences of the remarkable man they knew as husband and father bring this astonishing tale to life. Personal photographs throughout the book illustrate the striking physical resemblances between members of the Romanov and Filatov families.”

Globalization: The Human Consequences by Zygmunt Bauman (£11.50)Publisher: Polity Press — 1999Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0745620132]Condition: Very Good. Upper wrapper slighty curled. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Description: From the cover: “‘Globalization’ is a word that is currently much in use. This book is an attempt to show that there is far more to globalization than its surface manifestations. Unpacking the social roots and social consequences of globalizing processes, this book tries to disperse some of the mist that surrounds the term.

Alongside the emerging planetary dimensions of business, finance, trade and information flow, a ‘localizing’, space-fixing process is set in motion. What appears as globalization for some means localization for many others; signalling new freedom for some, globalizing processes appear as uninvited and cruel fate for many others. Freedom to move, a scarce and unequally distributed commodity, quickly becomes the main stratifying factor of our times.

Neo-tribal and fundamentalist tendencies are as legitimate offspring of globalization as the widely acclaimed ‘hybridization’ of top culture — the culture at the globalized top. A particular reason to worry is the progressive breakdown in communication between the increasingly global and extra-territorial elites and ever more ‘localized’ majority. The bulk of the population, the ‘new middle class’, bears the brunt of these problems and suffers uncertainty, anxiety and fear as a result.

This book is a major contribution to the unfolding debate about globalization, and as such will be of interest to students and professionals in sociology, human geography and cultural issues..”

Our Undeveloped World by L. [Laurence] Dudley Stamp (£11.50)Publisher: Faber & Faber — 1953Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little faded. Edges of the text block lightly tanned, 2" closed tear to the foot of the lower panel at the join with the spine. Tanning also to the blanks and pastedowns. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “At a time when the English-speaking world is becoming increasingly aware of its responsibilities in world leadership, this important and stimulating book on the under-developed lands reaches some surprising but significant conclusions. It is based on a series of six lectures delivered by Dr. Stamp to an American audience as Pattern Foundation Visiting Professor at Indiana University. He shows conclusively that the most important under-developed lands are not in the tropics and uninhabited latitudes as we might expect; the hope for land development lies in the middle latitudes, in the United States, the Soviet Union, Canada, Australia, and the Argentine — countries already powerful and populated. Again, Dr. Stamp shows in startling fashion that while the population of such densely inhabited countries as India and China is increasing, the rate of increase in the English-speaking white race is Jour times as rapid as in the population of the world as a whole.

To meet the worldwide menace of hunger, Dr. Stamp advocates the removal of man-made barriers and more efficient utilization of our present lands. Above all, he urges such a world-wide survey of land resources as will lead to intensive cultivation of our rich lands and an understanding of native agricultural problems so different from our own.”

From the cover: “What is it that invests certain places with particular significance for an individual? What magic, or what associations, does a landscape or a building hold that sets it apart from others? For this anthology, the distinguished author Ronald Blythe has asked over forty writers to write about a place in the British Isles that has special meaning for them. The result is a richly evocative collection of essays and poems that gives us an insight into the susceptibilities of the authors as well as a greater appreciation of the scenery around us. The book is beautifully illustrated with water-colours, gouaches and photographs.”Notes: Illustrated by John Piper. Size: 9½" x 6¼". Green boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 238 pages.

The continent has come to exert a deep fascination upon him — its mixture of peoples, its history, its politics, its civilisation and its varied geography and military history have come to explain each other in North America as they do nowhere else in the world. From the arrival of the Europeans m the sixteenth century to the final defeat of the native Americans in the nineteenth, climate and competition for the resources of nature explain why men fortified where they did, campaigned as they did and were battlefields where the control drawn to the battlefields where the control of the continent was decided.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".
