The Oil Engine Manual by D. S. D. [Denys Stephen Dodsley] Williams (£69.00)Publisher: Temple Press — 1956Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with nicks at the spine ends and a short, triangular, crease and tear to the foot of the upper panel. Tanning to the blanks. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise. Description: 6th edition, 1st printing, [First Published: 1939] Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Graphs [1 Fold-Out]; Diagrams; Tables; Period Advertisements;

From the cover: “The first edition of this Manual appeared some 16 years ago and later editions were widely used as books of instruction during the Second World War. Considerable developments in engine design and a variety of applications took place during the period covered by the preceding five editions. In more recent years, however, the pace has, far from slackening, actually accelerated, so that the fundamental background of oil engine design has undergone considerable changes. The number of manufacturers has varied, whilst their power ranges have been made more extensive, even though the actual number of engine models has decreased somewhat through rationalization.

This new edition of “The Oil Engine” Manual has been very largely rewritten to cover changes occurring during the past five years. It is now fully up-to-date, as is only possible when the work is produced in the office of a journal dealing with the subject on a full time and highly specialized basis.

Chapters in the first part of the Manual give the background for engine design (of various forms) for all duties other than marine applications. In the second part, leading details are given of all the current makes of oil engine constructed in the United Kingdom, again for all purposes other than ship and boat duties. The third and final part is a technical appendix, which will be found useful, not only for those concerned with engine manufacture, but for those engaged in the use of such prime movers. Students also will find the whole book of permanent value to them in their work relating to this type of heat engine.”

From the cover: “This is the third in the series of photographic records of the Somerset & Dorset Railway by Alan Hammond. As with his previous books, the emphasis is on images of railwaymen and women working on the line. Most of the photographs come from private collections and provide a fascinating insight into the day-today running of this much-loved line.

There are anecdotes, too. Eight personal memories enhance the story, with many a tale from Bath, Wincanton, Sturminster Newton, Blandford and Branksome, among others. There is the tragic story of how a ganger fell to his death from a railway trolley at Kilver Street Viaduct, and the more amusing episode when lumps of coal lobbed off an engine for the crossing-keeper at Lamyatt Road broke down his front door. There is a personal memory of idyllic childhood visits to the signalbox at Midford and a wartime account of coming under fire from a German plane at Highbridge. The stories and photographs together provide a heart-warming recollection of this lost world.

The foreword has been written by the railway entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson, a modern-day enthusiast and character to match those who worked on the old S&D.”

Life On the Railway by John Owen (£39.00)Publisher: Bath: Millstream Books — 1989Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0948975180]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little sunned. Leans very slightly. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Diagrams; Tables; Plans;

From the cover: “Too many railway histories concentrate on locomotives, with perhaps an occasional brief mention of the engine drivers or firemen. Too often the men and women who worked behind the scenes are forgotten — the fitters, the tube blowers, the shunters, the booking clerks, the refreshment room staff, without whom the railways could not have functioned. This book, while not neglecting the locomotive scene, sets out principally to describe how one small part of Britain’s railway network operated, and what life was like for all the employees on the railway.

Bath Green Park station and motive power depot provide the basis for the story though this is not just another Somerset & Dorset book. The S&D plays its part but in partnership with the Midland Railway’s Mangotsfield and Bath Branch, a relatively little known but equally hardworking component of the railway scene in Bath.

In this essentially human tale, we meet 14 year old call boys whose duties included ‘knocking up’ train crews in the small hours of the morning, and foreman Tom Rudd, famous for drinking his tea straight from the pot. We hear of train workings known as The Fish and Chip Special, The Ghost Train and The Rabbits, and of goose plucking in Weston signal box. Here is the story of the ordinary working people of the railways, the story of a way of life which has all but disappeared.”

Celebration of the Somerset and Dorset Railway by Alan Hammond (£28.00)Publisher: Bath: Millstream Books — 2006Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0948975768]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: A limited printing of 2,500 copies of which this is number 1128. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Maps [1];

From the cover: “Sunday 6th March 1966 was the saddest day in the history of the Somerset & Dorset Railway — the day when the Beeching axe fell and the final passenger trains powered their way over the Mendip Hills and across the Somerset Levels.

