A Conspiracy of Ravens: A Compendium of Collective Nouns for Birds

Hardback
by Oddie, Bill
'A murder of crows', 'a charm of goldfinches', 'an ostentation of peacocks': collective nouns for British birds have existed since at least the mid fifteenth century. They are thought to originate in texts about hunting, but have since evolved into evocative, witty and literary expressions, each striving to capture the very essence of the animal they describe. Some are portentous - 'a conspiracy of ravens'...

The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

Hardback
by Fitzgerald, Edward
'A Book of Verses underneath the Bough, A Jug of Wine, a Loaf of Bread - and Thou ...' When Edward Fitzgerald first published his translation of the poetry of Omar Khayyam in 1859 it had little impact on the literary world. But a chance find in a bookshop by a friend of the Pre-Raphaelites led to it being taken up by William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones, and from then on its popularity grew. Since then, i...
