WILLKIE, Wendell L..
New York 1943, Simon. Black cloth, very good, end paper maps 206p., b.w. photos, 14 x 21 cm. FIRST EDITION THE AUTHOR'S SIGNED PRESENTATION COPY

WENDELL WILLKIE: Was the Republican candidate who tired to to be President of the United States in 1940: ... In 1942, after losing the presidential election to Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1940, Willkie traveled around the world in a four engine converted Consolidated bomber named Gulliver. He traveled 31,000 miles and took 49 days for this circumnavigation of the earth and in the course of the travel met with world leaders, pleading the case for international peacekeeping after the war. * In this book Wendell Willkie gives a highly personal account of his meetings with Stalin, Chiang Kai-shek, General Montgomery, General Chennault and other United Nations leaders. He tells of his talks with prime ministers and kings, and with teachers, soldiers, librarians, factory workers, and farmers around the world. He reports a great awakening that is going on among the peoples of the world and his deep conviction that the United Nations must learn to work together now, while they fight, if they hope to live together after the war is over. * Willkie met with General Claire L. Chennault, commander of the A.V.G. [American Volunteer Group] aka "FLYING TIGERS." In 1942, Willkie visited Kunming the seat of the home base of Chennault, and Chennault presented a letter to Willkie dated Oct 8, 1942 for hand-delivery to President Roosevelt, outlining just how the Japanese could be defeated in China. * From Wikipedia: Wendell Lewis Willkie [February 18, 1892 -October 8, 1944] was a corporate lawyer in the United States and the Republican Party nominee for the 1940 presidential election, despite having never held a prior elected political office. * Although Willkie in 1940 received more votes than any previous GOP candidate [22.3 million votes], he lost to Franklin D. Roosevelt. * On July 23, 1941, Willkie urged unlimited aid to the United Kingdom in its struggle against Nazi Germany. That same year he traveled to Britain and the Middle East as Roosevelt's personal representative, and in 1942 visited the USSR and China in the same capacity. In 1943, Willkie wrote ONE WORLD [this book] a plea for international peacekeeping after the war. * CHINA-U.S.A. RELATIONS WITH MADAME CHIANG KAI-SHEK According to Gardner Cowles publisher of the Des Moines Register, Willkie's visit to the Republic of China led to a bizarre consequence: Madame Chiang Kai-shek, the hugely ambitious co-ruler and First Lady of China, developed the idea that she could seduce and marry Willkie, use China's wealth to help him become president in 1944, and thus become the most powerful woman in the world. Cowles claimed that the affair was consummated in China, and that on a visit to the U.S. a few months later, she told him "If Wendell could be elected, then he and I would rule the world. I would rule the Orient and Wendell would rule the western world." He pointedly did not dismiss the possibility that Willkie, had he been nominated, might have accepted her highly improbable offer on some level. Extracted from Wikipedia. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: Claire L. Chennault: WAY OF A FIGHTER. Several Willkie references and a letter to Willkie by Chennault. * Color scans can be sent by email. Images displayed may not be the actual copy in stock for sale at any given time; if you want to see the exact image of the book or edition in stock, please request this by email and an image will be returned to you by attachment. * * * * BUY WITH * * * * SHIPPING: WE SHIP WORLD WIDE * * * * * The shipping costs displayed for our books on ZVAB are ONLY AN ESTIMATE !!! * ACTUAL costs are based book weight, destination and value. * We will inform you of shipping costs and options once you select the book. **FOREIGN: We usually ship by registered/insured airmail to customers abroad. **DOMESTIC: We ship to USA customers by UPS/FEDEX or U.S. MAIL, appropriate insurance/registry and signature required will appply. ***** Please inquire if you have any questions regarding shipping or payments .

Manuscript; Kingdom of Hungary
1715
Eighteenth-Century Manuscript Relating to the Constitutional Law of Hungary [Manuscript]. [Kingdom of Hungary]. Observationes In Tripartitum Opus Juris Consuetudinarii Inclyti Regum Hungariae per Commissionem Systematicam in Arlo 24. 1715 Fundatum hoc 1717 Anno Posony Celebratum, Elaborate. [Arlo, Hungary, 1715-1717, 1726]. [101, 9 blank, 32 pp.] Folio (12" x 8"). Contemporary paneled calf, ties lacking. Moderate rubbing to boards, heavier rubbing to extremities with wear to spine and corners, rear hinge partially cracked, two leaves at rear of text detached, occasional worming to margins with no loss to text, contemporary armorial bookplate to front pastedown. Some toning to interior, text in neat secretarial hand. The second group of notes, 32 pp., are dated 1726. * Two sets of student notes on the Tripartitum. Compiled in 1514 by Istvan Werboczy [c.1465-1541], a Hungarian jurist and statesman, this collection of early customary laws, though never incorporated formally, was regarded as the second pillar of the Hungarian constitution. It was a de facto law-book of Hungary until 1848. According to the doctrine of the Holy Crown, which appeared in the Tripartitum, the king and the legally equal noblemen formulated the "corpse of the Holy Crown," which symbolized the Hungarian state. This manuscript is one such effort, in the early eighteenth century, to coordinate the Tripartitum with Hungary's constitutional statutes.

