[ISBN: 1854108700]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight. A nice copy.Description: From the cover: “John Beer writes regular columns for both the Daily Telegraph Weekend section and for Trout and Salmon, Britain’s leading game fishing magazine. There are, he writes, two sorts of book about trout fishing. One sort has a title like ‘How to Catch Very Big Trout’. This is the other sort of trout fishing book. In other words, it’s a book about fly-fishing that doesn’t take itself too seriously and will be rapturously welcomed by all those who fish for pleasure rather than for trophies.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

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".

The People's Representatives: Electoral Systems in the Asia-Pacific Region by Edited by Graham Hassall & Cheryl Saunders (£24.50)Publisher: St. Leonards: Allen & Unwin — 1997Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1864482583]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: From the cover: “The Asia-Pacific region is undergoing political transformation, loosely termed democratisation, at a pace unparalleled in history. This geographical grouping of nations with extremely disparate histories and cultures is also undergoing profound economic change.

The People’s Representatives surveys one defining aspect of political systems during a period of considerable stress. Twenty-three scholars from across the region examine the workings of the process by which competing interests gain a place at the bargaining table. In doing so, they indicate the points where traditional approaches to democratic governance are and are not meeting the demands placed upon them. They describe a moment in the development of new hybrid forms of political expression which test the capacity of current theories based on Western experience.

These studies place these forms of political expression within the context of their constitutional arrangements. They also suggest the extent to which countries in the Asia-Pacific region share common goals. They demonstrate how electoral systems play a significant role in reducing conflict in rapidly changing societies and thereby contribute to political stability and steadily expanding prosperity.

The nations of this dynamic region are playing a growing role in global politics. The People’s Representatives provides an understanding of their domestic politics and highlights some of the serious challenges that remain.”

Golf Doctor: Diagnosis, Explanation and Correction of Golfing Faults by John Jacobs with Dick Aultman (£24.00)Publisher: Stanley Paul & Co. — 1979Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0091346304]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Gently faded at the spine. Description: First British Edition. [First Published: Simon & Schuster, 1979, USA, as Curing Faultsfor Weekend Golfers]. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Drawings; Diagrams;

From the cover: “In Golf Doctor, the most accomplished teacher in the world of golf to-day sets out to help golfers help themselves. With the aid of superb two-colour drawings by Anthony Ravielli he succeeds admirably in explaining the fundamental reasons why golfers slice, hook and in general mis-hit the golf ball — why they can’t hit straight.

John Jacobs’ teaching applies to golfers of all standards, and by using the flight of the ball as incontrovertible evidence of how the club strikes it, John Jacobs forces the golfer back to the basic laws of impact, which are the only starting point for genuine and lasting improvement. Shots good and bad, he insists, are determined by what happens at impact. The best golfers make bad shots; however, because the ball’s flight alerts them to the true problem, they can usually correct the error quickly, before it becomes habitual. John Jacobs relentlessly insists that all aspiring golfers must first learn to understand the true objective of the swing in terms of club/ball impact before they can permanently improve.

By means of a most careful system of diagnosis, explanation and correction. Golf Doctor takes the reader through just about every golfing fault.

While the lessons in this book are designed to improve a player’s shots, John Jacobs emphasises that it is also especially important for the weekend golfer to understand how to handle on-course situations — for example, driving on holes with trouble on one side or another, playing in a cross-wind, or playing shots from tight lies. He has therefore included a most important section in which he explains how to avoid wasted strokes, how you can better control what your golf ball does and, thereby, better cope with the many situations that all golfers inevitably encounter on the course.

This is the most comprehensive book ever written on the subject of golf improvement. It is the most logical and, being so easy to follow, it is sure to help every golfer who studies its pages.”

Just Playing?: The Role and Status of Play in Early Childhood Education by Janet R. Moyles (£23.00)Publisher: Oxford University Press — 1991Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 033509564X]Condition: Very Good.Description: From the cover: “Just Playing explores why we should encourage, promote, value and initiate play in our classrooms, and why teachers should be part of it. Janet Moyles draws on research findings from several countries which provide further evidence for establishing the value of play. She focuses on children between 4 and 8, examining the principles of play in early childhood education, and indicates how these principles can be put into practice. She provides a full justification for including play in the early year’s curriculum and encourages teachers, through examples of children at play, to review their own thinking on the issues in the light of core curriculum pressures.”Notes: Size: 9" x 6". 190 pages.

