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.”

Human Nature: Fact and Fiction by Edited by Robin Headlam Wells & Johnjoe McFadden (£59.50)Publisher: Continuum — 2006Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0826485464]Condition: Near Fine.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “What do we mean by ‘human nature’? Is there a genetically determined core of humanity that unites us all as members of a single species? Or is the thing we call human nature a social construct? And how do we explain the mystery of human creativity? Do great writers have an intuitive grasp of what makes human beings tick, or are they merely the mouthpiece of contemporary culture? It has been claimed that ‘the greatest enterprise of the mind has always been and always will be the attempted linkage of the sciences and humanities’ (Edward O. Wilson). This ground-breaking book marks the beginning of a new dialogue between the two. Rather than focusing on the division between what C.P. Snow called ‘the two cultures’, it shows that the sciences and humanities have much to learn from each other. Points of disagreement remain. Yet there is in this volume a genuine attempt to bridge the gulf that has traditionally separated the sciences and humanities and to reach a better understanding of what it means to be human. Human Nature — Fact and Fiction is a major new contribution to the debate on human nature, set to be required reading for anyone with a background in either the arts or the sciences who is interested in understanding what defines us as human beings — in what we are, and why.”Notes: Foreword or introduction by A.

Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs [80]; Colour Photographs [100]; Black & White Drawings; Maps;

From the cover: “Chinese Pottery and Porcelain is a comprehensive survey of the development of ceramics from the Neolithic period to the present day. Assessing the roles pottery has played in each dynasty throughout the history of China, the author also discusses its enormous impact on the ceramic industries of the rest of the world, where Chinese porcelain has been admired and collected for centuries.

From the earliest earthenwares to the exotic burial figures of the Tang, from the classic forms and subtle glazes of the Song to the famous porcelains created especially for export or imperial tastes, the book draws upon the extensive collections of the British Museum for lavish illustration.

The author considers the purposes for which the ceramics of each period were made, how their production was organised, and what effect local conditions might have had on their final forms. Incorporating contemporary commentaries, recent archaeological evidence from kiln sites and the most up-to-date scientific analysis, the book provides a valuable new account of China’s ceramic history.”

Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Contains: Colour photographs; Title page vignette;

From the cover: “This is an international guide to the hairwing and tube flies in modern use. These flies are the most popular and widely-used ‘family’ of flies fished by today’s salmon anglers. They are simple to tie, robust in the water, and have tremendous fish-catching properties which are recognised by anglers on both sides of the Atlantic. In addition to all the classic patterns and their many variants, this book includes flies devised by the world’s leading contemporary flytyers.

Chris Mann, whose remarkable illustrations portray the salmon flies and their materials with clinical precision and accuracy of colour, has made his selection from hundreds of the very best hairwing patterns. In most cases his illustrations are based directly on the flies submitted by the flytyer-contributors.

North American and European salmon anglers and flytyers have much to learn from each others’ hairwing fly patterns. This book, a companion volume to Shrimp & Spey Flies for Salmon, will inspire flytyers to try a whole range of exciting new patterns, tying techniques, colours and materials.”

The Handyman In The Home: In 3 Volumes by Edited by Arthur W. Judge (£40.00)Publisher: Caxton Publishing Company — 1956Binding: Hardback Condition: Very Good. Pages lightly age-tanned otherwise a pleasant set.Description: September Reprint of the 2nd Edition. [First: 1930] Illustrated with black and white photographs & diagrams. From the preface: “As its title indicates, this work has been prepared expressly for the practical handyman desirous of undertaking a wide variety of jobs connected with the home, garden, garage and small workshop, including not only the domestic repairs and renovations that become necessary from time to time but also useful improvements and additions to the home and its contents. The keen home dweller, with a knowledge of the use of the simple tools and materials described in these volumes, can not only tackle most household repairs and additions expeditiously, but also avoid a good deal of expense. Apart from these considerations, there is always the satisfaction associated with the completion of a job that would otherwise have meant calling in someone else for the purpose. In addition to the extensive range of household repairs, fittings, furniture and other relevant items dealt with in this work, there are also a number of sections, including those on homecrafts, hobbies, sports accessories, outdoor constructions, etc., which will be found both useful and profitable to the handyman and housewife. Since many of the articles in these volumes deal with woodwork repairs and new constructions, it was considered desirable to include a comprehensive section, written by a well-known expert in such matters, on the subject of carpentry and woodworking tools, so that the reader who is not very well acquainted with the use of the latter can improve both his knowledge and experience.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 7".

