Forgotten Nurse by Fern Shepard [Florence Stonebraker] (£103.00)Publisher: Robert Hale — 1970Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition.

Description: From the cover: “Brenda Gregory, a nurse, was driving a drugged woman patient to the hospital when their car crashed over a cliff, the patient died in flames which burned her beyond recognition, and Brenda, surviving, suffered injuries which required plastic surgery to her face and wiped out all memory of the past. Gradually she recovered in the confines of Stop-Over House, a convalescent home in a California beach, town, and even began nursing again there. Then suddenly her memory returned, and she found she had mistakenly been identified as the dead woman and was unable to prove her true identity. Furthermore, a certain quack psychiatrist who was interested in keeping her dead so she could not reveal what she knew about him, was willing to swear to the lie and declare her a mental case.”Notes: Jacket designed by Colin Andrews.

The Handyman In The Home: In 3 Volumes by Edited by Arthur W. Judge (£40.00)Publisher: Caxton Publishing Company — 1956Binding: Hardback Condition: Very Good. Pages lightly age-tanned otherwise a pleasant set.Description: September Reprint of the 2nd Edition. [First: 1930] Illustrated with black and white photographs & diagrams. From the preface: “As its title indicates, this work has been prepared expressly for the practical handyman desirous of undertaking a wide variety of jobs connected with the home, garden, garage and small workshop, including not only the domestic repairs and renovations that become necessary from time to time but also useful improvements and additions to the home and its contents. The keen home dweller, with a knowledge of the use of the simple tools and materials described in these volumes, can not only tackle most household repairs and additions expeditiously, but also avoid a good deal of expense. Apart from these considerations, there is always the satisfaction associated with the completion of a job that would otherwise have meant calling in someone else for the purpose. In addition to the extensive range of household repairs, fittings, furniture and other relevant items dealt with in this work, there are also a number of sections, including those on homecrafts, hobbies, sports accessories, outdoor constructions, etc., which will be found both useful and profitable to the handyman and housewife. Since many of the articles in these volumes deal with woodwork repairs and new constructions, it was considered desirable to include a comprehensive section, written by a well-known expert in such matters, on the subject of carpentry and woodworking tools, so that the reader who is not very well acquainted with the use of the latter can improve both his knowledge and experience.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 7".

Accident and Emergency Radiology: A Survival Guide by Nigel Raby, Laurence Berman & Gerald de Lacey (£28.00)Publisher: W. B. Saunders Company — 1999Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0702019054]Condition: Near Fine. Description: A Later Printing. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Diagrams;

From the cover: “Junior doctors in the Accident and Emergency Department will find this an invaluable pocket book to assist them when assessing radiographs. It provides a concise and systematic approach whereby most radiographic abnormalities are readily and easily detected.

This book concentrates on radiological abnormalities which are significant, but frequently overlooked by the inexperienced doctor, who may have to make a clinical decision without the help of a radiologist. The majority of chapters follow a similar template and describe:
  • normal and relevant radiological anatomy
  • a systematic scheme for viewing the radiographs
  • common diagnostic pitfalls and sources of error
The book is based on a course developed over the many years that the authors have been teaching radiology to non-radiologists. Whilst it has been written primarily for the Accident and Emergency junior doctor, it also offers the trainee radiologist and orthopaedic surgeon an excellent primer of accident and emergency radiology.”

The Problem of Crime by John Muncie; Eugene Mclaughlin; (£24.00)Publisher: Sage — 2002Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0761969713]Condition: Near Fine.Description: This second edition of The Problem of Crime offers a comprehensive analysis of some of the most important developments in the study of crime.

The book also emphasizes the necessity of studying the staging and representation of crime in the news media and popular culture. In doing so, the book highlights the ways that criminologists are currently challenging and reformulating the concept of crime.

Raging Bull: The Autobiography of the England Rugby Legend by Phil Vickery with Alison Kervin (£18.00)Publisher: HarperSport — 2010Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 9780007354214]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “Raging Bull is the eagerly-awaited autobiography of Phil Vickery, the iconic tight-head prop’s own incredible story and the tale of a true legend of rugby Union.

