Paul Heathcote's Rhubarb and Black Pudding by Matthew Fort (£19.00)Publisher: Fourth Estate — 1998Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1857025008]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Leans slightly. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “Paul Heathcote is a phenomenon even among the elite band of Britain’s master chefs. Not only has he resolutely stayed put in his native Lancashire to become one of the few Michelin-starred English chefs north of Watford, but he has also achieved this while pioneering his own special brand of haute cuisine, which is quite distinctively British, if not English — even Lancastrian.

Deconstructing and elevating traditional dishes like black pudding, roast duckling with mead, pig’s trotters stuffed with ham hock, apple crumble soufflé and deep-fried Stilton fritters, Heathcote has created the sort of cuisine du terroir so characteristic of the great French chefs but hitherto virtually unknown amongst their British counterparts.

In Rhubarb & Black Pudding, Paul Heathcote and award-winning food writer Matthew Fort have gathered together the best of Heathcote’s recipes. Arranged by seasons, they include dishes as varied as Pressed Ham Terrine; Fillet of Red Bream Marinated in Whisky and Dill; Roast Rack of Spring Lamb with Hot-pot Potatoes, Braised Lentils, Roast Shallots and Rosemary Juice; Compote of Caramelized Rhubarb with Elderflower Cream; and Creamed Rice Pudding Scented with Hazelnut. Matthew’s colourful introductions to each section also vividly convey the changing seasonal landscape and the creative processes as they unfold in the kitchen.

With stunning colour photography of the food, clear black-and-white reportage of the kitchens and evocative landscapes of the Ribble Valley through the changing seasons, Rhubarb & Black Pudding provides a unique picture of a great chef at work.”

The Iron Masters of Penns by John Horsfall (£14.00)Publisher: The Roundwood Press — 1971Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0900093293]Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Ex-library with usual marks, numerals to the spine, pocket to the pastedown, slip to the ffep, stamp to the reverse of the title page. Leans heavily. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the flap: “The Websters of Penns began their enterprise in the time of Marlborough and the business has proved as durable as the steel for which they were famous. Set in the background of the national history the story accelerates down the years — threaded with family problems, humour and drama often lie together, and in later years suspense is rarely absent. The tale is a true one without the cheap device of omitting the unpalatable and it depicts most of the range of human performance from inspiration and genius to utter imbecility. At the end one is left amazed that the firm still stands, but Webster and Horsfall, as it is now known, still remains — battered perhaps, but still on solid rock after two and a half centuries.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

DJ slightly ruffled at the edges. Leans slightly.Description: From the cover: “Her husband killed in the Great War, his wife dead — why not journey to the other side of the world and start again from scratch? What does it matter if they don’t know each other; they will in time, after all? Norah thinks it is the most stupid idea she has ever heard. But Andrew needs no persuading. His kids are without a mother and he lives in a Lancashire town with no prospects: he can’t wait to build a new life for himself in Australia. The government will even give ex-servicemen a farm, as long as they clear the land themselves. The only thing he needs is a wife to join him and time is short. Then Norah’s father dies and there is nowhere for her or her daughter to go. For the first time in her life she decides to do something crazy. It may be madness to follow a man she barely knows to an untamed land of heat, spiders and endless bush far from home, but it may also be the answer to all her dreams.”Notes: Jacket designed by Gordon Crabb.

Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Reprint. Signed by the author on the title page — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Dickie Bird’s retirement was an international event shown on millions of TV screens and covered in newspapers throughout the world. He is a household name, an eccentric, and one of the most loved and respected characters in world cricket. Here at last is his autobiography. The most famous cricket umpire of them all, Dickie has done that difficult job more skilfully than anyone else. Moreover he has done it in his idiosyncratic style and with the infectious humour which has endeared him to millions throughout the world, transcending his sport. Fiercely proud of his background as a Yorkshire miner’s son, his story follows his youth in Barnsley, his early days as a cricketer, through to his career as an umpire and his experiences of the international scene, all told with total honesty by this very private person. Throughout his life he has courted both controversy and comedy. 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.”Notes: Foreword or introduction by Michael Parkinson.

