Pearman, Hugh; Whalley, Andrew
The Eden Project is the largest plant enclosure in the world. Its biomes have captured imaginations worldwide and become the visual trademark of a destination that attracted two million visitors in its first year of opening. The biomes are the work of Nicholas Grimshaw & Partners, a practice with an international portfolio including the Waterloo International Terminal and Berlin Stock Exchange. The practice has won over 100 architectural awards for its projects, which are characterized by structural legibility and integrity. This book tells the story of Eden's conception, design and construction and looks to the future of this ever-evolving project. Its carefully chosen photographs and drawings reveal the virtuosity and sublime beauty of the structures, while an authoritative essay places them in the distinguished tradition of the glasshouse. Head and tail of spine and D/J spine slightly bumped. Slight dent to front D/J. Corners of D/J slightly rubbed.119pp.

Walker, David P. Staff Sergeant
This book tells a one-of-a-kind story of resilience and determination in the Vietnam War. It is written in a no-holds-barred, from-the-gut style. In January 1968, barely a month after arriving in Vietnam as part of an elite long range patrol (LRP) team, Dave Walker received a debilitating shrapnel wound to his eye. Medically discharged and sent home, Walker - now missing an eye - manoeuvred his way back into the army and back to Vietnam in 1970. Battle-hardened, aggressive, and courageous, he served another eighteen months with the best of the best, conducting patrols and special operations in the Central Highlands. 217pp. N.B. Top right corner of front cover slightly creased.

Wills, John E.
This work is a survey of the world on the threshold of modernity and a sweeping narrative of different cultures being drawn together by the pull of trade and violence: a world where spices, silver and slaves made fortunes and ruined lives. The reader is taken on a journey around the world, through Russia, where Tsar Peter is about to launch a coup that will change his country's history forever; to the splendid court of the Sun King in France; to Mexico; to the Sonora desert of North America, where a Jesuit priest and his tribe of Pima Indian converts are about to discover California; to Manila, Jamaica, Australia, South Africa, Siam and to England, where a Dutch king lands in Dorset to begin the Glorious Revolution and fashion the state under which we still live. 330pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Fading to spine and edges to D/J.
