302 pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w maps, family trees, decorations, colour and b&w photographs. "(The authors) unearth the truth about King Arthur and the magical realm of Avalon. They reveal how, through their investigations, they traced original key documents which had lain neglected for centuries. By combining the ancient sources with an intimate knowledge of the British landscape, they have managed to cast new light on the Dark Ages. Every piece of the puzzle they have put together fits - perfectly. The authors prove that the stories about Arthur and Avalon are rooted firmly within historical events which took place within a precise geographical setting in Wales; they also expose how and to what ends Arthurian legend has been hijacked for political gain throughout the ages. By establishing the historical facts about Arthur, his knights and the exact location of Avalon, (they) rip away the tissue of fabrication and fairy-tale that has shrouded the true origins of the British people and of anyone claiming ancestry from these isles." Book is very slightly cocked. Dust jacket has minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, very minor edge wear, minor browning at inside edges, minor rubbing.

Life in two orphanages and a foster home was followed by hard years on the road after Tom ran away at the age of thirteen. But always he had his guitar, his songs, and a dream. Unflinchingly honest, often funny, sometimes heartbreaking, this is an intimate self-portrait by one of Canada's best-loved heroes." Minor wear on bottom edge, tiny bump at top/bottom of spine.

"(Shirley Ryce) tells of her upbringing as the spoiled daughter of a local bookie and card-game organizer, of her early marriage, and of the fateful meeting that turned a bored housewife and mother into a mob mistress. (She) moved in organized crime circles for almost two decades, and had many mob affairs. Although she knew little of the mobsters' 'business', she saw a great deal of the mob at play. Her break with the Papalias (Hamilton, Ontario crime family) and their cohorts, and her co-operation with the police, marked a dramatic change in ther life, and in 'Mob Mistress' she looks back at who and what she was with self-deprecating frankness. At the same time, she and Dubro both give an informed and clear-eyed view of her former 'playmates' - and of the law-enforcement officers who fight them daily." Small bump to bottom corner of both boards. Dust jacket has minor edge wear, very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, small corner crease on front flap, very light rubbing.

WISDEN CRICKETERS' ALMANACK 2005.  142nd EDITION., Engel, Matthew, editor.
16 Engel, Matthew, editor. WISDEN CRICKETERS' ALMANACK 2005. 142nd EDITION.
John Wisden, Alton, Hampshire, 2005. 
1744 pp, 6 1/2" H, hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0947766898 B&w and colour illustrations. "Wisden 2005 covers every match of the astonishing sequence that took (England) from Jamaica to Johannesburg - and a dozen test victories - in just ten mo nths. Mike Selvey traces the new dawn of English cricket back to the midnight hours of abject failure. Former team analyst Malcolm Ashton tells the story from inside the camp. And for the first time in 45 yeras, all Five Cricketers of th e Y e a r a r e English. There are full reports of all the events of 2004: the world records for Brian Lara, Murali and Shane Warne, and the rows over chucking, Zimbabwe and Sky TV. Wisden gets down to the grassroots as well. Alan Lee explains ho w t he t im e le ss ritual of village cricket is now splitting in two. But this is also a global book. Wisden explains how the mighty confusion of Indian TV bankrolls the game. One great Australian, Richie Benaud, pays homage to another, Ke ith M ill er. W isd en re por ts on South Africans' lingering love affair with Hansie Cronje and, from Sri Lanka, how cricket rose to the challenge of the Indian Ocean tsumami. Wisden recalls its own greatest editor, Sydney Pardon, the man who said (i n 19 10) that the En glan d se lectors had 'touched the confines of lunacy'. Wisden has never minced words. See this year's Notes by the Editor. Oh, and there's The Burning Bunny, the brothel that caters soley for professional crickete rs, a n in tervi ew w ith c ricke t's most famou s Slovak goalkeeper, the ground where it hasn't rained for 15 years....and Wisden's first-ever pin-up."
