"Controlling one of the greatest forces in international affairs, the Director-General of the B.B.C. has attained a position of power second only to that of a Prime Minister. He directs a machine that produces mass-education, mass-entertainment, and mass-information for continuous consumption by millions of the peoples of this country and every overseas nation of the Commonwealth. (His life story) is here told in full for the first time, and makes sensational revelations of the career and character of this remarkable, but unknown man. (It) is superimposed on the background of the romance of radio itself, and which clearly shows how, for this man of destiny, the man and his destiny were being developed on parallel lines. Interesting glimpses are given of those who were creating the new science in readiness for the Reith era, and fascinating disclosures are made from inside the B.B.C. itself."

112 pp + blank pages for notes, oblong (7 15/16" H x 10 1/2" D). No date. Erratum sheet laid in. "From aviation's earliest days, pilots of aircraft have been conscious of the need for accurate directional information. The development of the magnetic and gyro compass has, for general purposes, kept pace with aviation needs in most areas of the world. Flight operations in Northern Canada, however, present problems which are unique by virtue of the position of the North Magnetic Pole. - - In response to a need for the provision of directional information simply and to within one degree the Flight Standards and Regulations Division of the Civil Aviation Branch has arranged the development of these tables from which the Sun's True Bearing can be extracted directly knowing date, correct Local Civil time (within reasonable limits) and approximate Latitude and Longitude. - - It is also significant to note that these Tables are not limited to Canada only, but include any areas of the earth north of 40 degrees North Latitude, and for all practical purposes will maintain usable accuracy for an indefinite period." From the Foreword. Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownwership marks. Exterior - small soiling mark on top of textblock, some very light rubbing/soiling on rear cover.

447 pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w photographs, reproductions. "(T)he compelling saga of an artistic genius, a ruthless railroad tycoon, and a sordid crime of passion. In frontier California 130 years ago, English immigrant Eadweard Muybridge managed to capture time and play it back on a screen, inventing stop-motion photography and moving pictures, breakthrough technologies that ushered in our age of visual media. Bankrolling his endeavor was tycoon (and former California governor) Leland Stanford, who built the west half of the transcontinental railroad and personally drove in the last golden spike. Stanford's particular obsession was whether the four hooves of a running horse ever left the ground all at once, and with Muybridge he found an answer. But personal disaster overshadowed Muybridge's remarkable achievements. A visionary artist, and technically brilliant, he was also a murderer." Very light wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, minor rubbing.

New York Alfred A. Knopf 2013 0307266427 / 9780307266422 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
430 pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w illustrations. "A consideration of all things paper - its invention that revolutionized human civilization; its thousandfold uses (and misuses), proliferation, and sweeping influence on society; its makers, shapers, collectors, and pulpers. Nicholas Basbanes writes about paper, from its invention in China two thousand years ago to its ideal means, recording the thoughts of Islamic scholars and mathematicians that made the Middle East a center of intellectual energy; from Europe, by way of Spain in the twelfth century and Italy in the thirteenth at the time of the Renaissance, to North America and the rest of the inhabited world. (He) writes about the ways in which paper has been used to record history, make laws, conduct business, and establish identities. He makes clear that without paper, modern hygienic practice would be unimaginable; that as currency, people will do almost anything to posses it - that the Industrial Revolution would never have happened without paper on which to draw designs and blueprints. We see paper's crucial role in the unfolding of historical events, political scandals, and sensational trials: how the American Revolution began with the Stamp Act of 1765 - the Dreyfus Affair and the forged memorandum known as 'the bordereau' - America's entry into World War I with the Zimmermann Telegram - the Alger Hiss spy case and Whittaker Chambers's testimony involving the notrious Pumpkin Papers - Daniel Ellsberg's release of the Pentagon Papers in 1971 and the scandal of Watergate - and so much more." Very small bumps and wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, very small remainder ink dot on bottom of text block. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds.

From the earliest times, the study of birds' ovaries and ova (eggs) has played a vital role in the quest to unravel the mysteries of fertilization and embryo development in humans and other animals. Birkhead uses birds' eggs as wondrous portals into natural history, enlivened by the stories of naturalists and scientists, including Birkhead himself and his students, whose discoveries have advanced current scientific knowledge of reproduction."
