Touristic Guide Of Lebanon by Emir Gilbert Chehab (£23.00)Publisher: Ghassibe & Berbarry — UndatedBinding: Paperback Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. A slightly dog-eared copy with some toning to the margins of the leaves. Binding weakening at the rear. Promotional, ribboned, bookmark included.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs & maps. From the cover: “Lebanon’s name derives from the Aramaic word (Loubnane) which means white. White like its mountains and peaks covered with snow. With its 10452 square kilometres, Lebanon is as “big” as a French department and slightly bigger than Cyprus. But what distinguishes this country from the neighbouring ones is its climate, vegetation and aspect. You need one hour on the road (a bit more with traffic jams) to leave the coast where you could swim in the blue waters and reach Faraya the famous ski station and ski down its snowy slopes. The sight of how many caves, valleys, plains and headlands meet your eyes while driving throughout this country! The bible mentioned “Lebanon” many times and according to some Lebanese chauvinists the earthly paradises resided here, others called it the country of the Dolce Vita, while others called its capital Beirut the small Paris. In this country of free exchange, you could, without any restriction and without paying any commission, change your money into the currency you choose. Bank secrecy being the most developed, you could make all stock market transactions without control or supervision, even justice could not interfere to inquire about your transactions or accounts without your approval. An important characteristic is that the Lebanese citizen cares for the tourist, is hospitable, ready to be useful and will even travel voluntarily to show you a place or welcomes you in his house for coffee and provides you the information you seek. Visit Lebanon and you will be pleasantly satisfied.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾". 215 pages.

The topics covered include: Physical layer (e.g., copper, fibre, radio, and satellite communication); Data link layer (e.g., protocol principles, HDLC, SLIP, and PPP); MAC Sublayer (e.g., IEEE 802 LANs, bridges, new high-speed LANs); Network layer (e.g., routing, congestion control, internetworking, IPv6); Transport layer (e.g., transport protocol principles, TCP, network performance); Application layer (e.g., cryptography, email, news, the Web, Java, multimedia) In each chapter, the necessary principles are described in detail, followed by extensive examples taken from the Internet, ATM networks, and wireless networks.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 7".

Phoenix was the only unsponsored, privately entered ship in the race — and the only square-rigger to complete the entire course. Her crew were international and all volunteers and, together with their twenty live chickens, they sailed with a vast armada of ships of all sizes to take part in the spectacular Parade of Sail on 4th July to celebrate America's Bicentenary.

The Trains We Loved by David St John Thomas & Patrick Whitehouse (£14.00)Publisher: David & Charles — 1994Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0715302922]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Plates;

From the cover: “Do you remember the days when the train journey was the best part of the holiday? When the great named expresses, hauled by the most powerful steam locomotives ever built, ran to time-honoured patterns? When trains formed of yesteryear’s rolling stock criss-crossed the land on well-ordered branch lines, calling at strings of picturesque stations commanded by proud station-masters?

Although many hark back to an even earlier age, half remembered or known from tales handed down by father or grandfather, few would argue that the finest days of railway travel began towards the end of the steam era and carried on into the period of nationalisation. BR continued to build steam locomotives on a grand scale, even manufacturing machines to the old companies’ designs, while many pre-Grouping locomotives were still busily at work. In the last days of steam many expresses were both heavier and faster, and used by a much wider cross-section of the population. And despite the pressures to conform, traditional practices and the individuality of the different parts of the railways still persisted. It is this era that The Trains We Loved evokes: the sights and sounds — even the smells — of the glory days of rail travel in Britain.

David St John Thomas and Patrick Whitehouse have produced an expansive text, rich in atmosphere but based on sound research and with substantial reference value. Portraits of the six regions and Ireland alternate with fascinating insights into how rail traffic was affected by the seasons, and the significance of holiday and school specials. Glimpses into station life shed light on the operating problems faced by staff and the devotion that went into solving them. Older readers will surely exclaim: ‘Yes, that’s exactly how it was!’ while those too young to remember will marvel at what has been lost

But The Trains We Loved is also a visual feast thirty-two splendid paintings, many previously unpublished, by Philip Hawkins, chairman of the Guild of Railway Artists, evoke the period in his own distinctive and unerringly accurate way. One hundred of the finest black and white railway photographs by Philip Alexander, Eric Treacy and other famous names make their own substantial contribution.”

Edges of the textblock lightly spotted.Description: The History of Israel from the Exodus to the Fall of the Second Temple. The persistence of the nation of Israel through the centuries, leaderless, landless, fugitive, persecuted, yet always surviving. And often itself producing world-leaders is one of the outstanding phenomena of our modern world. But why only Israel? Why not her kinsfolk and neighbours, the Edomites, Moabites and Ammonites, for example? The Israelites had their unhesitating answer to this question: it lay in the distinctive features of their faith, the worship of the God of their fathers.Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾". 254 pages.

