Campaign Trading: Tactics and Strategies to Exploit the Markets by Jack Sweeney (£68.00)Publisher: John Wiley & Sons — 1996Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 047114150X]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the head of the spine otherwise a very well presented copy. The boards and spine appear to have been "recovered" before the application of the titling with a small area of overlap of the cloth. Not unpleasant. Odd. Binding unaffected.Description: From the cover: “Success in the trading arena requires the ability to change strategies on a regular basis in order to accommodate moves in the market and shifts in investment preferences. And while having a solid trading system in place is important for attaining favorable and profitable results, it is equally important to have an overall approach that is flexible. After all, any given system is only effective for a certain period of time, under a specific set of circumstances. Campaign Trading gives you the tools you need to develop a strong trading style that can be adjusted, refined, and retuned, when necessary, to meet the demands of current market behavior.

Author John Sweeney, Technical Editor of the highly regarded Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities magazine, has written a one-of-a-kind book that focuses on the “big picture”. He maps out a game plan with which you can win the trading war, not just the isolated battles. Covering essential topics such as the basics and anomalies of campaigning, reversing bad trades, reversing out of ranges, and using options to shift the odds, this invaluable reference shows you how to build a sound base for campaigning. You will learn what measurement techniques to use, how to test trading rules for effectiveness and how to pick the types of trades you will use in future campaigns.”

Principles of Agricultural Economics: Markets and Prices in Less Developed Countries by David Colman; Trevor Young; (£43.00)Publisher: Cambridge University Press — 1995Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0521336643]Condition: Very Good. Pages lightly age-tanned.Description: Reprint. [First: 1989] From the cover: “This textbook addresses the main economic principles required by agricultural economists involved in rural development. The principles of ‘micro-economies’ or ‘price-theory’ are of relevance to economists everywhere, but this book reinforces the message of their relevance for rural development by explaining the theory in the specific context of the agricultural and food sectors of developing countries. Hypothetical and actual empirical illustrations drawn almost exclusively from such countries distinguish this book from other economic principles texts that draw their examples almost invariably from industrialised countries, and also from books more oriented to the issues of rural development. The first half of the book deals with the underlying principles of production, supply and demand. These are essential tools for the study and management of the agricultural sector and food markets. In the second half, supply and demand are brought together into a chapter of equilibrium and exchange. This is followed by chapters on trade and the theory of economic welfare. In the final chapter it is shown that much of the material in the earlier chapters can be combined by agricultural economists into a system for analysing and comparing the effects of alternative agricultural policies. The ability of agricultural economics to provide a consistent framework for the analysis of policy problems thus enables it to make a key contribution to rural development.”Notes: Size: Trade Paperback (9¼" x 6").

Interpreting the Figure in Watercolor by Don Andrews (£34.00)Publisher: Watson Guptill Publications — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0823025489]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper which is slightly pulled at the head of the upper panel and has a light stain to the reverse of the same. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: A Later Printing. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “Figure painting is considered by many artists to be the most intriguing subject matter of all. But when forced to paint the figure from a laborious, anatomical point of view; artists often become discouraged. Well-known workshop artist Don Andrews advances the idea that the figure can be approached with the same creative attitude with which artists approach the landscape or still life. His emphasis is not on what you know, but on what you see. As demonstrated by Andrews in this book, the task of the painter is to organize, not report. Not only is this method easier, it results in better paintings as well.

Interpreting the Figure in Watercolor takes on a challenging subject: showing how the figure can be painted creatively and beautifully in watercolor through simplification, interpretation, and shape-making. In explaining how to capture the essence of the human figure, Andrews provides basic information about materials and discusses such techniques as gesture drawing and gesture painting; defining the figure with light and shadow and linking darks and lights for unity; introducing backgrounds; creating visual interest; edge quality; color granulation and temperature; middle value construction of the figure; using whites to “turn on the light”; and working from the model and photographs — but leaves readers free to make their own personal statements, to develop their own “how-to”. By carefully observing, interpreting, and then painting what you see, you can achieve very convincing and appealing likenesses of people.

Andrews’ unique approach to painting the figure is designed to teach artists at every level to overcome the obstacles of figure painting. His accessible style will help watercolorists improve their handling of the medium and rendering of the figure dramatically.”

Out of the Crisis by W. Edwards Deming (£34.00)Publisher: Cambridge University Press — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0521305535]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Top edge of the text block tanned. Description: From the cover: “This book examines two of the central issues facing industry — how to increase productivity without sacrificing quality, and how to capture markets from competitors. It is a practical book, with abundant illustrations, written for managers — whether in the manufacturing or service sectors. Dr Deming has a worldwide reputation for his work in establishing statistical process control techniques for quality as the route to competitive success in the new economic age. His involvement with Japanese managers is widely accepted as having contributed to their enviable reputation for quality manufactured goods.

