304 pp, large 8vo (10" H). B&w photographs, maps, drawings. "(A) magnificent tribute to the men and machines of 112 recording their history from the First World War to the mid-Seventies when the Squadron was disbanded. Included in the book are appendices that list the squadron's 'victory' claims, its aircrew losses in the air, known serial numbers and aircraft destroyed or damaged as a result of enemy action.

Their travels take them from San Francisco to the islands of Hawaii, where the mysterious menehune - the faerie spirits of the Pacific Isles - hold secrets long forgotten by their western cousins. Yet even as they pursue their goal, others are sworn to stop them. Backed by the forces of the Unseelie Shadow Court, the Forsworn Prince also seeks the way back to Arcadia, for his own dark purposes."

254 pp, 8 1/2" H.. "The harp was a gift from Jacky Lantern's fey kin, as was the music Angharad pulled from its strings. She used it in her journeys through the kingdoms of the Green Isles, to wake the Summerblood where it lay sleeping in folk who had never known they were witches. This was the way the Middle Kingdom survived - by being remembered, by its small magics being served, by the interchange of wisdom and gossip between man and those he shared the world with - the birds, the bests, the hills, the trees. Harping, she knew, was one third of a bard's spells. Harping and poetry, and the road that led into the green - ." Slight lean to spine, bump at top of spine, minor bump at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has crease down the top half of the spine, a few small edge tears and creases, some wear at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, two very small dents on front hinge, protected in a mylar sleeve.

(It's) the story of Canada's only major league championship team, barnstorming Japanese Canadians, Slapsie Maxies Curvaceous Cuties, Nazi baseball riots in Toronto, Lester Pearson's diamond diplomacy, Babe Ruth's first professional career homerun (hit in Toronto, Ontario) as well as the birth of the Expos and Blue Jays."

But the Gram Tam has (made a) contract; magification must take place.

This is the second story about Diddlesdorf and its wizard." Small "C" stamped on title page, light browning to page edges. Dust jacket is price-clipped, light edgewear/wrinkling/rubbing.
