The Minbar of Saladin: Reconstructing a Jewel of Islamic Art
By Lynette Singer
Fine cloth copy in an equally fine dw. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered. Literally as new and still in the publisher's protective shrink-wrap.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 206 pages; 206 p. : ill. (some col.), maps, plans ; 29 cm. Summary: The minbar of Saladin, an intricately designed wooden pulpit, was one of the masterpieces of Islamic art. Made in the 12th century, on Saladins conquest of Jerusalem, it was placed in the al-Aqsa Mosque, where it remained for almost 800 years. Then, in 1969, it was burned down by an Australian fanatical Christian. This book charts the difficult process of reconstructing the minbar from scratch, a challenge made even more difficult by the lack of the necessary skills and the loss of the secrets of its original construction and decoration. Thus, it covers both Islamic art and the revival of lost traditional skills. Subjects: Masjid al-Aqa (Jerusalem) -- Minbars -- Jerusalem. Islamic art -- Islamic decoration and ornament. Minbars -- Jordan -- Sal.

George III: A Life in Caricature
By Kenneth Baker
Fine cloth copy in a near-fine, very slightly edge-dulled dust wrapper, now mylar-sleeved. Remains particularly well-preserved overall; tight, bright, clean and strong.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 224 pages; 224 p. : ill. (some col.) ; 26 cm. Summary: George III enjoyed one of the longest reigns (176-1820) in English history, but his reputation fluctuated throughout the sixty years, and its ups and downs were charted with unprecedented candour and wit by some of the great caricaturists. Here, Kenneth Baker draws on his own extensive experience of high politics as well as his personal collection of caricatures to give us a fascinating vision of how the English saw their king. Many of these amusing, often irreverent images have not been published before and they provide a new dimension to the story of one of the nation's most well known but least understood monarchs.

SCEPTICAL GARDENER
By Ken Thompson
Ken Thompson is a biologist but has been writing about gardening for over fifteen years, and has been a gardener for longer than he would care to remember. In this collection of articles originally written for the Daily Telegraph he sets out to examine some of gardening's most intriguing questions, and even manages to track down answers to a few of them. Why is that we seem to care more for common rather than rare animals? How can a gardener improve the flavour of their vegetables? And what do bees do that improves strawberries? From the difference between British and Spanish bluebells, why Matucana and High Scent sea peas are far superior to the Valerie Harrod variety, and the easy way to sex an earwig, Thompson provides an expert's miscellany of gardening knowledge, aimed at making you not necessarily a better gardener - but quite probably a far more thoughtful one.
