LETTER WRITER (BLU RAY)

When Maggy Fuller, a rebellious and troubled teenager, receives an old fashioned letter in the mail from an unknown source, she can't imagine who could have so many wonderful things to say about her. After all, she is all but invisible to her father and a disappointment to her mom. So she tracks down the mysterious author of the letter and uncovers someone she has never met-but someone who seems to know her better than anyone else in her life.

LETTERS FROM LADYSMITH

Subtitle: Eyewitness Accounts from the South African War Editor: Edward Spiers Publisher: Jonathan Ball () ISBN-10: ISBN-13: Condition: Very Good Binding: Softcover Pages: 192 Dimensions: 23.4 x 15.8 x 1.8 cm +++ Edited by Edward Spiers +++ Edward Spiers, a leading authority on the Victorian British army, presents a selection of letters from the siege of Ladysmith (). These 250 letters, which were published in different British newspapers, provide crucial insights into contemporary perceptions of the battles that preceded the siege, the onset of the siege itself, and the desperate and bloody attempts to relieve the town.  The letters vividly reflect the feelings of junior officers and other ranks as they struggled to cope with the demands of modern warfare. Their eyewitness testimonies provide firsthand commentary upon the events in Natal that shattered the prewar confidence in Britain.   A passion for books and a passion for collecting fine editions was the recipe that created the successful group of bookshops in Johannesburg called Bookdealers. The group started thirty years ago with one store in the quirky suburb of Yeoville and has grown through the years to a total of five shops, plus our online sales. Bookdealers is well-known for its collectable and used books. We also have a large variety of remaindered books sourced from around the world.  If you collect from one of our five branches there is no delivery charge. We also offer postal delivery (when available) and courier delivery, subject to a quote.

A LETTER FROM PARIS | ERIC MIYENI

Subtitle: Essays and Photographs Author: Eric Miyeni Photographer: Eric Miyeni With Author's Inscription Publisher: Pan Macmillan () Edition: First Edition ISBN-10: ISBN-13: Condition: Very Good - Laminate lifting from bottom back cover and from a small portion of the front cover edge, but otherwise in very good condition. Binding: Softcover Pages: 163 Dimensions: 23 x 18.7 x 0.9 cm +++ by Eric Miyeni +++ In October Eric Miyeni, accompanied by his trusty pen and camera, spent two weeks in Paris keenly observing the city's architecture, its history, its people and its culture. The result is an accomplished collection of essays and black and white photographs that are quirky, often poignant, quite astute, really funny and truly different in their take on the subject matter. For once the tables are turned in a positive way: an African is observing instead of being observed, and passing comment instead of being commented on.   A passion for books and a passion for collecting fine editions was the recipe that created the successful group of bookshops in Johannesburg called Bookdealers. The group started thirty years ago with one store in the quirky suburb of Yeoville and has grown through the years to a total of five shops, plus our online sales.
