The Book of Exploration by Ray Howgego (£32.00)Publisher: Weidenfeld & Nicolson — 2009Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 9781407222752]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Charts; Colour Photographs; Maps; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “A chronological tour of the history of exploration by a prolific world traveller and one of the leading experts of our time, from the pioneering excursions of the ancient Egyptians to the first surface-based crossings of the top and bottom of the world.

Before the turn of the 19th century, ventures into uncharted lands required material or spiritual reward to justify the perils of shipwreck and hostile natives, and dangers yet unknown. Until recent times exploration for the sake of knowledge alone was rare, and mostly undertaken by intrepid traders, gold seekers and valiant Christian missionaries. In this book the author selects more than 150 of those he considers to be the most influential and unusual journeys of discovery, setting each firmly in its historical context. The book chronicles the personalities and motivations, the conditions that had to be endured, and the contribution that exploration has made to our knowledge of the world. It is replete with extraordinary personalities: the heroic adventurers who set out into the unknown, battling against the elements in order to commit their findings to journals and maps; the pioneers who risked everything in search of fabled riches; and the explorers who set out to conquer the deserts, poles and oceans of the globe.

The book is organized simply and chronologically, beautifully illustrated with contemporary maps, paintings, journal entries and other artefacts, and with entertaining asides and sometimes unorthodox interpretations based on the author’s lifetime study of the subject.”

Lugard in Africa by A. A. [Arthur Alexander] Thomson & Dorothy Middleton (£23.00)Publisher: London: Robert Hale — 1959Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with a little loss to the head of both panels and damp stain to the reverse. Upper board damp stained. Leans. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “HERE is the real-life adventure story of a man who landed in Africa at the age of thirty, disappointed in love, thwarted in ambition, and almost penniless. Destiny drew him adventuring to Lake Nyasa, where he organised a handful of traders and missionaries in their fight against the Arab slave traders and led them single-handed in a night-attack on the enemy stockade. Undeterred by a wound that pained him all the rest of his life, he blazed a trail to the Kingdom of Buganda, pressed on into virtually unknown territories further north, and, in a later journey, trekked to the heart of the savage Kalahari Desert. Then, at thirty-eight, he found his true life’s task in Nigeria, where he raised the West Africa Frontier Force, curbed the cruel and turbulent Emirs of the North and, in the years that followed, laid the foundations of good government on which the country has grown into a modern state with democratic institutions, looking forward to complete independence.

This man was Frederick Dealtry, Lord Lugard, the first and perhaps the greatest of Britain’s colonial administrators. Yet renowned as he was for his tremendous administrative achievements in West Africa, he was no ready-made governor, tailored in Whitehall. Nothing among his later successes is more vital and enthralling than the tale of those early African years — years of hardship and loneliness borne with incredible courage.

The story of these years under the harsh African sun is recounted in this stirring biography.”

Paul and Conflict Resolution: An Exegetical Study of Paul's Apostolic Paradigm in 1 Corinthians 9 by Robinson Butarbutar (£21.50)Publisher: Paternoster — 2007Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 9781842273159]Condition: Very Good.Description: From the cover: “This book is a literary and historical exegesis of Paul’s apostolic paradigm in 1 Corinthians 9. The author argues that chapter 9 is part and parcel of Paul’s unified arguments of 1 Corinthians 8-10, which are written to mediate in a dispute over food offered to idols. The questions of how the dispute emerged, how Paul arranges his arguments in the three chapters, and what role 1 Corinthians 9 has in the overall discourse are addressed carefully in the book. Moreover, the question of why Paul and his co-workers did not receive financial support from his audience, which was contrary to the practice of the other missionaries and the normal workforce of the time, and of why he uses such a practice as an example to be imitated by those insisting on their right to eat food offered to idols, are dealt with judiciously. Based on his exegesis of 1 Corinthians 9, the author furthermore attempts to see the relevance of 1 Corinthians 9 for dispute resolution today, taking the conflict within his own church as an example. .”Notes: Size: Trade Paperback (9¼" x 6").

