The Oil Engine Manual by D. S. D. [Denys Stephen Dodsley] Williams (£69.00)Publisher: Temple Press — 1956Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with nicks at the spine ends and a short, triangular, crease and tear to the foot of the upper panel. Tanning to the blanks. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise. Description: 6th edition, 1st printing, [First Published: 1939] Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Graphs [1 Fold-Out]; Diagrams; Tables; Period Advertisements;

From the cover: “The first edition of this Manual appeared some 16 years ago and later editions were widely used as books of instruction during the Second World War. Considerable developments in engine design and a variety of applications took place during the period covered by the preceding five editions. In more recent years, however, the pace has, far from slackening, actually accelerated, so that the fundamental background of oil engine design has undergone considerable changes. The number of manufacturers has varied, whilst their power ranges have been made more extensive, even though the actual number of engine models has decreased somewhat through rationalization.

This new edition of “The Oil Engine” Manual has been very largely rewritten to cover changes occurring during the past five years. It is now fully up-to-date, as is only possible when the work is produced in the office of a journal dealing with the subject on a full time and highly specialized basis.

Chapters in the first part of the Manual give the background for engine design (of various forms) for all duties other than marine applications. In the second part, leading details are given of all the current makes of oil engine constructed in the United Kingdom, again for all purposes other than ship and boat duties. The third and final part is a technical appendix, which will be found useful, not only for those concerned with engine manufacture, but for those engaged in the use of such prime movers. Students also will find the whole book of permanent value to them in their work relating to this type of heat engine.”

This book takes you behind the scenes at companies that are leading the way in developing and deploying enterprise risk management.

Character Steins: A Collector's Guide by Eugene V. Manusov & Mike Wald (£22.00)Publisher: Cornwall — 1987Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0845347845]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper has a tape reinforcement to the reverse of the head of the spine. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “This comprehensive book provides a finely illustrated guide to the field of character stein collecting. These unique figural pieces, usually not cylindrical, are modeled so that the body and lid form a caricature, a figure, or an object. The fanciful imagery of the steins is always imaginative, and sometimes comical. An eclectic variety of creations are depicted in the steins: people (monks, historic personages, military figures, mythological characters); animals (horses, lions, foxes’ heads — even a rhinoceros); and objects (skulls, sports equipment, buildings, for example).

The book thoroughly examines each of these and is arranged according to subject depicted, each chapter treating a different category. The result is an intriguing picture catalog containing over 600 illustrations of steins and stein-related items, many of which are in full color. Each illustration is accompanied by a brief description that includes the stein’s dimensions, its coloring, a translation of old German inscriptions, an explanation of what the stein represents, and the manufacturers (if known). The text also offers an extensive listing of the manufacturer’s marks that are found on many of the steins.

Several special chapters written by authorities on character steins have been included in the book: Jack G. Lowenstein writes about Beer Stein Ceramics, Ron Fox tells How Musterschutz Character Steins Were Made, and the late Dr. J. Joseph Hersh contributed an interesting chapter on The Hexagram as the Brewer’s Symbol. There are also chapters on contemporary steins and the artifacts relating to them, and a concise history of antique character drinking vessels. Since the publication of the Encyclopedia of Character Steins in 1976, old and new character stein collectors have brought forth a number of previously unknown steins. The book includes pictures of these newly discovered steins, and complements them with a fascinating section that outlines new facts that have come to light concerning the intricacies of this absorbing field of study. The chapter Musterschutz and the Elusive # Mark sheds light on the identity of the manufacturer of the popular so-called Musterschutz steins.

Collectors like Werner Sahm, Roland Henschen, and Lotti Lopez, through diligent searching, have been able to obtain copies of many original stein manufacturers’ catalogs, some pages of which show original sketches or photos of character steins. Because of this research, the authors are able to display in the Old Catalogs portion of the book some of these exciting finds from manufacturers such as Rosskopf & Gerz, Steinzeugwerke, Reinhold Hanke, Mer-kelbach & Wick, Marzi & Remy, and J. W. Remy. These catalogs facilitated the search to identify the previously unknown makers of many character steins.

In addition to these catalogs, much new information has come from researchers who have recently published their results in Prosit, the quarterly publication of Stein Collectors International. While much progress has been made in determining manufacturers, there is still much to be discovered. Answers always seem to raise new questions; new character steins that are “found” occasionally fill in known gaps, but more often seem to carry still unknown marks or styles. Gene Manusov’s and Mike Wald’s enthusiasm for the study and collection of character steins is infectious. In this highly informative work, collectors, dealers, and antique lovers will enjoy their beautiful pictures supplemented by their stimulating perceptive text.”

