1 Gabriel's Garden

16 Scribbles in The Margins: 50 Eternal Delights of Books
Gray, Daniel Bloomsbury London 2017 1408883945 / 9781408883945 First Edition Hardcover New New Book 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall 
New hardback with dust jacket. RRP 9.99. First impression. pp. xiii, 146. We lead increasingly time-poor lifestyles, bombarded 24/7 by petrifying news bulletins, internet trolls and endless noises. Where has the joy and relaxation gone from our daily lives? Scribbles in the Margins offers a glorious antidote to that relentless modern-day information churn. It is here to remind you that books and bookshops can still sing to your heart. Warm, heartfelt and witty, here are fifty short essays of prose poetry dedicated to the simple joy to be found in reading and the rituals around it. These are not wallowing nostalgia; they are things that remain pleasurable and right, that warm our hearts and connect us to books, to reading and to other readers: smells of books, old or new; losing an afternoon organising bookshelves; libraries; watching a child learn to read; reading in bed; impromptu bookmarks; visiting someone's home and inspecting the bookshelves; stains and other reminders of where and when you read a book. An attempt to fondly weigh up what makes a book so much more than paper and ink - and reading so much more than a hobby, a way of passing time or a learning process - these declarations of love demonstrate what books and reading mean to us as individuals, and the cherished part they play in our lives, from the vivid greens and purples of childhood books to the dusty comfort novels we turn to in times of adult flux. Scribbles in the Margins is a love-letter to books and bookshops, rejoicing in the many universal and sometimes odd little ways that reading and the rituals around reading make us happy. 306729

25 Collected Ghost Stories
James, M. R. ; edited with an introduction and notes by Darryl Jones Oxford University Press 2017 0198797362 / 9780198797364 Hard Cover New No jacket Book 8vo - over 7 
New hardback. Grey cloth. Second impression of this new edition. RRP 16.99. Considered by many to be the most terrifying writer in English, M. R. James was an eminent scholar who spent his entire adult life in the academic surroundings of Eton and Cambridge. His classic supernatural tales draw on the terrors of the everyday, in which documents and objects unleash terrible forces, often in closed rooms and night-time settings where imagination runs riot. Lonely country houses, remote inns, ancient churches or the manuscript collections of great libraries providesettings for unbearable menace, from creatures seeking retribution and harm. These stories have lost none of their power to unsettle and disturb. This edition presents all of James's published ghost stories. Darryl Jones's introduction and notes provide a fascinating insight into James's background and his mastery of the genre he made his own. 146 x 224 x 42 (mm). pp. xxxvi, 468. BK0013
