French Aircraft 1939-42: Fighters, Bombers, Reconnaissance and Observation Types by Dominique Breffort (£151.00)Publisher: Paris: Histoire & Collections — 2011Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 2352501970]Condition: Near Fine. Slightest rubbing to the tips of the wrappers otherwise a very well presented copy of an uncommon title. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Drawings; Maps; Tables;

From the cover: “Contrary to what was long believed and asserted, French Armée de I’Air was not crushed on the first day of the German attack, on 10 May 1940. For aircraft, France did have — and a lot! — and in particular it did have pilots who fought, who even fought very bravely, especially if you take into account the equipment they were using, that subtle blend of out-of-date and therefore vulnerable machines and new, modern aircraft with all their teething troubles which not always corrected. This book, which is actually the reissue, very substantially increased, of volumes 7 and 8 of the Planes & Pilots series bearing the same title and published by Histoire & Collections in 2004-2005, provides a comprehensive overview of military aircraft of the crucial period in the history of the Armée de I’Air extending from the beginning of World War II to the dissolution of the aviation of the Vichy regime. From Amiot to Potez, all fighters, bombers, reconnaissance and observation planes used by the Armée de I’Air between 1939 and 1942, produced in France or purchased abroad, are presented by alphabetical order, supplemented by an overview presentation of the main prototypes built and flying before the end of hostilities but which circumstances prevented from being produced in series, even though this was planned and indeed sometimes already started.”

TSR-2: Phoenix or Folly? by Frank Barnett-Jones (£104.00)Publisher: GMS Enterprises — 1994Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition.

Leans slightly. Text complete, clean and tight. A nice copy of an umcommon title in any edition. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Diagrams;

From the cover: “In the late 1950’s the Government of the day embarked on a major initiative which was to change forever the basic structure of Britain’s Aviation Industry. At the same time the Royal Air Force had an urgent requirement for a new strike aircraft. From this emerged one of the most far-reaching military aviation programmes ever embarked upon by a British government up to that time. The subsequent arguments and debates for and against were voiced in all sections of the media, attracting both public attention and condemnation.

The new industry emerged from the ashes of the old as the British Aircraft Corporation and the Hawker Siddeley Group, however, the project that was formulated as the very incentive in bringing about the change was firstly condemned and then literally scrapped by a new, incoming government. It was always indicated that the project was cancelled because of its cost, but has this been used merely to disguise an underlying, alternative reason?

This book attempts to describe the aircraft, its systems and intended roles. At the same time it also traces the origins of the Operational Requirement and tries to piece together for the first time the controversial issues and personalities that conspired together to bring about the tragic downfall of the TSR-2.”

From the cover: “Fifteenth in the Olyslager Auto Library series and the third to deal with British Cars, this volume provides detailed coverage of civilian and military cars of most makes and types produced during the period 1940-1946.

Starting with the final year in which ‘pre-war’ civilian cars were made, albeit in small numbers, the book continues with a survey of cars, armoured cars and car-derived vehicles such as light and heavy utilities which were used by the Armed Forces in World War II, and many of which later found their way to ‘civvy street’.

The final part of the book deals with the first post-war models, many of which were put into production in the latter part of 1945. Most but not all of these were slightly modified pre-war types.”

The Encyclopedia of Modelmaking Techniques by Christopher Payne (£18.50)Publisher: New Burlington — 1996Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1861555407]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Slightly rubbed at the spine ends. The reverse of the dust wrapper has offset from a scrape to the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Drawings; Diagrams;

From the cover: “The Encyclopedia of Modelmaking Techniques presents an entirely new techniques-based approach to modelmaking. Materials, methods and components used in one area of modelmaking can often be transferred to another with very positive results. Rather than dealing with traditional subject areas, four main themes are identified — Structures, Landscapes, Figures and animals and Vehicles and machinery — and used to demonstrate the relevant techniques for a variety of materials. This approach enables the professional or hobby building modeller to access the section on figures to populate his landscape. Similarly, the military figure or vehicle modeller can find in the landscape section the secrets for placing his work in a background context.

This book also includes a brief history of models and modelmaking. A section on design looks at the different processes of research and construction and designing specifically for safety, ease of construction, display, control and operation. Comprehensive tools and materials lists identify both essential and supplementary items and ensure that you have the correct tools for your modelling projects.

