141 Morelli, Marcello, editor. (Maria Luisa Moncassoli Tibone, Salvatore Ciro Nappo, Milena Ercole Pozzoli, Giuseppe Mazzocchi, Michael Leech, Maria Longhena, Paola Calore, Heidi Bocker, Peter Kristiansen, Frantisek Kadlec, Thomas Thiis-Evensen, et al. THE WORLD'S GREATEST ROYAL PALACES. INCLUDING THE ROYAL PALACES OF OSLO, STOCKHOLM AND COPENHAGEN.
Grange, Hoo, Rochester, 2000. 
304 pp, folio (14 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1840133732 Profusely illustrated in colour. "Built to astonish and to celebrate the magnificence of the most powerful families in the world, royal palaces and houses are the consequences of an age in which the splendor and opulence of a prince or a people could be measured by the decor of a salon, by the grandeur of a building or the originality of a fountain. Suspended between the sky and the earth, as occurred in the Far East, or solidly rooted to the ground, as was the norm in Europe, the house of the monarch has alwys been the meeting point of two minds: that of the master, who saw in his house the expression of his power and creativity, and that of the architect a n d t e a m s of craftsmen who built it for him, often creating a noble monument rather than a place to live....This book tells of the mysteries and legends of the buildings and the official and secret versions of the history of their occupants. T he t e xt i s co mplemented by a series of splendid photographs that together offer the reader a visit through space and time to the most famous palaces of the world where the lives of royal families and their courts burned bright and where bea uty mi xed w ith po we r."

POINT OF NO RETURN: THE STORY OF THE TWENTIETH AIR FORCE., Morrison, Wilbur H.
142 Morrison, Wilbur H. POINT OF NO RETURN: THE STORY OF THE TWENTIETH AIR FORCE.
Times Books, New York, 1979, second printing. 
278 pp, large 8vo (9 3/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0812907388 B&w illustrations. "The epic story of how the Twentieth Air Force was built into the most advanced strategic weapon of World War II and the prototype for today's Strategic A ir Command is filled with action, heroic adventures, and technological triumphs. (This book) describes the expert teamwork which offset the tremendous obstacles facing General Henry ('Hap') Arnold, Chief of Army Air Corps, from the outset. T h e B - 2 9 had to be designed, built, tested, and proved in an impossibly short time. But perhaps the greatest enemy of all was geography: The men in General Curtis LeMay's command flew B-29s carrying their own fuel over the Himalayas from Indi a, w he r e th ey were based for operations over China, Southeast Asia, and ultimately, Japan. Replete with firsthand reports and anecdotes, here are accounts of air battles against suicidal Japanese pilots, and of political infighting. The cast of ch ara ct er s i ncl udes supporters such as FDR and General George Marshall, and such prominent wartime figures as Chennault, Stilwell, and Chiang Kai-shek. The author details LeMay's little-known, successful tactic that wiped out virtually e very maj or J apa nes e ci ty l ong before the A-bombs were dropped. (He) argues convincingly that LeMay's strategy made not only the American atom bombing of Japan unnecessary, but also the development and future use of nuclear weapons."

From childhood to adolesc e n c e , to wartime service with the U.S. Army in the Southwest Pacific, from exploring the vast sand dunes of Lake Athabasca to excavating a 3000-year-old-site he discovered west of Winnipeg, Nero allows us to share his enthusiasm and excitement in o ut do or adventures."

146 Nichol, Eric, editor. (Francis Dickens.) DICKENS OF THE MOUNTED: THE ASTONISHING LONG-LOST LETTERS OF INSPECTOR F. DICKENS NWMP, 1874-1886.
Toronto McClelland & Stewart 1989 0771068077 / 9780771068072 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good+ 
294 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). Map on front endpapers, reproductions of letters on rear endpapers. "Few people know that Charles Dickens had a son who served in the North-West Mounted Police in the days when the Canadian West was wild. Those historians who mention his twelve years in the force (1874-1886) dismiss him as a round peg in a square hole, a fat, stammering, slightly deaf, alcoholic Englishman with a tendency to fall off his horse in the course of tense confrontations with Indian warriors. These recently discovered letters home to England set the record straight, and reveal the true Dickens. Not only do these letters tell us much about the Dickens family, even to the point of parodying 'Pa's' purple prose, they also tell us a great deal about early Canada as Dickens saw it in Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, and Winnipeg, and in forts all across the prairies. Dickens met everyone worth meeting in the West - including Crowfoot, Gabriel Dumont, Sam Steele, Jerry Potts, and Louis Riel - and even encountered famous visitors such as Sitting Bull, the Governor General, and Col. Harry Flashman (whom he calls 'a humbug'). And while he may have blotted his copy-book surrendering Fort Pitt to Riel's rebels, we learn here that he deserves credit for inspiring the Mounties' Musical Ride and the phrase 'a Mountie always gets his man'. Editor Nichol's wonderful skills have brought this man so alive that when we part from Frank Dickens at the end of the book, we do so with the sense of having lost a friend." Small area of light browning on top of text block. Dust jacket has tiny dent on rear panel, very minor edge wrinkling.

