THE YOUNG ARDIZZONE:  AN AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL FRAGMENT., Ardizzone, Edward.
2 Ardizzone, Edward. THE YOUNG ARDIZZONE: AN AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL FRAGMENT.
London Studio Vista 1970 289797721 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good Edward Ardizzone. 
144 pp, 10" H. "The story (Ardizzone) tells here is of his own childhood up to the time he started his career as an artist. Evoking a period as well as having a lot of fun remembering, it is fragmentary, charming and very much alive, sometimes because a particular character, escapade or adventure is sharply etched in his memory, sometimes, on the contrary, because the edges are blurred and the episode or person half-forgotten. Like his children's books, there are illustrations on every page, half of them in colour and half in black and white. Many of these drawings (which were all made specially for this book) are among his best work and together with the text they make up a unique 'autobiograpical fragment' - a kind of children's book for grown ups, which the publishers think that a great many children will also enjoy if their parents allow them to read it." Edward Ardizzone "is probably best-known and most-loved for the Tim and Lucy books which he wrote himself as well as illustrated." Bump at top of rear hinge, very light lean to spine. Dust jacket has wrinkling at top of spine and at top edge of front panel, light toning to spine and top of front panel - very light toning elsewhere, light wrinkling at bottom of spine and top/bottom of flap-folds.

3 Bailey, Alfred Goldsworthy. THE CONFLICT OF EUROPEAN AND EASTERN ALGONKIAN CULTURES 1504-1700: A STUDY IN CANADIAN CIVILIZATION.
Toronto University of Toronto Press 1969 802015069 Second Edition Hard Cover Fine Very Good 
218 pp, 10" H. "This study examines the conflict between the Europeans and the Indians precipitated by the arrival of the French in the New World. The Indians were necessarily affected by the fur trade and the religious and social development of New France, and the meeting of contrary cultures resulted in most cases in the obliteration of that of the Indian. However, a fusion of Indian and European elements sometimes occurred, resulting in the birth of a 'Canadian' culture. First published in 1937, this volume is a reprinting of the original text with the addition of an index and a chapter appraising some of the leading developments of the past few years." Contents: Preface to the First Edition; Reappraisals; The Aboriginal Population; Occasional Contact on the Gulf Coast; Acadia at the Turn of the Century; The Eastern Algonkians and the Balance of Power; The Displacement of Materials; Drunkeness and Regulation; Disease and Treatment; Political Modification, Social Disintegration; The Effect of Contact on the French; Religion; Art, Pictography, and Music; Mythology; Bibliography; Notes; Index.

AGRICOLA AND THE CONQUEST OF THE NORTH., Hanson, W.S.
6 Hanson, W.S. AGRICOLA AND THE CONQUEST OF THE NORTH.
B.T. Batsford, London, 1987, first edition. 
210 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0713406070 B&w maps, plans, photographs. "Under the governorship of Agricola (AD 77-84) the Romans extended their conquest of Britain to North Wales, northern Britain and, with the vi ctory at Mons Graupius, to northern Scotland. In this thorough - yet eminently readable - reassessment of the literary, epigraphic and archaeological evidence, William Hanson shows just how this rapid progress was achieved and at the same t i m e c o n s iders how far the governor himself was responsible for the Roman successes. The major theme running through his study is that the exceptionally full literary evidence, in the form of Tacitus' biography of Agricola, should not be g i ve n un du e w ei gh t against the archaeological evidence - particularly as Tacitus was writing about his own father-in-law. Indeed, the book's conclusion is that, contrary to the impression deliberately created by Tacitus, Agricola himself was n ot a maj or fi gur e o f h is day and his achievements in Britain were in no way extraordinary. In particular it shows that the effects of the brief Roman presence in Scotland was negligible. Throughout, Dr. Hanson....uses the latest archaeolo gic al ev iden ce to full adv anta ge in constructing this period of British history under the Romans. In particular, he is able to draw on his experience excavating the important Agricolan site at Red House, Corbridge and the recently discovered Agri col an fort at Elg inhau gh, j ust o uts ide Edinburgh."

