Oskar Kokoschka 1886-1980 by Richard Calvocoressi & Katharina Schulz (£24.00)Publisher: New York: The Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation — 1986Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0892070595]Condition: Very Good. Single reading crease to the spine which is lightly knocked at the head, wraps a little age-toned. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Contains: Black & white photographs; Colour plates; Portrait to the frontispiece;

From the cover: “This volume has been published to accompany the centenary exhibition of Oskar Kokoschka’s work at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, first seen in somewhat different form at the Tate Gallery, London, and the Kunsthaus Zurich. The great individualist of twentieths-century art, Kokoschka in his painting combines elements of Expressionism, Symbolism and the Baroque, resulting in portraits and landscapes characterized by heightened colour, emotional intensity and a strong sense of vitality and movement. Kokoschka is best remembered for his incisive portraits of the Viennese intelligentsia and bourgeoisie painted during the last years of the Habsburg empire, but also for a series of breathtaking views of European cities done mainly in the twenties and thirties. The catalogue has been written by Richard Calvocoressi of the Tate Gallery. With 184 full page colour plates, it is a complete record of the most comprehensive Kokoschka exhibition ever presented in the United States.”

The Lost Ships of Guadalcanal: Exploring the Ghost Fleet of the South Pacific by Robert D. Ballard with Rick Archbold (£12.50)Publisher: New York: Warner Books — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0446516368]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper, more heavily to the top corners which are near frayed, which is sunned at the spine. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “IRON BOTTOM SOUND… IT GETS ITS NAME FROM ALL the ships that sank there. From August to November of 1942 the tropical waters off the small island of Guadalcanal were the scene of some of the fiercest sea battles of World War II. Fifty years later, Robert Ballard, the man who discovered the Titanic and the Bismarck, took his exploration team to Guadalcanal. Their goal was not one ship but an entire naval battlefield. On board were some of the men who had served on those ships that now lay beneath Iron Bottom Sound. The memories of these survivors help tell a powerful, poignant story of men and ships and war.

The Lost Ships of Guadalcanal re-creates the whole story of the campaign that changed the course of the Pacific war. For all the fame of its air and land battles, Guadalcanal is also a compelling story of sailors and warships. In fact, more Americans died in Guadalcanal waters than on land. The terror and confusion of night naval action is conveyed here in gripping chapters that describe first the bitter American defeat in the Battle of Savo Island and then the struggle to eventual victory in the climactic Naval Battle of Guadalcanal. We then descend in Ballard’s submarine to view scenes of American, Australian, and Japanese ships lying together on the ocean floor, their guns still eerily pointing at each other.

With over 300 illustrations, this book has all the pictorial richness that helped make bestsellers of Robert Ballard’s two previous books, The Discovery of the Titanic and The Discovery of the Bismarck. Haunting pictures of the wrecks are paired with photographs of the ships in their prime; a spectacular full-page foldout reveals the USS Quincy and the Canberra, painted in accurate detail by maritime artist Ken Marschall. Full-colour maps and diagrams plus a host of paintings and present-day photographs help to both re-create this extraordinary chapter in the history of the Pacific war and convey the excitement of modern underwater exploration.”

In Search of Myths and Heroes by Michael Wood (£11.50)Publisher: British Broadcasting Corporation [B.B.C./BBC] — 2005Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0563521872]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper pulled at the foot of the upper panel with a short closed tear. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “In this entrancing new book, historian Michael Wood journeys to some of the remotest places on earth in search of four of our most powerful myths: Shangri-La, Jason and the Golden Fleece, the Queen of Sheba and King Arthur. His adventures take him from the fantastic landscapes of Tibet and the mountains of Georgia to the coasts of Ethiopia and Yemen. Michael asks why these famous legends still captivate us as he goes in search not just of the historical past and literal truth but also the mythic past.

In the first of these journeys, Michael investigates the legend of the hidden valley of Shangri-La -a place where the ancient wisdom of humanity is preserved for future ages — immortalized in James Milton’s novel and Frank Copra’s Hollywood movie.

The Greek legend of Jason’s search for the Golden Fleece is the ultimate quest, older even than Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey — but was there really an expedition beyond the limits of the known world back in the mists of prehistory, before the Trojan War?

Travelling from Jerusalem to the Horn of Africa, Michael uncovers the legends of the Queen of Sheba, King Solomon and the Ark of the Covenant, stories found in the Jewish and Christian Bible, the Ethiopian Book of Kings and the Muslim Koran.

Finally, Michael travels through the Celtic countries of the British Isles in search of the tales of King Arthur, the Knights of the Round Table and the Holy Grail. Where do these stories come from? And why are we still fascinated by the once and future king?

