Movement in Two Dimensions: A Study of the Animated and Projected Pictures Which Preceded the Invention of Cinematography by Olive Cook
London: Hutchinson, 1963
Hardback with Dust Jacket over Green boards with Gilt titling to Spine
Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour frontispiece;

From the cover: This is the age of Cinerama and Telstar. The man in the street can record his summer holiday with a movie camera almost as simple to use as a box Brownie. Moving pictures provide daily entertainment and information for millions. Yet the earliest silent films were first marvelled at by men and women alive today: the history of cinematography is still brief enough to be spanned by a lifetime. And before that?

This book is concerned with before that an enthralling story stretching back many hundreds of years. Leading up to the achievements of the modern screens are a host of ingenious means which man has devised to amaze and entertain his fellows with animated pictures.

Illusions created by print s and magicians, the camera obscura, the shadow shows of the Far East, magic lanterns, peepshows these are just a few of the many intriguing forms mans invention has taken to convey movement in two dimensions.

Here is no dull catalogue of fusty gimmicks and gadgets, but a story which moves from the pictures to the people who made and enjoyed them, illuminating a small but bright facet of social history. Careful research and the authors delight in her subject have combined to make this book as lively as its theme.

Olive Cook is married to the well-known photographer Edwin Smith, who has taken most of the pictures for this book. Some of them will arouse nostalgia. Others will open the readers eyes to an unfamiliar and charming world of entertainment.

Here you will find details of what water is available to visitors, the price of tickets, and where you can find accommodation in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Information gathered over decades of research has been expanded and brought up to date. Special attention has been given to sea fishing and to the sport available overseas. The index has been completely revised and now includes a thousand new entries.

Where to Fish is an absolute mine of information. There are lists of fishing clubs and the addresses of secretaries, records of big fish, some suggestions on the best times to go fishing and on how to reach the more distant places.

Tasked with rescuing a letter whose controversial contents could destroy Marlborough, Steel leads his men through the battle of Blenheim, risking death and destruction in the fight for another mans honour. And along the way he is constantly threatened from within by the mellifluous Colonel Jennings, intent on destroying Steel and all he stands for.

The first in a stunning new series featuring Jack Steel, Man of Honour is historical adventure perfect for all fans of Bernard Cornwells Sharpe.

The File on the Tsar by Anthony Summers & Tom Mangold
New York, Hagerstown, San Francisco & London: Harper & Row, 1976
Hardback with Dust Jacket over Black boards with Gilt titling to Spine
2nd impression. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Maps; Maps to the endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: The fate of Nicholas, Alexandra and their five children is one of the great unsolved mysteries of contemporary history. Were the tsar and his family really massacred at Ekaterinburg during the night of July 16th, 1918?

Anthony Summers and Tom Mangold have conducted a world-wide investigation lasting four years. They have talked to relatives of the Romanovs and to people who knew the imperial family; they have listened to historians, pathologists and many other specialists; and they have worked through a welter of source material, including the seven-volume dossier from which Sokolov, the official Investigator for Specially Important Cases, compiled his report. The result is a book packed with revelations: it discloses the callous roles played by King George V and Kaiser Wilhelm; it rekindles the controversy surrounding the woman who claims to be Anastasia the sole survivor; it demonstrates that vital evidence regarding the survival of the tsars family was suppressed by official investigators; and, above all, it presents new and compelling evidence that most of the Romanovs were not massacred at the Ipatiev House in Ekaterinburg and did survive after July 1918.

The File on the Tsar could be described as an international front-page news story in the form of a book. It is meticulous, it is closely argued and it is convincing.

The Fisher King by Anthony Powell
London: Heinemann, 1986
Hardback with Dust Jacket over Blue boards with Gilt titling to Spine
From the cover: The Fisher King, a mysterious figure in the Arthurian Legend, had been maimed in battle. His only pastime was fishing. Also emasculated by a war wound and finding relaxation in fishing is the celebrated photographer, Saul Henchman. Henchman, accompanied by Barberina Rookwood, a beautiful dancer much younger than himself, who has given up her career for him, are on a cruise round the British Isles. Their story is seen for the most part through the eyes of Valentine Beals, a writer of historical thrillers. Beals is haunted with the idea that Henchman is a contemporary version of the Fisher King, whose mystic destiny involves in love, ambition, desire, sacrifice, an incongruous cast of fellow-passengers.
