Wisdom Of The Wild: How We Treat Our Planet by Anon. (£26.50)Publisher: Word Wide Fund for Nature — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Presentation plate to the first blank.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “There is no turning back. There never has been in history. Two hundred million American citizens are not going to leave the USA just to give back to the Indians the land that was stolen from them. The Inuit in Greenland are not about to climb into their kayaks to paddle back up the river of history. The wisdom with which “wild” peoples have animated their world cannot be fetched back at will. Nevertheless, there is a great deal to learn. This, for example: how, on the threshold of the third millennium, can we live once again in a finite world without consuming it? Pedagogues tell us that children need elements of the wild and disorder in order to become mentally sound adults. The child in its den is said to be subconsciously remembering the feeling of safety which our ancestors experienced in caves in the childhood of mankind. In Sweden, they let children fly back to the beginnings of humanity on the wings of their imagination, as it were. The wild as a tonic.

Henry David Thoreau’s suggestion that every major city should have some wildness in its vicinity (because otherwise its inhabitants would revert to the wild) is almost one hundred and fifty years old — and highly topical in view of the frustration which people feel in our concrete bunkers.

An end must be put to the dominance of the right angle. Protection programmes for spacious areas of wilderness have one purpose, among others, namely to preserve the charm of untouched nature. Real-life magic! Magic, or rather cheap tricks — that is what our oh-so-en-lightened world thought of the healing knowledge of the jungle Indians for such a long time. Until, at the sight of the burning rain forests, they realised that the best pharmacy in the world was going up in flames.

The awareness of its utility should not be the rescuers’ sole motive, however. If we only take up arms in defence of the earth where our immediate living conditions are threatened, we shall soon be sitting amidst the ruins of a barren planet. It is (unfortunately, some would say) not the case that when the trees die, man also dies immediately. There are no trees in the Mongolian steppes, but they are still not dead. The fact is, as an Indian chief once said: “After the deaths of plants and animals, you will die of the great loneliness in your hearts.” An appeal has been filed against this death sentence. This book contains a few passages from the defence counsel’s speech.”

Scientific Principles of Feeding Farm Live Stock: Proceedings of A Conference Held At Brighton, 11-13 November 1958 by Anon. (£20.50)Publisher: Farmer & Stock-Breeder Publications — 1959Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with slight fraying at the spine ends and corners, fading to the spine. Price Clipped. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Spotting to the blanks and pastedowns. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “This book provides the most up-to-date information that is available about the principles of feeding farm live stock. It will be of value as a standard reference book not only to research workers but to advisers and students.

After the Second World War the need for increased production of animal products, the development of agricultural chemistry and the growth of the feeding stuffs industry led to greater use of balanced rations for live stock. The proper balancing of these rations calls for a sound basis on which to’ evaluate and state the nutritional requirements of live stock, but most of the existing standards are based on research carried out half a century ago.

The principles of feeding farm live stock have lately been under review, and newer ideas have been put forward by research workers in different countries. Farmer & Stock-Breeder recently got the advisers, national and commercial, to talk over these matters with research workers and see whether any restatement of principles might be helpful to all concerned. The conference called for this purpose produced not only the many valuable papers in this book but the considerable amount of constructive discussion and suggestions recorded here.”

Planned Beef Production by Stephen Williams; C. David Edgar; (£18.00)Publisher: Crosby Lockwood & Son — 1966Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Ex-library with few marks. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges with a rough nearly closed tear to the leading edge of the lower panel. Heavily faded at the spine of the dust wrapper. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “THE production of beef cattle is complex and is becoming increasingly so. Technical changes have been applied to the once simple matter of having herds of breeding cattle in some places and yards of fattening bullocks in others. Sometimes they were on the same farm, but often there was a considerable distance between them and this was bridged by the cattle dealer and the store market. New concepts of breeding by artificial insemination led to the replacement of some dual-purpose cattle by some others. The reds and the roans became black and white, or just black; and the buffs are now making an appearance. Physical and chemical methods of dehorning have jostled with genetic advances in polling. Competition between the churn stand and the calf pen in a period of falling milk prices led to early weaning in its various guises and to the greater use of milk substitutes and the earlier feeding of concentrates. Multiple suckling, carefully supervised by expensive labour, has led to mass suckling with labour charges spread over more cattle. More recently there have been interesting developments with barley fed and battery beef with forage flowing untouched from silo to stock, a trickle of concentrates being fed on the way. The time has come for an appraisal of the multitude of methods in beef production and the many differing ideas regarding suitable breeds down to the introduction of the Charolais.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5½".

