Anthony, Piers

Very Good/N/A. black & white titles spine; the tenth book in the 'Magic of Xanth' series; "in the magical world of Xanth animals, humans, and even more exotic creatures live in enchanted harmony - at least most of the time - and anything and everything is possible. It is only natural that Esk, who has both the drawbacks and the advantages of being the son of an ogre and a nymph, is happy to join forces with Chex, a delightfully female cross between a hippogryph and a centaur, when their paths meet on the way to Castle Roogna. When they realise that Volney the Vole has even more pressing worries than theirs, they do not hesitate to drop their own concerns and set off with him to save the Vale of the Vole from the depredations of the demons who have taken up residence there. When they arrive at Castle Roogna, they join Princess Ivy of Xanth, who turns out to be a more than adequate substitute for the Good Magician they had hoped ... Read more

  • Edition: First Edition
  • Book condition: Good Condition
  • Quantity available: 1
Titus Wilson and Son, Kendal, Cumbria, 1929. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. Inscribed by Author. “This volume contains the Latin Verse written in concert by the Sixth Form of Wolverhampton Grammar School during the mastership of Alfred Robinson. These compositions, with the exception of Mr Robinson’s own versions at the end of the volume, are verses made to order, blackboard versions, the work of many hands: they cannot be expected to exhibit the unity of style and treatment that should characterize the work of the individual scholar working as the spirit moves him. But if these few versions, such as they are, can in any way serve to indicate the standard of excellence attained by that Sixth Form under the teaching of Mr Robinson, if they can in any way reflect his own untiring personal devotion during that period and serve as some memorial of his mastership, it will be enough.” The volume concludes with Robinson’s salute to the School, ' ...

Victorian and Edwardian Cambridgeshire from Old Photographs

F. A (Introduction and Commentaries by) Reeve

B. T. Batsford, London, 1983. Reprint. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/Near Fine. There is a quality of timelessness about the old photographs in this book. They record a pre-Industrial Revolutionary Cambridgeshire where hand flails were commonplace, a good hurdle-maker was a man of note, and woad was still grown for dyeing. The book is arranged in such sections as Towns and Villages, Rural Crafts and Industries, Special Occasions, Transport, People and Sport. There are pictures here of the activities particularly associated with the County: skating championships, peat cutting, osier tripping and soft fruit cultivation; as well as of subjects of more general interest: market days, horse carriages, windmills, royal occasions and village 'feasts'. The photographers whose work is represented include local men such as F. ]. Smith of Cottenham and J. R. Cooper of Burwell, national celebrities like Francis Frith, and - typically, in what is so often an anonymous art - many more whose na ... Read more

Oxford University Press, Oxford, 1997. First Edition. Black Cloth. Near Fine/Near Fine. Signed by Author. gilt titles spine; jacket illust. is the 'Doria' violin by G.P. Maginni; illustrated by numerous b/w. figures; "There are more curious beliefs about the violin than any other instrument. Physicists have now discovered how the violin family produce their sound, but this knowledge is not generally accessible to players and makers. In this book Sir James Beament, a distinguished scientist with a lifelong involvement with musical instruments, explains, without assuming any scientific background, how strings vibrate, and the role played by the bow, bridge, and body in producing sound. Those discoveries do not give a satisfactory picture of what we hear, and the core of the book explains how the sound relates to the sensations it produces. This leads to the conclusion that most of the myths about violins are groundless. but also that nothing can be achieved by applying modem technology to maki ... Read more