Vickery is a warrior — a tough, no-nonsense player who is as fearless arid uncompromising on the pitch as he is a great raconteur off it. His career spans amateurism and professionalism, and the journey starts in the Cornish countryside and ends in two World Cup finals and two tours with the British and Irish Lions.

Vickery is a hugely passionate player. He sports a tattoo which announces ‘I’ll fight you to the death’, and has overcome serious injuries (including eight operations) in a career of stunning highs and devastating lows. He plays his sport in the best traditions of rugby and he is a story-teller par excellence.

Raging Bull will transport readers to the England front row in a Six Nations clash, to the changing room in a Lions Test, and to the bars of many an amateur rugby club. It will remind fans what rugby is really all about — the fun and camaraderie, and the intensity and commitment, as the former herdsman turned England and Lions star takes you to the heart and soul of the sport he loves.”

Forward For England by Bobby Charlton (£14.50)Publisher: Pelham Books — 1967Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good+ — in Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper, minor loss at the spine ends and a 1" closed tear to the foot of the lower panel. Gently faded at the spine of the dust wrapper. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “As a boy he had one ambition, to be a professional footballer and to play for England. He achieved not only this boyhood ambition but the footballer’s dream and the final accolade when England won the World Cup at Wembley on July 30th, 1966. From the coal-mining village of Ashington to becoming one of the greatest forwards England has ever produced has been a long, hard road and the journey makes a deeply compelling story. He rose to fame on the wave of sentiment which swept Europe following the tragic air disaster at Munich in 1958… a disaster which decimated the Manchester United team which had been so carefully moulded by Matt Busby. Since then Bobby has never faltered. He tells, with the help of Neil Burden-Smith, of his life, thoughts, of Manchester United, of three World Cups and what it was like to wear England’s white shirt and play with and against some of the greatest footballers the world has ever seen. He also describes in detail those feverish weeks last summer when the World Cup competition gripped the hearts and imaginations of people all over the world.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

Ashes in the Mouth: The Story of the Bodyline Tour of 1932-33 by Ronald Mason (£13.00)Publisher: The Hambledon Press — 1982Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0907628311]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine of the dust wrapper, a little rubbed at the edges. Price Clipped. Leans slightly. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs;

From the cover: “The Bodyline Tour to Australia in 1932-33 has a strong claim to have been the most dramatic Test series in the History of Cricket. England under the ruthless captaincy of Douglas Jardine and including Herbert Sutcliffe and Wally Hammond in their number, brought one of the greatest of all fast bowlers, Harold Larwood, to try and contain the most prolific batsman the game has ever known, Donald Bradman, by bowling leg theory or Bodyline. The harsh choice facing the Australian players, ringed on the leg side by fielders, was to play the ball and risk being caught or to leave it and risk it bowling or hitting them. The Third Test at Adelaide and the injuries caused there to Woodfull and Oldfield shook the cricketing world and threatened English-Australian relations. Jardine’s plan achieved its aim: Bradman was contained and England won the series — but at a cost that is still debated.

Ronald Mason, whose previous books have won him a high reputation amongst cricket writers and include biographies of Hobbs and Hammond, has used the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the tour to give a judicious and balanced account of what actually happened: why Bodyline was adopted; what it involved in practice; its impact at the time; and whether it can now be justified. This is a thrilling story splendidly told.”

New Parents: A Guide to Pregnancy, Baby and Child Care for Today’s Mothers and Fathers by Edited by Dr. David Harvey (£10.50)Publisher: Hamlyn — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0600561615]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. Dust wrapper a little age-toned but not unpleasant.Description: From the cover: “For today’s parents, the wonderful experience of bringing a baby into the world can often be spoiled by the anxieties and frustrations of coping with modern approaches to childbirth. High technology in our hospitals has produced a strong reaction from those who fear that childbirth is being dehumanized, while theories behind such important issues as breastfeeding, foetal health and post-natal depression seem to change with alarming regularity. It is small wonder that many new parents are both concerned and bewildered, and this book has been written both to inform and reassure, so that mothers and fathers on the threshold of such a momentous change to their lives remain in full command of their rapidly changing circumstances. Covering pregnancy, childbirth and childcare up to the age of five, New Parents is an essential work of reference for everyone concerned about how their baby is born and how it will grow and develop in the crucial years of early childhood. Chapters deal with every aspect, physiological and emotional, from antenatal care and the delivery itself to cleaning, bathing, nappy changing and potty training. Separate chapters deal with problem pregnancies, intensive care for newborn babies, and older children with special needs. There is also full information on pre-school development, from baby to toddler to child, while a section on the sick child covers safety and accident prevention in the home, positive health care and a full breakdown of common ailments in babies and young children, together with the appropriate steps to cope with them.”Notes: Size: 10¾" x 7½".

