Addison, Paul— Churchill : The Unexpected Hero— Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2005— 5½” x 8¾”. [xi] + 308pp. Black cloth gilt in d/j, As New. From the dust-jacket: "During the Second World War, Winston Churchill won two resounding victories. The first was a victory over Nazi Germany, the second a victory over the legion of sceptics who had derided his judgement, denied his claims to greatness, and excluded him from high office on the grounds that he was sure to be a danger to King and Country. Churchill was the only British politician of the twentieth century to become an enduring national hero. The curious thing is that it happened at the age of 65, at a time when he was considered to be a spent force, with a track-record of disastrous decisions. All but the most hostile of his adversaries conceded that he possessed great abilities, remarkable eloquence, and a streak of genius. But it was almost universally agreed that he was a shameless egotist, an opportunist without principles or convictions, an unreliable colleague, an erratic policy-maker who lacked judgement, and a reckless amateur strategist with a dangerous passion for war and bloodshed. At one time or another in his career, he had offended every party and faction in the land, yet despite this he became the embodiment of national unity, an uncrowned king who threatened to eclipse the monarchy. In this incisive new biography, Paul Addison tells the story of Churchill's life in parallel with the history of his reputation. He seeks to explain why Churchill was transformed into a national hero, and why his heroic status has endured ever since in spite of the attempts of iconoclasts to debunk him. He argues that we are now in a position to reach beyond the mythology - both positive and negative - to see the real Winston Churchill, a warrior-statesman whose qualities were remarkably consistent through all the vicissitudes of his career."— Stock No. 6170— £18.00

Aldington, Richard— Lawrence of Arabia : A Biographical Enquiry— London: Collins, 1955— 5½" x 8½". 448pp, portrait frontis, b&w plates. Black cloth gilt, no d/j, covers marked and rubbed, otherwise Very Good. In March, 1919, an American newspaper man named Lowell Thomas began a series of lectures at the Century Theater in New York City. His subject was the then unknown Englishman, T.E. Lawrence, who, according to Thomas, had performed incredible feats of courage in aiding the Arab revolt against the Turks. The lectures soon became a best-selling book ["With Lawrence in Arabia" (1924)], and the myth of T.E. Lawrence of Arabia was launched full blown into the world.  Since this time there have been several biographies of Lawrence and incessant controversy. A man of seemingly deliberate mystery, there was much about Lawrence and his fabulous legend to raise doubts and inquiries. Now, some twenty years after his death, Richard Aldington has taken a long hard look at the famous legend. Just how much of it, he asked, is true? Was Lawrence actually a modern Hamlet, the hero compelled to act but dogged by self-distrust and self-disgust? Working incisively through the morass of fancy, half-truths, facts and legend, he suggested that the brilliant adventurer-hero, the famed author of "Seven Pillars of Wisdom" was a neurotic and deliberate self-publicist. Collins, his publisher, was approached by Arnold Lawrence and others to stop publication. The book sent the entire British literary public into an uproar. While Mr. Aldington does not pretend to have an exhaustive answer to all the questions, he throws a valuable and provocative light on much of the Lawrence myth that had be obscured up till now.— Stock No. 2958— £30.00

Asher, Michael— Lawrence : The Uncrowned King of Arabia— London: Viking, 1998— 6¼” x 9½”. [xix] + 419pp, illustrations, maps. Red cloth gilt in d/j, As New. T.E. Lawrence, "Lawrence of Arabia", began his role in World War I as a map clerk and ended it as one of the greatest military heroes of the century. He altered the face of the Middle East, helped the Arabs gain their freedom after 500 years of domination by the Ottoman Turks, and almost single-handedly formulated many of the precepts of modern guerilla warfare. Yet he refused any honors for his achievements and spent much of the rest of his life in the ranks of the army and the Royal Air Force, in near obscurity. A brilliant propagandist, rhetorician, and manipulator, Lawrence deliberately turned his life into a conundrum and set out to mystify those who came after him, thereby insuring his place as a mythical cult figure for posterity. He saw himself as an intellectual rather than a soldier, a wanderer after sensations rather than a man of action; he was obsessed throughout his life by the idea of pain and had an abnormal fear of being hurt, yet emerged from the most devastating war in history as the ideal of heroism and courage. A man whose sensitivity allowed him to adjust his personality according to the company he was with, he wore and endless series of masks. But who was the real man behind the masks? Desert explorer and Arab scholar Michael Asher set out to solve this riddle of appearances. Retracing many of Lawrence's desert journeys, he gained startling new insights into his character. The result is an extraordinary biography combining the techniques of the detective story, travelogue, epic history, and high drama. It clears away some of the false trails, captures the authentic atmosphere of the Arab Revolt, and for the first time removes a cloud of film from Lawrence's life.— Stock No. 225— £36.00

Blue cloth gilt in d/j, As New. From the dust-jacket: "For many years the story of Francis Cromie has been overshadowed by histories of the greater tragedy found on the Western Front in World War I. Yet, like TE. Lawrence, Cromie's individual exploits reveal a classic British hero: noble, tenacious and beloved by all who served under him. Churchill called him `a man of exceptional gifts'. Captain Francis Cromie became a submarine commander at the remarkably young age of 24. By this time he had already seen action in the Boxer Rebellion, received the China Medal and had been mentioned in despatches. His compassion and care for his men had already gained him the Royal Humane Society's Bronze Medal, when he almost lost hislife attempting to save a drowning sailor. In 1915 he was chosen to head a flotilla of submarines to attack German shipping in the Baltic Sea. Here,he achieved great success despite the hazardous nature of the climate and the threat of the German navy. He was decorated three times by the Czar of Russia and received the DSO. During his three years in the Baltic he became fluent in Russian. He only survived the difficulties of the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917 because of his consummate skills as a mediator and diplomat. His murder in the British Embassy in 1918 at the age of 37 remained a tragic mystery for many years - until now. Roy Bainton's extensive researcheshave revealed why Cromie has previously been omitted from official histories of that difficult period. The circumstances surrounding his murder exposed facts about his complex character, his relationship with the Bolsheviks and the British Establishment- and importantly the story uncovers the duplicity of the allies as they struggled to formulate a reaction to the tidal wave of the Russian Revolution."— Stock No. 6202— £28.00

"Few people have been privileged to meet, at such an early age, as many famous men as did Winston Churchill. These 25 biographical essays are the result of constant -- even day-to-day -- contact with the most influential leaders and celebrities of the day, including George Bernard Shaw, Hindenburg, Lawrence of Arabia, Hitler, Trotsky, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and Clemenceau, among others. Of the ex-Kaiser William II, he writes: "All he wished was to feel like Napoleon and be like him, without having had to fight his battles... If you are the summit of a volcano, the least you can do is smoke." Many of the figures so tellingly rendered in these sketches are revered by the author, representing the ethics and attitudes he holds in highest esteem. But it is when Churchill voices a reservation about the policies or character of one of his contemporaries that the reader sees most clearly into the soul of the age, and into the mind of the author himself before he moves onto the center state of world history." Among the many essays are those on Joseph Chamberlain, Sir John French, Herbert Henry Asquith, Marshal Foch, Douglas Haig, Arthur James Balfour, etc. First Published in 1932. — Stock No. 5734— £12.00

