Pattern Design for Torchon Lace by Jane Atkinson (£68.00)Publisher: B. T. Batsford — 1987Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0713452420]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs [67]; Colour Photographs [7]; Black & White Drawings [117];

From the cover: “Many lacemakers are keen to design for themselves, but uncertain how to get started. This book will encourage those who already have some lacemaking experience to create new Torchon patterns, providing a wealth of ideas to develop this traditional technique.

Simple exercises and examples are expanded through the use of unusual grids and colour combinations, using both the familiar and more unexpected threads. Over 60 new patterns are included, and over 180 illustrations. Jane Atkinson provides exciting new sources for design, including Art Deco, Japanese, Russian, Pueblo, African and Celtic patterns, and inspiration drawn from anything and everything from electrical circuits to Venetian glass.

Good design needs the right materials and control of technique. The author sets out basic pattern skills in an orderly format, which allows each reader to learn at her own pace. Every pattern is intended to be fully workable, and can be made into anything from household linens to luxurious dress trimmings.”

Landscape Archaeology: An Introduction to Fieldwork Techniques on Post-Roman Landscapes by Michael Aston & James Bond (£33.00)Publisher: David & Charles — 1974Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 071536670X]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with pulling to the foot of the upper panel. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Our historical landscape is under threat, and this book offers practical advice for the novice or students wishing to further their field studies in order that they may record and understand the countryside before large parts of it are gone forever. The fieldwork techniques described can be employed by individuals or groups working on areas and topics of their own choice, and the book is designed to stimulate and guide senior school, extramural, college and undergraduate studies of post-Roman landscapes in England and Wales.

The evidence of man’s past activity is so extensive that there is no region where such work will be wasted, and often areas which at first sight appear archaeologically and historically barren turn out to be of the greatest importance when examined in detail; fieldwork carried out ahead of motorway construction schemes, for example, has proved profitable.

Topics covered include a brief history of field archaeology, an explanation of simple field working techniques, how to recognise and record the shape and development of towns and villages, how to recognise medieval elements in the rural landscape arid, finally, the application of these techniques to the route of a motorway. Illustrated with over fifty line drawings and nineteen photographs..”

Ornamental Design 1850 Ornementale Kunst 1850 Motifs Ornementaux 1850 Design Ornementale 1850 El Diseno Ornamental 1850 by Pepin Van Roojen (£30.00)Publisher: Amsterdam: The Pepin Press — 1998Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 9054960302]Condition: Very Good. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers with a small sticker ghost to the upper panel. Text block has a faint ripple throughout although the plates are well preserved. A good copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Plates;

From the cover: “The material presented in this book was originally published in the early 1870s, and representative of styles prevalent in the preceding decades. This was a period during which ornamental design became increasingly widespread, but, ironically, not a time during which many new designs were developed. Instead, the past was raided by architects, artists and craftsmen, and shapes and patterns that at one point in history may have had revered meanings, were copied, altered, combined or split to pieces, without much consideration for their original purpose. However, the result is a wealth of beautiful design. Practically every ornamental style known to early and mid-nineteenth century Europeans, from ancient Egyptian to Baroque, is represented here. The main items illustrated are ceramics, metalware, glass objects, furniture, carpets and other textiles, either complete, or in detail. There are also some architectural elements and examples of interior decoration.

Design inspired by ancient ancient Egypt displays the presence of stylised lotus flowers, motifs reminiscent of hieroglyphs, zig-zag patterns and spiralling constructions. Many examples of Greek ornamental design were copied from friezes on which mythical events were recorded. Very popular Greek ornaments are fret, spiral and bead borders, variations on the echinus (egg and dart), the acanthus and rosettes and palmettes. A principal characteristic of Greek design is the use of columns in architecture and interiors, topped with elaborate capitals. Very simply put, Roman adornment seems to have been largely an exuberant extension of the Greek visual vocabulary, with Etruscan elements added. Some of the mosaic designs in this book were clearly based on Pompeian originals. The so-called Byzantine school is a blending of styles: Greek, Roman, and early Christian ornaments, combined with elements from Persia and Syria. Byzantine ornamentation was one of the sources of Islamic decorative style, with elaborate geometrical patterns due to the interdiction of representations of living things. Illustrative of the Moorish style are the inter-woven formations based on Arabic calligraphy. The Gothic period contributed, among others, variations on the clover leaf: trefoils, quatrefoils and cinquefoils, but also the fleur-de-lis and the Tudor rose. During the Renaissance, the classical Greco-Roman models were rejuvenated and complemented with elements from the Near Orient. Especially in architecture, classical orders were followed. In ornamental design, freer patterns became fashionable. Of course, the Renaissance motifs used during the period covered by this book, were, again, often combined with other styles.”

