Gently faded at the spine of the dust wrapper. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “As a boy he had one ambition, to be a professional footballer and to play for England. He achieved not only this boyhood ambition but the footballer’s dream and the final accolade when England won the World Cup at Wembley on July 30th, 1966. From the coal-mining village of Ashington to becoming one of the greatest forwards England has ever produced has been a long, hard road and the journey makes a deeply compelling story. He rose to fame on the wave of sentiment which swept Europe following the tragic air disaster at Munich in 1958… a disaster which decimated the Manchester United team which had been so carefully moulded by Matt Busby. Since then Bobby has never faltered. He tells, with the help of Neil Burden-Smith, of his life, thoughts, of Manchester United, of three World Cups and what it was like to wear England’s white shirt and play with and against some of the greatest footballers the world has ever seen. He also describes in detail those feverish weeks last summer when the World Cup competition gripped the hearts and imaginations of people all over the world.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

It was a time of brash adolescent flash, and football — like everything else — was still learning, still finding its feet. Sport or showbiz? The football managers in this book are united not by any conventional notion of success, nor by association, appearance or achievement. The one thing they had in common was the desire, the need, to do things their way — regardless.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼". Light Blue boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 191 pages.

Lewis & Sybil by John Casson (£10.50)Publisher: Collins — 1972Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good+ — in Good Dustwrapper. Edges of the dustwrapper frayed, faded at the spine. Price Clipped. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Leans slightly. Edges of the textblock lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The lifelong partnership of Lewis Casson and Sybil Thorndike irradiated the English stage. It was a partnership that combined qualities rare — in themselves but rarer still in conjunction: the traditional with the adventurous, the gay with the high-minded, the sophisticated with the simple, superb natural endowments of voice, looks and intelligence with a no less superb technique. Through it all glowed a warmth of affection, a generosity of sympathy, a zest for life that shone as brightly in old age as it had in the days when Sybil, with four young children to look after, was earning ten shillings a performance at the Old Vie while Lewis was sending home all he could spare from his sergeant’s pay in the trenches. John Casson, their eldest son, himself a naval officer who became a producer and is the father of a young actress already well-known, has written a memoir that rises to its opportunities. Lewis and Sybil are as convincing in themselves as in any of the roles they have created. In one sense the book is the story of a brilliantly talented and strongly attached family over the sixty years that stretch from Edward VII to Elizabeth II. In another it portrays the old professional theatre, without benefit of grants and subsidies, as seen by two of its most professional members, who themselves risked everything to bring the Greek tragedians to a popular audience and for whom Bernard Shaw wrote his greatest play. Yet again it is the intertwining of both these themes with love and death and war and religion and idealism, the world that we all have in common and that so few of us make as much of as they did.

It is a book of pace and pathos and high spirits. There are stories of the theatre and sketches of actors and actresses and producers and writers that will delight everyone who has ever enjoyed a play. Shaw, Gilbert Murray, Godfrey Tearle, Emlyn Williams, Rex Harrison, Gladys Cooper, John Gielgud, Lord Olivier, Marie Tempest, Bronson Albery, Binkie Beaumont — the men and women of the theatre crowd too close to hear a name drop. Above all it is a memorable full length study, intimate without falseness or vulgarity, of two passionate and exciting people who have enriched the lives of English speaking people the world over..”

The Autobiography: My Manchester United Years by Sir Bobby Charlton (£10.50)Publisher: Headline — 2007Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0755316193]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “In this first part of Sir Bobby’s remarkable autobiography he describes his early life growing up in a tight-knit mining community in the north-east of England and charts his extraordinary career at Manchester United. Charlton is United through and through. A member of the original ‘Busby Babes’, Sir Bobby devoted his career to the club. He won everything the game had to offer, played alongside some of the greats such as Best and Law and, on a snow-covered runway in Munich in February 1958, was involved in arguably the most shocking football tragedy of all time. With his beloved Reds, Charlton tasted FA Cup victory in the emotional final of 1963, won three First Division championships and in 1968 reached the pinnacle of club success, by defeating Benfica in the European Cup final. Inevitably, such highs were balanced with no less dramatic lows — the 1957 European Cup semi-final, the highly charged 1958 FA Cup loss only weeks after Munich, and the 1969 European Cup defeat by Milan.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

The Falklands War: A Visual Diary by Linda Kitson (£10.50)Publisher: Mitchell Beazley — 1982Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0855334576]Condition: Good. A reasonable reading copy only. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers with creasing to the bottom corner of the upper wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: Published in association with the Imperial War Museum. Illustrated with line drawings. First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “The Falklands War — A Visual Diary by Linda Kitson is a remarkable book. Linda Kitson was the only official war artist attached to the British Task Force, and she was able to remain with the troops not only for the duration of the war itself, but also for the immediate aftermath.

