Minoan And Mycenaean Art by Reynold Higgins (£56.50)Publisher: Thames & Hudson — 1967Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 9780500181843]Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Upper wrapper slighty curled. Pages lightly age-tanned.Description: 241 Plates, 54 in Colour. From the cover: “ONE OF THE GREAT EVENTS in the history of archaeology was the discovery by Heinrich Schliemann, in 1876, of the treasures in the citadel of Mycenae — the home of the legendary King Agamemnon. Equally momentous was the series of excavations carried out by Sir Arthur Evans, from 1900, at the palace of King Minos at Knossos. Ever since, men have been stirred by the mysterious frescoes at Knossos; by the palace of Phaistos; by the gold funeral masks from Mycenae; and by countless other beautiful artefacts. All these are discussed and illustrated in this book, together with the remarkable recent finds at Zakro, many of which have not previously been described in English. The world which Schliemann and Evans unearthed was in no sense a primitive culture. More than 1000 years before Pericles, a sophisticated court flourished at Knossos, until disaster struck and leadership passed to the war-lords of Mycenae, the forefathers of Agamemnon and of the heroes of the Trojan war.

In this comprehensive survey, Dr Reynold Higgins discusses the art and architecture not only of the important Cretan and Mycenaean cultures, but also of the Cycladic Islands. The period covered begins shortly after 3000 BC, and ends with the Dorian invasions of mainland Greece. Dr Higgins’ text, and the plates which accompany it, reveal not only the astonishing profusion, variety and quality of the art created during this period, but also much fascinating detail concerning the methods of manufacture employed by these wonderful ancient craftsmen.”

Handley Page Aircraft Since 1907 Revised by Derek N. James by C. H. [Christopher Henry] Barnes (£56.00)Publisher: London: Putnam — 1987Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0851778038]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: 2nd (revised) edition, 1st printing, [First Published: 1976] Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps; Plans;

From the cover: “First heard in aviation a few years before the 1914-18 war, the name of Handley Page became one to conjure with when strategic bombing of Rhineland armament factories began in 1917 as a counter-blow to the German submarine blockade of the British Isles. After the war an O/400 and a V/1500 were the first two aircraft to fly all the way from England to India, and soon afterwards Handley Page pioneered commercial air transport services across the English Channel and in China, India and South Africa.

A new generation of twin- and four-engined monoplane bombers — Hampden and Halifax — emerged to challenge Hitler’s ambition between 1935 and 1945, giving rise in turn to the Hastings and Hermes transports of the 1950s; finally the nuclear age produced the Victor transonic bomber, which remains in service as the RAF’s long-range flight refuelling tanker A new line of smaller civil transports began with the acquisition in 1948 of Miles Aircraft Ltd and from the Reading factory stemmed the very successful Dart-Herald.

This book contains photographs, three-view drawings and data of every type of Handley Page aircraft built and flown, as well as many historic project drawings not previously published, and completes the author’s trilogy, which already includes Bristol Aircraft since 1910 and Shorts Aircraft since 1900 in the series.”

[ISBN: 0851778194]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper.

Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Tables; Plans;

From the cover: “From the first spherical balloons made by Eustace and Oswald Short, the author traces the brothers’ progress as engineers to the Aero Club till Wilbur Wright’s arrival in France in 1908 and their consequent change-over from balloons to aeroplanes — a decision endorsed by their eldest brother Horace, who joined them to set up the world’s first aircraft production line.

Their rapid expansion as aircraft suppliers to the Royal Navy and their notable progress with deck-launching, folding wings, buoyancy bags and sprung floats led to enormous production of the famous Short Type 184 during World War I, in which period the firm also built rigid airships.

Oswald Short’s pioneering work with a successful series of metal hulled flying-boats is described and their operational histories recorded.

Appendices list all Shorts’ constructors’ numbers, serials and registration marks. The book contains specifications for all Short types and variants, and complete lists to date of type designations and preliminary designs.

For this new edition the section on unbuilt projects has been expanded and the post-1945 story of Rochester’s last days and Northern Ireland’s new industry has been carried down to the present. The Skyvan and Belfast chapters have been up-dated and the 330, Sherpa and 360 have been added to the aircraft coverage, as well as notes on the forthcoming Tucano.”

Barbarian Warriors: Saxons, Vikings and Normans by Dan & Susanna Shadrake (£23.00)Publisher: London: Brassey's — 1997Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 1857532139]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Contains: Black & white photographs; Colour photographs; Colour plates; Black & white drawings; Cutaways;

From the cover: “This is an essential book for everyone with an interest in the warriors of Britain’s Dark Ages. It is the definitive guide to the arms and armour of all the invading barbarian armies, from Saxons and Celts to Vikings and Normans. It covers the period from the disintegration of Roman rule in Britain in the 5th century — the legendary era of King Arthur — through the raids of Saxons, Celts, and Vikings until the final conquest of Britain by the Normans in the 11th century.