AUTHOR'S SIGNED FIRST & ONLY LIMITED EDITION OF 765 COPIES . FIRST & ONLY LIMITED EDITION OF 765 SETS ** A monumental work, well illustrated study on the trade route countries of Central Asia. Always a rare set when complete. * "With descriptive lists of antiques by F.H. Andrews & F.M.G. Lorimer; & appendices by J. Allan et al." Volume 1, 2: text, 1159 pages, with text illustrations. Vol. 3: 137 plates, 59 plans. Vol. 4: 51 color folding maps in matching rose cloth case, with index tabs. ******* M. AUREL STEINS PERSONAL COPY: This is a very nice copy which was likely owned by the author as hia personal letter was found used as a book mark in one of the volumes. The letter is 19 x 25.5 cm., plain toned white paper, written by Sir Aurel Stein using a very wide fountain pen and blue ink. The letter is in remarkable condition and has been folded twice, but now is quite flat and solid. * WITH A VERY RARE HOLOGRAPHIC LETTER FROM AUREL STEIN: "At Highbroom, Ewhurst, Guilford: February 15, 1925 Dear Sirs, Thanks for your letter of the 9th inst. and the account rendered with it. I note in the account of entry of 10/6 charged for the Return of Income Tax for the years 1922-3 and 1923-4. As I was absent from the United Kingdom during the whole of these financial years, no Income Tax was due from the royalties received in these years on my behalf. I accordingly request the favour of an explanation as to how this charge arises against my account, and hope for a refund of the amount. Yours faithfully A. Stein" * Perhaps Aurel Stein got his reply from the Income Tax office and or this was a copy of his letter. It was found lost as a "book mark" found in this set. A lovely insight to Stein, and his thoughts on how the British government had wrongly charged him Income Tax. A lovely holographic letter, written in pen and ink, in his usual and steady hand. Stein letters are rare and seldom found on the market. ******** FIRST & ONLY LIMITED EDITION OF 765 COPIES. We understand that this set was issued in a Limited Edition of only 765 complete copies, the balance of 250 sets were incomplete as they lacked 48 maps. * THE MAPS AND MAP BOX VOLUME: The matching map box is also in bound in rose cloth, 25.5 x 34 cm., and is 5 cm. thick. There is some minor and usual wear to the upper and lower part of the hinged flap, with some old mends.

There is no scuffing whatsoever, and the head/tails of the spines are fresh with a few of the usual wrinkles expected. The joints are strong, tight and the book appears to be by and large unused. There are a few bumped corners: vol. 1: the front upper right corner has a very small bump; vol. 2: faint and very tiny hint of a bump on front lower right, else none; vol. 3: front right and left, and rear corners tiny bump, front lower right a larger bump, please see scans posted to our website for photographs. * DUST JACKETS: The set of three volumes all have the original dust jackets each protected in mylar covers. There was some of the usual wear to the unprotected dust jackets, and some restoration with matching paper was performed from the inside to stabilize the tears and small missing pieces. Overall the jackets are nice with some repairs to the upper and lower spine as well as corners and a few other spots here and there. Finding this set with the dust jacket is exceptionally rare and unusual. The set if ever found most always lacks the dust jackets. *** . * BIBLIOGRAPHY: Stein 1862-1943.

ISBN 9781606963340

NEUBUCH! 229x152x26 mm

Have you ever noticed how the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke contain much of the same information Because the Gospel of John stands apart from the rest of the Gospels, reading them may be confusing.

Will Jesus return physically to this earth Will Christians be living on earth when the antichrist is revealed What does the Bible say about the rapture In this most comprehensive analysis of the Bible's End Time Prophecies, Mr.Reid presents a remarkably insightful and straight-forward explanation of what is to come in the last days. Drawing heavily from both Old and New Testament prophecies, the author lays out the events of the last days, beginning with the 70th week of Daniel, and continuing through the advent of the New Jerusalem; addressing in detail the timing of the rapture with respect to the Great Tribulation and the Millennium. This book is unique in its handling of the book of Revelation. John's vision of the end times is divided into four individual sequences of events. While each of the four sequences cover different time spans, events within each of the sequences progress in chronological order. Therefore, upon harmonizing the four sequences, the end time calendar unfolds neatly and consistently. 'Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh' (Matthew 24:44). Though no one knows the exact day and time, this book will help prepare you for what lies ahead in the last days.

John Reynolds.
CitroExpert 1998
Hardcover, with dustjacket, 211pp., 26.5x23cm., oblong, ills. in col. and b/w., new. ISBN 9076537011.

