Forgotten Nurse by Fern Shepard [Florence Stonebraker] (£103.00)Publisher: Robert Hale — 1970Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0709113943]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded. Leans slightly. The pages are somewhat tanned, if tight, and a little musty. Description: From the cover: “Brenda Gregory, a nurse, was driving a drugged woman patient to the hospital when their car crashed over a cliff, the patient died in flames which burned her beyond recognition, and Brenda, surviving, suffered injuries which required plastic surgery to her face and wiped out all memory of the past. Gradually she recovered in the confines of Stop-Over House, a convalescent home in a California beach, town, and even began nursing again there. Then suddenly her memory returned, and she found she had mistakenly been identified as the dead woman and was unable to prove her true identity. Furthermore, a certain quack psychiatrist who was interested in keeping her dead so she could not reveal what she knew about him, was willing to swear to the lie and declare her a mental case.”Notes: Jacket designed by Colin Andrews.

Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs [80]; Colour Photographs [100]; Black & White Drawings; Maps;

From the cover: “Chinese Pottery and Porcelain is a comprehensive survey of the development of ceramics from the Neolithic period to the present day. Assessing the roles pottery has played in each dynasty throughout the history of China, the author also discusses its enormous impact on the ceramic industries of the rest of the world, where Chinese porcelain has been admired and collected for centuries.

From the earliest earthenwares to the exotic burial figures of the Tang, from the classic forms and subtle glazes of the Song to the famous porcelains created especially for export or imperial tastes, the book draws upon the extensive collections of the British Museum for lavish illustration.

The author considers the purposes for which the ceramics of each period were made, how their production was organised, and what effect local conditions might have had on their final forms. Incorporating contemporary commentaries, recent archaeological evidence from kiln sites and the most up-to-date scientific analysis, the book provides a valuable new account of China’s ceramic history.”

Dough: Simple Contemporary Bread by Richard Bertinet (£42.00)Publisher: Kyle Cathie — 2008Binding: Paperback Signed by the Author.[ISBN: 1856267628]Condition: Very Good+. Includes a pristine in appearance DVD to the reverse of the upper wrapper. This is untested and unwarranted. Text complete, clean and tight. A nice copy.Description: Signed by the author on the title page — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “This award-winning book is an invaluable and beautiful guide on how to make simple contemporary bread. Richard Bertinet brings back the fun to breadmaking with his practical and easy approach so you will never want to buy a supermarket loaf again. He uses a method of ‘working’ the dough rather than ‘kneading’ it, allowing air and therefore lightness to prevail so you don’t create that well-known home-made brick bread.

The five chapters start with a basic bread — White, Olive Oil, Brown, Rye and Sweet — and from this ‘parent’ dough you can bake a vast variety of breads really easily. There are breads for every occasion — bake a pile of scones for tea, make pizza dough with the kids or friends, impress your guests with puff balls for supper, knock up a tantalising focaccia for an informal lunch or treat yourself to a honey and lavender loaf for breakfast — the choices are endless as once you’ve mastered a ‘parent’ dough you can experiment with your own favourite flavours.

Making any of these imaginative breads is bound to lighten your mood and brighten your meal.”

The Handyman In The Home: In 3 Volumes by Edited by Arthur W. Judge (£40.00)Publisher: Caxton Publishing Company — 1956Binding: Hardback Condition: Very Good. Pages lightly age-tanned otherwise a pleasant set.Description: September Reprint of the 2nd Edition. [First: 1930] Illustrated with black and white photographs & diagrams. From the preface: “As its title indicates, this work has been prepared expressly for the practical handyman desirous of undertaking a wide variety of jobs connected with the home, garden, garage and small workshop, including not only the domestic repairs and renovations that become necessary from time to time but also useful improvements and additions to the home and its contents. The keen home dweller, with a knowledge of the use of the simple tools and materials described in these volumes, can not only tackle most household repairs and additions expeditiously, but also avoid a good deal of expense. Apart from these considerations, there is always the satisfaction associated with the completion of a job that would otherwise have meant calling in someone else for the purpose. In addition to the extensive range of household repairs, fittings, furniture and other relevant items dealt with in this work, there are also a number of sections, including those on homecrafts, hobbies, sports accessories, outdoor constructions, etc., which will be found both useful and profitable to the handyman and housewife. Since many of the articles in these volumes deal with woodwork repairs and new constructions, it was considered desirable to include a comprehensive section, written by a well-known expert in such matters, on the subject of carpentry and woodworking tools, so that the reader who is not very well acquainted with the use of the latter can improve both his knowledge and experience.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 7".

