A Manual of Clayshooting by Chris Cradock (£15.50)Publisher: London: B. T. Batsford Ltd. — 1986Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0713453087]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Previous owners' inscription to the reverse of the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: 2nd (revised) edition, 2nd printing, [First Published: 1983] Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs [90]; Diagrams [26];

From the cover: “Writing from a wealth of experience and a position of authority, Chris Cradock has produced a manual of techniques and hardware in clayshooting, comprehensive in scope and meticulous in detail. He has been involved with the sport for 60 years, and there are few aspects of its application both in Europe and the United States with which he is not familiar.

The book deals initially with modern shotguns and cartridges and the specifications of both for the various disciplines. There is then information on the try-gun, fitting and stock alterations. Buying a gun, suitable clothing and accessories are then discussed before the book covers the basics of the sport such as safety, stance and style. Shooting the various disciplines forms the basis of the next chapter. Much more general information is given in subsequent sections which deal with refereeing, shooting clubs, trap operation and control, coaching and maintenance. There is, finally, a chapter on the sport’s future.

In total, Chris Cradock has produced a work, both informative and readable, which will quickly establish itself as the reference manual for all those with an active interest in sport.”

Contest for the Heavens by Claus Jensen (£13.00)Publisher: The Harvill Press — 1996Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 1860462162]Condition: Very Good. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs;

From the cover: “In January 1986 the space shuttle Challenger, the latest and most sophisticated addition to a programme of space exploration refined over forty years since the development of the German V-2 rockets, blasted off from Kennedy Space Center only to explode 73 seconds into its flight. The bodies of the seven astronauts, two of them women, were later pulled up off the floor of the Atlantic. This many years into the programme, some thirty years after the Russians put a satellite into orbit, popular opinion accepted that American technological know-how had identified and mastered every key problem in putting hardware and humans into space, and riding a space shuttle was about as safe as getting on a bus. It was the Challenger disaster that prompted the big rethink. What the Presidential Commission of Inquiry discovered is that there is more to space technology than physics and mathematics: there is politics, public relations, finance, and a host of conflicting interests to reconcile. This investigation is about O-rings and tolerances, but it is chiefly about the people, the technologists, astronauts, industrialists and politicians who combined to send up the space rockets.”

DJ slightly ruffled at the edges.Description: From the cover: “At a time when the Challenger and Chernobyl disasters have cast new light on the fallibility of high technology, Jon Connell attacks the myth that scientists have all the answers. He arouse that the wizards of high-tech cannot attain even their own technical goals, let alone provide durable solutions to what are essentially political problems. He suggests that without a fundamental rethinking of the way our defence establishment does its business, we will end up on the road to bankruptcy, and are likely to become less, not more, secure. The New Maginot Line should be required reading for every student of Western defence, whether in or out of government.”Notes: Jacket designed by Paul Weaver. Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Practicality is the keynote and the authors have not hesitated to deal with what is likely to go wrong as well as demonstrate the model cases when everything goes right.

A glance at the detailed contents pages will show that the authors have provided a thorough examination of all the skills and techniques needed for the design and implementation of a major computer system, organised in such a way that this is an essential reference book for practising systems analysts as well as those at the start of their career.”

The OpenGL extensions guide by Eric Lengyel (£10.50)Publisher: Hingham: Charles River Media — 2003Binding: Hardback [ISBN: 9781584502944]Condition: Near Fine. Description: From the cover: “OpenGL is the premier environment for developing 2D and 3D graphics and game applications. The interface has been the choice of game programmers, mainly because of its cross-platform operability, but also because it is constantly evolving to keep pace with hardware advances in the form of extensions. Until now, the game industry was lacking one single, concise reference to help make sense of the dozens of extensions available.

The OpenGL Extensions Guide provides this much needed resource and concentrates specifically on the extensions most important to developing modern 3D games. The book is laid out in an intuitive fashion, discussing groups of extensions that modify or augment similar components of the base OpenGL architecture. In addition, the text focuses mainly on operational and implementation issues, discussing the underlying mathematics of an extension only when it is critical to understanding that extension’s functionality.”

Glass and Metalware by Dorothea Hall (£9.50)Publisher: London: Bracken Books — 1992Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 1851709150]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper gently sunned at the spine. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “The range of collectable items in glass and metal is truly phenomenal. Both materials were originally used in purely functional forms; and both developed into media with which skilled craftsmen could create works of exquisite beauty.

Collectors are almost spoiled for choice. It is possible to specialize in a particular period, or on a particular maker; or to concentrate on one type of object. Expenditure need not be great; half the fun is in hunting out bargains or unexpected finds.

In this very popular series, Collecting for Pleasure GLASS AND METALWARE covers a particularly attractive range of 24 collectable categories, from essentials such as tableware and cutlery to highly covetable dressing table silver, art metalware, cut glass and art glass. In the process, it affords insights into many lifestyles, from the Georgian period through to the Art Nouveau movement.

Invaluable buying advice is also given — what to look for and what to avoid, how to check quality and makers’ marks, how to distinguish between originals and reproductions; and there are indispensable price guides for each category to aid the would-be purchaser.

This beautifully illustrated and informative book will be a delight to established collectors and to those new to the field of glass and metal collecting.”

I, Martha Adams by Pauline Glen Winslow (£9.50)Publisher: Arlington — 1982Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0851405851]Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper. Leans heavily. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “The setting is America, the time the late 1980’s. A Soviet nuclear strike has destroyed U.S. missiles on land, in the air and at sea. The nation is rendered virtually defenceless and a stunned people have little choice but to accept the surrender and try and continue living as best they can.

The victors should be jubilant as they tighten their grip on their latest, and greatest, conquest, but a grim discovery, extorted from a tortured, dying U.S. general, shatters their confidence. Somewhere a weapon exists, so deadly it could wipe out Russia from Vladivostok to Smolensk and once again change the balance of power in the world. It was America’s best kept secret and the frantic search to find it, and discover the men who have knowledge of it, becomes the awesome task of the new rulers. It is also the obsession of the Russian Troika, appointed by Moscow to govern the defeated country; its members, Marshal Borunukov, Ramon Perez and the sinister, ambitious Virinsky, are all desperate to uncover the secret first and thereby emerge as undisputed conqueror and head of state above their colleagues.

The name of this weapon is Magnanimity. The truth is that the few men who once shared the secret are now dead. There is not one man left alive who knows the whole truth about Magnanimity. But there is a woman…”