The Complete Carp Angler by Andy Little (£20.50)Publisher: The Crowood Press — 1992Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1852236906]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Diagrams;

From the cover: “Carp fishing is addictive and 50,000 anglers hunt this extraordinary beast. In what is perhaps the most comprehensive book ever written on carp angling, Andy Little explains the immense magnetism surrounding the species which has driven some anglers to spend their entire lives in its pursuit. This is essentially a practical book with some general chapters on tackle, rigs and baits, and other more specialist chapters on the likes of winter fishing, conservation and continental carping.

Andy Little has enlisted the help of two further experts in their fields. Jan Wenczka, the best stalking carp angler this country has ever produced, has contributed a chapter on stalking, the eyeball-to-eyeball method of stalking carp, and Chris Ball, a traditionalist at heart who gets great enjoyment from using almost antique tackle, describes how to catch carp on the surface.

As well as the practical, there is plenty in this book for the armchair angler. The book is full of carp-fishing tales and anecdotes and the large number of photographs and line-drawings enliven the text and help clarify many of the points raised.

This is a book for today’s carp angler, bringing together in one volume every aspect of the sport. Andy Little is passionate about all types of carp fishing and is conscious of the responsibility that today’s angler has for the enjoyment of those to come. A recurring theme of the book is therefore where carp angling is going towards the end of the 20th century.

Whether you are a dedicated carp angler or someone new to the sport, pick up this book and prepare to be entertained, educated and inspired to catch another, perhaps even larger, prize.”

A Moment Towards the End of the Play by Timothy West (£18.00)Publisher: Nick Hern — 2001Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Signed by the Author.[ISBN: 1854596195]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: 2nd (corrected) printing. [First Published: 2001] Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Signed by the author on the title page — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium.

From the cover: “The actor Timothy West is held in high regard and great affection. He has played roles as diverse as Edward VII and Thomas Beecham, Falstaff and Uncle Vanya, Stalin and Churchill — and he became a household name in the TV series Brass. Now in his sixties, he has written his autobiography. In it he emerges as a born writer, a brilliant raconteur and a man deeply concerned about the health of his profession.

The account of his early years, replete with delightful stories, reads like a map of a now vanished landscape: box-office at Frinton, assistant stage manager at Newquay, weekly rep at Hull, and a two-year contract at Salisbury -while coping with a manic depressive first wife and their small child.

Then begins the steady climb towards the West End and film and television. He was in Abelard and Heloise with (a naked) Diana Rigg. He was in Exiles directed by Harold Pinter (1970). He joined the BBC Drama Repertory Company and the Royal Shakespeare Company. He joined Charles Marowitz at his experimental Open Space. And he joined Prospect Theatre Company and stayed with them from 1966-1981, touring incessantly, playing many of the plum Shakespearean roles and ending up running their seasons at the London Old Vie, whose low point was his failure to prevent Peter O’Toole notoriously self-destructing as Macbeth. Meanwhile Tim had met and married Prunella Scales and had two more children, Joe and Sam (now the actor, Samuel West).

Since then he has led the life of a busy freelance actor and director mixing stage and screen, radio and talking books, going wherever there is congenial work, occasionally with Prunella and recently with Sam (they played Falstaff and Prince Hal together in 1998).

But as he tells it, it all seems to happen a bit by accident, a bit by surprise. The modesty is engaging. The humour is irresistible…”

Indian Gaming & Tribal Sovereignty: The Casino Compromise by Steven Andrew Light & Kathryn R. L. Rand (£18.00)Publisher: University Press of Kansas — 2005Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0700614060]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: From the cover: “From Connecticut to California, Native American tribes have entered the gambling business, some making money and nearly all igniting controversy. The image of the “casino Indian” is everywhere. Some observers suspect corruption or criminal ties, or have doubts about tribal authenticity. Many tribes disagree, contending that Indian gaming has strengthened tribal governments and vastly improved the quality of reservation life for American Indians.

