2 Bagnold, Enid. "NATIONAL VELVET".
New York William Morrow Reprint Very Good+ Very Good Laurian Jones. 
303 pp, 8vo (8 1/4" H). B&w drawings. "(Velvet Brown's) passion in life was horses. And so, when she won a notorious and unwanted piebald in a village lottery, (she) began to dream. And, since the breathless imagination of youth sees no obstacles as insuperable, Velvet's thoughts turned to the greatest race in the world - the Grand National. The Piebald (was) part carthorse, part Arab. Because he preferred sociable village life to lonely fields, he learned to jump fences. When Velvet took him on, he looked like a newly painted rocking horse. When he appeared at Aintree, the crowd looked at him and hooted. Enid Bagnold's clear, pungent style gives this joyous and captivating tale a rare flavor. It is rich with the comedy of life and character and poignant in its realization of the eager, indomitable trust of youth." Minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor edge wear/wrinkling, two tiny edge tears, two soft creases at bottom of front panel.

"These stories of five orphaned children living with relatives in a large old country house, can be read at two levels.

In how many book is one so readily welcomed to share the pleasures, surprises and dreams? Yet t h e a d u l t can read the very same pages and find something else again....What both child and adult can discover in almost every story is something rare, even in poetry: a quality of ecstasy - that rainbow of the imagination which never comes by s ea r ch in g; t he sudden pleasurable surprise; an intensity of happiness after woes'...."

HANCOCK., Hancock, Freddie and Nathan, David.
5 Hancock, Freddie and Nathan, David. HANCOCK.
Kimber, London, 1969. 
191 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photographs. "(Tony Hancock) led a life fragmented by laughter and despair as he ceaselessly sought an unattainable truth in comedy until it ended in a dreary room in Australia with one final drink, one last handful of pills. But before that happened he created more laughter for more people than any other man of his generation. The search for the truth about this extraordinarily complex clown involves drawing on the memories and perceptions of writers like Alan Simpson and Ray Galton, who, in a sense, hewed the Half Hour Hancock out of the whole man, J.B. Priestley who put him, thinly disguised, into a novel, Phillip Oakes, who wrote him a screenplay, and Denis Norden who w rote material he convulsed audiences with for years. There are, too, the writer/performers like John Osborne, Spike Milligan and Eric Sykes, the comedians who knew him or worked with him like Harry Secombe, Joan Turner, Kenneth Williams and Grah a m Stark; showman Bernard Delfont; actress Sylvia Syms, his radio and television directors Dennis Main Wilson and Duncan Wood and scores of others of lesser fame but crucial importance in Hancock's life." Slight fading at top edge of spine, light w ri n kling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor edge wear/wrinkling, a few very small closed tears, minor rubbing, slight fading to spine color.

208 pp, 4to (11 1/4" H). Profusely illustrated in colour and b&w. "Commedia dell'arte is the first modern theater - inspiration to Shakespeare, Moliere, Goldoni, Mozart, and Balanchine and forerunner of the modern stage comedy. Since its invention as a popular entertainment in Renaissance Italy, commedia, with its stock characters, its absurd and witty plots, and its utterly charming personalities, has captivated audiences high and low, from the street fairs where Punch and Judy reigned to the exquisitely refined court of the Sun King. This book traces the history of commedia from its beginnings through many transformations to its rediscovery in the experimental theater of today. The depictions of commedia in the visual arts has a rich history. From Tiepolo and Watteau to Beardsley, Picasso, Hockney, and other modern masters, painters have found great resonance and meaning in the clowns and lovers of commedia. Here the visual and dramatic arts meet, giving birth to styles of art and performance at once clever, hilarious, poignant, tragic, and eternal. Lynne Lawner traces all these threads, unearthing rare texts of commedia plays, discovering myriad version of the ever-fascinating Harlequin, Pierrot, Columbine, and Pulcinella, relating the gossip of courts and theaters, and revealing the ways in which these figures and their classic stories - the sly servant, the foolish soldier, the clever maid, the quack doctor - have arisen again and again in art." Light waviness to edges of text block. Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds.

