Once again, the PBFA Sherborne Book Fair, which returns on Saturday 13th October, will be offering up some real quality gems; books that are both beautiful and intriguing. Over 20 exhibitors will be offering books, some such as the following three that display exquisitely decorated bindings.
Graham York of Honiton will be offering a two volume set of Nansen’s Farthest North by Fritdtjof Nansen who led the team that first crossed Greenland interior in 1888. Nansen famously quoted ‘the difficult is what takes a little time; the impossible is what takes a little longer’. His works are always popular and this 2nd edition UK 1898 set priced at £ 150 is in great condition.
Another book with a lovely binding with lacquered paper with floral display is a volume of Byron’s poetical works published circa 1860 by Gall and Inglis, is being offered for sale by Peter Foster of Frome Bookshop, for £50.
An exceptional edition of Moby Dick by Herman Melville is being sold by Karen Jakobsen of Bond Books. Although this famous novel about Captain Ahab’s mission of revenge against a whale that bit one of his legs off at the knee, was originally written in 1851, Karen has a much sought after and beautiful edition from 1930 with an art deco pictorial design in silver and black with woodcuts by Rockwell Kent which she is selling for £120.

On this day Sherborne Silks, a Women's Soft Ball Cricket Team, based at Sherborne Cricket Club, Gainsborough Hill, Sherborne, will be hosting a Women's Soft Ball Cricket Festival, which is open to any women aged 13+ whether they have played cricket before or not.
There will be between 80 and 100 women attending, all from different backgrounds and sporting abilities. Even within our own team we have players aged 13 - 50+ and players who, until very recently hadn't even picked up a cricket bat.
As a team, Sherborne Silks, were set up by Caroline Durston in 2017, and are supported by the whole of Sherborne Cricket Club. The Senior men's teams are particularly supportive and have helped to coach and encourage us over the past year. Even some of the younger players have stayed on, after their practice, to help us.
Women's Soft Ball Cricket, itself, was set up, in England, last year by the ECB as a way of encouraging more women into sport. Thousands of women, took part in hundreds of festivals last year and, this year Sherborne are hosting their first ever Festival.
Any woman, whether already part of a team, or not, can enter into the festivals and can expect a really friendly welcome.
There will be, not only 4 matches playing at once, but also a BBQ, family friendly activities, coaches on hand to give out tips and the guarantee of smiling faces and lots of fun.
If you would like any more information about the festival then please contact myself, or Caroline Durston (our coach, player, junior team coach and Welfare Officer) at SherborneCricketClub@outlook.com. You can find out more about the festivals in general from the Dorset County Cricket Board website and the ECB website.
Tickets £5 from Olivers Cafe top of Cheap St Sherborne, or from Abbey 104.
Taff will be playing with Flatland boogie band for the very last time as he sails off into the sunset to retire and hang up his trusty guitars. After almost 40 years of gigs in Blues, Rock, Country, Rockabilly and cabaret bands its time to call it a day.
