Description:
New York: Argophile Press, 1958. xi, 241 pp, 8vo (9 1/4" H), gray cloth with black lettering on spine and front board, light gray endpapers. Number 4 of the first, limited edition of 75 copies, signed by Cummings. B&w illustrations. "This book consists of a cluster of epigrams, forty-nine essays on various subjects, a poem dispraising dogmata, and several selections from an unfinished play. Taken ensemble, the forty-nine astonish and cheer and enlighten their progenitor. He's astonished that, as nearly as anyone can make out, I wrote them. He's cheered because, while re-reading them, I've encountered a great deal of liveliness and nothing dead. Last but not least; he's enlightened via the realization that, whereas times can merely change, an individual may grow." From the author's Foreword. There is a previous owner's erased pencil signature mark at the top of the free front endpaper (some light thinning to the paper) and a very slight indentation of the… Read more

Description:
Philadelphia: Chilton Books, 1966. 313 pp, 8 1/4" H. B&w photographs. "Publication of this first biography ever written about E. Nesbit (1858-1924), whose books for children have delighted readers young and old, is a literary event of major importance. Mrs. Langley Moore has written a new introduction to the present edition, telling a number of things that had to be omitted from the original work, when so many of E. Nesbit's contemporaries or members of her family were still alive. Also, the entire book has been revised and relevant material that either had to be left out originally, or has been discovered since, has been added. Edith Nesbit married Hubert Bland, a young journalist and enthusiastic Socialist, in 1880. He took the chair at the first meeting of the Fabian Society and both were active in the Fabian movement. When Bland, while ill, was defrauded by a business partner, Edith Nesbit was forced to earn the family's living. She began to write poems, short stories, and… Read more

Toronto: University of Toronto Press, 1989. 243 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w photographs. "(C)anadian science began to develop quickly (during and after the Second World War), and in the 1950s the rise in Canada's position as a scientific nation was phenomenal. The laboratories of the National Research Council in Ottawa became centres of scientific excellence to which young scientists from five continents eagerly gravitated. Much of this development was due to the ability, vision, and enthusiasm of Ned Steacie, president of the NRC from 1952 to 1962. (This book) recounts a classic case of the right man in the right place at the right time. Under Steacie's leadership the NRC achieved an international status that scientific institutions around the world envied, and with a swiftness that has seldom been matched." Dust jacket has soft crease at top edge of front panel. NF/VG+. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Very Good+.

"Based on solid research and mammoth tours of the areas concerned, an impelling picture is painted not only of pre-columbian Mexico and the subsequent M exico created by the Spaniards, but also of the independent republic of Mexico which nineteenth-century Americans coveted so greatly. The book ends with an account of how, through the activities of American settlers in Texas and California and the machinations of President Polk, half of Mexico was seized and the states of Texas and California, along with New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Nevada and parts of Colorado, Kansas and Oklahoma were added to the United States..."

Only a great lover of horses, blessed with understanding of that noble breed, blessed with skill in words and touched w i t h m y s t icism could portray the wonder of that race. No man had ever seen before or would see again such a contest; the contenders are Rainbow, crippled, unable to race and dead of a broken heart - and Golden Ripple, Rainbow's twin, in th e z en it h o f he r tr aining, primed for winning and alive as an electric spark. They raced in the summer moonlight, swift, rhythmic, and beautifully they raced - not horses, but earth eagles. They raced as they… Read more

"When H.M. destroyer 'Screel' off Algiers is diverted to go to the aid of an aircraft in trouble, none of the crew has the least inkling that this incident is the starting-point of a long-drawn-out chase and a bewildering chain of strange adventures. In particular, Peter Watson, the 'Screel's' young sub-lieutenant, tumbles into more than one tight corner both at sea and ashore on the trail of the mysterious freighter in which two eminent scientists, captured by an unknown Power, are held prisoners. The chase, directed by Mr. Venners, unconventional secret-service agent, leads from Algiers to Cairo and Port Said and on into the Indian Ocean, where a terrible cyclone complicates the plans of pursuer and pursued alike. The enemy is ruthless and determined, the most formidable among them being a grossly fat Armenian, the spider at the centre of countless webs of intrigue… Read more
