2 BHUTTO, Zulfikar Ali CHOPRA, Pran If I am Assassinated... Second Printing in dustjacket
Vikas Publishing House Pvt Ltd, New Delhi, Bombay, Bangalore, Calcutta, Kanpur, 1979, ISBN:0706908074 
BHUTTO, Zulfikar Ali. "If I am Assassinated".. With an introduction by PranChopra. New Delhi, Bombay, Bangalore, Calcutta, Kanpur : Vikas Publishing House Pvt Ltd, (1979). Second Printing. Pp (8),[ix]-xxxvi,[1]-234,(2). 8vo,black cloth, red lettering to spine. "This book nearly perished. It was bl acked out in Pakistan. Its publication was banned. The press in which Bhutto's counsel tried to have it printed was sealed. But anonymous enterprise smuggled it out of the "stinking death cell" in which the former President and Prime Minister of Pakistan Zulfikar Ali Bhutto wrote it, "with the paperresting on my knee." This book contains the text of a document presented b y Bhutto to the Supreme Court of Pakistan in his appeal against the death sentence passed on him by the Lahore High Court. The disclosures were too dangerous, too sensational for the Pakistan rulers to face publicly. He accused them of conspiring with a foreign power, of being bribed by it to overthrow him because of the popularity he enjoyed among his own people. He clearly hints at the USA and some other countries too. He names names and specific sums and makes his appeal a classic case of the accused putting the accuser in the dock. Bhutto knew Pakistan as no one else did, and impending death had made his insights even sharper; it also made him more fearless in tearing the veil off what went on in Pakistan under its 3 military Presidents, General Ayub, General Yahya, and General Zia. The result is the most revealing book on Pakistan to be published yet." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction. 1. White Paper or White Lies. 2. Misrepresentation. 3. "Warfare,"Rigging and Fraud. 4. The Election Commission. 5. The Government Machine. 6. The "Larkana Plan". 7. Rigged or Fair? 8. The Inner Cancer. 9. The External Crisis. 10. Death Knell. 11. Foreign Hand. 12. The Death Cell and History. 13. The Hour has Struck. Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was the ninth Prime Minister of Pakistan and its fourth President. Revered as Quaid-i-Awam, he founded the Pakistan People's Party and served as its chairman until his execution in 1979. He was the father of Pakistan's 11th Prime Minster, Benazir Bhutto.

8 CHAMBERS, O. Judith. What Women These Christians Have! First Edition

CHAMBERS, O. Judith. What Women These Christians Have! N.pl. [Moncton, New Brunswick] : (United Baptist Woman's Missionary Union of the Atlantic Provinces, 2002). [Although there is no attribution in the book, this was indeed printed and bound by the Gaspereau Press in Kentville, Nova Scotia, as confirmed to me by Gary Dunfield of that excellent press]. First Edition. Pp (10),11-190,(2). Illustrated with 153 b&w photos. 8vo, cream card covers with red titles to front and spine.

“This is a book written by and about women. It is a history of thirty years, of the UBWMU (1970-2000); a history of the women who actively served this organization and the women who served on the mission fields during this time.

The first half of the book will give you a collage of the activities administered, i.e., DVBS and Camp Workers, World Wide Guild, CGIT. Mission Band and Baby Band. There is a glimpse into the active lives of our past-presidents and the decisions made over the years.

The second half of the book takes us into the lives of the women who served in the many developing countries of the world under our Canadian Baptist Ministries. Each woman gives us a retrospective view of their experience in those years.

It is a book that has been written with awe and admiration for those who have been part of our history. It is for your enjoyment as well as being a record of our past.” - from the back cover.

They Also Ran: the Story of the Men Who Were Defeated for the Presidency. Signed and with Irving Stone Letter to Mrs Darrow, DARROW, Mrs. Clarence STONE, Irving
17 DARROW, Mrs. Clarence STONE, Irving They Also Ran: the Story of the Men Who Were Defeated for the Presidency. Signed and with Irving Stone Letter to Mrs Darrow
1944, 
(DARROW, Mrs. Clarence.) Irving STONE. They Also Ran: the Story of the Men Who Were Defeated for the Presidency. New York: Doubleday, Doran, 1944. Autograph presentation copy -- to Mrs. Clarence Darrow -- signed and dated. Pp. xi, [vi], 389. 8vo. Orig. green cloth with titling to spine in bronze. With dust jacket. -- WITH -- TLS of Irving Stone, of same date, to Mrs. Darrow. The publication of Stone's biography of Darrow, Clarence Darrow for the Defense, preceded that of They Also Ran by two years. Stone wrote to the widow of Clarence Darrow in a separately mailed letter which begins with his mentioning the pleasure he has of sending her a copy of the book. The inscription to Mrs. Darrow on the half-title of They Also Ran reads: "For Mrs Clarence Darrow -- great wife, great marital partner, great American woman. With admiration and love, Irving Stone / Encino Calif / April 7, 1944"; while the letter speaks in brief of Stone's several demanding projects at the time, as well as of thoughts he is sure Mrs. Darrow shares on the influence of Clarence Darrow for the Defense in perpetuating the name of her late husband. The book is very good, having the usual light browning throughout dueto its publication on war-time paper. The book's dustjacket is fair (but u nfaded), being rather brittle overall, and having considerable chipping along extremities with some loss of design. The letter is very good, showing evidence of some moderate handling, and is accompanied by its neatly opened envelope. For both the book and letter. 2,000.00

19 DICKSON, R.J. Ulster-Scot Historical Series, 1. Ulster Emigration to Colonial America, 1718-1775. First Edition in dustjacket.
Routledge and Kegan Paul, London, 1966, 
DICKSON, R.J. Ulster Emigration to Colonial America, 1718-1775. London: Routledge and Kegan Paul, (1966). First Printing. Pp. (4),v-xiv,1-320,(2). 8vo, green cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Volume One in the Ulster-Scot Historical Series. "Much has been written of the contribution of the Scotch-Irish to the making of the United States of America -- the ten Presidents of direct Scotch-Irish stock, the frontiersmen such as Davy Crockett, household names such as Sam Houston of Texas and Stonewall Jackson. But why were these people in America at all? Why was it that they or their fathers or grandfathers had not remained in Ireland to make history there? It may have been true that the Scotch-Irish kept the Sabbath and everything else they could lay their hands on. It may also have been true that, when they reached America, the Scotch-Irish fell on their knees and worshipped God and then fell on the Indians. But if their outlook was narrow and harsh -- and it was, surely, at least partly due to land-hunger and the natural instinct of self-preservation -- was it not mainly due to a harsh background? This study answers questions such as these and tells why and by what means more than ahundred thousand Scotch-Irish men, women and children uprooted themselves and opted to cross the wide eighteenth-century Atlantic Ocean to settle in a land whose dangers were painted in horrific terms by the local newspapers." - from the dustjacket.
