The ten selected personalities range from a crowned head of state to a world-beating boxer, from film stars to a fascist dictator. Illustrated with over 180 photographs, the book creates a compelling new perspective on the history of celebrity, notoriety and the nature of iconography.”

New London Architecture by Kenneth Powell (£20.00)Publisher: London: Merrell — 2001Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1858941504]Condition: Very Good — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper, more heavily at the foot of the upper panel and the tail of the spine. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “London today is vibrantly reinventing itself, and the quality of its new buildings is putting the city at the forefront of world architectural innovation. Through a wealth of stunning new projects and bold revisions of its older buildings, architects from all quarters are reimagining London’s cityscape.

New London Architecture paints a comprehensive picture of the most important recent developments in London, as well as works yet to be completed. Renowned architectural writer Kenneth Powell examines over 100 different projects, and traces the political manoeuvring and creative flowerings that are reshaping modern London.

The architectural renaissance of Britain’s capital has affected the design of everything from residential skyscrapers to corporate offices; from internationally important sports facilities to chic new boutiques; from imaginative new medical centres and libraries to striking riverside dwellings for students. This book illustrates in full colour not just the headline-grabbing public works such as the British Airways London Eye, the Jubilee line extension, the Millennium Bridge and interventions at the British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum, but also a wide variety of smaller-scale projects that together offer a manifesto for radical change.

Old battle lines between radicalism and conservatism have been abandoned as Londoners are proving themselves ever more ready to respond to the ambitious and dynamic changes happening around them. Norman Foster’s Swiss Re tower — the controversial ‘gherkin’ — being built in the heart of London’s financial district could not have been countenanced even a decade ago. The Prince of Wales’s famous attack on the proposed National Gallery extension as “a monstrous carbuncle” now appears entirely outmoded.

With illustrations, plans and critical texts of the projects that are combining to reinvigorate London’s urban landscape, New London Architecture provides a detailed and authoritative portrait, indispensable to professionals and public alike, of a city avid to embrace”

Silks, Soaks and Certainties by Bob Butchers (£19.50)Publisher: Blenheim Press — 2008Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 9781906302047]Condition: Very Good+.Description: First in this edition. Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover; “This light-hearted look at the racing scene will appeal to all who are racing ‘buffs’ and many who are not. The tale of a family whose links with racing have spanned more than a century is packed with many wonderfully evocative accounts of incidents and characters of yesteryear. Some of the activities would, to say the least, be frowned on today. Bob was the original Newsboy on the Daily Mirror and filled that post with distinction for almost 39 years. This, coupled with his family background, gave him a deep knowledge of what went on behind the scenes in racing and have provided him with a fund of stories which he shares with us in this book.”Notes: Size: Trade Paperback (9¼" x 6"). 311 pages.

Warworks: Women, Photography and the Iconography of War by Val Williams (£18.00)Publisher: London: Virago Press Limited — 1994Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 1853815918]Condition: Very Good. Light creasing to the bottom corner of the upper wrapper otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, 11th January - 19th March 1995. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “One of Britain’s most noted photographic curators and historians, Val Williams explores the myriad ways in which women photographers have used war to express major issues in contemporary art and society. In addressing collective memory, gender, sexuality and mass communication, she removes war photography from its niche as reportage and places it as a central channel for the contemporary imagination.

The Holocaust is looked at very differently in the works of Lee Miller and Rachel Lichtenstein; parody is present in Martha Rosler’s Bringing the War Home (House Beautiful) and in Anna Fox’s Weekend Wargames ; Deborah Blight’s Battlefield Panoramas explore war as lost memories; Barbara Alper’s Gulf Channel examines the new reporters, satellite TV; and Moira Mclver looks at men dressed for conflict. The photographs and accompanying essays provide a challenging dimension to photographic and cultural history. “

Travels with Queen Victoria by Sarah Ferguson & Benita Stoney (£14.50)Publisher: Weidenfeld & Nicolson — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 029783195X]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with a stain, on the reverse, to the foot of the upper panel not affecting the board. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs [120]; Black & White Drawings [50]; Genealogical Tables;

From the cover: “HRH The Duchess of York, Benita Stoney and photographer Robin Matthews set out on a royal adventure story, a journey back into the past, retracing Queen Victoria’s travels abroad to state and family occasions throughout Europe. We catch entertaining glimpses of her engaging character through many colourful and amusing letters, her assiduously kept journals and private sketchbooks which describe the people she met, the places she visited and the events of the day. Professional watercolour artists were commissioned to paint the highlights of her travels from balls and picnics to picturesque views, castles and grand houses, and one of the unknown delights of her reign is this treasure trove of watercolours and drawings preserved in sumptuously bound volumes at Windsor Castle.

The authors have immersed themselves in Queen Victoria’s travel library to reconstruct the journeys and create their own itinerary. They have followed routes she took by horse and carriage, and on the new and rapidly expanding railways of Europe. They have traced her in Rhincland palaces and fortresses, and in forgotten castles deep in middle Europe. Looking for her memory in the resorts of the French Riviera and on the Italian lakes, they visited the grand villas and chateaux, some now crumbling, some still resplendent, where the Queen enjoyed the pleasures, new to her era, of holidays in the south.

The text mingles Victoria’s descriptions with the authors’ impressions of place and period, while the illustrations juxtapose contemporary photographs and Victorian watercolours to startling effect. Primarily the record of a modern adventure, the book provides a fascinating insight into the Victorian past.”

