"This magnificent edition combines the original and authentic story, as it was written by Hans Christian Andersen more than one hundred and fifty years ago, with dazzling illustrations by Charles Santore, in a spectacular vision that is as fresh as it is profoundly moving. Faithful to Andersen's story as it was first published in Denmark in 1837, this classic translation includes all the fascinating episodes in the life of the brave and resourceful child-woman of the sea, who falls in love not only with the handsome prince but also with the idea of becoming a human being. It tells of her courage and steadfastness in pursuing her goals, through pain, hardship, and sacrifice. There have been many translations of this fairy tale, but this edition presents the original story in all its wonder, essentially as it was translated with grace and elegance by Mary Howitt, a correspondent and friend of Andersen, who introduced his work to the English reading public." Book is Near Fine. Dust jacket has very minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, small tear archivally taped at top of rear hinge.

Betrayal leads to Scylla's transformat ion into a sea monster that is half Nereid and half wolf pack. One half lures; the other devours. Charybdis becomes accursed through her own caprice. Having spent her youth as a spoiled princess, she is transformed into a monster as gre e d y f o r s e awater as she had been for the objects of her desire. Twice a day she drinks the tide, and any ships sailing in it. Twice a day she spits it out again, corpses and all. This is the exciting saga of Scylla and Charybdis and the m ay he m c au se d w he n they are brought together in a swirling, narrow passage through which many ships and men must pass. It tells of those who meet their death there and of the perils encountered by the hero Ulysses in that deadly strait." Dus t j ack et h as min or w rin kl ing at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds.

17 Gelardi, Julia P. FROM SPLENDOR TO REVOLUTION: THE ROMANOV WOMEN, 1847-1928.
New York St. Martin's Press, 2011 0312371152 / 9780312371159 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
482 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). B&w photographs. "The years between the early 1850s and the late 1920s marked a turbulent and significant era for Russia. During that time the country underwent a massive transformation, taking it from days of grandeur under the tsars to the chaos of revolution and the beginnings of the Soviet Union. At the center of this tumult were four women of the Romanov dynasty. Marie Alexandrovna and Olga Constantinovna were born into the family, Russian grand duchesses at birth. Marie Feodorovna and Marie Pavlovna married into the dynasty: the former born a princess of Denmark, the latter a duchess of the German duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. These Romanov women, distinguished in varying degrees by their beauty and elegance, their wealth and power, savored a life of privilege and unsurpassed luxury. Marie Alexandrovna, Tsar Alexander II's pampered daughter, astonished her mother-in-law, Queen Victoria, with her strength of character. Thrust into the role of queen at age sixteen, Olga Constaninovna's altruistic streak benefited Greeks and Russians alike. Charming and vivacious, Marie Feodorovna, the mother of the ill-fated Tsar Nicholas II, excelled in her role as empress. Formidable and ambitious, Marie Pavlovna emerged as a rival to Tsarina Alexandra, Nicholas II's embattled consort. (This book) presents the unforgettable political and personal dramas of these extraordinary women. What began for them as a time of splendor ended after World War I with Russia destroyed by revolution." Small soft bump to top corner of pages 367 to 436, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine - two tiny tears at top, one very small corner bump. Dust jacket has very light rubbing, soft crease down front hinge area, light edge wrinkling - maily at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds.

18 Green, Simon R. BLUE MOON RISING / BLOOD AND HONOR / DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN. FIRST THREE VOLUMES OF THE "FOREST KINGDOM" SERIES.
New York ROC Mass Market Paperbacks Very Good 
The first three volumes of the "Forest Kingdom" series, 6 7/8" H. 1. Blue Moon Rising - 476 pp, 1991, 2nd printing, ISBN 0451450957 - "Rupert didn't especially want to be a prince. And he certainly never asked to be the second son of a royal line that really didn't need a spare. After all, a kingdom suffering from financial setbacks couldn't afford to have factions fighting over who was more worthy to rule as the next king. So Rupert was sent out to slay a dragon and prove himself - a quest straight out of legends. But he also discovered the kind of things legends didn't tell, as well as the usual demons, goblins, the Night Witch - even the terrors hidden in the Darkwood. Rupert found his dragon and a princess to rescue, too. But the dragon turned out to be a better friend than anyone back at the castle. And with the Darkwood suddenly spreading its evil - with the blue moon rising and the Wild Magic along with it, Rupert was going to need all the friends he could get - ." 2. Blood and Honor - 332 pp, 1993, first printing, ISBN 0451452429 - "Jordan had always prided himself on his acting abilities, but now he faced the challenge of his career. Magicked into looking exactly like Prince Viktor, middle son of the recently assassinated King Malcolm, Jordan had been hired to pretend to be the prince as a war of succession raged at Castle Midnight. With both Viktor's (brothers) only too eager to dispatch their middle sibling, thereby increasing their own chances to gain the crown, Jordan soon found himself hard pressed to survive. And in a castle where the winds of Unreality might at any moment sweep down upon the unsuspecting, leaving behind little that was recognizably human, Jordan could only hope for a very short run in the role of prince and a quick escape from the kingdom with the fortune promised him for a successful job." 3. Down Among the Dead Men - 283 pp, 1993, 2nd printing, ISBN 0451453018 - "The Witch's Sight was their first warning of danger. The four Rangers had been sent to check on the border fortress which had fallen mysteriously silent. What they found defied explanation - but all too soon the nightmares that reigned here would seek to possess them. Even with the unexpect-ed aid of three outlaws - the first a keeper of the Wild Magic, the second the bearer of the last Infernal Device of the Demon Wars, and the third a master bowman - it was doubtful that the Rangers could stand against the creature that waited in the depths below the fortress. And if they could not find it before it woke, this most ancient beast would rise up to wreak destruction on the world." Interiors - very light browning in margins of pages, two volumes with browning on inside of covers, otherwise clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exteriors - light browning to edges of text blocks, one volume with some very light soiling on fore-edge of text block, very light edge wear.
