New York Grand Central 2015 1455578525 / 9781455578528 Hard Cover Very Good+ Near Fine 
317 pp, 9 1/2" H. "We are all aware of the power of money - how it influences our moods, compels us to take risks, and serves as the yardstick of success in societies around the world. Yet because we take the daily reality of money so completely for granted, we seldom question how and why it has come to play such a central role in our lives. (The author) casts aside our workaday assumptions about money and takes the reader on a global quest to uncover a deeper understanding of the relationship between money and humankind. More than a mere history of its subject, this riveting book probes the conceptual origins and evolution of money by examining it through the multiple lenses of disciplines as varied as biology, psychology, anthropology, and theology. 'Coined' is not only a profoundly informative discussion of the concept of money, but it is also an endlessly fascinating and entertaining take on the nature of humanity and the inner workings of the mind." Very light wrinkle at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has very minor wrinkle at top of rear hinge.

That is where the hero spent his childhood, and that was his point of departure on a voyage in the best 'Treasure Island' vein that carried him to the other side of the world and back. The story is exciting without putting any undue strain on the reader's credulity, and the atmosphere and local colour of the period are well preserved." In Painted Ports, "Barty Dale is anxiously waiting to go to sea, in spite of the hardships endured in the past. When he does at last succeed in becoming an apprentice aboard the 'Sir Thomas Hobson', he is full of excitement at the thought of what lies ahead. Though misfortune follows him wherever he goes, Barty remains undaunted. After escaping from a French privateer, he finds some strange friends, and experiences an even stranger ending to his voyage." The ship Aground has light browning in page margins, one tiny corner bump, archivally taped edge tears to last two pages, light browning to edges of text block.

229 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w photographs, drawings (by the author). "Cornelius Cole Smith was above all else a professional soldier. His army career spanned thirty turbulent years, April 9, 1890 to April 9, 1920. He witnessed the transformation of the United States from a second-class military power prior to the Spanish-American War to the most powerful nation on earth after World War I. He participated in the final Indian campaigns, the brutal conquest of the Moros on the Philippine Islands and the birth pangs of the American Labor Movement. This varied career took 'Corney' Smith from the sun-baked deserts of Arizona to the bone-chilling plains of the Dakotas, from the tropical jungles of Mindano to the beautiful parks of the Sierra Nevada, and from fever-ridden camps in Tampa to a diplomatic post in Bogota. Regardless of the surroundings, he brought the same diligence and professionalism to each assignment. (This) soldier's writings of his life and times provide the basis for a forthright glimpse into another era. His voluminous diaries and reminiscences amount to a second career which added lustre to the first. Corney's perceptive and continuing observations reveal the excitement, color, pathos and suffering that surrounded him." Very minor edge wear.

"To find the origin of the Gurkha soldier we must go back to the year 1814 - a year in which the British Army fought a war agaisnt one of the toughest enem ies it had ever encountered, before or since: the Gurkhas. Since that year, when they were finally forced to unwilling subjection, the Gurkhas have been 'on our side' in every war fought by Great Britain. One regiment of Gurkhas became te n , a n d i n the latter part of the nineteenth century they fought shoulder to shoulder with British soldiers at Bhurtpore, in the Sikh War, in the Indian Mutiny and the Afghan War. In the First World War, Gurkha battalions were to be found wh er ev e r th e f ig ht ing was most deadly: in France, at Gallipoli, in Palestine and Mesopotamia. For Gurkha regiments there was no 'peacetime' in its literal sense between the two world wars, for they constantly stood watch on India's North-West Fro nti er . An d in th e S econd World War Nepal sent nearly a quarter of a million men to fight against Germany and Japan. The end of the war against Japan brought no peace to the Far East; it also produced the partition of India and the inevit able run dow n of t he In dian Arm y Gurkha regiments. Great Britain retained the 2nd, 6th, 7th and 10th Gurkha Rifles, while the remaining six regiments remained in the newly consituted Indian Army. Brigadier 'Birdie' Smith - himself a distin guish ed an d mu ch deco rat ed G urkha offi cer - tells the story of these four regiments, now known as Britain's Brigade of Gurkhas. It is a story of gallantry in battle, of unswerving loyalty and fortitude."

"This study of the life and work of Andre Bieler, one of Canada's most important living artists, spans eighty-three years of his life and art in Europe, the United States and Canada. It studies him against the flowering of twentieth-century Canadian art, a fascinating history in itself. (S)tarts with (his) birth in Switzerland in 1896, tracing his European family roots, his World War I experiences and his traditional artist's apprenticeship in Europe, his arrival in Canada as a young artist and subsequent exploration of the rural 'habitant' way of life in Quebec's L'ile d'Orleans and on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River. Most important, the author shows us the extraordinary creative energy of Andre Bieler, his exuberance and intense love of people and life that, even in his eighties, keep him experimenting in art, traveling across Canada, Europe and Mexico in search of his subject, and which define him as an artist of classic, versatile and sustained talent."
