From the cover: “This work gives students and all those interested in the pre-colonial history of the East African coast translations of the principal documents on which our present knowledge is based. The object is to enable them to form their own ideas, even if they are not equipped with Greek, Latin, Arabic, Portuguese, French, Italian and Swahili. It contains most of the documents referred to by Dr. A. G. Mathew and Dr. G. S. P. Freeman-Grenville in their chapters in Vol. I of the History of East Africa, (Oxford 1962). Nothing earlier than 1500 has been excluded, and, because they reflect valuable local ideas of the history of earlier times, some late nineteenth century Swahili documents have also been included.”

A History of Arctic Exploration: Discovery, Adventure and Endurance at the Top of the World by Juha Nurminen & Matti Lainema (£36.50)Publisher: London: Conway — 2009Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 9781844860692]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Colour Plates; Maps;

From the cover: “Documenting more than 2,500 years of Arctic exploration, from the earliest seafarers of antiquity and the great naval and mercantile voyages in search of the Northwest and Northeast Passages, to the conquest of the North Pole and even beyond, this book is the definitive account of expeditions made throughout the great Northern polar expanse. For the first time, it brings together the major explorers from both East and West to present one of the most detailed and beautifully illustrated surveys of the region’s history ever published.

Drawing on many previously unseen charts, artworks and maps from major European museums, the extensive holdings of the Nurminen Foundation as well as private collections and archives, A History of Arctic Exploration reveals how this remote region was gradually explored and charted by men of supreme skill, courage and initiative, overcoming extreme conditions in almost incredible feats of endurance. Key figures such as Barents, Franklin, Nordenskiold, Peary, Nansen, Stefansson and Amundsen are discussed in depth, together with an evaluation of their achievements, showing how each contributed to our understanding of the Arctic. Many perished as the North defiantly held on to its secrets, ultimately proving that success could only be achieved by adapting to the extreme conditions, following the example of the indigenous peoples, who had successfully inhabited the North for hundreds of years.

Today, the future of the Arctic is of global concern. In recent years, climate change and sovereignty disputes over territory have highlighted this worrying reality, drawing much attention to the region. Yet the Arctic has always been an inspiring and fascinating place, as well as a source of much human drama due to its harsh landscape and demanding conditions. Arctic expeditions were motivated by many different factors, including the pursuit of trade and commerce, knowledge, international dominance, individual fame, natural resources and scientific endeavour, but they can all be characterised by the uniquely human desire to push back frontiers. Collectively the accounts of such epic journeys form an absorbing and complex historical narrative, fully presented in this insightful and deeply resonant book.”

Improved grassland management by John Frame (£34.00)Publisher: Farming Press — 1992Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0852362463]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the spine ends and corners with commensurate ruffling to the dustwrapper.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs, tables and charts. From the cover: “In all its diverse forms, grass is the renewable foundation feed for ruminant production — the green gold of many rural regions and, indeed, countries. Competition for agricultural markets, intensifying in a world growing ever smaller, together with a host of economic and political pressures, requires swift and flexible response and adaptation from grassland farmers to the challenge of change and improved efficiency of use. Precision of inputs, predictability of outputs and profitability are triple objectives.

Against this background, this book subdivides grassland management into its interrelated components before dealing with utilisation by grazing and by hay/silage. The approach taken is the application to practice of basic scientific principles using mainly British and European grassland as examples. Nevertheless, the principles can be applied to grassland elsewhere in the temperate world. Management in relation to the new surge of interest in extensification, forage legume use, nature conservation and environmentally sustainable systems of animal production is also covered.

Written in a reader-friendly, advisory style, Improved Grassland Management is a book for grassland farmers, extension officers, students of agriculture and land use and plant scientists — in fact for everyone with an interest in Mother Earth’s green carpet.”