Natural Remedies for Allergies by Paul Morgan (£10.50)Publisher: Parragon — 1998Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0752525379]Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. DJ slightly ruffled at the edges.Description: From the cover: “Allergies have become something of an obsession in the 1990s: press reports talk of ‘an allergy to life’; and scientists tell that the extraordinary increase in allergy cases over the last century can be put down to environmental pollution as a result of the increasing industrialization of society. This book shows allergy sufferers that there are other ways to reduce the risk of provoking an allergic response and of treating one if it occurs. First, it cuts through the jargon, using clear no-nonsense language to explain what allergies are and what causes them, before discussing the pros and cons of conventional medical treatment. Then it discusses the various types of allergy, from food allergies to allergic skin conditions, with cross-references to the various types of natural treatment that follow. Next the book shows how natural remedies — from herbal medicines, elimination diets and homeopathy to stress-management techniques — can help by both alleviating the symptoms of an allergic response and prevent one from occurring.”Notes: Size: 9¾" x 7".

The Healing Power of Food by Edited by Laura Price (£10.50)Publisher: Reader's Digest — 1997Binding: Hardback First Edition. [ISBN: 0276422627]Condition: Very Good. Leans slightly. Boards slightly sunned at the margins. Text bright and tight. A nice copy.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs and diagrams. From the cover: “ore and more people today are choosing to take greater responsibility for their own health rather .than relying on the doctor to step in with a cure when something goes wrong. We now recognise that we can influence our health by making an improvement in lifestyle — a better diet, more exercise and reduced stress. People are also becoming increasingly aware that there are other healing methods — some new, others very ancient — that can help to prevent illness or be used as a complement to orthodox medicine. The series Health and Healing the Natural Way will help you to make your own health choices by giving you clear, comprehensive, straightforward and encouraging information and advice about methods of improving your health. The series explains the many different natural therapies now available — aromatherapy, herbalism, acupressure and many others — and the circumstances in which they may be of benefit when used in conjunction with conventional medicine.

The approach of the healing power of food is to emphasise the direct medicinal effects that can be achieved through food. It explains the general principles of healthy eating, how diet relates to disease and exactly how the active components of food work. The main thrust of the book, however, is to give clear, practical guidelines on what and how to eat to relieve a wide variety of health problems. the healing power of food reflects the growing trend to bring alternative therapies and mainstream medicine together. The book is not about challenging orthodox medical practice, rather the emphasis is on balance. To this end the benefits of individual foods are presented within the context of a healthy, complete and balanced diet.”

Dieting Makes You Fat: A Guide to Energy, Fitness and Health by Geoffrey Cannon; Hetty Einzig; (£9.50)Publisher: Century — 1983Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 071260118X]Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges. Leans. Top edge of the text block tanned. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: From the cover: “Most of us have been taught to believe that self-denial is the key to health, fitness and a firm figure; and that the bathroom scales are the judge of how successfully we manage it. The authors show that this is not simply wrong, but harmful.

They explain that the key is not how much you eat, but how quickly your body converts food to energy — the metabolic rate. The best way to lose excess fat is to speed up the metabolism by taking exercise; dieting slows metabolism and positively encourages the body to retain its excess flab. Hence the big eaters who stay thin and the little eaters who stay fat — as well as the many sufferers whose diets have led to anorexia, bingeing or hatred of their own bodies.

The first part of this book reveals the humbug and false promises of the diet industry. It goes on to make positive suggestions for a lifestyle based on sound science and commonsense, with particular reference to the nutritive value of different foods and the effects of different forms of exercise on the bodies of men and women. Guidelines that every able-bodied person can follow are included.

Dieting Makes You Fat is a catchy title behind which lies an important message properly supported by biomedical research and leading to some far-reaching conclusions about the way we live and eat. It is a revolutionary book which could and should change our lives.”

Now there is a new dimension to nursing, profoundly influencing not only the patient’s fight with illness but his or her lifetime health — nutrition.

Whatever the medication or treatment, optimum nutrition will enhance it, strengthening the immune system to resist disease and fortifying the body against the stress of surgery or injury, and sustaining the patient through the debilitating experience of illness. An outstanding nutritional educator and an experienced nurse and teacher present in this book the essentials of nutrition and how it applies to nursing patients — including a clear-sighted examination of the “political” and professional considerations necessary in applying this knowledge in settings where it is new.