This book provides the clearest and most complete account to date of the laws and politics of Indian gaming. Steven Light and Kathryn Rand explain how it has become one of today’s most politically charged phenomena: at stake are a host of competing legal rights and political interests for tribal, state, and federal governments. As Indian gaming grows, policymakers struggle with balancing its economic and social costs and benefits.

Light and Rand emphasize that tribal sovereignty is the very rationale that allows Indian gaming to exist, even though U. S. law subjects that sovereignty to strict congressional authority and compromised it even further through the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act of 1988. Their book describes Indian gaming and explores today’s hottest political issues, from the Pequots to the Plains Indians, with examples that reflect a wide range of tribal experience: from hugely successful casinos to gambling halls with small markets and low grosses to tribes that chose not to pursue gaming. Throughout, they contend that tribal sovereignty is the key to understanding Indian gaming law and politics and guiding policy reform — and that Indian gaming even represents a unique opportunity for the emergence of tribal self-determination.

As political pressure on tribes to concede to state interests grows, this book offers a practical approach to policy reform with specific recommendations for tribal, federal, state, and local policymakers. Meticulously argued, Indian Gaming and Tribal Sovereignty provides an authoritative look at one of today’s most vexing issues, showing that it’s possible to establish a level playing field for all concerned while recognizing the measure of sovereignty — and fairness — to which American Indians are entitled.”

The Selected Work Of Tom Paine by Thomas Paine (£18.00)Publisher: The Bodley Head — 1948Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper edgeworn with several short, some tape-backed now, tears and a tear across the top corner of the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: From the cover: “FOLLOWING his biographical novel, Citizen Tom Paine, Howard Fast has edited the present selection from Paine’s writings. As might be expected, since they are his most famous and important works, ‘The Rights of Man’ and ‘The Age of Reason’ comprise the larger part of the book; in addition Mr. Fast has included ‘Common Sense,’ certain of ‘The Crisis Papers’ and the celebrated letter to Washington.

In his Introduction Mr. Fast writes : ‘The single most important clue to Paine’s writings is that they are dynamic. Before he ever wrote a word there were philosophers in plenty; in America, long before his time, such popular leaders as William Penn and Roger Williams had put the most advanced social and political theory of the age into practice. But there was a most important difference between the writing of those men and Paine’s writing — it may be summed up in this fashion:

‘They wrote abstractedly of the pattern of change; Paine wrote realistically of the method of change. They were philosophers who created political philosophy; Paine was a revolutionist who created a method for revolution. They moved men to thought; Paine moved men to thought and action. They dealt with theory and ideals; Paine dealt with the dynamics of one force playing against another’.

As this Selection admirably shows, Paine’s work is indeed dynamic ; it has an intensity and an inherent clear objectivity; much of it is surprisingly relevant to-day.”

Seapower Ashore: 200 Years of Royal Navy Operations on Land by Edited by Captain Peter Hore (£16.50)Publisher: Chatham Publishing — 2001Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1861761554]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs & maps. From the cover: “For most of the age when the Royal Navy dominated the world's oceans, it actually did much of its fighting ashore. From supporting the army during the Napoleonic Wars with its heavy guns, to shore bombardments such as at Acre in 1840 and Sweaborg during the Crimean War, to the landing of naval brigades of marines and bluejackets in Queen Victoria's myriad ‘little wars’, the nineteenth century saw the Royal Navy playing a major part in land warfare. This extended into the twentieth century, with the Royal Naval Division fighting on the Western Front in the First World War, the men of HMS Hood landing their ship's field gun in the ill-fated Norwegian Campaign of 1940, and, very recently, when the submarine HMS Splendid fired Britain's first Tomahawk cruise missiles at land targets in the former Yugoslavia in 1999. A group of eminent naval historians has been assembled to describe this vital element of the Royal Navy's role which has so often been overshadowed by the fleet actions of Nelson's time, and of the First and Second World Wars.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¾".

Then there was his nightmare at Maine Road, as the highest-paid footballer in the country who by his own confession wasn't worth two bob. There followed a period in the wilderness - playing abroad and with brief spells at Newcastle and Bristol Rovers - from which he was rescued by Norwich City. He spent two of his happiest years on the 'Village Green', culminating with a triumph m the 'Friendly' Milk Cup final of 1985.

