179 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0719546923 8 colour illustrations. "This is not a cookbook in the usual sense. Nor is it strictly a travel book though it does tell somehing of far lands (Afghanistan, Roumania, Iran, Turkey, France, etc.) and circumstances, of local dishes in local settings from Rothschild feasts to Turcoman tents and the tables of Hollywood. Lesley Blanch herself describes it as a sketchbook, a work of nostalgia which evokes dishes, pl a c e s a n d people encountered while on the move through life. Here are Pushtu kebabs of lamb marinated in yoghurt and vinegar, shared with dusty but sumptuous Afghan horsemen, their eyes rimmed with kohl and their guns studded with turquoise; h er e br ea d a nd velvet - rough brown bread and thick clotted cream,offered at a Turkish wedding feast. Here also is kasha pilaff of buckwheat, egg and wild mushrooms, once cooked over a brushwood fire when partisans held up the Orient Express. An d her e a re 's tch ee' a la Stravinsky, Count Rumford's soup, cucumber sandwiches as Tolstoy ate them at Yasnaya Polyana, and 'tsuica' drunk to gypsy music in the garden restaurants of a Bucharest no longer to be found."

"The 'Savages on Gale Island' are the Rocksavage twins, Thom and Grizelda, who are to spend a few weeks on this remote island to recover from an attack of measles. The children are delighted with the island itself, but become even more excited - and somewhat bewildered - when they find themselves involved with gypsies, professor s , m y s t e r ious strangers and all kinds of puzzling goings-on, in a race for an unknown goal. Their natural curiosity and great common sense lead the two children to discover a strange secret passage running beneath their castle home; a myste ri ou s l ik en es s be tween someone long gone from Gale Island and someone recently installed there; and many other seemingly unconnected mysteries....Perhaps the strangest feature is the series of metal discs which Grizelda finds as the hunt pro gre sse s and wh ich sh e lea rns to interpret as a progress report of her rivals!"

240 pp, 8vo (8 5/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Map endpapers, b&w photos, maps. "...(ranges) over a wide variety of scenes, history, and great personaages. The famous Good Friday processions at Seville, the great Prado museum, the caves of Altamira, the gipsies, the appearance of a land still recovering from the ravages of civil war - all these are subjects for Frank Clune's vivid description. He writes, too, of Spain's great past; of the Christian Reconquest after the period of Moorish domination; of Ferdinand and Isabella, the 'Catholic Sovereigns'; of Magellan and Columbus; of Cervantes and El Greco. But whether he is describing the cool glories of Gothic architecture in medieval times or the hot excitement of a bullfight a t the present day, he preserves his happy knack of making the reader share his own sense of curiosity and wonder..."

Dust jacket has creasing along top edge, a few tiny to small tears, a few tiny foxing marks, light to moderate edge wear, slight darkening to spine and flap-folds, now protected in mylar sleeve.

254 pp, 8vo, hard cover in dust jacket.

Her name is Maggy Mileris and she is the daughter of Lithuanian immigrants, for Coaltown is a 'little Europe' and contains no less than thirty-five different nationalities working and living there, not to mention the gypsies who come and go, and the pedlar, Eli Kharam. Like most communities, only a little more so, Coaltown is full of snobberies, and Maggy, who had never thought that nationality was important, soon finds that other people think it is..."