The Efficiency Experts: An Impartial Survey of Management Consultancy by Laura Tatham (£18.00)Publisher: Business Publications — 1964Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. 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.”

Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Signed by the author [Rex Adams] on the first blank — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. A study of the National Shipbuilding and Engineering dispute of 1957. From the introduction: “During 1956 the Leverhulme Trustees made a grant to Nuffield College for research in industrial relations over a period of seven years. The College thereupon began to plan projects to be carried out within the terms of the grant, and work commenced in the autumn of 1956. When a national shipbuilding strike was called in March 1957, and followed by an engineering strike, it seemed such an important event within the field of industrial relations that other work was temporarily laid aside to permit us to concentrate on a study of the strike. This book is the result.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾". Red boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 179 pages.

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.”

Description: 2nd edition, 1st printing, [First Published: 1997] Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “Mankind has always been fascinated by firearms. Over the centuries, rifles and carbines have been used to wage war, to hunt, and for sport. Most hunters and sports marksmen have at least one rifle or carbine in their collections. You will find most, though not all, of the current makes, models, and calibres in this book. The range produced by arms manufacturers is so huge that some types had of necessity to be omitted, but all the modern, most popular rifles and carbines are dealt with in detail.

This encyclopaedia is a true catalogue of modern rifles and carbines. Starting from the development of the firearm, the author moves on to discuss weapons technology in considerable detail. Safety and the use of firearms are covered in depth. There are full and dear explanations of such technical aspects of firearms as safety catches and locking mechanisms. The types of ammunition suitable for rifles and carbines are also discussed.”

Performance Cars by Jonathan Wood (£10.50)Publisher: Parragon — 1999Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0752531549]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs and tables. From the cover: “FASTEN YOUR seat belts and get ready for some serious action. Between these covers will be found a galaxy of the world’s fastest and most glamorous motor cars. Built for high speed, and with beautiful lines to match, performance cars are designed for maximum driver enjoyment. In this stunningly illustrated survey author Jonathan Wood takes you behind the controls of some of the world’s most famous fast cars, whether it’s the wildly impractical 200mph Mercedes-Benz CLK-GTR from Germany, the zippy Mazda MX-5 from Japan, Britain’s popular MGF or America’s latest classic Chevrolet Corvette.

Performance cars come in all shapes and sizes, and in recent years a number of smaller independent manufacturers have joined the fray with a variety of individual, and sometimes downright eccentric, designs that raise a smile while still being able to hold their own at the traffic-light burn-up! Such racing car-inspired concepts as the Light Car Company’s Rocket and the Dare DZ are reminders that performance motoring is as much about fun as velocity.

Each car is fully described in an entry that incorporates a design history and a summary of its main model variants, while a fact-filled specification table lists all the vital data including top speed and the all-important acceleration times that allow readers to make comparisons between their particular favourites.

Whether you have a performance car in your garage, are an aspiring owner looking for the right model for you, or simply a motoring fan who loves to dream, you will find a feast to enjoy within these colourful pages.”

The Encyclopedia of Formula One: The New Definitive Guide to the Drivers, Cars, Circuits and Every World Championship Since 1950 by Tim Hill & Gareth Thomas (£10.50)Publisher: Parragon — 2009Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 9781407566795]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 & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Maps; Results Tables;

From the cover: “When the internal combustion engine was developed in the late nineteenth century, there were those who viewed it purely in utilitarian terms, as simply another means of getting from A to B. And there were those who wanted to test their vehicles — and themselves — to the absolute limit; to get from A to B quicker than anyone else. More than a century has passed since the days of the spectacular inter-city races which launched a new field of sporting endeavour. But the raw appeal remains the same: man and machine operating as one in high-risk, high-reward gladiatorial combat.

The chase for the victors’ laurels gained fresh momentum in 1950, when the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile launched the world championship. The 30 men who have held the coveted title to date include legendary names who would feature in any list of all-time greats: Fangio, Brabham, Clark, Stewart, Senna, Prost, Schumacher. Others came agonisingly close to gaining a seat at the top table. Stirling Moss missed out narrowly on several occasions, Wolfgang von Trips was killed when the 1961 title lay within his grasp, while team orders robbed the mercurial Gilles Villeneuve of the crown in 1979.

