Philip Webb: The Pioneer of Arts and Crafts Architecture
Philip Webb: The Pioneer of Arts and Crafts Architecture

Edition: Paperback
Price: £25.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The best, 23 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fabulous book. Although Ms Kirk's work is available free on-line as a university dissertation, the illustrations in this book make it an exceptionally worthwhile acqusition. If it is an understanding of the life and work of Philip Webb you are seeking, look no further.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the job, 5 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hardly a new discovery as I've been using one for many years - this one was bought for a present.
The comment made about the 'filtered' coffee containing some sediment is accurate, and I overcome that by using a quarter of a sheet of kitchen roll paper above the Swissgold filter. Placing the paper on the top of the 'cup' of the filter, then pressing it into place with the upper part forms it into a perfect shape, without difficulty. Remove the upper part, then put the ground coffee on top of the paper and replace the upper part of the filter. In goes the hot water and a clear cup of coffee is obtained.

5.0 out of 5 stars A quality product, 30 Jun. 2013

In all respects, this Homescapes mattress topper satisfied our needs. It provided a depth of comfort desirable for a rapidly thinning person (a terminal cancer sufferer) using natural materials that did not promote a sensation of overheating. The price was reasonable (although now I find that 'low' price to be unavailable), the packaging strong and the delivery period far less than indicated in the offer. The temptation now is to fit one on every bed in the house.

5.0 out of 5 stars How did we manage without maps?, 7 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book admirably tells a story of how a need was met; to provide accurate information about the place we live in. And far, far more than that besides. This reader cannot recommend it highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars A proven product got better, 21 Sept. 2010
My original Sandvik folding pruning saw had served me well, and it had plenty of use over the twenty-plus years that I'd owned it, but a recent visit from a tree surgeon with a newer saw persuaded me to buy the equivalent Bahco product so that I would be getting results with less expenditure of energy. I have not been disappointed. The redesign of the saw's teeth is an improvement, and the handle, unchanged, is as comfortable to use as ever. If this one lasts as well as the original, I shall be well pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for use - brilliant price, 11 July 2010
The title of this review says it all, really. I'm not competent to judge the quality of its image other than to say its amazingly good, so if that is all you need from a web-cam, chose this one. I doubt if you will regret it and then you'll be able to pass on what you might have spent on a more expensive one to a well-deserving cause. Twice-satisfied!


The Rough Guide to Germany
The Rough Guide to Germany

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Reduced in content?, 3 July 2009
We found that articles that had appeared in earlier editions of the 'Rough Guide to Germany' were missing in this most recent one. Duderstadt, for example, described as a hidden gem was not included. Anyone hoping to get an update of a previously owned edition would be advised to check in a paper copy whether the region they intend visiting is covered in the detail they anticipate. Otherwise, a fine book (albeit with some strange use of English in places - but then, I'm hardly a teenager...).