Interpreting the Figure in Watercolor by Don Andrews (£34.00)Publisher: Watson Guptill Publications — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0823025489]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper which is slightly pulled at the head of the upper panel and has a light stain to the reverse of the same. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: A Later Printing. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “Figure painting is considered by many artists to be the most intriguing subject matter of all. But when forced to paint the figure from a laborious, anatomical point of view; artists often become discouraged. Well-known workshop artist Don Andrews advances the idea that the figure can be approached with the same creative attitude with which artists approach the landscape or still life. His emphasis is not on what you know, but on what you see. As demonstrated by Andrews in this book, the task of the painter is to organize, not report. Not only is this method easier, it results in better paintings as well.

Interpreting the Figure in Watercolor takes on a challenging subject: showing how the figure can be painted creatively and beautifully in watercolor through simplification, interpretation, and shape-making. In explaining how to capture the essence of the human figure, Andrews provides basic information about materials and discusses such techniques as gesture drawing and gesture painting; defining the figure with light and shadow and linking darks and lights for unity; introducing backgrounds; creating visual interest; edge quality; color granulation and temperature; middle value construction of the figure; using whites to “turn on the light”; and working from the model and photographs — but leaves readers free to make their own personal statements, to develop their own “how-to”. By carefully observing, interpreting, and then painting what you see, you can achieve very convincing and appealing likenesses of people.

Andrews’ unique approach to painting the figure is designed to teach artists at every level to overcome the obstacles of figure painting. His accessible style will help watercolorists improve their handling of the medium and rendering of the figure dramatically.”

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

Dust wrapper pleasant overall but has two short closed tears to the top edge, one at the head of the spine and the other at the head of the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight. Box a little faded and marked but more than acceptable.Description: 41 colour plates. 87 black and white illustrations. 78 explanatory diagrams. From the cover: “The flower as a decorative object is an integral part of the home and in recent times has become an important element in the art of interior design. Here, for the first time, the national styles of Germany, England, France, Italy and Scandinavia have been compared, each influenced by the particular climate, way of life, and artistic history of their country. The book begins with the study of basic forms and techniques; later the amateur is taught how to exploit the natural beauty of flowers, how to see colours and arrange a design which will blend in with its setting. The flower arrangements are shown simply and clearly; explanatory diagrams of their construction appear next to the magnificent colour plates or black and white illustrations, most of which have been especially photographed for this book. The author, a specialist in the art of decoration, writes in collaboration with Jacques Bedat, an eminent florist, who created many of the flower arrangements reproduced, and whose creative fantasy is shown in his arrangements for the Rothschilds, the Duchess of Windsor, Renault, Citroen and many others. The Art of Flowers is dedicated to the flower-lover, whether the source of his pleasure is growing, arranging or just looking at flowers.”Notes: Illustrated by Jacques Bedat. Size: 9¾" x 10¼".

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.”

The Encyclopedia of Modelmaking Techniques by Christopher Payne (£18.50)Publisher: New Burlington — 1996Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1861555407]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Slightly rubbed at the spine ends. The reverse of the dust wrapper has offset from a scrape to the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Drawings; Diagrams;

From the cover: “The Encyclopedia of Modelmaking Techniques presents an entirely new techniques-based approach to modelmaking. Materials, methods and components used in one area of modelmaking can often be transferred to another with very positive results. Rather than dealing with traditional subject areas, four main themes are identified — Structures, Landscapes, Figures and animals and Vehicles and machinery — and used to demonstrate the relevant techniques for a variety of materials. This approach enables the professional or hobby building modeller to access the section on figures to populate his landscape. Similarly, the military figure or vehicle modeller can find in the landscape section the secrets for placing his work in a background context.

This book also includes a brief history of models and modelmaking. A section on design looks at the different processes of research and construction and designing specifically for safety, ease of construction, display, control and operation. Comprehensive tools and materials lists identify both essential and supplementary items and ensure that you have the correct tools for your modelling projects.

Each of the four major themes is illustrated by a series of step-by-step projects, demonstrating the various techniques and materials used in professional and hobby modelmaking. An inspirational gallery of works by highly regarded modelmakers is accompanied by detailed descriptions of how the models were created. Finally, a section on presentation will show you how to make the most of your projects by displaying them to their best effect.”
