London England: Collins, 1960. Hardback. First Edition. Previous owners name crossed out to inside cover. Slight foxing to end inside covers. Wear to D/J. Browning to back of D/J. Price clipped to D/J. In this book the author sets out to give a broad outline of the policies, purposes, successes and failures of the British and Dominion Navies in thie world-wide struggle and to suggest what lessons we may learn from a study of these events. The aythor writes with the same simplicity and ease whether he is describing the movements of ships in a single action or the relation of a whole campaign to the strategy of total war. The narrative is thrilling; the analysis brilliantly clear. this is the more valuable as, aprat from a few set pieces such as the Basttle of the River Plate or the sinking of the Bismarck, the characteristic form of the last war at sea was a long series of convoy actions of which the Battle of the Atlantic was the longest and largest.

Description:
London England: Chatto & Windus, 1967. Hardback. The Epic Strain in the English Novel. Previous owners name and date to inside cover. Price clipped to D/J. Dr. Tillyard's new book carries into the field of the novel some of the principles which guided his The English Epic and its Background. Our conceptions of the novel are in a muddle, he thinks, and wae shall not get out of it 'till we make the word Novel as vague as the word Drama'. In prose fiction, as in poetry, 'the epic writer mjust express the feelings of a large group of people living in or near his own time': the epic kind demands also a certain largeness of scope, a variety and control of detail, and a sustained intensity. Dr. Tillyard finds these qualities in only a few English novels - Robinson Crusoe, three of Walter Scott's, Nostromo, and The Old Wives' Tale. He examines the workds of other writers - Fielding, Thackeray, Melville, Henry James, George Eliot, Joyce - in their relation to his theme. Dr.… Read more

Very slight wear to top and bottom edge of spine and corners of cloth. Blue cloth with gilt lettering. As the distance was considerable, it was important to make it as strong as possible, to stand any amount of sea they were likely to meet with before they reached the shore. It took upwards of an hour to form the frame-work and deck it. They then, having cut away the bulwarks, launched it overboard with capstan bars. The water under the lee of the wreck was tolerably smooth, so that the raft remained alongside without injury. They had next to lash the casks below it. 368 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions etc.).
