The Great Rebellion, 1642-60 (History)
The Great Rebellion, 1642-60 (History)
by Ivan Roots
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Cromwell centre stage, 10 Jun. 2015
This is a classic account, but be sure to get the latest edition (2009 I think) if you are buying it. If you want a book mainly about the Civil War, this is not it. The account of this is good but brief. Where it excels is in examining the quest to establish a stable and effective republican regime in the 1650s. Roots, who died in 2015, was a student of Christopher Hill, the great Marxist writer on the period, but his emphasis is very different, looking at the constitutional experiments rather than the popular movements. Roots strongly believed in the central importance of Cromwell himself in British political history and this book is his vindication of that belief. I'd hate to be without this book and I'd hate it if it were the only book on the period.

Good value. About half a jar gave the whole suite a real boost. Noticeably softer and improved in colour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality and quantity, 26 Mar. 2015

Shade almost exactly right for my sofa, but a great colour kit to adjust it. Easy to apply and resilient. The dog is not making much impression yet and there's a lot left for many more uses.

Straightforward purchase: right toner, right price, next-day delivery (despite much longer predicted delivery period).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent intermediate instrument, 6 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This proved highly satisfactory to my granddaughter, who immediately took to the tone and feel of the instrument. It was also praised by her teacher. Very good value. You can buy better, but only for a lot more money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good at the price, 18 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is not a professional quality case for a gigging musician - perhaps a superfluous comment at this size and price, although it is described as a gigbag. It has no padding and it would soon fail in heavy use. It is, however, very decent protection for a 3/4 size guitar that a child is using at home and for lessons, warding off dust and minor bumps, and possibly keeping even smaller fingers at bay. There's a useful front pouch to take books or sheet music, perhaps a tuner and a few plectra. Decent value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought for a 9-year old as a supplement to lessons ..., 18 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for a 9-year old as a supplement to lessons at school, this proved instantly popular. It is simple, but it does at least employ all six strings and it is well-structured, with clear instructions on how to play chords and example tunes from an early stage. Hard to beat at a very fair price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Elementary and good as such, 18 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can't really complain, as this is advertised as a basic kids' starter book. However, it really is elementary, using only four strings. My 9-year old, five lessons into learning the instrument in a school club, was already beyond it, so it's a good job I bought a more grown-up manual at the same time. However, if you are buying a guitar as a present for a child and want to put something helpful with it, this is probably the book for you. We'll keep it for the younger child.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price, 18 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Exactly what we expected. The price is not much more than the postage and you get a full set of plectra. The seller can hardly be accused of subterfuge, as there is no actual description. I doubt Clapton buys them, but they suited a learner just exploring the instrument perfectly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value, 18 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It has no padding, but it's sound, quite well made for the price, and fine for giving a basic level of protection for a child's instrument. Great for home and school, not suitable for gigs: what did you expect at this price? So long as you know what you are buying, it's a great bargain.