Illustrated with a wonderful series of specially commissioned photographs by the Himalayan photographer and mountaineer Steve Razzetti, In Search of Myths and Heroes is at once a book of great journeys, a historical adventure and an exploration of some of humanity’s most enduring myths.”

Married To Melanesia by Muriel Jones (£9.50)Publisher: The Travel Book Club — 1976Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine. Leans. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Drawings; Maps;

From the cover: “We were married after three years at opposite ends of the world… We then, too rapidly for comfort, made off in a snowstorm for the South Seas… All this we imprudently did in our late forties. Thus Muriel Jones introduces her account of how she came to start her married life in the Solomon Islands, whose impact was traumatic, perhaps just because we were not in our first youth or innocent of other tropical experience.

St Peter’s College was the only thing at Siota; there was no store and the only post office on the island was so difficult of access that I never visited it… we ourselves did most of the postal business quite informally at our end of the island. It is not surprising that even high-ranking visitors tended to arrive looking like ship-wrecked sailors. If one was ill enough to see a doctor one was, on the whole, too ill to be subjected to several hours of sun or rain in an open boat and a probable night en route. There is, too, the account of the old lady whose family, on her death, wanted to bury her in a coffin instead of the customary mat. Poor old lady; at the end of all these exertions, the coffin with her in it stood in church for the funeral, uneasily supported on two rickety small tables from our sitting room, mutely exhorting us to STOW AWAY FROM BOILERS.

Muriel Jones tells the unusual story of her five Melanesian years, of the impact of Christianity on a pagan people, of her husband’s college and its move to another island, of the students, the islands and their animals and exotic vegetation, of the islanders (nine tenths of whom live in communities ranging from twenty to two hundred people) and of their changing way of life. Her story takes one about as far as it is possible to go from an urban civilisation and in telling it she reveals the resources of her own character.”

Morocco by David Flusfeder (£9.50)Publisher: Fourth Estate — 2000Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1857029607]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little faded with some lifting laminate at the joins. Dust wrapper slightly ruffled at the edges with staining to the top edge of the reverse. Edges of the textblock lightly tanned.Description: From the cover: “Somewhere in Europe, these events took place. In a city threatened by invasion and inhabited by a divided population, Gloria, an ambitious young psychologist, is on a mission to cure men’s souls. When Solomon Heller, a notorious tycoon with digestive problems, asks to be her only client, Gloria acquiesces, although it’s not easy to give up a potentially fruitful relationship with her favourite client, the actor Igo Sym.

Everything is changed by war, the city is transformed, and Gloria abandons her profession — or tries to — but Sym and Heller, even in absence, continue to influence Gloria’s increasingly dangerous world of conspirators, collaborators and stars.

Paranoia, comedy, glamour and heartache: Morocco is imbued with the personality of an appealing narrator whose frailty and courage force her into situations beyond her control. In precise and sensual prose, David Flusfeder has written a novel both dramatically entertaining and morally challenging, on the efforts made to live ordinary lives in extraordinary times.”

Okinawa 1945: The Stalingrad of the Pacific by George Feifer (£9.50)Publisher: Tempus — 2005Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0752433245]Condition: Near Fine.Description: From the cover: “As the siege of Stalingrad was the ultimate scene of carnage at the Eastern Front, the battle of Okinawa proved to be the bloodiest of the Pacific war. Almost the entire Japanese kamikaze effort of the Second World War was directed against the Americans at Okinawa. At the beginning of the battle on 1 April 1945, over one million Americans, Japanese and Okinawans were centred on the small Pacific island; by 23 June, when the Japanese commanders committed seppuku, 250,000 civilians and soldiers were dead. More people died during the battle of Okinawa than in the ensuing bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined. Okinawa 1945 offers a stunning account of the last major campaign of the Second World War and the largest land-sea-air engagement. Superbly researched and extraordinarily detailed, Okinawa 1945 is told at the level of the participants themselves, soldiers and civilians alike, with the dramatic stories of three individuals running through the entire account.”Notes: Size: Trade Paperback (9¼" x 6"). 447 pages.

