Panther, London, 1962 First Paperback Edition. Binding: Softcover. Book Condition: Very Good Condition. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. On 4th January 1863, a new weekly illustrated paper surprised and delighted fashionable Paris: it was the first number of La Vie Parisienne, founded and edited by: MARCELIN - the pseudonym of an illustrator and writer, Emile-Marcelin­Isidore Planet. Every Saturday morning, the pale blue-green covers revealed exactly what was proclaimed on the front­fashion, music, the theatre, travel, whimsicalities (this being very broadly interpreted), events of the day, and all the social happenings implied by 'high society'. A brilliant set of artists and writers made up Marcelin's staff and contributors, almost all of them writing under pseudonyms; they included such famous and diverse names as Baudelaire, Taine, Halevy, Colette, Dore, Forain, and there is no end to the list of witty talent that enlivened the weekly's pages.

1989 Reprint. Binding: Softcover. Book Condition: Very Good Condition. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. Fromm's great achievement in this book is the evolution of a language to reveal the contributions of Zen and psychoanalysis to man's "struggle to be freely born". He sees both as a means to enable people to "live their life" rather than "be lived by it". Author of The Art of Loving, The Fear of Freedom and many other works, Erich Fromm studied sociology and psychology at the Universities of Heidelberg, Frankfurt and Munich, and was trained in psychoanalysis at the Psychoanalytical Institute in Berlin. He devoted himself to consultant psychology and theoretical investigation for many years. He was Terry Lecturer at Yale University and lectured at Columbia, Bennington, the William Alanson White Institute of Psychiatry and the National University of Mexico. Erich Fromm died in 1960. 109 pages. Green titles spine. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 250 grams. Category: Psychology & Psychiatry; Zen; Buddhism; Consciousness; Religion & Theology.

Self published, Cambridge, 1932 First Thus. Inscribed by Author. Binding: Softcover. Book Condition: Very Good Condition. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. Inscription on front cover reads: "With the Author's Compliments"an extract from Vol. XXXII of the Cambridge Antiquarian Societ y's Communications; "Considering the variety of material of which so many early mortars were made, it is perhaps surprising that there are now comparatively few of these mortars known to exist. Mortars made of brass or bell metal were in very general use from at least the fourteenth century up to the end of the eighteenth century and, in fact, in isolated cases, especially by pharmacists, well on into the nineteenth century. They were used not only by the old apothecaries and possibly alchemists, but were a necessary adjunct to every household of importance for the grinding of spices, herbs, grains and seeds. That they were much valued is shown by the fact of the mention made of them in inventories and wills." Size: Octavo (standard book size). 32 pages. Item Type: Extract.

Trinity Hall Association, Cambridge, 1967 First Thus. Binding: Softcover. Book Condition: Very Good Condition. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. The first edition of this Register appeared in 1926, and further editions in 1931, 1936, 1948, 1954 and 1960. Editorial notes have already remarked on its usefulness and popularity. The present edition should be reasonably accurate, though nobody who is sufficiently familiar with the College has had enough leisure to do all that might possibly be done by consulting works of reference. In particular, the deaths of Hall men may not have come to the notice of the Editor, especially if they were not members of the Association, or had lost touch by not sending changes of address. This edition includes for the first time the names of men who first came into residence from October, 1960, to October, 1966, inclusive. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 123 pages.

Cambridge Univ. Press, Cambridge, 1932 First Edition. Inscribed by Author. Binding: Softcover. Book Condition: Very Good Condition. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. Inscription on front endpaper reads: "With affectionate regard from B. K. C. July 1932"; This brief sketch of the story of the "Clergy Training School" and its gradual transformation over these fifry years into the "Westcott House" of today has been compiled mainly from the official records of the Council, together with the reports and Ember letters which the various Principals have from time to time sent out to old members. It has not been possible within the small compass of this sketch to name more than a few of the many who have done good service to the place, and this we trust will be understood by all. That the story will have much of interest to outsiders is of course not to be expected, but it is well that those of us who in increasing numbers gladly acknowledge what we have received from God in the common life of Westcott House should have some knowledge of the thought and care and sacrifice which has on its behalf been gladly offered to the greater glory of God.

W. Heffer & Sons Ltd., Cambridge, 1964 First Edition. Binding: Softcover. Book Condition: Very Good Condition. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. This little book is not intended at all as a directory; the purpose is, by a judicious selection of the alumni of Cambridge University, to show what a remarkable contribution these men have made during the five centuries under review to the musical and therefore spiritual life of their country. It is the more remarkable when one remembers that from the Reformation until the time of Stanford as Professor, from 1539 to 1887, there was no organised instruction whatever. It is clear that the great musical colleges, Clare first and then King's, St John's and Trinity, poured forth from their chapels able men in each century to direct the music in the Chapel Royal, the cathedrals and churches of the land. There is no other institution in the world, save Oxford, that has anything like it to show. It is fashionable to favour some centuries more than others, but it will be seen that however disturbed socially or politically the country may have been, and however powerful the introduction of foreigners by monarchs such as Henry VIII, . Charles II, George I and II and Victoria may have been, a glance at the great names each period has to offer and the superb flowering of the renaissance at the end of the nineteenth century, leaves no doubt that a school of music in every branch of the art is to be found among Cambridge men today.

