The Piercebridge Formula: A Dramatic New View of Roman History by Raymond Selkirk (£88.00)Publisher: Patrick Stephens — 1983Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition.

Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Signed by the author on the title page — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium.

From the cover: “Though deceptively simple, the Piercebridge Formula will revolutionise our view of Roman Britain. Its implications are destined to influence archaeologists for many years to come. For what freelance pilot turned amateur archaeologist Raymond Selkirk has discovered is that the Roman Conquest of Britain was carried out by water transport and not by road as has been commonly supposed. His theory was proved at Piercebridge, on the River Tees, where, by a combination of brilliant aerial surveys and detective work on the ground, he found the archetypal water-supplied Roman site. For some time he had strongly suspected that waterways must be the answer, for how could ox-carts have travelled on Roman roads which often climbed gradients which would daunt a modern saloon car? Also, how could the oxen have carried any load at all when they would have needed all their strength merely to pull carts laden with fodder for themselves?

At Piercebridge it became clear that where a Roman road crosses a river, there is an excellent chance of finding a Roman site. This formula was then applied to other areas… and it worked! At one time the finding of an unknown site was a rarity but Selkirk and his team of enthusiasts produced remarkable results in a very short time. Yet the full effects of the Piercebridge Formula are only just starting to be felt, for what is true of Britain must logically apply to the whole Roman Empire. The prospects for further exploration are therefore tremendous and the author goes to great lengths to enlist the aid of his readers, both at home and abroad, in following up leads which will help to uncover further remains. Suspected sites are all named with exact locations and map references so that those with sufficient enthusiasm may continue this fascinating quest. The storm which this book will cause in archaeological circles has barely started, the search has only just begun.”

ABM ARTbibliographies Modern Volume 38 Number 1 2007 by Rachel Brockhurs; , Laura Clarke; (£37.00)Publisher: ProQuest — 2007Binding: Hardback (Laminated Boards) Condition: Near Fine.Description: Abstracts of the Current Literature of Modern Art, PhotographLy and Design. From the introduction: “The subject coverage starts at c.1880 (except in the case of photography which is covered from its invention), in order to include the art of the late 19th century; those artists and movements whose work represents the roots of 20th century art, and without which the latter cannot be fully studied, are also included. Within the period outlined the aim is to cover all aspects of art, crafts, design, and photography. The coverage of periodicals used to concentrate on the 12-month period prior to publication. Thus Volume 30 (1999) provided coverage of the periodical literature for 1998. However, since Volume 31, no. 1 (2000) we have aimed to become more current in our coverage, and each issue will now include journals from the current and preceding years. In cases where publication of periodicals is delayed, the most recent issue is covered; also backlog issues are sometimes included.” White boards with Black titling to the Spine & Upper Board.Notes: Size: 12" x 8½". 694 pages.

The Most Beautiful Villages of France by Dominique Reperant (£28.50)Publisher: Thames & Hudson — 2002Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0500541620]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: Jacket illustration: Front: A view from the castle of the medieval streets of Turenne. Back: The village of Penne, built beneath a rock, is one of the most breathtaking sights in the gorge of Aveyron. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Plans;

From the cover: “Here is a visual celebration of France’s most beautiful and perfectly preserved medieval villages. Spectacular colour photographs capture their regional ambience and special character, while detailed texts explain the foundation of each village and the growth of the community.

The demands of defence and trade intertwine, from the walled bastides of the Southwest with their great market squares, to the hill-top refuges of the Mediterranean, precariously perched and turned towards the sun. Each village is a harmonious marriage of architecture and landscape: the ancient timber buildings of Saint-Veran are surrounded by alpine forests; the startlingly rosy village of Collanges-la-Rouge is named after the local red sandstone of which it is made. Here too are Mont-Saint-Michel, Vezelay and Conques, where settlements cluster around majestic monuments from the Middle Ages.

Complementing the selection of villages is a list of nearby hotels and restaurants. An extended list of protected villages will prove a useful guide for travellers to France and for all those with an interest in the preservation of architectural heritage.”

