The red moon of neutrality is a desolate place of wonder and danger - of tree-people ruled by a mad monarch; giant ants formed of living crystal; and a mysterious brass dragon dwelling in an obelisk.

The race is on to see who gets dragged to the altar first.

On the fabled Night of the Eye, Raistlin will supposedly acquire great magical power. He'll need it."

Toronto Oxford University Press 1973 0195402057 / 9780195402056 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good- 
318 pp, 9 1/2" H. "In nearly 200 biographical entries, thirty-seven contributors discuss most of the novelists, poets, playwrights, historians, and other writers who have published significantly from the beginning of 1967 to the end of 1972. Books and periodicals (in both English and French) are described in bibliographical articles under Anthologies, Belles Lettres, Children's Books, Drama, Eskimos, Fiction, Folklore, History Studies, Indians, Indian Legends and Art, Literary Magazines, Literary Studies, Poetry, Political Writings, and Translations. While the author entries provide an essential source of information about the leading writers, the bibliographical articles are an organized round-up of publications that will prove illuminating and invaluable to those readers who have only an uncertain knowledge of just what books have become available since 1967. Of all the discoveries that can be made in this 'Supplement', perhaps the most striking and important for the English-speaking reader are the extent and nature of the literary flowering that has taken place in French Canada, here described in detail for the first time in English." Light wrinkling at bottom of spine, tiny stain in text of page 89. Dust jacket has wrinkling at bottom of the spine and at top of front flap area, one tiny edge tear and two tiny edge chips.

PAUL BUNYAN:  THE WORK GIANT., Turney, Ida Virginia.

Portland, Oregon Binfords and Mort 1941 First Edition Hard Cover Good Fair Norma Madge Lyon & Harold L. Price. 
Unpaginated (approx. 80 pp), 10 7/8" H. From the Colophon: "The first edition consists of three thousand copies, the initial 500 of which are numbered, and this is number _____." No number is inserted. Pictorial map endpapers, color illustrations throughout. "Paul Bunyan is America's very own folk character. He did not spring from the legends of our English ancestors, nor from the Indian myths, but like America herself - of which he is a symbol - he just grew. Paul, like our countrymen, started on the East coast - in the Maine woods to be exact. As the nation grew, so did Paul and Babe, his faithful Blue Ox. Their first westward move was to the land of Hiawatha and the Great Lakes. Paul in his enthusiasm thought the great White Pine forests of Michigan and Wisconsin would last forever; but alas, they were soon exhausted, due to fire and wasteful exploitation. More careful this time, but still filled with a mighty urge for Logging - Paul went south into the Long Pine country. He even made the Mississippi his own private waterway, but again he and Babe got the wanderlust. This time they headed for the great Douglas Fir forest of the Pacific Northwest. Like the nation of which he is the symbol, Paul found this last western frontier a satisfying and soul stirring challenge. Here he and Babe could do more than Logging. Here were canals to dig, Bridges to construct, Dams to erect, Mountains and Glaciers to conquer. At last, 'Paul Bunyan the Work Giant' - like America, has come of age." Very small area of ink offset at top corner of free front endpaper (from dust jacket flap), book is slightly cracked at a few places, book is lightly cocked, bump at bottom corner of boards, light edge wear, one page leaf has small finger print smudges at top & bottom corners.

