The Wirral by Alan Brack (£20.50)Publisher: Phillimore & Co. — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0850336791]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the head of the spine. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Reprint with amendments. [First Edition: 1980] Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the flap: “The Wirral was already an old-established administrative unit at the time of Domesday Book. This book is concerned with all those aspects of the Wirral, whether of history, architecture or landscape, that give the peninsula its individuality. Well known as a writer on the locality, Alan Brack starts with the immense advantage of having lived there nearly all his life. His book is at once scholarly, readable and entertaining. He has studiously avoided the highly romanticised view which has persisted in other accounts of the area and his opening chapter, ‘A Place Apart’, sets the tone for the whole book. There are sections on Birkenhead and Wallasey and on Bebington and Bromborough. An authoritative account of the establishment of Ellesmere Port is followed by a chapter on the Urbanised Districts of Hoylake, Neston and Heswall, on the Urbanised, Unexpected and Purpose-built villages, on the open spaces and on crossing the Mersey. The description of Port Sunlight, with its vignette of Lord Leverhulme, is especially well-informed. Human interest relieves a generally topographical approach through the appearance in the local context of the many notable men and women who have been associated with the Wirral.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

The Langhorne Sisters by James Fox (£11.50)Publisher: Granta Books — 1998Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1862070717]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the flap: “High-spirited, beautiful, clannish and adored, the five strikingly different Langhorne sisters were mythologized in the plural long after their separate careers were a matter of history. Their great fame held sway first in the South, in Virginia, then across the rest of America and England. Lizzie, the eldest, was trapped in post-Civil War Richmond. Irene was the eternal Southern belle who also became the model for the Gibson Girl. Nancy, an unpredictable, elemental force, conquered Edwardian society in England — as Nancy Astor — and was the first woman to sit in Parliament at Westminster. Phyllis, private, romantic, melancholy, was Nancy's confidante and the only person she loved all through her life. Nora, the youngest, was extravagant, feckless and promiscuous, her life punctuated with seductions and boltings. Using the sisters’ intimate voices selected from thousands of letters and journals, this epic narrative charts the attempts of two extraordinary women to transform and recreate themselves, and the chain of events that would have such a destructive effect on their family lives and happiness.”Notes: Jacket designed by Peter Dyer. 578 pages.

Hats Off: Poems and Drawings by Joyce Grenfell (£9.50)Publisher: John Murray — 2001Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0719561523]Condition: Near Fine — in Very Good Dustwrapper. Small nick to the dust wrapper at the foot of the upper panel otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Drawings;

From the cover: “Joyce Grenfell was known and loved the world over for her inimitable songs and monologues, but her first earnings, during the 1930s, were from her poetry, and she went on writing poems all her life. Many of her clever, affectionate, sometimes acerbic verses first appeared in Punch, the Observer, the Christian Science Monitor and Country Life. Most have lain unseen since then, and some have never been published before.

Collected here for the first time, along with some of Joyce’s own delightful sketches and Christmas cards, they conjure up a lost England — a place where trains ran on time and horses ploughed the fields, where nice girls were ‘finished’ before becoming debs, and the family cook earned £50 a year. Those from the 1940s evoke a country at war, with its National Gallery concerts, park railings stripped to make armaments, and households full of young men in uniform — ‘Two second lieuts p. g. with me… Two second lieuts (two bob and three)’ as she put it wryly in ‘Men in the House’.

The poems range through many different moods lyrical, wistful, funny, sad — but all are full of wit and observation. Like her monologues, they show that beneath the frivolous hats Joyce loved so much was a pair of eyes that missed nothing.”