TRAFALGAR AND THE SPANISH NAVY., Harbron, John D.  Inscribed by author.

Conway Maritime Press, London, 1988. 
178 pp, small 4to (10 7/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. INSCRIBED AND DATED BY AUTHOR ON TITLE PAGE. ISBN 0851774776 B&w photographs, maps, reproductions, drawings, colour plates. "Contrary to popular opinion, the defeat of the Armada was not the end of the Spanish Navy as a major maritime power. Indeed it underwent a real renaissance in the eighteenth century, and at the beginning of the Napoleonic Wars was the third largest navy in the world. Its ships were well designed and superbly built, and were officered by brave and dedicated professionals, who were nowhere near as ineffective in combat as often represented. This is the first English language book to look at Spanish naval forces in the century before Trafalgar, an d p r o v i des a long overdue reassessment of the aims and achievements of the service. Following a brief overview of the factors which shaped development and the main maritime events, more detailed chapters cover Spanish warship design and const ru c ti on , an d the much-maligned officer corps, concluding with sections on the battle itself and its significance to Spain....It is illustrated throughout with contemporary plans, paintings and ship models, and will prove stimulating reading for la ym an and s pec ia list alike."

8 Harsh, Joseph L. CONFEDERATE TIDE RISING: ROBERT E. LEE AND THE MAKING OF SOUTHERN STRATEGY, 1861-1862.
Kent State University Press, Kent, Ohio, 1998. 
278 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0873385802 B&w plates, maps/battle plans. "In this reexamination of Confederate war aims, (the author) anayzes the military policy and grand strategy adopted by Robert E. Lee and Jeffe rson Davis in the first two years of the Civil War. Recent critics of Lee have depicted him as a general of tactical brilliance, but one who lacked strategic vision. He has been accused of squandering meager military resources in vain pursu i t o f d ecisive victories during his first two years in field command. Critics of Davis claim he went too far in adopting a 'perimeter' policy which attempted to defend every square mile of Southern territory, scattering Confederate resources t oo t h in ly . Harsh argues, to the contrary, that Davis and Lee's policies allowed the Confederacy to survive longer than it otherwise could have and were the policies best designed to win Southern independence. The Confederacy needed to retain the re so urc es of the upper South, and wanted to include the border states, so its aims were offensive rather than defensive. For the most part, Davis encouraged his field commanders to undertake aggressive operations, but it was not until Lee took com man d of th e A r my of Northern Virginia that Davis found a general with the intelligence and courage to invent and then execute a cogent strategy which gave the South a chance to win the war."

9 Laffin, John. JACKBOOT: THE STORY OF THE GERMAN SOLDIER, 1713-1945.
Barnes & Noble, New York, 1995. 
238 pp, 8vo (8 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1566197503 B&w illustrations. "(T)races the background and influences that shaped the character of the German soldier from the time of Frederick the Great to the end of the Second World War. ...Laffin provides an illuminating account of the attitude of the individual soldier to the increasing militarism of the years before the First World War. Included here are extracts from letters written by young German soldiers who, in spite o f t h e mud and carnage, regarded the war as a sacred mission that would bring honor and glory to their country. After Germany's defeat the Treaty of Versailles came as a blow to German pride and helped pave the way to the Second World War. P s yc ho l og y no w played a role in the German soldier's training, and emphasis was given to individual initiative - a concept wholly contrary to the old training that required strict obedience. But such preparation was no match for the Russian wi nt er of 19 42, a nd John Laffin's graphic account of that ill-fated campaign, culminating in the defeat at Stalingrad, pays tribute to German tenacity and resourcefulness."

