Its long tradition of excellence in musical training and examining places it among the leading music schools of the world.

Amply illustrated, with over forty photographs dating back to the school's first years, this book is an unvarnished account of its controversial leaders, its successes and failures, its encounters with the musical and academic world, and its passions. In this smoothly paced narrative, your favourite musicians, teachers, and examiners will come to life to revive your memories. 288pp.

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.

Allen, Rodney
The French Revolution of 1789 did not set out to end the French monarchy. It aimed to create liberal constitutional government, with the king continuing to be responsible for national administration. This objective was believed to have been attained by the establishment of the Constitution of September 1791. However, radicals were not satisfied and France's declaration of war against Austria in April 1792 enhanced fears of counter-revolution led by aristocratic emigre forces based in Coblenz. Although the king tried to distance himself from the aristocratic faction, radical politicians agitated increasingly against the monarchy. On the fateful day of the 10th August 1792, Louis XVI was abandoned by the constitutionalists, and only the Swiss Guards, reacting autonomously to an impossible situation, made a real effort to protect him. The chain of events following the fall of the king led to the September Massacres and, for two years, a regime of growing political terror led to hundreds of thousands perishing as a result of the guillotine, mass executions and civil war. Of longer-term consequence was the undermining of political legitimacy in France which established a fertile ground for political upheaval, which may be argued to have continued as far as the student rebellion of 1968. The high drama of the crucial 24 hours in Paris from the afternoon of 9th August offers the unity of time and place of classical tragedy. The author describes in detail what happened, through a careful analysis of eye-witness accounts, official minutes of institutions and journalists' reports. The stories of how a number of witnesses escaped death and succeeded in leaving France give added human interest. 248pp.

Barlee, N. L.
The largest and one of the most fascinating counties in the state. Here the footloose and curious may wander past long forgotten towns and abandoned town sites with colourful names, or range through the sweeping desert lands into the remote high country. There is much to hold the passer by; legends of hidden gold and long lost mines, several of them still searched for by close-mouthed treasure hunters and others intrigued by the age old quest for gold. And some of those historic towns of yesterday, places like Wauconda, Nighthawk and old Molson, still stand, silent monuments to the past and little changed in almost a hundred years. Walk through the brooding recesses of McLauhlin's Canyon and along the banks of rivers with lyrical Indian manes, and you still stalk the West of the 19th Century - and THAT'S Okanogan County. 223pp. N.B. Slight crease to spine edge of front cover.
