Teamwork in Industry by F. J. Burns Morton (£63.00)Publisher: Chapman & Hall — 1948Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with loss at the head of the upper panel and closed tears to the lower. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Tanning and spotting to the blanks and endpapers. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: From the cover: “The author’s previous book, The New Foremanship, endeavoured to propound and analyse the problem of supervision in the light of present circumstances and likely trends. It was suggested that new methods of supervision were "necessary to bring social relationships, which in industry had remained static, into line with the great developments which had taken place in technical organisation; and further, what was needed in foremanship was also necessary in other managerial practices.

This present book, which is also addressed to all in authority and to those thinking employees who believe in the possibilities, of their jobs, sets out to show the direction of the second step. It examines the nature of better working relationships, and shows that harmonious, consciously directed working together leads to increased efficiency. Thus the name Teamwork in Industry.

The twelve chapters discuss such vital topics as the human factor and the influencing of human behaviour, co-operation and industrial relations, job satisfaction, selection and training of staff, incentives, leadership, supervision, discipline, absenteeism, working conditions and social organisation. The book concludes with a useful bibliography and index.”

Principles of Agricultural Economics: Markets and Prices in Less Developed Countries by David Colman; Trevor Young; (£43.00)Publisher: Cambridge University Press — 1995Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0521336643]Condition: Very Good. Pages lightly age-tanned.Description: Reprint. [First: 1989] From the cover: “This textbook addresses the main economic principles required by agricultural economists involved in rural development. The principles of ‘micro-economies’ or ‘price-theory’ are of relevance to economists everywhere, but this book reinforces the message of their relevance for rural development by explaining the theory in the specific context of the agricultural and food sectors of developing countries. Hypothetical and actual empirical illustrations drawn almost exclusively from such countries distinguish this book from other economic principles texts that draw their examples almost invariably from industrialised countries, and also from books more oriented to the issues of rural development. The first half of the book deals with the underlying principles of production, supply and demand. These are essential tools for the study and management of the agricultural sector and food markets. In the second half, supply and demand are brought together into a chapter of equilibrium and exchange. This is followed by chapters on trade and the theory of economic welfare. In the final chapter it is shown that much of the material in the earlier chapters can be combined by agricultural economists into a system for analysing and comparing the effects of alternative agricultural policies. The ability of agricultural economics to provide a consistent framework for the analysis of policy problems thus enables it to make a key contribution to rural development.”Notes: Size: Trade Paperback (9¼" x 6").

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.”

Wisdom Of The Wild: How We Treat Our Planet by Anon. (£26.50)Publisher: Word Wide Fund for Nature — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Presentation plate to the first blank.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “There is no turning back. There never has been in history. Two hundred million American citizens are not going to leave the USA just to give back to the Indians the land that was stolen from them. The Inuit in Greenland are not about to climb into their kayaks to paddle back up the river of history. The wisdom with which “wild” peoples have animated their world cannot be fetched back at will. Nevertheless, there is a great deal to learn. This, for example: how, on the threshold of the third millennium, can we live once again in a finite world without consuming it? Pedagogues tell us that children need elements of the wild and disorder in order to become mentally sound adults. The child in its den is said to be subconsciously remembering the feeling of safety which our ancestors experienced in caves in the childhood of mankind. In Sweden, they let children fly back to the beginnings of humanity on the wings of their imagination, as it were. The wild as a tonic.

Henry David Thoreau’s suggestion that every major city should have some wildness in its vicinity (because otherwise its inhabitants would revert to the wild) is almost one hundred and fifty years old — and highly topical in view of the frustration which people feel in our concrete bunkers.

An end must be put to the dominance of the right angle. Protection programmes for spacious areas of wilderness have one purpose, among others, namely to preserve the charm of untouched nature. Real-life magic! Magic, or rather cheap tricks — that is what our oh-so-en-lightened world thought of the healing knowledge of the jungle Indians for such a long time. Until, at the sight of the burning rain forests, they realised that the best pharmacy in the world was going up in flames.