The Illustrated Encyclopedia of World Cricket by Peter Arnold (£14.50)Publisher: W. H. Smith — 1986Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0863075975]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges with a slight ripple to the top corner of the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The Illustrated Encyclopaedia of World Cricket, with its lavish illustrations, many in colour, brings to life the whole panorama of the international game. The great matches and the great players are all vividly portrayed in words and pictures.

The largest section deals with Test cricket from its inception. Every series played is described, from the first in 1877 to the Australian visit to England in 1985 — from Charles Bannerman’s 165 not out which won the first-ever Test match for Australia, to the great batting of David Gower which won back the Ashes 108 years later.

The World Cup and other one-day international matches are also described in their various sections. Cricket history is reviewed from the mists of pre-Hambledon days, through professionalism, county cricket, and the emergence of the MCC to the rapid growth of one-day cricket in the 1960s.

A Gallery of Great Players highlights the careers of nearly 200 of the best cricketers from W. G. Grace to lan Botham, Viv Richards and Allan Border, with extended biographies and full career figures for 67 of them.

A comprehensive records section completes the book. Over 200,000 words and over 450 pictures, many in full colour, provide readers with hours of enjoyment: replaying the matches, reliving the careers of the players, comparing the records and feats of the immortals.

The book is a splendid read and an invaluable source of reference for all cricket fans.”

The Thinking Man's Guide to Golf: The Common-sense Way to Improve Your Game by Colin Montgomerie (£14.50)Publisher: Orion — 2003Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0752853724]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “Colin Montgomerie has always said that he could save an amateur golfer five or six shots a round if he were able to caddie for them; and that is what he sets out to achieve within the pages of his first instructional book. The seven-time European Tour number one is one of the world’s most accomplished golfers, and in The Thinking Man’s Guide to Golf he uses his own unique common-sense approach in order to shave shots from your score.

Monty sets out to give the reader an A — Z guide on how to improve your game. Starting with the basics, he goes on to talk about curing common faults, improving your short game, choosing the right equipment and all other aspects of the Royal & Ancient game, including:

  • The four key swing thoughts that have made Monty the golfer he is.
  • How to cure your slice and hook.
  • The best way to learn how to shape your shots.
  • Why using a belly putter maximises your chances of holing more putts.
  • How to hit the speciality shots that make the top Tour professionals so deadly around the greens.
  • How to get the most from your practice sessions.
  • Why improved fitness can help your game.
Most crucially, within the extended chapter dedicated to playing smart golf, Monty teaches you the tricks that will enable you to reduce your scores without changing your swing. He understands that the average amateur cannot spend as much time practising as the Tour professionals, which is why he puts so much emphasis on the best ways to improve your course maintenance. The advice is simple, and is presented in a clear and concise manner that golfers of all standards can learn from. What’s more, it has also been proven to work.”

Truancy by Barry Turner (£14.50)Publisher: Ward Lock Educational — 1974Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0706234049]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges. Previous owners' inscription to the pastedown scribbled out. Edges of the text block lightly tanned.Description: From the cover: “« I think school is boring — I don’t know why. Everybody knows school is terrible only I’m the only one who stays away ».

« I used to dread going in if we’d got English because I couldn’t do it. So I got ill and said I had the bellyache or toothache, and I got my Mum to write notes on days we had English ».

« School bored me silly. I used to feel superior to the other kids and to the teachers as well, because they talked to us as if we were children. I was playing games at school, and I wanted to be myself ».

These are just three of the thousands of children who are marked absent on the school register. What makes them special is that they are habitual truants and truancy has acquired the status of a social and educational crisis.

In Truancy the contributors break down the problem into three major areas. Maurice Tyerman, Paul Williams, Ken Fogelman and Ken Richardson try to pinpoint who the truants are and the extent of the problem. Dr Rhodes Boyson, Frank Harris, Jeremy Seabrook and Dr Jack Kahn analyse the main causes of truancy, examine individual cases and discuss some of the possible remedies. Finally Frank Coombes, Anna Sproule, Ruth Brandon and Julia McGuinness look at what is already being done to cope with the problem — the education welfare officer’s role, the local authority experiments in London and Liverpool and the emergence of the free school movement.”

