"With reversible bookjacket for work in the field." The reverse of the bookjacket identifies the book as "The Bible Revised to be Read as Literature."

Contents :

"Bill Tanner's distinguished wartime carepr in the Sappers ended in 1944 when he was wounded in the course of a sabotage operation. He later served on the secretariat to the Chiefs of Staff Committee, but, he says, retained his sense of numour. He still retains some of it after twelve years as M's Number Two. He is 007's best friend in the Service and at least once (in 1956) has been bought luncheon by him at Scott's in Piccadilly. (They had dressed crab and black velvet he remembers.) Although Bill is the author of several hundred official minutes ana memoranda this is the first work of his to appear publicly and between hard covers." (from front flap of the dj).

"James Bond reigns supreme among the glamorous figures of this phase of our civilization. Only the dull of soul, or the over-eighties and under-fives (or those of us who are women), can have escaped the desire to borrow his glory, to become like him in the eyes of the world, especially that part of the world which consists of women. But in the past most of us have been discouraged from actually joining the 00 Section of the Secret Service by the thougnt that the dangers outweigh the rewards.

Now all this has changed. William Tanner, for years a colleague of Bond's and so naturally a keen student of his exploits, gives detailed instruction on how to be as glamorous as Bond without having to be kicked in the shins with poisoned shoes or nibbled by sharks. This complete and authoritative guide to 007ship tells you what to wear, what and how to eat and drink and smoke, how to be the scourge of the casino without actually doing any gambling, what devices to install in your car, how to recognize the kind of girl a 007 should go for, etc. etc. By careful study of The Book of Bond, plus a modest outlay of time and money, even you can be your own 007." (from the back panel of the dj).

Bill Tanner is a fictional character in the James Bond film and novel series. The author is actually Kingsley Amis.

(6),vii-xi,(1),13-150,(2). Illustrated in colour. Folio, black paper-covered boards with gilt lettering to front and spine.

"Sending and receiving mail lies at the heart of our lives and the history of our vast country. Dymbolized by the letter carrier, the letter, or the stamp, the post is part of our daily life. The postal system has taken part in Canada's great historical moments: in the fur trade, in the construction of the railway, on the abttlefield. It has evolved with the rhythm of explorers' journeys and the transformation of the land into the Canada we know today. The post office stands, literally and figuratively, right in the centre of our villages and cities, and it remains at the centre of our modern communications network.

To celebrate Canada's postal heritage, 'Special Delivery' showcases the jewels in the collection of the Canadian Postal Museum and tells the stories of our rarest and most beautiful stamps. Archival photos bring to life horse-drawn wagons and sleighs, early aircraft and snowmobiles, and remote post offices. Modern photos show the jets and trucks that move today's huge volume of mail.

Throughout the history of Canada's postal system, some things never change. It's the people - the clerks, the sorters, the drivers, the letter carriers, the postmasters - who make the mail go through. The responsibility of delvering the mail and the excitement of receiving it are the same today as they were in the days of sail." - from the dustjacket.

It is particularly interesting as it provides an insight into the problems of manning the wartime merchant marine and those experienced in a convoy in the early days of World War II, when there was a lack of sufficient escort vessels and an increasing enemy threat from both submarines and aircraft."

"Is the United States defense establishment today well run? To ask that question is to provoke a set of additional Queries. For example, are resources allocated efficiently enough, in peacetime, to produce well trained and well equipped combat units? In wartime, will the command arrangements currently in force be sufficient to provide for the combined arms approach that modern battles require? Are the military properly organized so as to give timely and integrated advice to their civilian superiors? Have the civilians in the defense establishment usurped the traditional prerogatives of the military? Is there a process in place that produces a ciear-cut, rational strategy to govern the use of force? Are decisions on programs and force structures clearly related to strategy? In its structure and operation, how does the American defense establishment compare to those of other nations? Is it better or more poorly managed? Are there lessons for improvement that can be derived from a study of how other nations manage their defense establishments? Finally, if some changes in structure and procedure are necessary, what are the alternatives, and the costs and benefits of each? These are the range of subjects to which the authors in this volume address themselves." (from the Introduction by Robert J. Art).

BACNHER, Evan. At Ease : Navy Men of World War II. (New York) : Harry N. Abrams, Inc., Publishers, (2004). First Printing. Pp (4),5-160. 4to, blue boards, with lighter blue lettering. A large-format photography book. "In the years following World War II, images of comradeship, particularly of men being physically close, largely disappeared from the public record. But, as these stunning photographs attest, ordinary American men in the extraordinary circumstances of World War II were affectionate, winsome, and playful-disarmingly innocent in a time of cataclysmic peril. Led by photography giant Captain Edward J. Steichen, the U.S. Naval Aviation Photographic Unit was organized during the war to record the daily experiences of Navy men all over the world and provide newspapers and magazines with images to promote theAmerican cause. The Unit's photographers, who included Wayne Miller, Horac e Bristol, Victor Jorgensen, and Barrett Gallagher, among others, took thousands of pictures to document the lives of soldiers as they relaxed, trained, went about their lives, prepared for the next battle, and waited. When the tension of battle was over or yet to come, these photographers captured the moments when troops left behind their responsibilities as men for a little while and became boys again: roughhousing, wrestling, lounging, and showing off. This book brings together a selection of more than 150 of those [black & white] photographs, culled from the Still Pictures Branch of the National Archives, including many that have never before been published. While World War II imagery tends to be dominated by combat photography and monumental depictions of mechanized weaponry, these photographs offer a rare, intimate look at the Navy men themselves." - from the dj.

A large-format photography book. "During the Second World War, the Naval Aviation Photographic Unit vividly capturedthe ordinary lives of soldiers during extraordinary circumstances, produci ng thousands of professional-quality photographs. These photographs reveal the human side of the war: the enlisted men are at turns playful, bored, relaxed, or on edge. In this follow-up to the revelatory 'At Ease', Evan Bachner once again culls the best images from the National Archives to illuminate these men at war. As in 'At Ease', the high level of artistry and composition in the photos is striking, due to the experience and craft of the menbehind the camera. The Naval Aviation Photographic Unit, formed to provide images for patriotic publications, was led by Edward Steichen, a master ph otographer. His team included such photography luminaries as Horace Bristol, Wayne Miller, Charles Fenno Jacobs, and Victor Jorgensen. In addition, this volume includes photographs from the Marine's, Army Air Corps, and Army collections, which have a style that is less polished but more intimate andcompelling. This book, which inclucldes many never-before- published image s, captures the servicemen in their daily routines—living in a war, but so often at rest or at play. Featuring more than 150 [black & white] photographs, from the Still Pictures branch of the National Archives, 'Men of WWII' focuses on the quieter and more personal side of the war. Rather than highlighting violent, iconic war imagery, these photographs bring a sense of humanity to the conflict that has shaped the modern world" - from the dj.
