London Oxford University Press 1967 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good Lynton Lamb. 
119 pp, small 8vo (7 7/8" H). The first edition of this title in the Oxford Children's Library series. B&w illustrations by Lynton Lamb, dust jacket design by Glenys Ambrus. Originally published under the title: "L'Enfant et la Riviere". "This is the story of Pascalet and the river that at first filled him with fear and curiosity and later, when he knew it better, became his friend. It ran beyond the flat French fields that surrounded his home, and though he was forbidden to go to the river, once or twice every year the river came to him. It came when the flood waters ran swiftly over the low fields almost to Pascalet's door; but it came more urgently and mysteriously in the shape of Bargabot,the poacher, whose tempting talk of the joys that awaited those who ventured down to the water's edge filled Pascalet with a longing to escape from the monotony of his quiet home and seek for himself the magic beyond the fields. One fine spring day Pascalet's chance came to explore the river. He found there all the dangers his parents had warned him against, and many beautiful things beside, but chief among all he found Gatzo - a boy of his own age - and together they launched a boat and floated away into a world of enchantment: Pascalet dreaming and fearful, Gatzo sharp and practical and brave."

A BUNDLE OF BALLADS., Manning-Sanders, Ruth, compiler.  Illustrated by William Stobbs.
11 Manning-Sanders, Ruth, compiler. Illustrated by William Stobbs. A BUNDLE OF BALLADS.
Oxford University Press, London, 1959, first edition. 
245 pp, 8vo (8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Black, white & brown illustrations. "...'Come listen to me, you gallants so free - All you that love mirth for to hear...' So the minstrels of the Middle Ages would begin, drawing their listeners about them to hear the tale they have to tell. It might be a rousing adventure of Robin Hood and his bold outlaws, or a ballad of true love; it might be the story of a Demon Lover who lured his lady away by flattery, or True Thomas's adventure in fairyland; it might be the sea ballad of 'Sir Patrick Spens' or the stirring battle story of 'Chevy Chase'. Many splendid ballads, such as these are gathered together here in this richly varied collection. The language has been skilfully modernized to avoid difficulties in reading but without losing any of the original flavour and vitality. Happy or sad, mysterious or romantic, heroic or purely mischievous, with their dancing, singing rhythms the ballads hold an enchantment that still delights and lifts the imagination as it did when they were first sung." Lyrics only, no musical notation. Light to moderate edge rubbing to boards, light wrinkling at bottom of spine, small bump at top corner of boards, faint small watermark at bottom of front board, ink gift inscription/date on title page.

London / New York Mayflower / Dell / Daw / Berkley / Quartet / Avon Mass Market Paperbacks Good+ Cover art by Bob Habberfield, Ezra Tucker, Richard Clifton-Dey, Robert Gould, Stanislaw Fernandes, et al. 
A collection of 11 Michael Moorcock novels, including 1 complete trilogy (The Chronicles of Castle Brass) and parts of three other series (History of the Runestaff, volumes 1, 2 & 4 - Corum, volumes 1, 2 & 5 - The Dancers at the End of Time, volumes 2 & 3) - approx. 7" H. 1. Count Brass - 140 pp, Mayflower/Granada, London, 1977. "A romance set in the marshes of Kamarg, dominated by the ancient Castle Brass. Chill to the incredible adventures of Dorian Hawkmoon, the Duke of Koln!" 2. The Champion of Garathorm - 127 pp, Mayflower/Granada, London, 1980. "Dorian Hawkmoon the invincible, the Eternal Champion, the Duke of Koln, is dying from melancholia. His wife Yisselda, beautiful daughter of Count Brass, has perished in the Battle of Londra - or so the evidence suggests. But somewhere in the caverns of his soul Hawkmoon knows otherwise, and he is willing to journey through time and space and previous incarnations to grasp the key to her fate." 3. The Quest for Tanelorn - 155 pp, Dell, NY, 1981. "The City at the Edge of Time holds the secret of the evil force that has stolen Dorian Hawkmoon's future. The Hero of the Runestaff must ride a ghostly death ship to join his counerparts from other worlds. To challenge the Dark Powers and free Tanelorn from the grip of Chaos. His destiny and the fate of a million universes hang in the balance." 4. The Jewel in the Skull - 223 pp, Daw, NY, 1977. "Dorian Hawkmoon fell under the power of the Runestaff, a mysterious artifact more ancient than Time itself. His destiny, shaped by a vengeful oath sworn by the maddened Baron Meliadus of the Dark Empire, pitted him in battle against his own allies and forced him, by the Black Jewel embedded in his skull, to betray his very heritage." 5. The Mad God's Amulet - 142 pp, Mayflower, London, 1972. "Dorian Hawkmoon's betrothed Yisselda had been abducted by the Mad God, an evil sorcerer who had usurped the Red Amulet of the Runestaff. The amulet gave the power of the Runestaff itself to its possessor, and the Mad God was perverting that mighty power to his own unimaginably evil ends. Even as the destructive shadow of the Dark Empire spread across the world, Hawkmoon knew that only he could rescue Yisselda - and the Red Amulet - from the Mad God." 6. The Runestaff - 143 pp, Mayflower, London, 1969. " 'Those who swear by the Runestaff must then benefit or suffer from the consequences of the fixed pattern of destiny that they set in motion.' And Baron Meliadus of Kroiden had sworn such an oath, and sworn vengeance against all of Castle Brass, had sworn that Yisselda, Count Brass's daughter, would be his. On that day, many months earlier, he had fixed the pattern of fate; a pattern that had involved him in strange destructive schemes, that had involved Dorian Hawkmoon in wild and uncanny adventures in distant places, and that was now nearing its terrible resolution." 7. Knight of the Swords - 176 pp, Berkley, NY, 1986. "By creating Man, the universe had betrayed the old races. Spreading like a pestilence across the Earth, Man destroyed the Vadhagh and the Nhadragh, the ancient peoples. Only Vadhagh Prince Corum remained to raise his sword, to avenge the slaughter of his family and race, to battle the unjust fate of a blind and deaf universe." 8. The Queen of Swords - 160 pp, Berkley, NY, 1986. "The realm of Chaos was cast into disorder, for the Vadhagh Prince Corum - last of his ancient race - had slain the Knight of the Swords. Thus the dreaded Queen turned upon Corum, and Mankind began its bloody march across the Earth. All that was gracious and beautiful stood in peril. And so Corum set out upon his fateful odyssey." 9. The Oak and the Ram - 137 pp, Quartet, London, 1976. "The Archdruid Amergin is in captivity and under enchantment. Without him the Mabden people can never rise up and overthrow their oppressors. Thus Corum undertakes his second great quest, and though he must visit powerful and treacherous places, struggle with fearful enemies, he vows to return with Amergin safe, or not return at all." 10. The Hollow Lands - 180 pp, Mayflower, St. Albans, 1975. "Having narrowly escaped death in Victorian England, Jherek Carnelian is back in his own time. But without his love, Amelia Underwood. His obsession with her has not abated but Brannart Morphail refuses to lend him another time machine and he is stranded. Until one fateful day he meets Robot Nurse, guardian of ageless children, who agrees to send him back to 19th Century London. In the fashionable Cafe Royale two worlds and two cultures collide and Jherek's plight becomes more desperate - ." 11. The End of All Songs - 275 pp, Avon, NY, 1978. "Jherek Carnelian flagellates, duplicates, mates, and disintegrates in the mind-stunning madness of the phantasmagoric End of Time."
