Possession: A Romance, A. S. Byatt
42 A. S. Byatt Possession: A Romance
Vintage 234897 London 1991 0099800403 / 9780099800408 Softcover Good Condition "Literary critics make natural detectives," says Maud Bailey, heroine of a mystery where the clues lurk in university libraries, old letters, and dusty journals. Together with Roland Michell, a fellow academic and accidental sleuth, Maud discovers a love affair between the two Victorian writers the pair has dedicated their lives to studying: Randolph Ash, a literary great long assumed to be a devoted and faithful husband, and Christabel La Motte, a lesser-known "fairy poetess" and chaste spinster. At first, Roland and Maud's discovery threatens only to alter the direction of their research, but as they unearth the truth about the long-forgotten romance, their involvement becomes increasingly urgent and personal. Desperately concealing their purpose from competing researchers, they embark on a journey that pulls each of them from solitude and loneliness, challenges the most basic assumptions they hold about themselves, and uncovers their unique entitlement to the secret of Ash and La Motte's passion. 511 pages.

Kate Remembered, A. Scott Berg
45 A. Scott Berg Kate Remembered
G.P. Putnam's Sons 242806 Australia 2003 0743206762 / 9780743206761 Hardcover Good Condition Good For more than twenty years, Katharine Hepburn imparted many of the details of her life to me suggesting that I weave them into a book - one that would appear upon her death. Sad to say, the time has come to publish that book. But I find comfort in knowing she lived a very rich 96 years; and I have tried my best to honour her wish of making the book as true to her spirit as possible - as inspiring, as loving and as fun.' Scott Berg KATE REMEMBERED is a loving tribute and a tender farewell that reveals an unusual relationship in a unique life, one fully lived - and largely according to Katharine Hepburn's own rules. More importantly, it sets down many of the stories of that life as she saw them, full of sentiments she felt should not be made public until after her death. Ultimately, this book is not only a story of the poignant final twenty years in which Scott Berg knew Katharine Hepburn, but also a tale of a great theatrical personality and the better part of the century that was the stage for her distinguished life. 370 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Biography; Biography & Autobiography; ISBN: 0743206762. ISBN/EAN: 9780743206761.

Incas - The Light Of Machu Picchu, A.B. Daniel
50 A.B. Daniel Incas - The Light Of Machu Picchu
Simon & Schuster 236683 London 2003 0743207238 / 9780743207232 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket In this third and final installment of the internationally bestselling INCAS trilogy, the love between an Inca princess and a foreign soldier will alter the destiny of two great civilizations once and for all. It's been three years since Captain Pizzaro and his conquistadors began their occupation of the Inca empire. With their insatiable appetite for gold, and despite Pizzaro's attempts at peaceful, Christian stewardship, many men have begun burning villages that fail to produce the valuable metal. Meanwhile, the Incas finally unite and prepare for war against their common enemy. Young Manco has reclaimed his rightful place as Emperor, and the beautiful, magical Anamaya is at his side. Yearning for peace, Anamaya's mysterious blue eyes still look to the spirit world for signs. She knows her beloved Gabriel, the Spanish soldier who bears the sacred puma's mark, will play an important role in the future of the Inca empire. But how can she convince Manco and his warriors that Gabriel is different, when they have sworn revenge against all the light-skinned Strangers? The impending conflict will divide our heroes. But, at the critical moment, will Anamaya and Gabriel choose loyalty or love? 359 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Fiction; Fiction; ISBN: 0743207238.

Chaucer - Canterbury Tales, A.C. Cawley [Editor]
54 A.C. Cawley [Editor] Chaucer - Canterbury Tales
Dent 237063 London 1984 Reprint 0460113070 / 9780460113076 Softcover Good Condition No Dust Jacket Inspired by Boccaccio's "Decameron", and framed as a storytelling competition between a group of pilgrims, Geoffrey Chaucer's "The Canterbury Tales" is one of the greatest works of English literature, translated from the Middle English with an introduction by Nevill Coghill in "Penguin Classics". In "The Canterbury Tales" Chaucer created one of the great touchstones of English literature, a masterly collection of chivalric romances, moral allegories and low farce. A story-telling competition between a group of pilgrims from all walks of life is the occasion for a series of tales that range from the Knight's account of courtly love and the ebullient Wife of Bath's Arthurian legend, to the ribald anecdotes of the Miller and the Cook. Rich and diverse, "The Canterbury Tales" offers us an unrivalled glimpse into the life and mind of Medieval England. Nevill Coghill's masterly and vivid English verse translation is rendered with consummate skill to retain all the vigour and poetry of Chaucer's fourteenth-century Middle English. Geoffrey Chaucer (c.1343-1400) was an English author, poet, philosopher, courtier and diplomat, best known as the author of "The Canterbury Tales". Chaucer is credited as being the first author to demonstrate the artistic legitimacy of the vernacular English language. The first poet to have been buried in the Poet's Corner of Westminster Abbey, his other works include "The House of Fame", "Troilus and Criseyde" and "The Book of the Duchess". If you enjoyed "The Canterbury Tales", you might like Boccaccio's "Decameron" 612 pages. Pages browned. Previous owners name on front endpaper. Cover edges rubbed. Quantity Available: 1.
