Atmospheric Boundary Layer Flows: Their Structure and Measurement by J. C. Kaimal & J. J. Finnigan (£67.00)Publisher: New York & Oxford: Oxford University Press — 1994Binding: Hardback [ISBN: 0195062396]Condition: Near Fine. Description: Illustrated by way of: Graphs; Diagrams;

From the cover: “Boundary Layer Meteorology is the study of the physical processes that take place in the layer of air that is most influenced by the earth’s underlying surface. This text gives an uncomplicated view of the structure of the boundary layer, the instruments available for measuring its mean and turbulent properties, how best to make the measurements, and ways to process and analyse the data.

The main applications of the book are in atmospheric modelling, wind engineering, air pollution, and agricultural meteorology. The authors have pioneered research on atmospheric turbulence and flow, and are noted for their contributions to the study of the boundary layer. This important work will interest atmospheric scientists, meteorologists, and students and faculty in these fields.”

Cosmology and Astrophysics Through Problems by T. [Thanu] Padmanabhan (£63.00)Publisher: Cambridge: Cambridge University Press — 1996Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0521467837]Condition: Very Good. Upper wrapper slighty curled. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Graphs;

From the cover: “Modern cosmology and high energy astrophysics have become interdisciplinary research subjects and new graduate students are now expected to assimilate a broad range of physical concepts. This innovative book provides a clear and pedagogical introduction to research in these areas through a series of problems and answers. The problems are designed to develop each core topic in a simple and coherent way and full solutions are provided to make this book completely self-contained.

The first half of the book covers the core subjects of astrophysical processes, gravitational dynamics, radiative processes, fluid mechanics and general relativity. The second half uses these concepts to develop modern cosmology: topics include the Friedmann model and thermal history, dynamics of dark matter and baryons in an expanding universe, physics of high-redshift objects and the very early universe. This unique self-study textbook will be of key interest to graduate students and researchers in cosmology, astrophysics, relativity and theoretical physics. It is particularly well suited to graduate-level courses.”

Principles of Agricultural Economics: Markets and Prices in Less Developed Countries by David Colman; Trevor Young; (£43.00)Publisher: Cambridge University Press — 1995Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0521336643]Condition: Very Good. Pages lightly age-tanned.Description: Reprint. [First: 1989] From the cover: “This textbook addresses the main economic principles required by agricultural economists involved in rural development. The principles of ‘micro-economies’ or ‘price-theory’ are of relevance to economists everywhere, but this book reinforces the message of their relevance for rural development by explaining the theory in the specific context of the agricultural and food sectors of developing countries. Hypothetical and actual empirical illustrations drawn almost exclusively from such countries distinguish this book from other economic principles texts that draw their examples almost invariably from industrialised countries, and also from books more oriented to the issues of rural development. The first half of the book deals with the underlying principles of production, supply and demand. These are essential tools for the study and management of the agricultural sector and food markets. In the second half, supply and demand are brought together into a chapter of equilibrium and exchange. This is followed by chapters on trade and the theory of economic welfare. In the final chapter it is shown that much of the material in the earlier chapters can be combined by agricultural economists into a system for analysing and comparing the effects of alternative agricultural policies. The ability of agricultural economics to provide a consistent framework for the analysis of policy problems thus enables it to make a key contribution to rural development.”Notes: Size: Trade Paperback (9¼" x 6").

The Call Of The Mother by The Lady Emily Lutyens (£32.00)Publisher: Methuen & Co. — 1927Binding: Paperback Condition: Good. A reasonable reading copy only. Heavily faded at the spine and less so at the panels of the fold-over printed wrappers. Edges of the textblock heavily spotted. Text acceptable but slightly fragile now.Description: 2nd Edition [1926]. From the introduction, which sets the scene somewhat: “’Of all the dangers now menacing civilisation the greatest lies in the fact that the coming generation is being so largely recruited from among the accidentally conceived children of the leisured and cultured classes, and the fertile progeny of the physically, mentally, and morally unfit. There are many causes which contribute to this result; on the one hand, venereal disease as a result of sexual indulgence leading to physical and mental degeneracy; the ignorance of the young about questions of sex leading them into bad habits and places of danger; on the other hand, the revolt of women against sexual subjugation; the high cost of living which makes many parents afraid to have children; and, above all, the use of artificial methods of birth control.”Notes: Size: 6¾" x 4¼". 96 pages.

