In Me My Enemy by Audrey Erskine Lindop (£28.00)Publisher: White Lion — 1978Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0856177946]Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with light frays to the spine ends and corners. Leans and has a slight shelf cock. Price Clipped. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: First in this edition, [First: Harrap, 1948] and uncommon as such. From the cover: “Loneliness and despair drive Clare Vetch to fix upon her suicide. But is that decision freely made, and is it hers alone? Long-dead generations have an unseen influence upon her. The blood of unknown ancestors flows within her veins. The turbulent history of her forebears has a direct bearing on what she can, or cannot, decide to do. Juliet Vetch, Hamilton Durrey, the amiable soldier George Vetch, Yvetsa, the Russian Princess who was Clare’s mother, and Robert, Yvetsa’s husband — the passions, rages, loves and sorrows of all of these are part of Clare’s unhappy heritage. Can she overcome it? Is she free to want to?

Audrey Erskine Lindop poses an intriguing question at the beginning of this book — what will happen to Clare? What does happen is not for telling here. It is sufficient to say that what does happen rounds off a most absorbing story.”

Bermuda Aerial Views by Scott Stallard (£26.00)Publisher: Oakwell Boulton — 1992Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0920831129]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper which is slightly loose and has a stain at the head of the spine. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Signed by David (Dyer?), Minister of Youth Development, Sport & Recreation. Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “This is the third photographic portrait of Bermuda that Scott Stallard has published in book form. His preceding volumes, Bermuda and Bermuda II, depicted in vibrant colour and immediate detail the beauty of Bermuda that surrounds us everywhere on this exquisite island. Now a new dimension opens up, Bermuda seen in low flight from the air. The photographer in his helicopter passes and re-passes, circles and returns, follows as a painter follows with a brush each inlet and contour, each little revelation of the scene below.

It is remarkable that a place so small in physical size should offer such variety of visual beauty as to be a world to itself. Seen from the close range of our circling helicopter, Bermuda has all the varied intimacy that we have come to expect from Scott Stallard. He takes us back and forth, from garden to garden, house to house, from churches to harbours, looking down on Trimingham’s one minute and on the QE2at Dockyard in the next.

This is the work of an artist inspired by his subject. There is tremendous enthusiasm in his Introduction. He writes, ‘suddenly it is all new to me. This is the thrill of seeing Bermuda from the air. What has been viewed all our lives from one perspective is magically transformed to another. It is a discovery that this chain of islands is even more beautiful than we knew.

For all Bermudians, for those who know and love the island, for the visitor who wishes to cherish a memory of this special place, here is the completion of a unique and spectacular trilogy..”

War at Sea 1939-45 by John Hamilton (£24.50)Publisher: Poole: Blandford Press — 1986Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0713716606]Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and the top corners of the boards with commensurate wear to the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: 2nd impression. [First Edition: 1986] Signed by the author on the half-title page — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. Jacket illustration: War Horse of the Allied Navies at Sea; Illustrated by way of: Colour Plates; Diagrams; Maps; Tables;

From the cover: “John Hamilton is acknowledged as one of the world’s leading painters of the Second World War at sea. His paintings of the war in the Pacific are on exhibition in Washington DC while a permanent site for them is being established. The series portraying the conflict in the Atlantic and European waters forms an essential part of the Imperial War Museum’s collection on board HMS Belfast in the Pool of London.

War At Sea includes 176 of his superb paintings. Careful research and the assistance of a worldwide panel of advisers have ensured great accuracy both in the events depicted and in the equipment, vessels and aircraft involved.

Above all, the paintings give a clear and dramatic impression of war at sea. They are a tribute to the courage and endurance of the sailors and marines, soldiers and airmen of all nationalities, whether on the convoys to Russia, supporting the D-Day landings or launching an assault on the Pacific islands. They do not glorify war but are dedicated to the belief that to understand it is to understand also how urgent is the need to keep the peace.

The paintings are supported by a lively text with 43 maps. Together, they make WAR at SEA a unique contribution to the literature of the Second World War.”

