Italy by Herbert Ypma (£15.50)Publisher: Thames & Hudson — 2002Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0500283478]Condition: Near Fine.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “For this new volume of Hip Hotels, Herbert Ypma has ventured far beyond the rolling hills of Tuscany, the postcard-perfect Amalfi Coast, or the Grand Tour destinations of Venice, Florence and Rome, to introduce real discoveries in under-explored regions like Puglia, Basilicata and Le Marche. You might be inspired to visit the utterly refined Hotel Raya on the Aeolian island of Panarea, from whose all-white terraces you can watch the volcano of Stromboli spurt fiery lava into the night skies. At the opposite end of the country, in the ultra-stylish ski town of Cortina d’Ampezzo, is Hotel de la Poste, run today by the same family as when Hemingway used to drive up from Venice in the early 1930s. Or if you prefer the beach life and night life of the Adriatic Coast, then fashion designer Alberta Ferretti’s Carducci 76 makes a superslick base. Many hotels are a complete surprise: ancient cave-dwellings in the eroded rocky landscape of Basilicata, or the trulli of Puglia, centuries-old igloo-like constructions with conical slate roofs. And whether cave, abbey, olive mill, fishing hut or barefoot beachside palazzo, every one of these unique hotels is true to its locale in architecture, design and gastronomy.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 8".

Edges of DJ showing very slight shelf wear.Description: This work on Roman culture and civilization has been acknowledged as a masterpiece.

Italy: A Picture Book to Remember Her by by David Gibbon (£9.50)Publisher: Colour Library Books — 1978Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0904681629]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges. Edges of the text block lightly tanned, running onto the margins of the leaves. Text complete, clean and tight but slightly musty.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “For centuries Italy has exerted a powerful influence over people from other countries. Artists and men of letters particularly have come under her spell: Byron. Keats. Goethe and Stendhal are just a few of the poets and writers for whom she has provided a home and inspiration. Not all her visitors have been so peaceful: a succession of invaders since Roman times have fought for possession of her soil.

What is it about this country that, through the years, has made her so attractive to others? One of the reasons must be the natural beauty, from the peaks and meadows of the Alps and the Dolomites in the north to the olive groves and spectacular coastlines of the south. A sense of history is everywhere: previous inhabitants such as the Etruscans, the Greeks and the Romans have all left behind them remains of their civilisations, and while some of these have been put into museums many are part of everyday life. And the towns, full of treasures, have each their own unmistakable atmosphere: Rome the Eternal. Florence the Divine. Siena the Beloved, Perugia the Gentle.

This book sets out to explain in pictures the attraction that this beautiful country held for the ancients, and shows, with over 80 magnificent colour photographs that the power of Italy is still as potent for a new generation stepping out in the footsteps of the old.”

The History of the Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire: 28 Selected Chapters by Edward Gibbon (£9.50)Publisher: Wordsworth Editions — 1998Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 1853264997]Condition: Very Good. Light reading creases to the spine otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: Edited and annotated, with an Introduction by Antony Lentin and Brian Norman. From the cover: “Gibbon’s The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, published between 1776 and 1788, is the undisputed masterpiece of English historical writing which can only perish with the language itself. Its length alone is a measure of its monumental quality — seventy-one chapters, of which twenty-eight appear in full in this edition. With style, learning and wit, Gibbon takes the reader through the history of Europe from the second century AD to the fall of Constantinople in 1453 — an enthralling account by ‘the greatest of the historians of the Enlightenment’. This edition includes Gibbon’s footnotes and quotations, here translated for the first time, together with brief explanatory comments, a precis of the chapters not included, 16 maps, a glossary, and a list of emperors.”Notes: Size: B Format (7¾" x 5¼").
