5 On the Burning of Books
Baker, Kenneth Unicorn London 2016 1910787116 / 9781910787113 First Edition Hardcover New New Book 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall 
First impression. New hardback, in excellent fine condition. RRP. £25.00. pp. vi, 266. Ranging politically from Ancient China to the Nazis, from Animal Farm to Chairman Mao; religiously, from the Spanish destruction of the Aztec civilisation to Bloody Mary, from Salman Rushdie's The Satanic Verses to bibles in Islamist strongholds today; personally, from Samuel Pepys and Lord Byron to Dickens's letters, Hardy's poems, Burton's translations, and Philip Larkin's diaries.Alongside these telling examples are chapters on burning in war, accidental burning, royal burning - and lucky escapes. Baker reveals that while books, diaries and letters can be burnt, as a result of the invention of the printing press in the 16th century, very rarely can their content be expunged from the written record in history - the 'delete' button did not delete. Book burning today survives as a symbol, usually by desperate regimes, dictators and religious fanatics to impress the naive, warn the dissenter and rally the faithful. The dust jacket is supplied by us in a loose protective clear archival film sleeve. This does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way and it protects the jacket against wear. A HEAVY book - a postage surcharge will apply to delivery destinations outside the UK as this book costs more to send than our standard postage rate will cover. NO additional charges for sending within the UK. 305777

21 Enid Blyton's Noddy and his Friends, weekly magazine issues No. 1-36, 38-40 and the Christmas Special (1974) [40 issues in total]
Blyton, Enid [Darrell Waters Ltd.] Hudvale Ltd. London 1974 Soft cover Very Good Book 
40 issues of this weekly children's magazine from 1974. Includes issues nos 1-36; 38-40 and the bumper issue Christmas Special (48 pages, rather than the usual 16). Issue no. 1 has a small repaired tear to the front cover (an acid-free, archival tissue repair, near invisible); issue 1 also has a long repaired tear to the back cover, with old yellowed sellotape (previous owner repair). A number of issues have a name written on the cover (front or back). The first 11 magazines have a cut-out activity printed on the back cover, for children to make. The cut-out activity on issue no. 6 is a puzzle - this has been very neatly cut out and the pieces of the puzzle retained (they fit back into the cover perfectly and we have put them in a small acetate bag for safe keeping). Nos 29, 30 and 31 have a few activities filled-in (i.e. dot-to-dot done in pencil etc.). Activity pages in the other magazines are clean. Issue no. 34 has a short tear to the top edge of the back cover, repaired with an acid-free, archival, near transparent mending tissue. They are overall in remarkably good condition for a flimsy child's magazine from 1974. Magazines measure 28.3 x 21.8cm. HEAVY - packaged weight over 1KG, hence a postage surcharge will apply to delivery destinations outside the UK as this set costs more to send than our standard postage rate will cover. NO additional charges for sending within the UK. 308880
