Twyman, Michael
In the last few decades lithography has become the major book production process, but its versatility and potential for short-run, "do it yourself" publishing were first exploited early in the 19th century. The arrival of desk top publishing has stimulated an interest in this once neglected, but now very relevant, area of printing history, and Twyman's meticulous research presents the reader with a minute account of the subject. He describes the design and production of a wide range of publications, from a broad variety of sources, for whom lithography promised a flexibility unobtainable from letterpress. However, some of his most interesting accounts and demonstrations are of hopes disappointed and a return to letterpress. This text is a study of the potential of lithography for "do it yourself" publication in the 19th century by the military (manuals), antiquarians (catalogues), by those needing special types (Champollion on hieroglyphs, Pitman on shorthand) and by publishers mixing text with illustration and tables. There were a great variety of users whose output is later mirrored in the "camera ready" books of the 1960s and 1970s. 374pp. N.B. Very very slight fading to top edge of boards and spine.

Jobert,Marc
Often, the success of court actions depends upon the effectiveness of provisional remedies, conservatory measures or summary judgments taken before or in lieu of the main proceedings. A good decision, obtained after years of effort, is of no use if it cannot be enforced because the debtor's assets have disappeared. This text provides a guide through the web of preliminary actions that can be taken in order to ensure the successful seizing of assets. This practical guide answers questions such as: what is a Mareva Injunction and how can it be used effectively?; what is a refere, in France, Belgium and several other countries, and how can it save the plaintiff years of litigation?; and how can assets be seized in Hong Kong on the basis of a German judgment concerning an Australian living in Turkey? Within each country, each topic is clarified using a comprehensive example, which allows the reader to see the theory in action. "Summary Proceedings" covers the following countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Cameroon, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, The Netherlands, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Korea, Luxembourg, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland, Tunisia, Turkey and the USA. 411pp.

Humphries, Christopher
This is a book that answers all the ancient philosophical questions: about the good, the right, the true, the nature of mind and soul, divinity, immortality, and free will. It does so not by windy argument, but by the discoveries of the forbidden sciences created by Toynbee, William James, C G Jung, Dr Humphrey, and many others. For every question, there is some realm of experience which can provide an answer, using the essence of scientific method: reproducibility and ruling out the alternatives. If you want to know the solution to the classical problem of evil, don't ask a theologian; ask a mystic, one who has experienced cosmic consciousness, and has seen the pattern that runs through all things. These new sciences are forbidden in the universities, but they flourish, nonetheless, including the study of UFOs. Are they real? Why don't they make contact? How is it possible to jump hundreds of light years in an instant? If ETs are at all common, why didn't they colonise the Earth? The answers to these questions provide the unifying theme of this book, our own journey to the stars by levitation and teleportation. We take our first step to those powers by attaining spiritual maturity. We begin our spiritual evolution by learning the answers to the perennial philosophical questions. If it seems impossible to do all this in 280 pages, then read carefully, for Dr H does not waste words or repeat himself. If you think it impossible in any number of pages, read his chapter on 'The Function of Philosophy'. Dr H knows what that is, while those who scoff are often mere sophists or professional sceptics. 280pp.
