“Let’s start the year off with a good book. Choose one from this list. As a Panther in training in 1968 under London Williams and Robert Bay, we had to read more books that weren’t on the list.”

Are you insane? White, British. And she’s a salesman's daughter!

Watch the first official trailer for Amma Asante’s A United Kingdom, led by Rosamund Pike and David Oyelowo with Tom Felton, Jack Davenport, Nicholas Lyndhurst, Laura Carmichael and Arnold Oceng.

The drama tells the inspiring true story of Seretse Khama, the king of Bechuanaland (modern Botswana), and Ruth Williams, the London office worker that he married in 1948 in the face of fierce opposition from their families and the British and South African governments. Seretse and Ruth defied family, apartheid and empire — their love triumphed over every obstacle flung in their path and in so doing they transformed their nation and inspired the world.

The movie will open the 60th BFI London Film Festival on October 5th, and will be released in U.K. theaters on November 25th.

Turnbull Bindings: Red Crushed Morocco Binding by Zaehnsdorf

This copy of the ‘Memoirs of the Life, Writings and Amours of William Congreve’ (London, 1730) is in a red crushed morocco binding done by Zaehsndorf in 1914, one of Alexander H. Turnbull’s favourite bookbinders. 

The covers are tooled in gold with a single outer fillet and inner ribbon panel design. The geometric laced decorations were executed using a technique known as ‘pointillé’, where patterns are formed by means of punched dots. The central stamp is Turnbull’s armorial device.

The 18th (Royal Irish) Regiment of Foot at the Storming of the Fortress of Amoy, 26 August 1841.

Amoy was captured by the British in 1841 after a determined Chinese resistance. It was one of the five Treaty Ports (Guangzhou, Foochow, Shanghai and Ningpo) that were opened up to British commerce by the Treaty of Nanking in 1842 that ended the 1st China War (1840-1842). The treaty committed the Chinese to free trade, including the trade in opium. Hong Kong was also ceded to Britain.