Black cloth in a scuffed and rubbed d/j, page edges browned otherwise Very Good. "Loneliness and Time" is a pioneering study of travel writing as a literary form and of travel as a cultural phenomenon. Mark Cocker offers a fertile mixture of biography, history, and literary criticism in his portraits of some of the most prominent 20th century British explorer-writers -- including Wilfred Thesiger, Laurens van der Post, Gavin Maxwell, and Lawrence Durrell -- and of the places -- Greece, Tibet -- that obsessed them. In scrutinizing the deep drives that impelled these men to the outer reaches, Cocker makes clear the immensely powerful idea of the journey as quest, as pilgrimage, and how it has come to carry mythological and spiritual import. In each portrait, the journey's meaning is unearthed layer by layer, and we see not only how it operates in the lives of the travelers themselves but its importance to the modern industrial and largely secular societies from which these figures emerge. Cocker show how foreign landscapes and their inhabitants have been used by travel writers as a means to self-definition as well as a source of image, fantasy, even self-image. "Loneliness and Time" illuminates the appeal of travel -- the desire to explore the unfamiliar and the strange -- that captivates us all." From Chapter I: "It is characteristic of the vehement individualism of the travel constituency that its vehicle for literary expression is a work invariably narrated in the first person singular. The travel book, its most common generic title, is traditionally a non-fictional account of the author's journey, and has a mixed cultural pedigree. Marco Polo's "Il milione" and the "Rihlah" of Polo's Arab contemporary, Ibn Batuta, both had considerable impact on their respective medieval societies. More recent British works such as Robert Louis Stevenson's "Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes" and T. E. Lawrence's "Seven Pillars of Wisdom" are considered literary classics and enjoy perennial popularity. Many writers of the 20th century, prominent for their achievements in other genres, have also thought the travel book a sufficiently challenging and valid literary form to attempt it themselves. These include W.H. Auden, Lawrence Durrell, William Golding, Graham Greene, Alduous Huxley, D.H. Lawrence, V.S. Naipaul, Paul Theroux and Evelyn Waugh. Other authors -- Bruce Chatwin, Norman Douglas, Patarick Leigh Fermor, Norman Lewis, Geoffrey Moorhouse, Jan Morris, Dervla Murphy, Eric Newby, Jonathan Raban, Freya Stark, Colin Thubron, Laurens van der Post, Gavin Young -- have achieved international reputations solely or largely as a result of their travel books."— Stock No. 1631— £18.00

Black cloth blocked in silver in d/j, As New. Publisher's blurb: "As John Julius Norwich - Duff Cooper's son - says in his Introduction, his father was a first-rate witness of just about 'every significant event from 1914 to 1950.' But his diaries were also, like Alan Clark's, confessionals about his numerous love affairs. Unlike Alan Clark, however, he was less shy at admitting them to his beloved wife, Lady Diana Cooper. Every great diary requires the diarist to reveal himself to the reader. Duff Cooper does this in spades. He also includes some magnificent set pieces - as a young soldier at the end of WWI, as a politician during the General Strike of 1926, as King Edward VIII's friend at the time of the Abdication, and from Paris after the liberation in 1944, when he became British ambassador. If Duff Cooper's name has dimmed in the 50 years since his death, publication of these diaries will bring him to the fore once again. His family have long resisted publication - indeed Duff Cooper's nephew, the publisher Rupert Hart-Davis, was so shocked by the sexual revelations that he suggested to John Julius Norwich that it might be best for all concerned if they were burnt. Now, superbly edited by John Julius Norwich, who familial link ensures all kinds of additional information as footnotes, these diaries join the ranks. Here is history as it was being made - but with an enthralling social edge, like Alan Clark, Chips, Colville, Nicolson, even Alanbrooke, or if one goes back further, to Pepys and Evelyn."— Stock No. 6209— £28.00

From the Preface of the 1980 Heron Books Edition: "When Lawrence died [in 1935], Peter Davies asked me to write an appreciation for his series of Biographies, lending me several sets of Lawrence's unpublished letters, and a copy of the "Seven Pillars", then a great rarity. In his mother's lifetime it was not decent to name him as the natural son of (Sir) Thomas Chapman, but I was wrong in describing him as her third, not her second child. On military operations, I followed the authorities then available, and have not seen much later evidence that would incline me to revise that part of my narrative; on his diplomatic activities, I consulted Professor Temperley, the historian of the Versailles [Peace] Conference; on his return to Whitehall, Sir John Shuckburgh, Lawrence's senior colleague; and on his interest in books and printing, Bruce Rogers, who knew him well. Since Lawrence was regarded as a heroic figure by judges so diverse as [General Sir Edmund] Allenby, Churchill, [Sir Hugh] Trenchard, George Bernard Shaw, Chaim Weizmann, and by many others who saw him in action, we need give no weight to the hunch of Richard Aldington that he was merely a compulsive liar. Believe that and you can believe anything. Yet we are not likely to get at the truth of some episodes in Lawrence's life, obscured as they are by his love of mystification, by the double-talk of the Secret Service, and, we must now add, by his sexual fantasies. After reading what has since been published on Lawrence, and having profited by the conversation of Suleiman Mousa, his Jordanian biographer [author of "T. E.  Lawrence: An Arab View" (1966)], I should not write this book very differently today. Let it stand as a statement of what Lawrence meant to his contemporaries."— Stock No. 437— £20.00

Paperback, page edges browned, otherwise Near Fine. Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle? Yes, that was the name by which the future creator of Sherlock Holmes was baptised in Edinburgh in 1859. As Holmes would say, the discovery in itself is a trivial one, but it does symbolise that this book presents a new story and a new character. Using extensive new evidence in Edinburgh, Stonyhurst (where Arthur Conan Doyle went to school) and elsewhere, Owen Dudley Edwards shows how Conan Doyle's boyhood experiences shaped his literary attitudes and much of the genius of his writing. The author shows how the teaching of the English Jesuits profoundly influenced their pupil, much as a little later their Irish colleagues dominated the intellectual development of James Joyce. Conan Doyle's Edinburgh affected him in all sorts of ways, from sharpening the influence of Walter Scott, Macaulay and Robert Louis Stevenson, to providing him with not just one but a whole series of figures who inspired Sherlock Holmes and Professor Challenger. Dramatic new discoveries have produced for the first time the contributions to the making of Holmes and the great gallery of Conan doyle creations by figures as diverse as poet Bryan Charles Waller, heir to the rich literary tradition of Victorian London, and the American ex-slave and abolitionist leader Henry Highland Garnet. It is a story taking the reader from the ice-fields of the Arctic to the sweltering coasts of Africa, and showing the effects of extraordinary physical adventures and traumatic psychological experiences in giving Conan Doyle his depth and range as a writer. It ends with his first major novel, Micah Clarke, and with his creation of Holmes and Watson. It is an outstanding use of historical evidence to present the origins of a fictional detective who embodied the finest principles of historical investigation; and it is also a quest as exciting in its way as one of Conan Doyle's own Sherlock Holmes stories.— Stock No. 5934— £12.00