The Crowded Sky: An Anthology of Flight from the Beginnings to the Age of the Guided Missile by Edited by Neville Duke & Edward Lanchbery (£34.00)Publisher: London: Cassell & Co. Ltd. — 1959Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with a small tape repair at the foot of the lower panel to the join and further closed tears at the spine ends. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned with spotting to the blanks. Description: From the cover: “Man’s longing to fly is as old as history. The wish to escape from the earth and soar with the birds recurs in Biblical verse and ancient legend, but it was Leonardo da Vinci who first considered the practical problems involved. From da Vinci to Colonel Frank Everest, Jr. , ‘the fastest man alive’, who in 1956 flew the Bell X-2 rocket plane at nearly two thousand miles an hour, this anthology of prose and poetry takes in its stride every conceivable branch of aviation, including the first faltering experiments, and the heyday of the balloon and the airship (there is an absorbing description taken from Nevil Shute’s autobiography of the testing of the R. 100, whose sister ship the R. 101 went to her doom so soon afterwards). Beside Bleriot’s exciting story are con-temporary newspaper accounts of Britain’s first air meetings and early flying clubs, and all else which has gone to make up the panorama of aviation through the ages. The First World War brought the greatest single challenge to the improvement of the aeroplane, and is seen here from the points of view of both Allied and German air aces. But flying was still in its infancy, at a time when the officer in command of the aeroplane gave the signal to descend by means of a smack on his pilot’s helmet! From the first World War to the second, with its roll of immortal names, among them Guy Gibson, Pierre Clostermann and Cheshire, V. C.; and finally to peace and the age of jet aircraft. In a section entitled Wings of Peace the editors show that to some, flying is an escape from the cares of the earth and a retreat that gives spiritual solace. So we come up-to-date with today’s test pilot, exploring new regions of speed and altitude, and developing test flying into a skilled and complicated science.

Here is a book to be dipped into again and again for its tales of high adventure, of the incredible audacity of men battling against the eternal forces of nature, and of the progress of aviation from its humble beginnings to its present vast complexity.”

Asian Cooking: Recipes from the Far East by Edited by Lydia Darbyshire (£23.50)Publisher: Colour Library Books — 1999Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 1841001201]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper.Description: From the cover: “The cuisines of Southeast Asia have enjoyed a boom in recent years, with Thai cooking currently rating as the most popular ethnic cuisine worldwide. This new-found interest is hardly surprising given the vast geographical area encompassed, and therefore the immense wealth and diversity of cooking styles on offer.

Asian Cooking brings together dishes from Vietnam, where the cuisine is a subtle blend of Chinese, Thai and French cuisines, from Thailand and Korea, from the four major regions of China and from Japan. The result is an irresistible collection of ideas for cooking with rice and noodles, using fresh meat and fish, and blending herbs and spices to create the subtle flavours that dominate the Orient.

There is an informative section describing the few essential tools and utensils required, and explaining the basic techniques and cooking methods which can be used to bring out the best in a wide variety of raw ingredients. There is also a full glossary of ingredients together with suggestions for suitable alternatives.

With over 400 recipes this book offers a comprehensive overview of the cuisines featured, with recipes for special occasions, as well as one-pot wonders for one or two people. In each case the emphasis is on providing recipes for authentic, easily-prepared recipes for all occasions.”

Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Maps; Tables;

From the cover: “Authoritative, international and up-to-date, The New Sotheby’s Wine Encyclopedia is arranged geographically and combines nearly 100 detailed maps with information on all wine-growing areas, profiles of top producers and assessments of individual wines. The book’s easy-reference style coupled with its huge breadth of information, makes it an unrivalled source of wine information for both beginners and buffs.

Wines Of The World:Taking each winemaking country in turn, Tom Stevenson examines its viticultural history, its wine-producing regions and the current reputation of its wines. He analyzes the factors affecting the taste and quality of each region’s wines — location, aspect, soil, microclimates, grape varieties and methods of viticulture and vinification — before assessing its appellations, then individual wine producers (chateaux or wineries) and, of course, the wines themselves.

