Description:
New York. 1972. Penguin Books. Reprinted Penguin Classic Paperback Edition. Very Good in Wrappers. 0140441506. Translated from the Latin by Kenneth Wellesley. 336 pages. paperback. The cover shows a detail from a frieze in the Villa of the Mysteries, Pompeii. FROM THE PUBLISHER - In the surviving book of THE HISTORIES, the great Roman historian, Tacitus, writing some thirty years after the events, reconstructs the anarchy of A.D. 69, ‘that long but single year’, during which the Emperors Galba, Otho and Vitellius briefly held power and the Emperor Vespasian established a new dynasty. Though occasionally partisan, or perhaps merely malicious, Tacitus is notable for the general accuracy with which he records a sudden, violent eruption which shook the whole edifice of the Roman Empire. His earlier works, the monographs AGRICOLA and GERAMNIA, and the later ANNALS OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE are also available in the Penguin Classics. inventory #29284 ISBN: 0140441506.

Description:
New York. 1965. Charles Frank. 1st American Edition. Very Good in Worn and Scuffed Dustjacket. A rare book in this edition. 120 pages. hardcover. FROM THE PUBLISHER - It’s a wise child - or a wise adult, for that matter - who has read and assimilated what this quietly wise book has to say. Which doesn’t mean that this charming book lectures - nothing could be further from the truth. It tells human, winning, enchanting stories, and if they happen also to illustrate some of that fabled ‘wisdom of the East’ - well, so much the better. MAKTUB is intended for children but adults should also enjoy its style and humor. The stories that make up this volume vary widely in locale - from Marrakech to Peking - and theme - from the imperfections of earthly beauty and the limitations of earthly knowledge to the worthiness of the earthly virtues like charity, honesty and generosity. Their characters range from the three exceptional men of Baghdad, all of whom are ready to give up a beautiful… Read more

Berkeley. 2010. April 2010. University of California Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good in Wrappers. 9780520262263. 216 pages. paperback. FROM THE PUBLISHER - This is the incredible story of Bao Luong, one of Vietnam's first woman freedom fighters, and the author's aunt. In 1920, when Bao Luong was just 18, she left her village home in South Vietnam to join the underground fight against French colonial rule. After traveling as a stowaway to Guannngzhou, China, where she trained in revolutionary work, Bao returned to Saigon only to get caught up in one of the most infamous political crimes of Vietnam's history -- the Barbier Street murder of 1927. The crime resulted in a sensational trial that captivated national attention and resulted in Bao's eight year imprisonment. Relying on family memoirs, press accounts, police interrogation records, and court transcripts, Hue-Tam Ho Tai pieces together a fascinating story of political intrigue and suspense. Many of the key figures in… Read more

New York. 1990. Viking Press. Unrevised & Unpublished Proofs. Very Good in Wrappers. 0670824623. Translated from the Spanish by William I. Neuman. 230 pages. paperback. FROM THE PUBLISHER - AN EASY THING marks the English-language debut of Paco lgnacio Taibo II, Mexico’s leading detective novelist and a writer world renowned for his atmospheric and highly innovative crime fiction. Set in the chaotic urban heart of Mexico City, a place where the ghosts of Old Mexico constantly eat away at all pretense of modernity, An Easy Thing is distinguished by the vulnerable human presence of its jaded detective hero, Hector Belascoarán Shayne. Already weary from coping with his mother’s death and his lover’s flight, Hector finds himself reluctantly involved in three perplexing cases: a murder at a capitalist- and corruption-riddled factory; disturbingly violent threats against the innocent teenage daughter of a former porn star; and finally, an attempt to find a rather extraordinary… Read more

Jacket design by Jose Ortega & Rachel McClain. Jacket illustration by Jose Ortega. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Jose Daniel Fierro is Mexico’s most celebrated author of police thrillers. He’s about to become something more. In the graffiti-festooned mining city of Santa Ana, three hundred years of oppression had led to a radical people’s government. The brutal ruling class waits for its chance to crash back in - while the town’s police chiefs keep getting killed. On the theory that Jose Daniel is too well-known to be murdered, the man of letters is invited by the city leaders to be the latest chief. On a whim, he accepts. Jose Daniel knows what Robert Mitchum would say when confronted by a beautiful amoral woman. He knows how Ross MacDonald might describe an encounter with a hit man. But when it comes to handguns,… Read more

