Notes From a Small Island by Bill Bryson (£6.50)Publisher: Black Swan — 1996Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0552996009]Condition: Very Good. Pages lightly age-tanned.Description: From the cover: “After nearly two decades in Britain, Bill Bryson took the decision to move back to the States for a while, to let his kids experience life in another country, to give his wife the chance to shop until 10 p.m. seven nights a week, and, most of all, because he had read that 3.7 million Americans believed that they had been abducted by aliens at one time or another, and it was thus clear to him that his people needed him. But before leaving his much-loved home in North Yorkshire, Bryson insisted on taking one last trip around Britain, a sort of valedictory tour of the green and kindly island that had so long been his home. His aim was to take stock of the nation’s public face and private parts (as it were), and to analyse what precisely it was he loved so much about a country that had produced Marmite, a military hero whose dying wish was to be kissed by a fellow named Hardy, place names like Farleigh Wallop, Titsey and Shellow Bowells, people who said ‘Mustn’t grumble’, and Gardeners’ Question Time.”Notes: Size: B Format (7¾" x 5¼"). 352 pages.

Writing Technical Reports by Bruce M. Cooper (£4.00)Publisher: Penguin — 1965Binding: Paperback Condition: Good. An adequate reading copy only. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wraps. Pages lightly age-tanned.Description: From the cover: “This new Pelican offers to scientists, engineers, and ethers the main principles of writing a technical report, from first draft to final version. Bruce Cooper, who heads a department of liberal studies in a technical college, maintains that a report needs to be more than a vehicle for recording exact information. It is, in fact, an exercise in human relations, in which clarity is certainly as important as correctness. The varying outlooks of the potential readers must be considered as thoroughly as the factual contents of the report. Arguing strongly for personal involvement in the writer — to the extent, if necessary, of employing the first person singular — the author gives advice on the structure of the whole report, on grammar, on the construction of sentences, on the choice of vocabulary and the avoidance of mere jargon, and on punctuation. His chapters are effectively illustrated with quotations from published technical papers and reports.”Notes: Jacket designed by Alan Spain. Size: A Format (7" x 4½"). In the Pelican Original series. 188 pages.
