Then there were the women: the blue-blooded Lady Killigrew of Falmouth, and Maria Cobham of Plymouth, who wore buckskin breeches and was as skilled with a dagger as she was with her brace of pistols."

206 Palsson, Hermann and Edwards, Paul, translated from the Icelandic and introduced by. ORKNEYINGA SAGA: THE HISTORY OF THE EARLS OF ORKNEY.
London Hogarth Press 1978 0701204311 / 9780701204310 Second Impression. Hard Cover Very Good- Very Good- 
223 pp, 8 3/4" H. B&w maps, photographs. "This is a new translation of the only Norse Saga concerned with what is now part of the British Isles. It tells the story of the Earldom established by the King of Norway in the Northern Scottish islands in the ninth century. After a brief introduction, set in the remote world of legend and myth, it describes the Norse conquest of the Isles and relates the subsequent history of the Earldom of Orkney. It is for a period of three and a half centuries not only the main authority for the history of Northern Scotland, but an important document of the greater period of Viking expansion. For the people of Orkney and Shetland 'Orkneyinga Saga' has a special significance. It might be called their secular scripture, inviting them to recognise themselves as the inheritors and custodians of a dual culture, both Norse and Scottish. In the Viking period, Orkeny and Scotland were a crossroads where Celtic, Scottish and Scandinavian cultures met. Many of the Earls were striking personalities. The first was the father of Hrolf, the conqueror of Normandy. Several, including Sigurd, who was killed in Ireland at the battle of Clontarf, travelled widely to plunder and do battle. Two were Saints: Magnus the Martyr, still revered in Orkeny, and Rognvald, who built the cathedral dedicated to St. Magnus and visited Jerusalem on pilgrimage. (This) is also a most attractive and highly personal work of literature, which often quotes Skaldic songs, the original material of all sagas." Previous owner's name in ink on free front endpaper, soft corner crease on contents page, one small and three tiny corner bumps, very light edge wear, minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light to moderate edge wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, very light edge wear, light fading to spine color, one very small edge tear archivally taped.

207 Palsson, Hermann and Edwards, Paul, translated, with introduction by. ORKNEYINGA SAGA: THE HISTORY OF THE EARLS OF ORKNEY.
London Penguin 1987 0140443835 / 9780140443837 Reprint Soft Cover Very Good 
251 pp + maps, small 8vo (7 3/4" H). B&w maps. "Written around A.D.1200 by an unnamed Icelandic author, the 'Orkneyinga Saga' is the only medieval chronicle to have Orkney as the central place of action, and from it we derive much of our knowledge of the Northern Isles and Caithness. The 'Saga' describes the conquest of the islands by the kings of Norway during the Viking expansion of the ninth century and goes on to narrate the subsequent history of the Earldom of Orkney. Dominated by the great figures of the times - Sigurd the Powerful, St Magnus the Martyr and Hrolf, the conqueror of Normandy - the 'Saga' is a powerful account of warfare and the struggle for supremacy. This modern translation captures the force of the 'Orkneyinga Saga', which retains a special significance for the people of Orkney, sharpening their awareness of their dual cultural heritage, both Norse and Scottish." Interior - light browning to pages, otherwise clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor edge wear/wrinkling, small closed tear at top of front hinge.

224 pp, 9 3/4" H. B&w drawings. "From the original Celtic site of the castle at Tintagel, passing through the sacred forest of Broceliande in Brittany and on to the monastery of Scelig Mhichil off the coast of Ireland, Nigel Pennick takes us on an exhilarating spiritual and historical tour of the Celtic holy places of Europe. He delves into the mystery and lore behind the power of sacred trees and stones; springs and wells as places of healing; holy mountains as centres of geomythic energies; sacred caves; holy islands; sanctified earthworks and cities; paths and trackways; places for demons and supernatural beings; the visible instances of the divine in hidden temples; and the holy places of the Celtic saints. Through these themes, supported by a wide-ranging gazetteer of sites, he reveals the continuing importance of the Celtic tradition to us today."