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.”

Bermuda Aerial Views by Scott Stallard (£26.00)Publisher: Oakwell Boulton — 1992Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0920831129]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper which is slightly loose and has a stain at the head of the spine. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Signed by David (Dyer?), Minister of Youth Development, Sport & Recreation. Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “This is the third photographic portrait of Bermuda that Scott Stallard has published in book form. His preceding volumes, Bermuda and Bermuda II, depicted in vibrant colour and immediate detail the beauty of Bermuda that surrounds us everywhere on this exquisite island. Now a new dimension opens up, Bermuda seen in low flight from the air. The photographer in his helicopter passes and re-passes, circles and returns, follows as a painter follows with a brush each inlet and contour, each little revelation of the scene below.

It is remarkable that a place so small in physical size should offer such variety of visual beauty as to be a world to itself. Seen from the close range of our circling helicopter, Bermuda has all the varied intimacy that we have come to expect from Scott Stallard. He takes us back and forth, from garden to garden, house to house, from churches to harbours, looking down on Trimingham’s one minute and on the QE2at Dockyard in the next.

This is the work of an artist inspired by his subject. There is tremendous enthusiasm in his Introduction. He writes, ‘suddenly it is all new to me. This is the thrill of seeing Bermuda from the air. What has been viewed all our lives from one perspective is magically transformed to another. It is a discovery that this chain of islands is even more beautiful than we knew.

For all Bermudians, for those who know and love the island, for the visitor who wishes to cherish a memory of this special place, here is the completion of a unique and spectacular trilogy..”

Life in Ancient Egypt by Eugen Strouhal (£26.00)Publisher: Cambridge University Press — 1992Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0521440939]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Chronological Tables; Colour Photographs; Maps [1];

From the cover: “There is a wealth of literature on the kings of ancient Egypt, on the history of their reigns, and on their temples and pyramids. But of the ordinary, hard-working people who left us such awe-inspiring monuments as well as beautiful everyday objects, our knowledge remains hazy. Happily there is plenty of evidence, physical as well as literary and artistic, on which the author of this rare insight into everyday life in ancient Egypt has been able to draw, offering us the fruits of a lifetime of tireless research and fieldwork. He charts the progress of the ancient Egyptian step by step from cradle to grave, from children’s games to adult entertainment, from courtship to marriage and sometimes to divorce. The position of women in society is discussed in detail, as is fashion and the care of the body. The author describes the work of farmers, fishermen, and hunters, of artisans and builders, artists and scribes, priests and healers. In the closing chapter we follow the ancient Egyptian on the arduous last journey to the gates of the other world.

Few studies of ancient Egypt cover so broad a scope. The text is complemented by many illustrations of artefacts, works of art, and scenes of life in ancient Egypt as recorded in tomb reliefs and paintings and on papyri. Many of Werner Forman’s superb photographs were taken especially for this volume in Egypt and in the great public and private collections.”

He charts the progress of the ancient Egyptian step by step from cradle to grave, from children’s games to adult entertainment, from courtship to marriage and sometimes to divorce. The position of women in society is discussed in detail, as is fashion and the care of the body. The author describes the work of farmers, fishermen, and hunters, of artisans and builders, artists and scribes, priests and healers. In the closing chapter we follow the ancient Egyptian on the arduous last journey to the gates of the other world.

Few studies of ancient Egypt cover so broad a scope. The text is complemented by many illustrations of artefacts, works of art, and scenes of life in ancient Egypt as recorded in tomb reliefs and paintings and on papyri. Many of Werner Forman’s superb photographs were taken specially for this volume in Egypt and in the great public and private collections.”

Creating Language Crimes: How Law Enforcement Uses (and Misuses) Language by Roger W. Shuy (£23.00)Publisher: Oxford University Press — 2005Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0195181662]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Small personal monogram to the first blank. Description: FROM THE COVER: “THIS BOOK by Roger W. Shuy, the senior figure in forensic linguistics, is the first to explain in an accessible way the vital role that linguistic evidence and its proper analysis play in criminal investigations.

Shuy provides compelling case studies of how language functions in investigations involving, among others, wired undercover operatives, and the interrogation of suspects. He makes the point that language evidence can be as important as physical evidence, but yet does not enjoy the same degree of scrutiny by investigators, attorneys, and the courts. Beyond this, however, his more controversial thesis is that police frequently misuse or manipulate language, using various powerful controversial strategies, in order to intentionally create an impression of the targets’ guilt or even to get them to confess.

