From the cover: Vegetarian cookery, once associated with the East, is now a firmly established part of our Western culture and eating habits. As meat-free cooking has grown in popularity and sophistication, we have borrowed a whole range of techniques and ideas from various cultures, creating an exciting tradition of globally influenced vegetarian cuisine. Rather than approaching vegetarianism from a dry, didactic standpoint, this major cookery book takes as its starting point the principle that vegetarian cooking is one of the most interesting, dynamic areas in food today and provides a collection of the very best vegetarian recipes the worlds cuisines have to offer.

Margot Fonteyn breezes into the marvellous Fact or Fable Book Shop in Peasedown St. John

Category: Biography
Margot Fonteyn by Meredith Daneman
London: Viking, 2004
Hardback with Dust Jacket over Black boards with Gilt titling to Spine
2nd impression. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: Margot Fonteyn born plain Peggy Hookham was dreamed into existence by the architects of British ballet: Ninette de Valois, Frederick Ashton and Constant Lambert. Carried to fame on a wave of wartime patriotism, Margots sense of duty rather than ambition propelled her forward. Yet her gifts were such that her pre-eminence would come to eclipse the careers of subsequent generations.

Ballet is a fairytale world; if Margot, like the pure and poetic heroine of Swan Lake, was a natural Odette, she would also have to contend with virtues raw shadow-side in the guise of Constant Lambert, Roberto Arias and Rudolph Nureyev the men who, like Von Rothbart, were to take possession of her heart.

Daughter of Empire: Life as a Mountbatten by Pamela Hicks
London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 2012
Hardback with Dust Jacket over Blue boards with Gilt titling to Spine
A Later Printing. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs;

From the cover: Pamela Mountbatten was born at the end of the 1920s into one of Britains grandest families. The daughter of Lord Louis Mountbatten and his glamorous wife Edwina Ashley, she was brought up by nannies and governesses as she was often parted from her parents as they dutifully carried out their public roles.

A solitary child, she learned to occupy her days lost in a book, riding or playing with the familys animals (which included at different times a honey bear, chameleons, a bush baby, two wallabies, a lion, a mongoose and a coati mundi). Her parents vast social circle included royalty, film stars, senior service officers, politicians and celebrities. Noel Coward invited Pamela to watch him filming; Douglas Fairbanks Jr. dropped in for tea and Churchill would call for a word with Dickie . After the war, Pamela truly came of age in India, while her parents were the Last Viceroy and Vicereine. This introduction to the country would start a life-long love affair with the people and the place.