Forty years on, there is life again. No fewer than four separate organisations are working hard to preserve all that this cross-country branch stood for. And thanks to the continuing efforts of Alan Hammond to record the memories and images of those who worked on the line, more people than ever have discovered the magic of the S&D. This splendid fifth album of photographs and stories brings alive again what has made the railway so special for so many and provides a most fitting 40th anniversary celebration.

This was truly a family line, both for the many generations of different families who gave their working lives to it and in the spirit of unity which pervaded all its operations. It is that spirit which shines out from the wonderfully evocative photographs in the book.

Nowhere is that spirit of the S&D better displayed than in the accounts of the six young firemen as they learnt the joys and trials of coaxing their locomotives over some of the toughest terrain and in so doing established long-lasting friendships with many a driver.

Forty years on, too, we celebrate England’s great World Cup football triumph and it is fitting that one of the heroes of 1966, Alan Ball, should write the delightful foreword for this Celebration.”

Fleming Of Honister by Graham Sutton (£23.00)Publisher: London: Hodder & Stoughton — 1953Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with tears and loss to the spine ends and corners. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Price Clipped. Pages lightly age-tanned. Description: From the cover: “This sterling novel is set in the Cumberland of the 1870’s. At thirty-six, John Fleming of Borrowdale throws up a job in which he is a master-craftsman to join Tom Burland. Resourceful, sturdy, honest as the fells that bred him, John has two loyalties : first to Joanna, his young sister, whom he has loved from babyhood with a father’s devotion ; second to Burland and the railway which he helps him to build.

John is a good friend and a good hater. His feud against his gipsy kinsman, Red Nugent, flames through the story; and it is paralleled by a struggle less personal but no less grim, waged in the high fells and in Eden valley by the railway men against Nature. These two themes culminate in the triumph of the new line, the destruction of Nugent, and the happiness of young Joanna.

Looking back through the years, John tells the tale in his own fashion : with humour, with shrewd philosophy, and with frankness from which emerges a personality as lovable as it is tough.”

The Wirral by Alan Brack (£20.50)Publisher: Phillimore & Co. — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0850336791]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the head of the spine. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Reprint with amendments. [First Edition: 1980] Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the flap: “The Wirral was already an old-established administrative unit at the time of Domesday Book. This book is concerned with all those aspects of the Wirral, whether of history, architecture or landscape, that give the peninsula its individuality. Well known as a writer on the locality, Alan Brack starts with the immense advantage of having lived there nearly all his life. His book is at once scholarly, readable and entertaining. He has studiously avoided the highly romanticised view which has persisted in other accounts of the area and his opening chapter, ‘A Place Apart’, sets the tone for the whole book. There are sections on Birkenhead and Wallasey and on Bebington and Bromborough. An authoritative account of the establishment of Ellesmere Port is followed by a chapter on the Urbanised Districts of Hoylake, Neston and Heswall, on the Urbanised, Unexpected and Purpose-built villages, on the open spaces and on crossing the Mersey. The description of Port Sunlight, with its vignette of Lord Leverhulme, is especially well-informed. Human interest relieves a generally topographical approach through the appearance in the local context of the many notable men and women who have been associated with the Wirral.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

From the introduction: “We hear much of ‘wonders’ in these days, surrounded as we are by man-made marvels, all too few of which are properly appraised by most of us. And despite the enormous educational and cultural advances of the past half century there are many of Nature’s wonders and beauties that lack a full and proper appreciation. The aim of The World’s Wonders is to serve as an eye-opener — to bring vividly before readers the wonder and majesty and splendour of Nature’s achievements, and to indicate what man himself has done in various fields of engineering and invention.”

Odd Corners of the Great Western Railway from the Days of Steam by Kevin Robertson (£19.00)Publisher: Sutton Publishing — 1999Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 075091940X]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Black & White Drawings; Diagrams; Maps; Tables;

From the cover: “In his new book Kevin Robertson has brought together a fascinating collection of previously unpublished facts and photographs to throw new light on the long history of the Great Western Railway. He has drawn on hitherto inaccessible sources and has chosen to illustrate and record many unusual aspects of the GWR which have been overlooked in other works devoted to this famous company.

The book covers subjects as diverse as experimental signal design, station furniture, the petrol railcar, the 1930s camping coach and even the GWR’s accident record -hitherto considered exemplary. It illustrates the stations and the staff and above all the locomotives and the roiling stock upon which the high reputation of the company depended.

Odd Corners of the GWR will be entertaining and informative reading for everyone who has a sense of railway history. It will be especially valuable for enthusiasts who are keen to learn more about the background to the success of the GWR during the great age of British railways.”