KITCHENER: THE MAN BEHIND THE LEGEND., Warner, Philip.
149 Warner, Philip. KITCHENER: THE MAN BEHIND THE LEGEND.
Hamish Hamilton, London, 1985, first edition. 
247 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0241115876 B&w photographs, map/battle plans, reproductions. "Kitchener was one of the most successful and far-sighted generals Britain has ever had, and his reputation was worldwide. But he has always been a mystery. Legends proliferated about him in his lifetime, and the circumstances of his death have remained an enigma. Not until recently, with the fresh material which has come to light, has it been possible to find the re al person behind that enormous, intimidating moustache. In this absorbing and percipient study, we begin to realise what a debt Britain owes to Kitchener. Far from being the remote, austere figure of the placards, he was a daring adventurer a n d s p y, a meticulous planner and perfectionist, and a commander who took his place in the forefront of the battle in order to know exactly what was happening. Like modern generals, Kitchener believed that battles should be won before they ar e f ou gh t , an d proved that small, well-organized armies could defeat vastly superior forces. In the Sudan he defeated his enemy in a final, searing battle; in South Africa he fought an entirely different campaign in which he methodically remov ed al l h is en em y's advantages. Setbacks only spurred him to greater efforts. He was trusted by civilians; worshipped by his soldiers; and detested by most of his officers. When he became Commander-in-Chief in India he had no war to fight, b ut he l eft the ar my in g ood shape for when its time came. His talent as a planner was great, and much thought was given to thwarting the Russian ambitions in Afghanistan. In the end the Soviets did not invade that country until sixty years aft er his d eath . A nd a lth ough, in company with Churchill, he is blamed for the Dardanelles disaster, recent disclosures of the limitations of contemporary naval gunnery have shown that the real blame lay elsewhere. In this book (Warner) investi gat es the pers onal myths as well a s the public man; Kitchener's dislike of politicians and the stormy episodes this caused later in his career; the fact that he never married because his intended bride died suddenly at the age of eighteen (he w as n ot homo sexual ); hi s abil ity to find friends among the ranks of his enemies as well as enemies among his friends; and what lay behind his untimely death in 1916."

CHILDREN'S LITERATURE IN CANADA.  TWAYNE'S WORLD AUTHORS SERIES - CHILDREN'S LITERATURE., Waterston, Elizabeth.
150 Waterston, Elizabeth. CHILDREN'S LITERATURE IN CANADA. TWAYNE'S WORLD AUTHORS SERIES - CHILDREN'S LITERATURE.
New York Twayne, New York 1992 0805782648 / 9780805782646 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Good+ 
212 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H). B&w illustrations. "Waterston's informative study brings to life Canadian history and culture and illuminates a unique literary community in which acclaimed adult writers like Margaret Atwood, Margaret Laurence, and Mordechai Richler are also the authors of children's books. Waterston demonstrates the distinctly Canadian elements of such works as 'The Young Fur Traders' (1856), 'Anne of Green Gables' (1908), and 'Alligator Pie' (1974). This study delineates the developmental stages through which children progress and discusses the various literary genres that appeal to them at each stage, from picture books and nursery rhymes to historical tales and science fiction. In addition to her focus on the response of the child to various genres, Waterston provides sophisticated literary analysis of the works that have endured as classics, demonstrating how their continuing relevance is rooted in their literary merit. She examines literary styles, themes, and motifs and shows how many of the perennial favorites embrace quintessentially Canadian virtues: honesty, a strong will to survive, humor, passion, and genuine kindness. American and Canadian teachers, librarians, and parents will find in this complete guide a resource for expanding their young readers' literary universe." Minor edge wear, remainder mark on bottom of textblock, tiny foxing mark on top of textblock. Dust jacket has light color fading and some wrinkling on spine, minor rubbing.

