Maimonides by Abraham Joshua Heschel (£28.00)Publisher: Farrar Straus Giroux — 1982Binding: Hardback First Edition. Condition: Very Good. Top edges of text block spotted. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: He was the preeminent medieval Jewish philosopher and one of the greatest Torah scholars of the Middle Ages. He worked as a rabbi, physician, and philosopher in Spain, Morocco and Egypt. With the contemporary Muslim sage Averroes, he promoted and developed the philosophical tradition of Aristotle. As a result, Maimonides and Averroes would gain a prominent and controversial influence in the West, where Aristotelian thought had been lost for centuries. Albert the Great and Thomas Aquinas were notable Western readers of Maimonides. (Source: Wikipedia I’m sorry to say…)Notes: Size: 8½" x 5¾".

The Wycliffe Historical Geography Of Bible Lands by Charles F. Pfeiffer & Dr. Howard F. Vos (£20.00)Publisher: Moody Press — 1970Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with heavier fading to the spine and fraying starting at the spine ends and corners. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Book shop stamp to the pastedown. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps; Plans;

From the cover: “A survey of the history and geography of all the Bible lands in one volume is long overdue. Numerous books have been written on Palestine, but few have recognized that such widely separated places as Iran, Egypt, Greece and even Italy also provided a geographical stage on which the biblical drama was enacted. In recent years Bible dictionaries, encyclopaedias and atlases have been published in increasing numbers. Some of these have provided information on all the Bible lands, but their approach has been either topical or very largely geographical.

The writers of the present volume have sought to bring together historical, geographical, biblical and archaeological material on all ten areas of the Near Eastern and Mediterranean world that might properly be called “Bible lands”. Separate chapters deal with Mesopotamia, Egypt, Palestine, Phoenicia, Syria, Biblical Iran, Cyprus, Asia Minor, Greece and Italy.

Drs. Pfeiffer and Vos spent seven years on the planning and writing of this major contribution to biblical scholarship. Both men have travelled extensively in the countries about which they have written. Their work reflects a thorough knowledge of Bible lands, the archaeology and history of the Near East, and the Bible itself on which their work rests.

The Wycliffe Historical Geography of Bible Lands is an invaluable reference and study tool. The wealth of history and geography added to significant information concerning national customs, aspirations, and religious beliefs, the whole presented in a warm, clear, forceful style, makes this volume a significant contribution to an important area of knowledge. An unusually useful and entertaining reference work for pastors, students, schools and libraries, and for laymen who seek a clearer understanding of God’s inspired Word.”

Richard Meinertzhagen: Soldier, Scientist & Spy by Mark Cocker (£16.00)Publisher: London: Secker & Warburg — 1989Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0436102994]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Previous owners' name to the first blank. Pages lightly age-tanned, more heavily so at the margins. Description: Contains: Black & white photographs;

From the cover: “Richard Meinertzhagen was one of the most extraordinary Englishmen of the twentieth century. In a long career that found him combining the roles of soldier, secret agent and ornithologist, Meinertzhagen attracted controversy at every stage and in every context. As a soldier in East Africa in the first years of the century he assassinated a tribal chief, which led eventually to his recall to England. During the First World War he rose to prominence as an officer on the staff of General Allenby in Palestine, where his brilliantly deceptive intelligence work played a crucial role in the final victory of the campaign. With T. E. Lawrence he attended the Paris Peace Conference, where he was active in support of Zionist aspirations, a cause he supported for the rest of his life.

Retiring at the age of forty-six, Meinertzhagen devoted the next forty years to natural history (combined with some hair-raising espionage) becoming the best-known and — inevitably — the most controversial ornithologist of his day. He published scores of journal articles and papers on all aspects of the subject, as well as two classic books on the birds of the Middle East: Nicoll’s Birds of Egypt and Birds of Arabia. In later years he published three volumes of his extensive personal diary, the first of which, Kenya Diary, was recently reissued to great acclaim.

In this fascinating biography, Mark Cocker presents a rounded and scrupulously fair portrait of a man who, Cocker argues, has not been given his due by history.”

