Glass: The Strange History of the Lyne Stephens Fortune by Jenifer Roberts (£19.50)Publisher: Templeton Press — 2003Binding: Paperback Signed by the Author.[ISBN: 0954558901]Condition: Very Good. Single reading crease to the spine. Leans slightly. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Signed by the author on the title page — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “When a Cornish servant girl gave birth to an illegitimate son in 1731, she little realised that he would become one of the richest industrialists in Europe. William Stephens, a man of genius, lived through the earthquake which destroyed Lisbon and became friends with the Marquis of Pombal, dictator of Portugal. Opening a glass factory in the village of Marinha Grande, he was granted a monopoly of glass supply and exemption from all taxes. Intelligent and charismatic, he charmed dictators, queens and princes into extending his privileges, allowing him to build up enormous wealth. Decades later, his massive fortune transformed a young cousin into the richest commoner in England. Soon it passed into the hands of a French ballerina who scandalised society by her sexual adventures, while the infamous Court of Chancery creamed off the wealth into the pockets of lawyers. This fascinating story, which spans two centuries, follows dramatic events in European history: a tale of earthquake, wars and revolution told through the lives of a strange and compelling mix of characters.”Notes: Size: C Format (8½" x 5¼"). 366 pages.

Sharpe's havoc : Richard Sharpe and the campaign in Northern Portugal, Spring 1809 by Bernard Cornwell (£14.00)Publisher: HarperCollins — 2003Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0007120109]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Leans very slightly.Description: Jacket illustration: The Battle of Fuentes d’Onoro, 1811. Illustrated by way of: Maps [1];

From the cover: “It is the spring of 1809 and a small British army is stationed in Lisbon when Marshal Soult begins the French invasion of northern Portugal. No one knows whether the British will fight or leave, but there is little choice for Lieutenant Richard Sharpe and his squad of riflemen, who are sent into the beleaguered city of Oporto to rescue a British mother and daughter who have chosen to stay rather than flee southwards. But what seems like a straightforward mission becomes tangled in betrayal when Kate Savage disappears.

Sharpe, with Sergeant Patrick Harper and a score of riflemen, is cut off in the city when the bridge over the river Douro is broken. They join forces with a group of fugitive Portuguese soldiers and try to fight their way back to the British lines, but their orders are overridden by a mysterious English officer, who instructs them to remain in northern Portugal. Colonel Christopher excels in high diplomacy and low cunning, and his activities lead Sharpe and his riflemen into treacherous danger.

While the French are consolidating their hold on the north of the country, Sir Arthur Wellesley, the future Duke of Wellington, arrives to take command in the south. He immediately mounts his own counter-attack in a brilliant campaign that will rout the French. Sharpe becomes the hunter instead of the hunted and seizes the chance to rescue the missing Kate Savage and pursue the man who thought to sacrifice Sharpe and his riflemen for his own ambition. Amidst the wreckage of a defeated army, in the storm lashed hills of the Portuguese frontier, Sharpe takes a terrible revenge.

Sharpe’s Havoc is a classic Sharpe story, a return to Portugal with Richard Sharpe in fighting form in the company of Sergeant Patrick Harper, Captain Hogan and Sharpe’s beloved Greenjackets.”

Devil or Saviours by George W. F. Hallgarten (£12.50)Publisher: Oswald Wolff — 1960Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good - in Good DJ. Unlaminated DJ a little edgeworn and faded with some loss at the head, tail and corners. Gently bruised at head & tail of spine and corners. Pages lightly age-tanned. Top corner of the first blank clipped.Description: A history of dictatorship since 600 B.C. From the cover: “The author provides in this book the key to the understanding of one of the most important social and political phenomena: Dictatorship. In the author’s words, the strange figures who are potential dictators are as numerous as bacteria. Devils or Saviours shows the conditions in which such figures succeeded in establishing themselves on the historical stage, bringing tragedy and disaster in their wake. Only an historian of Hallgarten’s rank could undertake to write, in a single and not too voluminous book, the entire history of dictatorship from the old Greeks up to present times. Despite the exemplary conciseness of his style, a clear picture emerges of the historical and especially the social background of all the significant dictatorships since 600 B.C.; and the individual dictators and their methods are brought into sharp focus.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

Incredible Africa by Willard Price (£11.50)Publisher: Heinemann — 1961Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with heavier fading to the spine. Edges of the textblock heavily tanned. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “Incredible Africa is the fascinating record of a round-the-continent journey made by Willard Price, well known as one of the most experienced and stimulating of contemporary travel-writers. It is also a timely and lively investigation of the political and social changes which are transforming parts of Africa at lightning pace.