The Pageant Of Chinese History by Elizabeth Seeger (£18.00)Publisher: Longmans, Green & Co. — 1943Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine of the dust wrapper with wear to the edges, nicked at the head of the spine, short tears to the tops of both upper and lower panel. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: 9th impression. [First Edition: April, 1934] Illustrated by way of: Black & White Drawings; Maps; Maps to the endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “AGAINST the background of a rich and ancient culture, Miss Seeger depicts in colourful, poetic prose the story of a nation, a continent rather than a country. A vast panorama it is — from about 3000 B. C. to the establishment of the Republic. Taking the Chinese point of view, as far as possible, the author has chosen from the wealth of legend and story those aspects which seem to symbolize Chinese civilization.

Beginning with the mythical accounts of nomad leaders and legendary kings, she traces the story through hundreds of years to a time of luxury and elegance, of art, literature, the making of porcelain, the invention of printing, and the flowering of painting and philosophy. Jesuit missionaries found their way to Peking, as had Marco Polo and other Europeans, nearly seven hundred years ago.

With the Manchu conquest foreigners were again excluded and wars followed with Europe. Finally the Chinese were forced to open their ports to trade and to admit foreign envoys to their emperor. Following the war with Japan, when Europeans seized the seaports, a period of vital interest to Western nations ended in the Boxer rebellion of 1900. The reforms following led finally to the establishment of the Republic.

Miss Seeger tells her story in human terms, and there emerges a vivid picture of the kind of people the Chinese have been, their family life, their humour and philosophy, as well as the long pageant of empire, of civil wars and conquest which have prefaced the present crisis. An introductory volume for readers of all ages.”

In the remote winter landscape a brutal massacre and the kidnapping of a young Iroquois girl violently re-ignites a deep rift between two tribes. The girl’s captor, Bird, is one of the Huron Nation’s great warriors and statesmen. Years have passed since the murder of his family and yet they are never far from his mind. In the girl, Snow Falls, he recognizes the ghost of his lost daughter, but as he fights for her heart and allegiance, small battles erupt into bigger wars as both tribes face a new, more dangerous threat from afar.

Travelling with the Huron is Christophe, a charismatic missionary who has found his calling among the tribe and devotes himself to learning and understanding their customs and language. An emissary from distant lands, he brings much more than his faith to this new world, with its natural beauty and riches.

As these three souls dance with each other through intricately woven acts of duplicity, their social, political and spiritual worlds collide — and a new nation rises from a world in flux.”

Three Centuries Of Mission by Daniel O'Connor (£13.50)Publisher: Continuum — 2000Binding: Paperback First Edition. [ISBN: 0826449883]Condition: Very Good+.Description: First in this edition. From the cover: “From colonial South Carolina to Mao’s China and from a slave plantation in Barbados to the anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa, the Church of England has been in mission through its chartered agency, the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel, since 1701, building a worldwide network of churches in the Anglican Communion. This new and expansive history, published to mark the Society’s tercentenary, tells a compelling global story. It includes a series of essays by an international group of scholars who add their distinctive perspectives: a history of mission to the Mohawks, the trials and achievements of missionary wives and discussion of the evolving role of the church in Bangladesh, Ghana and Zambia at the beginning of the new millennium.”Notes: Foreword or introduction by The Archbishop of Canterbury.

Tea: Addiction, Exploitation and Empire by Roy Moxham (£11.50)Publisher: Constable — 2003Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1841195693]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Leans slightly otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Plates; Maps;

From the cover: “Personal Column of The Times, November 1960: Tobacco or Tea Estate; young man (21), good A-levels (Science), now fruit farming, seeks position view management. Write Box Y. 1901, The Times, EC4. I only had one reply. A Mr. Maclean Kay wrote to say he owned a tea estate in Nyasaland, now Malawi, and was in Britain looking for a manager. If I was interested, I should arrange an appointment to meet him in Plantation House, Mincing Lane.