This book chronicles the history of the world championship, from Giuseppe Farina’s victory for Alfa Romeo at Silverstone on 13 May 1950 to the present day. All the top drivers are profiled, and there is a wealth of information on the major Marques and championship venues, while the comprehensive statistics section will settle many an argument. It is a story of ingenuity and endeavour, rivalry and camaraderie, triumph and tragedy, in pursuit of the greatest prize in motor sport.”

Beautiful Body, Beautiful Skin: Top-To-Toe Skin Care For Everyone by Norma Knox (£9.50)Publisher: Piatkus — 1990Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0861889568]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs and line drawings. From the cover: “Caring for your skin and body is the basis of looking and feeling good. However, with so much conflicting information from ‘experts’, manufacturers and the media it is difficult to know what is best for you and your family.

So how does the ordinary person work out a sensible skincare and bodycare regime? In Beautiful Body, Beautiful Skin, Norma Knox sorts out the truth from the hype and gives sensible, down-to-earth advice. She explains simply and directly the basic types of ingredients used in the beauty business and the effects they have. She also gives practical advice on skin care for all members of the family and explains how to deal with problem and allergy-prone skins.

Norma Knox goes on to examine the relationship between diet and exercise and a healthy skin, and pinpoints the foods and exercise routines essential for maintaining skin and body in optimum condition. She reveals the pros and cons of sunbathing, massage and dieting, looks at various salon treatments available, and assesses the case for cosmetic surgery.

Carefully researched and well-designed and illustrated, Beautiful Body, Beautiful Skin is destined to become the most popular and practical handbook on skin and body care. It is a book which no family should be without.”

English Cricket: The Game and Its Players Through the Ages by Christopher Brookes (£9.50)Publisher: Readers Union — 1978Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Heavily faded at the spine of the dust wrapper which is somewhat wrinkled overall. Small damp mark to the bottom corner of the first blank. Pages deeply tanned by age.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Most people will have heard by now or the Australian television magnate, Kerry Packer, and his projected cricketing circus. Few, however, will realise that Mr Packer’s ideas are not original. Over a century ago, the cricketing world was rocked to its foundations by a similar crisis, sparked off on that occasion by the formation of the first team of wandering professionals, Willam Clarke’s All-England XI.

While commercial adventurers like Kerry Packer are therefore nothing new to cricket, Dr Brookes’ portrayal of their activities and influence, and indeed of the whole evolution of cricket in England over the past five hundred years, marks a radical departure from previous histories of the game. Based on a thorough re-examination of the game’s past, and on a series of interviews with first-class cricketers, it presents a detailed account of the major stages in the game’s development: the medieval folk-game; the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries when cricket prospered as a favourite pastime of the aristocracy and gentry; the era of the professional XIs; the rise of county cricket; and finally the arrival of the modern, highly commercialized sport.

Dr Brookes sets out to refute the usual dogmas which have misled previous generations of historians, whether they concern the origins of the game, the role of the MCC, of the public schools, of the ‘gentlemen’ and the ‘players’ or the modern cricketer, by showing how cricket’s development was inextricably linked to the development of English society itself. At a time when the entire game is in the throes of further upheaval, his deeply researched, thought-provoking and challenging book is essential reading for all students and lovers of cricket.”

Managing the Message by Peter Hobday (£9.50)Publisher: London: London House — 2000Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1902809181]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the spine ends and corners with commensurate wear to the dust wrapper. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Description: From the cover: “Question: when is a textbook, not a text book? Answer: when the writer does not ‘lecture’ on the range of experiences and observations in a style which is tutorial and dull, but is entertaining and discursive.

Peter Hobday is one of Britain’s best known broadcasters who has spent much of his career experiencing people ‘managing the message’. Across his studio table he has interviewed world political leaders, union bosses, the PR chiefs of top international companies and the representatives of pressure groups, each seeking to influence how their case is put across by the media. He has seen supremely efficient message managers and abject failures.

We can all recall politicians squirming under the pressure from the media interviewer, desperately trying to stay ‘on the message,’ arguing the case he wants to make rather than being led the way of the questioner. We can recall the PR disasters which have befallen manufacturers whose spokesman has got the ‘message’ wrong, perhaps only by the poor use of words. And the campaigner, who stridently calls for us to listen to his viewpoint, can either cause us to cheer or sneer, depending on how well he puts his message across.

