Faber, London, 1977. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/Very Good. Illustrator: Alan Howard. The twentv-two stories in this volume are drawn from Norse mythology, Germanic heroic legend and Icelandic sagas, which between them make up the heroic literature of the Teutonic peoples. Coming originally from the Russian steppes, the Teutons spread all over North-western Europe, but their stories continued to resemble each other in subject and mood. A sense of harsh inevitable fate, stoical courage and loyalty to lord and kin mark them all. The book opens with 'The gods in their glory', a group of heroic myths describing the founding of Asgard and the triumphs of the god over their enemies. Then follow six Germanic heroic legends, including episodes from Beowulf and the story of Sigurd. The seven episodes from the Icelandic sagas illustrate their astonishing variety, the tragedy of 'The Burning of Bergthorsknoll' contrasting with the real-life adventure of 'The Ex ... Read more

Faust - Part One

(Translated by Philip Wayne) Goethe

  • Edition: First Edition
  • Book condition: Very Good Condition
  • Quantity available: 1
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.

S. B. Publications, Seaford, East Sussex, 1993. First Edition. Softcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. They lie calmer than any sea from the fringes of Cambridge into marshland to The Wash, far into Norfolk and Lincolnshire, more often than not emptier of life than when they were under water. The fields of the fens and marshland today are forbidden places for all but the few who till them, flowerless, in all shades of unbroken green in summer - corn green, sugarbeet, carrot, celery, dark potato and pale lettuce green, and where you spot the land returning to its old waterlogged state you come across a polythene ocean forcing the salad plants along. Gone are the hoeing and harvesting gangs, the women and boys crawling along the land singling sugarbeet or heads-down sowing or gathering potatoes. The Norfolk bonnets have long since been set aside or given to the folk museums. There are no autumn stacks to catch the setting sun. As a fenman and painter I love the space around me but I miss the warm fe ... Read more

Century/Hutchinson, London, 1987. Reprint. Softcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. 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. ... Read more

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 or count ...

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 is howeve ... Read more

Cambridge University Press, London, 1980. First Paperback Edition. Softcover. Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. Illustrator: Ewart Oakeshott. gilt titles on dark brown panel spine; illustrated by b/w. drawings throughout; "in this book Sybil Marshall transcribes the recollections of her parents in their own dialect. 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 f ...

ViragoLtd./Quartet Books, London, 1975. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/Near Fine. purple end-papers; 'In books on country life, the plough boy and the farrier have a far more popular appeal than the ploughboy's wife. Her story must be told.' Thus Mary Chamberlain introduces her fascinating social and oral history of the lives of the women of Gislea, an isolated village of the Fens - lives which spread, in memory at least, over a hundred and fifty years. Isolation is not new to these Fenwomen. Yet they feel it increasingly. They also feel, as do most women, that their stories are not important. The reader will not share this view - their lives tell us much that is both universal and unique about the experience of women - of girlhood, schooling, marriage, children, work, religion politics, recreation, old age. The accounts challenge the notion of the rural idyll, showing the limitations imposed upon the women of Gislea by their world. As well we get an extraordin ... 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 amalgamated in 1 ... Read more
