Feb 1955 issue, maybe 80 or so pp (numbering seems to run from earlier issues & there's a spinkle of romans for good measure.

4 Adams, Douglas The Salmon of Doubt Hitchhiking the Galaxy One Last Time
UK Macmillan 2002 Hardcover Excellent Excellent 24.5cm 
The Salmon of Doubt: Hitchhiking the Galaxy One Last Time is a posthumous collection of previously published and unpublished material by Douglas Adams. It consists largely of essays about technology and life experiences, but its major selling point is the inclusion of the incomplete novel on which Adams was working at the time of his death, The Salmon of Doubt (from which the collection gets its title, a reference to the Celtic myth of the Salmon of Wisdom). 299pp

Quinnell has once again used his worldwide experience to bring his characters to vibrant life as the "Black Horn" takes the reader from survival in the African bush to vicious, terrifying warfare in the backstreets of Hong Kong. "Black Horn" is a towering story of violence, vengeance and of a love born of danger and tenderness. review >>> OH MY GOD...why???? This book has a horrible tragedy in it.

11 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.

Young Adolph, Bainbridge, Beryl
12 Bainbridge, Beryl Young Adolph
London Duckworth 2000 Hardcover Fine Fine 20.5cm 
Book pristine, less than 500g for post. The Hitler in this book is a lazy, easily irritated, self-centered dreamer with a fondness for sleeping and plagued by delusions of bearded men chasing him. His paranoia is a motivating factor in everything he does here. We see through Hitler’s eyes a number of items that would later be associated with Hitler - for tattooing numbers on people in a hostel to identify them to how easy it is for one civil servant to boss around a lot of people provided he has the authority to growing a moustache, it’s all here.Hitler is already an anti-semite and a racist before the start of this story and one can assume the rest f the blanks in Hitler’s character will be filled in with his experiences in World War I.

Our Horses in Egypt, Belben, Rosalind
18 Belben, Rosalind Our Horses in Egypt
UK Chatto & Windus 2007 Hardcover Excellent Excellent 22.5cm 
304pp plus maps at end, just under 500g, book in great shape. Here's the synopsis > Philomena, fat and lazy when she is requisitioned from an English field at the start of the First World War, sails for Egypt with the territorial regiment, the Dorset Yeomanry. She serves faithfully, charging the dervishes in the Western Desert and enduring the privations of Allenby's great campaign in Palestine. She recovers from wounds to swelter through a summer in the Jordan Valley. She takes part in the triumphant advance on Damascus - only to be sold off in Cairo among the 22,000 horses left behind by the War Office after the Armistice. By 1921, the forceful Griselda Romney, a war widow, has discovered that her old hunter, Philomena, could be still alive. With her six-year-old daughter, and of course Nanny, Mrs Romney sets out to Egypt, to find Philomena and to rescue her.... Our Horses in Egypt depicts the work of a troop-horse in the Army - and of exotic Cairo, in political unrest - as meticulously and exuberantly as Hound Music recreated the milieu of Edwardian fox-hunting. review >>> "A remarkable work of literature... If literary prizes were awarded (as they still, occasionally, are), on pure excellence of writing, Our Horses in Egypt would be sure to make Rosalind Belben a late-blooming household name" (Jane Shilling Sunday Telegraph ) and review >> Her writing is brave and funny and bleak, cold-eyed and deeply feeling. The voices she gives to the sad, the dispossessed, the resigned (animal and human) characters are unforgettable. If only the Booker jury would stop drooling over the usual suspects and give credit where it is genuinely deserved.
