BISHOP, JAMES. FOREWORD BY LORD BLAKE.
The Illustrated London News Social History of the First World War.
London, Angus & Robertson. 1982, First Edition. (ISBN: 0207148260) Hard Cover with dust jacket. 144 pp, 10 1/4" H. Profusely illustrated with b&w reproductions of photographs, drawings, advertisements. "The First World War, which claimed the lives of so many men on the battlefields of the Western Front, also profoundly affected the character and everyday life of the nation at home. It was the first 'total war' and the whole country contributed to the war effort. The unrelenting demands of the trenches eventually forced the Government to introduce conscription while, for those left behind, the state intervened more and more in the lives of its citizens. Hardships increased: food and fuel were in very short supply and rationing had to be imposed in 1916. The civilian population was also directly involved in the hostilities with the bombing raids of zeppelins and aeroplanes. But the war did bring some changes for the better. The salaried classes grew, working conditions improved and the war also helped liberate women who replaced men in factories and public services, and joined the armed forces. When the armistice finally came, in November 1918, Lloyd George promised 'a fit country for heroes to live in' - though the reality proved to be less Utopian. The Illustrated London News continued to publish throughout the First World War and was supplemented by The Illustrated War News. These magazines provided a vivid pictorial chronicle of contemporary events and enable us, today, to enter into the spirit of a bygone era. (The author) has written a fascinating and fully-documented account of these momentous years, complemented by over 200 pictures from the original issues." Light edge wear to boards. Dust jacket has one tiny edge tear, light foxing at top & bottom inside edges, very light edge wrinkling, a few tiny dents and faint line indentations on front panel. Very Good/Very Good-.

BLACK, M.H. FOREWORD BY GEOFFREY CASS.
Cambridge University Press, 1584-1984.
Cambridge, Cambridge University Press. 1984, First Edition. (ISBN: 0521264731) Hard Cover with dust jacket. 343 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w illustrations. "In 1984 the Press celebrates four hundred years of continuous printing and publishing, and this history gives a readable and not-too-formal introduction to that unique record. It is the story of the development of the printing and publishing arm of the University of Cambridge, from the medieval system of resident stationers who dealt in manuscripts to the present large printing and publishing house which produces computer software and audio cassette tapes as well as books (mostly now computer-set). The narrative is given its proper setting in the development of the University, which has inevitably determined the history of the Press itself; in the history of the book trade as a whole; and in the intellectual and political history of England which has at times affected the fortunes of the Press. There are anecdotes about powerful personalities, from Richard Bentley to Stanley Morison, which give colour and life to the sober black-and-white history of printing and publishing."

Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, some light browning on spine, small ghost sticker mark on rear flap. Very Good+/Very Good.

BLYTHE, RONALD, ED.
Private Words: Letters and Diaries from the Second World War.
London, Viking. 1991, First Edition. (ISBN: 0670832049) Hard Cover with dust jacket. 310 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H). "The Second World War was, among other things, a great 'reading and writing' war. There was a passion for books of all kinds, and also a remarkable outpouring of personal writing in the form of letters and diaries. The latter were actually forbidden in the services because they might fall into enemy hands, but this did not prevent them from being kept in startling quantities. The young especially, whether on the Home Front or fighting abroad, became extraordinary self-examiners and communicators, finding all kinds of outlets for what was happening to them in the shape of private records and correspondence. It was a time when people lived for letters, and when, since much of the war was spent in boredom by the average participant, reading became the perfect escape. The existence of a vast archive of Second World War personal literary expression has been well-known to historians, but it has not often been used to reveal the significance of the 'reading and writing' culture of this period. Ronald Blythe has a deep understanding of those days and in this collection of letters and journals has revealed much of their heart and soul. Half of the book is made up of the wartime writing of his friends; the other half has been drawn from the Department of Documents at the Imperial War Museum. This book is a personal statement that makes eloquent shifts from pain, despair and death to absurdity, laughter and bravery. It is a traveller's tale and a stay-at-home's tale. It is politically hopeful and romantic, and also down to earth. Read together, these confessions and descriptions from and to a Britain of nearly half a century ago create an astonishing impact. We see a world holding itself together by language, by words, and with skill and determination. The 'tone' of those days is often quite unbearably caught, with force and eloquence. (They create) a multiple autobiography of a unique kind." Dust jacket has soft wrinkle at top edge of rear panel. Near Fine/Near Fine.

