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.]

Taunton, New York & Chichester Research Studies Press, and John Wiley & Sons Inc 1993 0471942316 / 9780471942313 First Edition Laminated boards As New 
8vo, pp xiv, 471, laminated boards, a very good copy indeed. As new. From the library of Dr Peter Moore, with his small label on the front endpaper. [This book describes the origin, development and importance of Australia's native and introduced legumes and exemplifies how a plant family can affect the vegetation and environment of a country. The book brings out the difficulties encountered in introducing a commercial exotic species to a country, and the time and research that may be necessary before varieties and systems of management are developed to the point that a species plays a major part in a nation's agriculture. The experience and detailed information in this book could be applied by workers in other countries who are attempting to introduce commercial exotic species which are suited to their own country's physical and economic environment. It will also be of interest to all those concerned with the nitrogen cycle and nitrogen fixation.]

The Soil, Davis, B.; Walker, N.; Ball, D. & Fitter, A.
56 Davis, B.; Walker, N.; Ball, D. & Fitter, A. The Soil
London Harper Collins 1992 0021199041 Paperback Very Good 
Illustrated, small 8vo, pp 192, paperback, spine slightly faded otherwise a very good copy. [The soil is the work place of farmers and gardeners, but it is also a fascinating environment inhabited by insects that can leap into the air to a record height, multilegged scavengers that are vital to the decomposition of plant matter and the long, thin, entwining strands of thousands of species of fungi. Although soil plays a vital role in the functioning of the world, it has often been overlooked, mainly because it contains a huge range of different fields, all of which have become specialities in their own right. This book brings together specialists in these fields to give a broad overview of the staggering advances that have been made since Sir John Russel's The World Of Soil was published in 1947. The first two chapters introduce the physical structure of the soil. The next four chapters deal with the specific animals and plants and how they exploit this environment. The final four chapters describe how these animals interact and how man has used and abused the soil in his striving to gain more and more from this resource.]
