It was an upset in the routine of 12 Regent Crescent, but she maintained to herself that she had enjoyed it.

She bought herself a new hat to wear when she went to meet the child at the station. The hat was to be a symbol, something that marked the beginning of the change that must come to the house with Elisabeth’s arrival.

Henry, her husband, would see her in her new role of aunt, a being set in authority, a fount of comfort, for of course she would soon establish the right relationship with this unknown child.

It was a good thing, it must be a good thing, that she should have charge of Grace’s daughter for a while…”

A Textbook of Money by S. Korteweg; F. A. G. Keesing (£14.50)Publisher: Longmans, Green & Co. — 1952Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine. Price Clipped. Ex-library with remnants to the first blank, library plate to the last blank, stamp to the title page and the reverse. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Light spotting to the blanks and pastedowns. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise.Description: First British Edition. [First Published: First published under the title of ‘Het Moderne Geldwezen’ by N.V. Noord-Hollandsche Uitgevers Maatschappij, 1945] From the cover: “The publication of a text-book on money cannot be justified by the lack of written material on the subject. Books, articles and learned discussions on money exist in abun dance, and every newcomer to the scene should explain what particular niche he intends his book to occupy.

The authors of this book have been struck by the fact that money not only presents difficult problems at the esoteric heights of academic polemics, but offers severe ob stacles to those who want to penetrate its somewhat more practical complexities. This book is aimed at the latter category, which includes both undergraduates and interested laymen. Any claim for originality is based on the didactic qualities of the book rather than on the novelty of its conclusions.

The book does not presuppose any prior knowledge about monetary problems, but starts at the beginning, and, developing its subject in a step-by-step fashion, strives to impart to its readers an adequate under standing of current monetary evolution. It explains the technical and institutional as pects of money against an historical back ground, discusses the theoretical relations between the flow of money and the flow of goods, and proceeds to an analysis of present-day monetary policies. Its first part confines itself to a country’s internal monetary problems, while the second part introduces the complications arising from economic relations with other countries. Its final part outlines the growth of monetary theory, and provides a link with more specialized studies in this field.”

Television and Radio: Everybody's Soapbox by Bruce Parker; Nigel Farrell; (£14.50)Publisher: Blandford Press — 1983Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0713713062]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Top edges of the dust wrapper slightly ruffled. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with cartoons. From the cover: “The chance to appear on a radio or television programme is the opportunity of a lifetime to speak to a mass audience. Yet how many people appreciate the value of such an offer, or really know how to make the most of it? With the expansion of broadcasting in the 1980s there will be more air time available to members of the public in scores of programmes, particularly those put out by regional and local television and radio stations. Nearly everyone has something to gain by a chance to appear on the air: the father searching for his teenage daughter, the secretary of the local drama group which is putting on an unusual play, the harassed mother seeking action about the damp walls of her council house, or the managing director who wants a little publicity for his firm’s award-winning product. Everybody’s Soapbox explains in an entertaining way not only how to use your time on the air effectively but how to go about obtaining it in the first place. The authors take a detailed and often humorous look into what happens behind the scenes of broadcasting. Some of the pitfalls are described, including the ones to avoid when being interviewed. Don Osmond’s cartoons complement the light-hearted but informative text. Much advice is provided, particularly for those who find themselves on the air for the first time. Radio and television techniques are revealed and the jargon is made clear. There is guidance on how to handle an interview and how best to present yourself. You can also find out the right way to deal with the film crew which may arrive at your house.”Notes: Illustrated by Don Osmond. Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

Jesus Loved Martha: The Housewife's Contacts with Jesus by George Sinker (£12.00)Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton — 1956Binding: Paperback Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with tears to the tail of the spine. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: 3rd impression. [First Edition: 1949]

From the cover: “The object of this book is to try to bring Jesus more vividly into your consciousness, continually throughout the dull, hard and often irritating routine of housekeeping. The title came to me, I believe, as an inspiration from Him of whom it speaks, and is a lovely sentence to repeat to yourself as you are cumbered about much serving.

It is an attempt to bring the practice of the presence of God into one of the hardest, humblest and often most thankless of jobs, but withal, as it will be seen, one of the most Christ-like. It is an attempt to link up the commonest things of everyday life with Jesus: to see Him in everything, and everything in Him.”

