Random House, New York, 1973. First Edition. Hardcover. Good Condition/Very Good.

John Bowyer Nichols and Sons, London, 1862. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Fair Condition/No Dust Jacket. The debates during the session of 1610 can not compete in interest with those of such years as 1641 and 1689; but they have nevertheless, a peculiar importance of their own. From them may be dated the commencement of the great struggle between the King and the House of Commons. During the greater part of the first of the two sessions it seemed likely that the two great powers of our constitution might come at least to a temporary agreement. Before the second session was closed it was evident that all such hopes were at an end. The King (James I) demanded larger supplies than the Commons were willing to grant. The Commons asked that the exclusive power of taxation should remain in their hands, and that their grievances should be redressed; or, in other words, that whenever a difference arose between them and the Government on any important point, the Government and not the House of Commons ...

Agir, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 1998. First Edition. Hardcover (Printed Boards). Fine Condition/Fine. Illustrator: photo's by José de Paula Machado. black end-papers; The choice of this particular spot to become the largest national park in Brazil, was based on the fact that the land sheltered an uninterrupted tropical rainforest and a watershed of dark-coloured rivers, of which Jau was the most important, winding its way across 400 km from the source. It also had the distinct advantage of being flanked by a series of rivers and creeks, which gave it natural protection from human interference and any natural disasters, which could alter its physical and ecological characteristics. Its administrative directives, which were drawn up jointly with the Vitoria Amazonica Foundation, emphasize the park's objectives and activities such as scientific research and ecotourism. The superb colour photography by Jose de Paula Machado gives the reader a resume of this hinterland & the secrets which sti ... Read more

Methuen, London, 1961. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/Good. green end-papers; When he went up to Cambridge to do research on the later novels of Henry James, Noel Perrin followed the example of many other young Americans: he buried his passport under a pile of socks and tried to be more English than the English. He deceived everyone, with the disastrous exception of the local English soldiery. This anecdote opens a most entertaining volume of essays and stories. Noel Perrin will be familiar to readers of Punch, The New Statesman and The New Yorker, and this first collection of his writing shows him fantastic, humorous (at times in a gently academic vein) and always acute in his observation of modern life. He makes a thwarted effort to hear nightingales sing in Madingley Wood. He has a calamitous ski-ing holiday in Switzerland. He investigates a pigeon-kicking society at Columbia University. He observes the sisterly pressure which brought 'Monk' Lewis to turn his no ... Read more

The Bodley Head Ltd, London, 1986. First Edition. Blue Cloth. Near Fine/Near Fine. Signed by Author. gilt titles spine; signed on the front endpaper; "twenty years ago, Alistair Cooke was invited to deliver the annual Convocation Address of the Mayo Clinic. He chose to speak about medicine from a layman's point of view. This now famous lecture brought invitations from other distinguished medical bodies, as also from other professional associations: of architects, lawyers, the US Military Academy at West Point, Cambridge University, and not least the US House of Representatives (on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the meeting of the first Continental - i.e. revolutionary - Congress). These lectures are collected here as essays in what Cooke calls 'the journalist's main function: to be the link of communication between the expert and the layman'. But he has chosen only those speeches in which the layman is talking back - so to speak - to the College of Cardinals. They conseque ... Read more

Patrick Sarsfield

  • Edition: First Edition
  • Book condition: Good
  • Quantity available: 1
Talbot Press, Dublin, Ireland, 1934. First Edition. Brown Cloth. Good/No Jacket. gilt titles spine; (from the author's preface): "This book is not a biography, and gives no intimate study of character. The reader will not find here that which he is probably seeking: a description of Sarsfieid's boyhood and his love story. I wish such knowledge were mine. I have given all that record presents: the detached tale of the soldier. It may be objected that Sarsfield almost disppears behind the smoke of battles and that his voice is lost in their uproar . He recruits and commands; he inspires the people of Ireland, and becomes the idol of the common soldier; alone among the native race, he is feared by the army of invaders. He dies in the same cause to which the effort of his life was directed. Yet his personality remains very obscure. The story of Sarsfteld merges inevitably into an account of the Jacobite War in Ireland, because I was obliged to explain whose guns were crashing over our hero' ... Read more

Crucible, Wellingborough, Northants, 1990. First Edition. Softcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. Paul Brunton (1898-1981) was a British philosopher, mystic, and traveller. He left a successful journalistic career to live among yogis, mystics and holy men and studied a wide variety of Eastern and Western esoteric teachings. With his entire life dedicated to an inward and spiritual quest, he felt charged with the task of communicating his experiences to others and, as the first person to write accounts of what he learned in the East from a Western perspective, his works had a major influence on the spread of Eastern mysticism to the West. Taking pains to express his thoughts in laymen's terms, he was able to present what he learned from the Orient and from ancient tradition as a living wisdom and these extracts sum up his view that meditation and the inward quest are not exclusively for monks and hermits but will also support those living normal, active lives in the Western world.

A Pepys Anthology

Robert & Linnet (editors) Latham

Unwin Hyman Ltd, London, 1987. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). As New/Near Fine. In this short anthology, selected from Samuel Pepys's famous diary, passages are collected together by subject, providing a fresh look at some of the themes that run through the massive complete work. Robert and Linnet Latham's lively and skillful presentation allows the reader to become absorbed in a single topic without interruption, often providing new insight into Pepys's private and public life. We see Pepys the man of fashion, the booklover, the musician and theatre-goer, Pepys the husband and Pepys the public servant, at work and at leisure. From festivals such as Christmas and Twelfth Night, enjoyed with family and friends, to the great events such as the Fire and the Plague described so vividly in the Diary, Pepys's life and times are revealed in all their richness and variety. And for the first time, we can read as continuous narrative, some of the stories interwoven with daily events: th ... Read more

Hutchinson, London, 2007. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). As New/As New. green endpapers. Like Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela, Aung San Suu Kyi has become an iconic figure. Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991, since 1988 she has steadfastly opposed Burma's brutal military regime, instituted by General Ne Win in 1962. But her leadership of the Burmese democracy movement, and her ardent advocacy of human rights, have landed her in desperate trouble. She was first placed under house arrest in 1989. Today she is again under house arrest, seemingly for good. In the years between, she has faced constant physical and psychological harassment. In 2003, during an attempt on her life at Depayin, she witnessed the massacre of scores of her followers. Her extraordinary commitment to the Burmese people has resulted in involuntary separation from her family - her English husband Dr. Michael Aris, and their two sons. Aris's death in 1999 was yet another cruel twist of the kni ... Read more
