Description:
--. Extracted from Celebrities of the Army, edited by Commander C.N. Robinson, R.N., and published in fortnightly sixpenny parts, in London, by George Newnes, circa 1900. 'At a time when all eyes are turned to the operations of our troops in South Africa, those who are responsible for the organisation of our forces at home, and their conduct in the field, are much in the public mind. This series of CELEBRITIES OF THE ARMY will present its chiefs and leaders in a very vivid manner. ... the public craves to know more of the men whom it trusts, and to whom it looks to accomplish its will. They will be shown in this series, in a manner that is at once striking and altogether new, by admirable portraits in colours and life-like presentments of character in the text.' The page measures 37 x 27.5 cms, and the image area (not including the caption), measures about 25 x 19 cms. A brief career and character sketch of the subject appears on the reverse of the portrait. One leaf only, folio. .

(Cairo and New York: The American University in Cairo Press, 2002) 9774243935. 8vo; original black boards, lettered in gilt on spine; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. xi + (i) + 235; profusely illustrated in colour and monochrome. Dustwrapper somewhat rubbed and edgeworn. Very good condition. "Corroded pieces of metal, stamped lumps of copper, broken bits of glass with partial inscriptions, fragments of textiles, tiny beads-these were the raw material found at al-Fustat, the site of the first Muslim settlement in Egypt in the seventh century and the heart of Cairo for many centuries following. From the 1950s Dr. Henri Amin Awad accepted from the poor in this area objects that had no obvious market value in return for medical services rendered. Over the years he built up an extraordinary and important collection of artifacts. Carefully cleaned, sorted, and then analysed by specialists, this material illuminates many areas of the archaeological record neglected or missing from other studies." .

In September 1985, it was a ball of paper and sticky tape, the result of six days of intense scientific discussion and one moment of inspiration. Five years later it was finally real: a perfectly symmetrical soccer-ball shaped molecule composed of 60 carbon atoms and called buckminsterfullerene. ... Carbon will never be the same again.' .

When doing field work on the various islands, two species of endemic gulls were noted commonly, and there were many opportunities to observe and photograph them. The nesting of the Swallow-tailed Gull (Creagrus furcatus) has been reported upon by Gifford (1913), R. C. Murphy (1936) and others, but the nest and eggs of the Galapagos Dusky Gull (Larus fuliginosus) were unknown at the time of the Denver Museum expedition, although naturalists since the time of Darwin have speculated… Read more

The characteristics of flax fibres have made linens among the most useful textiles throughout history but the same characteristics have made linen lose popularity in the modern age of man-made fibres and easy-care fabrics. This book gives an account of the processes and tools involved in the production of linen from flax. The traditional methods, when the work was done by hand, are described, as well as some of the improvements and machines that have been developed." .

The flag of the garrison at Fort Frederick is visible at the crest of the hill overlooking the scene. In the foreground, lighters laden with Settler men, women and children are battling through the waves from… Read more