From grip to follow-through, from putting to power-driving, he shows the reader in practical terms how to build and improve his game. And more — The Lyle Way is designed as a total golf book. Beyond the mechanics of the swing, shot making variations and tactical choices, Sandy discusses a host of other topics such as practice techniques, the rules and etiquette of the game, how to help the youngster make a start, and the importance of fitness and even diet. Superb illustrations and clearly-written procedures make the book of enormous value to beginner and experienced player alike.”Notes: Size: 10" x 7¾".

Lightly bruised and rubbed at the head and tail of the boards.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “This is a true story of the spiritual quest of a modem-day pilgrim. At the dawn of a new millennium, religion no longer holds a monopoly on what is considered sacred: we are all on a journey of discovery in which we are finding meaning for ourselves. Throughout his adult life, Roger Housden has regularly dropped his ordinary routine and gone walkabout in remote and urban regions of the globe. What makes a journey sacred for Roger Housden is not whether it follows some ancient pilgrim’s path or leads to some holy shrine but whether it stirs our own authentic heart. It is sacred if it sensitizes the individual to the deeper realities of his own being and to the world about him.”Notes: Jacket designed by Timothy Hsu. Size: 9¼" x 7¼". 178 pages.

Price Clipped.Description: Illustrated by way of: Glossary; Black & White Photographs; Maps; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “The conflicts Keegan has chosen begin with Trafalgar in 1805, a classic and well-documented example of a ship-of- the-line battle. Next he turns to Jutland, posing very different problems for commander and seaman-alike. Then to the Battle of Midway, where he examines the particular role played by the aircraft carrier, with its ‘two societies’, that of the ship itself and that of the ‘air group’ elite which supplied its raison d’être.

Finally he examines the Battle of the Atlantic, in which he recreates a picture both of everyday life and operational routine within the boat that saw the last great technical transformation of naval operations, and ultimately the most significant — the submarine. The book concludes with a survey of how naval warfare may be expected to evolve in the future — with surface navies disappearing altogether.”

Letters from a Prince: Edward, Prince of Wales, to Mrs Freda Dudley Ward, March 1918 - January 1921 by Rupert Godfrey (£10.50)Publisher: Little, Brown & Co. — 1998Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0316646776]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with a small nick to the tail of the spine. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs;

From the cover: “Many books have been written about Edward VIII, later Duke of Windsor, and his devotion to Wallis Simpson, but little is known of the love affair which played such an important part in the King’s early years: the affair that, perhaps crucially, was to leave him still a bachelor in his early forties.

In 1996, however, a cache of 263 letters, previously thought lost, was discovered — the first of a total of over 2,000 written by Edward, then Prince of Wales, during his sixteen-year relationship with Freda Dudley Ward, the estranged wife of a Liberal MP, who came to dominate his life in the years after the Great War. Dating from just days after their first meeting, during an air raid in London in February 1918, until January 1921, these letters give remarkable new insights into Edward’s character, providing the reader with a greater understanding of how this fascinating figure could later give up his throne for love.

From his war service in Italy and France to family Christmases at Sandringham, from his Empire tours of Canada, New Zealand and Australia, to his day-to-day routine when in England, Edward repeatedly pours out his hopes and fears, revealing to Freda the deep-seated insecurities he felt as Prince of Wales, which he described as ‘the most difficult job in the world’. The letters recount his problems with his father, George V, and his close relationship with his brother, Bertie, later George VI. They record his insensitive reactions to the death of his epileptic brother, John, and the murder of the Czar of Russia, as well as giving new insights into his previous relationships with Marion Coke and Rosemary Leveson-Gower.

Many sides of the Prince’s character are shown -humility, when ‘moving in high circles’ after a visit to the King of Italy; penitence following a casual affair; boyish smugness at his reputation on the hunting field — but above all, his need for Freda’s love, support and encouragement to help him fulfil his duties.

With reproductions of photographs, cards and memorabilia which Edward also sent to his first great love, these extraordinary letters represent a hugely significant historical source about one of the most enigmatic figures of the twentieth century.”
