  • Quantity available: 1
Thames & Hudson, London, 1969. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/Near Fine. Jane Austen sprang from the upper middle class society of late eighteenth century southern England. Self-contained, orthodox in morals and religion, generally Tory in politics, depending for its strength on the professions and on the ownership of land - ¬this was the milieu in which she spent her entire life and which she describes so memorably in her novels. Indeed, her environment provided her with material ideally suited to her talents: accurate obser¬vation of character, wit, dramatic intuition, an ear for realistic dialogue and a highly disciplined formal sense. These gifts, already. evident in the early and satirical novels, 'Northanger Abbey' and Sense and Sensibility' were to receive their perfect expression in the great books of her maturity: 'Pride and Prejudice', 'Mansfield Park', 'Emma' and 'Persuasion'. Size: Large Octavo. 143 pages ... Read more

Margaret & Mutsuko Kohsaka Leeming

What dying splendour clings about the name! How it radiates still, out of the depths of time and dust!

Those that have walked the earth before me have already found in it the inspiration of many books, books profound and books magnificent. All that I am going to try to do is to describe the actual aspect of its desolation and its ruins; to tell what, in our transitory epoch, ... Read more

St Marylebone Society Publications, London, 1961. First Edition. Softcover (Saddle-stapled). Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. St Marylebone Society Publication No. 4; Scattered throughout the cathedrals and parish churches, the colleges and country houses of England, are the works of the sculptor John Bacon. Famous in his own day, he is now almost forgotten, though he was a fine sculptor, one of the first Royal Academicians and the protégé and friend of George III. For twenty-five years of well-earned and well-established success, he lived and worked at 17, Newman Street, in the south-east corner of St. Marylebone. From his workshop there came the nation's marble tributes to her heroes; he modelled the features of the statesmen, soldiers and scholars of his day; he designed and executed statues and adornments for the new buildings that were rising throughout the country; there he carved hundreds of monuments to humbler people whose kinsfolk mourned them. Indeed, his work marks the ap ... Read more

Peter Owen Publishers, London, 1984. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/Near Fine. green end-papers; The elder John Tradescant (c. 1570-1638) and his son John (1608-1662) were gardeners, collectors of curiosities and importers of exotic plants. Working for a series of eminent patrons (among them Robert Cecil, the Duke of Buckingham and Charles I), they supervised some of the great gardens of the period and were responsible for introducing many new plants into Britain. Their own botanic garden at South Lambeth became the centre of horticultural interest in Britain and their collection of rarities, The Ark, which subsequently formed the basis of the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, was the first public museum in the country. In the range of their interests and in their expertise, both Tradescants were unique and were justly famous among their contemporaries. To use a modern analogy, one might say that the Tradescants were responsible for establishing and maintaining the seventeenth-c ... Read more

Johnny and the Bomb

Terry Pratchett

Doubleday, London, 1996. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Good Condition/Very Good. Mrs Tachyon the bag-lady is not the sort of person you'd normally choose to hang out with. But when Johnny Maxwell and his friends find her semi-conscious in an alley, they have to do something ... as long as it's not the kiss of life. The more time Johnny spends with her, the more he finds that Mrs Tachyon isn't the ranting old nutter everyone thinks she is. She seems to hold the key to different times, different eras - including the Blackbury Blitz in 1941. Suddenly now isn't the safe place Johnny once thought it was, as he finds himself bound up more and more with then. And as time shifts beneath him, and the shopping mall and TV aerials melt into air-raid sirens and ration books, Johnny wonders just how much changing the past can really change the future ... This time-stoppingly funny, richly entertaining new adventure from the master of fantastical and irreverent wit, Terry Pratchett, i ... Read more

Thames & Hudson, London, 1975. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/Near Fine. Forty years ago, when young, A. L. Rowse first contemplated writing a life of Swift; now, in the mature reflections of a great scholar, we have a major biography, at once hugely readable, highly instructive and acutely relevant to our time. Swift's long life - he was born in 1667 and died in 1745 provides a superb picture of the period, in which all the great issues, political and religious, social and intellectual, are vividly represented. The masterpiece of his early career, ‘A Tale of a Tub’, proved a time-bomb that showed he cared more for literary fame even than preferment in church or state. From first to last he was a writer, true to his own genius - a genius that found its fullest expression in ‘Gulliver's Travels’: the most penetrating satire written upon human society and upon man himself. Here, as elsewhere, we see how Swift speaks, in the most direct and pro ... Read more
