The Handyman In The Home: In 3 Volumes by Edited by Arthur W. Judge (£40.00)Publisher: Caxton Publishing Company — 1956Binding: Hardback Condition: Very Good. Pages lightly age-tanned otherwise a pleasant set.Description: September Reprint of the 2nd Edition. [First: 1930] Illustrated with black and white photographs & diagrams. From the preface: “As its title indicates, this work has been prepared expressly for the practical handyman desirous of undertaking a wide variety of jobs connected with the home, garden, garage and small workshop, including not only the domestic repairs and renovations that become necessary from time to time but also useful improvements and additions to the home and its contents. The keen home dweller, with a knowledge of the use of the simple tools and materials described in these volumes, can not only tackle most household repairs and additions expeditiously, but also avoid a good deal of expense. Apart from these considerations, there is always the satisfaction associated with the completion of a job that would otherwise have meant calling in someone else for the purpose. In addition to the extensive range of household repairs, fittings, furniture and other relevant items dealt with in this work, there are also a number of sections, including those on homecrafts, hobbies, sports accessories, outdoor constructions, etc., which will be found both useful and profitable to the handyman and housewife. Since many of the articles in these volumes deal with woodwork repairs and new constructions, it was considered desirable to include a comprehensive section, written by a well-known expert in such matters, on the subject of carpentry and woodworking tools, so that the reader who is not very well acquainted with the use of the latter can improve both his knowledge and experience.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 7".

From Television to Home Computer: The Future of Consumer Electronics by Edited by Angus Robertson (£13.00)Publisher: Blandford Press — 1979Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0713709731]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Edges of dust wrapper slightly worn. Price Clipped. First blank has a tanned offset from the flap.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “In the 1950s, the only items of complex electronic equipment in the typical household would have been a monochrome television receiver and simple record player (usually called a gramophone!). Ten years later colour television was just beginning to replace monochrome, and hi-fi ‘separates’ were becoming all the rage. Today, the range of electronic equipment being introduced into the consumer environment is rapidly increasing, effectively opening up the vast new industry of ‘Consumer Electronics’. In addition to colour television, there are video cassette recorders which allow television programmes to be recorded for later viewing or permet pre-recorded cassettes (such as feature movies) to be watched; teletext and viewdata receivers (usually built into normal television sets) that provide access to vast data bases of consumer and business information such as news, weather, sport and entertainment guides; video discs that will permit feature movies to be purchased for less than £10 and viewed via a record player producing pictures as well as sound; television and electronic games that are allowing rapidly advancing electronic technology to provide entertainment on many levels, for adults and children; and home computers which are not dissimilar to the more complex television games but with the important difference that they may be programmed to play games and perform many thousands of different domestic tasks. Many other aspects of consumer electronics are covered in the book including electronic watches and calculators and, with so much electronic equipment installed in the home, home protection and security devices which are becoming increasingly important, not only as defences against theft, but also fire. Finally, developments are continuing all the time in hi-fi and these are thoroughly covered, together with the increasingly important field of in-car entertainment market. Consumer electronics are destined to have a tremendous impact on our lives over the coming years, and FROM TELEVISION TO HOME COMPUTERS provides an insight into that future.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

On the Ropes: Boxing as a Way of Life by Geoffrey Beattie (£11.50)Publisher: Victor Gollancz — 1996Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 057506224X]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Geoffrey Beattie spent two years training and hanging out with the boxers in Brendan Ingle’s famous Sheffield gym, where Bomber Graham, the ‘nearly man’ of British boxing, used to spar and Johnny ‘The Entertainer’ Nelson trained for his world cruiserweight title — the world title few recognized. Naseem Hamed, the new world featherweight champion who has the boxing world at his feet, has been one of Ingle’s boys since he was seven years old. On the Ropes is the graphic story of Seattle’s own experiences in the gym and the hopes, dreams and lifestyles of the men he got to know there, from the great Prince Naseem down to the young lads wandering in off the street and the hard men with nowhere to go. He watches the boxers training and sparring, listens as they tell him of their aspirations, and observes their special camaraderie. And he follows them at play in nightclubs and bars, and in their enjoyment of brutal, illicit sports like dog-fighting and bare-knuckle fighting. By turns funny, touching and shocking, On the Ropes is a unique insider’s account of survival within the boxing ring and the gritty, macho culture that surrounds it.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

