Oxford: Oxford University Press, (1998). Reprinted with Corrections. 
Octavo, blue cloth (hardcover), silver letters, xiii, 279 pp. Fine ,in a Fine dust jacket. From jacket: This is no ordinary look at the limits of science. Using simple explanations, it shows the reader that impossibility is a deep and powerful notion; that any Universe complex enough to contain consious beings will contain limits on what those beings can know about their Universe; that what we cannot know defines reality as surely as what we can know. Impossibility is a two edged sword: it threatens the completeness of the scientific enterprise yet without it there would be no laws of Nature, no science, no scientists...

London: Chatto & Windus, 1962. 
Octavo, red boards (hardcover), gilt letters, 197 pp. Former-owner bookplate; otherwise, Fine, in a Near-Fine dust jacket with light edgewear. From dust jacket: For a variety of reasons, the world-wide business of aviation is largelycarried on in the English language. Words, drills and announcements have become standardized. IT is not too rash to say that a new global vocabulary of aviation has come into being. Anyone wanting to serve in an airline in any capacity requires not only to learn the elements of his chosen profession but to learn them in English. Dr. W. S. Barry, who is in charge of staff training for British European Airways, has written a manual of aviation which will be in demand everywhere where airports have been planted throughout the world, as well as among the considerable number of those going into aviation every year in England. It includes chapters on cost, reservations, airport procedure, aircraft construction and engines, flight documentation, take-off and landing drills, duties of cabin staff, navigation, traffic control and maintenance. The essential facts are concisely and clearly stated. A special feature of the book is a series of dialogues and drills based on authentic recordings carried out at London Airport and under actual flight conditions. It contains drawings and diagrams prepared by a. B.E.A. draughtsman. There is a Foreword by the Chairman of B.E.A., Lord Douglas of Kirtleside. The Language of Aviation is published in association with the English by Radio department of the British Broadcasting Corporation.