7 Gmelch, Sharon. TINKERS AND TRAVELLERS.
Montreal McGill - Queen's University Press 1976 0773502718 / 9780773502710 First Canadian Edition. Hard Cover Very Good Fair Pat Langan & George Gmelch, photographers. 
144 pp, 10" H. Maroon simulated leather boards with silver lettering on spine, silver wreath on front board. Pictorial endpapers, b&w photographs, reproductions, music notation. "Should they be called gypsies, tinkers, travellers or itinerants? What kind of life do these people with their horses and wagons really lead? Do they want to settle, and if so, will they be allowed to settle? Now the old ways have changed, with the introduction of the 'dole' money, government stopping sites, and the pressures from the settled community. This book starts on an historical note with a chapter 'Where did they come from?'; it looks at the old skills, the secret language, poverty and evictions. Then we look at horses and 'blockers', fortune telling and travelling habits. The move to the city of so many travellers has created enormous problems, and the author examines the difficulties of getting work, and how the travellers make a living in their new city environment. A chapter is devoted to family, and it examines marriage patterns, chidbirth, personality and education, and following it is an examination of relations with the 'Buffers' as the settled population is known. The book is illuminated with direct quotations from the traveller themselves as they tell their own story." Previous owner's name and stamp in ink - also an embossed name stamp on free front endpaper, minor wear at one corner. Dust jacket has moderate to heavy edge wear/creasing with a few edge tears and old tape on inside, moderate rubbing, small area of print offset on front panel, very light browning on spine and flap-folds.

200 pp, large 8vo (9 1/8" H), soft cover. ISBN 184158438X Colour photographs. "Ever since its creation in the mid fifteenth century, Roslyn Chapel has cast a mesmerising spell over all who have visited it. Nestling in an exquisite glen barely se ven miles from the centre of Edinburgh, it exudes an extraordinary atmosphere, serene yet charged, as if it holds the secret of some vast, unearthly mystery. Almost 600 yers after its creation it remains an enigma that continues to confoun d a n d i n t rigue thousands of people, inspiring stories of The Knights Templar, the Holy Grail and a myriad of esoteric beliefs. Now, with the film of Dan Brown's best-selling 'The Da Vinci Code', Rosslyn is set to capture the imagination of c ou n tl es s o th er s. In this book, Roddy Martine sifts through mounds of unfounded conjecture and fantasy to make sense of it all. (This) is the only book that lets the facts speak for themselves, showing ultimately that the truth is no less a maz in g t han f ic tio n." S mall bump to top corner of pages and covers, soft crease at top corner of rear cover, three very tiny dints on front cover. Very Good-

12 Simpson, William R; Simpson, Florence K.; Samuels, Charles. HOCKSHOP. (THE FABULOUS STORY OF THE "EMPERORS OF PAWNBROKING".)
Random House, New York, 1954, first edition. 
311 pp, 8vo (8 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w plates. "This anecdotal profile tells the story of the fabulous 'Emperors of Pawnbroking' - the William (Hockshop) Simpsons who for five generations maintained the oldest, best-known and most respected pawnshop in the United States. This bizarre family business began in 1822 when the first William Simpson came from England and set up New York's first hockshop. From the era of O. Henry to that of Damon Runyon, the Simpsons did business with gypsies, morticians, gamblers, actors, sportsmen and thousands of others who came to their store to solve unique personal problems. Among the items handled by the Simpsons were the fabulous Hope Diamond, a Stradivarius, a ten-volume History of the Jews, fifteenth-century manuscripts, paintings, a set of Chinese screens, rugs, linens, coins, antiques, watches and a Crusader's giant thumb ring. The people who hocked these varied treasures were famous and infamous, rich and poor, e t h i c a l a nd not so ethical. There are stories here about 'sleepers' - those unexpected bargains that turn up so rarely, and there is an expose of clever frauds and shady tricks used in the past. In addition, the appendix covers techniques an d cu st om s of pa wnbroking and gives five basic rules for hockers, plus a brief history of borrowing and lending through the ages. Here you will learn how to protect yourself, how to tell genuine from fake merchandise, some dependable trade n ame s, an d h ow to de t erm ine value." Very light browning to pages, light browning to fore-edge and bottom of textblock, light soiling on bottom of textblock, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, book slight cocked, a few small faint waterm arks on top of tex tbl ock.

Unfortunately, Alexander Wylie, a particularly unpleasant wizard, is also after Alicorn, but while Eva only wants to return to the silver screen, his purpose is much more sinister.