Black Swan by Christopher Hope (£9.50)Publisher: Hutchinson — 1987Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0091725429]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank.Description: From the cover: “The time is the 1960s in South Africa — the granite years. A dreamy teenager lives in a large black township on the Highveld. He does not respond to ordinary lessons, but one day sees a film of Swan Lake, and watches in amazement these beings in white, as if from another planet, moving in time to the music.

So begins a personal odyssey that takes the boy away from his township, out of his home country altogether, to a guerilla training camp in East Germany, then back into South Africa on a bombing raid. He is captured and put on trial. But through it all he carries with him his special dream of freedom which scandalises his friends and outrages his enemies — a vision of a magical place where anyone may become a swan and death itself is outdanced.”

Description: 3rd impression. [First Edition: 1983] Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Colour Photographs; Diagrams;

From the cover: “Recording the passing of time has absorbed and challenged mankind for thousands of years, but it was not until the Middle Ages that a fundamental advance was made when the first mechanical clocks harnessed the power of the falling weight and the unwinding spring. Hugh Tait traces the history of clocks and watches from the earliest medieval examples to modern times, with special reference to the matchless collection on display at the British Museum. From the grand long-case clocks to the most exquisite of watches, this book shows how invention and mechanical ingenuity have been matched with craftsmanship and artistry for more than five hundred years. Clear diagrams and colour photography enable the reader fully to appreciate some of the most fascinating functional objects ever made.

Hugh Tait is Deputy Keeper in the Department of Medieval and Later Antiquities, and a member of the Livery of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers.”

Los Angeles: Capital Of The Third World by David Rieff (£9.50)Publisher: Jonathan Cape — 1992Binding: Paperback (Uncorrected Proof) [ISBN: 0224033042]Condition: Very Good.Description: From the cover: “The author looks at L.A., that incarnation of the American dream, and finds the place and the fantasy radically transformed by the new immigrants from Asia and Latin America, who have been arriving in their millions, both legally and illegally, over the past 20 years. Instead of Hollywood writ large and fantasies of material bliss come true, the author shows the gridlocked freeways, where easy travel is just a memory. He takes us to immigrant neighbourhoods where Bhuddist temples abut Korean supermarkets. He ventures into L.A.’s downtown where the latest breed of local booster persuasively hymns the city as the new capital of the Pacific Rim. And he takes the reader to the Mexican border, where he watches illegals gather before making the crossing into El Norte to an L.A. that is no longer just the stuff of American dreams, but of Mexican, Salvadorean, Guatemalan and Korean dreams as well.”Notes: Size: C Format (8½" x 5¼"). 259 pages.

Ring by Koji Suzuki (£9.50)Publisher: HarperCollins — 2004Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0007178840]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: From the cover: “Asakawa is a dedicated journalist who has worked his way up from local-news beat reporter to writer for his newspaper’s weekly magazine. A chronic workaholic, he doesn’t take much notice when his seventeen-year-old niece dies suddenly — until a chance conversation reveals that another healthy teenager died at exactly the same time, in chillingly similar circumstances.

Sensing a story, Asakawa begins to investigate, and soon discovers that another two teenagers also died simultaneously and unexpectedly. Exactly one week before their mysterious deaths the four teenagers all spent the night at a leisure resort in the same log cabin.

When Asakawa visits the resort, the mystery only deepens. A comment made in the guest book by one of the teenagers leads him to a particular videotape. When he watches it, instead of a movie he finds an odd collection of disparate images with a portentous message at the end: ‘Those who have viewed these images are fated to die at this exact hour one week from now’.

Asakawa finds himself in a race against time — he has only seven days to find the cause of the teenagers’ deaths before it finds him. The hunt puts him on the trail of an apocalyptic power that will force Asakawa to choose between saving his family and saving civilization.”
