But it seems likely that no other book in the future will catch so well as this one does the personalities of the three British traitors and, equally important, the flavor of that sad, aimless, upper-class group from which they came, so unrepresentative of their country's best and so damningly damaging to its interests..

We also learn of Einstein's views on religion and philosophy, his marital problems, and his contacts with personalities ranging from John D Rockefeller to Charlie Chaplin to Freud to Ghandi. Interviews with Einstein, as well as reports on brief comments and longer addresses by him, help to convey his vivid style of expression as well as his great talent at formulation. 8vo (about 9.5 inches tall) ...

Self Published, 1973. Hardbound . BINDING/CONDITION: black boards; four tape stains on the front endpaper, otherwise a Very Good book, with a Good+ dust jacket. Six black and white photo illustrations. From the author's introduction: ''I am convinced that my obsession with angling was not acquired. I was born with it. I can still remember the frustrations and difficulties I endured through the rod-duffer stage and the hit and miss experiences while learning without direction. And so it is with the prospective notice in mind that I have written this book. I have not intended it to be a manual on fly casting or fly tying although I have touched on both. Another reason I had for compiling this information is the fact there has been too little written for the sportsman on the eastern brook trout, especially in Nova Scotia.''

The Donna, born in Madrid, granddaughter of a Spanish count, was a graduate of Boston University. In 1881 she established a school of elocution in pioneer Denver, sponsored by justices of the Supreme Court, bankers and a former governor and soon married the wealthy Daniels, who promised to build her a mansion surpassing that of the silver king, Tabor, but ...
