French Country Cooking
David, Elizabeth
Dorling Kindersley UK 1987 
 Hardcover This copy almost fine - previous owner's plastic wrapper. 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 cafés...in 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 raditional 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/Excellent

Battlefields of the Second World War
Holmes, Richard
BBC Books UK 2001 
 Hardcover This study of war skillfully clarifies the complexities of four major World War II military campaigns: El Alamein, Monte Cassino (Italy), Operation Market Garden (of which Arnhem formed a crucial part), and the Battle of Britain (the RAF's bomber offensive against Germany).

Principles and Practice of Soil Science The Soil as a Natural Resource
White, RE
Blackwell Oxford 1997 3rd Edition
 Softcover There is a growing need for information about soils, their behaviour and their influence on land use. This book traces the fundamental contribution that soil science has made to many of the applied sciences associated with management of the environment; this is even more important today than when the first edition was published. Soil scientists are increasingly pressed to find ways of both producing food and fibre crops more efficiently, in terms of both yields per hectare and value of product relative to cost of input, while preserving the intrinsic value of the soil resource for posterity. This third edition covers all aspects of soil science, the soil habitat, processes in the soil environment and utilization of soils. It also tackles the contemporary problem of the fate of toxic chemicals used in agriculture and their effect on the environment.

Underneath a Harlem Moon: The Harlem to Paris Years of Adelaide Hall
Williams, Iain Cameron
Continuum UK 2002 
 Hardcover Williams takes the reader on a fascinating roller-coaster ride from Adelaide's birth in Brooklyn through her humble childhood in Harlem, from her triumphs on Broadway to the glamour of Paris's Moulin Rouge. Adelaide Hall is the missing link in Harlem's Renaissance, historically the richest period of American black culture. As its most important and influential female star, she dynamically pushed down the barriers that had previously prevented black entertainers from reaching mass recognition. Readers get a glimpse inside the most sophisticated and celebrated nightclubs in the world and follow Adelaide across two continents on a groundbreaking eighteen-month RKO tour. By the end of 1932, Adelaide had performed for millions and in the process had become one of America's wealthiest black women. Her exile to Paris in 1935 brought with it new challenges and rewards. By 1938, not content with being dubbed the Queen of Montmartre, she set her sights on conquering Britain. Underneath a Harlem Moon concludes with Adelaide's mysterious disappearance in November 1938, which has, until now, never been publicly explained. review>>>> Overall, a hugely enjoyable read made easy by Williams's approachable style of writing and keen interest towards the characters he portrays within the text. A must for all jazz and popular music buffs.  Excellent/Excellent

La France Gastronomique
Willan, Anne
Pavilion Books Limited UK 1991 
 Hardcover A collection of recipes from ten rural regions of France. This book offers an insight into French country cooking and eating, and shows how the French not only produce good food but also love to discuss it. The recipes featured range from the world famous to the little known. What is a cookbook? More than simply a collection of recipes, a cookbook can be a window to the larger world beyond the confines of the kitchen, as La Varenne Cooking School founder and award-winning cookbook author Anne Willan illustrates in this excellent book. review >>> It's one of those books that can be read back to front, or by random page-flipping, without much loss of charm. Old-fashioned farms, sleepy rivers, small shops, hill villages, wood-fired bakery ovens and lovingly tended gardens are the sort of things that stick in the mind, both from Willan's descriptions and Michael Boys' idyllic photographs. Famous restaurants, when they crop up, are mentioned with pleasure rather than awe, in no way eclipsing more modest experiences. . . .& (re) the choice of recipes. There are only about 100, modestly tucked away in 10 sections at the end of the individual chapters, but they convey a lot. The selection emphasizes obvious dishes and use of obvious regional ingredients rather than gee-whiz "discoveries" and "creations." 192 clean white pp in great shape for some culinary browsing at a bargain price. approx 1.5kg carded/bubbled for post. We have a few other of Willan's fine books.  Excellent/Very Good

Wizardology : The Book of the Secrets of Merlin
Steer, Dugald
Five Mile Press  1977 
 Hardcover Harry Potter fans, Merlin advocates & maybe even Catweazle fans will go nuts for this gorgeous magic extravaganza review >>>Good read for fans of Merlin. The history/legend of how Merlin was born is accurate (though in the book they refer to his dad as a fairy rather than a demon, as the true legend goes) and the book does a great job of explaining the fact that learning magic is difficult.I was really impressed with the overall interactiveness of the book and the story of Merlin.   Very Good/None issued

Memories of Gascony
Koffmann, Pierre & Tim Shaw
Headline  1991 
 Softcover Don't want to break the bank with he hardcover? Here in paperback is the Glenfiddich Food Book of the Year, Koffmann's wonderful "Memories of Gascony" Here's our writeup from our hardback copy >>review - Having been lucky or mad enough to work with the Master, I just had to have his books. What was my surprise when I got sucked into Mr Koffmann's childhood memories of food and cooking. It s not only a brilliant cookbook, the stories are sometimes funny , sometimes moving. A real work of art. Love it. Thank you Monsieur Koffmann. Guardian review (well worth a google - In 1990, Koffmann wrote Memories of Gascony, reminiscences and recipes from the Oratoire accompanied by dewy photographs of the soft countryside. In it you will find his grandmother's recipe for walnut leaf aperitif (take 50 walnut leaves, 40g of orange peel, a litre of armagnac, a kilo of sugar and five litres of red wine; macerate for eight days, stirring twice a day; sieve, bottle, and store in a cool place for three months). It is both a sign of the excellence of its recipes, and of Koffmann's popularity, that a first edition of this volume, assuming you are able to track such a thing down, will now set you back up to £275. << Well ours isn't that much but it's worth that in enjoyment!  Very Good/None issued
