Television and Radio: Everybody's Soapbox by Bruce Parker; Nigel Farrell; (£14.50)Publisher: Blandford Press — 1983Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0713713062]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Top edges of the dust wrapper slightly ruffled. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with cartoons. From the cover: “The chance to appear on a radio or television programme is the opportunity of a lifetime to speak to a mass audience. Yet how many people appreciate the value of such an offer, or really know how to make the most of it? With the expansion of broadcasting in the 1980s there will be more air time available to members of the public in scores of programmes, particularly those put out by regional and local television and radio stations. Nearly everyone has something to gain by a chance to appear on the air: the father searching for his teenage daughter, the secretary of the local drama group which is putting on an unusual play, the harassed mother seeking action about the damp walls of her council house, or the managing director who wants a little publicity for his firm’s award-winning product. Everybody’s Soapbox explains in an entertaining way not only how to use your time on the air effectively but how to go about obtaining it in the first place. The authors take a detailed and often humorous look into what happens behind the scenes of broadcasting. Some of the pitfalls are described, including the ones to avoid when being interviewed. Don Osmond’s cartoons complement the light-hearted but informative text. Much advice is provided, particularly for those who find themselves on the air for the first time. Radio and television techniques are revealed and the jargon is made clear. There is guidance on how to handle an interview and how best to present yourself. You can also find out the right way to deal with the film crew which may arrive at your house.”Notes: Illustrated by Don Osmond. Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

Lost Subs: From the Hunley to the Kursk, the Greatest Submarines Ever Lost: and Found by Spencer Dunmore (£13.00)Publisher: Toronto: Da Capo Press — 2002Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0306811405]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. First blank has a vertical crease where it's been trapped under the upper board. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise. Description: Technical consultant, J. David Perkins. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Colour Drawings; Diagrams; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “In the summer of 2000, the fates of two very different submarines made headlines around the world. On August 8, the Confederate sub H. L. Hunley, sunk 136 years ago during the American Civil War, was raised at Charleston, South Carolina. Four days later, the Russian nuclear submarine Kursk exploded and plunged to the floor of the Barents Sea. Between the stories of these two lost submarines lies most of the history of men and warfare under the seas.

In gripping text and powerful images, Lost Subs chronicles the evolution of the submarine — from Robert Fulton’s early experiments to the famous German U-boats of both world wars; from Imperial Japan’s I-52 to the Cold War nuclear subs Thresher and Scorpion. Thanks to revolutionary new technology, divers and deep-sea submersibles are giving scientists unprecedented access to these lost subs, and shedding new light on both their creation and their destruction.

With state-of-the-art underwater photography, this definitive illustrated history vividly brings to life an amazing underwater museum. Fascinating cutaway diagrams and a wealth of archival photographs and paintings re-create these vessels in their prime and help answer many of the questions that have surrounded their sinkings. Here is a saga as current as today’s headlines, filled with mystery, drama and daring.”

The Lost Ships of Guadalcanal: Exploring the Ghost Fleet of the South Pacific by Robert D. Ballard with Rick Archbold (£12.50)Publisher: New York: Warner Books — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0446516368]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper, more heavily to the top corners which are near frayed, which is sunned at the spine. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “IRON BOTTOM SOUND… IT GETS ITS NAME FROM ALL the ships that sank there. From August to November of 1942 the tropical waters off the small island of Guadalcanal were the scene of some of the fiercest sea battles of World War II. Fifty years later, Robert Ballard, the man who discovered the Titanic and the Bismarck, took his exploration team to Guadalcanal. Their goal was not one ship but an entire naval battlefield. On board were some of the men who had served on those ships that now lay beneath Iron Bottom Sound. The memories of these survivors help tell a powerful, poignant story of men and ships and war.

The Lost Ships of Guadalcanal re-creates the whole story of the campaign that changed the course of the Pacific war. For all the fame of its air and land battles, Guadalcanal is also a compelling story of sailors and warships. In fact, more Americans died in Guadalcanal waters than on land. The terror and confusion of night naval action is conveyed here in gripping chapters that describe first the bitter American defeat in the Battle of Savo Island and then the struggle to eventual victory in the climactic Naval Battle of Guadalcanal. We then descend in Ballard’s submarine to view scenes of American, Australian, and Japanese ships lying together on the ocean floor, their guns still eerily pointing at each other.

With over 300 illustrations, this book has all the pictorial richness that helped make bestsellers of Robert Ballard’s two previous books, The Discovery of the Titanic and The Discovery of the Bismarck. Haunting pictures of the wrecks are paired with photographs of the ships in their prime; a spectacular full-page foldout reveals the USS Quincy and the Canberra, painted in accurate detail by maritime artist Ken Marschall. Full-colour maps and diagrams plus a host of paintings and present-day photographs help to both re-create this extraordinary chapter in the history of the Pacific war and convey the excitement of modern underwater exploration.”

Cleopatra's Palace: in Search of a Legend by Laura Foreman (£10.50)Publisher: Discovery Books — 1999Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0297825542]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Facsimiles; Chronological Tables; Colour Photographs; Black & White Drawings; Colour Drawings; Maps; Plans;

From the cover: “In 30 B. C. , against the backdrop of Alexandria, Egypt, one of the most majestic of all ancient cities, a great queen proudly and defiantly took her life. More than two thousand years later, the world remains fascinated and haunted by this most intriguing woman, Cleopatra VII, yet practically everything we know about her is based on ancient text fragments, literature, and myth. Was she the temptress of legend? A ruthless, ambitious conqueror? Or was she a strong, brilliant, visionary ruler, a passionate and loyal woman, and a fiercely devoted mother?