Gently faded at the spine. DJ slightly ruffled at the edges with a ¼" closed tear to the foot of the upper panel. Price Clipped. Boards slightly soiled. Text bright and tight.Description: From the cover: “Within days of his election, George Bush met with his Mexican counterpart, Carlos Salinas de Gortari. The urgent meeting, held even before the two men had been sworn in as their countries 'respective chief executives, reflected the leaders' anxiety that Mexico's simmering problems could soon make it the country that Americans will have to worry about most. This is a collection of stories — vivid, real-life stories about America’s unknown neighbour to the south. These are not the people encountered by the four million Americans who vacation in the escapist atmosphere of Mexico’s splendid escapist atmosphere of Mexico’s splendid beaches or magnificent archaeological ruins each year. These are the real Mexicans. The Mexicans is a guided tour through the mean streets and dusty byways of this most mysterious neighbour. It is a look into Mexico’s very soul.”Notes: Jacket designed by Paul Perlow. Size: 9½" x 6¼". Grey/Cream boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 334 pages.

The Recovery of Europe: From Devestation to Unity by Richard Mayne (£11.50)Publisher: Weidenfeld & Nicolson — 1970Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0297001566]Condition: Very Good - in Good+ DJ. Edges of DJ somewhat ruffled, ¾" closed tear to the head of the upper panel, further small nicks. Edges of the textblock lightly tanned.Description: From the cover: “Fifteen million dead; many more maimed and crippled; sixty million refugees. Five million homes destroyed; whole cities annihilated. Roads blocked with rubble and craters; thousands of bridges down, rail and water traffic halted. Farms laid waste; women and children begging for bread sold by the slice, peasants hunting wild pigs with bows and arrows. This is no vision of thermonuclear disaster, but Europe as it was twenty-five years ago. Today, amid motorways and supermarkets, it seems incredible. Just as incredible, in I945, would have been a vision of Europe today. The Recovery of Europe shows how dramatically Europe has transformed itself — politically, economically, socially, culturally — from World War II until now.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

The White Squadron by Dorothy Desana (£11.50)Publisher: Robert Hale — 1961Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with nicks at the corners. Price Clipped. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Slight shelf cock. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “FORTY MEN AND A GIRL made up the White Squadron, which battled against the ruthless Arab drug and slave traffickers in the remote areas of the Sahara and Libyan deserts. For many of them an unsung death was the only reward for years of hardship and dedicated effort. The members of the White Squadron were self-supporting and unpaid — driven on by the call for adventure and a hatred of the evils they were fighting against.

When she was seventeen years old, the author ran away from school in Rome to join her uncle, her only living relative, who was then a member of the White Squadron. Against his stiff opposition she persuaded the members of the Squadron to allow her to remain; and when her uncle was killed a few months later, she took his place.

For the next three and a half years Dorothy Desana lived the tough life of a trooper, using a rifle against the Arabs as effectively as did her comrades. Alone on her camel she patrolled the wastes of the desert, looking for the drug and slave caravans. On one such patrol she almost died in the desert and came back to consciousness only because the vultures had already mistaken her for dead; and on several occasions she saw a battle squadron of veiled Tuareg, the mystery people of the desert, in action under its leader, the notorious Prince Idris ebn Nadayesha.

This is a fantastic story written by the only woman who could tell it.”

Death of a Princess: An Investigation by Thomas Sancton; Scott MacLeod; (£10.50)Publisher: Weidenfeld & Nicolson — 1998Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0297842315]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Top edge of the dust wrapper a little ruffled, rubbed at the top corner of the upper panel and a ½" closed tear to the leading edge at the top corner of the lower panel. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “In many ways the crash of a black Mercedes S-280 into the thirteenth pillar of Paris’s Alma Tunnel on the early morning of 3 1 August 1997 resembles a thousand other fatal road accidents. This particular tragedy was, however, exceptional. In causing the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, and her boyfriend, Dodi Fayed, the playboy son of Mohammed Al Fayed, owner of Harrods and one of the world’s richest men, it sent shock waves around the globe that months afterwards show no sign of abating.

Behind the immediate possible causes — speed, alcohol, a chase by paparazzi and even a collision with a second vehicle — lies an array of seemingly random variables, all of which led inexorably to the fatal conclusion.

Thomas Sancton and Scott MacLeod, two highly experienced reporters of Time magazine based in Paris, look back into the question of Diana’s relationship with Dodi to discuss what it was in the personality of this jet-setting playboy and movie industrv fringe player that attracted and reassured Diana after her unhappy marriage to the Prince of Wales and several unsatisfying affairs.

