1 ALSOP, Susan Mary TREE, Marietta To Marietta from Paris 1945-1960. First British Edition in dustjacket
Weidenfeld and Nicolson, London, 1976, ISBN:0297770942 
ALSOP, Susan Mary. To Marietta from Paris 1945-1960. London : Weidenfeld and Nicolson, (1976). First British Edition. Pp (8),ix-xi,(3),1-370,+ 8 pp plates. Index. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Their friendship began when, as teen-aged girls, they engaged in spirited political discussions over peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches one Maine summer; it went on to span decades and continents. As the wife of an American attache to the United States Embassy in Paris, Susan Mary Alsop kept up an intimate, witty, andextremely candid correspondence with her childhood friend Marietta Tree. T his remarkable epistolary journal records her impressions of the exciting years she spent as an observer from a very privileged vantage point, as a ravaged Europe emerged from World War II. Here she describes everything from her conversations with Winston Churchill (He has decided I am...French...and nothing will deter him from speaking French to me) and visits to the stately homes of England (Lunching with the Duke of Marlborough is a mixed pleasure. His palace and his park are superb...but he is an arrogant, odious host who thinks he is a lady-killer) to the sound advice she received on the secrets of entertaining from "the only really glamorous woman in the world," Lady Diana Cooper (Oh just give..plenty of booze and hope it will go.) Whether Mrs. Alsop is confiding delicious pieces of gossip about the people who shaped an age--the Windsors, Harold Nicolson and Vita Sackville-West, the Mitford sisters, Rothschilds, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Ho Chi Minh, Elizabeth and Margaret Cocteau, Camus and Sartre, Dior and Balmain--or giving serious assessments in her reporting of events that once again brought the world perilously close to war--the Berlin blockade, French Indo-China, Suez, and Hungary--what emerges from her letters is a spontaneous, totally unaffected, and living social history. All these stories will be in the history books, Mrs. Alsop wrote her friend, but it does send a chill down one's spine to hear them told by the actors in the drama." (from the dj).

5 BALFOUR, Michael Adversaries : America, Russia and the Open World 1941-62. Firs Editon in dustjacket

BALFOUR, Michael. The Adversaries : America, Russia and the Open World 1941-62. London, Boston and Henley : Routledge & Kegan Paul, (1981). First Edition. Pp (6),vii-xv,(1),1-259,(1). Index. 8vo, red cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "The AtJantic Charter of 1941 constituted the West's blue-print for post-war society. Accordingly it is here that Michael Balfour begins his account of how America and Russia developed as the rival super-powers' in that society. By 1962 the American concept of an Open World had brought a widedegree of political and economic freedom to half the globe, together with an unprecedented and apparently lasting affluence. Command Economies, however, are incompatible with Open Worlds. Rather than fall into line with the American design, the Soviet Union persevered with its conflicting system and thereby divided the world into two antagonistic halves. This new political pattern generated the crucial question of the post-war years: will the clash of views end in war or can the two halves learn to co-exist ? By 1962 it began to look as if this question could be answered optimistically, and it is here that the narrative part of the book ends after covering the economic and strategic aspects as well as the politics. In a concluding chapter the author relects on these developments and on the possibility that 1962 was a false dawn." (from the dj), Contents : Chapter 1. 1941-5. 1.

BEKE, Laszlo. A Student's Diary : Budapest, October 16 - November 1, 1956. Edited and translated by Leon Kossar and Ralph M. Zoltan. Toronto : The Macmillan Company of Canada Limited, 1957. First Canadian Edition. Pp (8),9-125,(3).Illustrated with sketches. 8vo, black cloth boards, white cloth spinewith black and white and red and green panels. "Laszlo Beke is the pseudon ym of a young Hungarian art student who was one of the organizers of the Budapest protest meetings that triggered the Hungarian revolution. He was a leader of the freedom fighters who, sometimes with guns and sometimes with little more than their fists, stormed the radio station and the headquartersof the dread secret police and battled Soviet tanks against incredible odd s. He witnessed the dramatic return of Cardinal Mintndszenty and was among the student representatives who vainly conferred with the leaders of the government. Only near the end, when it became irrevocably clear that the Russians were once more encircling the city for the ultimate onslaught, did Laszio Beke and his pregnant wife make their perilous escape to refuge in the West. In this diary, reconstructed from his notes and sketches after he finally reached Canada, he vividly and dramatically recounts the events of those catastrophic days and nights. His story is simply told: the revolution as seen by a student who helped to start it and who helped to lead it. Yet few will read this small volume as merely the timely report of an absorbing recent event, for it is a deeply moving document of human strength, culminating in the triumph and tragedy of men struggling to be free. The author's illustrations give added emotional impact to his story." (from the dj). Penned name, else very god in rubbed, ,browned, slightly torn, but unclipped, dustjacket. 18.00

Some years later he was the proprietor of the Hapsburg, one of the ftnest restaurants in New York. Recently he has devoted ail the time he could spare from his wife and his daughter to writing and illustrating.

