S.S.
Self-Sufficient Small Holding
Soil Association, Stowmarket, Suffolk, 1977. Second Edition, Card Covers. Very Good/N/A. 9780905200101 illustrated by line-drawings, "this pamphlet is written to give practical help to those seeking a simple, self-sufficient life. It contains one man's experience on one particular organic smallholding where a certain measure of sufficiency is achieved. A family could survive on its own in complete isolation, but this would be a rather uncomfortable and insecure subsistence. Three or four neighbouring smallholders, working in harmony and pooling their individual skills, could live far better. Add a bit of modern technology and life becomes easier, with more leisuretime, less drudgery. The big question is "how self-sufficient does one aim to become?" Today one can choose one's level, seek the best of both worlds ... only a fool would deliberately make hardships for himself ... but this option clouds the issue, making it difficult to define one's ultimate, long-term aim. Tomorrow, however, we may well be thrown right back onto our own resources, in which case the question will answer itself. It would seem sensible to be prepared."; spine a little grubby; 18 pages.THIS BOOKLET IS POST-FREE - any postal charges indicated will be reduced to nil. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Sacred Grove: The Mysteries of the Forest
Capall Bann Publishing, Newbury, Berkshire, 1996. Reprint, Paperback. As New/No Dust Jacket. 9781898307129 The veneration of trees was a predominant theme in the paganism of the Romans, Greeks, Celtic & Germanic peoples. Many of their rites took place in sacred groves & much of their symbolism involved the cosmic tree; its branches supported the heavens, its trunk was the centre of the earth & its roots penetrated the underworld. This book explains the various mysteries of the tree & how these can be' incorporated into modern paganism. This gives a new perspective on the cycle of seasonal festivals. "The Sacred Grove" is the companion volume to "The Enchanted Forest - The Magical Lore of Trees, but can be read in its own right as an exploration of the mysteries of the tree.

ADAIR, GILBERT
The Postmodernist Always Rings Twice
Fourth Estate, London, 1992. First Edition, Brown Cloth. Very Good/Good. 9781857020670 black titles spine; "Culture - there can be few words whose meaning has undergone such radical revision in recent years. Once a term suggestive of exclusion and elitism, British culture has descended from the Leavisian and Reithian heights that it formerly occupied. Culture now encompasses all the various codes and practices by which our society constructs its own self-image. Tee-shirt motifs and BT commercials, the Gulf war as seen by CNN and the Gulf war as seen by Jean Baudrillard, Martin Amis's Time's Arrow and J.R. Hartley's Fly-Fishing, Pee- Wee Herman and pop groups' names, Benetton and Brecht - all of these, whether proper 'art' or not, are certainly what we think of, in the postmodern world of the nineties, as culture. In this brilliantly entertaining collection of articles, the novelist and critic Gilbert Adair forges a path through the labyrinth of what he calls the culture industry, and in a lengthy, previously unpublished essay proposes a startling and paradoxical redefinition of how it currently functions."; the price-intact D/J. has a crumpled top edge to the front & a small stain to the rear near the spine which has also lightly marked the rear cover on its outside; the book however is sound & the contents clean & unmarked; including index -215 pages.

Legend of Te Tuna
Sidgwick & Jackson, London, 1986. First Edition, Black Boards, Illustrated by: Rico, Ul De. Fine/Fine. 9780283993930 gilt titles spine; illustrated in colour & b/w.; "Three tremendous figures from the legendary world of the ancient Polynesian gods and heroes: Hina, beautiful goddess of the sky, the Polynesian Aphrodite, self-willed and shameless in the pursuit of her desires; Maui, the trickster-hero, half-human, half-divine, who, long ago, with his magic fish-hook, drew up the Pacific Islands out of the ocean and then, Prometheus-like, caught the sun in a snare and tied it fast to circle the earth for ever as the source of life; and Te Tuna, the terrible giant eel of the ocean depths, the most feared creature in the world. 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. When he learned that Maui had supplanted him, his wrath was more terrible than storm and earthquake. 'The legend fascinated me,' says bestselling author Richard Adams, 'from the moment I first heard it, some years ago, in Tahiti. I felt I had to try to write it for people this side of the world.' In this narrative poem he has retold unforgettably the greatest of South Sea legends, the tale of the duel to the death between Maui and Te Tuna, and of the harvest of that death, Te Tuna's divine gift from the grave. UI de Rico's superb illustrations, many in colour, form the perfect setting for Richard Adams' poem."; a mint condition copy; 71 pages. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Illustrator: Rico, Ul De.

For decades science fiction has excited the imagination with tales of flight to other planets, escape to other dimensions, lost worlds, utopias, mechanical creatures and intelligent aliens. More and more people have become fascinated by its unique mingling of technology with spiritual aspiration; of the serious with the escapist; of the intelligent with the lunatic; and of metal with metaphor.

In 'Trillion Year Spree' Brian Aldiss, Britain's best-known SF author, provides the first comprehensive and up-to-date history of this extraordinary phenomenon. Amusing, intelligent and authoritative, it takes us on a tour through that zone where literature and science engage in an eternal flirtation - the trillion year spree." including index - 511 pages.

 ALEXANDER & PULLINGER, JOHN & JOYCE, Roman Cambridge: Excavations on Castle Hill 1956-1988 (Proceedings of the Cambridge Antiquarian Society Volume LXXXVIII)
ALEXANDER & PULLINGER, JOHN & JOYCE
Roman Cambridge: Excavations on Castle Hill 1956-1988 (Proceedings of the Cambridge Antiquarian Society Volume LXXXVIII)
Cambridge Antiquarian Society, Cambridge, 2000. First Edition, Softcover. Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. Many of the excavations took place in the small areas which became available when individual houses were levelled, so that the information recovered was minimal, but the three larger areas, the market-gardens owned by St John's College, the farm owned by the Charity of Edmund Storey and the area around Shire Hall proved particularly important and have allowed an outline history of the town nucleus from the last centuries BC until the 5th century AD to be compiled. An unexpected complication of the fieldwork proved to be that the keeping of the hillside free from buildings for centuries allowed the quarrying of the valuable gravel and chalk marl of which it is composed and the digging of many pits. Only careful trowelling allowed the areas of early land surfaces and the wooden structures on them to be recognised. It will be noted from the plan of excavations (Fig 1.1) that work was largely limited to the upper hillsides and the summit, so that only a partial recognition of the early settlement has been obtained. The lower slopes and the area near the bridge have not been available for study and it may well be that these were more densely inhabited.