213 Prebble, John. CULLODEN.
London Secker & Warburg 1961 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Good- 
367 pp, 8vo (8 5/8" H). B&w reproductions, maps. "(T)he story of a battle and of what followed: the destruction of a way of life and the persecution of a people. There is little in this book about Bonnie Prince Charlie and other principals of the last Jacobite Rising of 1745. This is the story of ordinary men and women involved in the Rebellion, who were described on the gaol registers and regimental rosters of the time as 'Common Men'. The romantic figure of the Young Pretender, and his now hackneyed story, has stood between us and them for too long. 'Culloden' recalls them by name and action, presenting the battle as it was for them, describing their life as fugitives in the glens or as prisoners in the gaols or hulks, their transportation to the Virginias, or their deaths on the gallows of Kennington Common. The book begins with the rain at five o'clock on the morning of Wednesday, April 16th, 1746, when the Royal Army marched out of Nairn to fight the clans on Culloden Moor. It is not a partisan book, its feeling is for the 'Common Man' on both sides - John Grant charging with Clan Chattan and seeing the white gaiters of the British infantry suddenly as the east wind lifted the cannon smoke, and Private Alexander Taylor in a red coat waiting for Clan Chattan to reach him, likening them to 'a troop of hungry wolves'. (It) reminds us, too, that many of the men who harried the glens as ruthlessly as the Nazis in Occupied Europe were in fact Scots themselves. It recalls the fact that many men in Prince Charles's army had been forced to join him. It shows that a British foot-soldier's wish for a sup of brandy on a cold morning before battle is as much a reality as a Prince's pretensions to a throne. The detail of the story told in 'Culloden' has come from regimental Order Books and manuals, from contemporary newspapers and magazines, from the letters and memoirs of soldiers and officers, eyewitness accounts of atrocity and persecution, and the personal stories of the victims themselves, like young Ranald Macdonald, aged seven, skulking in the hills above his burning home. 'Culloden' is the story not of a Prince, but of a people." Light browning and minor soiling marks to edges of text block, light wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket is price clipped, has light to moderate edge wear, rubbing and soiling to rear panel, light rubbing on front panel, small scuff on front panel, a few tiny tears and chips.

214 Prebble, John. FIRE AND SWORD: THE DESTRUCTION OF THE CLANS. 3 PAPERBACK VOLUMES IN SLIPCASE: CULLODEN / GLENCOE / THE HIGHLAND CLEARANCES.
Harmondsworth Penguin 1972 Reprints Mass Market Paperbacks Good 
360 pp, 304 pp, 336 pp - 3 volumes in slipcase. B&w maps. Culloden - "For years the rose-ringed legend of Bonnie Prince Charlie and the black memory of Butcher Cumberland have blossomed side by side. Here, from contemporary memoirs, letters, newspapers, and regimental order books John Prebble reconstructs the Common Man's version of the moorland battle and the months of repression and brutality that followed it. Glencoe - " 'You are hereby ordered to fall upon the rebels, the MacDonalds of Glencoe, and to put all to the sword under seventy'. This was the treacherous and cold-blooded order ruthlessly carried out on 13 February 1692, when the Campbells slaughtered their hosts the MacDonalds at the Massacre of Glencoe. It was a bloody incident which had deep repercussions and was the beginning to the destruction of the Highlanders. The Highland Clearances - "This is the story of how the Highlanders were deserted and then betrayed by their own clan chiefs - and of the famine and pestilence which followed their eviction from the glens to make way for sheep. While the chiefs became rich from meat and wool, their people died of cholera and starvation, or were forced to emigrate to unknown lands." Interiors - Culloden has tiny crease at top corner of pages 340 to end of book; Glencoe has small soft crease at top corner of pages 195 to 215and pages 295 to end of book; Highland Clearances has tiny tear (archivally taped) and crease at fore-edge of two page leaves. Exteriors - Culloden is slightly cocked, two volumes have two spine creases, two spines have slight fading to color, light edge wear - mainly on spines, a few tiny corner creases, a few tiny scuffs, Glencoe has small area of light glue residue on rear cover. Slipcase has moderate edge wear.

S.P.C.K., London, 1955, first edition. 
262 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w plates. "When Sydney Smith was admitted to a Canonry at St Paul's in October, 1831 'the two most conspicuous features of the Cathedral were vast emptiness and encompassing dirt'. The eighty y ears which followed, until Gregory relinquished the deanery in 1911, were a period of immense changes in the life, operation, and embellishment of St Paul's. To every aspect of this reformation the author has brought a thorough knowledge o f C a t h e d r al records, fine judgement, and agility in exposition. Much of the work is necessarily concerned with the mechanics of operating a great Church. Here and throughout the book the treatment is not only lucid but entertaining....As w el l a s le ar ni ng t o understand the problems of Cathedral finance or the organization of the Choir School, we discover, for example, how the restive horses of Queen Victoria's carriage were pacified during the Diamond Jubilee Service of 189 7. Dr P res ti ge' s s tud ies of the remarkable men who guided and served the affairs of St Paul's in these years show real depth and insight."

396 pp, 10" H. B&w and colour photographs, reproductions, maps. "(R)e-creates the real experience of medieval warfare, examining how men of all ranks of society were recruited, how troops were fed, supplied and deployed, the development of new weapons, and the structures of military command. (The author) challenges many common assumptions about medieval warfare. He shows that medieval commanders were capable of far more sophisticated strategy than is usually assumed: spies were an important part of the machinery of war, and the destruction of crops and burning of villages were part of a deliberate plan to force a foe to negotiate, rather than an indication of lack of discipline. Sieges, often lengthy and expensive, were more prevalent than physical battles. And in actual engagement the mounted knight was never as dominant as is often supposed: even in the twelfth century, many battles were won by unmounted men. Written by a leading scholar of the period and rich with anecdote and illustrations, this book will appeal to anyone interested in the social history of war in the Middle Ages." Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, very light wear at corners and top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has some minor edge wrinkling, one small edge tear archivally taped.