6 books (the first six volumes of the 'Legends of Ethshar series) - 6 7/8" H. 1. The Misenchanted Sword - 292 pp, 1985, ISBN 0345318226 - "(The old wizard had) promised the young scout a magic sword to get him safely back to his own lines - and a much enchanted sword Valder would get! The resulting sword gave perfect protection - sometimes! It could kill any man - or even half demon. In fact, once drawn, it had to kill before it could be put down or sheathed." 2. With a Single Spell - 263 pp, 1987, ISBN 0345326164 - "Tobas has been lucky to find a wizard to take him on as apprentice. But now the wizard had died of old age, after teaching Tobas only the elementary spell for starting a fire. And Tobas' efforts to open the Book of Spells used by the wizard had resulted in a fire that consumed the hut and all its contents. Across the sea, in faraway Old Ethshar, there were dragons to be slain, princesses and gold to be won, magic castles and witches who knew the secret of immortality. Tobas gathered his aspirations to his empty stomach and set out to find a rowboat." 3. The Unwilling Warlord - 309 pp, 1989, ISBN 0345354133 - "(Sterren had been kidnapped and dragged) to Semma, smallest of the Small Kingdoms. That didn't seem so bad, at first. They made him a noble, with the title of Hereditary Ninth Warlord of Semma. Then he learned what his duty was. He was supposed to win the war the stupid King had stirred up by his arrogance. Three larger and stronger Kingdoms were getting set to invade Semma. (If) he didn't win the war for them in his position as Ninth Warlord, it would be considered treason - penalty: instant execution." 4. The Blood of a Dragon - 231 pp, 1991, ISBN 0345364104 - "It was definite - Dumery had no magical talent at all. He could never fulfill his dream to become a wizard's apprentice. Hurt, angry, and mortally disappointed, he despaired of ever choosing a trade. But then (he) spied a so-called great wizard humbling himself before a man selling dragon's blood - the precious stuff that made difficult spells work. If Dumery couldn't be a wizard, maybe he could become a dragon-hunter and have all those scornful wizards crawling to him." 5. Taking Flight - 271 pp, 1993, ISBN 034537715X - "(W)hen a fortune-teller prediceted a glorious future (for Kelder), that he'd roam free and unfettered and be a champion of the lost and forlorn, he immediately set out on the fabled Great Highway to Shan in search of adventure. But once he was on the road, life was hardly as exciting as he'd hoped - until he met Irith. She was the most beautiful girl, and the only girl with wings, Kelder had ever seen. They teamed up to see the world, and then Kelder found adventures aplenty: There were bandits and demons, and there were curses lifted, wizards to seek spells from, orphans to champion, and legendary cities to visit. But Kelder began to wonder about his beautiful companion. Irith certainly had seen a lot of the world for one so young - and everyone along the highway seemed to know her." 6. The Spell of the Black Dagger - 312 pp, 1993, ISBN 0345377125 - "Tabaea was an ordinary thief, sneaking and prowling and stealing for a living. Then one night while burgling a hourse, she witnessed a wizard teaching his apprentice a spell - the creation of a magic dagger. Tabaea decided to try the magic for herself. But even though she culd feel the power rising around her as she went through the steps of the ritual, something had clearly gone wrong. The apprentice's dagger had glowed; it had resisted attempts to pick it up; and there had been a blinding flash at the end of the ceremony. But Tabaea's dagger didn't do any of those things. And it wouldn't free her from bonds, or heal her wounds - it didn't seem to be magical at all. It just turned black. Then, by chance, Tabaea discovered that her dagger indeed had its own kind of unusual magic - a dark, powerful magic that promised invincibility to its bearer." Interiors - light browning at page margins and inside edges of covers, otherwise clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exteriors - very light to light edge wear, two volumes with a faint spine crease, light browning to edges of text block, volumes 1 2 & 3 have a very small faint number stamp on bottom of text block, volume 1 has a small sticker removal mark on front cover.

365 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0312059949 Map endpapers, b&w maps, plans, drawings, reproductions. "Arguing, convincingly, that the 'Iliad' and the 'Odyssey' do not fit the topography, geology, climate, and oceanic tidal patterns of the eastern Mediterranean, Wilkens relocates the Homeric scene in western Europe and the northern Atlantic, revealing the precise site of Troy itself and the plain on which the Trojan War was fought. By examining the texts in det ail, Wilkens has identified over 400 place-names in western Europe and concludes that the original oral version was composed by Homer several hundred years before it was written down. He reveals that the Trojan War was fought on a far larger scale than previously thought, by Celts from regions as far apart as Scandinavia and Spain, and that the 'Odyssey' provided an oral map for illiterate Celtic seafarers - an extraordinary and enlightening journey into prehistory that is as exciting as the voyages of Odysseus. Thanks to Wilkens' patient detective work, many of the most puzzling aspects of Homer's epic poems now fall into place, enabling the reader - perhaps for the first time - to understand fully the meaning and significance of Euro pe's oldest literary masterpieces.'
