904 Faulkes, Anthony edit. Snorri Sturluson. Edda Hattatal Part 3.
Clarendon Press 1991 0198112386 Hardcover. Previous owner's stamp on flyleaf else good Octavo 
169 pp English and Old Norse, Old Icleandic. Ha'ttatalis a treatise in Old Icelandic on the metres and verse-forms of Old Norse poetry. It forms the third part of the Edda of the Icelandic historian and poet Snorri Sturluson (1179-1241). This poem consists of 102 stanzas in various verse-forms in praise of the rulers of Norway after Sturluson had visited the Norwegian court in about 1222-3. This is the earliest medieval treatise on the metres of poetry in a Germanic language, and is of immense importance for our understanding of the metres not only of Norse poetry but also of those of Anglo-Saxon and Medieval German, and it also provides great insight into the ways in which a medieval vernacular poet perceived his work.

935 Flaherty, Robert. Comock. The True Story of an Eskimo Hunter as told to....
Godine 2003. 1567922651 Hardcover in DJ. Very Good Very Good Quarto 
127 pp "In 1912, the village of Cape Wolstenholme on Hudson Bay was the northernmost edge of the North American frontier.It was there during a hunting expedition that Robert Flaherty, an American-born prospector and a pioneer filmmaker, chanced to see the landing of an overcrowded, leaking, sealskin-and-whalebone vessel. This improvised contraption, kept afloat by inflated seal bladders, held an Inuit hunter named Comock, his wife, their eleven children, and two dogs. Ten years earlier, Comock and his family had crossed the Hudson Bay's ice floes in search of a fabled island rich in caribou, walruses, and seals. They found their "promised land" – Mansel Island, sixty miles west of Cape Wolstenholme – but lost their bearings and most of their belongings en route. Although they were the island's only human inhabitants, the family, thanks to Comock's skill as a hunter, not only survived but thrived in one of the world's harshest environments. A full decade later, they returned to tell their incredible tale. With all the skill of the great documentary filmmaker he would later become, Flaherty recorded Comock's story and retells it in the hunter's own voice. A classic of oral literature, a kind of real-life Eskimo folk tale of cunning, ingenuity, and daring, Comock was originally published to critical acclaim in 1968. This beautiful new large-format edition includes many Inuit drawings collected by Flaherty, several sections of previously omitted text, and a new epilogue by the noted anthropologist Edmund Carpenter. The book has also been enhanced by tri-tone reproductions of forty-six Flaherty photographs, images reminiscent of stills from his great silent film Nanook of the North. "

The colorplates are accompanied by individual commentaries sketching the lives of the artists and the significance of individual pieces.

961 Fox, edit., Robin Lane Tacitus : Annals, Histories, Agricola Germania.
Everyman Library 2009 0307267504 Hardcover in DJ Good Good Octavo 
850 pp "Tacitus served as administrator and senator, a career that gave him an intimate view of the empire at its highest levels, and of the dramatic, violent, and often bloody events of the first century. In the Annals, he writes about Augustus Caesar's death and observes the inner workings of the courts of the emperors Tiberius and Nero. In the Histories, he describes an empire in tumult, four emperors reigning in one year, each overthrown by the next. The Agricola, a biography of Tacitus's father-in-law, Julius Agricola the most celebrated governor of Roman Britainis the first detailed account of the island that would eventually rule over a quarter of the earth. And in the Germania, the famed warrior-barbarians of ancient Germany come richly to life."

962 Fox, Robert Camera in Conflict. The Hulton Getty Picture Collection. Armed Conflict, Bewaffnete Konflikte, Conflits Armes.
Koneman 1996 Hardcover in DJ. Good Good Quarto 
420 pp German, French and English. Vol 2 of Camera in Conflict. Stand-alone volume. " Camera In Conflict is the story of photography in war from the Crimea and the American Civil War to Chechenya and Bosnia today. Here is the work of action photographers at the peak of their art, producing images that were to be etched for ever on the collective memory - the victims of the Warsaw ghetto surrendering to the SS, the hundreds of sailors abandoning ship as the carrier USS Lexington goes down in the battle for the Coral Sea, the bewildered and bereaved in Sarajevo and Rwanda. In a series of arresting essays, Robert Fox describes the changing aspect of war across the world in the era of action photography, and outlines what we might expect in conflicts to come."

66 pp text, 24 black and white plates. "Highly popular at the time of its original publication, Fry’s monograph was instrumental in rescuing the artist Bellini from the oblivion of a Victorian-era reputation by reinterpreting and revaluing his art for an early twentieth-century audience. Giving a succinct but definitive view of Bellini’s career, Fry not only brought to bear the new "scientific" connoisseur ship in his analysis of individual pictures and their chronology, but he also brought a keen interest into Bellini’s innovative use of semi-transparent oil glazes, the psychological depth of his subjects, and Bellini’s profound sensitivity to nature."