This book makes its case by analyzing a dozen criminal cases involving a variety of crimes, such as fraud, bribery, stolen property, murder, and others. About half involve co-operating witnesses who do the tape recording, and the other half undercover police officers. These cases demonstrate how undercover operatives use different conversational strategies, such as overlapping conversation, ambiguity, interruption, refusing to take “no” for an answer, and others to create a negative impression of the targets on later listeners.

Creating Language Crimes provides a fascinating window into a little-known and discussed facet of law enforcement. It will appeal to anyone concerned with language (particularly sociolinguists and discourse analysts), as well as to those involved in law enforcement and criminal cases.”

Crime Or Disease? by Antony Flew (£23.00)Publisher: London: Macmillan — 1973Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0333114094]Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with heavier tanning to the spine. Edges of the textblock heavily tanned. Previous owners' gift inscription to the first blank. The pages are somewhat tanned, if tight, and a little musty. Description: From the cover: “Professor Flew here attacks the present gross over-extensions of the notion of mental disease on both sides of the Atlantic. He defends human dignity and responsibility against the suggestion that we are all, or most of us, ‘sick, sick, sick’. In particular, he challenges the paternalist pretensions of those who claim a right to push and manipulate people because these people are allegedly sick, and so irresponsible.

A key idea of this book is that, in a typical ordinary disease, it is the patient who complains of the disease rather than someone else who complains about the patient. Taking this as a paradigm, it is preposterous, Flew contends, to say that most homosexuals, for instance, are mentally ill. If an analogy with physical disease is to be the basis for urging that mental disease be similarly excused, this basic supposed analogy must not be forgotten when attempts are made to elucidate the concept of mental disease.

This may seem obvious, but the author is able to cite plentiful evidence to show that many who should know better get into great, and even dangerous, muddles over the nature of mental disease — and this through their failure to consider how what they propose to call mental disease does, and does not, resemble syphilis, measles, etc.

Flew seeks in this study to complement the work of Dr Thomas Szasz, looking as a philosopher at problems which Szasz discusses as a psychiatrist. Part I (Survey of the Logical Geography ) is of particular interest to students of philosophy and politics in that it relates modern discussion of the problem to the Plato of The Republic. It also takes note in this context of Samuel Butler’s Erewhon. The book will also be of direct relevance to students of Social Science (including penology), Social Administration, Philosophy of Education and Psychiatry.”

A dozen new chapters have been written, dealing with hafnium, the isobares, the results of mass-spectrography, the segregation of isotopes, atomic structure, active hydrogen, new hydrides, intense drying, and Tesla-luminescence spectra. A corresponding amount of the old text has been withdrawn in order to keep the book within reasonable compass.

From the cover: “Crop circles have become a feature of the British landscape during the last few summers, but they are no recent phenomenon. They have appeared each summer for thousands of years, and the sites of their ancient precursors are to be found in most isolated parts of the British Isles.

In this astounding and revelatory book, Dr Meaden, a professional physicist and meteorologist with a lifelong interest in archaeology, makes the link between the crop circles and the mega-lithic stone circles to solve a mystery that has haunted generations of antiquarians and laypeople alike.

What was the purpose of the stone circles? Why were they built where they were? What inspired their strange carvings of spirals, cup-marks and cup-and-ring marks? Why did the Neolithic peoples construct round barrows as resting places for their honoured dead?

Through his understanding of the physical forces which create crop circles, the author has solved the riddle of the stones, revealing for the first time the nature of the cult which motivated the entire lives of our Stone Age forebears. He is able to explain the meaning of such mysterious monuments as Silbury Hill in Wiltshire and Newgrange in Ireland, and he unveils a religion of such power that its symbols permeated Neolithic society as did the symbol of the Cross in the early years of the Christian Church.

From the pages of this book the shadowy years of prehistory shine forth in a new light, giving us a totally unexpected insight into the lives of Stone Age people, their view of the world and natural forces and, above all, into the awesome, all-pervading presence which inspired them to unparalleled feats of engineering.

The Goddess of the Stones will startle the archaeological world and excite all those who are captivated by the mysteries of our ancient past. Illustrated with photographs in colour and black and white, and with numerous drawings, it is an outstanding breakthrough in our knowledge of prehistory.”

