Walt Disney's Annette: Mystery at Medicine Wheel

By Meyers, Barlow

Enjoyable little romp with Annette as she serves out her summer punishment (for buying a prom dress at too pricey a cost) working on a Wyoming ranch. Stereotypical, rather odd, a portrayal of John the Native American ranch hand. Otherwise, it's a typical Whitman series mystery with lots of horses thrown in! Excellent copy of a very rare out-of-print children's book. A mild light mustard coloring on pages but a tight and very good copy of this book. Bo tears or marring.

Trixie Belden and the Happy Valley Mystery

By Kenny, Kathryn

Setting : Happy Valley Farm, Iowa. Synopsis : The Bob-Whites, minus Dan, spend their Spring break at Andrew Belden's farm, while he is away in Scotland. Trixie is keen to solve the mystery of the missing sheep, but the Bob-Whites find themselves with their hand's full learning about farm life and getting to know the locals. Trixie becomes jealous of a glamorous blonde who seems to enamor Jim, while she attracts the attention of the star athlete, Ned Schultz. But these things are cast aside when Trixie, Jim, and Honey find themselves trapped in a flood and facing the most dangerous situation of their lives. Characters : Trixie Belden Jim Frayne - newly adopted son of the Wheeler's Honey Wheeler - Trixie's best friend Brian Belden - Trixie's eldest brother Mart Belden - Trixie's "almost twin" brother Diana Lynch - a classmate and neighbor Hank Gorman - Farm Manager Mary Gorman - his wife Ben - hired hand at Happy Valley Farm Ned Schulz - the son of a neighbor Dot Murray - a beautiful, blonde classmate of Ned's Bob Hubbell - a schoolmate of Ned's Barbara Hubbell - Bob's twin sister Mrs. Schulz - Ned's mother, who was stricken with polio when Ned was five Sheriff Joe Brown - Valley Park Sheriff Villains : Jake Burton and Randy Miller - the sheep thieves Points of Interest: This book really tries to show Trixie and the Bob-Whites as ordinary teenagers who make mistakes. The Bob-Whites make a big mistake and risk the whole flock of sheep, but they work hard to right their mistake. They are fiercely protective of Westchester County and defend it to the hilt. Trixie and Honey aren't perfect skaters and get shown up easily by a glamorous blonde rival. Trixie, Jim, and Honey make an error of judgment and endanger their lives in the most perilous situation they have ever faced. Trixie is jealous of the attention Jim is paying Dot Murray, but she receives just as much attention from Ned. Could Jim have been jealous of Ned? Stack continues to feminize Trixie and makes her aware of her tomboy behavior and she tries to rectify it. The relationship between Jim and Trixie grows closer and he becomes more open about his feelings for her. Trixie wonders about his feelings for her and in the first two editions of this book, she expresses her thoughts. However, these lines (in blue) were removed for the deluxe and subsequent editions of the book. This climaxes at the conclusion of the book when he gives her an ID bracelet with his name on it. This passage remained intact until a later print run of the oval paperbacks, in which a line (in blue) was omitted. Why it was present in the first paperback printing, then later removed remains a mystery that only Trixie could solve. Jim reminds Brian that he's supposed to be the conservative one (p. 69). Diana can play the piano. Did she learn this after her father made his millions? The Beldens apparently had a cow, because Brian and Trixie helped deliver a calf. Also, they helped deliver a foal from one of the Wheeler's mares (p. 126). Mart claims he's a Scout and implies that Jim and Brian are too (p. 139). Di states that they have ten pen pals from India, Africa, and South America and Trixie reveals that they fundraise by selling UNICEF stationery (p. 149). The puppy Trixie, Honey and Jim find in the flood is named Moses.

The Happy Hollisters On A River Trip

By West, Jerry

This series recounts the adventures of a young American middle-class family solving mysteries from their home on Pine Lake in the city of Shoreham (no state is ever provided). The Hollister family includes five children, their parents, a family of cats, a dog, and a burro. Pete is the oldest of the Hollister children and is 12 years old. Pam, or Pamela, is 10 years old and very adventurous. Ricky is a red-headed, rambunctious 7-year-old and Holly is a 6-year-old tomboy. The youngest is Sue, age 4. Their father, Mr. John Hollister, owns a general store named The Trading Post, where he sells hardware, sporting goods, and toys. Mrs. Elaine Hollister tries to help her children solve mysteries and is always ready with handy tips for solving cases. Joey Brill and Will Wilson appear as rivals of the Hollister family in most books.

