Previously announced. Format & Price change When I grow up, will I be the King of the Jungle…?Curious, playful, and clumsy: Michael Poliza’s irre-sistible photographs of baby animals are so adorable that it is hard to imagine these same creatures grow-ing up into fierce hunters or nimble prey, battling it out for survival. This gift book is the first title of Poliza’s baby animal photographs, many of them published for the first time. From lion cubs in Botswana to baby chimpanzees and gorillas in Tanzania, penguin chicks on the Antarctic peninsula to polar bear cubs in Canada, Poliza travels the world in search of the most endearing wildlife babies. Whether in the African savannah or polar extremes, few photographers have come so close to their wildlife subjects. To achieve such proximity, Poliza shows masterful sensitivity and patience, not only towards the baby animals them-selves, but also with their fiercely protective mothers. From a frolicking baby elephant to a sleeping little lion cub, Baby Animals brings page after page of heart-warming images and tiny triumphs in nature photography.

Elliott Erwitt turns his trained eye on Scotland, going well beyond its glens and lochs to reveal a unique culture and national heritage. In 2013, Elliott Erwitt was asked to be a part of the distinguished Macallan Masters of Photography series. Armed with his trusty Leica camera, he embarked on an exploration of Scotland in hopes of capturing its people’s particular spirit and allure, calling it his “great Scottish adventure.” Going beyond what is simply picturesque, this magnificent collection of photographs candidly reveals both the sum and its parts of the varied landscapes, the characters—and of course, the dogs!—that are unique to Scotland.

Presenting 17 international customizers and their interpretations of the BMW R nineT, Soul Fuel reveals a new approach to customizing. A custom bike is, above all: unique. The sub-culture of the custom bike community and its trends are of major importance, not only for the motorcycle’s hardware, but also for the software associated with the lifestyle. Customizers deliberately reject a digitized and perfected world with something handmade and raw—a kick start for the imagination of all free spirits. With the market launch of the BMW R nineT in 2013, the unique Soul Fuel project started in earnest. Over the course of the nascent cooperation, the first selected customizers received an R nineT, which they were able to remodel and modify pursuant to their own vision. To date, 17 customizers have created fascinating customizations of the R nineT through Soul Fuel. Five additional projects are to follow in 2018. Introducing the bikes completed to date, the book Soul Fuel is an homage to the “customizing attitude” towards life. When we take a look into the workshops of the most innovative customizers, we can virtually smell and hear the welding equipment. We experience the creative process that emerges from custom bikes made on the basis of the R nineT, up close and personal—like when musicians cover their favorite song, and in doing so, place their own distinctive stamp upon it. With full passion and dedication, Blitz Motorcycles, 46 Works, El Solitario, and others create exceptional interpretations of an exceptional machine.

Mrs. Agnes Marshall (1855 - 1905) was the most celebrated cook of her day; the equivalent to today's TV celebrity chefs. She wrote four books: The Book of Ices 1885, Mrs. A.B. Marshall's Book of Cookery 1888, Mrs. A.B. Marshall's Larger Cookery Book of Extra Recipes 1891, and Fancy Ices 1894. These are considered to be some of the finest books of their type ever written, especially those on ices, of which Mrs. Marshall was the undisputed authority. Her recipes are clear, accurate, and well-illustrated. She ran a domestic staff agency, sold cooking equipment, and ran a successful cookery school. She even patented an ice-cream machine which could freeze in five minutes. As well as campaigning for better standards of food hygiene, she toured extensively, lecturing and demonstrating her techniques to huge audiences and she has been credited with the invention of the edible ice-cream cone, mentioned in her 1888 cookery book, in the recipe for cornets with cream. Prior to the edible cone, ice cream had been served in glass ‘licks’. The story of her amazing life is all too short, which sadly ended as the result of a fall from a horse in a riding accident at the age of only 49. As a result Mrs. Marshall has been largely neglected by historians, and is not famous today, unlike the ubiquitous Mrs. Beetonbut this may now be set to change with an exhibition entitled Scoop of the Century which will run from mid-June to September at Gasholders in Kings Cross ~ the world’s first ever exhibition exploring the history, science, art and mythologies of ice-cream ~ and which will also celebrate the life and work of this incredible culinary pioneer. To coincide with the exhibition Grub Street is producing a facsimile paperback edition of Mrs Marshall’s most popular work, The Books of Ices.

After Carol Bowen Ball underwent bariatric surgery she found there was very little practical information for weight-loss surgery patients and as a result she wrote the first (and to date only) UK bariatric advice and cookery book – Return to Slender. At the same time she launched BariatricCookery.com a website to support the same patients. A year later she wrote a sequel Return 2 Slender… Second Helpings. Both books have been widely praised by the professional bariatric community as well as pre-op and post-op patients. The recipes in The Bariatric Bible are designed and developed to help at every stage after weight-loss surgery. They are colour-coded to suit the 3 main stages afterwards. These are: the Red or 1st Fluids Stage, the Amber or 2nd Soft/Puréed Stage, the Green or 3rd Eating for Life Stage. They will have a nutritional analysis breakdown. This includes measured calories, protein, carbohydrate and fat levels. Recipes are also further coded for suitability for freezing and for vegetarian eating. A new bariatric lifestyle however isn’t just about food – it is also about exercise, changes in behaviour and relationships, adhering to essential medications; coping with unsettling situations that can de-rail the best of intentions, dealing with social situations like eating out; finding new ideas for a changing body through fashion and beauty advice; and making new healthier habits to replace old destructive ones. As a result the book will be the most comprehensive book of any currently on the market. The book will cover the types of surgery on offer for those who want to know more so that they (along with their bariatric team) can make the best choice from the selection available. It will also look at and advise on the many pre-op diets that are required prior to surgery – sometimes to lose weight as part of the qualification process and also as the liver-reducing diet prior to surgery itself for safe intervention. However, it will mainly focus on advice and recipes for after surgery to help the post-op patient maximise their best chance of long-term success with weight-loss and better health.

Over And Above

ISBN: 9781911621089

Over and Above was first published in 1919 soon after John Everard Gurdon, aged just twenty, had been invalided out of the RAF following a brief but incident-filled stint as a flyer on the Western Front. Piloting the Bristol F.2b with 22 Squadron, his first victory was on 2 April 1918 and by 13 August he had bagged his twenty-eighth. In between those dates Gurdon flew with gusto and élan, his exploits attracting the attention of such eminent fighter aces as James McCudden. Over and Above is Gurdon’s first and best book, repeatedly reprinted for two decades, variously titled Winged Warriors or Wings of Death. Billed as a novel, it is not so much that as a fictionalised account of his own service flying career, with names changed, incidents rearranged. True, it tells of ‘exciting raids over enemy lines and towns, desperate fights against fearful odds, chivalry shown to an unchivalrous foe…’ but the narrative turns darker as men become wearier, new comrades arrive and are killed, and those who remain try to hold onto meaning in increasingly unintelligible circumstances, a mirror to Gurdon’s own experiences. Written in the style of the era and by and for a class which put great store in maintaining a slangy, backslapping cheerfulness, no matter how grim things were, with chums wishing each other ‘beaucoup Huns’ before embarking on a ‘show’ in ‘beastly’ weather, this book is a classic to rank with Winged Victory by V M Yeates, and which should never have been out of print. This new edition retains exactly the original script but has been updated with an introduction by John Gurdon’s granddaughter Camilla Jane Gurdon Blakeley and an extended illustrated appendix by renowned historian Norman Franks.
