3 A New System of Domestic Cookery; Formed Upon Principles of Economy, and Adapted to the Use of Private Families. A Lady (Mrs Rundell).
Thomas Allman. 9999 Hard Cover Good No Jacket 
A good 419 page hardback book with previous owners' names inside front cover & on front endpaper. Prelims & margins foxed. 5 pages of catalogue at rear - endpaper missing, and there may originally have been more catalogue pages. Undated, title page states "With the addition of many new receipts and embellished with 12 engravings" so it sounds like a later edition. Covers rubbed, some white paint spots on front, stitching a little slack. A fascinating book - no chips, but they do have "fried potatoes", and Laver (not laverbread) gets an honourable mention. Hours of browsing entartainment. No DJ, of course.

Half leather over textured light brown cloth, rubbed at edges. Joints and hinges perfect in and out. Appears to be a book which is lightly shelfworn but having seen little actual use. Entirely free of foxing, all page edges marbled. Covers very slightly bowed. 37 chapters, 25 full-page chromolithographs, plus many monchrome illustrations in text. Undated, but latest textual reference is 1878, so 1880 would be somewhere near.

Deep-Sea Demersal Fish & Fisheries., N.R. Merrett & R L Haedrich.
8 Deep-Sea Demersal Fish & Fisheries. N.R. Merrett & R L Haedrich.
Chapman & Hall 1997 0412394103 / 9780412394102 First Edition. Hard Cover Very Good No Jacket 
A very good 282 page hardback book. Owner's initials on front endpaper, otherwise entirely unmarked and unworn, could pass for new. 8 chapters, references, systematic & subject indices, numerous figures & tables in text. The worldwide collapse of commercial fish stocks on continental shelves has led to an unprecedented expansion of commercial exploitation in the deep sea. Unless heed is taken of ecological realities in the deep sea, which are different from those at work in shallower water, management of the expanding deep-sea fishery is doomed to failure. This new book examines the impact of deep-sea fisheries in the light of what we now know about fish, synthesizing recent oceanographic research concerning the individual and community ecology of fishes living on the bottom of the deep sea. The first part of the book describes the general environment, species composition and distribution of deep-sea demersal fish whilst the second part considers the attributes of potentially exploitable species and the problems associated with supporting deep-sea fisheries in a sustainable manner. Deep-Sea Demersal Fish and Fisheries provides an ecological examination of the present state of knowledge about deep-sea fishes and as such will be of value to researchers interested in deep-sea fish ecology and also environmental managers, government scientists and conservationists involved in marine exploitation.

14 Fish Stock Assessment: A Manual of Basic Methods J A Gulland.
Wiley. 1988 0471900273 / 9780471900276 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
A very good 223 page hardback book. Previous owner's initials in corner of front endpaper, otherwise unmarked. Just a touch of rub to corners of DJ, otherwise unworn. 7 chapters, answers to exercises, index, a few figures & tables. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations is one of the World's largest publishers in the area of food, agriculture, fisheries, and forestry. Much of this extensive programme is published in the form of technical reports of interest to highly specialized individuals. A certain proportion, however, is of much wider interest and it is the aim of this FAO/Wiley Series to bring such material to the attention of this wider audience. Fish Stock Assessment is the first book in the series, and is based on the experience of FAO in all parts of the world. It is essentially a practical book, designed to enable the reader to make his own assessments of the fish stocks with which he is concerned, and a list of exercises is given at the end of each chapter. At the same time the theoretical basis of the methods are made clear, and the limitations of different techniques are emphasized. The book describes the techniques used in assessing fish stocks, in evaluating the effect of fishing on the stocks, and the likely impact of different policies for developing and managing fisheries. The reasons why scientific advice is needed are briefly reviewed, as are the techniques developed starting with the simple models and progressing to the more complex methods, which require more data and more complex analytic techniques. Invaluable reading for scientists in fishery research and students in fishery science and marine ecology.

A near fine 192 page hardback book without inscriptions or other marks.

Labour & Rainfed Agriculture in West Asia & North Africa, Dennis Tully.
20 Labour & Rainfed Agriculture in West Asia & North Africa Dennis Tully.
Kluwer Academic. 1990 0792306872 / 9780792306870 First Edition. Hardcover Very Good No Jacket 
A very good 299 page ex-university library hardback book with the usual stamps. Completely unworn and, apart from the library stamps, unmarked. Appears to be unused. Part One: 5 regional overview papers; Part Two: 8 country review papers. Numerous tables. Rainfed agricultural systems are characterized by high seasonal variability in labour demand, and often by low productivity. As off-farm employment opportunities have grown, farm families often combine agriculture with other activities, even living away from the farm in some cases. This poses important challenges for researchers trying to develop new, more productive agricultural technology. Will labour of appropriate skill levels be available to implement new technology? What if new technology replaces labour? This volume describes the current state of farm labour in West Asia and North Africa and its relevance to technological change.