Each of the four major themes is illustrated by a series of step-by-step projects, demonstrating the various techniques and materials used in professional and hobby modelmaking. An inspirational gallery of works by highly regarded modelmakers is accompanied by detailed descriptions of how the models were created. Finally, a section on presentation will show you how to make the most of your projects by displaying them to their best effect.”

The Knife and Fork Man: The Life and Work of Charles Benjamin Redrup by William Fairney (£17.00)Publisher: Badminton: Diesel Publishing — 2007Binding: Hardback First Edition. [ISBN: 9780955445507]Condition: Very Good. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding with a little ding to the join of the upper board. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Contains: Black & white photographs; Colour plates; Diagrams; Colour frontispiece; Appendices [2];

From the cover: “Charles Benjamin Redrup, the engineer and inventor, was born in Newport, South Wales in 1878. Raised in Barry, he designed and manufactured the unusual “Barry” motor cycle and went on to design a prodigious range of engines for First World War aircraft, motor cycles, cars, boats and buses. He carried out most of his development work in a simply-equipped home workshop, and often said that he made most of his engines with little more than “a knife and fork".

He was the inventor of the unique “Wobble-Plate” axial engines which powered a motor launch and a Crossley Motors motor car in the 1920s. A variant of the engine flew in a Simmonds Spartan aircraft in 1929. Several variants of his axial engines powered vehicles of the Bristol Tramways and Carriage Company in the 1930s. During the Second World War he worked on top-secret armaments projects for the Lancaster and other aircraft. After the war he designed more motor-cycle engines and a large 2,000 horse-power axial aero engine. His name appears fleetingly in many reference works but no full description of his extensive and innovative work has been previously written.”

Harleys, Popes and Indian Chiefs: Unfinished Business of the Sixties by Tim Paulson with Frederic Winkowski (£13.50)Publisher: Pavilion — 1994Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1857934903]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Contains a glossary of terms. Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs [inc. 1 4pp fold-0ut]; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “There is nothing so exciting or so liberating as riding a motorbike; for sheer speed, danger and excitement bikes have become the ultimate icons of the late twentieth century.

Harleys, Popes, and Indian Chiefs is the first book devoted exclusively to a pictorial appreciation of shining chrome and metal. Over 150 colour photographs, taken especially for the book, capture the raw energy and excitement of these machines. Each image reveals the splendour of over fifty international models past and present, each with a different story to tell and a unique design to study; such as the 1913 Silent Gray Fellow, the Henderson K, the 1951 Indian Chief Roadmaster, and the 1994 Kawasaki Ninja. The colour photographs are accompanied by archive memorabilia, which set the motorcycles in their historical contexts and chart the evolution of their design.

Also included is a pictorial account of the restoration of a 1934 Ariel VG500 Deluxe carried out over a year of loving care and attention, taking it from a rusty wreck to a gleaming dream machine — an inspirational journey for all enthusiasts.

The popularity of the motorcycle — which has always been strong among the many hardcore collectors — is experiencing a resurgence today among the newly hip; for their aesthetic qualities and the beauty of their design. This celebratory volume will appeal to all enthusiasts who yearn for the open road and who are turned on by the gleam of polished chrome and leather.”

Fighters of the Luftwaffe by Joachim Dressel & Manfred Greihl (£12.50)Publisher: London: Arms & Armour Press — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1854091395]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Tables;

From the cover: “In this encyclopedic new work, the combined talents of two leading German aviation historians have produced possibly the ultimate illustrated reference to all German fighter aircraft. Most of the 300-plus original photographs have never been published before and they superbly illustrate all sub-types and development models of more than 30 aircraft.

All types are included: the advanced designs in the rearmament of the 1930s, such as the Heinkel 112, Henschel 121 and Messerschmitt 109, through every wartime fighter, including the FW 190A-D models, Bf 210 and Me 410, Ta 152, He 219 and Do 335, and full coverage of the development of the revolutionary jet and rocket aircraft in which Germany was far in advance of the Allies.

The appeal of this book is also in the range of aircraft photographs, which show special power-plant, radar and weapons developments as well as unusual unit markings, photos of types in manufacture and operational conversions in the field — all rarely seen. The accompanying text emphasises the development of the Luftwaffe fighters, with facts and figures on the huge range of variants and sub-types under testing and of which little is known — for example, the evolution of the standard Bf 109 into the P 1091 Extreme High Altitude Fighter of almost 60,000-feet operational ceiling.

