Mr Midshipman Easy, Captain Marryat
13 Captain Marryat Mr Midshipman Easy
Rylee Classics 243592 Great Britain Hardcover Good Condition Poor Mr Nicodemus Easy was a gentleman who lived down in Hampshire; he was a married man, and in very easy circumstances. Most couples find it very easy to have a family, but not always quite so easy to maintain them. Mr Easy was not at all uneasy on the latter score, as he had no children; but he was anxious to have them, as most people covet what they cannot obtain. After ten years, Mr Easy gave it up as a bad job. Philosophy is said to console a man under disappointment, although Shakespeare asserts that it is no remedy for toothache; so Mr Easy turned philosopher, the very best profession a man can take up, when he is fit for nothing else; he must be a very incapable person indeed who cannot talk nonsense. Dust jacket has has large piece missing from bottom of rear and bottomn of spine edges. 251 pages. Pages well browned. Dust jacket has rubbing, chips and tears to edges. Quantity Available: 1.

The Collector's Eye: Decorating With The Objects You Love, Christine Churchill With Ted Loos
16 Christine Churchill With Ted Loos The Collector's Eye: Decorating With The Objects You Love
HarperResource 245390 2002 First Edition 0688173861 / 9780688173869 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good Keith Scott Morton [Phototgraphs] In this lavishly illustrated volume, Christine Churchill establishes the definition of the new American collectible and shows how -- by using a discerning eye and armed with basic know-how -- talented individuals and seasoned collectors can create their own signature design aesthetic and apply it to their homes and their lives. American vintage style has evolved and changed. Gone are the old-style American antiques: Chippendale highboys stuffed with precious "smalls" in museum-perfect homes. Today, interesting and unique homes showcase character-filled objects; old number signs with bright graphics; weathered finials; funereal vases; mercury glass collections. The Collector's Eye shows that the best rooms are not the result of excessive spending and "decoration" but are a reflection of how the owner's passions and ideas can result in a collection that is both deeply personal and valuable. By examining individual collections that range in aesthetic from folksy arts and crafts to urban modern, Churchill offers a wealth of ideas and information for all budding collectors and enthusiasts. Complete with informative sidebars and detailed caption photos, The Collector's Eye describes the intricacies of these objects, imparts tips on sleuthing for them, offers practical advice on their placement and upkeep, and guides readers on today's hot collectibles and how to go about building their own special collection. 160 pages. Illustrator: Keith Scott Morton [Phototgraphs]. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Interior Design; Home Decorating & Repair; ISBN: 0688173861. ISBN/EAN: 9780688173869.

The Glass Blowers, Daphne Du Maurier
17 Daphne Du Maurier The Glass Blowers
Victor Gollancz 245477 Great Britain 1963 First Edition Hardcover Good Condition Good 'Perhaps we shall not see each other again. I will write to you, though, and tell you, as best I can, the story of your family. A glass-blower, remember, breathes life into a vessel, giving it shape and form and sometimes beauty; but he can with that same breath, shatter and destroy it' Faithful to her word, Sophie Duval reveals to her long-lost nephew the tragic story of a family of master craftsmen in eighteenth-century France. The world of the glass-blowers has its own traditions, it's own language - and its own rules. 'If you marry into glass' Pierre Labbe warns his daughter, 'you will say goodbye to everything familiar, and enter a closed world'. But crashing into this world comes the violence and terror of the French Revolution against which, the family struggles to survive. The Glass Blowers is a remarkable achievement - an imaginative and exciting reworking of du Maurier's own family history. 320 pages. Foxing to endpapers and page edges. Dust Jacket price-clipped. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Fiction; Fiction; Rare & Collectible. Inventory No: 245477. Hardcover
