337 pp, mass market paperback. B&w photographs, map, family tree. "In July 1944 a group of conspirators known as Secret Germany attempted to kill Hitler. The mastermind of the conspiracy was Count Claus von Stauffenberg. Who was this charismatic, dashing aristocrat, who was said to be the only man to stare the Fuhrer down? What were the secret teachings that inspired him to the audacious act of assassination? Forty-six serious but failed attempts on Hitler's life in twenty years reflect a strong anti-Nazi movement in Germany. For Stauffenberg, the bomb plot organized by his esoteric circle was more a moral and spiritual necessity than an act of political expediency. Had he succeeded, he might have become the saviour of the national soul. In this remarkable investigation (the authors) explain how Stauffenberg represents a resolution of the conflicting myths of German culture. In his courage and integrity he stands as an atonement for the barbarism of the Third Reich." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - very minor edge wear.

337 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H). B&w photographs, maps. "At thirty-seven, Colonel Count Claus von Stauffenberg, Chief of Staff of the Reich Reserve Army, was a charismatic figure destined for supreme command. The group of conspirators with whom he conceived the plot to kill Hitler in July 1944 was called 'Secret Germany'. That was also the name of the esoteric circle in which Stauffenberg as a young man had been a disciple of the mystic anti-Nazi magus and poet Stefan George. What was it that motivated this extraordinary aristocratic soldier, with the looks of a Hollywood idol, who was said to be only man to stare the Fuhrer down until he averted his eyes? For Stauffenberg the bomb plot was not a political move but a moral and spiritual necessity. After forty-two serious attempts on Hitler's life in the previous twenty years, why did he too fail? Had he succeeded, some say he would have become the de Gaulle of Germany, saviour of the national soul. Even in failure, there can be no doubt of Stauffenberg's heroism. He stands as an atonement for the Third Reich and a resolution of the conflicting myths of German culture. In this remarkable investigation his whole life explains a troubled past to the present generation of Europeans as few have done in recent history." Tiny crease at bottom corner of pages 83 to 100.

14 Dene Wodih Society, compiler. Edited by Patrick Moore and Angela Wheelock. WOLVERINE MYTHS AND VISIONS: DENE TRADITIONS FROM NORTHERN ALBERTA.
Edmonton University of Alberta Press 1990 0888641486 / 9780888641489 First Edition Hard Cover Good- Very Good- Dia Thurston. 
259 pp, 9 1/4" H. Ex-libary. B&w drawings, maps. "The Dene Dhaa traditionally believe that long ago all the animals talked and lived like humans. Two Animal People stand out in their stories: Wolf and Wolverine. Wolf often helps people in Dene myth and is respected by many traditional Dene who will not trap wolves for fur. Wolverine is a trickster and cultural transformer. Although the relationship between humans and wolverines may often be antagonistic since wolverines destroy traps and ruin belongings, in these stories, Wolverine also has great powers of healing and transformation. Historically, stories were considered as valuable possessions and Dene storytellers are part of a well established oral tradition. These stories collected by the Dene Wodih Society come from religious leaders, respected elders, and authorities on Dene tradition. The Dene Dhaa, a group of Athapaskan-speaking natives, also known as the Slave or Slavey Indians, occupy three reserves in northwestern Alberta. Because their settlements were until recently dispersed and isolated, they have maintained their language and traditions. Recorded in the Dene language with literal interlinear English gloses and in a free English translation, this collection of stories represents a major contribution to the documentation of the Dene language, ethnography and folklore." This is an ex-library book with library stamps on top/bottom of text block and on title-page, large areas of surface paper loss and glue/paper residue on three endpapers from removal of library protective jacket and card pocket.

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."

16 Edwards, Bernard. DONITZ AND THE WOLF PACKS.
Brockhampton, London, 1999, reprint. 
240 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1860199275 B&w photographs, maps/battle plans. "The U-boat, the submarine of the German Navy, was a hidden predator, which would steal up on its prey out of sight beneath the waves. T he tactics were much like the wild wolf of the forest, whose grey camouflage would keep it out of sight until it chose to attack. Just as the wolf was even more effective when it roamed in groups, cornering its quarry before catching it, so A d m i r a l Karl Donitz chose to use the grey hulls of his submarines in packs - 'wolf packs'. This simple yet stunningly successful tactic came very close to winning the Battle of the Atlantic and inflicted huge losses of Allied merchant and nava l ve ss el s a nd their crews. With the packs dispersing after an attack as quickly as they had gathered for it, defence against the strategy was fraught with difficulty and only the U-boats' inability to wage their warfare without surfacing gave th e A lli es a ch a nce of fighting back. In this empathetic and deeply researched volume, (the author) delves beneath the myths and legends of submarinal action and convoy protection to discuss the realities of wolf pack deployment. He explains wha t ca used Do ni tz to employ the plan and how close his scheme came to destroying Allied resistance. It is an account of a remarkable naval tactic, cunningly used with great brutality by men who themselves withstood awesome deprivation, secur ing the a dulat ion of the ir nation."
