Gently bruised at head & tail of spine and corners. Edges of the textblock lightly tanned.Description: 2nd Edition.

This designation refers especially to the character of its literature, to its adoption of classical models for its own style of expression; but it will bear a wider signification. An attempt will be made in the following pages to look at this period from the biographical point of view, by taking several outstanding groups of statesmen and politicians and certain other characteristic types.”Notes: Size: 8" x 5½".

Second World War: New Edition by Martin Gilbert (£20.00)Publisher: Orion — 2003Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 1842122622]Condition: Very Good. Light reading creases to the slightly bowed spine. Leans slightly. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: A Later Printing. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “The Second World War was the most destructive human conflict in history. Forty million people died during the 2,174 days from Germany’s attack on Poland in September 1939 to the surrender of Japan in August 1945.

Only one historian, Martin Gilbert, has the scholarship and breadth of vision to tell the story as it ought to be told. In this, the first total history of a global war, Martin Gilbert weaves together all its aspects — political, diplomatic, military and civilian. From week to week, month to month and year to year, the terrible progress of the juggernaut of death is charted. Martin Gilbert’s purpose is to show what happened, not from the point of view of any one of the warring nations but from a global perspective. In this he is triumphantly successful. Whether Gilbert is telling of the magnificent defence of Stalingrad or the endurance of London in the Blitz, no reader can fail to discover a new vision of what the Second World War meant for those who fought and suffered, and of its legacy for us today.”

The Pope's Maestro by Sir Gilbert Levine (£19.00)Publisher: Jossey-Bass — 2010Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 9780470490655]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Includes the unopened CD-Rom to the rear pastedown. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “The Pope’s Maestro tells the inspirational story of a most improbable friendship between the American conductor Sir Gilbert Levine and His Holiness Pope John Paul II. Together they collaborated closely, over a period of more than seventeen years, using music to heal centuries-old religious wounds.

Maestro Levine created and conducted a series of ground-breaking, internationally broadcast concerts. These musical events brought artistic form to Pope John Paul II’s fervent wish to forge an historic bridge first between the Roman Catholic Church and the Jewish people, and then, after 9/11, with the Muslim world as well. These efforts culminated in the Papal Concert to Commemorate the Holocaust in 1994 and the Papal Concert of Reconciliation in 2004.

During his years as Music Director of the Krakow Philharmonic, Sir Gilbert had an insider’s view of Eastern Europe’s inexorable journey from Communism to freedom. And in the years following, he experienced the world of Pope John Paul in a way few lay people, and even fewer Jews, have ever been honored to do. That work, paradoxically enough, deepened Sir Gilbert’s own Jewish belief and practice.

The Pope’s Maestro tells the story of the compelling musical and spiritual journey of two men of different faiths who found in music the power to foster peace and unity in a profoundly divided world.”

An Unfinished Autobiography; With Contributions By His Friends by Gilbert Murray (£13.00)Publisher: George Allen & Unwin — 1960Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and slightly faded. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Portrait to the frontispiece;

From the cover: “When Gilbert Murray died in 1957, England lost its most famous Greek scholar; his 91 years had spanned and influenced a whole epoch of our cultural life, while his manifold interests, his contribution to the cause of international peace and intellectual co-operation, established him as one of the most impressive public figures of our time. His friendships were very wide and he was in contact with very many of his great contemporaries.

He left behind him this autobiographical fragment of astonishing charm, which tells of his boyhood in Australia in the mid-nineteenth century, of his life as an undergraduate at Oxford and of his early teaching days. To this have been added some Notes (Jean Smith) from his correspondence now in the Bodleian Library carrying the outline to 1957; and contributions to supplement the story of his life: The Teacher of Greek (Isobel Henderson), The Theatre and Gilbert Murray (Sybil Thorndike and Lewis Casson), Gilbert Murray and the League of Nations (Salvador de Madariaga), followed by Murray’s own account of the Committee for Intellectual Co-operation, and Bertrand Russell’s memories of A Fifty-Six Year Friendship. Two samples of Gilbert Murray’s Greek composition are appended.”

All had been going well at the sleepy hill station of Vigatpore, Ghote’s temporary command, but the events of one terrible night — a night he can’t forget — now threaten to ruin his life. It was quite without warning that his long-time hero, “Tiger” Kelkar, had descended on the station to make a formal inspection. Suddenly, to his horror, Ghote found himself unwittingly caught up in trying to cover up an accident — an accident which became a murder. Now, Ghote is in the extraordinary position of being the accused in an inquiry set up to elicit the truth about the fateful turn of events that night. Torn between loyalty to a superior officer and loyalty to the forces of law and order he represents, Ghote must face the most difficult test of his career.”Notes: Jacket designed by Neil Stuart.

