216 pp, 9" H. B&w plates, drawings, maps. Wraparound jacket art reproduces an aquatint of the death of Sir John Moore by T. Sutherland. "(The first book) to be devoted exclusively to the Battle of Corunna and to the short campaign which preceded it. Mr Hibbert has made extensive use of the many eye-witness accounts which survive in the form of official despatches, histories, diaries, memoirs and letters. With the aid of these, he not only shows a remarkable understanding of Sir John Moore and his fellow-officers, of their conflicting characters and views, but he also provides, through the eyes of officers and men alike, a horrifying picture of the hardships of this brief and bitter campaign. The narra-tive is made the more vivid by the numerous illustrations from contemporary paintings and engravings, and by the five specially prepared maps." Previous owner's small name stamp on front pastedown, top corner clipped off the front free endpaper, a few small light soiling marks on preliminaries preceding frontispiece, light edge wear - mostly on bottom edge.

8 Tsai Chih Chung, edited/illustrated by. Translated by Koh Kok Kiang. ORIGINS OF ZEN: FLOWERING OF ZEN IN CHINA. ASIAPAC COMIC SERIES.
Asiapac, Singapore, 1994, reprint. 
107 pp, 8 1/4" H, soft cover. ISBN 9971985551 B&w cartoons. "The 28th Indian Zen Patriarch, Bodhidharma, made a fateful trip to China in 527 AD. The Zen teaching he introduced flourished in a foreign country and reached its Golden Age in Tang Ch ina whereas Buddhism was to eventually die out in the land of its birth. Orthodox Buddhism was often under attack in imperial China as being an alien philosophy. However, Zen flowered because it remained down-to-earth and it addressed the c o n s c i o u sness common to all humanity regardless of race or culture. Tsai Chih Chung traces the origin and development of Zen in China with a light-hearted touch which is very much in keeping with the Zen spirit of absolute freedom and unbou nd ed c re at iv it y. " Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor edge wear. Near Fine
