169 BARRON, W.R.J., editor. Arthur of the English : the Arthurian Legend in Medieval English Life and Literature.

[i]-xvii,(1),[1]-422,(8). 8vo, beige car d covers. "The English think of Arthur as their own - stamped on the landscape in scores of placenames, echoed in the names of their princes even today. Yet if the English had anything to do with a historical Arthur, it was as his bitterest enemies and hi-jackers of the British heritage. This book, which brings together the work of leading international scholars, is the first comprehensive treatment of Arthurian literature in the English languageto the end of the Middle Ages and traces the process by which the Arthuria n legends were assimilated to become an important part of the English cultural heritage. Literary studies are interspersed with chapters on the political and social manifestations of the Arthurian legend, the influence of continental romance tradition, and the mediaeval legacy to later centuries of English literature." -- from rear cover. Very good. 37.50

Michael Joseph, London, 1964, 
BATES, H.E. A Moment in Time. London : Michael Joseph, (1964). First Edition. Pp. (6),7-[248]. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Eads A100a. "The setting of A Moment in Time is Southern England in the summer of 1940, the year of the Battle of Britain. The story is recounted by a young girl of good family and rather secluded upbringing, Elizabeth Cartwright, who suddenly finds her life revolutionised and eventually almost shattered by her friendship with a group of young fighter-pilots engaged in desperate conflict above her beloved pastoral countryside. As she passes successively througn hero-worship, gaiety, adoration, love, dread, disillusionment, anguish, bitterness and tragedy to final happiness, the novel becomes an account of two battles: the one of mortal conflict for victory in the sky, the other, equally desperate, the very soul of the girl herself. Flying Officer X, whch H. E. Bates wrote from his experiences with the RA.F during the war, willnot need to be reminded that his knowledge and interpretation of the lives of flying men is vigorous, compelling and authentic. These qualities are a ll eminently displayed in A Moment in Time, together with his unparallelledfeeling for the English countryside and its people during that most memora ble summer nearly a quarter of a century ag." (from the dj). Very good in slighly nicked, unclipped dustjacket. 45.00
