Robo Sapiens: Evolution of a New Species by Peter Menzel & Faith D'Aluisio (£21.00)Publisher: Cambridge, London: The MIT Press — 2000Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0262133822]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Description: Jacket illustration: A face robot from the Hara-Kobayashi laboratory of the Science University of Tokyo. Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “Around the world, scientists and engineers are participating in a high-stakes race to build the first intelligent robot. Many robots already exist — automobile factories are full of them. But the new generation of robots will be something else: smart machines that act ever more like living creatures.

What will happen then? With our prosthetic limbs, titanium hips, and artificial eyes, we are already beginning to resemble our machines. And when we implant chips in our bodies to connect ourselves directly to computers, the likeness will become only more pronounced. Science fiction will have become science fact.

Meanwhile — and equally important — our machines are beginning to resemble us. Robotic spiders, crabs, geckos, and dogs are already spilling from the laboratories. The next steps are to re-create Homo sapiens itself and then go beyond. Robots can already walk, talk, and dance; they can react to human facial expressions and obey verbal commands. When scientists go on to create fully autonomous robots with greater intelligence than human beings, will they be our partners or our rivals? Will it be simply a robotic revolution or a true extension of evolution? Could machines and humankind meld into a single species — Robo sapiens ?

In Robo sapiens, award-winning journalists Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluisio present the next generation of intelligent robots and their makers. Accompanying brilliant photographs of more than a hundred robots are extensive interviews with robotics pioneers, anecdotal field notes with behind-the-scenes information, and easy-to-understand technical data about the machines. Robo sapiens is a field guide to our mechanical future.”

Description: From the cover: “Lisbeth Salander will have her revenge -against the men who tried to kill her, and against the government institutions that nearly succeeded in deliberately destroying her life. As a traumatized victim of the care system, Salander has learned to trust no-one save herself, but this is one war she cannot wage alone. After sustaining appalling gunshot wounds to her head and her shoulder, she is in Intensive Care, and her most dangerous enemy is in the next-door ward.

If she survives, she is set to face murder charges. Officially under police guard, she is allowed contact with only her surgeon or her lawyer. But Mikael Blomkvist, editor at Millennium magazine and Salander’s self-appointed guardian angel, will not give up on this strangely compelling girl. Blomkvist knows he cannot contact her directly. He also knows that, as a world-class computer specialist, Salander just needs the right tools to have the world at her fingertips.

With the covert aid of Blomkvist and his journalists at Millennium, Salander must first prove her innocence. Only then can she unmask the people behind the corrupt and secret manoeuvres that ruined her childhood and remain the rotten core of Swedish society. The survivor of institutionalized abuse and violence, Salander, even in hospital, is spoiling for another fight.”

[ISBN: 9781561711680]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.Description: From the cover: “The country’s most knowledgeable expert on organized crime, William F.

Opposing Richards are the dons of the New York and Chicago mobs who are teaming up to build the luxurious Tahoe Summit Casino: John Gotti, Tony Accardo and Rocko Robustelli. Robustelli is the boss from Chicago whose son Ricky is a star pitcher for the Chicago Cubs. Will the mob control pro baseball through Robustelli? Will Robustelli’s steamy love affair with beautiful Chicago lawyer Connie Constable place her in a position of political power — controlled, bought and paid for by the mob? Richards pursues Robustelli and other mob bosses, consiglieres and capos on a relentless trail of blood, betrayal and heart pounding suspense that leads all the way to Europe where the bosses meet to plot their battle against the FBI—and where Richards and his dedicated crew of FBI agents will face the ultimate showdown against...

My Betters by G. W. [George Walter] Bishop (£18.00)Publisher: Heinemann — 1957Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with heavier fading at the spine, wear to the head of the spine and the top corners with a tape-repaired tear to the foot of the upper panel, lower panel water stained. Price Clipped. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “George Bishop, so long known in the worlds of the theatre and of letters that he may be regarded as a doyen of Fleet Street, has always been interested in others more than in himself. My Betters is therefore a happy, if modest, title for his autobiographical story of the people he has met.

