Her unique guide contains an account of the permanent collections of paintings in British public galleries together with descriptions of the pictures in the royal collection and in university galleries which are normally available to public view. Most entries consist of a brief account of the gallery itself, its history and architecture, followed by notes on the major works of art, listed, as far as possible, according to place and time of origin. Minor works and painters, often the source of much pleasure, are not neglected and reference is made to other items of interest in the gallery. Near Fine/Near Fine.

ACKROYD, PETER R.
Exile and Restoration - a Study of Hebrew Thought of the Sixth Century Bc
London, SCM Press. 1968, First Edition. (ISBN: 0334004098). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. A Fine unmarked copy with dustjacket which has a small repaired closed tear to lower front. xv + 286 pages. The period of exile and restoration is a crucial one for the understanding of the development of Old Testament thought. The collapse of the state, the destruction of the Temple, the break-up of the community, all necessitated a re-thinking of the religious tradition. This book sets out to examine some of the aspects of the rich thought of the period. The problems involved are many: the course of events is not always clear, and the literature of the time presents difficulties. Much of this study is therefore devoted to a thorough scrutiny of what material we have: Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Deuteronomy, Isaiah, Haggai, Zechariah, the Deuteronomic History and the Priestly Work.

NICOLSON, ADAM AND MORTER, PETER
Prospects of England - Two Thousand Years Seen Through Twelve English Towns
London, Weidenfeld and Nicolson. 1989, First Edition. (ISBN: 0297795783). Hard Cover, 4to - over 9" - 12" tall. A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. A large format volume of 160 pages. Travelling together, author Adam Nicolson and illustrator Peter Morter have visited twelve small towns across the breadth of England, from Weymouth on the South coast to Alnwick, almost on the borders of Scotland. Each of these towns 'has enjoyed a moment when it has come into its own, when the forces at work have brought something to fruition and have given the place its enduring personality'. These 'shaping moments' - a different point in history for each successive town - are strung together in the book to form a continuous chain of town life from the planning of Roman Chichester to the radically nostalgic ideals of the Garden City in early 20th century Letchworth. The result is a remarkable portrait of small town England, with the triumphs of provincial architecture, rich with the details of everyday life, both now and in the past, lavishly illustrated with detailed plans and architectural drawings. The towns are Chichester, Sussex; Glastonbury, Somerset; Alnwick, Northumberland; Chipping Camden, Gloucestershire; Woodbridge, Suffolk; Blandford Forum, Dorset; Monmouth, Gwent; Weymouth, Dorset; Buxton, Derbyshire; Whitby, North Yorkshire; Hebden Bridgem West Yorkshire; Letchworth, Hertfordshire.

Shopping in Style - London from the Restoration to Edwardian Elegance
London, Thames and Hudson. 1979, First Edition. (ISBN: 0500012059). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.

In the two centuries since Adam Smith described England as a nation of shopkeepers, there have been many analyses of the importance of retail trade to the wealth of the nation. Yet few writers have explored the part played by shops and shopping in the everyday life of all the citizens of England's capital city, from poorest to richest. This book is a history of retailing in which trade statistics have given way to a many sided story of shopkeepers and shopworkers, shopping customs and customers. A fully illustrated social history which follows the topographical development of London and its shops from the Restoration to the period before the First World War. NOT EX LIB. Near Fine/Near Fine.

ADDISON, SIR WILLIAM
Farmhouses in the English Landscape
London, Robert Hale. 1986, First Edition. (ISBN: 070902813X). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Ill.: Bill, Joan. A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket. 175 pages. 22 line illustrations by Joan Bill. 59 photographs. In this charming and affectionate study, the respected countryside historian Sir William Addison examines the role of the farmhouse in English rural life. Much of the Englishness of the landscape is defined by rustic dwellings, constructed in a variety of individual styles. The hardy brick and flint farmhouses of East Anglia contrast with the timber-framed cruck constructions of the West Midlands, and the austere stone slab and slatework of Cumbria bears no similarity to the dainty cob and thatch cottages of the affluent south. Weatherboarding on Essex farmhouses characterizes the region just as chalk-mud walling is typical of the houses of Wiltshire. From Roman times to the present Addison traces the development of these distinctive buildings, describing the characteristics of each. NOT EX LIB. Fine/Fine.

Includes the separate Checklist of the Exhibition. Produced for the exhibition organised by the South Bank Centre in collaboration with the National Swedish Art Museums and the Spanish Ministry of Culture and shown at the Hayward Gallery, London from May to August 1989 and later in Stockholm and Madrid. To seek to present 160 years of the art of Latin America within one exhibition was hardly a modest aim. It has not been attempted before in Europe and as works of the period are almost wholly absent from public collections in Britain. The exhibition explores thematically and historically the emergence of what may be called a Latin America aesthetic and the questions of national and cultural identity associated with it.

Navigating Britain's Coastline - Portland to Dover

A Very Good + unmarked copy which has foxing to endpapers with VG dustjacket which has fading to spine. Presented in rectangular format. One of the main problems of small craft navigation is identification of landmarks and coastal features. Charts, though vital, give only the vaguest idea of the actual appearance of the coast. This book provides a picture of the coast, to scale, from the direction most commonly used. It consists of a series of views drawn from a distance varying between half a mile and four miles out to sea. Beneath each view is a simplified chart of the corresponding area, and guidelines between view and chart pinpoint all the useful identification features. Very Good/Very Good.