Today, over twenty five years since manufacturing ceased there, the story of Citro'n's factory at Slough ( in its hey-day one of the largest car assembly plants in the United Kingdom ) is little appreciated by Citro'n enthusiasts in both Britain, France and the Netherlands alike - and virtually unknown by the wider motorbook readership around the world. This carefully researched and lavishly illustrated book, the first officially approved and sponsored account of Citro'n's right-hand-drive vehicles, should set the record straight! In examining the first seventy five years of Automobiles Citro'n's presence in Great Britain, Citro'n from A to X reviews the history of Citro'n Cars Ltd and Citro'n UK Ltd at Slough, recalling the vehicles built at the Slough Works between 1926 and 1966 and all those subsequently imported from France from 1966 onwards until the present day. For the benefit of readers unfamiliar with the marque, it begins with a short account of the founding of the Citro'n firm in France and discusses the earliest imports of Citro'n vehicles into the UK by the first concessionaires, Gaston Ltd. It then goes on to examine the complete span of activities that took place at the Slough factory between its opening in February 1926 and its closure in February 1966 - exactly forty years to the day - during which time it assembled vehicles to supply Citro'n's export markets throughout the entire British Commonwealth as well as the home market in Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Finally, it records the Citro'n models imported into the UK from Citro'n's contintental factories between 1966 and 1998, and gives a full account of the activities of Citro'n UK Ltd up to the present day. Pre-war, post-war and even wartime vehicle production is fully illustrated by over 200 archive pictures ( many previously unpublished ) together with contemporary advertising and publicity material, and also by a new series of full-colour pictures showing some of the very best surviving historic cars photographed by the leading motoring photographer Neill Bruce. The complete span of right-hand-drive vehicles featured and illustrated includes, amongst others, the conventional pre-war rear-wheel-drive models, the Light Fifteen and Six Cylinder Traction Avant, the 2CV and the Bijou, the DS and ID models and the Citro'n Maserati SM, the GS & GSA and the CX, together with the full range of Citro'n's recent and contemporary products.

Excerpt from The God of Our Fathers: An Historical Sermon Preached in the Coates' Street Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, on Fast Day, January 4, 1861 Then I went down to the potters house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hands of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying, O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter saith the Lord. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel. At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it: If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them. And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it; If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then will I repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them. - Jeremiah xviii. 3-10.

Erschienen im Jahr 2004 Letzte ISBN: 978-3-941336-23-0 This work casts light on the actions of the United Kingdom during the Cyprus Crisis of 1963-64. In particular, the volume concentrates on a very specific period of events, charting the course of British actions from the start of fighting to the moment when UN Security Council Resolution 186 passed responsibility for peacekeeping and peacemaking over to the United Nations. As is shown, Britain actually undertook several different roles during this period. On the one hand, it was a crisis manager and peacekeeper. Its timely decision, along with Greece and Turkey, to establish a peacekeeping force, the Joint Truce Force, certainly helped to limit the extent of fighting on the island, and thus reduced the chance of direct Turkish intervention. However, as this work shows, it was not an easy role to play and required a significant manpower commitment from the United Kingdom. On the other hand, Britain also tried to act as peacemaker. At first this was done informally on the island, but was later supplemented by a formal peace process in London. Unfortunately, the process failed in its objective and in doing so created a rift between Britain and the Greek Cypriots, which ended all hopes that Britain might be able to broker a compromise between the parties. It also affected Britain's efforts to find an alternative peacekeeping force to replace the Joint Truce Force - an effort that involved looking at the Commonwealth and NATO as possible peacekeepers. In the end, the United Nations was called upon to keep the peace, a role that is forty years old. However, the book also shows that the 1963-64 Crisis is profoundly important for two other reasons. First of all, it was during these months that the Greek Cypriots were accorded international legitimacy as the Government of the Republic of Cyprus. As will be shown, this came about partly as a requirement of international peacemaking and peacekeeping. However, it also becomes clear that the actual confirmation of this recognition involved a certain amount of what the Turkish Cypriots see as betrayal - betrayal by Britain, by the United States, and, most surprisingly, by Turkey. Secondly, this period saw the acceptance by the international community of the legality of the Treaty of Guarantee. As a result, Turkey retained an internationally accepted constitutional right to intervene in the island's affairs. This right was put into effect in 1974 after a coup ordered by the then military government in Athens overthrew Archbishop Makarios, the first president of the independent state. As a result the island was divided and the more modern understanding of the 'Cyprus Problem' was created. Drawing on official British government documents and interviews with many of the protagonists of the period, this work is the first in-depth study of Britain's leading role during this critically important juncture in the modern history of Cyprus.

A UN-Habitat Award. Nairobi to Nanjing. - Hussam Bin Essa Al Khalifa und Howard King:
Hussam Bin Essa Al Khalifa und Howard King:
Bahrain: Private Secretariat Prime Minister's Court, 2009.
174 S., durchgehend illustriert. Fadengehefteter Originalpappband.

