5 ADAMS, Ansel, and John MUIR MUIR, John ADAMS, Ansel MAUK, Charlotte E. (ed.) Yosemite and the Sierra Nevada. First Edition in dustjacket
Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston, 1948, 
ADAMS, Ansel, and John MUIR. Yosemite and the Sierra Nevada. Photographs byAnsel Adams. Sel;ections from the Works of John Muir. Edited by Charlotte E. Mauk. Boston : Houghton Mifflin Company, 1948. First Edition. Pp (12),ix-xix,(5),3-132,(2),+ 64 leaves of black-and-white plates. Large 8vo, tan cloth, brown lettering to front board and spine. "This book is an interpretation, in text and photographs, of Yosemite Valley and the Sierra Nevada range of mountains. the text is from the works of John Muir, a naturalist whosewriting reveals the excitement and beauty and strength in a world untouche d by man. the photographs were created by Ansel Adams, whose camera discovers that which lies before us all - and magically, what our eyes may fail tocommunicate to our hearts. this combination of word and image creates a st atement of grater intensity than either word or image alone. Sixty-four photographs are beautifully reproduced in this big book. Mr. Adams has chosen phrases from Muir which, facing the photographs, are perfect captions. These photographs are the work of several years, and almost all are here reproduced for the first time. The text has been taken from Mountains of California, The Yosemite, My First Summer in the Sierra, and others of Muir's best-known book. the selections have been wove into a unified description of thecountry, in all seasons and in all mods, by Miss Charlotte Mauk of Berkele y, California. The lines which delimit Yosemite on a map have no meaning onthe high watershed ridges which are the geographic boundaries of the Park. In actuality, the spirit of Yosemite depends on an environment which exten ds to the Pacific and to the clear bleak loneliness of the deserts beyond the Sierra crest. Begin with the rolling hills of the Coast Range and the wide expanse of the Central Valley. Climb, as Muir did when he was shepherding his flocks, the rugged foothills of the Sierra. See Yosemite in its high-mountain matrix; cross the Sierra to the wild and barren beauty of Mono; look at Tahoe on the north, the great ranges south of Yosemite, and the tremendous tossing wall of the east face of the Sierra. Behold mountains and quiet pools, twigs, clouds, canyons, stones - great vistas and intimate realities." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction. A biography of John Muir. Selections from the Works of John Muir : I. The Sierra Nevada : The range of light; The snow and the glaciers. II. The Yosemite : Into the mountains; Characteristics of the canyons; The incomparable Yosemite; The approach to thevalley; The first view - the Bridal Veil; General features of the valley; The upper canyons; Natural features near the valley; Down the Yosemite Creek: The Yosemite Fall; A wonderful ascent; The grandeur of Yosemite Fall; The Nevada Fall; The Vernall Fall; The Illilouette Fall; The beauty of the rainbows.

6 AGUIRRE, Robert W. International Straits of the World, Vol.15 Panama Canal.. Volume 15 in the International Straits of the World series. First Edition
Martinus Nijhoff, Leiden / Boston, 2010, ISBN:9004177280 
AGUIRRE, Robert W. The Panama Canal. Leiden / Boston : Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 2010. First Edition. Pp. (4),[v]-xii,(2),[1]-293,(5). Maps, tables, illustrations in text. 8vo, green paper-covered boards, light green lettering to front & spine. Volume 15 in the International Straits of the World series. "The relationship between straits and interoceanic canals has always been ambiguous. Unlike straits, interoceanic canals are neither natural nor subject to a universal legal regime like the Law of the Sea. However, straits and interoceanic canals share comparable historical experiences due to their geographic similarities. Suspending interest in a purely legal analysis, The Panama Canal lets logic yield to experience and considers the Panama Canal as an 'artificial strait'. The volume recasts the dynamic events that have changed the Panama Canal in the context of three interactive elements: environments, flows, and territoriality. Cleverly deciphering from history how changes in one element led to changes in another, The Panama Canal suggests a considerably new perspective for viewing the canal's past and future." - from rear cover.

Garrison & Morton, Medical Bibliography (5th edition) 5546.10.

"This book is the first to give a well-documented, illustrated survey of the historical background to disease caused by fungi in man and domesticated animals. Medical and veterinary mycology includes the study of infectious diseases caused by actinomycetes and allergic conditions induced by both fungi and actinomycetes, and their history is also described here. The foundations of medical mycology have been laid over the past centuries but have only been completed during recent decades. This is therefore an appropriate moment to write the history of this specialty, which involves the collaboration of medically qualified and non-medically trained workers. Dr Ainsworth's long and varied career in mycology fits him ideally to the task he has undertaken and he has drawn on his experience to provide an invaluable scholarly perspective of the area." (from the dj).

