To Find A Golden Pony by Amanda Gavin [Clodagh Micaela Gibson Jarvie] (£278.00)Publisher: J. M. Dent & Sons — 1965Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the spine ends and corners with corresponding grazing to the dustwrapper. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Text complete, clean and tight. A pleasant copy of an uncommon title. Description: From the cover: “This is a pony book with a difference. It deals sensitively with a young girl’s companionship with animals, and how she learns to manage them while at the same time developing self-reliance during a period of delicate readjustment. Jo Garrett is five when her mother dies, and her father wisely sends her away from his Suffolk farm to live with cousins in Sussex. So, until she is ten, she comes under the spell of ponies, caring for them as well as riding them. She then returns to the farm, and her father is pleased to notice what a self-confident child she has become, with definite ideas of her own as to what she wants from life. Jo’s personality is also contrasted with all the others in the story — both human and animal — who come fully alive as individuals in this entertaining account of country life. Finally, Jo’s slow adjustment to the idea of her father’s remarriage is described with understanding and insight..”Notes: Jacket designed by Elisabeth Grant. Illustrated by Elisabeth Grant.

Knights of the Black Cross: Hitler's Panzerwaffe and Its Leaders by Bryan Perrett (£58.50)Publisher: Robert Hale — 1986Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0709028067]Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine of the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “The German Armoured Corps — the Panzerwaffe — was instrumental in the mighty conquests of the Nazis between 1939 and 1942 and in the remaining years of the war it provided the very backbone of Germany’s defence. Although its strength never exceeded one-fifth of the German Army, the commitment of the Panzerwaffe’s officers to the traditional Annihilation Concept made an enormous impact on the Second World War, particularly on the Eastern Front. The titanic struggles which took place there, after the early victories in Poland, the West and the Balkans, demonstrated the German tank soldiers’ superior tactical abilities and provided the basis of Soviet war theories to this day.

Bryan Perrett’s meticulously researched and incisive account tells the story of this remarkable band of soldiers, the evolution of their tactics and the development of their superlative fighting vehicles. An authoritative study which will fascinate the military expert and general reader alike.”

Princeton and the Republic, 1768-1822: The Search For a Christian Enlightenment in the Era of Samuel Stanhope Smith by Mark A. Noll (£54.00)Publisher: Princeton University Press — 1989Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0691047642]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: From the cover: “Widely viewed during the Revolutionary period as a champion of both republicanism and evangelical Calvinism, the College of New Jersey nonetheless experienced great inner turmoil as its leaders tried to support the stability of the new nation by integrating sound principles of science and faith. Focusing on three presidencies — those of John Witherspoon, Samuel Stanhope Smith, and Ashbel Green — Mark Noll relates the dramatic institutional history of what is now Princeton University, a history closely related to the intellectual development of the early republic. Noll examines in detail the student rebellions and the trustees’ disillusionment with the college, which, despite Wither-spoon’s and Stanhope Smith’s efforts to harmonize traditional Reformed faith with a moderate Scottish enlightenment, led to the establishment of a separate Presbyterian seminary in 1812.

As a cultural and intellectual history of the early United States, this book deepens our understanding of how science, religion, and politics interacted during the period. Close attention is given to the Scottish philosophy of common sense, which Stanhope Smith developed into an educational vision that he hoped would encourage a stable social order.”

The Cuvier-Geoffrey Debate: French Biology in the Decades Before Darwin by Toby A. Appel (£52.00)Publisher: New York & Oxford: Oxford University Press — 1987Binding: Hardback [ISBN: 0195041380]Condition: Near Fine. Description: Illustrated by way of: Appendices [4];

From the cover: “For scientists, no event better represents the contest between form and function as the chief organizing principle of life as the debate between Georges Cuvier and Etienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire. This book presents the first comprehensive study of the celebrated French scientific controversy that focused the attention of naturalists in the first decades of the nineteenth century on the conflicting claims of teleology, morphology, and evolution, which ultimately contributed to the making of Darwin’s theory.

This history describes not only the scientific dimensions of the controversy and its impact on individuals and institutions, but also examines the meaning of the debate for culture and society in the years before Darwin.”

Back to the Drawing Board: Aircraft That Flew But Never Took Off by Bill Gunston (£44.00)Publisher: Motorbooks International — 1996Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0760303169]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Diagrams;

From the cover: “An aircraft designer would, quite obviously, never design an aeroplane that he felt would be either dangerous or unsuitable for its purpose. But designers are so often the victims of accountant’s reports, committee recommendations and severe movement of the goal-posts, that the end-product that takes to the air bears little resemblance to his original concept. This book is a study of some of the examples that, for some reason, became notorious for their inability to fulfil their raison d’etre.

Each aircraft that is included is looked at in depth from several aspects. What was the intended purpose of the aeroplane? Why did the designer reach his conclusion? Why did the machine fail to live up to expectations? The answers to these questions makes for fascinating reading and gives a tantalising insight into the world of aircraft design and construction over the last century.”

