Place Matters gendered geography in Victorian women’s travel books about Southeast Asia
Morgan, Susan
Rutgers Uni Press USA 1996 
 Papeback Susan Morgan's study of materials and regions previously neglected in contemporary postcolonial studies begins with the transforming premise that "place matters." Concepts derived from writings about one area of the world cannot simply be transposed to another area, in some sort of global theoretical move. Moreover, place in the discourse of Victorian imperialism is a matter of gendered as well as geographic terms. Morgan makes extensive use of theorists whose work on imperialism in Southeast Asia is unfamiliar to most American academics. This vivid examination of a different region and different writings emphasizes that in Victorian literature there was no monolithic imperialist location, authorial or geographic. The very notion of a "colony" or an "imperial presence" in Southeast Asia is problematic. Morgan is concerned with marking the intersections of particular Victorian imperial histories and constructions of subjectivity. She argues that specific places in Southeast Asia have distinctive, and differing, masculine imperial rhetorics. It is within these specific rhetorical contexts that women's writings, including their moments of critique, can be read. 600g + 345 perfect pp  Very Good/None issued

A Biography of Frieda Lawrence
Byrne, Janet
Bloomsbury  1995 
 Hard Cover Frieda's fascinating life & travels through England, Australia, Mexico. This biography defies the conventional portrait of Frieda Lawrence as love goddess and Earth mother, depicting instead a strong-willed, independent-minded, creative woman who broke every social and sexual taboo of her time. The book takes readers through Frieda's tumultuous life, from her aristocratic Prussian childhood through to her first marriage to a staid English professor in Nottingham, her wild affair with the cocaine-addicted psychoanalyst and free-love advocate Otto Gross, the scandalous abandonment of her husband and three children for the love of a coal miner's son who would become one of the 20th-century's greatest novelists, to her years at Mabel Dodge Luhan's artists' colony in Taos, first with Lawrence and then with her third husband, the handsome if hapless Captain Angelino Ravagli. Frieda appeared in every major novel Lawrence wrote during their 18 years together, from The Rainbow to Lady Chatterley's Lover. She was his most trusted reader and she had an anti-intellectual sure-footedness that helped shape one of the most famously embattled unions of the century.Ex-library with stamps & borrow slip (borrowed 7x) 504pp clean & white, binding tight.  Very Good/No Jacket

Valley of the Casbahs a Journey Across the Moroccan Sahara
Tayler, Jeffrey
Little, Brown UK 2003 
 Hardcover 335pp, photo section amidships, 650g packed to post. The Draa River valley, where Morocco meets the Sahara, is a place of astonishing natural beauty, jewelled with the remains of the ancient casbahs of ochre-coloured clay. From the moonscape gorges of the Anti-Atlas mountains to the mosaic of dunes that marks the domain of the Bedouin, it is an area of sumptuous oases and searing desert.In Valley of the Casbahs, Jeffrey Tayler describes his epic trip to follow the Draa from source to sea, travelling in nomadic style on foot and camel. It is a journey threaded with danger of all kinds: Tayler's immediate predecessor on the route was found dead of thirst in the desert; then there are the unexploded mines, the restricted military zones and the nearby ongoing war. And Tayler is hindered as much as helped by his companions: his argumentative and occasionally manipulative guides Hassan and Mbari, and the temperamental trio of camels.  Excellent/Excellent

TENT LIFE IN TIGERLAND and Sport and Work on the Nepaul Frontier
Inglis, The Hon. James M.L.A.
A. Hutchison & Son, Sydney  1888 First American Edition
 Bound Pictorial Hard Cover Described as "Twelve Years" Sporting Reminiscences of a pioneer Planter in an Indian Frontier District"....a sample extract > -Sanctity and pretensions of the Brahmins--Their power on the wane--Progress of modem thought--An enlightened Hindoo on the decadence of priestcraft--Beneficence of British rule. It is a trite observation that "one half the world does not know how the other half live," and certainly it is very applicable in regard to many of the modes of livelihood practised in what the poet calls the "gorgeous East." To the student of human nature, or to a contemplative philosopher, the mere nomenclature of callings in the Indian census would give rise to many curious speculations. There is, for instance, the Haddick, or Bone-setter, corresponding to our veterinary surgeon, but with this difference, that the Indian bone-setter relies chiefly on the efficacy of certain mantras or charms, and curious medicaments which have been handed down to him through a long series of generations, and which are supposed to possess some occult virtue, which, when applied under certain conditions which are rigidly prescribed by tradition, will effect a cure.  Good to Very Good
