6206 BRINKLEY, George A. Volunteer Army and Allied Intervention in South Russia, 1917-1921 : A Studyin the Politics and Diplomacy of the Russian Civil War. First Edition in d ustjacket
University of Notre Dame Press, Notre Dame, Indiana, 1966, 
BRINKLEY, George A. The Volunteer Army and Allied Intervention in South Russia, 1917-1921 : A Study in the Politics and Diplomacy of the Russian CivilWar. (Notre Dame, Indiana) : University of Notre Dame Press, 1966. First E dition. Pp (8_,ix-xvii,(3),3-446. Map. Index,. 8vo, red cloth, black lettering to front board and spine, top edge dyed red. "The Russian Civil War andthe accompanying allied intervention from 1917- 1921 have long been recogn ized as major events in the great upheaval unleashed by World War I. Yet today, almost halt a centurv after these events, they remain less than fully analyzed or even chronicled. Dr. Brinkley's book, the first extensive studvin its field in over 30 years, fills this gap in historical literature by focusing attention on the activities of strong anti- Bolshevik forces in South Russia and their relations with non-Russian border countries and the Allies. The Volunteer Army demonstrates why the anti-Bolshevik revolt in South Russia and the resultant Allied intervention were both doomed to failure.It dissects the movements, policies, and reasons behind Allied interventio n, which was initially a continuation of the Allied war against Germany. Too exhausted to commit themselves to all-out military cooperation and unready to attempt top-level peace negotiations, the Allies folowed a vacillatingpolicy of intervention. The revolumary ideal, its perspective narrowed by private interests, political naivete, and Allied misunderstandings, missed universality by lack of appeal. The great adventure became a tragedy of errors." (from the dj). Contents : Part I - Russia and the World War. 1. The Disintegration of Russia. 2. The Impact of German Occupation. Part II - Allied Intervention in South Russia. 3. The Post-War Intervention. 4. The French and the Volunteers in Odessa. 5. Britain as a Buffer. Part III - The Riseand Fall of the Volunteer Army. 6.

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

The possible future - or the absence of it — which the flying bomb portends. The first intimation of the next war may be an ultimatum or a threat that 'some of our cities will be blasted next morning' said General Sir Frederick Pile, chief of Britain's Anti-Aircraft Command, recently.'That is what the flying bomb has brought us to. It is the beginning of a new type of war.' That is what frightens the people of Britain — the beginning of a new type of war.

Nearly all of these are devoted entirely to rowing, or to rowin g and closely allied sports. Excluding the few which are concerned only in a minor degree with rowing, 140 of the books and pamphlets are in English (including 5 published in British colonies and 17 in the United States), 48 in German, 15 in French (including 1 published in Belgium), 7 in Norwegian,7 in Dutch (including 1 published in Belgium), 5 in Italian, 2 in Swedish, 2 in Danish, and 1 each in Russian, Polish, and Spanish. The second part, which is limited to articles on rowing published in periodicals and encyclopaedias, contains about 700 items. Those included under each year are further arranged in alphabetical order of the periodicals in which they appear. I have frequently given a summary of the contents of an article instead of an exact reproduction of a vague title. The compilation of this part was particularly difficult in the later years, owing to the fact that some important periodicals have long since abandoned the publication of an annual index, so that 1 have often had to examine every number in order to pick out articles on rowing." - p.[ix].

(6),[7]-272 + 8 pages ofb&w photos. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "This is the story, told against the background of the author's own university, of women's struggle for equal opportunity in the field of scholarship and intellectual achievement No recent book has been written on this subject with Oxford as itsscene. The date October i3th, 1959 marked the 80th anniversary of the esta blishment of women's colleges at Oxford. This book covers approximately a century, beginning with the liberal reforms at the University after 1850 which made possible the foundation of women's colleges, and ending with the abolition of the restrictions on the number of women undergraduates in 1957, and the altered status of the women's "societies" to that of full colleges in 1959. It will be news to many that their attainment of equal status has been so recent, in spite of the fact that Oxford women students became eligible for degrees 27 years before the women at Cambridge. This is a "successstory" of an unusual type, which will appeal to every reader who is intere sted in the battles of the mind. The author makes full and entertaining useof the humorous episodes arising from the early prejudices which hampered (though not for long) the struggle for the degree. Her book is also a portrait gallery of famous women, ranging from such picturesque early Principalsas Dame Elizabeth Wordsworth and Miss Anne Moberly, and such gifted 19th-c entury students as Eleanor Rathbone and Maude Royden, to the many outstanding younger figures in present-day scholarship, literature, education, broadcasting, and politics."

"Volume One accompanies Britten through prep and public school and then to London to the Royal College of Music, where the phenomenally gifted but inexperienced young composer is plunged into metropolitan life and makes influential new friends, among them W.H. Auden and Christopher Isherwood. This was a time of prodigious musical creativity, a growing awareness of his sexuality, and the dawning of his political convictions: the letters and diaries show a constant awareness of the Spanish Civil War and the lengthening shadow of fascism in Europe. Most importantly, during this period Britten met Peter Pears and established the musical and personal relationship that was to last a lifetime." - from the dustjacket.
