New York. 1983. December 1983. Viking Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good in Dustjacket. 067052087x. 402 pages. hardcover. Jacket design by Anthony Russo. Signed by the Author. FROM THE PUBLISHER - William Kennedy’s celebrated cycle of novels has put Albany on the literary map. In this marvelous book, Kennedy offers an eloquent history of his colorful and turbulent hometown. O ALBANY! is part journalism, part memoir, all infused with love and lyricism. We visit the city’s ethnic and social neighborhoods. We meet the uncommon characters who tread on Kennedy’s stage - Erastus Corning, America’s longest-running mayor (forty-three years in office); the Prohibition celebrity gangster Jack ‘Legs’ Diamond; the back matriarch Olivia Rorie, who transformed Albany’s slums; Nelson Rockefeller and the ‘greatest marble project in the history of the world’; the political boss Dan O’Connell, who took City Hall in 1921 and never let go, even after he died.… Read more

Oberammergau. 1984. H. Weixler, GmbH. Souvenir Paperback Edition. Very Good in Wrappers. 118 pages. paperback. FROM THE PUBLISHER - The complete text in English. For Oberammergau 1984 is a jubilee year. 350 years have passed since the inhabitants of the parish made the vow, before Christ on the Cross, to perform the play of His suffering and death. In the confusion of the Thirty Year War more and more people were flying of the plague. In this time of great distress the ‘Six’ and the ‘Twelve’ vowed, on behalf of the whole parish, ‘henceforward to give the tragedy of the Passion every ten years’. The Chronicle reports that from that time no-one died of the plague. Whether the feared disease suddenly ended cannot be proved; in any case the epidemic was checked. One year later, in 1634, the promise was fulfilled for the first time and since then it has been kept faithfully for three and a half centuries. inventory #37714

New York. 2000. Pantheon Books. 1st American Edition. Very Good in Dustjacket. 0375409262. 238 pages. hardcover. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Nearly every decade since 1634, in fulfillment of a legendary seventeenth-century vow, citizens of the Bavarian village of Oberammergau have reenacted the trial, crucifixion, and resurrection of Christ. Oberammergau's Passion play has been widely praised for what the Victorian writer Richard Burton called its miraculous ability to provide pleasure to skeptic and believer alike. But there is a darker side. Hitler attended the 1930 and 1934 productions and admired them for their convincing portrayals of the menace of Jewry, and in 1970 a group of international luminaries that included Arthur Miller, Leonard Bernstein, and Gunter Grass supported a boycott of the play because of its anti-Semitism. As the production for the year 2000 drew near, James Shapiro was there to document the newest wave of obstacles facing the Bavarian villagers determined to stage another… Read more

Berkeley. 2003. University of California Press. 1st Printing of The 2nd Paperback Edition. Very Good in Wrappers. 0520240782. Translated from the German by John T. Goldthwait. 124 pages. paperback. FROM THE PUBLISHER - When originally published in 1960, this was the first complete English translation since 1799 of Kant’s early work on aesthetics. More literary than philosophical, Observations shows Kant as a man of feeling rather than the dry thinker he often seemed to readers of the three Critiques. Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) published his Critique of Pure Reason in 1781, the Critique of Practical Reason in 1788, and the Critique of Judgment in 1790. John T. Goldthwait was Professor of Philosophy at the State University of New York, Plattsburgh, and the author of Values: What They Are and How We Know Them (1996). inventory #36174 ISBN: 0520240782.

New York. 1965. April 1965. Pantheon Books. 1st American Edition. Very Good in Worn Dustjacket. Translated from the German by Ursule Molinaro. 183 pages. hardcover. Jacket design by Gunter Grass. FROM THE PUBLISHER - This book of sketches introduces to American readers a young German writer whose charm and wit have recently captured the delighted attention of the European literary scene. Perhaps best described as pantomime on paper, Reinhard Lettau’s work evokes, in beautifully controlled language and often on less than a page, visual pictures of people dominated by their activities and by the objects their activities create. Much as a silent film selects and exaggerates, the pieces directly expose the essential qualities of life, having caught them, so to speak, in mid-air, with all the exact harshness, humor, and naked truth of the camera’s eye. Originally published in Germany as two separate volumes, the books have been brought together here under one cover, forming a prose sketchbook of… Read more

FROM THE PUBLISHER - Abigail Bukula was fifteen years old when her parents were killed in a massacre of antiapartheid activists by white apartheid security forces. Because a young soldier spoke up in her defense, she was spared. Now she’s a lawyer with a promising career in the new government, and while she has done her best to put the tragedy behind her, she’s never forgotten Leon Lourens, the soldier who saved her life. So when he walks into her office almost twenty years later, needing her help, she vows to do whatever she can. Someone is slowly killing off members of the team who raided the house where her parents were murdered, and now Leon and an imprisoned colonel are the only targets left.

