Description: Jacket illustration: Howe and Queen Elizabeth at sea in December 1944 by John Roberts. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Plates [4]; Diagrams; Tables; Fold-Out Maps;

From the cover: “This large and lavishly-illustrated volume presents a comprehensive account of the design and construction of the British battleships that served in the Second World War — from the Queen Elizabeth class to Vanguard. Much of the information contained in this book, which is the result of exhaustive research conducted over many years, is published for the first time, for only recently have official documents of the period been made available to the public. British Battleships of World War Two is therefore unique in making available the full story of the design and construction of every battleship and battlecruiser class of the period as first built, together with all details of the various refits and reconstructions that each vessel underwent during its service life. The contents also include a comprehensive review of developments in weapons, gunnery, fire-control, radar, protection and propulsion, taking in every aspect of battleship design and usage; and there are sections devoted to the actions involving British battleships during the Second World War, and to comparisons between the British battleships and their counterparts in other navies.

Complementing the text are some three hundred photographs, which in themselves constitute a history of the vessels. These are supplemented by numerous superb specially-drawn sets of plans and elevations — fully detailed and based on the official builders’ plans — comprising over three hundred individual drawings. They depict the ships not only in their “as built” configurations, but show also the many modifications and alterations carried out during their careers. British Battleships of World War Two is a magnificent volume that takes its place as the definitive work of reference on the subject.”

The Sanitation of Domestic Buildings by Frank Latham (£102.00)Publisher: The Sanitary — UndatedBinding: Hardback Condition: Good+.

A pleasant copy.Description: Green cloth with gilt titling to spine, gilt titling and colophon to upper board. Illustrated with line drawings. Undated but published c. 1900 judging by the 1898 date of the introduction. Often the inspection of a house as to its sanitary state only takes place after disease and, probably, death have taken place. As prevention is better than cure, the information given in the following pages, it is hoped, will lead to more attention being paid to the sanitation of domestic dwellings, and it will, if properly studied and acted upon, undoubtedly be the means of preventing much undue suffering and expense, as it can be clearly proved that there is nothing more expensive than disease and death,Notes: Foreword or introduction by Baldwin Latham.

From the cover: “Once upon a time there was a little girl called Rosemary who slept in a cot with sides, but she was growing so fast that her feet touched the bottom and her head touched the top. It was clearly time that she had a new bed. Buy me, whispered a funny little bed in the corner of the furniture store — so Rosemary did, and very glad she was too, because this bed knew how to fly! An enchanting little story by an author who really knows the ways of children. They will be entranced by Rosemary’s visits to the seaside, the circus and the gypsy encampment, and last of all her journey with Father Christmas, all in her magic bed. Molly Brett’s imaginative illustrations blend well with the story, making a picture book which will be a firm bedtime favourite.”

Description: Jacket illustration: The French cruiser, Gloire. . Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Tables;

From the cover: “This authoritative history of camouflage is undoubtedly the most comprehensive study of the subject to date. Visual and illustrative in its approach, it concentrates on the British and US navies, but the camouflage patterns of enemy navies (and selected allies) are covered as well.

Contrary to popular belief, naval camouflage at sea was not intended to ‘hide’ ships, and an in-depth commentary explains the theory and development of visual deception, and the different ways in which it was intended to work at sea.

The core of the book is a listing of all the major patterns and schemes, with their colours, characteristics and function. Wherever possible each is illustrated with at least one photograph providing the reader with a visual reference as well as a description; where there were variations, as many as possible are depicted.

This is a subject of immense importance and significance for all those with an interest in the warships of the two World Wars — this comprehensive reference book is simply the best available.”

The Piercebridge Formula: A Dramatic New View of Roman History by Raymond Selkirk (£88.00)Publisher: Patrick Stephens — 1983Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition.

Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Signed by the author on the title page — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Diagrams; Maps; Tables; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “Though deceptively simple, the Piercebridge Formula will revolutionise our view of Roman Britain. Its implications are destined to influence archaeologists for many years to come. For what freelance pilot turned amateur archaeologist Raymond Selkirk has discovered is that the Roman Conquest of Britain was carried out by water transport and not by road as has been commonly supposed. His theory was proved at Piercebridge, on the River Tees, where, by a combination of brilliant aerial surveys and detective work on the ground, he found the archetypal water-supplied Roman site. For some time he had strongly suspected that waterways must be the answer, for how could ox-carts have travelled on Roman roads which often climbed gradients which would daunt a modern saloon car? Also, how could the oxen have carried any load at all when they would have needed all their strength merely to pull carts laden with fodder for themselves?

At Piercebridge it became clear that where a Roman road crosses a river, there is an excellent chance of finding a Roman site. This formula was then applied to other areas… and it worked! At one time the finding of an unknown site was a rarity but Selkirk and his team of enthusiasts produced remarkable results in a very short time. Yet the full effects of the Piercebridge Formula are only just starting to be felt, for what is true of Britain must logically apply to the whole Roman Empire. The prospects for further exploration are therefore tremendous and the author goes to great lengths to enlist the aid of his readers, both at home and abroad, in following up leads which will help to uncover further remains. Suspected sites are all named with exact locations and map references so that those with sufficient enthusiasm may continue this fascinating quest. The storm which this book will cause in archaeological circles has barely started, the search has only just begun.”

The Story of the Supremes by Daryl Easlea (£87.00)Publisher: London: V&A Publishing — 2008Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Signed by the Author.[ISBN: 1851775528]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Signed by the author on the title page — dedicated to “Bob” who was the husband of the housekeeper of the Royal Crescent, Bath where Mary Wilson stayed during an exhibition at the Assembly Rooms with the promotional leaflet laid in. Contains: Black & white photographs; Colour photographs; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “An illustrated tribute to one of the most successful musical groups of the 60s, The Story of the Supremes presents the group’s unmistakable style, from the early days when they were known as the Primettes to the glamorous height of their fame in the 60s and 70s. The Supremes were second only to the Beatles in No. 1 hits, and their success also profoundly affected racial perceptions during the time of the Civil Rights movement.

Music journalist Daryl Easlea traces the history of the Supremes through a fascinating and eclectic collection of ephemera — from billboards and posters to album covers and photographs, some of them previously unpublished. The result is a spectacular record of a group that helped define the music of an era.”

From the cover: “Among the many works on the First World War there has been no comprehensive account of the Russian navy’s part in that epic clash of the great powers. This gap is now filled by the present volume, which takes its place as the authoritative record of the Russian fleet’s day-by-day contribution to the war at sea from 1914 through 1917, when the revolutionary Bolshevik government took Russia out of what it saw as a purely imperialistic confrontation.

The story of the tortuously slow growth of the tsarist navy is told against the background of war preparations by Germany, France and England. We learn that through the vision and persistence of a few leaders Russia’s posture both on land, at sea and in the air at the outbreak of the war could inspire a measure of confidence.

The deeds of the Russian navy are recounted on the basis of the three theatres where it operated: the Baltic Sea, the Black Sea and the White Sea and adjoining coastal waters. The sections under these three heads give a year-by-year account of the fighting at sea against the background of the general progress of hostilities, particularly on the land front. The account concludes with the overthrow of the Tsar, the brief transition of Bolshevik rule, and the upheaval these developments produced in the Russian navy, which played a not inconsiderable part in hastening the process.”
