Description:
First Edition! London: Chatto & Windus, 2004. Hardcover. First Edition. First printing / full number line. Gift inscription on FFEP, otherwise a Fine book in a Fine jacket. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped.Did the Romans have rakes? Did the monks get muddy? This lively history of gardening in Britain takes us on a tour from the thorn hedges around prehistoric settlements to the rage for decking and ornamental grasses today. It tracks down the ordinary folk who worked the earth-the apprentice boys and weeding women, the florists and nursery gardeners-as well as aristocrats, grand designers, and famous plant hunters. Colored by Jenny Uglow's own love for plants and brought to life by many vivid illustrations, it not only deals with flowery-meads, grottoes and vistas, landscapes and ha-has, parks and allotments, but also tells you, for example, how the Tudors made their curious knots, how housewives used herbs to stop freckles, and how the suburbs dug for victory in World War II.

Description:
Normal, Illinois: Dalkey Archive Press. Trade Paperback. 2003. As New. First English Edition (stated). Not a remainder. 221 pp.A biting critique of book publishing: agents, subagents, and scouts, supermarket-like bookstores, Joan Collins, book fairs that have little to do with books, authors promoted because of sex appeal instead of merit, and editors trying to look like writers by having their photograph taken against a background of bookshelves. One of the most interesting and paradoxical comparisons coming out of Ugresic's dissection of book culture is the similarity between the art of socialist realism (as prescribed by the Soviets) and the nature of contemporary marketplace to produce and promote art that appeals to everyone.

Description:
Harmondsworth, England: Penguin Classics, 1971. Paperback. 1982 reprint. Very Good. Interior unmarked, but tanned. Spine straight and tight. Dust stains to top edge. Rubbing to covers. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. No tears, no creases, no folds. 237 pages. Recounting the final days of Arthur, this thirteenth-century French version of the Camelot legend is set in a world of fading chivalric glory. It depicts the Round Table diminished in strength after the Quest for the Holy Grail, and with its integrity threatened by the weakness of Arthur's own knights. Whispers of Queen Guinevere's infidelity with his beloved comrade-at-arms Sir Lancelot profoundly distress the trusting King, leaving him no match for the machinations of the treacherous Sir Mordred. The human tragedy of The Death of King Arthur so impressed Malory that he built his own Arthurian legend on this view of the court - a view that profoundly influenced the English conception of the 'great' King.

New York: Alfred A. Knopf. Hardcover. October 19, 2004. First Edition (stated). Red cloth with silver/gold printing over boards. As New. No signs of prior use. Spine very tight. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. 321 pages. John Updike's twenty-first novel follows its hero, Owen Mackenzie, from his birth in the semi-rural Pennsylvania town of Willow to his retirement in the rather geriatric community of Haskells Crossing, Massachusetts. In between these two settlements comes Middle Falls, Connecticut, where Owen, an early computer programmer, founds a successful firm which is housed in an old gun factory on the Chunkaunkabaug River. Owen's education is not merely technical but liberal, as the humanity of his three villages, especially that of their female citizens, works to disengage him from his youthful innocence.

Dust stains to edges. Jacket clean and bright. Not from a library. No remainder mark.
