Description:
Translated into English dactyllic-hexameter by Charles E. MacBean, esq. A big fan of MacBean, Lyle E. Daniel, at the time the English Department Chairman of Vachon H.S. in Vachon, Wash. states: "Readers will be happy to find his rendition of lines so natural, so honest, and so beautiful that MacBean easily establishes dactylic hexameter, once thought unrendable in English, as a valid and important English meter. Thus the Greek epic lives again with its music restored in powerful, rolling dactyls. It is a joy to have one of the oldest of the Achaian stories (Homer speaks of the Argonaut adventure as if it were universally known), harmonized from the various versions by Apollodoris about 265 B.C., brought to life again. In a sense the "Argonautica" is a prelude to the "Iliad". Here we meet the generation before the Trojan War, the fathers of Achilleus, of the two names Aias, of Patroklos, and others. It should be our first glimpse into the age of heroes and of the remarkable civilization that followed.… Read More

Description:
From the front d.j. flap: "When Helen Macdonald's father died suddenly on a London street, she was devastated. An experienced falconer--Helen had been captivated by hawks since childhood--she'd never before been tempted to train one of the most vicious predators, the goshawk. But in her grief, she saw that the goshawk's fierce and feral temperament mirrored her own. Resolving to purchase and raise the deadly creature as a means to cope with her loss, she adopted Mabel and turned to the guidance of "The Once and Future King" author T. H. white's chronicle 'The Godshawk' to begin her challenging endeavor. Projecting herself 'in the hawk's wild mind to tame her' tested the limits of Macdonald's humanity and changed her life."

Description:
Clean glossy pages throughout, with one to two photos per page demonstrating the proper approach and form for the various shots. An exceptionally clean, and seemingly rarely-used copy. The first 11 pages, with drawings, demonstrate exercises to get started. From "The Preface": "It is probably beyond argument that the golf stroke, apart from the putt, is the most highly technical method of hitting a ball in the whole realm of sport."
"It is the purpose of this book to inculcate those fundamentals in the easiest possible manner for those, who really desire to know the game, and, in addition, to show the full technique of the stroke, whereby those fundamentals may be welded into a homogeneous unit, that represents what the golfer so ardently desires--a good game."
INSCRIBED with best wishes by Bob MacDonald, Chicago, Ill, 2/25/27 on the back of the front endpaper.

Description:
From the d.j. flap: "Miss MacKinstry sets her own verses "to pictures" as another poet might set them to music. and with her two arts together she entraps in this small book a strange and lovely collection of beings. There are elves and nixies and leprecauns, and people from every walk of magic life, with Puck at one end of the scale and Merlin at the other. There are mere mortals too, parsons and knights and ladies, and three children black-berrying, and a fisher boy, and a 'gay and good old woman' who saw an Elfin fair."
The dust-jacket mirrors the colourful paper illustrated design of the book boards. The rear d.j. flap advertises 2 other books for children by Maurice Baring. A few pieces missing from the edges, but the d.j. has protected the book itself and kept it bright and clean. Uncommon thus.

Description:
From the Foreword: Al's determination to be the best flyer in the business kept him striving to that end. It took him through the rigors of mastering the Navy's Seafire over Britain, then through the rough and tumble of his own flying school. Adversity, tinged with good fortune, landed him in the jet age with Canadair and the RCAF Auxiliary, thence into aerial survey in the arctic and foreign lands. He went on to test airlines and their pilots, and retired after years as a forest fire bomber pilot in western Canada. It has been a career laced with exciting ventures, adventures, and some misadventures, over tundra, jungle, desert, mountain and ocean."
From the back cover: "Al MacNutt flew for 50 years on 67 different types of aircraft, from the Tiger Moth and Seafire of wartime to Mosquitoes and P38s converted for peacetime aerial surveys and A26s for forest fire bombing."

Description:
First published in 1981, reprinted in 1982 and 1983, but this 1985 edition is significantly revised and updated. Foreword by Rear Admiral H. F. Pullen: "Here is the book for which a great many naval veterans have been waiting. In it they will find the details and illustrations of well remembered ships that were their "homes' for many tempestuous months in a most unfriendly environment under comditions of considerable danger. There is a brief outline of each ship's service and enough information to conjure up a host of memories: of commissionings and workups; of convoys and struggles with the worst the North Atlantic could produce, gales of wind, mountainous seas, fog, snow and ice; and for some, encounters with the enemy. This is the definitive account of all those Canadian men-of-war that have served their sovereign and country both in peace and war for over 70 years."
Part One: 1910-1939; Part Two: 1939-1945; Part Three: 1945-1985. Appendices: 1. RN Ships under RCN Control; 2. North Atlantic… Read More

Carefully researched details in the watercolor paintings recreate the period in which the infamous first emperor of all China, Ch'in Shih Huang, lived and began building the Great Wall.
D.J. is flawed in that there are 2 vertical brown stripes, one on each side of the spine; they bleed through to the outer jacket illustration too, although not as obviously. The book itself is not affected.

The story of the highs and lows of Indian cricket, with all its oddities and eccentricities--how we reinvented a game and found ourselves reflected in it."
"All the brightest stars of Indian cricket can be found here, from Ronji and C.K. Nayudu to Vijay Merchant and Sunil Gavaskar, and from Kapil Dev and Sachin Tendulkar to Rahul Dravid and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Every major milestone along the journey is covered."

So, the picture of characters on the inside of the front board is the one which most owners have facing outward.