Wisdom Of The Wild: How We Treat Our Planet by Anon. (£26.50)Publisher: Word Wide Fund for Nature — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Presentation plate to the first blank.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “There is no turning back. There never has been in history. Two hundred million American citizens are not going to leave the USA just to give back to the Indians the land that was stolen from them. The Inuit in Greenland are not about to climb into their kayaks to paddle back up the river of history. The wisdom with which “wild” peoples have animated their world cannot be fetched back at will. Nevertheless, there is a great deal to learn. This, for example: how, on the threshold of the third millennium, can we live once again in a finite world without consuming it? Pedagogues tell us that children need elements of the wild and disorder in order to become mentally sound adults. The child in its den is said to be subconsciously remembering the feeling of safety which our ancestors experienced in caves in the childhood of mankind. In Sweden, they let children fly back to the beginnings of humanity on the wings of their imagination, as it were. The wild as a tonic.

Henry David Thoreau’s suggestion that every major city should have some wildness in its vicinity (because otherwise its inhabitants would revert to the wild) is almost one hundred and fifty years old — and highly topical in view of the frustration which people feel in our concrete bunkers.

An end must be put to the dominance of the right angle. Protection programmes for spacious areas of wilderness have one purpose, among others, namely to preserve the charm of untouched nature. Real-life magic! Magic, or rather cheap tricks — that is what our oh-so-en-lightened world thought of the healing knowledge of the jungle Indians for such a long time. Until, at the sight of the burning rain forests, they realised that the best pharmacy in the world was going up in flames.

The awareness of its utility should not be the rescuers’ sole motive, however. If we only take up arms in defence of the earth where our immediate living conditions are threatened, we shall soon be sitting amidst the ruins of a barren planet. It is (unfortunately, some would say) not the case that when the trees die, man also dies immediately. There are no trees in the Mongolian steppes, but they are still not dead. The fact is, as an Indian chief once said: “After the deaths of plants and animals, you will die of the great loneliness in your hearts.” An appeal has been filed against this death sentence. This book contains a few passages from the defence counsel’s speech.”

The Complete Art of Printing and Enlarging by Dr. O. R. Croy (£13.00)Publisher: Focal Press — 1979Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0240447557]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges with a stain to the foot of the reverse and minor splits at the lower corners.Description: 15th Impression, 3rd Edition. [First Edition: 1950] Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “THIS IS THE FIFTEENTH PRINTING of O. R. Croy’s most popular book — which is in its third edition and something of a classic in many languages.

There have been few photographers blessed with such unusual gifts, who have amassed so much varied experience as O. R. Croy did, before he died in 1977.

As the son of a painter he grew up with an artist’s tools. At university he read photographic chemistry to become first a research worker and then a teacher in his own right. Yet somehow this still left him with time for his hobby, conjuring.

His interest in art, his scientific training, his ability to teach and his skilful hands made him a very exceptional sort of photographer. He continuously broke new ground both by using the camera as a tool for serving science and by creating unusual pictures just for the fun of it. His macro-photographic illustrations of natural history and his pictorial jokes in American and Continental magazines thrust into many fields and established new techniques.

Of his books on photography this one is the most methodical and detailed in covering that decisive last phase of photographic work — the finished print — which in the end speaks for every photographer, amateur and professional, beginner and advanced alike.

On how to make prints — ordinary prints and elaborately controlled prints, straightforward prints and very tricky prints—there is such a wealth of technical knowledge and personal experience that you will be unlikely to find it between the covers of any other single volume.