Great Railway Journeys of the World: An Encyclopedia of the World's Best Locomotive Journeys by Max Wade-Matthews (£18.50)Publisher: London: Lorenz — 1998Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper.

Laminate is lifting slightly at the bottom corner of the upper panel otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “There are few finer experiences than the thrill of a classic railway journey. This remains as true today as it was in 1825, when Stephenson’s Rocket first steamed its way from Stockton to Darlington.

Great Railway Journeys of the World describes 95 outstanding railway journeys, experienced first-hand by a team of expert writers. Some of the journeys are quite short but steeped in history, notably the railway down India’s once perilous Khyber Pass; and the narrow-gauge line that carried gold prospectors from the port of Skagway to Whitehorse, in the Yukon. Others, such as the transcontinental lines of Australia and Canada, the Hastern and Oriental Express from Singapore to Bangkok, and the Red Arrow’s journey from Brussels to Hong Kong, cover thousands of kilometres.

For luxury and romance there is nothing to match the Orient Express, the Blue Train from Cape Town to Pretoria, or the wonderfully nostalgic “Palace on Wheels” in Rajasthan; while the many extraordinary feats of engineering described include the Trans-Siberian Railway from Moscow to Vladivostock, the Trans-Ancline Railway in Chile with its 26 tunnels in 70 km (44 miles), and the Brazilian line from Santos where the carriages are still hoisted up the Serro do Mar on a rope. For lovers of the latest and fastest trains, there is the high-speed line from Tokyo to Osaka, or London to Bern by Furostar and TGV — while on many other journeys the trains are still hauled, on gauges broad and narrow, by lovingly preserved steam locomotives.

Long or short, modern or historic, broad-gauge or narrow, each of the journeys described in Great Railway Journeys of the World will whet the appetites of rail enthusiasts everywhere. Packed with information — historical, geographical and technical — and with over 700 photographs of the world’s most remarkable trains, and stunning scenery, this monumental book bears eloquent witness to the enduring romance of rail travel.”

Divided into three sections, the book is organized chronologically, documenting developments and innovations in a concise and authoritative text.

Part One — The Birth of the Railways charts the very beginnings of locomotive design up to 1900. Starting with the British locomotives of the 1830s and the Battle of the Gauges, we move on to the early North American freight trains and the great building schools across the world.

Part Two — The Golden Age of Steam details the early British innovations in steam; the American Mikados, Shays, Switchers and Record Breakers; the early Canadian freight trains; European mountain power; and the enduring steam locomotives of India and Latin America — many of which were in use until recently.

Part Three — The 1950s to the Present Day explains the crossover from steam to diesel and electric. It looks at how these changes transformed the locomotive throughout the world into a superior passenger and freight pulling power, making it the supreme form of transport. Bringing us to the present day, this last section highlights the latest developments in world-class locomotive technology, including Europe’s Eurostar and the Japanese bullet train.

Written by world experts in the field and illustrated with over 700 photographs and artwork, The World Encyclopedia of Locomotives is an exhaustive reference work that takes an illuminating glance at a technology that was pivotal in the development of the modern world.”

The Rise and Fall of Imperial Japan, 1894-1945 by Edited by S. L. Mayer (£16.00)Publisher: Bison Books — 1985Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0861241428]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges, short closed and tape-reinforced to the spine ends. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Reprint. [First: 1984 thus, previously published as ‘The Japanese War Machine’ in 1976] Maps to the endpapers. Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “In 1868, Japan emerged from feudalism and civil conflict as a comparatively undeveloped industrial state in an age of European imperialism in East Asia. Within a generation, Japan had risen to the ranks of the foremost industrial and military powers in the Western Pacific. A generation later, Japan had become the paramount power in East Asia, and her naval and air forces spread Japanese power across the Pacific. The formidable weapon built in the name of the Emperor swept across China and Manchuria; her air forces pummelled Pearl Harbor and Darwin; her armies marched to Singapore and the gates of India. Her navies seized some Aleutian islands and strafed the California coast. By 1942 the world had come to know the power of the most devastating force in the Pacific — the Japanese War Machine.

