Barnes & Noble Books Inc, New York, 1993. First Thus. Hardcover (Half Cloth). Very Good Condition/As New. Oatmeal coloured paper-covered boards with purple cloth spine; In this entertaining and informative survey, C. J. S. Thompson traces the origins and history of astrology for more than five thousand years, from ancient Sumeria and Babylonia through Biblical times and on to the work of great scientists and magicians like Ptolemy, Kepler, John Dee, William Lilly, and Nostradamus. The astrology of the ancients was quite different from most of what passes today for astrology. The mystics and priests of ancient times visualized a grand system in which heavenly bodies, plants, metals, and the destinies of men were linked by signs and symbols which could be read by intuition. It was by such inner understanding that the old herbalists understood the medicinal virtues of plants, and connected them with shapes, colors, seasons, and astrological influences. It would be mistaken to assume that such botan ... Read more

Soil Association, Stowmarket, Suffolk, 1977. Second Edition. Card Covers. Very Good/N/A. illustrated by line-drawings, "this pamphlet is written to give practical help to those seeking a simple, self-sufficient life. It contains one man's experience on one particular organic smallholding where a certain measure of sufficiency is achieved. A family could survive on its own in complete isolation, but this would be a rather uncomfortable and insecure subsistence. Three or four neighbouring smallholders, working in harmony and pooling their individual skills, could live far better. Add a bit of modern technology and life becomes easier, with more leisuretime, less drudgery. The big question is "how self-sufficient does one aim to become?" Today one can choose one's level, seek the best of both worlds ... only a fool would deliberately make hardships for himself ... but this option clouds the issue, making it difficult to define one's ultimate, long-term aim. Tomorrow, however, we m ... Read more

  • Book condition: Near Fine Condition
  • Quantity available: 1
Peter Davies Lrd, London, 1976. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/Very Good. The way people relate to each other in terms of natal horoscopes is governed in the view of these distinguished authors by a complex interaction of planetary and stellar influences. The compatibility or otherwise of husbands and wives, lovers, parents and children, business associates and so on, may be precisely determined by the necessary tools provided in this book. Applying techniques originally developed for the use of professional astrologers, the authors enable the general reader to explore areas of personal relationships that have hitherto been beyond the reach of any but the most advanced practitioners. Eschewing a collection of generalities which are the inevitable result of using such elementary determinants as sun signs, this is a large systematic work employing the highest degree of scientific data available in modern astrological thinking. ‘The Astrology of Human Relationships’ ...

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1987. Reprint. Paperback. Very Good/N/A. white titles spine; illustrated throughout by b/w. diagrams & drawings; "the modern world relies heavily on widespread communications systems, most of which depend on the transmission of information by electrical means. The basic theory is that of electromagnetic waves, now just over 100 years old. The detailed application of the theory to practical systems has advanced steadily, in terms of both defining the potential of a system, and in providing a more complete understanding of its performance. This second edition of an established textbook presents those aspects of electromagnetic theory which are of direct relevance to the transmission of information by electromagnetic waves: in free space, by transmission line, wave guide, or optical fiber. In revising the first edition the authors have taken the opportunity to extend the coverage significantly by adding new material on optical transmission. The level is suitab ... Read more

Rider, London, 1986. First Edition. Red Cloth. Fine/Fine. silver titles spine, small b/w. zodiac illust. to each star-sign section plus explanatory diagram in part one, a Rising Sign is the astrological sign rising on the Eastern horizon at the moment of an individual's birth, and from this single astrological factor much more can be learned than from the sun sign alone. A book of Rising Signs such as this, therefore, is extremely useful; it provides a great deal of information and (as presented by Dr. Sargent) is practical. Indeed, readers will find it far easier than the preparation and interpretation of a full horoscope. Dr. Sargent has provided unique, easy-to-use tables for identifying your Rising Sign within a few moments - provided you know the date, place and approximate time of your birth. Once you know your Rising Sign you pass on to the section describing the typical strengths and weaknesses of those born under each of 12 Rising Signs - the basic essence of each Rising Sign, the relationsh ...

Felix Alcan, Paris, 1933. First Edition. Softcover. Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. le grand mérite de M. P.-M. Schuhl est d'avoir soumis à une étude la question des rapports entre Platon et l'art de son temps. Il nous montre de hardis novateurs s'engageant dans des voies puis des archaïsants s'efforçant de revenir à l'idéal de la grande époque. La position prise par Platon est nettement indiquée, avec textes à l'appui. Ceux-ci sont chaque fois traduits de façon mais sans lourdeur, replacés dans le contexte et commentés en des notes nombreuses où l'on retrouve, en grec, certains passages litigieux. Les rigueurs de Platon s'adressent surtout aux tendances modernes ; au surplus, il ne peut approuver que certaines formes d'art particulières. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 123 pages.