Discovery Books presents Cleopatra’s Palace: In Search of a Legend — a dramatic look at Cleopatra’s world based on ancient accounts and modern scholarship. Gifted storyteller Laura Foreman brings Cleopatra’s legendary tale to life, from the founding of Alexandria by Alexander the Great, to Cleopatra’s ascent to the Egyptian throne amid treachery and betrayal, to her passionate alliances with Julius Caesar and Mark Antony and her doomed battle against Octavian.

But the legend doesn’t end there. Cleopatra’s Palace also presents the astounding recent findings of world-renowned underwater explorer Franck Goddio, who, with his team of underwater archaeologists, has succeeded in mapping the Royal Quarter of Ancient Alexandria, long submerged beneath the Mediterranean by cataclysmic earthquakes early in the millennium. In a fascinating narrative illustrated by exclusive underwater images, the expedition’s successes are presented, including the discovery of such artefacts as jewellery, statues, sphinxes, rare pottery, and an ancient shipwreck, as well as architectural remains that were found on the site of this magnificent drama.”

Eject! Eject! by Edited by Bryan Philpott (£10.50)Publisher: London: Ian Allan — 1989Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0711018049]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine. Top edge of the text block spotted. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Contains: Black & white photographs; Diagrams; Cutaways;

From the cover: “As characteristic of the jet age as the sonic boom, the ejection seat has saved thousands from certain death since German test pilot Schenk became the first to owe his life to such a device in 1942. The story of the ejection seat began as early as 1930 when Flg Off A. M. Dudgeon of No 208 Squadron saw that increasing airspeeds required some form of assisted escape system. The difficulties experienced by aircrew during World War 2 in leaving their aircraft against the airstream or under ‘g’ conditions in emergencies, was the spur to extensive research in Britain, Germany, Sweden and the USA, which eventually led to the familiar red warning triangle (indicating that an ejection seat is fitted) appearing on most military jet aircraft.

This book is divided into two parts: in the first, Bryan Philpott outlines the international development and deployment of the ejection seat, from the earliest proposals to the fully automatic seats of today. The second half of the book contains a number of chapters, each of which deals with a particularly significant use of an ejection seat.

The writer vividly describes ejections from a Meteor F8 over North Korea, from the AW52 ‘flying wing’, and from a Harrier GR3 over the Falklands; there is even an underwater ejection.

Illustrated with many rare photographs as well as some unusual drawings, this book will be compulsive reading for anyone with an interest in modern aviation, or the ingenuity with which man can ensure his survival.”

Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned. Description: From the cover: “Fact is blended skilfully with fantasy in this unusual sea story based upon scientific beliefs about the nature of time.

Mercy Goddard, a young American anthropologist with a deep knowledge of old seafaring matters, is a member of an expedition to the South Seas in search of a legendary island and proof that the Polynesians were of Asiatic origin. On the day of the autumn equinox the expedition experiences some very peculiar phenomena: the sun stands still, there are violent underwater explosions, and extreme changes in barometric pressure.

During a squall, which follows these events, Mercy is carried out to sea in a skiff. She awakes to find herself on board the whaler Bowditch, under the command of Captain Nate Soule. The year is 1821. Time has turned back and taken her with it.

Mercy’s problem is to talk and behave as a young lady of the period, and to conceal her knowledge of facts and events that were as yet unknown to the ship’s crew. To add to her difficulties, she and the captain fall in love.”

Ex-library with usual marks, sticker to the spine of the dust wrapper has been removed, pocket to the pastedown, slip to the ffep, stamp to the reverse of the title page.Description: From the cover: “Aerial photography has provided the archaeologist with one of his most effective means of research. Unlike his co-worker on the ground the aerial archaeologist is not confined to a limited area. His roving eye takes in a wide panorama at one glance and his work in recent years has frequently resulted in startling discoveries. Flights into Yesterday provides a compelling account of the science, history and personalities of aerial archaeology. It shows the close links between early military reconnaissance and aerial research and how enthusiasts borrowed time and aircraft to aid their searches. It recalls the adventures and misfortunes which early pioneers encountered in an effort to further their investigations. The flights of Colonel Charles Lindbergh over the jungles of South America, and Poidebard’s search for Byzantine camps in the deserts of the Middle East, contrast with Crawford’s patient photography of the meadows of England.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5½".

Fresh water is disappearing from overuse and pollution and the only hope lies in desalination, a process to convert salt water into fresh. Francesca Carval is a brilliant scientist whose newest discovery will save the human race. She has perfected the process of desalination, and is flying to a conference in Rio to announce it to the world. Then a group of terrorists attempts to hijack her plane which crashes in the Venezuelan jungle. Francesca is taken in and protected by a native tribe: she is not heard from again. Ten years later, Kurt Austin and his NUMA team come across the mysterious death of a pod of grey whales off the coast of California. The path leads Austin to the heart of South America where he discovers Francesca, the ‘white goddess’ of the jungle, living among the tribe that took her in. At the same time Austin stumbles upon a group that aims to control the world’s fresh water supply, and which will kill anyone who stands in its way.”Notes: Size: A Format (7" x 4½").