Commissioned by the Imperial War Museum and the Fleet Air Arm, she left Southampton on May 12. And from that moment until July 17 she drew continuously, producing over 400 drawings.

Her selection of over 100 drawings for this book illustrates every stage of her war experience. From the day she boarded the requisitioned QE2 with 3,000 servicemen, she recorded the continuous, intensive training and preparation. She recorded the transfer at South Georgia to S.S. Canberra; the landings at San Carlos; and the deployment of the forces to Goose Green, to Fitzroy and Darwin, and finally to Stanley. She recorded, too, the poignant and frequently hazardous aspects of the aftermath once the Ceasefire papers had been signed.

The narrative captions that Linda Kitson has written to each of her drawings are expanded from the notes she made in her diary. The military detail is there, so too is the very human story.

This visual diary is a compelling document, and carries the distinction of both immediacy and historical record. It will be treasured because it reflects so honestly the bravery and determination of men experiencing conditions that have been compared to those of the Crimean War.”

Gently bruised at head & tail of spine and corners. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Edges of the textblock lightly tanned.Description: Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs;

From the cover: “As a boy he had one ambition, to be a professional footballer and to play for England. He achieved not only this boyhood ambition but the footballer’s dream and the final accolade when England won the World Cup at Wembley on July 30th, 1966. From the coal-mining village of Ashington to becoming one of the greatest forwards England has ever produced has been a long, hard road and the journey makes a deeply compelling story. He rose to fame on the wave of sentiment which swept Europe following the tragic air disaster at Munich in 1958… a disaster which decimated the Manchester United team which had been so carefully moulded by Matt Busby. Since then Bobby has never faltered. He tells, with the help of Neil Burden-Smith, of his life, thoughts, of Manchester United, of three World Cups and what it was like to wear England’s white shirt and play with and against some of the greatest footballers the world has ever seen. He also describes in detail those feverish weeks last summer when the World Cup competition gripped the hearts and imaginations of people all over the world.”

Lewis & Sybil by John Casson (£9.50)Publisher: Collins — 1972Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0002114887]Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper heavily faded at the spine and slightly ruffled at the top edge. Leans slightly. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight but slightly musty. Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The lifelong partnership of Lewis Casson and Sybil Thorndike irradiated the English stage. It was a partnership that combined qualities rare — in themselves but rarer still in conjunction: the traditional with the adventurous, the gay with the high-minded, the sophisticated with the simple, superb natural endowments of voice, looks and intelligence with a no less superb technique. Through it all glowed a warmth of affection, a generosity of sympathy, a zest for life that shone as brightly in old age as it had in the days when Sybil, with four young children to look after, was earning ten shillings a performance at the Old Vie while Lewis was sending home all he could spare from his sergeant’s pay in the trenches. John Casson, their eldest son, himself a naval officer who became a producer and is the father of a young actress already well-known, has written a memoir that rises to its opportunities. Lewis and Sybil are as convincing in themselves as in any of the roles they have created. In one sense the book is the story of a brilliantly talented and strongly attached family over the sixty years that stretch from Edward VII to Elizabeth II. In another it portrays the old professional theatre, without benefit of grants and subsidies, as seen by two of its most professional members, who themselves risked everything to bring the Greek tragedians to a popular audience and for whom Bernard Shaw wrote his greatest play. Yet again it is the intertwining of both these themes with love and death and war and religion and idealism, the world that we all have in common and that so few of us make as much of as they did.

It is a book of pace and pathos and high spirits. There are stories of the theatre and sketches of actors and actresses and producers and writers that will delight everyone who has ever enjoyed a play. Shaw, Gilbert Murray, Godfrey Tearle, Emlyn Williams, Rex Harrison, Gladys Cooper, John Gielgud, Lord Olivier, Marie Tempest, Bronson Albery, Binkie Beaumont — the men and women of the theatre crowd too close to hear a name drop. Above all it is a memorable full length study, intimate without falseness or vulgarity, of two passionate and exciting people who have enriched the lives of English speaking people the world over..”
