French Country Cooking
David, Elizabeth
Dorling Kindersley UK 1987 
 Hardcover This copy almost fine save for slight sunning to spine. First published sixty years ago while food rationing was still in force, Elizabeth David used this book to introduce to the nation's bland palate, ingredients and recipes previously undiscovered in postwar Britain. Many people of that era had never experienced anything other than British cooking meat, two veg and a nice steamed pudding. ......------......She starts by setting the record straight: 'Those who care to look for it will find the justification of France's culinary reputation in the provinces, at the riverside inns, in unknown café sea port bistros...and nowadays in cafés routiers, the lorry-drivers' restaurants. In such places the most interesting food of France is to be found.' From having lived with a French family while studying over there, she was able to bring firsthand knowledge to this short yet concise guide to provincial French cooking.She starts with a chapter on the Batterie de Cuisine. But it's the collection of regional recipes that follow that made this book such a treat for 1950s Britain; divided into sections on soups, fish, eggs, luncheon, supper and family dishes, meat, poultry, game, vegetables, salads, sauces and sweets, she gives an entertaining and informative introduction to each. French Country Cooking reveals the immense diversity of the cuisine through recipes that range from a primitive peasant soup of the Basque country to the refined Lyonnaise dish of Poulet à la Crème. To those used to the traditional format of recipe writing the book will come as something of a surprise since Elizabeth David weaves the ingredients into the methods complete with details of the region, tradition and people. Elizabeth David's acclaimed writings are often cited as an inspiration by many of today's leading chefs, as well as home cooks, and are essential to any serious cookery book collection. Book in beaut condition with very attractive period art to illustrate as well as line art by John Minton, a book to savour with a nice chablis or maybe a Pernod & ice.  Excellent/Very Good

Footloose  2008 
 Card Cover Plants of Tropical North Queensland: The Compact Guide by Beasley is some 192pp & under 500g. reviewed by Kerry Rathie > This notebook-sized (A5) book of 192 pages is an interesting and quirky little publication covering 485 plants, mostly native, likely to be noticed in its area of coverage. This is centred on Cairns, but extends to include Cooktown and Ingham and their hinterland areas like hillagoe. Plants, each given a number, are arranged in groups like trees, vines and so on within habitats. These are mangroves, shore and swamp, coastal open forest, rainforest, inland open forest and stream margins. There is also an introductory section on harmful plants and closing sections on weeds and on ornamental shrubs and trees (exotics and natives from outside the area). The plants each have a unique numeric identifier, and many are listed under the multiple keys, based on things like colours of all major plant parts, leaf sizes and shapes and textures and arrangement, and stem and bark features. Photos are smallish but almost always clear. Height, leaf length, flower size, flowering period, fruiting time and fruit size are given for each plant. The author has searched the internet for information on medicinal, culinary, timber and other usages, world-wide distributions, and items of general interest. Gift inscription.  Excellent/None issued

A Practical Guide to Handling Dogs and Stock
Mills, AR (ed) & McIntyre WV & Herbert, SF
A. H. & A. W. Reed Australia 1971 
 Hardcover 125pp that appear as crisp as the day they were printed, less than 500g to post. This valuable reference was first issued in 1964 & popularly reprinted in 1966 & '71. Mills (ed) has a lifetime's experience on garms & stations in New Zealand as well as in depth experience in dog trialling. McIntyre achieved unrivalled fame in breeding two distinct strains, a heading & a huntaway. McIntyre's dogs (50 over 53 years) were winners, winners & winners. Herbert was Senior Judge for the NZ Sheepdog Trial Assoc & in a forty year period won many championships. I hesitate to pun that this book has impeccable breeding. It is a book whose primary focus is the working farm dog, not the show ring medallist. A down-to-Earth book for the farmer who handles sheep & cattle and wants the best of the stock dogs.. Subjects include training, handling, shedding, lambing, temperament etc. This fine statement sums it up > "Every statement, every word of advice has been tested on the anvil of experience . . . a classic textbook of farming practise at its best."
