Tropical Pasture Utilisation., Humphreys, L.R.
101 Humphreys, L.R. Tropical Pasture Utilisation.
Cambridge University Press 1991 0521380308 / 9780521380300 First Edition Pictorial laminated boards As New 
A few illustrations, large slim 8vo, pp xii, 206, pictorial laminated boards, a very good copy, the small address label of Dr Peter Moore on the half-title, otherwise virtually as new. [Recent research suggests that the application of the old concepts of pasture management developed in Europe, USA and South Africa have been unsuccessful in the Tropics; in some areas under-utilisation has resulted in poor animal output and low economic returns, whereas in other areas overgrazing has resulted in soil erosion and weeds. This book sets out to examine the problems involved in the utilisation of tropical and subtropical pastures and to explain how pastures may be managed to meet the requirements of both plants and animals for growth and replacement. Following an overview of the livestock systems of the tropics, the effects of grazing animals on the edaphic, biotic and climatic environment of the pasture are described. The response of the animals to the available pasture are discussed in terms of pasture attributes of nutritive value and sward structure, selectivity and grazing behaviour. Methods for attaining continuity of forage supply are also described. The author, Professor L. R. Humphreys, has been involved for many years in extensive research of tropical and subtropical pastures. A central objective of his work has been to effect a synchrony between pasture available and the forage requirements of the animal. This book is a culmination of much of his research and will be invaluable to all disciplines with an interest in tropical and subtropical agricultural practices.]

Essays on Crop Plant Evolution [Sir John Burnett's copy], Hutchinson, Sir Joseph
105 Hutchinson, Sir Joseph Essays on Crop Plant Evolution [Sir John Burnett's copy]
Cambridge University Press 1965 First Edition Cloth Very Good Slightly worn and frayed 
Illustrated, pp viii, 204, very clean internally, cloth in excellent condition, the dustwrapper is slightly worn and frayed, and with a small piece missing from the base of its spine. {The Evolution of maize, development of cultivated sorghums, comparative phylogeny of temperate cereals, cytogenetics and the evolution of wheat, history and relationships of cultivated potatoes etc.}. [From the library of Sir John Burnett, with his signature on the front endpaper. A distinguished academic career and a lifelong interest in fungi, botany and nature conservation made him the ideal champion for biological recording in the UK. He held that effective nature conservation could be achieved only if good quality information about species and their habitats was accessible to all who needed it - a belief that made him perfectly suited to run the National Biodiversity Network, founded in 2000. He was convinced that academics with high administrative posts must continue with some personal research, in his case on the myxomycetes.]

From the Waste Land, Hyams, Edward
106 Hyams, Edward From the Waste Land
London Turnstile Press 1950 First Edition Cloth Fair 
Small 8vo, pp 247, age-toned with some foxing throughout heavier on the preliminary pages and the last few), green cloth rather faded and rubbed, slightly marked. SCARCE. [Edward Solomon Hyams (1910-1975) was a British writer. Hyams was known for his writings as a French scholar, gardening author and socialist historian. Hyams' work was praised by both Anthony Burgess and Ronald Bryden, the latter describing Hyams as "the most exasperatingly gifted writer in England". Hyams was a keen gardener; he spent some time as a market garderner in Kent, and wrote several books about gardening. He was consulted by the government of Iran when the National Botanic Garden in Tehran was being built. He was also keen on viticulture, and tried to grow wine in Britain.]

Paris Masson et Cie 1925 Paperback Good 
Small 8vo, pp 273, uncut, paperback, a good copy. [Alan Davidson's copy, with his "fishy" bookplate. One of the most important figures in twentieth century culinary writing and scholarship, Davidson was a British diplomat and historian best known for his writing and editing on food and gastronomy. He was the author of the 900-page, encyclopedic The Oxford Companion to Food. In 1948, Davidson joined the Foreign Office and served in diplomatic posts in Washington, Tunis, Brussels, Cairo, the Hague; from 1973 to 1975, he was ambassador to Laos. While living in Tunis, his wife asked him to look for a cookbook on fish because she did not recognize any of the local varieties. Not being able to find one he wrote one himself. The original manuscript was copied with a stencil machine. A copy reached the British cooking guru Elizabeth David, who passed it on to Penguin Books, which published it in 1972 as Mediterranean Seafood. This was followed by Seafood Of South East Asia (1979) and North Atlantic Seafood (1979), for which he travelled throughout the region, gathering thousands of recipes from Portugal to Iceland.]

Ecological Management of Agricultural Weeds, Liebman, Matt; Mohler, Charles L. & Staver, Charles P.
113 Liebman, Matt; Mohler, Charles L. & Staver, Charles P. Ecological Management of Agricultural Weeds
Cambridge University Press 2001 0521560683 / 9780521560689 First Edition Pictorial laminated boards As New 
Large 8vo, pp xii, 532, (not illustrated), pictorial laminated boards, a very good copy, as new. The scarce original hardback edition. [Concerns over environmental and human health impacts of conventional weed management practices, herbicide resistance in weeds, and rising costs of crop production and protection have led agricultural producers and scientists in many countries to seek strategies that take greater advantage of ecological processes and thereby allow a reduction in herbicide use. This book provides principles and practices for ecologically based weed management in a wide range of temperate and tropical farming systems. After examining weed life histories and processes determining the assembly of weed communities, the authors describe how tillage and cultivation practices, manipulations of soil conditions, competitive cultivars, crop diversification, grazing livestock, arthropod and microbial biocontrol agents, and other factors can be used to reduce weed germination, growth, competitive ability, reproduction and dispersal. Special attention is given to the evolutionary challenges that weeds pose and the roles that farmers can play in the development of new weed-management strategies.]