The force and power of the Japanese War Machine is told here by some of the world’s leading experts in guns, tanks, planes, and ships of World War II. The drama of Japan’s seizure of Manchuria, the take-over of the State by the Army, the invasion of China, the simultaneous attack on Malaya, Hawaii, the Philippines and the oil-rich Dutch East Indies is told in all the horror and shock the Japanese invader placed before Western eyes. The fall of Singapore and Hong Kong, the conquest of Burma and Indo-China took place within a hundred days. The flag of the Rising Sun ruled a maritime empire from the Russian border to the gates of Australia, from Burma to Midway.

But the strength of the Japanese War Machine depended on Japanese industrial power, which in the end, was no match for the United States and its Allies. The Japanese soldier, infused with the warrior code of Bushido fought hard and long in New Guinea’s jungles; as the struggle was brought closer to Japan’s home islands, the Japanese soldier fought on tenaciously in the Philippines and on Iwo Jima and Okinawa. The air forces began suicide missions, thekamikaze, which drove into Allied aircraft, heroically and fanatically.. .but all too little, too late. The nuclear holocaust, which ended World War II, left a ruined Japan and a wrecked Japanese War Machine.

THE RISE AND FALL OF IMPERIAL JAPAN is the tragic and noble history of a gallant people led into a misguided war. The millions who suffered in Asia and the Pacific in the wake of the Japanese War Machine bear silent tribute to its folly.”

A study of the National Shipbuilding and Engineering dispute of 1957. From the introduction: “During 1956 the Leverhulme Trustees made a grant to Nuffield College for research in industrial relations over a period of seven years. The College thereupon began to plan projects to be carried out within the terms of the grant, and work commenced in the autumn of 1956. When a national shipbuilding strike was called in March 1957, and followed by an engineering strike, it seemed such an important event within the field of industrial relations that other work was temporarily laid aside to permit us to concentrate on a study of the strike. This book is the result.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾". Red boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 179 pages.

[First: Ian Allan, 1986] Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Tables;

From the cover: “This pictorial record of British Railways covers four eventful decades of that much-maligned but nevertheless vital organisation.

The central characters are, as always, the trains and the locomotives that haul them.

From the austere days of the early Nationalisation era, to the more colourful but uncertain railway scene of recent years, the image of the rolling stock constantly changes — grimy black steam locos with ‘blood-and-custard’ carriages give way to the Diesel era, and the sterile uniformity of Corporate Blue livery is in turn replaced by an explosion of exciting new colour schemes, reflecting the revised structure of BR, which may ultimately signal a return to some form of private ownership.”

From the cover: “What makes a rail tour extraordinary? Is it the countryside, unique people and places along the way, a colourful or turbulent history, select carriage interiors and the ultimate in comfort, or the noble patina bestowed by a succession of distinguished passengers?

The answer is all that and more, and each of the 24 journeys in this book contains liberal doses of these magic ingredients. One common factor unites them: the romance and allure of this incomparable mode of travel, which grants modern-day explorers an increasingly rare commodity — time. On a train one has time to absorb the passing scenery, and an opportunity to socialize with other travellers or spend reflective moments in solitude.

Stories about trains as diverse as Pakistan’s Bolan Mail and Australia’s Savannahlander, the Cornish Riviera Express and the California Zephyr convey the authors’ passion for the lines, locomotives and carriages, and their deep respect for the men who planned and built them, often under harrowing circumstances. Hand-drawn maps, evocative images and the captivating first-hand narrative of knowledgeable travel and railway writers combine to present unique experiences that carry readers from the Arctic Circle to the heat of India. Extraordinary Railway Journeys is an entertaining collection of adventures, all of which can be re-enacted today (contact details and booking information are listed at the back of the book).”

Surviving the Sword: Prisoners of the Japanese 1942-45 by Brian MacArthur (£14.00)Publisher: Time Warner — 2005Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0316861421]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. Edges of the text block lightly tanned.Description: From the cover: “Many of the British, Australian and American prisoners held by the Japanese during the Second World War were so scarred by their experiences that afterwards they could not discuss them even with their families. They believed that their brutal treatment by Japanese and Korean guards was, literally, incomprehensible. But some prisoners were determined that posterity should know how they were starved and beaten, marched almost to death or transported on ‘hellships’, and used as slave labour — most notoriously on the Burma-Thailand railway — and how thousands died from tropical diseases. They risked torture and execution to keep secret diaries and make sketches and drawings that they hid from the guards wherever they could, sometimes burying them in the graves of lost comrades. The diaries tell of inhumanity and degradation, but there are also inspirational stories of courage, comradeship and compassion: how the men cared for the sick; risked death to steal from the Japanese; staged shows, concerts and cricket matches in the jungle; made secret radios; and how the doctors operated — and saved lives — with razors and butcher’s saws. When men have unwillingly plumbed the depths of human misery, said one prisoner, the artist Ronald Searle, they form a silent understanding of what solidarity, friendship and kindness to others can mean. The diaries and interviews with surviving prisoners on which Surviving the Sword is based will tell a new generation about that solidarity, friendship and kindness.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