His long span as commentator and critic gives him unequalled experience and authority — as an amateur he acted with Edith Evans before she went on the professional stage; he edited The Era, the “actors’ bible”; was a special correspondent on both The Observer and The Sunday Times, and for the past twenty-five years has been on the staff of The Daily Telegraph, for twenty of those years its Literary Editor.

His memories are as wide and as varied as the world of entertainment itself. They range from a visit to Sibelius in Finland to a shopping expedition in the Strand with all four Marx Brothers, from a tea party with King George V and Queen Mary to a long talk with Charles Chaplin.

George Bishop is the unknown character named Deacon in George Moore’s Conversations in Ebury Street. According to Mr. Moore he was too young to be a Bishop and so he demoted him to the rank of Deacon: as such he takes his place in that brilliant war of words. My Betters contains some remembered conversations in that room in Ebury Street, including one which George Bishop had with the great men a few days before his death.

G.B.S., the Meynells, James Agate, Marie Tempest — these are but a few of the great personalities so intimately drawn and affectionately presented by this shrewd and kindly man in the charming revue he calls My Betters.”

Television and Radio: Everybody's Soapbox by Bruce Parker; Nigel Farrell; (£14.50)Publisher: Blandford Press — 1983Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0713713062]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Top edges of the dust wrapper slightly ruffled. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with cartoons. From the cover: “The chance to appear on a radio or television programme is the opportunity of a lifetime to speak to a mass audience. Yet how many people appreciate the value of such an offer, or really know how to make the most of it? With the expansion of broadcasting in the 1980s there will be more air time available to members of the public in scores of programmes, particularly those put out by regional and local television and radio stations. Nearly everyone has something to gain by a chance to appear on the air: the father searching for his teenage daughter, the secretary of the local drama group which is putting on an unusual play, the harassed mother seeking action about the damp walls of her council house, or the managing director who wants a little publicity for his firm’s award-winning product. Everybody’s Soapbox explains in an entertaining way not only how to use your time on the air effectively but how to go about obtaining it in the first place. The authors take a detailed and often humorous look into what happens behind the scenes of broadcasting. Some of the pitfalls are described, including the ones to avoid when being interviewed. Don Osmond’s cartoons complement the light-hearted but informative text. Much advice is provided, particularly for those who find themselves on the air for the first time. Radio and television techniques are revealed and the jargon is made clear. There is guidance on how to handle an interview and how best to present yourself. You can also find out the right way to deal with the film crew which may arrive at your house.”Notes: Illustrated by Don Osmond. Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

The American Civil War by Ian F. W. Beckett (£12.50)Publisher: Alan Sutton — 1994Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 075090044X]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: 2nd printing. [First Published: 1993] Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs;

From the cover: “The American Civil War was one of the most significant conflicts of the nineteenth century. Many books have been written about it, but never before has such a comprehensive narrative account been told by those who witnessed events. The Times reports were filed by the paper’s correspondents — Antonio Gallenga, Francis Lawley, Charles Mackay and W. H. Russell — whose preconceptions and prejudices are clarified in Dr Beckett’s wide-ranging and scholarly introduction. The reports themselves are linked by a commentary that serves to place them in context, embracing not only the battles and campaigns but also the social and political background to the conflict. A further dimension is added by the inclusion of over sixty illustrations; many of them previously unpublished contemporary photographs, and maps showing the eastern and western theatres of war.”

The Custom House is in some ways a saddening book, with its recurrent misunderstandings between West and East and its picture of people forever straining to rise above their limitations, the missionaries above their spiritual limitations, some of the Japanese above their intellectual limitations and others above the material limitations imposed by overpopulation and poverty. Yet since the book is like life in that it is never solely tragic, it flashes throughout its length with passages of delightful wit and humour.”Notes: Size: 8" x 5¼".