Sehr gutes Ex. - At the opening ceremony of the Governing Council Mrs. Anna Tibaijuka, Under-Secretary General of the United Nations, Executive Director UN-Habitat & Director General of the United Nations Office at Nairobi (UNON) officially honoured the selection of His Highness Shaikh Khalifa as the winner of the 2006 Special Citation Habitat Scroll of Honour Mr, President, Distinguished Delegates, Fortunately, we know that all these things are doable. It is not Utopia to fight urban poverty and to eradicate slums. Allow me to demonstrate how and where housing poverty and homelessness has been prevailed upon successfully and in a relatively short period of time, within a lifetime because of vision, good governance, political commitment, care and solidarity with the poor. The winner of the prestigious Special Citation Award of the Habitat Scroll of Honor for year 2006 is His Highness Shaikh Khalifa Bin Salman AI Khalifa, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Bahrain. As his Special Envoy will further elaborate, Shaikh Khalifa has dedicated his life to deliver sustainable development in his country by fighting poverty and working for all his citizens. We at UN-Habitat have admired and identified his leadership and policies as a best practice in good urban governance to be emulated. We have been working in that country for several years under our urban indicators programme and have collected and analysed reliable first-hand information that living conditions for all have been transformed dramatically. Some might hasten to add that the Prime Minister of \ Bahrain has presided over a country rich in oil. But if we look around, we see many other countries where huge oil and other natural resource endowments and revenues have failed and continue to fail to benefit the common citizen. Instead such rich natural resources have become a source of conflict, and ended up displacing rural residents who are now refugees in sprawling urban slums. In many parts of the world, : notably Africa, natural resources have become a curse rather than a blessing. In Bahrain, it is exactly the opposite. Under the able leadership of Shaikh Khalifa who has been at the helm of his country since 1971 as Prime Minister, the incomes from oil have trickled down to the lowest income levels of society, and resulted in a harmonious society. Please join me in a round of applause to congratulate Shaikh Khalifa for his outstanding achievements that have now brought him this prestigious recognition. In conclusion, UN-Habitat will be pleased to work with the Government of Bahrain in popularizing this approach, and inviting others to emulate this good example! One billion fellow human beings are counting on us. This Governing Council has a moral and ethical obligation not to fail them. Ethical issues apart,-sustainable urbanization is also an economic and environmental imperative without which peace, stability and sustainable development cannot be achieved.... (Vorwort)

