Everyman for Himself, Bainbridge, Beryl
1 Bainbridge, Beryl Everyman for Himself
UK Duckworth 1996 Hardcover Excellent Very Good 22.5cm 
224 perfect white pp hold the plot of this novel & if after reading you're inclined to a more detailed look at the ship herself we have several books along those lines & even a "Titanic Lifeboat Crew" t-shirt! review >>> This was simply brilliant. The writing was so powerful I had tears in my eys at the end. I thought the plot was very clever. Frequently (but not too frequently) it foreshadowed the end, but in a subtle and poignant way. The characters were also very well described, but I think it was the way that she structured the plot that really made this stand out for me.

6 Fothergill, Jessie Borderland: A Country-Town Chronicle
London Richard Bentley and Son 1887 Hardcover Good None issued 19cm 
Borderland: A Country-Town Chronicle - 485pp + 2pg catalogue, over 500g, blind stamped decorative cloth, gilt titling on the spine, corners have wear but not too bad. Jessie Fothergill, author of The First Violin, was a novelist perhaps of the quality of Gaskell or George Eliot. Her first two novels did not sell but her third novel, The First Violin was very popular and made Fothergill's name. The story was written in Dusseldorf by Fothergill and it tells the story of an English girl who rejects the attentions of the rich farmer for the strange attractions of a German. The story was rejected by two publishers because it dealt with an affair by a married woman. The publishers thought this would not be well received but they were mistaken as considerable sales continued not only in Britain but also in the United States. The style of her novels is well summed up by Linda Gardiner in her 1892 Novel Review article: What attracted her were the problems of life, both in human beings themselves and in their relation to their environment, and very few of her leading characters can be truthfully described as amiable or genial personages. The most prominent of them are battling, as human beings are apt to do, with their own hearts and with fate, and inclined to rebellious independence and bitterness of spirit. This gives a somewhat gloomy and aggressive tone to her stories, most conspicuous, perhaps, in Healey and Borderland. But the same qualities which are answerable for this earnestness, intensity, and individuality make the reader feel that time spent over Miss Fothergill’s novels has not been misspent or given in vain, and secure for her an honourable place among the novelists of the Victorian era.

7 Fox, Robin Lane Travelling Heroes Greeks and Their Myths in the Epic Age of Homer
UK Penguin 2009 Papeback Very Good None Issued 19.5cm 
504 densely packed pp plus index, remainder mark at bottom. This remarkable and original book proposes a new way of thinking about the Greeks and their myths in the age of the great Homeric hymns. It combines a lifetime's familiarity with Greek literature and history with the latest archeological discoveries and the author's own journeys to the main sites in the story to describe how particular Greeks of the eighth century BC travelled east and west around the Mediterranean, and how their extraordinary journeys shaped their ideas of their gods and heroes. It gathers together stories and echoes from many different ancient cultures, not just the Greek - Assyria, Egypt, the Phoenician traders - and ranges from Mesopotamia to the Rio Tinto at Huelva in modern Portugal. Book in great order.

9 Hopkins, Andrea The Book of Guinevere
USA Saraband 1996 Hardcover Very Good Very Good 23 Cm 
This elegant anthology of the poetry and prose, literature and legend surrounding Guinevere of Camelot looks at the enigmatic figure who has been variously seen as scholar, seductress, warrior, and gentle beauty. Richly illustrated in color with medieval manuscripts and pre-Raphaelite masterpieces, the book explores Guinevere's roles -- as educated scribe to the court, devoted wife of King Arthur, and lover of Sir Lancelot -- through the writings of admirers and detractors alike. An illuminating introduction examines the contradictory traditions and sources for Guinevere's story and explains how many strands were blended by medieval writers into the complex legend we are most familiar with today. review >> A very interesting study of the lady of Arthurian legend. A nice piece of non-fiction dealing with fiction. Loved the illustrations also. 96 crisp pp, illus endpapers, just under 500g to post.

Gone to Earth, Webb, Mary
18 Webb, Mary Gone to Earth
UK Penguin 1985 Papeback Excellent None issued 18cm 
A very clean copy of this facsimile edition issued as part of a boxed commemorative set of Penguins with 284 nicely presented pp & covers. "Gone to Earth" is the story of a free-spirited country lass, who is loved both by the wicked squire and the altruistic minister. Gone To Earth - Written in 1917, when all three of Mary Webb’s younger brothers were serving in the trenches of the Western Front, Gone to Earth denounces the callous inhumanity of “civilized” man. Webb’s second novel is a work of high imagination that reflects her horror at the slaughter of young soldiers, yet she never mentions the war that was devastating Europe at the time. Webb clothes her message in the setting and characters she knows best, Shropshire, and translates her anguish and compassion into poetic images. The title of the book is taken from the hunter’s cry, Gone to Earth! when the fox has fled into its underground den. Webb cries out through this allegorical story: why do men, seeing something innocent and beautiful, seek to destroy it? In 1917 Rebecca West proclaimed Gone to Earth as Novel of the Year. Add our very nice copy to your shelves & decide for yourself.