India by Antonio Monroy (£27.00)Publisher: Orbis — 1985Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0856139467]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with the expected associated chafing to the dust wrapper. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “India, the world’s second most populous country, possesses an extraordinary diversity of peoples whose complex religious, cultural and linguistic divisions are lost in antiquity. But this huge subcontinent is distinguished by an intense religious consciousness which permeates the whole of life. Every aspect of Indian culture is rooted in powerful religious and philosophical ideas — whether Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jain, Muslim or Sikh; or the product of one of the many tribal and traditional cults still prevalent in village life.

This volume presents India as it is today, and discusses the history and geography of the land as it has influenced the development of myth, religion and language. India is a conjunction of contradictory elements where modern society is still influenced by the pressures of tribe and caste; where her art and architecture combine subtle metaphysics with an extraordinary sensuality and raw physical energy. This book celebrates, in words and pictures, the vigour and abundance of an age-old culture where traditions have been re-animated by the impetus of folklore, legend and imagination.

The brilliant colour photography of Antonio Martinelli and Roberto Meazza captures the events, places, and sensations of everyday India with sensitivity and sympathy. Antonio Monroy, who knows India and its culture well, has provided a text which describes and explains in detail the qualities which make India, its history, religion, society, architecture, even its cinema, unique amongst the world’s cultures. The result is a magnificent study of the subcontinent, both past and present.”

The Illustrated Encyclopedia Of Commercial Aircraft by Editor-in-Chief Bill Gunston (£27.00)Publisher: Windward — 1980Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0711200602]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper and a small scuff to the upper panel. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Colour Drawings; Diagrams; Tables;

From the cover: “This book is a comprehensive account of all the major commercial aircraft, from the first jets like the Nene Viking and Jet Lancastrian, to possible futuristic designs like slew-winged airliners and hydrogen-fuelled aircraft. Also included are the wide-bodied giants of today, the Boeing 747 and the 11-86, together with supersonic types such as the Anglo-French Concorde and the Russian Tu-144. The latter was the first supersonic airliner to fly and enter service, even though its full-scale development began after that of Concorde.

Civil helicopters play a vital role in urban communications and link remote and difficult sites like oil rigs and timber camps. The wide range of general aviation aircraft complement these helicopters, since both are used for tasks like search and rescue, crop-spraying, air-ambulances, fire-fighting, aerial photography and as executive transports.

The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Commercial Aircraft contains lists of specifications, three-views, cutaways and colour illustrations, as well as the historical and mechanical details of the aircraft which are changing the face of the world.”

Treasures from the National Trust by Various (£27.00)Publisher: National Trust Books — 2007Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition.

Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “The National Trust cares for some of the most important, varied and valuable historical collections in Britain. From paintings by Rubens to elaborate Boulle furniture, the enormous range of priceless objects held in the Trust’s hundreds of historic properties is unequalled, and many of them are still housed in the places for which (hey were originally commissioned or acquired. This sumptuous book brings together some of the best of this outstanding collection.

Divided into themed chapters such as Arms & Armour, Clocks, Paintings, Textiles, Furniture and Transport, Treasures from the National Trust displays and describes each piece in an accessible way, ideal both for those with little knowledge of art history and artefacts and those more versed in the subjects.

Objects are chosen both for their beauty and their historical interest, and range from unique clocks, unusual costumes and rare books to more eclectic objects, such as the bicycles in the Hundred Wheels attic at Snowshill Manor, or even the decommissioned atomic bomb casing at Orford Ness. These valuable articles bridge the centuries, stretching from ancient Greek vases to 20th-century modernist furniture. Featuring stunning photography, this book is an essential guide to the very best of Britain’s treasures.”