The book provides a full account of Deming’s thinking on the primacy of management’s role in improving quality and productivity. He demonstrates what managers do wrong and how costs, dependability and quality can and must be improved. This is not just another manual of techniques; Deming provides a new theory of management which gets to the roots of the problems of industrial competitiveness which face managers today..”

Landscape Archaeology: An Introduction to Fieldwork Techniques on Post-Roman Landscapes by Michael Aston & James Bond (£33.00)Publisher: David & Charles — 1974Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 071536670X]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with pulling to the foot of the upper panel. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Our historical landscape is under threat, and this book offers practical advice for the novice or students wishing to further their field studies in order that they may record and understand the countryside before large parts of it are gone forever. The fieldwork techniques described can be employed by individuals or groups working on areas and topics of their own choice, and the book is designed to stimulate and guide senior school, extramural, college and undergraduate studies of post-Roman landscapes in England and Wales.

The evidence of man’s past activity is so extensive that there is no region where such work will be wasted, and often areas which at first sight appear archaeologically and historically barren turn out to be of the greatest importance when examined in detail; fieldwork carried out ahead of motorway construction schemes, for example, has proved profitable.

Topics covered include a brief history of field archaeology, an explanation of simple field working techniques, how to recognise and record the shape and development of towns and villages, how to recognise medieval elements in the rural landscape arid, finally, the application of these techniques to the route of a motorway. Illustrated with over fifty line drawings and nineteen photographs..”

Barclays stamps to front pastedown and ffep.Description: OVER the last twenty years the science of OR has grown rapidly. It has grown not only in the sophistication of the techniques which it uses, not only in the rapid intake of the personnel employed, not only in the rapid increase of the salaries of all those working in this field, but it bas also grown in the type of problem it tackles and in the maturity it brings to these prob- lems. Such has been its rapid growth that notwithstanding the great deal of interaction between the OR scientist and the industrialist, the management executive often hasn't a clue what it is that the OR men in his company are doing. For the man who does not yet have OR within his company, there is the perplexing problem of whether he should undertake OR and, if he does, what is going to happen, what sort of people will he employ and how will they go about their business. To introduce OR into a company requires a tremendous act of faith on the part of the executive. 107pp. Index. Size: 8vo Demy (8½" x 5½")

From the cover: “The National Trust cares for some of the most important, varied and valuable historical collections in Britain. From paintings by Rubens to elaborate Boulle furniture, the enormous range of priceless objects held in the Trust’s hundreds of historic properties is unequalled, and many of them are still housed in the places for which (hey were originally commissioned or acquired. This sumptuous book brings together some of the best of this outstanding collection.

Divided into themed chapters such as Arms & Armour, Clocks, Paintings, Textiles, Furniture and Transport, Treasures from the National Trust displays and describes each piece in an accessible way, ideal both for those with little knowledge of art history and artefacts and those more versed in the subjects.

Objects are chosen both for their beauty and their historical interest, and range from unique clocks, unusual costumes and rare books to more eclectic objects, such as the bicycles in the Hundred Wheels attic at Snowshill Manor, or even the decommissioned atomic bomb casing at Orford Ness. These valuable articles bridge the centuries, stretching from ancient Greek vases to 20th-century modernist furniture. Featuring stunning photography, this book is an essential guide to the very best of Britain’s treasures.”

[ISBN: 067162024X]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and the top corners of the boards with commensurate wear to the dust wrapper. Price Clipped. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Black & White Drawings; Diagrams;

From the cover: “Pasta, most authorities agree, developed as a way of preserving milled wheat — the wheat was mixed with water and dried in the sun. From that practical and humble beginning came the food that has been basic to the Italian diet for more than a century, and popular around the world. Most amazing is the possible range of preparation and combinations with other ingredients. Having written about pasta and taught its techniques for many years, Giuliano Bugialli now addresses his subject with the full force of his experience and scholarship.

Organized around other principal ingredients in a dish — vegetables or fish, for instance — or styles, such as the various regional specialties or different-flavored pastas, Bugialli on Pasta consciously and conscientiously takes authenticity and tradition into account. From the simplest tomato sauces, including the true marinara, to more festive and complicated stuffed pastas, Bugialli presents the genuine versions and explains the nuances between one and another. For everyday meals, Bugialli on Pasta offers dozens of simple and healthful preparations — pasta with beans, asparagus, or eggplant — that can be the mainstay of a sensible diet. For other occasions here are Ravioli Stuffed with Fish, from Liguria; from Abruzzi, elegant Crespelle cooked in broth, and from Tuscany, delicate gnocchi infused with the earthy flavour of porcini mushrooms. Even dessert has its pasta possibility, as seen in Nidi de Carnevale, chocolate-flavored pasta shaped into nests and sauced with honey, brandy and almonds.

