PRAGUE WINTER:  A PERSONAL STORY OF REMEMBRANCE AND WAR, 1937-1948., Albright, Madeleine.  With Bill Woodward.
1 Albright, Madeleine. With Bill Woodward. PRAGUE WINTER: A PERSONAL STORY OF REMEMBRANCE AND WAR, 1937-1948.
New York Harper 2012 0062030310 / 9780062030313 Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good+ 
467 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w illustrations. "(T)akes readers from the Bohemian capital's thousand-year-old castle to the bomb shelters of London, from the desolate prison ghetto of Terezin to the highest councils of European and American government. Albright reflects on her discovery of her family's Jewish heritage many decades after the war, on her Czech homeland's tangled history, and on the stark moral choices faced by her parents and their generation. Often relying on eyewitness descrip-tions, she tells the story of how millions of ordinary citizens were ripped from familiar surroundings and forced into new roles as exiled leaders and collaborators, victims and killers. These events of enormous complexity are nevertheless shaped by concepts familair to any growing child: fear, trust, adaptation, the search for identity, the pressure to conform, the quest for independence, and the difference between right and wrong. At once a deeply personal memoir and an incisive work of history, 'Prague Winter' serves as a guide to the future through the lessons of the past - as seen through the eyes of one of the international community's most respected and fascinating figures." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor edge wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of hinges and flap-folds.

2 Bagnold, Enid. "NATIONAL VELVET".
New York William Morrow Reprint Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good Laurian Jones. 
303 pp, 8vo (8 1/4" H). B&w drawings. "(Velvet Brown's) passion in life was horses. And so, when she won a notorious and unwanted piebald in a village lottery, (she) began to dream. And, since the breathless imagination of youth sees no obstacles as insuperable, Velvet's thoughts turned to the greatest race in the world - the Grand National. The Piebald (was) part carthorse, part Arab. Because he preferred sociable village life to lonely fields, he learned to jump fences. When Velvet took him on, he looked like a newly painted rocking horse. When he appeared at Aintree, the crowd looked at him and hooted. Enid Bagnold's clear, pungent style gives this joyous and captivating tale a rare flavor. It is rich with the comedy of life and character and poignant in its realization of the eager, indomitable trust of youth." Minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor edge wear/wrinkling, two tiny edge tears, two soft creases at bottom of front panel.

4 Barthorp, Michael. CRATER TO THE CREGGAN: A HISTORY OF THE ROYAL ANGLIAN REGIMENT 1964-1974.
Leo Cooper, London, 1976, first edition. 
160 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H), soft cover. ISBN 085052229 Color frontispiece, b&w photographs, maps, 'family tree'. "In the early 1960s a new concept for the organisation of the Infantry was devised - the voluntary formation of Large Regiments. This is the story of the first: the Royal Anglian Regiment, with four regular battalions, formed from the seven county regiments of East Anglia and the East Midlands. These regiments, each with long and highly individual histories and tradition s , m a d e a decision to unite, a step which required goodwill, tolerance, trust and determination to made the union succeed. In some quarters, the Large Regiment concept was a nail in the coffin of the treasured regimental system; to others, i t wa s a m ea ns of retaining the essential features of that system while withstanding the stresses of change in the Army as a whole. The Royal Anglians have had ten years in which to test their experiment, years of futher reductions in the Arm y, of t rai nin g a s a i rpo r table and mechanized infantry, keeping the peace in distant garrisons, as United Nations troops, and above all the years of bullet and bomb in Aden and Ulster. This book describes how the dangers and difficulties o f t hose ye ars have wel ded to geth er a new regiment of modern infantry, highly trained and professional yet still conscious of inherited traditions. Chiefly, it is a picture of the contemporary British infantryman, disciplined and brave in ac tion , pat ient and chee rful in a dve rsity , a new breed in many ways but with all the best qualities of his forefathers and, in a confused world, a figure of hope and reassurance." Very faint cigarette odor, small soft bump to top corner of p ages, light wear at t op of front hing e/sp ine, l ight rubbing, fore-edge of front cover is lightly faded, minor soiling to bottom of textblock, very light browning to edges of textblock, tiny speck on top of textblock, very faint crease and s light fading on spi ne.

5 Bata, Thomas J. With Sonja Sinclair. BATA: SHOEMAKER TO THE WORLD.
Toronto Stoddart 1990 0773724168 / 9780773724167 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
341 pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w photographs. "In 1932, when young Tom Bata watched his father's coffin being lowered into his grave, he silently promised to abide by the wishes expressed in his father's 'moral testament': that the Bata Shoe Company was to be treated not as a source of private wealth, but as a public trust, a means of improving the liviing standards within the community and providing customers with good value for their money. At the time, Tom had no idea of the challenges he would face in fulfilling that promise. Not only was he ill-equipped, at age eighteen, to step into the shoes of an acknowledged business genius, creator of the largest shoe manufacturing and retailing organization in the world. Worse than that, fate was about to deal him a series of painful blows. The subjugation of his homeland, Czechoslovakia, by the Nazis was followed by an acrimonious family rift, the expropriation by Communist regimes of all his holdings in Eastern and Central Europe and, in other parts of the world, economic and political upheavals that threatened the survival of the newly resuscitated Bata organization. Yet Bata actually thrived on the sudden change and adversity. From his new home base in Canada he built, this side of the Iron Curtain, a global empire that employs 70,000 people and plays an important part in the economies of many developing countries. (This) is the story of the man, his family and their business." Remainder mark (dot) on bottom of text block, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and at top of rear flap, very light rubbing.

