805 Eliot, George The Mill on the Floss.
Heritage Press 1963 Hardcover in slipcase. Good Good Octavo 
472 pp. Illus by Wray Manning. "Based on George Eliot's own growing-up years, this 1860 novel is her most overtly autobiographical work. Even the precisely described scenery reflects the area in Warwickshire where she was raised. THE MILL ON THE FLOSS is the story of affectionate, willful Maggie Tulliver, who is hungry for knowledge and experience, and her more conventional and intolerant brother, Tom--a relationship that mirrors that of George Eliot herself and her beloved brother, Isaac. When Maggie's virtue is compromised on an excursion with her cousin's fiancé, her brother repudiates her, and the two become estranged. The book's rather lurid ending--which involves a devastating flood--is controversial: it has even been considered by some critics to have incestuous overtones. But there is no denying that the ending is thematically appropriate, functioning not only as a dramatic climax to the events but as a metaphor for the passion that is the driving force in the story. THE MILL ON THE FLOSS, one of George Eliot's most enduring novels, is a particularly satisfying example of her domestic realism and her intense sensitivity to the rhythms of rural life."

871 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. "

177 pp 87 tipped in plates." A great storehouse of the finest Chinese art -- the Imperial Palace Museum collections in Peking -- has been unavailable to Western eyes for many years. Now, in this volume, two major areas of Chinese art -- its refined and spiritual painting and its exquisite ceramics -- are presented in a panoramic sweep extending from the third century B.C. to the masters who lived on into our own times. The colorplates are accompanied by individual commentaries sketching the lives of the artists and the significance of individual pieces. The author provides many fascinating biographical details and translates graceful poems and inscriptions that are usually lost to the Western reader. This volume provides an excellent introduction to Chinese art for the layman as well as a superb collection of new material for the scholar."

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."

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."