New York. 1995. September 1995. Mysterious Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good in Dustjacket. 0892965894. Translated from the Spanish by Martin Michael Roberts. 453 pages. hardcover. Jacket design by Jackie Merri Meyer. Jacket illustration by Jose Ortega. FROM THE PUBLISHER - September 1995. In 1994 LEONARDO’S BICYCLE won the Latin American Dashiell Hammett Award for the best crime novel of the year - the third Hammett Award for the exceptional Paco Ignacio Taibo II. In this story, Taibo soars over the genre much as Leonardo himself floats above the violent plot - imbuing its twists and turns with the artist’s obsessions with painting, sculpture, war machines, submarines, and a two-wheeled conveyance that would not be invented for another four hundred years. In smog-shrouded, pastel-hued Mexico City, the famous writer of crime fiction, Jose Daniel Fierro, falls in love with the televised image of a young woman basketball player. During the mad, violent days of revolution in 1920s Spain,… Read more

Segawa had a good job as a stock market trader, but the 'private' hedge fund he operated suffered big losses and he was fired. He is down and out when he is approached with an offer of highly paid work. How can he resist? He agrees to become an industrial spy, even when he discovers the target is his old schoolmate-who married Segawa's girlfriend-and his company. Ogino, the old friend, is murdered, and Segawa seems to have been the last person to visit him. He panics, fakes an easily disproved alibi, then tries to flee. He would seem to be the obvious culprit. Who else could have done it? The widow? Segawa's other girlfriend? The dead man's uncle or some of the other ambitious directors of the company?

Boston. 1995. August 1995. Little Brown. 1st American Edition. Very Good in Dustjacket. 0316831220. 194 pages. hardcover. Jacket design by Steve Snider. FROM THE PUBLISHER - The bombing of Hiroshima was one of the pivotal events of the twentieth century, yet this controversial question remains unresolved. At the time, General Dwight Eisenhower, General Douglas MacArthur, and chief of staff Admiral William Leahy all agreed that an atomic attack on Japanese cities was unnecessary. All of them believed that Japan had already been beaten and that the war would soon end. Was the bomb dropped to end the war more quickly? Or did it herald the start of the Cold War? In his probing new study, prizewinning historian Ronald Takaki explores these factors and more. He considers the cultural context of race - the ways in which stereotypes of the Japanese influenced public opinion and policymakers - and also probes the human dimension. Relying on top secret military reports, diaries, and personal letters, Takaki… Read more

New York. 1999. April 1999. Scribner. 1st Edition. Very Good in Dustjacket. 068483359x. 400 pages. hardcover. Jacket design by Paul Smith. FROM THE PUBLISHER - In TARZAN FOREVER: THE LIFE OF EDGAR RICE BURROUGHS, CREATOR OF TARZAN, John Taliaferro vividly recounts the remarkable life and career of the originator of Tarzan. Drawn extensively from Burroughs’s own correspondence, memos, and manuscripts, Taliaferro’s richly detailed narrative reveals how Burroughs, a down-on-his-luck Chicago pencil-sharpener salesman, first wrote about his most famous character, how he grasped the appeal of this ‘feral god,’ and how he spent the rest of his life nurturing and protecting it. Important as Tarzan was to Burroughs, Taliaferro makes clear that Burroughs’s life was at least as colorful as the life of his jungle creation. Burroughs was a cavalryman in the Arizona Territory, a cowboy in Idaho, a speculator in Southern California real estate, a Hollywood producer, a witness to the bombing… Read more

Bowling Green. 1993. Bowling Green State U Popular Press. 1st Edition. Very Good in Wrappers. 0879726326. 166 pages. paperback. Cover design by Gary Dumm. FROM THE PUBLISHER - H.R.F. Keating: Post-Colonial Detection examines the entire oeuvre of the prolific and award-winning writer, but focuses on the novels set in India in which the bumbling but always human Inspector Ghote manages to solve crimes with a post-colonial mix of inherited Scotland Yard/Holmesian deductive methods and his understanding of his native country’s cultural contradictions. This book is based on the premise that successful sleuths have much in common with cultural anthropologists - indeed the latter have often been termed detectives of cultures. In this respect, Keating’s Ghote novels are in the tradition of Tony Hillerman’s Navajo Indian and James McClure’s South African novels which serve up the human, experiential aspects of the cultural and ethnic conflicts that newspaper reports scarcely touch on.