The book is divided into two parts: the text and a section containing ninety-three superb photographs. Together they illustrate with startling clarity the extreme contrasts between the ancient and modern ways of life which exist side by side all over Africa and of which Willard Price personally encountered many exciting and entertaining examples. He and his wife were not content to travel from airport to luxury hotel and back again (although there are some valuable hints for tourists in this book); they deliberately organised their own ‘poor man’s safari’ to the Mountains of the Moon, at once home of the tallest and the smallest people in the world, and made the river journey by canoe to Dr. Albert Schweitzer’s mission. They secured interviews with the leaders of some of the newly independent nations; they visited the principal reserves where Africa’s seething wild life still battles for existence and had some thrilling encounters with large animals; and they penetrated parts of little-known Portuguese Africa.

As he travels from Morocco to South Africa, from uneasy Kenya to boisterous Ghana, Willard Price proves over and over again that in Africa everything is much bigger than life-size. Under the Sahara there is a recently discovered lake larger than France and nearby oil deposits are thought to be the largest in the world. Facts such as these make Incredible Africa a treasury of knowledge and are used by the author to build up an impressive view of the future of the most varied of the world’s continents.”

Princess: The Autobiography Of The Dowager Maharani Of Gwalior by Vijayaraje Scindia; Manohar Malgonkar; (£11.50)Publisher: Century — 1985Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0712610359]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. Leans slightly.Description: Reprint. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Vijayaraje Scindia, the Dowager Maharani of Gwalior, is one of India’s most popular political leaders, a princess whose appeal to the masses amazes both her admirers and her critics. For Vijayaraje grew up in a world of feudal privilege and married one of the richest men in India, a high-ranking Maharaja who ruled Gwalior, a kingdom the size of Portugal with over four million subjects. As his wife she played hostess to kings, viceroys and fellow princes, entertaining them to cocktails in the glittering durbar hall and to banquets that ended with a silver train of brandy and cigars circling the table top. It was a life of great splendour, spent in a variety of palaces — Jaivilas was so large it was quicker to go by car from one wing to the other — but the splendour was cut short by Independence, which marked the end of the supremacy of the Indian princes. Vijayaraje could have withdrawn to some safe tax haven but she chose instead to involve herself in politics, joining first the Congress party and then, when she became disillusioned, the opposition. It was a brave move that brought down on her the wrath of the ruling elite in the form of tax raids, fines, threats of confiscation, and even, during the Emergency, a term of imprisonment — a sentence shared with fellow Maharani, Gayatri Devi of Jaipur. Supported by the loyalty of her husband’s subjects, who kept faith with her, Vijayaraje rose serenely above her troubles. Her only son, however, did not, and today, for the first time in three centuries, the Scindias are a house divided. In Princess Vijayaraje Scindia tells her own remarkable story. She has always refused to accept high office, but there is no doubt that her influence is immense. For the striking figure in an immaculate, snow-white sari is at home not only among the politically sophisticated, but among the people to whom she seems an image of Mother India.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

Sharpe's Escape: Richard Sharpe and the Bussaco Campaign 1810 by Bernard Cornwell (£11.50)Publisher: London: HarperCollinsPublishers — 2004Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0007120133]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Maps;

From the cover: “It is 1810 and the French are making yet another attempt to invade Portugal. Facing them is a wasted land, stripped of food by Wellington’s orders, and Captain Richard Sharpe. But Sharpe is in trouble. His job as Captain of the Light Company is under threat and he has made a new enemy, a Portuguese criminal known as Ferragus. Sharpe, discarded by his regiment, wages a private war against Ferragus — a war fought through the burning, pillaged streets of Coimbra, Portugal’s ancient university city.

