OLIVE ANDERSON
A Liberal State at War. English Politics and Economics During the Crimean War
London England / New York, Macmillan/St. Martins Press, 1967. First Edition, Binding: Cloth, Very Good/Fair. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Hardback Hardback. First Edition. Previous owners name and address to inside cover. Wear and tear to D/J. Sunned spine to D/J. Price clipped to D/J. This book reveals the Crimean War in an unfamiliar yet momentous light. as Eruope's first object lesson in the challenge war presents to a state committed to political and economic liberalism. This is a historical study which ignores the well-worn tracks and poaches extensively on the economist's and political scientist's preserves, with an occassional sortie into the terriroty of the lawyers, sociologists and historians of ideas. Problems of government and administration in time of war rub shoulders with those raised by publicity and the press, while the impact of military disasters on class-consciousness and radical ideology looms as large as issues of finance and economic warfare. Here then in one book which challenges the recent verdict that since the Second World War the nineteenth century has not been an intellectually exciting period for historians, and provides an exception to the rule that there is generally a somewhat old-fashioned air about the ways in which this period is presented. 306 pp.

MAURICE ASHLEY
Rupert of the Rhine
Great Britain, Book Club Edition, 1976. 1st Purnell Book Edition, Binding: Cloth, Near Fine/Very Good. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Harback Hardback. Very slight shelf wear to edges of D/J. Prince Rupert of the Rhine, nephew of Charles I, is one of the English Civil War's most paradoxical heroes. Handsome, impetuous and courageous, he was the epitone of the Cavilier, yet he was born a German prince and a protestant. As the King's General of the Horse and later as Commander-in-Chief, he showed himself to be a brilliant strategist and an aggressive leader. His long-range objectives, however, were thwarted by basic tactical disagreements with his volattile uncle. The author brings a lifetime of research and writing on the seventeenth century to this much-needed modern study of Rupert's life and exciting military career. Controversial, wilful, often thoughtless, but far from being the ruthless German mercenary he has been frequently characterized, Prince Rupert emerges as a fascinating, altogether human figure - one of a handful of passionately dedicated leaders whose actions determined the far-reaching outcome of the English Civil War. Illustrated. 199 pp.
