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.”

A History of Cambridgeshire by Bruce Galloway (£10.50)Publisher: Phillimore — 1983Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0850334500]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped.Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Plates; Black & White Drawings; Maps; Plans;

From the cover: “Cambridgeshire still shows the marks of people who have known and used it from earliest times. This is the story of the land and of its peoples. Prehistoric men built barrows and magnificent hill-forts like Wandlebury Ring; their remains litter the chalk belt about the Icknield Way. The Romans came and went, leaving roads, canals and treasure to mark their passing. Angles built gigantic defensive earthworks against the Saxons and founded rich monasteries like Ely for the good of their souls. Vikings raided and Normans conquered, facing their final challenge in the Cambridgeshire fens. This book is the first full history of Cambridgeshire to be published in more than 70 years. Covering the whole span of county history, from the arrival of the first men to the 20th century, it examines Town, Gown and County in all their aspects. Based on original research and intimate knowledge, its deliberately simple presentation is underlain by authority and scholarship. The concise and vivid text is given great visual impact by a wealth of carefully-selected illustrations and specially-drawn maps.”

Architecture by David Jacobs (£10.50)Publisher: Newsweek Books — 1974Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0882251074]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper. Pages very gently age-tanned.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “THE STORY OF BUILDING, writes the author of this penetrating study, starts the way stories of so many of mankind’s enterprises start — “speculatively, and in the almost immeasurably distant past”. But it would be an exasperating experience to trace the evolution of mud huts into pyramids, Greek temples, and Gothic cathedrals. Instead, he invites the reader to separate buildings for shelter from buildings as artistic statements. In an instant, we see architecture as a badge of civilization, “the requisite sign, the certain credential without which a society cannot be called civilized”. Architecture has some 170 illustrations, more than a third in full colour. Stunning modern photographs are juxtaposed with plans, cross sections, scale models, and historic views to form a vivid counterpoint to the authoritative text. A special, twenty-four page section, “Architects on Architecture”, contains excerpts from the writings of Louis H. Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier and Eero Saarinen, among others. A five-page chronology relates events in the history of architecture to other cultural and political developments, while a selected bibliography and a full index make this a valuable reference work.”Notes: Size: 10½" x 7½".
