3 Armstrong, Keith, Editor. OUR VILLAGE: MEMORIES OF THE DURHAM MINING COMMUNITIES.
Seaham, Durham The People's History 2000 1902527321 / 9781902527321 First Edition Soft Cover Very Good 
128 pp, 9 7/16" H. Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs. " 'Our Village' reflects the pains and joys of the people of the Durham Coalfield during a period of drastic change. It is a selection from a series of community publications the author has been involved in over the last 20 years. The general idea behind all these projects has been to let the people speak for themselves in conversation and in their songs and poems. Mixed with over 130 vivid photographs of their local communities, what comes across is a passionate, and often agonising, account of the social upheaval County Durham has experienced. The memories, poems and photographs will interest and enthuse young and old alike. There is gloom aplenty but also wit and vitality in what people have to say. From the banks of the Derwent to the Weardale hills, from the beaches of Easington to proud Westoe, they tell their tales and laugh and cry." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - very minor edge wear, very small corner crease and minor rubbing on rear cover.

Collins, London, 1967. 
153 pp, 7 3/8" H, hard cover in dust jacket. B&w illustrations. "Enid Blyton did not mean to write this book. There were already four books in this Mystery Series, all about Roger, Diana, Snubby and his mad little spaniel - four books in which th e circus boy, Barney, was seeking his unknown father. In 'The Rubadub Mystery' he found him - and that was to be the end of the series. But the lovers of these 'Barney Books' begged so hard for yet another, that there was nothing for it b u t t o w r i te a fifth. So here it is, sure of a tremendous welcome, for here are all the well-loved characters again - with Loony the spaniel and Miranda the monkey, madder and more comical than ever! A winter holiday down at Rat-at-Tat Hou se , in th e s no w- cl ad hills, cut off from everywhere - and mystery and adventure spring up out of the snow! Who came knocking at night! Whose were the mysterious footprints in the snow? What was the wandering Snowman? What was hidden in th e c el lar ? T hi s is ind eed a very strange mystery - an Enid Blyton Mystery which, as ever, will hold your attention from the first word to the last."

9 Cannan, Joanna. OXFORDSHIRE. THE COUNTY BOOKS SERIES.
London Robert Hale 1975 Hard Cover Very Good- Good- 
276 pp, 8vo (8 11/16" H). B&w photographs, fold-out map at rear. "For all the beauty and variety which it offers, Oxfordshire has been always overshadowed by the fame of its county town; visitors speed along the great roads which lead to 'the dreaming city', ignorant alike of the lovely lost stone villages of the north and the remote valleys hidden among the beechwoods of the south-west. Everyone knows the Thames, but Oxfordshire has other rivers: 'gentle' Evenlode, sparkling Windrush, reedy Thame. The towers of Oxford are world-famous, but the county has Norman churches by the dozen and, though her castles are fallen, a wealth of old manor houses and ancient farmsteads, exquisitely grouped. In this book the author, born and bred in Oxford, has endeavoured to recapture the atmosphere of lost splendour which pervades the shire, to be wandered through and dreamed in rather than methodically toured." Minor browning on endpapers, tiny bump to bottom corner of approx. pages 103 to 130, light browning to edges of textblock - tiny stain on top of tect block and on fore-edge, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light to moderate browning, moderate edge wear/wrinkling, several small chips, 1" chip missing from top of spine, tear at top of rear hinge with old tape on inside - now protected in removable mylar sleeve.

Don Mills Collier-Macmillan 1973 029734207 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Good+ 
253 pp, 10 1/4" H. Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs. "1973 marks the centennial anniver- sary of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. (This book is) a pictorial tour of adventure through those glorious early days. One hundred years is not long when we are talking about history, but a glance at these photographs shows the phenomenal growth of Canada during that period. And the man who laid the groundwork for this phenomenal growth was the Mountie. Without his work of pacification, the task of settling and civilizing the Canadian west could not have been carried out. The photographers who took these pictures must have been imbued with the same spirit of adventure that motivated the Mountie. The proof is here. Wherever the men of the N.W.M.P. went, the photographers followed. The results of their work are here, a fitting tribute to the men of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police." Tiny soft bump at top corner of pages 163 to end of book, previous owner's small label on front pastedown, very faint tiny foxing marks on bottom of text block, minor wrinking at bottom of spine.

134 pp, 11 1/4" H. B&w photographs. "The old-time Christmas concert is remembered almost unanimously by participants and onlookers alike as 'the biggest day of the year'. Every phase of the concert is featured in this wonderful book: from the first rehearsals to the unpredictably disastrous moments on concert night; from the welcome speech by a nervous preschooler to the climax of the program, the nativity pageant. The monologues and drills, costume songs and plays, gymnastics displays and minstrel acts are recalled vividly by participants in their own words and complemented by private photographs and treasured concert momentos. (This book) brings back the drama and excitement of the old-time school Christmas concert to all who miss it, to all who want to reminisce about it, and to all who wish to experience it for the first time."

Toronto Coles 1973 Facsimile Edition. Hard Cover Fine Very Good 
289 pp + 32 pp publisher's list, 8 5/8" H. Burgundy cloth with black title block, gilt lettering/banding on spine, gilt lettering/banding on front board - one of the Coles Canadian Collection. B&w frontispiece, fold-out map. A facsimile of the edition published by Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, London, 1889. "In the early 1880's, an adventurous young Englishman set off for a look at the New World, and soon found himself swept up in the current of immense historical forces that were shaping the young Canadian nation. He joined the North-West Mounted Police, and during the next five years he witnessed the rise and fall of Louis Riel, the subjugation of the Indians, and the opening of the West, from the point of view of the common soldier. He was determined that the outside world should know the real truth about the Canadian West, and not the romanticized, idealized image that was promoted to lure immigrants to this harsh and often terrifying territory. His account of his gruelling trek from Regina to his post at Prince Albert, Saskatchwan, is unforgettable. He gives a day-by-day account of the tense months of the rebellion in the North-West. He observed Riel at close hand, as his prison guard, and his notes on his prisoner shed new light on a controversial figure. Later, he helped to subdue the Indians, and to quash the illicit whiskey trade, and he tells of the discovery of vast amounts of coal in the Souris district. The tale he tells is a far cry from the modern technicolor version of the Mounties and the old West, and it is a must for any reader who wants to know what Canada was really like one hundred years ago." Dust jacket has areas of light wrinkling at top edge.

William Heinemann/British Book Service (Canada), London/Toronto, (1953), Ist edition.

"...the story has as a background the hills and the Rocky Mountains of Alberta; in the foreground are the mining centre of Coaltown and, living in it, a young girl of nearly seventeen - not a fairytale heroine, but a delightful person, natural, impressionable and intensely alive. 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..."

Or was Caer destined to be lonely forever? Ted Nasmith's detailed illustrations, based on ancient Celtic signs and symbols, enrich Joanne Findon's haunting retelling of a medieval Irish tale."
