Great service and excellent value for money. I sent my faulty key fob by recorded delivery and two days later has a new one that works perfectly. At such a relatively cheap price I will be sending my spare key for refurbishment too. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulously illustrated and informative book, 31 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Middle Kingdom Egypt (Hardcover)
This book was bought as a birthday treat and hasn't failed to delight. It covers a multitude of aspects of the Middle Kingdom, putting each of the exhibits in their context. Excellently illustrated throughout and offering the latest thoughts on this fascinting period of Egyptian history, I cannot do anything but highly recommend it. A transatlantic flight to view the actual exhibition would have been great, but most of the exhibits appear to be from the MMA itself, so hopefully will be there to appreciate in the future. Until then this book is the next best thing.


Film fantasy scrapbook
Film fantasy scrapbook
by Ray Harryhausen
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Whilst this summary of Ray Harryhausen's fantastic career has to some extent been superceded by later, 29 Dec. 2015

This review is from: Film fantasy scrapbook (Hardcover)
Whilst this summary of Ray Harryhausen's fantastic career has to some extent been superceded by later, more comprehensive publications, it is still a great book. It captures images from all his film creations up to and including The Golden Voyage of Sinbad, his latest film at the time of its publication. It is largely black and white illustrations only, but the scrapbook look is attractively done, making this a must for any stop motion monster fan or anyone, like me, who remembers Harryhausen's films and this book with great fondness.

4.0 out of 5 stars An exceptionally illustrated coffee table book, 17 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No book covering such a long period of military history can hope to cover the subject in depth and this is no exception. As many reviewers have pointed out, it is a superficial introduction to these conflicts best suited to the general reader who has little knowledge of the wars and armies concerned. I was left with the thought that the authors, given their military background, had pooled their collective knowledge rather than research more deeply, but I may be being unfair in saying that. The volume would benefit from tightening up editing and proof reading. I was interested to read that the union 3 inch rifled cannon was especially prized by the confederates when they captured one, but this fact was repeated on the next page and again in text accompanying an illustration; not necessary when space is tight. Much of the text was given to lengthy descriptions of uniforms and their various nuances, but this could have been reduced with appropriate illustrations. For example why describe the yellow piping on the rear of a union cavalry shell jacket without it being shown - this is an illustrated work after all. The plate described as the guidon bearer of the 7th cavalry is surely a post civil war infantry officer and not the iconic soldier I was hoping to see. But not to be totally negative, where this book really comes into its own is the high quality of the illustrations. A team of artists is credited with the plates; all are excellent but some, with highly realistic facial features, are truly exceptional, whether they are completely accurate or not. If you want a weighty, scholarly tome this isn't for you. If you want to relax with a nice glass of wine and enjoy soaking up the sumptuous illustrations you won't be disappointed.