The awareness of its utility should not be the rescuers’ sole motive, however. If we only take up arms in defence of the earth where our immediate living conditions are threatened, we shall soon be sitting amidst the ruins of a barren planet. It is (unfortunately, some would say) not the case that when the trees die, man also dies immediately. There are no trees in the Mongolian steppes, but they are still not dead. The fact is, as an Indian chief once said: “After the deaths of plants and animals, you will die of the great loneliness in your hearts.” An appeal has been filed against this death sentence. This book contains a few passages from the defence counsel’s speech.”

Here to Stay: A Collection of Pieces on a Common Theme of Human Tenacity by John Hersey (£25.50)Publisher: Hamish Hamilton — 1962Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine of the dust wrapper with a little spotting. Price. Clipped. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Text complete, clean and tight but slightly musty.Description: From the cover: “In Here To Stay John Hersey tells of episodes in the past 20 years in which Man has courageously risen above desperate situations and shown his determination to survive despite the threats of the nuclear age.

Appropriately Mr. Hersey first tells the story of John Kennedy’s heroism in rescuing the crew of his P. T. boat, sunk by the Japanese, seventeen years before he became President. He ends with his famous Hiroshima, the story of the survivors of the first atomic bombing, written from personal investigation, with horrifying detail and compassionate indignation.

Between these two pieces we read of several wartime incidents, a Jew’s sufferings in Auschwitz, a crippled G.I.’s difficulties in adjusting himself to civilian life, the rehabilitation of a G.I. paralysed with fright, and the adventures of two Poles who survived persecution. In addition there are the extraordinary story of the old lady marooned on a rooftop amidst floods caused by a tornado; a study of that great American, President Truman, and a most moving account of an escape from Budapest in 1956.

All John Hersey’s books have had a serious purpose. A Bell for Adano drew attention to Italy’s plight; The Wall studied the Polish Jews’ struggle against tyranny; The War Lover exposed the war mentality; The Child Buyer showed up the exploitation of youthful talent. Here To Stay is a stirring reminder of our inherent ability to face the challenge of extinction which now faces the world.”

At the end of most chapters, you’ll find a list of “Questions for Getting Started” that will help you to identify what steps you need to take — and what resources you may already have in place —t o accomplish the project segment presented in that chapter. In addition, throughout the book, the authors apply each principle and technique to a practical case study — a groundbreaking project conducted by a wedding-services business — with checklists and diagrams to clarify every application. Project Management Practitioner’s Handbook is an A-to-Z resource that gives all managers practical, step-by-step access to the experience and insight of professional project managers.

Domesday Book: Wiltshire by Caroline & Frank Thorn (£18.00)Publisher: Phillimore — 1979Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0850331595]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Number 6 in the series. Illustrated by way of: Maps [2]; Tables;

From the cover: “DOMESDAY BOOK is a statistical survey of England in 1086 A. D. It is a census of the population and productive resources of the country, of their value and of who held them. It is difficult to exaggerate the importance of the availability of a cheap edition of this fundamental source, for the first time in 900 years.

The text has only once been set and printed, in 1783, in an edition of 1,250 copies; many of which have not survived, so that extant examples are expensive and relatively inaccessible. Translations of differing form and accuracy have been published for most counties, but many are out of print and others are only available as part of large and costly volumes, usually with many technical terms untranslated.

The present edition corrects the few errors detected in the 18th-century setting of the Latin text and provides a parallel, uniform, modern English translation; with a map, indices and an explanation of the technical terms for each county. This edition will be of service to those interested in local history and topography, and to scholars who wish either to re-examine the evidence on which modern discussion rests, or to explore the very many questions of social and administrative structure which have received less attention.

Domesday Book was unmatched in Europe for many centuries, the product of a sophisticated and experienced English administration, fully exploited by the Conqueror’s commanding energy. Its name is known to everyone — and everyone can now have access to its text and, within the limitations of contemporary scholarship, its meaning.”