Princeton and the Republic, 1768-1822: The Search For a Christian Enlightenment in the Era of Samuel Stanhope Smith by Mark A. Noll (£44.00)Publisher: Princeton University Press — 1989Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0691047642]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Faint toning to the top edges of the panels otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: From the cover: “Widely viewed during the Revolutionary period as a champion of both republicanism and evangelical Calvinism, the College of New Jersey nonetheless experienced great inner turmoil as its leaders tried to support the stability of the new nation by integrating sound principles of science and faith. Focusing on three presidencies — those of John Witherspoon, Samuel Stanhope Smith, and Ashbel Green — Mark Noll relates the dramatic institutional history of what is now Princeton University, a history closely related to the intellectual development of the early republic. Noll examines in detail the student rebellions and the trustees’ disillusionment with the college, which, despite Wither-spoon’s and Stanhope Smith’s efforts to harmonize traditional Reformed faith with a moderate Scottish enlightenment, led to the establishment of a separate Presbyterian seminary in 1812.

As a cultural and intellectual history of the early United States, this book deepens our understanding of how science, religion, and politics interacted during the period. Close attention is given to the Scottish philosophy of common sense, which Stanhope Smith developed into an educational vision that he hoped would encourage a stable social order.”

Twentieth Century Industrial Archaeology by Michael Stratton & Barrie Trinder (£44.00)Publisher: London: E & FN Spon — 2000Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0419246800]Condition: Near Fine. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Tables;

From the cover: “This book offers a new view of twentieth century Britain. At one level it is a guidebook to the artefacts, the buildings and the landscapes that have shaped our civilisation of the past hundred years. In the tradition of landscape history established by W. G. Hoskins and Maurice Beresford, the authors offer journeys along by-passes, amongst the mounds where ordinance factories once stood, through industrial estates and garden suburbs, and to chemical manufacturing complexes where the public rarely venture. This book identifies the places which have shaped modern industrial Britain, the twentieth century equivalents of Cromford, Ironbridge, Blaenavon and New Lanark, and shows how the observation of subtle features in the landscape can illuminate the recent history of almost any town or stretch of countryside. Landscapes are re-populated and re-animated through the skilful use of reminiscences and observations, and by drawing on process recording by professional archaeologists, and throughout the book there is an awareness of the links between places where goods were produced and the museums where they are now displayed.

The book also shows how the archaeological record raises questions about some of the major issues of twentieth century British history, the production of munitions in two world wars, the booms in house building of the inter-war period and of the years between 1953 and 1973, the nature of coal-mining communities, and the take-up of scientific and technological innovations.”

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.”

Growing from the Suffragist movement, the National Union of Townswomen’s Guilds has continued to fight for better educational, professional and creative opportunities for women, surviving times of political upheaval and social change and maintaining a loyal and enthusiastic membership.

The Diamond Jubilee marks a pinnacle of achievement for NUTG, and After the Vote has been written as a celebration of the first sixty years. The story of the movement’s development is illustrated with archive photographs and anecdotes which will stir memories among long-standing TG members and will serve to remind newer Townswomen of the achievements of their pioneering predecessors.”

Measurement of Responsibility: A Study of Work, Payment and Individual Capacity by Elliott Jaques (£33.00)Publisher: Tavistock Publications — 1956Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with several short tears, a little loss at the spine ends and a 1" closed tear to the head of the upper panel. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Small name sticker to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: From the cover: “THE MEASUREMENT OF RESPONSIBILITY presents perhaps the most funda mental approach yet achieved to the recurring individual and social stresses which disturb the industrial scene. Its theme is that one of the central factors underlying these disturbances is the absence of any objective and agreed method of assessing the re sponsibility carried by individuals at their work.

In the course of practical work by the author in collaboration with members of the Glacier Metal Com pany (an engineering concern), a re definition of the problem has emerged. What is experienced by individuals as level or weight or size of responsi bility has been observed to be con nected solely with the discretion they are required to exercise in doing their work. It has furthermore been dis covered that level of responsibility can be measured objectively and pre cisely by the maximum span of time during which an individual is expected to exercise discretion on his own account until his use of discretion is subjected to review.

By using this measurement — which he terms the time-span of discretion — Dr. Jaques has noted that individuals carrying the same maximum time-span in their work demand—quite independently — as a fair and just return for their work, precisely the same earnings and the same status, regardless of the type of work con cerned. He concludes from these findings that an unrecognized wage and salary structure is operated in tuitively in industry. But because it is unrecognized, departures from it are likely. And it is precisely such de partures which lead to trouble.

In the light of his findings, the author re-examines the meaning of work, of payment for work, and of the capacity of individuals to exercise discretion and discharge responsibility.

The methods described, and the results already obtained from their use, may indicate a route towards the resolution of some aspects of the industrial unrest and individual dis satisfaction with work which are such a crippling feature of modern industrial life. The book, in style as well as in content, is intended for economists, sociologists, political scientists, psychologists, and other social scientists — as well as industrial ists, trade unionists, government officials, and other administrators who are concerned with these problems.”

This full-length treatment of the subject is based largely on recent fieldwork and asserts that these carvings should be interpreted as a series of symbolic messages that are shared between monuments, artefacts and natural places in the landscape. The author discusses the cultural setting of the rock carvings and the ways in which they can be interpreted in relation to ancient land use, the creation of ritual monuments and the burial of the dead.”

From the preface: “In recent years has grown up the study of pedology, or soil science, which seeks to study and classify soils, to describe them, name them, and trace their development, but the pedologist is only concerned incidentally with the creatures which make the soil their permanent home. This book presents a different picture. It gets inside this strange world and analyses its structure and how it has developed; the circulation of water and gases which give the soil an atmosphere and a succession of climates quite different from those of the air above. It deals with the varied forms of life made possible or impossible by the varied conditions and so to a concept of the soil providing habitats of differing and frequently contrasted characters.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 6".