Usually, their disruptive actions are shown to be the result of lack of awareness, apathy, or indifference, rather than malicious motives.

Tom Swift and His Motor Boat

By Appleton, Victor

Tom Swift is the eponymous hero in the 38 volume Tom Swift series published by Grosset & Dunlap from 1910 to 1935 and two Whitman Better Little Books published 1938 to 1941. The stories are basically adventure tales with Tom's latest invention being heavily involved in the plot. When Grosset & Dunlap began publishing the stories, the dust jackets were a tan/brown paper, with the same quad design as used on the cover. In 1910 only, the DJ was a single color. In 1911 this was changed to 2 colors. The paper was changed to white starting with volume 11. Beginning with volume 21 in 1918, the DJs were changed to a 2 color process (referred to by collectors as "Duotone") illustrating a scene allegedly from the story. Beginning with volume 27 in 1924, this was changed to a full-color process. Covers that were previously printed using the 2 color method were changed to full color. Although in most instances the same basic scene is depicted on these covers, the artwork is entirely new. The quad and Duotone jackets are far harder to find than their full-color counterparts.This book has some loose pages and mustard coloring but does not impede the reading. this book is out-of-print and a first edition. Book has softened upper spine end; mild foxing and shelving soil upper page edges

The Song of Bernadette

The Song of Bernadette

By Werfel, Franz

Originally published as 'Das Lied Von Bernadette' in 1941 by Bermann-Fischer of Stockholm. The Song of Bernadette is a reverent recounting of the life of St. Bernadette of Lourdes. François Soubirous (Roman Bohnen), a former miller now unemployed, is forced to take odd jobs and live at the city jail with his wife (Anne Revere), his two sons, and his two daughters. One morning he goes to find work and is told to take contaminated trash from the hospital and dump it in the cave at Massabielle.At the Catholic school (run by the Sisters of Charity of Nevers) that she and her sisters attend, fourteen-year-old Bernadette Soubirous (Jennifer Jones) is shamed in front of the class by Sister Vauzous, the teacher (Gladys Cooper), for not having learned her catechism well. Her sister Marie (Ermadean Walters) explains that Bernadette was out sick with asthma. Abbé Dominique Peyramale (Charles Bickford) enters and awards the students holy cards, but is told by Sister Vauzous that Bernadette does not deserve one because she has not studied and that it would not be fair to the other students. Peyramale encourages Bernadette to study harder.Later that afternoon, on an errand with her sister Marie and school friend Jeanne (Mary Anderson) to collect firewood outside the town of Lourdes, Bernadette is left behind when her companions warn her not to wade through the cold river by the Massabielle caves for fear of taking ill. About to cross anyway, Bernadette is distracted by a strange breeze and a change in the light. Investigating the cave, she finds a beautiful lady (Linda Darnell) standing in the brilliant light, holding a pearl rosary. She tells her sister and friend, who promise not to tell anyone else. They do tell, however, and the story soon spreads all over town.Many, including Bernadette's Aunt Bernarde (Blanche Yurka), are convinced of her sincerity and stand up for her against her disbelieving parents, but Bernadette faces civil and church authorities alone. Repeatedly questioned, she stands solidly behind her seemingly unbelievable story and continues to return to the cave as the lady has asked. She faces ridicule as the lady tells her to drink and wash at a spring that doesn't exist, but digs a hole in the ground and uses the wet sand and mud. The water begins to flow later and exhibits miraculous healing properties. The lady finally identifies herself as "the Immaculate Conception". Civil authorities try to have Bernadette declared insane, while Abbé Peyramale, the fatherly cleric who once doubted her and now becomes her staunchest ally, asks for a formal investigation to find out if Bernadette is a fraud, insane, or genuine.The grotto is closed and the Bishop of Tarbes (Charles Waldron) declares that unless the Emperor (Jerome Cowan) orders the grotto to be opened, there will be no investigation by the church. He says this will be a test for Bernadette's "lady". Shortly thereafter, the Emperor's infant son falls ill and, under instructions from the Empress (Patricia Morison), the child's nanny obtains a bottle of the water. Arrested for violating the closure order, she appears in court, identifies herself as the Empress' employee, and pays the fines of the other persons who attempted to enter the grotto, so that they need serve no time in jail. The magistrate permits her to go and to take the bottle of water with her. The Emperor's son drinks the water and recovers. The Empress believes that his recovery is miraculous, but the Emperor is not sure. The Empress upbraids him for doubting God, and at her insistence, the Emperor gives the order to reopen the grotto. The Bishop of Tarbes then directs the commission to convene. The investigation takes many years, and Bernadette is questioned again and again, but the commission eventually determines that Bernadette experienced visions and was visited by the Virgin Mary, the Mother of God.Bernadette prefers to go on with an ordinary life, work, and possible marriage, but Peyramale does not think it is appropriate to turn Bernadette loose in the world and persuades her to become a nun at the motherhouse of the Sisters of Charity in Nevers, the Saint Gildard Convent. She is subjected to normal although rigorous spiritual training and hard work, but also emotional abuse from a cold and sinister Sister Vauzous, her former school teacher, who is now mistress of novices at the convent. Sister Vauzous is skeptically jealous of all the attention Bernadette has been receiving as a result of the visions. She reveals this to Bernadette, saying she is angry that God would choose Bernadette instead of her when she has spent her life in suffering in service of God. She says Bernadette has not suffered enough and wants a "sign" proving Bernadette really was chosen by Heaven.Bernadette makes a revelation to Sister Vauzous which is later diagnosed as tuberculosis of the bone. The condition causes intense pain, yet Bernadette has never complained or so much as mentioned it. The jealous sister, realizing her error and Bernadette's saintliness, begs for forgiveness in the chapel and vows to serve Bernadette for the rest of her life. Knowing she is dying, Bernadette sends for Abbé Peyramale (who in reality died a few years before Bernadette) and tells him of her feelings of unworthiness and her concern that she will never see the lady again. But the lady appears in the room, smiling and holding out her arms. Only Bernadette can see her, however, and with a cry of "I love you! I love you! Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for me", she reaches out to the apparition and falls back dead. Peyramale utters the final words of the film, "You are now in Heaven and on earth. Your life begins, O Bernadette".This is an immaculate copy with full colors on the boards and gilt. This book is a rare copy and looks as if it is new.

