Description:
London: Windrow & Greene, 1994. 96 pp, 10 3/16" H. Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs. "Various events contrived to bring about the cafe racer era, together with the advent of the rocker - and subsequently mod - cults. New motorcycles such a s the BSA Gold Star singles and Star twins, Norton Dominator, Royal Enfield Meteor and Constellation, Triumph Tiger 110 and Thunderbird and Velocette Venom created a new breed of enthusiast, while films such as Marlon Brando's 'The Wild One' expressed, albeit in somewhat extreme form, the biker-as-rebel philosophy. Add to this the potency of that biggest of all pop music phenomena, rock'n'roll, an increasing affluence and the mushrooming 'youth culture', and the ingredients were all in place. Famed motorcycle author Mick Walker provides a fascinating re-creation of the era, packed with period photos of the machines and their riders, with information on technical and design features, clothing and… Read more

Del Rey, New York, (1990, 1991, 1992, 1994), Ist editions. 311 pp, 324 pp, 339 pp, 337 pp, - mass market paperbacks - 4 volumes. "Magic had ravaged Caithe since ancient times, striking unpredictably and creating men and women with powers they could neither understand nor control. Only the ritual slaughter of such mad wizards held the land safe from fire and destruction. Yet, even in Caithe, some magic was tolerated by the Church and the people, though grudgingly. Long before, the King had been given such powers in a secret, forbidden ritual by a renegade wizard. And so far, his use of them had been beneficial to the kingdom. But how long could he continue, before the powers he had gained turned upon him, to strike him with the horrors of madness? Athaya Trelane was not thinking of that, however, as she sat in the dingy tavern. Her thoughts were of herself. For already the first signs of the dread powers were manifesting in her! They were a gift that could not be denied - nor could the… Read more

Description:
Norman: University of Oklahoma Press, 1990. 176 pp, 8 3/6" H. B&w reproductions, maps. "In the summer of 1792, two Spanish schooners, the 'Sutil' and the 'Mexicana', were ordered to inspect the Pacific Coast from Vancouver Island to Monterey. The schooners were commanded by two youthful naval officers, Dionisio Alcala Galiano and Cayetano Valdes. Assisted by their scribe and artist, Jose Cadero, they recorded their efforts to find the so-called Strait of Anian, a Spanish Northwest Passage. The full account, here translated into English, reveals much new information on the indigenous peoples of California, Spanish-Indian relations, and the successes and failures of the Franciscan missionaries. Also included is a vocabulary and catechism of the Carmel Mission Indians missing in earlier editions. In introductory chapters and notes, Donald C. Cutter supplements the authors' observations with a brief history of California and biographical information on the authors,… Read more

Description:
London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 2005. 574 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H). B&w photographs. "(B)y the end of the war, over 8.5 million men had been recruited by Britain and the average field strength of its armies was 3.3 million men. For the first time, Britain found itself obliged to field land forces equal to those of its Continental neighbours. Moreover, however uncertain its beginnings, by 1918 this was an army that had become the most effective fighting force on the Western Front. In this exceptional account of the administration of the British Army in the First World War, Messenger charts how this unprecedented new force was raised, trained and deployed. He looks in detail at the problems of recruitment and training and at the difficulties of integrating regular troops with volunteers, and, later, conscripted men. The central question of manpower, both on the home front and in the trenches, above all after the first enthusiastic flood of volunteers had dried up, is examined in… Read more

Description:
Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1984. 343 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w illustrations. "In 1984 the Press celebrates four hundred years of continuous printing and publishing, and this history gives a readable and not-too-formal introduction to that unique record. It is the story of the development of the printing and publishing arm of the University of Cambridge, from the medieval system of resident stationers who dealt in manuscripts to the present large printing and publishing house which produces computer software and audio cassette tapes as well as books (mostly now computer-set). The narrative is given its proper setting in the development of the University, which has inevitably determined the history of the Press itself; in the history of the book trade as a whole; and in the intellectual and political history of England which has at times affected the fortunes of the Press. There are anecdotes about powerful personalities, from Richard Bentley to Stanley Morison, which give colour… Read more
