The Great Warbow: From Hastings to the Mary Rose by Matthew Strickland & Robert Hardy (£76.00)Publisher: Stroud: Alan Sutton Publishing — 2005Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0750931671]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and the top corners of the boards with commensurate wear to the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Contains: Black & white photographs; Facsimiles; Graphs; Colour photographs; Maps; Appendix; Plans;

From the cover: “In 1979, divers excavating the wreck of the Tudor warship the Mary Rose discovered numerous yew longbows in remarkable condition, some still in their packing chests. These finds have revolutionised our knowledge of the power and performance of the weapon that helped to win the great battles of Crecy, Poitiers and Agincourt. Robert Hardy, one of the experts closely involved in the conservation of the Mary Rose bows, joins medieval historian Matthew Strickland to produce a major new study of the medieval longbow at war.

Though the longbow is most famous for its role in the Hundred Years War, the authors take us on a fascinating journey through its long history in warfare from the Anglo-Saxon and Viking period right up to the Wars of the Roses and the longbow’s gradual decline in Tudor England. We see its deployment in diverse theatres of war, in Wales and Ireland, on the crusades in Syria and Palestine, and in guerrilla warfare deep in the forests of England. The longbow’s increasing importance is traced through the bitter Anglo-Scottish wars of Edward I and Edward II, including the great battle of Bannockburn, to its apogee in the fields of France under Edward III and Henry V. Tactical developments and the weapon’s performance against armour are closely examined, while a comparative study of the crossbow and composite bow provides an essential context for the longbow’s significance.

Vivid, exciting and richly illustrated, The Great Warbow provides a fresh and authoritative account of one of the deadliest and most feared weapons of the Middle Ages. It is essential reading for anyone interested in medieval warfare or the history of archery.”

Teamwork in Industry by F. J. Burns Morton (£63.00)Publisher: Chapman & Hall — 1948Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with loss at the head of the upper panel and closed tears to the lower. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Tanning and spotting to the blanks and endpapers. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: From the cover: “The author’s previous book, The New Foremanship, endeavoured to propound and analyse the problem of supervision in the light of present circumstances and likely trends. It was suggested that new methods of supervision were "necessary to bring social relationships, which in industry had remained static, into line with the great developments which had taken place in technical organisation; and further, what was needed in foremanship was also necessary in other managerial practices.

This present book, which is also addressed to all in authority and to those thinking employees who believe in the possibilities, of their jobs, sets out to show the direction of the second step. It examines the nature of better working relationships, and shows that harmonious, consciously directed working together leads to increased efficiency. Thus the name Teamwork in Industry.

The twelve chapters discuss such vital topics as the human factor and the influencing of human behaviour, co-operation and industrial relations, job satisfaction, selection and training of staff, incentives, leadership, supervision, discipline, absenteeism, working conditions and social organisation. The book concludes with a useful bibliography and index.”

Before the Ironclad: Ship Design, Propulsion and Armament in the Royal Navy, 1815-60 by Edited by David K. [Keith] Brown (£50.00)Publisher: London: Conway Maritime Press — 1990Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0851775322]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper sunned at the spine. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Appendices [14]; Black & White Photographs; Graphs; Diagrams; Maps; Tables; Plans;

From the cover: “In the massive revolution that affected warship design between Waterloo and Warrior, the Royal Navy is often depicted as fiercely resisting every change until it was almost too late, but this new history of the transition from sail to steam challenges these old assumptions.

Beginning with the structural improvements of Robert Seppings, the book traces the gradual introduction of more scientific methods and the advent of steam and the paddle fighting ship, iron hulls and screw propulsion. It analyses the performance of the fleet in the Crimean War, and concludes with the design of Warrior, the first iron-built, sea-going capital ship in the world.

In passing, the author reveals an organisation that was well aware of new technology, carefully evaluating its potential use, and occasionally (as with its enthusiastic espousal of iron hulls) moving too quickly for its own good. Based on much new research, and a lifetime’s understanding of the technical problems, Before the Ironclad is a well-balanced and coherent account of general developments, as well as an in-depth study of the ships themselves.”

Yet no publication has captured that excitement by bringing together all the latest concept and production cars that have been launched worldwide. No publication, that is, until now…

Each vehicle is brought vividly to life in a series of stunning photographs and original renderings, showing exterior and interior design features, the car’s stylistic development and its engine layout — over 800 illustrations in all. Available data for every car is also provided, giving you all the crucial dimensions and performance figures.

Written with all the passion and detailed knowledge that only an industry insider could bring to the subject, the book begins with a brief introduction that provides an overview of all the models featured, pointing to the key trends in the styling of cars today. Profiles of three leading designers of the past year are also featured, as is detailed information on the forthcoming motor shows where you can see the very latest car designs for yourself. And just in case you’re puzzled by ‘drive-by-wire technology’, or have forgotten the meaning of ‘MPV’, we’ve included a clear and comprehensive glossary of technical terms.

