OWEN, Giles
Unpublished manuscript, 1938. OWEN, Giles. Detailed manuscript Flora of Mid Cheshire, centred on Barnton and Northwitch undertaken over twenty five years and written up in 1938. "Dedicated to the village of Barnton, my native place, where I commenced the a Botanical Survey". Pp 61 of manuscript text in a fine hand in ink, mainly on rectos , including pen and ink drawings with four fine watercolours of plants. This is an important and exhaustive Flora, listing and giving the locations of hundreds of different species of plant. Latin names are given, as well as common names, and there is a page devoted to "local lore" offering local derivations of named plants. Owen writes " in compiling a list of wildflowers of mid Cheshire contained in the area of seven miles radius of Northwich I have endeavoured to find out the wild plants that grow within the above area. I have surveyed the district during the last twenty five years and find that a great percentage of plants are common to the county. In some instances I have found plants not indigenous to Cheshire that have made their appearance and become established, and in others have disappeared after a year or so.......I have compared my list with "The Flora Of Cheshire" by Lord de Tabley 1885 and find that they largely agree, though in some cases a few plants have become extinct , or rarely appear." The work seems to have been written up in 1938, but there is a sad later addition , dated 1952: " The whole area of the Northwich Flashes 1952 was taken over by the neighbouring Chemical Works for the use of waste lime; the two brook … [Click Below for Full Description]

Anne Morrow Lindbergh; Charles Lindbergh
Chatto & Windus. Anne Morrow Lindbergh and Charles Lindbergh (1938) 'Listen! The Wind', UK first edition, first printing, published by Chatto & Windus. Signed and inscribed by Anne Morrow and Charles Lindberg on the title page "For Mr and Mrs Hook from Anne Morrow Lindbergh and Charles Lindbergh, [place?] 1938". Condition: the book is very good + condition. The book is internally clean with no other inscriptions and no foxing to endpapers or other pages whatsoever. Boards are clean with a little shelf wear. A few ageing spots to the top page block edges. The dust jacket is good with some loss to the edges and is price clipped. This is the much scarcer UK first edition which is exceptionally scarce signed (far more common is the US first edition). The book comes with a brief note of provenance from the previous owner. As is correctly stated, the Lindbergh couple, following the kidnapping of their young son ('the crime of the century') relocated to the UK for a few years to escape the media onslaught back in their home. During their stay in Britain there was opportunity to sign a few UK copies such is in this example. This book tells the story how the couple crosses the Atlantic by plane from Africa to South America in 1933. Anne Morrow wrote the book and Charles wrote the foreword and provided the maps. The book won the National Book Award for Nonfiction in The US and was a bestseller back in those days. Charles Lindbergh was the first man to cross the Atlantic in a plane from New York to Paris in 1927. The flight took 33 1/2 hours in the 'Spirit of St Louis'.
