A new book with faint edgewear.; 'This is a revised and updated edition of Alison Plowden's classic study of the dominant women of the Tudor era. The women of the royal family are the central characters in this book - royal women set the style and between them they provide a dazzling variety of personalities as well as illustrating almost every aspect of life as it affected women in Tudor England. The story of the Tudor queens, from the founding of the dynasty, through Henry VIII's wives and culminating in Elizabeth I, is narrated clearly, set against the background of the politics and society of the age. Alison Plowden also explores lower- and middle-class women's status, education and upbringing, painting a picture of life for the average Tudor housewife in this beautifully written and carefully researched book.'; Published @ 12.99; this edition out-of-print.

31 6264 PULLAR, Phillipa Gilded Butterflies : The Rise and Fall of the London Season
Hardcover Hamish Hamilton: London; 1978; First British Edition 192 pages B&W Illustrations: Very Good+ in Very Good dust wrapper 
Spine ends lightly bumped, clean purple boards faintly faded at edges; no binding problems, pages clean and bright. Unclipped dust wrapper lightly edgeworn and creased, one tiny closed tear.; Profusely illustrated with black and white drawings, photographs, and paintings. This history "has a serious intent but is also an entertainment. Pullar has caught and analyzed the manners of society during four centuries" including the author's experiences during her own two seasons. "It is doubtful whether the London season now has any significance, although as the author says 'snobbery is as intrinsic to the British as it ever was when Elizabeth I was rampant, or James sold titles in return for gold.' But its history is both fascinating and salutary."

Secret Empire: Eisenhower, the CIA, and the Hidden Story of America's Space Espionage, TAUBMAN, Philip

Hardcover Simon & Schuster: NY; 2003; First US Edition 441 pages Near Fine in Very Good+ dust wrapper 
A lovely copy. Spine head bumped; unclipped dust wrapper faintly edgeworn and lightly rubbed.; 'During the early and most dangerous years of the cold war, a handful of Americans, led by President Dwight D. Eisenhower, revolutionized spying and warfare. In great secrecy and beyond the prying eyes of Congress and the press, they built exotic new machines that opened up theSoviet Union to surveillance and protected the United States from surprise nuclear attack. This is the dramatic story of these men and their inventions, told in full for the first time.

In a brief period of explosive, top-secret innovation during the 1950s, a small group of scientists, engineers, businessmen, and government officials rewrote the book on airplane design and led the nation into outer space. In an effort no less audacious than the creation of the atomic bomb, they designed, built, and operated the U-2 and supersonic SR-71 spy planes and Corona, the first reconnaissance satellites -- machines that could collect more information about the Soviet Union's weapons in a day than an army of spies could assemble in a decade.'; Image is actual copy on offer.
