Magic and Superstition

Douglas Hill

  • Edition: First Edition
  • Book condition: Very Good Condition
  • Quantity available: 1
Hamlyn, London, 1968. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/Very Good. illustrated end-papers; Even people who say they are not superstitious will 'touch 'Wood', cross their fingers or avoid walking under ladders. In all the crises of life,whether in birth or death, war or peace, work or love, superstitions offer an uncanny support for which most of us are only too grateful. They even survive in the games we play, and many who remember 'ducking apples' at Hallow'een or avoiding cracks in the pavement, will be fascinated to learn what they were actually doing. Douglas Hill, a well-known writer in this field, traces the natural history of man's beliefs, and shows how magic and superstition once exercised a strong power over every stage of our lives, when almost every natural phenomenon had some influence over future events, and great care had to be taken to keep on the right side of the Powers behind birds, cats, storms or stones. In our science-worshipp ... Read more

Magnet of Doom

Georges Simenon

  • Book condition: Fair Condition
  • Quantity available: 1
Routledge, London, 1948. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Fair Condition/No Dust Jacket. Translated from the French by Geoffrey Sainsbury; In the 1890s the Congo Basin was opened up to the European. Its wealth in rubber, oils and ebony was exploited by those who were strong enough to rough it in the tropical jungle. The brothers Ferchaux were among the pioneers. In thirty or forty years they amassed a fortune, but their methods were often those of the jungle. Nemesis came upon them in the shape of a second-class Colonial official, who, to bolster up his own importance, dug up damning incidents from their past and exposed them to the law. Dieudonne Ferchaux begins by fighting back and engages a young down-and-out as his secretary. The story then revolves around these two characters: the ageing giant of commerce, now a hunted man, and the ambitious secretary, who, envying the riches and power of his master, means to step into his shoes. This is the first UK edition. Size: 12mo - over 6¾&q ... Read more

Her novel titled ‘A Few Figs from Thistles’ raised a few eyebrows as it preached about female sexuality and feminism. The general theme of her work was based on individualism and contemplation of oneself through spirituality in the face of oppression due to gender bias. It glorified women rights and feministic approach which inspired many women to view matters of life in a different manner. Her work intended to spark a revolution for changing the mindset o ...

Ross Institute of Tropical Hygiene, London, 1948. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/No Dust Jacket. Foreword, Preface & detailed Contents list to the front. The importance of Dr. Gilroy's work in the neighbourhood of Lagos is fully accredited by the success it has achieved, and its value emphasized by the words of Sir Hubert Walker, Director of Public Works at the time: "It may therefore truly be said that the value of the work to the war effort, the general health of Lagos and as a guide to similar work in future is incalculable."

Foulsham & Co. Ltd, London, 1962. First Thus. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/Very Good Condition. present The exposition of the predictive art will find more favour with students of Astrology than with the lay reader, though, in the choice of a guide to the celestial science, the present Manual may recommend itself to the lay reader, as containing the fullest possible information under the several heads of our subject, and being, at the same time, devoid of those abstruse calculations and technicalities which have beclouded some of the most learned and brilliant expositions. The treatment of that portion of our subject which deals with prenatal influences, the intra-uterine period, and the law of sex, has the merit of originality and truth. The section dealing with Hindu Astrology, after Parashara, is properly dissociated from the body of the Manual by the difference of zodiacal measurement observed in the East, as well as by the interpretation of planetary influence in relation to t ...
