KINGSTON UPON THAMES:  A PICTORIAL HISTORY., McCormack, Anne.
202 McCormack, Anne. KINGSTON UPON THAMES: A PICTORIAL HISTORY.
Phillimore, Chichester, 1989. 
Unpaginated, large 8vo (9 7/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 085033716X Pictorial endpapers. Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, reproductions. "Kingston upon Thames is a Royal Borough, one of only four in England and Wales. Seven Anglo-Saxon Kings were crowned in the town, which has been an important market and trading centre for more than a thousand years. The Royal Borough was enlarged in 1965 by the inclusion of the two former Boroughs of Malden and Coombe, and S u r b i t o n . At the beginning of the 19th century, the built-up area around the Market Place supported the traditional trades for which Kingston was famous - malting, brewing, tanning, and tallow-chandlery - while mansions with extensive pleas ur e gr ou nd s an d farms surrounded the town. The coming of the railways in 1838 and the subsequent rush for development land produced a dramatic change. Large estates were sold and built over to form the pattern of streets and houses familiar t oda y. S urb ito n and M alden and Coombe became separate authorities and churches, chapels and schools were built to serve their expanding communities. The construction of the Kingston By-Pass in 1927 encouraged further growth and the developme nt o f t he a rea into a cen tre of light industry meant that firms like the Sopwith Aviation Company grew rapidly alongside more traditional businesses. The splendid illustrations in this book, many of which come from the local history collecti on in Kin gston Her itage Ce ntre, cov er that important 150-year period in the history of all three former Boroughs, as the ancient town amid open country was transformed into the contemporary scene. The book provides a fascinating and informa tive r ecord of da ily l ife si nce Victor ian t imes, in wartime and in peace, and of the evolution of the present environment. It will be particularly welcomed by those who still remember many of the scenes and events depicted so vividly in the photogr aphs a nd by a ll who are in tere sted in the p ast of the Kingston area."

B T Batsford, London, 1983, first edition. 
288 pp, large 8vo (9 7/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0713427450 Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, maps, plans, drawings, diagrams. "Under the Roman Empire, London became a major city - valuable to Rome as port, administrative c apital and strategic base. But, despite spectacular discoveries such as that of the Temple of Mithras, the available evidence has been inconclusive on many of the basic questions that have puzzled generations of archaeologists and historians . W a s there a pre-Roman London - and if not, why not? How exactly did the city develop during the four centuries of Roman occupation? What happened between 410 and 600, during the traditional 'Dark Ages'? Over the last ten years, however, the r e sc ue e x cavations carried out in the City and in Southwark have produced a great deal more material evidence. By carefully correlating the archaeological discoveries, new and old, with the historical and numismatic evidence, it is possible to m a ke som e h is torical sense of the innumerable scraps of seemingly unconnected information. Recent excavations have also raised new questions: why were so many houses and workshops apparently abandoned in the later second century, and what is the m yst erio us d ark earth that sometimes overlies their remains and underlies late Saxon and early medieval features? These and many other fascinating questions are probed by (the author) in his magesterial study of Roman London."

A HISTORY OF DIDSBURY., Million, Ivor R.  Foreword by Lady Simon of Wythenshawe.

Didsbury Civic Society / E. J. Morten, Didsbury, Manchester, 1969, reprint. 
142 pp, 8vo (8 7/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w plates. "In this book the author presents the results of research he has made into the history of a more than usually interesting suburb of a great city (Manchester), based not so much on the work of earlier writers as on the inspection of original documents wherever they might have been. It was inevitable that a quest so detailed should have yielded a crop of original discoveries. How many people know that the artificial banks of the River Mersey date back to the thirteenth century; that armies of both Cavaliers and Roundheads mustered on the very land where Didsbury Library stands or that, in 1651, an army of invading Scots was routed on Didsbury Golf Course where many of them lie buried today? Mr. Million has taken nothing for granted and does not ask his readers to take anything on trust. His book is liberally provided with quotations from original sources, many of which have never previously been published. There ar e few districts in the country of which so comprehensive a history has been written." Gift inscription on verso of front free endpaper, minor browning to edges of textblock, very light edge wear, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine.

In addition to the A-Z gazetteer of place names, Dr Mills provides extensive background information about the history, patterns of settlement, topography, administration and language of the country and explains t he principles on which the gazetteer has been selected and arranged."

In these pages, we hear anecdotes about famous friends from Evelyn Waugh to John F. Kennedy; tales of struggle and success at Chatsworth, England's great stately home; and of course the tales of her beloved chickens, which the Duchess began rising as a child for pocket money.

218 Moore, Lucy. AMPHIBIOUS THING: THE LIFE OF LORD HERVEY.
London Viking 2000 067087986X / 9780670879861 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good+ 
376 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H). Colour plates. "Lord Hervey was one of the most controversial figures of the Georgian age. The consummate courtier - strikingly handsome, elegant and witty - he was both the favourite of the Queen and right-hand man to Walpole. Painted by Hogarth, satirized by Fielding and Pope, and confidant of Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, Hervey counted among his friends and enemies some of the most brilliant men and women of the age. Yet for all his hard-won fame, there was a scandalous private side to Hervey. He was certainly a rake (rumour had it that he shared a mistress with the Prince of Wales), but such behaviour was quite normal among the eighteenth-century aristocracy. Less usual, however, was his ten-year affair with another man. From the outset, Hervey was fascinated by Stephen Fox. His engaging, delightfully witty letters reveal the depth of their passion for one another, and the lengths to which they were driven in order to escape detection. Finally, theirs became an 'open secret', one of many factors that was to contribute to Hervey's downfall. In this entertaining and wonderfully observed biography, Lucy Moore brings to life an entire age, with its shimmering artifice and its poisonous deceit, its highly wrought melodrama and its grand passions."

364 pp, 8 3/4" H. B&w illustrations. "The brutal murder of the Reverend George Parker in the secluded village of Oddingley on Midsummer's Day in 1806 gripped everyone from the Home Secretary in London to newspapermen across the country. It was a strange and stubborn case. The investigation lasted more than two decades, involving multiple inquests, judges and coroners, each more determined than the last to solve Oddingley's most gruesome crime - or crimes, as it turned out. (This) is a fascinating glimpse into English rural life at the beginning of the nineteenth century, so often epitomised by the civilised drawing rooms of Jane Austen or the rural idylls of Constable. England was exhausted and nervous, dogged by Pitt's war taxes, mounting inflation and the lingering threat of a French invasion. Violence was rife, particularly in rural communities where outsiders were regarded with deep suspicion. With a cast of characters straight out of Hardy, 'Damn His Blood' is a nail-biting true story of brutality, greed and ruthlessness which brings an elusive society vividly back to life."
