Fated Sky: Astrology in History, The

By Bobrick, Benson

Simon & Schuster, 2005. Hardcover book is in new, never been read condition. Dust jacket is in like new condition. Minor shelf wear on edges of dust jacket. Inside of book pages are crisp and clean, no stains. ISBN# 0743224825. 2005 edition. 384 pages long. Approx: 9.5 by 6.5 by 1.5. Publisher: Simon and Schuster. Additional pictures of condition are always available. BOOK DESCRIPTION: In this lively work, historian Bobrick (Wide as the Waters: The Story of the English Bible and the Revolution It Inspired) takes the reader on a kaleidoscopic journey through the history of the reading of the stars. As he shows, from astrology's birth 6,000 years ago in Babylonia to the Reagan White House, the stars have been studied, interpreted and followed: they drove Christopher Columbus to America, says Bobrick, and their study led to the sciences of astronomy and chemistry. While he gives a nod to the eastern mystics who originated astrology, Bobrick mostly traces the many threads of astrology as they weave through Western thought. Copernicus, Isaac Newton and even Martin Luther studied the astrology texts of their day, using them not only for personal guidance but as a tool in their own remarkable work. Attacked by establishment churches and debunked and scoffed at by contemporary science, astrology has stayed with us and flourishes. Astrology goes far beyond the daily horoscopes in newspapers as Bobrick illustrates in his appealing history of the study of the stars and how they affect the destinies of people and events. Bobrick traces the origins of astrology back to Mesopotamia, 4,000 years before the birth of Christ. Astrology played an important part in Roman politics, with the emperors paying particular attention to their astrologers. It also figures into biblical lore, as Bobrick acknowledges that the Magi are identified as astrologers in most contemporary translations of the Bible. Personal horoscope charts were all the rage during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries: astrologers had offices complete with globes and astrolabes where clients would visit to have their stars read based on the exact time and date of their birth.. First Edition. Hard Cover. New/As New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Plague

By Orent, Wendy

Free Press, 2004. Hardcover book is in new, never been read condition. Dust jacket is in like new condition. Minor wear on top front edges of dust jacket. Inside of book pages are crisp and clean, no stains. Publisher: Free Press. 288 pages long. 2004 edition. Size: 9 by 6 by 1. ISBN# 0743236858. Additional pictures of condition are always available. BOOK DESCRIPTION: Plague is a terrifying mystery. In the Middle Ages, it wiped out 40 million people -- 40 percent of the total population in Europe. Seven hundred years earlier, the Justinian Plague destroyed the Byzantine Empire and ushered in the Middle Ages. The plague of London in the seventeenth century killed more than 1,000 people a day. In the early twentieth century, plague again swept Asia, taking the lives of 12 million in India alone. Even more frightening is what it could do to us in the near future. Before the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russian scientists created genetically altered, antibiotic-resistant and vaccine-resistant strains of plague that can bypass the human immune system and spread directly from person to person. These weaponized strains still exist, and they could be replicated in almost any laboratory. Wendy Orent's Plague pieces together a fascinating and terrifying historical whodunit. Drawing on the latest research in labs around the world, along with extensive interviews with American and Soviet plague experts, Orent offers nothing less than a biography of a disease. Plague helped bring down the Roman Empire and close the Middle Ages; it has had a dramatic impact on our history, yet we still do not fully understand its own evolution. Orent's retelling of the four great pandemics makes for gripping reading and solves many puzzles. Why did some pandemics jump from person to person, while others relied on insects as carriers? Why are some strains more virulent than others? Orent reveals the key differences among rat-based, prairie dog-based, and marmot-based plague. The marmots of Central Asia, in particular, have long been hosts to the most virulent and frightening form of the disease, a form that can travel around the world in the blink of an eye. From its ability to hide out in the wild, only to spring back into humanity with a terrifying vengeance, to its elusive capacity to develop suddenly greater virulence and transmissibility, plague is a protean nightmare. To make matters worse, Orent's disturbing revelations about the former Soviet bioweapon programs suggest that the nightmare may not be over. Plague is chilling reading at the dawn of a new age of bioterrorism.. First Printing. Hard Cover. New/As New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Gary Null's Ultimate Anti-Aging Program

