Julian Press, Inc, New York, 1961. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/Very Good Condition. Light brown end-papers. Introduction by Hyman Kublin. Werner's compendium of Chinese mythology, inimitably described by the author himself as a "Who's Who of the Chinese Otherworld," has been a choice collector's item for many years. It was originally published in 1932 with the illustrious imprint of Kelly and Walsh of Shanghai. But like many another notable work in the field of Chinese studies brought out by this famous publishing house, Werner's volume has long been unavailable to numerous would-be readers and purchasers. This stupendous work required nearly a half century to compile, traces the major myths, superstitions, and beliefs that are found in Eastern literature, art, and customs. Explains how the God of Happiness had his origin in an emperor's liking for dwarfs ... why Chinese children wear a cord around their necks ... what incense means in the ... Read more

Mindplayers

Cadigan, Pat

Gollancz (Orion Publishing Co.), London, 2000. First Thus. Paperback. Fine/N/A. black titles spine; one of the Gollancz SF Collectors' Editions series; "Allie Haas only did it for a dare - the kind of dare that you know is a mistake but you do it anyway because it's Mistake time. But putting on the madcap that Jerry Wirerammer had 'borrowed' was a very big mistake. The psychosis itself was quite conventional, a few paranoid delusions, but it didn't go away when she took the madcap off. Jerry did the decent thing and left her at an emergency room for dry-cleaning but then, of course, the Brain Police took over. Straightened out by a professional mindplayer, Allie thinks she's left mind games behind for good but then comes the fazer. She can either go to jail as a mind criminal, for being crazy without a licence, or she can train as a mindplayer herself. Pat Cadigan's intelligent and compelling foray into a near-future where you can score a little paranoia from the local n ... Read more

Illustrator: Photo's. black titles spine; a title in the "Cassell's Styles in Art" series; b/w. map of carpet-weaving countries; "While in the West carpets have been looked upon merely as floor coverings, in the East they have often been the principal item of domestic furniture, serving as beds, cushions, sofas, wall and door hangings. Many also have important religious functions. History, faith and culture are expressed in the innumerable variations of pattern and design. At the one extreme there is the simplicity which characterises the carpets of the nomadic Turkomans, at the other there is the inspired inventiveness of the priceless Ardebil carpet from Persia which once covered the tomb of a venerated ruler. In spite of centuries of poverty, tyranny and war, generations of weavers have pursued their craft with infinite skill and imagination. As well as giving their historical background, Michele Campana describes ... Read more

John Bartholomew & Son Ltd, Edinburgh, 1973. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/Near Fine. It is not only succulent enthusiasts who are taking up the cultivation of these colourful plants. Certain species with showy flowers have long been offered by the trade as houseplants. Many of the new hybrids have such brilliantly coloured rosettes that they are in considerable demand for house decoration. Species are very numerous and new ones are being continually introduced. The same applies to hybrids. Unfortunately many are being grown under wrong names. The authors have carefully gone into these matters and have endeavoured to include all those varieties introduced into this country up to 1971. The book is non-botanical and should serve as a useful introduction for all those interested in the cultivation of these lovely plants. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 110 pages. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. Dust Jacket is in as new condition, apart from norm ... Read more
