153 Graves, T. B. A. “I Saw A Rare Chance...” The Combat Diary of Billy Bishop.
Cornwall: MVR Publications, (1988). First Edition. 
Quarto, spiral bound (beige plastic spiral), photo. illus. linen covers, ii +92 pp + Appendices. Former-owner bookplate; otherwise, Fine. From Introduction: ...Since his death in 1956 history, once his ally, has not treated him well. His image once untarnished has been debased by accusations of dishonesty and, despite passionate attempts to answer these latter day critics, the mud has stuck. The question on which everything seems to hang centres on his combat claims in 1917 and 1918 -- claims on which his fame rests, because without them he would most probably have remained unknown. To some this is a distasteful debate because it treats war as a game where discussion of ‘scores' resembles a review of a sportsman's batting averages, as though scores were not measured in young lives prematurely terminated. Against such a sad background it does matter if Bishop's claims were honest or not and if we remember the sacrifices of so manry in these terms it debases us all. However, once we have restored a proper sense of priorities in remembering those distant events of 70 years ago, and for that matter of any other war, we should not forget that Billy Bishop remains a much maligned figure. Yet how can anyone now set the record straight without falling prey to the mass of ill-based opinion expressed for and against this famous Canadian over the years? What is the evidence and is there sufficient available to support a rational and unbiased assessment of his record in the Great War? The anwer to both these questions is contained in this book, which for the first time provides an authentic and fully substantiated account of Bishop's war. Armed with this information readers may for themselves judge whether he was worthy of the many honors bestowed upon him.

157 Grey, C. G. A History of The Air Ministry.
London: George Allen & Unwin Limited, (1940). 
Octavo, navy blue cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, folding charts, 319 pp. Near-Fine, with former-owner bookplate; in a Very Good+ dust jacket with darkened spine. From dust jacket: Of the various Ministries which deal with the King's Fighting Forces the Air Ministry is the youngest. But many people, especially among the younger generation, consider that it is the most important, because Power Plitics in these days are largely Air-Power Politics. This book deals with the Air Ministry in three parts. The first part is a brief and necessarily superficial but at any rate informative history of how the Air Ministry came into being during the War 1914-18, by separating the Royal Naval Air Service from the Navy and separating the Royal Flying Corps from the Army and turning them into the Royal Air Force, with a Ministry of its won, which ranks with, but after, the Admiralty and the War Office. The second part of the book is an explanation of the organisation of the Air Ministry, and a review of the work which is done by the numerous departments into which it is divided. The third part is a record of what the Air Ministry has done since it came into being. The Air Force nearly ceased to exist after the War 1914-18. Sir Samuel Hoare as Air Minister and Sir Hugh Trenchard as Chief of the Air Staff began to rebuild it in 1923.