They passed away in every imaginable way and one or two others besides. Being dedicated athletes every one, several of them died in mid-stroke. They took their leave while playing polo, squash, lawn tennis, golf, football, rowing, hunting, shooting, fishing, cycling, refereeing and umpiring. There is even one case recorded of death while bird-watching. Some of the very lucky ones died at the crease, like Andrew Ducat, or in the field, or even occasionally in the pavilion, like the gentleman to be found in these pages who “died in his flannels in the Bristol pavilion”. At least one old cricketer would perhaps have wished to die at the ground but never quite mastered the timing; we read A. W. Sheldon, who passed away while packing his bag for the Scarborough Festival.”Notes: Size: 9" x 5½". Pictorial boards. 1029 pages.

Louis: The Louis Armstrong Story by Max Jones; John Chilton; (£13.50)Publisher: Little, Brown & Co. — 1971Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0289702151]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper has a short, tidy, closed tear at the tail of the spine. Very light spotting to start and finish otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: First U.S. Edition. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “For nearly half a century Louis Armstrong’s name spelled magic to millions of people throughout the world. A titan who towered over the first fifty years of jazz history. Louis — or Satchmo in the affections of his vast international audiences — was not only the single most popular figure in American music; he was also the most influential of all jazzmen. Yet so powerful were his talents and his personality that he transcended jazz to influence the entire field of Western popular music; his expressive features, his short dynamic figure, his glittering trumpet tone, above all, perhaps, his abrasive voice, were familiar to film-goers, television-watchers and concert patrons from Toulouse to Tokyo.

Millions of words have been written or spoken about him — in books, magazines and newspapers, on radio, film and television. In spite of them all, strangely little is still really known about him. What was the truth about his background and early life? How did the ‘Ambassador of Jazz’ regard his role in music and society? What was he like off-stage — the private man away from his trumpet and the constant spotlights?

Louis answers these questions. Answers them more fully and frankly than any other book has ever done or will be able to do. Because for Louis himself it was the authorised biography, written with his complete co-operation and trust by a man who had been his close friend for thirty years. ‘Yeah, I’m gonna tell it all to Max Jones’, as he said on the David Frost show, ‘for the first time — the way it really was’.

The story of the way it really was began in the toughest of New Orleans’s black ghettoes. Born even poorer, growing up even more deprived than most of his black American contemporaries in the South, Louis Armstrong went further and lasted longer than any of them. In a career which spanned more than five decades of professional playing — first in his home town, then following the path taken by jazz as it moved to new capitals in Chicago, New York, the West Coast and finally to Europe — Louis played a decisive role in bringing American jazz to maturity and spreading it round the globe.”

A Moment Towards the End of the Play by Sherrie West (£13.00)Publisher: Nick Hern — 2001Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1854596195]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Edges of the text block lightly tanned otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs;

From the cover: “The actor Timothy West is held in high regard and great affection. He has played roles as diverse as Edward VII and Thomas Beecham, Falstaff and Uncle Vanya, Stalin and Churchill — and he became a household name in the TV series Brass. Now in his sixties, he has written his autobiography. In it he emerges as a born writer, a brilliant raconteur and a man deeply concerned about the health of his profession.

The account of his early years, replete with delightful stories, reads like a map of a now vanished landscape: box-office at Frinton, assistant stage manager at Newquay, weekly rep at Hull, and a two-year contract at Salisbury -while coping with a manic depressive first wife and their small child.

Then begins the steady climb towards the West End and film and television. He was in Abelard and Heloise with (a naked) Diana Rigg. He was in Exiles directed by Harold Pinter (1970). He joined the BBC Drama Repertory Company and the Royal Shakespeare Company. He joined Charles Marowitz at his experimental Open Space. And he joined Prospect Theatre Company and stayed with them from 1966-1981, touring incessantly, playing many of the plum Shakespearean roles and ending up running their seasons at the London Old Vie, whose low point was his failure to prevent Peter O’Toole notoriously self-destructing as Macbeth. Meanwhile Tim had met and married Prunella Scales and had two more children, Joe and Sam (now the actor, Samuel West).