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 oldest of these men is 109, the youngest 104. In their own words they describe the extraordinary changes that have occurred during their lifetimes. Born in the reign of Queen Victoria, all have lived as adults through the Depression, the Second World War and the Millennium. But for these men, the Great War was the defining period of their lives. Some of them, mere boys at the outbreak, lied about their ages to join up. They saw action in the trenches, at sea and in the fledgling air services.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Human Nature: Fact and Fiction by Edited by Robin Headlam Wells & Johnjoe McFadden (£11.50)Publisher: Continuum — 2006Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0826485464]Condition: Near Fine.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “What do we mean by ‘human nature’? Is there a genetically determined core of humanity that unites us all as members of a single species? Or is the thing we call human nature a social construct? And how do we explain the mystery of human creativity? Do great writers have an intuitive grasp of what makes human beings tick, or are they merely the mouthpiece of contemporary culture? It has been claimed that ‘the greatest enterprise of the mind has always been and always will be the attempted linkage of the sciences and humanities’ (Edward O. Wilson). This ground-breaking book marks the beginning of a new dialogue between the two. Rather than focusing on the division between what C.P. Snow called ‘the two cultures’, it shows that the sciences and humanities have much to learn from each other. Points of disagreement remain. Yet there is in this volume a genuine attempt to bridge the gulf that has traditionally separated the sciences and humanities and to reach a better understanding of what it means to be human. Human Nature — Fact and Fiction is a major new contribution to the debate on human nature, set to be required reading for anyone with a background in either the arts or the sciences who is interested in understanding what defines us as human beings — in what we are, and why.”Notes: Foreword or introduction by A.

Geoff Hamilton's Year in Your Garden: A Month-by-Month Celebration of a Gardening Genius by Compiled by Andi Clevely (£10.50)Publisher: Headline — 1998Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0747222312]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Contains a glossary of terms. Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Colour Drawings; Diagrams;

From the cover: “MORE THAN ANY OTHER GARDEN WRITER, Geoff Hamilton understood what ordinary, busy people wanted in their gardens without having to outlay huge amounts of time or money. For over twenty years, through his gardening columns, books and television programmes, he used his personal experience to guide, to inspire -and sometimes to cajole — his readers and viewers.

HERE, culled for the first time from over a thousand of his articles for the Daily Express, is the best of Geoff Hamilton: a superb blueprint that tells you exactly how and when to do what is most important in your garden. As Geoff knew, a timely reminder can make the difference between failure and success, and his articles were intended to be such reminders. With his unfailingly down-to-earth approach and infectious enthusiasm, he guides you through the months, giving advice based on his own extensive knowledge and tried-and-tested methods. Clearly laid out, with sections for each part of the garden, every month begins with a checklist of the key tasks, and includes step-by-step illustrations of the most important techniques, as well as descriptions of some of Geoff s favourite plants.

THE BOOK has the blessing of Lynda Hamilton vho, as his wife, shared Geoffs life at Barnsdale. She has written a preface explaining the importance to Geoff of an organic approach to gardening and his belief in the merits of natural weed and pest control, and has also contributed a very personal introduction to each month in which she reflects on their pattern of life at Barnsdale throughout the seasons.

THE DEEP LOVE OF GARDENING and wide expertise that gained Geoff such a following spring from these pages. But this is a book not just for the millions of Geoffs fans, it is also for anyone looking for a beautifully illustrated, honest-to-goodness guide to the most popular gardening skills.”

[ISBN: 0002570793]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Pages lightly age-tanned.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Queen Elizabeth is far and away the most experienced figure in British public lire. The most famous woman in the world, she is also its most private. Now, in her fiftieth year on the throne, Brian Hoey — one of our best-informed royal chroniclers — takes a searching look at the ups and downs of Her Majesty’s long reign, and highlights the important difference in people’s attitudes towards the Queen personally and the monarchy in general. The author has had unrivalled access to past and present members of the royal staff and household, as well as to ex-Heads of State, statesmen, politicians and personal friends of the Queen. Nothing they have said is ‘off the record’. The result is a lively, authoritative and revealing portrait of the Queen’s life and work seen largely through the eyes of those who’ve known her and worked with her over the course of half a century.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

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".

Nelson: The Man and the Legend by Terry Coleman (£10.50)Publisher: Bloomsbury — 2001Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0747556857]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Bruised at the head of the spine and the top corners of the boards with commensurate wear to the dust wrapper. Personal ex-libris plate to the reverse of the first blank. Pages lightly age-tanned. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “Horatio Nelson was a paramount naval genius and a natural-born predator, and those who look to find a saint besides will miss the man. In private life as in war he was ruthless. A fanatic for duty, at times beyond all sense, he was also a royalist so infatuated with the divine right of kings that he began to see himself as an instrument of God. No one expects so great a marshal as Napoleon, or so implacable a general as Sherman, to be a saint as well, but Nelson has been encumbered with his own romantic legend, which he helped to create. So famous a story as the telescope held to the blind eye at Copenhagen is pure myth.

