307 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). "On average, people squander forty days annually compensating for things they've forgotten. Joshua Foer used to be one of those people. But after a year of memory training, he found himself in the finals of the U.S. Memory Championship. Even more important, he found a vital truth we too often forget: In every way that matters, we are the sum of our memories. (This book) draws on cutting-edge research, a surprising cultural history of memory, and venerable tricks of the mentalist's trade to transform our understanding of human remembering. Under the tutelage of top 'mental athletes', Foer learns ancient techniques once employed by Cicero to memorize his speeches and by medieval scholars to memorize entire books. Using methods that have been largely forgotten, he discovers that we can all dramatically improve our memories." Light wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor wear and tiny tear at top of front flap-fold.

In San Serano, Joanna felt the terror strike, before dark hands were seizing her to kidnap her and take her elsewhere. In the Empire of Ferryth, Caris watched a wizard murdered by a figure that vanished into a tunnel of darkness. And abominations were crossing through the weakening fabric of the Void. And in the Silent Tower, where every stone was sealed and spelled against all magic, Antryg Windrose, student of the Dark Mage, was supposed to be going mad." 2. The Silicon Mage - 338 pp, 1988, ISBN 0345337638 - "When she betrayed her lover, Antryg Windrose to the Council, he had been sentenced to death. Then (Joanna) had believed his brain was possessed by the Dark Mage Suraklin, though now she knew that Suraklin had chosen Gary Fairchild. But guilty or innocent, Antryg was separated from her by the awesome Void between worlds, far from any hope of rescue. Nevertheless, she had to save him. Suraklin was planning to gain immortality by placing his mind in a computer that would get its power by draining the life-force from all on both worlds, dooming everyone to eternal misery and hopelessness. And only Antryg was strong enough a wizard to challenge the Dark Mage." 3. Dog Wizard - 389 pp, 1993, ISBN 0345377141 - "The Citadel of Wizards was under siege. Deep in the Vaults beneath the walled city, gates into inhuman realities were opening and closing without warning. Monsters emerged from other dimensions; and ancient, malign magics came to life under the influence of cosmic chaos. Someone was tampering with the Void. The Council of Wizards blamed Antryg Windrose, the rebel mage who had fled their justice to find haven in the City of Angels. Across dimensions, they reached out to bring him back - ." 4. Stranger at the Wedding - 341 pp, 1994, 0345380975 - "Kyra was a journeyman wizard, readying for her final testing before the council. But it was no mere case of nerves that had started twisting her magic. Something sinister was weaving portents of doom into even the simplest of her spells. Something fearful was invading her dreams with images of frightful evil. And Kyra woke to the chill certainty that her young sister Alix was soon to marry - and soon to die."

Cassell, London, 1938, first edition. 
263 pp, 8vo (8 5/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "This volume follows the author's 'Leaves From a Surgeon's Case-Book', which has had outstanding success. In its twenty chapters it emphasises the advances of the last few years in surgical metho ds, and the value of newly discovered ways of treatment, in a manner readily followed by the layman. It explains what science is doing for the alleviation of pain; the minimising of risk in even major operations; the vastly improved chances o f c u r e and recovery, and in it all inspires confidence by removing fear. Many examples are given of the ever-increasing victories accruing from laboratory research and the patient observation of results in practice. It reads like a benign rom an c e. Th e author, a famous surgeon writing under a nom-de-plume, has produced a timely book, of engrossing interest in its encouraging story of surgical and medical progress."

329 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). "Life is full of choices. How do we make them? Choice is a powerful tool to define ourselves and mold our lives - but what do we know about the wants, motivations, biases, and influences that aid or hinder our endeavors? Columbia University professor Sheena Iyengar, a leading expert on choice, sets herself the Herculean task of helping us become better choosers. She asks fascinating questions: Is the desire for choice innate or created by culture? Why do we sometimes choose against our best interests? How much control do we really have over what we choose? Ultimately, she offers unexpected and profound answers, drawn from her award-winning discipline-spanning research. Here you'll learn about the complex relationship between choice and freedom, and why one doesn't always go with the other. You'll see that too much choice can overwhelm us, leading to unpleasant experiences, from 'TiVo guilt' over unwatched TV programs to confusion over health insurance plans. Perhaps most important, you'll discover how our choices - both mundane and momentous - are shaped by many different forces, visible and invisible. This remarkable book illuminates the joys and challenges of choosing, showing us how we build our lives, one choice at a time." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine.

