When he reaches the coast some weeks from now, he will board a small tramp steamer named the Comedian and sail for the Galapagos Islands.

Some years later he was the proprietor of the Hapsburg, one of the ftnest restaurants in New York. Recently he has devoted ail the time he could spare from his wife and his daughter to writing and illustrating. Hansi and The Golden Basket are two books from his pen whose charming individuality has endeared them togrown- ups as well as to the children for whom they were made. The studio of Jascha Heifetz and the stage decor for Noah stand to his credit, as do articles, stories, and illustrations in Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Town and Country, Fortune, and Story."

"It has been repeatedly represented to me by disinterested friends, that among the innumerable works of both fact and fiction dealing with the sea, there are none telling in a comprehensive way whatare the conditions of life in the Merchant Service; in other words, that t here is no work to which a parent, yielding to his son's importunity to be allowed to go to sea, and seeking to know something of the nature of thingson board of a merchant ship in detail, can turn with the assurance that he may there find what he needs.

13 CANTWELL, Robert When We Were Good : The Folk Revival. First Edition nin dustjacket

CANTWELL, Robert. When We Were Good : The Folk Revival. Cambridge, Massachusetts / London, England : Harvard University Press, 1996. First Edition. Pp(6),[vii]-viii,(4),[1]-412,(8). Illustrated. Index. 8vo, red cloth spine, tan paper covered boards, black lettering to spine. "When We Were Good traces the many and varied cultural influences on the folk revival of the sixties: early nineteenth-century blackface minstrelsy; the Jewish entertainmentand political cultures of New York in the 1930s; the Almanac singers and t he wartime crises of the 1940s; the watershed record album Folkways Anthology of American Folk Music; and finally the cold-war reactionism of the 1950s that drove the folksong movement, just as Pete Seeger and the Weavers were putting "On Top of Old Smokey" and "Goodnight, Irene" on the Hit Parade, into a children's underground of schools, summer camps, and colleges, planting the seeds of the folk revival to come. The book is not so much a history as a study of the cultural process itself, what the author calls the dreamwork of history. Cantwell shows how a body of music once enlisted on behalf of the labor movement antifascism, New Deal recovery efforts, and many other progressive causes of the 1930s was refashioned as an instrument of self-discovery, even as it found new agenda and styles in the peace, civil rights, and beat movements. At Washington Square and the Newport Folk Festival, on college campuses and in concert halls across the country, the folk revival gave voice to the generational tidal wave of postwar youth, going backto the basics and trying to be very, very good. In this capacious analysis of the ideologies, traditions, and personalities that created an extraordi nary moment in American popular culture, Cantwell explores the idea of folkat the deepest level. Taking up some of the more obdurate problems in cult ural studies - racial identity, art and politics, regional allegiances, class differences - he shows how the folk revival was a search for authentic democracy, with compelling lessons for our own time." (from the dj). Contents : Prologue: Tom Dooley : History of a Song. 1. We Are the Folk : Backgrounds of the Revival. 2. The New Minstrelsy : Jim Crow and John Henry. 3.

From dust jacket: "Anew collection of dramatic true stories from the two World Wars of courage ous men and women who risked their lives on daring secret missions into enemy territory. These valiant individuals harassed the enemy wherever they were most vulnerable. Many German U-Boats in World War I were put out of action by innocent-looking tramp steamers manned by secret agents; many enemy aircraft were sabotaged during World war II by Special Air service operations in North Africa; and many lives were saved by the incredible heroism of French and Polish resistance workers who spied out the secrets of the GermanV-1 and V-2 rockets. There were those whose bravery prepared the way for t he crucial D-day landings; and those whose missions were so secret that thereal reasons why they received their country's highest award for valour we re known only to the privileged few. "These are among the gripping accountswhich illustrate the supreme gallantry of secret operators who well knew t he dreadful fate that awaited them if they fell into enemy hands. To them the free nations are immensely indebted, for undoubtedly their noble acts were vital to the triumph of liberty over tyranny. " - from the dj. fntroduction Chapters : 1.

"This, the 1914-1915 diary of Thomas Benjamin Dixon, is a well-observed and compassionate account of the first year of World War I as seen through the eyes of a young naval surgeon who in later life rose to the rank ofSurgeon Captain and was appointed honorary physician to the King. Dixon's diary of life at sea includes an eye-witness acccount of the Battle of the Falklands, in which Dixon's ship HMS Kent chased adn then sank the Nurnbergafter a running battle, and a description of the subsequent gruelling sear ch for the German light cruiser Dresden and her destruction by HMS Kent at Juan Fernandez on 14 March 1915. Born in China in 1886, the son of missionaries who were killed during the Boxer Rebellion, T. B. Dixon was brought upby his guardians in England and subsequently qualified as a doctor at Univ ersity College Hospital, London. With the start of World War I in 1914 T. B. Dixon found himself at the age ol twenty-eight, as a recently commissioned junior surgeon on H.M.S Kent, bound for the waters of South America. Behind him he left his friends, his medical practice and his young wife who wasexpecting their second child. Dogged by seasickness and the strangeness of his new surroundings Dixon nevertheless threw himself wholeheartedly into life aboard ship and in his spare time chronicled both the tedium of chasing tramp steamers and coaling at sea and the excitement of coming face to face with the enemy. The diary that T. B. Dixon produced tells simply and movingly the story of his own struggles, and of the struggles of the world outside where great empires were locked in combat. This is one man's view of the war that changed the face of that world." - from the dust jacket. Contents: Foreword by Admiral Sir John Bush; Introduction by Rose Dixon, Thomas'sgrandaughter; 1.
