Trustees of King William's College, Douglas, Isle of Man, 1930. First Edition. Softcover (Side-stapled). Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. b/w. frontis. illustration of King William's College. This little book will fill a long felt want. It is a curious fact that, apart from the ordinary registers and statistics, no attempt has heretofore been made to record the circumstances attending the foundation and the progress of King William’s College. The fact is the more curious in view of the very prominent influence which the School has had, and still has, in the scheme of Education 1n the Isle of Man, and of its high standing in England. Canon Owen’s timely researches have brought to light, and show in proper perspective, the close relationship of the College to the progress of Education here, and make clear the very important place which the only Public School must occupy in the whole sphere of Insular development. The book, however, does more than this. While recalling in permanent form ... Read more

The Manx Society, Douglas, Isle of Man, 1859. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. publication number I of The Manx Society for Publication of National Documents & one of only 300 copies printed; pre-title page of Manx Society giving date established (1858), logo, volume number, & date of publication, followed by list of officers of the society. With preface, introductory notice and copious notes, by the editor. In selecting "Sacheverell's Account of The Isle Of Man" as one of the works of the first year's issue of the Manx Society, the Council has been influenced mainly by the consideration that the work itself is extremely scarce; that it is full of interest to the general as well as local reader; and that it furnishes an opportunity of pointing out, by means of the references in the Notes appended to it, the extensiveness of that series of documents connected with the history of this little Island, which is the purpose of the Society ...

Patrick Stephens Limited, Wellingborough, Northants, 1979. Reprint. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. B/w. photo. endpapers. No area of the British Isles has seen as much air activity as East Anglia. Almost since the birth of flying there has been something in the air over the eastern counties. With so much flat land strategically placed it is little wonder that the region has contained more airfields than any other of comparable size. Indeed, at one time airfield circuits were so close that some overlapped. Within the five counties there were well over lOO airfields at the peak of activity in the 1939-1945 war. From them was woven a story unparalleled in the history of military aviation. This book sets out to record concisely the activity that took place from these airfields and outline the squadrons and units which flew from them, the whole punctuated by some personal memories. It does not set out to be a catalogue of runway lengths or hangar sizes; more is it concerned wi ... Read more

Scottish Text Society, Edinburgh, 1889. First Thus. Hardcover. Near Fine Condition/No Dust Jacket. Printed for the Society by W. Blackwood and Sons & rebound in dark blue cloth with gilt titles to the spines. This publication gives, for the first time, a collation of the 1570 edition of the poem, with a 54 -page introduction & contents list to the front. Also known as 'The Wallace' this book is a long "romantic biographical" poem by the fifteenth-century Scottish makar of the name Blind Harry probably at some time in the decade before 1488. As the title suggests, it commemorates and eulogises the life and actions of the Scottish freedom fighter William Wallace who lived a century and a half earlier. The poem is historically inaccurate, and mentions several events that never happened. For several hundred years following its publication, The Wallace was the second most popular book in Scotland after the Bible. The earliest extant text is a copy made by John Ramsay, 1st Lord B ...

The Adventures of Don Quixote

Miguel de Cervantes

  • Edition: Reprint
  • Book condition: Very Good Condition
  • Quantity available: 1
Penguin, Harmondsworth, Middlesex, 1954. Reprint. Softcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. translation by J. M. Cohen; The protagonist, Alonso Quixano, is a minor landowner who has read so many stories of chivalry that he descends into fantasy and becomes convinced he is a knight errant. Together with his companion Sancho Panza, the self-styled Don Quixote de la Mancha sets out in search of adventures. His "lady" is Dulcinea del Toboso, an imaginary object of his courtly love crafted from a neighbouring farmgirl by the illusion-struck "knight" (her real name is Aldonza Lorenzo, and she is totally unaware of his feelings for her. In addition, she never actually appears in the novel). Published in two volumes a decade apart, Don Quixote is the most influential work of literature to emerge from the Spanish Golden Age and perhaps the entire Spanish literary canon. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. 940 pages. Spine browned with age. Slight foxing front/rear p ... Read more
