13 Duncan, Roger F Dorothy Elizabeth : Building a Traditional Wooden Schooner
NY W. W. Norton & Company 200 Hardcover Excellent Good 22cm 
From the dust jacket: "This is the story of Dorothy Elizabeth, a 28-foot schooner. Particularly, it is the story of why to build a traditional wooden sailing vessel that relies on age-old methods and materials, yet also embraces newfangled technologies. But mostly it is the story of the people--the score of craftsmen and craftswomen, friends, and family--who give their skill, advice, support, and time to turn Dorothy Elizabeth from an idea into a graceful, seaworthy reality. You will meet Ralph Stanley of Southwest Harbor, Maine, one of the world's great designers and builders of traditional wooden boats, and a disarmingly plainspoken master craftsmen in the maritime Maine tradition. You will meet Mary Chandler Duncan, a poet and the author's wife, soul mate, and first mate. You will meet Nat Wilson, sail maker, who took time out from building topsails for the USS Constitution to build sails for Dorothy Elizabeth. You will meet Frank Luke, neighbor, boatyard owner, all-around helper, and the man who launched Dorothy Elizabeth. And you will meet many other singular people up and down the coast from Portland, Maine, to Lunnenberg, Nova Scotia and beyond, drawn together by the building of a boat. 240 pages, slight mark on dj

15 Flint, Tom Anatomy for the artist: The dynamics of the human Form
UK Arcturus 2002 Cardcover Excellent/Very Good None issued 30cm 
208 crisp pp & 900g packed for post. Everyone understands that the internal structure of the body affects shape, posture and movement. Without an understanding of what is hidden from view, the artist cannot express the physical attributes and create a drawing that brings character truly to life. What makes this study of anatomy unique is that it focuses on visual knowledge, appealing to the methods through which artists really understand and appreciate information. There's no unnecessary medical jargon, only stunning yet accurate artwork, showing the artist what he needs to know in order to bring the human form to life. review >> this reference book is immensely helpful, and I'd be surprised if even experienced artists didn't find it very useful. It doesn't just offer diagrams showing bone structure and musculature.

17 H. Easom Smith Bantams for Everyone
UK Saiga Publishing Co 1979 Hardcover Excellent Excellent 23.5cm 
184 clean white well-bound pp incl. index. very good dj, Illustrated throughout. Here's an extract of Mr Easom Smith's notes re judging > The wording of the Standards is lengthy and appears to be very complicated. So much so that many people never read through to the end. If the Standards were carefully digested, it would be found that the scale of points makes greatest allowance for facial merit and type, allied with characteristic carriage. Colour does not rank so very highly, after all. Thus it is impossible for a superbly coloured bantam to win the first prize if it is deficient in other details. But it is possible for a bird of fair average colour to win if it has the best of type and head points. Once this essential is grasped, the breed immediately appeals to the man who likes diminutive, cocky pieces of beauty in his bantam pens and does not much care whether they lay eggs except when he wants to reproduce their like in springtime. Enoy a peruse of this book whilst sipping a dry white & maybe the soundtrack of "Chicken Run" in the background. 184pp in jolly nice order by one of the foremost experts on exhibition poultry, this is a book for those who love their poultry. Topics relating to bantams include housing systems, accommodation to aid prizewinning, feeding methods under modern conditions, breeding pens, conditioning birds, washing, and grooming.