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.”

Commodore 64: Exploring Graphics by S. Gray; M. D. Holmes; (£25.50)Publisher: Glentop Publishers — 1985Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0907792502]Condition: Very Good. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers.Description: No. 2 in the series. First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “This book teaches the reader how to use the Commodore 64’s graphics features. It assumes that the reader is already fairly competent in BASIC programming. Each new principle is introduced step by step, beginning with PEEK and POKE (Chapter One) and ending with sprite collision routines (Chapter Five). On the way, the reader explores bit-map mode, multicolour bit-map mode, extended colour mode, character design and sprite design. At every stage the points are illustrated with clear, easy-to-follow examples. Four major programs are developed in the book: two games and two utilities. The first game is called ‘Breakout’, a bat and ball game used to illustrate the use of the Commodore’s screen and colour memory locations. The second game is called ‘Target’ and uses sprites to provide a challenging and tricky game. The two utilities, ‘Char.Gen’ and ‘sprite.Gen’ are used for designing characters and sprites respectively. Commodore 64 programmers will need only a little imagination to realise the vast potential that these tools offer.”Notes: Size: 10¼" x 6¾". In the Watson's Workbooks series.

Golf Doctor: Diagnosis, Explanation and Correction of Golfing Faults by John Jacobs with Dick Aultman (£24.00)Publisher: Stanley Paul & Co. — 1979Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0091346304]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Gently faded at the spine. Description: First British Edition. [First Published: Simon & Schuster, 1979, USA, as Curing Faultsfor Weekend Golfers]. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Drawings; Diagrams;

From the cover: “In Golf Doctor, the most accomplished teacher in the world of golf to-day sets out to help golfers help themselves. With the aid of superb two-colour drawings by Anthony Ravielli he succeeds admirably in explaining the fundamental reasons why golfers slice, hook and in general mis-hit the golf ball — why they can’t hit straight.

John Jacobs’ teaching applies to golfers of all standards, and by using the flight of the ball as incontrovertible evidence of how the club strikes it, John Jacobs forces the golfer back to the basic laws of impact, which are the only starting point for genuine and lasting improvement. Shots good and bad, he insists, are determined by what happens at impact. The best golfers make bad shots; however, because the ball’s flight alerts them to the true problem, they can usually correct the error quickly, before it becomes habitual. John Jacobs relentlessly insists that all aspiring golfers must first learn to understand the true objective of the swing in terms of club/ball impact before they can permanently improve.

By means of a most careful system of diagnosis, explanation and correction. Golf Doctor takes the reader through just about every golfing fault.

While the lessons in this book are designed to improve a player’s shots, John Jacobs emphasises that it is also especially important for the weekend golfer to understand how to handle on-course situations — for example, driving on holes with trouble on one side or another, playing in a cross-wind, or playing shots from tight lies. He has therefore included a most important section in which he explains how to avoid wasted strokes, how you can better control what your golf ball does and, thereby, better cope with the many situations that all golfers inevitably encounter on the course.

This is the most comprehensive book ever written on the subject of golf improvement. It is the most logical and, being so easy to follow, it is sure to help every golfer who studies its pages.”

At the end of most chapters, you’ll find a list of “Questions for Getting Started” that will help you to identify what steps you need to take — and what resources you may already have in place —t o accomplish the project segment presented in that chapter. In addition, throughout the book, the authors apply each principle and technique to a practical case study — a groundbreaking project conducted by a wedding-services business — with checklists and diagrams to clarify every application. Project Management Practitioner’s Handbook is an A-to-Z resource that gives all managers practical, step-by-step access to the experience and insight of professional project managers. It will be of enormous value to executives and consultants in all spheres of business.”Notes: Size: 10¼" x 7¼". Purple / Black boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 242 pages.

Government And Politics In The United States by Guy B. Hathorn, Howard R. Penniman & Mark F. Ferber (£22.50)Publisher: D. Van Nostrand Company — 1965Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper is loose, faded overall and more so at the spine with a short closed tear to the head of the lower panel and the head of the spine. Upper board lightly sprung. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: 2nd edition, 1st printing, [First Published: 1961] Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Charts; Tables; Maps;

From the cover: “THIS new edition of Government and Politics in the United States is fully up to date — including materials on the changing roles of President and Vice-President, the 1964 nominating conventions, the campaigns, and the elections. The chapter on civil liberties has been significantly revised to take into account the many changes in the Supreme Court’s interpretation of the first 10 Amendments and the Fourteenth Amendment. There is also a discussion of both the Twenty-Third and Twenty-Fourth Amendments. Special attention has been given to the major changes in state politics and in state legislative make-up growing out of the Court’s decisions in the re-apportionment cases that started with Baker v. Carr. In the chapters dealing with state and local government, changes made have been the result of new research as much as in the legal and constitutional positions of governments at this level.

