Summary

This vintage book contains a comprehensive guide to the problems of geometry and measurement encountered by sheet metal workers. It comprises a series of examples that show the working out of the circumferences, areas, and capacities for various shapes-an exercise that is intended to enable the student to deal with any ordinary problem that may arise in the workshop. Contents include: "Length of Material Required for a Round Pipe", "Amount of Material for a Square Pipe", "Length of Perimeter of a Hexagon", "Square and Circular Sections of Pipe of given Dimensions", "Length of Side of a Square to be Enclosed by a Given Circle", "Length of Arc when Angle and Radius are Known", "Amount of Material for an Ellipse when Length and Width are Given", et cetera. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on metal work. This book was first published in 1913.

    Witty and enchanting, the second novel from the well-loved actress and Sunday Times bestselling author of Not Quite Nice follows the hilarious exploits of retired expats in the South of France 
     
    Somewhere on the French Riviera, tucked between glitzy Monte Carlo and Cannes' red-carpets, lies the sleepy town of Bellevue-Sur-Mer. Sheltered from the glittering melee, it is home to many an expat – although it 
    hasn't proved as peaceful as expected. Now an enterprising band of retirees has resolved to show it's never too late to start afresh, and open a restaurant. 
     
    Snapping up a local property and throwing themselves into preparations, Theresa, Carol, William and Benjamin's plans are proceeding unnervingly well. But when Theresa encounters a mysterious intruder, she begins to wonder what secrets the building is concealing. 
     
    Meanwhile Sally, an actress who fled the stage to live in quiet anonymity, has decided not to be involved. She's far too busy anyway, shepherding around a gaggle of A-listers including a suave Russian with a super-yacht and a penchant for her company. 
     
    As the razzmatazz of Cannes Film Festival penetrates Bellevue-Sur-Mer, its inhabitants become entangled in a complex pattern of love triangles and conflicting business interests, and something starts to feel distinctly oeuf. Finding themselves knee-deep in suspicion and skulduggery, the restaurateurs realise they can no longer tell who's nasty … and who's nice.