Friedrich von GOLOWIN (fl. 1805 - 1814), Schleswig: Cai Frantz Christiani, 1813, Copper engraving with full original hand colour, dissected into 20 sections and mounted on linen as originally issued, with original marbled card slipcase (Very Good condition, some wear to linen at fold vertices, very minor stains along margins), 56 x 68
An especially fine example of the first scientific survey of the Duchy of Schleswig, executed by Friedrich von Golowin for the Crown Prince of Denmark. This magnificent map of the Duchy of Schleswig is based on the scientific surveys conducted by the Danish military surveyor Friedrich von Golowin during the Napoleonic Wars. It represents the first systematic scientific survey of the region and consequently occupies an important place in the history of the cartography of both Germany and Denmark. The rendering is extremely detailed and accurate for the time, with the various counties distinguished in attractive full original colours, while numerous symbols are employed to describe various aspects of the landscape, both natural and manmade. Important locations depicted include the Island of Sylt (today a popular German holiday destination) and the key towns of Flensburg, Sonderburg (Sönderborg, Denmark), Schleswig and Tondern (Tönder, Denmark). The various symbols throughout the map are described in the 'Erklärung der Zeichen' (Legend of Symbols), and include: Festungen (fortresses), Städte (cities), Flecken (towns), Kirchdörfer (church villages), Dörfer (villages), Einzelne Kirchen (country churches), Adliche und Kanzeley Güter (noble estates), Meierhöfe und grosse Parcelen (manors), Einzelne Höfe und Häuser (large farms), Schlösser (castles), Wassermühlen (watermills), Fährer (roads), Heide und Mohr (heaths and moors), Holtz (woodlands), Bezeichnung der Gränze, zwichen Geest und Marschländereien (frontier between terra firma and marshlands), Post und Landstrassen (post roads), Marsch Deich (dikes) and Amts und Landes Gränzes (municipal and country boundaries). Along bottom of the map run the lines 'Seiner Königlichen Hoheit dem Kronprinzen Friedrich von Dännemark' with the Royal Danish coat of arms, dedicating the map to Crown Prince Frederick of Denmark. Frederick served as the Regent of Denmark on behalf of his incapacitated father, Christian VII, from 1784 to 1808 and later became King Frederick VI of Denmark (reigned 1808 to 1839). Also included, in the map's lower right corner, is an inset of the island of Fehmarn. Schleswig is an ancient duchy that traverses the isthmus connecting Denmark's Jutland Peninsula with Germany, and has long been closely associated with the neighboring Duchy of Holstein, located immediately to the south. Schleswig was an economically prosperous region, with productive farmland and small but wealthy maritime trading centres. Due to its strategic geographical position and the fact that it occupied the nexus between the Scandic and Germanic worlds, Schleswig was frequently the scene of conflict and diplomatic disputes. Traditionally, Schleswig and Holstein were a part of the Kingdom of Denmark, although the ducal house of Holstein-Gottorp (which was closely related to the Danish Royal Family) harboured ambitions of independence. Following the Second Northern War (1655-60), in which Sweden badly defeated Denmark, the Holstein-Gottorp family arranged for Schleswig and Holstein to technically remain a part of Denmark (as was legally required), while for all practical purposes it was an independent state allied to Sweden. This bizarre arrangement continued for almost three generations. In the wake of the Great Northern War (1700-21), during which Sweden was defeated, Denmark managed to regain direct control of Schleswig and a part of Holstein (they regained the remainder of Holstein in 1773). Golowin's mapping of Schleswig occurred during the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars, and was viewed by the Danish government as a project of great importance and urgency. While Denmark had declared its armed neutrality in the conflict, Great Britain viewed this stance as an affront and in 1801 bombarded Copenhagen. For the next several years, Denmark tried valiantly to stay out the war that was ravaging the German states. Crown Prince Frederick knew that as Schleswig and Holstein occupied the landward approaches from Germany, they were quite plausibly future theatres of conflict. However, it remained that Schleswig and Holstein had not been surveyed since as a whole since Johannes Mejer's mapping done in the 1640s. While impressive for the time, Mejer's maps were now completely out of date and almost totally useless to the Danish high command with respect of planning defensive lines in the Schleswig and Holstein or for leading an army on the move. It was in this context that Friedrich von Golowin was tasked with executing advanced trigonometric surveys of both Holstein and Schleswig, being the first ever comprehensive and truly scientific mapping of these regions. Golowin proceeded first to survey Holstein, as well as the neighboring German city states of Hamburg and Lübeck. This resulted in the Karte von dem Herzogthum Holstein den Gebiethen der Reichs=Staedte Hamburg u: Lübek u: des Hochstifts Lübek (Berlin, 1801), an excellent accomplishment, albeit one which was of a much smaller scale than the present map. Golowin next turned his attention to the detailed mapping of Schleswig. Leading various field teams of military surveyors, supplied with the most advance equipment and ample resources, he completed this task with considerable care, yet with great dispatch. The first edition of Golowin's survey was published in Schleswig by Röhss & Christiani in 1805. A second edition was printed in 1806, with the present third edition being issued in Schleswig in 1813 by Cai Frantz Christiani (the successor to the firm of Röhss & Christiani). Today Schleswig is divided between Denmark and the German state of Schleswig-Holstein. All of Schleswig and Holstein had been taken by force from Denmark in 1864 by Prussia. The current boundary, (which runs just south of Tönder and just north of Flensborg) was set in 1920, when the northern part of Schleswig was returned to Denmark following a plebiscite. Friedrich von Golowin (fl. 1805-1814) was a Danish military engineer who was a member of an august noble family, although little is known about his biography. He was descended from Count Feodor Alekseyevich Golovin (1650-1706), the Russian boyar who served as the chancellor and confidant of Peter the Great. The Golowins subsequently married into the local ducal house of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Beck. As such, Friedrich would have enjoyed easy access to the Danish royal court, a connection that allowed him to be entrusted with such an important project as mapping Schleswig and Holstein. During the period that Golowin surveyed the region he held the rank of First Lieutenant and Royal Surveyor attached to the Schleswig Infantry Regiment. Records show that he was promoted the rank of major in 1814. Golowin's map of Schleswig is an important monument in the Enlightenment mapping Northern Europe and the present offering is an especially fine example, with full original colour (rarely seen on this map), accompanied by its original slipcase.

De honesta voluptate. - Platina, Bartolomaeus.
Platina, Bartolomaeus.
Cividale, Gerardus de Lisa de Flandria, 1480.
4to. (93) ff, wanting terminal blank. Bound in contemporary ornate blind-tooled calf over wooden boards, spine with two raised bands; remains of two metallic clasps with engraved devices. Initials calligraphed in red and blue throughout. Housed in a custom clamshell box.

