From 1895, 'Hobbies Weekly' brought much-needed practical advice and inspiration to bespectacled boys in V-neck pullovers, young ladies in sensible shoes and their pipe-smoking parents (of both sexes) throughout the Empire. Fretwork plans, model-making instructions and photography tuition rubbed shoulders with home-made insect repellent, conjuring tricks, milk bottle care, simple refrigeration and seamanship. We especially commend the series 'Kinks For Handy Men'. In a book of carefully-selected extracts from this august journal, The Ammonite Press is proud to reintroduce these solid values at a time when society couldn't be in greater need of guidance in such useful skills as ornamental glass-working at home and the production of bewildered rabbits from hats. How many young people these days can construct a carrier wave transmitter at the dining table? How much more satisfying would be the work of David Hockney had he made his own easel, palette and oil paints? This book is bound to appeal to any young person in need of a phenakistoscope, those women whose home is without a boot-cleaning stool and all men who wish to benefit from the advice given in a 1950s series of articles entitled: 'Please The Wife'.

First published in 2003. Hewett Cottrell Watson was a pioneer in a new science not yet defined in Victorian times – ecology – and was practically the first naturalist to conduct research on plant evolution, beginning in 1834. The correspondence between Watson and Darwin, analysed for the first time in this book, reveals the extent to which Darwin profited from Watson’s data. Darwin’s subsequent fame, however, is one of the reasons why Watson became almost forgotten. This biography traces both the influences and characteristics that shaped Watson’s outlook and personality, and indeed his science, and the institutional contexts within which he worked. At the same time, it makes evident the extent of his real contributions to the science of the plant ecology and evolution.

The fourth edition of Knight's Forensic Pathology continues to be the definitive international resource for those in training and in practice, covering all aspects of the medico-legal autopsy, including the cause and time of death, interpretation of wounds and every other facet of the investigation of a fatality. The contents are intended to lead the pathologist – and in some countries, the non-pathologist – through the procedures needed in the examination of a body found under obscure, suspicious or even criminal circumstances. Although police procedures and the habits of pathologists may vary from country to country, the philosophy and techniques presented in this book offer a guide to good practices that can be modified according to local circumstances. In this new edition the text has been thoroughly updated and is complemented by the addition of over 200 new colour illustrations. It maintains the praised tradition of clarity and readability established since Prof. Bernard Knight’s first edition was published in 1991, with an emphasis on the practical application of knowledge and research findings and the avoidance of over-interpretation.