The Green Stick by Malcolm Muggeridge (£11.50)Publisher: Collins — 1972Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0002151197]Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges. Gently faded at the spine. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper. Price Clipped. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Volume I in the series. From the cover: “In Chronicles of Wasted Time Malcolm Muggeridge sets out to provide an account of his life and times; the two being, for so inveterate a journalist and communicator, closely inter-related. For half a century past he has managed to keep afloat on a fast-flowing river of words, navigating in a great variety of craft, from majestic liners like the Manchester Guardian, the Daily Telegraph and the BBC, to cockleshells like the New Statesman and the old Sunday Pictorial, not to mention that rare old paddle-steamer Punch. Looking back, he can say with the Abbe Sieves that he survived. Chronicles of Wasted Time is the story of his survival, along with what he demolished, which is much, and what he has salvaged, which is everything. This first volume ends in 1933, when he is thirty, and has just returned from Moscow after doing a stint there as Manchester Guardian correspondent. The title, The Green Stick, is taken from a fancy of Tolstoy’s that somewhere, buried underground, if you can but find it, is a Green Stick with the secret of everlasting happiness carved upon it.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Were they, and are they today, able to dictate events and bring down governments? What is the power of the press? Louis Heren, with his wealth of inside knowledge on the subject, recounts the incidents that both inflated their influence and exposed their limitations, leading to the rise and fall of famous newspaper titles and proprietors all over the English-speaking world.

A Good-looking Corpse by Mike Nicol (£10.50)Publisher: Secker & Warburg — 1991Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0436309866]Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Heavily faded at the spine of the dust wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper. Edges of the textblock heavily tanned, leaves tanned but less so.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The 1950s in South Africa was a time of optimism and hope that ended tragically with the massacre at Sharpeville. This book is about those years as seen through the microcosm of Drum, an illustrated magazine produced in Johannesburg for black readers. It is a record of naivety, optimism, frustration, defiance, courage, dancing, drink, jazz, gangsters, exile and death.

Although owned and edited by whites, Drum employed a group of black writers who have since become legends. The Drum writers — Henry Nxumalo, Can Themba, Bloke Modisane, Todd Matshikiza, Casey Motsisi — lived by the precept ‘Live fast, die young, and have a good-looking corpse’. In highly charged prose, these writers (joined later by Lewis Nkosi and Nat Nakasa) surveyed the world of the townships — the illegal drinking dens, the gangsters, the witchdoctors, the jazzmen, the boxers — and wrote stunning investigative journalism, exposing the realities of apartheid and charting the growing resistance movement.

Many of them fulfilled their ambition, dying from drink or violence or despair. A Good-Looking Corpse is their memorial, reproducing their finest journalism and recalling in the words of their friends and colleagues — including Anthony Sampson (who edited Drum), Nadine Gordimer, Walter Sisulu, Es’kia Mphahlele and Trevor Huddleston -their struggles, their triumphs and their tragedies. In Drum, and in the lives of these men, is revealed the story of South Africa in a decade when hope turned to bitter disillusionment.”

A Place for Us by Nicholas Gage (£10.50)Publisher: Bantam Press — 1990Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0593015150]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Heavily faded at the spine of the dust wrapper, more lightly so to the upper panel. Lower panel creased at the foot. Price Clipped. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “In 1984 the Royal Society of Literature awarded the Heinemann prize for the best book of the year to Nicholas Gage’s Eleni — the true story of how his mother died to save her children during the Greek Civil War. Eleni has sold more than two million copies in fourteen languages and received international acclaim.

A Place For Us tells what happened to Eleni’s children after they escaped from their Greek mountain village. Nick Gage was nine years old in 1949 when he and three of his sisters boarded a ship to America to meet the father they had never known. Their fourth sister, fifteen years old, had disappeared, taken behind the Iron Curtain by the guerrillas who killed their mother.

A Place For Us is a moving family saga, sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes hilarious, but ultimately triumphant as Eleni’s children adjust to a new country and to a father who at fifty-six finds himself a single parent. He must guard his daughters’ virtue and make peace with a young son full of grief and hostility towards this strange American father. At the same time the children must fit in to the startling new lifestyle of the United States while honouring the rules and customs of the world they left behind. Gage tells of struggles and celebrations, doomed romances and arranged marriages, births and deaths, in a tale of a family bound together by traditions and by love. In the powerful feelings it evokes, A Place For Us is the story of every person who has ever been uprooted and plunged into a new life, and of every child who has felt conflicting emotions for a parent. In both its power and its eloquence, it is a worthy successor to Eleni,”

Good Times, Bad Times by Harold Evans (£10.50)Publisher: Weidenfeld & Nicholson — 1983Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0297782959]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper, tanned and creased along the spine and front flap. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs [16pp];

