High Street by J. M Richards( Book )

6 editions published between 1938 and 2012 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1938, this classic book introduces the British high street, pairing the timeless illustrations of Eric Ravilious with an engaging text by architectural historian J.M. Richards. Shops include the family butcher, the coach builder, the cheesemonger, the knife grinder and the oyster bar. Only 2000 copies of the original book were printed before the lithographic plates were destroyed in the London Blitz. As a result, it has become one of the most collectible of all artist's books from this period. This beautiful facsimile edition features all 24 of Ravilious's illustrations in exquisite color and includes an essay by Gill Saunders, Senior Curator of Prints at the Victoria and Albert Museum, putting the book and its history into context. - Jacket flap

The atrocities of the pirates : being a faithful narrative of the unparalleled sufferings endured by the author during his captivity among the pirates of the island of Cuba, with an account of the excesses and barbarities of those inhuman freebooters by Aaron Smith( Book )

9 editions published in 1929 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1824, this firsthand account describes how, in June 1822, young English seaman Aaron Smith was taken captive by Cuban pirates when his ship was boarded en route from Jamaica to England. A skilled navigator, fluent in Spanish, and regarded as what was then acceptable as a ship?s surgeon, he was an attractive candidate for conscription. Forced to work as a navigator and participate in pirate boarding parties for ten months, he suffered mightily and witnessed unspeakable acts of murder and torture. He struggled between resisting the orders of the cruel pirate captain and acting against his conscience to preserve his own life from the wrath of the pirates. After failed attempts to get away, he managed to narrowly escape with his life, but was arrested as a pirate upon arrival in Havana. Smith was jailed in Cuba and then sent back to England in chains, where he found himself on trial for his life at the Old Bailey courthouse. The attorney general himself led the prosecution, with the captains of the ships boarded by Smith and the pirates as the principal witnesses

"Design is an excellent introduction to the work of two major British designers and artists, Edward Bawden (1903-1989) and Eric Ravilious (1903-1942)." "Featuring some previously unpublished images, this book presents, in over 100 illustrations, every aspect of their creativity, including advertising, designs for wallpapers, posters, book jackets, trade cards and ceramics." "Bawden and Ravilious met in the Design School of the Royal College of Art in 1922, members of a generation of students described by Paul Nash, one of their tutors, as belonging to 'an outbreak of talent'. Their shared interests in illustration led to experiments in print making. Bawden's early attempts at lino-cutting developed into a skill that he used until the end of his life. Ravilious quickly developed into one of the most renowned wood engravers of the twentieth century."--Jacket
