About this Item: Gollancz, London, 2000. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Dust jacket complete, unclipped. Original cloth boards with bright gilt titling on spine. No ownership marks. 224 pages clean and tight. Germs get a bad press, so we never hear their side of the story. What is life really like in their invisible kingdom? In this witty and erudite book, Arno Karlen tells the fascinating life story of the germ Borrelia burgdorferi (Bb for short), the microbe that causes Lyme disease. He takes us through its ancestry, its appearance, its environment, its sex life, its struggle for survival, and its adventures with other species, including us. Interwoven with Bb¿s biography are fascinating discursions on how life began, why we cannot live without bacteria, and how perturbed environments breed disease. Karlen also describes how perpeptions of microbes have changed through history, especially their unfair connection with dirt and suffering. And he pays homage to the pioneers of the microscope, who first saw germs¿ teeming universe, and to Linnaeus¿s beautifully constructed tree of life. The Biography of a Germ makes the world of microbiology absolutely riveting, and it will help to rehabilitate Bb¿s undeserved reputation. Exhilarating, entertaining and imaginative, this is popular science writing at its best. Size: 8vo. Seller Inventory # 143769

About this Item: Gollancz [2002]., London, 2002. Octavo, boards. First edition. The author's third novel is set in an "exuberant, far future, utopian, hedonistic, galaxy-spanning venue -- seems at first an homage to Iain M Banks's Culture, both universes being argued in terms of a non-scarcity economics, with nanotechnology-assisted Immortality, though without AIs in this case; but soon darkens into acerbic Satire, as the Fantastic Voyage undertaken by its protagonist (a man once a woman) uncovers a series of viciously irresponsible societies, almost (it seems) justifying his mission, for he has been freed from prison in order to commit planetary genocide." - The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (online). A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#94094). Seller Inventory # 94094

About this Item: Gollancz, UK, 1975. Hardcover. Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. Unless I am very much mistaken, this novel was first published by DAW Books in the USA in paperback, like most of this British author's other early work. Better known for later novels like THE CELESTIAL STEAM LOCOMOTIVE and FANG THE GNOME, it is my opinion that Coney's finest work was published by Gollancz, and there is none better than CHARISMA or, indeed, the wonderful CAT CARINA, in which Coney paid homage to the great Cordwainer Smith and his world of underpeople. This is a very fine, unread proof in clean, unimpeachable wrappers, a pristine spine and perfectly clean and untouched pages. AS NEW and complete with DUSTJACKET AND BOOKPLATE SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. This is a proof , NOT a hardcover. Signed by Author(s). Galley/Proof. Seller Inventory # 2637

About this Item: Secker and Warburg, 1938. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. No Jacket. 1st Edition. The First UK printing published by Secker and Warburg in 1938. The BOOK is in near Fine condition. The lime green boards are very lightly soiled. Mild rubbing to the corners and lower edges. The spine is only very slightly toned and the gilt titling remains very bright. Light pushing at the spine ends. Small bump to lower front corner. The text block is toned and there is the usual moderate offsetting to the end papers. Mild toning to the page edges. Free from inscriptions, erasures and markings. NO wrapper. A very presentable copy and in much better condition than usually encountered. In 'Homage to Catalonia', Orwell recounts his experiences as a soldier and disillusionment with totalitarian regimes. Notably, Victor Gollancz, who had published the English editions of Orwell's earlier works, refused to publish Homage to Catalonia because of its radical political stance. Instead, it was published by Secker and Warburg, the firm that would go on to publish Orwell's best known works - Animal Farm (1945) and Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949).

About this Item: Secker & Warburg, 1938, 1938. 1st edition. Hardcover. Near fine original green cloth, nice clean pages, a little spotting on the first and last couple of leaves, endpapers a little browned with original owner's bookplate on fpd, slightly offset on fep. Orwell's third book of non-fiction, in which he recounts his experiences in the Spanish Civil,War, after joining the militia to fight Fascism. But he came to detest the factionalism he found within this circle and his book was very critical of the communists in Spain, which led to Gollancz, his publisher hitherto, turning the book down and Martin Warburg agreeing to publish it. Overall, a very good copy indeed of this classic. Seller Inventory # PSHB7266

About this Item: London: Secker and Warburg, 1938. Hard Cover. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. First edition, first printing. Publisher's lime green cloth, lettered in gilt. About near fine, with some light rubbing to the extremities, minor toning to the spine, some faint soiling to the otherwise bright boards, minor offsetting to the free endpapers, otherwise fresh interior. Overall, a very clean and pleasing copy. Homage to Catalonia is Orwell's account of the Spanish Civil War that he wrote shortly after he escaping from Spain to France in 1937. After heading to Spain as a journalist in 1936, Orwell joined the Republicans in their fight against Franco's Nationalists; unlike other leftist foreign intellectuals, however, he joined the Workers' Party of Marxist Unification (Partido Obrero de Unificación Marxista, or POUM). In Homage to Catalonia, Orwell recounts his experiences as a soldier and disillusionment with totalitarian regimes. Notably, Victor Gollancz, who had published the English editions of Orwell's earlier works, refused to publish Homage to Catalonia because of its radical political stance. Instead, it was published by Secker and Warburg, the firm that would go on to publish Orwell's best known works - Animal Farm (1945) and Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949). Seller Inventory # GO20
