alphabetically by author

 

 

 

Listed below is my current stock in this subject, sorted in alphabetical order, by author. Please note that it is difficult to categorize some titles, which overlap different subjects; in these cases, the easiest procedure would be use the search box, which covers my entire stock. However, if searching for a particular title on this page only, the simplest method is to use "Control-F" to bring up the "Find" dialogue on screen. I have described the books as accurately as possible but will of course accept returns if a particular item is inadvertently not as described.

15041     Jacobs, Michael Ghost Train Through The Andes : On My Grandfather's Trail in Chile and Bolivia London: John Murray, 2006     6” x 9½”. [xxiii] + 309pp, maps, illustrations. Red cloth gilt in a scuffed and rubbed d/j, otherwise Near Fine. It was not until long after his grandmother, Sophie, had  died, that Michael Jacobs was eventually permitted to read the lengthy and passionate letters that his grandfather Bethel had written her from nine thousand miles  away. In these letters, Jacobs discovered a remarkable story of hardship, deprivation and enduring love. His grandfather's work on the railway through the Andes  was exhausting and desperately lonely. He had little in common with his fellow workers and became consumed by a mounting despondency, from which only his  love for Sophie could save him. But, as the months and years of separation passed, the world in which Sophie was blossoming appeared more and more remote  from his own. Michael Jacobs' journey back through time takes him from a rain-swept Hull churchyard to desolate Antofagasta in Chile and to the former silver  capital of Potosi. Climbing through ghostly, lunar-like scenery towards the snow-capped summits of the Andes, he follows the route of his grandfather's railway -  across giant rocky plateaux, through terrifyingly steep gorges and valleys of tropical lushness, and past grim mining townships buffeted by winds, rain and snow - to  reveal an extraordinary love story.         £15.00  Travel

15173     Shah, Tahir         In Search of King Solomon's Mines           London: John Murray, 2002        6" x 9½". 240pp, illustrations, map. Red cloth in d/j, As New. King Solomon, the Bible's wisest king, also possessed extraordinary wealth. He built a temple at Jerusalem  that was said to be more fabulous than any other landmark in the ancient world, heavily adorned with gold from Ophir. The precise location of this legendary land has  been one of history's great unsolved mysteries. Long before Rider Haggard's classic adventure novel King Solomon's Mines produced a fresh outbreak of gold fever,  explorers, scientists and theologians had scoured the world for the source of the king's astonishing wealth. Tahir Shah takes up the quest, using as his leads a mixture of  texts including the Septuagint, the earliest form of the Bible, as well as geological, geographical and folkloric sources. Time and again the evidence points towards  Ethiopia, the ancient kingdom in the horn of Africa whose imperial family claims descent from Menelik, the son born to Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. Tahir Shah's  trail takes him to a remote cliff-face monastery where the monks pull visitors up on a leather rope, to the ruined castles of Gondar, and to the churches of Lalibela, hewn  from solid rock. In the south, he discovers an enormous illegal gold mine where thousands of men, women and children dig with their hands. But the hardest leg of the  journey is to the accursed mountain of Tullu Wallel, where legend says there lies an ancient shaft, once the entrance of King Solomon's mines.          £20.00  Travel