BRODRIBB, JOHN.
Lner Country Stations.
London, Ian Allan. 1988, First Edition. (ISBN: 071101714X) Hard Cover with dust jacket. 144 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, floor plans, elevations. "It is almost impossible to describe a typical LNER country station - the nearest it is possible to come is to say that somewhere like Otterington was one, although it was certainly not typical. The problem of finding a common strain of styles arises from the diversity of the LNER's consituents, and its adoption of a policy of decentralised management. In addition to this, the relative poverty of the company mitigated against renewal and rebuilding. (This book) is structured along the lines of these constituent companies and, with the aid of over 170 photographs and 20 line drawings, (the author) relates the histories and unifying features of the many varied stations and branches in the LNER's area of operations." Light waviness to edges of text block. Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, minor rubbing, soft crease across bottom edge of rear panel, very small dint on rear hinge. Very Good+/Very Good.

BROZYNA, ANDREA EBEL.
Labour, Love, and Prayer: Female Piety in Ulster Religious Literature, 1850-1914.
Belfast, The Institute of Irish Studies, Queen's University of Belfast. 1999. (ISBN: 07735175X) Hard Cover with dust jacket. 291 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). "(A)rgues that Catholics and Protestants shared very similar views of Christian womanhood. Both lauded the influence of the virtuous Christian woman, used the same female role models from the Bible, and saw the home as the locus of the construction of female piety. Yet each group castigated the other for having antifemale values. Protestants developed the slovenly, drunken 'Biddy' as a stereotype of Catholic women and Catholics portrayed Protestant devotional and family life as cold and arid. Observers of present-day Northern Ireland will find these historical contrasts of immediate relevance." Contents: Introduction: Setting the Scene; "The Right to Labour, Love, and Pray" - The Cult of Domesticity in Ulster Religious Literature; The Virgin Mary: Model of Christian Female Spirituality; Women of the Bible and Early Church: Mortal Sinners and Model Saints; "A Future of Blessing and Service": The Moral Education of Ulster Girls; "The Wind in Women's Wings": Defining Roles for Women in Ulster Protestant Churches; "The Cursed Cup Hath Cast Her Down": Images of Women in Ulster Temperance Literature; "She Hath Done What She Could": The Gendered Construction of Female Piety in Ulster Protestant Women's Missionary Literature; Conclusion.

BUCHAN, WILLIAM. (JOHN BUCHAN).
John Buchan: A Memoir.
Toronto, Griffin House. 1982. (ISBN: 887601081) Hard Cover with dust jacket. 272 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w photographs. "John Buchan was a man of remarkably diverse achievements: writer, lawyer, politician, soldier, scholar and, finally, Governor-General of Canada. He was the friend of Roosevelt and of George V, of Henry James and T.E. Lawrence; indeed, there was scarcely a prominent figure of the twenties and thirties whom he did not know. His contemporaries are among the most successful men of their day; his novels, still widely read, dominated the market between the wars; his histories and biographies are much admired; his achievements in public office demonstrate a gift for government and a visionary wisdom. Yet through all his work there runs a thread spun of the simple beliefs by which he stood - courage, truth, loyalty, honour, compassion. Such a creed made him kindly, gentle and much loved; his untimely death provoked an enviable outburst of sorrow and sense of loss. To his publ ic, however, and to succeeding generations, he is an enigma, often mistakenly accused of attitudes he never held. This book, by his son, shows John Buchan as he appeared to his family and close friends, an appealing and intimate portrait of a man whose fame rests - perhaps wrongly - on his skill as a novelist. Drawn from the author's own memories, and from privileged and unpublished sources, this is an elegant study of the private face behind the public mask, in the light of an extraordinary career." Tiny soiling speck on top edge of rear board. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinking, a few tiny specks of soiling on inside, very slight fading to spine colour. Very Good+/Very Good+.