"'Armies on the Danube 1809' is a history and organizational guide to one of the most bitterly contested and evenly matched campaigns of the Napoleonic era. In 1809, for the fifth time since the advent of the French Revolution, Austria declared yet another war on France. Determined to defeat the 'corrupting forces of revolution and anarchy who, by their very existence, threaten our way of life,' Emperor Francis II of Austriasent into the field a new army with the country's best general at its head . Learning from the humiliating, disastrous defeats of the Ulm - Austerlitz campaigns of 1805, Archduke Charles of Austria reorganized and retrained thecountry's armed forces in preparation for the inevitable renewed struggle against France. In 1809 his time came. With far-flung Napoleonic armies across Europe and Iberia, the Habsburgs mobilized and struck. Advantages of preparation and surprise yielded some initial successes but soon the Austro-Hungarian forces were driven back deep into their country by an adversary who was no ordinary general." -from the dustjacket.

BRUCE-CHWATT, Leonard Jan, and Julian de ZULUETA. The Rise and Fall of Malaria in Europe : A Historico-Epidemiological Study. (Oxford) : Published on behalf of the Regional Office for Eurooe of the World Health Organization [by] Oxford University Press, 1980. First Edition. Pp (6),[vii]-xvi,[1],+ 48pp plates. Maps. Index. 8vo, navy cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Althoug h 'intermittent fevers' or 'agues' had retreated from northern Europe in the nineteenth century, southern Europe remained in the grip of seasonal epidemics of malaria until the 1950s. Endemic malaria has now disappeared from the whole of Europe thanks to the efforts of the countries concerned and the co-ordination and support provided by the World Health Organization. The publication of this book, written by two internationally known malariologists, coincides with the commemoration of the centenary of the discovery of the malaria parasite by Alphonse Laveran. The authors trace the biological origins of malaria on the continent of Europe, follow the course of this ancient disease, and outline its influence on historical events. The narrativecovers the period from the first description of intermittent fevers by Gre ek and Roman writers and physicians, through the Middle Ages, and up to thepresent time. The book is not only a historical record based on some new s ources but is also an epidemiological study of various geographical, climatic, entomological, socio-economic, and political factors that have contributed to the elimination of malaria as a serious public health problem in Europe. The authors describe in detail the organization and progress of malaria eradication programmes during the past quarter of a century in Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Romania, Yugoslavia, and the USSR. The resurgence of malaria in Asia and the enormous prevalence of the disease in Africa are still matters of particular concern for the world, and the authors stress theserious menace now presented by malaria imported into many European countr ies from the tropics. The book is illustrated by a large number of photographs and drawings, many of them hitherto unpublished, and contains an extensive bibliography." (from the dj). Contents : 1. Introduction. 2. Origins. 3. Historical record. 4. Malaria in the Balkan countries (Albania, Bulgaria,Greece, Romania, Yugoslavia, European Turkey). 5. Malaria in two Mediterra nean islands (Malta and Cyprus). 6.

"The World Alliance of Reformed Churches (WARC) was created in 1970 by a merger of two bodies, the Alliance of the Reformed Churches holding the Presbyterian System, representing Presbyterian and Reformed churches, and the International Congregational Council. The Alliance of the Reformed Churches holding the Presbyterian System was formed in London in 1875. It held councils which had no legislative authority but great moral weight. In them the various Augustinian non-prelatical and in general presbyterial bodies found representation. They were upward of 90 in number, scattered all over the world, with 25,000,000 adherents. The published reports of the proceedings of these councils contain much valuable matter of all kinds, as papers are read, statistics presented, and many speeches made. Councils were held at London, 1875; Edinburgh, 1877; Philadelphia, 1880; Belfast, 1884; London, 1888; Toronto, 1892; Glasgow, 1896; Washington, 1899." - wikipedia.
