Item Description: Pen Press Publishers. Brighton. (1973) 2006 paperback edition. 8vo paperback (145 x 209mm). Pp134. B/w illustrations by Len Gurd. Very good (unread) paperback copy. "This fascinating book traces the life story of a carp from conception until it reaches record size, recounting the numerous adventures and discoveries made by the fish as it moves round the dark, quiet lake in which it lives. Running parallel with the carp's development is the story of a young angler, who watched the exciting spawning of the carp, and who spends much of his time observing and trying to catch Cypry, the shoal leader conceived that day. The history of the lake is carefully woven into the story, along with detailed descriptions of the activities of many other creatures which exist in and around the beautiful stretch of water. The author has been a carp angler for 40 years, has fished more than 100 carp lakes and caught 3000 carp to 30lbs. His thousands of hours fishing for the species all over the country have given him a unique opportunity for nature observations, and he has written four other books on carp and carp fishing.This book, however, is not primarily about fishing, but is a story of the countryside and its wild inhabitants, in all moods and weathers. It makes absorbing reading for lovers of nature and wild creatures whether they are anglers or not.". Bookseller Inventory # 35081

She worked in falconry and raptor conservation for many years before becoming a historian of science. But when her father dies and she is knocked sideways by grief, she becomes obsessed with the idea of training her own goshawk. she collects a female gos from a Scottish quayside and takes her home to Cambridge. Then she fills the freezer with hawk food and unplugs her phone, ready to embark on the difficult, ancient business of manning and training the hawk." "To train a hawk you must watch it like a hawk, and so gain the ability to predict what it will do next. Eventually you don't see the hawk's body language at all. You seem to feel what it feels. The hawk's apprehension becomes your own. As the days passed and I put myself in the hawk's wild mind to tame her, my humanity was burning away.". Bookseller Inventory # 34831

Item Description: Hodder & Stoughton. London. 2007 1st edition. 4to (198 x 252mm). Pp352. Colour photographs throughout, decorative end-papers, pictorial boards. Very good in dust-wrapper. The authors have travelled the world to see how native people manage to live on just what nature provides. .In this book and the BBC TV series it inspired, [they travel] back ten thousand years to a time before farming to learn how our ancestors found, prepared and cooked their food". Introductory chapters discuss what is known about food gathering and preparation in the British Mesolithic (Middle Stone Age) as well as looking at modern hunter-gatherers in other countries. The rest of the book is devoted to a species-by-species treatment of fish, shellfish, fungi, plants, fruit and animals which can be eaten. This seems to include most things, and a large part of the authors' research addresses ways of preparing otherwise inedible plants, fruit and roots to make them fit for consumption. Co-author Professor Gordon Hillman is one of the foremost experts in this subject, having worked in the field, researched and written since 1959. He is currently Visiting Professor of Archaeobotany (palaeoethnobotany) at University College London's Institute of Archaeology. Bookseller Inventory # 18968
