  • Quantity available: 1
Methuen, London, 1968. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/Near Fine. This collection of essays was originally planned as a sixtieth-birthday tribute to John Butt, formerly Regius Professor of Rhetoric and English Literature in the University of Edinburgh. The English novel was chosen as the subject in recognition of Professor Butt's long labour towards a new edition of the works of Charles Dickens. Professor Butt knew of the projected tribute, sealed with his approval its list of contributors, and took a lively and amused interest in its progress while he lived. When he did not survive to his sixtieth birthday, it was decided to carry on with the volume at a slower pace and make it the finest possible tribute to his memory. The twenty-three essays cover the range of English fiction from Congreve's early Incognita (1692) to Rayner Heppenstall's The Connecting Door and The Woodshed (1962). The coverage is necessarily .selective, and not every English writer of ficti ... Read more

Bowes & Bowes, Cambridge, 1931. First Edition. Paper Covers. Good/N/A. black titles spine & front; published for the Cambridge Antiquarian Society; Though the Index may appear to be rather slight, it is the only key we have to Cambridge matters contained in the many thousand volumes of Manuscripts which Oxford’s Bodleian Library possesses, and its printing will open the door to many hitherto unknown manuscripts for all those who are interested in matters concerning the Town and University of Cambridge. Mr. Madan's work (as presented in Part I) appeared so valuable that J. H. Bullock was tempted to supplement it by adding similar notes upon the MSS. etc. relating to the County, which cannot be satisfactorily separated from the Town or even the University. Ultimately the supplement has proved twice the size of the original and the two parts together make an instrument of research which should be of real value to students of Cambridge and its County. light wear to bottom of spine; includes ...

Near Fine/Near Fine. gilt titles spine; black endpapers; CWA Gold Dagger Award winning author; "Herbert Molin, a retired police officer, is living alone in a remote cottage in the vast forests of Harjedalen in northern Sweden.

He has no close friends, no close neighbours, and by the time his body is found, Molin is almost unrecognisable. Stefan Lindman, a police officer on extended sick leave, hears of the death of his former colleague and, to take his mind off his own problems, decides to involve himself in the case. What he discovers, to his horror and disbelief, is a network of evil almost unimaginable in this remote district, and one which seems impossible to link to Molin's death. The Return of the Dancing Master explores a segment of Swedish society far from Kurt Wallander's southern Skane, b ... Read more