The Car Design Yearbook is the most comprehensive annual reference to the latest trends in car design worldwide ever published. Whatever your interest in cars — whether as an industry insider, a designer, a student or a car enthusiast — you cannot afford to be without this definitive guide, which offers an enticing glimpse of the sort of car you might be driving tomorrow.”

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.”

Richard Overy’s compelling and analytical text takes the world from the pomp of Europe’s colonial heyday and the cataclysm of the First World War through the Great Depression, the Second World War and the Cold War to the uncertain stumblings of the New World Order. Special attention is paid to the themes and challenges which have faced us throughout the century — the environment, health, science, leisure and technology. With over 200 full-colour maps and more than 300 photographs, the book is a visual feast and a work of substantial scholarship.”Notes: Size: 4to Royal (32 x 25cm Approx.). 239 pages.

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".

Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges, slightly tanned. A nice copy of a not-so-common title.Description: From the cover: “Are management consultants the answer to a businessman’s prayer? Or are they unprincipled rogues who, for an exorbitant fee, tell a company nothing it does not already know and saddle it with a lot of elaborate, unnecessary and expensive procedures?

To answer these extreme questions and many more between, Laura Tatham has obtained first-hand evidence from dozens of consultants and from as many clients, both satisfied and dissatisfied. This book is the result of her inquiries.

An impartial survey, The Efficiency Experts examines in detail what management consultants are, how they work and what they set out to accomplish. It suggests ways in which the businessman can make best use of consultants, and how he can assess whether or not a firm is likely to do a good job. A number of case histories describe both successful and unsuccessful consulting assignments.”

Marching on Together: My Life at Leeds United by Eddie Gray with Jason Tomas (£17.00)Publisher: London: Hodder & Stoughton — 2001Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition.

Description: Signed by the author on the title page — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. Contains: Black & white photographs; Colour photographs;

From the cover: “A fascinating account of an extraordinary career — Eddie Gray and his life at Leeds.

Eddie Gray is synonymous with Leeds United. One of the most skilful and exciting players in the club’s history, his links with the club have been further strengthened by his roles as |manager, youth team coach, reserve team coach and now assistant manager.

Here he talks candidly about his childhood in Glasgow, the development of his skills as a boy and his determination to succeed as a footballer. Widely looked upon as a player in the same class as George Best and Jimmy Johnstone, the performance for which he is best remembered came in the 1970 FA Cup Final against Chelsea, when his dribbling skills won him the Man of the Match award.

Providing a unique insight into the factors behind Leeds’ emergence as a major player in European football under the management of Don Revie, Gray discusses his experiences under five subsequent managers, and his own period of time in the job.

No less intriguing is Gray’s account of his life in the ten years he was not affiliated with Leeds, and the resurgence of Leeds and himself since he returned there in 1995.”

Because, as Peter Drucker once said, everything you learned is wrong — at best, it is misleading and insufficient. You typically learn in school, workshops, and seminars that if you can manage the work and serve the people, you have what it takes. It's not true. Maybe you have enough stuff to be a pretty good manager, but it takes a lot more to be a good leader. The Wizard and the Warrior gives leaders the insight and courage they need to take risks on behalf of values they cherish and the people they guide. Great leaders must act both as wizard, calling on imagination, creativity, meaning, and magic, and as warrior, mobilizing strength, courage, and willingness to fight as necessary to fulfil their mission.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Set in the background of the national history the story accelerates down the years — threaded with family problems, humour and drama often lie together, and in later years suspense is rarely absent. The tale is a true one without the cheap device of omitting the unpalatable and it depicts most of the range of human performance from inspiration and genius to utter imbecility. At the end one is left amazed that the firm still stands, but Webster and Horsfall, as it is now known, still remains — battered perhaps, but still on solid rock after two and a half centuries.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Dressage for the Event Horse by Ferdi Eilberg & Gillian Newsum (£13.00)Publisher: The Kenilworth Press — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition.

Description: Jacket illustration: Mary Thomson and King William, Barcelona, 1992. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Diagrams;

From the cover: “It is now widely accepted that good dressage is a basic necessity for the success of any event horse. But many event riders find it difficult to produce a calm, fluent and accurate test on a horse who is bursting with energy and looking for the first fence.

Dressage trainer Ferdi Eilberg has worked closely with eventers for many years. He recognises the particular difficulties encountered by ultra-fit thoroughbreds and their riders. He explains that correct work on the flat is vital, not only because it provides the means of control but also because it enables the rider to develop his horse into the type of athlete the sport requires. A gymnastic horse can use himself better:
  • on the flat, by producing better balance and paces;
  • over jumps, by using his back correctly; and
  • between cross-country fences, by maintaining better rhythm and control.
Today, even at novice level, competition for a place can be fierce. So having a handsome lead after the dressage, or at least being up with the leaders, gives you a distinct advantage over your fellow competitors.

By following Ferdi Eilberg’s advice on training and competition technique, event riders from novice to advanced can significantly improve their horse’s performance and thereby their chances of beating the opposition in all phases.”