Winston Churchill: The Wilderness Years by Martin Gilbert (£11.50)Publisher: Macmillan — 1981Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0333325648]Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Heavily faded at the spine of the dust wrapper otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Black & White Drawings;

From the cover: “This is the story — published in association with the ITV series of the same name — of the ten remarkable years up to the Second World War during which Churchill remained alone and abused in the political wilderness.

In 1928 Churchill was at the height of his career. He was Chancellor of the Exchequer and when he spoke in the House of Commons MPs of every party flocked to hear his oratory. The leadership of the all-powerful Conservative party seemed within his grasp. A year later, however, all had changed. The Conservatives themselves were defeated, and out of office Churchill found himself at odds with the leadership, especially over the future of India. When the National Government was formed in 1931 Churchill was not asked to join it.

Thereafter, though out on his own, Churchill’s acute political sense, foresight and courage were undiminished. Fed with secret inside information by a small, brave band of men — some of them risking their careers to help him -Churchill consistently warned of the Nazi danger, even before the rise of Hitler. And once Hitler came to power, he stepped up his attacks on Britain’s failure to rearm. His message was belittled by the Government, which fought him at every turn, even refusing him the right to broadcast. But Churchill never gave up. Despite all the Government’s efforts, and as a result of Churchill’s courage and perseverance, the British public came to realize the truth of his warnings; the bond was formed that was to be so vital in the years that followed, when Britain and Churchill stood together but alone.”

They prove the truth of the old adage that cricket isn’t only a game but also an institution. Each of the contributors deals with familiar subjects in his own uniquely stimulating way. John Arlott examines not only the history and sociology of cricket, but also contributes a short essay on its future. Fred 1man, in his pen-portraits of the gallery of great players of his time provides a living context for Arlott’s reflections and assessments.

The anthology, edited by Gilbert Phelps, complements the other contributions as well as providing entertainment. The passages have been chosen not only for their literary merits—they are also funny, intriguing and provocative. Arlott and 1man on Cricket is a book all lovers of cricket will savour — and return to again and again. “

Lewis & Sybil by John Casson (£10.50)Publisher: Collins — 1972Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good+ — in Good Dustwrapper. Edges of the dustwrapper frayed, faded at the spine. Price Clipped. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Leans slightly. Edges of the textblock lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The lifelong partnership of Lewis Casson and Sybil Thorndike irradiated the English stage. It was a partnership that combined qualities rare — in themselves but rarer still in conjunction: the traditional with the adventurous, the gay with the high-minded, the sophisticated with the simple, superb natural endowments of voice, looks and intelligence with a no less superb technique. Through it all glowed a warmth of affection, a generosity of sympathy, a zest for life that shone as brightly in old age as it had in the days when Sybil, with four young children to look after, was earning ten shillings a performance at the Old Vie while Lewis was sending home all he could spare from his sergeant’s pay in the trenches. John Casson, their eldest son, himself a naval officer who became a producer and is the father of a young actress already well-known, has written a memoir that rises to its opportunities. Lewis and Sybil are as convincing in themselves as in any of the roles they have created. In one sense the book is the story of a brilliantly talented and strongly attached family over the sixty years that stretch from Edward VII to Elizabeth II. In another it portrays the old professional theatre, without benefit of grants and subsidies, as seen by two of its most professional members, who themselves risked everything to bring the Greek tragedians to a popular audience and for whom Bernard Shaw wrote his greatest play. Yet again it is the intertwining of both these themes with love and death and war and religion and idealism, the world that we all have in common and that so few of us make as much of as they did.

It is a book of pace and pathos and high spirits. There are stories of the theatre and sketches of actors and actresses and producers and writers that will delight everyone who has ever enjoyed a play. Shaw, Gilbert Murray, Godfrey Tearle, Emlyn Williams, Rex Harrison, Gladys Cooper, John Gielgud, Lord Olivier, Marie Tempest, Bronson Albery, Binkie Beaumont — the men and women of the theatre crowd too close to hear a name drop. Above all it is a memorable full length study, intimate without falseness or vulgarity, of two passionate and exciting people who have enriched the lives of English speaking people the world over..”