There are numerous books on this subject, but few can boast the number and diversity of new illustrations and the comprehensive nature of the technical data in this superb new study. Restorers, collectors, historians and modellers will relish the wealth of fresh information offered by such a volume which sheds much new light on a subject previously considered incomplete.”

The Decline and Rise of British Industry by David Clutterbuck & Stuart Craine (£11.50)Publisher: W. H. Allen — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1852510307]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dustwrapper. Edges of the textblock lightly tanned.Description: From the flap: “Has Britain really recovered from its decades-long industrial decline? What has to be done to maintain the recovery? And how did our industry become so uncompetitive in the first place? Here are the facts and the statistics behind the collapse of British industrial power and influence between the end of the Second World War and the late 1970s, and the subsequent return to apparent health in the Thatcherite years. Views vary widely on the causes of the decline; yet there is a remarkable degree of agreement as to what needs to be done to continue the recovery. Continue is the key word, for though the patient is off the critical list, he is far from dancing with rude health.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼". Black boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 388 pages.

SAS in Action by Chris Chant (£10.50)Publisher: Parragon — 1997Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0752522264]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “The British Special Air Service (SAS) is synonymous with military excellence. Highly trained and motivated, SAS soldiers are famed for being the best of the best. SAS in Action shows just why they are the best. It examines in detail every aspect of the SAS’s training, weapons skills, war record and equipment. Starting with training, learn how recruits are pushed to their limits, and beyond, to assess whether they are made of the ‘right stuff for the Special Air Service. SAS in Action provides an in-depth account of what it takes to win the beige beret, and why nine out of every 10 hopefuls fail to make it.

SAS in Action then looks at the Regiment’s war record, such as the Battle of Mirbat in July 1972, when nine SAS soldiers, assisted by a handful of local militia, held off an assault by over 250 enemy guerrillas. SAS in Action also includes more modern battles, such as the Pebble Island raid during the Falklands War, when the SAS mounted a daring night-time actiort that completely destroyed the Argentinian aircraft on the island; and the 1991 Gulf War, when SAS teams hunted Iraqi Scud surface-to-surface missiles. SAS in Action also includes what is probably the most famous SAS action ever — the assault to free the hostages being held by Arab terrorists at the Iranian Embassy in London.

SAS in Action also includes the weapons and equipment used by the greatest military unit in the world, such as the Heckler & Koch MP5 submachine gun, the Browning High Power handgun and the Remington 870 pump-action shotgun. The book also looks at the aircraft and vehicles used by the Regiment. SAS in Action is a thrilling guide to this world-famous unit.”

The Encyclopedia of Formula One: The New Definitive Guide to the Drivers, Cars, Circuits and Every World Championship Since 1950 by Tim Hill & Gareth Thomas (£10.50)Publisher: Parragon — 2009Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 9781407566795]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Maps; Results Tables;

From the cover: “When the internal combustion engine was developed in the late nineteenth century, there were those who viewed it purely in utilitarian terms, as simply another means of getting from A to B. And there were those who wanted to test their vehicles — and themselves — to the absolute limit; to get from A to B quicker than anyone else. More than a century has passed since the days of the spectacular inter-city races which launched a new field of sporting endeavour. But the raw appeal remains the same: man and machine operating as one in high-risk, high-reward gladiatorial combat.

The chase for the victors’ laurels gained fresh momentum in 1950, when the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile launched the world championship. The 30 men who have held the coveted title to date include legendary names who would feature in any list of all-time greats: Fangio, Brabham, Clark, Stewart, Senna, Prost, Schumacher. Others came agonisingly close to gaining a seat at the top table. Stirling Moss missed out narrowly on several occasions, Wolfgang von Trips was killed when the 1961 title lay within his grasp, while team orders robbed the mercurial Gilles Villeneuve of the crown in 1979.

This book chronicles the history of the world championship, from Giuseppe Farina’s victory for Alfa Romeo at Silverstone on 13 May 1950 to the present day. All the top drivers are profiled, and there is a wealth of information on the major Marques and championship venues, while the comprehensive statistics section will settle many an argument. It is a story of ingenuity and endeavour, rivalry and camaraderie, triumph and tragedy, in pursuit of the greatest prize in motor sport.”