While hatred of the West has been going on for a tong time, its current concentration on America is new.

The oldest of these men is 109, the youngest 104. In their own words they describe the extraordinary changes that have occurred during their lifetimes. Born in the reign of Queen Victoria, all have lived as adults through the Depression, the Second World War and the Millennium. But for these men, the Great War was the defining period of their lives. Some of them, mere boys at the outbreak, lied about their ages to join up. They saw action in the trenches, at sea and in the fledgling air services.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

The Times Compact History of the World by Edited by Geoffrey Parker (£12.50)Publisher: Grafton — 2001Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0007650809]Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. Very slightly ruffled edges of DJ.Description: 3d Edition. Illustrated with colour photographs and maps. From the introduction: “This volume attempts to cover the whole story of humankind from its origins, when our ancestors first emerged from the tropical forests of Africa, to the complex, highly articulated world in which we now live. It differs, however, from the original History of the World in three important ways. First, as its name makes clear, it presents the data in a more compact form. Although it includes 80 spreads each contains fewer, simpler maps and (proportionately) more text. Second, every map has been reviewed in order to highlight the salient trends and facts it features. Third, the topics selected for treatment include far more material from the modern period: 24 spreads concentrate on the period since 1914 and no fewer than 17 of them cover the world since 1945.”Notes: Size: 9¾" x 7¾".

A state with a unique heritage, its establishment was the culmination of a long arduous struggle for Jewish independence and sovereignty in the ancient land of Israel. Arab refusal to accept the UN resolution partitioning Palestine into a Jewish and Arab state initiated a period of conflict and war which dominated that first half century. But the years have also been coloured by extraordinary achievements in many fields of endeavour. Above all, this formative period has been characterised by the relentless quest for peace and a resolution to the Arab-Israeli discord.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

From the cover: “What can we really know about Jesus of Nazareth, the founder of Christianity? Two thousand years after his death the answer is that we know a great deal, probably more than has been known about him at any time since he walked the hills of Galilee. This book reflects the BBC’s important documentary series on Jesus. Son Of God reconstructs all we know to date about the historical Jesus, through written sources, archaeology, science, international experts, stylised re-enactments and the ingenuity of computer graphics. Reading this evidence brings this elusive figure out of the shadows and adds unique, fresh insights about his life and times.”

Avoidance of the hi-jacking ofa major city with an atomic bomb has been due, not to effective security either of weapons-grade fuel or technology but the rarity of persons combining all the requisite qualifications: knowledge and imagination to steal the fuel and make the bomb; money to do the job properly; freedom from conscience sufficient to explode the bomb if necessary — and kill a million people; ability to convince the authorities that this will happen it they do not yield; yet seemingly normal enough in personality to remain undetected as they proceed with their business.”Notes: Jacket designed by Rober Marriot Dawson.

Jesus: The Evidence by Ian Wilson (£10.50)Publisher: London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson — 1984Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0297783254]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Description: Jacket illustration: Detail of sixth-century encaustic icon of Jesus by courtesy of the Monastery of St Catherine, Sinai. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Maps to the endpapers and blanks; Genealogical Tables; Plans;

From the cover: “Jesus Christ is unquestionably the most controversial and influential figure in the history of western civilization. For nearly twenty centuries the religion which bears his name has been a dominant force in the lives of ordinary people. It has played a major part in the political manoeuvrings of their leaders — sometimes honourably, sometimes shamefully — and has been an all-pervading influence in their culture. Today the Christian Church performs a unique role in the life of every western nation: millions are baptized, married and buried under the sign of the cross every year.

Jesus: the Evidence is a compelling, dispassionate appraisal of the facts surrounding the origins of Christianity. Drawing on all the most recent archaeological finds, including non-canonical gospel material, Ian Wilson examines a number of key historical questions. What evidence is there for the accepted story of Jesus’ life and resurrection? To what extent is this story the product of social, cultural and political forces? What do we really know of his teachings? Did hypnosis play a part in his healings? Did Jesus intend that a religion should be founded in his name?

To the committed Christian, the book offers a fascinating new perspective to his or her beliefs. To the sceptic it provides a convincing explanation of why the beliefs centred on this one man have proved so powerful and so pervasive.