The Golden Years of British Steam Trains: Colin Garratt On the Work of A. W. V. Mace by Colin Garratt (£14.00)Publisher: Milepost 92½ — 1995Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1900193051]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs;

From the cover: “The Golden Years of British Steam Trains contains two hundred and fifty glorious pictures, magnificently printed in Duotone recalling the living vitality of the steam age during its most exciting years. The pictures have been chosen by Colin Garratt from the collection of the late Rev. A. W. V. Mace and grouped into sections of the big four companies; L. M. S. , G. W. R. , S. R. and L. N. E. R. These companies operated from 1923 until the formation of British Railways in 1948. This twenty five year period was the high summer of steam railway operation when the most technically advanced designs worked in contrast with a plethora of ancient types dating back to the individual designs of the separate companies of pre 1923.

Arthur Mace travelled widely across Britain capturing the vibrant spirit of this exciting period. The matchless photography contained within these covers rates him as a leading name in the history of railway photography notwithstanding that he was relatively unknown until Milepost took over the responsibility for his pictorial legacy and published the first volume of his work in 1994.”

The Trains We Loved by David St John Thomas & Patrick Whitehouse (£14.00)Publisher: David & Charles — 1994Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0715302922]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Plates;

From the cover: “Do you remember the days when the train journey was the best part of the holiday? When the great named expresses, hauled by the most powerful steam locomotives ever built, ran to time-honoured patterns? When trains formed of yesteryear’s rolling stock criss-crossed the land on well-ordered branch lines, calling at strings of picturesque stations commanded by proud station-masters?

Although many hark back to an even earlier age, half remembered or known from tales handed down by father or grandfather, few would argue that the finest days of railway travel began towards the end of the steam era and carried on into the period of nationalisation. BR continued to build steam locomotives on a grand scale, even manufacturing machines to the old companies’ designs, while many pre-Grouping locomotives were still busily at work. In the last days of steam many expresses were both heavier and faster, and used by a much wider cross-section of the population. And despite the pressures to conform, traditional practices and the individuality of the different parts of the railways still persisted. It is this era that The Trains We Loved evokes: the sights and sounds — even the smells — of the glory days of rail travel in Britain.

David St John Thomas and Patrick Whitehouse have produced an expansive text, rich in atmosphere but based on sound research and with substantial reference value. Portraits of the six regions and Ireland alternate with fascinating insights into how rail traffic was affected by the seasons, and the significance of holiday and school specials. Glimpses into station life shed light on the operating problems faced by staff and the devotion that went into solving them. Older readers will surely exclaim: ‘Yes, that’s exactly how it was!’ while those too young to remember will marvel at what has been lost

But The Trains We Loved is also a visual feast thirty-two splendid paintings, many previously unpublished, by Philip Hawkins, chairman of the Guild of Railway Artists, evoke the period in his own distinctive and unerringly accurate way. One hundred of the finest black and white railway photographs by Philip Alexander, Eric Treacy and other famous names make their own substantial contribution.”

The Wild Side of Town by Chris Baines (£14.00)Publisher: British Broadcasting Corporation [B.B.C./BBC] — 1986Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Signed by the Author.[ISBN: 0563213124]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Description: Signed by the author on the half-title page — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Diagrams; Tables;

From the cover: “Following the success of How to Make a Wildlife Garden, Chris Baines takes his wildlife crusade beyond the garden fence and into the green deserts which make up an astonishingly high proportion of our towns and cities.

Recent destruction of woodland and hedgerow means that ‘the countryside’ can no longer sustain a rich variety of wildlife and ironically the built-up areas can provide a much needed refuge. Railway cuttings, wasteland and sympathetic parks and gardens combine to produce essential corridors, leading foxes or badgers from one feeding ground or haven to another. Birds, frogs and insects may not need the same continuity of green cover, but they do need safe breeding areas, freedom from chemical pollution, and reliable sources of food.