Victorian Britain and Ireland in Colour by Janice Anderson & Reinhard Schultz (£26.00)Publisher: Carlton — 2005Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1844425584]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Leans slightly otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: From the cover: “The Victorian age was one of expansion in many areas, none more so than that of JM travel. With the success of explorers worldwide people’s curiosity grew, and the advent of the railroad in Great Britain and Ireland, which at that time was part of the United Kingdom, meant that the general public could do their own exploring. Many parts of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales that had, at one time, seemed remote were now within relatively easy travelling distance.

This collection of unique polychrome colour photographs, which have never been seen before, captures many of the vistas that became so popular with Victorian holidaymakers -from the quaint and picturesque snapshots of Devon and Cornwall to the tranquillity of the Irish countryside via the beautiful coastline of Wales or the hustle and bustle of London, up to the broads of Norfolk and further north to the wild, heather-strewn hills and awe-inspiring lochs of Scotland.

Many of these sites are still highly popular holiday venues and with good reason, since for the most part they have been protected for historical or environmental reasons. What they share is an abundance of charm and character and, in the cases of those rural and coastal locations, a measure of, peace and tranquillity.

Accompanied by informative, and often thought-provoking captions, these pictures will transport the reader back to a time when the pace of life was, for all its new inventions, a little calmer and more leisurely. Victorian Britain & Ireland in Colour is a thoroughly engaging window on to a bygone age that will captivate readers.”

Castles from the Air: An Aerial Portrait of Britain's Finest Castles by Paul Johnson (£22.00)Publisher: London: Bloomsbury — 2006Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0747587469]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Boards Lightly rubbed at head and tail of the spine. Text bright and tight. A nice, tight, copy.Description: Contains a glossary. Contains a glossary of terms. Jacket illustration: Ludlow Castle, Shropshire. Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “The castles of Britain are icons of history. They were built to mark the domains of the powerful, and stood as symbols of authority. Their structures reflect the highest technology of the day — solid against battering rams, siege and cannon fire. And their locations identify the prevailing understanding of how the lie of the land could be turned to advantage. But imposing as the view from the ground can be, nothing shows their form and purpose better than the view from above.

Castles from the Air traces the origin and evolution of British castles from their Norman and earlier beginnings, through the great age of castle building in the late thirteenth and early fourteenth centuries to the slow decline of castles as an architectural form in the fifteenth century. Through the Civil War in the seventeenth century, and the Napoleonic wars at the turn of the nineteenth century, although no longer the imposing bulwarks of earlier times, castles continued their important defensive role.

In Castles from the Air, hundreds of years of history are captured at a glance in more than 150 photographs of outstanding quality, revealing the past in a new and illuminating way. No better, nor more beautiful portrait of the castles of England, Scotland and Wales has ever been published before.”

Steam: An Evocative Tribute to the Last Days of Steam Trains by Colin Garratt (£21.00)Publisher: London: Bounty Books — 2006Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 9780753713990]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 but the last leaf slightly mis-trimmed at the bottom corner. Description: Contains: Colour photographs;

From the cover: “This book is the finest visual tribute to the steam locomotive ever published. Colin Garratt’s text and photography reflects his unique odyssey to document, in pictures and words, the Last Steam Locomotives of the World. With hundreds of matchless photographs, this book vividly portrays real working steam eking out its final moments amid the great landscapes of the world.

No preserved or tourist revival trains appear within these pages for they lie outside the scope of Colin Garratt’s work. The vast majority of locomotives depicted in this book will be, or more likely have been, broken up. This book covers all continents and includes subjects from all the main schools of locomotive design, vividly depicted in every conceivable mood and environment.

The steam locomotive is a sensuous and beautiful creation. It is the one truly living machine and Colin Garratt’s unparalleled photography captures every nuance of its personality. In the course of his expeditions, he has visited some of the remotest places on earth and some of the adventures described in words in this volume are truly breathtaking. He continues to scour the ends of the earth in search of imperilled survivors.”