Sharpe’s enemies are numerous but on his side he has Sergeant Patrick Harper, the Portuguese officer Jorge Vincent and a prickly English governess, whose first aim is to clean up Sharpe’s language.

Sharpe’s Escape begins on the great, gaunt ridge of Bussaco where a joint British and Portuguese army meets the overwhelming strength of Marshall Massena’s crack troops. It finishes at Torres Vedras where the French hopes of occupying Portugal quickly die. This is a classic Sharpe novel, with Richard Sharpe in his finest form reunited with Patrick Harper, and facing enemies on every side.”

The Autobiography: My Manchester United Years by Sir Bobby Charlton (£10.50)Publisher: Headline — 2007Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0755316193]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “In this first part of Sir Bobby’s remarkable autobiography he describes his early life growing up in a tight-knit mining community in the north-east of England and charts his extraordinary career at Manchester United. Charlton is United through and through. A member of the original ‘Busby Babes’, Sir Bobby devoted his career to the club. He won everything the game had to offer, played alongside some of the greats such as Best and Law and, on a snow-covered runway in Munich in February 1958, was involved in arguably the most shocking football tragedy of all time. With his beloved Reds, Charlton tasted FA Cup victory in the emotional final of 1963, won three First Division championships and in 1968 reached the pinnacle of club success, by defeating Benfica in the European Cup final. Inevitably, such highs were balanced with no less dramatic lows — the 1957 European Cup semi-final, the highly charged 1958 FA Cup loss only weeks after Munich, and the 1969 European Cup defeat by Milan.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Europe in the Seventeenth Century by David Maland (£9.50)Publisher: Macmillan — 1968Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Good - in Good DJ. Edges of DJ somewhat ruffled, creased at the head of the upper panel with a little fraying at the head, tail and corners. Gently bruised at head & tail of spine and corners. Text bright and tight.Description: Later printing [1966]. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “IN RECENT YEARS Seventeenth-Century European history has attracted many scholars and much controversy. It has been particularly hard for the student to keep abreast of the latest research, so this clearly written and thoroughly comprehensive text book will meet a real need for advanced and university students.

The emphasis is not exclusively on commonplace political history; the author explains difficulties, clarifies the meaning of events and continually shows their interre lation in a fresh and efficient way. Thought, literature, art, architecture, science and eco nomics are all given their vital place, especi ally in the long opening chapter, which outlines the main influences running below the surface of a tumultuous century.

The book covers the period from the Peace of Augsburg to the death of Louis XIV. The chapter on the Thirty Years War provides a steady guide through the often bewildering detail of religio-political controversy and the extreme intricacy of international relations, dynastic and personal ambitions. Treatment of the Baltic countries i« thorough and, by going into more detail than is usual, the stories of Poland, Brandenburg, Sweden and smaller states become intelligible and less of an unwar ranted appendage.

Clear maps and the extensive use of footnotes for cross-reference keep the text as short and tight as possible. It is easy to study sectionally; a comprehensive bibliogra phy with critical commentary, and a full index are intended to make reference as simple and speedy as possible.”

Mediaeval Age: Specimens of European Poetry from the Ninth to the Fifteenth Century by Angel Flores (£9.50)Publisher: Phoenix House — 1965Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with untidy tears to both panels. Leans. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Previous owners' inscription to the half-title page. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise. Description: First British Edition. [First Published: Dell USA, 1963]

From the cover: “We do not know, what it would cost you to buy all the books in which English versions of the works presented in this volume appear. In any case you could not do so because a fair proportion of them are not in print in any English translation and a smaller number have not to our knowledge been translated before.

This is a selection of the flower of European mediaeval poetic art, and the word ‘European’ has been interpreted in the widest sense. First of all it is wide in the social sense because alongside the love poems and epics of the aristocracy there are to be found folk-tales, animal fables and other earthy items of peasant entertainment. It is comprehensive chronologically because the date of composition of these works ranges from about a. d. 600 to 1500, and this will comfortably embrace the extreme temporal limits of the Middle Ages by anyone’s definition. Most of all it is comprehensive in terms of the country and the language in which the work first appeared. Herein lies its supreme value. Not only does it demonstrate the unity of European poetic art but it puts at the disposal of the ordinary reader material which he could otherwise turn up only in books which are highly specialized, not easily accessible, and usually somewhat expensive.