Scarce early edition of this landmark work of Western civilization: the first printed book on food and drink. "De Honesta Voluptate" is also an invaluable source for cultural historians tracing early trade routes with the East: Platina's use and discussion of ginger, rice, cinnamon, saffron, cloves, oranges, and so on indicates the already substantial commercial relationship between East and West by the mid-15th century, primarily via Arab traders. A classic text of the Renaissance, no other complete copy in an early binding has been seen in auction records of the last 50 years. - Platina, the future librarian of the Vatican, composed the present work in the early 1460s while on a summer retreat in the hills of Tuscany. The ten books of "De Honesta Voluptate" discuss the origin, properties, and uses of culinary ingredients ranging from herbs and spices to fruits, vegetables, and birds, beasts, and fish. Platina records some 240 recipes employing these ingredients; yet his guide is more than a mere cook-book, and contains much advice on 'the art of good living': of eating and drinking in moderation, of the value of sexual intercourse, and so on. - As the only such printed record of its time, the text of "De Honesta Voluptate" is a fascinating source on the use of exotics in European cooking at an early date. Trade routes reaching as far as China ensured that wealthy Europeans had access to a sometimes surprising variety of spices, grains, and fruits. The most important influence came from the Arab world, particularly via Sicily and Spain. "Arabic influence was clearly welcomed by Italian taste. Numerous recipes call for relatively exotic imported ingredients: aniseed, dates, pomegranates, rice, and oranges... the recipes show an obvious Arabic influence where they use sugar and cinnamon sprinkled over an otherwise savory dish, or sauces flavored with raisins as well as prunes" (Adamson, Regional Cuisines of Medieval Europe, p. 92). Perhaps the most important Eastern contribution to Platina's culinary repertoire was in fact sugar - without which, he laments, the ancient Romans suffered. "Sugar is brought not only from Arabia," he writes (fol. 16), "but also from Crete and Sicily". Discussions of saffron, rose-water, cinnamon, pistachios, coriander, cloves, pomegranates (named after the Muslim kingdom of Granada), rice, almonds, and pepper are also found in Platina's text. Peterson ("The Arabian Influence on Western European Cooking") indeed suggests that "there is reason to believe that Europe made use of Arab cooking manuscripts... in the compilation of their own cooking texts". - "De Honesta Voluptate" was first printed in 1475 at Rome; a subsequent, but undated edition is assumed to predate the present, third edition - the last printed before Platina's death in 1481. All early editions are rare in trade, and the present copy is the only complete example we have seen in a contemporary or indeed near-contemporary binding. - One or two faint marginal annotations in a contemporary hand. Some finger-soiling and toning to title and scattered leaves - commensurate with use - but generally a fresh and very charming example, in what may be its original binding. Front board a little scuffed; some chipping to head and foot of spine; lower clasp with remains of early leather substitute; front endpaper renewed. Small burn hole, affecting a few letters on f 44; small wormhole also affecting a few letters through four leaves of index. Engraved bookplate on pastedown, ca. 1750, with Latin motto: "I am the possession of the Cloister of Wessenbrunn. Ho! Restore me to my master: so right demands". - HC (Add) 13052. Goff P-763.

Library stickers and stamps on the spine and on the FEP. Occupational Health: A Practical Guide for Managers examines the reasons why employers should address the health of their workforce. It explores the implication that health issues have for bottom line performance and offers guidelines for developing an effective occupational health policy and associated procedures. The authors are both senior professionals in the field and have a wealth of industrial experience to draw on. They have used their first-hand knowledge to produce a practical introduction to occupatioal health which includes the latest legislative requirements and current recommended practice. Material is presented in an easy-to-read, non-technical format, making the book particularly useful to the reader with no previous knowledge of the field. Short executive summaries at the beginning of each chapter highlight key action points for quick reference, while a more extensive reference section at the end of the book signposts the way to detailed information on specific issues. The book is in four parts. Part one provides an introduction to the history and scope of occupational health, discusses contemporary practice and looks at the legal and organizational factors involved. Part two examines the some of the most common issues in occupational health, including stress management, anti-smoking policies and health promotion. Specific considerations surrounding the employment of women and people with disabilities are dealt within part three. The final part offers a practical approach to two key aspects of health and safety legislation: regulations relating to Display Screen Equipment and the Manual Handling of Loads. Occupational Health: A Practical Guide for Managers is essential reading for occupational health practitioners and all professionals involved in making and implementing health and safety policy. It is also an extremely useful resource for students seeking to gain an understanding of health issues in the workplace No Dust Jacket paperback Government Reference Library

Library sticker on the spine, inside of the cover and on the FEP. Stamp on title page, creasingto the cover and rubbing to the ends. Throughout the 1980s, the National Health Service has been the subject of almost continuous re-organization and constant political debate. Its sheer size and complexity, however, baffled most attempts at systematic description and analysis. This is a guide to the way the NHS works. Based on anthropological research behind the scenes in seven district health authorities, it features first-hand accounts of the age old methods of administration and the new attempts at business-style management. It will be of interest not only to health service professionals and academics in social policy, public administration and health studies, but also to anyone interested in our changing national health service No Dust Jacket paperback Government Reference Library

