Item Description: Ordnance Survey / Cassini. Southampton, Hampshire. (1903) 2007 1st edition thus. Folding map in green-blue card covers. This map includes the Elan Valley, Builth Wells, Devil's Bridge, Llangurig, Llandrindod Wells, Llanwrtyd Wells and Rhayader. Fine new copy. The Cassini Revised New Series provides a fascinating snapshot of the human geography of Britain at the turn of the twentieth century. These maps are taken from the Ordnance Survey One-Inch 'Revised New Series'sheets, surveyed between 1900 and 1903. The original series of maps were 1" to the mile, and surveyed on a grid different from that employed today. In this new series, however, the 1" maps have been reprojected onto the OS National Grid so that all the edges match up. This makes the whole country into one single sheet from which positions can be read off in National Grid numbers. This single sheet has been redivided, creating new sheets each corresponding precisely to a current Landranger map. The scale is now larger, at 1:50,000. This new series is uniquely useful for exploring the land and accurately pin-pointing where things are, or used to be. Equally useful for comparisons with current maps on the kitchen table. Much to be recommended. (Previous price £6.99). Bookseller Inventory # 40362

"The Cassini Old Series provides a fascinating snapshot of the human geography of Britain in the mid-19th century. These maps are taken from the Ordnance Survey One-Inch 'Old Series' sheets, surveyed between 1791 and1874 and published - with many revisions and new editions - between 1805 and 1874." The original series of maps were 1" to the mile, and surveyed on a grid different from that employed today. Many of the sheets were printed with four separate copper plates each from separate surveys, the edges of which usually did not quite match. Reprints of all these sheets have been available in recent times. In this new series, however, the 1" maps have been reprojected onto the OS National Grid so that all the edges match up. This makes the whole country into one single sheet from which positions can be read off in National Grid numbers.

Item Description: Usborne Publishing. London. 1978 1st edition. 12mo paperback (115 x 180mm). Pp64. Colour and b/w illustrations by Annabel Milne, Peter Stebbing, Christine Howes and Joyce Bee. Well used copy. Ticks to several boxes of scorecard. Good only. A basic but good and well illustrated guide to the fresh- and salt-water fish of Britain and Europe aimed primarily at children. "The description next to each illustration tells you about the fish - where it lives, what it eats, where it lays its eggs. It also tells you the normal maximum length of an adult fish measured from head to tail." Also has short sections on shape and movement, mouths and feeding, defence, camouflage, the life cycle of eels, making a stickleback aquarium and making fish prints. A scorecard at the end of the book allows the enthusiastic young fish spotter to keep track of which species they have spotted and score themselves based on rarity of said species. Well worth throwing a copy into the beach bag for a day's rockpooling. The book was published as part of Usborne's Spotter's Guides series which included books on rocks and minerals, garden flowers, birds, butterflies, wild flowers, trees and the seashore.

Green buckram, gilt fish motif to upper board, spine titled in gilt on dark green printed spine-label. Ex-library copy with numerous faults. Lacks half-title page but a good working copy in a chipped dust-wrapper. "This book is the first of its kind to be written for the British fish industry. It has been prepared specially for readers having practical knowledge of fish handling and processing, but with little or no scientific training. .The subject matter is broadly divided into two main parts. Chapters two to eleven deal with the technology of the main methods of preservation, namely chilling, freezing, smoking, drying, salting and canning, and with the manufacture of fish meal and oil; good handling practice, both at sea and on shore from the catcher to the retailer, is described in detail. Chapters twelve to sixteen explain some of the basic scientific principles involved in fish technology, and include sufficient biology, chemistry and physics as they relate to fish to enable the reader to follow the reasoning elsewhere in the text." Very detailed and well worth a read for anyone with more than a passing interest in the processing of small to medium quantities of fish. Bookseller Inventory # 40387

Item Description: Frank Graham (Publishers). Newcastle-upon-Tyne. (1862) 1974 facsimile edition. 8vo (142 x 232mm). Pp[iv]xx,344. B/w wood engravings by Thomas Bewick. Blue boards, spine titled in gilt. Very good in slightly used and faded, price-clipped dust-wrapper. "Embellished by numerous wood engravings, designed and engraved by the author for a work on British fishes, and never before published." A facsimile reprint of the 1862 first edition. Bewick's memoirs were apparently finished on the 1st of November, 1828, seven days before his death. They were not published, however, until 1862. Frank Graham, in his introduction to this volume, suggests that this was due to "the religious and political views of Bewick which his daughter and others of his contemporaries disliked." Others have suggested that its delayed publication was due to it being "so replete with personal allusions that it could not see the light of day during the lifetime of his contemporaries." The 1862 edition was published by Longman, Green, Longman, and Roberts after some editing by Jane Bewick who also added several additional woodcuts to Thomas Bewick's original manuscript.

A Keith Calder mystery. "In Adverse Report, Hammond adds a new twist to the series - this time, the story is told by a bemused Londoner whom meets Calder, and a host of other local characters, when they all become embroiled in a Highland whodunit. When Englishman Simon Parbitter journeys to Scotland to view a piece of property he has inherited from a recently deceased relative, he learn that the 'shooting accident' that killed his uncle may not have been quite so accidental. Parbitter turns to Keith Calder for help in investigating the incident; but when Calder himself is injured in another such mishap, he and Parbitter are forced to throw themselves into a full-fledged hunt for the killer. What follows is a taut, complex mystery, a true test of Keith Calder's mental resources.". Bookseller Inventory # 40411
