CONNON, PETER. INTRODUCTION BY LORD WAKEFIELD OF KENDAL KT.
In the Shadow of the Eagle's Wing: A History of Aviation in the Cumbria, Dumfries and Galloway Region, 1825 to 1914.
Penrith, Cumbria, St. Patrick's Press. 1982, First Edition. (ISBN: 095082870X) Hard Cover with dust jacket. 134 pp, 11 7/8" H. Map endpapers. Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, reproductions, drawings. "(C)hronicles the significant aeronautical events which took place in the Cumbria, Dumfries and Galloway region from 1825 to 1914. The uninformed reader glancing at the topographical map may wonder as to what possible level of pioneering aviation activity could be sustained in a predominantly mountainous region where man is grossly outnumbered by sheep - yet between these years it was to encapsulate almost all aspects of man's aeronautical endeavour, from ballooning, parachuting, gliding, aircraft and airship construction to aero engine production. Cumbria is the birthplace of both British naval and civil marine aviation and for the first time the full exciting story is told aided by many previously unpublished documents and photographs." Small bump at top/bottom of spine and at bottom corner of both boards. Dust jacket has minor edge wear, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, very light rubbing, a few tiny dents on rear panel/hinge. Very Good-/Very Good-.

COULT, DOUGLAS.
A Prospect of Ashridge.
London, Phillimore. 1980. (ISBN: 0850333601) Hard Cover with dust jacket. 262 pp, 8vo (8 11/16" H). Colour and b&w plates. "Founded as the College of Bonhommes, an order of Augustinian canons, in 1283, Ashridge is again a College today, housing the world-renowned Management College, so that after 700 years the wheel has turned full circle. After the monastic period, Henry VIII used Ashridge as an occasional residence for his children, when it provided a backcloth to the uncertainties of their upbringing. The property passed to the Princess Elizabeth at her father's death and during Mary's reign must have been the scene of both drama and danger. After its period as a royal residence the Egerton family (Earls and Dukes of Bridgewater) lived at Ashridge for several generations, among them Sir Thomas, Lord Chancellor to James I, the 3rd Duke, known as 'the Canal Duke', and the 7th Earl, who replaced the crumbling monastic buildings with the present fabric. The latter's controversial will led to the estate passing to the earls Brownlow. Later, under the 3rd Earl and his beautiful Countess, Adelaide, Ashridge achieved an elegance of great distinction. After more than three centuries as a home, the estate was sold in the 1920s and became an educational foundation, first as Bonar Law College and then as the present Management College. This vivid and readable account is the first full-length study of the estate for over 150 years; and through his extensive use of contemporary records and some new archival material the author's prospect of Ashridge has become more than purely local history. Personalities are brought to life against the background of the building in a way that will appeal to a wide circle of readers. A piece of Chiltern history that often touches on national affairs, this work will be welcomed by many who know and use the Ashridge of today." Minor wrinkle at bottom of spine, tiny faint stain on fore-edge of textblock, faint water mark at bottom corner of front board. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, minor rubbing. Very Good/Very Good.

COWPER, FRANCIS. FOREWORD BY HON. SIR WILLIAM MCNAIR.
A Prospect of Gray's Inn.
London, Stevens & Sons. 1951, First Edition. Hard Cover with dust jacket. 187 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H). B&w plates. Presents "a view over the long and varied history of Gray's Inn from the Middle Ages till to-day. For the lover of London and the social historian, no less than for the lawyers, the fascination of the Inns of Court is irresistible. But this is more than a story of an Inn of Court and its members, or even of its six centuries of change in the shape of our legal system and the ways of the lawyers at study, at work and at play. Here Gray's Inn, starting as a manor house in the fields outside London, grows and changes as the city reaches out to enclose it. It feels the impact of religious change and civil war. Tudor, Stuart, Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian London grow up around it. The bombs of two wars devastate it. Yet through every transformation its continuity is unbroken. And the Author demonstrates the essential part which that continuity plays in safeguarding the conception of freedom under the rule of war." Scattered tiny light foxing marks throughout pages, foxing on endpapers and edges of textblock, dust soiling on top of textblock, small closed tear (archivally taped) at top of pages 113 to 130, light edge rubbing, faint discoloration on cloth on boards. Dust jacket has light browning and scattered foxing, light edge wear/wrinkling, small chips and tears - some with creases. Good/Fair.