THE CREATURE IN THE MAP:  A JOURNEY TO EL DORADO., Nicholl, Charles.
147 Nicholl, Charles. THE CREATURE IN THE MAP: A JOURNEY TO EL DORADO.
New York William Morrow 1995 0688146007 / 9780688146009 First American Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
398 pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w illustrations. "In May 1595, a hundred Englishmen - 'gentlemen, soldiers, rowers, boat-keepers, boys, and of all sorts' - rowed up a river in South America in search of the lost golden city of El Dorado. They were led by Sir Walter Ralegh, forty years old, ready to hazard his fading reputation on this doomed gamble. Four hundred years later Charles Nicholl follows their trail into the strange terrain of this enduring international obsession. The journey begins with Ralegh's curious 'charte' in the British Museum and leads through the labyrinthine delta of the Orinoco River and up into the rugged Guiana highlands of southern Venezuela, the setting of Conan Doyle's 'The Lost World'. A night with a Warao tobacco shaman, an encounter with the jungle-hermit Laime, bush pilot Jimmy Angel's stories of earlier days, life in the shantytowns of the region's gold diggers - these color and deepen the book's intense recollection of that original Elizabethan expedition. In this vivid reconstruction, Nicholls blends historical scholarship with idiosyncratic reportage in a unique and fascinating mix." Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has some light wrinkling at top of spine and top edge, slight fading to some of the spine and front hinge colour.

ISBN 1555714986 "On 7 August 1942, the amphibious assault on Tulagi and Guadalcanal was the first American offensive in World War II against the rampaging forces of the Empire of Japan. The enemy retaliatio n - from the sea, air and on land - was swift, fierce and bloody. Yet many soldiers contend the greatest struggle of all was confronting the 'Green Hell' - a reeking, rotting and malaria-infested jungle that tested any soldier's strength and c o u r a g e. Against all odds, the young and inadequately trained and supplied 1st Marine Division, commanded by Lt. General Archer Vandergrift and the Army's equally inexperienced 164th Infantry Regiment held onto Guadalcanal for four awesome m o nt hs a ga in st the best trained and seasoned forces that Japan sent in. Every aspect of the battle remains impressive. From the assistance of the Australian Coastwatchers who hid away in dangerous observation points along the Solomon's chain o f i sla nds to th e A rmy and 2nd Marine Division's actions in the last two months of the campaign."

HEMINGWAY AND FILM., Phillips, Gene D.  Introduction by Carlos Baker.  (Ernest Hemingway.)

Frederick Unger, New York, 1980. 
192 pp, 8 3/16" H, soft cover. ISBN 0804466440 B&w photographs. "Ernest Hemingway's fiction presents the film adaptor with special problems....In his penetrating study, Gene Phillips pinpoints the difficulty in turning Hemingway's subtle fiction into movie material. Some of Hollywood's finest talents have responded to the challenge. Beginning in 1932 with Frank Borazge's 'A Farewell to Arms', starring Gary Cooper and Helen Hayes, several directors have tried their hand - Sam Wood ('For Wh om the Bell Tolls', 1943), Howard Hawks ('To Have and to Have Not', 1944), and Henry King ('The Sun Also Rises', 1957). They drew on the not inconsiderable skills of such screenwriters as Dudley Nichols, William Faulkner, and John Houston. The r e s ults met with varying success. In exploring the reasons why, the book draws added validity from interviews with many of the directors and cinematographers involved in the persistent attempts to translate Hemingway into cinematic images. Carl os B ak er's moving essay, 'Hemingway's Last Appeal', sets the tone for this thematic investigation. For the interested reader or film student, the book also includes a filmography, selected bibliography, and photographs."

Each essay brings readers into contact with broadly ranging evidence, as well as a wide variety of approaches that are needed to study basic questions about the Roman world. Essays explore the Roman family, gender definition, demography, Roman food supply, Roman religion, and the wide variety of public entertainment throughout the empire.

158 Rabl, S.S. MOBTOWN CLIPPER.
Cornell Maritime Press, Cambridge, Maryland, 1949, Ist edition. 
277 pp, 8vo, hard cover in dust jacket. "The year 1809 found shipping in the young American Republic paralyzed by the Embargo Act of Thomas Jefferson, its President. From this beginning, Mr. Rabl has unfolded a thrilling tale of men, ships and privateering in the War of 1812...the story of Eduardo Chavez who dreamed of a ship that would outsail and out-maneuver any ship afloat; of Captain Thomas Boyle, America's greatest daredevil and fun-loving Irishman, who sent his Proclamation to Great Britain's rulers putting the United Kingdom and Ireland under rigorous blockade; of beautiful and vivacious Rose LeCompte who loved a man she could not have. But most of all, it is the story of the clipper ship, Chasseur, the visions and the heartaches that went into her building, the thrills and excitement of her battles as a privateer and her many episodes as a merchantman in the China trade. With Baltimore as the focal point during the War of 1812, this story of Tom Boyle and the Chasseur, offering all the action, color and romance of the period, is made intensely vivid through Mr. Rabl's wide experience with ships and the sea."