Farndale, Nigel— Haw-Haw: The Tragedy of William and Margaret Joyce — London: Macmillan, 2005— 6¼” x 9½”. [ix] + 374pp, illustrations. Brown cloth gilt in d/j, As New. From the dust-jacket: "William and Margaret Joyce - Lord and Lady Haw-Haw - became one of the most ridiculed, feared and mythologized partnerships of the Second World War. His 'Germany Calling' broadcasts delivered in an upper-class drawl, and her lesser known, though no less insidious, pro-Nazi wireless talks, were part of the very fabric of the Home Front. Yet when they were captured in May 1945, only he was charged with high treason - a fact even more surprising when it became apparent that, unlike Margaret, William was not a British subject...Authorized by William Joyce's daughter, Heather, and based on new interviews and previously unpublished archives, including letters, diaries and recently declassified Security Service files, Haw-Haw is the meticulously researched and vividly written biography of this most complex and eccentric couple. Margaret was flirtatious and nonchalant, William was droll and intellectual, both were bloody minded. Fuelled by alcohol, their relationship was tempestuous but also surprisingly tender. On the 60th anniversary of their capture, Nigel Farndale recreates their lives together for the first time: from the shadows of Oswald Mosley's;British Union of Fascists in London, to Josef Goebbels' Ministry of Propaganda in war-ravaged Berlin. Hubris, bigotry and sexual intrigue followed them across Europe until the end of the war when they were arrested - immediately creating a political furore. The establishment wanted Joyce executed, but the evidence against him was inconclusive and resulted in a sensational trial that many legal minds felt was 'a blot on the British justice system'. Furthermore, Margaret was never prosecuted. Was this an act of mercy on behalf of the government, or had William secured her life by agreeing not to reveal his links to MI5? Nigel Farndale has written a compelling and evocative study of two people whose passions overrode everything they did and which eventually led to William becoming the last civilian to be hanged for treason in England, and to Margaret drinking herself to death. This is an extraordinary book about an extraordinary marriage."— Stock No. 12448— £14.00

From the dust-jacket: "Although from different backgrounds, David Lloyd George and Winston Churchill forged a close friendship, delighting in each other's wit, oratory and unconventionality. Both were outsiders. Neither attended university. Above all, both loved political sparring - often together, in the epic parliamentary battles of the start of the century. Theirs was a personal friendship that involved frequent holidays together and support of each other's families. But their real shared passion was politics. For ten years between 1904 and 1914 they met together every day for an hour's private discussion. Lloyd George profoundly influenced Churchill's political philosophy and played a formative role in his career. Drawing on unseen family archive material, Robert Lloyd George provides an intimate biography of the friendship between his great-grandfather and Churchill, from their public politics to their private passions. He throws fresh light on the two greatest statesmen of twentieth century Britain in peace and in war, and on one of the most enduring friendships in modern politics."— Stock No. 12551— £15.00

Black cloth in d/j which has been taped to pastedowns, pages discoloured otherwise Very Good. Glubb served in 7th Fd. Coy. R.E., 1915-18; covers Ypres, Arras, Somme, Cambrai, etc. "Lt.-Gen. Sir John Glubb KCB, CMG, DSO, OBE, MC, the famous "Glubb Pasha", Commander of the Arab Legion, has gone back to the start of his military career and published the diary he kept as an officer in the Great War. On 24 November 1915 2nd-Lieutenant John Glubb left for France at age 18 to join the 7th Field Company, Royal Engineers, in the Ypres Salient. A regular soldier, he was to serve at Ypres, on the Somme, at Arras and Cambrai, for long periods commanding his company, until the night of 21 August 1917 when he was terribly wounded by a German shell. He survived and, after nearly a year in hospitals and convalescence, rejoined his old unit in July 1918 to share the final victory of the British Army on the Western Front. This is the diary of those years. For the military historian it is of prime importance as the narrative of a professional soldier destined for high military command and, however far in the future, of the historian of the very different Arab world. Both these latent qualities increase the value of the diary as an historical document. But it is rather more than this: it is also intensely human. The young subaltern's simple prose which catches and intensifies the horrors -- the wounds, the dying, the old corpses, the stench, dirt, ruin and desolation of the battle-zone -- is as sensitive to the contrasting, and deeply felt, natural beauty of woods and fields and wildlife, to the undamaged, inhabited towns and villages with their battle of life behind the lines. The diary enables its readers to share the sufferings, the fortitude, the heroism, and the final triumph of the indomitable British soldier on the Western Front." Glubb served in Iraq from 1920 to 1926 and, after, became Administrative Inspector to the Iraq Government, transferring to Transjordan in 1930. He succeeded Peake Pasha as Commander of the Arab Legion and served in that capacity from 1939 to 1956. Formed in 1921, the Arab Legion was a defence force, but served with the Allies in North Africa during World War II. — Stock No. 1645— £20.00

Holmes, Richard— In the Footsteps of Churchill— London: BBC Books, 2005— 6¼” x 9½”. 351pp, illustrations. Black cloth blocked in silver in d/j, As New. To commemorate the fortieth anniversary of Churchill s death, renowned historian Richard Holmes brings his unparalleled knowledge of the military together with his eye for illuminating detail to his biography of one of Britain s greatest leaders. Although much has been written on Churchill s management of Britain through the crisis years of the Second World War, In the Footsteps of Churchill takes the reader back to the explosive colour of his early life to discover the influences that shaped the man. Holmes examines how the qualities that made Churchill great also led him to commit catastrophic blunders. The recklessness that made him a hero when he was a young correspondent during the Boer War, for example cost thousands of Allied lives when it emerged during his planning of the Gallipoli campaign in 1915. From the beginning, we are immersed in the colourful detail and atmosphere of Churchill s world. From his aristocratic birth to a syphilitic father and a famously attractive mother, through Churchill s struggles at school and his adventures as a foreign correspondent in Rajasthan, Churchill s extraordinary character is illuminated by Holmes s portrait of a flawed but brilliant and humane man.— Stock No. 6168— £24.00

"T. E. Lawrence was a true scholar, a man of irresistible charm who genuinely cared for the Arabs. He was also a shocking fabricator who invented, embellished, and use his own legend. This controversial and provocative biography overturns the mythology that surrounds this enigmatic man. Using previously unavailable sources as well as published material, Lawrence James reconstructs T. E. Lawrence's wartime career, examining how it was translated into legend during the 1920s and '30s. "The Golden Warrior" gives a brilliant account of Lawrence's adventures during World War I and the British Empire's intricate manipulations in the Middle East. James shows how the Arab revolt was really instigated by British Intelligence, which tried to fight Turkey and to undermine Islamic unity. Using gold and rifles, Lawrence and the British persuaded conservative Arabs to abandon Turkey and fight for an Arab state. In one of the most startling revelations James convincingly argues that Lawrence concocted the infamous episode at Dera where he was supposedly tortured and raped by the Turks. "The Golden Warrior" also traces Lawrence's efforts to sabotage the French and reveals his account of the capture of Damascus as pure invention. In his infatuation with the Arabs, Lawrence exaggerated their warrior abilities and omitted descriptions of the brutal and undisciplined Arab mob that looted while Australian, British, and Indian forces really captured the town. No other book so brilliantly describes British manipulations of the region, Lawrence's Machiavellian exercise in rewriting the war, and how "the betrayal of the Arabs" has colored the history of the Middle East. But James doesn't only show Lawrence as a shocking fabricator. He also explains why Lawrence still captures our imagination as a man who controlled his own destiny, and as one of the world's last heroes."— Stock No. 1576— £36.00

A final masterly work by Jenkins. In a ranking of Chief Executives, no more than three of Roosevelt's predecessors could truly be placed in contention with his standing, and of his successors, there are so far none. Roy Jenkins tackles all of the nuances and intricacies of FDR's character. He was a skilled politician with astounding flexibility; he oversaw an incomparable mobilization of American industrial and military effort; and all the while he aroused great loyalty and dazzled those around him with his personal charm.

