Heaven's Mirror: Quest for the Lost Civilization by Graham Hancock & Santha Faiia (£17.50)Publisher: Michael Joseph — 1998Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0718143329]Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper, pulled at the head of the upper panel with a slight tear to the top corner of the same. Ding to the spine. Price Clipped. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Diagrams; Maps; Plans;

From the cover: “In Heaven’s Mirror, author Graham Hancock continues the quest begun in his No. 1 international bestseller Fingerprints Of Thf Gods to rediscover the hidden legacy of mankind — the revelation that the cultures we term ancient were, in fact, the heirs to a far older forgotten civilization, and the inheritors of its archaic wisdom…

Working with the photographer Santha Faiia, his wife, Hancock traces a network of sacred sites around the globe on a spectacular voyage of discovery that takes us from the pyramids and temples of ancient Egypt to the enigmatic statues of Easter Island, from the haunting ruins of pre-Columbian America to the splendours of Angkor Wat, in order to crack the code of our lost ancestors. It is an odyssey that leads to sunken monuments and hidden chambers — a journey through myth and magic, and astounding archaeological revelations, that forces us to rethink our entire conception of the origins of civilization.

Much more than a sequel to Fingerprints Of The Gods, Heaven’s Mirror is a plunge into the spirituality of the ancients — a search for the revelation of a secret written in the language of astronomy, and recorded in the very foundations of the holiest sites of antiquity…

A secret which speaks of a mysterious connection between earth and heaven…

A secret which transforms temples into stars and men into gods…

The deepest and darkest secret of our forgotten past.”

The Guinness Jazz A-Z by Peter Clayton; Peter Gammond; (£15.50)Publisher: Guinness Superlatives — 1986Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0851122817]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the spine ends. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. A nice copy overall.Description: From the cover: “Peter Clayton and Peter Gammond — two of the most prolific and respected jazz broadcasters and writers — have here managed that rare achievement: a book of scholarship so filled with anecdotes, fascinating facts and entertaining insight, that both jazz aficionados as well as newcomers will recognize The Guinness Jazz A-Z is an un-put-down-able little classic.

Not only are there definitions of musical and technical terms but also, for example, explanations of how musicians derived their nicknames and jazz venues their titles. And, thankfully, Peter Clayton and Peter Gammond work the rich vein of slang, which is the essence of jazzspeak and which has found its way into the mainstream of language worldwide.”

Architecture by David Jacobs (£10.50)Publisher: Newsweek Books — 1974Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0882251074]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. Pages very gently age-tanned.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “THE STORY OF BUILDING, writes the author of this penetrating study, starts the way stories of so many of mankind’s enterprises start — “speculatively, and in the almost immeasurably distant past”. But it would be an exasperating experience to trace the evolution of mud huts into pyramids, Greek temples, and Gothic cathedrals. Instead, he invites the reader to separate buildings for shelter from buildings as artistic statements. In an instant, we see architecture as a badge of civilization, “the requisite sign, the certain credential without which a society cannot be called civilized”. Architecture has some 170 illustrations, more than a third in full colour. Stunning modern photographs are juxtaposed with plans, cross sections, scale models, and historic views to form a vivid counterpoint to the authoritative text. A special, twenty-four page section, “Architects on Architecture”, contains excerpts from the writings of Louis H. Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier and Eero Saarinen, among others. A five-page chronology relates events in the history of architecture to other cultural and political developments, while a selected bibliography and a full index make this a valuable reference work.”Notes: Size: 10½" x 7½".

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.