Er spielt mit herausragenden Barockorchestern (Il Fondamento, Huelgas Ensemble, Anima Eterna, La Petite Bande, Collegium Vocale), gibt Konzerte in europäischen Ländern, Mexico und China und wirkt häufig mit bei Rundfunk- und CD-Aufnahmen. Er ist Mitgründer und ständiger Cembalist des Barockorchesters B'Rock, das sein erstes Konzert im September 2005 gab und seither äusserst erfolgreiche Tourneen in Belgien, Deutschland und Holland absolvierte. Seit einigen Jahren widmet er sich dem Dirigieren, wofür er sich bei David Angus (England), Diego Masson (Paris, Dartington), Lucas Vis (Holland) und Richard Armstrong (Scottish Opera) ausbilden ließ. Bisher dirigierte er schon ein vielgestaltiges Repertoire, das von La Dafne (1608) von Marco da Gagliano über Symphonien von Beethoven und Brahms bis zu Werken von John Cage und Frank Nuyts reicht. Komposition studierte Frank Agsteribbe bei Frederic Rzewski. Seine intensive Beschäftigung mit Alter Musik beeinflusst seinen Stil wesentlich, wie aus Titeln wie Haydn-Variationen (1991), Tallis-Variationen (1992), Susanna (nach Lassus, 1994), Partita per Violoncello solo (2002), Nacht mit BACH (2003) oder Piamozartet (2006) hervorgeht. Über vierzig seiner Kompositionen wurden vom Rundfunk oder auf CD aufgenommen. Seit einigen Jahren wird er auch mehr und mehr außerhalb Belgiens aufgeführt bei wichtigen Konzerten in Brasilien, Berlin (Konzerthaus und Deutsche Oper) und beim Gaudeamus Festival in Amsterdam. Seit 1989 ist Frank Agsteribbe Dozent für Analyse am Königlich Flämischen Konservatorium Antwerpen. Das Orchesterwerk Elegiae schrieb im Auftrag des Flämischen Rundfunkorchesters. Die Uraufführung fand am 1. Oktober 2003 unter der Leitung von Bjarte Engeset statt, danach wurde das Werk noch in verschiedenen Städten Flanderns gespielt. Der Titel Elegiae (Elegien) ist bezeichnend für die Grundidee: Trauergesänge. Hierzu wurde der Komponist angeregt durch einen Besuch der Katakomben in Rom einerseits, ein kleines Stück von Dietrich Buxtehude andererseits, nämlich die Arie Muss der Tod denn nun doch trennen, eine verinnerlichte Elegie. Einige Bruchstücke dieser Arie werden am Ende der Elegiae wörtlich zitiert. Außerdem wird auch eine für Streicher spezifische Schreibweise von Anfang an übernommen, das so genannte Bogenvibrato', in der Barockzeit ein typischer Ausdruck der Wehmut. Elegiae hat drei musikalische Themen: ein Signalthema (das hauptsächlich von den Trompeten gespielt wird), ein Choralthema und eine eher abstrakte' Melodie. Sie wird bei der Eröffnung des Werkes von verschiedenen Holzbläsern ausgeführt, die dieses Thema untereinander durchgeben. Die ganze Komposition ist als eine einzige, mächtige Steigerung aufgefasst. Nach der ohrenbetäubenden Explosion der Emotionen folgt zum Schluss das Buxtehude-Zitat, in sich gekehrt, aber hier und da kommentiert von dem Signalmotiv und einer Reminiszenz an das Choralthema. Frank Agsteribbe / Jan Dewilde (Übersetzung Michael Scheck) Aufführungsmaterial: http://users.telenet.be/frankagsteribbe Diese Partitur wurde herausgegeben in Zusammen-arbeit mit dem Studienzentrum für Flämische Musik (Studiecentrum voor Vlaamse Muziek) (www.svm.be). top of page Frank Agsteribbe (Gent, 1968) Elegiae (2003) Preface Frank Agsteribbe is a talented musician who plays the clarinet, a composer and music theoretician. After his organ studies at the Royal Flemish Conservatory of Music in Antwerp, he studied harpsichord with Jos Van Immerseel, and he completed his studies with Gustav Leonhardt, Davitt Moroney and Luigi Ferdinando Tagliavini. He plays with prominent baroque orchestras (Il Fondamento, Huelgas Ensemble, Anima Eterna, La Petite Bande, Collegium Vocale), performs in different European countries, Mexico and China, and often collaborates in radio and CD recordings. He is the co-founder and harpsichordist of the baroque orchestra B'Rock, which performed for the first time in September 2005 and has enjoyed great success in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany ever since. He has also been concentrating on orchestral conducting for quite some years now. He has studied with David Angus (United Kingdom), Diego Masson (Paris, Dartington), Lucas Vis (the Netherlands) and Richard Armstrong (Scottish Opera) and has since conducted a very diverse repertory, including La Dafne (1608) by Marco da Gagliano, symphonies by Beethoven and Brahms and pieces by John Cage and Frank Nuyts. Agsterribe studied composition with Frederic Rzewski. His direct contact with old music defines his style of composing, which can be deducted from titles such as: Haydn-variaties (Haydn Variations) (1991), Tallis-variations (1992), Susanna (after Lassus; 1994), Partita per violoncello solo (2002), Nacht mit BACH (2003) of Piamozartet (2006). More than forty of his compositions were recorded for radio broadcasts or CD's. These last few years, his work is also being performed outside of Belgium, with important concerts in Brazil, Berlin (Konzerthaus en Deutsche Opera) and at the Gaudeamus Festival in Amsterdam. Since 1989, Agsteribbe has been teaching analysis at the Royal Flemish Conservatory of Music in Antwerp. He was asked to compose the orchestral work Elegiae, by the Flemish Radio Orchestra; they performed the work for the first time on 1 October 2003, conducted by Bjarte Engeset, and went on to perform it in many different Flemish cities. The title Elegiae alludes to the general starting point of the composition: elegies. The composer was inspired by a visit to the catacombs in Rome on the one hand, and a short piece of music by Dietrich Buxtehude on the other hand by: the aria Muss der Tod denn nun doch trennen, a modest lamentation. A few fragments from this aria are quoted literally at the end of the Elegiae. The specific style of writing for strings (the so-called 'bow vibrato', very typical for the baroque expression of melancholy) has also been adopted from the beginning of the piece. Elegiae has three main themes: a signalling theme (usually played by the trumpets), a choral theme and a more 'abstract' melody (can be heard at the start; several woodwind players are passing on the theme to one another) The work has been composed as one large climax: the deafening outburst of emotions is followed by the quote of Buxtehude: modest, every now and then commented on by the signalling motive and a reminder of the choral theme.