Junger, Ernst [With an introduction by Paddy Griffith]— The Storm of Steel : from the diary of a German storm-troop officer on the Western Front— London: Constable, 1994 [first published by Chatto & Windus, 1929]— 5½" x 8¾". 319pp. Black cloth in d/j, Fine. This, his first (and most widely read) book was published as "In Stahlgewittern" in 1920 and has been translated into eight languages. It is his war diary written in novelistic form. In 1912, at the age of 17,  Junger ran away to join the French Foreign Legion. Rescued by his parents he promptly enlisted as an officer cadet with the German infantry at the outbreak of World War I in 1914; became a lieutenant and served in the 73rd Hanoverian Fusilier Regiment. After four years on the Western Front he had been wounded seven times and been awarded Germany's most prestigious award for valour, the Pour Le Merite. He went on to become a national hero and a writer of international repute: "It is not impossible that among the English readers of this book there may be one who in 1915 and 1916 was in one of those trenches that were woven like a web among the ruins of Monch-au-Bois. In that case he had opposite him at that time the 73rd Hanoverian Fusiliers, who wear as their distinctive badge a brassard with "Gibraltar" inscribed on it in gold, in memory of the defence of that fortress under General Elliot; for this, besides Waterloo, has its place in the regiment's history. At the time I refer to I was a 19-year-old lieutenant in command of a platoon, and my part of the line was easily recognizable from the English side by a row of tall shell-stripped trees that rose from the ruins of Monchy. My left flank was bounded by the sunken road leading to Berles-au-Bois, which was in the hands of the English; my right was marked by a sap running out from our lines, one that helped us many a time to make our presence felt by means of bombs and rifle-grenades. At that time, before the battle of the Somme, which opened a new chapter in the history of war, the struggle had not taken on that grim and mathematical aspect which case over its landscape a deeper and deeper gloom. There was more rest for the soldier than in the later years when he was thrown into one murderous battle after another; and so it is that many of those days come back to my memory now with a light on them that is almost peaceful."

[xv] + 538pp, portrait frontis, maps. Blue cloth gilt in d/j, As New. The publication of Victor Klemperer's diaries brings to light one of the most extraordinary documents of the Nazi period. The son of a rabbi, Klemperer was by 1933 a professor of languages in Dresden. Over the next decade he, like other German Jews, lost his job, his house and many of his friends, even his cat, as Jews were not allowed to own pets. He remained loyal to his country, determined not to emigrate, and convinced that each successive Nazi act against the Jews must be the last. Saved for much of the war from the Holocaust by his marriage to a gentile, he was able to escape in the aftermath of the Allied bombing of Dresden and survived the remaining months of the war in hiding. Throughout, Klemperer kept a diary, for a Jew in Nazi Germany a daring act in itself. Shocking and moving by turns, it is a remarkable and important document, as powerful and astonishing in its way as Anne Frank's classic. The second volume of two, this covers the period from the beginnings of the Holocaust to the end of the war, telling the story of Klemperer's increasing isolation, his near miraculous survival, his awareness of the development of the growing Holocaust as friends and associates disappeared, and his narrow escapes from deportation and the Dresden firebombing in 1945.— Stock No. 1491— £36.00

Tan cloth in chipped, grubby d/j, spine cocked, previous owner's name inscribed, Good. "Lawrence of Arabia died in 1935, but the story of his life has held he imagination of succeeding generations more than that of any other figure of the age. Yet every attempt to solve the riddle of this extraordinary and enigmatic man has failed. For three reasons everything that has been written about him up till now has giving only an incomplete picture. First, man of Lawrence's private papers were placed at his death in the Bodleian Library, Oxford, to be kept secret until the year 2000. Second, some of those who knew him best chose to remain silent for personal reasons. Third, a veil of official silence has hitherto been drawn across Lawrence's activities as a secret agent.  Recently, however, a man who held the key to a secret part of Lawrence's life decided to speak; Professor A.W. allowed the authors access to the documents at the Bodleian; and certain secret government papers became available. From all this and from the world-wide investigation that followed, a completely new picture of Lawrence has emerged. His life can now be seen to have divided itself into four parts. The first, his period of training as a secret agent under the guise of an archaeologist working in Asia Minor; the second his manoeuvres in this capacity to prevent the Middle East from falling under French influence and to secure the area for Britain as a new "Brown Dominion". Into this part comes his role in the Desert Revolt and his influence in the foundation of what became Israel. The third part concerns his various attempts to escape into a secret life after the war, first by joining the Royal Air Force as an aircraftman, then as a private in the Tank Corps. And finally there is the unexpected blossoming of his early middle age.  Almost all of this period has been completely unknown up till now. Each of these phases of Lawrence's career has its counterpart in the inspiration he received from four different people. In Part 1 it is D.G. Hogarth, his mentor; in Part 2, S.A., the mysterious person to whom he dedicated "Seven Pillars of Wisdom"; in Part 3, John Bruce, the instrument of his masochistic expiation of the feelings of failure and guilt that afflicted him after the war; in Part 4, Charlotte, the wife of Bernard Shaw, a mother-figure, who brought warmth and understanding into the beginnings of self-acceptance in Lawrence's middle-age. "The Secret Lives of Lawrence of Arabia" tells, for the first time, the full story of his private lives and reveals much that has never been told about his career. And at the end, the reader unravels the final secret -- that he was indeed, a hero. If not the hero in whom we have been brought up to believe, then another kind, deeper, infinitely more complex, and far more important than was ever imagined."— Stock No. 1658— £20.00

He was forced to have Jonathan Cape publish "Revolt in the Desert" in 1927 to earn enough money to avoid bankruptcy. The majority of these illustrations are present in this edition. Eric Kennington provided the greatest number and went to Arabia to paint the Arab leaders in the flesh. Winston S.  Churchill wrote in his contribution to "T. E. Lawrence by His Friends" (1937): "As a narrative of war and adventure, as a presentation of all that the Arabs mean to the world, the Seven Pillars is unsurpassable. It ranks with the greatest books ever written in the English language." "All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.

Lovell, Mary S.— A Rage to Live : A biography of Richard and Isabel Burton— London: Little, Brown & Co., 1998— 6" x 9½". 910pp, illustrations. Black cloth blocked in silver, no d/j, otherwise Near Fine. Many men stand out in the great age of empirical exploration in the 19th century. One of those is Sir Richard Burton whose unconventional behaviour and daring adventures led him to be frequently described as 'the most interesting figure of the nineteenth century.' He combined a quite extraordinary intellect, to which his fluency in twenty-nine languages and numerous dialects is a fitting testament, with a flair for daring and fearlessness in his explorations. His learned translation of the Indian love epic, the Kama Sutra, and very unconventionality have combined to make previous biographers doubt his heterosexuality. Mary Lovell has uncovered hitherto unresearched material to rebut this assertion and has written a brilliant portrait of Burton and his wife and love of his life, Isabel Arundell. As this brilliant biography of the couple shows, they were controversial in the closed Victorian society in which they lived. But unlike previous assertions they enjoyed a romantic courtship and successful marriage of almost 30 years until Sir Richard's death in 1890.— Stock No. 1396— £28.00

Revered or reviled, Gertrude Bell was a commanding figure: scholar, linguist, archeologist, traveller and "orientalist". Belonging to the tradition of the great British Middle East enthusiasts of the early 20th century, she explored the Ottoman Empire during and after World War I and was hugely instrumental in the post-war reconfiguration of the Arab states in the Middle East. She was a prime mover in drawing up Iraq's boundaries and establishing a constitutional monarchy there with a parliament, civil service and legal system; she was influential in creating a state which had all the trappings of independence while remaining a virtual British colony. This book offers a contribution to the study of Bell's colourful life - exploring the personal passions, desires and relationships that drove her - as well as to an understanding of the creation of a country so central to the instability of today's Middle East. Using various sources, including Bell's own diaries and letters, Liora Lukitz provides a portrait of this influential character and the tragedy, vulnerability and frustrations that were key to her quest for both a British-dominated Middle East, and relief from the torture of her romantic failures.— Stock No. 6430— £36.00