From the cover: “In this first part of Sir Bobby’s remarkable autobiography he describes his early life growing up in a tight-knit mining community in the north-east of England and charts his extraordinary career at Manchester United. Charlton is United through and through. A member of the original ‘Busby Babes’, Sir Bobby devoted his career to the club. He won everything the game had to offer, played alongside some of the greats such as Best and Law and, on a snow-covered runway in Munich in February 1958, was involved in arguably the most shocking football tragedy of all time. With his beloved Reds, Charlton tasted FA Cup victory in the emotional final of 1963, won three First Division championships and in 1968 reached the pinnacle of club success, by defeating Benfica in the European Cup final. Inevitably, such highs were balanced with no less dramatic lows — the 1957 European Cup semi-final, the highly charged 1958 FA Cup loss only weeks after Munich, and the 1969 European Cup defeat by Milan.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Gently bruised at head & tail of spine and corners. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Edges of the textblock lightly tanned.Description: Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs;

From the cover: “As a boy he had one ambition, to be a professional footballer and to play for England. He achieved not only this boyhood ambition but the footballer’s dream and the final accolade when England won the World Cup at Wembley on July 30th, 1966. From the coal-mining village of Ashington to becoming one of the greatest forwards England has ever produced has been a long, hard road and the journey makes a deeply compelling story. He rose to fame on the wave of sentiment which swept Europe following the tragic air disaster at Munich in 1958… a disaster which decimated the Manchester United team which had been so carefully moulded by Matt Busby. Since then Bobby has never faltered. He tells, with the help of Neil Burden-Smith, of his life, thoughts, of Manchester United, of three World Cups and what it was like to wear England’s white shirt and play with and against some of the greatest footballers the world has ever seen. He also describes in detail those feverish weeks last summer when the World Cup competition gripped the hearts and imaginations of people all over the world.”

Home From War: How Love Conquered the Horrors of a Soldier's Afghan Nightmare by Martyn & Michelle Compton with Marnie Summerfield Smith (£9.50)Publisher: Mainstream Publishing — 2009Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1845964500]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Leans slightly otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “Home From War is a powerful and moving story of incredible courage on the battlefield and unbounded love on the home front.

Lance Corporal Martyn Compton’s life was changed beyond recognition when he was blown up in a Taliban ambush that killed three of his colleagues. His survival was described as a miracle, as he suffered third-degree burns to 75 per cent of his body and had to be brought back to life after he stopped breathing. On his return to Britain, he was sedated for three months and endured countless operations.

But he did not have to face this gruelling ordeal alone. From the moment she heard of his near-fatal wounds, Martyn’s fiancée Michelle Clifford refused to leave his side and found an inner strength to help them both face a future so different to the one they had previously dreamed of. During Martyn’s treatment, Michelle read to him, played him their favourite songs and decorated his room with pictures of friends, family and images of the wedding venue she’d booked to give Martyn a goal to work towards. She also kept a diary, written in the form of letters to Martyn, in which she revealed her innermost thoughts and emotions.

Home From War gives a rare insight into the story behind the headlines when soldiers die or are injured and highlights the incredible effort that goes into bringing survivors home. Above all, it is the inspirational story of how love can heal.”

