16 The Truce: The Day the War Stopped
Baker, Chris Amberley Publishing 2014 1445634902 / 9781445634906 First Edition Hardcover New New Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall 
New hardback. First impression. RRP. 18.99. The Christmas Truce is seen as a satisfying and hopeful event in a war that is often regarded as unnecessary, bitter, hopeless and futile. Many accounts give a warm, poignant view of the truce, to the extent that it has gained totemic significance in the minds of the general public. Inspired by the centenary, and in the light of documentary evidence unavailable when previous accounts have been published, Chris Baker examines the events leading up to the 1914 truce. pp. 182, maps. 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. 305926

Bayard, Louis John Murray 2011 1848542186 / 9781848542181 First Edition Hardcover New New Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall 
New first edition, first printing. Not previously owned. Both the book and dust jacket are in excellent, fine condition. RRP. 17.99. 338pp. A shared quest and a mysterious cabal, four centuries apart. When Henry Cavendish attends the funeral of an old friend, the last thing he expects is to be given a business proposition. A handsome sum to retrieve a document that was in his friend's possession when he died - a letter from Sir Walter Raleigh. Henry accepts the challenge, despite severe misgivings about his sinister new employer. Four centuries earlier, in Elizabethan England, another quest is playing out. Thomas Harriot, once a member of the mysterious School of Night, a group whose members included the toast of Elizabethan society, has shut himself off from the world. Working day and night, he devotes himself secretly to his experiments. As both searches deepen, the two men realise that there are forces at work against them. Harriot's work is threatened by discovery and Henry's search becomes a deadly one, when someone close to him dies in mysterious circumstances. The School of Night is the story of a quest that spans centuries, of alliances forged in unexpected circumstances and of men who will stop at nothing to get what they want.

In a three-story house with a shop down below, lived the world's finest hat maker, Madame Chapeau. Like the Lady herself, all her hats were refined. Brilliantly singular. One of a kind. So begins Andrea Beaty's new rhyming picture book about a hat maker adored by her friends and neighbours. On her birthday, Madame Chapeau wears the perfect bonnet made by her late husband.

But on the way to her birthday dinner, a crow snatches her hat and flies away with it, leaving Mme. Chapeau sans bonnet. As she chases the crow, everyone around her begins to follow her, offering their own hats for her to wear. None of them are quite right for Madame Chapeau, though, until one special little girl offers her a hat "knitted with love and [her] best birthday wish." What appears "rather odd" to Mme Chapeau at first is actually the perfect gift for her. A delightful story about love, community and friendship, with some fancy hats and a birthday thrown in for good measure. 306252

15 Scouting for Boys: A Handbook for Instruction in Good Citizenship
Baden-Powell, Robert Oxford University Press 2018 0198799993 / 9780198799993 First Thus Hard Cover New No jacket Book 8vo - over 7 
New hardback. Green cloth. RRP 16.99. First impression of this new edition. A scout must always be prepared at any moment to do his duty, and to face danger in order to help his fellow-men. - A startling amalgam of Zulu war-cry and imperial and urban myth, of borrowed tips on health and hygiene, and object lessons in woodcraft, Robert Baden-Powell's Scouting for Boys (1908) is the original blueprint and self-instructor of the Boy Scout Movement. One of the all-time bestsellers in the English-speaking world, this primer of yarns and pictures constitutes probably the most influential manual for youth ever published. Yet the book is at the same time a roughly composed hodge-podge of jingoist lore and tracker legend, padded with lengthy quotations from adventure fiction and Baden-Powell's own autobiography, and seamed through with the multiple anxieties of its time: fears of degeneration, concerns about masculinity and self-restraint, invasion paranoia. Elleke Boehmer's edition of Scouting for Boys reprints the original text and illustrations, and her fine introduction investigates a book that has been cited as an authority by militarists and pacifists, capitalists and environmentalists alike. 145 x 224 x 35 (mm) . pp. 382. BK0004