Enjoying Wine: Tom Stevenson provides practical guidelines on wine tasting, while an “author’s choice” chart at the end of each section lists the very best wines. A star-rating system identifies the finest producers, and highlights those offering the best value. A “taste chart” explains how to identify the flavours in a wine and a “trouble-shooter’s guide” spots common wine faults.

Whether you are a newcomer wanting to explore the pleasures of wine or a wine enthusiast looking for inspiration, The New Sotheby’s Wine Encyclopedia is the book to consult again and again. .”

Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “Lifelong learning is no longer merely a philosophy. As Norman Longworth shows in this lively and inspiring book, lifelong learning has now become a rapidly developing reality. Learning communities, where business and industry, schools, colleges, universities, professional organizations and local government co-operate and build a dynamic new environment to foster learning, are springing up throughout the world. The future for learning, from cradle to grave, is entering an exciting new phase.

Using many concrete examples of learning communities that are already adapting for the future, Norman Longworth also describes the circumstances under which lifelong learning can help cities, towns and regions to design and implement strategies for change. Packed with case studies and vital insights into the world of learning communities, the book provides a highly readable and thought-provoking glimpse of the future of learning within society and the city.

This book’s strength lies in its reliance on data and experience from leading-edge learning communities and a deep knowledge of the multi-faceted nature of lifelong learning. The future of learning is already here. Making Lifelong Learning Work distils the best global practices into workable local solutions and will make compelling and indispensable reading for every person, private or professional, in local government, education, industry and the community at large..”

Living with Folk Art: Ethnic Styles from Around the World by Nicholas Barnard (£16.00)Publisher: Thames & Hudson — 1991Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0500015104]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Jacket illustration: Upper: Pre-Columbian masks, figures and animals are grouped alongside an Australian Aborigine stele; Rear: A collection of Mexican Indian and colonial artifacts, furniture and furnishings. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Black & White Drawings; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “Turkoman jewellery hung in glittering clusters above a cottage fireplace, a shapely and colourful array of Pueblo pots brightening drab kitchen shelves, an Indian house-shrine forming a miniature alcove for a flickering flame… here are interiors of all kinds in which ethnic art shines out as a challenging and increasingly fashionable alternative to the familiar trappings of conventional home decoration. Nicholas Barnard and James Merrell’s painstaking location work in Europe and America has yielded dazzling colour photographs of tribal and folk art beautifully harmonized with the best of Western design.

The art of primitive peoples — ceramics and textiles, masks and metalware, baskets and carvings — was once dismissed in the West as heathen and crude; but opinions have now been completely transformed. Artists such as Picasso and Matisse led the new enthusiasm for tribal and folk art in the early decades of the twentieth century. Today such dynamic yet deeply rooted creativity is available to us all: to travellers, in museums and art galleries, but also, more importantly, in Western shops and markets. From delicate Indonesian floral batiks to ghoulish Mexican Day-of-the-Dead figurines, from African earthenware to intricately fretted Indian screens, the range of artefacts now obtainable is boundless.

Living with Folk Art charts the growing appreciation of arts and crafts from regions outside the developed world. The original use and significance of the objects now adorning our homes are fully detailed, and a worldwide survey documents the peoples who made them. Nicholas Barnard provides inspiring ideas for displaying these items, whether functionally as furniture, architectural fittings or kitchenware, or simply as decorations, and advises on their care and collection. A comprehensive directory lists galleries where such art can be seen, and retailers from whom it can be obtained.

Exotic, charming, but always unusual and provocative, folk art can transform interiors of all kinds.”