Frequently portrayed as an era of brutality and chaos, this book reveals the reality behind the legendary warriors of the period. What did King Arthur’s warriors really look like? Who were the mysterious pirate raiders from Ireland who ravaged Wales and Scotland? It also uncovers the considerable art of war in this period, the high level of craftsmanship achieved in the manufacture of all forms of arms and armour, from mail and scale defences to beautifully embellished helmets and swords. It shows how the achievements of the Roman war machine survived throughout the Dark Ages until the time of the Normans.

Drawing on the very latest discoveries and research, the authors create a vivid picture of Dark Ages warfare which will surprise many enthusiasts. Dan and Susanna Shadrake’s authoritative text is illustrated by 150 colour and black and white photographs, and world-renowned military artist Richard Hook has created four colour plates for the book.”

Edges of the textblock lightly spotted. Offset to the endpapers. OccasioDescription: Illustrated with line drawings. From the cover: “The growing scarcity of suitable solid fuels for gasmaking in past years has directed a great deal of attention to the use of petroleum products for this purpose. For many years the advantages to be derived from the use of “gas oil” have been realised particularity where peak loads are concerned but, more recently considerations of cost and availability of gasmaking materials, and increasing demands for town gas have led to the rapid development of gasmaking techniques in which a wide variety of other petroleum products can be employed. The purpose of this book is to describe the main processes of gasmaking, the equipment involved and the characteristics of the gases produced. A large proportion of the text describes conventional solid fuel processes, a broad knowledge of which is essential if the factors involved in oil gas manufacture are to be fully understood.”Notes: Foreword or introduction by J.

A History of Chocolate in York by Paul Chrystal & Joe Dickinson (£13.00)Publisher: Remember When — 2012Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 1844681238]Condition: Very Good. Small, light, spots to the leading edge of the text block otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Colour Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “Think of York and you think of its Minster, mediaeval streets, the railways — and of confectionery, particularly chocolate. Kit Kat, Fruit Gums, All Gold, Butterkist have all been as much a part of British life as the York companies that made them: Rowntree’s, Terry’s and Craven’s.

This new book is the first to chart the history of chocolate and confectionery manufacture and marketing by York companies, from their origins in the eighteenth century, through to the recent takeovers by Nestlé, Tangerine and Kraft.

Revolutionary new products such as Easter eggs in the 1870s and chocolate assortments in the 1890s are covered along with such crucial turn of the century developments as milk chocolate and the chocolate bar. The significance to the industry of the Quaker movement is discussed along with an examination of the impact of the world wars and the intervening depression.

The book is fully illustrated throughout, depicting all aspects of production, quality control, distribution and marketing: the packaging, design and branding developed by the companies broke new ground in branding and became an art form in itself with iconic images that still resonate today.

The book is intended for anyone interested in social history and the history of the food industry in Britain, the Quaker movement and social reform and manufacturing and marketing history; residents of and visitors to York will find in the book a fascinating glimpse of an integral part of York’s past, present and future.”

Fighters of the Luftwaffe by Joachim Dressel & Manfred Greihl (£12.50)Publisher: London: Arms & Armour Press — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1854091395]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Tables;

From the cover: “In this encyclopedic new work, the combined talents of two leading German aviation historians have produced possibly the ultimate illustrated reference to all German fighter aircraft. Most of the 300-plus original photographs have never been published before and they superbly illustrate all sub-types and development models of more than 30 aircraft.

All types are included: the advanced designs in the rearmament of the 1930s, such as the Heinkel 112, Henschel 121 and Messerschmitt 109, through every wartime fighter, including the FW 190A-D models, Bf 210 and Me 410, Ta 152, He 219 and Do 335, and full coverage of the development of the revolutionary jet and rocket aircraft in which Germany was far in advance of the Allies.

The appeal of this book is also in the range of aircraft photographs, which show special power-plant, radar and weapons developments as well as unusual unit markings, photos of types in manufacture and operational conversions in the field — all rarely seen. The accompanying text emphasises the development of the Luftwaffe fighters, with facts and figures on the huge range of variants and sub-types under testing and of which little is known — for example, the evolution of the standard Bf 109 into the P 1091 Extreme High Altitude Fighter of almost 60,000-feet operational ceiling.

There are numerous books on this subject, but few can boast the number and diversity of new illustrations and the comprehensive nature of the technical data in this superb new study. Restorers, collectors, historians and modellers will relish the wealth of fresh information offered by such a volume which sheds much new light on a subject previously considered incomplete.”

