David & Charles, London, 1971. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/Good. colour frontis. photo. of a potter at his wheel; The history of handmade earthenwares and the techniques used in making them are absorbing subjects for the collector and for anyone interested in local industries past and present. Many local potteries still produce goods for a local market - even using local materials. The growth and decline of the many craft potteries that have worked in England from medieval times until today are here discussed, and a full picture of the development of the pottery industry and of its techniques over the last 500 years emerges. Much original research is incorporated, including the first classification of the little-known wares of the late fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, and a reconsideration of the development of the English slipware tradition and of the rise of the Staffordshire potteries. The full technical account of the craft is drawn not only from documentary s ... Read more

Grant Richards, London, 1903. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/No Dust Jacket. The second volume in 'The Hunting Library' edited by F. G. Aflalo for the publisher; b/w. frontis. photo. with tissue guard; in this volume Mr. Dale has given the results of his experience in the hunting fields of Leicestershire and the surrounding counties, and has treated his subject from the dual standpoint, for which his earlier work so fits him, of hunting historian and hunting correspondent. His chapters are almost entirely practical, though he digresses where necessary to criticise, always briefly and to the point, such modern questions as the presence of ladies in the field, the latest development of the capping system, and the question of hunting dress and hunting morals. For the most part, and with some few such exceptions, he gives us minute descriptions of the country known somewhat vaguely as "the Shires," and some very excellent advice as to the purchase or schoolin ...

Atlantic International Publications, New York, 1990. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/Very Good. They were among the wealthiest men in the world: powerful, flamboyant, priviliged, but little known to history. Who were these men? The 33 Romanov Grand Dukes. From 1797 to 1917, these Grand Dukes roamed Europe in their private trains, sailed the world in battleships, took over entire hotels, bought great art wholesale, had the most fabulous jewels, gambled millions on the turn of a wheel at Monte Carlo, and were greeted by presidents and kings as lords of the realm. Each in his turn stood but a heartbeat from the Imperial Throne, Autocrat of All the Russias. Yet, they were not always happy men. Some were devastatingly handsome, others ugly; a few were great scoundrels, some talented artists; there were poets and humanists, historians and wastrels-a great variety of unique individuals. But their lives were not their own. Each was at the command of the Emperor in all respect ... Read more

The Trustees of the National Gallery, London, 1961. Second Edition (Revised). Paperback. Very Good/N/A. black titles spine & front; a National Gallery catalogue which deals with the pictures of the Earlier Italian Schools in the National Gallery. It records also a few miscellaneous items, such as Greco-Roman portraits; but its main subject is the Italian pictures up to the end of the Early Renaissance. There is no doubt that a broad line of demarcation can be drawn between the Early and the High Renaissance. In some cases, nevertheless, it has been difficult to decide what to put into this catalogue and what to leave out. It appears, for instance, reasonable to class Perugino in the Early Renaissance, and Raphael in the High Renaissance; yet, in point of fact, Perugino died later than Raphael, and one of the Peruginos here catalogued was most probably painted after Raphael's death. Clearly, no division can be made that would in every detail be accepted by everyone as correct. Two lists are given ... Read more

Robert Hale Ltd, London, 2000. First Edition. Softcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. The hearing of a voice in the absence of a speaker is commonly regarded as a sign of mental illness, yet many ordinary people throughout the ages have had this experience. The voice either calls out the hearer's name or speaks a few words. It is sometimes recognized as belonging to a relative or friend, who may be alive or dead, or it may be completely unknown. What is said is typically uplifting, sometimes even life-changing, while occasionally the voice may forewarn the hearer of a coming disaster and thereby prevent injury or even death. Indeed, the course of human history has been changed by the timely utterances of such disembodied voices. In this well-researched book, Rodney Davies examines numerous historical and present-day cases of this truly remarkable phenomenon. He not only reveals that disembodied voices are a generally positive influence in our lives, but he argues that their reality points to t ... Read more

Celtic Mandalas

Courtney. (Text by Helena Paterson) Davis

Blandford Press, London, 1996. Reprint. Softcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. Illustrator: Courtney Davis. Mandalas are ancient magical, symbolic images that represent ideas of the universe and, in so doing, present a physical and visual tool for meditating. Their intricate compositions are contained within the 'eternal circle' which is equated with the 'Wheel of Life'. Celtic mandalas - with their special content from the art of the ancient Celts - invariably have a dual-dimensional format, relating to the belief that it is possible to travel from the earthly realm into the Otherworld of Celtic legend. In this book, noted artist and illustrator Courtney Davis has reconstructed the classic art of the Celts in his own beautiful and vibrant mandalas, which provide meditative subjects and sources for Celtic symbolism, astrology and their archetypal gods and goddesses. Courtney Davis is now recognized internationally as one of the foremost modern interpreters of the traditional art a ... Read more
