de Bruyn, Gerd
This work contains text in English and German. In the summer 1978, the cover of the magazine "Bauwelt" showed a photograph of an unusual building. It was tersely introduced to readers as a 'private house with office in Bad Nauheim', but it was immediately obvious that this was a built manifesto. What appeared was a strictly symmetrically articulated, steeply rising facade, emanating dignity and composure. It also seemed able to manage without windows, which further enhanced its austere elegance. And then there were the strikingly slender, sharp-angled wall elements, which seemed captivatingly graceful, or even delicate and fragile - as though folded from paper. The fact is that, long before Gilles Deleuze had cast his spell on a new generation of aesthetically ambitious architects, Johannes Peter Holzinger was putting his folding skills into practice as a matter of course. 59pp.

Streicher, Lauren F.
Every year, more than 500,000 women undergo hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) to treat fibroids, endometriosis, prolapse, and other disorders. This up-to-date guide covers the latest innovations in hysterectomy (such as laparoscopic methods that allow faster recovery), as well as uterine artery ablation and other cutting-edge alternative treatments that preserve the uterus. In clear, conversational language, Dr Lauren Streicher discusses everything a woman needs to know to make informed choices about this often-controversial subject, including: emotions and sex after surgery, hormone replacement, choosing a surgeon, deciding whether to remove the ovaries or cervix, and much more. 428pp.

Baird,David M.
Autumn leaves dry in the sun, curling to make endless abstract patterns of curved surfaces and shadows. Or are they leaves? A closer look with Dr David M Baird reveals not leaves but layers of mud, which have shrunk into leaf-like shapes as they dried. Baird's amazing photographs show that intriguing patterns and textures are all around us. In "Beauty in the Rocks" the esteemed geologist, writer and poet takes readers on a photographic journey around the globe, finding beauty and form in settings as exotic as the Galapagos and as close to home as Yoho National Park. His intense, artistic images and accompanying text give mood and meaning to the changing earth and encourage readers to observe carefully the world around them, recognise what they see and understand how it came to be. From the hexagonal 'organ pipe' patterns in Northern Ireland's Giant's Causeway to the 'hoodoos' in Yoho National Park to the wrinkled surface skin of cooled liquid lava on James Island in the Galapagos, the wonders captured in this book will engage and enlighten anyone with an interest in the natural world. 144pp.

Gill, C. S.
This book provides a consolidated, comprehensive and yet accessible list of terms and acronyms that are used regularly in agriculture and with all the associated problems of usage of originally discrete technical terms. The book offers an up-to-date list of terms currently in use in biotechnology, genetic engineering and closely allied fields. It is intended to provide a convenient reference source for researchers, students and technicians. The work has been prepared in response to an expressed need. The terms included have been selected by examination of books, dictionaries, journals and abstracts dealing entirely or in part with culture or allied fields. The work is designed to give readers direct insight into the error sources occurring in their profession, especially those resulting from a poor understanding of the subject matter and the usage of particular terms to designate different concepts in different agriculture and plant engineering. Carefully reviewed for clarity, completeness, and accuracy, the book offers a standard of excellence unmatched by any similar publication. 426pp. N.B. Edges and corners of boards, spine and D/J bumped. Small closed tear to bottom edge of front D/J.

Herman, John
Sir Eric Phipps was British Ambassador in Berlin (1933-37) and at Paris (1937-39) - two key ambassadorships which spanned the crucial period between Hitler's advent to power and the outbreak of the Second World War. This book explains the striking contrast between his reputation as a staunch anti-Nazi and an 'anti-appeaser' in Berlin, and as a 'defeatist-appeaser' in Paris. 276pp. N.B. Slight crease to front D/J.