Since then he has led the life of a busy freelance actor and director mixing stage and screen, radio and talking books, going wherever there is congenial work, occasionally with Prunella and recently with Sam (they played Falstaff and Prince Hal together in 1998).

But as he tells it, it all seems to happen a bit by accident, a bit by surprise. The modesty is engaging. The humour is irresistible…”

Colonel Parke of Virginia: "The Greatest Hector in the Town": A Biography by Helen Hill Miller (£13.00)Publisher: Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill — 1989Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0912697873]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Black & White Drawings;

From the cover: “Colonel Daniel Parke shocked his colonial Virginia neighbours by bringing home a mistress from England and flaunting her presence among the gentry.

He quarrelled with the Bishop of London’s commissary in Williamsburg, dragging his wife out of a pew in Bruton Parish Church.

In England he sought a seat in the House of Commons and was censured for election methods that were corrupt even by the standards of Restoration England.

He carried the news of Marlborough’s momentous victory at Blenheim back to London and Queen Anne gave him a gold locket encrusted with diamonds.

He sought to break up the smuggling trade in the Leeward Islands, while simultaneously playing fast and loose with other men’s wives. Eventually he was murdered by a mob.

In this first full-scale biography of the notorious Daniel Parke II of Virginia, Helen Hill Miller details the fascinating and sometimes appalling life of a reckless, ambitious man who cut a wide swath on several continents, left a will that scandalized his executors, and, paradoxically, numbered among his descendants some of the most distinguished and respected figures in Virginian and American life.

To tell Parke’s story, Miller combed through records in the United States, England, and Bavaria, turning up material that fills in crucial gaps in his life. Steeped in colonial American and English history, meticulously researched yet written clearly and gracefully for general readers, Colonel Parke of Virginia will henceforth be the standard life of a noteworthy historical figure.”

Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wraps.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “Atomic energy has been cloaked in secrecy by government, industry, and the military, but for many Americans the effects of radiation have been less than secret. Just ask the radium workers in Ottawa, Illinois, the “downwinders” of Utah, or unsuspecting veterans of the Gulf War. When told from the perspective of ordinary people, nuclear history takes on a much different tone from that of the tranquil voices of authority who always told us we had nothing to fear. In Learning to Glow, writers such as Scott Russell Sanders, Terry Tempest Williams, and Barbara Kingsolver reveal the psychic and emotional fallout of the Cold War and of subsequent developments in nuclear science. Here are stories of and by ordinary people who have suffered the consequences of the decisions made by those in power — stories that will challenge readers to re-examine their preconceptions about the way we deal with issues of nuclear arms and radioactive waste.”Notes: Size: 9" x 6". 317 pages.

But by the age of 28, he had booked himself into The Priory to treat his depression, close to self-destruction and unable to get his head round playing at all. Along the way he had been the centre-forward no one knew how to manage, the goal scorer nobody wanted to congratulate, a reluctant public figure in a tabloid society that saw his name make the front pages as often as the back, especially after he lashed out at his-then celebrity girlfriend, Ulrika Jonsson.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

From the introduction: “In presenting this collection of articles reprinted from Country Life and other publications, Raymond Brock has revived memories of bridge as it was played in the post-war years up to 1968. Harrison-Gray, universally known as ‘Gray’, was undoubtedly one of the greatest player-writers in the world of bridge and these articles display his skill in a style of writing with is both elegant and entertaining. Most of the hands are taken from actual play and have been analysed to bring out some practical instructive point, although instruction is not the primary object of articles to which were written for readers whose bridge standards were wide-ranging.”Notes: Foreword or introduction by Dorothy Shanahan & Andrew Robson.

Colonel Parke of Virginia: "The Greatest Hector in the Town": A Biography by Helen Hill Miller (£12.50)Publisher: Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill — 1989Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0912697873]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A couple of very small dings to the upper panel otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Black & White Drawings;

From the cover: “Colonel Daniel Parke shocked his colonial Virginia neighbours by bringing home a mistress from England and flaunting her presence among the gentry.

He quarrelled with the Bishop of London’s commissary in Williamsburg, dragging his wife out of a pew in Bruton Parish Church.

In England he sought a seat in the House of Commons and was censured for election methods that were corrupt even by the standards of Restoration England.