Deeply informed and informative, Nutrition in Nursing is a landmark book and a means of enlarging the scope of the most intimately involved of the health professions.”

Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Toning to the blanks. Bookplate to the front pastedown. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the introduction: “IN the eighteenth century animate and inanimate objects were also described as organic (possessing organs) and inorganic. When chemistry had advanced to a stage in which analyses of substances more complex than simple salts and minerals were made, it was found that there were many compounds that occurred in both animate and inanimate objects. In addition, there were compounds that appeared to be restricted in occurrence to living organisms. These compounds had in common the property of containing carbon. Since they were restricted to organic nature their study became known as organic chemistry, a term later broadened to include the study of all carbon compounds, including those synthesised in the laboratory. For some time it was held that organic compounds were not subject to the same laws as those governing the behaviour of inorganic compounds (« Dans la nature vivante, les elementes paraissent obeir a des lois tout autres que dans la nature inorganique », Berzelius, 1849)1. Though there exists a flourishing legend that this supposition was demolished by Wohler’s synthesis of urea in 18282, it was not until the publication of Berthelot’s « Chimie organique fondee sur la Synthese » in 1860 that it was generally rejected. In spite of the rejection of the idea that chemical substances found in the living organism are not subject to the laws applying to inorganic materials, it has lingered long in the field of protein chemistry.

Most living organisms are mainly inorganic in composition. Though quantitatively important, the inorganic components are overshadowed both in complexity and variety by the organic components. Quantitatively, the most important groups of organic compounds are the proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. A recent analysis of a human body showed that inorganic constituents amounted to about 73 % of its weight (of which about 68 % was water), while about 13% was protein, about 12% fat, and about 1% carbohydrate.”

Ecology into Economics Won't Go: Or Life Is Not a Concept by Stuart Mcburney (£7.50)Publisher: Green Books — 1990Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 1870098285]Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Upper wrap a little curled. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Pages lightly age-tanned.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “The notion that we can have sustainable economic growth is a delusion. Furthermore, the current attempts to solve our environmental problems through market-based incentives are as ineffective as a re-arrangement of the deckchairs on the Titanic. The culprit is the economic system itself, which acts against life and nature. The continuing transfer of resources from poor to rich countries, the burning of the rainforests, increasing third world poverty, spreading desertification, and the entirety of our environmental crisis can all be traced back directly to the nature of the economic system. We have a stark choice to make: ecology, or economics. We cannot have both. Read this book and find out why.”Notes: Size: C Format (8½" x 5¼"). 196 pages.

Food Fit for Humans by Frank Avray Wilson (£7.50)Publisher: London: The C. W. Daniel Company — 1975Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0852071329]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded. Description: From the cover: “Here is not only a passionate warning of the terrible consequence of common errors now threatening human survival, but also an original and invigorating basis for an extended humanitarian vegetarian ideology.

The author, a trained biologist and painter who gained an international reputation in the 1950s and 1960s, believes that man is essentially a fruit eater, and that food can be the essential humanising factor.

This book is the outcome of the complementary interests of painting and biology and presents the case for a world revolution of eating habits.

By the author of Food for the Golden Age.”

Food Science, Nutrition and Health by Brian A. Fox; Allen G. Cameron; (£7.50)Publisher: Edward Arnold — 1993Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0340496754]Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Upper wrapper and first few pages creased at the top corner. Leans slightly. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank.Description: 5th Edition. From the cover: “The study of food and nutrition has become increasingly sophisticated with the development of the food industry over recent years. There is now growing interest and knowledge of the relationship between diet and health and disease. This new edition of a popular text has been rewritten and updated to reflect the changing attitudes towards healthy eating, placing considerable emphasis on what constitutes healthy eating rather than just analysing food to discover what nutrients it contains. The authors still provide a comprehensive account of nutrients and the foods which contain them, covering elementary chemistry, biochemistry and physiology relevant to the practical applications of Food Science. Nutritional guidelines for healthy eating, as recommended by bodies such as the National Advisory Committee on Nutritional Education (NACNE, 1983) are fully explained. The use of food additives (including E numbers), methods of cooking, food spoilage, food poisoning and food preservation are covered, along with new chapters on fruit and vegetables, and drink, including alcoholic drink. The emphasis on nutrition and health makes this text interesting and valuable reading for all concerned with the production, cooking and preservation of food, and the need for a healthier diet.”Notes: Size: C Format (8½" x 5¼"). 408 pages.