So began Roy Moxham’s five-year sojourn in colonial Malawi, managing 500 acres of tea and 1,000-plus workforce. His presence there, at the very end of Empire, was not fortuitous: tea production had been started in Africa by the British, with seed sent out to missionaries by the Royal Botanical Garden, Edinburgh.

Moxham’s experiences led him to investigate the history of tea, a fascinating tale but one that reflects little credit on the British Empire. When tea first reached Europe and America from China in the 17th century, its high price restricted its use to the wealthy. Heavy taxes led to murderous smuggling and eventually to the notorious Boston Tea Party; while in China the British brutally imposed the opium trade to finance its tea dealings. Intrepid and eccentric British planters flocked to India, Ceylon and Africa, and a million workers were moved on to the plantations, bought, sold and stolen like slaves.

Today the British addiction is shared by many: tea is easily the world’s most popular drink whose wholesome image belies its violent past, entertainingly though chillingly recounted here by Roy Moxham.”

From the flap: “The central event of this novel is a savage and seemingly inexplicable murder — about this hub revolves a panorama of life in contemporary Japan impressive in its complexity and insight. The Custom House is in some ways a saddening book, with its recurrent misunderstandings between West and East and its picture of people forever straining to rise above their limitations, the missionaries above their spiritual limitations, some of the Japanese above their intellectual limitations and others above the material limitations imposed by overpopulation and poverty. Yet since the book is like life in that it is never solely tragic, it flashes throughout its length with passages of delightful wit and humour.”Notes: Size: 8" x 5¼".

Her enemies claimed that she was more vicious and depraved than Messalina; crueller than Lucrezia Borgia; more despotic than Catherine the Great.

Out of the Rock… by Norman Bezzant (£10.50)Publisher: Heinemann — 1980Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0434069000]Condition: Good+ — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight but with mottling to the leading edge of both boards. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles;

From the cover: “The Roman legions and the Holy Roman missionaries who followed them were to endow successive patrons through fifteen hundred years with a respect and love for the limestones of Wessex. The granites of the Welsh mountains, where the Ordovices had cut primitive axes for their survival, became essential to the Industrial Revolution when canals, roads, and railways all needed stone.

Here, stories of Inigo Jones, Christopher Wren, John Wood, Brunei, Telford and McAdam reveal the progress of building and the development of transport systems as the harnessing of steam — to be followed shortly by electricity and oil — brought power and mechanization to industry.

Out of the Rock… tells the story of the first sixty years’ development of The Bath and Portland Group, now preeminent in the stone industry. But the author has seen his subject as a cornerstone of history, putting the important and fascinating contribution made by the Group into perspective with England’s political, social, and industrial history. In the broad sweep chosen by the author from prehistory to the Second World War, a pattern of cause and effect between science and history has been woven, to show man’s discoveries of long ago as forerunners of the sophisticated world we know today.”

Amazon Task Force by Peter Dixon in collaboration with Dick Bell (£9.50)Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton — 1984Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0340327138]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper is water marked on the reverse at the foot of the spine. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “High in the Peruvian Andes, glaciers bleed white water. Trickle becomes stream, stream becomes river — and the ‘Great Speaker’, Rio Apurimac, the Amazon source tributary is born.

It was to this forbidding terrain that the combined services expedition came in a specially designed hovercraft. Through the territories of primitive tribes people, guerrillas and cocaine drug runners, they successfully extended the navigable length of the Amazon.

Medical services were provided where none had existed before. Water supplies were purified and, freed from parasites, and countless Indians were treated. The work of Christian missionaries was greatly advanced, and a positive legacy, both spiritual and material, was left behind.

AMAZON TASK FORCE is a story of breathtaking Christian adventure, described by the BBC as the ‘most positive British action for restoration of good relations during a difficult year in South America’..”

