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

Damage (Dick Francis Novel)

By Felix Francis

Very Good 1st Printing. Inscribed " Happy Birthday Doreen, Felix Francis". Hardback with wrapper. SIGNED COPY. hardback and wrapper. Very Good 1st Printing. Inscribed " Happy Birthday Doreen, Felix Francis". Hardback with wrapper. The stakes are higher than ever in Damage, the fourth solo novel from Top Ten bestseller Felix Francis. Jeff Hinkley, undercover investigator for the British Horseracing Authority, is looking into the shady activities of a racehorse trainer. But as he's tailing his quarry through the Cheltenham Racing Festival, the last thing he expects to witness is a gruesome murder. Could it have something to do with the reason the trainer was banned in the first place - the administration of illegal drugs to his horses? Days later, it's discovered that many more horses test positive for prohibited stimulants, a scandal that could throw horse-racing into disrepute. It's no surprise when the BHA receives a demand - pay up or face the consequences. In order to limit the damage to the sport, it's critical that Jeff find the perpetrator . . . but he'll soon learn he's up against someone who will stop at nothing to prevail . . .Felix Francis is the younger son of thriller-writing legend, Dick Francis, with whom he co-wrote the four most recent Dick Francis Novels, Dead Heat, Silks, Even Money and Crossfire, with Felix taking an increasingly greater role in the writing. Sadly Dick died in February 2010 but his work will live on through Felix. Damage is Felix's fourth solo Dick Francis novel. Felix trained as a physicist and spent seventeen years teaching A-level physics before taking on the role as manager to his father, and then as author. He lives in Oxfordshire. B2

FINE BOOK AND FINE WRAPPER. Signed without dedication by the author. No other inscriptions, bright, clean, Wrapper not price cutPlease See Photos for ConditionA rich old man, Rupert Moncrieff, is beaten to death in the silence of his West Country waterside mansion, his head hooded and his throat cut. His extended family are still living beneath his roof, each with their own room, their own story, their own ghosts, and their own motives for murder. And in this world of darkness and dysfunction are the artefacts and memories of colonial atrocities that are returning to haunt them all. At the heart of the murder investigation is DS Jimmy Suttle who, along with his estranged journalist wife Lizzie, is fighting his own demons after the abduction and death of their young daughter, Grace. But who killed Rupert Moncrieff? And what secrets is the house holding onto that could unravel this whole investigation? The enquiry takes Suttle to Africa and beyond as he slowly begins to understand the damage that human beings can inflict upon one another. Not simply on the battlefield. Not simply in the torture camps in the Kenyan bush. But much, much closer to home B2

Hearts and Minds: The Battle for the Conservative Party from Thatcher to the Present

By Oliver Letwin

FINE SIGNED COPY (RARE) Hardback and wrapper. Oliver Letwin. SIGNED COPY : Signed on title page296 pages RARE SIGNED COPY ON THE TITLE PAGEAn important new book by one of Britain's great liberal thinkers, Hearts and Minds is part memoir, part political history and part history of ideas.In it, former Cabinet minister Oliver Letwin explains how the central ideas and policies of the modern Conservative party came into being, how they have played out over the period from Mrs Thatcher to Mrs May, and what needs to happen next in order to make the country a better place to live. Far from being a sugar-coated version of events, Letwin tells a story that he hopes will persuade readers that politicians are capable of recognising their mistakes and learning from them and will show that social and economic liberalism, if correctly conceived, are capable of addressing the issues that confront us today. The book also describes Letwin s own journey from a remarkable childhood with American academic parents, via Margaret Thatcher's policy unit, into the very centre of first the Conservative Liberal Democrat coalition, and then the Cameron government, where, as Minister for Government Policy and then Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, every piece of government policy crossed his desk. It includes Letwin's personal reflections on two devastating electoral events: the EU referendum and the general election of June 2017.Please See Photos for Condition B3
