World Wisdom Inc, Bloomington, Indiana, USA, 2002. First Edition. Paperback. Near Fine Condition/No Dust Jacket. orange end-papers; Kenryo Kanamatsu first wrote this inspirational and thought provoking piece on Shin Buddhism in 1949. This recently revised edition of 'Naturalness' has an introduction by the Reverend Tetsuo Unno. Shin, or Pure Land, Buddhism is the most popular form of Buddhism in Japan. It emphasizes the ritual recitation of the Nembutsu, the name of the Amitabha Buddha. Although it is less well known in the West than Zen Buddhism or Tibetan Buddhism, its message of holy freedom, or naturalness, which arises when we sincerely attach ourselves to Buddha Amida’s saving will, has been a way of spiritual awakening for multitudes of ordinary Japanese since the sixth century A.D., when Buddhism first came to Japan. Combining the learning of a philosopher with the sensitivity of a poet, Kanamatsu shows us how we may unite with the Buddha-Nature even in the ordinary activities of eve ... Read more

Jonathan Cape, London, 2005. Second Impression. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Fine Condition/Fine. black end-papers; Is the universe alive? Are there hidden connections within it, revealed in history and in sacred texts? Can we understand or even learn to control these secrets? Have we neglected an entirely separate science that works according to a different set of principles? Certainly by the time of the Renaissance in Europe, there were many thinkers who answered in the affirmative to all of these questions. Despite the growth of modern science and a general disenchantment of the world, the 'occult' or 'esoteric' tradition has evolved in the West, manifesting itself in such diverse groups as the Freemasons, the Mormons, Christian Scientists, the Theosophists, New Age, and American Fundamentalism. Paradoxically, the turn to science and the triumph of evolution in the nineteenth century produced an explosion of occultism, increasing its power as a kind of super-science. Gothic, fantastic, ...

Century, London, 1983. First Paperback Edition. Paperback. Very Good/N/A. Century Travellers Series; illustrated by b/w. maps & drawings; "As a challenge for explorers the mountain wilderness between India and Inner Asia was unique. The Western Himalayas were seen as a barrier guarding fabled cities unvisited since Marco Polo, barring the way for the commercial opening of Central Asia and Inland China. It took half a century to penetrate this barrier - evidence enough of the appalling difficulties involved. Then, as now, these were partly man-made, for the mountains were of overriding strategic and political importance: there was too much at stake for the sort of free-for-all that happened in Africa or Australia. The freelance traveller was discouraged or discredited; official travellers operated behind a dense screen of secrecy and unlikely excuses. Then there was the terrain - the most formidable on earth, powerful enough to undermine man's sense of self-importance. Yet these explorers ar ... Read more

In view of the overwhelming mass of authentic and well-attested evidence now available, as I thought of the sceptical criticism which from the eighteenth century onwards would fain have demolished the Bible altogether, there kept hammer ...

Citadel Press, New York, 1962. First Thus. Paperback. Near Fine/N/A. a Corinth paperback in the 'American Experience Series'; a complete & exact reissue of the original edition published in 1871 including all the original b/w. illustrations; "Travelling to Idaho with an emigrant train from her home in Kansas, the nineteen-year-old Mrs. Kelly was captured west of Fort Laramie by a band of Oglala Sioux on July 12, 1864, and held prisoner until December 12 of that year, when she was released at Fort Sully in the Dakota Territory. Her book is clearly one of the most distinguished examples of the last period of the captivity narrative. Fanny Kelly's narrative is valuable not only because it is an intrinsically exciting firsthand account, rich in details of Indian life, told by a brave and intelligent woman; it is especially valuable because it expresses the tension between two conflicting nineteenth-century images: the Indian as savage aggressor and the Indian as hapless victim&mdas ...

Oxford Univeristy Press, Oxford, 1987. Reprint. Black Cloth. Fine/Fine. gilt titles spine; "lhe papacy is the oldest of all Western institutions with an unbroken existence over almost 2,000 years. For much of its history, from the early struggles to establish the primacy of the See of Peter to the development of the modern papacy in the late nineteenth century, spiritual and temporal power have been inextricably mingled in the person of the pope. Writing for people of every religious allegiance and none, John Kelly gives here concise accounts not only of all the officially recognized popes from St Peter to John Paul 1I, but also of all their irregularly elected rivals, the socalled antipopes. He also records in an appendix the once generally credited, but long discarded, tradition that at some date in the ninth, tenth, or eleventh century there was a popess called Joan. The entries are arranged in chronological order so that each pope can be studied in his own historical context; this arrangement al ... Read more

Booklet no date but circa 1970's; Times (The Isle of Man Times) Monographs Series 1 No. 1. The staccato cough of racing engines that was the birth-cry six decades ago of the international-famous T.T. was also the roaring acceptance of a challenge... A challenge to men. And a challenge to machines. It was a challenge to make two wheels go faster; a challenge to human skill and ingenuity to make machines safer and more reliable. It was not an easy task, considering the difficulties and obstacles that faced those pioneers of yesterday in their long leather coats and rubber ponchos. But they did it. They accepted the challenge. And over the years, one by one, the man-made barriers dissolved before them. Now, all these years later, we salute those who made it all possible, and all the many people since who in countless ways nurtured the T.T., cared for it, 'and helpe ... Read more

Romantic Image

Frank Kermode

  • Edition: Second Impression
  • Book condition: Good Condition
  • Quantity available: 1
Routledge and Kegan Paul, London, 1961. Second Impression. Softcover. Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. b/w. frontis. illust. by Thomas Heine; Kermode's extremely important book of speculative and scholarly criticism, sets out to re-define the notion of the Romantic tradition, especially in its relation to English poetry and criticism. The organic image of the flower becomes, in ‘Among School Children’, the image of the Tree of life, the tree Adam ought to have robbed instead of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Kermode traces the development of such images in Yeats's work, and sources for them, with fascinating scholarship. His chapters on Yeats are among the best pages that have ever been devoted to that great poet. They set him in a context, they make many opacities apprehensible. A rich, packed, suggestive book which turns on the material of 'romantic' poetry the same sort of searchlight that has been unremittingly focused for so long on the Elizabethans and the Metap ...
