Paul Heathcote's Rhubarb and Black Pudding by Matthew Fort (£19.00)Publisher: Fourth Estate — 1998Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1857025008]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Leans slightly. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “Paul Heathcote is a phenomenon even among the elite band of Britain’s master chefs. Not only has he resolutely stayed put in his native Lancashire to become one of the few Michelin-starred English chefs north of Watford, but he has also achieved this while pioneering his own special brand of haute cuisine, which is quite distinctively British, if not English — even Lancastrian.

Deconstructing and elevating traditional dishes like black pudding, roast duckling with mead, pig’s trotters stuffed with ham hock, apple crumble soufflé and deep-fried Stilton fritters, Heathcote has created the sort of cuisine du terroir so characteristic of the great French chefs but hitherto virtually unknown amongst their British counterparts.

In Rhubarb & Black Pudding, Paul Heathcote and award-winning food writer Matthew Fort have gathered together the best of Heathcote’s recipes. Arranged by seasons, they include dishes as varied as Pressed Ham Terrine; Fillet of Red Bream Marinated in Whisky and Dill; Roast Rack of Spring Lamb with Hot-pot Potatoes, Braised Lentils, Roast Shallots and Rosemary Juice; Compote of Caramelized Rhubarb with Elderflower Cream; and Creamed Rice Pudding Scented with Hazelnut. Matthew’s colourful introductions to each section also vividly convey the changing seasonal landscape and the creative processes as they unfold in the kitchen.

With stunning colour photography of the food, clear black-and-white reportage of the kitchens and evocative landscapes of the Ribble Valley through the changing seasons, Rhubarb & Black Pudding provides a unique picture of a great chef at work.”

Warworks: Women, Photography and the Iconography of War by Val Williams (£18.00)Publisher: London: Virago Press Limited — 1994Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 1853815918]Condition: Very Good. Light creasing to the bottom corner of the upper wrapper otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, 11th January - 19th March 1995. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “One of Britain’s most noted photographic curators and historians, Val Williams explores the myriad ways in which women photographers have used war to express major issues in contemporary art and society. In addressing collective memory, gender, sexuality and mass communication, she removes war photography from its niche as reportage and places it as a central channel for the contemporary imagination.

The Holocaust is looked at very differently in the works of Lee Miller and Rachel Lichtenstein; parody is present in Martha Rosler’s Bringing the War Home (House Beautiful) and in Anna Fox’s Weekend Wargames ; Deborah Blight’s Battlefield Panoramas explore war as lost memories; Barbara Alper’s Gulf Channel examines the new reporters, satellite TV; and Moira Mclver looks at men dressed for conflict. The photographs and accompanying essays provide a challenging dimension to photographic and cultural history. “

I Must Collect Myself: Choice Cuts from a Long Shelf Life by Maureen Lipman (£9.50)Publisher: Simon & Schuster — 2010Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 1847373488]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Black & White Drawings; 2nd printing. [First Published: 2010]

From the cover: “A sparkling collection of stories, reminiscences and rather good jokes, interspersed with inventive character monologues, for you to try, she hopes, at home, I Must Collect Myself is Maureen Lipman at her wittiest.

Together with twenty-one monologues, introducing some unforgettable characters — the excitable wannabe auditioning in Brittney’s Got Talent, Sheila the unintentionally smutty art tutor, the bitter American army wife drowning in the English home counties, Maureen has added many wonderful new pieces about her unpredictable life alongside some of her best Guardian newspaper columns. She also introduces us to her yodelling, barkless dog, Diva; attempts to auction Jeffrey Archer; has dinner with the Bishop of Rangoon; and shares her first hit musical at a chocolate factory. On the way, she gives us the inside story of playing an alien in Doctor Who; a night of cabaret to raise money for a statue of Spike Milligan in East Finchley; and eccentric adventures of the romantic variety.

The stories may be new but the astute take on life remains as sharp as ever. Maureen muses on the Eondon bombings, gets angry with road hogs, prays for lost chickens in Notre Dame, grieves for her late husband, Jack, admires Aung San Suu Kyi’s steadfastness, falls for a snowy owl and ponders ‘Princess Di’s memorial wet patch’.

Maureen Lipman’s I Must Collect Myself is as clever, funny and acute as the woman herself.”

Imperial Life in the Emerald City: Inside Baghdad's Green Zone by Rajiv Chandrasekaran (£9.50)Publisher: Bloomsbury — 2007Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0747591687]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper.Description: Later Printing. From the cover: “From a walled-off enclave of towering plants, smart villas and sparkling swimming pools — a surreal bubble of pure Americana known as the Green Zone — the US-led Coalition Provisional Authority, under imperial viceroy L. Paul Bremer III, attempted to rule Iraq in the first twelve months following the fall of Saddam Hussein’s regime. Drawing on hundreds of interviews and internal documents, Rajiv Chandrasekaran tells the memorable story of this ill-prepared attempt to build American democracy in a war-torn Middle Eastern country, detailing not only the risky disbanding of the Iraqi army and the ludicrous attempt to train the new police force, but also bringing to light a host of lesser-known yet typical travesties, among them: The aide who based Baghdad’s new traffic laws on those of the state of Maryland, downloaded from the net • The contractor with no previous experience paid millions to guard a closed airport • The case of the 24-year-old who had never worked in finance put in charge of revitalising Baghdad’s stock exchange • The people with prior experience in the Middle East who were excluded in favour of lesser-qualified Republican Party loyalists. Written with wit and urgency by a sharp-eyed observer, Imperial Life in the Emerald City provides a hair-raising portrait of the gap between the Oz-like Green Zone and the brutal reality of post-war Iraq. It is American reportage at its best.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾". Black boards with Green titling to the Spine. 356 pages.

Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: Later Printing. [First Edition: Same Year]. From the flap: “Tales From Far Pavilions explores cricket’s various — sometimes disastrous, frequently hilarious, occasionally triumphant — encounters with alien cultures. ‘Never before had an English cricket team crossed the mighty Andes’ writes Sir Pelham Warner of an early victory over Argentina. A Nazi German XI surrenders to the gentlemen of Worcester in 1937, but not without a fight, as James D. Coldham records, as the German captain felled an erring fielder with a right hook to the jaw. The book abounds with true stories of bizarre contests on foreign fields described by the famous and those whose strange tales from far pavilions are now brought to light for the first time.”Notes: Jacket designed by Ulf Greder.