From the cover: “Harold Evans, the renowned Editor of The Sunday Times and The Times, has written his own inside story of fifteen years at the heart of two of the world’s greatest newspapers. His sensational resignation from The Times only a year after Rupert Murdoch had bought the paper is explained for the first time. It is a remarkable account of journalism and politics, of idealism and intrigue. He describes The Sunday Times dramas of investigative journalism and his battles with government, corporations and the law. He tells the behind-the-scenes stories of the international cause celebre of the Thalidomide campaign, of the exposure of Kim Philby as a Soviet spy, the publication of the Crossman Diaries in defiance of the Official Secrets Act, and how the truth was learned about the world’s biggest air crash. He shows how Murdoch, a publishing tycoon on three continents, succeeded in taking over Times Newspapers and how Margaret Thatcher’s government cleared the way for him to do so.

He candidly reveals the internal and external subterfuges and pressures, both political and financial, during his turbulent period at The Times; he captures the excitement and colour of daily journalism; and he examines central issues of the freedom of the press. Lord Denning, the eminent British judge, once described Harold Evans as the most distinguished editor and journalist of our time, who has won great victories for the freedom of the press.”

Longman Companion to Twentieth Century Literature by A. C. [Alfred Charles] Ward (£10.50)Publisher: Longman — 1970Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0582328039]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges. Price Clipped. Errata slip pasted to the reverse of the title page. Edges of the text block lightly tanned.Description: From the cover: “This Companion is designed as much for personal possession as a guide to home reading as for consultation in schools and colleges, public and institutional libraries, offices, and by journalists and other professional workers.

Arranged alphabetically throughout and fully cross-referenced, the contents comprise:
•Biographical and bibliographical entries on the great and many lesser writers of the present century, mainly English and Scottish but including also those Commonwealth (Australian, Canadian, Caribbean, New Zealand), African, American, French, German, Spanish, and Russian writers with an international reputation whose books have appeared in English editions.
• Articles on literary categories: Autobiography, Biography, Criticism, Drama, Essays, Fiction, Poetry. Summaries of outstanding novels, plays, and other literary works.
• Fictional characters described and related to the books or plays in which they appear. Authors’ pseudonyms.
• Literary terms, topical phrases, and references and allusions to persons, institutions, and matters likely to arouse curiosity in the course of general reading.
• Advice for authors on the preparation and publication of manuscripts.
• Articles on Censorship, Copyright, Literary Societies, and other organizations.
• Each biographical entry appears under the writer’s pseudonym or preferred name, immediately followed by the full birthname and cross-referenced under the surname, thus enabling any author to be traced quickly in library and other catalogues.

Many authors are included whose works have given widespread pleasure, as well as those intellectually exacting and academically approved, and a few exceptions are made to the principle that only authors who lived into the present century qualify for inclusion. For example, though Gerard Manley Hopkins died in 1889 his work is of twentieth century adoption. Where an author’s works were substantially divided between this century and the last, only those published since 1900/1901 are included: Thomas Hardy’s poetry is noted but not his fiction, and only the final novels of Henry James. A few isolated works of earlier date appear if they have some topical interest.”

Put the Knife in Gently: Memoirs of a Life with Legends by Donald Zec (£10.50)Publisher: London: Robson Books — 2003Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1861056974]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs;

From the cover: “Kirk Douglas once implored Donald Zee to ‘put the knife in gently’ — a variant on Hollywood’s dictum: ‘I don’t care what you say, just spell the name right’. Donald Zee’s celebrated entertainment column appeared in the Daily Mirror for more than twenty years and he spent much of that time in Hollywood. He developed close friendships with many of the celebrities of the fifties, sixties and seventies and became one of the few journalists they trusted.

Put the Knife in Gently is a witty and revealing look at Zee’s experiences with Hollywood’s legends. Sailing with Humphrey Bogart on his yacht the Santana; encountering Gary Grant in his hotel room as he washed his dainty ladies’ smalls (a traveller’s tip, not a fetish); having coffee with Marilyn Monroe at her apartment; experiencing the spectacle of Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor in full flow; joining John and Yoko on the bed during their honeymoon protest — all this and much more is recounted with humour, insight and affection.

