Science Fiction Book Club / Readers Union, London, 1970. First Thus. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/Very Good. Jacket design by Terry James; the first of three novels in the 'Galactic Federation' or 'Timepiece' series; "In one of the most unusual time stories to be written in recent years, Brian Ball takes the reader on a journey through the universe and produces some of the most fascinating concepts to deal with the relativity of time, and space, looking for the focal point of time itself. He blends science and fiction in an explosively imaginative form that whirls the reader into a Vortex of excitement. But perhaps the most disconcerting aspect of this novel is that the theories expounded by the author have been checked by a noted scientist and have been declared feasible."

  • Quantity available: 1
Tundra Books, Montreal, Canada, 1994. First Edition. Hardcover (Printed Boards). Near Fine Condition/Very Good. Illustrator: Yvette Moore. writer Jo Bannatyne-Cugnet and artist Yvette Moore show family life on the prairies. "Each time a farmer plants a crop, it is an act of faith," writes Bannatyne-Cugnet. We witness how that faith is passed on from generation to generation through the months of the year. Grandparents teach the care of baby chicks, the planting of a vegetable garden, how to tell when grain is ripe. Children accept daily chores and special challenges: raising and grooming a show steer, and, in an emergency, midwifing a litter of pigs. Parents go out of their way, often very far out of their way, to turn hockey games, snowmobiling, fairs, auctions, Halloweening and the Christmas season into community events shared with neighbors. The text and pictures reveal Westerners as individuals who tower above the landscape; one likes these people, their optimism, their good nature, their f ... Read more

Hamish Hamilton, London, 1969. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. The aim of this book is to show how investigators of aircraft accidents work, and how they contribute to the present high level of aviation safety. Therefore the cases which are mentioned briefly or dealt with in detail have been selected merely to serve the above purpose as representative examples of various aspects of investigation. It is meant to imply no criticism of performance that mishaps of some airlines, aircraft types or countries have more frequently been referred to than those of others. This is in no way to compare their safety for, in fact, some of the more notorious ones may have not even been mentioned while the frank and open cooperation of some of the best helped greatly to produce the most revealing examples.

Essex Eccentrics

Barnes, Alison

Boydell Press, Ipswich, Suffolk, 1975. First Edition. Red Cloth. Very Good/No Jacket. gilt titles spine; illustrated by b/w. line drawings; a volume in the 'Essex Library' series; "few counties in England can claim more eccentrics than Essex. In the past its impenetrable forests, lonely marshlands and isolated villages were ideally suited to the flourishing of singularity and bred all sorts of odd characters. The people of Essex, always noted for their love of individualism, were proud of these characters and regarded even the most ridiculous with good-humoured tolerance. They appreciated the originality of their views and admired the spirited way in which they pursued their fantasies and flouted the conventions. Before the advent of pop-stars and television, of course, eccentrics were also highly prized as entertainers. Their outlandish clothes, hilarious exploits and racy quips added zest to dull rural existences and supplied wonderful material for gossip."; small stain on front cove ... Read more

Frontier Publishing, Kirstead, Norfolk, 2001. First Edition. Pictorial Laminated Card Cover. Near Fine/N/A. Illustrator: Photo's. black titles spine; "when 2000 was nominated 'Year of Public Sculpture', Richard Barnes looked at Norfolk and the city of Norwich. Spotlighting individual sculptures and monuments, his descriptions appeared in The Eastern Daily Press. Gathered together in this little reference book, the features pass from a 19th century pillar to a sensitive memorial, from a stone figure in a niche to a kinetic structure. Sculptures are shown in colour pictures taken by EDP photographers and the author, side by side with written accounts, full of information and some original research. These touch many aspects of Norfolk's history, with tales of men and women in peace and war, recalling local events and battles in distant fields.

A Family Way

Barr, David

Wensum Books, Norwich, 1976. First Edition. Paperback. Near Fine/N/A. Illustrator: Geldart, Jacqueline. green titles spine; illustrated by b/w. drawings; "In one of the later chapters of this Iight-hearted 'autobiography' the author, a Fenland lawyer, describes how, in a busy life, his mind often goes off on flights of fancy while he lies in bed half asleep in the early morning, with the radio switched on, waiting for the 7 o'clock news. It is in this limbo between waking and sleeping that many of his ideas seem to come to him. They are not all fanciful ideas, though by the time they get on to paper they tend to develop a whimsical flavour of their own. Most of the material was first published in the Eastern Daily Press during the years 1966-1973, and a good deal of it had already been written before a biographical theme began to emerge. Here, essentially, was the story of a happy family life, beginning with a whirlwind romance in the Services (a characteristically whimsical affair); the ... Read more

Penguin, London, 1997. First Paperback Edition. Softcover. Near Fine Condition/No Dust Jacket. Why do we like certain types of art or music? What are the origins of our feeling for beauty? How does the structure, of our minds determine what philosophical problems we find challenging? In this original and thought-provoking investigation John D. Barrow provides some unexpected answers. Examining the links between art and science, he looks at some of the surprising ways in which the structure of the Universe has shaped our thoughts and our aesthetic preferences, asserting that our evolutionary history has given us a particular way of perceiving the world. Human creativity is revealed in a new light as Barrow considers such diverse topics as our instinct for language, the development and purpose of colour vision in living things and whether computer­generated art is 'real' art. He goes on to explore our understanding of music (he analyses music from a mathematical perspective) and how i ... Read more