From the cover: “The World’s Most Photographed explores the photographic image of ten of the best-known faces of modern history. By unearthing photographs that have previously been lost or suppressed, author Robin Muir demonstrates not only how the public image of each subject was manipulated, but he also gives fresh insights into their personalities and lives. The ten selected personalities range from a crowned head of state to a world-beating boxer, from film stars to a fascist dictator. Illustrated with over 180 photographs, the book creates a compelling new perspective on the history of celebrity, notoriety and the nature of iconography.”

William Morris by Himself: Designs and Writings by Edited by Gillian Naylor (£21.00)Publisher: Boston, New York, London: Little, Brown & Company — 2000Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0316855073]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Price Clipped. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: First in this edition. [First: MacDonald & Co, 1988] Illustrated by way of: Colour Plates;

From the cover: “Through his own work and in his own words, the book traces the fascinating progress of William Morris, pre-Raphaelite poet and architectural student into designer, writer and pioneer socialist. His youthful enthusiasm for the Middle Ages and Gothic architecture fired him with the conviction that he must dedicate his life to Art .

Later letters written to friends explain how in the industrialised nineteenth century Morris become preoccupied with the loss of traditional skills and pride in work and during the last ten years of his life he became increasingly involved in political agitation, and his stories, poems and lectures all reflect his commitment to the socialist cause and his ideals for art and society.

Other extracts from his letters and poems reveal more intimate aspects of Morris’s life and personality, reflecting the despair and isolation he felt over the breakdown of his marriage and his reliance on the friends who helped him through his personal crisis. William Morris by Himself is a tribute to an exceptional man, whose work and reputation have survived for more than a century.”

Castles from the Air: An Aerial Portrait of Britain's Finest Castles by Paul Johnson (£20.50)Publisher: London: Bloomsbury — 2006Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0747587469]Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper faded at the top edge with a little rubbing to the edges. Small gift sticker covering the price. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise. Description: Contains a glossary. Contains a glossary of terms. Jacket illustration: Ludlow Castle, Shropshire. Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “The castles of Britain are icons of history. They were built to mark the domains of the powerful, and stood as symbols of authority. Their structures reflect the highest technology of the day — solid against battering rams, siege and cannon fire. And their locations identify the prevailing understanding of how the lie of the land could be turned to advantage. But imposing as the view from the ground can be, nothing shows their form and purpose better than the view from above.

Castles from the Air traces the origin and evolution of British castles from their Norman and earlier beginnings, through the great age of castle building in the late thirteenth and early fourteenth centuries to the slow decline of castles as an architectural form in the fifteenth century. Through the Civil War in the seventeenth century, and the Napoleonic wars at the turn of the nineteenth century, although no longer the imposing bulwarks of earlier times, castles continued their important defensive role.

In Castles from the Air, hundreds of years of history are captured at a glance in more than 150 photographs of outstanding quality, revealing the past in a new and illuminating way. No better, nor more beautiful portrait of the castles of England, Scotland and Wales has ever been published before.”

Charts of War: The Maps and Charts That Have Informed and Illustrated War At Sea by John Blake (£20.00)Publisher: London: Conway — 2006Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1844860310]Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper pulled at the head of the upper panel with two small nicks toward the top corner. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “Information is power, and in centuries past sea charts were guarded by both a ship’s navigator and the State, stretched on oak boards or rolled in leather cylindrical quivers, locked away. As the European nations began their territorial acquisition and contest in earnest, the information charts contained of harbour approaches, coastal landmarks and hazards, currents and tides, could give one side or another the advantage.

From the ships of small expeditionary fleets, which carried navigational charts, to the requirements of modern ships involved in combined operations, which need charts to include a whole range of information, John Blake has produced a fascinating, illustrated account of the role that charts have played in planning, preventing, conducting and recording war at sea. The selection not only includes charts depicting major battles and amphibious operations, but those drawn up for tactical and espionage purposes, for coastal defence and the positioning of forts along rivers and at the entrance to harbours.

