Unicorn Press, London, 1998. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/Near Fine. St. Edmund had been 30 years dead when they brought his remains to Bury 1100 years ago.

A remarkable story of frivolity and conflict, brutality and charity, religious fervour and secular greed. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. 168 pages.

Illustrator: Willes, Olivia. gilt titles spine; dark blue e/p's; illustrated by b/w. photo's. & also by the author's drawings & colour paintings; jacket illusts. by the author; "While employed by the Cameroons Development Corporation (COC), the author, who finds herself drawn to hot, arid and sandy places, cherishes a seemingly impossible ambition to return to Europe via the Sahara when her contract ends. As the Fates would have it, a Dutch journalist materialises one day who has just traversed the Sahara in a southerly direction, alone, with a motor-cycle with sidecar. Travel of the kind envisaged was quite unusual at the time, something definitely unorthodox compared to the ways of the British colonials. The story proceeds stage by stage, involving the reader in the catastrophes, the moments of hilarity, the fatigue and despair, and the prevailing satisfaction for the author of achieving her ai ...

Faber & Faber, London, 1944. First Edition. Blue Cloth. Near Fine/Good. gilt titles spine; deckled outer edge; illustrated by b/w. photo's.; "this book is the first to be published in England, giving an account of the Swedish folk High Schools or People's Colleges. It is the outcome of the author's investigations in Sweden just before the outbreak of war. More recently, she has had the advantage of assistance from the Royal Board of Education in Stockholm and from personal friends in Sweden, in bringing the matter fully up to date by the inclusion of recent statistics. The author makes clear the relevance of the Swedish experiments to the future of adult education in England. She discusses the merits of the residential system compared with the system of evening classes, draws comparisons between the Swedish colleges and the nine institutions existing for similar purposes in England, and makes suggestions for our post-war development. From the study of the Swedish colleges, and the ... Read more

Collins, London, 1923. First Edition. Softcover (Suede). Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. From the compiler's introduction: "The ages suggested for the Scholars of this little School were ten to fourteen. These are long, long years of youth, equal to ten of the older, twenty of the aged: not only in effectiveness, but also in the sensation of time. Therefore it was not easy to choose the all-appropriate from our great and various literature. Something there might always be for fourteen to tolerate and yet for ten to hope to achieve. I have taken some poems for their happy, courageous, and honourable thought, some for the very poetry of poetry. The size of the book was, of course, limited; there would have been matter, from the stores of past and present, for fifty such books." Patterned brown end papers; Gilt titles to spine & front with blind-stamped design to front (of horses ploughing field with sky & reins in gilt.)

Aquarian Press, The, Wellingborough, Northants, 1987. First Paperback Edition. Paperback. Very Good/N/A. cover photo. by Howard Bartrop; For over half a century psychical researchers have tried. to explain so-called paranormal events in what they believed to be a scientific manner. The results so far have been inconclusive and confusing. The reason, Lawrence L.eShan argues in this important and timely book, is that parapsychologists have actually failed to take into account the real insights into the nature of the physical universe offered by twentieth-century science. With elegance and clarity Dr L.eShan shows that we live in a multi-tracked universe. What is impossible and 'paranormal' on one track is perfectly possible and normal on another. From this he goes on to suggest new and effective ways of understanding telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, psychic healing, and other psi phenomena: Above all, L.eShan eloquently defines the human focus of paranormal events, which in his view suggest ...

Near Fine/N/A. pink titles spine; cover painting by Chris Foss; colour & b/w. illustrations, drawins & diagrams throughout; "Starships, aliens, cyborgs, space cities, suspended animation, telekinesis - trappings of science fiction. Are they all fantasy? Or do such things have a grounding in 'real' science, pointing the way to what will happen in the future? The answer, of course, is yes. Long before atomic weapons, tanks, submarines, artificial satellites, and space travel, novelists like H. G. Wells and Jules Verne had put them in books. And for nearly a hundred. years other writers of science fiction have been stretching their imaginations .... and ours - .to encompass ever more bizarre possibilities, from alternate universes. to nvaders from outer space, some plausible, some downright weird.

Signed by Author. gilt titles spine; profusely illustrated throughout by colour & b/w. photo's.; "On Dover beach in the 1860s, Matthew Arnold found an image of the decline of religion, the 'melancholy, long, withdrawing roar' of the Sea of Faith. Twenty years later Nietzsche was proclaiming the death of God. Neither was saying anything essentially novel. For centuries changes in science, in historical thinking and in philosophy, set in motion by thinkers such as Galileo, Descartes, Kant and Hegel, had been eroding cherished beliefs - in a moral world­order, in another world beyond this one, in the very possibility of absolute knowledge or exclusive truth. When traditional dogmas have been dissolved away, we find ourselves quite alone, with no resources but those we can muster from within ourselves. But there is also another story.
