OGDEN, JOHN
Silken Dalliance
. Thornton's 2009, 302pp. new hardback in d/j. This is the second part of John Ogden's military trilogy, the sequel to On Fire. It is set at the start of the 1950s in Western Germany, which had only recently ceased to be an occupied country and become one to be defended. It describes the life of an infantry regiment, as experienced by Captain Miles Player; the sub-plot concerns a tragic reunion with his former girlfriend, now married to a brother officer. The regiment spends a large part of its time recuperating from the hardships of the Korean War, the hero and his comrades indulging in wildly extravagant parties with a hedonistic superfluity of wine, women and song. In contrast, back at home, Britain was only just emerging from a bleak existence of socialist controls and ration books under Clement Attlee's austere government. (ISBN: 978085455040) .

PIGAFETTA, PHILIPPE OR EDOUARD LOPEZ,
Le Congo.
0. 1883. La Veridique Description du Royaume Africain, Appelé, tant par les Indigènes que par les Portugais, le Congo, telle qu'elle a ete tirée récémment des explorations d'Édouard Lopez, par Philippe Pigafetta, qui l'a mise en langue italienne. Traduite pour la première fois en français sur l'edition latine fait par les frères de Bry, en 1598 ..Bruxelles, J.J.Gay, 1883; 213pp. title printed in red and black, with three folding maps; publisher's printed wrappers; two creases in front wrapper, slight bump to top of inner margins of the last c. 60 pp.two gatherings working loose, pages partly unopened. Printed in an edition of 500 copies. Apparently the first edition in French. Even the publisher is unsure to whom to attribute the work: although the title-page names the author as Philippe Pigafetta (translated by Leon Cahun), the spine gives Ed. Lopez as author, rather than as principle source. Rare.