It is like an encyclopaedic cookery book — you can follow its recipes without ever having tried your hand at them before and you will find new ideas, novel methods and exciting possibilities suggested by them, however wide your own experience may be.

And how matter of fact, easily understood and readable it all is! Croy had the gift of really good teachers of never using more words than necessary and never forgetting any that matter. There is a message and a lesson in every sentence he writes. And there is practical evidence in every picture he shows.

A glance at his photographs and his diagrams is the best proof that he knows what he is talking about. They are all his own in this book.”

Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “Leslie Ash has been one of Britain’s most popular actresses for many years now, having made her big break in the film ‘Quadrophenia’. In the 1980s she starred in ‘Cat’s Eyes’, but it is as Deb in ‘Men Behaving Badly’ that she is best known. Yet this hugely successful career is only a part of the story. Her marriage to Lee Chapman has been turbulent, as they lived (and partied) the celebrity lifestyle to the full. Viewed as a ‘beaten’ spouse, a blonde bimbo and the ‘victim’ of plastic surgery, she has been pigeon-holed by many but understood by few. Now, in her long-awaited memoirs, she tells the whole story from the day she first appeared on TV at four to advertise Fairy Liquid, through to her battle to recover from the superbug that nearly killed her and how it transformed her life and made her understand what is really important. Leslie now campaigns for better hygiene in hospitals. This is an astonishing, moving and yet very funny memoir..”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼". Blue boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 342 pages.

Crop Production Under Plastic by Anon. (£9.50)Publisher: An Foras Taluntais — 1981Binding: Paperback Condition: Good. Wrappers a little faded and soiled otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Charts; Tables;

From the cover: “This book, based on the experience of both research and technician staff at Kinsealy Research Centre and of ACOT advisers, has been revised in response to the continuing demand for information on crop production under plastic. The book also summarises information available from experimental horticultural stations in the United Kingdom especially Efford, Luddington, Fairfield, Lee Valley, Rosewarne and Stockbridge House.

Although interest in crop production under plastic started slowly in Ireland, awareness of the possibilities that exist with this method of protected cropping is developing steadily. The increasing demand for fresh vegetables, the earliness and high quality of crops that can be produced and the cheapness and versatility of film compared with glass should result in further expansion of acreage.

Many of the early problems associated with crop production under plastic have now been overcome. Because of Ireland’s geographical situation gale force winds caused severe damage to some plastic houses in the past. Better designed structures and greater knowledge of suitable methods of cladding have now reduced the risk of severe crop loss to a very low level. There is also a greater awareness of the different growing conditions that exist under plastic compared with glass, — due largely to the air tightness of plastic. The different approach now being adopted to the production of many crops and to methods of pest and disease control is enabling growers to increase yields. At the present time, when it is difficult for young potential growers with skills but with limited capital or land to take up crop production, the use of plastic structures can provide a useful means of entry into commercial horticulture.

As in other sectors of horticulture methods of crop production are far from static. Research both here and abroad on structures and films with improved properties, on better methods of heating and ventilation and on more effective production techniques suggest that continuing progress is likely. In the meantime this publication provides growers and students with up-to-date information on techniques relating to crop production under plastic, the range of structures available, sources of supply and methods of erection.”

The Road to Shangri-La: My 60,000 Mile Quest For the Secrets of Rejuvenation by Ann Beveridge (£9.50)Publisher: Arlington Books — 1979Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0851404774]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Pages lightly age-tanned with slight offset to the blanks and pastedowns.Description: From the cover: “A lone woman journalist spent one year travelling 60,000 miles around the world in her quest to discover the secrets of rejuvenation.

It was the most amazing journey. Her route took her from the film star homes of Hollywood to the dank corridors of Europe’s oldest hospital deep in Soviet Russia; from a tropical island holiday paradise off the North East coast of Australia to the seedy, dusty backstreets of a Mexican border town; from Fiji to the Far East and Japan, as well as to some of the best equipped rejuvenation clinics in the world in Britain, Germany, Romania, Ecuador and Chile, to which patients pour annually in their thousands seeking the “youth cure”. She travelled to Hunza, a remote valley high in the Himalayas, whose inhabitants are some of the healthiest, long lived people in the world.

