Phoenix  1994 
 Paperback 130pp & less than 500g to post. 'Because it was very hot in my house one day and I could not concentrate on my work, I decided to write a summer story involving mangoes and a river. By the time I had finished writing 'The Crocodile and the Monkey' (in a cool room lent to me by a friend), another story and other animals had begun stirring in my mind. And so it went on until all ten of these beastly tales were born - or re-born.Of the ten tales told here, the first two come from India, the next two from China, the next two from Greece, and the next two from the Ukraine. The final two came directly from the Land of Gup. I hope you enjoy them and have a beastly time.' Vikram Seth. reviewer says >>> Revisiting folk tales in rhymed verse is a splendid thing to do! And some of the things on the reborn tales are issues that are current even today. Hard to believe these were written more than two decades ago! Book has a gift   Very Good/None issued

Poems on Various Subjects (with a Sketch of His life)
Orr, James
Wm. Mullan and Son Belfast 1935 
 Hardcover James Orr of Ballycarry "James Orr, the humble and gifted Ballycarry weaver, has long been classed with the Irish immortals." James Orr was born in 1770 at the little village of Ballycarry, between Larne and Carrickfergus, and in early life followed the trade of a journeyman weaver. He became well known in his own neighbourhood as "the Poet of Ballycarry." Orr believed in the cause which he advocated; his poetry was not mere verse-making, but the genuine outburst of his heart; and he soon became an affiliated member of the political union. In 1798 he took an active part in the battle of Antrim, and as a consequence was obliged to go into hiding. He appeared before the authorities and surrendered himself. He was sent to prison but in the end set free on condition of transporting himself to America, he did not remain many years; matters had rapidly improved at home, and he returned to his native village and his original loom. Green boards, spine sunned & spotty, 317 vg sewn-in pp Book appears to be the first of the 1935 re-issues, the titling is not gilt but simple black print.  Very Good/No Jacket

Miscellany Two
Thomas, Dylan
ISBN: 0460020498
Dent London 1971 
 Mass Market Paperback 117 pages. 130 grams. This book is in good unmarked condition with a little wear to cover. Book's full title: Miscellany Two including A Visit to Grandpa's and Other Stories and Poems. 'Following the great success of Miscellany One the publishers have been encouraged to issue a further volume displaying Dylan Thomas's extraordinary versatility in poetry and prose. This second selection contains among its five representative short stories Dylan Thomas's funniest piece, 'A Visit to Grandpa's', one of the 'inimitables' which Emlyn Williams included in his Dylan Thomas recitals; breathing the very essence of comedy in every word it never failed to induce gales of laughter among his audiences. Two of Thomas's most memeorable broadcasts are included. When the Collected Poems were first published The Times Literary Supplement said that 'a surprising number of his best poems are not obscure at all, and may be enjoyed by anyone who has the humility to approach a new poet in the expectation of finding something different from that which other poets have given them'. Among the contents of the present volume are some of Dylan Thomas's greatest poems - the Sonnet sequence, masterpieces as 'Fern Hill' and 'Over Sir John's Hill' with a number of others, full of the stuff of great poetry. These, after some fifteen impressions of the Collected Poems have been issued, testify to the immense popularity which Dylan Thomas has gained and maintained with the poetry-reading public.  Good
