2 ANDERSON, Frank J. Submarines, Diving and the Underwater World : A Bibliography
Archon, 1975, 
ANDERSON, Frank J., (comp.). Submarines, Diving, and the Underwater World: A Bibliography. Compiled and Edited by Frank J. Anderson. (Hamden, Connecticut) : Archon Books, 1975. First Edition. Pp (4),v-ix,(1),1-238. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. “In one alphabetical sequence, over 1,500 titles (plus authors and cross-references) cover historical works, technicaltreatises, biographical memoirs, official documents, bibliographies, and f iction for all tastes and ages. One- half the entries deal with submarines in war, but as naval combat is no longer their only use, the submarine and diving in scientific research, engineering and oceanology, and recreation account for the other titles referenced. Fundamental information on topics as diverse as ocean currents, salinity, bottom mapping; underwater archaeology; physiological and psychological experimentation; drilling, mining, and construction; underwater photography, marine life, and scuba diving as a sport; are integrated here with the victories, rescues, and disasters of battle, and the salvage efforts made in times of war and peace alike.” - from the dj. “Works regarding the technological advances made in man's 'mastery' of the sea are listed; such as accounts of bathyscaphe probes, underwater drift voyages, Sealab living, and deep diving with the use of the aqualung. The ocean's contempt of man's 'mastery' is also recorded in the literature of submarine disasters and the subsequent rescue and salvage attempts. The books in this list range over a period of more than 400 years of man's attempts to use the underwater world for his own ends. […] The books listed arewritten in various languages with English-language books predominating. Th ere is a good representation of books in French and in German. A few titlesin Russian and Spanish are included, along with a token representation of Dutch, Hungarian, Japanese, Scandinavian, and Turkish language books.” – p.vii.

Macmillan Company of Canada Limited, Toronto, 1957, 
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

Illustrated with maps. 8vo, blue boards, silver lettering to spine. "Few historical novelists have ever embarked on a project as challenging as John Biggins's series of World War I adventure novels. And few have received sucheager accolades: Reviewers from The New York Times to Publishers Weekly ha ve praised this exciting writer as a vital and worthy successor to the mantles of Patrick O'Brian and C. S. Forester. "The Two-Headed Eagle is the breakout book in Biggins's series: a story of five months of hair-raising adventure on the Italian front in which young Otto Prohaska, the hero of A Sailor of Austria and The Emperor's Coloured Coat, entrusts his life to the nascent, unreliable, and terrifying Imperial and Royal Austro-Hungarian FlyingService. It is the summer of 1916, and Otto, joined by his self-willed aer ial chauffeur Sergeant-Pilot Toth, entrusts his life to a succession of flimsy biplanes in the sky above war-torn Alpine battlefields. On the ground, the rickety Habsburg empire has begun its final slide to disaster. And in the air is the unmistakable sense that history, poignant and ironic and always surprising, is erupting all around them. "Written with craft, style, andan astonishing breadth of emotion, The Two-Headed Eagle is the continuatio n of a remarkable series." from the dj.

"'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.