The Netherlands form a kingdom of moderate extent, situated on the borders of the ocean, opposite to the southeast coast of England, and stretching from the frontiers of Prance to those of Hanover. The country is principally composed of low and humid grounds, presenting a vast plain, irrigated by the waters from all those neighboring states which are traversed by the Rhine, the Meuse, and the Scheldt. This plain, gradually rising toward its eastern and southern extremities, blends on the one hand with Prussia, and on the other with France. Having, therefore, no natural or strongly marked limits on those sides, the extent of the kingdom could only be determined by convention; and it must be at all times subject to the arbitrary and varying influence of European policy. Its greatest length, from north to south, is about two hundred and twenty English miles; and its breadth, from east to west, is nearly one hundred and forty.

Document from the year 2012 in the subject Romance Languages - Italian and Sardinian Studies, grade: -, Universita degli Studi della Basilicata, course: Local Italian History, language: Italian, comment: The Appendix has names of historians of Basilicata and titles of their works, with date and editor. , abstract: This volume offers a survey about a case study in local italian modern historiography, Indeed, historians of Basilicata between XVIth and XVIIIth century, if we look ate their work with scientific criteria, are likely to appear inconsistent and obvious examples of dilettantism, with cuts, misunderstandings of the sources, insertion of authorities invented or nonexistent, failure to find primary sources or lack of verification of those availables. All this entries, however, do not concern exclusively one or more historians in particular: it is, more than anything else, a relief advanced by scholars at the whole historiography of the Kingdom of Naples of the modern age.However, these obvious flaws were offset by a constant attention to insert the mosaic of sources in a continuous narrative, or at least chronologically uniform, designed to leave no gray areas in the 'biography' of the community, by 'patriotic' intention to the old memories with constant use of humanistic scholarship, not to mention the numerous references to deserving nobles who take charge of preserving and restoring precious relics of the past, and finally, by a principle that recurs several times in the course of the thriving southern historiographical production and which was inaugurated by the leader of the southern baroque historiography, Giovanni Antonio Summonte, in his History of the City and Kingdom of Naples, the greater value of the authorities closest to the facts narrated.And, above all, in these historic remained, alive and constant concern of the 'mirror of power,' that is, the need for self-representation for use by the central government, emphasizing, therefore, the hand on the titles of antiquity and nobility that Naples itself had offered.

The International Conference on Fracture Mechanics in Engineering Applica tion convened at the r~ational Aeronautical Laboratory (NAL) in Bangalore, India, March 26-30, 1979, with the presence of approximately 400 scientists and engi neers. The participants included individuals from all parts of India, United States of America, United Kingdom, Japan, Holland, France, Hong Kong, Korea, Sweden and Poland. The Conference was organized jointly by NAL, Bangalore;and Lehigh University, USA. Various organizations in India have also supported the Conference most generously. Professor S. Dhawan, Director of the Indian Institute of Science and Secre tary of Department of Space, delivered the inaugural speech. He said that the advance of science was the precondition of the development and survival of human society in the modern world. 'It is true that in recent times, science and tech nology - and their practitioners - have been subjected to much public scrutiny, debate and severe criticism'. On the other hand, the depletion of non-renewable resources, degradation of the natural environment and a host of other problems had been laid at the door of technology and science. One cannot deny that funda mental advances in the physics and chemistry of the structure of matter had led to spectacular engineering progress. Advanced technologies like nuclear energy and space exploration were but expression of the central role of computors, elec tronics, optics, polymers, etc. , and all of these were heavily dependent on the successful application of material science and technology.