Oxford, New York, 1980 First Paperback Edition. Binding: Softcover. Book Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. revised in 1953 (with corrections to 1978) by Norman Davis who writes in his preface: "Sweet's Primer first appeared in 1882, and was last revised for the eighth edition of 1905. It is not surprising that in the interval methods of presentation should have changed. The Primer, though designed as an introduction to Sweet's Reader, has tended to fall out of use, but nothing has replaced it; and the Reader itself has often been used as a beginner's book, for which it was never intended. In the belief that an elementary introduction on the lines of the Primer is essential, I have tried in the present revision to preserve the policy and the scale of Sweet's work, while re­arranging it very considerably in detail. In the grammar ­ especially in treating the verb, where Sweet's classification has failed to find acceptance - I have sought to present the facts, with as few technical terms as possible, in the same groups as students will find when they come to more advanced books."

Routledge, London, 1975 Reprint. Binding: Hardcover (Original Cloth). Book Condition: Near Fine Condition. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. T. C. Lethbridge, who died in 1971, was an archaeologist, psychic researcher, dowser, explorer. He was for thirty years Director of Excavations for the Cambridge Antiquarian Society and for the University Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology. He was on three Arctic expeditions, several Hebridean exploratory expeditions, and two voyages to the Baltic in square-rigged sailing ships. Yet, as Professor Christopher Hawkes writes in a Times article: 'To divide his life ... would miss the unity in both his nature and his mind'. It is this unity that gives his investigations into the occult and the unexplained their unique mingling of specialist research, humour, and exciting originality and independence of thought. In this book T. C. Lethbridge writes about the excavation of a forgotten Neolithic chalk figure in the Cambridgeshire hills. He details the clues available and shows how they were followed up, and tells how the search ended in the apparent discovery of two other giant figures as well. The greater part of the book is devoted to a search into the meaning of these figures. Based on archaeological, historical and biblical information as well as folklore, his findings not only indicate the survival of an ancient religion but direct valuable light on the nature of the old gods themselves.

Malthouse Press, Ipswich, Suffolk, 1993 First Edition. Binding: Softcover. Illustrator: Mark Guthrie. Book Condition: Near Fine Condition. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. A companion to the joyous 'I MIND THE TIME', Roger Anthony Freeman's 'AS I WAS A-SAYING' catches the essence of true East Anglian village humour. The goings-on of the "owd boys" and "owd gals" make hilarious reading, and so do the antics of the gentry and the townies who have come to live among them. The old codger who smelt worse than his billy goat, the impecunious equestrian major who made good use of profanity to ward off his creditors, the "specialists" who were silently about the countryside when most folk were still abed, they were all encountered by the author during half a century of farming in the Eastern Counties. The rural communities of yesterday threw up many true characters. Those characters are the personae of this book. And, as they would say, these yarns will wholly make you laugh.

Paladin/Granada, London, 1980 First Paperback Edition. Binding: Softcover. Book Condition: Near Fine Condition. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. A country churchyard, says Ronald Fletcher, is more than just a burial place for the dead. It is a place which reminds us of a living tradition, the people and communities of the past which made us what we are. The author has traced many life stories hidden in the country churchyards of East Anglia where he lives. His generously illustrated narrative calls back to life with striking clarity a host of characters. Among them are: a cheerful hunchbacked little man who, though unfit for ordinary work, was given a useful part to play in the life of the community; a gentle, life-shy poet; and a man whose turbulent involvement in early American history belies the quiet of his resting place under an old yew tree in the East Anglian countryside. The detailed picture which emerges is one of a human community intimately acquainted with hardship, struggle and loss as well as the variety and warm humour of daily village life in late eighteenth and early nineteenth century England.

The Boydell Press, Ipswich, Suffolk, 1974 First Edition. Binding: Softcover. Book Condition: Very Good Condition. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. This is a poet's view of East Anglia, verse about East Anglia as well as by East Anglians. It is largely about its villages and lives of its people, and much of it, naturally, is about the farmer and his life. Crabbe is perhaps the only major poet represented, but the interests of these pieces is as much in their descriptions and subject matter as in the power of the poetry. The rural poet was an observer and keen-eyed. recorder of everyday life rather than a conscious artist, seeking the grand effect: and the result is an anthology of social history and social attitudes, by turns delightful, amusing and evocative.

Barbara Hopkinson Books, Norwich, Norfolk, 1986 First Edition. Binding: Softcover. Book Condition: Near Fine Condition. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. It is something to be thankful for that we are not all alike. The individual differences that separate us may be small but they ensure that everyone is unique. Many of us try to minimise our differences but there are those without such inhibitions who exaggerate their personal egos in one direction or another. All such characters are a bit larger than life; they are somewhat inflated, somewhat obsessive, even a little mad but we can be grateful even as we deride them since they show us how very level-headed we are ourselves. The people here chosen include those only mildly off-beat together with more colourful characters. There is a parson-highwayman, a man who washed trees, a super-fraud, a duellist and a miser. They are not Likely to persuade us that eccentricity is a good thing but they may enlarge our conception of the wide stage of life and the strange roles that some people play.