Planned Beef Production by Stephen Williams; C. David Edgar; (£18.00)Publisher: Crosby Lockwood & Son — 1966Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Ex-library with few marks. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges with a rough nearly closed tear to the leading edge of the lower panel. Heavily faded at the spine of the dust wrapper. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “THE production of beef cattle is complex and is becoming increasingly so. Technical changes have been applied to the once simple matter of having herds of breeding cattle in some places and yards of fattening bullocks in others. Sometimes they were on the same farm, but often there was a considerable distance between them and this was bridged by the cattle dealer and the store market. New concepts of breeding by artificial insemination led to the replacement of some dual-purpose cattle by some others. The reds and the roans became black and white, or just black; and the buffs are now making an appearance. Physical and chemical methods of dehorning have jostled with genetic advances in polling. Competition between the churn stand and the calf pen in a period of falling milk prices led to early weaning in its various guises and to the greater use of milk substitutes and the earlier feeding of concentrates. Multiple suckling, carefully supervised by expensive labour, has led to mass suckling with labour charges spread over more cattle. More recently there have been interesting developments with barley fed and battery beef with forage flowing untouched from silo to stock, a trickle of concentrates being fed on the way. The time has come for an appraisal of the multitude of methods in beef production and the many differing ideas regarding suitable breeds down to the introduction of the Charolais.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5½".

Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges, slightly tanned. A nice copy of a not-so-common title.Description: From the cover: “Are management consultants the answer to a businessman’s prayer? Or are they unprincipled rogues who, for an exorbitant fee, tell a company nothing it does not already know and saddle it with a lot of elaborate, unnecessary and expensive procedures?

To answer these extreme questions and many more between, Laura Tatham has obtained first-hand evidence from dozens of consultants and from as many clients, both satisfied and dissatisfied. This book is the result of her inquiries.

An impartial survey, The Efficiency Experts examines in detail what management consultants are, how they work and what they set out to accomplish. It suggests ways in which the businessman can make best use of consultants, and how he can assess whether or not a firm is likely to do a good job. A number of case histories describe both successful and unsuccessful consulting assignments.”

From the cover: “Globalization, population growth, and resource depletion are drawing increased attention to the importance of common resources such as forests, water resources, and fisheries. It is critical that these resources be governed in an equitable and sustainable way.

The Commons in the New Millennium presents cutting-edge research in common property theory and provides an overview and progress report on common property research. The book analyzes new problems that owners, managers, policy makers, and analysts face in managing natural commons. It examines recent findings about the physical characteristics of the commons, their complexity and interconnectedness, and the role of social capital. It also provides empirical studies and suggestions for sustainable development.

The topics discussed include the role of financial, political, and social capital in deforestation, community efforts to gain political influence in Indonesia, the Maine lobster industry, outcomes of the implementation of individual transferable quotas in New Zealand and Iceland fisheries, and design of multilateral emissions trading for regional air pollution and global warming.”

A Century in Oil: The “Shell” Transport and Trading Company 1897-1997 by Stephen Howarth (£16.50)Publisher: London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson — 1997Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition.

Text complete, clean and tight but with a hint of tanning to the very margins of the leaves. A nice copy.Description: Illustrated by way of: Cutaways; Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Colour Photographs; Diagrams; Maps; Illustrated endpapers and blanks; From the cover: “No other single industry has affected 20th-century civilization more rapidly or more profoundly than that of oil. The century was nearly half over when the nuclear age began and the computer revolution swept the world. Throughout the 20th century, oil has been the great enabler providing from one basic resource a rainbow range of products.

Based upon unrestricted access to company archives, A Century in Oil marks the 100th anniversary of The “Shell” Transport and Trading Company one of the parents of the Royal Dutch/Shell Group. By most measurements Shell is the largest oil enterprise in the world, and the largest organization of any kind in Europe. In a phenomenal industry, Shell could fairly claim to be a phenomenon in its own right — global in scope but always human in scale. Century in Oil tells the frank and dramatic story of a company — daring, inventive, and sometimes controversial — whose work has touched, and continues to touch, all our daily lives.”

