De Saint Jorre, John
Slight bump to bottom of spine and d/j. This book tells the story of the Olympia Press and of Maurice Girodias, "Pornographer with heart", "Lenin of the Sexual Revolution" and publisher of books of exceptional quality which no-one else dared to handle. Titles such as: Henry Miller's "Tropic of Cancer" and "Tropic of Capricorn"; Vladimir Nabokov's "Lolita"; William Burrough's "THe Naked Lunch"; J.P. Donleavy"s "The Ginger Man"; and Terry Southern's "Candy". The text also includes an interview with the pseudonymous author of the clandestine bestseller, "The Story of Q". The fact that almost all of these publications led to flamboyant disputes, public rows, legal actions and literary feuds of unparalleled ferocity, only testifies to the fascination of Girodias's escapades. This account reveals an extraordinary egoist and a world on the point of change towards the sexual liberation of the 60s.332pp.

Watt,Ronnie and De Kock,Servaas
Since the introduction of koi in the 1970s, these graceful and dignified 'living jewels' have become the hobby -- or obsession -- of many South Africans, and the koi shows at which fanciers and breeders show off their biggest and most beautiful specimens, some of them almost beyond price, draw crowds of admiring and envious spectators. This book contains virtually everything the koi-keeper needs to know and includes top quality photography of all the koi varieties, including recent All-Japan champions and the best of South Africa's own koi.

Barnes, Ruth; Branfoot, Crispin
This book explores the role of pilgrimage in Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and the religions that developed in India. It was written to coincide with an exhibition at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford (2006), but it is not a catalogue of the display. It is intended to be read independently, as it explores attitudes to pilgrimage in the different religions; it also includes accounts of individual pilgrimage, both historical and contemporary. Common themes emerge, regardless of religious affiliation. The departure from daily life is part of all pilgrimages. Along the way, the journey may lead past lesser shrines and sacred landscapes. The visit to the central shrine, the final goal of the journey, culminates in an intense spiritual experience. Reliquaries and souvenirs many help to hold on to this moment and transfer its power back into everyday life. Pilgrimage survives as an important aspect of religious awareness and identification to this day. 132pp.