Bugialli on Pasta is a brilliant book by one of the world’s great author-teachers, to be turned to as much for its food history and gorgeous photographs as for its recipes and instruction.”

A nice, tight copy.Description: Reprint. [First: 1993] Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “The world of doll’s houses is an exciting and magical one and when you build your own house you are limited only by your imagination. You can create in miniature whatever you want — a palatial mansion, an old farmhouse, a country cottage or a shop. Design and Build Your Own Doll’s Houses gives you all the information you need to achieve this. There is one simple principle upon which the construction of a whole house is based and that is building a box. It is clearly explained at the beginning of the book and once you have grasped this you can go on to create a house as simple or elaborate as you wish. Design and Build Your Own Doll’s Houses guides you through the whole building process — making the basic box structure, adding the internal walls, floors and ceilings and putting on the roof and front. It includes detailed information on how to build staircases, doors, windows, fireplaces and how to wire and decorate your house. Techniques for every conceivable feature are explained with the aid of step-by-step photographs, and as many alternative methods are given as possible so that you can adapt them to suit your own requirements. This book is full of inspiring and useful ideas and advice on how to avoid common pitfalls. There is a suggested work schedule to help you organise and order the construction, and at the end you will have your own unique house, awaiting only furniture and inhabitants.”Notes: Size: 9" x 11¾".

Gardening with Shape, Line and Texture: A Plant Design Sourcebook by Linden Hawthorne (£24.00)Publisher: Portland & London: Timber Press — 2013Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 9780881928884]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “Gardening with Shape, Line and Texture bridges the gap between garden design books and plant reference encyclopaedias. Leading landscaper Linden Hawthorne looks at plants from a designer’s perspective, where colour is often a secondary consideration, and emphasizes the important roles of plant shape.

Part 1 reviews fine art principles and shows how they can be successfully applied to plant compositions by grouping plants into three heights: ground to knee, knee to navel, and navel to crown. She identifies different plant shapes — buns, mounds, tiers, fountains, uprights — and shows how the use of them contributes to the success of the finished design.

Part 2 is a plant sourcebook with plants listed alphabetically within their key plant shape categories. This innovative plant reference delivers plant information in a form that neatly dovetails with the garden design process and will inspire gardeners to look beyond colour and begin to appreciate the whole plant.”

Asian Cooking: Recipes from the Far East by Edited by Lydia Darbyshire (£23.50)Publisher: Colour Library Books — 1999Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 1841001201]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper.Description: From the cover: “The cuisines of Southeast Asia have enjoyed a boom in recent years, with Thai cooking currently rating as the most popular ethnic cuisine worldwide. This new-found interest is hardly surprising given the vast geographical area encompassed, and therefore the immense wealth and diversity of cooking styles on offer.

Asian Cooking brings together dishes from Vietnam, where the cuisine is a subtle blend of Chinese, Thai and French cuisines, from Thailand and Korea, from the four major regions of China and from Japan. The result is an irresistible collection of ideas for cooking with rice and noodles, using fresh meat and fish, and blending herbs and spices to create the subtle flavours that dominate the Orient.

There is an informative section describing the few essential tools and utensils required, and explaining the basic techniques and cooking methods which can be used to bring out the best in a wide variety of raw ingredients. There is also a full glossary of ingredients together with suggestions for suitable alternatives.

Text complete, clean and tight otherwise.Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Black & White Drawings; Colour Drawings; From the cover: “To all leisure artists working at home, Painter’s Progress brings a complete year in your own private art school, a specially programmed series of twelve lessons with three experienced teachers of drawing and watercolour and oil painting. Anyone can be taught to draw and paint — this is the firm conviction of Ian Simpson and his colleagues, who have fifty years of teaching experience between them. Art is primarily about learning to see in a clear, direct way, and once the eye is trained, the hand will follow. Each lesson is designed to contain enough material for a month, but the comprehensive information in the text makes it simple to work at any speed. From the first hints on organizing a place to work, even in the smallest space, every project leads the artist through basic instructions in the three media, colour theory and the history of art to the wider fields of still life, interiors, landscapes, waterscapes and even figures and portraits. There are step-by-step projects for every lesson, detailed studies and carefully planned extra subjects, as well as unique guidance on how to look at paintings by great masters to give confidence and conviction to your own work. An invaluable reference section includes practical, back-up information on what to buy, specialized books to read, a glossary of art terms and museum collections to visit.”Notes: Size: 12" x 9". Blue boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 520 pages. Tags: painting technique paintings techniques manuals instructions three media colour theory history art wider fields figures portraits
