Macmillan, London, 1980, first edition. 
201 pp, + postscript, 8vo (8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0333262816 "The battle-cruiser 'Invincible', Rear-Admiral Hood's flagship at the battle of Jutland, and the pride of the Royal Navy, was hit and blew up at 6:33 p.m. on the evening of 31 May 1916 with the loss of 1026 officers and men. There were only six survivors. In his brilliant new novel, Ronald Bassett takes four fictional characters who served in her - a wealthy Australian, the son of a country parson, an ex-professio nal boxer from the East End of London and a boy from the slums of Leith - and traces their lives from before they joined up to their ultimate fate. (This) is a brilliant evocation of naval and civilian life immediately before and during the e a r l y y ears of the First World War. It reaches a terrifying climax with the battle-cruiser's action in the battle of Jutland that shattered so many illusions." Top edge of first 20 pages have been roughly trimmed - a few closed tears have b e en a rc hi va l ly taped, slight browning to text block edges, faint cigarette odor, minor edge wear. Dust jacket has been price clipped, has light browning at edges and on spine, two tiny dints on front hinge. Very Good-/Very Good

18 Jencks, Charles, essays by. (Robert Stern.) ROBERT AM STERN: SELECTED WORKS. ARCHITECTURAL MONOGRAPHS NO 17.
Academy Editions, (London, 1991). 
144 pp, 4to (12" H), soft cover with self-flaps. Profusely illustrated in color and b&w with photos, drawings, plans, elevations. "Robert Stern's work as an architect is indivisible from his abiding concern with history and historical style. He regards Post-Modernism not as a random recycling of past styles, but as a necessary liberation from what he calls the 'perennial present' of the Modern Movement. In the four essays reproduced in this Monograph he urges contemporary architects to widen their vocabulary, to learn from the past in order to 'reunite current production with the traditions that a previous generation tried so hard to subvert'. The 33 projects featured here reveal the range of influences which have in formed Robert Stern's projects and buildings: from the Lutyens and Kahn inspired Lang and Westchester houses of the early 70s to later 'Shingle Style' solution such as the Lawson and Marblehead residences. Also featured are a number of larger scale buildings such as the Mexx International Headquarters in the Netherlands and the Disney Casting Center in Florida which have consolidated Stern's reputation over the last five years." Interior - small area of light soiling on half- title page, bottom of inside front hinge cracked. Exterior - light edge wear, rubbing to glossy covers - no color loss, spine flat and uncreased. VG-
