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".

Television and Radio: Everybody's Soapbox by Bruce Parker; Nigel Farrell; (£14.50)Publisher: Blandford Press — 1983Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0713713062]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Top edges of the dust wrapper slightly ruffled. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with cartoons. From the cover: “The chance to appear on a radio or television programme is the opportunity of a lifetime to speak to a mass audience. Yet how many people appreciate the value of such an offer, or really know how to make the most of it? With the expansion of broadcasting in the 1980s there will be more air time available to members of the public in scores of programmes, particularly those put out by regional and local television and radio stations. Nearly everyone has something to gain by a chance to appear on the air: the father searching for his teenage daughter, the secretary of the local drama group which is putting on an unusual play, the harassed mother seeking action about the damp walls of her council house, or the managing director who wants a little publicity for his firm’s award-winning product. Everybody’s Soapbox explains in an entertaining way not only how to use your time on the air effectively but how to go about obtaining it in the first place. The authors take a detailed and often humorous look into what happens behind the scenes of broadcasting. Some of the pitfalls are described, including the ones to avoid when being interviewed. Don Osmond’s cartoons complement the light-hearted but informative text. Much advice is provided, particularly for those who find themselves on the air for the first time. Radio and television techniques are revealed and the jargon is made clear. There is guidance on how to handle an interview and how best to present yourself. You can also find out the right way to deal with the film crew which may arrive at your house.”Notes: Illustrated by Don Osmond. Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

How to Cheat at Gardening by Hazel Evans (£9.50)Publisher: Ebury Press — 1971Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0852230125]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper which is slightly tanned. Price Clipped. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Drawings;

From the cover: “There are two kinds of gardeners: the ‘Dig-a-double-trench’ and ‘Aren’t-my-dahlias-lovely’ brigade — and the rest of us. For let’s face it, doing the garden is either your life-long relaxation and hobby (in which case you won’t want to read this book), or just another household chore which you are shamed into tackling when the view from your back window begins to look like something from a bad science fiction film.

If you hate gardening and prefer to spend your weekends sailing, playing golf, visiting friends, or simply blissfully doing nothing at all — then this is the book for you.

Hazel Evans shows you in a light-hearted but practical way how to cheat. How to make your particular patch of ground look good and cared for, how to keep it under, but all done with the absolute minimum of effort.

She includes short cuts to success for gardens that are being started from scratch as well as for older ones, and goes on to describe the latest aids to easy gardening — both mechanical (throw away that spade!) and scientific (how to win the war on weeds and bugs). Other topics included in this handbook for gardening cheats are: covering up with climbers and hedges; vegetable gardens; garden design ideas and portable gardens.

The author has in her time owned everything from a strip 8ft by loft to a market garden. She has come up the gardening hard way and she now passes on her experience so that for you, too, garden work can become ‘a simply splendid, relaxing pastime in spring and summer when the mood takes over, and a little fresh air is indicated’.”

First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges, a little faded.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs & line drawings.

It is illustrated with authentic engravings from the scientific and popular press of the period, and presents contemporary accounts of the latest mechanical and electrical wonders. ‘The Telephone’, for example (an apparatus for the electrical transmission of distinctly articulate sounds to great distance), is here shown in elegantly engraved illustrations, with authoritative notes on the use of the instrument. There is also news of the latest trends in Photography (a portable 5 Ib. Hand Camera, and Sensitive Material on Rollers) and there is even talk of the remarkable shape of things to come, like the Submarine Railway Between France and England, and the new experiments in Aerial Locomotion. There are also details of the Patent Impulsoria and the Aerophon, not to mention the Pedal Zephyrion and a project for a Machine for Sensational Emotions. No aspect of daily life is neglected; also included are the Combined Chest Expander and Skirt Supporter, and Mr Raimes’ Apparatus for the Toilet. The review is completed with an outline of a novel theory: Aerial Propulsion by Explosion or Impulse — an entirely new concept, utilizing dynamite as fuel, for crossing the Atlantic in as little as a Few Hours.”Notes: Size: 7¼" x 8¾".