[ISBN: 1852510307]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dustwrapper. Edges of the textblock lightly tanned.Description: From the flap: “Has Britain really recovered from its decades-long industrial decline? What has to be done to maintain the recovery? And how did our industry become so uncompetitive in the first place? Here are the facts and the statistics behind the collapse of British industrial power and influence between the end of the Second World War and the late 1970s, and the subsequent return to apparent health in the Thatcherite years. Views vary widely on the causes of the decline; yet there is a remarkable degree of agreement as to what needs to be done to continue the recovery. Continue is the key word, for though the patient is off the critical list, he is far from dancing with rude health.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼". Black boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 388 pages.

From the cover: “Worshipped by England fans, and admired by cricket lovers everywhere for his big-hitting, fast-bowling style, Flintoff is the charismatic, hugely popular face of the modern game. His development has been spectacular — he was England’s star performer at the 2003 World Cup, Man of the Series against the West Indies the following winter, and is now regarded as his country’s finest all-rounder since lan Botham. Flintoff’s greatest and most recent successes have come against the old enemy, Australia, in a 2005 Ashes series that captured the hearts and minds of a nation. Over a quite sensational summer, Flintoff was at the centre of everything, scoring runs and taking wickets at a phenomenal rate, and hailed as a hero for his part in English cricket’s greatest ever triumph.

BEING FREDDIE is a very personal account of Flintoff’s meteoric rise to the top. Recounting the most dramatic, significant moments in his career to date, Freddie reveals what it is like to play for the most successful England cricket team in recent times, and takes the reader into the heat of battle with the world’s top cricketing nations. Incorporating the fascinating inside story of the victorious 2005 Ashes campaign, this is the book cricket fans across the world have been waiting for.”

As If by Blake Morrison (£9.50)Publisher: Granta — 1997Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 1862070032]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Leans slightly otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: A Later Printing. From the cover: “This volume seeks to expose the hollowness of condemnation divorced from understanding in relation to the Bulger murder trial. People have almost become desensitized to random murder. It is often explained away by madness, sexual fantasy or rejection. One murder in recent times reduced every person to silence: the abduction and beating to death of a helpless infant by two ten-year-old boys. How and why did two innocent boys kill another? Is childhood innocence a myth? And what punishment could fit such a crime, assuming that children are fit to stand trial for murder? Blake Morrison went to the trial in Preston, and discovered a sad ritual of condemnation with two bewildered children at the centre. He looked for possible explanations in the boys’ families, their dreary environment, their fantasies, their exposure to violent films. He evokes the worst feats of parents through candid and raw memories of his relations with his own children, and delves into his own childhood to reveal the worst thing he has ever done, to show how easy it is to go along with cruelty..”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5½".

The Barry Richards Story by Barry Richards (£9.50)Publisher: Readers Union — 1978Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with some soiling to the lower panel. Pages very gently age-tanned.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “One of the world’s outstanding batsmen — certainly the greatest South Africa has produced — describes his early years in Durban, the experiences and family background which formed him as a man and a player, and his dazzling and sometimes turbulent career since he first made his mark as a schoolboy, captaining the first ever South African Schoolboys’ XI to tour England in 1963. He and his vice-captain Mike Procter subsequently made an impact on English county cricket, and Barry Richards gives an account of his career with Hampshire both on and off the field, with forthright views on the county game. He is equally forthright about the structure of his homeland, for which he played in one outstandingly successful Test series before South Africa was banned from international cricket — on which he also has clear-cut opinions.

Though clearly of outstanding natural ability, Richards is far from being a purely instinctive player, and some of the most interesting passages in his book concern the strategy and tactics of the game, the varying attitudes to it from country to country, including absorbing accounts of many memorable games — not least that in which he scored 356 at Perth.

This book is not just for cricket lovers, but for all concerned with the place of sport in contemporary society, domestic and international, at a time when conventional attitudes to the place of politics and commerce are seen to be no longer adequate.”
