5 Matthews, John, editor/compiler. Foreword by Philip Carr-Gomm. (P.W. Joyce, J.A. MacCulloch, Julius Pokorny, T. Rice Holmes, Lewis Spence, John Toland, Edward Davies, Godfrey Higgins, Algernon Herbert, W.A. Winwood Read, Iolo Morgannwg, et al. THE DRUID SOURCEBOOK: FROM EARLIEST TIMES TO THE PRESENT DAY. (SOURCEBOOK.)
London Brockhampton 1998 1860198422 / 9781860198427 Reprint Hard Cover Very Good Very Good+ 
384 pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w illustrations. "The Druids have long been misrepresented and misunderstood. The only true records that survive from when the Druids originally flourished are those of the classical writers, who were completely opposed to Druids and their practices. Julius Caesar wrote disparagingly about them and sought to destroy them. The historical reality is that Druidism and early Christianity lived side by side for a long period, and a considerable amount of Druid philosophy was absorbed into Christianity itself. Whether Druidism is regarded as a Celtic priesthood in origin and name, or a religion, it is clear that Druids and Druidism were important aspects of the life of the early European peoples, especially in Britain. In this comprehensive and brilliantly researched book, John Matthews presents a cross-section through the diverse layers of Druid history and custom. Using rare sources - often lost or forgotten texts and translations - he shows how various aspects of Druidism originated and how these contributed to practices we see today. A Druid himself, (he) has expert knowledge and avoids the popular misinterpretation of Druidism as 'wanting to live in the past'. Instead, this book reveals the truth about Druidism, its ideas and customs, and makes a vital contribution to current interest in the Druids." Light wrinkling at bottom of spine, very small bump at bottom corner of both boards, very minor eubbing on boards. Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds.

RAF GATE GUARDS., Simpson, Jim and Darling, Kev, compilers.
6 Simpson, Jim and Darling, Kev, compilers. RAF GATE GUARDS.
Airlife, Shrewsbury, 1992, first edition. 
203 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1853101664 B&w photographs. "There are few airbases that do not possess a gate guard - an old aircraft, usually positioned near the gate of the base and 'up a pole' in an attempt to portray the normal flying attitude of the aircraft. Enthusiasts in the United Kingdom are particularly lucky that the RAF has such a positive attitude towards the preservation and maintenance of the often historic aircraft in its care. Ranging from WWII f ighters and bombers - Spitfires, Hurricanes, Shackletons and Lancasters - to more recent sophisticated jet aircraft such as the English Electric Lighning, Jaguar and Phantom; these aircraft represent a living piece of RAF history." Arranged a l p h a b e tically by airbase for 1991, with a section on former RAF Gate Guards and Selected Individual Histories. Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light to moderate edge wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and fl ap f ol ds , li gh t rubbing. Very Good/Very Good-
