167 Tel Aviv: From Dream to City
Schlor, Joachim Reaktion Books 1999 1861890338 / 9781861890337 Soft cover Fine Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall 
In excellent, fine condition. Clean, tight and unmarked; as new. Tel Aviv was established in 1909 as a modern garden suburb of Jaffa, and now forms the gateway to Israel, embracing an abundance of cultures, languages and life-styles. At the same time, it is the first modern Hebrew city, a laboratory for the Jewish state, and therefore the centre of Israel's new cultural identity. Based on interviews with many inhabitants, and on information gathered from books, travel literature, newspaper articles and memoirs, this is an account of the city from its origins to the present. Tel Aviv is presented as a centre of immigration that contains reminders of each immigrant's mother country; as a catalyst between the East and the West; and, not least, as a place of transformation for Jews who fled from the Nazi terror. 339pp. 306190

169 Frankenstein, Or The Modern Prometheus. The 1818 Text
Shelley, Mary ; edited with an introduction and notes by Nick Groom Oxford University Press 2018 0198814046 / 9780198814047 First Thus Hard Cover New No jacket Book 8vo - over 7 
New hardback. White cloth. RRP. 14.99. First impression of this new edition. By the dim and yellow light of the moon, as it forced its way through the window-shutters, I beheld the wretch-the miserable monster whom I had created. He held up the curtain of the bed; and his eyes, if eyes they may be called, were fixed on me. His jaws opened... Frankenstein is the most celebrated horror story ever written. It tells the dreadful tale of Victor Frankenstein, a visionary young student of natural philosophy, who discovers the secret of life. In the grip of his obsession he constructs a being from dead body parts, and animates this creature. The results, for Victor and for his family, are catastrophic. Written when Mary Shelley was just eighteen, Frankenstein was inspired by the ghost stories and vogue for Gothic literature that fascinated the Romantic writers of her time. She transformed these supernatural elements into an epic parable that warned against the threats to humanity posed by accelerating technological progress. Published for the 200th anniversary, this edition, based on the original 1818 text, explains in detail the turbulent intellectual context in which Shelley was writing, and also investigates how her novel has since become a byword for controversial practices in science and medicine, from manipulating ecosystems to vivisection and genetic modification. As an iconic study of power, creativity, and, ultimately, what it is to be human, Frankenstein continues to shape our thinking inprofound ways to this day. 223 x 142 x 30 (mm). pp. 226. BK0003

When Conrad fails to return from a science conference abroad, Eleanor's first thought is one of relief; he might finally have discovered her affair. Or perhaps he's simply given up on their marriage, tired of having the less successful career. As the days pass and his absence in the family fold grows stronger, Eleanor begins to makes sense of what has happened to their lives to get them to this point. Leaving his family in Manchester to scrabble for clues, unsure of their feelings towards him, Conrad loses himself in the cold foggy streets of Bologna. Ill, confused, and desperately trying to avoid becoming a whistle-blower by a blackmailer, he revisits the stages of his long marriage to El, from their early happiness to the grief and anger he now feels. As Conrad and Eleanor examine their marriage, they move closer to an understanding of what it is that matters most to each of them. 305859

New hardback. First impression. Excellent, fine condition. RRP. 12.99. This is the story of Lizzie Vogel, a 15 year old girl who finds herself working in an old people's home in Leicestershire in the 1970s. The place is in chaos and it's not really a suitable job for a schoolgirl: she'd only gone for the job because she wanted a new phase and it seemed too exhausting to commit to being a full-time girlfriend or a punk. Lizzie has some knowledge of old people (they're not suited to granary bread, and you mustn't compare them to toddlers) but she doesn't know there's a right way to get someone out of the bath, or what to do when someone dies. When a rival old people's home with better parking and daily chairobics threatens to take all their patients, Paradise Lodge's cast of staff and helpers, from the assertively shy Nurse who only communicates through little grunts to the son of the Chinese takeaway manager who's renowned for his erotic handholding techniques, have to come together to save the home before it's too late. From the bestselling author of Love, Nina comes a story of being very young, and very old, and the laughter, and the tears, in between. 274pp. 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. 305794