By Null, Gary

Broadway Books, 1999. Paperback book is in new, never been read condition. Inside of book pages are crisp and clean. No creasing on edges, no stains, no dog ears. Very minor shelf wear on outside of paperback cover. Publisher: Broadway. ISBN 0767904362. 1999 edition. 608 pages. Additional pictures of condition are always available. BOOK DESCRIPTION: He tested the program on a group of 1,000 volunteers, who give glowing testimonials about their experiences: "I can see a marked improvement in my mind, spirit, and body"; "Letting go of sugar has been great"; "I lost 20 pounds without dieting!" Null then explains the multipronged antiaging "protocol." First, he advises that you detoxify your body to prevent aging from free-radical damage; then, fortify your immune system with proper nutrition; and lastly, build bone mass (through diet and exercise) to prevent osteoporosis and weakness. This isn't a quick-fix program; it fills nearly 300 pages, with suggestions ranging from sealing off the vents from your garage to your house to drinking a gallon of purified water a day. Null also suggests a low-fat, organic diet, including herbs, nutrients, and other supplements (including acetyl-L-carnitine, phosphatidylserine, zinc, and many in between) that he says may extend life and that helped him run a 50K national championship. The final segment covers "mental gymnastics," including a self-quiz to analyze your value system, levels of anger and stress, and their potential detrimental effects on your health. This is a comprehensive health program, but one that requires a good deal of dedication. Though not a medical doctor, Null (Get Healthy Now) has authored many health books on subjects ranging from allergies to Native American healing. Central to this program is the author's conviction that aging results from the toxic effects of free radicals, molecules that have unpaired electrons that damage the body when they try to steal electrons from other cells. Eliminating or reducing toxins and stress from one's diet and environment can lessen the number of free radicals and thus slow, and even reverse, the aging process. Null advocates an exercise program and an organic vegetarian diet in conjunction with herb and vitamin supplements to detoxify the body. Lacking in both scientific data to support many of his claims and step-by-step directions to implement them, Null's "program," narrated by Robert Deyan, is mostly a description of the possible ways to treat a copious number of medical conditions..

Boy on The Bus, The

By Schupack, Deborah

The Free Press, 2003. Hardcover book in near fine condition with dust jacket in same condition. Pages are crisp and clean, like it hasn't been read. Book is 215 pages long. ISBN 0743242203. The Free Press. 2003 edition. Additional pictures of condition are always available. BOOK DESCRIPTION: With this unexpectedly impressive debut novel of psychological mystery, Schupack boldly announces her presence at the table of writers who deserve to be heard. Meg Landry expected it to be a day like any other-her asthmatic 8 year old son would step off the bus, home from school. But on this day, the boy on the bus is not is not Meg's son - or at least doesn't appear to be. This new boy shares Charlie's copper hair, tea brown eyes, and slight frame. But there is something profoundly, if indefinably, different about him. He has a finer nose, his skin is shinier, and his face looks more mature, as if he has grown into being Charlie more than the real Charlie ever had. In the wake of Meg's quiet alarm, her far flung family returns home, and a jangly unease sets in. Neither Charlie's father nor his rebellious sister can help Meg settle the question of the boy. They look to her for certainty--after all, shouldn't a mother know her own child? In this daring novel, Deborah dissects a family stretched out along the seams of postmodern small town life. With the precision of a literary wordsmith, Schupack has crafted an extraordinary tale of a mother's love for her son and a mystery that may ultimately rip them apart. Tense and atmospheric, this debut is a rare combination of intellectual sophistication and page-turning suspense. . Hard Cover. As New/As New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Natural Library of Color - Horses & Foals

By Crescent Books

Spain: Crescent Books, 1981. Hardcover book is NEAR FINE condition with a dust jacket in same condition. Slight shelf wear on dust jacket. Book is 60 pages long and is approx. ISBN 0517350297. 1981 edition. 9.25" wide by 11.5" high. Printed in Spain and is loaded with color pictures. Publisher Crescent Books. BOOK DESCRIPTION: Man has relied upon the horse for centuries - without it our lives would be very different. Imagine history without this faithful, reliable creature - lack of transportation would have meant lack of exploration, wars would perhaps have taken a completely different course, communities would have remained in isolation. We owe our present freedom and knowledge to this noble animal. Although no longer as valuable to us in its working capacity because of the increase in mechanization, the horse is taking on a different role, that of companion. With the increase in leisure time, people are discovering the joys that riding can bring, and more and more youngsters yearn to keep their own horse. After so many centuries of hard work, it is perhaps time that the horse had a well-deserved rest, even though some may argue that show jumping, horse racing and the mere presence of a rider could hardly be called rest. Nevertheless, the usefulness of the horse is far from over. Horses and Foals, with its beautiful pictures and interesting text, is an attempt to bring these wonderful creatures alive for the reader. It traces their ancestry, from the Dawn Horse to the present day Thoroughbred, and covers a variety of aspects from their role in agriculture to their own version of Body Language, from play to their contribution to sport. A small section on the importance of diet and grooming is included, as these play such a vital part in the well-being of the horse. Whatever its use in the future, it is hoped that man has learned to appreciate the horse for the true friend it has become. Any questions, please email me. . First English Edition. Hard Cover. As New/As New. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
