Hawker Hurricane Survivors

By Gordon Riley

Hardback. Condition: Fine book and wrapper. Language: English. . With 2015 being the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain arguably the Hawker Hurricanes finest hour it is appropriate to tell the story of the surviving Hurricanes from around the world. Building on research originally started thirty years ago, the author has delved into the archives to amass new information and in the process managed to identify positively one particular Hurricane which had proved elusive for more than forty years. Today a number of Hurricanes are being privately restored globally. However the oldest in existence, a veteran of both the British Expeditionary Force to France in 1939 and the Battle of Britain is displayed in the Science Museum, London and the youngest the very last Hurricane ever built is still flying with the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. This book documents each aircraft by country of origin and mark by mark from the day it left the factory up to the present day. Some have incredible histories whereas others served in very mundane, but still essential, second-line roles until they were disposed of. Where possible each aircraft is illustrated with a present-day photograph together with others taken throughout its life. From the serious enthusiast to the casual museum or air show visitor this is an excellent book. Please look at photos for condition. B4

INTO THE MOUNTAIN. A Life of NAN SHEPHERD

INTO THE MOUNTAIN. A Life of NAN SHEPHERD

By Charlotte Peacock

SCARCE First Edition Hardback with wrapper. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. FINE COPY . AUTHOR SIGNED (RARE ). In the 1930s, the writer and poet, Nan Shepherd was one of North-East Scotland's best known literati. Three novels, The Quarry Wood, The Weatherhouse and A Pass in the Grampians and a volume of poetry, In the Cairngorms, published between 1928 and 1934 while she was still only in her thirties, established her reputation as one of the most highly respected members of the Scottish modernist movement. Currently best known for her masterpiece of mountain literature The Living Mountain, (first published in 1977) Nan Shepherd, who died in 1981, has been in the news recently. Her image now graces the new Scottish $5 note; The Living Mountain has become a classic and sells in its thousands. Nan Shepherd lived all her life in Deeside, yet few people, even in Scotland, seem to have heard of her. But then, indifferent to celebrity, Nan Shepherd had a talent for silence. Elusive, enigmatic, she was reticent about herself, even to those who were lifelong friends. Long overdue, this first biography, unravels some of the mysteries, dispels some of the rumours and gives insight into the life and work of this perceptive and intensely private woman. The author, Charlotte Peacock has been as successful in finding her way into the life of her subject as Nan herself was in 'finding her way into the mountains.' The writer has had unparalleled access to all Nan's archives and to all her remaining friends and acquaintances. The result is a beautifully written biography that will surely become the standard life of Nan Shepherd. Please See Photos for Condition B2