Red cloth gilt in chipped, creased d/j, otherwise Very Good/G. "In "A Prince of Our Disorder", John Mack has created a portrait of Lawrence of Arabia that far transcends conventional biography.  Humanely and objectively, he helps to define the relationship between Lawrence's inner life and his historically significant actions, between the private man and his public impact. In coming to terms with Lawrence the man and the myth, John Mack delineates, as no other biographer has done, the meaning of what Lawrence sought to accomplish, what he did or did not achieve, what his amazing capacity for self-analysis has to tell us, and why it was that Lawrence, perhaps the most visible and celebrated anti-imperialist of his period, became the eventual victim of the dream he struggled so heroically to create. In human terms, "A Prince of Our Disorder" tells a strange, often heartbreaking story. And because of John Mack's absolute command of the psychiatric dimensions of Lawrence's personality, countless aspects of the man's career now assume an urgent congruence, even inevitability. Step by step, the reader comes to understand Lawrence at the most critical points in his life: -- as a young man, acutely sensitive to the personal and social stigma of his illegitimacy, a pain exacerbated by his own sense of failure and his mother's insistence on his striving for great achievements. -- as a traveler and archeologist on his first trip thought the Middle East, where he started to move away from his Anglo-Irish self, discovering and mastering a unique capacity to identify with the feelings, hopes, fears, and way of life totally different from himself, and to draw them, in turn, into an identification with him; -- as the daring, superbly prepared warrior-leader "El Aurens", who recognized the incredible confluence of historical opportunity, psychological need, and remarkable capabilities that made is possible for his dream -- particularly his vision of a modern crusade with himself as armed prophet -- to be enacted in reality; -- as an obsessed statesman, who assumed personal responsibility (without official position or orders) for the course, conduct, and resolution of the Arab Revolt; -- as a spiritually, physically exhausted human being, traumatized by his torture and humiliation by the Turks at Der'a, disillusioned with Arab behavior and political maneuvering after the capture of Damascus, and tormented by the powerful, aggressive, and egotistic surge for fame and power which he perceived in himself -- and rejected; -- and, finally, as the anonymous serviceman who had transformed himself into a person without ambition, but still capable of useful work -- the "actual" Lawrence, who for the rest of his life remained the elusive, severe critic of the heroic figure from whose growing legend he would never completely escape. In the range and depth of its insights, "A Prince of Our Disorder" is unsurpassed. At every stage, John Mack examines the pertinent history, politics, and sociology of the time in order to weigh the real forces with which Lawrence contended and which impinged upon him. Thus, through Lawrence's own astonishingly frank revelations of his inner life in "Seven Pillars of Wisdom" and other works, through the recollections of those who knew the man personally and provided heretofore private information about unfamiliar areas of Lawrence's personality or unknown motives for his actions, and through judicious comparisons of such personal reminiscences with the documented actualities of the era, we have at last a biography of Lawrence that captures the whole fabric of his life. By addressing himself to the crucial questions of the durability of Lawrence's fame and achievements, John Mack has given us the full measure of the man E.M. Forster called "the troubled and troublous genius who fascinated his generation and failed to fit into it.""— Stock No. 3179— £50.00

During his brief 38 years of life, Sir Charles Kingsford Smith (1897-1935) was one of the most celebrated public idols in history, becoming for a few years in the late 20s and early 30s a legend across the world for his brilliance as a pilot and his charismatic style among the pioneers of long-distance flying. The first person to fly an aircraft across the Pacific from America to Australia (in 1928) he broke many solo flying records, and this brought him a status greater than any modern astronaut - a crowd of 300,000 greeted him in Sydney. But the price of his heroism was high and the demands for celebrity and a messy private life ended in tragedy off the coast of Burma in 1935 in an attempt to fly from England to Australia.

From the dust-jacket: "Who was Jean Moulin? According to the official version, he was the exiled General de Gaulle's emissary to the French Resistance movements during World War II and became the political head of the Resistance in 1943. He was captured in Lyons and tortured by the Gestapo, and is believed to have died a few days later without talking. After the war his ashes were transferred to the Pantheon - France's greatest honour. So much for the legend. But what is the truth of Jean Moulin? Patrick Marnham set out to write "an uncritical biography of a very brave man" but his research uncovered a far more fascinating and ambivalent figure. It took Marnham from the Provencal village where Jean Moulin spent his childhood, through the scenes of his career and his bohemian life as an artist in Montparnasse, right up to the doctor's room in Caluire where he was sitting when Klaus Barbie's Gestapo burst through the door and where, in 1987, Marnham interviewed the doctor himself. His biographical detection discloses a plot within a plot and summarizes the evidence as to who actually killed Jean Moulin. He also reveals how a heroic legend was manufactured to take the place of a heroic life."— Stock No. 1931— £30.00

Yellow cloth gilt in d/j, Fine. The book chronicles the last months of Lawrence's life, from November 1934 to May 1935, much of which is told in Lawrence's own words from letters. The book gives details of the fatal crash and subsequent inquest, on "George VII" (the motorcycle Lawrence was riding), and a chapter on Lawrence's cottage at Clouds Hill, Dorset. From the Preface: "T.E. Lawrence (1888-1935) was a complex and controversial man. As archaeologist, scholar, soldier and writer, he moved in the highest corridors of power, yet later he chose to hide from his fame as Lawrence of Arabia by enlisting as a serviceman in the RAF. As evidenced in letters and people's remembrances Lawrence possessed a strange "magic" which transformed people he met. He enabled others to realize their own potential abilities. Indeed, this influence is timeless. Sixty years after his death his achievements continue to inspire. John E. Mack's book "A Prince of Our Disorder" describes Lawrence's persuasive enchantment as a "spark" that lightens the darker sides of our psyches as we come to know of Lawrence's life and to empathize with the situations he faced. Attempting to unravel Lawrence's last few weeks of life has brought both authors face to face with the nature of Lawrence's psychological make-up. While it is a truism that the act of one individual writing about another brings in its wake psychological changes, subtle or profound, in the case of Lawrence we are not the first to experience sleepless nights pondering the tangled Lawrence enigma. The book purposely draws heavily on Lawrence's own written words, mainly from published and unpublished letters, where his private, gentle and tortuous feelings become unlocked. His last days are described in comprehensive, chronological order. The story begins with Lawrence's final three months in the RAF at Bridlington, supervising the redesign of rescue motorboats. Many chapters cover the specifics of his motorbike crash (13 May 1935), crash witnesses, and his five-day battle against death in hospital. The inquest reports are quoted, as well as full details of his funeral. Once, when feeling despondent, Lawrence compared his depression to a leaf falling from a tree. "Leaves in the Wind" was Lawrence's last and unpublished writing project. It seemed natural to adopt the title for this book."— Stock No. 6151— £60.00

As a young man, he said that he had three ambitions: to marry an heiress, win the Derby and become Prime Minister. By his mid-forties, he had achieved all three. But his political career was clouded by his strange, mercurial character. Self-centred, impulsive and neurotic, he mixed a desire for prestige with extreme sensitivity to any criticism. So mentally exhausted did he find the Premiership that he was crippled by insomnia and virtually had a nervous breakdown, while his private nature gave rise to endless gossip about his sexual inclinations. After retiring from the Liberal Leadership in 1896, he became an increasingly solitary, brooding figure, wandering restlessly from one of his mansions to another.— Stock No. 6165— £36.00

