Hieronymus Bosch: Garden of Earthly Delights
Hieronymus Bosch: Garden of Earthly Delights
by Hans Belting
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended, 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is by the Germanically thorough Hans Belting, authority on this fascinating painting. I found it almost more interesting to have the book than see the painting, (although it is nice to do both) because the painting is so complex and the detail is so great that you really need time to digest it, and also it helps to have some commentary. Highly recommended, it's a reasonably compact softback, well bound with excellent quality reproductions. There are other books available but I would say this is the best.


Brazilian Folktales (World Folklore Series)
Brazilian Folktales (World Folklore Series)
by Livia de Almeida
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and unusual, 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not that easy to find Brazilian folktales, so this has some good ones. Not I have to say very thrilling, but presumably authentic, at least.

1.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced and pretty awful - but was gladly received, 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was on a kid's birthday present list. It was horrendously overpriced for what it was and its purpose seems to be to stand there in his room to be admired or occasionally carefully played with, or perhaps used for making Dr Who videos to put on Youtube. Oh, well, whatever you like... but the whole franchise is just a rip off, like all these things. The boy who received it was delighted with it, though, so what do I know???

3.0 out of 5 stars A very old Dandy book, 17 July 2013

This review is from: The Dandy Book (Hardcover)
This dated from the 1950s and was frankly a bit too old fashioned for today's children. OK for a collector, if in good condition.


The Beano Book 1991 (Annual)
The Beano Book 1991 (Annual)

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Carry on Reading Beano, 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The 1991 edition is not too out of date for modern kids, even though it's different from Beano now. Many adults will remember this from their childhoods, I have no doubt.

3.0 out of 5 stars A curiosity, 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Weird ideas on diet by cranky old Shelley - an interesting insight into the way people thought then I suppose. A curiosity worth reading if you like the period, the poet or books about diet.


The Beano Book 1974 (Annual)
The Beano Book 1974 (Annual)
by D C Thomson
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Yet another Beano book, 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not much to say about these Beano books. They are always popular with kids from 7 upwards. This one is quite old so didn't go down quite as well as some of the newer ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another one for the Beano book collection, 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Beano Book 1977 (Hardcover)
Just as well to have as many as possible since it guarantees the kids will have something to read when they visit!


Portrait of Suffolk
Portrait of Suffolk
by Mark Staples
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book, 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Portrait of Suffolk (Hardcover)
Lovely pictures in here, although nothing too out of the way or quirky. A nice gift book is how I would describe it, but you won't find many truly striking images. Better quality than most books of pictures I found that showed Suffolk, so I was pleased with it.


A short history of the narrow boat
A short history of the narrow boat
by Tom Chaplin
Edition: Unknown Binding

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful little book, 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A short history of the narrow boat
This went to add to someone's collection about narrow boats and was gratefully received. It had some useful and interesting background in it and was well written.