We spend millions of pounds a year on mowing grass — but why not let lawns grow longer and allow buttercups and daisies to flourish in them? Why not leave decaying leaves on the ground to provide shelter for hedgehogs and food for harmless creepy-crawlies?

Chris Baines has asked these questions of a lot of ‘authorities’ and had an encouraging and positive response. Now his TV series and this inspirational book show how everyone can help to turn our towns and cities into one huge nature reserve — for wildlife and for people.”

Great Western Swindon by Tim Bryan (£13.00)Publisher: The Chalford Publishing Company — 1995Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 075240153X]Condition: Very Good. Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs.

From the cover: “For almost 150 years, the influence of the Great Western Railway’s workshops in Swindon extended well beyond the great walls which surround much of the complex, which at its height, covered over 320 acres. Although the works has now closed, its influence on the town it helped to create is as strong as ever.

In this collection of old photographs drawn from the archives of the GWR Museum in Swindon, the reader is taken on a photographic tour of the great workshops and the huge variety of activities which went on in the factory are well illustrated with many evocative pictures mainly covering the period between 1900 and 1960.

Swindon was justly famous for the quality of the locomotives and rolling stock it produced, but this book also tells the story of the men behind the machines. Rare and unpublished photographs show something of life for the railway worker both inside and outside the works, and it is hoped that this selection will give the reader some idea of what it was like to live in what many see as the archetypal ‘Railway Town’.”

Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the introduction: “The reader will be able to see from this collection of photographs relating to Malmesbury that during the latter half of the nineteenth century, many businesses were started, schools opened, and the railway came to the town. It really was a progressive age. In 1875, Malmesbury had 240 commercial business enterprises, including three breweries and 23 public houses. There are now no breweries, many public houses have closed, and the majority of the old family firms have gone for ever. Not only have the names disappeared from the scene, but often the property has been demolished.”Notes: Size: 9¼" x 6½". 128 pages.

The Khrushchev Pattern by Frank Gibney (£13.00)Publisher: Prentice-Hall International — 1961Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with some very small nicks. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: From the cover: “DURING THE HALF DECADE between 1955 and 1960, men watched with dreadful fascination the uncoiling of the Khrushchev Pattern, one of the most startling switches in the history of international politics, and one of the cleverest. The leader of the Soviet Union, Nikita Khrushchev, used his power to swing his country and the entire Communist movement along a path of “competitive coexistence” that seemed to challenge not only the tactics of Stalin’s past rule but the very premises of the Communist system. Frank Gibney shows how successfully this new tactic operated with the world’s Communist parties and their sympathizers—in the widest variety of circumstances. In some areas it posed great problems for Khrushchev, because its surface friendliness and emphasis on a Popular Front approach threatened the historic unity of Communist discipline. At moments, as in the Hungarian revolt of 1956, the entire approach had to be sacrificed to the ruthless needs of Soviet power politics. But by and large Khrushchev’s “soft sell” version of Communism proved a far more formidable menace to the Free World than Stalin’s rigid line. Although the emphasis in his policy became openly aggressive after the U-2 incident and Khrushchev’s Summit breakup in the spring of 1960, the gains made by the Khrushchev Pattern were substantial. In a world where so many of the new, uncommitted nations appeared so ready to play off East against West, the superficially reasonable Khrushchev Pattern was surely as terrible a threat as Stalin’s more obvious aggression.”Notes: Jacket designed by Robert Jonas.

The Living Unknown Soldier by Jean-Yves Le Naour (£13.00)Publisher: William Heinemann — 2005Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0434013196]Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. DJ slightly ruffled at the edges.Description: A 1 Story of Grief and the Great War. Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “In February 1918, a derelict soldier was discovered wandering a railway station in Lyons, France. With no memory of his name or past, no identifying possessions, marks, or documents, the soldier — who was given the name Anihelme Mangin — was sent to an asylum for the insane. When, after the Great War ended, the authorities placed the soldier’s image in newspaper advertisements in an attempt to locate his family, hundreds of ‘relatives’ claimed him — as their father or son, husband or brother who had failed to return from the front. Marshalling a vast array of material, from letters and newspaper articles to accounts of battlefield deaths, hospital reports, and police files, French historian Jean-Yves Le Naour meticulously recreates the long-forgotten story of the single soldier who came to stand for a lost generation.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5½".
