Barrett, Trevor
The Isle of Man snuggles cosily between the coastlines of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales - yet is not part of the UK or the EU. Head of State is the Duke of Normandy - yet female. Crime rates are extremely low - yet use of a simple three-letter word in public is almost tantamount to treason. This book portrays the Isle of Man in a new light - a book to appeal not only to the people of this unique island nation but also to a far wider audience.168pp. N.B. Top edge of rear D/J creased.

Fox, James
Drawn from the private family archive, this book recounts a family's dramatic reinvention and transformation on both sides of the Atlantic. "All of the Langhorne sisters are people one has to notice", wrote Eleanor Roosevelt from the White House in 1945. This effect and their great fame held sway first in the South, in Virginia, then the rest of America and England. High spirited, beautiful, clannish and adored, these five strikingly different women were mythologized in the plural long after their separate careers were a matter of history. Lizzie was the strict, puritan eldest sister, Irene was the flirtatious and golden southern belle. Nancy was flamboyant and powerful, and, after a disastrous first marriage, launched herself first on the stuffy ruling classes of England and then the House of Commons as the first woman MP. The luminous and melancholy Phyllis was a brilliant horsewoman and the only person Nancy loved all through her life. Nora was the eternal child, her life punctuated with seductions and boltings. This exploration of family myth unravels the darker stories: the tragic lives of Nancy and Phyllis's children by their first marriages. Placing his great aunt Nancy and grandmother Phyllis at its heart, the book looks at how their past lives and mistakes in America came back to haunt them. Told in their own intimate voices, selected from thousands of letters and journals, the book charts the attempts of two extraordinary women to transform themselves and to build new lives, and the chain of events that would destroy their family lives and happiness. Top edge of D/J slightly creased. Small tear to top corner of D/J on front wrapper. 578pp.

Snyder, Timothy A.
This is an exploration of the natural arches and pillars of Ohio. The heart of the book is the identification, description, and interpretation of some 83 arches and 18 pillars known to occur in the state. Background information about the bedrock geology of Ohio, the methods of measuring and describing natural arches and pillars, the processes by which these features can be formed, and the ways that they are eventually removed from the landscape provide interesting and valuable context for better understanding the creation, destruction, and study of these unusual elements of the geological landscape. The names and locations of publicly accessible arches and pillars are given. This is the most extensive statewide review of natural arches and pillars known, and it will almost certainly become a model that will inspire and influence similar compilations for other states. 428pp.