The Encyclopedia of Modelmaking Techniques by Christopher Payne (£10.50)Publisher: Select Editions — 2004Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 9781861609694]Condition: Very Good. Slightly warped due to the size otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Drawings; Diagrams;

From the cover: “The Encyclopedia of Modelmaking Techniques presents an entirely new techniques-based approach to modelmaking. Materials, methods and components used in one area of modelmaking can often be transferred to another with very positive results. Rather than dealing with traditional subject areas, four main themes are identified — Structures, Landscapes, Figures and animals and Vehicles and machinery — and used to demonstrate the relevant techniques for a variety of materials. This approach enables the professional or hobby building modeller to access the section on figures to populate his landscape. Similarly, the military figure or vehicle modeller can find in the landscape section the secrets for placing his work in a background context.

This book also includes a brief history of models and modelmaking. A section on design looks at the different processes of research and construction and designing specifically for safety, ease of construction, display, control and operation. Comprehensive tools and materials lists identify both essential and supplementary items and ensure that you have the correct tools for your modelling projects.

Each of the four major themes is illustrated by a series of step-by-step projects, demonstrating the various techniques and materials used in professional and hobby modelmaking. An inspirational gallery of works by highly regarded modelmakers is accompanied by detailed descriptions of how the models were created. Finally, a section on presentation will show you how to make the most of your projects by displaying them to their best effect.”

Pride of Perth: The Story of Arthur Bell & Sons Scotch Whisky Distillers by Jack House (£9.50)Publisher: Century Benham — 1986Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0091509416]Condition: Very Good.Description: A Later Printing. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Pride of Perth is not just the history of an organization but of a unique relationship between a company and a city, in which the prosperity of the one has contributed to that of the other in an unprecedented way. Arthur Bell & Sons Ltd was established in Perth, the ancient capital of Scotland, in the year 1825, where its founder, T. R. Sandeman, opened a humble whisky merchant’s shop. Now the company’s sales exceed five million cases annually, a figure that increases year by year. In the story of the company’s remarkable success four men stand out: Arthur Bell, the archetypal Victorian industrialist; his son, the vigorous humanitarian Arthur Kinmond Bell; the strong, colourful William Govan Farquharson; and the dynamic, resourceful Raymond Miquel. Bell’s story is, however, not just an example of private enterprise at its best but one of public benefaction as well. In 1937, Arthur Kinmond Bell founded the Gannochy Trust. He set aside a certain amount of his income to provide work and housing for the people of Perth during the Depression. As the Company itself thrived, so did the Trust, and it still has a large holding in the equity of Arthur Bell & Sons Ltd. Pride of Perth is the story of a company whose performance is an investor’s dream, and a tale of human enterprise which Jack House relates with warmth and humour which make it highly readable.”Notes: Size: 9¼" x 6¼". 348 pages.

Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers with tape remnants at the tips. Pages lightly age-tanned.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “The main purpose of this book is to deal with the modern armoured battle and the development of the Tank. It may be said that with the disappearance of the horse from modern armies the roles of the two main divisions of the cavalry of the past — the heavy mounted troops used for shock tactics and the light horsemen employed for obtaining information and screening purposes — have devolved on various types of armoured vehicles. In the earlier chapters the leading principles of these aspects of warfare are traced through the centuries. The technical design of the tank of all the contestants in both World Wars is very fully illustrated. Specifications of armament, armour and engines are dealt with in great detail and reflect the Author’s profound knowledge of his subject.”Notes: Size: B Format (7¾" x 5¼"). 240 pages.

Earthrise: Halting the Destruction, Healing the World by Herbert Girardet (£6.00)Publisher: Paladin — 1992Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0586092528]Condition: Very Good. Edges of the text block lightly tanned.Description: First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: "We can turn the tide against environmental catastrophe, but there are no easy overnight solutions. Tinkering with CFCs and carbon-dioxide emissions only pin-pricks the devastation we are wreaking on our planet. Saving an acre of rain forest helps, but it only slows the destruction; it does not reverse it. Making cars more fuel-efficient and introducing catalytic converters is a welcome development, but it does not stem the ever-increasing number of polluting vehicles on our roads. There is only one real, all-encompassing solution — We must change our attitudes. At work, at play, in everything we do, in everything we consume. Published to coincide with the seminal UN Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro, Earthrise is a passionate polemic assessing the parlous state of health of our lands and seas. But it is also a book with a message of hope. The tide is turning. It must be encouraged, not only by words, but by actions."Notes: Size: B Format (7¾" x 5¼"). 239 pages.
