(H/B) A HISTORY OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR IN 100 MAPS
Εκδότης: BRITISH LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5252-0168

Whilst the First World War had seen an exceptional growth in the use and production of military cartography, the global conflict that followed employed maps, charts, reconnaissance, radar, sonar and the systematic recording and processing of geographical and topographical information on an unprecedented scale. It is impossible to understand the events and outcomes of the Second World War without deep reference to mapping at all levels. Maps themselves became the weapons and had a decisive impact. In this highly original work Jeremy Black, ...

Εκδότης: BRITISH LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5252-0075

No observer, ignorant of the situation, would have guessed that death lurked nearby, and that only a little distance from the glitter of silver and glass and the hum of voices two victims lay silent on a studio floor.

EERIE TALES FROM THE WEIRD CITY
Εκδότης: BRITISH LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5252-0157

'Outside, where the air was foggy, the square was noiseless, save for an occasional hoot of a motor passing into the streets. By degrees I found the light growing rather dim, as if the fog had penetrated into the room...' As the smoky dark sweeps across the capital, strange stories emerge from the night. A s?ance reveals a ghastly secret in the murk of Regent's Canal. From south of the Thames come chilling reports of a spring-heeled spectre, and in Stoke Newington rumours abound of an opening to another world among the quiet alleys. Join E...

A bold and nuanced story of colonial oppression, social deviance and tattooing in the age of social media, it features original tattoo designs from London-based tattoo artist Luca Ortis, as well as illustration from the British library collections.

Εκδότης: BRITISH LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5252-0060

"The death was an odd one, it was true; but there was after all no very clear reason to assume it was anything but natural." In the winter of 1942, England lies cold and dark in the wartime blackout. One bleak evening, Councillor Grayling steps off the 6.12 from Euston, carrying GBP120 in cash, and oblivious to the fate that awaits him in the snow-covered suburbs. Inspector Holly draws up a list of Grayling's fellow passengers: his distrusted employee Charles Evetts, the charming Hugh Rolandson, and an unknown refugee from Nazi Germany, a...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5252-0175

A third title from John Dickson Carr's incredibly popular 'Inspector Bencolin' series, this story takes place between previous British Library Crime Classic titles It Walks By Night and Castle Skull.

(H/B) THE GHOST STORIES OF M. R. JAMES
Εκδότης: BRITISH LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5252-0093

The Ghost Stories of M. R. James collects the tales that best illustrate his quiet mastery of the ghost story form. Running through each of these stories is a slowly escalating sense of unease and dread, which ultimately shifts into the wildly uncanny. James' characters exist in a world of ancient objects whose atrocious histories begin to repeat when they are disturbed, and the blinkered repression common to James' narratives only amplifies the shock of the spectral appearance. (From the publisher)...

A RHINELAND MYSTERY
Εκδότης: BRITISH LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5252-0146

In Castle Skull, John Dickson Carr presents another ingenious locked-room mystery, steeped in the same haunting atmosphere as his macabre classic It Walks by Night. The great magician, Maleger, has bought Schloss Schadel (Castle Skull) on the Rhine and has transformed it into a fitting abode for his stage persona, replete with all the trappings of Gothic romance. When a man is seen atop the battlements, running aflame and then plunging to his doom, the foreboding reputation of the castle seems to have become reality. And when Maleger himse...

(P/B) CHECKMATE TO MURDER
A SECOND WORLD WAR MYSTERY
Εκδότης: BRITISH LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5252-0152

This crime classic is a spiritual successor to E. C. R. Lorac's Murder by Matchlight, one of the British Library Crime Classics' most popular titles from recent years (with Crossed Skis published in Spring 2020). It is a fantastically tight and twisty mystery set during the Second World War in London. The British Library is one of the only publishers currently re-releasing Lorac's work as they are increasingly difficult titles to find and very expensive secondhand. On a dismally foggy night in Hampstead, London, a curious party has gathere...