12 Lohndorff, Ernst F. Translated by Gerard Shelley. HELL IN THE FOREIGN LEGION. (TRANSLATION OF "AFRIKA WEINT".)
New York Greenberg 1932 First American Edition Hard Cover Good 
349 pp, 7 7/8" H. Brown cloth with dark brown lettering/emblem on spine. "In writing the account of my life as a member of the French Foreign Legion, I am aided partly by memory and partly by the blurred and faded scraps of paper which I carried about with me in the Sahara and the Atlas Mountains. I have no intention of perpetrating one of the usual tirades against France, for I have been all over the world and have friends of every nation. My reminiscences serve rather as an accusation against the conscience of the world and the League of Nations that such a thing as a Foreign Legion should still exist at all. How did I enter the Legion? As a volunteer like everybody else. No, I really was not dazed or besotted by the legendary agents of France who are supposed to menace the safety of Germany - I went of my own accord! - Unemployment, desire for warmth, bread, and a woman brought me to the Legion. I ran away several time before I succeeded in escaping from that part of Africa where the soil is saturated with the sweat, blood, and unavailing tears of tens of thousands of men - In one garrison life may be tolerable for a soldier who demands no luxury, because the men in command are human - But in another it may be hell on earth and the officers and subordinates like laughing devils poking the flames! My time in the Legion is engraved indelibly upon my brain. Luck, and courage born of despair, or Allah, the mysterious God of the desert, have saved me. Now let me tell you how it began- " From the Introduction. Ernst Lohndorff (1899-1976) was a German sailor/adventurer/author. He signed up with the Foreign Legion in 1920 under an assumed name, but appears to have deserted from Algeria after two months. This volume, although written in an autobiographical style, is almost certainly a combination of his own experiences and the fiction for which he was popular before the Second World War.

THE NATURAL SUPERIORITY OF WOMEN., Montagu, Ashley.
14 Montagu, Ashley. THE NATURAL SUPERIORITY OF WOMEN.
George Allen & Unwin, London, 1954, first edition. 
205 pp, 8vo (8 5/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "The author develops his highly provocative theme - that women have always been subjected by men - in a sober argument backed by considerable evidence. He maintains that only physical strength has enabled men to domineer for so long, but that in constitution, resistance to disease and size of brain, women are far superior. Fewer women go insane or commit suicide; the legend of emotional instability is easily disproved; women are jus t a s g o o d as men at business. The traditional view of many points Dr Montagu cuts down with sharp, incisive wit. He is satisfied that where women, in history or today, fall short of men in their achievements, it is because that is where men ha v e co n ti nu ed deliberately and out of fear, to keep them down. The author's pungent and reasoned arguments will arouse considerable controversy. But at the same time his lively approach has resulted in a most important and entertaining boo k."

317 pp, 9 1/2" H. "We are all aware of the power of money - how it influences our moods, compels us to take risks, and serves as the yardstick of success in societies around the world. Yet because we take the daily reality of money so completely for granted, we seldom question how and why it has come to play such a central role in our lives. (The author) casts aside our workaday assumptions about money and takes the reader on a global quest to uncover a deeper understanding of the relationship between money and humankind. More than a mere history of its subject, this riveting book probes the conceptual origins and evolution of money by examining it through the multiple lenses of disciplines as varied as biology, psychology, anthropology, and theology. 'Coined' is not only a profoundly informative discussion of the concept of money, but it is also an endlessly fascinating and entertaining take on the nature of humanity and the inner workings of the mind."
