The Dark Sister

Winfield Townley Scott

  • Edition: First Edition
  • Book condition: Very Good Condition
  • Quantity available: 1
New York University Press, New York, 1958. First Edition. Hardcover (Printed Boards). Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. In his 'note to the reader' the poet states that the bare bones of his narrative are all in the ancient Greenland and Iceland sagas of the Viking voyages to Vinland. He has indulged in transposition of material and of course in a great deal of interpretative drama; but Freydis' principal acts are quite as they are said to have occurred nearly one thousand years ago. This long narrative poem is based on the Nordic legend of Freydis, half-sister of Leif Ericson, a dark woman of doom and disaster who led a group of Norsemen to Vinland - the country which her father Eric had discovered. The expedition ends in rape, internecine murder, and bloody raids by the Indians - and when Freydis returns to her native home - her final fate seems to be madness. The verse is very passable and is strongly reminiscent of the forms used by Robinson Jeffers; if it is colder, harder, firmer, it ... Read more

Bath printed by Wood & Cunningham; & sold by Williams, London, 1813. First Edition. Hardcover (Quarter Leather). Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. b/w. frontis. engraving showing the Internment of Henry Mowbray with a view of Rock Deception & a prospect of Henry's Bay; the story in verse of David Dreadnought, the reformed English sailor, which owes its existence to a pulpit anecdote related in Bath around 1785 by the Rev. Thomas Tuppen concerning the conversion of a very profligate Sailor. This anecdote, and the impressive manner in which it was related, struck the Author's mind very forcibly, who had himself just quitted the sea service, and who then composed some lines on the subject, which formed the first part of 'Nautic Tales and Adventures in Verse' which is followed by some further account of David Dreadnought, with also the interesting narratives of John Marrant, the negro convert, and Donald Henderson, the Caledonian mariner. Whilst primarily religious in intent th ... Read more

The Day Lincoln Was Shot

Bishop, James Alonzo

  • Edition: First Paperback Edition
  • Book condition: Very Good
  • Quantity available: 1
Perennial Library/Harper & Row, New York, 1964. First Paperback Edition. Paperback. Very Good/N/A. black titles spine; "At seven o'clock on the morning of April 14, 1865, President Lincoln came out of his bedroom, nodded to the night guard, and started down the hall to his office. At 7:22 a.m. the following morning Surgeon General Barnes pressed silver coins to his eyelids as Mrs. Lincoln moaned. The president's day was, as usual, crammed with meetings and appointments, but he was probably no busier than the man who would stand behind him at Ford's Theatre that evening. For though the plan had been a long time brewing, the time and place were not set until eleven that morning. Minute-by-minute 'The Day Lincoln Was Shot' chronicles the movements of these two men until the almost unbearable suspense snaps with a single gunshot and a leap to the stage. From a thousand bits and scraps of information Jim Bishop has fashioned an unforgettable tale of tragedy more gripping than fict ... Read more

David & Charles, Newton Abbot, Devon, 1992. Revised & Enlarged. Maroon Cloth. Near Fine/Near Fine. Illustrator: Paley, John & Murphy, Philip. "Desolate, remote, yet full of the echoes of history, the East Anglian fens are a perfect habitat for today's wildfowler, wanderer and fisherman. They have a strange and wild history, for savage Vikings, monks, Romans, adventurers, dour Dutch drainers and a creeping race of mongrel Britons have all, in their time, navigated the slow, meandering rivers. Later, the Fenman was to wrest a precarious living from eels, fish, wildfowl, reed and peat cutting; from duck decoys, coprolite mines and herding bullocks, keeping at bay as best he might the ague and clouds of poisonous mosquitoes. The underlying theme was water, the ever present risk of floods, dykes, drains, washes, learns and cuts of his half-tamed waterland. The Fenman and his hostile terrain with its strange birds and beasts are inextricably linked. This is the story of the gunners an ... Read more

In 1991 the mosque at Ayodhya in India was demolished by Hindu fundamentalists who claim that it stood on the birthplace of a legendary Hindu hero. During recent conflicts in former Yugoslavia, ethnic groups destroyed mosques and churches to eliminate evidence of long-term settlement by other communities. Over successive centuries, however, a single building in Cordoba functioned as a mosque and a church. The Roman Emperor Diocletian's Palace in Split is occupied today by shops and residential apartments. What circumstances have led to the survival and reinterpretation of some monuments, but the destruction of others? The contributors to this timely volume document the threat to archaeological and architectural monuments from ethnic strife, war and commer ... Read more