Illustrated without recourse to traditional Old Master images, the book reconstructs the Jesus of history using all the available circumstantial evidence — fragments of papyrus manuscripts and gospels, Roman graffiti and the earliest Christian art.

Jesus: the Evidence is the companion book to a major TV documentary series made by the prize-winning team who adapted for television Ian Wilson’s earlier worldwide bestseller The Turin Shroud.”

It examines the state-of-the-art hardware made available to those units and lists the combat experience of: the US Marine Corps in battles like Iwo Jima, Guadalcanal, Khe Sanh and Kuwait; Israeli Paras and their actions in the Arab-Israeli wars; the secretive Soviet Spetsnaz forces in their insurgency war against the Afghan Mujahedeen; the British Paras and others. The arduous training of such units as the SAS, Green Berets and SEALS ensures that only the best recruits get through; and how formations such as the American 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions are organized to deploy at a moments notice to any trouble spot in the world..”

From the cover: “What can we really know about Jesus of Nazareth, the founder of Christianity? Two thousand years after his death the answer is that we know a great deal, probably more than has been known about him at any time since he walked the hills of Galilee. This book reflects the BBC’s important documentary series on Jesus. Son Of God reconstructs all we know to date about the historical Jesus, through written sources, archaeology, science, international experts, stylised re-enactments and the ingenuity of computer graphics. Reading this evidence brings this elusive figure out of the shadows and adds unique, fresh insights about his life and times.”

The Spring Voyage: The Jerusalem Pilgrimage in 1458 by R. J. [Rosamund Joscelyne] Mitchell (£9.50)Publisher: Readers Union — 1965Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Edges of the dust wrapper somewhat ruffled, several small closed tears, further tears with slight loss and fading to the spine.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “This particular spring voyage took place a long time ago — in 1458. The travellers, two hundred men in all, who assembled in Venice in that year to take ship for Jerusalem, were impelled in general by piety and curiosity. They were pilgrims, and in their 15th century Venetian galley they endured the dangers and discomforts of a great adventure. Among the party were two Englishmen, John Tiptoft, Earl of Worcester, and William Wey, who was writing a guidebook; a Dutchman; several studious Italian gentlemen; and the condottiere Roberta da Sanseverino, who set out as an undercover diplomat. Of these pilgrims, six kept diaries from which Miss Mitchell, an accomplished Italian scholar, has recreated their experiences. To the modern traveller these will seem to possess ardours and trials which would be quite intolerable; but at the same time the simplicity of these men and their deep satisfactions are undeniably and regrettably beyond the reach of most of us today.”Notes: Size: 8¼" x 5¼".

Wartime Courage: Stories of Extraordinary Courage by Ordinary People in World War Two by Gordon Brown (£9.50)Publisher: Bloomsbury — 2008Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0747596077]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Leans slightly.Description: From the cover: “In these eleven stories of courage in the Second World War, Prime Minister Gordon Brown pays tribute to the heroism of that great generation of British men and women who took up arms against tyranny and overcame it. Some are accounts of decisive action taken in the searing heat of battle: early in the war Lieutenant Richard Stannard, RNR, showed steely calm and ingenuity during the retreat from Norway in 1940, winning a VC; while on D-Day, Company Sergeant Major Hollis of the Green Howards won his by storming a pillbox alone, paving the way for a crucial advance to higher ground. Other stories tell of great danger faced again and again: Graham Hayes and Geoffrey Appleyard of the Small Scale Raiding Force (forerunner of the SBS) carried out daring and innovative actions over many months off Africa and along the Normandy coast; while John Bridge, a physics teacher turned mine- and bomb-disposal officer, repeatedly practised his nerve-racking skills for six years, always aware that there were no second chances if things went wrong. Behind enemy lines the sangfroid and sheer endurance of clandestine operatives like Major Hugh Seagrim in occupied Burma and Violette Szabo in occupied France showed a daunting, almost mysterious form of courage; and on the home front two railwaymen risked their lives to save a small country town from devastation when their ammunition train caught fire.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5½".
