315 pp, mass market paperback. ISBN 0345375939 " 'Master, I have failed....' Illmuri, the apprentice wizard gave his report. The Skylding clan had been destroyed, their treasure lost forever. Only Skyla, the witch-girl, was left alive - at the mercy of her own rampant magic and a clan of vengeful enemies. The Dark Elves had triumphed. Old Eyjarr took the discouraging news calmly. Hadn't he seen defeat before, in other lives, in strand after strand of the Web of Life? But he knew that if he could thwart the curse of the Dark Elves even once, the infernal curse would finally disappear from all the strands, for all time. The trick, Eyjarr assured his astonished pupil, would be to learn from their mistakes - and to search again for the one, improbable strand where a couple of clever wizards could cheat an implacable fate...."

"Little did Teldin Moore know there was life beyond Krynn's moons - until a crashed spelljamming ship demolished his farm and changed his life! With a dying alien's magical cloak and cryptic words, he quickly discovers that he's a popular fellow. He and his giff companion race to find Astinus of Palanthas and the gnomes of Mount Nevermind to learn why, before the mostrous neogi can find them!" 2. Into the Void - 311 pp, 1991, ISBN 1560761547. "Plunged into a sea of alien faces, Teldin Moore isn't sure whom to trust. His gnomish sidewheeler is attacked by space pirates, and he is saved by a hideous mind flayer who offers to help the human use his magical cloak - but for whose gain? Teldin learns the basics of spell-jamming, and he seeks an ancient arcane, one who might tell him more." 3. The Maelstrom's Eye - 313 pp, 1992, ISBN 1560763442. "From an elven admiral at the Rock of Bral, Teldin Moore learns more about his cloak's past and its potential powers - but he doesn't count on being caught up in the hurri-cane of the second Unhuman War. Vengeful humanoids rampage through the Known Spheres, and they're on Teldin's trail even as he hunts for the ultimate spacefaring ship of all: the mighty 'Spell-jammer'!" 4. The Radiant Dragon - 312 pp, 1992, ISBN 1560763469. "Teldin Moore is looking for the great ship 'Spelljammer'. A radiant dragon holds the key to commanding the great ship but needs Teldin's help to take control. Meanwhile, the elves seek his assistance in the second Unhuman War, where a group of elf-hating monsters trades with goblinoids for a secret weapon against the elven Imperial Fleet. But someone in Teldin's inner circle is pulling all parties toward battle." 5. The Broken Sphere - 314 pp, 1993, ISBN 1560765968. "Teldin Moore's magic amulet allows him to 'see' through the eyes of the great ship 'Spelljammer', across the wilds of space. Following clues from an ancient gnomish library and the vision he sees, he traces the mighty craft through the crystal spheres. He employs his magical cloak's powers and discovers his quarry's home, but Teldin's cloak - and the possibility it could give him control over the 'Spelljammer' - continues to draw enemies, often in the guise of friends. Will he survive long enough to face the final danger that awaits him at the point of the 'Spelljammer's' origin - the Broken Sphere?" Interiors - very light to light browning to inside of covers, slight toning to pages; book five has light creases at top corner of last few pages and a few tiny corner creases elsewhere; otherwise all books are clean and tight with no other ownership marks.

252 pages, 6 15/16" H. "A corps of corpses was what it seemed Garrett had committed himself to when Blake Peters turned up to reclaim some overdue favors. Someone was trying to kill Peters' boss, wealthy, retired General Stantor, in a most lingering, painful, and maybe poisonous way. And Peters wanted Garrett to keep the general from becoming a ghost of himself. But Stantnor's mansion held a host of surprises for a human detective who thought he'd seen it all. For while the general was dying slowly, his employees were losing their lives at a far speedier rate. And when some of the not-long-departed tried to enlist their comrades in the growing legions of the dead, Garrett knew it was time to call in his own troops in the person of Morley Dotes, the toughest half-elf around. Morley would guard his back against whoever had decided that Garrett, too, belonged six feet underground. And meanwhile, Garrett would try to handle - or get his hands on - both the killer and the mansion's two elusive beauties - who seemed invisible to everyone but Garrett!"