Ann Bcveridge interviewed in depth top doctors, scientists, plastic surgeons, psychiatrists and gerontologists. She reveals the multi-billion dollar world of the Youth Doctors and the celebrities they treat. She visits one of the world’s leading cosmetic surgeons and has recorded his informative answers on everything one could possibly want to know about the A to Z of cosmetic surgery.

Ann Beveridge’s extraordinary travels on the youth treasure trail have convinced her that we can turn back the clock and look years younger than our actual age. The Biblical three score years and ten is a myth. It is possible to prevent wrinkles, improve failing eyesight and memory retention, put the zest back into a jaded sex life and prevent many of the crippling and slowly degenerative diseases that make ageing such a misery for so many. At least one brilliant American scientist believes that some of us could almost certainly be around to see the year 3001!”

[ISBN: 9781849546669]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Light ding to the upper panel near the join. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “She was not expected to survive. She became the lady in the mask. In October 1999, Pam Warren’s life was turned on its head when she sustained horrific injuries in the Paddington rail crash. The casualties numbered thirty-one dead and over five hundred injured. Pam underwent scores of operations to rebuild her burnt body, and had to wear a plastic mask over her face for twenty-three hours a day over an eighteen-month period. Unwittingly, she became the public face of the disaster.

Over a decade on from that terrible event, From Behind the Mask charts the true inside story of Pam’s journey from victim to survivor and campaigner. Following the crash she became the UK’s leading spokesperson for improving rail safety, battling with rail management executives and the government — and winning. She was branded a troublemaker, but Pam and fellow members of the Paddington Survivors’ Group helped bring about great improvements on our railways. For years Pam remained focused on that campaign. Now, for the first time, she can tell us all what really happened. It is an inspirational story of determination and courage.”

Furthermore, the current attempts to solve our environmental problems through market-based incentives are as ineffective as a re-arrangement of the deckchairs on the Titanic. The culprit is the economic system itself, which acts against life and nature. The continuing transfer of resources from poor to rich countries, the burning of the rainforests, increasing third world poverty, spreading desertification, and the entirety of our environmental crisis can all be traced back directly to the nature of the economic system. We have a stark choice to make: ecology, or economics. We cannot have both. Read this book and find out why.”Notes: Size: C Format (8½" x 5¼"). 196 pages.

Children’s Reading Problems: Psychology and Education by Peter Bryant; Lynette Bradley; (£7.00)Publisher: Basil Blackwell — 1986Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0631136835]Condition: Good. An adequate reading copy only. A notably dog-eared copy but text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “A surprisingly large number of otherwise ‘normal’ children have problems learning to read, and these difficulties can produce disastrous consequences. Can we isolate the causes of reading problems? How can we best help backward readers? Peter Bryant and Lynette Bradley, in a trenchant and convincingly argued critique, show that many of the existing psychological explanations of reading problems are based on flawed research and on entirely inadequate evidence. Their own work has shown that analysing words into their constituent sounds is a skill of the utmost importance in learning to read, and one that many backward readers conspicuously lack — They argue that children normally become aware of rhyme and alliteration before they go to school and that this has a powerful influence on their eventual success in learning to read and to spell. What then should teachers do to help backward readers? Two techniques have proved particularly expedient, one involving plastic letters and the other a ‘multisensory’ method. Describing them in detail, the authors produce evidence for their success and, crucially, are able to offer a theoretical and psychological rationale for their effectiveness. Combining theory and practice in this unusual way, the book will be of great interest to psychologists and immensely helpful to teachers.”Notes: Size: C Format (8½" x 5¼"). 166 pages.

He claims proudly never to have hurt an innocent member of the public. His victims are the dregs of the criminal world: drug-dealers, pimps, thieves and armed robbers, to whom he shows no mercy. This is the amazing story of a man who has cheated death numerous times and lived to tell the tale..”Notes: Size: B Format (7¾" x 5¼"). 282 pages.