This is a book from the cutting edge of the media that will enthral anyone with connections with that industry. It will, however, also instruct and entertain the most ambitious of young managers with PR responsibilities or the company boss who wants to know how to use good news and be ready to protect himself from the effects of the bad. It will even assist the village group seeking to promote (or stop) the building of a by-pass! For any observer of the modern world it will provide a salutary lesson on its power of the media whilst confirming that it can be influenced by those with a well-defined strategy and efficient message.”

Oprah Winfrey: The Real Story by George Mair (£9.50)Publisher: Aurum — 1995Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1854103261]Condition: Good+ — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Pages deeply tanned by age.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Born illegitimate and virtually abandoned in the Deep South, Oprah is a living symbol of hope and success. A black woman in a business dominated by white males, she has made it to the top with remarkable determination and talent.

Raised at first by her grandmother on a Mississippi farm, Oprah shuttled between Milwaukee, where her mother had moved, and Nashville, where her father and her stepmother, Zelma, lived. Oprah grew up in a tiny ghetto apartment with her mother’s relatives, where at one point she was raped. She began to live a wild, promiscuous life, until 1968, when Vernon and Zelma took her in.

Ambitious and precocious, she got her first job with radio station WVOL while in her senior year of high school. Soon she was winning beauty contests, and in 1973 she was hired by television station WTVF-TV in Nashville at the age of nineteen. To work there she left college to become the first female and the first black newscaster in Nashville, earning $15,000 a year. The Oprah Winfrey we know today was on her way.

Oprah Winfrey: The Real Story reveals, often for the very first time:

  • The story of her best friend, Gayle King, who was there for her when Oprah contemplated suicide.
  • The inside story of Oprah’s long, on-camera battle with dieting and why she now says, "DIETS DON’T WORK!"
  • How she spent part of the $89 million she made in 1993 on gifts to friends and staff, donations to schools and charities and financing to finish Spike Lee’s Malcolm X.
  • The little known ultra-right-wing connections of Oprah’s boyfriend ancl "husband-to-be," Stedman Graham. The behind-the-scenes deals made by Oprah’s staff with manufacturers to plant shills on the show.
  • The very private conflict over whether or not she will have another baby-she first miscarried when she was a teenager-now that she has turned forty.”

The Visible Persuaders by Denis Thomas (£9.50)Publisher: Hutchinson — 1967Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with triangular tears, with loss, to the head of both panels. Description: From the cover: “THE VISIBLE PERSUADERS is a fresh assessment of how the advertising industry thinks and works. It rejects the modish view that ‘hidden persuaders’ manipulate human desires. Instead, based on examples of current practice, it shows how advertising has emerged as the biggest single force in discovering people’s wants and in helping manufacturers to meet them. It examines advertising in both its economic and social aspects, and relates its language and imagery to the popular arts of the day.

Denis Thomas, a writer, editor and critic of wide range and experience, discusses the ways of the advertising world with insight and candour. This is a book to be read by everyone interested or involved in commercial persuasion who seeks a clear-sighted view of advertising’s place in the modern world.”

The Railways of Bristol and Somerset by Martin Smith (£8.50)Publisher: Shepperton: Ian Allan Ltd — 1992Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0711020639]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and the top corners of the boards with commensurate wear to the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Contains: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Maps; Tables; Plans;

From the cover: “Despite having the city of Bristol at its heart, Somerset was an unlikely part of the country to be at the forefront of Britain’s railway development. And yet, it was the businessmen of Bristol who were amongst the most important promoters of the Great Western Railway and of the Bristol & Exeter — the twin cornerstones of Brunei’s broad-gauge empire — which eventually gave God’s Wonderful Railway a pre-eminence both in the region and in the surrounding country.

The Great Western did not have it all its own way, however, with the expansion of the Midland Railway into both Bristol and Bath and then, through the immortal Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway a link to the London & South Western Railway at Bournemouth. Competition and industrial growth, such as the development of the Somerset coalfield, led to the construction of a complex network of lines. Whilst, inevitably, many of these lines have now closed, others survive — indeed thrive — into the 1990s.

In The Railways of Bristol and Somerset Martin Smith provides a detailed history of his home county. He examines the main lines and the branch lines, the much-mourned Somerset & Dorset, the important industrial lines and manufacturers — don’t forget that many of Britain’s most famous locomotive manufacturers were based in Bristol — from the earliest years of the railway revolution through to the modern age.

Superbly illustrated with both historic photographs and line drawings The Railways of Bristol and Somerset is a fascinating reminder of the railway history of one of Britain’s most important counties.”