Zee’s sharp observation penetrates the hype upon which Hollywood is built and lays bare the real people behind the facades. Put the Knife in Gently is hugely entertaining and a compelling read for anyone interested in Hollywood and the film legends of the twentieth century.”

DJ slightly ruffled at the edges with a faint stain to the top ½" of the lower panel.Description: 2nd impression. [First Edition: 1996]

From the cover: “In a style both crisp and engaging he writes of his wrestling-match with Dame Edith Sitwell, his undergraduate assault on the whole of the American nation via Time Magazine, his run-ins with politicians when he was presenting the Today programme, his hilarious encounters with film stars – Jayne Mansfield, Bette Davis, David Niven, Robert Mitchum and many others – and his disastrous appearance as an actor with John Osborne and Jill Bennett, live, on BBC2. Such droll set-pieces are combined with evocative excursions into the world of literature in the company of Ezra Pound, W. H. Auden, J. B. Priestley and Vladimir Nabokov. Each sequence is alight with the irony and wit for which the founder of Points of View, the creator of Stop the Week, and the presenter of Call My Bluff and Brain of Britain has for so long been celebrated.”

Cameron in the Guardian 1974-1984 by James Cameron (£9.50)Publisher: Hutchinson — 1986Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0091627109]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Heavily faded at the spine of the dust wrapper. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise. Description: A Later Printing.

From the cover: “When James Cameron died in January 1985, Britain not only lost its most distinguished living journalist, but a great age of newspaper writing came to an end — the age of the foreign correspondent. In the course of his career, working for newspapers and also for television, Cameron covered the end of the war in Europe, the atomic tests at Bikini Atoll, and the Korean and Vietnam wars. He reported from America, India and Israel at crucial moments in their history. And few events, whether at home or abroad, whether of major political importance or minor but telling detail, escaped his shrewd eye and his humorous, committed pen.

For the last ten years of his life James Cameron contributed columns to the Guardian , and these display him at his ironical, compassionate, angry best. They have been selected by Martin Woollacott and arranged according to subject-matter, and chronologically within each subject. They are a delight to read, and a moving record of a great journalist.”

Devil's advocate by John Humphrys (£9.50)Publisher: Hutchinson — 1999Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 009180048X]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. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “John Humphrys has been a journalist for forty years — starting as a cub reporter on a tiny weekly newspaper and ending as one of the most respected broadcasters of his generation. He uses his experience to set in context the changes that have taken place in Britain over those years and to ask whether we, as a nation, are happy with the result. In many ways, he believes, we are not.

We have gained a great deal — we are much better off, much more tolerant — but Humphrys senses a deep unease. In place of a world in which there were many different influences telling us what life was all about, and what living a good life might involve, we now have a Britain in which a single voice is dominant and threatens to drown out other voices and other messages. That voice is consumer populism.

Its strength derives not just from the increasing commercialisation of our lives, but also from the media, which is itself under more and more pressure. Some of the effects include a coarsening of the fabric of daily life; an increasing domination of commercial values at the expense of all others; a growing thoughtlessness and even hysteria in public debate. We see our children losing their innocence at an ever earlier age and wonder why. We confuse genuine caring with wearing a ribbon.

John Humphrys has spent his working life at the ringside of history. In pursuit of the truth behind the headlines he speaks to prime ministers, prelates and to ordinary people. Devil’s Advocate is his first book. It asks some very awkward questions. It also issues a challenge — if we aren’t happy with the way things are in Britain today, what are we going to do about it?”

F/A-18 Hornet by Bill Gunston (£9.50)Publisher: Ian Allan — 1985Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 071101485X]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine of the dust wrapper. Edges of the text block lightly tanned.Description: No. 22 in the series. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Outwardly the F/A-18 programme is a straightforward and successful one: some journalists have even written as if the Hornet is the greatest fighter there has ever been — which it possibly is.

Under the surface one finds many unusual features. The Hornet had its genesis in the Northrop YF-17, a lightweight land-based fighter. In turning it into the F/A-18, a carrier-based multi-role aircraft, almost every structural part was changed and the result is a larger aircraft, with different engines, totally new capabilities and more than doubled gross weight. Yet the casual observer, walking round the two aircraft, might be forgiven for saying their outward appearance looked almost identical.

