Description:
Penguin, Harmondsworth, Middlesex, 1949. First Edition. Softcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. Penguin Classics No. L12; Goethe lived to the age of eighty-two, and we know that the figure of Faust persisted in his thoughts for a period of sixty years, practically the whole of his working life. The First Part of his Faust is his masterpiece. It was begun when Goethe was in his early twenties, and finished, except for a few lines, in 1801, when he was fifty-one. (Part Two did not receive its finishing touches until the poet's eighty-third year; it is a complex work of idealism, removed from the human conflict of conscience and love that the poet gives us in Part One). It is the union of passion and wisdom in Faust , Part One that places Goethe among the master-poets of the world. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. 197 pages. Spine browned with age.

Description:
Macdonald, London, 1951. seventh impression. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/Good. Please don't misunderstand us when we say that Mr. Searle is what used to be called "a bit of a one for the ladies". This book might indeed have been described as an "lllustrated Guide to the Fairer Sex", but we think you will enjoy it best as a further collection of this brilliant young artist's highly amusing, and largely acidulous, drawings. Once again pride (or infamy) of place is given to the girls of St. Trinian's, but the field is large and the artist takes aim at all kinds and conditions of women, stopping at most stations between the cradle and a well-earned widowhood. Although the ladies dominate the scene, there are a considerable number of masculine sidelights. Man the hunter, for instance, may be seen up to no good; man the schoolboy early learns his place in the world; whilst Mr. Searle's superbly imperturbable Englishman is always around. And to put… Read more

Description:
Century/Hutchinson, London, 1987. Reprint. Softcover. Very Good Condition. This practical guide is an introduction to an ancient and potent Chinese art, which aims to minimise problems and maximise good fortune in the home and business environment. Feng shui - literally 'wind' and 'water' - evolved into a refined art from the simple observation that people are affected for good or ill by their surroundings: the layout and orientation of workplaces and homes. The Chinese have long observed that some surroundings are better or luckier than others. Every hill, building, hall, window and corner and the ways in which they face wind and water have an effect. So if you change your surroundings, you can change your life. The goal of feng shui is complete harmony, with the natural order which, when achieved, will bring prosperity, health and happiness. First Thus. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 169 pages. minor marking to covers. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. no Dust… Read more

Description:
Cambridge and Isle of Ely Education Committee, March, Cambridgeshire, 1967. Second Edition. Softcover (Saddle-stapled). Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. This short history of the Fenland is intended as an introduction to the evolution of an almost unique area of Britain. Until the 17th Century it was a waste of peat bogs interspersed with islands, sparsely inhabited by an independent race of people living in primitive conditions and existing mainly on the fish and fowl they obtained from the rivers and meres. The foresight and determination of a few men changed this into what is now one of the most highly productive areas in the country. Land, once valueless,now produces rich yields of sugar beet, potatoes, celery, carrots, grain and other crops which are supplied to the markets of London and elsewhere. For the benefit of the reader who wishes to read further on the subject, short lists of books are interspersed through the text and these may be obtained in most cases through the local public… Read more

Description:
Terence Dalton Ltd, Lavenham, Suffolk, 1969. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/Very Good. Map end-papers in green & white. The Great Ouse river rises in Northamptonshire, skirts a mile or so of the Oxfordshire border before beginning its journey through Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Huntingdonshire, Cambridgeshire, the Isle of Ely and Norfolk to the Wash. It flows through towns such as Buckingham, Bedford, Huntingdon, Ely and Kings Lynn. Its tributaries, with such delightful names as the Wissey, the Kym and the Lark, add the counties of East and West Suffolk, Essex and Hertfordshire. They also connect towns such as Leighton Buzzard, Cambridge, Bury St. Edmunds and Thetford with the main river. Whilst the river as a whole covers such a wide area it is as a Fenland river with extensive drainage and water conservation systems that the Great Ouse is usually considered. Rodney Tibbs has written "Fenland River" not so much as a guide book, in which role it… Read more

William Henry Edwards, her father, died in 1940, at the age of eighty. Mrs Edwards is still alive. Between them the Edwardses look back on a hundred years of life in the Fens. They speak in their own direct and vigorous way, richly figurative and often sardonically humorous, of the people and times they have known. The Fens are still markedly different from other parts of England, less accessible, less spoilt, and a little daunting to the outsider. The character of the land has produced its own way of life. Mr Edwards was by turns turf-cutter, boat-owner along the waterways, windmill proprietor, drainage superintendent and small farmer. So he and his wife saw each truly Fenland occupation from the… Read more

Field Marshal Montgomery gave high praise to the wartime exploits of one of the most colourful regiments in the British Army: 'This is a wonderful story, for it shows what the British soldier can do when properly led and how he responds to a challenge.' He referred to the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. Mention of the 'Thin Red Line' and 'Crater' immediately identify this fine regiment, for few others have ever caught the public imagination more surely than they. Nowhere is the strength of the British regimental system more vividly displayed in both war and peace than in their exploits. Originally… Read more

But he finds, amidst the strange, timeless atmosphere of the old house, the baffling maze and weird sculptures in the garden, and some harrowing experiences with a new mind-blowing drug that the questions he had at first posed lead to answers and other questions more disturbing than he had ever dreamed.) described by the author as "not fictitious in the pure sense" & as containing several events which… Read more

Now a professional historian and biographer has assembled all available evidence to present a gripping and insightful account of the rebellion, the complex, gifted and driven man who led it, the social conditions that produced it, and the legacy it left. Here is the dramatic re-creation of that stormy period which marked a crucial turning point in America's history. A much needed correction to historical fantasies .... grounded in the facts and excellently documented, this volume is essential for students of slavery and of the history of violence in America."; previous owner's name on front… Read more