255 pages, 7" H. "It should have been a simple job. But for Garrett, a human detective in a world of gnomes, tracking down the woman to whom his dead pal Denny left a fortune in silver was no slight task. Denny's family wanted to hang onto the treasure - especially sister Rose, with a body hot enough to stop Garrett in his tracks, but a heart colder than the metal he was packing. And suddenly vampires, centaurs, and other nasty creatures are in the way, and Garrett would much rather be at home with a bottle of beer than in the wilds with fangs in his neck. Even with the aid of Morley, the toughest half-elf around, Garrett isn't sure he'd make it out alive from a land where magic could be murder, the dead still talked, and vampires were always hungry for human blood!"

15 Evans, Hilary and Evans, Mary. THE LIFE AND ART OF GEORGE CRUIKSHANK 1792-1878.
New York S.G. Phillips 1978 0875992277 / 9780875992273 Hard Cover Very Good Good George Cruikshank 
192 pp, 11 1/4" H. Profusely illustrated with b&w reproductions. "When George Cruikshank died, (over) a hundred years ago, he was admired as an artist, respected as a reformer, loved as a man. But he had lived so long and created so much that few could discern any unity underlying the diverse creations of his seventy-year working life - creations ranging from a thumbnail caricature of Napoleon III ('it never reigns but it bores!') to the four-metres-wide 'Worship of Bacchus' which now hangs, dusty and neglected, in the storerooms of the Tate Gallery. For some he was the artist who showed us Oliver Twist asking for mroe; for some the whimsical delineator of elves and fairies; for others the fanatical reformer who drew 'The Bottle' to convert us all from the Demon Drink. Everything he created was a spontaneous response to the world he saw. It might be something trivial, as when he went on a day-trip to Boulogne - the only time he left English soil! - and memorialized the event in a masterly sketch of seasick travellers (which perhaps explains why the adventure was never repeated). Or it might be on a deeper level, as when he symbolises in 'The Drunkard's Children' all the horrors of modern industrial society. It is his ability to see the world both as it is and as it might be which is the greatness of Cruikshank, both as a man and as an artist, and this book sets out to reveal the continual development of his art as a reflection of his continual development as a man. It therefore takes the form of a running commentary on pictures which are themselves a running commentary on the artist's outward and inward life. From more than two hundred pictures, one of the widest selections of his work ever brought together, Cruickshank emerges, not just as one of the world's greatest illustrators, but as a visionary artist whose work, at first glance so light and casual, reveals a profound sympathy and understanding of human life." Minor bump at top bottom of spine, one tiny corner bump, some light rubbing on rear board. Dust jacket has light edge wear, moderate edge wrinkling - mainly at top edge, light fading to spine and flap-fold color, 2" puckered triangular closed tear and small puncture with associated rub line on rear panel, 1" tear at bottom of front flap fold, minor rubbing and soiling on rear panel.

197 pp, 10" H. J.R.R. Tolkien, the "man who was embarrassed by success lived most of his life as an Oxford scholar in the surrounds of a cloistered academic community.

As a young adult, (he) lived throught the bloody horror of the trenches of World War I.

208 pp, 11" H. "J.R.R. Tolkien (1892-1973) renowned author of 'The Hobbit', 'The Lord of the Rings' and 'The Silmarillion', was an artist in pictures as well as in words. Though he often remarked that he had no talent for drawing, his art has charmed his readers and has been exhibited to large and appreciative audiences the world over. In fact, his talent was far more than he admitted, and his sense of design was natural and keen. (This book) explores Tolkien's art at length, from his childhood paintings and drawings to his final sketches. At its heart are his illustrations for his books, especially his tales of Middle-earth. Also examined are the pictures Tolkien made for his children, his expressive calligraphy, his love of decoration, and his contributions to the typography and design of his books. With 200 reproductions, many in full colour, this lavishly-produced book offers a perfect opportunity for anyone wishing to discover a largely unexplored aspect of J.R.R. Tolkien's character."