Mary Queen Of Scots by Antonia Fraser (£10.50)Publisher: Book Club Associates — 1978Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Edges of the dust wrapper frayed with short open tears to the head of both panels. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: 100 Black And White Illustrations And 16 In Colour. From the cover: “From her birth in the Scottish ‘palace of pleasance’, Linlithgow, in 1542, to her tragic death by execution in the grim English castle of Fotheringhay forty-four years later, the life led by Mary Queen of Scots was of a kind to inspire popular imagination, not only among her contemporaries but through to the present day. Crowned Queen of Scotland when only six days old, Mary passed her childhood in France, and married the Dauphin to become Queen of France at the age of sixteen. Widowed less than two years later, she returned to Scotland as its queen after an absence of thirteen years. Her life then entered its most dramatic phase: the early political and religious struggles with John Knox and the unruly Scottish nobility; the disastrous marriage to Darnley and his mysterious death; her fugitive marriage to Both well, the chief suspect, that led directly to her long English captivity at the hands of Elizabeth I; the loneliness of the incarceration that ended with the labyrinthine Babington plot to free her, and the final decision by Elizabeth to execute this romantic figure who presented a threat to the English throne. Mary Queen of Scots, first published in 1969, became an instant best seller. This special edition, abridged and beautifully illustrated, presents Mary’s story for a new readership. Lady Antonia provides the reader with a detailed and sympathetic insight not only into the turbulent political society in which Mary lived, but also into the development of Mary’s character — from the gay and beautiful child queen to the calm woman who died a tragic death with such dignity.”Notes: Size: 10¾" x 7¼".

On the Way to Work by Damien Hirst & Gordon Burn (£10.50)Publisher: Faber & Faber — 2001Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0571202578]Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Actually a pleasant copy but let down by stains to the reverse of the dust wrapper and the top edges of the first and last blank. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “The whole story of the Brit Art phenomenon by the man widely credited with inventing it, in conversation with his friend, award winning writer, Gordon Burn. Immediately recognized as a young artist with a brilliant, sordid and uncompromising imagination, Damien Hirst is one of the most celebrated artists Britain has produced for generations. An originator of the dominant movement in contemporary art on both sides of the Atlantic, he is now so ingrained in the public consciousness that even people with only a passing interest in art are familiar with his notorious shark and pickled sheep. What few people outside his immediate circle know are his brilliance as a talker, and the incisiveness and uniquely skewed nature of his mind. Gordon Burn met Hirst for the first time nine years ago. They both admired David Sylvester’s interviews with Francis Bacon and Jan Wenner’s interviews with John Lennon, and there was always an unspoken understanding between them that they would do something similar when the time was right. The resulting conversations in On The Way To Work are electrifyingly candid. 1 to the undertaking Hirst first gave Burn, there are no off-limits — here are Hirst’s thoughts on celebrity, money, art, alcohol, sex, death, the North of England, class, crime and cocaine; his views on Charles Saatchi, David Bowie, Jeff Koons, Jarvis Cooker, Gilbert and George, Matthew Freud and Lucian Freud.”Notes: Size: 9¼" x 7¼".

People, Places And Pleasures by Louis T. Stanley (£10.50)Publisher: MacDonald — 1965Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good+ — in Good Dust Wrapper. Edges of the dust wrapper frayed at the spine ends and corners with several short, closed, tears. Price Clipped. Very light spotting to start and finish. Text complete, clean and tight othweise. Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “This lavishly-produced book will delight anyone in search of varied entertainment. The profusion of superb photographs taken by the author complement his text and bring an additional dimension of visual excitement to the book.

The author has an enviable ability to capture a personality in a telling phrase. He describes an audience with Pope Paul VI at the Papal summer palace at Castel Gandolfo, and the solemnity of the moment is precisely conveyed. In the same way, he can summarise his response to Somerset Maugham in a finely-drawn vignette. He has an eye for the unusual and the original. He can meet the challenge of Henry Moore, recognising the importance of this sculptor’s vision, and can match the unrestrained gusto of Augustus John. Both are given shrewd and calculating appreciations. The photographic essays conjure up the magic of places far and near, ranging from the medieval enchantment of Chester to the urbane elegance of Rome. Here are the graceful filigree of Parisian streets and the stark facade of the Liverpool waterfront; here, too, the glamour of Monte Carlo and an impressionistic picture of Cambridge in all its aspects. For those with more specialised interests, Louis T. Stanley delves into the world of the racing driver competing for the Grand Prix championships of the world; he reflects on the astonishing brief career of Joan of Arc; and examines in detail the prehistoric monuments that make an archaeologist’s paradise of England.

People, Places and Pleasures is a book to read for the quality of its writing. It is a book to look at with appreciation and enjoyment. It is a book to treasure. .”

