The Fight Against Cancer by Charles Oberling (£23.00)Publisher: André Deutsch [Andre Deutsch] — 1961Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges. Leans. Price Clipped. Edges of the text block lightly spotted.Description: From the cover: “Charles Oberling, one of Europe’s foremost cancer specialists, was the author of a number of technical books and was widely recognized as a leading authority on the causes and treatment of the disease. His researches led him to favour the virus theory as to the cause of cancer, but in this book, although he states the case for this belief, he does not confine himself to its exposition. He also gives a brief but scrupulous survey of the history of research into the nature and causes of the disease, from the work of Bernard Peyrilhe in the eighteenth century until the present time. Oberling, who died in 1960, believed ardently that ignorance of the subject led to much unnecessary apprehension, and that the public ought to be as fully informed as possible about the work being carried out, the theories held, and the discoveries made by scientists in their battle against cancer. It was with this in mind that he wrote the present book in a style comprehensible to the general reader.”Notes: Jacket designed by H. H. Hagedoorn. Foreword or introduction by Sir Cecil Wakeley.

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".

Bird Life: An Introduction to the World of Birds by Christopher Perrins (£14.00)Publisher: Elsevier-Phaidon — 1976Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition.

From the flap: “In this volume, birds are treated, not as museum specimens or subjects simply to be identified and catalogued, but as living animals. The author discusses their evolution, anatomy, feeding, habitats, social behaviour, breeding and migration. The book therefore covers all aspects of avian biology. But what makes it so absolutely outstanding is its illustrations. Points made in the text are demonstrated by superb paintings by the Dutch artist and naturalist Ad Cameron, one of the world’s leading bird artists. The pictures depict birds in their natural postures and serve as a record, not only of the birds themselves, but of the modes of behaviour. The birds depicted come both from common European and American species and from the more exotic forms found in Africa, Australia, South America and Asia.”Notes: Size: 12¼" x 9¼".

The Complete Performance Horse: Feeding, Fitness, Lameness, Preventive Medicine by Colin Vogel (£10.50)Publisher: Newton Abbot: David & Charles — 1996Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0715303457]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges.Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Graphs; Colour Photographs; Diagrams; From the cover: “This unique book brings together the four most important aspects of the veterinary care of the competition horse. Respected equine vet and author Colin Vogel examines each one in detail, showing how they are equally important in creating and maintaining optimum performance for every type of horse. He gives the facts on correct feeding, and exposes some of the misguided feeding practices still used by horse owners today. In helping owners choose the best training methods for their particular animal with the aim of achieving maximum fitness, he shows the wisdom of not pushing for too much too soon; and he provides for the first time a comprehensive guide to the causes and treatment of lameness, aimed specifically at owners of performance horses. He also demonstrates how all kinds of problems can be avoided by practising preventive medicine — vaccinations, worming programmes and correct stable management systems. The author’s gift for explaining complex scientific principles in a way that any horse owner can understand easily means that this book will become the competitor’s first point of reference on his or her route to achieving that elusive first prize.”Notes: Illustrated by Kit Houghton & Bob Lanrish.

The information contained in the book is presented as simply as possible with explanations of technical terminology given where necessary. A large number of cross references are given as a further aid to study.