Previous owners' inscription to the first blank.Description: The Authorized Biography. First in this edition. From the cover: “Hannah Hurnard was an unhappy child — haunted by terror, afflicted with a dreadful stammer and a fear of crowds. School was a torment. Despite a luxurious and aristocratic upbringing Hannah lived in a ‘cold, dark winterland of fear’. The experience of those years would be reflected in ‘Hinds Feet on High Places’. The transformation came in July 1924, when Hannah, aged 19, attended the Keswick Convention. ‘With the decision to follow Jesus came the cleansing fire of the Holy Spirit,’ writes John Wood. The experience led to Bible College, service as a missionary in Israel, and a string of best-sellers. Her masterpiece, ‘Hinds Feet on High Places’, has sold over 1 million copies.”Notes: Size: B Format (7¾" x 5¼").

Lower edges of the boards slightly rubbed.Description: From the cover: “Kenneth N. Taylor, the translator of the best-known and most widely-read modern-language Bible, lends his fresh style and lively insights to this highly informative book for new Christians.

Taylor covers the spiritual gamut of your decision — from personal quiet time to life-style to decision making — with scriptural wisdom. And he gives warning about the subtle forces of evil that will work to erode your enthusiasm and convictions.

Organized in five parts, How to Grow walks you through your important first steps. Among the subjects are: ‘Knowing God’s Love’ (the Holy Spirit, the fruit of the Spirit); ‘Tapping God’s Power’ (confession, Bible reading, prayer, faith); ‘Obeying God’s Commands’ (hindrances, life-style); ‘Fulfilling God’s Plan’ (talents and gifts, decision making, joining a church, sharing Jesus); and ‘Facing Some Issues’ (frequently asked questions and answers).

Almost two hundred Bible verses provide the foundation for Taylor’s How to Grow, making this a trustworthy companion for those who want to mature in their Christian walk.”

Out of the Rock… by Norman Bezzant (£9.50)Publisher: Heinemann — 1980Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0434069000]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little ruffled at the head of the upper panel otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Jacket illustration: Prior Park at Combe Down, built by Ralph Allen. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “The Roman legions and the Holy Roman missionaries who followed them were to endow successive patrons through fifteen hundred years with a respect and love for the limestones of Wessex. The granites of the Welsh mountains, where the Ordovices had cut primitive axes for their survival, became essential to the Industrial Revolution when canals, roads, and railways all needed stone.

Here, stories of Inigo Jones, Christopher Wren, John Wood, Brunei, Telford and McAdam reveal the progress of building and the development of transport systems as the harnessing of steam — to be followed shortly by electricity and oil — brought power and mechanization to industry.

Out of the Rock… tells the story of the first sixty years’ development of The Bath and Portland Group, now preeminent in the stone industry. But the author has seen his subject as a cornerstone of history, putting the important and fascinating contribution made by the Group into perspective with England’s political, social, and industrial history. In the broad sweep chosen by the author from prehistory to the Second World War, a pattern of cause and effect between science and history has been woven, to show man’s discoveries of long ago as forerunners of the sophisticated world we know today.”

Sweden and Britain: A Thousand Years of Friendship / Sverige Och Storbritannien: Tusen A°r Av Va¨nskap by Colin Nutley, Bo Jarborg, Ingvar Svanberg, Mattias Tyden, Nils Andren & Anders Clason (£9.50)Publisher: Svenska Institue, Stockholm — 1997Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 9152004724]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Card wrapper very lightly marked otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Parallel text in English and Swedish. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Drawings; Colour Drawings; Maps;

From the cover: “In 1654, Queen Kristina of Sweden and Oliver Cromwell of England signed a friendship pact which, according to Gunnar Hagglof, one-time Swedish ambassador in London, “is still in force and has never been broken”. Yet the history of contacts between the two countries reaches back much further than this — to the Viking raiders and traders and to the English missionaries who penetrated deep into what was to become Sweden.

Here, four authors address these contacts from a number of angles: political relations, cultural links, migration, and the scientific and social ties between the two countries. We have also invited a Briton and a Swede, each a long-time resident of the ‘other’ country, to reflect upon their experiences.

