The Diary of a Shropshire Farmer - A Young Yeoman's Life and Travels 1835-37 (Paperback): Peter Davis The Diary of a Shropshire Farmer - A Young Yeoman's Life and Travels 1835-37 (Paperback)
Peter Davis; Edited by Martin Davis
R445 R369 Discovery Miles 3 690 Save R76 (17%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Not many young farmers of the early nineteenth century left diaries that have come down to us, still fewer from Shropshire, at a time when country life continued much as it had since long before the Industrial Revolution. In June 1835, twenty-three-year-old Peter Davis set out from his home in the Teme valley on a mini grand tour. As befitted a son of the soil, his eye lighted first upon the current agricultural scene. Not surprisingly, however, it was the great cities of Liverpool and Edinburgh that came to take more of his attention. The young man's travel diary represents a vivid snapshot of his experiences in passing through the north of England and southern Scotland during the reign of King William IV. Complemented by Peter Davis' narrative, it describes the day-to- day events of his life at home during 1836-7, culminating in his beloved father's death. Before the advent of railways every journey from Peter's home in Burford was significant and through this diary, it has been possible to flesh out the history of a family and imagine ourselves living the lives of past generations. The diaries have been edited by one of their author's great-great grandsons. Martin Davis. He draws comparisons in his introductory essay between the changes affecting the landscape at the time of the diaries and those we face today. This wonderful book will be of interest to Shropshire residents, family historians and all those with a concern and love for country life in pre-industrial times.

Paul J. Cohen; Introduction by Martin Davis
R286 R232 Discovery Miles 2 320 Save R54 (19%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

This exploration of a notorious mathematical problem is the work of the man who discovered the solution. The independence of the continuum hypothesis is the focus of this study by Paul J. Cohen. It presents not only an accessible technical explanation of the author's landmark proof but also a fine introduction to mathematical logic. An emeritus professor of mathematics at Stanford University, Dr. Cohen won two of the most prestigious awards in mathematics: in 1964, he was awarded the American Mathematical Society's Bocher Prize for analysis; and in 1966, he received the Fields Medal for Logic.
In this volume, the distinguished mathematician offers an exposition of set theory and the continuum hypothesis that employs intuitive explanations as well as detailed proofs. The self-contained treatment includes background material in logic and axiomatic set theory as well as an account of Kurt Godel's proof of the consistency of the continuum hypothesis. An invaluable reference book for mathematicians and mathematical theorists, this text is suitable for graduate and postgraduate students and is rich with hints and ideas that will lead readers to further work in mathematical logic.

R462 R360 Discovery Miles 3 600 Save R102 (22%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Martin Davis is a leader in the field of Astrolocality astrology. His influential first book, Astrolocality Astrology [The Wessex Astrologer, 1999], is the authoritative textbook in the field. This book, 'From Here To There: an astrologer's guide to astromapping', is his latest work on the subject. Written with a deep understanding of the material, Davis presents a masterful portrait of locality astrology today, and its potential for the future. Davis begins this work with a first in astrological literature: recounting the history of the field (telling its story), from ancient Babylonia to modern times. He then introduces specific, essential works of contemporary astrologers who are utilising the techniques in their work. Davis shows how locations of significance and global hotspots can be identified astrologically, bringing the influence of space (where something may happen) into the usual astrological focus on time (when something may happen). This is a critical enlargement of astrological perspective for today's needs, were an understanding of influences around the globe is critical for our very well being.

Letters to Friends (Hardcover): Bartolomeo Fonzio Letters to Friends (Hardcover)
Bartolomeo Fonzio; Edited by Alessandro Daneloni; Translated by Martin Davies
R458 R428 Discovery Miles 4 280 Save R30 (7%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Bartolomeo Fonzio (1447 1513) was a leading literary figure in Florence during the time of Lorenzo de Medici and Machiavelli. A professor of poetry and rhetoric at the University of Florence, he included among his friends and colleagues leading figures such as Marsilio Ficino, Angelo Poliziano, John Argyropoulos, Cristoforo Landino, and Pietro Soderini. He was one of the principal collaborators in creating the famous humanist library of King Mattyas Corvinus of Hungary. As a scholar and teacher, he devoted himself to the study of classical authors, particularly Valerius Flaccus, Livy, Persius and Juvenal; his studies of Juvenal led to bitter polemics with Poliziano.

Fonzio s letters, translated here for the first time into English, are a window into the world of Renaissance humanism and classical scholarship, and include the famous letter about the discovery in 1485 on the Via Appia of the perfectly preserved body of a Roman girl.