Until the early 1990s the town’s prosperity was firmly based on rubber. Bradford on Avon, now often thought of as a picturesque destination for tourists was, first and foremost, a working town, lived in by working folk. It is this theme which emerges most strongly from Margaret Dobson’s panoramic study.”Notes: Foreword or introduction by John Chandler. Size: Trade Paperback (9¼" x 6"). 256 pages.

From the cover: “When Trevor Hickman published the first history of Stilton cheese in 1995, he had spent over 30 years researching the manufacture of the ‘King of English Cheeses’. He has encountered much opposition from local politicians and cheese makers. They argued that Stilton cheese was never made in the village of Stilton in Huntingdonshire on the Roman road called Ermine Street, but was instead made around the district of Melton Mowbray. In this book the author has attempted to correct this. A blue-veined, pressed cream cheese was made in the town of Stilton by 1721, and it was called Stilton cheese.

A different type of cream cheese which developed blue veins was produced in the farm dairies in the village of Wymondham, Leicestershire, before 1600, and was marketed in the name of the producers. Frances Pawlett of Wymondham and Cooper Thornhill, an entrepreneur living in Stilton and trading into London, changed the manufacture and marketing of this world-famous cheese. Another influential individual, Shuckburgh Ashby, an entrepreneur with connections with the banking community in London, began dealing with Leicestershire cheese from Hinckley, Leicester and eventually Quenby Hall. This pressed cheese developed in the Sparkenhoe Hundred in Leicestershire, off the Roman roads known as the Fosse Way and Wading Street. The marketing of the pressed wheels of Leicestershire cheese brought many competitors. In the 1740s Ashby became aware of a new cheese that was being marketed in London, Stilton cheese, which was sold out of Cornhill, London, by Cooper Thornhill. After Thornhill’s death, Ashby controlled much of the Stilton cheese trade into London, which was by then being made at Quenby Hall.

The production of cheese in Leicestershire and the Midlands has developed and expanded over many centuries. In the 20th century cheese production came under the control of national Government, which stipulated that all blue-veined cream cheese must be produced from pasteurised milk. There was considerable opposition to these controls and protests surfaced again in 1989 when the Minister of Agriculture intended to ban the sale of unpasteurised cheese. The Specialist Cheesemakers’ Association was formed in opposition, with Randolph Hodgson as chairman. Nowadays a fine Leicestershire cheese is made near Hinckley and Stichelton cheese is made in Nottinghamshire from the original Stilton cheese recipe. Both are made from organic, unpasteurised milk.”

Practical Printing and Binding: A Complete Guide to the Latest Developments in All Branches of the Printer’s Craft by Harry Whetton (£10.50)Publisher: Odhams Press — 1946Binding: Hardback Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Ex-library with usual marks. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding with heavy fading to the spine. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The aim has been to give, in a single volume, expert practical instruction in every branch of printing, so that apprentices, learners and craftsmen generally may increase their knowledge of the latest methods employed. Printers as a class are anxious to learn more of their craft than the work in which they are immediately concerned. The compositor wishes to know something of the machine-minder’s work, and vice versa; the lithographer and the gravure printer appreciate the benefit of knowing something of the work of the departments which provide the material for transferring to plate or cylinder. The greater the sharing of knowledge among the numerous branches of the trade, the greater will be the efficiency of the industry; and it is believed that this book will be of great practical value in this connection.”Notes: Size: 9" x 6".

A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with a crease to the foot of the upper panel, a short tear at the foot now tape-reinforced and a further tear to the head of the spine. Pages lightly age-tanned. Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Paul Henderson left school at the age of fifteen and worked his way up from apprentice to become Managing Director of Britain’s third-largest machine-tool manufacturer, Matrix Churchill. For almost twenty years he provided information, gathered on his many trips to Eastern Bloc countries, to a series of MI6 controllers. In September 1989, he showed Ministry of Defence officials, on a vast wall map, ‘precisely where Saddam Hussein had built the factories that were turning out his missiles, artillery and munitions. I knew where they were because I had been inside many of them’. In the Gulf War, British and American aircraft used Henderson’s information to help pinpoint targets for the bombs that destroyed the military power of Iraq. In return for his bravery and patriotism Henderson was betrayed by the British Government and forced to fight for his freedom from the dock at the Old Bailey. In November 1992 he won his case. The Unlikely Spy is both the autobiography of an ordinary man and a potentially explosive document filled with revelations about the secret workings of the intelligence services and the Government itself.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

The author discusses in detail the particular qualities of rugs made in the towns and districts of Persia, Asia Minor, the Caucasus and Turkestan, with special emphasis on such celebrated rug-producing towns as Isfahan, Tabriz and Heriz. The famous carpets — the Ardebil, the Trinitarias, the “Garden Carpet” — are of course here, but we are also introduced to many beautiful varieties which are less well-known. A chapter is devoted to prayer rugs and includes discussion of methods of dating and of identifying their place of origin. The author, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, is a Director of Perez (London) Ltd., one of the best known carpet dealers in London, and many of the magnificent pieces illustrated have passed through his expert hands.”Notes: Size: 9¾" x 8¼".

