Terence Dalton, Lavenham, 1979. 
172 pp, large 8vo (9 1/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0900963956 Map endpapers. B&w photographs, maps. "On the 20th August 1959 the prototype Victor Mark 2 bomber disappeared during flight trials over the Irish Sea. The captain of a coa ster bound from the Mersey to the Thames noticed a splash some eight miles away, when off the Pembrokeshire coast, reported it to Ilfracombe Radio Station and made a brief entry in the ship's log. From then on Operation Victor Search was und e r w a y . Controlled by H.M.S. Harrier it involved more than 40 ships and 4,000 men and women and was officially described as 'probably the greatest salvage operation of its type ever undertaken'. Those at sea toiled for long and arduous hours , of t en i n th e most atrocious weather, throughout a wild winter and much of the following year. When the final signal, 'Return to harbour - search complete' went out, the trawlers, backed by salvage vessels, had carried out more than 12,000 ha ul s a nd ne arl y 600 ,000 pieced of the missing Victor had been recovered. This represented 70 per cent of the aircraft and gave the Royal Aircraft Establishment, Farnborough, enough information for them to be 'reasonably satisfied' that they kn ew the cau se o f th e acci dent." Light wrinkling at top of spine and small bump at top of rear hinge. Dust jacket has light edge wear, light rubbing, wrinkling along top edge, small closed tear at top of rear hinge - archivally taped. Very Good /Ve ry G ood-

Charles C. Thomas, Springfield, Illinois, 1969. 
459 pp, large 8vo (9 3/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "Since the discovery by Aserinsky and Kleitman of an objective indicator of dreaming sleep, there have been a plethora of studies investigating the physiological parameters of the dreaming a nd non-dreaming sleep states. However, there has been an unfortunate neglect of the psychological concomitants of these states in most of this work. A comprehensive symposium which would bring together workers interested in the psychology o f d r e a m ing with those who worked with the REM technique for the collection of sleep mentation seemed desirable if the understanding of the psychology of dreaming was to keep pace and be integrated with the ever-increasing physiological know l ed ge . Th is v ol ume reports on a conference which focused both on the classical views of the nature of the dream as seen in the light of the findings coming from the REM studies and on the current attempts at exploring the content of REM coll ec ted dr ea m s. Th e i nte raction between the participants, those who articulated theoretical statements about the psychology of the dream, and those who examined dream content in various experimental ways, lead to further reintegrative efforts on bot h si des ."

FRONTLINE AIRLINE:  TROOP CARRIER PILOT IN WORLD WAR II., Lester, John R. (Bob), Lieutenant Colonel, USAF (Ret.)

192 pp, 8vo (8 15/16" H), soft cover. ISBN 0897451791 B&w photographs. "John R. Lester describes his work as a reminiscence - after 50 years - of being 19- or 20-something, with wings, in the whirlwind of war. His narrative reflects the innocent optimism, the adventure, and the youthful sense of immortality of the time - from induction through Cadet training to become a pilot. This is a personal odyssey into combat in a Troop Carrier Group of the 5th Air Force, from New Guinea to J a p a n . Troop Carrier, says the author, 'was a different breed of cat'. Although they hauled 'everything imaginable', their primary purpose was to put paratroopers and gliders into combat behind enemy lines and to maintain a conduit of supply fo r co mb at s i tutations, initially using the C-47 Skytrain and then the C-46 Commando." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - book is slightly cocked, very light edge wear, small area of surface paper loss o n f ro nt cov er due t o sticker removal.

Yet his call is so urgent that Mary sets off alone across the ocean to find him, braving the sea-voyage to Quebec, and makin g h e r w a y up the St. Lawrence until she finally comes to Hawthorn Bay on Lake Ontario - only to discover that Duncan is dead, and that her aunt and uncle have moved on. Mary is not just alone in this frightening land of primeval forests - sh e i s al so mi su nd e rstood by the practical Yankees who have settled in the district, and who distrust her powers of 'second sight' and her Gaelic belief in ghosts and witches. For despite Duncan's death, Mary still hears his voice calling her to j oi n h im. Bu t a s s he battles threatening dark forces and fights for her survival, Mary unexpectedly finds friendship - with cheerful Patty and little Henry, with Owena, the quiet Indian who recognizes the healing powers in her, and with Lu ke - s o ve ry d i ffer ent from 'D uncan the black'....an enthralling historical tale of mystery and love."

That reduces your living space to something nearer thirty-five feet. You have no to rpedo tubes, no armaments. You're not meant to be found or to fight a battle. From now on you're a sneaker. Inoffensive - until you release your side cargoes. Each one of those holds four tons of amatol explosive and a time clock. You d r o p t h o s e under that Jap cruiser's bottom and then run for your life....Peter Bentley had three weeks to learn to handle the midget submarine - three weeks to accomplish the secret and deadly mission that could be the turning point of the w ho le w ar . " In te rior - previous owner's name stamp on first page, light browning to pages, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - light edge wear, minor browning on rear cover.