DANIELS, JEFFERY.
Architecture in England.
London, Weidenfeld & Nicolson (Educational). 1968. (ISBN: 298762102) Hard Cover with dust jacket. Ill.: Leonora Ison. 128 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w drawings, floor plans, elevations. "Illustrated with over 70 line drawings and plans, the text spans over 2,000 years of architecture in England. The account begins with a discussion of the villas, camps and roads of Roman Britain, and shows how this heritage slowly decayed, giving way to the Romanesque imported by the conquering Normans. The soaring Gothic of the middle ages yields in its turn to another European influence, the Renaissance, which acquires its own English character. The Baroque, Pallandian and Neo-Classic movements are then analysed, and the survey is brought right up to date with the industrial and scientific revolutions of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and their effects on techniques and styles. Dominant architectural styles are fully defined and illustrated, and the many examples given will stimulate a study in depth by means of visits to churches, houses, castles, museums and modern streets and office blocks. The special value of this book for the student of architecture is the care taken by the author to illustrate his text at every point, with examples drawn from every field of architecture - ecclesiastical and secular, domestic and institutional." Dust jacket has been price-clipped, has one small closed tear, very light edgewear. Very Good+/Very Good.

DOUGLAS, HUGH.
Bonnie Prince Charlie in Love: The Private Passions of Prince Charles Edward Stuart.
Stroud, Alan Sutton. 1995, First Edition. (ISBN: 0750906057) Hard Cover with dust jacket. 242 pp, small 4to (10" H). B&w illustrations. "Starting from the inherited tendencies of his unstable mother, this book follows Charles's involvements with women, from the passionate, illicit affair with his cousin, Louise de Montbazon, following his return from the '45, which resulted in a son, and his cruel arrogance when he took a new mistress replacing her, to his rough treatment of Clementine Walkinshaw, who had nursed him in 1746, and who sacrificed herself for him. She came to live with him, and bore him a daughter, the 'bonnie lass of Albany', his comfort when the dynastic marriage he eventually made with the young Princess Louise of Stolberg came apart, leaving him an elderly cuckold. Judged the wild man of Europe as a result of his scandalous behaviour, Charles's boorishness and drunkenness had cost him the stability he craved, and in his later years he was both ill and lonely, turning to his daughter to satisfy his longing for the love that he had so easily cast aside in his earlier stormy relationships. She became the pride of his life, and when he died four years later, it was with the promise that she would be his rightful heir. (T)his timely book provides a re-examination of the Scottish hero whose flawed character and lack of success in love undoubtedly influenced his relations with the royal courts of Europe and played an important part in his role in the history of Scotland and England, perhaps contributing as much to the defeat of the Jacobite cause as 'Butcher' Cumberland's musket fire at Culloden."

DUTTON, RALPH.
English Court Life, from Henry Vii to George Ii.
London, B.T. Batsford. 1963, First Edition. Hard Cover with dust jacket. 232 pp, 9" H. B&w illustrations. "The atmosphere of a Court is enclosed and artificial. The monarch has in the past enjoyed a wide degree of power without a corresponding sense of obligation or responsibility; and for the courtiers, whose position depended on their agreeableness, flattery has always been at a premium just as frankness has been inhibited. How do men and women react in circumstances where normal standards of behaviour are inapplicable? This is the question which, by implication, Ralph Dutton answers in this book. Since his survey covers the three centuries from Henry VII to George VII it is natural that, in so many different courts and under the reign of so various a series of kings and queens, Court Life should appear in most of its possible forms. But in the moral forcing house of the Court a constant element, from 1485 to 1760, has been the tendency for personal virtues and defects of character to become exaggerated to an extent seldom met with in the prosaic outside world. As to the Courts themselves: the Coronations, Drawing-rooms, Progresses, Births and Funerals; the favourites, mistresses and politicians, and the palaces in which they met, intrigued and lived: as to all these, they provide Mr. Dutton with a rich topic on which to exercise his accustomed gifts for description, quotation and deprecatory comment." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, very light edge and corner wear, bump at top corner of front board - migrates as a small bump at top corner of pages up to approx. page 40, small store label at bottom of front pastedown.

DYHOUSE, CAROL.
Girls Growing Up in Late Victorian and Edwardian England.
London, Routledge & Kegan Paul. 1981, First Edition. (ISBN: 071000821X) Hard Cover with dust jacket. 224 pp, 8vo (8 11/16" H). "Girls learn about 'femininity' from childhood onwards, first through their relationships with the family, and later from their teachers and peers. Using sources which vary from diaries to Inspector's reports, Carol Dyhouse studies the socialization of middle- and working-class girls in late-Victorian and early-Edwardian England. She traces the ways in which schooling at all social levels at this time tended to reinforce lessons in the sexual division of labour and patterns of authority between men and women, which girls had already learned at home. In Elementary Schools, social anxieties about 'National Efficiency', high infant-mortality figures and a declining birth-rate helped to shape the curriculum offered to working-class girls through the period 1870-1920. The author then focuses on the emergence of a social psychology of adolescent girlhood in the early-twentieth century with its educational implications. Finally, she examines the relationship between feminism and girls' education through the period studied." Small faint area of soiling on front board. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, fading to spine color - lettering very legible - blank label on front flap, minor rubbing. Very Good+/Very Good-.