[xvi] + 364pp, portrait frontis. Red cloth gilt in d/j, As New. Influential Military Correspondent of The Times, 1903-1918, Lieutenant-Colonel Charles a Cout Repington CMG was a brilliant staff officer and it was expected that he would reach the highest military rank. But in January 1902 Repington was obliged to retire from the Army - he was alleged to have broked the code of behaviour appropriate for an officer and a gentleman. To supplement his income he became a journalist and in an amazingly short time he was established as Britiain's leading military correspondent. His reputation was deserved. He not only made the most of his Army experience and knowledge and his unrivalled access to influential sources of information, but he also had the ability to write about complex subjects in an interesting, clear and simple manner. Repington was an assiduous correspondent. This selection of the letters written while Military Correspondent of The Times covers those political, military and strategic issues upon which he campaigned. They are arranged chronologically and demonstrate a diversity of recipients as well as subjects. Historians today may debate just how influential Repington was but his contemporaries never doubted that his was an important and significant contribution to the shaping of Britain's military response to Germany in August 1914. Throughout the First World War, until his resignation from Printing House Square in January 1918, Repington employed his pen in a series of hard fought battles, generally on the side of the General Staff against what he saw as the follies of politicians. By publicizing the shortage of shells in May 1915, Repington played a not insignificant part in bringing down the last Liberal government. Repington has been unfairly characterised as a too-clever-by-half, intriguing, unpatriotic scoundrel. His letters reveal something of his true qualities and character while also serving to illuminate that fascinating boundary where publicity and politics merge or, more often, collide.— Stock No. 1219— £80.00

Von Papen, a German officer, was first a military attache to the US (1913-15), before serving in the Middle East with Falkenhayn, Kress and Liman von Sanders. He eventually went on to be Chancellor of Germany and then Vice-Chancellor and Reich Commissioner for Prussia under Hitler. "Franz von Papen's career has consistently reflected the fortunes of his country. As court page to Kaiser Wilhem II he witnessed the traditional pomp of imperialism: as a prisoner in post-war labour camps -- convicted by his own countrymen, though cleared of war guilt by the Nuremberg Tribunal -- he was a victim of the chaos following defeat. Between these two extremes he spent 40 years at the centre of events, and whether the balance he maintained there was the result of a clear or an ambivalent conscience is still a matter of conjecture. In these "Memoirs" he gives the first full account of his activities as military attache in the United States from 1913-15; the story of Allenby's campaign in the Middle East, as seen from "the other side"; a detailed analysis of the decay of the Weimar Republic and the events which culminated in his Reich Chancellorship. He describes the stand he made at the Lausanne Conference in his attempt to modify the hardships imposed on Germany under the Treaty of Versailles and thus prevent the collapse of parliamentary democracy, which he foresaw. He gives an account of his attitude to the National Socialists as their power increased; of his collaboration with Hitler, whose first government he joined as Vice-Chancellor, in 1933; of his outspoken criticism of the regime in his "Marburg" speech, the murder of his colleagues, and his own house arrest during the Roehm "Putsch"; and of his subsequent acceptance of the posts of Minister in Vienna and Ambassador to Turkey. On 10 April 1945 he was arrested by the Allies, and the last chapters of his book, describing his experiences at Nuremburg, throw an interesting light on some of his notorious fellow defendants. No document has come out of post-war Germany has covered so wide a field, and none has given a clearer picture of German policy at home and abroad during the first half of our century."— Stock No. 3328— £20.00

Piper, Leonard— Dangerous Waters : The Life and Death of Erskine Childers— London: Hambledon and London, 2003— 6¼” x 9½”. [x] + 261pp, illustrations. Blue cloth gilt in d/j, As New. From the dust-jacket: "In The Riddle of the Sands, a gripping spy story set amongst the shoals and mists of the North Sea coast in the years before the First World War, Erskine Childers fathered the modern genre of spy adventures, as well as writing a great yachting classic. Unlike John Buchan or John Le Carre, however, Childers himself led a life involving spying, gun-running and conspiracy, and a constant search for adventure and danger, which led in the end to his execution by firing squad in Ireland in 1923. Dangerous Waters: The Life and Death of Erskine Childers tells the extraordinary story of a brilliant and highly talented eccentric. A pioneering yachtsman in the early days of small yacht sailing, Childers became such a fervent supporter of Irish nationalism that he ran guns to Ireland on his boat. In the Irish Civil War his extremism, and wish to take part in active service rather than writing propaganda, led to his betrayal, trial and execution."— Stock No. 6166— £50.00

It also brings to light Holmes's close friendships with key figures of the day, including Oscar Wilde, Sigmund Freud and Cecil Rhodes; and exposes the truth about his cocaine addiction. As a young man, Holmes was drawn to the stage and ran away from Cambridge to work in the West End with the actor Henry Irving. Later, his older brother Mycroft drew him into unofficial work for the British government - including a hitherto unknown conspiracy to murder the Irish nationalist sympathizer Professor Moriarty at the Reichenbach Falls.

"Near the beginning of this mellow and gently humorous memoir the author remarks: "The War brought me to a deepened consciousness of peace-time values and enjoyments and a new determination to get the best out of life wherever I happened to be." In his admirable prose he conveys to the reader this sense of heightened appreciation of his own experiences and surroundings, beginning when he was invalided home in 1915 after 16 months on the Front, and ending just after his American lecture tour in 1920. These were not easy days for the soldier-poet, because he was then publicly raising his voice against war, an attitude far from popular. In this connection, he tells a story about Winston Churchill, then Munitions Minister, with whom Sassoon argued his views. As his readers know, Mr. Sassoon has a sensitive feeling for people and an equally sensitive manner of writing about them. Since it has been his good fortune to know many of the great men in English literature, we find here memorable portraits of [John] Galsworthy, [Robert] Bridges, [John] Masefield, the Sitwells [Edith & Robert], T. E. Lawrence, and many others. There is a particularly notable treatment of [Thomas] Hardy; a story about Wilfred Owen which no one except Sassoon could ever tell, for Sassoon knew and understood him both as human being and poet. In America he met, among others, Robert Frost, Carl Sandburg, Amy Lowell, Vachel Lindsay. It was there, too, that he met Sam Behrman, afterward his close friend, and the story of their New York adventures is delightful. In summing up his account of these years, the author says that this is "ordered understanding of one's existence through afterthought and introspection." To which we add that here is the sort of lucid and musical, yet simple and natural writing that is too rarely encountered today." The author served in the Royal Welch Fusiliers with Bernard Adams ("Nothing of Importance"), Robert Graves ("Good-Bye to All That"), J.C. Dunn ("The War the Infantry Knew"), David Jones ("In Parenthesis") and Frank Richards ("Old Soldiers Never Die"). Sassoon describes the first time he met T. E. Lawrence when Edward Marsh asked him to dine at the Savoy and to meet a somewhat distinguished Colonel. "...much perplexed by the personality of the Hejaz celebrity, I reached a point when, emboldened by good wine, I looked across the table and exclaimed, 'What I can't understand is how you came to be a Colonel!'

