Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1969. First Edition. Green Cloth. Near Fine/Near Fine. gilt titles spine; colour frontis. of painting from the School of Fontainebleau plus four b/w. plate illusts. in mid-section; "The themes and literary devices developed by Petrarch in his poetry became a kind of international stylistic Esperanto in renaissance and baroque literature. In this short introductory book Professor Forster examines Petrarchism as a European phenomenon transcending national boundaries. He begins with a general survey of themes and conventions, providing, with quotation, something like a repertory of the devices. He then shows in an important historical study how various vernacular literatures were seeking for a renewal of poetic diction at the moment when Petrarchism was available to meet the need. The third study examines particular forms - the alba or dawn poem, the pastourelle, the epithalarnium - and shows how realism in love-relationships could be accommodated within the tradi ...

Robert Hale Ltd, London, 1988. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/Near Fine. red end-papers; Jacket illust. shows Rowlandson's illustration of the pillory at Charing Cross This unique and lavishly illustrated book uses a highly original approach to bring the London of 1800 vividly to life. Using contemporary diaries, memoirs, maps and illustrations, Mary Cathcart Borer invites us to step back into history and sample, if only in imagination, the delights and idiosyncrasies of the age. All the information a newcomer to the city in 1800 would need is here: street plans, information on transport, details of lodging, entertainment, food, the main sights and events. Miss Borer describes the building of the new Bank of England, the critics' reception of Wordsworth and Coleridge's newly published Lyrical Ballads, and the scandal surrounding George, Prince of Wales and his new wife Caroline. The seamier side of London life is also explored: the bordellos, the prisons and ... Read more

Blandford Press, London, 1955. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. blind-stamped outer border front cover; Succulent plants, including Cacti, are very popular nowadays. Some people grow them for their curious shapes and attractive colouring but are not particularly interested in the names whilst others grow them for their scientific interest and can make use of the botanical literature to solve their problems. The majority of amateurs, however, are interested not only in growing the plants as well as possible but also in knowing the relationships between the different kinds and they want to be able to name the plants they have in their collections. People who are not accustomed to forming a mental picture from a written description will find it much easier to identify a plant from an illustration and, for this purpose, it is much more helpful to the owner of a young plant to see a picture of a plant of similar size rather than of an adult specimen growing in the ...

Breedon Books Publishing Co. Ltd, Derby, Derbyshire, 1994. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/As New. IMAGES OF CAMBRIDGE is a unique picture of one English city during the 20th century. Spanning the period from the death of Queen Victoria to the present day, and with a glance forward to possible developments, the book covers Cambridge from King's College to the suburbs of King's Hedges, and from the first bus to the 'Green Bicycles'. It brings together photographs from a wide range of sources, from formal groups to family snapshots, most never before published in book form, and draws extensively upon the Cambridgeshire Collection at the Central Library in Lion Yard and the archives of the Cambridge Evening News. Looking behind the fine historic faces that help turn a relatively small town into a world city, the book charts the developments as they happened. It demonstrates slum clearance and house building, the growth of the Arbury estate, changing shopping pa ... Read more

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

Allen Lane, London, 2003. First Edition. Blue Cloth. Near Fine/Near Fine. gilt titles spine; "What happens when we imagine something? When we read a phrase of poetry - 'the yellow of the tulip', for instance - an image, it would seem, immediately forms in the mind's eye. In contrast, trying to imagine a new mathematical concept (for example, a seemingly baffling number such as the square root of a negative quantity can be a much more complicated and mysterious process. Contrasting our understanding of ideas in poetry and in mathematics, Mazur looks at some of the earliest Renaissance explorers of these enigmatic numbers, such as Rafael Bombelli, and encourages us to share their bafflement and wonder. Then he shows us, step by step, how to begin imagining imaginary numbers for ourselves ..."; an unmarked copy in a price-intact D/J.; including notes, bibliography & index - 270 pages.

The Impulse to Dominate

George Allen & Unwin, London, 1941. First Edition. Green Cloth. Near Fine/Very Good. white titles spine; "war is not something sui generis (unique). It is a vlolent form of the coercion which in other directions our dominative society treats as normal. This book traces the processes - conscious and unconscious - by which large populations reluctantly acquiesce in war. It offers a psychological analysis of the increased social cohesion which war brings, the changes in moral outlook, and the ultimate break-up of one of the belligerents. Above all it asks, What is peace? - a question which turns out to have challenging implications. Here recent psychological work is called on to define an alternative to coercion, a radical conception of peace. To reach it, one essential is security. And the book ends by discussing changes needed to bring about psychological security, changes not only in the larger social world, but in its microcosm, the family."; light wear to corners of price-intact D/J.; inc ...

And yet, when once you have yielded to that charm, what a sway it holds over you! I have toured all over England, and fallen in love with a thousand places, but I love East Anglia most of all.