[ISBN: 0718119894]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. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “This beautiful book is a new natural history of Britain and Ireland, illustrated by one of Britain’s finest natural history photographers. Heather Angel records nature as it is seen — the pine woods of the Cairngorms laden with snow, the flocks of barnacle geese on the banks of the Solway Firth, the immense charm of a southern chalk stream. But, as a creative photographer, she uses her art to explain the intricate ways of plants and animals resulting in an exquisite tribute to the British countryside. Together with a team of leading naturalists, Heather Angel traces the history and variety of our landscape and then builds on to this the complex picture of Britain and Ireland’s plant and animal life. Our natural history is revealed in the six sections of the book. Each section begins with an introduction to a variety of related habitats, how they came about and why; full-colour maps show where each of the habitats may be seen. The author then displays the roles and inter-relationships of the member plants and animals, from the loftiest oak dominating a wood to the smallest insect in the leaf litter. Following each introductory essay are photographic examples of the innumerable species of plants, insects, birds and mammals found in each habitat.”Notes: Size: 11¾" x 8½".

Treasure Islands: Sailing the South Seas in the Wake of Fanny and Robert Louis Stevenson by Pamela Stephenson (£10.50)Publisher: Headline — 2005Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0755312856]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.Description: Maps to the endpapers. Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “This is the story of two resourceful women. The one, Pamela Stephenson — biographer, mother, wife of Billy Connolly psychologist and ex-comedienne — the other Fanny Stevenson — ‘the Wild Woman of the West’, as her husband Robert Louis called her. Both married to maverick Scottish men, both in search of adventure and a kind of epiphany, both drawn for a myriad of reasons to the coral islands, lagoons, natives and customs of the South Seas. A love of Joseph Conrad, a desire to escape the travails of an LA lifestyle and a fascination with her near namesake all conspired to inspire Pamela Stephenson’s extraordinary voyage to the other side of the world.

All Over Britain by J. H. B. [John Hugh Brignal] Peel (£9.50)Publisher: Readers Union — 1979Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded. Pages deeply tanned by age. Description: From the cover: “This book is the harvest of a poet’s lifelong travels through Britain, from Land’s End to John o’ Groats and from the mountains of Ulster to the Essex marshes. Some of the journeys were first made on foot sixty years ago; others were last made by car a year ago; all were in search of everything in general rather than of anything in particular. As a result they evoke many aspects of Britain as it was, as it is, and as it may become — scenery, industry, architecture, crafts, customs, creeds, in short, the spirit and the substance of four peoples who despite their national differences have for centuries dwelt together as one people.

Although the journeys explore parts of London, and visit several other towns, they are predominantly rural and in most cases deeply rural. But the places are never unpeopled, for Mr Peel is a novelist and playwright as well as a poet. So we meet Izaak Walton, Gilbert White, S W Landor, John Constable, Tennyson, Edward Thomas, Sabine Baring-Gould and A E Housman. And to that famous roll-call is added a host of lesser folk, Britain’s sailors, soldiers, shepherds, shopkeepers, foresters, housewives, undergraduates, parsons, postmen and huntsmen.

Here is a book that will unite the kingdom and delight the millions of readers who for over ten years have read Mr Peel’s fortnightly essays in the Daily Telegraph, entitled Country Talk, now collected and published in four illustrated volumes..”

George Clooney: A Biography by Jeff Hudson (£9.50)Publisher: Virgin — 2003Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 185227994X]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “A-list celebrities don’t come much bigger than George Clooney. Film star, producer and, most recently, director, Clooney brings a Midas touch to every project he takes on. Directors queue to shoot his next picture, actors take huge salary cuts to appear alongside him, producers bend schedules to accommodate his every need. But it wasn’t always like this. When hospital drama series ER hit American TV screens in 1994, George Clooney finally achieved the ‘overnight’ success that he’d been working solidly towards for more than a decade. As maverick paediatrician Dr Doug Ross, he won over the hearts of millions, finally putting behind him the gruelling and often demeaning years of selling women’s shoes, cutting tobacco and appearing in more than a dozen pilot episodes for series that were never made. Next stop Hollywood, and starring roles with Nicole Kidman, Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼". Black boards with Silver titling to the Spine. 250 pages.

[ISBN: 034017014X]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Leans slightly. Description: From the cover: “Graham Winter had come to the quiet family hotel in Brittany to paint. He was fifty, fairly successful and at an emotional junction in his life. The girl appeared at the hotel quite suddenly. It wasn’t an obvious choice for someone so young but then there was nothing very obvious about the girl, except that she had something to hide. Curiousity, attraction or simply an elusive outline in the eye’ of a painter? Graham Winter couldn’t begin to find out until he knew the girl’s secret. And when that happened, it neither shocked nor surprised him. It should have done, because the girl was a boy and the boy was wanted for murder.

