In the research for this previously unpublished 16th and 17th century manuscripts of armorial bearings were discovered. Although not relating exclusively to Cornwall, they included a large number of references of Cornish families. The number of arms so found together with a review of many early printed and other sources has resulted in this book of almost 2,500 family arms."

128 pp "To stripe a surface serves to distinguish it, to point it out, to oppose it or associate it with another surface, and thus to classify it, to keep an eye on it, to verify it, even to censor it. Throughout the ages, the stripe has made its mark in mysterious ways. From prisoners' uniforms to tailored suits, a street sign to a set of sheets, Pablo Picasso to Saint Joseph, stripes have always made a bold statement. But the boundary that separates the good stripe from the bad is often blurred."

1915 Pathak, Anamika Pashmina
New Delhi. India Lustre Press: 2004 Hardcover. Good Quarto 
144 pp color photographs

"A four-thousand-year-old sandstone bust depicts a bearded priest covering his left shoulder with a shawl or mantle. Even today Indian men wear shawls similarly. In fact, the woollen tradition in India spans more than four millennia, right from the days of the ancient Indus civilization. Pashmina is an adventure of considerable scope and daring, taking you through a grand tour of the finest fabric known to the world. Its subject matter is nothing less than Indian textile history brought up to date with the patterns and colours of present-day attire. At first, the book presents an overview: the royal patronage that nourished the industry, the techniques that went into the making of a pashmina shawl, the slow and subtle evolution of brilliant motifs. It then goes on to present a more detailed picture: individual patterns, their differences in style, and their continuity with or departure from tradition."

"By rumor and official dispatch, news had come to Shrewsbury of a terrible betrayal. Philip FitzRobert, one of the Empress Maud's greatest champions, had turned coat, imprisoning thirty knights and squires who held true to the empress. The lucky ones had kin who could afford the dear price for their freedom; the others had to rot in captivity. Among the missing and unclaimed was Olivier de Bretagne, an exceptional knight whose mother had been a woman of the East - and whose sire, unknown to Olivier himself, was Brother Cadfael. It had happened during the Crusades, years before Cadfael had become a monk. Indeed, Cadfael did not know he had a son until by chance he met Olivier as a young man. But the bond is strong, and it is the one claim that can make Cadfael break his vows and drive him from his cloister, risking the religious way of life he so loves. A father first and a brother second, the monk travels to Coventry, where a great conference holds faint hope of a settled peace and clues to his son's whereabouts."

1966 Pollard, Justin Seven Ages of Britain.
Hodder and Stoughton 2003. Hardcover in DJ. Good/Good Octavo 
316 pp 316 pages, color photos. The book is an exploration of the lives of the ordinary inhabitants of Britain, starting when Britain first became an island at the close of the last Ice Age and ending at the beginning of the agricultural and industrial revolutions. It is an intimate social history of how we used to live and how we have adapted to the great changes that a hundred centuries of life on the island have wrought. Beneath the names and dates of schoolbook history there is another, often overlooked story - the history of the people as a whole and their experience of life through the ages. The book explores the lives and times of ordinary people of Britain who rarely emerge into the light of written history, but nevertheless were witness to every twist and turn and survived its consequences.

1971 Pope-Hennessy, John Paradiso. The Illuminations to Dante's Divine Comedy by Giovanni di Paolo.
Random House 1993 0679428054 Hardcover in DJ. Good Good Quarto 
224 pp' The British Library's Yeates-Thompson codex of Dante's Divine Comedy was created around 1445 for the library of the King of Naples. Its sixty-one miniatures of the Paradiso - the third and last book of the poem - are by the Sienese artist Giovanni de Paolo. Not only are they outstanding works of art, but they also represent how the poem would have been read in the middle of the fifteenth century. This cycle of illustrations is now reproduced in color for the first time. Unlike earlier illuminated manuscripts of the Divine Comedy, the miniatures do not just portray Dante and Beatrice rising through the nine heavens of Paradise, but also illustrate the stories of the figures they encounter and many of the metaphors and classical allusions in the narrative.'