Sweden And Britain is the first title in a series which will look at the history of Sweden’s relations with the other member states of the European Union.”

The Real Jesus: How Much Can We Believe? by David L. Edwards (£6.00)Publisher: Fount — 1992Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0006276377]Condition: Very Good. Edges of the text block lightly tanned.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “By the year 2000 it is estimated that about 2 billion people will say these words as part of the Creed. But who was this Jesus? How could the son of a carpenter from Nazareth also be God? How can a crucified convict also be the living Lord? If Christians disagree on the facts of the matter, why should anybody else agree? The Real Jesus is a compelling and readable journey to the very heart of Christianity, by one of its most distinguished commentators. It finds no less than eight different ‘gospels’ in the New Testament, each representing Jesus in a slightly different way. Out of this diversity, a unity emerges which is both credible and appropriate to the new millennium ahead.”Notes: Jacket designed by David Wood. Size: B Format (7¾" x 5¼"). 276 pages.

Ethics and the New Testament by J. L. Houlden (£5.50)Publisher: Penguin — 1973Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0140215735]Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Pages lightly age-tanned.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “For centuries well-meaning Christians have referred to the New Testament for guidance on moral conduct. But did the writers of the New Testament themselves agree on such questions as divorce, political obedience, wealth, and the toleration of other religions? And have their often inconsistent views any relevance today? In Ethics and the New Testament the Principal of Cuddesdon Theological College applies strict critical standards to the gospels, epistles and other writings, which he examines in historical perspective. His explanation of contemporary attitudes — including Gnosticism — helps to clarify the striking moral differences between Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, James and Paul. Probing farther back, the author attempts to descry, behind the interpretations of apostolic ‘editors’, the ethical standards and teachings of Jesus himself. And finally he relates the moral injunctions of Christianity’s central text to the modern age.”Notes: Jacket designed by Germano Facetti. Size: A Format (7" x 4½").

Cinderella With Amnesia by Michael Griffiths (£4.00)Publisher: Inter-Varsity Press — 1975Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0851103812]Condition: Poor. An reliable reading copy, with edge wear to the wraps, tanning and light dog-earing of the leaves. Text complete, and acceptable mind. Pages deeply tanned by age.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “The bride of Christ today seems like a Cinderella in the ashes, forgotten by the world and oblivious of her glorious destiny. Why is she failing to be what she is — the dynamic, beautiful, caring community for which the present generation is seeking? This restatement of the Bible’s teaching about the church is a sound remedy for our strange amnesia. It includes practical chapters on the place of the family and of Christian student groups, the nature of worship and the purpose of mission.”Notes: Size: A Format (7" x 4½"). 176 pages.

Growing Up in New Guinea: A Comparative Study of Primitive Education by Margaret Mead (£4.00)Publisher: Penguin — 1963Binding: Paperback Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Single reading crease to the spine. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Pages gently age tanned. Description: Number A117 in the series.

From the cover: “Growing Up In New Guinea was first published in 1930, when it was recognized as an original and important contribution to the theory of education. Like Coming of Age in Samoa, it comments critically and provocatively on a number of vital problems of modern life.

On the island of Manus, in the Admiralty Group, Margaret Mead found an isolated community untouched by missionaries or foreign trade. Here she watched the children grow up-schooled as babies to the hazards of the sea, sure-footed, quick-handed, with perfect physical adjustment to life.

Starting with one small section of human society, the author goes on in the second part of her book to the larger aspects of educational and emotional problems in the ‘civilized’ world of today.”

But to the country's pioneering medical missionaries it has always been seen as a potential agent for life — a possible highway through the mountains, linking homes with hospitals. Taking specially-designed new hovercraft, a 26-man British Joint Services Expedition set out to try to harness the previously unnavigable river. Journey to the Fourth World is the leader's account of this adventurous and testing expedition and its results in and beyond Nepal.”Notes: Foreword or introduction by Sir Neil Cameron.