Chapters run in chronological order, organized according to the overall political scene, but the main focus is on the development of chart making and surveying in relation to changing warfare techniques. Informative captions accompany each chart, setting them in historical context and providing illuminating details about the main protagonists and the chart makers and surveyors themselves. Taken from a range of international maritime archives, they include portolan charts of Spanish acquisitions in the New World; Francis Drake’s attack of Cadiz in 1587, known as ‘the singeing of the King of Spain’s beard’; the Dutch attack on Chatham in 1667 during the Second Anglo-Dutch War; a plan of Chesapeake Bay where British naval forces failed to relieve General Cornwallis during the American War of Independence; William Bligh’s chart of the Battle of Copenhagen in 1801; charts of the Battle of Jutland, one British, one German; and the operational chart drawn up before the D-Day landings at Omaha beach.”

Paul Heathcote's Rhubarb and Black Pudding by Matthew Fort (£19.00)Publisher: Fourth Estate — 1998Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1857025008]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Leans slightly. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “Paul Heathcote is a phenomenon even among the elite band of Britain’s master chefs. Not only has he resolutely stayed put in his native Lancashire to become one of the few Michelin-starred English chefs north of Watford, but he has also achieved this while pioneering his own special brand of haute cuisine, which is quite distinctively British, if not English — even Lancastrian.

Deconstructing and elevating traditional dishes like black pudding, roast duckling with mead, pig’s trotters stuffed with ham hock, apple crumble soufflé and deep-fried Stilton fritters, Heathcote has created the sort of cuisine du terroir so characteristic of the great French chefs but hitherto virtually unknown amongst their British counterparts.

In Rhubarb & Black Pudding, Paul Heathcote and award-winning food writer Matthew Fort have gathered together the best of Heathcote’s recipes. Arranged by seasons, they include dishes as varied as Pressed Ham Terrine; Fillet of Red Bream Marinated in Whisky and Dill; Roast Rack of Spring Lamb with Hot-pot Potatoes, Braised Lentils, Roast Shallots and Rosemary Juice; Compote of Caramelized Rhubarb with Elderflower Cream; and Creamed Rice Pudding Scented with Hazelnut. Matthew’s colourful introductions to each section also vividly convey the changing seasonal landscape and the creative processes as they unfold in the kitchen.

With stunning colour photography of the food, clear black-and-white reportage of the kitchens and evocative landscapes of the Ribble Valley through the changing seasons, Rhubarb & Black Pudding provides a unique picture of a great chef at work.”

America The Beautiful by Anon. (£18.50)Publisher: Montral: Brompton Publications — 1992Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0861244117]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “America is a land rich and spacious, stunning in beauty and still, in places, savage in spirit, a land complex and ever-changing yet unquestionably ‘American’ in essence. The Grand Canyon, Yellowstone’s Old Faithful, Mt Rushmore, Florida’s magical Disney World and the Statue of Liberty are only a few of America’s most well-known and best-loved sights. But in this vast and varied land lie many more places of unsuspected beauty and charm, places which will kindle the imagination and satiate the curiosity, places which but for America The Beautiful would go by unnoticed and unacclaimed. Whether it be the extraordinary pastel hues of Arizona’s deserts or a blinding bright Midwestern winter morning, the intricate waterways of Florida’s Everglades or a lonely farmstead tucked away in the rolling hills of Vermont, the smiling and welcoming faces of Hawaii’s ‘Aloha girls’ or an Alaskan Eskimo clad in furs, the ghost towns of the West or a busy New York street, ‘America The Beautiful’ brings it to life.”

The World Encyclopedia of Locomotives: A Complete Guide to the World's Most Fabulous Locomotives by Colin Garratt (£18.50)Publisher: Lorenz — 1997Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 1859674550]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges. Leans slightly. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Later Printing. Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “Since the birth of the railroads in the early Industrial Age, people across the world have been fascinated by the locomotive as an enduring symbol of the advance of technology and as a powerful means of transport. From the early beginnings of steam power to today’s awe-inspiring high-speed passenger trains, The World Encyclopedia of Locomotives spans nearly two centuries of locomotive development worldwide in an easy-to-use format that will appeal to every railway enthusiast.

