Martin Secker Ltd, London, 1934. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Good Condition/Poor. Illustrator: John Austen. This anthology will enchant both the ordinary reader and the connoisseur. Its contents reveal the extraordinary diversity of English behaviour and sentiment under the stress of Love as depicted by writers from the moral Gower of the 14th century to the moralists, Havelock• Ellis, D. H. Lawrence and Aldous Huxley, of our own times. It takes the great and the lesser Victorians in its stride, and from the opening section, "Love at First Sight," through" Suits and Scenes," " Love In Wedlock," "Philanderers," etc., to the appropriate conclusion" Love After Death," humour, conscious and unconscious, lights the way. The majority of the pieces have not previously been collected. As the editors hint in their introduction, those who expect to find here pieces which they like to think they know by heart, will probably be disappointed. Size ... Read more

Oleander Press, Cambridge, 2004. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). As New/Near Fine. Signed by Author. red end-papers; signed by the author on the title page; In 'Cambridgeshire: A History of Church and Parish' the renowned historian Professor Norman Pounds examines the development of the 150 parish churches in the county of Cambridgeshire. The book view the institution of the church 'from below', as an expression of the culture of everyday parishioners, rather than being concerned with high church politics. After exploring the relationship between parish and diocese, he describes what can be learned about the rectors and vicars who served. He discusses in detail the economic background within Cambridgeshire in order to explain why one parish has a larger church than another. In the latter part of the book, Prof. Pounds studies the ways in which the church building itself developed in terms of construction and cost, the building materials that were employed, and the furnishings t ...

Melrose Books, Ely, Cambridgeshire, 2015. First Edition. Softcover. As New/No Dust Jacket. This book describes the effect that railways had on the agricultural regions comprising East Anglia in the 19th century. Rail travel increased mobility and led to economic and social change in rural communities. The railways also offered employment opportunities with higher wages than could be earned in agriculture, and they were therefore responsible for attracting agricultural labourers. However, railway work was dangerous, and consequently in the early days accidents were frequent. The early railway companies realised that discipline was essential in order to try to ensure safe working conditions, so being drunk whilst on duty, and unauthorised absence usually resulted in instant dismissal. The author outlines the type of work undertaken on the early railways and describes the speed at which the system developed when operated by the Great Eastern Railway. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. ... Read more

Chatto & Windus, London, 2001. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/Near Fine. Maroon endpapers. Bushmen were hunting and gathering, painting and mining copper, thousands of years ago. They were the first people of Africa. Deadly shots with their bows and poisoned arrows, they were, in their heyday, Lords of the Desert. They fought extremely bravely for their land and lost. Today, they have been reduced to an underclass - dispossessed, despised and degraded. Just in time - one is tempted to say, miraculously - the Mandela government saved them from extermination in South Africa. Now in Botswana's Central Kalahari Game Reserve, set aside specially for them by the British in 1961, they are making their last stand, refusing to be evicted in order to benefit diamond mining and tourism. Sandy Gall, who is best known for his reporting of the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan, has taken up the cause of the Bushrnen. His interest in their plight dates back to the 1950s and 1960 ...

John Bowyer Nichols and Sons, London, 1862. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Fair Condition/No Dust Jacket. The debates during the session of 1610 can not compete in interest with those of such years as 1641 and 1689; but they have nevertheless, a peculiar importance of their own. From them may be dated the commencement of the great struggle between the King and the House of Commons. During the greater part of the first of the two sessions it seemed likely that the two great powers of our constitution might come at least to a temporary agreement. Before the second session was closed it was evident that all such hopes were at an end. The King (James I) demanded larger supplies than the Commons were willing to grant. The Commons asked that the exclusive power of taxation should remain in their hands, and that their grievances should be redressed; or, in other words, that whenever a difference arose between them and the Government on any important point, the Government and not the House of Commons ...

A Guide to Medicine

George G.Harrap & Company, London, 1950. First Edition. Red Cloth. Good/No Jacket. gilt titles spine; "this book is a guide for those who wish to know the meaning of medical words, with special articles on the more important subjects included under the term Medicine. Contributors are many & distinguished in their fields (e.g. Alexander Fleming on antibiotics) To cover all diseases, to include every term which has been introduced into text-books on Medicine, would be impossible in a book of this size. It is therefore selective and not inclusive; nevertheless, most of the terms in general use in Medicine, and those the meaning of which may be obscure, have been defined and the more important diseases and disorders described. It is hoped that medical men may find it a useful book to refer to, & that others, medical students, nurses, pharmacists, technicians - in fact, all who wish to know the meaning of medlcal terms in everyday use - will have in their hands a book they can readily consult ...
