Jonathan Cape, London, 2005. Second Impression. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Fine Condition/Fine. black end-papers; Is the universe alive? Are there hidden connections within it, revealed in history and in sacred texts? Can we understand or even learn to control these secrets? Have we neglected an entirely separate science that works according to a different set of principles? Certainly by the time of the Renaissance in Europe, there were many thinkers who answered in the affirmative to all of these questions. Despite the growth of modern science and a general disenchantment of the world, the 'occult' or 'esoteric' tradition has evolved in the West, manifesting itself in such diverse groups as the Freemasons, the Mormons, Christian Scientists, the Theosophists, New Age, and American Fundamentalism. Paradoxically, the turn to science and the triumph of evolution in the nineteenth century produced an explosion of occultism, increasing its power as a kind of super-science. Gothic, fantastic, ...

Galton Foundation, Cambridge, 1985. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/Near Fine. Professor Parkes writes: With complete failure at school and no more than a second class pass degree as a start, how did I get by? What, I think, saved me was an inquiring mind, an urge to work and entrepreneurial zest, But I was an innovator rather than a consolidator, and once anything I was involved with got off the ground I tended to lose interest and become fertile soil for something else. I was incredibly lucky: World War I robbed me of an education but gave my father the chance to get me to Cambridge without one. I stumbled into reproductive biology in its early days and before this went stale on me, I was stirred up by World War II and the re-birth of the NIMR at Mill Hill. Then came the freezing saga and the olfactory block to conception. Add to these contact with the FPA, the IPPF, WHO, new Societies, new Journals, my move to Cambridge, the Nuffield Unit in Uganda and fin ... Read more

Old Scarlett

George Dixon

Annakinn Fine Arts Limited, Peterborough, Cambs, 1980. First Edition. Softcover (Saddle-stapled). As New/No Dust Jacket. introduction by Edward Storey; Many people know of Robert Scarlett - the Peterborough Sexton who had the distinction of burying two Queens in the same Cathedral - but, beyond that, little more about him is known by the thousands of visitors to the City.

The glamour (if one can use that word of a gravedigger) rested solely on his associations with the two Queens - Katharine of Aragon and Mary, Queen of Scots.

Gerald Duckworth & Co Ltd, London, 2000. First Edition. Black Cloth. Near Fine/Near Fine. gilt titles spine; "The earlier part of the commentary by 'Philoponus' on Aristotle's On the Soul is translated by William Charlton in another volume in this series. This second volume includes the latter part of the commentary along with a translation of Stephanus' commentary on Aristotle's On Interpretation. It thus enables readers to assess for themselves Charlton's view that the commentary once ascribed to Philoponus should in fact be ascribed to Stephanus. The two treatises of Aristotle here commented on are very different from each other. In On Interpretation Aristotle studies the logic of opposed pairs of statements. It is in this context that Aristotle discusses the nature of language and the implications for determinism of opposed predictions about a future occurrence, such as a sea-battle. And Stephanus, like his predecessor Ammonius, brings in other deterministic arguments ... Read more