The Christian Experience of the Holy Spirit by H. Wheeler Robinson (£9.50)Publisher: Nisbet & Co. — 1932Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with heavy tanning to the spine. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Leans. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: From the preface: “FIFTEEN years ago, in the preface to the second edition of my book on “The Christian Doctrine of Man”, I expressed the hope of writing a similar book on the doctrine of the Holy Spirit. Since then, the subject has been constantly in my mind. In 1916 I conducted a fruitful “Seminar” in it, for a group of old pupils and friends. In the winter of 1916-171 gave courses of lectures to the Free Church ministers of Leeds and Birmingham, Sheffield and Liverpool, on “Christian Experience and the Holy Spirit”. These lectures formed the first draft of the present volume, though it has been entirely rewritten within the last three years. Much of it has been debated in conferences with Anglican or Free Church ministers. Chapter I was discussed in 1923 by the London Society for the Study of Religion, Chapter XI in 1927 by the Oxford Society of Historical Theology. These facts are named to show that, whatever the shortcomings of the book, its substance has been frequently tested amongst those who are intimately concerned with the subject, and I need not say that I have learnt much from my many fellow-students.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

The House of Blue Mangoes by David Davidar (£9.50)Publisher: Weidenfeld & Nicolson — 2002Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1861591969]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Lightly rubbed at the corners of the wrappers.Description: From the cover: “This is a novel about two things: a family, and a village. The village, Chevathar, is set on the banks of India’s southernmost river, at the point where it flows into the Gulf of Mannar. It’s an idyllic setting, typical of villages on the Coromandel Coast. There are temples, a fort, a church (for, in this part of South India, many of the villagers are Christian), the big house where the Dorai family live, a beach, and groves of mango trees — the blue mangoes of the title.

The story begins in the last year of the nineteenth century with Solomon Dorai. As the headman of Chevathar, he is desperately trying to hold together the fraying ends of village life at a time of huge social and political unease. The spectre of caste unrest hangs about the South, threatening everything that Solomon holds dear — family, land, prosperity. When violence finally erupts, it takes Solomon, and the traditional structure of village life with it.

Three generations of Dorais come and go in the village by the sea, winning and losing the battle for Chevathar. There are Solomon’s sons, the dazzling athletic Aaron and the studious Daniel, both exiled by their father’s death but in different ways, both determined to make their mark on the world. And there is Daniel’s son, Kannan, cast out of the paradise that his father creates on the bones of the old Chevathar. Davidar has created an exuberant tale, set in a land of extremes, at a time of enormous historical change. The history of India ebbs and flows with the story of the Dorai family, their fortunes inevitably linked to it. The early struggles for independence, the emergence of Gandhi and the Congress Party, World War and finally the new India — the great events of the 20th century form the backdrop to the story of an extraordinary family.

This is David Davidar’s first novel. It’s vigorous and brilliantly coloured, teeming with a host of vibrant characters, and dominated by the sea and mountains and tree-bound landscape of the deep south of India.”

Globalisation for the Common Good by Kamran Mofid (£6.50)Publisher: Shepheard-Walwyn — 2002Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0856831956]Condition: Near Fine.Description: From the cover: “Today, despite many significant achievements in science, technology, medicine, transportation and communications, and a vast increase in world trade, the globalised world economy is facing serious socio-economic, political, cultural and environmental problems, of potentially catastrophic proportions. Despite numerous attempts to raise living standards through market economics and free trade, the dire poverty of billions of people and the widening gap between rich and poor, both within and between countries, point to the failure of these policies. Consequently, we face global crises of inequality, injustice, poverty, marginalisation, exclusion and environmental degradation. There has also been a huge rise in crime, corruption and now terrorism. Economic and political failures have resulted in mass migrations across national borders, causing further problems of xenophobia, fear, mistrust, racism and intolerance which are threatening the fabric of societies all over the world. So, what has gone wrong? The author, a professional economist, argues that the root of the problem lies in the way economics is taught, with its narrow focus on ‘self-interest’ and ‘competition’ as the sole motivating factors in economic activity. This ignores many important elements such as the common good and cooperation, which are essential for a prosperous and harmonious society. Globalisation today is regarded by many as a means of securing for richer individuals, corporations and nations an ever larger slice of the wealth produced, polluting the environment in their greedy pursuit of more, and locking billions into hopeless poverty.

Turning the Tide: Decisive Battles Of The Second World War by Nigel Cawthorne (£6.50)Publisher: Index — 2004Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 9781841931128]Condition: Near Fine.Description: From the cover: “The Second World War was the final global conflict of the twentieth century. It involved more combatants, and a wider range of battlefield terrain than any other conflict in history, from the frozen plains of Russia to the baking Libyan Desert, and from the atolls of the Pacific to the skies over Britain. In Turning the Tide, Nigel Cawthorne has taken a fresh look at the crucial battles which decided the outcome of the Second World War, beginning with the evacuation of Dunkirk in 1940, a feat that boosted the morale of a nation during its darkest hour, and reaching a climactic end with the final bloody reckoning between the Red Army and the Third Reich amongst the ruins of Berlin.”Notes: Size: B Format (7¾" x 5¼"). 240 pages.
