1 ABULAFIA, David Discovery of Mankind: Atlantic Encounters in the Age of Columbus. First Edition in dustjacket
Yale University Press, New Haven and London, 2008, ISBN:9780300125825 
ABULAFIA, David. The Discovery of Mankind : Atlantic Encounters in the Age of Columbus. New Haven and London : Yale University Press, (2008). First Printing. Pp (6),[vii]-xxvi,(6),[3]-379,(7). First Printing. Maps in the text. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. David Abulafia, FSA, FRHistS, FBA (b. December 12, 1949, Twickenham, London). "The first landings in the Atlantic World heralded striking and often terrifying impressions of peoples entirely isolated from the explorer's continents, customs and religions. From the first recorded encounters with the native inhabitants of the Canary Islands in 1341, to Columbus's explorations in 1492 and Cabral's discovery of Brazil in 1500, western Europeans struggled to make sense of the existence of the peoples they met. Were they Adam's children, of a common lineage with the peoples of the Old World, or were they a separate creation, the monstrous races of medieval legend? Should they govern themselves? Did theyhave the right to be free? Did they know God? Could they know God? Emphasi zing contact between peoples rather than the discovery of lands, and using archaeological findings as well as eyewitness accounts, David Abulafia explores the social lives of the inhabitants, the motivations and tensions of the first transactions and the swift transmutation of wonder to vicious exploitation. Lucid, readable, and scrupulous, this is a work of humane engagement with a period in which a tragically violent standard was set for European conquest across the world." - from the dj.

Krummes, Steamer Stories : An Annotated Bibliography of Steamship Fiction, 1845-2012 p. 7.

A novel.

"Good-natured, incompetent, friendly, and lustful - at sixty the crony of college students and high-living officials - Vasco Moscoso de Aragao laments that his life as the son of a wealthy merchant has brought him no rank, degree, or title. So - though Vasco has never made a sea voyage - a friend gets him a licence as a ship's captain. Moving to Periperi in the suburbs of Bahía, he takes up with relish the life of an honored, retired old sea dog surrounded by nautical instruments, sea-going uniforms, and listeners eager for his "reminiscences" of the oceans and exotic lands that he has visited. Vasco is so endlessly and colorfully inventive that only a few of his canniest neighbors begin to suspect the truth.

When the northbound good ship Ita comes into Bahía with her captain dead, Vasco - the only licenced captain in the area - is dragooned into completing her voyage up the coast to Belém as master (with the understanding that he will be free to call on the first mate for all important decisions). On the voyage, Vasco enjoys himselt, whiling away the time in social activities and in pursuing a lady passenger of forty, to whom he becomes engaged. But deceiving sailors turns out to be not so easy as dazzling landlubbers, and what t happens then and thereafter is almost (but not quite) beyond belief." - from the dj.

Henry Walter Bates, b. February 8, 1825, Leicester; d. February 16, 1892, London), was an important mid-century English naturalist, whose main contributions centred around mimicry in the animal kingdom.

"The Naturalist on the River Amazons" was so important and highly regarded upon its publication, that Charles Darwin dubbed it to be among the best books of natural history travel-writing ever publishing in England.

"In the autumn of 1847 Mr. A.[lfred] R.[ussell] Wallace, who has since acquired wide fame in connection with the Darwinian theory of Natural Selection, proposed to me a joint expedition to the river Amazons, for the purpose of exploring the Natural History of its banks; the plan being to make for ourselves a collection of objects, dispose of the duplicates in London to pay expenses, and gather facts, as Mr. Wallace expressed it in one his letters, 'towards solving the problem of the origin of species'. [...] My companion left the country at the end of four years; [...] I remained seven years longer, returning home in July, 1959. [...] The part of the Amazons region where I resided longest being unexplored country to the Naturalist, no less than 8000 of the species here enumerated were new to science."- from the preface.

Pp (6),1-[182],(4). 8vo, hardcover,yellow papewr covered boards, black target to front board, black lettering to spine. "Rife with political corruption, sex, jealousy and frustrated pa ssion, The Skating Rink is a darkly atmospheric chronicle of one summer season in the seaside town of Z, on the Costa Brava, north of Barcelona. The story revolves around the beautiful figure-skating champion Nuria Marti. When she is suddenly dropped from the Olympic team a besotted admirer builds asecret ice rink for her in the ruins of an old mansion on the outskirts of town. What he doesn’t tell her is that he paid for it using embezzled publ ic funds; but such a betrayal is only the beginning and the skating rink soon becomes a crime scene… Told in short suspenseful chapters by three alternating male narrators – a corrupt and pompous civil servant, a beleaguered,yet still romantic, itinerant poet, and a duplicitous local entrepreneur – The Skating Rink is a wholly engrossing tale of murder and its motives." ( from the dj). Roberto Bolaño Ávalos (1953 - 2003) was a Chilean novelist, short-story writer, poet and essayist. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 25.00