Italy by Herbert Ypma (£15.50)Publisher: Thames & Hudson — 2002Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0500283478]Condition: Near Fine.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “For this new volume of Hip Hotels, Herbert Ypma has ventured far beyond the rolling hills of Tuscany, the postcard-perfect Amalfi Coast, or the Grand Tour destinations of Venice, Florence and Rome, to introduce real discoveries in under-explored regions like Puglia, Basilicata and Le Marche. You might be inspired to visit the utterly refined Hotel Raya on the Aeolian island of Panarea, from whose all-white terraces you can watch the volcano of Stromboli spurt fiery lava into the night skies. At the opposite end of the country, in the ultra-stylish ski town of Cortina d’Ampezzo, is Hotel de la Poste, run today by the same family as when Hemingway used to drive up from Venice in the early 1930s. Or if you prefer the beach life and night life of the Adriatic Coast, then fashion designer Alberta Ferretti’s Carducci 76 makes a superslick base. Many hotels are a complete surprise: ancient cave-dwellings in the eroded rocky landscape of Basilicata, or the trulli of Puglia, centuries-old igloo-like constructions with conical slate roofs. And whether cave, abbey, olive mill, fishing hut or barefoot beachside palazzo, every one of these unique hotels is true to its locale in architecture, design and gastronomy.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 8".

Arthur's Britain: The Land and the Legend by Derek Brewer (£14.00)Publisher: The Pevensey Press — 1985Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0907115268]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Facsimiles; Colour Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “In British folktale, legend and literature, King Arthur, the saviour hero of the land, lives on. He takes his origin from a possible heroic warrior of the Celtic races who was the dominant leader of the resistance movement against the invading English. But in the Middle Ages the English themselves came to adopt him as their representative king, and the stories of his exploits, of his knights — Lancelot, Gawain, Kay and the rest — and of his beautiful Queen Guinevere and her fatal love affair with Lancelot all took their settings from Britain.

Nowhere are these stories more vividly perpetuated than on the face of the British landscape. From Loch Lomond to St Michael’s Mount, from Wookey Hole to the Brecon Beacons, striking natural features throughout England, Scotland and Wales have tales of Arthur and his knights attached to them; and so do man-made monuments, from prehistoric stone circles and burial chambers to medieval fortified castles and inaccessible hermits’ cells.

In all their variety of shape and mood the major Arthurian sites of Britain are illustrated here, in colour throughout, by Ernest Frankl (well known as the photographer of the Pevensey Press souvenir guidebooks), who evokes their quintessential character. In his commentary, the distinguished medieval scholar Derek Brewer first traces the growth of Arthurian stories in literature, and then takes a refreshingly direct look at the tales surrounding each site — without minimising the power of the legends, and of the locations that have fostered them, to stir the imagination.

Usefully divided into four main regions to serve as a guide for planning holidays and as a gazetteer whilst travelling, this handsome book will be welcomed as a unique compilation by all lovers of Britain’s heritage.”

From the flap: “In this volume, birds are treated, not as museum specimens or subjects simply to be identified and catalogued, but as living animals. The author discusses their evolution, anatomy, feeding, habitats, social behaviour, breeding and migration. The book therefore covers all aspects of avian biology. But what makes it so absolutely outstanding is its illustrations. Points made in the text are demonstrated by superb paintings by the Dutch artist and naturalist Ad Cameron, one of the world’s leading bird artists. The pictures depict birds in their natural postures and serve as a record, not only of the birds themselves, but of the modes of behaviour. The birds depicted come both from common European and American species and from the more exotic forms found in Africa, Australia, South America and Asia.”Notes: Size: 12¼" x 9¼".

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.

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.”

Winston Churchill: The Flawed Genius of World War II by Christopher Catherwood (£13.00)Publisher: Berkley Caliber — 2009Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0425225720]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Front flap has a small crease otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Revered for his strength of character and his willful defiance of Nazi Germany when Britain stood alone against the Third Reich, Winston Churchill is cherished as one of World War IIs most heroic figures, not only within the United Kingdom but throughout the world. His legacy during one of the darkest eras in human history paints a portrait of the man as a wonderful, larger-than-life personality — a characterization that overshadows his faults and his foibles in those crucial years.