He carried the news of Marlborough’s momentous victory at Blenheim back to London and Queen Anne gave him a gold locket encrusted with diamonds.

He sought to break up the smuggling trade in the Leeward Islands, while simultaneously playing fast and loose with other men’s wives. Eventually he was murdered by a mob.

In this first full-scale biography of the notorious Daniel Parke II of Virginia, Helen Hill Miller details the fascinating and sometimes appalling life of a reckless, ambitious man who cut a wide swath on several continents, left a will that scandalized his executors, and, paradoxically, numbered among his descendants some of the most distinguished and respected figures in Virginian and American life.

To tell Parke’s story, Miller combed through records in the United States, England, and Bavaria, turning up material that fills in crucial gaps in his life. Steeped in colonial American and English history, meticulously researched yet written clearly and gracefully for general readers, Colonel Parke of Virginia will henceforth be the standard life of a noteworthy historical figure.”

The Handbook of Golf by Alex Hay (£12.50)Publisher: Pelham — 1985Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0720715407]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper.Description: From the cover: “Golf is played for enjoyment by people of all ages and ability, but without mastering its basic techniques many will become frustrated, disappointed with their performance, and will certainly not enjoy the game as much as they should. Although the skills of the top professionals are not given to all, there is no doubt that good coaching, and carefully and simply explained instructions, can do much to improve everyone’s game — The Handbook of Golf will do just that.

Alex Hay, with his many years of experience as player and coach, is the ideal teacher, and in this book he has produced a complete instruction manual not only for the beginner but also for all those players who still have problems with their game.

The most important technique, and the one from which all else follows, is the swing, and because its mastery is so central to the game it is on this that the author has concentrated his main teaching thrust. He has made a particularly close study of how today’s top players prepare and make the swing; he has had long conversations with many of them and describes their routines — routines that have brought them such consistent and worthwhile results.

The author also gives valuable instructions on applying and using spin, playing from slopes and out of bunkers, the short game and putting. He offers much sound advice on correcting faults, getting out of trouble, strategy, coping with the weather, practising and equipment. Golf has a long history, rules and etiquette, and there are various systems of scoring and handicapping. All these subjects are dealt with in sufficient detail to provide the reader with enough knowledge to increase his or her understanding and enjoyment of the game.

Alex Hay’s clear teaching and explanations are backed up with drawings, step-by-step diagrams and photographs in black and white and colour to make this Handbook the ideal reference for golfers of all abilities.”

A little bruised at head and tail with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper. Leans slightly.Description: From the cover: “The Greater German Reich has finally been nuked to a standstill, Chinese Maoists still revolt against Lizard rule, Japan has atomic weapons, the Soviets are playing devious games under President Molotov, and the US has gained a foothold in space. There’s a soap-operatic tangle of plot strands, with established characters both human and alien meeting in ever-changing combinations, much blackmail and smuggling of ginger (to Lizards, a powerfully addictive drug), and flashes of everyday job-hunting, friendship and romance. Big questions loom: which country attacked the colony ships and must pay heavily for it? Where is the one nuclear weapon captured by Jews 20 years ago? Will the Lizards cut their losses by reducing Earth to radioactive wasteland? And just what is the US doing so secretly in the asteroid belt? Little jokes appear amid the suspense — for example, the Warren Commission has nothing to do with Kennedy’s assassination but is a Lizard team investigating the shocking actions of this world’s US President Warren”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

DJ slightly ruffled at the edges. Pages lightly age-tanned, heavier so at the edges of the text block.Description: From the cover: “To the dismay of tall men the world over, Dudley Moore has risen to become an international film star, media magnet and Hollywood heart-throb without losing a trace of the lovable English charm that propelled him to stardom In the 1960s, Measuring in at a romantically challenged 5’ 2”, beautiful women have always wanted to ‘care’ for Dudley, and judging by the number who have fallen for — rather than over — him, he has never wanted to upset them by saying no. With an occasional Derek & Clive candidness, Dudley Moore has laid his heart open to acclaimed Hollywood insider Douglas Thompson as never before, revealing the angst, anxiety and restlessness beneath the diminutive exterior that we have come to know — perhaps misleadingly — as forever ‘cuddly Dudley’.Notes: Size: 8¾" x 8½".