Behind this lies much argument, and indeed acrimony. How did a Northrop aeroplane turn into a McDonnell Douglas aeroplane? Which company invented the Hornet? These may seem pointless and rather futile questions, but the author has served as an expert witness in one of the biggest industrial lawsuits in history, which so far has had curiously little exposure in the normally alert US media, and which was triggered off by the inadequacy of the deal the two companies actually struck. Fortunately they still, in between briefing the lawyers, continued building Hornets.”

Top edges of text block tanned.Description: From the cover: “Revealing the struggles and gambles behind his seemingly unimpeded success, his often stormy relationship with the BBC; combining trenchant opinions and challenging ideas with a wealth of hilarious anecdotes, Sir Robin tells us how the hard-hitting bespectacled reporter of the fifties became a television superstar. From his boyhood, army service, Oxford years and his experience as a barrister, Sir Robin goes on to describe how he won his way into television, and made his name, as a newscaster and interviewer, in the newly-founded ITN. He explains why he stood as a parliamentary candidate, and how he came to join the celebrated team of reporters on Panorama, then the flagship of BBC Television’s journalistic fleet. Sir Robin, it has been said, ‘has occupied a place on the political stage longer than anyone but the Sovereign herself’. Here, he recalls reporting the momentous Suez parliamentary debates, and his historic interview with Egypt’s President Nasser. He remembers his controversial role at the centre of television’s coverage of eight general elections. And, for the first time, gives his unique personal reminiscences of the six Prime Ministers — Macmillan, Home, Wilson, Heath, Callaghan and Thatcher — that he has interviewed.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5½".

In and Out of the Box by Robert Dougall (£9.50)Publisher: The Harvill Press — 1974Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 000272703X]Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper with a short closed tear to the head of the lower panel. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank has been over-penned. Price Clipped. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “There are few people in Britain to whom Robert Dougall’s face and voice are not as well known as those of a trusted family friend. For the past sixteen years he has been appearing regularly on BBC television news and before that was a top newsreader on radio. His broadcasting career began as a pioneer announcer in the BBC Empire Service and when war came he transferred to work as a reporter during the blitz. There followed a three year spell in the Navy, half of which he spent in Kola Inlet at the Arctic end of the Russian convoy route.

Now, we meet the man behind the face. Robert Dougall grew up in the Thirties — a time of great social and financial inequality — when Britain had simultaneously hunger marches and ‘deb’ dances. His questioning, compassionate mind led him to think perhaps the Russian revolutionary experiment might hold an answer for this country. During the war the opportunity unexpectedly arose for him to see something of the Soviet system but, like so many people over the years, he returned disillusioned. We share his experiences inside Stalin’s Russia and later follow him on broadcasting assignments to Singapore and Kenya. Married for twenty-five years to a girl he first auditioned in the European Service of the BBC, he emphasises the value of a happy, stable relationship in our unsettled times.

Living close to Hampstead Heath and spending much of his leisure in Suffolk he has developed a great interest in bird-life and for the past three years has served as President of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds — the largest conservation body in the country.

This candid self-portrait is Robert Dougal’s first book and we publish it exactly as he wrote it. He says it is a ‘fly-on-the-wall’ view of British broadcasting through forty of its fifty memorable years.

We feel his frank, behind-the-scenes account of the most famous broadcasting organisation in the world makes this a book to value.”

Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with the expected associated chafing to the dust wrapper.Description: A Later Printing. Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “Jeremy Clarkson found fame and fortune at the wheel of trailblazing BBC motoring series Top Gear. With its worldwide audience of over 250 million viewers, the show has garnered him praise and condemnation in equal measure for his forthright views on cyclists, environmentalists and road-safety campaigners. From causing traffic chaos on the roads of London to fisticuffs with Piers Morgan, driving ‘fast and recklessly’ through the Lincolnshire countryside — an area with one of the worst road death rates in Europe — to being on the receiving end of a meringue pie when he collected an honorary degree from Brunel University, Clarkson has lived life at breakneck speed. In this must-read biography for any Clarkson fan, his frank views and hilariously candid anecdotes appear alongside the vivid details of his remarkable life story.”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.”