The authors present a broad, realistic picture of all levels of American government — origins, history, structure, and operation. Balanced and interesting, the text clearly analyzes the principles, structure, functions, and subtleties of the operation of American government.

The organization of the text reflects an exceptional concern for teachability. In each chapter, a preface sets the stage for the material that follows; the main text is divided into convenient units; a summary focuses attention on the underlying themes discussed; an annotated bibliography (brought up to date) introduces important authorities and source materials. Students can readily master the fundamentals of government, leaving the teacher free to develop specific topics.

In every chapter, concrete examples bring the student into close contact with the political process. Numerous photographs, charts, graphs, and maps (many new to this edition) complement the text material. The end product is an absorbing, timely study of our governmental system.”

Text complete, clean and tight otherwise.Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Black & White Drawings; Colour Drawings; From the cover: “To all leisure artists working at home, Painter’s Progress brings a complete year in your own private art school, a specially programmed series of twelve lessons with three experienced teachers of drawing and watercolour and oil painting. Anyone can be taught to draw and paint — this is the firm conviction of Ian Simpson and his colleagues, who have fifty years of teaching experience between them. Art is primarily about learning to see in a clear, direct way, and once the eye is trained, the hand will follow. Each lesson is designed to contain enough material for a month, but the comprehensive information in the text makes it simple to work at any speed. From the first hints on organizing a place to work, even in the smallest space, every project leads the artist through basic instructions in the three media, colour theory and the history of art to the wider fields of still life, interiors, landscapes, waterscapes and even figures and portraits. There are step-by-step projects for every lesson, detailed studies and carefully planned extra subjects, as well as unique guidance on how to look at paintings by great masters to give confidence and conviction to your own work. An invaluable reference section includes practical, back-up information on what to buy, specialized books to read, a glossary of art terms and museum collections to visit.”Notes: Size: 12" x 9".

The Anatomy of Nelson's Ships by C. [Charles] Nepean Longridge (£20.50)Publisher: Hemel Hempstead: Model & Allied Publications Limited — 1974Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0853440913]Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Price Clipped. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: 6th impression. [First Edition: 1955] Illustrated by way of: Fold-out Plans [12]; Black & White Plates [50]; Black & White Drawings [183];

From the cover: “Nelson’s history has been written from every possible angle, but this is not so with his ships. Such information as there is about the ships is buried in contemporary books on Naval Architecture; only the expert can sift it and present it in a usable form. In doing this, Dr. Longridge’s work becomes a veritable treasure trove for the naval historian and ship modeller. H. M. S. Victory is the supreme example of the ships of the period, and fortunately she is still in existence. The original draughts of 1765 have been preserved, as have also the drawings used in the restoration of the ship in 1922. The author was thus able to compile from authentic sources and his model of the Victory now occupies a prominent position in the Science Museum at South Kensington.

The illustrations are a unique feature, they include a set of photographs, now made available to the general public, showing the interior construction of H. M. S. Victory and H. M. S. Implacable, the latter being taken only a few days before she was scuttled.

There are nearly 200 line drawings, designed by E. Bowness, A. R. I. N. A. , and executed by G. F. Campbell, Assoc. M. R. I. N. A. , ranging from elaborate perspective drawings of the complex gear at the fore top and crosstrees to the simplest detail. The folding plates by G. F. Campbell include lines, inboard and outboard profile, deck plans of the hull, standing and running rigging plans, and a complete belaying pin plan.

Such an analysis of the ship of this period has never before been attempted and the ship lover, the naval architect and the ship modeller of today is fortunate in having such a work.”

Dog Training and Behaviour by Geoff Grinham (£19.50)Publisher: The Crowood Press — 1994Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1852237511]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Slight ruffling at the top edge of the dust wrapper otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The basis of all successful dog training must be an understanding of canine psychology and behaviour. In this book this vast and frequently misunderstood subject is tackled in a clear and accessible way, enabling anyone to grasp the essentials and use them to lay the foundations for a long-lasting, mutually satisfactory human/canine partnership.

The critical development periods of the puppy and the adolescent dog, establishment of rank order, canine language and communication, and the variables of temperament and disposition are explored before the author sets out in detail a comprehensive, easy-to-follow training programme. Working logically and progressively through each stage of the dog’s learning process, the handler is shown how to teach and consolidate each lesson, from the basics of Sit, Heel and Come, to the more advanced Search and Scent Discrimination exercises. Finally there are chapters dealing with individual behavioural problems, which explain how it is possible to retrain the errant dog and prevent future regression. Throughout, the practical day-to-day relevance of the various training exercises is emphasized, and the process by which mutual trust and understanding are achieved is made clear. Thus the book is more than a training manual; it is a complete guide to getting the most out of your partnership with your dog.