Critical Essays In Monetary Thinking

Critical Essays In Monetary Thinking

By Hicks, John R.

"The first three of this collection of 12 essays represent an extended and revised version of several lectures, essentially on the theory of the demand for money, which Sir John delivered at the London School of Economics in January 1966. Essay 6, on 'The Pure Theory of Portfolio Selection' may be regarded as a mathematical appendix to these essays. Essay 4 is a report of Sir John's 'Suggestion for Simplifying the Theory of Money' (1935) which (we now realize) laid the foundations of the modern approach to the demand for money. Essay 5 is his paper, presented to the Manchester Statistical Society in 1958 on the history of the yield on Consols since 1750. Essay 7 is a reprint of his famous review of the General Theory, which originally appeared, under the title 'Mr. Keynes and the Classics,' in Econometrica in 1937, while Essays 8, 9, 10, and 11 may be regarded as further developments of the same theme, which special reference to the positions occupied by Patinkin, Wicksell, Dennis Robertson, Keynes (at the time of his Treatise) ad the founders of monetary theory… Finally in Essay 12, 'The Hayek Story,' we have Sir John's ingenious attempt to make sense of Hayek's Prices and Production (1931)… The collection offers a rich variety of fare" (Tew, The Economic Journal). "Hicks will probably appear in the history of economics as the greatest British theorist of the century" (Niehans, 371). Hicks was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1972.

Addresses upon the American Road… 1948-1950

By Hoover, Herbert

First edition of a volume of nearly 50 post-WWII addresses and writings by Hoover on foreign and domestic policies, affirming his continuing "enthusiasm for efficiency in government and his passion for reduced costs," inscribed by him, "The good wishes of Herbert Hoover." This volume, one of a series documenting Hoover's economic, domestic and foreign policies, contains "48 speeches, articles, letters, memoranda and remarks… beginning with a policy statement and a memorandum with respect to the Hoover Commission, both dated October 20, 1947, and ending with a radio address on December 20, 1950." These writings offer clear evidence of how Hoover's "enthusiasm for efficiency in government and his passion for reduced costs made him a vigorous, exacting, and yet tactful leader… Of major importance are Hoover's views on various aspects of foreign policy… especially in his address at the dedication of the William Allan White Memorial [68-77], and in his broadcasts of October 19 [91-99] and December 20, 1950 [203-10]. These are notable contributions to the great debate over foreign policy… It is in these addresses that Hoover develops his theory of 'Gibraltarian' for the Western Hemisphere" (Berdahl, Western Political Quarterly V:1, 174-6).
