    Prey: A Novel by Crichton, Michael

    Canada: HarperCollins, 2002 Original dustjacket. Age and shelf wear to d/j - edges worn, corners bumped. Clean text pages, no internal markings. Tight copy. First Edition. Canadian Edition. "Like Jurassic Park, the novel serves as a cautionary tale about developments in science and technology; in this case, nanotechnology, genetic engineering and artificial intelligence. The book features relatively new advances in the computing/scientific community, such as artificial life, emergence (and by extension, complexity), genetic algorithms, and agent-based computing. The novel is narrated by the protagonist Jack Forman, who is an unemployed software programmer who used to work for a company called Media Tronics when he was fired for discovering an internal scandal."

    THE HOTTENTOT ROOM by Hope, Christopher

Original dustjacket not price clipped - jacket has slight browning around top edge. Jacket design: Claudia Zeff; illustration by Michael Munday. The top edge has some brown spotting. Clean text pages no internal markings. In this novel the sense of alienation and uncertainty which lies beneath and beyond politics and the struggle for power is compellingly evoked. By exploring the themes of love, loyalty and betrayal, and of tradition versus modernity, Christopher Hope creates a world where illusion and game-playing are not merely a refuge, but the means for self-preservation.

    The Adventurer. Volumes One - Three. by John Hawkesworth

    London - Silvester Doig, 1793 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A late eighteenth century edition of Hawkesworth's The Adventurer in full calf bindings that need a little care and attention. Bound in full calf with gilt lettering. Three Volumes of Four. In 1749 Hawkesworth joined Johnson's literary group the Ivy Lane Club, where he was valued as an instructive and entertaining companion on account of his eclectic knowledge and good share of wit (Hawkins, 252). Encouraged by fellow members, he became editor and principal writer for a new journal, The Adventurer (7 November 17529 March 1754), successor to Johnson's Rambler. As he explained retrospectively, his aim was to provide moral guidance for the young, but by indirect means. . . Of about seventy papers written by Hawkesworth himself, the majority were in narrative form: stories of middle-class English life, or oriental tales, a genre in which he was particularly adept; his formula, blending moral sentiment with exotic trappings, magic, and melodrama, proved a popular one -ODNB. Condition: The textblock bindings are tight and firm. The boards are cracked or held by the cords only, and could possibly detach in the post even after careful packing. The rear board of volume two is missing. There is wear to the extremities, including rubbing with edge wear and slight loss to the spine leather. The spine labels are missing. Internally the pages are bright with the occasional foxing prominent to the first and last few pages. Overall the condition is good only with a very good interior..

    Nouvel Atlas Portatit De La Geographie Ancienne (Atlas | Map | North America | South America | De Vaugondy Atlas) by de Vaugondy

    Paris: A Paris chez l'Auteur Rue du Foin St. Jacques, 1790. Size: 11.25 in. x 9.5 in. Contemporary half calf professionally rebacked.. Marbled boards. Very light foxing to pages. 52 maps hand colored in outline. Includes two hemisphere maps with North America quite distorted at the North & West. Corners heavily worn. Overall in GOOD condition. Photos available upon request. Gilles Robert de Vaugondy (1688–1766), also known as Le Sieur or Monsieur Robert, and his son, Didier Robert de Vaugondy (c.95–1786), were leading mapmakers in France during the 1700s. In 1757, they published The Atlas Universel, one of the most important atlases of the 18th century. To produce the atlas, the Vaugondys integrated older sources with more modern surveyed maps. They verified and corrected the latitude and longitude of many regional maps in the atlas with astronomical observations. The older material was revised with the addition of many new place names. In 1760, Didier Robert de Vaugondy was appointed geographer to Louis XV. Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy produced their maps and terrestrial globes working together as father and son. Globes of a variety of sizes were made by gluing copperplate-printed gores on a plaster-finished papier-mache core, a complicated and expensive manufacturing process, employing several specialists. In some cases it is uncertain whether Gilles or Didier made a given map. Gilles often signed maps as "M.Robert", while Didier commonly signed his maps as "Robert de Vaugondy", or added "fils" or "filio" after his name. The Robert de Vaugondys were descended from the Nicolas Sanson family through Sanson's grandson, Pierre Moulard-Sanson; from him they inherited much of Sanson's cartographic material which they combined with maps and plates acquired after Hubert Jaillot's death in 1712 to form the basis the Atlas Universel. Sources from the Dépôt de la Marine, the official French repository for maritime-related information, were used for their maps of Canada and South America. Like Ortelius and Mercator, the Vaugondy's credited their sources, which has greatly benefited the study of the history of cartography during that period.. New Edition. Quarter Calf Leather. Good. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Hardcover.