This book is a mixture of forthright views on the game and those involved in it, compelling accounts of what it is like behind the scenes in cricket at the highest level, and hilarious stories, for which Dickie is so well known.”Tags: venkataraghavan gloucestershire nottinghamshire leicestershire worcestershire martyn-jenkins championships international o'shaughnessy championship javedmiandad intimidatory warwickshire all-rounder scarborough w-captaincy balderstone bicentenial illingworth association documentary preparation christopher personality churchgoing fairbrother rimmington azharuddin sidebottom livingston journalism richardson groundsmen vishwanath prudential lancashire ramprakash fredericks headingley electronic rutherford tournament champion's wooldridge birkenshaw recreation derbyshire groundsman retirement staincross d'oliveira

Playing Days by Tony Lewis (£9.50)Publisher: Stanley Paul — 1985Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0091622808]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “A cricket autobiography that reads like a novel is a rare treat, but then, as Tony Lewis says, he fluttered into the golden web of Neville Cardus at the age of twelve and never tried to escape. His Playing Days have been unusual, to say the least. A double Cambridge Blue thinking of a future as a professional violinist, he bequeathed his front teeth to a rugby pitch at nineteen, and rose through the ranks of cricket to captain Glamorgan and England with romantic optimism. He had played for his county as a schoolboy prodigy — Welsh, fiercely determined and out first ball — and he maintained his independence as an amateur and a gentleman by his skills as a freelance writer and broadcaster. Top scorer in the country in 1966, Tony Lewis nevertheless viewed the game from above and below, suffering dismal slumps and tormented by knee injuries, a thinking young man surrounded by gods. Here are his memories of Glamorgan: of leading them to their Championship triumph in 1969, and of the black day when Roger Davis, felled at short square leg, lay apparently lifeless on the pitch. Memories of skippering the MCC as a novitiate in his new England sweater in India and Pakistan in 1972/3: of the shocking poverty, the blinding sun, the dodgy umpiring and the death threat by the Black September movement just months after the Munich Olympics. Memories of music, of Wales, the RAF, playing for the Lord’s Taverners and I Zingari, and the treasured characters of the game, all vividly captured with the writer’s eye for feeling and detail. Like the sight of A. R. Lewis winding up to take 3 for 18 at Neath with his little leg spinners, Playing Days will delight cricket-lovers everywhere with its poetic charm.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

Radiations And Living Cells: An Introduction to Radiation Biology, in Which the Action of Penetrating Radiations on the Living Cell Is Described, With Special Reference to the Effect on Cell Division in Human Tissues by F. G. [Frederick Gordon] Spear (£9.50)Publisher: Chapman & Hall — 1953Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with heaving fading at the spine and many small nicks and chips, heavy creasing and some loss to the head of the lower panel. Price Clipped. Spine of the book faded, as are the margins of both the boards. Leans. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs & diagrams. From the cover: “This book is a first attempt to give, from the experimental angle, a concise account of the effect of penetrating radiation on normal and diseased tissues in man. It is written for those who are interested in the ever widening frontier between physics and biology, particularly that part of the frontier concerned with medical physics and radiation biology. It collects information at present widely scattered over specialist literature, much of which is not easily accessible to the ordinary reader.

Each section of the book begins with a short description of an unirradiated tissue for comparison with the changes brought about by exposure to penetrating rays. In simple language, it gives some account of what is known about the effects of penetrating radiation on the cells composing human tissues, of how information of this kind of biological reaction is being acquired and a few of the experimental methods that are in use for increasing knowledge in this field of science.”

The Bonus of Laughter by Leslie Crowther; Jean Crowther; (£9.50)Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton — 1994Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 034062468X]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the spine ends and corners with commensurate ruffling to the dustwrapper. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “A serious car accident in 1992 left Leslie Crowther with less than a fifty per cent chance of survival. Suffering major head injuries he spent seventeen days in a coma and only intricate surgery, nursing skill and the devotion of his family could bring him back. His recovery has been close to miraculous. Now just two years on he looks back on a life which has never been short of incident in this warm, witty, sometimes dark yet wonderfully honest autobiography. Leslie was always destined for a career in entertainment. From drama school he worked his way through theatre, variety and radio until his television breakthrough arrived with the children’s all-time favourite Crackerjack. With regular appearances, too, on The Black & White Minstrel Show, Leslie was barely off our screens. A firm favourite, he has remained that way ever since, with more recent successes including The Price is Right and Stars in Their Eyes. Yet behind the scenes, as Leslie vividly describes, he was fighting a long battle against alcoholism which came close to ruining his life and culminated in a period at Clouds House Treatment Centre in 1989.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".
