Biographical Dictionary of British Generals of the Second World War
The six years of prolonged world-wide conflict spawned some 340 serving generals in the British Army. A number are household names (Montgomery, Slim, Wavell) and others well known to historians (Horrocks, Dempsey, Leese). But the vast majority are forgotten except by their families and regiments. Yet there were a number of extraordinary characters, ranging from highly competent to downright inadequate. The Author has researched and written entries on all, varying in length, according to the subject's importance.

Deaf Persons in the Arts and Sciences: A Biographical Dictionary
Over the past 30 years, the number of deaf persons studying in colleges and universities has increased from several hundred to more than 12,000. Yet, attitudinal barriers continue to make it difficult for deaf people to enter some fields. This volume provides detailed biographical entries on 150 outstanding deaf individuals, highlighting their contributions to the arts and sciences. It includes several Nobel Prize laureate scientists, an Academy Award winning actress, poets, writers, world-class dancers, and a cadre of painters and sculptors. Some individuals are included for their leadership in education or politics or because they were the first deaf person to hold certain positions. Emphasis is on the subjects' contributions to the arts and the sciences, and particular attention is paid to how being deaf influenced their world view and personal direction. The volume includes many newly-discovered accomplished deaf people, and an appendix listing provides information on additional artists, writers, and scientists of note.

The Dictionary of Watercolour Artists Up to 1920: v. 2: M-Z
British artists have excelled in the medium of watercolour painting to such an extent that they have almost made the medium their own. Certainly the art was perfected in Britain and in turn influenced many artists and artistic movements both in Europe and North America. These volumes cover the work of some 6000 artists. Space is given to the more obscure artists, both professional and amateur, as well as to the great artists, such as Turner and Cotman. Whilst much of the information is purely biographical and factual, Mallalieu includes his own personal judgements of the artists' works and styles. By its nature watercolour painting provides a wider and more fertile collecting field than oil painting with reasonable prices for all but the very finest works of the great masters. These volumes should therefore appeal to the amateur collector as well as providing a means of identifying possible acquisitions to the dealer and auctioneer, for whom they are an essential tool of the trade.