But those faults and foibles had a devastating legacy of their own.

Winston Churchill — The Flawed Genius of World War II examines the decisions and policies Churchill made in the vital months between June 1940 and December 1941 that hindered more than helped the Allied cause. From dispatching British troops to North Africa and Greece and establishing the Special Operations Executive, to his insistence on the Mediterranean’s importance to victory and ignoring George C. Marshall’s plan that would have won the war in 1943, Churchill’s directives not only extended the conflict, but also destabilized several regions that remain in chaos even at the dawn of the twenty-first century.

With profound insight into Churchill’s early colonial experiences as well as his first tenure as First Lord of the Admiralty, Christopher Catherwood offers an honest appraisal of his strategies in a unique and fascinating perspective that separates the myth from the man.”

Lambert's Birds of Shore and Estuary by Alan Mitchell (£12.50)Publisher: Collins — 1979Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 000219001X]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and the top corners of the boards with commensurate wear to the dust wrapper, slight fraying to the top corner of the upper panel which has short closed tears to top and bottom. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Plates;

From the cover: “Britain’s coasts and estuaries can boast an enviable diversity of bird life. There are few better places for the bird-watcher to spend some time. In this, his second, book Terence Lambert presents us with a gallery of portraits of the birds that can be seen wherever sea and land meet. He paints with a sure hand. Whether he is portraying a scavenging gull, a predatory skua making off with a young fledgling, a peregrine imperiously tearing at its prey, or a graceful tern returning to its mate on the nest, the birds are painted with the same superb accuracy of detail, and the same evocative power, that distinguished his earlier work. To study these paintings is to take a journey to our coast. They conjure up the sounds and smells of the sea, and the calls of birds across the bare desolation of the mudflats.

When Lambert’s Birds of Garden and Woodland was first published, Terence Lambert was acclaimed as a young artist of great promise. In his new book, that promise is amply fulfilled. Terence Lambert can now join the ranks of the best of the world’s bird-painters. This is a book to treasure; a delight to the eye.”

[ISBN: 0297846442]Condition: Near Fine — in Near Fine Dustwrapper.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Following the great success of the best-selling Forgotten Voices of the Great War, Max Arthur has found and interviewed the last twenty-one British veterans of the conflict. The oldest of these men is 109, the youngest 104. In their own words they describe the extraordinary changes that have occurred during their lifetimes. Born in the reign of Queen Victoria, all have lived as adults through the Depression, the Second World War and the Millennium. But for these men, the Great War was the defining period of their lives. Some of them, mere boys at the outbreak, lied about their ages to join up. They saw action in the trenches, at sea and in the fledgling air services.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Ninety Degrees North — The Quest for the North Pole by Fergus Fleming (£12.50)Publisher: Granta — 2001Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1862074496]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “What was the North Pole? Was it an open sea, a volcano or the Garden of Eden? Was it a portal to new worlds within the globe or an undiscovered continent containing a race of alien beings? Or was it simply a wilderness of ice? In the mid-nineteenth century, the world decided it was time to find out.

America led the field. Commanders such as Kane, Hayes and Hall, battled sickness, shipwreck and starvation to reach the top of the world. So terrible was one voyage that the crew poisoned their captain rather than, continue north — only to become marooned on a drifting floe for nine months. Other nations followed: Germany, newly united and eager for its place in the ice; Austria-Hungary, decrepit but still capable of discovery; and Britain, whose sledgers reached a farthest north in 1876 before being driven back by scurvy.

Where governments failed, individuals took up the challenge. Norwegian skiers, Swedish balloonists, Italian aristocrats, tweedy British amateurs and global press barons, tried and failed in heroic succession. Finally came Robert Peary, a grim obsessive who claimed to have reached the Pole in 1909 — but who almost certainly did not. It was a joint Italian-Norwegian team, led by Roald Amundsen, who first saw the North Pole (from a zeppelin) in 1926 and, twenty-two years later, a party of Cold War Russians who first set foot on it.

