13 BALDWIN, Peter SPEAIGHT, George Toy Theatres of the World. First Edition in dustjacket
Zwemmer, London, 1992, ISBN:0302006141 
BALDWIN, Peter. Toy Theatres of the World. Foreword by George Speaight. (London) : Zwemmer, (1992). First Edition. Pp (7),8-175,(1). Ilustrated. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "For over 150 years, throughout the world and by whatever name it is known, the toy theatre has been a source ofenjoyment for children and adults alike. Perhaps the reason for this endur ing popularity has been the ability to provide - in terms of preparing stages, characters, sets, lighting and lines - an excitement akin to that of the real thestre. This extensively illustrated book is the first publication in English to cover the subject of toy theatres worldwide. The section on the English Juvenile Drama studies the designs and work of the leading British toy theatre publishers, such as William West and Benjamin Pollock. This is folowed by a comprehensive examination of toy theatres on the Continent,particularly in Denmark, which still boasts a thriving Toy Theatre Society , and Germany, where the strong interest in the Papiertheater was closely linked to a prolific toy manufacturing industry based in cities like Nuremberg, Neuruppin and Berlin. Especially interesting is Peter Baldwin's study of the toy theatre in America, which provides new evidence to suggest that at least one major New York publisher produced designs that were copied directly from children's journals in England. Finally, the book discusses the influence of the Juvenile Drama on great literary figures such as Chesterton, Dickens,l Thackeray and Mann, as well as providing important practical information on the design and construction of toy theatres." (from the dj). Contents : Foreword. Introduction. 1. The Toy Theatre in England. 2. Papiertheater in Germany. 3. Dukketeater in Denmark. 4. The Kindertheater in Austria. 5. Imagerie Français. 6. Spain and El Teatro de los Ninos. 7. Other Continental Variations. 8. North America. 9. THrough a Child's Eyes. Appendix I - Pollock, Webb, Diaghilev and The Triumph of Neptune.

BENNION, Elisabeth. Antique Hearing Devices. London and Brighton: Vernier Press, (1994). First Printing. Pp. (4),v-vi,1-58. Illustrated in black and white. 8vo, pale blue illustrated card covers with dark blue titles to frontand spine. "Of the many causes of deafness, old age is but one. Some peopl e are born deaf, some achieve deafness and some have deafness thrust upon them. For each, a large part of life is henceforth denied them; full communication with others, the delights of music and sounds of the natural world, the warning sounds that presage danger, use of sometimes of technology, andmany another. Of these consequences it may be that the reaction of other p eople is the hardest to bear. The irritation of making themselves understood, attempts to quell the thought that the deaf must be certainly stupid andnot trying, often result in the other person reneging on efforts at commun ication altogether. The deaf are no less irritated and frequently exhaustedby their part in the dialogue. Since time and deafness began, the sympathy shown to the deaf has been a fraction of that shown to the blind. Emotions from peevishness to thorough bad temper have been the outcome of so many e ncounters. Attempts to alleviate this afflication have been slow. This monograph endeavours to show how, before the sophistication of modern electronic aids, the deaf found some help in articles of a rare and beautiful ingenuity." - from the rear cover. Contents: Background history; Hearing aids; Trumpets; Conversation tubes and variants; Concealed or camouflaged receptors; Devices to increase the natural mechanism; Bone-conduction devices; Electrical aids.

The third section focuses on the discovery and development of European porcelain, its prevailing styles, its peak of achievement, and its decline.
