Signed by the author on the ffep "With regards from the author Roger Webster" - unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. From the cover: “In the title of this book When Britain Waived the Rules and Sampled — anarchy ‘the rules’ which were waived, allude to the provisions of the European Convention on Human Rights – freedoms guaranteed for the individual citizen. The anarchy refers to the time when certain rights had been wrested from British law, by Labour party legislation in deference to trade union power which then asserted itself with devastating effect. The case of James, Young and Webster v. the United Kingdom Government was in effect representing all those who had suffered the injustices of a grotesque piece of United Kingdom legislation. The case has been seen as one of the most important in British constitutional history.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼". Blue boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 238 pages.

Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides (£9.50)Publisher: Quality Paperbacks Direct [QPD] — 2002Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0747564485]Condition: Very Good+.Description: This is a sprawling family saga, bursting with life, which spans three generations and crosses several continents. At its core, however, is another unorthodox but exquisite coming-of-age story. The book's wily narrator and central character, Calliope Stephanides (named after the muse of epic poetry) is a hermaphrodite raised as a girl who comes to realise she is happier as a boy and is now living as a man in contemporary Berlin. Cal's tale begins, appropriately enough, in Greece (or more precisely Asia Minor)--an Aegean Strasbourg whose sovereignty is claimed by Greece and Turkey. In 1922 brother and sister Lefty and Desdemona Stephanides escaped their war-torn homeland and arrived, as man and wife, in Detroit, America. It is this coupling that ultimately begets their grandchild Calliope and her ambiguous sexuality, as she, or rather by then he, sanguinely notes:Some people inherit houses; others painting or highly insured violin bows. Still others get Japanese tansu or a famous name. I got a recessive gene on fifth chromosome and some very rare family jewels indeed. As Cal recounts the experiences of the Stephanides clan in their new land--from the Depression to Nixon--he unfurls his own symbiotic odyssey to a new sex. Cal's narrative voice is arch, humorous and self aware, continually drawing attention to its authorial sleights of hand, but never exasperating. 539pp. Size: 8vo Medium (8" x 5½" approx.)

The Road to Verdun: France, Nationalism and the First World War by Ian Ousby (£9.50)Publisher: Jonathan Cape — 2002Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0224059904]Condition: Very Good. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wraps. Owner's address sticker to the reverse of upper wrap. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Verdun was the largest, the longest and the bloodiest battle between the French and Germans in the First World War, lasting from February 1916 until the end of the year and claiming more than 700,000 casualties. For the French in particular, it was always more than just a battle, being rather (in Paul Valery’s words) ‘a complete war in itself, inserted in the Great War’. Ian Ousby’s new book gives a vivid, insightful account of the generals’ planning and the troops’ suffering. At the same time it goes beyond the narrow horizons of military history by locating the experience of Verdun in how the French had thought about themselves, their nation and their relations with their eastern neighbour since the debacle of the Franco-Prussian War. Verdun emerges as the mid-point in the cycle of Franco-German hostility, carrying both the burden of history and - if only by the presence on the battlefield of men like Petain and de Gaulle, France’s two leaders in the next war — the seeds of the future.”Notes: Size: Trade Paperback (9¼" x 6"). 304 pages.

Verdun 1916 by Malcolm Brown (£9.50)Publisher: Arcadia — 2000Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0752417894]Condition: Near Fine.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “1916 was a year of killing. The British remember the Somme, but earlier in the year the heart of the French army was ripped out by the Germans at Verdun. The garrison city in north-eastern France was the focus of a massive German attack; the French fought back ferociously, leading to a battle that would claim hundreds of thousands of lives and permanently scar the French psyche. To this day one can visit the site of ghost villages uninhabited since, but still cherished like shrines. Memories of Verdun would greatly influence military and political thinking for decades to come as both sides came away with memories of bravery, futility and horror. Malcolm Brown has produced a vivid new history of this epic clash — drawing on original illustrations and eyewitness accounts he has captured the spirit of a battle that defines the hell of warfare on the Western Front.”Notes: Size: 9¾" x 6¾". 192 pages.

My Life and Thought by Albert Schweitzer (£4.00)Publisher: Guild Books — 1957Binding: Paperback Condition: Poor. A reading copy only. Reading creases to the spine with rubbing to the edges of the wrappers which are a little faded. Pages age-tanned. A slightly dog-eared copy.Description: From the cover: “The four-fold doctor gives us here a volume which will fascinate all who think at all about the serious things of life. He devotes many chapters to the exposition of his views and how they grew, on the subjects on which he is an authority — Philosophy, Theology, Music, Medicine. These will send many readers to the separate volumes of his writings for further information. But he also tells us much about periods of his life — his life at Strassburg, for example, as a student and then as teacher, his visits to Paris to study under Widor and then to collaborate with him, his great work in Africa as a medical missionary, and, by no means least interesting, his experiences in two internment camps during the war of 1914-1918.”Notes: Size: A Format (7" x 4½"). 240 pages.