FROM THE PUBLISHER - The distinguished Cambridge University historian, E. H. Carr, is perhaps the English-speaking world’s leading scholar in the field of twentieth-century Russian history, which has been the main focus of his researches and thinking since 1950 when he began his celebrated multi-volume A HISTORY OF SOVIET RUSSIA. In THE OCTOBER REVOLUTION he summarizes the meaning of the Soviet experience. ‘My concern,’ he writes in an introduction to these eleven essays, ‘is not so much with the ten days that shook the world as with the world-shaking process of which they were the expressions and sometimes the starting point.’ In this context he brings his cool, critical judgment and felicitous style to bear on such subjects as the structure of Soviet society, collectivization, the revolution as Utopia, the revolution from… Read more

New York. 1979. Penguin Books. Reprinted Penguin Classic Paperback Edition. Good in Worn Wrappers. 0140440011. Translated from the Greek & With An Introduction by E. V. Rieu. 367 pages. paperback. Cover shows a bronze relief of Odysseus. FROM THE PUBLISHER - The ODYSSEY (Greek: Odysseia) is one of two major ancient Greek epic poems attributed to Homer. It is, in part, a sequel to the ILIAD, the other work traditionally ascribed to Homer. The poem is fundamental to the modern Western canon. Indeed it is the second - the ILIAD being the first - extant work of Western literature. It was probably composed near the end of the 8th century BC, somewhere in Ionia, the Greek-speaking coastal region of what is now Turkey. The poem mainly centers on the Greek hero Odysseus (or Ulysses, as he was known in Roman myths) and his long journey home following the fall of Troy. It takes Odysseus ten years to reach Ithaca after the ten-year Trojan War. In his absence, it is assumed he has died, and his wife Penelope… Read more

FROM THE PUBLISHER - In OF MEN AND CRABS, Dr. Josué de Castro, one of the world’s great authorities on hunger, writes a novel about hunger’s drama. His poignant story is set in Recife, Brazil, a city of rivers and bridges and mansions, of mud and mangrove and clay shacks. In its marshes live both men and crabs, all obsessed by the craving for food. Here a small boy, João Paulo, discovers the real meaning of hunger-the hunger of the crabs at the water’s edge waiting for the current to bring them a scrap; the hunger of the men sitting on the rail of the old quay dribbling with dreams of imaginary meals. Without really understanding, Joäo Paulo lives in hunger’s constant presence-a presence that shapes all the behavior of Recife’s people. With despotic iron… Read more

The Prisoner, starring Patrick McGoohan, created a sensation when it premiered on television in the 1960s. Since then it has mushroomed in popularity. Now, for the first time, The Official Prisoner Companion presents rare photographs, behind-the-scene stories, original scripts, and answers to the questions that have long perplexed Prisoner fans everywhere. inventory #2041 ISBN: 0446387444.

FROM THE PUBLISHER - Since the golden age of discovery inaugurated by Columbus the quest for an all-water way front Europe to the Far East, across Atlantic and Pacific, has been a world obsession. The idea has possessed the minds of navigators, shippers, business men, admirals, and Governments. Dozens of projects for the forcing of the passage have been advanced; thousands of lives have been lost in the efforts. On May 4, 1904, the Government of the United States took possession of a strip of land 10 miles wide running across the Isthmus of Panama and called the Canal Zone. On August 15, 1914, the Panama Canal was opened to commerce. This began the era of operation. This is the time of… Read more

FROM THE PUBLISHER - FROM THE INTRODUCTION – ‘The best proof of the importance of Russian oil is the efforts of the Powers and the powerful oil trusts to get hold of it. If the petroleum resources of Mosul first shape military campaigns in the World War, then precipitate a serious diplomatic crisis between the United States and Great Britain, and subsequently almost involve Turkey and England in active hostilities despite the fact that their extent is still unknown and that one London expert has volunteered to drink all the oil that is discovered there, it is not difficult to imagine the lengths to which nations and oil magnates would go in order to acquire the petroliferous lands of Baku, Grosni, Emba and Maikop in Russia - lands which contain as much oil as will be found anywhere under a single national flag. Oil has fomented revolutions in Mexico, unseated… Read more
