(MARIE MADELEINE MOTIER)
Peguy and Les Cahiers de la Quinzaine
London, Dennis Dobson. 1946, First Edition. Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Gilt title on blue cloth boards which are very clean and unmarked with no wear. Internally there is a small name to front endpaper and light foxing to closed edges and endpapers else very clean, tight and unmarked. A Very Good + copy. Dustjacket has light wear to edges, two small repaired closed tears and is not price clipped.232 pages. 5 illustrations. Translated from the French by Ruth Bethell. Charles Pguy (1873-1914) was a noted French poet, essayist, and editor, and Catholicism strongly influenced his works. It is remarkable that no book has yet been produced in England about Pguy, and this translation from the French fills the gap. It is a complete biography taking in the whole of Pguy's life from childhood to his death on the Marne in 1914, by a bullet to the forehead. The author was his friend and colleague for many years.

ABSE, JOAN
The Art Galleries of Britain and Ireland - a Guide to Their Collections
London, Sidgwick and Jackson. 1975, First Edition. (ISBN: 0283981423). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. A very clean and unmarked copy which has dust marking to top edge with dustjacket which has a protective cover. 248 pages. 19 illustrations.

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. 13. 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.

Thomas More is one of the great figures in English history, but his life and career bear little resemblance to the myth of the saint or of 'the man for all seasons'.
