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 The book is illustrated by a large number of photographs and drawings, many of them hitherto unpublished, and contains an extensive bibliography."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. Malaria in Central Europe (Austria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Switzerland). 7. Malaria in France. 8. Malaria in Germany. 9. Malaria in Italy. 10. Malaria in the Netherlands and Belgium. 11.

18 BUDGELL, Anne MUNDY, Barbara GROVE, Barbara Mundy Dear Everybody : A Woman's Journey from Park Avenue to a Labrador Trapline.First Edition
Boulder Publications, Portugal Cove-St Philip's, NF, 2013, ISBN:192709917X 
BUDGELL, Anne. Dear Everybody : A Woman's Journey from Park Avenue to a Labrador Trapline. (Portugal Cove - St. Philip's, NF) : Boulder Publications, (2013). First Printing. Pp (4),v-xvii,(1),19-319,(1) + 12-page central section of b&w photos. Maps in text. 8vo, white photo-illustrated cardcovers. "In 1944, Manhattan socialite Barbara Mundy travelled to tiny North West River, Labrador, to volunteer with the Grenfell Mission. She didn't expect to feel so at home in the wilds of Labrador, more than she ever had in New York's high society. She discovered a love for hunting, canoeing, and camping—and for fur trapper Russell Groves. During her first two years in North West River, Barbara wrote detailed carbon-copied letters to 'Everybody.' Anne Budgell uses these letters, as well as a diary Barbara kept during the two winters she spent on the trapline with her husband, to tell her remarkable story.
