A strange feathered child hatches from a speckled egg. A baby is fished out of the sea. Ordinary-seeming children make snowmen who can talk, and have a friend who is a witch. Shellover tells a new story about Minnie the cat, and her inquisitive kittens; another about two boys in an adventure playground; and the little girl and her friends, the horse and the hen. When Shellover gets sleepy this time, the pets decide to tell their own stories. The results are delightful!"

New York Farrar, Straus & Giroux 2013 0374107874 / 9780374107871 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Very Good+ Dust jacket art by Matt Buck. 
383 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H). "Paris, 1959" The City of Light is the center of the universe. Expats flock to exercise their loftiest ambitions and most libertine fantasies, and maybe dabble in a bit of Cold War spycraft along the way. Refugees from the East - a few babayagas among them - arrive to start their lives anew. The world's greatest city is as cosmopolitan and alive as it's ever been. Will is just another young American seeking his fortune in Paris - except that the ad agency that employs him is a front for the CIA. He's been in the city a few years now and is beginning to sense that his time is up - and he still hasn't figured out Parisian girls. Zoya is a beautiful young woman wandering 'les boulevards', sad-eyed, coming off a bad breakup. In fact, she impaled her ex on a spike. Zoya, it turns out, has been a beautiful young woman for hundreds of years; she and her far more traditionally witchy companion, Elga, have been thriving unnoticed amid the bloody froth of Europe's wars. Inspector Vidot is a hardworking Paris police detective who cherishes quiet nights at home. But when he follows a lead from a grisly murder to the warren of a frightened old woman, he undergoes a radical transformation. Oliver is a patrician, fun-loving American who has come to Paris to start a literary journal with the help of some friends, who ask only a few discreet favors in return. When a few of his dodgier acquaintances start dropping dead, he realizes he's in well over his head, though he remains fairly confident that it's nothing a well-made cocktail can't fix. A few chance encounters, a bit of romantic chemistry, a chorus of angry ghosts, a strung-out jazzman or three, a weaponized LSD program, and a cache of rifles buried in the catacombs - those are approximately half the ingredients of 'Babayaga'. But then there's something even more unexpected that Toby Barlow has smuggled in, too: a daring, moving exploration of love and morality." Dust jacket has soft wrinkle at bottom of rear hinge, small blank label across barcode.

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.

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...."

THE MAGICAL ARTS: A SHORT HISTORY, Burland, C. A.
10 Burland, C. A. THE MAGICAL ARTS: A SHORT HISTORY
London Arthur Barker 1966 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Good+ 
196 pp, 8vo (8 11/16" H). B&w illustrations. "From the earliest time man has been fascinated by visions and dreams, and by the discovery that there were men who could, by magical powers, improve a crop or foretell the weather. As civilization grew there were demands for knowledge which would give control over other men or protection from the wiles of enemies. The study of magic and counter magic became important in the policy of states. Later magic was denounced as a work of the Devil, and then the Devil himself was demoted to become a laughing stock. Yet even nowadays there exist in the most advanced nations societies devoted to magical practices, who deal in strange rituals, and promote the interests of their membership against all enemies. A careful study shows that there is a good deal of scientific knowledge involved in the vast and complex network of 'magical' practice today. This book sets out to show some of the main lines of influence which have led to the present traditions. It treats the subject as if if were a tapestry of many strands each of which has a line of origin from which it traverses like a weft thread on the warp of universal psychological experience. This book is a short history of a complex development. It is planned as a groundwork from which the interested reader can advance to further detailed studies." Light wrinkling at bottom of spine, small slight bump at top corner of both boards. Dust jacket has light to moderate edge wear, a few small closed tears, jacket has been laminated for protection and to prevent further deterioration over the center portion (panels, spine and flap-folds).

464 pp, 9 1/2" H. "Quicksilver is part romance, part psychologicl thriller. Richly evocative and subtly erotic, it gives a fascinating insight into the myth of the werewolf. Raised in exile as an English gentleman trying to forget a tragic past, Ned Malise wanted only to be left alone with his music, his rich daydreams and his love for Marika. But at the age of thirty-three, he suddenly began to turn into a wolf. Or so it seemed in 1638, when werewolves were still tried and hanged like witches. On the run from hunters with dogs, Ned takes refuge with the woman he has loved from a distance all his life, who must herself in turn make a terrifying decision. Then Ned finds that rescue can be even more horrifying than execution. Set in England and Holland, in a world where medieval superstition still warred with the emerging experimental sciences of the Age of Reason, (it) moves from court intrigue to back-street quacks, from the healing power of music to the deadly hunger of intellectual ambition. From the horror of Ned's first unravelling by his Wolf, by way of one of the strangest yet most satisfying love stories seen outside myth, it propels the reader to an astonishing but exhilarating end - (and) stretches our understanding of the beast that lurks in man."

People have always held witches in awe and feared them at the same tim e. From their earliest beginnings and through the Biblical period, the Middle Ages, and the early history of the United States, witches were isolated from the community by their extraordinary powers for good and evil. The earliest witch trials t o o k place in southern France around 1245, and the Salem witch trials are a notorious chapter in our country's history. Witches were the first doctors and the first spiritual advisers and still maintain these roles in primitive societies. (The au th or ) has written a fascinating history of witches. Emphasizing the practical procedures of witchcraft, she describes their paraphernalia, rites, spells, and recipes; their habits and appearance; and the contrasting practices of witches from d iff ere nt parts of the world, from the Middle Ages to the present.

"In this rollicking reminiscence of the good old days, CHUM alumnus Allen Farrell reveals how a band of brazen broadcasters took the rock 'n' roll 'fad' and ran with it to become the grand arbiter of all that was hip. You'll meet CHUM's ever-changing cast of stars - the eccentric on-air personalities, the juggernaut salespeople, the outrageous promotions people - and its bit players, including peeing spider monkeys, guitar-playing chimps, and a trio of hex-casting witches who won the Maple Leafs the Stanley Cup in 1964. And you'll get the inside scoop on and lavish photos of the stars of the day: Elvis, the Beatles, Johnny Cash, Frankie Valli, Harry Belafonte, Jerry Lewis, Chubby Checker, Dick Clark, Connie Francis, and countless others. Rock 'n' roll rebels. Top Forty pioneers. Progressive rock visionaries. CHUM defined each generation by the tunes they listened to. Anyone who reached for the dial in the '50s or '60s and turned to CHUM for laughs and social connection should reach now for 'The CHUM Story'!" Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Very tiny bump at bottom of front hinge, two tiny corner curls, minor rubbing.