Illustrated throughout with black and white photographs and original line-drawings, Dog Training and Behaviour is both a practical step-by-step guidebook and a valuable source of reference for all dog owners.”

Production and Inventory Management by Donald W. Fogarty & Thomas R. Hoffmann (£19.00)Publisher: South-Western Publishing — 1983Binding: Hardback [ISBN: 0538070404]Condition: Very Good. Gently faded at the spine. Gently bruised at head & tail of spine and corners. Light offset to the endpapers. Text bright and tight.Description: The book is divided into five major parts. The sequence of chapters and topics in Parts 1 and 3 generally follows the chronological order in which these activities take place in practice. Long-, medium-, and short-range planning, for example, are treated in that order. Following that logic, order release planning is examined in Chapters 4, 5, and 7; and actual order release is covered in Chapters 12 and 13. Although planning for all time horizons, execution, and control are all occurring at any time in an organization, these concurrent, diverse activities usually concern different periods. Treating PIM activities in the sequence in which they apply to a given time period facilitates the explanation, and hopefully the reader’s understanding, of these activities.

Description: From the cover: “This manual is intended for everyone professionally involved in the landscape industry: for landscape architects, local authority parks administrators, landscape contractors, surveyors and nurserymen.

Most landscape professionals know their own duties and responsibilities in detail; few know as much about those of their clients, customers or suppliers. The purpose of this book is to explain the best practice and procedure and so ensure the satisfactory completion of landscape contracts, large or small, public or private.

The author, Hugh Clamp, is a Senior Partner of Manning and Clamp and Partners, the Richmond firm of architects and landscape consultants. He was, for twelve years, one of the RIBA representatives on the Joint Contracts Tribunal and has chaired the JCLI Contracts Subcommittee since 1977. His experience of private practice and of contract drafting makes this book an ideal mix of down-to-earth experience and an industry-wide overview.”

Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges, slightly tanned. A nice copy of a not-so-common title.Description: From the cover: “Are management consultants the answer to a businessman’s prayer? Or are they unprincipled rogues who, for an exorbitant fee, tell a company nothing it does not already know and saddle it with a lot of elaborate, unnecessary and expensive procedures?

To answer these extreme questions and many more between, Laura Tatham has obtained first-hand evidence from dozens of consultants and from as many clients, both satisfied and dissatisfied. This book is the result of her inquiries.

An impartial survey, The Efficiency Experts examines in detail what management consultants are, how they work and what they set out to accomplish. It suggests ways in which the businessman can make best use of consultants, and how he can assess whether or not a firm is likely to do a good job. A number of case histories describe both successful and unsuccessful consulting assignments.”

Gardening Made Easy: A Step-By-Step Guide To Planning, Preparing, Planting, Maintaining And Enjoying Your Garden by Jane Fearnley-Whittingstall (£16.50)Publisher: Weidenfeld & Nicolson — 1995Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0297833073]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little pulled at the edges. Small tear to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “Jane Fearnley-Whittingstall’s Gardening Made Easy will appeal equally to the experienced gardener and the beginner. Written by the internationally-renowned garden designer, this approachable and easy-to-follow manual explains everything you need to know to create and maintain a successful garden, whatever its si/e, shape and condition, its limitations and potential.

Her philosophy is simple: it is knowledge that transforms gardening from a chore to a pleasure. With its clear, step-by-step instructions, her Gardening Made Easy will double the satisfaction you get from gardening and your garden, while halving the work you put into it.

The book is divided into three major sections, ‘Making or Remaking a Garden , ‘Looking After Your Garden’ and ‘Becoming a Specialist’. The first part discusses the fundamentals of gardening: how to plan and design a garden, taking into account your needs and its soil, climate, location and sixe; how plants live and reproduce; how to choose the right plants, with imaginative suggestions for plant coordination; and how to create a garden from scratch, from clearing neglected waste ground, to planting/transplanting and laying a new lawn. The chapters in the second section outline the techniques vital for maintaining the garden: pruning, weeding, watering, feeding, fighting diseases and pests, and basic propagation. For the more confident gardener, the third section explains more specialized skills, with separate chapters on the kitchen garden, water gardening, containers, and tending plants with special needs: roses, alpines, herbs and wild flowers.

Drawing on thirty years’ experience in five gardens of her own, offering numerous tips and warnings, Jane is a sympathetic teacher who combines a designer’s eye for the potential of a garden with a profound practical knowledge. She answers all the questions a beginner could possibly ask, while at the same time offering an invaluable refresher course to more experienced gardeners.
