861 2984 THOMAS, Gillian A Position to Command Respect: Women and the Eleventh Britannica
Hardcover Scarecrow Press: Metuchen, NJ & London; 1992; 212 pages Near Fine 
A new book. No dust wrapper, as issued.; 'The 1910-1911 "Encyclopaedia Britannica" was advertised as "the high water mark of human knowledge." Its contributors included some of the most notable figures from the late Victorian and Edwardian worlds of scholarship and knowledge. That 34 of the 1,500 contributors were women was widely perceived as signaling a significant breakthrough into the world of learning. The historical moment when these women were trying to claim cultural authority was one in which the role of women was being debated as never before. Many of the women contributors (predominantly British) were active participants in the suffrage debate. The book examines public and private aspects of the women contributors' lives and includes short biographies.' ; Published at $35.00

866 5018 TODD, Pamela Pre-Raphaelites At Home
Hardcover Watson- Guptill Publishing: NY; 2001; First US Edition 4to 11" - 13" tall; 192 pages Color Illustrations: Near Fine in Very Good+ dust wrapper 
A new book with faint edgewear to dust wrapper. ; The semi-secret Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was a fiery group of young artists, designers and thinkers, led by the charismatic figure of Dante Gabriel Rossetti. This book 'explores their personalities and work through the places and haunts they made their own, presenting an intimate view of an important section of the avant-garde artistic community and placing it firmly in its Victorian context. "Pre-Raphaelites at Home" is a book about personality and place. Biographies of each of the extensive cast of characters open the book, followed by a chronology of the significant events affecting the group over more than 60 years. In the succeeding chapters Rossetti, John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt and Thomas Woolner are joined by William Morris, Edward Burne-Jones and their intimate circle. Place by place, we are led through the story of subtly shifting allegiance, of love and deaths, adultery and illness, as the angry young men became successful, and, in some cases, even respectable. The lively narrative, packed with quotation from their own work, is lavishly illustrated with full colour reproductions of Pre-Raphaelite paintings and portraits, photographs of interiors, furnishings and textile designs, and black and white contemporary photographs of the artists, their homes and their studios, as well as line drawings, sketches and cartoons from Punch and material from the Illustrated London News. Recommended.; A picture of AT as a child that we have not seen previously is included in this book. Published @ $40.00.

875 3080 TREMAIN, Rose Restoration
Softcover; Trade PB Penguin: NY; c1989,1994; First Edition Thus Very Good+  
371 pages; No spine creases, very light edgewear, image from film on front cover. ; Basis for the movie of the same name starring Robert Downey, Jr. set in 17th Century England during the reign of Charles II. ; 'The double import of Tremain's title--it refers both to the reign of the 17th-century Restoration King Charles II and to the restoration to the protagonist of his beloved home and aspirations for his life--is one of the subtle delights of this accomplishe d novel, shortlisted for the Booker and winner of other awards in Britain. The story is of one man's rise and fall and rise again, of his discovery of love and faith, and his emotional maturation in a crucible of harrowing experiences. In a larger sense, however, it is a social, cultural and psychological picture of that age, when bluebloods lived in gaudy excess but others were expected to be content in their "appointed stations."

Through the whim of his adored monarch, narrator Robert Merivel becomes veterinarian to the Royal Dogs, unofficial Fool, and "paid cuckold," when he marries the King's mistress, Celia Clemence, on condition that he himself will never fall in love with her. Having unwittingly succumbed to that forbidden emotion, Merivel is cast off by both wife and King, and must join his dour Quaker friend Pearce working in a lunatic asylum in remote, bleak Whittlesea. Another tragic loss sends him back to plague-ridden London, where his life comes full turn. Merivel embodies the contradictions of his era: though he is vain, frivolous and cynical, he is also a man of sensibility, intelligence and imaginative daring; his wry, witty voice holds the reader absorbed. A thoroughly satisfying read, the complex plot is augmented by acutely observed historical detail, nuanced character development, humor and poignancy.' -Publishers Weekly. Published @ $14.00

Quarter cloth bindings with decorated paper covered boards and decorated endpapers. Two of the lovely volumes are near fine.The very good 'Barchester Towers' volume has circular dampstains on front and a few white spots on back. No dust wrappers as issued, blue slipcase, faintly dusty, has bumped corners.; The first three volumes of "The Barsetshire Novels", the first serial fiction in English literature. The six novel series tells the story of the professional and landed classes in the Victorian cathedral town of Barchester and the surrounding county. Angela Thirkell readers will recognize many of the family names and place names as she 'borrowed' Trollope's Barsetshire for her own novels of 20th century English life. 'The Warden' introduction by Owen Chadwick, 'Barchester Towers' introduction by Ruth Rendell, 'Doctor Thorne' introduction by P.D. James.; Recommended by Holly H. of the ATS and the Angela Thirkell email discussion group:'Contemporary reviewers describe "Barchester Towers" as a comic masterpiece, centering on the burning question of who will rule the diocese of Barchester. They are absolutely correct. In this novel, second in the famous Barsetshire series, Trollope introduces one of the most detestable characters in all of literature, Mrs. Proudie, and one of the slimiest, Mr. Slope. There is the dear eccentric and mild Mr. Harding, his highly marriageable daughter Eleanor, and perhaps my favorite, the Archdeacon Grantly, the spiritual opposer to the Proudie-Slope contingent and a stubborn, comic, and still admirable character. This is a classic and must reading.' This three volume set will incur extra shipping charges if sent outside the US. Images are actual copies on offer.

Ex-library book with usual stamps and markings; in nice condition. Spine ends faintly bumped. Unclipped dust wrapper has no library markings, is faintly edgeworn. ; 'A keenly observed and elegant new novel about the families we're born into, and the ones we create.

We all need to know where we come from, where we belong. But for David and Natalie, this need to know is even more urgent, since they are adopted. Brought up by the same parents, but born to two different mothers, they have grown up as brother and sister, and share a fierce loyalty.

Their decision, in their late thirties, to embark upon the journey to find their birth mothers is no straightforward matter. It affects, acutely and often painfully, their spouses and children, the people they work with, and, most poignantly, the two women who gave them up for adoption all those years ago, and who have since made other lives, even borne other children.

Exploring her subject with inimitable imagination and humanity, Joanna Trollope once again works her magic. In this rich narrative, at once gritty and graceful, she exposes the extraordinary challenges that arise at the heart of ordinary lives.'
