154 pp

The forty years which immediately preceded the breaking out of the Rebellion of 1641 were the most peaceful and prosperous which Ireland had seen for centuries. The industrial progress of the island during this period was remarkable. For the first time in her history Ireland paid her way. But the strings of the Irish harp were not to be played for long. The growing prosperity of Ireland and the wealth of the Irish people was shattered in a moment. The rebellion broke out on the 22nd of October 1641, and the rest is history.

Contents of this scarce nineteenth century volume detail The Irish Parliament Of James II, Ireland From 1641 To The Accession Of James II, The Preparation For The Parliament, The Parliament Of 1689, The Alleged Violation Of The Treaty Of Limerick, The Second Siege And Treaty Of Limerick, The Charge Of Intolerance Against The Irish Protestant Parliament, Two Columns Of Names From The List Of Persons Attainted By The Irish Parliament, Treaty Of Limerick As Ratified By Their Majesties, Letters Patent Under The Great Seal Of England.

1243 James, Henry The Ambassadors.
Heritage Press 1963 Hardcover in slipcase. Good Good Octavo 
384 pp Illus by Leslie Saalburg."Lambert Strether is dispatched to Paris by the widowed Mrs. Newsome--his fiancée--to bring back her son Chadwick. It is rumored that Chad has fallen under the spell of a Frenchwoman of dubious reputation, and his mother wants him to return to take over the running of the Newsome Mills, in Massachusetts. Once in Paris, Strether undergoes a personality change. Not only does he advise Chad to remain there with his lover--the charming Mme. de Vionnet--but he comes perilously close to succumbing to the city's magic himself. The ending is both unexpected and deeply ironic; Strether's situation illustrates James's lifelong preoccupation with the differences in culture, morality, and the concept of the good life in a city like Paris vs. a New England mill town. It is, of course, no secret where the author's sympathies lie. As the aging Strether expresses it in a word of advice to a younger character: "Live all you can....Don't miss things out of stupidity. Live!" James considered this novel to be his masterpiece, and--despite its extreme length, slowness, and quiet absence of action or real suspense--critical opinion generally agrees with him."

Wroclaw 1995 Hardcover Good Octavo 
156 pp

The author discusses in this work the regional diversity of peasants` clothes in Poland and attempts to explain its causes. She thinks that differentiation was cansed by various historical, social, economical, andecological conditions of life of the inhabitants of particular regions. Often the cause was the early development of textile industry in the region or the introduction of market economy in the village. Colourful, richly decorated clothes based on factory made fabric appeared then, whereas in the regions distant from cities and industrial centres, self-made, plain, archaically designed clothes prevailed.

The pettern scheme of changes in Polish folk clothes as follows:

A -the XV - XIX centuries - the changes occur underexternal influences, while the peasants clothes, although they become closer to the wear of other social strata and foreign ethnic groups, retain their separateness.

B - the second half of the XIX - beginning of the XX century - the changes occur in the village community garment under the influence of mass introduction of factory made materials, which in case of ceremonial or festive wear serve only to enrich its forms with retaining its specifics. The situation is different in case of traditional everday clothes - they gradually disappear replaced by clothes in towns

C- the XX century - factory made fabric dominates. Traditional clothes remain only as ceremonial or festive wear. Although they become more and more a sign of a group`s identity, they are supposed to cause external effects rathes than internal ones (influencing the group itself). They are not subject to changes in their principal forms however the embelishment and variety of colours continually develop. They become more and more theatrical to be shown at the scene by the members of folk teams. In many regions they are only reconstruction, scene costumes, in many others they were completely forgotten. Particular regional and ethnographic clothes are presented in detali in the work as well.