Faber and Faber, London, 1943, 2nd impression. 
280 pp, 8vo (8 13/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w plates. "Early in the eighteenth century Russia, like Japan, in the nineteenth, suddenly decided to adopt Western ideas and to extract herself from the slough of darkness and mediaevalism in which for many centuries she had been plunged. This wrench, carried out with that magnitude and ruthless, exaggerated completeness which has characterized all Russian revolutions, was inaugurated by the titanic Peter the Great - who buil t a n e w c a pital, St. Petersburg (now Leningrad) for the purpose - and brought to fulfillment by his successors, that series of flamboyant and high-spirited Empresses. Among them Peter's daughter, Elizabeth Petrovna, was the most frivolous, c er t ai n ly t he be st -looking and certainly the least known today. Mr. Marsden's fascinating book brings the St. Petersburg of Elizabeth's time vividly before us. It was mainly from France and Italy that she and the other Russian autocrats of th e eig ht een th cen t ury dr ew the fashionable painters, architects, actors, musicians and others who designed the glittering 'mise en scene' against which the changing tableaux of this budding Versailles were posed. But in spite of the stupe ndou s roco co pala ces , th e feve rish display and extravagance, the often highly artistic gaiety (the beginnings and gradual development of the Russian ballet are among the subjects of the book), there was always an element of comedy in the hast y ama lg amati on of Fr ench eleg an ce an d bas ic Muscovite rudeness. This history of sixty years of Russian court life contains many amusing tales and scandalous anecdotes as well as a sober and detailed account of the creation - from literally nothi ng but ba rre n wast es - of a c api tal an d cour t whose grandeur by the time of Catherine the Great had become second to none."

The first part traces the critical and dramatic history of the play from its firs t appearance in 1604, and shows by detailed examination how certain of the 'problems' arose, or were invented by those unfamiliar with the conventions and expectations of Shakespeare's own time. The second part of the study considers the p l a y a g a i n st its contemporary background, linking the new ruler, James I, with a cult character of the period, the Disguised Duke who rules wisely but by stealth (James's self-image). Through this character Shakespeare unfolds the play's oft en p ro f ou nd a nd m oving ideas of human nature, justice and mercy, and Dr Miles gives particular attention to the structural difficulties which resulted from Shakespeare's attempt to graft this type of material onto what is basically a comedy pl ot. ...

London Andre Deutsch 1986 0233979603 / 9780233979601 First Edition Very Good+ Very Good 
150 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). B&w illustrations. "Although the Duke of Wellington's Peninsular War and Waterloo campaigns (1808-15) have been well documented by the great military historians, biographers and diarists of the period, many general readers are unaware that it was the custom of each regiment to be accompanied by a number of wives when it left England to go to war. Now Brigadier Page has unearthed a wealth of fascinating detail about these dedicated women, who made a contribution to morale, and hence to victory, that has never before been fully acknowledged. In an elegant and lively style, he describes the selection process whereby wives drew 'To-Go' of 'Not-to-Go' tickets out of a hat, their life on the troopships and their semi-official role as cooks and washerwomen to the invading army. He also recounts the experiences of the large entourage of Spanish, Portuguese and French women who shared the suffering and dangers endured by their English admirers until the fighting was over, and were very often abandoned when the troops returned home. Many of the women were faithful, courageous and hardworking, others flighty and lacking in discipline, but they all coped with incredible harship in order to keep their families together and to bring some light and comfort into the brutal lives of the fighting soldiers. (This book weaves) authentic historical detail in accounts of individual heroism, tragedy and comedy, all of which are tremendously engaging and very well told. Culled from diaries and memoirs of the men who fought in Wellington's campaigns, and enhanced by contemporary illustrations, these stories make a genuine contribution to scholarship and provide a lasting tribute to the women who followed the drum." Dust jacket has been price clipped, minor wrinkle at top of spine, minor rubbing, wrinkle in laminate on rear panel.

ISBN 189633203X "Gemma Johnstone's intimate charms have earned her just about every material comfort a woman about town could wish for. But when her latest admirer expires in full flight of physical affection, she must suddenly face the realities of being middle-aged, single, and without further material prospects. Temporary solace appars in the form of Helen Chisholm, a bed-ridden older woman who is in need of care and companionship while her redoubtable daughter goes away on a two-week Caribbean cruise. The prospect of tending an old lady tucked away in the tower of a sp r a w l i n g V ictorian mansion is hardly a tantalising one for a woman of Gemma's worldly charms. But as Gemma and Helen get to know each other, they form an unlikely bond and discover to their mutual surprise that their lives will never again b e th e sa me . A n yo ne familiar with the works of British writer E.F. Benson will immediately find themselves on familiar literary ground, probing the oft-fragile veneer of morality that separates respectability from the scandalous. Only here, t he se tt ing is a co nt emp orary one - Westmount, the genteel hillside environs of English-speaking Montreal's upper middle class. 'The Mice Will Play' is a deft comedy of contemporary manners (and the lack thereof). Written in Edward O. Phil lip s' f ast -pac ed, urb ane sty le, it paints an often hilarious picture of what happens when we surrender ourselves to the unpredictable twists of fate and human nature."