Drawing on unpublished archives and long-forgotten journals, Fleming tells the story of the North Pole with consummate craftsmanship and wit. Ninety Degrees North is a riveting saga of humankind’s search for the ultimate goal.”

Divided into seven geographical regions, Rick Stein’s Seafood Lovers’ Guide is packed with information and recipes that will tempt and enthral anyone who enjoys cooking and eating really good fish. Rick introduces each region with a description of the area and describes the local delicacies and dishes that can be found there — from the spectacular taste of wood-smoked haddock in the North East of Scotland to the sweet flavour of the enormous brown crabs to be found in the West Country.

As rich and varied as the regions themselves, Rick’s new collection of recipes includes sensational dishes such as Roast Monkfish with Crushed Potatoes, Olive Oil and Watercress; Ravioli of Fresh Crab with Warm Parsley and Lemon Butter: and Salt Ling, Tomato and Potato Pasties. And for simple family meals at home, Rick has added a separate selection of classic British seafood dishes, such as Skate with Black Butter and a delicious Fish Pie.

For those who feel the desire to follow in Rick’s footsteps, each region includes a selection of recommended places to eat and buy seafood. From harbour-side restaurants, fish-and-chip shops, pubs and oyster bars to fishmongers and smokeries, each entry is complete with address, telephone number, directions and a brief description of what you can expect to find.

Fully illustrated with stunning food photography by James Murphy and beautiful landscape photography by Craig Easton, Rick Stein’s Seafood Lovers’ Guide is both a classic collection of delicious and inspirational seafood recipes and a wonderful souvenir of Britain’s coastal heritage.”

The Pressures of Oil: A Strategy for Economic Revival by Peter R Odell; Luis Vallenilla; (£12.50)Publisher: Harper & Row — 1978Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition.

Text bright and tight.Description: From the cover: “In this book two of the world’s leading experts on oil analyse the contemporary conflict in the western economy, highlight the dangers of allowing it to continue and offer a radical solution. They recommend that the wealth created by OPEC oil and that of the OECD nations should be used in part to finance a joint OPEC/OECD Agency for Cooperation and Development. This agency would finance the balance of trade deficits of the poor, oil importing countries-in an enterprise such as the Marshall Plan with no requirement for repayment; it would finance the countless opportunities which exist in the Third World for the exploitation of energy resources, particularly oil and gas, the potential for which in such regions remains virtually unexplored and untouched.”Notes: Size: 8½" x 6".

The Story of India by Michael Wood (£12.50)Publisher: BBC Books — 2007Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0563539151]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with a snag to the head of the spine creating an untidy, but closed, triangular tear to the join of the lower panel. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: 2nd printing. [First Published: 2007] Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Maps; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “In this lavishly illustrated companion to his BBC TV series, Michael Wood weaves a spellbinding narrative out of the 10,000-year history of India. Home today to more than a fifth of the world’s population, the subcontinent gave birth to the oldest and most influential civilization on Earth, to four world religions, and to the world’s largest democracy. Now, as India bids to become a global economic giant, Michael sets out to trace the roots of India’s present in the incredible riches of her past.

From the Khyber Pass and the Himalayas to the tropical jungles of India’s Deep South, this original and striking survey of Indian history provides vivid portraits of India’s regions and cultures, and new insights into some of history’s greatest figures: the Buddha and Ashoka, Samudragupta and Akbar the Great, Nehru and Gandhi. It explores the ways in which Indian ideas and inventions have shaped the history of the world, and shows how some of ancient India’s conclusions about the nature of civilization have lost none of their relevance for our own times.

Dazzling colour photographs capture an extraordinary spectrum of landscapes, architectural splendours, customs, rituals and festivals. This sumptuously illustrated book from one of Britain’s best-loved historians and broadcasters is a magical mixture of history and travelogue, and an unforgettable portrait of India — past, present and future.”
