The Society of Jesus 1548–1773.
This is a catalogue of books by Jesuit authors and works relating to the Society of Jesus published between 1548, when Ignatius of Loyola’s Spiritual Exercises was first printed, and 1773, when the Society was suppressed. It includes an historical introduction by Alastair Hamilton, Arcadian Visiting Research Professor, Warburg Institute, University of London. Originally issued as our Catalogue 1226 in 1996, The Society of Jesus has been unobtainable for many years and has become sought after as a reference work. To meet this demand it has now been reprinted, in hardback, in an edition of 200 copies.

Bibliotheca Lindesiana. The Lives and Collections of Alexander William, 25th Earl of Crawford and 8th Earl of Balcarres, and James Ludovic, 26th Earl of Crawford and 9th Earl of Balcarres.
The Bibliotheca Lindesiana was perhaps the finest private library assembled in the nineteenth century. Nicolas Barker considers the library’s purpose and traces the circumstances of its formation in detail, in the process adding considerably to the biographies of the 25th and 26th Earls of Crawford, two highly significant figures in the history of collecting.

A Chronology of Antarctic Exploration: A synopsis of events and activities from the earliest times until the International Polar Years, 2007–09.
A historical chronology of all Antarctic regions compiled during 25 years at the Scott Polar Research Institute, University of Cambridge, by its former Archivist. This book lists the voyages to the far southern parts of the Earth, in particular to Antarctica, from those directly engaged in exploration and research, to sealers and whalers exploiting its resources, to those accidental discoveries made by early merchants blown off course. The record begins in 700 BC and continues to the present. Detailed entries for expeditions and related historical events provide a thorough and useful guide to the history of the Antarctic and its surrounding territories. A comprehensive introduction describes its evolution and structure. Maps and plates are included to show the development of knowledge of the far south, the locations of places mentioned in the text, and events of several selected expeditions.