The real Nelson was a man whose mind was, in his own words, fixed as fate, whose instinct was not just to defeat the enemy but to annihilate him. At the height of his fame he was half unhinged, a generous man who wanted his wife dead, besotted with Emma Hamilton but jealously unsure of her, at odds with his honourable father whose funeral he did not attend, at law with his old mentor Earl St Vincent over prize money, and damning the Lords of the Admiralty as a set of beasts. Based almost entirely upon original letters and documents and with full apparatus, Terry Coleman’s fascinating new biography gives us a penetrating and original picture of an unfamiliar Nelson.”

Robert Lowell: A Biography by Ian Hamilton (£10.50)Publisher: Faber & Faber — 1983Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0571130453]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs;

From the cover: “Born in 1917 into an aristocratic Boston family, Robert Lowell was not yet thirty when his first major collection, Lord Weary’s Castle, won the Pulitzer Prize. With Life Studies, his third book, he found the intense, highly personal voice that established him as the foremost American poet of the generation which followed that of Pound, Frost and Eliot. A conscientious objector in World War II, Lowell held strong if complex political beliefs: with fame the poet became the public man, and what he said and did — against the Vietnam War, for example — became front-page news.

Despite literary acclaim and public recognition, Lowell was never far from personal disaster. The only child of a troubled marriage, he showed from youth signs of the manic-depressive cycle that would cripple him throughout his life and cause intense suffering to himself and those around him. These troublesand Lowell’s three turbulent marriages — to the writers Jean Stafford, Elizabeth Hardwick and Caroline Blackwood -increasingly became the material of his art.

lan Hamilton, poet and critic, has written a superb literary biography, illuminating both the life and the work with sympathetic understanding and consummate narrative skill. Quoting generously from letters, manuscripts and interviews made exclusively available to him by Lowell’s friends and heirs he has produced an unforgettable account of a life which helped to shape our time.”

The Ornamental Kitchen Garden by Geoff Hamilton (£10.50)Publisher: British Broadcasting Corporation [B.B.C./BBC] — 1990Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0563360178]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine. 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. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: A Later Printing. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Black & White Drawings; Colour Drawings; Diagrams;

From the cover: “The Ornamental Kitchen Garden is a beautifully illustrated and highly practical guide to a new style of gardening. In fact it is not a new style but a return to traditional methods once found in gardens all over the world, from medieval monasteries to Victorian kitchen gardens, when fruit, flowers and vegetables were planted in the same beds in an attractive and productive mix.

This sort of garden not only looks good and provides constant variety all year round, but is essentially kind to the environment and in tune with nature. And it’s ideally suited to small gardens as well as to large. It attracts wildlife — especially birds and insects — which help to keep pests under control, while the different species growing side by side make the most of the soil.

Geoff Hamilton, BBC TV’s popular gardening expert and the writer and presenter of The Ornamental Kitchen Garden television series on which the book is based, tells you everything you need to know to create an ornamental kitchen garden from scratch or to transform an existing garden. He explains, with the help of drawings, how to plan your garden with paths, beds, patio and garden pool. Using step-by-step photos and easy-to-follow drawings he shows how to make all the essential components: brick and scree paths, arbours and pergolas, cold frames, cloches and compost bins, as well as how to lay lawns. He gives detailed descriptions of the decorative plants -perennials and annuals, bulbs and herbs, climbers, vegetables, ornamental trees and shrubs, fruit trees and bushes — which would be most suitable for this sort of garden and explains how to cultivate them.

Geoff Hamilton is a great believer in organic gardening and a final chapter tells the reader how to deal with pests, diseases and weeds without recourse to chemicals, and gives advice on how to increase the productivity of the soil using natural fertilizers.

Inspired by the wealth of suggestions and ideas in this highly illustrated, informative book, you can spend many happy hours creating and looking after your own ornamental kitchen garden — a place of beauty to relax in and enjoy.”

