THE RIVER PALACE., Lewis, Walter and Neilson, Rich.
1 Lewis, Walter and Neilson, Rich. THE RIVER PALACE.
Toronto Dundurn 2008 155002793X / 9781550027938 First Edition Soft Cover Fine 
248 pp, large 8vo (9" H). B&w photographs, reproductions, drawings. "Steamboats carrying passengers from Hamilton to Montreal via the rapids of the St. Lawrence were a popular sight in the latter half of the nineteenth century. In 1855, the 'Kingston', an iron steamboat built for John Hamilton, appeared on the Great Lakes. When the Prince of Wales (later Edward VII) toured British North America in 1860, the 'Kingston' became his floating palace for much of his time between Quebec and Toronto. While many steamboats claimed to be floating palaces, the 'Kingston' truly was one. The 'Kingston' was wrecked many times and survived spectacular fires in 1872 and 1873. Late in her career, she was converted into a salvage vessel and renamed the 'Cornwall'. In 1930 she was finally taken out and sunk near one of Kingston's ship graveyards. There she remained until diver Rick Neilson discovered her in 1989. Today, the once-palatial 'Kingston' is a popular dive site and tourist attraction." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - clean and bright.

Pergamon-Brassey's, Washington, 1989. 
161 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0080367356 B&w photographs. "One of the first analyses of the pure art of planning the aerial dimension of war. (It) explores the complicated connection between air superiority and vi ctory by focusing on the use of air forces at the operational level in a theater of war. The most compelling task for the theater commander, the author argues, is translating national war objectives into tactical plans at operational levels. H e p r esents his case by drawing on fascinating historical examples, stressing that mastery of operational-level strategy can be the key to winning future wars. This book offers today's planners greater understanding of how to use air power aga i ns t n um er ous enemy capabilities in a wide variety of air operations." Remainder mark on top of text block. Dust jacket has very minor edge wear at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, minor rubbing. Very Good+/Very Good+

7 Wilson, Colin. THE GOD OF THE LABYRINTH.
London Rupert Hart-Davis 1970 246639784 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good- Very Good- 
305 pp, 8vo (8" H). " 'I have always been obsessed by the way that sexual experience seems to slip through the fingers like fairy gold - ' So writes Gerard Sorme, the narrator of Colin Wilson's entertainingly provocative novel. For Sorme the problem is how to sustain the blinding clarity of the sexual experience, even long after the experience itself. But how is this to be done? How are the senses to be kept at that dazzling pitch of perception? Sorme stumbles on to the solution almost by accident. On the track of the eighteenth century rake, Esmond Donnelly, he finds himself following a trail that leads from the home of an amazing sexual pervert in the deep American South to a fantastic climactic orgy in the English countryside - a labyrinthine trail of sex, lust and perversion that brings him ultimately to the truth about Esmond Donnelly and the excessive sexual behaviour of the group known as the Sect of the Phoenix. It takes him also to the unparalleled summit of his own sexual experience. Burning intellectual curiosity, a savage and perceptive eye for the darker areas of human experience, and the ability to write in a fast, entertaining way - these are the qualities that make (this book) a triumph." Faint cigarette odor, two very small light stains and erased pencil mark on free front endpaper, light browning to edges of text block, very small light stain on top of text block, small paper loss at bottom of inside rear hinge, slight wrinkling at bottom of spine, book is slightly cocked. Dust jacket has scattered very small foxing marks on front flap and inside surface, light browning at top edge of flaps and on spine, very light edge wear/wrinkling, tiny ship at bottom of rear flap fold, tiny dent on front hinge.
