The White Guard by Mikhail Bulgakov (£64.00)Publisher: London: Collins & Harvill Press — 1971Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0002619059]Condition: Good+ — in Good Dust Wrapper. Edges of the dust wrapper somewhat frayed, without loss although untidy and now tape-reinforced on the verso, with sunning to the spine. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Previous owners' gift inscription to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise bar for small tear at the foot of the last two leaves. Description: From the cover: “The time — 1918. The place — Kiev, capital of the Ukraine, torn by revolution and civil war. The people — the Turbin family of two brothers and a sister, whose home is a calm pool of affection, warmth and humanity in a maelstrom of cold, snow, violence and sudden death. Alexei Turbin, eldest brother and head of the family, is a doctor returned from the war; his sister Elena is married to an unpleasant Baltic German who scuttles away like a rat as soon as danger threatens. The youngest is Nikolka, at seventeen just out of officer-cadet school and a volunteer in one of the scratch units manned by officers which formed the White Guard in the Ukraine. A cuckoo in their nest is their hopeless cousin from Zhitomir, Lariosik, a charming bungler who always says the wrong thing, breaks everything he touches, yet is welcomed into the Turbins’ charmed circle with love and kindness.

At the beginning, the Germans are still occupying Kiev, propping up the feeble regime of the Hetman Skoropadsky. Their cause lost in advance by the Hetman’s ignoble defection, Alexei and Nikolka Turbin and their White Guard officer friends make a brave but futile attempt to resist the capture of Kiev by the adventurer Petlyura and his army of long-moustached, baggy-trousered, trigger-happy Ukrainian roughnecks.

Savage while it lasts, Petlyura’s occupation of Kiev is at least short and as his motley troops slink away, Bulgakov coins an image of power which is the perfect antithesis to the cosy, womb-like interior of the Turbin’s home: on the track outside Kiev, hissing gently, waiting to grind inexorably into the city, stands the huge steel-clad articulated juggernaut of a Bolshevik armoured train.”

The Explorers Guild Volume One: A Passage to Shambhala by Jon Baird, with Kevin Costner & Stephen Meyer (£28.00)Publisher: New York: Atria Books — 2015Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 9781471153723]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Plates; Black & White Drawings; Maps to the endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “Developed by Academy Award winner Kevin Costner, this is a magnificently produced, illustrative adventure story about a clandestine society of rogue voyagers on a mission to discover the mysteries that lie beyond the boundaries of the known world. Behind the staid public rooms of an old world gentlemen’s club operates a more mysterious organization: The Explorers’ Guild, a clandestine group of adventurers who bravely journey to those places in which light gives way to shadow and reason is usurped by myth. The secrets they seek are hidden in mountain ranges and lost in deserts, buried in the ocean floor and lodged deep in polar ice.

The aim of The Explorers’ Guild: to discover the mysteries that lie beyond the boundaries of the known world. Set against the backdrop of World War I, with Western Civilization on the edge of calamity, the first instalment in The Explorers’ Guild series, A Passage to Shambhala, concerns the Guild’s quest to find the golden city of Buddhist myth. The search will take them from the Polar North to the Mongolian deserts, through the underground canals of Asia to deep inside the Himalayas, before the fabled city finally divulges its secrets and the globe-spanning journey plays out to its startling conclusion. The Explorers’ Guild is a rare publishing opportunity, powered by the creative passion of one of the world’s true storytelling masters, Kevin Costner.”

The Madonna of the Astrolabe by J. I. M. [John Innes Mackintosh] Stewart (£27.00)Publisher: London: Victor Gollancz — 1977Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0575022507]Condition: Very Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper heavily sunned at the spine. Leans slightly. Pages very gently age-tanned. Description: Number 4 in the series.

From the cover: “This fourth book in J. I. M. Stewart’s splendid quintet of Oxford novels introduces new themes, new characters, a new impetus. There’s the alarming discovery that the fabric of the college’s great tower is in a dangerous condition; and the problem of how to raise the money for its restoration involves the Provost and some of his colleagues in very devious intrigues. And there’s the wonderful discovery, in a college attic, of a hitherto unrecorded — and, of course, priceless — Piero della Francesca; and its disappearance in the middle of a riotous performance of Marlowe’s Tamburlaine.

On a more personal level, there’s also the totally unexpected arrival of Duncan Pattullo’s ex-wife, a lady of roving sexual proclivities and a great embarrassment to many. And there’s the familiar and engaging chorus of ancient dons; though old Timbermill’s death, in a very moving episode, depletes their number.

Another fine novel in a most memorable series.”

Silence on Monte Sole by Jack Olsen (£17.00)Publisher: London: Arthur Baker — 1969Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0213177943]Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with a nick to the foot of the spine and bottom corner of the upper panel. Top edge of the text block tanned. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Appendix; Maps to the endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “Relentlessly, dispassionately and brilliantly told, this monumental account of an outrage buried in the atrocities of World War II may become one of the great polemics against war. During World War II, Monte Sole had the misfortune to lie on the main route of withdrawal of the retreating German armies — a route vitally important to Field Marshal Kesselring and to the partisans of the Stella Rossa, headquartered in the hills of Monte Sole.

Under the fierce command of ‘Il Lupo’ (The Wolf), the partisans harassed the Germans by attacking convoys, derailing trains, and once capturing top-secret plans for the German defences on the Gothic line. As the Allied advance stormed up Italy to the very shadow of Monte Sole, Axis frenzy reached its peak. With full authorization of Kesselring and with an infusion of dread SS reinforcements, the Germans deliberately set out to neutralize Monte Sole.

This massacre constitutes the core of Jack Olsen’s book. He interviewed the men and women who were there and miraculously survived and those who remember what took place during the unspeakable butchery of the next three days. Eighteen hundred men, women and children, most of them having had nothing to do with the partisans, were annihilated on Monte Sole. Those who did not die were later blown up by mines sown by the Germans who were determined that Kesselring’s orders be carried out: that Monte Sole be obliterated from the face of the earth.”

The Orenda by Joseph Boyden (£17.00)Publisher: London: Oneworld — 2013Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 9781780744353]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: From the cover: “1640s, THE NEW WORLD.

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.”

Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Very small tipex mark to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise. Description: Contains: Maps to the endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “In comfortable stables at Lexington, Virginia, a sturdy, nine-year-old grey chats to his friend Tom the Nipper, one of the domestic cats. Soon we learn that he is no ordinary horse, but Traveller, General Robert E. Lee’s mount in the American Civil War. The war now over, Traveller has become a loved and honoured member of Lee’s family at Washington College, where the General (on sufferance of the victorious Federal North) is President. Lee still rides his horse every afternoon. The complete understanding between them, forged in the war years, has grown if anything deeper during these latter days of peace.

Through Traveller’s memories, told to Tom, we learn how, on Sewell Mountain in 1861, he first met Lee, then a subordinate general, and how the two met again on the coast of Carolina, where Lee bought Traveller (and named him). At the beginning of June 1862, President Davis appoints Lee to command the army desperately defending Richmond against “the Blue men” — the Federals. In the glorious but appallingly bloody campaign which follows, known as the Seven Days, Traveller first experiences action with his master. Then the Army of Northern Virginia marches northward to Manassas, where they again win victory. Traveller carries Lee to Antietam, to Fredericksburg in the snow, to Chancellorsville in the forest, and so to Gettysburg and to the dreadful engagements in The Wilderness. Finally we learn of the siege of Richmond and Petersburg, and hear Traveller’s account of what happened at Appomattox.”
