"More than twenty-five years after their first publication, (Larkins's) illustrated surveys of Navy and Marine Corps air craft remain two of the most valuable books about these airplanes ever written. With over 1,000 photographs combined, they remain the definitive record of the formative years for Navy and Marine Corps aviation. (His) emphasis throughout is o n s q u a dron use, experiemental and one-of-a-kind types, insignia, colors and marking schemes, technical innovations, and the service duty and tactical deployment of the various aircraft. During these years, the Navy and Marine Corps developed s ev e ra l di ff erent programs for colors and markings, and these are covered in exhaustive detail. Larkins was fully aware as he was assembling these books that, because of the Navy's practice of continually renumbering and reshuffling its squadro ns, h e w as pr ese rving valuable historical information that would soon become impossible to reconsruct. The books are arranged chronologically, and feature an aircraft assignment table for each year indicating which aircraft and which squadron s we re assi gne d to spe cific locations."

THE MINT:  A DAY-BOOK OF THE R.A.F. DEPOT BETWEEN AUGUST AND DECEMBER 1922 WITH LATER NOTES., Lawrence, T.E.  Writing as A/c John Hulme Ross.  Introduction by A.W. Lawrence.
163 Lawrence, T.E. Writing as A/c John Hulme Ross. Introduction by A.W. Lawrence. THE MINT: A DAY-BOOK OF THE R.A.F. DEPOT BETWEEN AUGUST AND DECEMBER 1922 WITH LATER NOTES.
Jonathan Cape, London, 1955. 
206 pp, large 8vo (9 7/8" H), hard cover (dark green cloth with blind embossed eagle on front cover, gold lettering on spine, dark green stained top edge) in dust jacket. "When in 1922 T.E. Lawrence enlisted in the ranks of the R.A.F. under the nam e of John Hulme Ross, he was in a strange physical and mental state as the result of his war experiences. Upon the discovery of his identity he was discharged, but was allowed to re-enlist two and a half years later, this time using the nam e S h a w , under which he had meanwhile served in the Tank Corps. From his notes, many times re-written and revised, he constructed 'The Mint' - 'an iron, retangular, abhorrent book', he called it, 'one which no man would willingly read'. It do es no t co rr es p ond to that description. In the main it is a highly subjective account of Lawrence's life in the R.A.F. Though resentfully critical of the treatment to which he and other recruits were subjected, it is not self-pitying. It is oft e n r ob ust ly ent er taining, and the character sketches are brilliant examples of Lawrence's literary skills. He had an acute ear for conversation: in fact, some of the dialogue so faithfully records habitual barrack-room words that it has b een de emed in advi sab le t o r eproduce them in the ordinary edition of the book." Blanks in the text replace the 'offensive' words. Light edge wear, slight fading at bottom of boards. Dust jacket has light to moderate edge wrinkling - mainly at t op of sp ine area, a f ew ti ny c losed tears, light browing at edges and on spine, very light soiling, small color stain on inside of rear panel.

"Camillo Ricchiardi's love for war took him to South Africa to fight for the Boers, where he originated the most successful foreign volunteer corps of the Anglo-Boer War. A strict disciplinarian, he was to become the only foreign of f i c e r w h o managed to stay in control of his corps throughout the war; would remain a close aide to General Botha from their first meeting at the Tugela Front to their partings at Komatipoort; be acclaimed by the Italian colony on the Rand and P re to ri a a s th e saviour, during the dark days that followed the 'Begbie explosion', culminating in a fiery mob-march down the dusty streets of the rip-roaring mining town of Johannesburg. The Italian Scouts' renown and occasional notoriety c ata pul ted th em o nt o t he front pages of most newspapers of the time, attracting many blue-blooded noblemen who eagerly sought the adventurous forays for which Ricchiardi was to become famous.

227 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H). B&w photographs, maps. "(Macksey's) detailed research, in England and in America, into the development of Amphibious Raiding Forces, presents a fascinating and unrevealed insight into the extraordinarily haphazard way in which this form of irregular warfare evolved on both sides of the Atlantic. In the background stand the politicians, who show little consistency of purpose or harmony of intent; nearer the foreground senior officers reveal inter-Service rivalry and no little degree of personal animosity, as much in London as in Washington. Between them, and the brave men to whom this book is a tribute, and whose exploits are retold in their after-action reports, stood innumerable problems which the author examines in detail: inadequate supplies, lack of information about weather, beaches and tides and, most vitally, about the opposition likely to be encountered, which caused many planned raids to be stillborn and many others to end in disaster." Large wrinkle/crease at top corner of front board - board is still sound, very light wrinkling at top/ bottom of spine, remainder dot on bottom of textblock/rear board, minor rubbing and soiling. Dust jacket has Stoddart as publisher's name, has light edge wrinkling, minor edge wear, light rubbing, tiny dint on rear hinge, soft crease at bottom of front hinge.

317 pp, 8 7/8" H. B&w photographs, maps. "It was the decisive battle of World War I. German commander Erich Ludendorff called it 'the black day of the German army'. Many authors have stated that it was the beginning of the end of the great conflict. And yet, until now, no book has been published on the climactic battle at Amiens. Amiens was one of the first 'modern' battles, and certainly the first attempted by the Allies. Employing the troops of five nations (including Canada) and utilizing secrecy, deception, and combined operations, the Allies won the first of a string of victories culminating in the Armistice one hundred days later. (This) is the first book to study the historic battle in minute detail. Using eyewitness accounts from dozens of survivors, plus many accounts, both published and unpublished, by the participants, the authors take us into the trenches, the tanks and the cockpits." Interior - small bump to bottom corner of approx. first 100 pages, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - small bump to bottom corner of front page, book is slightly cocked, three light creases down spine, minor rubbing.
