Groves, Derek.
The Roof of Africa on Wheels:
(Alfresco Books, 1999). Commentary by Jon Amos. Foreword by Chris Bonnington. Jon Amos became a paraplegic following a road accident when just 17. Since then he has advanced the awareness of what a person with a disability can achieve by the challenges he has personally undertaken, raising thousands of pounds for charity in the process. In 1998 he attained an altitude record by someone in a wheelchair - 16,040 feet up Mount Kilimanjaro. This book vividly describes the preparation and actual ascent by Jon and the team. With a fascinating selection of colour photographs, this story of Jon's grit and determination, and the dedicated teamwork of those who accompanied him, makes inspiring reading. Paperback. Fine. 104pp. Order No. NSBK-A6269

Suffragette Postcard, Original Real Photographic.
Amendment Float. Suffragettes' Parade: March 3rd 1913. Washington DC
(I. & M. Ottenheimer, Baltimore, MD, 1913). An original real photographic postcard for collectors of original suffragette / Votes for Women memorabilia. On March 3, 1913, the National American Woman Suffrage Association - NAWSA - organised a woman suffrage parade and demonstration in Washington DC. (Pennsylvania Avenue). It was timed to coordinate with Woodrow Wilson's presidential inauguration, the following day. The marchers were jeered and attacked, and had to fight their way through the mob, and the resulting publicity focused the country's attention on the issue of Woman Suffrage. This is an original, contemporary postcard, issued at the time. A horse-drawn float carries the words: "We Demand an Amendment to the Constitution of the United States Enfranchising the Women of the Country". A suffragette rides alongside on a white horse, and crowds of bystanders watch the float go by, from underneath a marquee / cloth verandah. On the back of the card, there's a handwritten contemporary message in ink. There was about four hundred thousand people on the avenue that day. There are 325,000 population in this city [Washington], and we had about 300,000 visitors". The card has not been posted and there is no stamp or postmark. Published by I. & M. Ottenheimer, Baltimore, MD. Front of card is somewhat soiled, with wear to edges and corners. There's a large round coffee stain to the top right, a small crease bottom left, and a few light scratches. Rear is browned with a little brown staining top edge. Otherwise the card is in good condition. Electronic image has been watermarked with the word "protected", to prevent image theft. This, of course, is not present on the card itself. Front of card is somewhat soiled, with wear to edges & corners. Large round coffee stain top right, crease bottom left, & a few scratches. Rear browned. Browning top edge. Good. pp. Order No. NSBK-A14967