They ask why Dodi’s conquest of Diana was so important to his father. Were Diana and Dodi planning to marry? Was Diana pregnant? Is there any grain of truth behind the conspiracy theories — particularly rampant in the Middle East — that Diana and Dodi were victims of a British intelligence plot?

The questions are myriad. Sancton and MacLeod have investigated the crash as closely as the French police. They now have many of the answers. Death of a Princess is their highly revealing report.”

In Search of Steam 1962-68 by Robert Adley (£10.50)Publisher: Blandford Press — 1982Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0713710918]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and the top corners of the boards with a little wear to the dust wrapper as a result. Description: A Later Printing. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Maps; Tables;

From the cover: “Robert Adley’s mission fifteen years ago was to photograph in colour (at a time when colour photography was still comparatively rare) the last days of working steam in Britain. As a result of this Odyssey, which took the author and his camera throughout the four seasons of the year to railway station, engine shed, shunting yard, countryside bridge and embankment, he has compiled an impressive collection of over 1,000 colour transparencies.

Carefully preserved until now, Robert Adley’s album provides a unique colour record, which it would be impossible to recapture from the preserved steam railways of today. His book displays seventy-one colour subjects in all their glory. Even the macabre scrapyard evokes an acute nostalgia for another forgotten way of life.

This book is not justabout locomotives and rolling stock. It describes how the railways grew in Britain and in many cases faded away. The historian will have much to learn from the Ordnance Survey maps, which the author has ingeniously used to illustrate the changing pattern of the British railway systems throughout the years.

The author’s fast and often amusing text, full of anecdotes and on-the-spot detail, will fascinate railway enthusiasts throughout the land.

Robert Adley is Member of Parliament for Christchurch and Lymington and a spokesman on transport and tourist affairs. He is a confirmed and longstanding railway and transport enthusiast.”

The GWR Stars, Castles & Kings: Omnibus Edition Containing Parts 1 & 2 by O. S. [Oswald Stevens] Nock (£10.50)Publisher: David & Charles — 1981Binding: Hardback [ISBN: 0715379771]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with a little creasing to the foot of the upper panel. Description: 2nd impression. [First Edition: 1980] Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Diagrams; Tables;

From the cover: “This book combines in one volume the story, originally published in two separate parts, of some of the best-known and best-loved locomotives ever to run on rails.

Even before he succeeded William Dean as Locomotive, Carriage and Wagon Superintendent of the Great Western Railway, Churchward had prepared a plan for the complete standardisation of the locomotive stock. All the proposed new standard engines had two cylinders mounted outside the frames, but in the first years of the twentieth century the remarkable performances of the De Glehn four-cylinder compound engines in France were attracting so much attention that the GWR purchased some French Atlantics for trial purposes. The outcome was the development not of a new range of Great Western compounds but of the ever-famous four-cylinder simple Stars, which many years later were destined to become the forerunners of the even better known Castles and Kings.

Mr Nock tells, in a wealth of detail, of the factors that led to the establishment of the broad principles, and to the superb detail of the original design. He draws upon many official and unofficial sources in describing how it was developed, and his story is embellished with records of dynamometer car test runs and logs recorded by expert observers of locomotive performance. The introduction of superheating, top feed, double chimneys and many features that came to play an important ancillary part in the success of these engines is fully described. Later chapters trace the equally fascinating story of how this ‘family’ of locomotives was developed and modernised after the second world war to meet the gradually changing conditions of railway working, to the time when the last remaining Castle in regular service made its last run, in 1965. Yet this was not quite the end for several of the examples preserved are in working order, lovingly restored to run on occasional BR special trains. The book is lavishly illustrated with photographs depicting the main stages of development.”

A Bend in the Road by Nicholas Sparks (£9.50)Publisher: Bantam — 2001Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0593048148]Condition: Good+ — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Leans heavily otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: From the cover: “Miles Ryan’s life seemed to end the day his wife was killed in a hit-and-run accident two years ago. Missy had been his first love, and Miles fervently believes she will be his last. As a deputy sheriff in the North Carolina town of New Bern, he not only grieves for Missy, but longs to bring the unknown driver to justice.

Then Miles meets Sarah Andrews. The second-grade teacher of his son, Jonah, Sarah had left Baltimore after a difficult divorce to start over in the gentler surroundings of New Bern. Perhaps it, is her own emotional wounds that make her sensitive to the hurt she sees first in Jonah’s eyes, and then in his father’s. Tentatively, Sarah and Miles reach out to each other. Soon they are both laughing for the first time in years… and falling in love.

Neither will be able to guess how closely linked they are to a shocking secret — one that will force them to question everything they ever believed in … and make a heartbreaking choice that will change their lives for ever.

In A Bend in the Road Nicholas Sparks writes with a luminous intensity about life’s bitter turns and incomparable sweetness. His affirming message carries a powerful lesson about the imperfections of being human, the mistakes we all make, and the joy that comes when we give ourselves to love.”

