No textbook has yet been written specially for radiographers about this part of their course, and the book is intended to fill a gap among the aids to those who must learn and the tools of those who must teach.

Mentor Books, New York, 1976. First Paperback Edition. Paperback. Near Fine/N/A. black titles spine; "The bloody slave rebellion led by Nat Turner in Virginia in 1831, and the savage reprisals that followed, shattered beyond repair the myth of the contented slave and the benign master, and intensified the forces of change that would plunge America into the bloodbath of the Civil War. Now a professional historian and biographer has assembled all available evidence to present a gripping and insightful account of the rebellion, the complex, gifted and driven man who led it, the social conditions that produced it, and the legacy it left. Here is the dramatic re-creation of that stormy period which marked a crucial turning point in America's history. A much needed correction to historical fantasies .... grounded in the facts and excellently documented, this volume is essential for students of slavery and of the history of violence in America."; previous owner's name on front endpaper; includ ...

Egon Publishers Ltd, Royston, Hertfordshire, 2004. First Edition. Softcover. As New/No Dust Jacket. Signed by Author. Damien O'Dell's first book about the paranormal brings together his various interests - his Bedfordshire roots, his fascination with the paranormal and his love of history. He travelled many hundreds of miles, from Odell to Arlesey, from Barton-le-Clay to Bolnhurst, and interviewed scores of witnesses in his search for the truth. His book is filled with a rich panoply of characters, both famous and infamous, from Sir Fulke de Breaute to Lord Thomson of Cardington. Well over a hundred people feature in ‘Ghostly Bedfordshire’ ... reinvestigated, but the most interesting stories come from 'ordinary' people, from a variety of backgrounds. Their sincerity, often corroborated, where possible by other witnesses, convinced the author that what we refer to as 'ghosts' are very real experiences. This was reinforced in the village of Wilden, when he came into spine- ... Read more

Element, Shaftesbury, Dorset, 1989. First Edition. Softcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. The image of a Prince of Darkness, terrifying opponent of gods and men, has existed in many different guises in the human mind through countless ages and among numerous races and nations. This fascinating work explores the historical origins and the development of ideas about this enigmatic being, from religion and mythology to philosophy and literature. Considering the nature of both superstition and evil, Joan O'Grady traces the development of the Devil's image - from the servant of God to the Arch-Enemy of mankind. Whether there is a Dark Enemy operating in our world, or whether it is merely the existence of some fundamental tendency of the human psyche which we call ‘the Prince of Darkness’, an idea of such universality has relevance for all and cannot be ignored ...

A & C Black, London, 1934. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/Very Good. In this book the history of the craft of workers in precious metals is briefly surveyed in its successive phases, especially the work of the silversmith in Anglo-Saxon times, in the Middle Ages, and from the Renaissance to the Restoration. The modern period is dealt with in more detail, beginning with the great demand for plate to replace that which was lost in the Civil War. Form and decoration are discussed, and the varieties of silver pieces made for the dinner-service, and the service of wine and beer, of tea, chocolate and coffee. Particular attention is given, in both text and illustrations, to several subjects hitherto neglected, notably the art of heraldic engraving on plate. Well over one hundred carefully selected pieces are illustrated, the majority being subsequent to 1660, of the period most accessible to the collector to-day. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 232 pages. Binding is tigh ... Read more

Oxford University Press, Oxford, 1957. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/Fair. This is the first book to be devoted entirely to the plate of the churches of England and Wales. Hitherto the subject has been treated summarily in the general works on English silver by Cripps, Jackson and Watts, or sectionally in books or periodicals dealing with the plate of individual counties or dioceses. Mr. Oman's book deals with the subject both from the artistic and from the historical points of view. Besides tracing the evolution of the various types of vessel, he studies the relations between the churches and the goldsmiths, estimates the amount of plate which an average church might be expected to possess at a given date, and details the process by which most of the treasures of the medieval churches were destroyed or refashioned in the sixteenth century. Mr. Oman does not only deal with the wealth of plate acquired by the Church of England during the seventeenth and eighteenth cent ... Read more

Sage Publications Ltd, London, 1992. First U.K. Edition. Paperback. Near Fine/N/A. blue titles spine; illustrated by b/w. drawings, charts & tables; "the chapters in this volume build firmly on the work on health, behavior, and aging that has been accumulating in the past decade, especially by the N.I.A. (National Institute on Aging) and they look ahead to potentially more fruitful avenues in the coming decade. Significant contributions have been made by the scientific staff of the Social and Behavioral Research program to these developments, past and future. All members of this staff have continually encouraged research in this area. And, in particular, the NIA has held the lead in the all-NIH Working Group on Health and Behavior, which provided major sponsorship for the IOM project of 1982 and has continued throughout the decade to coordinate relevant work in all the NIH institutes (and, on occasion, in all the agencies of the Public Health Service). Moreover, it was the NIA that took the init ... Read more

Archaeology has taught us much about the way of life, habits and homes of Bronze Age people, but as yet little has been written about warfare. What was Bronze Age warfare like? How did people fight and against whom? What weapons were used? Did they fortify their settlements, and, if so, were these intended as defensive or offensive structures? This, the first detailed study of warfare in Bronze Age Europe, aims to answer these and many other questions."; including index - 165 pages. A H ... Read more

St. Martin's Griffin, New York, 1999. Sixth Printing. Paperback. Fine/N/A. cover painting by the author; Osho, or Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh as he became known in the 1970's & 80's, was one of the best-known and most provocative spiritual teachers of the twentieth century. Beginning in the 1970s he captured the attention of young people from the West who wanted to experience meditation and transformation. More than a decade after his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world. As Osho points out in the foreword to this book, historically, the creative person has been all but forced to rebel against the society. But nowadays, the situation has dramatically changed. In today's world, the ability to respond creatively to new challenges is demanded of everybody, from corporate CEOs to "soccer moms." Those whose toolbox for dealing with life includes only what they have learned in the past fr ... Read more

Routledge, London, 1972. First Paperback Edition. Softcover. Fair Condition/No Dust Jacket. Appearing ten years after the death of its author, The Fourth Way is the most complete statement so far published of the ideas which P. D. Ouspensky taught. Consisting of verbatim records of his oral teaching from the year 1921 to 1946, it develops the ideas set forth in In Search of the Miraculous and gives a lucid explanation of the practical side of G. I. Gurdjieff's teaching. This shows a Way of inner development to be followed in ordinary life conditions, as distinct from the three traditional Ways that call for retirement from the world - those of the fakir, monk and yogi. Gurdjieff gave this teaching in the form of raw material which it was Ouspensky's specific task to put together into a systematic whole. When he came to London Ouspensky made it his work to transmit these ideas by means of lectures and talks. Ouspensky's first major book, Tertium Organum, dealt with a new way of thinking; ...

Trustees of King William's College, Douglas, Isle of Man, 1930. First Edition. Softcover (Side-stapled). Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. b/w. frontis. illustration of King William's College. This little book will fill a long felt want. It is a curious fact that, apart from the ordinary registers and statistics, no attempt has heretofore been made to record the circumstances attending the foundation and the progress of King William’s College. The fact is the more curious in view of the very prominent influence which the School has had, and still has, in the scheme of Education 1n the Isle of Man, and of its high standing in England. Canon Owen’s timely researches have brought to light, and show in proper perspective, the close relationship of the College to the progress of Education here, and make clear the very important place which the only Public School must occupy in the whole sphere of Insular development. The book, however, does more than this. While recalling in permanent form ... Read more