Divided into three sections, the book is organized chronologically, documenting developments and innovations in a concise and authoritative text.

Part One — The Birth of the Railways charts the very beginnings of locomotive design up to 1900. Starting with the British locomotives of the 1830s and the Battle of the Gauges, we move on to the early North American freight trains and the great building schools across the world.

Part Two — The Golden Age of Steam details the early British innovations in steam; the American Mikados, Shays, Switchers and Record Breakers; the early Canadian freight trains; European mountain power; and the enduring steam locomotives of India and Latin America — many of which were in use until recently.

Part Three — The 1950s to the Present Day explains the crossover from steam to diesel and electric. It looks at how these changes transformed the locomotive throughout the world into a superior passenger and freight pulling power, making it the supreme form of transport. Bringing us to the present day, this last section highlights the latest developments in world-class locomotive technology, including Europe’s Eurostar and the Japanese bullet train.

Written by world experts in the field and illustrated with over 700 photographs and artwork, The World Encyclopedia of Locomotives is an exhaustive reference work that takes an illuminating glance at a technology that was pivotal in the development of the modern world.”

Warworks: Women, Photography and the Iconography of War by Val Williams (£18.00)Publisher: London: Virago Press Limited — 1994Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 1853815918]Condition: Very Good. Light creasing to the bottom corner of the upper wrapper otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, 11th January - 19th March 1995. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “One of Britain’s most noted photographic curators and historians, Val Williams explores the myriad ways in which women photographers have used war to express major issues in contemporary art and society. In addressing collective memory, gender, sexuality and mass communication, she removes war photography from its niche as reportage and places it as a central channel for the contemporary imagination.

The Holocaust is looked at very differently in the works of Lee Miller and Rachel Lichtenstein; parody is present in Martha Rosler’s Bringing the War Home (House Beautiful) and in Anna Fox’s Weekend Wargames ; Deborah Blight’s Battlefield Panoramas explore war as lost memories; Barbara Alper’s Gulf Channel examines the new reporters, satellite TV; and Moira Mclver looks at men dressed for conflict. The photographs and accompanying essays provide a challenging dimension to photographic and cultural history. “

British Towns by Oliver Benn (£16.50)Publisher: London: Bouverie House — 1999Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0953277119]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “Having explored every aspect of Britain’s capital in his recent Benn’s London, photographer Oliver Benn casts his original eye over some of the most attractive and popular towns of England, Scotland and Wales. As with his previous books, people, activities and the contemporary scene are seen alongside the architecture, interiors and brief history. The 260 stunning colour photographs are complemented by lively essays from local authors in each town.

The towns featured in this book are chosen for their pictorial evocation of urban lifestyle throughout the ages, and are grouped under five thematic headings. The Medieval and Renaissance towns of Cambridge, Oxford and Warwick with their striking panoramas and atmospheric interiors are like a time capsule of an earlier age, but very much alive today as seats of learning and cultural attractions. The Georgian and Regency towns of Edinburgh, Bath and Brighton seem to retain the gracious air of eighteenth century life. The Cathedral Cities of Salisbury, Exeter and Lincoln remind us of the importance of our Christian heritage in the development of our urban centres.

As Peter Richards points out in his Introduction: “In essence, all towns are clusters of streets and houses that depend for their survival on commerce”. Ludlow, Richmond in Yorkshire and Saffron Walden are fine examples of traditional but flourishing Market Towns. Finally, the identity of our island has always been bound up with the sea, with its lure to adventure and economic significance. This aspect is revealed by the historic but still active Ports of Cardiff, Conwy and Dartmouth.

Benn’s photographs explore unfamiliar corners of towns we thought we knew and familiar places from unfamiliar angles: from above, from street-level and from the inside. The British town is shown as: “a magnificent diversity of buildings and townscapes”.”