If there were no flowers or visits from your longtime girlfriend, but the total stranger at your bedside claimed to be your wife — and then proved it?

If someone drove a blazing truck into your room in an obvious attempt to kill somebody, and very possibly you?

You’d do what Jonty Marks did when all this happened to him. He ran for sanctuary. To the mountain garden of a fallen angel — where else would he go?

[ISBN: 0747591687]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper.Description: Later Printing. From the cover: “From a walled-off enclave of towering plants, smart villas and sparkling swimming pools — a surreal bubble of pure Americana known as the Green Zone — the US-led Coalition Provisional Authority, under imperial viceroy L. Paul Bremer III, attempted to rule Iraq in the first twelve months following the fall of Saddam Hussein’s regime. Drawing on hundreds of interviews and internal documents, Rajiv Chandrasekaran tells the memorable story of this ill-prepared attempt to build American democracy in a war-torn Middle Eastern country, detailing not only the risky disbanding of the Iraqi army and the ludicrous attempt to train the new police force, but also bringing to light a host of lesser-known yet typical travesties, among them: The aide who based Baghdad’s new traffic laws on those of the state of Maryland, downloaded from the net • The contractor with no previous experience paid millions to guard a closed airport • The case of the 24-year-old who had never worked in finance put in charge of revitalising Baghdad’s stock exchange • The people with prior experience in the Middle East who were excluded in favour of lesser-qualified Republican Party loyalists. Written with wit and urgency by a sharp-eyed observer, Imperial Life in the Emerald City provides a hair-raising portrait of the gap between the Oz-like Green Zone and the brutal reality of post-war Iraq. It is American reportage at its best.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾". Black boards with Green titling to the Spine. 356 pages.

Managing to Communicate: Using Telecommunications for Increased Business Efficiency by Martin P. Clark (£9.50)Publisher: John Wiley & Sons — 1994Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0471941883]Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Library stamp to the ½ title page, no further marks, otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: From the cover: “How efficiently does your company communicate? Many companies consider improving communications as one of their top business priorities. But while the recent rapid evolution of technology has offered a wide range of new opportunities, many businesses have been slow to reap the full benefits, bewildered about what it means for them and what first steps they can take.

This book sets out to redress the situation by laying down a framework for the management of business communications and the best practice in the use of telecommunications technology. Features include:

  • How to assess business communications needs.
  • Best telecommunications practice for human communication — including telephone, mobile telephony, voicemail, electronic mail, videoconference, ‘private’ and ‘virtual private’ networks.
  • Effective data networking—Local Area Networks (LANs) and Wide Area Networks (WANs).
  • Tips for effective international networking.
  • Prospects for revolutionising business through emerging telecommunications technology.
The style is simple and pragmatic. The focus is telecommunications management, methods and tricks. The foundation is a thorough understanding of the technology — its strengths and its limits — and how it can be made to serve business. It is a book to raise expectations of what can and should be achieved.

For corporate telecommunications managers, technologists and communications engineers it will be an indispensable source of practical ideas and management techniques. For the marketing as well as the technical staff of manufacturers, network operators and communications providers serving corporate networks, it will be an invaluable opportunity to better understand customer needs. For the general business person and senior executive it will be a comprehensive source of advice — ‘how can I improve our communication?’ — ‘which investments make sense?’”

Description: From the cover: “Gary Krist’s turf is New Jersey. His characters are families — fathers, mothers, children, grandmothers, caught in the pains of divorce, remarriage, growing up, and Alzheimer’s.

There is Josh, a 17-year-old who juggles relations between his stylish Teaneck real estate agent mother, the mother’s garage mechanic husband who once tried to tip his dentist, and his father, a gentle man with ambiguous sexual desires. There is Mark, a high-school student whose first free-lance writing assignment is a eulogy for one Louella Schwartzkopf, who lived the last ten years of her life with Rose, a much-hated parrot, at a retirement home in Engle-wood. And there is Ralph, defiantly attached to his 82-year-old grandmother, who lives in the family’s refinished basement and sends Ralph out every day to buy a quart of milk to add to her growing collection. All this to the noise of traffic on Route 4, which if you have the right ears “almost sounds like a brook in the backyard”. Wisely, deftly, wittily, Krist captures the rough texture of life and of reaching for love. A major young talent. “

Edie Rutherford, Sheffield housewife and Socialist, who is always arguing with her hairdresser; B Charles, a gay antiques dealer in Edinburgh and a horrific snob. And meet Herbert Brush, London pensioner, active for his age, forever creosoting his garden fence and author of ambitious but appalling poetry. In Our Hidden Lives these ordinary people — who never knew one another — have come together to make an extraordinary book.”Notes: Size: B Format (7¾" x 5¼"). 536 pages.