Yoga For You: A Step-by-step Guide to Yoga At Home For Everybody by Tara Fraser (£19.00)Publisher: Duncan Baird Publishers — 2001Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1903296102]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper pulled at the head of the upper panel otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Diagrams;

From the cover: “Yoga for You is a complete illustrated practical guide that reflects some of the most important developments in modern teaching — the release of pent-up stress from busy lives, the emphasis on physical comfort and safety (working within your own abilities rather than forcing yourself into demanding postures), and the holistic approach, which combines yoga with an appropriate lifestyle, especially with regard to diet and meditation.

Whatever your level of fitness and flexibility, Yoga for You is designed to meet your needs — whether you are a complete beginner or already have experience from classes.

More than 200 step-by-step colour photographs take you through the essential asanas (postures) and sequences. The author explains the essentials in plain, simple language. Special "boxes" suggest how beginners can adapt the classic postures to make them easier to perform — while more experienced students are shown how to progress to more challenging asanas as they build up their skills.

The practical core of the book is complemented by coverage of yoga’s traditional physiological, philosophical and spiritual context, and its roots in ancient India. The idea that the body has its own energy pathways and centres in the form of nadis and chakras is explored in a way that is clear and inspiring to Western readers.

Specific topics addressed include: the different types of yoga; finding and working with a teacher; how to start practising yoga at home; posture sequences; doing yoga with a partner; and learning to meditate.

Whatever your lifestyle, time pressures, beliefs, or levels of flexibility and fitness, Yoga for You takes you step by step along the path to inner and outer calm.”

Much of the current interest in the occult reaches little deeper than the horoscopes in popular newspapers and magazines, but beneath mere curiosity lies a deep and persistent urge to make sense of man’s life and his relation to the universe.

Modern science, though a valuable tool in understanding the physical world, has failed to satisfy this urge: it is still unable to unravel the depths of man’s subconscious or reveal the forces that shape his character.

All those willing to go beyond the popular image of horoscopes, will find here a fresh approach to traditional topics together with the essential balance of the historical perspective, will be fascinated by the unfolding of the mysteries of astrological science.

Superb colour plates appear throughout, with hundreds of black and white illustrations..”

From the cover: “The Encyclopedia of Modelmaking Techniques presents an entirely new techniques-based approach to modelmaking. Materials, methods and components used in one area of modelmaking can often be transferred to another with very positive results. Rather than dealing with traditional subject areas, four main themes are identified — Structures, Landscapes, Figures and animals and Vehicles and machinery — and used to demonstrate the relevant techniques for a variety of materials. This approach enables the professional or hobby building modeller to access the section on figures to populate his landscape. Similarly, the military figure or vehicle modeller can find in the landscape section the secrets for placing his work in a background context.

This book also includes a brief history of models and modelmaking. A section on design looks at the different processes of research and construction and designing specifically for safety, ease of construction, display, control and operation. Comprehensive tools and materials lists identify both essential and supplementary items and ensure that you have the correct tools for your modelling projects.

Each of the four major themes is illustrated by a series of step-by-step projects, demonstrating the various techniques and materials used in professional and hobby modelmaking. An inspirational gallery of works by highly regarded modelmakers is accompanied by detailed descriptions of how the models were created. Finally, a section on presentation will show you how to make the most of your projects by displaying them to their best effect.”

Man the Immortal by John N. East [Henry Burton Tate] (£18.00)Publisher: The Psychic Press — 1960Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in 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: From the cover: “Many have been the postulations on the destiny of Man, and his place in the Universe. The so-called mystery of death and the hereafter has intrigued men’s minds since the dawn of time.

From the plethora of literature on the subject, scant attention has been given to supporting theoretical ideas with scientific fact.

In the author’s first book ETERNAL QUEST, he was able to prove beyond doubt the continued existence of the human soul, or as he prefers to call it, Mind, by relating psychic facts to physical science. In MAN THE IMMORTAL, Mr. East continues to bring his scientific knowledge, experience and scholarship to prove that Mind is the only reality, and that all earthly experiences are necessary for the growth of the soul upon its infinite journey. This book goes far beyond any question of mere psychic research. It deals with the very foundation of the greater philosophies which endeavour to resolve the much greater question of what is man in his fundamental nature; is he a finite mortal being, or infinite immortal mind?”

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".