All except Apricot Computers have a turnover of less than £100m a year but their individual profiles are varied. While Apricot and Tri-ang toy company compete in a tough international market, family enterprises like Stoke-on-Trent’s Churchill group, the Morgan car company and Copella Fruit Juices face critical challenges closer to home. And the problems of the Shropshire District Health Authority, Sir John’s other port of call, are formidable. How do you manage an organisation upon which people’s lives depend within the constraints of a tight, fixed budget? Sir John Harvey-Jones works closely with senior management in the six organisations he visits, focusing on the major strategy questions facing them. How can they increase production while maintaining quality? Should they seek a merger partner in order to expand? Is it sensible to diversify into new areas? Is it wise to go for international growth, albeit in the face of stiff competition?”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼". Black boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 192 pages.

Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with much spotting and a little fraying to the spine ends. Previous owners' name to the first blank, alongside two numbers. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise. Description: Contains: Diagrams; Tables; Cutaways;

From the cover: “The growing scarcity of suitable solid fuels for gasmaking in past years has directed a great deal of attention to the use of petroleum products for this purpose.

For many years the advantages to be derived from the use of “gas oil” have been realised particularly where peak loads are concerned but, more recently considerations of cost and availability of gasmaking materials, and increasing demands for town gas have led to the rapid development of gasmaking techniques in which a wide variety of other petroleum products can be employed.

The purpose of this book is to describe the main processes of gas-making, the equipment involved and the characteristics of the gases produced.

A large proportion of the text describes conventional solid fuel processes, a broad knowledge of which is essential if the factors involved in oil gas manufacture are to be fully understood.”

Text complete, clean and tight.Description: 2nd Impression, 2nd Edition. [First Edition: 1964] Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white with drawings. From the cover: “Although there are a large number of books on objets d’art available in a higher price range, there is very little to suit the enthusiast of more modest means. This series of handbooks, Collectors’ Pieces, answers that need. These books are intended for the reader who has limited knowledge of the subject, perhaps culled from visits to museums, but who may be encouraged to start a collection of the less expensive pieces. Each volume deals with the subject historically and — where characters such as Josiah Wedgwood are involved — biographically, and explains the processes of manufacture in simple terms. The reader is told where he may see the rarer pieces, and to help him in identification a list of marks is given where appropriate. In fact each volume covers its subject thoroughly, and John Bedford has performed a masterly feat of compression without allowing this fact to impair his fluent and easily assimilated style of writing.”Notes: Jacket designed by Sam Suliman.

Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers with some scuffing and marks. Text complete, clean and tight but slightly fragile now.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “When Britain’s railways were nationalised in 1948 more than nineteen thousand steam locomotives were taken over from the private companies, and the manufacture of steam locomotives continued until 1960. Thereafter they were rapidly displaced by diesels and electrics, and in 1968 steam haulage on British Railways ended. This book describes the principal classes of steam locomotive working actively in Britain between 1948 and 1968, with emphasis on those types of which examples have been preserved. The author discusses the engines under the headings express, mixed traffic, tank and freight locomotives, comparing designs inherited from the GWR, LMSR, LIMER and SR with the subsequent BR Standard classes. There is a useful list of locomotives that have been preserved telling where each can be seen, and there are many photographs of the engines at work.”Notes: Size: 8¼" x 5¾".

Light reading creases to the slightly bowed spine.Description: From the cover: “The Brody girls have always been a bit different from the rest of the folk in Angel Meadow, the appalling slum where their drunken mother Kitty is the lowest sort of prostitute. Then one day Kitty disappears from their lives forever — and this new crisis turns out to be a new beginning. Dr Nancy Brody, only nine years old, makes up her mind that she will not see little Mary and Rose in the workhouse. Determined to find a better way to live, she gets work for them all at the Monarch Cotton Manufacturing Mill — and then sets out to better herself and her sisters. Saving every penny, working every waking hour, pushing her less-ambitious sisters to the limits of their patience and loyalty, Nancy succeeds. She becomes an employer herself, buying the cloth for her own factory from the Monarch Mill where she was once a labourer. But happiness seems as elusive for Nancy as it was when she was a mistreated child. Though he once said he loved her, Mick O’Rourke has become Nancy’s worst enemy, and seems determined to take a terrible revenge on her and her sisters. And Josh Hayes, the man who truly loves Nancy, seems to be destined to be parted from her ...”Notes: Size: A Format (7" x 4½"). 536 pages.