Italy by Herbert Ypma (£15.50)Publisher: Thames & Hudson — 2002Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0500283478]Condition: Near Fine.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “For this new volume of Hip Hotels, Herbert Ypma has ventured far beyond the rolling hills of Tuscany, the postcard-perfect Amalfi Coast, or the Grand Tour destinations of Venice, Florence and Rome, to introduce real discoveries in under-explored regions like Puglia, Basilicata and Le Marche. You might be inspired to visit the utterly refined Hotel Raya on the Aeolian island of Panarea, from whose all-white terraces you can watch the volcano of Stromboli spurt fiery lava into the night skies. At the opposite end of the country, in the ultra-stylish ski town of Cortina d’Ampezzo, is Hotel de la Poste, run today by the same family as when Hemingway used to drive up from Venice in the early 1930s. Or if you prefer the beach life and night life of the Adriatic Coast, then fashion designer Alberta Ferretti’s Carducci 76 makes a superslick base. Many hotels are a complete surprise: ancient cave-dwellings in the eroded rocky landscape of Basilicata, or the trulli of Puglia, centuries-old igloo-like constructions with conical slate roofs. And whether cave, abbey, olive mill, fishing hut or barefoot beachside palazzo, every one of these unique hotels is true to its locale in architecture, design and gastronomy.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 8".

[ISBN: 1854375660]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Published to accompany the exhibition held at Tate Britain, 16 June-4 September 2005. Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Colour Plates; Maps;

From the cover: “Accompanying a major new BBC1 series presented by David Dimbleby and an important exhibition at Tate Britain, A Picture of Britain is a celebration of the British landscape and the art that it has inspired, from Constable to Lowry, from Turner to Nash. Written by David Dimbleby and leading experts on British art, it is beautifully illustrated with landscape photography and great works of art.

From the slopes of Snowdonia to the industrial Black Country, the grandeur of the Scottish Highlands to the meadows of Suffolk, the British landscape has inspired artists and writers for generations. But the authors show how it is only in the last three hundred years, stirred up by art and poetry, that large numbers of people have come to admire and visit the wilder and more rugged vistas. In paintings, photographs and words, this remarkable book captures our rich cultural heritage, creating for the reader A Picture of Britain.”

Benson and Hedges Cricket Year Fourteenth Edition September 1994 to September 1995 by David Lemmon (£14.50)Publisher: Headline — 1995Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0747214719]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Tables;

From the cover: “This fourteenth edition of the Benson and Hedges Cricket Year has been revamped to make it even more compulsive and essential reading than ever before. There are controversial and outspoken articles from Alan Lee of The Times on England’s Ashes tour, from Derek Pringle on the future for English cricket, and from Frank Hayes on the relationship between the captain and selectors.

The section on England has been greatly enlarged and is now presented by competition rather than chronologically to make it easier to follow how each tournament has progressed. Pride of place in the domestic season goes to the visiting West Indies, whose six-Test tour drew capacity crowds. The form charts for each first-class side are a popular feature of the book, while the limited-overs statistics are given in an easily accessible manner. And all the major issues of the season are discussed.

Full coverage of first-class cricket throughout the world is maintained, and, as in previous years, scorecards and reports on all Test matches and limited-overs internationals played around the world in the past twelve months are given. But it has been a dramatic period for world cricket, with allegations 6f match-fixing and bribery throwing the sport — and Pakistani cricket in particular — into turmoil. While the Australians continued their revival, beating both England and West Indies in quick succession — the first side to win in the Caribbean since 1972-3 — to lay claim to being the best side in the world.

Graham Gooch, who retired from international cricket during the year has written a lively foreword that will provoke much debate and comment. While the World XI, selected by the editor on the basis of performances over the year, always includes some controversial choices. A new feature provides a statistical answer as to who have been the leading nations in Test cricket and limited-overs internationals in the past twelve months.

Unique in style and content, Benson and Hedges Cricket Year is available within six weeks of the end of the English season and is the first book to detail all the major events of the year. Its combination of uninhibited comment, lavish photography and comprehensive statistics from around the world makes it an essential autumn purchase for all cricket fans.”
