To Find A Golden Pony by Amanda Gavin [Clodagh Micaela Gibson Jarvie] (£278.00)Publisher: J. M. Dent & Sons — 1965Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the spine ends and corners with corresponding grazing to the dustwrapper. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Text complete, clean and tight. A pleasant copy of an uncommon title. Description: From the cover: “This is a pony book with a difference. It deals sensitively with a young girl’s companionship with animals, and how she learns to manage them while at the same time developing self-reliance during a period of delicate readjustment. Jo Garrett is five when her mother dies, and her father wisely sends her away from his Suffolk farm to live with cousins in Sussex. So, until she is ten, she comes under the spell of ponies, caring for them as well as riding them. She then returns to the farm, and her father is pleased to notice what a self-confident child she has become, with definite ideas of her own as to what she wants from life. Jo’s personality is also contrasted with all the others in the story — both human and animal — who come fully alive as individuals in this entertaining account of country life. Finally, Jo’s slow adjustment to the idea of her father’s remarriage is described with understanding and insight..”Notes: Jacket designed by Elisabeth Grant. Illustrated by Elisabeth Grant.

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.”

From the cover: “It must be all true! And don’t leave out anything!

It was to meet this demand of a youthful but exacting audience that the author first told the story of Jock’s life in the hunter’s paradise of the African bush.

Jock is a bull-terrier. When he is born, he is the ugliest of a litter of six; but he grows up to be the wisest and bravest of them all. With his master, he shares the excitement of camp life in the early days of the gold rush, and of many thrilling encounters with big game. Lost in the veldt during one of their long expeditions, he learns as much as a dog can about its birds and beasts and men.

His tale has become a classic among animal stories. Today it is as fresh and exciting as when it was first told.

It is published here with many marginal and full-page illustrations which became an integral part of Jock’s legend when it first appeared.”

The Art of Peter Scott: Images from a Lifetime by Philippa Scott (£34.00)Publisher: London: Sinclair-Stevenson — 1992Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Signed by the Author.[ISBN: 1856191001]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Contains: Black & white photographs; Colour plates; Black & white plates; Black & white drawings; Colour frontispiece; Illustrated endpapers and blanks; Signed by the author on the title page — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium.

From the cover: “This is the first and only book of Sir Peter Scott’s paintings to cover his life work.

It includes some juvenile drawings and watercolours by the gifted boy who was fascinated from a very early age by the natural world, and examples of his work at Oundle and at Cambridge. His love of sailing is represented, as well as his wartime Naval paintings and his book illustrations. Here are philosophical works, portraits of people, drawings of animals and flowers, and preliminary sketches, in addition to the well-known oil paintings of birds and some of the artist’s own comments on his work. Here also are the original designs for the well-known World Wildlife Fund panda and The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust logos.

This is a wonderfully designed book, in which the paintings are reproduced to the best possible effect. Some facsimile pages from Peter Scott’s illustrated diaries are included, as well as more formal art.

It was Peter Scott’s wish, before his death in 1989, to see a volume of his paintings published. This wish has been carried through by Lady Scott, who has selected the art and written the Preface and captions. Sir Peter’s friend and fellow painter, Keith Shackleton, has contributed the Introduction, which is illustrated with photographs, and Prince Philip has written the Foreword.”

The Treacle Mine Affair by D. E. Tucker (£28.00)Publisher: The Book Guild — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0863328407]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Slight tanning to the edges of the text block otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: From the cover: “One summer the inhabitants of Bincombe begin to behave strangely. They do not know they have been ‘pixillated’ by a peculiar effluent from the local disused lead workings, which include the oddly named ‘Treacle Mine’.

When Peg and Robin join their country cousins Helen and Adrian at Up-hill Farm for the holidays they form an intrepid team to unravel the fate of some stolen cattle and the mystery of the mine. They become entangled in an adventure much more dangerous and exciting than anything they had bargained for. For instance, Adrian’s Geiger counter shows such disturbing results on samples of water that radioactivity adds a frightening threat to the adventure. Strangers invade the village, headed by a master criminal called ‘The Octopus’. They are obviously up to no good and the daring quartet decide to infiltrate the Roman Cavern — scene of the crooks’ nefarious activities.

The boys make an horrific underground descent through a swallow-hole, but their dangerous attempt only raises more questions as to what dreadful scheme the gang are actually involved in. A good deal of hard work on a steam traction engine, plus the loyal support of their dog Shep, enables the cousins to penetrate the villains’ defences and uncover a wicked intrigue which threatens even more than the well-being of the village.

The final part of the adventure takes them into awesome underground passages, where stalagmites and stalactites provide a surrealistic setting for a crime which has distinctly contemporary significance. This thrilling narrative not only gives the reader an exciting mystery to solve — it also provides rich information on country living and on some of the environmental issues that concern us today.”

The Illustrated Encyclopedia Of Myths & Legends by Arthur Cotterell (£25.00)Publisher: Book Club Associates — 1992Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.Description: Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “Myths and legends are not merely curiosities from the past. These age-old stories from many cultures and traditions express poetry and power to which people continue to respond. The endlessly diverse body of world mythology is increasingly seen as a living link to the beginnings of our attempts to understand the natural world, and how human communities fit into its scheme. This is a new and comprehensive guide to its subject which includes individual entries for more than 1250 characters of myths and legends from 18 different cultural traditions around the world. Enhanced with a wealth of colour illustrations, line drawings and photographs, the book explores the historical, social and geographical reasons for the differences between the traditions, as well as identifying the universal human themes — from love and fertility to war and death — that bind them together. Every important myth and legend earns a place in these pages, along with many less well-known — but equally fascinating — stories specially selected for this volume. Meticulously researched, beautifully illustrated and produced, The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Myths and Legends is a major work of reference for everyone interested in this unique world heritage of human experience and imagination.”Notes: Size: 11¾" x 9¼".
