"Almost anything can now be made in miniature. Cars, aircraft and tanks, even models to make complete villages can be found in model-maker's stores. Today, the majority of models are made in plastic and they are mass-produced in their thousands. However, there is a world of difference between a standard model thrown together by the average amateur and that assembled by the expert using tricks and techniques to make his model unique. In this comprehensive guide, master model-maker Daniel Puiboube shows how to create exceptional models from basic kits. He explains how to choose the best models from the many available, how to improve and modify them. In simple terms he gives guidance on assembly, finishing and display. His guide will serve as a useful reference to which the model-maker will refer repeatedly."

New York Van Nostrand Reinhold 1976 0442269056 / 9780442269050 Hard Cover Very Good Very Good Mitja Koman, photographs. 
22 pp + plate section containing 197 colour and b&w examples, square (9 3/8" H x 9 3/8" D). B&w photographs of stitches and b&w stitch diagrams. "This book describes the folk art embroidery as it flourished in the Yugoslavian republic of Croatia until the early twentieth century. Ordinary, otherwise unskilled women transmitted their extraordinary skills from generation to generation, using traditional materials, stitches, and motifs to ornament their clothing and national costumes. Their work integrated influences from historic periods and styles, but the rich heterogeneity of motifs, the vitality of the color schemes, and the perfection of techniques remained their own. The designs and techniques shown are being used today in Yugoslavia, even though the drive to use them in their pure form is no longer there. In spite of the sophisticated, pefectly realized appearance of the work, many of the patterns are simple and made with a number of relatively easily mastered techniques which are fully described in this book." Contents: Foreword; Information on the Stitches; Materials; Description of Techniques; Stitches on Counted Threads; Outline Stitches, Edgings, Borders, Fillings; Appliques; Captions; Diagrams; Plates. Very slight bow to book, very small light soiling mark at top corner of front board.

ISBN 0901897191 "Externally, the Fishermen's Chapel is a plain, rectangular structure with no sign of ornamentation or suggestion of the glory that it holds within. But once inside, the visitor is confronted with an experience of unparalleled delight: the walls and the stone-vaulted ceiling are covered with Old and New Testament scenes, executed in bright colours. For more than six hundred years these medieval paintings have survived the ravages of time and man, and although they are now far from complete, their impact is nevertheless stunning: the message they conveyed to medieval worshippers is still there to be read today. Between 1982 and 1988, an integrated programme of research and investigation, conservation and repair, refurbishment and revitalization, took place with an interdisciplinary and internationally recruited team. The results of their findings have now been distilled and are presented in this volume." Chapter headings: Historical Introduction; A Brief Description of the Chapel; The Wall Paintings; Archaeological Investigations; Structural Analysis; Architectural Style and Dating; Conservation and Restoration; Synthesis and Interpretation; Technical Appendices. Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, very light soiling mark in margin of page125. Dust jacket has light rubbing, one tiny edge tear, tiny dent on spine. VG+/VG

192 pp, 4to (12" H). Profusely illustrated in colour and b&w with photographs, reproductions. "Paul Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's Minister of Propaganda and Public Entertainment, refined the use of what he called the Big Lie to a fine art. Democracy was portrayed as evil, dictatorship as good. Books which did not conform with Nazi ideology were burned; radio broadcasts were made with the intention of cowing the German populace and frightening the peoples of the world. Mass rallies were staged in Berlin, Nuremberg and elsewhere to whip up enthusiasm for the military expansion of Germany and hysteria for the Third Reich and the Fuhrer. Magazines and newspapers played their role in a more subtle way, emphasizing Nazi triumphs and minimizing or obliterating criticism of the regime and its failures. Colorful posters were put up throughout Germany. Later the Nazis enlisted the support of other Europeans in the pan-German cause. All of these propaganda techniques were master-minded by Goebbels, whose genius in orchestrating propaganda in the mass media was acknowledged even by his enemies. In films, magazines, posters, rallies and speeches by Hitler and his followers, Goebbels developed a propaganda mechanism that has been copied by dozens of dictators since but never equalled in its cynicism and fury." Book is slightly cocked, has light edge wear - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light browning to edges of text block, light cigarette odor. Dust jacket has very light edge wear, browning at edges, light edge wrinkling, creasing at top 4" of front hinge, light rubbing.

Random House, New York, 1954, first edition. 
311 pp, 8vo (8 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w plates. "This anecdotal profile tells the story of the fabulous 'Emperors of Pawnbroking' - the William (Hockshop) Simpsons who for five generations maintained the oldest, best-known and most respected pawnshop in the United States. This bizarre family business began in 1822 when the first William Simpson came from England and set up New York's first hockshop. From the era of O. Henry to that of Damon Runyon, the Simpsons did business with gypsies, morticians, gamblers, actors, sportsmen and thousands of others who came to their store to solve unique personal problems. Among the items handled by the Simpsons were the fabulous Hope Diamond, a Stradivarius, a ten-volume History of the Jews, fifteenth-century manuscripts, paintings, a set of Chinese screens, rugs, linens, coins, antiques, watches and a Crusader's giant thumb ring. The people who hocked these varied treasures were famous and infamous, rich and poor, e t h i c a l a nd not so ethical. There are stories here about 'sleepers' - those unexpected bargains that turn up so rarely, and there is an expose of clever frauds and shady tricks used in the past. In addition, the appendix covers techniques an d cu st om s of pa wnbroking and gives five basic rules for hockers, plus a brief history of borrowing and lending through the ages. Here you will learn how to protect yourself, how to tell genuine from fake merchandise, some dependable trade n ame s, an d h ow to de t erm ine value."

The sp ir it of t he s a murai lives on today in the practitioners of iaido, kendo, and the other marital arts.
