        Edwardian Polo Match

      Italy, 1990. Oil on copper. Marco Ceri lives in Northern Italy where he paints in oil on copper pictures in a very specific genre all his own. They are paintings of English people engaged at polo, golf or tennis during the Edwardian era. A great deal of research provided a high degree of accuracy to every aspect of these scenes including, of course, the attire and sports equipment, but even the postures and demeanors of the participants. The accuracy of the elements however does not intrude on the overall delight expressed in these tableaux. The artist keeps a low profile, enjoying his virtual anonymity. He considers himself a craftsman, who by limiting his sphere of activity, brings that craft closer and closer to perfection.

        Germany and the Second World War: Volume 1. The Build-up of German Aggression: Vol 1. A fine first edition (thus).

      Clarendon Press 1990 - This is a fine, first English printing of this hugely important and impossibly difficult work to find. Although listed as an American publication, the copies issued in the UK (as this one was) were printed in Essex. The book is in quite magnificent condition and is without fault or blemish with the exception of a few very slight, almost imperceptible, toning spots to the top edge of the page block. Otherwise, the page block is white, tight and square. The navy blue boards are pristine as is the gilt lettering to the spine. The front end papers present a double page map showing the geographic changes to Europe between 1935 and 1939. The rear end papers present a map showing German Political and Economic Influence at the Outbreak of The Second World War. The unclipped dust wrapper is also fine; bright, complete and unmarked. The same dust wrapper was used for both the USA and British editions and thus shows no price. It is now protected by an acid free, removable archival cover. The book presents as new and unread. Generally regarded as one of the most authoritative and accurate historical works on the Second World War, the book was written by four eminent German historians (including Deist and Volkmann) and edited by the German Research Institute for Military History. This is Volume 1 of what was intended to be a ten volume series but consisted eventually of thirteen volumes. The preparation of this series has taken over thirty years and all volumes have not yet been translated. Volume 1 examines the systematic preparation for War by Germany from the outset of Nazi rule, through re-armament and the Nazification of German society at all levels, to the outbreak of the Second World War. As with most publications on the Second World War, authored by Germans, it lays the claim that the vast majority of the German people did not support Adolf Hitler and were opposed to the War. Many learned American historians paint a quite different picture. However, what cannot be denied is that this is arguably the most intensively researched and documented work on the early stages of German aggression. It has been described as a work of “unparalleled scope and authority”. Very few of these original books were purchased privately; most went to libraries and academic institutions. Copies of the first printing that are occasionally presented for sale are invariably ex library copies. This copy is from an estate that contained quite the most comprehensive library of books on the Second World War that could be imagined. It consisted of over 400 volumes, carefully shelved. We doubt this book has been opened. This is an opportunity to obtain a monumentally rare book that will grace any library or collection of historical works on the Second World War, indeed the 20th century. The images you see are high resolution scans and photographs of the actual book. The book will be dispatched via the Royal Mail in protective packaging. We do not charge postage to buyers within the UK. Those from outside the UK are asked to contact us before purchasing. We offer a 7 day no quibble full refund if the item is not as described and shown. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
