Description:
William Collins, London, 2015. First Edition. Hardcover. As New/As New. Another volume in the popular New Naturalist series, this book gives a comprehensive account of the natural history of Britain and Ireland's inland waters, many of which are popular holiday destinations. Freshwaters form the fascinating threads that stitch together the landscapes of our planet with a myriad of exchanges involving an array of organisms, from algae and insects to hippopotami and otters. Healthy lakes and their shores influence our quality of life and they strengthen the economy. They are important ecosystems that can sustain a healthy balance of aquatic life, provide us with much enjoyment, and help support our socio-economic needs. At the same time they suffer the consequences of human abuses of the land – increasing urbanisation, intensive farming, drainage and an increasing invasion of non-native species, to name but a few. Moss explores the richness of their fundamental ecology, emphasizing the… Read more

Description:
Scottish Text Society, Edinburgh, 1912. First Edition. Hardcover (Quarter Leather). Near Fine Condition. quarter leather with gilt border line to green cloth covers; printed for the Society by W. Blackwood and Sons & illustrated by three fold-out facsimiles of the original manuscript & a 36-page introduction. The romance known as 'Lancelot of the Laik' survives in only one manuscript, Cambridge University Kk.1.5, and even there it is incomplete (only three Books and a Prologue remain), ending abruptly in the middle of the 3487th line. The ms. dates from very late in the fifteenth century & the writing of the poem has generally been placed not much earlier. Derived from the French prose Lancelot (c. 1215–30) the poem was written in a Scottish dialect, although that appearing in the Cambridge manuscript is far from uniform. Book 2 features an extensive “Advice to Princes” section in which King Arthur is given instruction on good kingship, which may be a response… Read more

Te Tuna, ruling the ocean from his submarine coral palace, was the lover of Hina - for as long as he could keep her love from straying.