From a very talented young novelist, an intriguing and contemporary psychological thriller.”

International Heraldry by L. G. [Leslie Gilbert] Pine (£9.50)Publisher: David & Charles — 1970Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0715360132]Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Heavily faded at the spine. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: First in this, paperback, edition. Illustrated with black and white photographs.

From the cover: “A comprehensive survey of the science and art of armorial bearings and heraldic devices, this book traces the history of heraldry from its small medieval origins as a means of identification on the field of battle to its present-day manifestations in a variety of forms throughout the world. English, Scottish and Irish heraldry are separately examined and there is a full account of their evolution over the ages, their adaptation to civil uses, and their place in the modern world. An extensive section on heraldry in the United States, where an American College of Arms has recently been established and Rolls of Arms are regularly issued, explains heraldry’s relationship to genealogy and the methods by which armigerous ancestors in other countries may be traced and the right to a coat of arms established. Other chapters are devoted to Continental and Oriental Heraldry, for while the groundwork of the science is universal, the practice of it varies greatly from country to country. A section of special interest deals with the Arms of institutions, ranging from commercial undertakings and national bodies to colleges, universities and naval and military units. A final chapter surveys the histories of the arms of royal houses, sovereign states, Indian Princes and of the state symbols of Commonwealth countries.

Written in characteristically readable style by a leading international authority on the subject, and fully illustrated, this is a book which makes the study of heraldry as clear and as easy of comprehension for the student as ever were the insignia so proudly borne in the van of battle in medieval times.”

Lewis & Sybil by John Casson (£9.50)Publisher: Collins — 1972Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0002114887]Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper heavily faded at the spine and slightly ruffled at the top edge. Leans slightly. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight but slightly musty. Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The lifelong partnership of Lewis Casson and Sybil Thorndike irradiated the English stage. It was a partnership that combined qualities rare — in themselves but rarer still in conjunction: the traditional with the adventurous, the gay with the high-minded, the sophisticated with the simple, superb natural endowments of voice, looks and intelligence with a no less superb technique. Through it all glowed a warmth of affection, a generosity of sympathy, a zest for life that shone as brightly in old age as it had in the days when Sybil, with four young children to look after, was earning ten shillings a performance at the Old Vie while Lewis was sending home all he could spare from his sergeant’s pay in the trenches. John Casson, their eldest son, himself a naval officer who became a producer and is the father of a young actress already well-known, has written a memoir that rises to its opportunities. Lewis and Sybil are as convincing in themselves as in any of the roles they have created. In one sense the book is the story of a brilliantly talented and strongly attached family over the sixty years that stretch from Edward VII to Elizabeth II. In another it portrays the old professional theatre, without benefit of grants and subsidies, as seen by two of its most professional members, who themselves risked everything to bring the Greek tragedians to a popular audience and for whom Bernard Shaw wrote his greatest play. Yet again it is the intertwining of both these themes with love and death and war and religion and idealism, the world that we all have in common and that so few of us make as much of as they did.

It is a book of pace and pathos and high spirits. There are stories of the theatre and sketches of actors and actresses and producers and writers that will delight everyone who has ever enjoyed a play. Shaw, Gilbert Murray, Godfrey Tearle, Emlyn Williams, Rex Harrison, Gladys Cooper, John Gielgud, Lord Olivier, Marie Tempest, Bronson Albery, Binkie Beaumont — the men and women of the theatre crowd too close to hear a name drop. Above all it is a memorable full length study, intimate without falseness or vulgarity, of two passionate and exciting people who have enriched the lives of English speaking people the world over..”

Okinawa 1945: The Stalingrad of the Pacific by George Feifer (£9.50)Publisher: Tempus — 2005Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0752433245]Condition: Near Fine.Description: From the cover: “As the siege of Stalingrad was the ultimate scene of carnage at the Eastern Front, the battle of Okinawa proved to be the bloodiest of the Pacific war. Almost the entire Japanese kamikaze effort of the Second World War was directed against the Americans at Okinawa. At the beginning of the battle on 1 April 1945, over one million Americans, Japanese and Okinawans were centred on the small Pacific island; by 23 June, when the Japanese commanders committed seppuku, 250,000 civilians and soldiers were dead. More people died during the battle of Okinawa than in the ensuing bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined. Okinawa 1945 offers a stunning account of the last major campaign of the Second World War and the largest land-sea-air engagement. Superbly researched and extraordinarily detailed, Okinawa 1945 is told at the level of the participants themselves, soldiers and civilians alike, with the dramatic stories of three individuals running through the entire account.”Notes: Size: Trade Paperback (9¼" x 6"). 447 pages.
