From the cover: “The first edition of this Manual appeared some 16 years ago and later editions were widely used as books of instruction during the Second World War. Considerable developments in engine design and a variety of applications took place during the period covered by the preceding five editions. In more recent years, however, the pace has, far from slackening, actually accelerated, so that the fundamental background of oil engine design has undergone considerable changes. The number of manufacturers has varied, whilst their power ranges have been made more extensive, even though the actual number of engine models has decreased somewhat through rationalization.

This new edition of “The Oil Engine” Manual has been very largely rewritten to cover changes occurring during the past five years. It is now fully up-to-date, as is only possible when the work is produced in the office of a journal dealing with the subject on a full time and highly specialized basis.

Chapters in the first part of the Manual give the background for engine design (of various forms) for all duties other than marine applications. In the second part, leading details are given of all the current makes of oil engine constructed in the United Kingdom, again for all purposes other than ship and boat duties. The third and final part is a technical appendix, which will be found useful, not only for those concerned with engine manufacture, but for those engaged in the use of such prime movers. Students also will find the whole book of permanent value to them in their work relating to this type of heat engine.”

Planned Beef Production by Stephen Williams; C. David Edgar; (£18.00)Publisher: Crosby Lockwood & Son — 1966Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Ex-library with few marks. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges with a rough nearly closed tear to the leading edge of the lower panel. Heavily faded at the spine of the dust wrapper. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “THE production of beef cattle is complex and is becoming increasingly so. Technical changes have been applied to the once simple matter of having herds of breeding cattle in some places and yards of fattening bullocks in others. Sometimes they were on the same farm, but often there was a considerable distance between them and this was bridged by the cattle dealer and the store market. New concepts of breeding by artificial insemination led to the replacement of some dual-purpose cattle by some others. The reds and the roans became black and white, or just black; and the buffs are now making an appearance. Physical and chemical methods of dehorning have jostled with genetic advances in polling. Competition between the churn stand and the calf pen in a period of falling milk prices led to early weaning in its various guises and to the greater use of milk substitutes and the earlier feeding of concentrates. Multiple suckling, carefully supervised by expensive labour, has led to mass suckling with labour charges spread over more cattle. More recently there have been interesting developments with barley fed and battery beef with forage flowing untouched from silo to stock, a trickle of concentrates being fed on the way. The time has come for an appraisal of the multitude of methods in beef production and the many differing ideas regarding suitable breeds down to the introduction of the Charolais.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5½".

Our Undeveloped World by L. [Laurence] Dudley Stamp (£11.50)Publisher: Faber & Faber — 1953Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little faded. Edges of the text block lightly tanned, 2" closed tear to the foot of the lower panel at the join with the spine. Tanning also to the blanks and pastedowns. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “At a time when the English-speaking world is becoming increasingly aware of its responsibilities in world leadership, this important and stimulating book on the under-developed lands reaches some surprising but significant conclusions. It is based on a series of six lectures delivered by Dr. Stamp to an American audience as Pattern Foundation Visiting Professor at Indiana University. He shows conclusively that the most important under-developed lands are not in the tropics and uninhabited latitudes as we might expect; the hope for land development lies in the middle latitudes, in the United States, the Soviet Union, Canada, Australia, and the Argentine — countries already powerful and populated. Again, Dr. Stamp shows in startling fashion that while the population of such densely inhabited countries as India and China is increasing, the rate of increase in the English-speaking white race is Jour times as rapid as in the population of the world as a whole.

To meet the worldwide menace of hunger, Dr. Stamp advocates the removal of man-made barriers and more efficient utilization of our present lands. Above all, he urges such a world-wide survey of land resources as will lead to intensive cultivation of our rich lands and an understanding of native agricultural problems so different from our own.”