6 Borawski, John. SECURITY FOR A NEW EUROPE: THE VIENNA NEGOTIATIONS ON CONFIDENCE- AND SECURITY-BUILDING MEASURES 1989-90, AND BEYOND.
London Brassey's (UK) 1992 1857530403 / 9781857530407 First English Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good 
235 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). "While the 'traditional' threat of East-West military confrontation appears much reduced, events in Yugoslavia have removed any complacency about the stability of the new Europe unfolding around us. New threats - territorial quarrels, nationalism, and the demise of the Soviet Union as a unitary state - require a radically new approach to European security. The creation of an effective security system will be highly dependent on the trust and co-operation between the former Warsaw Treaty Organisation countries and their new-found NATO allies. As their title suggests, the Vienna Negotiations on Confidence- and Security-Building Measures aimed to do exactly this, by fostering greater openness about military organisation and activity. John Borawski's history of the negotiations provides a detailed analysis of the issues involved, indicating the likely direction of future talks following the watershed March-July 1992 CSCE follow-up meeting in Helsinki, and highlighting their extreme relevance to the problems confronting European policy-makers today. As they continue to seek an alternative to the limited, hardware-based negotiations of the past, 'Security for a New Europe' grows in importance as a source of ideas for problems old and new."

"Little did Teldin Moore know there was life beyond Krynn's moons - until a crashed spelljamming ship demolished his farm and changed his life! With a dying alien's magical cloak and cryptic words, he quickly discovers that he's a popular fellow. He and his giff companion race to find Astinus of Palanthas and the gnomes of Mount Nevermind to learn why, before the mostrous neogi can find them!" 2. Into the Void - 311 pp, 1991, ISBN 1560761547. "Plunged into a sea of alien faces, Teldin Moore isn't sure whom to trust. His gnomish sidewheeler is attacked by space pirates, and he is saved by a hideous mind flayer who offers to help the human use his magical cloak - but for whose gain? Teldin learns the basics of spell-jamming, and he seeks an ancient arcane, one who might tell him more." 3. The Maelstrom's Eye - 313 pp, 1992, ISBN 1560763442. "From an elven admiral at the Rock of Bral, Teldin Moore learns more about his cloak's past and its potential powers - but he doesn't count on being caught up in the hurri-cane of the second Unhuman War. Vengeful humanoids rampage through the Known Spheres, and they're on Teldin's trail even as he hunts for the ultimate spacefaring ship of all: the mighty 'Spell-jammer'!" 4. The Radiant Dragon - 312 pp, 1992, ISBN 1560763469. "Teldin Moore is looking for the great ship 'Spelljammer'. A radiant dragon holds the key to commanding the great ship but needs Teldin's help to take control. Meanwhile, the elves seek his assistance in the second Unhuman War, where a group of elf-hating monsters trades with goblinoids for a secret weapon against the elven Imperial Fleet. But someone in Teldin's inner circle is pulling all parties toward battle." 5. The Broken Sphere - 314 pp, 1993, ISBN 1560765968. "Teldin Moore's magic amulet allows him to 'see' through the eyes of the great ship 'Spelljammer', across the wilds of space. Following clues from an ancient gnomish library and the vision he sees, he traces the mighty craft through the crystal spheres. He employs his magical cloak's powers and discovers his quarry's home, but Teldin's cloak - and the possibility it could give him control over the 'Spelljammer' - continues to draw enemies, often in the guise of friends. Will he survive long enough to face the final danger that awaits him at the point of the 'Spelljammer's' origin - the Broken Sphere?"

"On 27 February 1574 died Sir William Harpur - a Bedford boy who went to London, became Lord Mayor, and endowed his old school. On 4 August 1873 Qu een Victoria approved a revision of the scheme under which the Harpur Trust operates. This book traces in lively detail the educational battles of the past up to those of today. It shows how the Trust till 1897 supplied practically all Be d f o r d ' s e ducation. It describes how government intervention obliged the Trust to concentrate on four main schools, which have since become know all over the world. The subject matter goes beyond Bedford and Bedfordshire. The book oulines th e ba si s fo r t he Trust's work, the development of farmland in the village of Holborn to becoming part of the heart of London. This endowment has made the Trust one of the most important educational foundations in the country. Comparisons wi th ot her sc ho ols i nd ica te the rich complexity of England's educational system.