McGill-Queen's University Press, Montreal & Kingston, 2012, ISBN:9780773540033 
ALFOLDY, Sandra. The Allied Arts : Architecture and Craft in Postwar Canada. Montreal and Kingston: McGill-Queens University Press, (2012). Pp. (10),[xi]-xv,(9) of illustrations,[1]-227,(1). Illustrated, sometimes in colour. Large 8vo, illustrated blue and green card covers with white spine, yellow and white lettering to front cover, black lettering to spine, french flaps.A volume in the McGill-Queen's/Beaverbrook Canadian Foundation Studies in Art History series. "During periods of close collaboration, championed by figures like John Ruskin and William Morris, architecture and craft were referred to as 'the allied arts'. By the mid-twentieth century, however, it was more common for the two disciplines to be considered distinct professional fields, with architecture having little to do with studio craft. 'The Allied Arts' investigates the history of the complex relationship between craft and architecture by examining their intersection in Canadian public buildings. Sandra Alfoldy explains the challenges facing the development of public craft and documents the largely ignored public craft commissions of the post-war era. The book highlights theg global concerns of material, scale, form, ornament, and identity shared by architects and craftspeople. It alsostudies the ways in which the allied arts are mediated by institutions and the fragility of craft commissions that were once considered an integral p art of the built environment. Considering a wide range of craftspeople, materials, and forms -- from the ceramics of Jack Sures and Jordi Bonet to thetextile work of Mariette Rousseau-Vermette and Carole Sabiston -- Alfoldy celebrates the successes of architectural craftsmanship, developing ideas about the complex relationship between architecture and craft that reach well beyond national boundaries." - from the rear cover.

AMBASZ, Emilio (ed.). Italy : The New Domestic Landscape : Achievements andProblems of Italian Design. New York : The Museum of Modern Art, in collab oration with Centro Di, Florence, (April 1972).

"During the last decade, the emergence of Italy as the dominant force in design has had a profound influence in Europe and the Americas. This phenomenon is important not only becasue of the high quality and diversity of the forms produced, but also because it has generated a lively debate on the sociocultural implications of product design, raising questionsof vital concern to designers throughout the world. For many designers, th e aesthetic quality of individual objects intended for private consumption has become irrelevant in the face of such pressing problems as poverty, urban decay, and the pollution of the environment now encountered in all industrialized countries. Consequently, they are increasingly shifting the focusof their attention from the well-designed object to man's total environmen t, seeing the designer's function as one that can mold patterns of behaviorby creating new settings for freeer, mor adaptable life styles. [...] This publication, issued in conjunction with a major exhibition at The Museum o f Modern Art, is the first to deal comprehensively with these challenging developments. Over 150 objects of Italian design of the past ten years have been selceted for the show and all are reproduced in color or black-and-white, as are the dozen environments by well-known Italian designers speciallycommissioned for the occasion."

AMIT, Vered, and Nigel RAPPORT. The Trouble with Community : Anthropological Reflections on Movement, Identity and Collectivity. London / Sterling, VA: Pluto Press, (2002). First Paperback Printing. Pp (6),1-185,(1). Index. 8vo, illustrated white card covers, lettered in black. "'Community' is one of social science's longest-standing concepts. The assumption, of much social science, has been that it is in communities -- and to communities -- that human individuals, as social and cultural beings, belong. Communities aresaid to embody that interactive environment from which individuals' identi ties and senses of self derive, and in which they continue to dwell. The trouble with 'community' is that this is not necessarily so; the personal social networks of individuals' actual experience crosscut collective categories, situations and institutions. Communities can prove unviable or imprisoning; the reality of community life and identity can often be very differentfrom the ideology and the ideal. In this provocative new book, anthropolog ists Vered Amit and Nigel Rapport draw on their various ethnographic experiences to reappraise the concept and the reality of 'community', in the light of globalization, religious fundamentalism, identity politics, and renascent localisms. How might anthropology better apprehend social identities which are intrinsically plural, transgressive and ironic? What has anthropology to say about the way in which civil society might hope to accommodate the on-going construction and the rightful expression of such migrant identities? Nigel Rapport and Vered Amit give their own answers to these questionsbefore entering into dialogue to assess each other's positions." (from the back cover).

ANDERSON, M. S. Historians and Eighteenth Century Europe 1715-1789. Òxford : Clarendon Press, 1979. First Edition. Pp (4),[v]-vi,(2),[1]-251,(1). Index. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "This book surveys the development, over the last two centuries or more, of historians' ideas and views about the most important issues in the history of eighteenth-century Europe.Some aspects of that history have aroused violent and prolonged controvers y which is still active today. Was the great French Revolution in some way immanent in the structure of the Old Regime in France and thus inevitable? Or was that structure fundamentally healthy and brought down in revolution only by the malice of dissident groups or by mere ill-luck? Was the Enlightenment a great movement of intellectual and therefore ot social and political liberation, or a destructive assault on the bonds which held states and societies together? These questions bit'terly divided contemporary observers: they still divide historians today. The character and achievement of thegreat 'Enlightened Despots' of the period and the origins of the Industria l Revolution in Britain are other controversial issues which bulk iarge in the book. In each case, on the basis of a wide-ranging survey of writing infive languages, the development of historians' thinking is analysed. The i nfluence on that thinking of the social, political and intellectual environment in which individual scholars worked, and the importance of deweloping ideas about the nature and scope of history in general, are stressed."