For many years the advantages to be derived from the use of “gas oil” have been realised particularity where peak loads are concerned but, more recently considerations of cost and availability of gasmaking materials, and increasing demands for town gas have led to the rapid development of gasmaking techniques in which a wide variety of other petroleum products can be employed. The purpose of this book is to describe the main processes of gasmaking, the equipment involved and the characteristics of the gases produced.

From the arrival of the Europeans m the sixteenth century to the final defeat of the native Americans in the nineteenth, climate and competition for the resources of nature explain why men fortified where they did, campaigned as they did and were battlefields where the control drawn to the battlefields where the control of the continent was decided.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

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.”

Who Do You Think You Are? Trace Your Family History Back To The Tudors by Anton Gill & Nick Barratt (£14.00)Publisher: HarperCollins — 2006Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition.

Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “History is not just a series of dates and a list of monarchs to learn and recite in the classroom. The past is alive, brimming with personality, and filled with the people who make up your family history.

Whilst previous genealogy guides have centred their search around the birth, death and marriage records going back to 1837, Trace Your Family History Back to the Tudors extends its reach by more than 300 years to the time of the Tudors. With expert help and advice, and with the amazing celebrity stories to inspire you, this book helps you to bring your undiscovered past to life.

Were your relatives around when Anne Boleyn lost her head? Which member of your family found themselves arriving on the shores of a strange land called Britain after months smuggled aboard a ship from the Caribbean? Were your ancestors watching as the capital burnt to the ground in the Great Fire of London?

By exploring areas such as migration, licensing and employment and looking in places and at records that you never thought of, this book helps you to bring to life the world in which your ancestors lived, making sense of exactly who they were and what their lives were really like.”

Trouble Spots: The World Atlas of Strategic Information by Andrew Duncan & Michael Opatowski (£13.50)Publisher: Stroud: Sutton Publishing — 2000Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0750921714]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Maps; Tables;

From the cover: “The world in which we live is an increasingly dangerous place, subject to many widely differing threats that range from nuclear weapons proliferation to chemical and biological warfare, and from international crime to tribal genocide. Trouble Spots explains, through concise authoritative text and clear graphics, the causes of conflict — whether it is currently in progress, in abeyance or imminent unless preventative measures are taken.

Thematic problems such as global warming and weapons of mass destruction are reviewed, but Trouble Spots focuses mainly on unrest of a regional nature, such as in the Middle East, the Indian Sub-Continent, and in East and South-East Asia. Maps are used as a key to each topic, showing not simply the geographical features which influence military or humanitarian activity, but also the locations of the various factors contributing to the problem, for example population ethnicity or religious breakdown.

The authors give a short historical background to each problem together with a summary of recent events and steps taken by participants and third or international parties to bring about a solution. They do not attempt to criticise or offer answers, but instead concentrate on the advantages and disadvantages of possible options. They also assess the likelihood of violence spreading from the area of original outbreak. The trouble spots considered in this book are not necessarily areas of military conflict: several issues with purely political and economic implications are covered, for example the availability of vital resources such as oil and water.

Trouble Spots is meticulously researched and richly illustrated with specially commissioned maps and diagrams, and supported by a selection of evocative photographs from around the world. It is essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand the causes of conflict in the contemporary world.”

Edges of the textblock lightly spotted.Description: The History of Israel from the Exodus to the Fall of the Second Temple. The persistence of the nation of Israel through the centuries, leaderless, landless, fugitive, persecuted, yet always surviving. And often itself producing world-leaders is one of the outstanding phenomena of our modern world. But why only Israel? Why not her kinsfolk and neighbours, the Edomites, Moabites and Ammonites, for example? The Israelites had their unhesitating answer to this question: it lay in the distinctive features of their faith, the worship of the God of their fathers.Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾". 254 pages.
