William Morrow, New York, 1964, 2nd printing. 
274 pp, 8vo (8 7/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. 3 b&w maps/battle plans. "Ike, Winnie and Monty have all had their say. We've heard from Bradley, Alexander, de Gaulle and a battalion of other brass hats. But here is a war memoir from the gro und level. Lieutenant Ernest Goodbody recounts each horrifying step of his military career to 'Punch' writer Patrick Ryan....horrifying because if Adolf Hitler had only left Goodbody unimpeded, the outcome of history's greatest struggle m i g h t h a v e been far, far different. Luckily even Goodbody couldn't stop the Allies. From the moment you meet him taking over command of Twelve Platoon (when Private Clapper came to tell about 'his hoggins') to the last glorious days when Go od bo dy 's re fu ge e c hildren turn out to be full-blown German frauleins masquerading in toddler's clothes, your eyes will be opened to war the way it really was fought by heavily armed civilians...."

Alan Sutton, Stroud, 1992, updated edition. 
128 pp, small 4to (10 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0750900784 Colour and b&w photographs. "Highgrove, Nether Lypiatt and Gatcombe Park are set only a few miles apart on the south-western edge of the Cotwolds, and in recent times have firmly established Gloucestershire's links with royalty. Yet royal links with the county can be traced back to Saxon times. William I kept Christmas at Glouceter and held his Parliament there, the Forest of Dean was of course a renowned royal hunt ing ground, while in modern times Queen Mary stayed at Badminton between the two world wars and the Duke of Windsor frequented Tetbury during the 1920s and '30s. This book, first published in 1981 and now extensively updated, traces the his t o r y a n d ownership of the three present-day royal homes - Highgrove, home of The Prince and Princess of Wales, Nether Lypiatt, home of Prince and Princess Michael Kent, and Gatcombe Park, home of The Princess Royal. It includes architectural d et ai ls an d de scribes the changes that have been made to the properties over the years, as well as looking back on the Gloucestershire worthies, ghosts and distinguished visitors who haunted these relatively modest houses until comparatively rec ent ly. T h e t ex t i s complemented by old engravings, historical and architectural illustrations, and new specially commissioned colour photographs....This new edition also includes a foreword by Rosemary Verey, who also provides fresh info rmat ion on t he g ar dens of the se royal Gloucestershire homes." Minor rub on front board, tiny dint on bottom edge of front board. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling. Near Fine/Near Fine

301 pp, 9" H. Kate Greenaway "studied art at South Kensington and the Slade, where her fellow students were Lady Butler and Helen Allingham. To start with, she worked as an illustrator and drew Valentine and Christmas cards, as well as black and white pictures for various books. Her great breakthrough came in 1877 when she met Edmund Evans and showed him the collection of drawings and poems that she had assembled. These were published by Evans as 'Under the Window', which was a runaway success and was followed by the many childrens books for which she is best known. Among these are 'Mother Goose', 'The Language of Flowers', 'Marigold Garden', 'A Apple Pie' and 'The Pied Piper of Hamelin', to name but a few. This biography, written by her friends M.H. Spielman and G.S. Layard, was published in 1905, just four years after her death. It tells the story of her life and relates the romantic circumstances of her great friendship with John Ruskin. It is required reading for all followers of Kate Greenaway and is accompaneid by over 50 colour illutrations by the artist as well as many black and white and line illustrations."

TEN MINUTES TO BUFFALO: THE STORY OF GERMANY'S GREAT ESCAPER., Steinhilper, Ulrich and Osborne, Peter.

432 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1872836011 B&w maps, plans, photographs, reproductions. "Having fought throughout the Battle of Britain, Ulrich Steinhilper was shot down as he flew his Messerschmitt Bf 109-E on a bo mber escort duty. As the wing turned over London it was attacked by 74 Squadron, 'The Tigers', and Sergeant Bill Skinner in a Spitfire was to claim the 'kill'. So it was that in late October 1940 Ulrich was to begin a phase of his life which w o u l d stretch him, at times, to the limit of physical endurance and at another to the edge of insanity. He was to become a prisoner of war, but he was not a man to embrace something as alien as imprisonment lightly and so he was to dedicate h i ms el f to t he idea of escape. This is the remarkable story of the man who was to become one of the select few, popularly known as 'Die Ausbrecherkonige von Kanada' (the breakout kings from Canada). It is a singularly remarkable history of inn ov ati on, c our age and, at times sheer audacity. The detailed record of the life of one very unusual German prisoner of war. It is entirely written from documents which were laboriously hand-written in 1943 and which, through a remarkable seri es of e vent s, were ret urned to Ulrich Steinhilper in 1953. It is not, therefore, the reminiscences of events which occurred fifty years ago, coloured and tainted by the passage of time, but the accurate and historically correct diary of an exce pti onal young ma n."

But his bold plan was compromised - and at the Antietam River the Army o f Northern Virginia was fighting for its very life." "Each volume (of the Campaign series) begins with an assessment of each commander's campaign strategy, then recounts the progress of the fighting, blow-by-blow. More than 90 illustrations, inc lu ding maps, charts and colour plates accompany the text, and a series of three-dimensional battle maps mark the critical stages of the campaign. Each volume concludes with a brief guide to the battlefield today, and detailed notes for wargamers."

215 pp, 9 1/4" H. "(A) rich and fascinating insight into Quebec's sense of its own identity. An exuberantly cheeky history lesson by Yvon Deschamps, the popular entertainer and monologuist; a reasoned and impassioned essay on the attitudes encountered by French Canadians outside Quebec from the pen of the late Andre Laurendeau, one of the province's finest journalists; or a 'memoire' of early childhood experiences expressed with a cool sense of outrage by Claire Martin - all of these are among the many fine pieces of writing presented (here). They explore the major themes of Quebec life and thought from the past and present, as well as views on the shape of the future. The list of authors is, in itself, a spectacular tribute to the vitality of the province's literary tradition. Poets, story tellers, historians, journalists, entertainers, playwrights, song writers - each has a special focus and casts a special light on Quebec's life and heritage."

368 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H). B&w drawings, map. "Some twenty years ago, (Katherine Swift) and her husband leased a house in Shropshire with a garden that became her passion. Driven to uncover its history, she takes readers on a journey back through time, linking the stories of those who lived in the house and tended the same red soil with her family's own saga. Spanning hundreds of years, 'The Morville Hours' is also deeply personal - a journey through the seasons and one of self-exploration, of finding one's place in the world and putting down roots. (It) takes the form of medieval Books of Hours, recalling the monastic past of the house. Each chapter is named after one of the Hours of the Divine Office and brings to life an hour of the day or night - from the crunch of grass underfoot at midnight on a frosty New Year's Eve to a perfumed May Day morning when the whole world seems young; from the enervating heat of a midsummer noon to the bloom of blue-black damsons picked on a golden September afternoon. Together they describe the arc of the gardening year and the arc of life." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at top edge.