Green cloth gilt in a rubbed d/j, otherwise Near Fine. Siegfried Sassoon was almost 28 when he enlisted on 3 August 1914. It was the terrible impact of the Western Front that turned him from a versifier into a poet. These diaries, written in tiny notebooks, often by the light of a candle in dug-out or billet, provided the material for "Memoirs of a Fox-Hunting Man", "Memoirs of an Infantry Officer" and "Sherston's Progress".  Here are raw, immediate reports on events as they happened and included are many poems which Sassoon eventually thought worthy of publication only in a periodical or not at all. They form an unforgettable picture of an appalling time by one of its greatest recorders.— Stock No. 3336— £120.00

"From the early 1920s to the late 1960s, T. E. Lawrence's life and career were largely the subject of sensationalist speculation, fired mainly by the romantic image of "Lawrence of Arabia". Then, as the result of various political, scholarly, and intellectual developments, study of Lawrence's career and influence began to take on a new aspect. This fascinating collection brings together 13 new essays by pioneers as well as by some of the more recent writers in the Lawrence field. Its purpose is to establish serious study of Lawrence's multi-faceted career by providing balanced, fully documented and up-to-date perspectives by an international group of writers. The book opens with an introduction by the editor, Stephen E.  Tabachnick, outlining Lawrence's life, comparing him to 5 contemporaries, analyzing all important work done on him, particularly since 1969 (including a discussion of problems yet to be solved), and putting the collection's essays in context. "The T. E. Lawrence Puzzle" will appeal to Lawrence experts and to general readers interested in objective, reasoned views of a fascinating personality who has only now begun to be understood free of mythical or debunking visions." The 13 essays are: "Lawrence's Medievalism" by M.D. Allen, "The Assertion and Denial of the Romantic Will in 'Seven Pillars of Wisdom' and 'The Mint'" by Thomas J.  O'Donnell, "'Seven Pillars of Wisdom': The Secret, Contestable Documentary" by Keith N.

Taylor, Andrew— God's Fugitive : The Life of Charles Montagu Doughty— London: HarperCollins, 1999— 6¼" x 9½". [xxv] + 351pp, maps, illustrations. Black cloth gilt in d/j, As New. "Explorer, scholar, scientist, author and poet, Charles Montagu Doughty (1843-1926) was one of the greatest 19th century adventurers, the progenitor of a noble tradition that includes Lawrence of Arabia, to whom he was a mentor, and Wilfred Thesiger: British writers who have been fascinated by the Beduin, and in particular by that strange, mythic part of the world, the Empty Quarter -- a phrase which Doughy introduced to the West. Born in Suffolk in 1843, the son of a clergyman, in the 1870s Doughty spent two years wandering through Arabia, first with the "Hadj" pilgrimage, then joining nomadic bands of Arabs, sometimes being kept as a virtual prisoner in far-flung desert towns. Unyielding in his independence of mind, the tall, red-bearded Doughty consistently refused to conceal his Christianity, making his perilous travels even more dangerous: he was threatened with death several times, spurned, insulted and often beaten by angry mobs. He risked all many times over, sometimes seemingly possessed by an almost messianic vision of himself; yet he was ultimately to find among the Beduin a chivalry and honour that suited his own unbending temperament. The story of Doughty's obsessive archaeological investigations and wide-ranging observations of Arabia and desert life were published in 1888 as the vast and celebrated "Travels in Arabia Deserta". Although the book brought him little in the way of financial reward, he was now feted by the literary establishment; but his abrasiveness and refusal to compromise meant he frequently found himself at odds with the learned societies of England and Europe, his work rejected and his genius (as he saw it) neglected. Doughty was far more than an eccentric traveller and adventurer. He was dedicated to his great mission of rescuing the English language from the decadence into which he believed it had fallen since the eras of Chaucer and Spenser, and spent ten years devising, researching and writing a four-volume blank-verse epic about the origins of Britain. He died in 1926, his literary reputation largely restored thanks to the efforts of T. E. Lawrence. Andrew Taylor's entertaining and richly detailed biography brings to life one of the most intrepid, romantic and fascinating British scholar-eccentrics." His monumental work "Travels in Arabia Deserta" was first published in 1888. In 1921, T. E. Lawrence convinced Jonathan Cape to reprint the book and contributed a Foreword to it. "Arabia Deserta" is perhaps one of the best-known classics of exploration and travel. Per T. E.  Lawrence: "Doughty's completeness is devastating. There is nothing we would take away, little we could add. He took all Arabia for his province, and has left to his successors only the poor part of specialists. We may write books on parts of the desert or some of the history of it; but there can never be another picture of the whole, in our time, because here it is all said." TE, in a letter to George Bernard Shaw wrote: "A Yank firm (Bone & Liverpool, or something) have pirated my Arabia Deserta preface, and are cheerful that the book is selling well in the States. It's nice to feel good enough to be stolen."— Stock No. 2867— £24.00

Ugaki, Admiral Matome [Translated By Masataka Chihaya; edited by Donald M. Goldstein and Katherine V.

Black cloth gilt in a rubbed d/j, Near Fine. An English translation of this key account by a ranking Japanese Naval Officer during WWII. Ugaki was Chief of Staff to the Combined Fleet under Admiral Yamamoto, and was involved in most of the major campaigns and decisions in the Pacific. Never before available in English, the diary of Admiral Ugaki is the only candid and personal account of World War II by a major Japanese military leader. Revealing of the Japanese military mind and analytical about Japan's conduct of the war, Ugaki's diary begin in October 1941 and includes detailed entries covering virtually every day of the war in the Pacific. A career naval officer, Ugaki was appointed Chief of Staff of the Combined Fleet on 10 August 1941. He served Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto until Yamamoto was killed and Ugaki was seriously wounded when both were shot down by an American fighter pilot over Bougainville Island on 18 April 1943. On 19 February 1945, Ugaki was entrusted with command of the Fifth Air Fleet on Kyushu. The diary gives the reader intimate glimpses of the Imperial Navy at war and of the mind-set of a ranking Japanese admiral. We follow Ugaki to a staff conference of the Combined Fleet and stand beside him aboard the flagship Yamato when he describes the sinking of her sister ship Musashi in the battle of Leyte Gulf. We overhear him plan the last-ditch kamikaze attacks against U. S. forces on Okinawa from a bunker on Kyushu. Not only is the diary full of strategy, tactics, combat operations, and domestic politics, it also contains critical and historically valuable postmortems of Japan's conduct of the war and is suggestive about the role of Emperor Hirohito. Its appraisals of the Americans, their methods, decisions, weaknesses, and strengths are revealing and intelligent. From February 1945, as commander, Fifth Air Fleet, Ugaki lived through the terrible days of the B-29 raids, Iwo Jima, Okinawa, and the atom bomb. The loss of the war was the end of his world. On 15 August 1945, he decided on a suicide mission against U.S. forces on Okinawa. Taking with him only his binoculars and the small sword Yamamoto had given him, Ugaki boarded the dive bomber Comet for his final flight.— Stock No. 6— £80.00

