Yale University Press, New Haven & London, 1996, ISBN:0300038666 
BRISTOW, Ian C. Architectural Colour in British Interiors 1615-1840. New Haven & London: "Published for the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art by Yale University Press", 1996. First Edition. Pp (6),vii-xxi,(1),1-265,(1). Illustrated in colour and black & white. 4to, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "For many years, historical architectural colour has been anelusive topic, since paint fades and discolours, and most early schemes ha ve been obliterated by succeeding phases of redecoration. In parallel with this, the taste of later generations has also overlaid earlier ideas of colour with a mass of subjective opinion and received wisdom. To remedy matters, this objective study combines information from documentary sources with data obtained from the technical investigation of significant interiors by important architects of the period, and presents for the first time a coherent outline of true historical practice. It is an essential complement to more conventional architectural studies of form and space. Earlier essays inthe topic have not only been limited by the ephemeral nature of the physic al evidence, but have often assumed a fixed or universal canon of taste andfailed to understand the manner in which this has changed with every gener ation. A lack of technical knowledge has also led to the misinterpretation of early documents; and although much has been published on the more immediately accessible subjects of wallpaper, textiles, furniture, and fine decorative painting, this is the first study dedicated to the architectural colours which united them. It is thus a key text for students of all aspects ofthe historic interior, besides the more general reader. In a series of cha pters, the noble interiors of Inigo Jones are contrasted with more intimatespaces of the period; and the succeeding drabness adopted in many rooms of the second half of the seventeenth century is set against its taste for ma rbling, graining, and imitation japan. It is shown how the new foundation established by the Palladians came to provide the basis for the lively use of colour by Robert Adam and his contemporaries; and the study concludes by showing how the development of colour theory in the early nineteenth century superseded eighteenth-century ideas and, combined with the Regency taste for the exotic, led to an entirely new outlook, much of which still forms present-day preconceptions." - from the dj. Chapters: 1. Introduction: the age of Inigo Jones; 2. The age of Wren; 3. The Palladians from 1715 to the mid-1750s; 4. The coloured neo-classical ceilings of Robert Adam and his contemporaries; 5. Paint colour on walls in neo-classical interiors; 6. The late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries: archaeological and exotic influences; 7. New perceptions of colour: its usage at the end of the period. With notes, sopurces and index. Faint mark where label removed from endpaper, else very good in dustjacket. 100.00

BROWNE, Douglas G. The Floating Bulwark : The Story of the Fighting Ship: 1514-1942. London : Cassell, (1963). First Printing. Pp (6),vii-xiv,(2),3-274 + frontispiece + 24 pages of Illustrations. 8vo, orange cloth, gilt lettering to spine.

"'He that commands the sea is at great liberty and may take as much and as little of the war as he will.'

Francis Bacon's maxim, true in his own time, was an essential tenet of British foreign policy for nearly four hundred years. The influence of British sea-power on European conflicts and the struggle for empire overseas was a constant thread in the Island's endeavour to maintain a favourable balance of power.

Although, during the centuries betore the advent of the aircraft carrier and, later, the seaborne atomic missile which changed the whole strategic aspect of sea-power, Britain was able to challenge the navies of Europe and establish a world-wide supremacy, it was sometimes due more to the qualities of her seamen and the determination of the administrators ot her navy than to the superiority of her naval architecture.

Douglas Browne's study of the development of fighting ships, from the building of the Henry Grace à Dieu at Woolwich in 1514 to the eclipse of the capital ship with the Battle of Midway in June 1942, takes full account of this situation. He points out that during the eighteenth century the French and the Spanish, working to scientific principles, built ships which consistently outsailed any that British yards, using the old rule-of-thumb methods, could produce. Yet thanks to the brilliance of her seamen, culminating in the genius of Nelson, the British navy prevailed (just as in the Dutch Wars of the previous century, daring and resolute commanders like Tromp and de Ruyter defied England's sea- power, although their ships were smaller and were poorly constructed).

While the emphasis of The Floating Bulwark is upon British ship construction, it is not studied in isolation, and foreign innovations, which often exerted a decisive influence' (especially during the nineteenth century), are also examined. And to illustrate the influence of advances in design upon naval tactics, and conversely of naval tactics upon design, Douglas Browne gives brief accounts of some of the world's important sea battles — not only those of British history from the Armada to Jutland, but also such significant encounters as the battles of Lissa, the Yalu and Midway, as well as the memorable clash between the Merrimac and the Monitor. The final view, therefore, is of the worldwide development and deployment of the battleship through more than four centuries, in a wide-ranging study which takes in the complete life-span of the capital ship." - from dj flaps.
