Goodbye Again : The Definitive Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, COOK, William (Editor)
2 6289 COOK, William (Editor) Goodbye Again : The Definitive Peter Cook and Dudley Moore
Hardcover Century: London; 2004; First British Edition 389 pages Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust wrapper 
Spine ends bumped, a few smudges on page edges. Unclipped dust wrapper has very light edgewear. A very nice copy.; 'Peter Cook and Dudley Moore are still commonly regarded as the greatest comic double act that Great Britain has ever produced. Today it's impossible to imagine modern sketch shows without them. If you're a fan of Monty Python, The Comic Strip or The Fast Show, then you're a fan of Cook and Moore. This collection of their works is a comprehensive compilation of the finest sketches that Cook and Moore ever wrote together - from the beginning of their partnership, in the groundbreaking stage show, Beyond The Fringe, to the notorious taboo busting Derek and Clive LPs that captured the spirit of punk rock, and inspired the scatological anarchy of Alternative Comedy. Featuring transcripts of one night stands long since almost forgotten, such as their Royal Variety performance, as well as a wealth of virtually unknown material, including previously unpublished scripts for "Not Only But Also", "Goodbye Again" promises to be a revelation, even for Cook and Moore's most informed fans. As well as illuminating their work, this book also promises to shed light on their intimate yet turbulent relationship.'

Wallace and Gromit and the Lost Slipper, DAVIES, Tristan and Nick Newman
3 6557 DAVIES, Tristan and Nick Newman Wallace and Gromit and the Lost Slipper
Hardcover Hodder & Stoughton: London; 1997; First Edition 44 pages Illustrated by Nick Newman; Color Illustrations: Very Good 
Spine ends and top corners bumped, bump on bottom board edges just revealing boards, otherwise looks unread. No dust wrapper, as issued.; In this graphic novel, Wallace and Gromit travel back through history, in search of a lost slipper. Along the way, they get involved in all sorts of famous historical events.; "The calamity-prone stars of Nick Park's Oscar-winning Claymation films continue their side-splitting adventures in this new story. It's an ordinary day for Wallace, the fastidious inventor-handyman, and his dog-companion Gromit until Wallace discovers one of his slippers is missing. He crafts a Longlife Indoor Carpet Clog with Reinforced Everything as a replacement, but it's just not very comfortable. The only solution left is to aim the grandfather clock time machine back to where the missing slipper was last sighted. Wallace and Gromit believe they've set the coordinates for earlier that morning, 11:06 a.m. But alas, they zoom off to the year 1066 and land in the middle of the Battle of Hastings. Fans of the films and videos will be especially pleased by this return engagement, and newcomers will be quickly charmed as well." Does not fit safely in an International Priority envelope.

Enough to Make a Cat Laugh, LONGDEN, Deric
4 7132 LONGDEN, Deric Enough to Make a Cat Laugh
Hardcover; Book Club Edition Book Club Associates: London; 1996; 251 pages Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust wrapper 
Spine ends lightly bumped, pages light yellow (seen before in this edition); no binding problems, pages clean and bright. Dust wrapper has very light edgewear and faint creasing. A rather nice copy of a very funny book.; 'Throughout the 1990s Deric Longden has shared his life with a blind novelist, Aileen Armitage, and four cats: Thermal, Tigger, Frink and shabby old Arthur. And the cats have found that sharing a life with Aileen can be a very painful business. She hardly ever trips over them these days, but they are always in danger of being mistaken for a cardigan, or inadvertently locked in the cellar. Ever since Thermal came in from the cold, Deric has seen his world increasingly taken over by cats. What with planning their menus, entertaining their friends, listening to their worries and observing their adventures, he has little time left over for his professional life as a writer. But there are rich rewards. One way or another, the cats in the Longden household are an endless source of interest and laughter. Few writers have found so much enjoyment in the company of cats, and none has written better about their charm, and the fascinating range of their personalities.This book will enchant cat-lovers everywhere, and give Longden-lovers an unforgettable treat.'; All of this author's books are highly recommended; we don't know why they all aren't published in the US. We were deeply saddened to learn he died in June 2013. Image is actual copy on offer.

Gift of a Home, The, NICHOLS, Beverley
5 7191 NICHOLS, Beverley Gift of a Home, The
Hardcover Dodd, Mead & Co: NY; 1973; First US Edition 8vo ; 395 pages Illustrated by William McLaren; B&W Illustrations: Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust wrapper 
Spine ends faintly bumped and faded, one top corner faintly bumped. Pages faintly age browned but clean. Unclipped dust wrapper has very lightly sunned spine and faint edgewear. A very nice copy indeed. ; This is a condensed version of the Merry Hall trilogy containing "Merry Hall", Laughter on the Stairs" and "Sunlight on the Lawn". They are Nichols' hilarious (but catty and often insulting to women) accounts of his tribulations in refurbishing a gracious, but run-down, Georgian house and garden.

"In the best tradition of P.G. Wodehouse and E.F. Benson, the author transforms the large and small happenings of a sleepy British village and country estate into mock high drama. Whether one is most interested in gardens, chandeliers, ghosts, cats, or bird song," his books are packed with endlessly quotable observations. As works of 'fictional' nonfiction, these are among the author's finest -and funniest - books.; This author recommended by Alison H. of the DES email discussion group, Kristi J. of the ATS, AT and DES email discussion groups and Patricia R. of the ATS and AT email discussion group. This first title in this omnibus is recommended and reviewed by Claire author of 'The Captive Reader' blog.Image is actual copy on offer.