Wallach, Janet— Desert Queen : The Extraordinary Life of Gertrude Bell— London: Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1996— 6¼" x 9½". [xxv] + 419pp, maps, illustrations. Red cloth gilt in d/j, Fine. "Lawrence of Arabia is familiar to many, but few know about the remarkable woman without whom Lawrence could not have made his contribution to history. Now, in this splendid biography, the world can rediscover the extraordinary Gertrude Bell. Rear in the comfortable and privileged world of the "eminent Victorians", Gertrude Bell turned her back on convention and sought adventure in Arab lands. Traveling numerous times through the Syrian Desert and, at risk to her life, through the great Arabian desert of the Nejd -- the last European to do so before the eruption of World War I -- she wrote of her travels in widely acclaimed books. The trust she earned among the Arab sheikhs and chieftains made her indispensable when war broke out; recruited by British intelligence, she played a crucial role in obtaining the loyalty of Arab leaders, and her connections and information provided the brain for T. E.  Lawrence's military brawn. To cap off this amazing career, she participated in the postwar peace conferences as a major architect of the modern Middle East, helping to found the state of Iraq and installing its dashing monarch (Emir Feisal), to whom she was an intimate adviser. In her lifetime, she was known as the most powerful woman in the British Empire. In this masterful biography, Janet Wallach show us the woman behind these achievements -- a woman who loved to flirt with men, whose passionate love affairs ended unhappily, whose defiant independence was at odds in the confined and custom-bound England that she left behind. Too long eclipsed by Lawrence, Gertrude Bell emerges at last in her own right, as a vital player on the stage of modern history, and a woman whose life was both a heartbreaking story and a grand adventure." Gertrude Bell, who with T. E. Lawrence and Sir Percy Cox created the kingdom of Iraq, was an remarkable woman. To wealth and position, she added wit, intelligence and good looks. Despite the conventions of the 1890s she excelled in mountain climbing, in modern history at Oxford, and in writing both prose and verse. A visit to the Middle East roused what became an unquenchable love of the East. She studied Persian and Arabic and set off to explore to visit desert tribes, learn their customs, made maps and delved into history and archaeology. Traveller, historian, linguist, archaeologist, geographer and prodigious writer. She became the most famous contemporary English figure in Arabia until history was swamped by the legend of T. E. Lawrence. Bell & Lawrence both became involved with Middle East affairs i.e. Military Intelligence during the war and politics afterwards. Contains a chapter devoted to T. E. Lawrence with numerous references. Numerous references to Abdullah, Field Marshal Allenby, Auda Abu Tayi, Balfour, the Blunts, Winston Churchill, Clayton, Clemenceau, Sir Percy Cox, Charles M.

Wells, H. G. [Eedited by David C. Smith]— The Correspondence of H. G. Wells [4 Volumes] : Volume 1, 1880 - 1903 : Volume 2, 1904 - 1918 : Volume 3, 1919 - 1934 : Volume 4, 1935 - 1946— London: Pickering and Chatto, 1998— 6” x 9½”. Volume 1: [liii] + 458pp, frontis.; Volume 2: [vii] + 574pp, frontis.; Volume 3: [vii] + 563pp, frontis.; Volume 4: [vii] + 629pp, frontis. Red cloth gilt, no d/j [as issued], As New. This is the first major scholarly collection of the correspondence of H.G. Wells, one of the most prolific and significant writers of the twentieth century. The collection draws on over fifty archives and libraries throughout the world, many of them newly discovered, including the recently deposited papers of Wells's daughter by Amber Reeves. The edition contains 2,800 letters, fewer than 100 of which have previously been published. Letters currently available in other scholarly editions (such as those to George Bernard Shaw and Arnold Bennett) have been deliberately excluded, except where their inclusion seemed essential. A few of the letters are business letters to publishers, agents and secretaries, but the majority are much more personal. Wells's private correspondence extends from letters to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and Prime Ministers Winston Churchill and A. J. Balfour to persons such as 'Mark Benney', who wrote novels based on his life in the slums and his time in prison. There is rich correspondence too with his many female friends and lovers, among them Rebecca West, Eileen Power, Gertrude Stein, Marie Stopes, Lillah MacCarthy and Dorothy Richardson. A letter from Moura Budberg, with whom Wells had a long-standing passionate affair, which announces that she is pregnant by him and about to have an abortion, reveals how the great advocate of birth control was himself caught out. Wells also enjoyed a lively correspondence with the press, particularly during the two World Wars, and with various BBC officials and people who worked on his films. Some of his most powerful letters on the controversies of free love, socialism, birth control, the Fabian Society, and the nature of the curriculum of the new London University in the 1890s are included. Interspersed chronologically is a small selection of about 40 letters to Wells, where letters from him are not extant. Among these are letters from Ray Lankester, Joseph Conrad, C. G. Jung, Trotsky, Hedy Gatternigg (the woman who attempted suicide in Wells' flat) and J. C. Smuts.— Stock No. 6085— £160.00

White, Michael— Isaac Newton : The Last Sorcerer— London: Fourth Estate, 1997— 6¼” x 9½”. 402pp, illustrations. Black cloth gilt in d/j, As New. According to traditional accounts, Newton was the first modern scientist. As creator of the theory of gravity, calculus, modern theories of light and devisor of the three laws of mechanics, his methods are perceived as the genesis of modern science. Yet the traditional version of his life fails to tell the full story. How, for example, could Newton's apparent empiricism be married with his interest in alchemy and magic? What had inspired him in his discoveries? How did he reconcile his scientific discoveries with his religious faith? Who was this man who, historians tell us, remained a virgin all his life and who seemed to be an argumentative egomaniac on the one hand, and a kindly old man on the other?— Stock No. 5616— £24.00

His military career progressed unremarkably, and he was on the verge of retirement when the First World War broke out and transformed his life. By June 1915 Petain was the head of the French Second Army, and then earned the title 'Victor of Verdun'."— Stock No. 6171— £42.00

From the dust-jacket: "The making of the Oxford English Dictionary was a monumental fifty-year task requiring the assistance of thousands of volunteers. One of the keenest was a certain W. C. Minor, who astonished and dismayed everyone by declining to come to Oxford to receive his congratulations until, reputedly, his refusals eventually prompted the Dictionary's editor, James Murray, to travel down to Crowthorne, in Berkshire to meet him. What he found was utterly shocking. Minor was a millionaire American Civil War surgeon turned lunatic, imprisioned in Broadmoor Asylum for murder, who had dedicated his cell-bound life to work on the English Language.

Yardley, Michael— Backing Into the Limelight : A Biography of T. E. Lawrence— London: Harrap Limited, 1985— 6¼" x 9½". 267pp, illustrations, maps. Black cloth gilt in d/j, Fine. "T. E. Lawrence lies buried in a pyramid of half-truths. He died in 1935, having changed his name by deed poll to T. E. Shaw, but the legend of Lawrence of Arabia lived on. The fiction and the facts of his extraordinary life have been fused into one of the most intriguing and widely publicized stories of the 20th century. Controversy has always been a feature of the Lawrence phenomenon -- he has been hailed as a sensitive genius drawn into the mayhem of war and denounced as a neurotic fraud without any real affection for the Arabs, an imperialist agent who own machinations and literary obsession led to a mental breakdown. However, in spite of the de-bunkers, the legend has adapted and survived. Fifty years after his death, Lawrence of Arabia is still news. Michael Yardley sets out to peel away the disinformation, distorted memories and pure fantasy from the facts. He has travelled all over the world, from the Middle East to Texas and even Hollywood, in his search for accurate source material and, despite many problems, has been able to uncover important new facts about Lawrence. Michael Yardley is concerned not only with Lawrence's reputation, but with its nature; not only with reality but with the media's perception and presentation of it. The media's portrayal of Lawrence's life has certainly been misleading. By examining the origin and development of Lawrence as a media hero, it may be possible to observe how, and why, such distortion took place. One must recognize that it began, in his case, by deliberate manipulation of the media, in those days mainly the Press. He became one of the first victims of the modern media machine and the story is told in full as to how the legend developed and snowballed. The enduring fascination of Lawrence's story is not surprising, but for Michael Yardley, the most interesting thing about Lawrence is not what he was, but how he was perceived." The author's interest with Lawrence began when he was stationed at Camp Bovington, Dorset where TE also served and had his nearby Clouds Hill cottage.— Stock No. 3178— £40.00