[ISBN: 1854792237]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “When the world’s press published photographs of the Duchess of York in various compromising poses with her ‘financial adviser’, John Bryan, her royal career was finished. But the affair with Bryan was only just beginning. Bryan, a modestly well-off American who convinced people, Fergie among them, that he was vastly wealthy, and the Duchess, who wanted to shrug off the responsibilities of royalty but hoped to take the prestige and bankability of the Windsors with her, embarked upon a roller coaster ride of fast living which left Bryan bankrupt and Fergie with a world-famous overdraft. As Bryan’s friend and business partner, Allan Starkie, was drawn into this relationship, first as a stand-in for Bryan who, for most of the four-year relationship, could not be seen publicly with the Duchess, then as her unpaid business manager and, eventually, to use her own words, as her ‘dearest friend and brother’. As such he travelled the world with Fergie, becoming as much her friend as Bryan’s. It is from this unique perspective that Starkie is able to give his account of one of the most destructive love affairs of the century.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with light creasing to both panels and the price clipped. Pages deeply tanned by age. Description: From the cover: “We’re not accustomed to having relations of the staff planted upon us. So runs the feeling among the girls of IV A. in St. Oswyth’s School for Girls when Judy Bethune, niece of the Latin master, arrives in the middle of the Spring Term. But Judy, although a little bewildered, is not daunted by this cool reception; with her natural friendliness, enthusiasm and love of adventure she breaks down the barrier of resentment. Herself a keen Guide, Judy tries hard to interest her school-mates in Guiding, but it is not until she has proved herself a ‘good sport’ by showing resourcefulness and pluck that her dream of a Guide Company at St. Oswyth’s comes true.

Judy’s adventures make exciting and amusing reading and will be much enjoyed by all schoolgirls.”

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.

Had the plot succeeded, the American Revolution might easily have been defeated, with incalculable consequences for the history of the world.

How near was André to success? And what kind of man was this, whose own enemies — the very people against whom he plotted — wished to set him free?”

The Road to Greyfriars by George R. Samways (£9.50)Publisher: Howard Baker — 1984Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0703002627]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “A remarkable life story. George Richmond Samways, a professional writer of repute, was born into a world that has long since vanished from the rural face of England. A world of strict Victorian tenets, hard times, and even harder discipline.

Orphaned at an early age, George Samways was sent to what was then a charity school (now a public school) where he endured the harshest treatment — by today’s standards, a regimen of terror, where brutal floggings were the order of the day for the smallest infraction of the rules, and where the daily diet was of such substance as would be scorned by any denizen of a modern-day penal establishment.

By dint of rigorous application to study and sheer determination to rise above an underprivileged childhood, he taught himself shorthand and typing, learned to take dictation, the rudiments of book-keeping and became his Headmaster’s (unpaid) private secretary — whilst still a schoolboy!

Upon leaving school, his talents led him, inevitably, to Fleet Street, where he became one of ‘Lord Northcliffe’s young men’. Always an avid reader of The Magnet and The Gem from his pre-teens, he was invited to join the editorial staff of the ‘Companion Papers’ — the generic term applied to the school-story weeklies The Magnet and The Gem, featuring the adventures of Harry Wharton & Co and Billy Bunter at Greyfriars, and Tom Merry, Arthur Augustus D’Arcy & Co of St. Jim’s.

And then, as the author describes it, began the happiest days of his life. Thus the name of George Richmond Samways became a respected one in Greyfriars lore. And with good reason. A gifted writer, he was nevertheless willing to subordinate his own not inconsiderable talents to the pressing needs of the Companion Papers and the delight of millions of readers worldwide and to deliberately sacrifice his own identity to the greater fame of ‘Frank Richards’.

As a result, he produced ‘substitute stories’ which many found it difficult to distinguish from the work of The Master’, and so helped keep The Magnet in being when, it might well have foundered.

At Fleetway House he subsequently became chief sub-editor and the author of a great number of Grey friars stories. But these were not his only contributions to the saga of that great school. He was also the Greyfriars poet and penned many a memorable verse — some of which are still broadcast today by the B.B.C.

George Richmond Samways served in both World Wars, and his unheroic but diverting experiences in The Royal Flying Corps are vividly described. In the Second World War he was stationed in Iceland with the R.A.F.

But Greyfriars lore and legend is at the heart of this book and will ensure that it has a privileged place on the bookshelves of ‘Old Boys’ everywhere. It is as informative as it is entertaining: an entrancing record of times past and a window on a by-gone age.”