10 Layman, R.D. NAVAL AVIATION IN THE FIRST WORLD WAR: ITS IMPACT AND INFLUENCE.
London Caxton 2002 1840673141 / 9781840673142 Reprint Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good+ 
224 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H). B&w photographs. "This superbly-researched book gives a complete overview of all aspects of naval aviation in the First World War; its significant influence on operations and strategy, which has never before been properly explained, is detailed by R D Layman in this far-reaching survey. Furthermore, Britain's Royal Naval Air Service, sponsored by the pro-aviation First Lord of the Admiralty Winston Churchill, pioneered many aspects of aerial warfare, including strategic bombing, anti-submarine warfare and the development of long-range aircraft, and the development of ships to carry aircraft, from the seaplane-carriers of 1914 to HMS Argus, the first flat-top aircraft carrier. And finally this book lays to rest the myth of the 'Battleship Admirals' whose conservatism and dislike of aircraft were said to have prevented naval aviation achieving its full potential. On the contrary, the naval high commands on all sides were very keen to exploit the possibilities offered by aviation, and indeed made demands of their fledgling naval air arms that were beyond the capabilities of the available technology. New light is shed on little-known aspects of the naval war in the air, including the operations of the Imperial Russian Navy's seaplane-carrier squadron in the Black Sea, the world's first 'carrier strike force', the Royal Navy's use of observation balloons tethered to ships, and the vital role played by aviation in the ill-fated Gallipoli campaign."

Barnsley Pen & Sword 2008 1844158586 / 9781844158584 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good+ 
272 pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w photographs, reproductions. "Wounded Allied personnel were invariably repatriated by hospital ships, which ran the gauntlet of mined waters and gambled on the humanity of the U-Boat commanders. For, contrary to the terms of the Geneva Convention, on occasions Germany had sunk the unarmed hospital ships under the pretence they carried reinforcement troops and ammunition. The press seized on these examples of 'Hun Barbarity', especially the drowning on non-combatant female nurses. The crises heighened following the German Government's 1 February 1917 introduction of unrestricted naval warfare. The white-painted Allied hospital ships became, in German eyes, legitimate targets for the U-Boats. As the war on the almost 100 strong fleet of hospital ships intensified the British threatened reprisals against Germany, in particular an Anglo-French bombing raid upon a German town. Undeterred the Germans stepped up their campaign sinking two hospital ships in swift succession. Seven hospital ships struck mines and a further eight were torpedoed. Faced with such a massacre of the innocents Britain decided her hospital ships, painted and brightly lit in accordance with the Geneva Convention, could no longer rely on this immunity. The vessels were repainted in drab colours, defensively armed and sailed as ambulance transports among protected convoys. Germany had successfully banished hospital ships from the high seas."

244 pp, 8vo (8 11/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photographs, maps. At the time of the author's tour, visits to Russia were carefully orchestrated affairs, watched over by government officials. "But what if you go as a private individual? Bernard Newman determined to find the answer to this question during the summer of (1958), and his account of his lone pilgrimage makes a fascinating book of the first importance. By simple devices at the disposal of any tourist he went m o r e o r l ess where he pleased, had dozens of conversations with ordinary people and enjoyed the hospitality of many a Russian home. Once the barrier of suspicion was penetrated, he found the Russians as friendly as the people of most other g re at n at i on s. H is meetings with them were disarmingly informal and quite the contrary to common experience. Then he was arrested, and he saw at first hand the police state at work. He saw something of the power of the Communist party lead er, of th eir d isr ega r d f or truth, of individual freedom, of human rights. It was a grim experience, and was in marked and sombre contrast to his earlier friendly encounters with the Man-in-the-Street. (This) is a balanced and trustworthy pict ure of a nat ion liv ing un der Communism, an existence which has been variously described by other writers as heaven, or as hell. In his description of it Bernard Newman has not fallen into the pitfalls of extremes. Instead, he has set asi de pr ejud ice a nd in an objec tive an d no n-political account tells us precisely what he saw and did."
