In this book there is a strange mystery: the theft of papers from rooms whose doors and windows are locked. How are these robberies committed, and who is the thief? Somehow the mystery centres itself on Rilloby Fair, and so, of course, Enid Blyton brings a whole Fair to life, with its queer and interesting characters. Vosta and his chimpanzees, Young-Un and Billy Tell of the shooting-range, Old Ma, the roundabout boy, the loud-voiced Tonnerre and his elephants, and many others."

CHATEAUX OF THE LOIRE., Dunlop, Ian.  Preface by the Duc de Brissac.
6 Dunlop, Ian. Preface by the Duc de Brissac. CHATEAUX OF THE LOIRE.

215 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Map endpapers, color frontispiece, b&w plates, plans. "Travellers of every age have extolled the beauties of the chateaux of the Loire....By making use of their descriptions Mr. Dunlop shows us the chateaux as they were in their prime. He resurrects the vanished glories of Le Verger, Bury, Richelieu and Chanteloup, and assigns them their proper place in the mosaic. What was it that caused the King and his Courtiers to build s o l a v i s h ly in this region? By way of an answer, the reader is taken kite-hawking and stag hunting. What purpose did the immense size of the chateaux serve? The author takes us below stairs for a look at the great hierarchy of servants w h o ma i nt ai ne d a no ble household. These castles and palaces were the background to crucial historical events. Mr. Dunlop allows eye-witnesses to speak for themselves. We watch the Conspiracy of Amboise through the eyes of the English Ambass ad or ; w e ove rhe ar th e mur der of the duc de Guise with those who were in the next room. Thre Revolution is chronicled through the windows of Cheverny. Starting with Chinon in the days of Joan of Arc and ending with the restorations of the ni net een th c en tury , th is boo k give s the most comprehensive, and certainly the most original, picture of the Chateaux of the Loire. It is not an omnibus guide book - though it would be a very useful companion on a tour of the Loire Valley. It is not a tre ati se on styl e - but t he ar chitectural student may learn a lot from it. What it is is a book for the reader who wishes to take an intelligent interest in the buildings of one of the most beautiful and historic areas of France."

331 pp, square large 8vo (9 1/4" H x 9 1/4" D). B&w and colour illustrations. "Osgoode Hall is a national monument and one of Canada's architectural treasures. Of the many public buildings erected in pre-Confederation Canada, it best encapsulates the diverse stylistic forces that shaped public buildings of its era. The gated lawns, the grandly Venetian rotunda, the ornate courtroom, the portrait-lined walls, and the stained-glass windows evoke a venerable dignity to which few Canadian institutions can aspire. It has been the seat of the Law Society of Upper Canada since 1832 and of several of the Superior Courts of the province for almost as long. It has become a symbol of the legal tradition, not only in Ontario, but throughout Canada and beyond." Small gift notation on verso of free front endpaper. Dust jaclet has some very minor edge wrinkling.

A HISTORY OF THE ENGLISH HOUSE:  FROM PRIMITIVE TIMES TO THE VICTORIAN PERIOD., Lloyd, Nathaniel.
9 Lloyd, Nathaniel. A HISTORY OF THE ENGLISH HOUSE: FROM PRIMITIVE TIMES TO THE VICTORIAN PERIOD.
Omega, Ware, 1985, reprint. 
487 pp, 4to (11" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1850070776 Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, floor plans, drawings. "(This) reissue is prompted by the growth in general interest in historic buildings, for there is no work that prov ides such a complete record in text, pictures, plans and drawings of the whole development of English domestic architecture. Indeed, its value to scholars is literally unique, for Nathaniel Lloyd, who devoted a lifetime to its compilation, w a s a b l e to record many buildings which have either disappeared or been altered out of recognition. The book is divided into two parts. The first part consists of text which begins by tracing the development of the house from primitive tim e s to t h e No rm an period and, thereafter, devotes a chapter to each succeeding century. In the second part the same development is described in pictures, nearly nine hundred in number, which are grouped into sections under the headings of ext er io rs, en tr an ces , w ind ows, chimneys, interiors, wall treatment, ceilings, fireplaces, staircases, metalwork, etc. The arrangement of the illustrations allows the reader to study the chronological development of any one feature. When writ ing , t he a utho r c ons ider ed n ot o nly the professional architect (who will find it an invaluable source of reference, particularly in relation to conservation work) but also the general reader who, in the author's words, 'finds architecture a n at trac tive subje ct, but so so mplex as t o be difficult to grasp'. Those who want to know more about identifying features and construction methods of the various periods of English architecture will find this book an unrivalled guide to the r eward ing p astim e of l ooki ng i ntelli gently at ou r architectural heritage." Four pages with small crease at top corner, one page with small area of creasing and tiny tear at top corner. Dust jacket has minor rubbing, minor edge wrinkling. Very Good/V ery Go od+
