1 Wilson, A.N. Iris Murdoch - As I Knew Her
London Hutchinson 2003 0091742463 / 9780091742461 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Near Fine 
A Fine unmarked copy with age darkening to page edges with near Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. First edition, first printing. 275 pages. 25 illustrations. In 1988, Iris Murdoch asked the author to be her biographer. This book is a tribute to the novelist he knew for 30 years - this is not Iris Murdoch the Alzheimer's patient, but Iris the Murdoch the witty conversationalist, the emotional chaotic and, above all, the writer. Both sad and farcical, this completely personal attempt to set the record straight gives us back the fiercely intelligent novelist and professional philosopher, and will cause amusement as it ruffles feathers. **** NOT EX LIB ****

2 Wilson, A.N. Jesus
London Sinclair Stevenson 1992 1856191141 / 9781856191142 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Near Fine 
A near Fine unmarked copy (Fine apart from a book review pasted onto the half title page) with near Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. xviii + 269 pages. The Jesus of faith and the Jesus of history are two different beings. In this compelling study A.N. Wilson has tried to rescue Jesus from the tangles of Christian mythology and to present us with a portrait of Jesus the man. In the course of telling this story, A.N. Wilson confronts the stranger story of the origins of Christianity. This is a scholarly, yet wholly accessible study of Jesus, including a dramatic reappraisal of his arrest and trial.

3 Wilson, A.N. (edited by) The Faber Book of London
London Faber and Faber 1993 0571169872 / 9780571169870 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Fine 
A near Fine unmarked copy (Fine apart from usual age toning to pages) with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. xviii + 493 pages. First edition, First printing. London has always been much more than a capital city, and celebrated writer and anthologist A.N. Wilson here gathers a collection which reflects, not merely a sense of place, but also the teeming variety of the town which prompted Samuel Johnson to declare 'When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.' The book views the city through the eyes of writers as various as Dickens and Joe Orton, Dostoyevsky and Lenin, Boswell and Martin Amis. We see criminal London, low life and high life, beggars and politicians, Royal families, intellectuals and animals. PLEASE NOTE : A HEAVY VOLUME OF 0.9 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING COST