[ISBN: 0712608591]Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ.Description: In 1837, the year a headstrong nineteen-year-old called Victoria Mary acceded to the English throne, a group of women in a remote comer of Gloucestershire began their own contribution to an era that was to become a byword for industriousness. There were at least eight of them, all members of the Clifford family of Frampton on Severn, and over the next twelve years they succeeded in making a collection of original paintings of nearly half the wild flowers of their native parish. These portraits, and a smaller number of illustrations of garden flowers, make up this Frampton Flora.Notes: Size: 10¼" x 7¾". Tags: Mabey Victoria Gloucestershire Flora Clifford

Description: First in this Canto edition. [First: 1996] Cover illustration: Disraeli by Carlo Pellegrini. Vanity Fair 30 January 1860.

From the cover: “Benjamin Disraeli was born in London in 1804, the grandson of an immigrant Italian Jew. In this fresh account of his life, Paul Smith looks at Disraeli’s unique character as a fusion of Jewishness and Anglicanism, outsider and insider, nationalist and European, Romantic and Tory; and shows how this formed his appeal as an original and a card, the most piquant joker in the pack and his indomitable nerve, as a faintly raffish outsider, in scaling the highest peaks of public life.”

The First Lady Diana: Lady Diana Spencer 1710-1735 by Victoria Massey (£13.00)Publisher: London House — 2001Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1902809017]Condition: Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. This copy appears to be the editor’s own copy with many notes and corrections throughout the text, including pagination and layout. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs;

From the cover: “Lady Diana Spencer of Althorp and London, tall and beautiful, a lover of music and the arts, treasured by every handsome young aristocrat, earmarked for marriage to the Prince of Wales, damaged by the death of loved ones and destined to die at a tragically early age. Familiar story? Yes, but this Lady Diana, in a life which was, in so many ways, a mirror-image of that lived by the most recent holder of the title, died at 25 years of age in 1735.

The Diana of this deeply researched and truly empathetic biography was the grand-daughter of the Duke of Marlborough. Raised, after the death of her mother when she was only six years old, by a grandmother, she became a young bride for Lord John Russell, who inherited the title of Duke of Bedford.

In her early years Diana showed artistic and linguistic skills, benefiting from living in London — next door to Frederick Handel for a time — and enjoying the social richness of the capital and the great landowning families. The loss of her first child when he was just one day old, later miscarriages and a second loss of power and subsequent related death of her father were among the setbacks Diana suffered in her short life, lived with vigour and determination but wretchedly brief;

This biography will lead many new readers to study a dramatic and colourful period of British history through an intriguing woman whose life was so like that of her recent namesake.”

Never before have two cricketers in the same team kept separate diaries of an England tour in Australia — and with a gap of seventeen years between them, the views of Bob Taylor and David Gower are fascinatingly diverse. Aided by BBC journalist Patrick Murphy, the players describe the daily events of England’s triumphant visit. But “Anyone for Cricket?” is not just about the game, although England’s most exciting young batsman and the world’s number one wicketkeeper reveal stimulating insights into the sport. It’s also about Australia as a continent, the people, the way of life and the pressures a touring side has to face.

From the flap: “As the years have gone by, Scott’s reputation has been weighed in the balance with Shackleton’s — and found wanting. Even the precious journals that Scott wrote on the journey are no longer in print, while photographs of the expedition have gathered dust in scientific institutes. In this new edition of the Journals, Peter King re-examines Scott’s exploits, setting his own account against modern studies of the Polar Race and thus enabling readers to make their own judgements for the first time. The text is illuminated by a selection of photographs, taken by one of the greatest Antarctic explorers, Herbert Ponting, who accompanied Scott.”Notes: Foreword or introduction by Beryl Bainbridge.

Incredible Africa by Willard Price (£11.50)Publisher: Heinemann — 1961Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with heavier fading to the spine. Edges of the textblock heavily tanned. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “Incredible Africa is the fascinating record of a round-the-continent journey made by Willard Price, well known as one of the most experienced and stimulating of contemporary travel-writers. It is also a timely and lively investigation of the political and social changes which are transforming parts of Africa at lightning pace.

The book is divided into two parts: the text and a section containing ninety-three superb photographs. Together they illustrate with startling clarity the extreme contrasts between the ancient and modern ways of life which exist side by side all over Africa and of which Willard Price personally encountered many exciting and entertaining examples. He and his wife were not content to travel from airport to luxury hotel and back again (although there are some valuable hints for tourists in this book); they deliberately organised their own ‘poor man’s safari’ to the Mountains of the Moon, at once home of the tallest and the smallest people in the world, and made the river journey by canoe to Dr. Albert Schweitzer’s mission. They secured interviews with the leaders of some of the newly independent nations; they visited the principal reserves where Africa’s seething wild life still battles for existence and had some thrilling encounters with large animals; and they penetrated parts of little-known Portuguese Africa.

As he travels from Morocco to South Africa, from uneasy Kenya to boisterous Ghana, Willard Price proves over and over again that in Africa everything is much bigger than life-size. Under the Sahara there is a recently discovered lake larger than France and nearby oil deposits are thought to be the largest in the world. Facts such as these make Incredible Africa a treasury of knowledge and are used by the author to build up an impressive view of the future of the most varied of the world’s continents.”