Landscapes & Memories: An Intermittent Autobiography by John Prebble (£9.50)Publisher: HarperCollins — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0002151847]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper, more heavily at the top corners of both panels. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs;

From the cover: “No living writer is more responsible for shaping our picture of Scotland and its past than John Prebble. With his great trilogy, The Highland Clearances, Glencoe and Culloden, he has brought alive some of the central, tragic episodes in Scottish history with an immediacy that their readers will never forget.

His new book, Landscapes and Memories, is as close as Prebble will ever come to writing an autobiography. It moves backwards and forwards, like memory itself, between the distant and the recent past, between Prebble’s recollections of his own life and of the lives and history he has written about.

Three times and places provide his focus. Like the Highlanders a century before him, whose passage to the New World he chronicled, Prebble emigrated with his parents to Canada, where they hoped to build a new life on the great prairies. Many years later, in 1945, he was a soldier in Germany looking at first hand on the horrors and absurdities of war. Above all, when afterwards he found his career as a writer, it was Scotland, looking on her landscape, thinking about her history and meeting her people, that gave him inspiration.

It is the continuity between the past and present which fascinates Prebble, and which he is able to draw out in the course of his book: the perennial qualities — the squalor, loneliness, brutality as well as the occasional exhilaration — of the military experience; the cruelty over the centuries of the oppressors of native peoples, whether Highland crofters or Plains Indians; the perpetual presence of landscape — its beauty but also its often tyrannical impact on the individual. As Prebble’s mind roams over the Scottish landscape and down the paths where memory leads him, the reader gradually realizes how inseparable past and present have become.

Gradually, too, the personality of the author emerges: meditative, romantic, dignified, melancholic and radical. This is not a conventional autobiography, and not a book to be rushed; but it reveals, in a completely original way, a man infinitely worth getting to know.”

Dustwrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Text complete, clean and tight. A nice copy.Description: From the cover: “Los Angeles Times reporter Eve Diamond has spent the day at LAX shadowing a U.S. Customs Supervisor who’s got his eye on an incoming flight from Beijing via Seoul and Tokyo, The flight’s packed with the usual mass of humanity, ranging from the elegant Asian woman in the raspberry silk suit who emerges from first class carrying a tired toddler, to the scruffy students who have spent the long flight in economy,

Suddenly, shots ring out. Three people are dead, including the silk-clad woman. The man who was booked on the flight as the dead woman’s husband is missing. And the sad little toddler is left behind.

Who is this child? Her passport says she’s Japanese, but she doesn’t seem to understand the language. Was the dead woman really her mother? Why has the child made five transpacific flights in one year? And why do Customs and Immigration whisk her immediately into hiding?

Eve knows she must uncover the answers, even though it means putting herself at risk. Her search takes her from LA.’s sleazy hotels and cybercafés to the upscale milieu of trendy restaurants and high-powered human-rights lawyers, Nothing is quite what it appears to be, and nobody seems to want Eve to find the child.

Last Lullaby is a richly nuanced crime novel from a superbly gifted author who asks important questions and never settles for the superficial answer, Her powerful prose and passion for her native city shine through on every page.”

Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges with a small nick to the leading edge of the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “For nearly forty years, one figure has towered over his contemporaries in Fleet Street. As a national newspaper editor his success has been phenomenal, his influence on the country’s highest decision-makers profound, his contribution to journalism unequalled. As an uncompromising and controversial columnist, he has attracted a huge and intensely loyal readership spanning all ages, all classes and all persuasions. He is, of course, John Junor. Now this eminent newspaperman looks back over a career that has brought him into the closest touch with princesses and prime ministers, with politicians, press barons and nabobs, with the common and the uncommon man; a career in which he has not only reported and commented on great events, but played a part in them too, and at their very centre. John Junor’s memoirs are no mere nostalgic backward glance at Fleet Street. They are a brilliant, often surprising and always compelling record by a true insider in the hall of fame. This is a book that will provide a wealth of source material for historians as well as an absorbing read for anyone who has ever opened a newspaper.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".