Here are items from the far corners of Europe, from Sicily and Andalusia in the south, from Scandinavia in the north and from Ireland and Portugal in the west to Kiev in the east, not forgetting the middle where the work of troubadour and minne-singer is amply represented alongside the comic beast-epic of the Low Countries. This is not exclusively the compilation of continental Europe because the outlying islands of Ireland and Britain are also represented. The only’ major literary language omitted from the collection is English because all the English works of equal status with those included are easily accessible in such collections as Everyman’s Library.

Viewed academically the function of this book is to provide the student of Old and Middle English literature with the text of comparable works from foreign countries rendered into modern English. Viewed artistically this is probably the most enjoyable gathering of old poetry and easily the most original one to have appeared in English for some generations. The selection, arrangement and some of the translation is the work of Professor Angel Flores of Queen’s College, New York; the whole boasts the minimum of solemn introductory matter and is totally uncluttered by footnotes and similar dusty paraphernalia.”

My Autobiography: An Englishman Abroad by Bobby Robson with Bob Harris (£9.50)Publisher: Macmillan — 1998Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 033373484X]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Leans slightly. Top edge of the text block tanned. Security tag fixed to the rear pastedown. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs;

From the cover: “BOBBY ROBSON has never taken an easy job in his life and yet he has emerged as one of the most successful managers in the history of the game, proving himself at domestic and international level before moving on to win trophies and titles in three different countries. As he returns to his footballing roots, Robson is better placed than anyone to tell the inside story of the world game and the people who run it.

The son of a miner, Robson has always battled against the odds — in football and in life — and come through triumphant. His playing days, with Fulham and West Bromwich Albion, earned him twenty England caps and, after an inauspicious start, his managerial career flourished at Ipswich where he won both the FA Cup and the UEFA Cup.

His time as England manager ended in near-glory when the 1990 World Cup team made it through to the semi-finals, only to lose out, dramatically, on penalties. Here he tells for the first time of his tumultuous eight years in football’s hottest seat and of his time with the likes of Gascoigne and Lineker. He reflects on the national side’s fortunes since his departure and offers insightful prognoses for the future.

Robson has become an impressive presence on the international football stage, with Cup-winning stints in Holland, Portugal and Spain, where perhaps his hardest job of all was taking over from the legendary Johan Cruyff. A year fraught with political infighting, as well as Robson’s acquisition of Ronaldo, the most expensive footballer.”

Portugal by Martha De La Cal (£9.50)Publisher: Collins — 1988Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0004109732]Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: From the cover: “In spite of its relatively small size, Portugal could be several different countries in one. It has a popular and attractive coast, an undiscovered, sparsely populated hinterland and modern European cities that contrast with the many typically Portuguese and medieval towns. In this comprehensive and practical guide, Martha de la Cal, who has lived and worked in Portugal for many years, gives a real insider’s view of the country and its people.

Contents include

• A fascinating and vivid account of Portugal’s history, art and architecture and also a revealing look at Portugal today.

• The gazetteer covers the whole country in detail and in doing so opens up such previously ignored areas as the beautiful and mountainous north and the historic central region of Estremadura.

• Personal recommendations throughout for hotels, including pousadas, to suit all budgets and for restaurants that serve local and regional specialities and authentic Portuguese food.

• Useful advice on such matters as language, customs and courtesies, transport, shopping and handicrafts, plus many more.”

Illustrated with black and white photographs & maps. From the cover: “Travel writer Tony Ferrottet decided to retrace the steps of the world’s first tourists, the Ancient Romans, travelling from Rome, through to Greece, Turkey and Egypt. Taking his pregnant girlfriend with him, he misguidedly promised ‘No terror, no squalor’. Soon they were in Pompeii searching for the brothel, inspecting a rather feeble replica wooden horse at Troy and avoiding ‘Pyramidiots’ in Egypt. And it gradually became clear that, when it comes to Mediterranean holidays, not a lot has changed in two thousand years.”Notes: Size: B Format (7¾" x 5¼"). 418 pages.
