From the cover: “Jory Graham discovers a Chicago that no outsider and few Chicagoans know — the good, bad, hilarious, outrageous, sometimes unholy, often wildly surprising city.

Most people know only the lakefront, the Loop, two museums, Old Town, the Near North Side. But the author introduces you to dozens of museums; 76 neighborhoods; hundreds of restaurants and shops you’ve never heard of; a grand calendar of pageants, festas, fairs, shows.

Woven through the book is the history of Chicago and its people — its founder, du Sable; its industrialists; its irrepressible eccentrics; its beloved gangsters; its intelligentsia; its brilliant architects.”

Disraeli: A Brief Life by Paul Smith (£13.00)Publisher: Cambridge University Press — 1999Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0521669901]Condition: Very Good. Upper wrapper slighty curled. A digital reprint. Description: First in this Canto edition. [First: 1996] Cover illustration: Disraeli by Carlo Pellegrini. Vanity Fair 30 January 1860.

From the cover: “Benjamin Disraeli was born in London in 1804, the grandson of an immigrant Italian Jew. In this fresh account of his life, Paul Smith looks at Disraeli’s unique character as a fusion of Jewishness and Anglicanism, outsider and insider, nationalist and European, Romantic and Tory; and shows how this formed his appeal as an original and a card, the most piquant joker in the pack and his indomitable nerve, as a faintly raffish outsider, in scaling the highest peaks of public life.”

Serious by John McEnroe; James Kaplan; (£10.50)Publisher: Little, Brown — 2002Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0316859869]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped. Edges of the text block lightly tanned and a slight wave to the same.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The statistics speak for themselves. Seventy-seven singles titles. Seventy-seven doubles titles. Seven times a Grand Slam champion. Five times a Davis Cup winner. World number one for four consecutive years. A performance in the 1984 Wimbledon final — the 6-1, 6-1, 6-2 destruction of Jimmy Connors — that is widely seen as the most flawless of the modern era. John McEnroe made waves from his very first Wimbledon in 1977. An eighteen-year-old qualifier from Queens, New York, he stunned the tennis world by reaching the semi-finals, and shocked it with his on-court behaviour. When McEnroe kicked his tennis racket in the quarter-finals, he found himself booed for the first time — and loved it. What followed was a double act of technique and temperament that set the sport alight: SuperMac, the sublime, unorthodox genius, whose 1980 Wimbledon duel with Bjorn Borg — including THAT tie-break — was as breathtaking as it was unforgettable; Superbrat, the foul-mouthed fireball, furiously yelling at officials, fans, players and himself alike. SERIOUS chronicles the astonishing story of the tennis star whose stardom transcended tennis: the outsider status that made McEnroe friends with Keith Richards and Jack Nicholson; his stormy marriage to Tatum O’Neal; his forays into the worlds of art and rock music; and his arrival as one of the most astute sports commentators around.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Goldfinger: How Entrepreneurs Get Rich by Starting Small by Robert Heller (£9.50)Publisher: HarperCollinsBusiness — 1998Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0002558467]Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges with a small nick at the head of the spine. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Pages very gently age-tanned.Description: From the cover: “The entrepreneur is the hero of capitalism, the object of envy and admiration, the mainspring for the private sector, the stuff of commercial legend, the source of new companies, new products, new industries. Yet, unlike business management, entrepreneurship remains shrouded in mystery — possibly because no one believes it can be taught. In Goldfinger, Robert Heller dispels the myths surrounding entrepreneurship and explores this unique area of business practice. At every stage — from initial thought processes, through planning to implementation and beyond — the entrepreneur can benefit from the examples of others, and from clear precepts and practices. There are entrepreneurs who have never needed a lesson, who have acted from instinct rather than intellect, but tracking their actions invariably reveals a pattern, based on logic and observation, controlled by methods which can be easily learned and followed.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Voice of Britain: The Inside Story of the Daily Express by Robert Allen; John Frost; (£9.50)Publisher: Patrick Stephens — 1983Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 085059569X]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. Edges of the text block lightly tanned.Description: Illustrated / decorative end papers. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Never before has an outsider penetrated the unknown territory of the Daily Express and written about what he found there. This is a unique view of one of our most popular daily newspapers filled with fascinating insights into those personalities who have made the paper what it is today. There are interviews with Jean Rook, Sir Osbert Lancaster, Jak, Michael Cummings, Roy Ullyett and even an exclusive hard-to-get interview with the legendary Giles. The story of the newspaper is told in detail. And what a story! For many years the Express was dominated by the powerful personality of Lord Beaverbrook, one of the most controversial figures of a profession which is rich in ‘characters’. Beaverbrook used his great wealth and his powerful newspapers to advocate his own imperialist policies. But he was shrewd enough to realise that the public would only read his opinions if they were presented in an attractive paper and so he hired the best talent around in order to push the Daily Express to the very top of the readership ratings. For very many years the Express has been synonymous with lively, interesting reading and the public entertained by many great names as diverse as Chapman Pincher, Beachcomber, Strube, Percy Hoskins, Sefton Delmer, Victor Blackman — and Rupert! Today the paper is still never far from the limelight. In the late 1970s it became a tabloid to modernise its image. For Express readers and all others interested in Press history this is a book not to be missed.”Notes: Foreword or introduction by Lord Matthews. Size: 9¾" x 6¾".
